After only three weeks on the Hallelujah Diet I was able to stop taking diabetic and uric acid medication and my blood pressure medication was cut in half. The doctor says that after I lose another ten pounds I probably won't have to take any medication.
Thanks again. Some of the ladies at work can see how good I am beginning to look and are asking me for the Hallelujah Diet web address, which I have given to them. God bless you both, and keep up the good work. We cannot get all the things that you have in America, but I have at last found a good juicer and blender.
By August 15, with the doctor's consent, he was taken off five of his six medications. By August 31,2002, he was taken off the final medication. Also, his time on the kidney dialysis has been decreased by 15 minutes. Ello tells me that he feels as well as he felt when he joined the military over 50 years ago. In less than 30 days, he was able to get off all his medication and return to state of wellness that he never imagined possible. He is telling anyone who will listen that "you don't have to be sick". I looking forward to bringing him to Health Minister Training in the Spring of 2003. Because of his testimony several people who take dialysis with him are now on the Hallelujah Diet. Now I know how it feels to say with confidence that you don't have to be sick. Hallelujah!
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!
Continue sharing with others so that they too can be healed. I have lost over 30 pounds. What an added treat for me. My only problem now is that I have no clothes to wear. I am now in a size 12. I think this is my natural body weight. My 90 days were up on November 15, 2002. I am going to continue to eat this way for the rest of my life. To God Be The Glory, Great Things He Has Done!
I am sorry that this has been such a long letter, but it is hard to be succinct when your life has been turned upside down and then right side up again. I think the hardest part, the part that still makes me cry, is remembering the times I sat by my daughter's bedside telling her that she would be OK. I will always remember the point where I became afraid that I was lying. I am so thankful, and I will always be thankful for the lifesaving knowledge that God has provided us with the miracle - we just have to follow His plan. Thanks to you and Rhonda for focusing your lives on sharing this message. We will always be grateful!
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.
It feels really great to be able to share the 'right' information about a healthy lifestyle with my family and friends. I cannot wait to become a Health Minister, so that I can help people change their unhealthy eating habits and help them overcome their diseases. I will soon be returning to my home in the Czech Republic and am eager to introduce The Hallelujah Diet and Lifestyle to my country. I feel this is my mission from God, and with His help, I hope to make a difference in many people's lives. The Holy Spirit has inspired me to dedicate my life to educating people in how to improve their health with a healthy lifestyle. I am very eager to commence my career in this mission.
By the way, on July 16, I went to my family doctor, who weighed me and took my blood pressure. My weight had dropped from 189 pounds on April 12 to 160, while my blood pressure had dropped from 140/90 to 108/70. Everyone at the doctor's office was amazed. Also, my hair is growing back in the bald spot on the back of my head and also where my hair was receding on the front of my head.
I have pastored a church full-time for most of the last 26 years and presently pastor a growing church with 150 active members. Needless to say, we have made a lifetime commitment to stay with the Hallelujah Lifestyle and to reach as many others as we can with this health message. Thank you for teaching us that 'Christians don't have to be sick'.
