I first heard of The Hallelujah Diet from a friend in 1998. My late husband had just been diagnosed with Non-hodgkins lymphoma. He would not do it. I forgot how wonderful I felt at that time. Taking care of him and the 2 children left at home, I gradually went back to my old, unhealthy habits. I have since been diagnosed with several ilnesses and disorders and taking numerous drugs.
I recently signed up for the 60 Day Challenge. I chose the gradual approach. I was afraid to detox too quickly because of all the problems. They include Lupus, hypo thyroidism, RA, fibromyalgia, scoliosis, osteo arthritis, osteoporosis, sciatitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar faciitis, IBS, incontinence, insomnia, headaches, ulcers,and mental issues, I think that's all.
As you can imagine, I had to quit my job and apply for disability. Depression set in. Due to pain issues, I have even been unable to exercise except for some stretching. I'm noticing little changes, even though I chose not to go cold turkey. I have more energy & I'm walking again also using small hand weights. I've lost 6 lbs. My swollen joints are less inflamed. I had lost the use of my right thumb entirely. I'm sleeping better & have cut my trazadone RX in half. I stopped the prilosec and all pain medications. I also cut my plaquenil dose in half. Imagine if I had gone "whole hog."
God Bless you all and the ministry. I'm 60 years young this year and for the first time in many years, I look forward to many more!
