Let me begin by saying that God did not design His human creation to ever experience sickness! To do so would be totally out of character for a loving God. So if God didn’t design man to be sick…
…why does man get sick?
In this article, I am going to reveal the amazing mechanism God placed into His human creation to prevent sickness from ever occurring. I will also reveal how God provided a means for man to restore wellness to his body without medical doctors, toxic drugs, or expensive therapies in the event that man ever did experience sickness, as from an accident.
To provide some foundation for these issues and this Health Tip, I am going to take us back to Genesis, the very first book of the Bible, to see what we can learn. I believe Scripture will shed some light on the subject.
God Created Everything in Total Perfection
In Genesis, we learn that after God had created the heavens and the earth, the sun, moon, and stars, all the green plants, animals, and finally his crowning creation – MAN – that He said this:
“And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold it was very good.” (Genesis 1:31)
In the second chapter of Genesis, God goes into quite a bit of detail as to how He created man, where man was to live, and even tells us what man was to eat in order to properly nourish his physical body:
“And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed. And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for FOOD . . . .” (Genesis 2:7-9)
Genesis 1:29 expands on what foods God designed these physical bodies we each possess to be nourished with:
“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.”
Man Lives Sickness-free on a Plant-based Diet
Raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds were the exclusive diet of mankind for the first 1,700 years of biblical history! During that time, there is not a single recorded instance of sickness and mankind enjoyed 912 years of life (the average age of patriarchs at death).
Then, we are told in Genesis 7, that a flood destroyed all the garden foods God had created as nourishment for the human physical body:
“And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills that were under the whole heaven were covered.” (Genesis 7:19)
“And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.” (Genesis 7:24)
Diets Change and Sickness Begins to Manifest
I believe that, for survival purposes until the flood waters receded and garden foods were once again available, God allowed man to consume the flesh of the clean animals that were on the ark.
“Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.” (Genesis 9:3)
However, rather than consuming the nourishing plant foods God told man in Genesis 1:29 he was to eat for food, man continued eating ever more animal source foods. Man also began cooking his foods. With this change in diet, sickness began to manifest.
Your Body Is Comprised of Living Cells
Your body is comprised of approximately 100 trillion living cells. Everything in our body is made up these cells, including
- Immune system
Every minute of every day approximately 300 million of these living cells die and are replaced. Within a 12-month period, nearly every cell in our body has been replaced with a new cell — but not necessarily a stronger cell.
As these old cells die and are replaced with new cells, the quality of the nutrients we provide the body each day (our diet) determines the quality of the new cells that are replacing the old cells.
Only Living (Uncooked) Food Can Nourish Living Cells
The Standard American Diet (SAD) is comprised of nearly 100% dead food – cooked meat, cooked milk (pasteurization cooks the milk), cooked vegetables, cooked potatoes, cooked breads, cooked pastas, cooked desserts, cooked almost everything people eat in today’s society. Cooking destroys the enzymes, the life force within the food.
Animals in the wild instinctively, whether vegan or carnivorous, consume their food in its raw (enzymatically alive) form as served up by nature. That’s because cooked food does not contain the enzymatically alive nutrients the body requires in order to build new, strong, healthy, vibrant, living cells.
Their raw diet is why animals in the wild rarely get sick. But when we domesticate that wild animal – be it dog or cat, wolf or tiger – and feed them the boxed, canned, cooked, and processed foods, we watch them develop similar diseases that plague we humans who cook our food.
These domesticated animals even develop cancer, while cancer is almost unheard of among wild animals.
Cooked food does not provide the body’s living cells with good building materials, so when an old cell dies and is replaced with a new cell, the result is a new cell that is weaker than the cell it is replacing. Over time, this results in a slow degeneration and deterioration of the entire body structure, including the immune system.
Immune System – Designed By God to Keep Us Healthy
Very few systems in nature are as complex as the human immune system. It is God’s gift to His human creation, a gift that keeps us healthy and free of disease when it functions as God designed. This gift was placed in the bodies of Adam and Eve at creation, and ultimately passed on from generation to generation into each of our bodies today.
White blood cells are the soldiers of the immune system. Their function is to destroy foreign invaders or diseased cells. When the body is fighting disease, there is a rise in the white blood cell count. The more intense the battle, the more white blood cells the body produces and sends into the battle.
Often times, doctors will alarm people on The Hallelujah Diet when they find a low white blood cell count. What they don’t realize is that a white blood cell count is an excellent indication that their body is well.
A high white blood cell count is a sign that the body is doing battle with foreign invaders, while a low white blood count is an indication that all is well on the body’s wellness battlefield.
