“Dear George, I became a Health Minister in 2004 after my daughter was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 34. We were both on The Hallelujah Diet because in addition to my daughter having breast cancer, I was suffering with rheumatoid arthritis. Somehow my daughter, who was seeing such incredible improvement with her cancer, got off The Hallelujah Diet and became so sick she yielded to the doctor’s continual efforts to accept chemotherapy.
The chemotherapy ended up being the cause of her death in July 2008.
“As for me, I also went off The Hallelujah Diet and since then have been suffering a lot with flare-ups of my rheumatoid arthritis. My Rheumatologist put me on Humara and injections every two weeks, but my condition only worsened. Then last May my doctor put me on Orencia which was helping. Then I developed gum infections and was given antibiotics. Then in 2010 I had a knee replacement. I do not like what is happening to me.
“For the past three days I have been praying and crying out to God to show me in what direction I should go to receive my healing and what are the things that are hindering my healing? I believe God is the great physician and my healer and not drugs. Unfortunately I went to my Rheumatologist today because of severe joint pain. He gave me a cortisone injection which gave me some temporary relief and that is why I am writing you. My doctor wants to start Orencia infusions next week.
“After reading your article on arthritis in the Hallelujah Acres Health Tip archives at 4:00 a.m. early this morning, I believe God is showing and leading me back to The Hallelujah Diet which so significantly improved my arthritic condition in 2004. I believe The Hallelujah Diet is the answer to my healing. What do you think I should do? What would you do if you were in my shoes? I am confused and hurting.”
Rev. Malkmus Responds
Dear Betty, I was so saddened by your letter. What happened? Both you and your daughter did so well on The Hallelujah Diet! Why did you ever turn away from it?
As I say so often in my Health Tips, God’s Way is the ONLY way to true health, and, I believe, the only way you will ever experience improved health. The traditional approach to health – drugs – only leads a person to ever more drugs and the continued deterioration of health that you personally experienced with your daughter and now with yourself. But I also believe that as long as there is life and breath there is hope of restoring health.
The choice to continue to follow the traditional way of dealing with your physical problems or to return to God’s Way is entirely in your hands. You know the way that both Rhonda and I have chosen. In 1981, Rhonda was diagnosed with the same kind of arthritis that afflicts you. In 1991 she adopted The Hallelujah Diet and in less than one year her arthritis symptoms were gone and have remained gone to this very day… 21 years later.
But that is only because she has remained on The Hallelujah Diet these past 21 years.
You asked what I would do if I were you. I would do exactly what Rhonda did! And if I could afford it, I would get myself to a Hallelujah Acres Lifestyle Center just as quickly as possible and learn how to immerse myself once again in The Hallelujah Diet.
And by the way, I have personally been on The Hallelujah Diet now for nearly 37 years and remain in good health as I approach my 80th birthday.
Keep me posted on your choice and progress. Our prayers are with you!
Rev. George Malkmus
