Can Drugs Cure Disease?

In last week’s Health Tip, we learned from the following verses what God had to say about man’s wisdom 2,000 years ago and the healing results the medical doctors were obtaining:

“For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.” (I Corinthians 3:19-20)

“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 5:25-26)

In spite of all the claims of new knowledge and advancements in medical care, the health of the American people of today continues to decline. All the while, the cost of government sanctioned and protected health care spirals out of control.


We will next consider: Why Drugs Cannot Heal Anyone of Anything; and over the next few weeks deal with Healing Alternatives to Drugs; and God’s Provision – Self-Healing

Why Drugs Cannot Heal Anyone Of Anything

Last week we saw the horrendous results a few people experienced going the medical route with their cancer, using such modalities as chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery.

In this Health Tip I will expand on the dangers inherent in ALL DRUGS!


The only substances God designed the human physical body to ever have placed within it are the foods God designed the human physical body to be nourished with. God clearly defines what foods these were in Genesis 1:29 – exclusively living plant foods created by God designed to nourish the human physical body He created.

“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 of 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)

“AND GOD SAID, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed (vegetable), 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)

Following creation, as long as man consumed only these living (raw) plant foods, there was not a single recorded instance of sickness in the Bible.

However, once man started to deviate from God’s original Genesis 1:29 diet of raw garden foods (by adding meat in Genesis 9:3) and began cooking his food, sickness began to manifest and the lifespan began to shorten.

It’s interesting to note that every animal in the wild (both herbivore and carnivore) instinctively knows to consume all its food in its natural raw form as served up by nature — just as God provided and intended.

As long as these animals in the wild remain on the raw foods God intended for them, sickness is almost non-existent. But if we domesticate a wild animal – dog, cat, etc. — feed them boxed, canned, and cooked foods, they develop cancers, arthritis, and many of the other degenerative diseases common to man.

Drugs Offer No Nourishment

Drugs offer no nourishment whatsoever to the body. They are toxic chemical poisons that become extremely destructive when placed into the body. Any substance introduced into the body — by injection (vaccinations), absorption, respiration or ingestion — that cannot be utilized as food becomes a poison when placed into the body.

When these poisonous drugs are placed into the body, the body’s self-defense mechanism (placed there by God) is activated. The body seeks the removal of this toxic substance as rapidly as possible. All such actions by the body are normal, but also damaging to the body.

Medical doctors use a system called allopathic medicine in an effort to remove the symptoms of disease. “Allopathic” or “Allopathy” is defined by Webster’s Dictionary as: “the method of treating disease by the use of agents that produce effects different from those of the disease.”


The Bible Warns About The Use of Drugs


Rather than strengthening the body’s immune system with good nutrition to assist the body in fighting the disease, the approach of allopathy is to introduce a foreign substance (a toxic drug) into the body to “produce effects different from those of the disease”.

Here is what God has to say concerning DRUGS:

“… for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy SORCERIES were all nations deceived.” (Revelation 18:23)


The word “sorceries” comes from the Greek word, “pharmakeia” from which we derive the words “pharmacy”, “pharmaceutical” and “pharmacist”. And what does a “pharmacist” dispense? Drugs! Here’s how Webster’s definition of a “pharmacist”: “A person licensed to prepare and dispense DRUGS…”

The Bible tells us that in the end times, and surely we are living in such days, “all nations will be deceived by these SORCERIES” — by these DRUGS!

When a person goes to a doctor, what do they almost always leave the doctor’s office with? Is it not with a DRUG prescription, to be taken to a pharmacist who fills that DRUG prescription?

While a drug may help relieve a symptom temporarily (high fever, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, headache, inability to sleep, and we could go on), every drug has a toxic effect upon the body, called an “adverse reaction”.

When you hear a drug being promoted on the television to relieve a particular symptom, have you ever taken note of the potential side effects or adverse reactions the drug might produce? Some of the potential adverse reactions can even include “death.”

As you read the ads in various magazines, have you ever taken note of the pretty picture and words telling of the positive effect a particular drug might have upon a symptom, and then turn the page and read two pages of small print telling of the adverse reactions that drug might produce?

On my desk sits a copy of the “Physicians’ Desk Reference” manual (PDR). It was given to me by one of the 65 medical doctors who have gone through Health Minister training here at Hallelujah Acres. This particular PDR (1997) has 2,998 pages of the potential adverse side effects a patient might experience from each of the drugs a doctor can prescribe.

Drugs Do Not Heal


Drugs are incapable of healing anyone of anything! Drugs are only capable of producing additional disease (or “side effects”) for the body to contend with. This makes it increasingly difficult for the body to heal.

Sadly, most doctors do not seek the cause of an illness or seek to remove that cause so that the body can heal itself. Instead the protocol is to treat the symptom with a toxic drug.

Because the symptom is often relieved by the drug, the patient thinks they are on the right track to improved health. They don’t realize that the drug has the potential of creating new symptoms for which additional drugs will often be needed. Treating symptoms with drugs will never heal anyone of anything, but rather exacerbate the problem.

The Only Solution To Disease


The only way to remove symptoms permanently is to remove the CAUSE of the symptom, and start nourishing the body with the nutrients it needs to rebuild its immune system.

Once the symptom has been removed and the immune system rebuilt with good nutrition, the body’s self-healing mechanism, placed there by God, will kick in, enabling the body to literally heal itself of whatever the physical problem (in most instances).



Next week, the good Lord willing, we will explore non-toxic alternatives to the drugs being used today to deal with physical problems. I trust you will join us and that you are finding the information in this series as interesting and informative as much as I am researching and writing it.


