I watch the controversy over Devil's Claw and I have to
wonder if we sometimes let the forest obscure the trees. This
herb is 50% alcohol, known to lower the blood sugar level.
What's left supposedly has the magical ability to detect low
blood sugar and raise it, while, at the same time recognizing
high blood sugar and lowering it. And that's ignoring that
fact that the "what's left" part could well be most anything,
since there are no controls over it's production.

Why are there no documented, provable success stories?
