Money Won’t Buy Her Time

The limousine carefully nosed into the cancer center’s circle drive. Most patients arrive by family car or a shuttle bus.

Heads turned to observe the long, white limo with darkened windows. The driver hustled to the passenger door and offered his gloved hand (seriously, a gloved hand) to the meticulously dressed woman.

I was just inside the main doors as her entourage entered. Not dallying, or looking at anyone else, the woman, who appeared to be in her mid-fifties, forged ahead to the row of elevators. There she had to wait with the rest of us. She dictated orders to a woman I assumed was her secretary. When we exited on the same floor, I suspected we’d be sharing the waiting room. The front desk fitted her with the regulation plastic ID bracelet. The medical tag contrasted starkly with her diamond-studded cuff bracelet.

She then commandeered a section of the waiting room, and soon her secretary and other staff members were making calls and conducting business. The woman waved her arms dramatically as she directed her personal orchestra—her face fixed in a permanent scowl. 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

5 Tips to Beat Diabetes

As I entered into my senior year, things in my house were getting more and more serious. Not just the, “Is he really going to graduate?” type stuff, but my parents’ health too. Before the fall semester started,my mom got word that she was a diabetic. It was a blow to my family, because we had always been the “fat but healthy” family. Then, my dad had a near death experience that left his body reeling. In a 3 month period I went from two “fat-but-healthy” parents to two parents, one having had a near death experience and both being full on, type 2 diabetics.

Diabetes prevention is as basic as eating more healthfully, becoming more physically active, and losing a few extra pounds — and it's never too late to start. If my parents had known and taken seriously the danger, we could have taken really simple steps to keep diabetes out of our lives. Here are 5 tips to prevent diabetes.

Tip 1: Lets get physical!
There are many benefits to regular activity. Exercise can help in a few key areas: 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.

The Self-Healing Body We Are Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

The Self-Healing Body  We Are Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

Medicine and drugs can never prevent sickness nor heal anyone of anything! Only the body has the power and ability to prevent sickness or heal, itself! Healing is only done by the body! All healing comes from the inside!

Another truth: The body’s ability to protect and heal itself from disease was placed into the genetic coding of Adam. This self-protecting/self-healing ability has been passed down through our genes. You and I have self-healing built into our bodies, automatically! But, we must cooperate with the body so that this built-in self-protection, or self-healing can manifest.

We Are Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;” the Bible tells us in Psalm 139:14.

No one can properly understand or appreciate the human physical body, without first acknowledging the body’s origin and designer – God! FULL POST

Juice Fast, Juice Cleanse…No Matter What you Call it, you Will Love It!

Juice Fast, Juice Cleanse…No matter what you call it, you will love it!HDiet

People everywhere are talking about juice cleanses. Drinking only vegetable juice for two or three days used to be called juice fasting and has been in existence for over 70 years. We have to agree though, going on a juice cleanse does sound more appealing than a juice fast.

In the 1930’s,Dr. Max Gerson found that daily juicing was invaluable in curing himself from debilitating migraines. Dr. Norman Walker, in the early 1900’s, who lived to be well over 100, assisted many people in restoring their health while drinking vegetable juices. Nearly 40 years ago, George Malkmus found juicing an effective way to rid himself of cancer and has spoken of the great value of juicing ever since. Although it is now called “juice cleansing”, and celebrities and their doctors are touting the benefits of this anti-aging elixir, we find it actually humorous first, in how long it has taken for people to get on the “juicing bandwagon,” and second, that many people really only see the value of juicing as an easy weight loss option.

Spiritual Foods and Nutrition Benefits of Juicing and Smoothies, Which One Is Better?

Spiritual Foods and Nutrition

How do you feel when you have missed a couple of days of your bible study, or a couple of weeks of missing church? Do you feel a little empty? Does life seem to get you down a little more quickly? Everybody knows that continuous spiritual nourishment results in a stronger relationship with our Lord.

This same principal holds true when discussing the Temple of the Holy Ghost, our bodies. If we don’t keep it nourished on a daily basis with quality food and drink, we will immediately notice it will not perform and it will slowly begin to break down.

 You wouldn’t think about skimping on the quality of your spiritual meals. We need continual feeding to grow as a child of God. We don’t want to consume meals (sermons/devotions…) that aren’t meaningful, convicting and impacting. Our spirit knows when we’ve skipped a meal.

As our body is the Temple of the Holy Ghost, we need to ensure that the physical foods we consume are also of the highest quality to help maintain a strong body – temple too.

It’s the classic, plant-based health question — which is better, blending or juicing?

The answer is… both. FULL POST

More Verdicts Keep Coming: Pornography is Bad News for the Brain

German researchers are reporting that viewing pornography actually shrinks the brain and reduces neural activity. Writing in the Journal of the American Medical Association they studied MRI scans of 64 healthy mean and discovered that the more porn they viewed, the less gray matter they found in the areas of the brain associated with reward and motivation.

There was also a correlation between more hours of porn consumption and less responsive activity in an area of the brain that normally lights up in response to sexual stimuli. This might be a connection to the argument that pornography requires more and more exposure to maintain the stimulation, pointing to its potentially addictive nature. FULL POST

4 Promising Fat Rich Foods to Add in Your Weight Loss Program

Not all healthy foods are created equally. Some foods outshine the rest when it comes to nutritional value and the impact it has on weight loss. In fact, some fats can be a great addition to a weight loss diet. If you are working to shed a few pounds, you should consider what type of healthy fat rich foods you are eating.

When you consume healthy fats, you will decrease your hunger level, regulate your blood sugar and aid in making your body reach its optimal level of functionality. People are afraid of healthy fats because of the calorie density. You can combat this by practicing portion control. When you practice portion control, these four fats will make a fantastic addition to your weight loss plan.

1. Flaxseeds


Flaxseeds are considered the superstar for an anti-aging diet, because they are rich in antioxidants, dietary fiber and unsaturated fats. Adding flaxseeds to your diet comes with many benefits. Your hunger will be curbed, your high blood pressure lowered, your clogged coronaries cleared and your potential risk of developing heart disease lowered. The omega fats in flaxseeds can also improve your brain function, boost your immune system and lower your body fat composition. FULL POST

Fall In Love With Food Again

If you are like most people, you like food. There is an abundance of foods at Birthday parties, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, New Year’s Eve, church gatherings, births, funerals, graduations, baptisms, holidays, and of course, “just because” are all great reasons to eat good food. How does your body react to the foods that you’re consuming throughout each day and on these countless “special” occasions?

Do you notice that after these great food sessions, you’re a little slower, your mind seems a bit fuzzy, or you experience some strange aches and pains?

In the news we hear more and more about the connection between disease prevention and the foods we consume. But, who wants to eat “healthy” foods if they don’t taste good? Healthy foods have the reputation of being good for you, but you believe that you have to sacrifice taste.

Doesn’t chocolate peanut butter pie, strawberry ice cream or blueberry cheesecake sound better than the so-called rabbit foods like – lettuce, carrots and greens? FULL POST
