Procedure for Extracting Benefits from Bay Leaves?

This morning I went out and observed my Laural tree (bush form) needed pruning AGAIN! I was searching the web and found out it has many medicinal properties, one being it can lower blood sugar. Since a family member is diabetic, I'd like to know how to use this amazing herb for that purpose.

Should I make tea out of it? Find a recipe for a tincture? Dry the leaves, roll them, and have him smoke them? :-) I was kidding about that, but maybe I could put them in foil packets, and use them for aromatic smoke on the BBQ?

Look forward to your suggestions!
