In this Health Tip I want us to consider how we deal with physical problems in this so-called enlightened age in which we live. A day when the medical community is constantly boasting of a new medical breakthrough and incredible advances in health care.
In spite of all these claims of new knowledge and advancements, I want us to consider in this Health Tip why people are not experiencing improved health.
Also, why is the health of the American people declining more and more with each passing year, while at the same time the cost of health care continues to escalate?
The answer to these questions can be found in the Bible in the following verses:
For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain. (I Corinthians 3:19-20)
And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, and had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse. . . (Mark 5:25-26)
In the first verse above we learn what God thinks of man’s wisdom and in the second verse the healing results the medical community was obtaining during New Testament time some 2,000 years ago.
My question to you is: “Has all the additional wisdom man has gained these past 2,000 years improved the results the medical community is achieving since those words were spoken in Mark 5:25-26?” Obviously, the answer is a resounding “NO”.
How Cancer Is Dealt With Today
Cancer, in most instances, is caused by improper diet and lifestyle. Lung cancer’s primary cause is cigarette smoking. Colon, breast, prostate, and uterine cancers are caused primarily by the consumption of animal foods. In fact, the excessive protein and fats found in animal-sourced foods are the primary cause of most of today’s cancers.
If the medical community really wanted the American people to be well, they would tell the American people how by making some simple diet and lifestyle changes they could take control of their own health and prevent cancer, as well as most other diseases.
Yes my friend, if the medical community would simply tell the American people they could prevent most cancers by simply switching from an animal based diet (which almost all cancer victims have been consuming prior to diagnosis) to a plant based diet, most cancers would never develop in the first place.
Yet how many doctors tell their patients they can prevent most cancers from ever developing through a simple diet and lifestyle change? And how many of the National Health Care dollars found in the new health law are being set aside for the teaching of prevention?
Is the medical community really concerned about the health of the American people or are they rather concerned about making sure that they have a steady supply of patients they can treat with their expensive medical modalities of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery?
And if the medical community really wanted to help a person recover from a cancer after it had been detected, they would tell them to stop the consumption of all animal products and refined sugar. They would inform them that through a simple diet and lifestyle change, their cancers in most instances would simply go away and without any medical treatments of any kind.
If a person would simply eliminate the cause of their cancer, and give their body the building materials required to rebuild the immune system (broken down because of improper diet and lifestyle), most cancers would simply disappear as the body’s own self-healing mechanism kicked in and did what God designed it to do.
Sadly, after a cancer has been detected, rather than telling the patient of the necessity of a diet and lifestyle change if they want to stop the progression and reverse the cancer, the accepted treatments for most cancers today are chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. Let’s first take a look at chemotherapy:
What is chemotherapy? Here’s how Webster’s Dictionary defines it:
“… the treatment of a disease by means of chemicals that have a specific toxic effect upon the disease-producing microorganisms or that selectively destroy cancerous tissue.”
The words “toxic effect” in Webster’s Dictionary means “poisoning effect.” The original chemical used in chemotherapy was mustard gas, the same chemical used in World War I to kill soldiers on the battle field. This hideous poison has since been universally banned from use in wartime by international treaties.
Yet these same insidious poisons are injected into a cancer patient today in the hope the poison will kill the cancer cells before it kills the patient. Chemotherapy not only kills cancerous cells but good cells as well, further weakening an immune system already weakened by a bad diet and lifestyle.
What happens when a person receives chemotherapy? In last week’s Health Tip I shared the testimony of Robert from Pine Island, Minnesota which read:
As a prostate cancer patient, I was given some chemotherapy which nearly killed me. I went seeking an alternative way of dealing with my cancer and that is when I found The Hallelujah Diet. It has been a little less than a year since adopting the diet and lifestyle and during this time I have lost 75 pounds, lowered my blood pressure and cholesterol, and have more energy than I have had in years.
I don’t know about my cancer, but one thing I know that I am not going to do and that is go back to those doctors who almost killed me with their chemotherapy.
