In November 2004, we attended Health Ministry training at Hallelujah Acres, where we both received our certificates as Health Ministers. As of this writing, my health has been restored and I have been able to stop all medications! My allergies are gone! I no longer have severe headaches! And I have more energy than I have had in years! I have been released by my hematologist/oncologist, and my depression is gone! I failed to mention that I have had three skin cancers removed from my face and have had many pre-cancers frozen off with liquid nitrogen. In early summer 2004, my dermatologist started me on Efudex, chemotherapy in cream form that I used all over my face and head. This was to be a lifetime sentence, and I was told to stay out of the sun. After starting the Hallelujah Acres lifestyle, I spent many days in the sun while boating, water skiing, walking, hiking, etc. . ., and yet in September 2004, my dermatologist released me! In addition to all this, I have lost 28 pounds (going from 190 to 162) and my wife has lost 25 pounds.
His kidney function is over 90%, and we just received word last week, following an EEG, that he shows no signs of seizures! Nor has there been even one bout of pneumonia! His eyesight has improved each time he has been back to the optometrist! And he tells me almost daily that he only wants me to give him healthy food.
Also, since our lifestyle change, I have lost over 50 pounds! I lost 13 pounds the first month and 17 pounds the second. Since giving birth to my daughter 12 years ago, I have had irregular menstrual cycles. At one point I went 4- years without one. But after just three days of eating raw, I have been like clockwork -- that is until August 2003 - I am due to give birth in one month. our Hallelujah baby is on her way!
I knew from his answers that I really didn't need the radiation, so I began to juice and cleanse my body. What I did is almost identical to the Hallelujah Diet. I wouldn't trade what I have done for anything in the world.
Since then, I have been slowly working out of the Construction business, and Dorothy and I have recently jumped into the Health Ministry full time. Besides teaching our group and writing a weekly newsletter, we have a stand at a large Farmer's Market, and do Festival and Craft Shows, where we share with many people that God does not want them to be sick. Our vision is to one-day see Northeastern Pennsylvania become one of the healthiest places in America, next to your North Carolina, of course!
We are all different and we all are fighting different illnesses, but we are all created by God, and He told us what to eat when He formed us from the dust and placed us in a garden. My husband Bill and I stay very close to the Hallelujah Diet.
I have pastored a church full-time for most of the last 26 years and presently pastor a growing church with 150 active members. Needless to say, we have made a lifetime commitment to stay with the Hallelujah Lifestyle and to reach as many others as we can with this health message. Thank you for teaching us that 'Christians don't have to be sick'.
It is my heart's desire for all my Christian family to return to the Garden where God's original diet was given and was sufficient. Then they too will be energetic and free of disease so that they can serve the Lord with radiance and vitality. Thank you for Hallelujah Acres.
If all this were not enough, we attended Rev. Malkmus' first Saturday-of-the-Month seminar before returning home. We were on cloud nine when we left, because now my husband and I were in total agreement regarding The Hallelujah Diet. Today, as a result of adopting The Hallelujah Diet, I am medication free, bloating and indigestion are a thing of the past, I have no more constipation problems, and I have lost 40 pounds. Hallelujah!
In July I was approached by Wendy McCown, who had just returned from Health Minister Training and she shared with me that I didn't have to be sick. She taught me how to eat, gave me the materials I needed to read and I saw immediate results that first week. That was seven months ago and now I feel terrific.
However, it was awhile before I could see my doctor. When I was finally able to see my doctor, I had blood work done before my visit, and when I went in to see my doctor, he told me that the goiter (enlarged thyroid gland) was half the size it was when he had last seen me eight months prior, and he told me I no longer had to take any more meds, meds I had already stopped taking long before that visit with my doctor.
