Thomas P. was born on February 3, 1997. At birth, Thomas weighed 7 pounds 3 ounces and was 21 inches tall. Thomas was perfect in every way, was breast fed, and grew to be 13 pounds. Then at the beginning of his fourth month Thomas began to lose weight rapidly. Within four weeks he went down to 7 pounds, which was lower than his birth weight.

At this time Thomas was taken to a local hospital where they could not diagnose the problem. He was then sent to Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, where he was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis (CF). The disease has many symptoms and is life threatening. The secretions in a person with CF become very thick so the mucus in the lungs cannot drain. This thick mucus causes bacteria to grow in the lungs and the person usually gets pneumonia many, many times, while pneumonia is usually the cause of death….

As you can imagine we all felt helpless. We cried out to our Lord Jesus for healing. We knew the Lord would answer, we just did not know how or when. Thomas was on about 9 medications at 5 months old and continued to be sick for the next 17 months. During this period of time Thomas was hospitalized 9 times–two of the stays lasting over 6 weeks. These stays were always for pneumonia.

During these hospitalizations Thomas was given antibiotics intravenously. His veins were very small and would collapse, and so they would put the I.V. in various places–hands, feet, head, ankles, etc. This was a very painful procedure for this sick little boy. At 19 months they decided to surgically place a tube into his stomach for feeding. Several times Thomas got infection around the site of the tube and this meant more antibiotics. Thomas also had other problems too numerous to mention, but we continued to have faith in God.

The answer came when Thomas reached the age of 22 months. It came through a good friend, Janet Reaver, who is also a Health Minister. She shared with us the miracle of the ‘Hallelujah Diet.’ She explained that it had helped many people get well. She explained that a diet rich in raw fruits, vegetables, and fresh squeezed vegetable juices could make the difference. She also explained that this food feeds our cells, causing the new cells to become healthy and strengthen our DNA. This was a new and challenging idea and one we decided would be right for our family.

We started Thomas on the Hallelujah Diet in December 1998, with great success! Since beginning the diet Thomas has not had any pneumonia, not even a cold. He now weighs 29 lbs. When Thomas has his quarterly check-ups at Johns Hopkins the doctors are amazed because Thomas no longer has the typical signs of a CF child: he has no shortness of breath, no cough, and no thick secretions. Recent x-rays show that the scar tissue on his lungs, caused by the many pneumonias, is completely gone! Thomas is now a healthy 3.5 year old who loves taking his vegetable juices and eating big healthy salads. Praise the Lord for answering our prayers.

P.S. Thomas is not the only one in the family who has been helped by this Hallelujah Diet. I have personally recovered from fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. My father’s high blood pressure and diabetes are gone! My mother-in-law got rid of high blood pressure and hypothyroidism. Other grandchildren have been healed of chronic ear infections, sinus infections, and chronic asthmatic bronchitis. We are so grateful to George Malkmus for sharing this diet with the world.
