I am 43 years old. Overweight (255 lbs., 5'11), and was taking two medications a day for high blood pressure, a diuretic, potassium to offset the diuretic, one anti-depressant, one medication for my acid reflux, and one to treat high cholesterol.

Over the past 15 years, I have had numerous bladder infections and prostatitis. When I started on the Hallelujah Diet, November 26,2000, I decided, without my doctor's consultation, to discontinue all my medications. This may have been very hazardous and foolish, however, that's what I did. Very early in the morning on December 11th , I awoke in a panic as my bladder was emptying in bed. Very humiliating and scary, to say the least. I took the day off and went to the Doc's. I had lost 15 pounds since starting on the diet and they were amazed. My blood pressure was the best it had been in 12 years and they were additionally amazed when I told them that I had discontinued all my medications.

I described what I was doing with the diet and the doctor took me off all medications except the cholesterol medication. He said that since my body was apparently healing itself he could assume that there was an abundance of cholesterol being dispelled into my bloodstream and that the medication would help my body dispense with the excess. He said that he will have some blood work done on me soon and he anticipates that I will be off that medication also in a month or two, if not sooner. About wetting the bed, he said that he thinks that my body was having a 'healing crisis' and that things are starting to work correctly that had not been for a long time. They did all the tests regarding my bladder and found nothing to be concerned about

When I started on the Hallelujah Diet, I experienced headaches for the first three to four days, but I have had no headaches whatsoever since! Nor have I been hungry! I have no sugar cravings (I used to drink 3-6 Cokes a day)! Have had no need for heartburn medicine, whereas I used to eat Rolaids everyday, along with my acid-reflux medicine! I no longer need coffee as I have more energy than I can ever remember having! My mind is clear and I can think better than I have ever been able to! Everyone at work is noticing the changes. My family is amazed I am finally showing discipline in my diet. My wife and sister say that they are going to make the lifestyle change to the Hallelujah Diet after New Years! I cannot tell you how grateful I am that a pastor friend pointed me to your Web site!
