In 1993, Brian was given 6 months to live — and a painful way to die. He had a genetic blood disorder that ballooned his kidneys and threatened to eat away his organs, one by one.
But by taking a dietary detour through the Garden of Eden, Brian’s dead end turned into a carefree highway. And he’s still cruising 20 years later! Here’s what he did…
“Dear Dr. Malkmus, I’ve just finished reading your Health Tip on ‘Vegetable Juice – Key to Health’, and the very interesting question from one of your readers asking why you promote vegetable juices on The Hallelujah Diet when there were no juicers in the Garden of Eden.
Regarding juicing, my testimony goes back to 1993 when my doctor gave me the good news – I had 6 months to get my affairs in order. The bad news was that what I had was the most painful way to die, as all the soft tissue organs break down one by one.
Already my kidneys were the size of a small football and very hard and their function failing. I had hemochromatosis, a genetic blood disorder that continues to build up. A healthy level of ferritin (iron in storage) would have been 200 units – my reading was just under 4000. That meant that there was absolutely no chance of the body getting rid of that much iron.
After a massive pity party grieving my own pending death I decided that by then I only had five months left on planet earth and this was serious so I had better start fighting what was going to kill me. I had heard of The Hallelujah Diet and decided it was a good starting point. So I went out and bought a juicer and 20 kilograms (44 lb.) of carrots. I had already shared my plight with my pastor and several widow ladies.
My doctor told me that the best reliable statistics were that it takes the removal of 104 pints of blood taken from my body to remove 1000 units of ferritin. Over a period of time I had this done four times, along with consuming an all raw diet and consuming 20 kg of carrots (in the form of juice) weekly.
Within a year my ferreting was down to 20, which is below normal standards. Bottom line is I did not die, and as I share this testimony on 5 September 2013, it is 20 years since I was told I would be dead in 6 months. I could go on and share what God has done to fix my heart problem, my diabetes problem, and many other lesser medical problems.
As I approach my 73rd birthday, and 20 years since this bloodletting and juicing has saved my life, Hallelujah Acres has been a very valuable tool in the maintaining the total well-being of my body, along with prayer which has helped me maintain a good spirit and healthy attitude about life. I believe brother Malkmus’ writings in his Health Tips, providing me with pertinent information that helped me maintain a well-balanced, strong attitude and immune system as I take no medication and rarely even get a sniffle let alone the flu, because I keep my immune system strong.
Over the past 20 years I have recognized that we have a responsibility to do our part in maintaining our bodies if we want and expect God to heal us. From 6 months to live in 1993 as was pronounced by the top professor on blood disorders in my state to age 73 following my getting involved in my recovery, my personal expectation is now 120 years, exactly the full measure God said we could achieve in Genesis 6:3.”

“Years ago, I was introduced to The Hallelujah Diet by my pastor and his wife who are Health Ministers with Hallelujah Acres. I took many notes and heeded every detail of information shared. I did the Hallelujah mostly raw diet along with BarleyMax and Fiber Cleanse, and drank distilled water. I got plenty of exercise and sun, followed God’s Way to Ultimate Health, and got VERY GOOD results. I lost three dress sizes, my blood pressure normalized, my stomach pain went away, and my arthritic joints stopped swelling as did my knees and ankles. Also, my acne went away and I now have clear skin. Glory to God!”
