For the past two weeks, we have shared a day on The Hallelujah Diet. Many readers were surprised to learn how easy it can be to follow The Hallelujah Diet during the daytime hours — even when away from home!
In this Health Tip we’re going to discuss The Hallelujah Recovery Diet, a diet specifically designed for those who need to more aggressively support their body’s self-healing efforts when dealing with life-threatening physical problems.
The Healthy Cell Concept
In order to understand how The Recovery Diet works, we need to understand what will be happening at the cellular level of the body when we apply its principles. Without an understanding of what is happening at the cellular level we will not be able to appreciate the amazing power of the nutrients found in the foods and juices of The Recovery Diet.
As a basis for understanding, we need to realize that our body is a LIVING organism, comprised of LIVING cells that were designed by God to be nourished exclusively with LIVING (raw) plant-sourced foods.
All cooked foods are dead foods and incapable of properly nourishing a living body.
It is interesting to note that every animal in the wild, whether plant eating or flesh eating, ever since creation to this present day, following their natural instincts as they were programmed by God, have instinctively consumed 100% of their food in its natural, raw, living form.
Sadly, humans have lost this natural instinct.
Our physical bodies are comprised of approximately 100 trillion living cells. Everything we are in the physical is comprised of these living cells:
- our hair and nails are living (we have to cut them because they keep growing)
- our skin, bones, blood, immune system, muscle, heart, etc. are living
- … everything we are comprised of in the physical is in the form of living cells!
God so made us that these living cells are constantly in the process of dying and replacing themselves over varying amounts of time. Many blood cells replace daily; taste buds take about two weeks to replace; we replace the entire outer layer of skin in about four weeks; and it takes about a year to replace our bone structure.
These living cells die and replace themselves at the rate of approximately 300 million per minute! In other words, our body is constantly in a renewal process.
As old cells die and are replaced with new cells, the quality of the new cell replacing the old cell is totally dependent on the building materials (nourishment) we provide those cells.
We have almost complete control of the quality of these new cells — what we eat today will determine tomorrow’s body.
When the Bible tells us that “We are fearfully and wonderfully made” in Psalm 139:14, truer words were never spoken! Imagine our God, providing each of us with a body, capable of constantly being in the process of rebuilding, rejuvenating, renewing, and restoring our body’s integrity on a moment-by-moment basis! What a wonderful God we have!
But that’s all God’s part; that’s how He designed us! Next, He takes this incredible, God-created, physical body with all this rejuvenating power and turns it over to us to provide the nourishment necessary to maintain it. Once God provides us with a physical body it’s up to us as to how well it functions, how healthy we are, and how long we live.
Consider what God has to say about this physical body and our responsibility to our bodies in keeping it functioning well:
“What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. (I Corinthians 6:19-20)
“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile [do harm to it by placing things into it that God never intended to enter it] the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.” (I Corinthians 3:16-17)
“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)
God Gave Us A Diet To Sustain Our Physical Bodies
After God created that first human, Adam, in Genesis 2:7 (giving him a physical body comprised of all living cells), He placed Adam in a garden (Genesis 2:8). In Genesis 1:29, God told Adam what foods he should nourish his physical body with in order to provide his body’s cells with the best building materials in order to keep the body’s cells strong.
Here is what God told Adam to eat in order to keep his body cells strong:
“AND GOD SAID, Behold, I have given you every herb [VEGETABLE] 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)
The Secret To Proper Cell Nourishment
Remember that, as the cells of our body are dying and replacing themselves at the rate of 300 million minute, the quality of the new cell is dependent on the quality of the building materials we provide it.
Living (raw), plant-sourced foods fromt he garden are indeed the ideal building materials — God says so in Genesis 1:29 as there was no means of cooking food at the time God created Adam.
Here at Hallelujah Acres we have learned that anything other than living, plant-sourced foods are inferior building materials and fail to provide the body’s cells with the nutrients needed to create superior cells.
To put it simply…
- Superior quality building materials — from raw, plant-sourced foods and especially their juices — produce a new cell that is superior to the cell it is replacing!
- Anything coming from a food source found outside of the garden or that is cooked, provides the living cells with inferior building materials.
Only The Body Has The Power To Heal
There is not a doctor, drug, radiation, or surgery that can heal anyone of anything! Why? Because it is only the body that has the power to heal. All man has the power to do is bring about conditions within the body that will help the body to do what it was designed by God to do, that is, heal itself!
Consider that, when a bone in the body is broken, a doctor can set the bones in alignment, but that is as far as the doctor can go. Ultimately it is the body itself that knits the bones back together. It is the same thing with a laceration! The doctor can close the wound, but only the body has the power to knit the skin back together.
It is the same thing when it comes to a life-threatening disease! If we want to heal from a life threatening disease such as cancer, once again, it is only the body that has the power to heal. All a doctor can do is either help or hinder the body in its healing attempt.
When treating such a patient, the very first thing that should be considered is what Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, had to say thousands of years ago:
Do Thy Patient No Harm
When we look at the modalities used by 21st-century medicine, it is a miracle anyone survives the treatments! Chemotherapy is an extremely toxic drug capable of killing a healthy person, never mind a person with cancer whose immune system is weakened! Furthermore, radiation burns the body causing additional harm, while surgery only removes the symptom; it does nothing to remove the cause of the problem.
In most instances, these medical modalities actually hinder the body in its attempt to heal itself. Often the patient will improve in the short term only to experience the cancer returning because of the irreparable damage done to the immune system by these toxic and cell-destroying procedures.
Is There A Better Way? Absolutely!
God has blessed each of us with an immune system designed by God to protect us from germs, viruses, bacteria, and yes, cancer. But when our immune system has been weakened because we have not provided it with good nutrition so that it has the ability to protect us from cancer (as God designed it to do), that weakened immune system allows cancer to get a foothold and grow.
Rather than doing further damage to the immune system than has already been done prior to the cancer discovery due to poor diet and lifestyle, and then further weakening the immune system with toxic drugs and burning radiation, let’s instead provide the immune system with the nutrients it needs to rebuild the immune system. This way, the body has the nutrients it needs in order to rebuild the immune system.
That is the whole approach of The Hallelujah Recovery Diet. First, it does the body “no harm” as Hippocrates admonished. It removes the things that hinder the body’s ability to heal itself, while providing the body with the nutrients and non-toxic supplements it needs to have the very best chance of ridding itself of the cancer, using its own self-healing mechanism, built in by God.
Next week, the good Lord willing and if the creeks don’t rise too high, we will explain in detail The Hallelujah Recovery Diet. We will talk about what are the very best foods and supplements needed to help the body recover from a life-threatening illness, such as cancer. We will also discuss what items must be removed from the diet in order to give the body the best chance of surviving. Trust you will join us!
