The Hallelujah Diet System is the antidote to the guilt and sickness often caused by what we call the Standard American Diet or SAD.

Have you ever started something but just couldn’t bring yourself to finishing it?
You start strong. You’re inspired, highly motivated, eager and with no interest in stopping.
Maybe you will start eating better, you will drink less coffee, you will begin an exercise program, you will start reading your Bible every day, you won’t lose your temper with your children, you will take deep breaths before speaking. You know the list.
But, then what happens? It gets hard, life gets in the way, you lose interest, something else more exciting comes along…the excuses are endless.
If we are honest, we are all guilty of having great intentions and not following through with nearly all of them. Then, the guilt comes and we no longer ever want to try to do something new again for fear we won’t complete it and then feel the guilt again.
This vicious cycle is not only useless, but it can severely damage our chances for self-improvement. We are not in this world as a perfect person and we will not leave this world perfect either. The only perfect person that walked this earth is waiting for us to turn to Him and ask for His help in getting us to a better place while we are still living. FULL POST

Why should you drink alkaline water? The answer is complex, but we’ll explain the key components here (and offer a very simple way to get it in your hands—without buying expensive pre-packaged bottles or gadgets).
First things first: What we mean when we say “alkaline water”
This concept is widely misunderstood, yet when it comes to drinking water it’s one of the most imperative.
To be in great health, our bodies need to be a touch alkaline, with a pH between about 7.3 and 7.45. (Note the pH scale ranges from 1 to 14—7 is neutral, anything lower is acidic and anything higher is alkaline.)
The problem is, with the Standard American Diet (SAD), our bodies become acidic with foods like dairy, sugar, coffee and meat. This unbalanced acidity causes major health issues like inflammation, digestive problems and disease. Even if you’re not on the SAD and eating mostly raw, plant-based foods (good for you!), you can’t just drink any water for maximum health. Here’s why:
To help neutralize the acidity, you need to consume water with high alkalinity—not necessarily water with just a high pH (alkaline). The difference lies here: The pH is simply the measurement of how alkaline a substance is. On the other hand, alkalinity is the water’s ability to withstand changes in pH levels, preventing it from becoming more acidic. This is called the “buffering capacity.” It is this buffering capacity that we need to measure when we consider drinking water because it is what tackles acidity. FULL POST

Several weeks ago I shared a message titled “What Causes Large Breasts, Big Kids, and Homosexuality?” which drew a lot of feedback:
“Thank you George for an excellent article and your no-nonsense facts on homosexuality . . . . God bless you and thank you again for exposing the truth.”
“This article serves to enlighten us further regarding our children and what could be a very strong contributing factor in homosexuality.”
“Regarding homosexuality – Look up the Pottinger’s cats study if you aren’t familiar with the research. It came to some amazing conclusions. Homosexuality among the cats is one of the things he saw after a few generations of eating processed food. How many generations are we into now with our progeny living off of fake food? Something serious to think about! And convicting!”

It really is unavoidable. Your child’s recital lasts longer than you expected and you had to go there straight from work. So, dinner doesn’t get on the table to be eaten until nearly 8:30 pm. Everyone is tired, and you just can’t wait to get the kitchen cleaned up and go to bed. Sound familiar? It seems that our fast paced life no longer allows us to eat our final evening meal early in the evening anymore. If it isn’t a late meeting or longer work hours, then it is likely shopping or exercise class.
How do you sleep after you have eaten too late? Do you wake up in the middle of the night with acid reflux or a stomachache?
Eating late affects the body in a different way than eating a larger meal at a different time of the day. Calories that are consumed at night are usually not processed as efficiently as those during the day.
Unless you work the night shift, most people’s activities wind down as the day does. Settling in after dinner isn’t uncommon. Unfortunately, if we lie down after a meal, it can be a strain and lead to a feeling of lethargy in the morning. Disrupted sleep is also common when the body is working hard to digest what was eaten recently. But that isn’t even the worst of it. FULL POST

