It’s Time To Take Control Of Your Health

Since equipping my body to heal itself of colon cancer in 1976 — by taking control of my own health without doctors or drugs — I have attempted to encourage others to take control of their own health as well.

I have attempted to do this through seminars (hundreds of them), printed page (wrote 5 books), electronic Health Tips (written over 700), radio, television, and personal contact.


Because, no one can truly enjoy life if they are constantly in pain, going to doctors, taking drugs, and experiencing sickness. And of course no one enjoys paying the bills resulting from the treating of all these physical problems.

Nor can we properly serve the Lord or fulfill the ministry to which God has called us without a healthy body.

Dear friend, if we are going to enjoy life and have a body fit for the Master’s use, we must have a healthy body!

Do you have any idea who determines whether our bodies are healthy or not? HINT – The answer is not your doctor, or even God!

Who Controls Our Health?

In most instances the only one who determines whether we have a healthy body or not is the person to whom God gave that body. We have control over it and we must also take responsibility for maintaining it in good health.

It’s all up to you and me!

Like a prized possession, God has entrusted each of us with a body and holds us responsible for its care — that is, proper nourishment and maintenance.

Consider carefully what the Bible has to say about who bears responsibility for our body’s nourishment, care, and maintenance:

“I beseech YOU therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present YOUR bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is YOUR reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.”
(Romans 12:1-2)

Again in Galations, the Bible says we are responsible regarding whether we have a healthy body or not:

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man (or women) soweth, that shall he (or she) also reap.”
(Galatians 6:7)

Now, while the vast majority of people around us are in an unhealthy state, constantly going to doctors, treating physical problems, taking drugs, and paying lots of money to cover the costs of the treatment of these illnesses…

There are growing numbers of people who have taken control of their health, rid themselves of all their physical and psychological problems (and associated high costs), and they don’t get sick anymore.

How does one go about taking control of their health and eliminating all their physical and psychological problems, along with their accompanying costs?

Have you any idea how to answer that question?

There is an answer and it is the answer to that question we will be dealing with for the rest of this article.

How To Take Control of Your Health

The only way a person can recover from their constantly reoccurring physical problems and eliminate those recurring health care costs is to take control of their own health.

The only way to accomplish that is by changing their diet and lifestyle. And let me add that God is not going to do it for a person what they can do for themselves!

In order to take control of our health we need to change the way we think about how we nourish this beautiful physical body temple God has provided each of us.

Why do you eat and drink what you do?

Have you ever considered that what you are eating and drinking might have something to do with the physical problems you experience?

Consider what God has to say about how we should not take care of these physical bodies we each possess:

And be not conformed to this world:  . . . .”
(Romans 12:2)

And for confirmation that this scripture is talking about our physical bodies, read Romans 12:1 where it says we should:

“present our bodies a living sacrifice . . . .”

What Others Are Experiencing

I am thrilled to report that over the past 20 years, tens of thousands have taken charge of their own health by adopting The Hallelujah Diet. As a result, these people have recovered from over 170 different physical problems, including even terminal, Stage 4, metastasized cancers, and they don’t get sick anymore.

Why do people who adopt The Hallelujah Diet experience such spectacular results?

The answer is really quite simple: When God designed these physical bodies we each possess; He designed them to be nourished with a certain type of fuel. The fuel God designed our bodies to run on can only be found in the garden.

When we fuel our bodies with the garden foods God designed our physical bodies to be nourished with, our bodies run the way God designed them to run – IN HEALTH!

But when we place into our bodies the wrong fuels, our bodies run poorly, we get sick, and our bodies begin to fail us.

We each, as individuals, are the ones who determine whether our body will be healthy or not by what we choose to place into them in the form of food or drink each and every day of our lives.

In other words, we – not God or our doctor – determines whether we live in health or sickness.

As shared earlier, God said: “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man (or women) soweth, that shall he (or she) also reap.” (Galatians 6:7)

This works both ways – sow health and you will reap health – sow disease and you will reap disease. Our health is simply the outworking of God’s law of sowing and reaping.

Thirty-six years ago I learned the simple but profound truth that my health or lack thereof was a result of what I sowed.

After learning this truth in 1976, I changed my diet and lifestyle at age 42, recovered from colon cancer, and rid my body of all other physical problems. All without doctors or medical modalities.

As I write this, I am only two years from my 80th birthday, having enjoyed excellent health ever since making that diet and lifestyle change in 1976 at the age of 42.

Cause Of Physical Breakdown

When we get sick, that physical breakdown is in most instances merely the body responding or reacting to the wrong fuel (what we eat and drink), and/or living the wrong lifestyle.

Almost every physical problems (other than accidents) whether obesity or being underweight, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, arthritis,  heart attacks, strokes, cancer, colds, the flu, acid stomach, headache, psychological problems, pimples, etc., are merely the body reacting to the wrong fuel.