In personal conversation with Robert while here at Hallelujah Acres for Health Minister training, he shared with me that shortly after he received that first treatment of chemotherapy, he not only started vomiting (which is common), but his body started shaking violently. Nurses and doctors rushed to his aid and after a considerable amount of time were finally able to stop the violent shaking with an injection.
Robert went on to tell me that after he had recovered sufficiently to walk and regain his composure, he checked out of the hospital on his own, vowing never to go back to a doctor or hospital ever again. This experience is what led Robert to search for an alternative way of dealing with his cancer.
Recently, there was a worldwide warning of potential for radioactive iodine release coming from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex in Japan following a 9.3 magnitude earthquake and resulting tsunami.
Why the worldwide concern? When thyroid cells absorb too much radioactive iodine – either through the air or through contaminated food – it can increase the risk of thyroid cancer. Exposure to high levels of radiation can cause acute radiation syndrome (ARS), or radiation poisoning.
Potassium iodide tablets are often provided as an antidote and do offer a significant degree of protection. Personally, I am less concerned about radiation emanating from a nuclear disaster than I am about allowing the medical community to administer radiation in an effort to subdue a cancer in the body.
How Radiation Is Used To Treat Cancer
Among the potential side-effects from radiation therapies are: spontaneous pneumothorax (air in the chest cavity), mesothelioma (cancer of the lining of organs), and lung cancer. In the mediastinum (the central compartment of the thoracic cavity), radiation therapy may cause thymic cysts, calcified lymph nodes, and esophageal injuries.
Cardiovascular complications of radiation therapy are often delayed and insidious. Radiation therapy may also give rise to calcifications of the ascending aorta, pericardial disease, valvular injuries, and conduction abnormalities.
In the process of trying to destroy the cancerous cells in the body with radiation, the radiation also destroys good cells, further weakening the immune system and the body’s ability to heal. There is no safe use of radiation! All radiation is dangerous, whether it be in the use of x-rays, radiation in the treatment of cancer, or radiation release following a nuclear disaster.
In the early days of Hallelujah Acres, while based in Rogersville, Tennessee, there was a lady who frequented our restaurant who had been diagnosed with throat cancer. Radiation had been used in the treatment of that cancer, and as a result destroyed her salivary glands and she had to carry around a little cup of water everywhere she went.
My Own Sister Died from Radiation Therapy
I was off Synthroid for the month of June . . . Then I had the PET scan a week ago, went back on Synthroid, and am feeling better now. The negative scan was a complete shock to me and to the doctors also. It means that even though my lungs are full of thyroid cancer, it is slow growing. I’m very thankful. Will have another mega dose of radioactive iodine before the year is out, probably at Sloan-Kettering in NYC. The radiation has completely obliterated the 1 cm tumor I had under my collarbone, but what is in my lungs isn’t responding as well, for some reason.
On June 23, 2006 I received another letter from my sister Carolyn:
Nancy [Carolyn’s daughter] has thyroid cancer and now Tommy [Carolyn’s son] has thyroid cancer too, diagnosed a month ago. I think this is the first time in history that both a son and daughter plus mother have the same cancer. This is too bizarre!
On July 25, 2006 came this next letter:
I’m writing to tell you that I had brain surgery a week ago today at Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital, and I’m doing GREAT. Came home Friday and I feel fine, like nothing happened. It was a 2 cm papillary thyroid cancer metastasis. Everything happened very quickly, so that was really good. I’ll have the staples removed August 2nd, then more radiation? Then chemo to my lungs. Tommy’s surgery will be August 18, and Nancy’s October 6. HOPING no one else has it! Jimmy has a nodule, not biopsied yet, and Lisa is going for her sonogram this week. Then the grandchildren. It comes from being exposed to excessive radiation??? Total mystery here. Take good care of yourselves, and LOTS OF LOVE, Carolyn.
I get more and more beautiful every day! 5 head and neck surgeries thus far.
Doesn’t this bring new meaning to the word STAPLES!
