I was diagnosed with Sarcoidosis (an auto-immune disease) in March 1999. The disease was confined to my skin and at the time i had 13 painful, throbbing tumors, throughout my body. I had no energy to care for my 3 children or to work my 40-hour workweek job. After much prayer, research, and crying out to God for healing, I refused the medical route of steroid treatments. The Lord led me to
book 'Why Christians Get Sick' and after reading it, my husband and I felt this was God's plan for my healing � not realizing at the time that our whole family would experience healing in some area as a result. My husband and I, in total agreement, and as a family, immediately adopted The Hallelujah Diet. We threw out all indications of dead food and medications from our home, and went totally raw. We didn't even eat out for that first year and a half after changing our diet and lifestyle. A salad out is still a real treat for our family.
Within a few months of making the diet change, all my tumors left, along with 38 pounds. When I began The Hallelujah Diet, I was 5'8" tall and weighed 169 pounds, and within 4 months time, my weight was down to 131 pounds. that was over 5-years ago when I was 45-years-old. Today I am 51-years-old, and for the first time in my life have been able to maintain my weight, something I have never before been able to do.
My husband Dennis was a diabetic when we made the diet change, and weighed in at 260 pounds at 6'4" tall. In his first few months on The Hallelujah Diet, he lost 42 pounds. His cholesterol levels dropped from 210 TO 150 in just a short time, he was no longer considered diabetic when his blood-sugar readings dropped from 160 to 90.
We had three children still at home when we made the diet change. They all lost weight as well, although we did not record their weight when we started The Hallelujah Diet. But when we look at pictures of them before we began the diet, we can see a big difference. Before adopting The Hallelujah Diet, our 11-year-old son had Asthma really bad, but since the diet and lifestyle change, he has not seen a doctor in over 5-years, but then none of us have!
Since making the diet change, my husband and I have experienced no more sinus headaches, and my husband is able to stand longer periods of time without intense pain (my husband previously had very bad varicose veins in his legs). I no longer suffer from the hip, knee and joint pain that I previously had, and all the allergies that were such a big part of my life for so many years are gone! my energy has definitely increased, and to our surprise, people say that they cannot believe we have 6 grandchildren.
We continue to pray for the Lord to make a way for my husband and I to be able to come to the Health Ministers training there at Hallelujah Acres. We continue to praise God for His healing in our bodies through something as simple as a diet and lifestyle change. It is a way of life for us now, and we can't imagine ever going back to the Standard American Diet (SAD) lifestyle. Thank you Dr. Malkmus for helping us get a revelation of these physical principles that Christians should have been applying in their lives all along.
