My husband joined me on the diet soon after I started and has had relief from bursitis, leg cramps, aching feet and joints, and tendency to get pneumonia, all things he had previously attributed to aging but now knows where diet related. We are previously both in our late 40's and feel better than we have in many years. In fact, he jumped over a 6 foot stile the other day, landed on both feet, and felt no pain. Said he felt better than he did in his twenties!
So far, in just the first two weeks on the diet, I have lost 19 pounds and my energy has picked up tremendously. I have systemic lupus and am not having as many recurring episodes. My hair is starting to come back and I am amazed that in this short period of time how well my body is responding to this new diet and how much better I feel.
I began The Hallelujah Diet� on February 9, 2009, less than three months ago, weighing 209 pounds, after an awful bout with the flu.
I have been on the Hallelujah Diet for 9 months. My personal thanks to you, Dr. Malkmus, for hanging in there when everyone else was not too encouraging in years past.
The lupus, according to my last set of labs was undetectable, and the seizures are totally gone. My doctor's tapered me off all my meds in October 2003, and I have been doing great!
Now, he is drinking at least a quart a day. I get carrots from Canada at our local market. They are huge and loose in a 50 lb. bag. Anyway, he went to his doctor yesterday, who specializes in this particular problem and he was simply stunned by the big improvement in my husband's health, and he told him to keep doing what he is doing. My husband is now able to eat and continues to drink the carrot juice I make him. Isn't it interesting and sweet how God works?
But it is interesting; I don't always follow the diet 100%. On occasion I "cheat", sometimes just a little, which will bring on a few symptoms. Last September during a particularly stressful time, I cheated a lot. I went off of the diet for 4 days. I had a night of symptoms that brought back bad memories of what I was going through only a few months earlier, and it actually scared me. I felt at that point that God was showing me that if I wanted to stay well, I needed to stay on the diet.Lupus is a very nasty, scary disease, and if you, or someone you know has lupus, get them on this diet! It could save their life!
Thank you, Rev. Malkmus, for 'hitting the nail on the head.' The Standard American Diet is responsible for the people of this nation having the extreme desire for Universal Health Care! Sadly we have too few thinking/informed persons realizing the consequences of such action.
It's a pretty steep climb for about a mile and a half. I am 77 years old and most my age are either dead or incapable of climbing that mountain but I had no problem making it to the top.
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.
