It is simple truth that there is not a doctor in the entire world capable of healing anyone of anything, nor is there a drug, radiation or surgery that can heal anyone of anything. And I’ll go a step further. There is not a vitamin or mineral supplement, herbal compound, or homeopathic concoction that can heal anyone of anything. There is not even a food or glass of fresh vegetable juice capable of healing anyone of anything. The fact is that there is nothing that can be done to the outside of the body or placed into the body that can heal anyone of anything!
Man has been searching for many, many years, spending vast sums of money, seeking a cure for his physical ills. In spite of all these efforts and huge expenditures, mankind is growing increasingly sicker. Is there not something wrong with this picture? Sadly, man will never find the solution to these physical ills until he realizes that the only healing that can ever take place within the body is the self-healing that God programmed into it. And that self-healing can only occur when conditions conducive to healing are brought about within the body that will make it possible for the body to do what God designed it to do. As we learn more about this incredible physical body temple God has so graciously provided each of us and its built in self-healing abilities, how can we fail to exclaim words similar to those spoken by the Psalmist :
"I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and WONDERFULLY MADE . . ." ~ Psalm 139:14
The Design of Stem Cells
God designed our physical bodies to produce stem cells in the bone marrow — and they have the ability to become any other cell in the body! In other words, a stem cell can become a neuron, a liver cell, a brain cell, a hair or nail cell, a blood cell, an immune system cell, etc. Those who have been following the news in recent years know that there has been a lot of talk about stem cells as well as great controversy over the use of certain types of stem cells. Some of that controversy has revolved around the ethical issues involved in the use of stem cells coming from human embryos. Researchers are saying that if they can just move beyond the ethical issues, and gain access to these embryonic stem cells, they can at last have the raw materials they say can result in the healing of many serious diseases and physical problems that in the past were thought beyond repair. Most likely, the debate will continue to rage on for many more years regarding the use of these embryonic stem cells.
Sadly, the scientific and medical communities are failing to acknowledge (or perhaps realize) that there is no need for the use of embryonic stem cells or any other type of stem cell coming from an outside source. What is not being disclosed for political reasons, or perhaps because it is not even understood, is that within each of our physical bodies, we are already capable of producing the stem cells needed for repair — IF we nourish the body with the living (raw) plant sourced foods God designed our body to be nourished with. If our God-made physical bodies are provided the nutrients found in God’s original, 100% plant-based diet (Genesis 1:29), the body is capable of producing within its own bone marrow all the stem cells necessary to repair almost anything that ever breaks down within the body. When the body receives proper nutrients, it will automatically produce everything necessary to heal itself of almost anything — without any help from the scientific community, doctors, or drugs. In other words, all healing is self-healing and it was placed in the human body by our Creator.
All Healing Is Self-Healing
When God created that first human, Adam and then Eve, He placed within their genetic makeup all that was necessary for a person to automatically heal from almost any physical problem that manifests. Visually, we see the body’s self healing ability performed before our very eyes when the skin is broken. First the bleeding to cleanse the wound, then a scab forms to protect the wound while the body knits the skin back together. We see the same self-healing ability when a bone is broken. The doctor can set the bones in alignment, but it is the body that knits the bones back together. The same self-healing ability within Adam and Eve has been passed down through the ages into your body! The human body is a powerful self-healing organism. How I wish that the medical and scientific communities would realize this; when it comes to disease, most of their efforts are counterproductive. Drugs, radiation, surgeries, and other medical interventions only exacerbate the problem and in most instances make it more difficult for the body to do what God designed it to do. Of course, there are times when the body needs help to restore itself to wholeness, such as accidents. I wholeheartedly agree that, in these situations, the medical community excels. But even then, it is the body itself that ultimately does the healing.
Early Research With Stem Cells
On February 19, 2003, a remarkable article in The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) reported research from Johns Hopkins Medical School. For the first time, researchers observed the ability of stem cells to cross the blood brain barrier to become neurons in the brain. This is a significant finding because neurons are the most highly advanced functional cells in the body, and because neurons control all of the brain and muscle functions. This is a revolutionary discovery especially with regard to the potential for the body to repair and regenerate the human brain. Early research on glyconutrients (necessary sugars) suggests that by adding glyconutrients to the human diet, there is an increase in production of the bone marrow's ability to produce stem cells. Until the JAMA article, the research team had not been able to explain how adults with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, and children with cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, and autism were experiencing restoration of brain function with the addition of glyconutrients and other micronutrients in their diet. Prior to this knowledge, science had no way to explain how many individuals with seemingly permanent brain injuries from strokes, trauma, or neurodegenerative disorders could heal and regain lost central nervous system function from problems they had previously thought were beyond repair. These findings can revolutionize our understanding not only of how physical healing takes place within the body, but how, when provided with the proper nutrients, the body is capable of even restoring brain function — all without drugs or other interference or intervention by man. With this knowledge it makes sense why, in 2001, I had such a remarkable and rapid recovery following the hemorrhagic stroke I experienced at the age of 67. The neurologist said he had never before seen such rapid and complete healing from a hemorrhagic stroke. For years, I have wondered how exactly The Hallelujah Diet provided the conditions necessary for people to recover from almost any and every physical and even psychological problem. Now I know the answer!
Have Faith in Your Earthly Body
In a healthy body (one that is being properly nourished), the body has the building materials it needs to repair almost any area that is not functioning at peak performance — even producing stem cells in the bone marrow to be carried by the blood to every part of the body to fix and repair broken down areas! The physical body of a person on The Hallelujah Diet, because it provides the body with the nutrients it needs, keeps the body in such a high state of health that it is capable of restoring health to most every malfunctioning part.
Hallelujah Acres teaches health from a Biblical perspective. When Rhonda and I started Hallelujah Acres in 1992, criticism came from the Christian community because The Hallelujah Diet excluded all animal source foods which they said God gave mankind permission to consume in Genesis 9:3. However, as people began to realize more and more that those who were adopting The Hallelujah Diet were recovering from almost every physical and psychological problem they had been experiencing, criticism began to subside. Are you consuming a diet that keeps those stem cells flowing from your bone marrow so that your body has the wherewithal to fix almost anything that goes wrong in your body? It’s almost all in your diet and lifestyle, my friend — and that is something most of us have control over. Amen!
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 Acres Health Tip. Trust you will join us and that you will share these Health Tips with friends and loved ones.
