Vote for Health

Paul and I just returned from early voting. We take serious our responsibility and duty to help ensure this great Nation is being lead at the highest level by people who are most likely to protect the Constitution and our rights as citizens. Not only will our elected leaders have to make monumental decisions that impact our security but they also will influence how free we are to make decisions impacting our health and the health of our families.

Most people aren’t aware … The natural food industry is under constant attack. There have been many attempts to limit and restrict nutritional supplement sale and use over the years. The pharmaceutical industry is a giant business making billions of dollars annually. They have high-paid lobbyists in Washington to put pressure on our elected officials to make laws that benefit the pharmaceutical industry financially. Of course these laws are disguised as protecting the public from supplements that might do harm. Dick Chaney was on the board directors of a pharmaceutical company before becoming the vice president. Do you think he was pro prescription drug or natural supplements? The pharmaceutical industry had a strong ally at the highest level of government. Who knows how many other congressmen/senators and even higher who have interests in the pharmaceutical industry?

Disease is big industry all the way around. The pharmaceutical industry isn’t the only group who works to protect their turf. The American Medical Association (AMA) is another extremely powerful group that stops at nothing and why shouldn’t they – they don’t want competition.    

The mission of the Hallelujah Diet is to help people improve their health. While we as a country have experienced the beginnings of a health revolution, there is still much work to be done. The United States is still among the sickest of countries in the world, all while spending more per capita on so-called health care.

Now that we are seeing premiums increasing for health insurance by 25% while deductibles become even more outrageous. What is a person/family to do?

  1. Follow the Money – Who are the organizations that are contributing to the candidate’s campaign? Large companies donate to campaigns to gain favor. This happens at every level of government. Some savvy business people will contribute to both the republican and democratic candidate basically hedging their bet. This provides the company access regardless of who wins the election.
  2. Choice/No-Choice – Look closely at the candidates voting records when it comes to an individual’s rights. With all the rhetoric spewed by politicians during campaigns the only way to see how they really think is by looking at how they have voted in the past. Have they voted in ways that have limited your rights in the name of public safety? Take the vaccination debate – people who are pro-vaccine say every child needs to be vaccinated to protect the health of even those children who are vaccinated. So, they take the parents’ right away to make the decision for their child. There are many other examples of big government taking away people’s rights.
  3. Quality and Safety of Food – While it may be a bit premature to determine which of the candidates will work to protect your food, it is still something that you must consider while determining your choice.  Since you may not be in the position to grow your own food, then you must rely on the government to protect you from inferior farming practices, overuse of pesticides and other chemicals and introducing genetically modified seeds that are banned in many other countries.

Although there are numerous important topics that people will be voting on, such as who will bring in new supreme court justices, immigration, security, jobs, economics, and so on, we urge you to also consider the important topic of your health.  We ask you to consider which candidate will have the greatest positive effect on the purity of the air you breathe, the water you drink and the food you eat. The daily activities that you perform are truly a life or death type of situation that, although aren’t deemed important enough to be discussed during a national debate, are vital to the very existence of your maintaining your health and your life.

As you perform your research and pray over your decision, remember that:

First, God is in control and no matter what happens, He will have the final say.

Second, no matter who becomes president, the United States doesn’t have a true “Health Care Program.” We have a “Disease Management System.”  Therefore, despite living in a country where there is a history of “Firsts” and “pioneers” in the medical field, the reality is that until this country begins to see the root causes of disease and develops programs to prevent disease, as well as cleans up the way the fresh vegetables, fruits, seeds and nuts are grown, then, the battle of disease will only escalate and it will ultimately become a society of survival of the fittest.

Finally, our churches and our government need to begin to see our country in the same way.  To be able to feed, house and educate even the poorest people in our country, the churches will need to begin to lend a hand.  If our churches would begin to see their backyards as mission fields and not third world countries, and if our churches spent more money on their own parishioners than on the buildings, musical instruments and the desire to grow, and, if the government worked with the churches instead of alienated them, then, and only then, can we continue to do what the Lord has always wanted us to do—take care of the widows, the orphans and those who desperately need care. We don’t need a tax or other government mandates to accomplish this—we just need to work together.

Many people have believed that their vote wouldn’t make a difference so they didn’t get involved and let others make decisions that impacted their lives. If we don’t use the power given to us through the Constitution, then we are allowing others to make decisions for us…talk about being victims. People who don’t vote have no right to complain. While this has been a particularly difficult time for our country, it’s exciting to see so many people who usually don’t vote actually get involved. But, for the sake of your health and your family’s health, please take the time to educate yourself, pray, and then vote.


  1. Amen! And think also about who is going to protect our unborn babies! Thanks for encouraging all of us!!!

    Stick to health issues and stay out of politics. I trust and receive your thoughts and experiences in health matters but please, with all do respect, I don’t give you that same position when it comes to politics.

    • “With all due respect” doesn’t make your response any more polite. They have a right to express their opinion on whatever topic they choose to discuss on their blog! I thought they did a very good job of relating politics to health and nutrition. I appreciate their informed view and non-partisan encouragement to VOTE! Spread some encouragement! Have a happy day!

    • Linda Nitzschke October 29, 2016

      Please Cathy, there have already been too many attempts at trying to silence conservative views. I support management of Hallelujah Acres to express opinions in all areas of life. Anyone who doesn’t, doesn’t need to read said opinions/views. That’s not asking too much, is it?

    • Paula P. October 31, 2016

      I agree with Cathy Stewart on that one. We may end up disagreeing on our choices. I can see how an individual or business can turn around how candidates stand on any issue so that they feel their chosen candidate is the right choice. There are pros and cons on both sides of the health issues. Please don’t get partisan. Stay in the business of providing healthy eating for ALL of us, no matter what our party affiliation.

  3. Great advice!

    Your message is very similar to what I have been speaking and writing about for years !!! Eat God Based Foods, pray right and strong, educate yourself then educate others from the community about God, Nutrition and also learning/teaching about the negative activities of big business and the biggest business ( in the red) our government . . based upon greed, corruption and godlessness. . . Just last week, through what I believe was God inspired, I mailed a letter to Trump with the bottom line faith that the letter would find its way to him. It took me close to a month to finish . . In short, it was about the realities of nutrition that is and has been the cheapest and yet the most beneficial//effective medical interventions available that really work. I have been studying nutrition and alternative health since the 70’s. The medical costs are the most expensive expenditure that the government faces. I mentioned some facts concerning Alzheimer’s Dis. is now claiming 14000 Americans daily with this years expenses close to $120,000.00/ with no real cure in sight. Diet, water and prayer are the real medicine. I continued with that if he was to be the next president and was going to be a real president, he needs to draw near God and learn to bend a knee and pray. I suggested that he lead this nation in daily prayer every day !!! Only Through, only With and only By God Will, God’s Plan and God’s Timing are we as a nation going to bounce back as a God fearing nation. Period . . Thank you for what you folks are doing at Halleluyah. . You are part of the solution . . . God Blessings one and all. . When I get some money together I will be back to buy some of your products.

    • I recommend ivoterguide for an accurate record of each candidate and their platform.

    • Look at the platforms of the two major parties, available on their websites. See what they stand for. Then vote your conscience.