What could cause both Carolyn’s son and daughter to come down with thyroid cancer? Carolyn received several radiation treatments that were so powerful she had to be placed in isolation for a period of time before she could have visitors.
Apparently after one of these radiation treatments she was allowed guests too soon and that is how both her son and daughter came in contact with the radiation. This may have been a reason that BOTH of these children ended up with thyroid cancer as well. If Carolyn received enough radiation to contribute to cancer in two of her children, what additional harm would it cause in Carolyn’s body?
On August 1, 2006 came the following email from Carolyn:
I’m doing GREAT! They said they never saw anyone go through brain surgery the way I did. Tomorrow will be the 7th anniversary of my diagnosis and first surgery. Jim is taking me to Sloan Kettering to have the staples removed. I saw what you meant about me looking like Mom did when she had her colon cancer. That picture was just an hour after I got home and I was on steroids to prevent brain swelling. That’s what gave me that look. Mom was on Prednisone, but she kept taking it. I’m finished with that as of yesterday. Love You! Carolyn.
This is the last letter I will share from Carolyn. It is dated August 10, 2006:
I spent the day at Sloan Kettering. I am going to have one single high dose of radiation to my brain, where the tumor was, on Thursday, the 17th. It’s going to be an all day ‘affair’, from 7 AM to about 6 PM, and it’s not going to be fun. (They will screw a brace into my skull in 4 places, and I’ll be wearing that all day, then a CT scan, then they will plot the course for the radiation, and I’ll have the treatment in the late afternoon.) YIKES! Tomorrow, I have to go for an MRI. Wish this were all over, but a week from tonight it will be. Thanks for listening. No answer necessary. Love, Carolyn.
Carolyn passed from this world on September 9, 2008 at the age of 68, after experiencing a living hell for the final 10 years of her life, and after spending hundreds of thousands of dollars doing everything the doctor said she needed to do to survive her cancer.
Sadly, when she was first diagnosed at age 57, I encouraged her to take some supplemental iodine, stop consuming animal source foods and refined sugar, and adopt The Hallelujah Diet, a diet that would rebuild her immune system with an abundance of freshly extracted vegetable juices.
Carolyn took my advice to her doctor, who told her that if she followed my advice and refused medical treatments she would die. Well she did die, but not as a result making a simply change in her diet and lifestyle. Instead, she died a slow and agonizing death as a result of radiation poisoning administered by the medical community.
She was my only sibling. I miss her and believe with all my heart that if she had refused to listen to what the doctors said about a plant based diet, refused all that initial radiation, and simply changed her diet, she would no doubt still be alive and well today. Even if she hadn’t obtained complete healing on a plant based diet, without radiation treatments, I believe she would have enjoyed greater quality of life during her last 10 years.
I lost my mother to cancer too! Mother was diagnosed with colon cancer at age 49. Being a registered nurse she had great faith in the medical modalities the doctor said were necessary to restore her health. Their first treatments for her cancer were cobalt treatments (radiation) which destroyed her immune system and then chemotherapy.
The cobalt treatments and chemotherapy destroyed her immune system. Every winter she would come down with pneumonia and end up in the hospital, deathly ill. Penicillin was the treatment of the day and she would describe her back end as a pin cushion. Mother’s death, as Carolyn’s, was a slow and painful death spread over many years.
This editor is the third person in our immediate family to come down with cancer — and the only one that refused medical treatments. Because of mother’s horrible experience going the medical route with her colon cancer, when I was told I had colon cancer in 1976 at the age of 42, I refused any medical treatments. Instead, at the advice of Evangelist Lester Roloff, I adopted the Genesis 1:29 diet and drank lots of vegetable juices.
Within days of making the diet change, my rectal bleeding stopped and within a year my baseball sized tumor had simply disappeared. God used my cancer recovery along with an abundance of Bible verses to birth a ministry called Hallelujah Acres, and God has blessed Hallelujah Acres and used its biblical teachings to help multitudes.
