America, though it spends more money per capita on “Health Care” than any other nation on Earth, is close to being the sickest nation on Earth!
- More money is spent on health care in the USA than in any other nation in the world, and a greater percentage of total income in the nation is spent on health care in the USA than in any United Nations member state.
- The World Health Organization (WHO), in 2000, ranked the U.S. health care system as the highest in cost, 37th in overall performance, and 72nd in overall level of health.
- In 2009, the United States federal, state and local governments, corporations, and individuals, together spent $2.5 trillion on health care. That amount breaks down to $8,047 for every man, woman, and child in the country each year. This amount represented 17.3% of the GDP in 2008.
- Health insurance costs are rising faster than wages or inflation, and medical causes were cited by about half of bankruptcy filers in the United States in 2001.
How Is This Health Care System Working For You?
With National Health Care having been signed into law and with the constantly increasing cost of health care, are we getting the results and seeing the improved health promised by our current government?
Of course, the answer is a resounding “NO”!
If any business in the business world provided such poor results, it would go out of business. But not the health care business. The worse the results being obtained, the higher the cost, and the more it thrives.
Is there not something wrong with this picture?
Yet our government continues to subsidize this failed industry with tax payer dollars (yours and mine) which will force every citizen, whether they pay taxes or not, or want to be a part of it or not, into this failed system.
From where I sit, I am constantly receiving emails from people who have given this system every opportunity to fix their broken bodies — but their results prove the current health care system’s efforts are a dismal failure.
Letters Tell of Health Care Failures
“Good morning Rev. Malkmus, I am so up to my ears in trying to feel better. I have been dealing with health issues since 2003. Here’s a quick rundown on what happened to me:
In 2003 I took a drug for what the doctor said was a bladder infection. I took only one drug ‘Floxin’, one pill, one time, and that one pill has destroyed my life. I ceased being that happy active mom and wife. I have spent the past eight years looking for help from the medical community.
I’m so tired of going to doctors looking for answers and finding none that I could scream. This one pill, taken only one time, has affected my whole central nervous system. I feel on edge every second of every day. It is awful. I cry myself to sleep most nights thinking of how my life used to be before taking that pill.
I am a Christian and have prayed to the point I don’t even know how to pray anymore. Rev. Malkmus is there anything at all that you can think of that can help me or do you know of any doctor that might be able to shed some light on how to overcome the affect this drug has had on my life and body?”
Jackie R., Miami
“Dr. Malkmus, My 57-year old husband has advanced stage 4 prostate cancer with bone metastasis. He was sent home in November 2010 to die as the doctors said there was nothing more they could do for him.
Over the years and especially since last fall I have encouraged him to go vegan but it was not an easy sell despite the fact that we are both ordained ministers. We should have been eating to live – not the opposite as the world is doing, living to eat – and we have repented.
In January 2011 I did convince him to begin vegetable juicing and it started to turn around his cancer. His PSA fell from 348 to 112. However, he still insisted on some animal products and as a result in April his PSA started to rise again.
We are both on leave from ministry at this time as he is very ill. His left side, especially his left leg is losing circulation. The doctors want to give him more radiation but he says ‘no’.
I have just completed Dr. Campbell’s three online courses from Cornell on plant based nutrition and one of my instructors directed me to you and the Hallelujah Acres website. I really thank you for all you are doing in the field of biblical nutrition. I am astonished by all that I have learned.
We both lost our first spouses to cancer. My first husband and the father of my two children died at age 33 of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Now my second husband has terminal cancer. I believe God has a nutritional ministry in mind for the two of us once he recovers.”
In My Seminars…
In my seminars I will often ask questions of those attending. Here are a few of those questions that I ask:
How many of you have had a friend, loved one, or family member who was diagnosed with cancer?
- Almost every hand in the room goes up. Then I ask how many of those who had cancer died after being treated for their cancer. It is hard sometimes to see much difference between the numbers of those who had cancer and those who diedfollowing cancer treatment.
How many of you, or a friend, family member, or loved one were prescribed a drug for the physical problem being experienced?
- The response is almost 100% of those present.
How many had an adverse reaction to a doctor prescribed drug?
- Once again, almost every hand was raised.
How many of you, or a friend, family member, or loved one was cured of the physical problem they were given the drug to correct to the extent they no longer had need of that drug?
- Hardly ever does a hand get raised.
The Two Letters Above
For a moment, let’s reflect on the two letters above and the results to the questions I ask in my seminars to see how they compare.
In the letter from Marilyn, both her spouse and her husband’s spouse died following cancer treatment and now her current husband is in such critical condition after medical treatments, they have sent him home to die.
Is that not the same results indicated by the show of hands when I asked in my seminar “How many have a friend, loved one, or family member who was diagnosed with cancer?”
And when I asked “How many of those died after treatment,” did not it produce the same results as Marilyn and her husband experienced with their first spouses?
Now consider Jackie’s reaction after taking just one pill one time. Not only did it not correct the problem but produced new symptoms that have destroyed her life for the past eight years.
Isn’t that similar to results expressed by the thousands of people in my seminars who have not seen their physical problem cured as a result of taking a drug?
The World’s Way
What I have shared above is the world’s way of dealing with physical problems!
I find it so amazing that the world’s approach to physical problems today produces no better results than the results the doctors of the Bible 2,000 years ago:
“And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, and had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse.” (Mark 5:25-6)
Friends, the result people obtained going the world’s way in Bible times is the same today when they go the world’s way in their attempt to correct physical problems.
So the logical question one must ask is: “Is there a better way?”
Thankfully there is indeed a better way — God’s way!
Let’s see if the Bible can shed some light on the subject…
God Created Man – “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.” (Genesis 2:7)
God Placed Man In A Garden – “AND THE LORD GOD planted a garden eastward in Eden: and there he put the man whom he had formed.” (Genesis 2:8)
God Told Man What To Eat – “AND GOD SAID, Behold I have given you every herb bearing seed (vegetable), which is upon the face of the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seek; to you it shall be for meat.” (Genesis 1:29)
Man Charged With Taking Care Of His Own Body – “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.” (Romans 12:1)
Man Told Not To Pursue The World’s Way – “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 12:2)
Consequences Of Going The World’s Way – “Be not deceived, GOD IS NOT MOCKED, for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”(Galatians 6:7)
So we have messed up! We Christians have been following the “world’s way” instead of God’s way in how we take care of our physical bodies. We have consumed the world’s food and drink, and as a result have become sick, gone to the world’s doctors to get better, taken the world’s drugs, and suffer the same physical and emotional breakdowns as the world and to the same percentages.
Is It Too Late To Change?
For most people it is not too late to change and correct the results they have obtained by doing things the “world’s way.” In fact, almost every physical problem presently being experiencing can be corrected by ceasing to feed the body the world’s way and by starting to nourish it God’s way if the world’s way” has not already done irreversible damage.
How To Restore Your Health God’s Way will be the subject of next week’s Health Tip! I will give you a plan that will allow a person to fix almost any physical or psychological problem they are currently experiencing through a simple diet and lifestyle change — without doctors, drugs or health insurance. I pray you will join us!