As we stop putting in the wrong fuel and begin putting in the right fuel and begin exercising, the body will almost always begin the process of healing.

You see, God placed self-healing into each of our bodies and proper diet and lifestyle activates that self-healing so that the body can do what God designed it to do – which is heal itself.

Twenty years ago, a gentleman wrote me a letter stating that within six months of adopting The Hallelujah Diet and Lifestyle, he lost 60 pounds and saw 28 different physical problems disappear from his body. In fact, this same gentleman came to one of my seminars this year and said he hasn’t been sick since making that diet and lifestyle change 20 years ago.

That story is not uncommon. Here at Hallelujah Acres, personal experience and the testimonies of tens-of-thousands have revealed that within six months or less of making a diet and lifestyle change, most people can halt or reverse at least 90% of all their physical and psychological problems — and they don’t get sick anymore.

What Is The Hallelujah Diet?

Typically, a diet is something a person does for a period of time to obtain a desired result. After they obtain that desired result (or get tired of doing the diet), they return to their old ways of eating. A person on a diet like this may experience improvements, but when they return to their old habits, the problems usually return.

On the other hand, a LIFESTYLE change is something a person does for the rest of their life. This is really what The Hallelujah Diet is all about!

The Hallelujah Diet is the culmination of nearly 40 years of personal experiences, scientific research, and evaluating the personal testimonies of tens of thousands of others sharing what worked and what did not work for them.

During this time I have studied almost every alternative health modality available. I spent two years studying Natural Hygiene at the Shangra-La Resort in Florida; studied under Dr. Ann Wigmore in Boston; sat at the feet of Dr. Cary Rheams; studied the writings of Dr. Norman Walker, Paul Bragg, Dr. Max Gerson, Dr. John McDougall, Dr. Dean Ornish, Dr. Neil Bernard, Dr. Joel Fuhrman, Dr. Russell Blaylock, Dr. T. Colin Campbell, and a host of others.

Through the years I have had but one guiding light that kept me on the straight and narrow and against which I weighed every modality — the diet God gave to Adam and all mankind:

“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 meat (FOOD).”
(Genesis 1:29)

God told Adam (and through Adam, the whole human race) how the physical body should be nourished. The formula was simple: the nutrients found in living plants – fruits, vegetables, seeds, and nuts.

This original diet, given by God to mankind, contained no animal flesh or dairy, no refined sugars or grains, no hydrogenated oils, no refined foods, no cooked foods, no chemical additives, and no artificial anything.

It is the foundation upon which I compared everything I was learning. If it fit and agreed with what God told us we should consume as fuel in Genesis 1:29, I pursued it further – but if it didn’t – I cast it aside as not worthy of consideration.

Next week, the good Lord willing and if the creeks don’t rise too high, we will explain more about The Hallelujah Diet and how best to introduce it into your body so that you can take control of your own health, eliminate present physical and psychological problems, and have a body fit for the Master’s use. Trust you will join us!

    Pastor Malkmus – how can I have my mind renewed and transformed.? I pray so many times asking GOD to have my mind transformed but my thoughts keep on going back to negative,worrisome,doubtful,fearful thoughts. I read the Bible daily but my thoughts are tormenting me and as a result – I am sick all the time. I am just tired of being sick with so many health issues going on. I am following HA diet but my sickness is worrying me. Please Help.

      Have hope! There is a simple answer: Never Fall Below Praise. Praise Jesus for everything you can think of , including for His help and deliverance from negative thoughts. You will train your brain to think praise and gratitude instead. As you pray, Jesus’ presence comes to you (The Lord inhabits the praises of His people Psalm 22:3), and He will deliver you. Read 2 Chronicles 20 about how God delivered His ancient people by praise, and you too will be delivered. I was, and so were several others I know. I learned this from two veteran Christian ladies who recovered from deep depression. Don’t get discouraged if you forget or fall back into negatives; just as soon as you catch yourself in a negative thought, immediately start to praise Jesus, and you will be blessed abundantly. Remember that He is always right there to help you; enter His presence with praise again. Also, pray and ask Jesus to show you what the root is of your fears and doubts. When He shows it to you, surrender it to Him, and ask Him to forgive any sins that may be related to it. Then ask Him to replace the root with His character and thoughts. This will be so powerful to your healing, as I too have found power in deep spiritual cleansing and praise. Dear Father in Heaven, Please bless Chandrika with Your loving grace to praise and thank You, and please give her a new heart and new thoughts as You promised in Your Word. Thank You in advance for your delivering her. In Jesus’ wonderful name, Amen. I will continue to pray for you!

    Hi Rev.Malkmus: I have been following your diet for 4months now with more energy than I had before. I have colon cancer, the Doctors want to remove 1ft of my lower colon and the limp nods. I have also been drinking essiac tea for about 10months. I am still seeing signs of deterioration of my colon in the stool. Would you have any other suggestions for me?
