Last week I began responding to a letter that asked Does Rev. Malkmus Endorse Annual Physicals? As to whether Rhonda and I have “regular medical check-ups” - we do, though there are specialists visits that you may still be wondering about. Here are additional answers to the questions in the submission we received from Peggy:
Does Rhonda Have An Annual Mammogram?Rhonda and I have been married just a few months short of 20 years. She has not had a mammogram since we were married. She had one previously, but here is her response regarding mammograms before that time:
“I had one once, before I got on The Hallelujah Diet and I knew about the dangers of mammograms! I knew that could not be good for me so I never had another.”
Dr. Russell Blaylock is a nationally respected, nutritionally minded neurosurgeon, author and lecturer. In his December 2010 edition of The Blaylock Report, he revealed some surprising facts about this controversial screening method. “I am now opposed to all mammograms,” Dr. Blaylock stated. “The breast is highly sensitive to the effects of radiation. Radiation effects are cumulative, they add up from year to year.” In fact, Dr. Blaylock said that irradiating the breasts of a woman with a family history of breast cancer is likely to cause breast cancer!
Is There A Safe Means of Testing For Breast Cancer?
Since mammography has so many potentially dangerous side effects, is there a testing method that is safe? And the answer is YES.
Thermography uses an infrared camera to map the surface temperature of the breast to pick up heat signatures (inflammation) that may be caused by abnormal tissue growth. Using thermography, conditions that can lead to cancer can often be detected up to ten years in advance versus mammography.
However, the best chance of avoiding breast cancer is to change one's diet and make sure vitamin D levels are adequate. There must also be ample iodine for the thyroid as well as the breast! The 100% plant-based Hallelujah Diet, along with adequate vitamin D supplementation is the best available option to prevent not only breast cancer but all types of cancers.
What About Dental Checkups?
Rhonda does have dental checkups. She had a lot of dental and gum problems prior to adopting The Hallelujah Diet 20 years ago, but since the diet change has had no additional problems and her gums have healed wonderfully and become very pink and healthy. I’m often receiving reports of how gum problems disappear on The Hallelujah Diet. (This editor on the other hand does not have the same needs because I have had dentures for almost 20 years.)
What About Eye Exams?
Rhonda does have regular eye exams because her eyes keep changing. Before adopting The Hallelujah Diet 20 years ago she had very thick, tri-focal glasses. Since the diet change, almost every time she has an eye exam, the doctor has had to reduce the strength of her lenses. She now has very thin bi-focals.
This editor has not had an eye exam in almost 20 years. I began wearing glasses at age 28 after being on the standard American diet all my life. Between ages of 28 and 42 and before adopted The Hallelujah Diet, I had the strength of these glasses increased almost yearly. After adopting the Hallelujah Diet at age 42, I had almost a yearly decrease in the strength of my lenses until I was able to stop wearing glasses at age 65. Then two years ago, at age 75, I was able to pass my North Carolina driver's eye test without glasses; the restriction for corrective lenses on my license was removed. The restriction had been there for almost 50 years.
My responses to these questions are what my wife Rhonda and I believe and practice, and are not meant as advice for anyone other than ourselves. If you use the information without the approval of a health professional, you are prescribing for yourself, which is your constitutional right, but neither I, nor Rhonda, nor Hallelujah Acres assume any responsibility.