Homeostasis: “the tendency toward a relatively stable equilibrium between interdependent elements.” Our amazing bodies were built to achieve this beautiful balance, yet we live in an environment replete with pollutants, pesticides, heavy metals, cancer-triggering chemicals and a host of other toxins that breed inside and outside our bodies, disrupting our natural harmony and impeding our systems from working at their full potential. This includes our detoxification system.
With a clean, raw, plant-based diet, you empower your body to harness its innate ability to detoxify itself, using its complex systems and mechanisms to remove waste, toxins, excess hormones and other unwanted substances that cause both short- and long-term health issues.
Even with a consistently healthy diet, we are more and more beleaguered by an overwhelming amount of toxin sources that accumulate over time and slow down our natural detoxification systems, causing a congestion of toxins that get stored in our cells and tissues. FULL POST

In last week’s Health Tip we began a series sharing how Hallelujah Acres has been FIRST in so many areas: FIRST to promote God’s Genesis 1:29 diet; FIRST Christian Ministry to show a concern for the health of the Christian community; and FIRST to publish a Christian magazine emphasizing healthy living.
In this Health Tip we want to continue our journey of “FIRSTS” for Hallelujah Acres:
On February 12th 1992, Hallelujah Acres had its beginning when Rev. George and Rhonda Malkmus opened an 11-foot wide store front on Main Street in Rogersville, Tennessee.
In that tiny restaurant and health food store, they began serving vegan foods and proclaiming a health message to the Christian community: “You Don’t Have to be Sick”, and if you are already sick, “How to Eliminate Sickness” through a simple diet and lifestyle change called “The Hallelujah Diet”, a diet based on God’s Original Diet as recorded in Genesis 1:29.

We’re all about maximum nutrition at the Malkmus household believing we can never get too much nutrition. Since “Leafy Greens” are the No. 1 food anyone can eat to improve their health we thought we should highlight our favorites. These greens not only have amazing nutritional profiles full of vitamins, minerals and other phyto-nutrients but they have few calories and lots of fiber – that’s right, they help keep our pipes cleaned out! OK, maybe a little too personal there but you know what we mean if you already consume a lot of these glorious greens. Even with all the known health benefits like protection from heart disease, diabetes, and perhaps even cancer, most Americans are not eating as many leafy green vegetables each day as they need. Read on and you’ll be encouraged to include more green leafy greens into your daily food preparation. FULL POST

Cold and flu season is here, so it’s time to take stock of what you put in your body; take diligent care of what you do with your body; and take note of your environment—so you can defend yourself from these prevalent and ever-contagious viruses head on.
Studies have shown that it’s your immune system’s response to a virus—not the virus itself—that causes the common, unpleasant cold and flu symptoms such as a sore throat, runny nose and fever. So especially during the cold and flu season, nurture and care for your immune system. It is your protective shield and your best weapon against the cold and the flu. Read on to learn more about how to boost your immune system and the actionable steps you can take.
Our immune system is exactly that—a system. It is not a single identifiable entity. It’s a complex system of cells and organs that work together to reinforce each other and defend your body from infection and disease by fighting off bacteria, viruses, parasites, fungi and other pathogens. Your immune system even works as you sleep and is vital for your health, well-being and mere existence. FULL POST

In this Health Tip we begin a series of articles sharing how Hallelujah Acres has been FIRST in many areas. To begin with, we were the FIRST to promote God’s Original Genesis 1:29 diet, and the FIRST Christian ministry to show a concern for the health of the Christian community. Trust you will enjoy the journey.
On February 12, 1992 (over 22 years ago) Hallelujah Acres had its beginning in an 11-foot-wide storefront on Main Street in Rogersville, Tennessee. On this same date we began encouraging the Christian Community, as well as anyone else who would listen, to return to nourishing their bodies with the garden foods God told Adam to consume in Genesis 1:29. Here is what God told Adam he should eat in order to properly nourish and sustain the life of the physical body God had just created for him:
“AND GOD SAID, Behold I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.”~ Genesis 1:29 FULL POST

They have loud, juicy sounding burps; they place their fingers in the most disgusting places searching for some hard to reach item (in their noses); and they create wind at some of the most inopportune times!
Other strange annoyances are a constant clearing of the throat, spitting, chronic cough, body odor, saliva that stays at the corners of their mouths, large white balls of mucous forming in the inner corners of their eyes. Ever notice someone with so much white powder on their shoulders, you could have sworn they just came in from a snow storm? (Dandruff, really)
Sometimes we can’t really understand our bodies or why they do some of these strange things. However, it is entirely possible that a truly healthy body can easily eliminate strange phenomenon such as those listed above. FULL POST
