(NaturalNews) Eliminating meat and dairy, and including fruit smoothies and orange juice into the diet, has helped one woman normalize blood sugar levels.

"I have diabetes and I was very worried that more carbs and fruit and less protein would mean my blood sugar would be harder to manage," said the senior member at

Additionally, the woman reports increased energy, weight loss and improved digestion. Her body is rejecting some medications, and it appears it is handling her skin issues (scalp psoriasis, rash, acne, pimples) on it's own, albeit very aggressively.

Legumes lower blood pressure and improve blood sugar

A study that appeared in Online First by Archives of Internal Medicine involving 121 people with Type II diabetes, who were on anti-diabetic medication, split the group between those who increased legumes by at least one cup per day, and those who increased the amount of whole wheat foods.

The results of the study caused the authors to support the consumption of legumes. "Legume consumption of approximately 190 grams per day (one cup) seems to contribute usefully to a low-GI diet and reduce CHD risk through a reduction in BP," said David J.A. Jenkins, MD, of the University of Toronto and St. Michael's Hospital.

Eating raw nuts can stave off diabetes, as well as heart disease

Many dieters begin to consume more nuts as they switch to more of a raw food and/or vegan diet. As it turns out, this could be a leading factor in the numerous studies showing improved symptoms for diabetics who choose the vegan lifestyle.

"Adding one ounce of mixed nuts to the diet daily can help reduce obesity, blood pressure, and blood sugar that are all markers of metabolic syndrome that can lead to Type II diabetes and heart disease," said Kathleen Blanchard, RN, reporter for eMaxHealth.

Blanchard adds, "nuts are also packed with antioxidants to support overall health and reduce inflammation that accompanies chronic diseases like diabetes."

Many health researchers say it is more about what you take away, than what you add, to the diet, that can improve health. But as the member of points out, "more carbs and fruit" did not have any negative effects on her blood sugar levels, when some medical personnel might suggest the opposite as being true.
