I told him recently, I am probably curing things that are lurking inside my body that I don't even know I have. I didn't have a major illness or disease, and now I feel like I will be able to preserve my somewhat youthful body!
I have been on the Hallelujah Diet now for 16 months and many aspects have improved greatly. The diet has also helped everyone in our family tremendously. My teenage daughter, who had complexion problems, now has beautiful skin and the opportunity to become a model. Wow!
What is really neat, or should I say cool, both boys love BarleyMax straight from the container. Nathan is 19 months old and he knows the BarleyMax container. When he sees it he says barkie. He got up on the kitchen counter one day and opened the BarleyMax container, and was eating it with his hands. Nathan also loves carrot juice. Luke, who is 7 months old, also loves BarleyMax. He eats a � tsp. each morning, and cries for more when that is gone. Just thought I'd let you know how much these two boys love their BarleyMax.
While most of her friends are getting ear infections, upper respiratory infections, stomach aches, etc., Emily remains healthy. She has consumed carrot juice and dehydrated barley juice powder since six weeks of age. In August of 1999 we had our second child, Abby. My second pregnancy was the same as my first--wonderful! Abby was born with a beautiful complexion. She is now eight months old, still exclusively on breast milk, has been free of any sickness since birth, and has not been immunized. The Hallelujah Diet is a really wonderful way to raise a child. Sometimes it seems that raising our children on the Hallelujah Diet takes more time and effort, but the results are well worth it. It is such a blessing to have healthy children! So many people think getting sick is all part of a child growing up, but we know better.
After only four weeks on the Hallelujah Diet, I have lost 15 pounds and my hot flashes are almost non-existent. I feel wonderful and the funny part is I thought I would have all kinds of cravings for the fatty foods that were previously a part of my regular diet but I didn't!
Some of this I was doing already, but miraculously the scales began to move!!! The first time in years!! Not dramatic, but in a very confident, healthy way. Every time I weighed, it was going down to 1/4-1/2#. I couldn't even believe it. It felt as though my cells were coming alive. I felt "lighter"--not in a pounds sort of way, but a "freer, joyful, airy, kind of way". It was the first time I felt freedom from worry over calories, "what am I doing right or wrong." It felt like someone had opened the prison door. I have followed this way since then, but became more flexible at holiday times--so I lost a little ground, but not a big deal. I lost 15 of the most stubborn pounds I've ever known. I now am doing the 60 day challenge. At the 30 day point, I've lost 5 pounds with a current "stuck" going on for the last two weeks.
I am now 70 years old and have been on The Hallelujah Diet for 12 years. My health continues to improve with each passing year and I now have more energy than I had at age 30. What a privilege to be a part of Hallelujah Acres. Thanks for all you have done, are doing, and will continue to do. I wish you many more years of health.
The nurse practitioner asked him, What is your dietary pattern? He replied, Vegetarian, with no dairy.. She asked, Oh, where do you get your protein and calcium? He confidently replied, From broccoli, almonds, beans, whole grains and lots of bananas! I wish you all could have been there to see the look on her face! Then, I piped in and said, He sure is getting it from somewhere to be growing at this rate, don't you think? She looked so curiously at me and said, Well, yes, it sure seems so. I am sending this out to you all not to brag but to let you know that kids can eat healthfully on the Hallelujah Diet and grow to be big and strong!
I feel it will be very important for Nathan to follow the Hallelujah Acres plan when he starts eating. I felt badly about giving this testimony because when one improves their diet you expect all good testimonies, but I believe Nathan's healthy growth in the womb was because of God's grace and being able to nurture my body with living foods. Maybe this is why he has had none of the health problems Down Syndrome children are so disposed to. I hope when Nathan is five years old that I have an even better testimony to tell about him and his physical and mental development. Thank you for all the work you do to teach people about health.
I also want to share a testimony that recently happened to me. When I went to my eye doctor, because my eyeglasses were giving me a problem, the doctor tested me and told me that my eyesight had greatly improved and he gave me a lesser prescription. He asked me what was the secret to my improved eyesight and I told him it was a result of being on The Hallelujah Acres Diet. I thank God every day for introducing me to The Hallelujah Acres Ministry 5 years ago after being diagnosed with terminal breast cancer.
