(NaturalNews) Is it possible to reverse type 1 diabetes (T1D, previously known as insulin-dependent diabetes or IDDM) simply by enjoying a raw food diet? According to Dr. Kirt Tyson, a naturopathic doctor who practices in Arizona, eating a diet that primarily consists of raw foods can dramatically reduce blood sugar levels in type 1 diabetics, perhaps even stopping their insulin dependency.

How one doctor stopped his insulin dependence

Dr. Tyson speaks from experience. A former self-proclaimed fast food junkie and a type 1 diabetic himself, he now believes in the amazing power of eating raw.

During an interview with Robyn Openshaw, also known as Green Smoothie Girl and author of "12 Steps to Whole Foods," he revealed that, prior to starting a raw food diet, his blood sugar level was extremely high (diabetic ketoacidosis) at around 300 mg/dL. Anything above 240 mg/dL is cause for concern.

However, within 2-3 weeks of eating raw foods - nuts, seeds and vegetables with no dairy, meat or fruits - he checked his blood sugar again. The unbelievable result? His blood sugar level dropped to an acceptable, safe range: 76 mg/dL. Today, he says he only needs insulin if he becomes sick (which causes blood sugar levels to rise).

Raw foods: what's best for diabetics?

The American Diabetes Association's website lists top super foods for diabetics. Among them are nuts and seeds such as walnuts and flax, as well as vegetables - the darker and leafier, the better. These suggestions align with the raw food diet lifestyle that worked for Dr. Tyson.

Other diabetics following a raw food diet often share their food suggestions in forums. Some of their preferences include:

- Chia Seeds
- Hemp Seeds
- Almonds
- Pecans
- Fenugreek leaves
- Dandelion leaves

According to the World Health Organization, approximately 20 million people worldwide have T1D.
