I found the following about stem cells in the pages of National Geographic:
In the beginning, one cell becomes two, and two become four. Being fruitful, they multiply into a ball of many cells, a shimmering sphere of human potential. Scientists have long dreamed of plucking those naive cells from a young human embryo and coaxing them to perform, in sterile isolation, the everyday miracle they perform in wombs: transforming into all the 200 or so kinds of cells that constitute a human body. Liver cells. Brain cells. Skin, bone, and nerve.
The dream is to launch a medical revolution in which ailing organs and tissues might be repaired—not with crude mechanical devices like insulin pumps and titanium joints but with living, homegrown replacements. It would be the dawn of a new era of regenerative medicine, one of the holy grails of modern biology…
In a University of Pittsburg School of Medicine study, scientists found that mice injected with stem cells appeared to have “sipped from the fountain of youth.” The mice used in the experiment were bred to exhibit signs of a premature aging disorder that caused them to age rapidly.
When they were injected with stem cells from young mice, instead of dying prematurely as the untreated mice did – mice that received the stem cells showed improved health and saw “a threefold increase in their life span.”
Similar studies have made stem cell therapy the leading anti-aging breakthrough of the past two decades. To obtain these anti-aging effects people have been paying as much as $20,000 for a stem cell treatment.
More Good News
Scientists have discovered that adult stem cells – stem cells that are already in a senior adult’s body – have the ability to become virtually every type of cell in the body.
That means that the adult stem cells that are already in the body of the senior citizen can become any of the some 220 different types of cells in the body – such as heart cells…liver cells…muscle cells…pancreatic cells…joint cells… or even a brain cell.
When a stem cell is placed into the brain it becomes a brain cell, when put in the liver it becomes a liver cell, when placed in the pancreas it becomes a pancreatic cell. This is why scientists have been able to grow human organs such as livers, kidneys, etc. inside the lab using stem cells.
This ability of stem cells to differentiate into specific cell types means that they are a “renewable source of replacement cells and tissues to treat diseases,” according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) website.
In addition to stem cells remarkable anti-aging potential, the NIH scientists are testing the ability of adult stem cells to support normal structure and function when faced with various diseases such as cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, Parkinson’s, stroke, burns, and even spinal cord injuries.
The good news is that you don’t have to have expensive stem cells injected into your body from an outside source in order to experience the anti-aging and health benefits of stem cells because…
Stem cells are already in abundant supply in your bone marrow!
This is something I have been sharing for a long time. In fact, I believe this is a huge factor in the thousands of testimonies that people have shared after they did something as simple as change from the Standard American Diet to the Hallelujah Diet.
In a healthy body (one that is being properly nourished), the body has the building materials it needs to repair almost any area that is not functioning at peak performance, even to the producing of stem cells in the bone marrow which are then carried by the blood to every part of the body to fix and repair broken down areas.
Thus, the physical body of a person on the Hallelujah Diet, because it is a diet that provides the body with almost every nutrient the body has need of, keeps the body in such a high state of health that it is capable of restoring soundness to most every malfunctioning part.
This is key to understanding the reason why tens of thousands have been able to write and share with me that after they adopted the Hallelujah Diet they have recovered from over 170 different physical and psychological problems.
Stem Cells Can Even Slow Aging
Because stem cells can repair broken down parts of the body and restore health, stem cells are now being hailed as one of the most exciting breakthroughs in the anti-aging industry.
Stem Cells Are The Body’s Repair Kit
Visually, we see this built in self-healing begin to manifest almost immediately before our eyes after a cut in the skin occurs. Blood automatically flows forth from where the break in the skin occurs to cleanse the wound. This is followed by a scab forming over the break to protect the break from the elements, while underneath the scab the surrounding skin cells recognize the need to divide and grow till the break in the skin has been closed and the skin is knit back together.
As we examine what is transpiring a little closer, we see that new cells multiply to fill in the void while it is the blood that carries the nutrients and building blocks to the wound site. Then as the void is filled with new skin, the replication of cells is slowly turned off so that a skin tumor does not form from excess cell replication. In other words, skin cells know when to grow and when to stop growing and all without any help from the person who has experienced the cut and without any help from an outside source.
And all this takes place automatically. If the cut is overly large, the wound might need some stitches to hold the skin close enough together so the body can do what it was designed by God to do, but it is the body itself that does all of the healing.
We also see this self healing manifest when a bone is broken. Sometimes it takes the proper aligning of the bone so that after the body has knit the bone back together it is in the correct position to function properly, but it is the body that knits the bone back together, making the bone even stronger then it was before the break.
Stem cells have the ability to not only rebuild broken down parts of the body, but can reinvigorate tissues damaged by disease, toxins, and trauma. Stem cells are the body’s built-in mechanism for renewing itself and staying young.
However, the body can only perform these functions when it has a sufficient number of stem cells to renew itself.
The nutrients in the Hallelujah Diet increase the production and release of adult stem cells into the blood stream that then migrate to the parts of the body that need repair and renewal.
Scientists have found that mice injected with stem cells lived two to three times longer than those without the stem cells.
Additionally, the National Institute of Health (NIH) scientists are testing the ability of adult stem cells to support normal structure and function when faced with certain diseases such as cancer, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, etc. and help rebuild what these diseases have damaged.
Possibilities When Stem Cell Production Is Increased:
- Reverse baldness and hair loss
- Reverse eye problems
- Repair heart attack damage and prevent heart disease
- Repair spinal cord injury and reverse Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
- Repair brain damage from stroke, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s
- Help heal various types of cancer
- More rapid healing of wounds
- …and the list goes on.
And so it behooves each one of us to eat a healthy diet and live a healthy lifestyle so that our body has the resources to keep all body systems functioning as God designed so that we can live a healthy life well into our senior years. With this new knowledge about stem cells, we know that this is now a strong possibility to the age of 120 years.
“AND THE LORD SAID, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an HUNDRED and TWENTY YEARS.”

Hallelujah Acres Teaches Health From A Biblical Perspective
When Rhonda and I started Hallelujah Acres in 1992 (over 20 years ago), there was a lot of criticism coming from the Christian community because the Hallelujah Diet excluded all animal source foods which many said God gave mankind permission to consume following the flood in Genesis 9:3.
However, as people began to realize more and more that those who were adopting the Hallelujah Diet, which was based on God’s original Genesis 1:29 diet of 100% plant source foods, were recovering from almost every physical and psychological problem they had been experiencing prior to adopting the Hallelujah Diet, criticism began to subside.
Today, Hallelujah Acres is a worldwide ministry with over 12,000 trained Health Ministers sharing the Hallelujah Acres health message. These Health Ministers are now located in every state in the United States as well as in 64 foreign countries. Our website www.hacres.com contains hundreds of hours of nutritional information, and we have a staff of some 40 full-time employees.
Our International Headquarters is located in Gastonia, North Carolina and our health message goes forth not only from our International headquarters and our 12,000 trained Health Ministers scattered across American and around the world, but also on the internet to some 40,000 recipients weekly through this electronic Health Tip as well as in monthly seminars held in the Southeastern United States.
Next week, the good Lord willing and if the creeks don’t rise too high we will return with another exciting issue of the Hallelujah Health Tip. Trust you will join us and that you will share these Health Tips with friends and loved ones.
