Keep up the great work at Hallelujah Diet! You will never be able to convince all the people that diet is essential to good health just as Christ was/is not able to convince all the people that salvation is essential for a Heavenly Reward. My wife and I have witnessed great similarities between informing Christians about diet and non-Christians about spiritual salvation.
After I started juicing it took about two weeks for my stomach to straighten out. My friend told me that here in Colorado Springs, at the Olympic facility; they use the juicing regime for the athletes. I juice twice a day as I take care of Jerry, who had knee surgery and got staph infection big-time after the surgery. They had to operate three more times to get rid of the infection. He was in the hospital for nine days, but something went wrong.
My ovarian cancer has gone away; no longer experience hay fever; fungus growth is gone from my toes; sores on the inside of my nose that were there for years are now gone; when first making the diet change I experienced rapid healing of my gums; no longer am I susceptible to viruses and bacterial infections and I no longer experience colds; no longer have any constipation problems; no longer require a lot of sleep and my eyesight is still improving; and my energy is tremendous.
I also got rid of constant gas, leg jitters at night, heart palpitations, three headaches a week and thirty extra pounds. I am also growing closer to the Lord!
When I started eating Hallelujah style several years ago, all my health problems started to go away. I still have some bleeding to remove excess iron, but you would never know by looking at me. I am 46, feel great everyday, quite active for someone with a genetic disease. My chronic pain has subsided, blood results are normal, blood sugar is normal, and liver function is normal. It is my heart's desire for all my Christian family to return to the Garden where God's original diet was given and was sufficient. Then they too will be energetic and free of disease so that they can serve the Lord with radiance and vitality. Thank you for Hallelujah Diet.
My body now has muscle instead of fat tissue; my organs have regenerated, instead of degenerated; my skin and eyes are clear; I now have a healthy bottom (imagine riding in a saddle all day without a healthy one!), and my whole outlook on life, and daily coping ability and energy levels are so much better. It was a lady who first gave me a copy of your books. I read them both non-stop and made the decision to change my life. I have since delivered a series of workshops showing people how to prepare and serve living food. These classes have been very popular. Cheers, and God Bless!
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.
His kidney function is over 90%, and we just received word last week, following an EEG, that he shows no signs of seizures! Nor has there been even one bout of pneumonia! His eyesight has improved each time he has been back to the optometrist! And he tells me almost daily that he only wants me to give him healthy food.
Also, since our lifestyle change, I have lost over 50 pounds! I lost 13 pounds the first month and 17 pounds the second. Since giving birth to my daughter 12 years ago, I have had irregular menstrual cycles. At one point I went 4- years without one. But after just three days of eating raw, I have been like clockwork -- that is until August 2003 - I am due to give birth in one month. our Hallelujah baby is on her way!
I knew from his answers that I really didn't need the radiation, so I began to juice and cleanse my body. What I did is almost identical to the Hallelujah Diet. I wouldn't trade what I have done for anything in the world.
Since then, I have been slowly working out of the Construction business, and Dorothy and I have recently jumped into the Health Ministry full time. Besides teaching our group and writing a weekly newsletter, we have a stand at a large Farmer's Market, and do Festival and Craft Shows, where we share with many people that God does not want them to be sick. Our vision is to one-day see Northeastern Pennsylvania become one of the healthiest places in America, next to your North Carolina, of course!
