If you didn’t know any better, you’d swear John Denver wrote Take Me Home, Country Roads sitting poolside at Ben and Janis Medeiros’ home overlooking the rolling hills near Parkersburg, West Virginia. Perched on a picturesque hill, the Medeiros’ home offers a commanding view of its private, serene surroundings — the perfect setting for regaining health and healing!
Exquisite in its setting and its décor, this six-bedroom home boasts a large living room, dining room, and a spacious Hallelujah-friendly kitchen on the main floor. A fully furnished basement includes an exercise room, large game/theater room, a second kitchen for juicing, and even an infrared sauna. At the rear of the home, a glassed-in sunroom overlooks the rolling hillsides and a multi-tiered deck leads to a near-Olympic size saltwater pool with plenty of deck space to replenish your vitamin D in the sunshine. The expansive, resort-style yard also features a volleyball court, fishpond, and serves as the gateway to 240 additional acres including beautiful scenery and a peaceful atmosphere.
Ben and Jan hadn't always lived here, however. Their story started with a construction business in California. After years in the business, Ben's joints were so painful that he couldn't get out of bed by himself — at age 50. His high cholesterol didn't help, either. Thus, their health journey began. After years of easing into a plant-based diet, they had it mastered by 2008. Ben's cholesterol dropped from 380 to 162 and by 2010, both Ben and Janis rebuilt their health and became Hallelujah Acres Health Ministers. They retired from their construction business to focus full-time on helping others regain their health for life.
Ben and Janis officially opened their home as a Lifestyle Center in 2011 and visitors have been filling up the schedule ever since! Whether you want to spice up your new Hallelujah lifestyle with some action and adventure at nearby tourist attractions or just enjoy the serenity of the scenery, the Hallelujah Acres Lifestyle Center in West Virginia has what you’re looking for. With a powerful personal testimony to draw from, expert culinary skills, and a caring teaching style, you’re in good hands here. Ben and Janis know what it’s like to live without good health. More importantly, they know how to help you regain your health so that you can be a testimony to others. “We want everyone to know how their bodies can heal themselves when given the right foods,” say Ben and Janis. “We are looking forward to sharing our home with as many as will come.”
We congratulate Ben and Jan on their accomplishments. We celebrate their story, their journey with The Hallelujah Diet, and look forward to more from them in the years ahead!
