With the introduction of a New Year, many people determine in their hearts to make New Year’s resolutions. People making such resolutions usually feel that the New Year is a good time to start improving some area in their life.
Let me encourage you, whether you already had determined to make New Year’s Resolutions or not, to make plans to get healthy in 2014.
The Bible puts it this way:
“Remember NOW thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them.”
~ Ecclesiastes 12:1
You may have physical problems that you have suffered with for years. You have possibly been to the doctor for some of these problems, and even taken drugs for them – and yet these physical problems have not gone away – they still persist, or perhaps have gotten worse.
Perhaps you suffer from high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or high triglycerides.
Maybe it’s a cardiovascular problem, arthritis, diabetes, allergies, asthma, or constipation.
Maybe you are carrying excess weight, or have been experiencing fatigue, mental fog, poor eye sight, pimples, dandruff, or a host of other problems.
Do you realize that every one of these listed problems — and most of the other problems people suffer with — are simply diet and lifestyle related?
In fact, all of these ailments can usually very simply and quite quickly be eliminated through a simple diet and lifestyle change!
Here at Hallelujah Acres, we have received tens-of-thousands of testimonies during the past 20-plus years since our beginning in 1992, reporting over 170 different physical and even psychological problems simply disappearing after the person adopted the Hallelujah Diet.
And please remember that in order to accomplish these tremendous improvements in their health, all they did was make a simple change in their diet and lifestyle.
No doctors or drugs were involved in the restoration of their health!
One gentleman, after only six months on the Hallelujah Diet reported a 60-pound weight loss and the disappearance of 28 different physical problems.
And one woman was able to go off 35 different prescription medications in less than six months after the diet change.
You can read literally thousands of testimonies of physical and even psychological problems disappearing here.
What Happened When I Made The Diet Change
In 1976, at the age of 42, I personally made this diet and lifestyle change at the advice of a preacher friend. The diet change was made just after being told I had colon cancer. Following that diet change, not only did my cancer go away, but so did every other physical problem I was experiencing at the time.
Well here I am today, just weeks away from my 80th birthday, and what is the condition of my health after changing my diet almost 40 years ago?
- I still have a full head of hair
- My eyes no longer require glasses to see clearly
- I have a lean muscular body with a 32” waist at 142 pounds, and
- I have so much energy I don’t know what to do with it all!
I had complete blood work done earlier this year (over 60 blood profiles) with every profile but two in the normal range and those two were within a few points of normal. My PSA was 0.79 (0-4 is considered normal).
As I approach my 80th birthday, I am experiencing excellent health, haven’t got an ache or pain in my body, with probably more energy, stamina, and endurance than I had as a 20-year-old, and I can still, lecture for over 3 hours straight, standing up, without any notes!
How can this be?
Is it because God chose to shine down on me good health, or could there be another reason?
Too many Christians look to God, or the medical doctor, or their drugs or vitamin supplements for their health and well being, when they need to be looking somewhere else.
Health is not found in the doctor’s office, the drug or vitamin bottle, or even in asking God to fix what we have been responsible for breaking.
Sadly, I look at people, some less than half my age, and they are already sick and tired, dragging through life, visiting the doctor often and taking numerous drugs, and they can’t understand why God doesn’t answer their prayers for healing.
My friend, it is not God’s fault you are suffering with these various physical problems!
Most Christians today are looking to someone or something outside themselves – God, doctors, drugs, vitamins, etc., as the means of restoring their health.
But if we are going to get rid of these physical problems (some just pesky while others are very serious), we must stop looking outside ourselves, and start looking inward.
Almost every physical or psychological problem we suffer with is the result of something we did or didn’t do that caused the problem!
Sickness Is A Matter Of Choice
Almost every physical problem being experienced today is caused by what people place into their mouth along with their failure to exercise their bodies!
If we want to be well, we must each realize that our health depends on us — not on God, the doctor, or the drugs — and that the daily diet and lifestyle choices we make are what determines whether we live in sickness or in health.
The Bible puts it this way in Galatians 6:7:
“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man (or woman) soweth, that shall he (or she) also reap.”
