This week’s testimony was sent in by Joan E., who lives in Lady Lake, Florida. Joan writes:
“When I came to the Hallelujah Acres Lifestyle Center, I was desperate! You see, I am a retired nurse and understand the medical world, and I knew that when I went to that Lifestyle Center I was very sick, very lethargic, very tired all the time. In fact I was sleeping until 10:00 or 11:00 a.m. every morning. I just couldn’t get out of bed due to extreme fatigue.
“When I arrived at the Lifestyle Center, I had been an insulin-dependent diabetic for ten years, and the main reason I went to the Lifestyle Center was that my doctors had told me that I needed to go on kidney dialysis due to renal failure. My kidneys were functioning at only 11%, and generally they put people on dialysis when they are functioning below 15% or 20%. My kidney function was a stage 3. I was scared, but determined not to go on the ‘kidney machine.’ As a nurse, I knew there was no quality of life when subjected to that machine on a regular basis.
“When my husband Wesley and I arrived at the Lifestyle Center, we were told that I was too sick to be a part of their program, but we asked to stay anyway. We arrived on a Sunday in March. Wesley had come along mainly to support me and to help me. We both wanted me to get well and were hopeful that the Hallelujah Diet would be the answer to our prayers for my healing.
“After only a few days on the Hallelujah Diet, I came to morning devotions. Everyone was surprised to see me there, and so alert and full of life. Some said that they saw a whole personality change in me that morning. I finally had energy! Wesley said he couldn’t remember the last time he had seen me up that early in the morning.
“After just three weeks on the Hallelujah Diet I went back to my Endocrinologist for a check-up. In just three weeks on the diet I had dropped 24 pounds; my acid reflux was gone; I was no longer falling to the ground (something doctors could never give me a reason for); I had energy; my edema was gone; my blood pressure had gone from 204 to 140/70, and I was off blood pressure medicine; my cholesterol had come down from 204 to 140 without meds; I no longer had body odor; and after ten years of being insulin dependent for diabetes I no longer needed insulin medicine!
“But the best news of all was that my doctor told me that I no longer had need to go on the kidney dialysis machine! Hallelujah!! The Hallelujah Diet saved my life and gave me back my life!
Wesley had this to say:
“Basically, I came to the Lifestyle Center to help my wife Joan. I had watched her struggle with diabetes and renal failure for years and was very concerned for her. I had been assisting her with her various physical problems for years and was hopeful that the Hallelujah Diet could stabilize her health. What I wasn’t expecting, was the changes that took place in me just being on the diet for that week at the Lifestyle Center. In just one week, I had lost 5 pounds, my cholesterol had dropped from 206 to 160, and I had my wife back! My wife Joan is now filled with new hope, renewed health! Our prayers have been answered! Hallelujah!”
