Hallelujah Diet

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

Back to School—Back to Kleenex?

One of the hardest things about sending our kids back to school is keeping them healthy. Once school starts back the doctor visits and sick days don’t seem to be far behind. Its amazing, they seem to stay healthy throughout the summer but come September 1st when they’re back into contact with all the other kids things seem to change.

As much as we tell them to wash their hands before they eat, and as often as they hear that they should keep their fingers away from their face, eyes and mouth, it doesn’t seem to be long before we feel their warm little foreheads, their noses start to run and the long chain of colds, coughs and sniffles begin.

Most parents seem to know that consuming any refined sugar will reduce their little one’s immune system. So, the cupcakes for Johnny’s birthday and the wrapped candy from the teacher to celebrate a correct answer will not only appear as a reward, but will also decrease the immune system and increase the child’s likelihood of “catching” a bug. Since your control doesn’t reach that far into the classroom, the best you can do for your child is to maintain a high nutrient based diet for them when they are with you, ensure they are drinking plenty of nutrient rich fluids as well as pure water, and carefully supplement their diet through those long months where fresh air is harder to find than indoor air.

Probiotics In Dentistry

Traditionally used for digestive health, probiotics are finding a new niche in your dentist’s chair.

Oral probiotics can help control disease carrying pathogens. Gingivitis, for example, is the result of pathogens attacking small food particles and good probiotics help reduce the growth of those pathogens.

In fact, good probiotics may help to reduce the risk of everything from gingivitis to bad breath.

Studies on the role of probiotics in dentistry as far back as 2005 have said that “because of the increasing global problem with antimicrobial drug resistance, the concept of probiotic therapy … merits further research.”

And research is finding that good probiotics could indeed lead to strategies for cavity protection and control “due to their inhibitory action against cariogenic streptococci (cavity-causing bacteria)” and that “daily intake of probiotic supplements may control common oral and dental infections.”

The key is the ability of probiotic supplements to regulate pH levels in the mouth, which can inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria. This can help prevent plaque buildup, which often leads to gingivitis and other problems. FULL POST

Robin Williams—Theories on Why

There are many theories going around today about what caused Robin Williams to take his life. One such theory is that he had a mental illness. This is a new “disease” of today much like “obesity” and “inflammation” have become new “diseases.”

The problem with the theory of “mental illness” is that it doesn’t get to the root of the problem. When one has been diagnosed as having a “mental illness”, then the next step is to prescribe a medication to assist that person in staying mentally balanced without experiencing too many emotional or mental swings that can be upsetting to the person, their family and society at large. Sadly, the prescriptions are a continuous process because they don’t help the person long term. Rather, they mask the symptoms but since the root problem has never been diagnosed, the “mental illness” can never be reversed.

Another theory that we have heard is that Robin Williams must not have had a strong relationship with Jesus Christ. First, that appears to be a judgment; one that cannot be validated for certain, and even then—it is still a judgment. No one else can ever know any other’s true personal relationships with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Sadly, these types of comments actually can create a barrier for people to want to know Jesus rather than encourage them to. We often create statements such as these because we are at a loss for an answer and it is easy to believe that a stronger relationship with our Lord can make things right. FULL POST

Great News for Your Gluten Free Diet?

Are you dealing with diarrhea, bloating, cramping, abdominal pain and constipation or “foggy mind,” depression and ADHD-like behavior or anemia, joint pain, osteoporosis, or leg numbness? Science is now realizing that for many people, these symptoms may point to gluten sensitivity. The only way to tell if you are sensitive is to go on a gluten free diet and eat only gluten free foods for a period of time to see if your symptoms improve. Doing this just got a lot easier.

Starting this week, “gluten-free” labels on packaged foods have real meaning. Until now, the term “gluten-free” had not been regulated, and manufacturers made their own decisions about what it means.

