Health Nodes Introduction

February 29, 2008

“What the heck are Health Nodes?” you ask. I got this idea from a great book I just finished called “Millionaire Mind” by T. Harv Eker. He does an amazing job of helping one to see how success in anything can be achieved by simply changing the way you think. He focuses on Rich people and how thinking like rich people can open your eyes to new possibilities. So that got me thinking about success in the health arena.

I have struggled with sharing information about health and my lifestyle because it seems not to be the most popular way of eating or living. I have noticed that people that will accept such a message are those who want to hear it. Those who want excellence in their lives in all areas. Those who are willing to sacrifice the pleasure of the moment for the greater purpose.

Therefore, I am going to devote some time in my blogs to writing what I call Health Nodes. They will share the differences about how healthy people think compared to unhealthy. Hopefully, by reading these, you will see where you sit in this realm and open your mind to new possibilities of success.

We are all programmed in a certain way from how we were raised and what we experienced growing up. From this programming comes the way we make choices to be or not to be healthy. These, like files in computer, are the nodes that make up our health blueprint . So by addressing the wrong type of nodes we can then change the programming of our mind so that we can set ourselves up for a failure-free healthy lifestyle. Stay tuned for the first health node.

: It has just all-around been an EXCITING experience!

February 27, 2008

Dr. Malkmus, After picking up your book, God’s Way to Ultimate Health, in our local Health Food store in late September, my husband and I made the commitment to do a 90- day trial. As skeptical as I was, we made the diet change October 1, 2007. After only one month on the diet, between the two of us, here is what we wrote down as the changes we noticed: SLEEP LIKE A BABY (so sound and refreshing); MORE ENERGY; LOSS OF JOINT PAIN IN THUMB, KNEE, SHOULDERS, HANDS NO LONGER STIFF OR NUMB IN THE MORNING; SKIN SOFTER; BREAST LUMPS HAD DISAPPEARED; ECZEMA GONE; SOME WEIGHT LOSS; more fun with food variety, taste, and learning new recipes. It has just all-around been an EXCITING experience! Looking forward to what additional improvements we will notice as we continue the diet in 2008.

My Journey

February 27, 2008

The other day I shared the story of the founder of Hallelujah Acres. I hope you enjoyed reading about his story. There are so many similar stories that come into H.Acres that are inspiring and uplifting. He has affected many lives with his teachings about health and I want to share about mine.

After reading a book called “Why Christian’s Get Sick”, I was challenged to make some changes in my diet and lifestyle. I noticed more improvement than any other diet change I had ever tried before. A few months later I looked at the back of the book to order some recipe books and realized that H. Acres was located in my wife’s hometown. So we went down to the store and bought a few things. I noticed that there was a health seminar going on. I inquired and the next week we went and were astonished at the amazing information being shared. We left for a while and then came back and trained to be Health Ministers of H. Acres.

This has definitely been one of the most remarkable adventures of my life. I have grown a passion to help those who are sick and share information about unbelievable ways of living that can help you to live every day feeling great. I encourage you to email me and say hi so I can share my wealth of information with you

Introducing Hallelujiah Acres (www.hacres.com)

February 24, 2008

I came across Hallelujah Acres almost four years ago after reading a book that changed my life. It is was written by author and founder of the company, George Malkumus. Through his experience he has learned much about nutrition and has devoted his life to sharing the message. I want to write a few blogs about this great man. Here is an excerpt from his latest health tip (email me if you would like to be sent this free weekly email).

“And sure-enough, in 1976, at the age of 42, I was told I had colon cancer, and in 2001, at age 67, suffered a stroke. In 1976, when I was told I had colon cancer, rather
than going the medical route my mom had gone before me for her cancer with devastating results, I opted for “The Hallelujah Diet”. Within one year of making the diet
change, my cancer was gone and has remained gone for 32- years.

I recommend reading the rest of his story… please email me if you are interested.

Testimony Time: Chris survives Disease

February 23, 2008

“My name is Chris and I live in Melbourne, Victoria,
Australia. Six years ago I was diagnosed with Non Hodgkin’s
Lymphoma, which had obstructed both urethras of my kidneys
and caused much damage – the right one was barely
functioning. Stents were inserted for 3 months. After a
course of C.H.O.P. chemotherapy, I had expected to be
somewhat improved, however I never recovered. After a few
months as I was crying out to God for my ‘way of escape’,
three people mentioned to me about the Hallelujah Diet®. I
read some material and I admit I was extremely skeptical
but could not shake the idea that this was indeed God’s way
of escape for me. I began the diet in November 2001. Today
I am well and strong – back into fulltime work and so
enjoying my life. Was it easy? NO! I had many times of
wanting to quit but as the months passed, I certainly
reaped the benefits of excellent eating and will continue
to do so.

Testimony Time: Kathy’s off 11 meds now!

February 23, 2008

From Sharpsville, Indiana, Kathy writes: “I am so thankful
for this Hallelujah Diet way of nurturing my physical body.
It has not always been easy, but the benefits have been
very rewarding! Since adopting the Hallelujah Diet, I am
now off all of the 11-different medicines I was taking, and
I no longer suffer with arthritis, obesity, esophageal
reflux, irritable bowel syndrome, high blood cholesterol or
high blood pressure. Thank God, I am cured of all these
medical problems!”

Does serotonin affect spirituality?

February 21, 2008

Antidepressants work by increasing levels of the
neurotransmitter serotonin. But 50% of the serotonin is
metabolized by the pineal gland. What is the pineal gland?
It is the master gland of the body known as the “seat of
the soul” or our connection to higher, spiritual thoughts.
In Eastern religions it is known as the Third Eye and is
located right in the center of the brain.

The question we need to ask is that if the Pineal gland is
overloaded with large amounts of serotonin produced by
these drugs, does it interfere with that spiritual
connection? According to patients using these drugs it
does! They continually report that they can no longer feel
God. One perfect example that comes to mind is that of
Elizabeth Bush, the 14-year-old girl who shot her best
friend at the private Catholic school they attended.

Elizabeth’s hero in life was Mother Theresa. Elizabeth
planned to devote her life to God and become a nun. So how
did she go from that point to a charge of attempted murder
almost overnight? I called her attorney when this happened
and told him what happened was likely the result of the use
of one of these antidepressants. He did not show much
interest, but said he would check. Then the following week
Elizabeth was interviewed on 20/20 where she made the
statement that she could “no longer feel God anymore

Problem with getting off Antidepressants

February 21, 2008

As people begin to see how they have been lied to about
the safety and effectiveness of these drugs and attempt to
come off the drugs, what will the end result be? Kim Crespi, who lives near Charlotte, NC learned of antidepressant withdrawal all too painfully on January 20,
2006 when her husband David, a good strong Christian and
wonderful husband and father, who was also a vice president
of the bank, stabbed their twin four year old daughters to
death.

David was in abrupt withdrawal from Paxil and had
just started taking Prozac. He and Kim were not aware that
the FDA had just warned the year before that any abrupt
change in dose of an antidepressant, whether going up or
down (he had just done both), can produce suicide,
hostility, or psychosis – generally a manic psychosis
leading to a diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder. Is it any
wonder that the diagnosis of Bipolar has increased by 4000%
over a recent 10 year period when it was basically unheard
of before SSRI antidepressants?