The physical and psychological problems we experience are almost always the result of a violation of God’s irreversible law of sowing and reaping!
Let me list just a few of the things we are taking into our body that result in our body developing these problems:
Refined Sugar Disables Your Immune System
How sad it is that people do not realize that every time they consume a food containing refined sugar (cookie, cake, pie, ice cream, or any other so-called food containing refined sugar, or gum, candy, etc.) they are weakening their immune system a little further.
Each serving of sugar causes the immune system to malfunction a little more, resulting in it being less and less able to protect a person from germs, viruses, pathogenic (bad) bacteria, cancer, etc.
Just one soft drink contains approximately 11 teaspoons of refined sugar, enough sugar to turn off your immune system for about 8 hours.
And 33 teaspoons of sugar, the amount found in just 3 cans of soda pop, knocks out the immune system for about 24 hours.
But sugar is not found exclusively in soda pop…
The average person on the Standard American Die consumes some 50 teaspoons of refined sugar every day and thus their immune is unable to protect them!
Don’t eat a lot of sugar? Don’t be deceived…
White flour products convert quickly to sugar and are devoid of both nutrition and fiber!
When we consume a product comprised of white flour, not only are we not receiving anything of nutritional value to nourish the beautifully physical body God provided each of us, but also we are placing into our body a fiberless substance that causes constipation, and further knocks out our immune system.
Most Christians are consuming a very high refined sugar diet, along with an almost entirely fiberless diet, as there is no fiber to be found in white flour, sugar, or table salt, the foods most people consume daily. Nor is there any fiber to be found in anything that comes from an animal – flesh or dairy (milk, cheese, yogurt, etc.)
The Danger of Animal Source Foods
Most people do not realize that the animal source foods they consume daily – both of flesh and dairy origin, are the primary cause of most of the serious physical problems they experience – heart attacks, strokes, most cancers, colon and digestive problems, arthritis, diabetes, osteoporosis, heartburn, acid stomach, allergies, asthma, and more.
There is nothing more dangerous a person can consume than animal source foods.
It was for this reason and with this knowledge, that almost 40 years ago I stopped consuming anything that came from an animal; I have been a pure, mostly raw vegan for almost four decades.
The Delicious Difference
Believe it or not, there are just as many tasty foods that protect your health as there are unhealthy ones.
The problem is that our society has programmed us to eat the unhealthy foods — the foods that cause our body to malfunction and produce all manner of disease and physical and mental breakdown!
It is similar to what contaminated or low octane fuel will do to an automobile – cause it to malfunction.
God clearly told us the foods (fuel) He designed our bodies to be nourished with in Genesis 1:29, immediately after creating that first man and woman, and placing them in a garden called Eden. Here is what God said concerning what we should eat, and be sure to notice who is speaking:
“AND GOD SAID, Behold, I have given you every herb (vegetable) bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for FOOD.”
~ Genesis 1:29
If you are fortunate enough to have reached your current age, without suffering physical problems and physical break down, may I encourage you to:
“Remember NOW thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them:”
~ Ecclesiastes 12:1
But if you have already been visited by various physical ailments or psychological problems, and want to get off that road of sickness and suffering, I am thrilled to be able to share with you another way, a better way, than the way you have been previously following.
God tells us about that new and better way in Psalm 103:1-5:
“Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; who satisfieth thy mouth with good things so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”
In 1976, at age 42, I chose to allow God to satisfy my mouth with “good things!” Yes, I chose to satisfy my mouth with the very foods God told us we should eat in Genesis 1:29, along with lots of freshly extracted juices from the raw vegetables.
Within a year, my cancer was gone, and here I am almost 40 years later, at age 80, still experiencing my “youth”!
When I made that diet change in 1976, my “youth was renewed like the eagle’s”, and on that same diet and lifestyle I’m still experiencing a youthful body and mind. On this diet I have seen people in their 80s and 90s come out of bed and wheelchairs, regaining some of their youthfulness.
You can, too!
Let 2014 to be the year you affirm: “It’s time to get healthy!” so that you too can experience your “youth being renewed like the eagle’s.” It is my prayer that you will do so!