This new requirement is especially important for people who suffer from celiac disease and don’t absorb nutrients well. They can get sick from the gluten found in wheat and other cereal grains.

Under a rule announced by the FDA a year ago, food manufacturers had until Tuesday of this week to ensure that anything labeled gluten-free contains less than 20 parts per million of gluten – ensuring that those products are technically free of wheat, rye and barley. That amount is generally recognized by the medical community to be low enough so that most people who have celiac disease won’t get sick if they eat it. FULL POST

Study Reveals Eating More Vegetables and Fruits Lowers Risk of Dying

Advanced Superfoods

There is one positive message that all nutritionists and doctors agree upon. We can disagree about just about everything else, but this one message unites us all. Yes, just like your mother and grandma used to say, “Eat your vegetables!”

A very recent study showed that English people who ate seven or more servings of fruits and vegetables had a lower overall risk of dying, including lower risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer. Salads and vegetables were the most protective subcategory, while canned fruit actually increased the risk of death.1  Five a day is not enough. You need more, much more fresh produce to thrive in our modern world. So, we get the message, but that doesn’t always translate into bold action.

Introducing a great way to help you meet your goals of increasing your vegetable intake. Its called Advanced Superfood by the Hallelujah Diet. And it is jam-packed with 15 vegetables, cereal grass juice powder, and other superfoods. It is 100% organic. It has stuff in there you recognize (but maybe don’t eat too often)(spinach, broccoli, kale, beets, Brussels sprouts), and stuff that is off the beaten path (dandelions, moringa leaves, nopal leaves). It has superdense foods like barley grass juice powder, wheat and oat grass juice powder, alfalfa juice powder, spirulina, chlorella and dunaliella. It has sea vegetables in meaningful amounts. It has garden vegetables. It has exotic vegetables. It has lots of variety. FULL POST

Does Your Digestive Health Need A Makeover?

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) also known as Irritable Bowel Disorder (IBD) and Crohn’s Disease are painful digestive tract issues. They exhibit similar symptoms, which include persistent diarrhea, constipation, cramping and abdominal pain.

Health experts believe that faulty communication between the brain and the intestinal tract is one cause of the symptoms for IBS/IBD. In some people, this miscommunication causes abnormal muscle contractions or spasms, which often cause cramping pain. The spasms may speed the passage of stool, causing diarrhea. Or they may slow it down, causing constipation or bloating.

Many people who have IBS seem to have unusually sensitive intestines. It is unknown why their intestines are more likely to react strongly to the elements that contribute to IBS. People who have IBS may start having symptoms because of one or more factors, including:

  • Eating (though no particular foods have been linked with IBS).
  • Stress and psychological issues, such as anxiety and depression.
  • Hormonal changes, such as during the menstrual cycle.
  • Medicines, such as antibiotics.
  • An infection in the digestive tract, such as salmonella.
  • Genetics. IBS may be more likely to occur in people who have a family history of the disorder.

Scientists have also linked immune system problems to inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), including Crohn’s. Usually, cells of the immune system defend the body from harmful microbes – bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other foreign substances. The body doesn’t usually respond negatively to all microbes, however. Many microbes are helpful, especially for digestion. And so the immune system leaves them alone. FULL POST

Do you need to be Gluten Free?

Do you need to be Gluten Free?

Concern over gluten intolerance is increasing in direct proportion to the growing promotion of whole grains. As a result, people are often confused regarding the role grains should play in a healthy diet.

Creative advertising about cereals and breads containing whole grains often bombards us. The result is that along the way, the true story of grains - both good and bad - gets lost in a barrage of sensationalized hype.

While The Hallelujah Diet includes limited use of grains, is a gluten free diet beneficial or even necessary? And if there are benefits to including whole grains, what are the options for people who are gluten intolerant?

Gluten is a major protein of wheat and to a lesser degree of barley, rye, and oats. It is composed of gliadins and glutenins, with only the gliadins demonstrated to activate celiac disease.