Sugar Weakens the Immune System
Now you can understand why the key to wellness is a strong and healthy immune system. Happily, a strong immune system is something that most of us have almost total control over. This control is found in our diet! And what do we need to control? Sugar!
Sugar is a powerful immune system suppressant! In other words, sugar knocks out the protective power of the immune system, effectively stripping the immune system of its soldiers and weapons.
In a previous Health Tip, I went into some detail as to how sugar prevents the immune system from functioning as designed. However, because this is such an important topic, I am going to repeat a few items from that Health Tip. These points were written by doctors regarding the effect of sugar on the immune system:
In her book, Preventive Medicine, Agatha M. Thrash, M.D. shares that
- 6 teaspoons of sugar, the amount in just one glazed donut, decreases the immune system’s ability to destroy bacteria by 25%
- 12 teaspoons of sugar, the approximate amount in one 12-ounce soft drink, decreases it ability to destroy bacteria by 60%
- 24 teaspoons of sugar decreases its ability to destroy bacteria by 92%
And we wonder why our children as well as mom and dad get sick.
Dr. Joseph Mercola, former Chairman of family medicine at St. Alexius Medical Center, and best-selling health author, urges that we avoid sugar and processed foods:
“Sugar impairs the quality of your immune response almost immediately, and as you likely know, a healthy immune system is one of the most important keys to fighting off viruses and other illness. It also can decimate your beneficial bacteria and feed the pathogenic yeast and viruses.”
Chemotherapy & Vaccinations Decimate the Immune System
It is a miracle that anyone survives chemotherapy. The only way cancer can develop in the first place is because the immune system is too weak to detect and eradicate the cancer cells before they develop. Once cancer cells escape detection by the immune system, the immune system needs to be rebuilt with good nutrition, not further harmed with chemical poisons.
While vaccinations may provide some immunity unnaturally, they do great harm to the natural immunity God built into his human creation.
In the March 2013 Issue of The Blaylock Report, Russell Blaylock, M.D., reports:
“Few people recognize that natural infections, especially early in life, can actually be beneficial as they serve to build a very strong and resilient immune system for later life. In the days before vaccination, people’s immune systems were allowed to become strong in just such a way. This means that, as they aged, people in previous generations were significantly stronger and less likely to die of disease than today.”
Vaccinations don’t simply prevent the immune system from growing strong. They can contain some very toxic substances. These substances are toxic to the body and cause an immune response as the body tries to neutralize or eliminate them. These efforts by the immune system will often produce
- Flu-like symptoms
- Swelling at point of entry (injection site)
These vaccinations can even cause death if the immune system is overwhelmed.
The Best Way to Strengthen the Immune System
If we want to strengthen the immune system, the first thing we must do is stop putting unhealthy substances into our bodies that weaken its immune system, and then we must take steps to rebuild and strengthen it.
That does make sense doesn’t it? So…
… what is the best way to strengthen the immune system?
The Hallelujah Diet & Lifestyle is the very best and most powerful rebuilder of the immune system I am aware of. It is a diet comprised of 100% plant based foods, based on God’s Original Diet as given to Adam in Genesis 1:29..
Here at Hallelujah Acres, we have learned that we can increase the nutrients reaching the cellular level of the body by juicing raw vegetables before consuming.
Juicing concentrates the nutrients coming from Garden of Eden vegetables by placing all the nutrients in the juice. This method of entry allows for considerably greater absorption. By juicing raw vegetables, we are able to increase the percentage of nutrients reaching cellular level from less than 35% when we eat the whole food, to 92% when we juice.
In addition to juicing, we add BarleyMax, which along with the vegetable juices, provides the body with the most powerful immune system building nutrients I am aware of.
As I approach age 80, I have personally now been on this 100% plant-based diet, including lots of raw, freshly extracted vegetable juices, for the past 37 years. During that time, I have not experienced a cold, the flu, or an infection.
How could any almost 80-year-old individual have such a long history of being free from colds, the flu, and infections? The answer is an easy one…
I enjoy wellness, and thus I take those steps every day to make sure that I keep my immune system strong and healthy!
Each day, I provide my immune system with the nutrients it needs to remain strong and healthy, while at the same time refusing to place into my body those substances that would weaken or cause harm to my immune system.
Are you taking the steps necessary each day to keep your immune system strong and healthy so that you, too, can enjoy the wellness you desire and the good health God planned for your body? Please remember these words of Thomas Edison. Though they were spoken over 100 years ago, they are as up-to-date as tomorrow’s newspaper:
“THE DOCTOR OF THE FUTURE will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
Next week, the good Lord willing and if the creeks don’t rise too high, we will continue to share how you can personally become your own doctor – yes, the doctor of the future. Trust you will join us and that you will share these Health Tips with friends and loved ones.
