In the last two weekly Health Tips (available here), we shared what a typical day on the Hallelujah (Maintenance) Diet looks like. Here’s just one of the responses from these Health Tips:
“Thank you so much for your detailed information on what you and Rhonda do and take from morning to bed time.” ~ Meta P.In this week’s Health Tip, we’re going to talk about the Hallelujah (Recovery) Diet, a diet designed specifically for those who need to more aggressively support their body’s self-healing efforts when dealing with a life-threatening physical problem, such as cancer. It is basically the same as the “Maintenance Diet” with some upgrades. First, we will deal with the theory behind The Recovery Diet, and the reason it is more intense than the basic Maintenance Diet.
The Healthy Cell ConceptIn order to understand how the Recovery Diet works, we need to understand what will be happening at the cellular level of the body when we apply the principles that led to the creation of this self-healing system. Without an understanding of what is happening at the cellular level we will not be able to appreciate the amazing power of the nutrients found in the right foods and juices! As a basis for understanding, I want to remind you of what we learned in earlier Health Tips: “That our body is a living organism comprised of living cells that were designed by God to be nourished with living foods (raw plant sourced foods). All cooked foods are dead foods and thus incapable of properly nourishing the living organisms our body is made of.” Our body's living cells are constantly in the process of dying and replacing themselves over varying amounts of time. Many blood cells replace daily; taste buds take about two weeks to replace; we replace the entire outer layer of skin in about four weeks; and it takes about a year to replace our bone structure. In other words, our body is constantly in the process of regeneration and renewal — 300 million cells die and replace every minute of every day! That’s how God made us! As old cells die and are replaced with new cells, the quality of the new cell replacing the old cell is totally dependent on the building materials (nutrients) we provide those cells as they die and replace. That places us in almost complete control of the quality of these new cells. In other words: What we eat today will determine our body’s composition and health tomorrow!
The Secret to Proper Cell NourishmentHere at Hallelujah Acres we have learned that anything other than living plant sourced foods are inferior building materials and fail to provide the body’s cells with the nutrients the body needs to replace the dying cells with superior cells. There are a few exceptions where nutrients are more available to the body in cooked form. So here is the secret... Superior quality building materials coming from raw plant sourced foods, especially in the form of vegetable juices, green smoothies and blended salads, provide the quality nutrients the body will use to produce a new cell of superior quality to the cell it is replacing! On the flip side, anything coming from a food sources found outside of the garden — like animal flesh, dairy, refined sugar, and grains, or that are cooked (with few exceptions) — provides the cells with inferior building materials thus producing a cell that is inferior to the one it is replacing! God has blessed each of us with an immune system designed by God to protect us from germs, viruses, bacteria, and even cancer. But when our immune system has been weakened by failing to keep the immune system strong with good nutrition so that it can protect us as God designed, a weakened immune system allows disease and cancer to get a foothold and grow. Rather than doing further damage to the immune system than has already been done prior to the cancer discovery due to poor diet and lifestyle, and then further weakening the immune system with toxic drugs and burning radiation, let’s instead provide the body with the nutrients it needs to rebuild the immune system so that our cells have available the nutrients needed in order to rebuild the immune system and thus heal us. That is the whole approach of the Hallelujah Acres Recovery Diet. First, the Recovery Diet does the body “no harm” by systematically removing those things that hinder the body’s ability to heal itself, while at the same time providing the body the very best nutrients it needs to have the very best chance of ridding itself of disease, using its own self-healing mechanism, built-in by God. Remember, however, that the Hallelujah “Recovery Diet” I am about to share has no inherent ability to heal anyone of anything (only the body itself has that ability). What the Recovery Diet does is enhance the body’s self-healing abilities by aggressively providing the resources needed to rebuild the immune system. As the immune system is strengthened and restored to its God given ability to heal with these resources, the strengthened immune system then has the ability to seek out and destroy cancer cells all by itself without any help from cell destroying modalities such as chemotherapy and radiation that further suppress the immune system.
The Hallelujah Recovery Diet ExplainedThe Recovery Diet is a diet designed especially for those who need more aggressive nutritional support of the immune system than the Hallelujah Maintenance Diet provides. The Recovery Diet, most importantly, does not violate the Hippocratic Oath of “Do the body no harm” (which cannot be said of toxic medical modalities). Simultaneously, it provides the body with the nutrients needed to rebuild the immune system so that the body has the best chance of restoring its integrity at the cellular level.
Knowledge Is PowerBefore we can consider the Recovery Diet in more detail we must lay some foundational truths that must be considered if we are going to have the best opportunity of recover. Here is the first prerequisite: If a person is dealing with, or has a friend or loved one who is dealing with a life-threatening situation such as cancer, I would strongly urge them to read last week’s Health Tip in order to understand how various modalities affect the cells of their body at the cellular level either positively or negatively. The understanding of what is happening at the cellular level of the body is imperative no matter what modalities a person chooses in dealing with any physical breakdown, but especially when dealing with cancer. Knowledge is power and knowledge places a person in much greater control of their situation. All too often, people dealing with cancer feel frightened and helpless when they get their diagnosis. The fear and lack of knowledge makes them turn themselves over to the traditional medical community and just do whatever their doctor’s say, not knowing the ramifications of that decision. The right to make a decision about his or her health care should always be retained by the suffering individual. However friends and loved ones of the person dealing with cancer also need knowledge because in their possible ignorance, they may encourage a cancer victim to go the traditional medical route to the cancer victim’s detriment. Before a person submits to chemotherapy or radiation, they, along with friends and loved ones, should make themselves fully aware of how these medical modalities will affect the body of the suffering individual at the cellular level. They need to determine whether a particular modality strengthens the immune system so that the body can better fight and win the battle... or whether it further weakens an already compromised immune system, making it more difficult for the body to win the battle. Researchers at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle made a completely unexpected finding while seeking to explain why cancer cells are so resilient inside the human body while easy to kill in the lab:
Cancer-fighting chemotherapy can cause damage to healthy cells, triggering them to secrete a protein that sustains tumor growth and resistance to further treatment.The Bible warns: “Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” It is imperative, therefore, that before a person accepts any treatment for cancer, or any other physical problem for that matter, they should thoroughly research the prescribed treatment in order to gain sufficient knowledge so that they can better understand its ramifications and make an informed decision. For those dealing with cancer, I highly recommend you obtain the DVD titled “Healing Cancer from the Inside Out” available here. In next week’s Health Tip we will discuss the “Recovery” Hallelujah Diet in detail – including a daily schedule and suggested supplements, along with much more helpful information. Next week, the good Lord willing and if the creeks don’t rise too high we will return with another exciting issue of the Hallelujah Health Tip. Trust you will join us and that you will share these Health Tips with friends and loved ones.