Gluten stimulates the production of certain antibodies, which can damage the lining of the small intestine and leads to the flattening of the villi (tiny finger like projections that extend outward from the inner lining of the small intestines). Villi significantly increase the surface area of the small intestine lining, and play an important role in the absorption of digestive products. FULL POST

What Makes Superfoods Super? By Paul and Ann Malkmus

What Makes Superfoods Super? By Paul and Ann Malkmus

It seems like everywhere we turn today we see advertising about superfoods,which begs the question, what makes these foods so super? Phytonutrients are what make superfoods the powerhouse of nutrition that supercharges the body preventing and sometimes helping the body recover from sickness and disease. They are non-vitamin, non-mineral components of food that have amazing health benefits. Some facilitate our cells’ ability to communicate with one another. Some have anti-inflammatory abilities. Some help prevent mutations at the cellular level. Some prevent the proliferation of cancer cells.

Three important types of beneficial phytonutrients are polyphenols, carotenoids, and phytoestrogens.

Polyphenols act as antioxidants, have anti-inflammatory properties, and are anti-allergenic. Some foods that contain polyphenols are tea, nuts, and berries.

Carotenoids are the pigments found in red, yellow, and orange fruits and vegetables, such as tomatoes, pumpkins, carrots, apricots, mangos, and sweet potatoes. These nutrients function as antioxidants, protect against cancer, and help defy the effects of aging.

Phytoestrogens (plant estrogens) are naturally occurring chemicals found particularly in whole wheat, seeds, grains, and some vegetables and fruits. They assist the body in protection from hormone-related cancers such as prostate and breast cancers. FULL POST

How's That Medicine Working For You?

How’sThat Medicine Working For You?

Is America the most medicated nation on earth? Research shows that at least half of all Americans are taking at least one prescription drug with one in six taking three or more medications. This isn’t including any over-the-counter medicines.

  • Do people with high-blood pressure ever recover from their high-blood pressure problem by taking drugs or do they have to remain on the drugs for the rest of their life in order to control their high-blood pressure?
  • Do type-2 diabetics ever get to the place where they no longer need insulin to control their blood sugar problems?
  • Does the arthritis sufferer ever see their arthritic pain go away to where they no longer require pain medicine?
  • Does the migraine headache sufferers ever see their condition improve to the point where they no longer require pain medication?
  • Can someone on a cholesterol-lowering drug ever really keep their cholesterol lowered without taking the drug?

If a person taking drugs could get the same results that people obtain after adopting the Hallelujah Diet, it would be front-page news in tomorrow’s newspaper and the lead story on the evening news programs. With so many people experiencing these incredible results after the Hallelujah Diet let’s consider the question: FULL POST

God ‘s Original Diet --- Saving Lives and Restoring Health!

God's Original Diet

As he celebrates his 38th year cancer free, George Malkmus, 80 years old, has released a literary piece that exemplifies the pillars of health that will save lives and restore health.

In the nearly four decades that Rev. Malkmus has been studying, researching and practicing the methods that best promote wellness and prevent disease, he has learned from the best. Whether it was Bernard Jensen, Lester Roloff, Ann Wigmore, Dr. Shelton; working at the Shangri-La Health Resort where he studied and began to lecture;or later serving on panels with the likes of Dr. Neil Bernard, Dr. Joel Robbins, Dr. Russell Blaylock, John Robbins, Dr. Franscisco Contreras, T. Colin Campbell, and many, many others, Rev. Malkmus has been tenacious in his insistence the Bible has the answers to our health woes and that food can either kill you or help your body heal itself.

Rev. Malkmus’ message has been heard in nearly all parts of the world as people have now come to know the Baptist pastor as the one who proclaims from the pulpit “You Don’t Have to be Sick!” Through the years as people have started to practice his teachings, they began to send testimonies, pictures and test results as proof that the Hallelujah Diet helped them regain their health.
