I am committed to being one of your '100 pounders,' a 100 lb. weight loss that is! I love to cook and now I'm enjoying creating living meals! Also, the beer I could not stay away from since 1979 is history along with the cigars!!! God bless all of you at HD! Jesus really has his hand on your ministry!
Our blood pressure and cholesterol readings are now low to normal--the best readings in ten years. At ages 68 and 63, we are excited about a new beginning as we continue to do what God has asked us to do--love Him, love each other, and nourish our bodies with the foods that God originally designed for us.
I didn't even consider any other treatment for my condition before considering The Hallelujah Diet. The reason is that I listened to my mother. She is a Hallelujah Acres Health Minister, and already had been for some time when I was diagnosed. I had seen her adopt The Hallelujah Diet to address some health issues, but I wasn't on board yet. After all, I was healthy; why would I need to change my diet? However, I always vowed that, if I needed to try the diet for health reasons, I would. Well, it didn't take long after life kicked me in the pants to realize that The Hallelujah Diet would be good for me too, not just for my mother.
Then he recommended that I have my leg amputated below the knee, get a prosthesis, and get on with my life. I was not ready for that! Since making the diet change two months ago, I have lost 25 pounds, my ulcerated toe has nearly healed, and I am now down to only 5 units of insulin twice a day. I plan on being off all insulin soon!
Since making the diet change, I have lost 18-pounds; improved eye- sight; no more acid reflux; no more chronic headaches or sore feet; eyesight has improved; and I now have lots of energy.
I cried as I realized that she was God's confirmation to me that this Hallelujah Diet was the answer to my prayers.
At the time, I didn't consider myself to have many health problems (quite delusional I might add), but I knew that if I didn't do this diet with Dave it wouldn't be successful, as I was the one preparing our family's meals. I did not want to loose my husband to disease and was willing to do anything to help him. With my Lord at my side I began to consume knowledge to understand how to do this thing, how to feed my family, how to renew my mind.
But most of the credit goes to a 5' 2 smiling angel from the rugged mountains of Norway, my beloved wife who persisted in trying to get me to change my diet. Who in your life is trying to convince you of a great truth about health? Do you listen? Or will your heart need to shake a little first.
Since going on the Hallelujah Diet I have recovered from night blindness, torn cartilage in right knee, pain in my feet, and have lost weight.
In November 2004, we attended Health Ministry training at Hallelujah Acres, where we both received our certificates as Health Ministers. As of this writing, my health has been restored and I have been able to stop all medications! My allergies are gone! I no longer have severe headaches! And I have more energy than I have had in years! I have been released by my hematologist/oncologist, and my depression is gone! I failed to mention that I have had three skin cancers removed from my face and have had many pre-cancers frozen off with liquid nitrogen. In early summer 2004, my dermatologist started me on Efudex, chemotherapy in cream form that I used all over my face and head. This was to be a lifetime sentence, and I was told to stay out of the sun. After starting the Hallelujah Acres lifestyle, I spent many days in the sun while boating, water skiing, walking, hiking, etc. . ., and yet in September 2004, my dermatologist released me! In addition to all this, I have lost 28 pounds (going from 190 to 162) and my wife has lost 25 pounds.
Since going on the Hallelujah Diet six months ago, all the physical problems my family and I had suffered with are gone!!! As I wrote this testimony letter, I cried as I wrote down all the physical problems that have gone away since changing what I was eating and feeding my family. It is amazing what a difference a simple diet change has made in our family's health, and I thank the Lord every day.