  1. This title caught my eye, as it was most likely designed to do. However, after reading it, some very dogmatic statements were made in a propaganda-like manner that border on foolish at their best, and dangerous at their worst.

    Let me clarify first by saying that I whole-heartedly agree with and follow the vegan and health principles dictated by the Hallelujah diet. I am healthier today as a result of this way of eating than I was 8 years ago when I was a meat-eater. However, I believe that this article has taken some liberties in the promotion of this cause, which are not wise to promote to the general populace.

    For example, making the statement that the Bible warns us about taking medications simply because of the root Greek Word is reaching pretty far. Granted, the current English words for pharmacist, etc. come from this Greek word, but the Biblical inference in this verse is discussing witchcraft and demonic activities associated with the Anti-Christ and the False Prophet during the Tribulation.
    It’s not a reference to stay away from pharmacists and medication. This is a classic example of drawing a reader in through supposition and conjecture to make them follow an intended path. While pharmacists do indeed dispense medication (drugs), I think one would be grossly negligent to suggest that they are evil and should be avoided because a Greek word in the Bible makes a reference to a completely different topic a couple thousand years ago. Equally negligent, is to say that people who take medications should be aware that they may be deceived by doing so. Clearly, language and words progress over time to mean different things.

    Secondly, I vehemently agree with and support Rev Malkmus’ statement that the body should be fed good quality, nutrient dense foods to allow the body’s own immune system to work correctly and heal itself. However, there are some cases where the body simply cannot do this on its own without medicinal assistance. No, I’m not discounting or disrespecting God’s creation of our bodies or calling them inferior. But the fact of the matter is, there are some diseases today that are simply so aggressive, without medicinal help, the body will be overcome by them. Classic examples of these are certain infections like Staph, tetanus, various sexually transmitted diseases, and organ disorders. The bacteria and viral properties in things like these multiply and replicate quickly, and for all but the absolute rarest of circumstances, they require medication to keep them from over-running the body.
    Moreover, perhaps if you’ve been living the vegan/juicing lifestyle for your whole life, your body may be in position to fight some of these things effectively. That’s another subject. However, the reality is most of us simply aren’t there yet – especially our children. Interestingly enough, at the end of the article is the disclaimer “in most instances.” What about those other instances? Who makes that determination?

    We recently, made the choice to give our child a certain medication for an infection he had. Believe me, we poured the carrot juice down him until he was orange in his skin, but the infection got worse. Ultimately, we made the responsible decision to get him treated medically. He is fine today.

    By contrast, my mother had breast cancer, and was following a similar version of the vegan/juicing diet. She was drinking between one and two gallons of carrot juice per day. Her cancer was caught at the beginning stages and the doctors told her she simply needed to have a small surgery and take a medication and it would be fine. She refused, believing that her body would heal itself. Long story made short – she died. Her refusal to heed sound medical advice because of her persuasion that “drugs are evil” cost her and us her life.

    I agree that drugs treat the symptom, not the cause. But while we are treating the cause through healthy diet and exercise, I believe it’s foolish and irresponsible to suggest that one should completely turn their backs on any and all medications because “drugs can’t heal anything.” Certainly, there are adverse side effects to drugs. But then again, there are potential adverse side effects to everything we do in life. There are adverse side effects to shaving my face in the morning, driving in rush hour, and even using the juicer to make my carrot juice.

    The responsible person will not simply shun a particular form of treatment until they know the facts, the potential results (positive and negative), and then pray about it. Doctors are after the same things we are – to get people well. I believe God can use doctors to assist in the healing process.

    The message of healthy eating and the Hallelujah diet is a God-given and profound message that needs to preached more. However, we as responsible and educated adults need to think for ourselves and realize that turning our back on modern science in fear that our bodies will somehow be “poisoned” by a medication when it could bring relief is ignorance gone to seed. Many have heard in recent news the stories of parents whose children died because they would not take them to be treated by a doctor. This is the same thing. We should weigh each situation out, pray about it, and then make the best choice of whether medical intervention is necessary. God gave us a spirit to reach for and communicate with Him and a brain to think rationally and logically – we should use both for such.

  2. I would have to agree with Dave on this. It’s one thing to look at a word and another to look at the context of the word. A little to much liberty here. I love what The Hallelujah group is doing and support it. Thanks so much George for your leadership!

    I agree with Dave as well. I am a pharmacist and so I take great offense at being called a sorceror and a deliverer of the demonic drugs. I am a fan of Hallelujah Acres, but disagree with this article. Drugs may mostly treat symptoms, but many can cure as the infection story above describes. Medical science has much to learn about the intricate workings of the human body. But drugs cannot be dismissed simply as products of greedy drug companies and poisonous chemicals being put into our bodies.

  4. Countless times every day. Antibiotics cure many diseases caused by bacteria, such as strep throat, tuberculosis, pneumonia, diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough), malaria, invasive H. flu, pneumococcal Disease, Tetanus, Typhoid, Yellow Fever, Lyme Disease, etc… Vaccines have eradicated small pox from the planet saving countless lives. We have also saved many people from measles, mumps, rubella, polio, and even chickenpox.

  5. An organic raw vegan diet heals by eliminating toxins and deficiencies. Drugs have their place too. Some drugs do not work at all, but still have very serious side effects, and should not be on the market. Selfish greed is destroying the planet and all life. Big pharma is the second richest industry in the world. Vivisection is unscientific and evil, and proves just how barbaric, backward, and selfish, humans are. Vaccines do not work at all; every ingredient is poisonous. Vaccines damage the immune and nervous systems. God gave us an immune system that works if we eat an organic cruelty-free diet which is free from GM.
