"I have cancer. What diet changes should I make"...
"My niece has diabetes, what should I tell her to do"...
"Will Barleygreen ™ help my arthritis?"
Answer by Rev. George Malkmus
Let me begin to answer these questions by stating that I am not a doctor and it is against the law for me to diagnose or prescribe... and so I cannot directly address or answer any of the above type questions. But what I will do is try to share some of the things I have learned over the past 17 years in regard to physical problems and how diet and lifestyle relate to our wellness.
My knowledge has not come from professional training in the establishment type schools of the American Medical Association or the American Dietetic Association. All of my knowledge has been gained from personal experience, research and the testimonies of others who have made diet changes similar to mine.
So, what have I learned?
The first thing I want to share is that there is not a drug, or vitamin, or herb, or food, or glass of juice, or even a Barleygreen ™ in the world today that will heal anybody of anything!
BECAUSE ONLY THE BODY CAN HEAL ITSELF!!!
All healing must come from within the body as we give the body the proper building materials with which to heal itself! True healing does not come from the treating of symptoms!
Let me elaborate. The medical doctor's approach to healing is to ask the patient: "What is your symptom?" and then prescribe a drug that may relieve that particular symptom. If that drug doesn't relieve the symptom, the doctor will often prescribe a different drug that hopefully will relieve the symptom... or maybe some radiation to relieve the symptom, or maybe even remove the body part through a surgical operation in a further effort to remove the symptom!
It is interesting to observe that the vitamin therapist and herbalist and homeopathic doctor all operate in a similar fashion! When a person comes to any one of them, they will ask that person "What is your symptom?" and then prescribe a vitamin or herb or mild medicine that will hopefully relieve that particular symptom. But they are all approaching physical problems in a similar manner... "What is your symptom?"... 'Here is something that will hopefully help to relieve that particular symptom!'
The difficulty with this approach to physical problems is that they are all dealing with symptoms rather than causes! The symptom will often go away with this method of treatment... only to return later. Suppose a person has a headache and wants to get rid of the pain. In our society, we have been programmed by the commercial advertisements and medical profession to take an aspirin or stronger drug and usually within a short time, the pain will go away. But what has that person really done?
All they have done is short circuit the body's warning or alarm system which was indicating a problem within the body. Yes, the headache may be gone, for the moment, but it will usually surface again, because all that was dealt with was the symptom (the headache). . . not what had caused the headache.
Let me give some additional illustrations: In one of our meetings this past spring, we spoke in a church where there was a lady present who had suffered from severe migraine headaches for over 20 years. She said that hardly a week had gone by in the past 20 years that she had not been incapacitated one or two days a week with these severe migraine headaches, and that often she ended up in the emergency room for shots for the pain. The next day after I spoke, she went on the diet that we teach here at Hallelujah Acres . . . and she has not had a headache since! Why has she not had a headache since? Because for over twenty years she had been creating her headaches through improper diet and lifestyle! Granted, she was doing it in ignorance but the headaches were real and the pain was real and so she did the only thing she knew to do... she treated the symptoms (headaches) with pain medicine. But when she removed the cause of her headaches, the symptoms went away!
Next, let me tell of a gentlemen who came to our seminar, having been diagnosed with adult-onset diabetes many years prior. I first met this man about five years ago when he was still trying to control his diabetes, the symptom, through the use of a pill. About three years ago his doctor put him into the hospital to stabilize his blood sugar as he placed him on injection insulin. Well, his diabetic condition continued to worsen and about eight months ago this gentleman was told by his doctor that his foot had to be amputated because gangrene had set in. At this point, this gentlemen came to one of our seminars, made an immediate and drastic change in his diet and lifestyle and within less then two weeks he was off insulin with blood sugar normal. Just prior to this man coming to us, his blood sugar had been running 150 to 200 each morning, even though he was on two shots of injection insulin daily.
Today, eight months after changing his diet and lifestyle, his blood sugar is running in the 80's with no insulin injections or any medication of any kind in eight months
. All those years, diabetes had not been his problem. The problem was his improper diet and lifestyle, which was creating a symptom called diabetes. When he changed his diet and lifestyle, diabetes, the symptom, went away!
A lady came to our seminar last fall with severe rheumatoid arthritis, in constant pain, on cortisone, overweight, couldn't get out of bed alone or dress herself alone and had been told by her doctor that she was wheel chair bound. For years she had been taking drugs for her symptoms but was progressively getting worse. Eight weeks after she changed her diet and lifestyle, she had lost over 30 pounds, was off all medication, pain was almost totally gone and she was able to get out of bed alone and dress herself alone. Eight months later, she has lost over 80 pounds and there is hardly a trace of the arthritis. What caused this to happen? The arthritis was only the symptom, and when she removed the cause of the symptom, the symptom went away! Also, her weight problem went away. WHY? Because that also is a symptom of improper diet and lifestyle!
Seventeen years ago my mom was diagnosed with cancer. Mom allowed the medical doctors to treat her cancer symptoms with chemotherapy, radiation and a surgical operation. Watching the physical torture mom went through as the doctors treated her symptoms was horrible. In fact, at the time, I felt it was the treatments that mom received that ultimately caused her death rather than the cancer itself.
Well, shortly after mom's death, the doctor told me that I had colon cancer also... only I refused to have my cancer symptoms treated! Instead, at the advice of a friend, I did something as simple as change my diet and lifestyle, overnight, to a raw diet with lots of raw carrot juice. Immediately I started to get well... not only of the cancer, but of every other physical problem that I had, which included severe sinus and allergy problems, hemorrhoids, hypoglycemia, high blood pressure, pimples, dandruff, body odor, etc. It has now been 17 years since I changed my diet and lifestyle and in these seventeen years I have experienced no physical problems of any kind, not been to a doctor, nor taken as much as an aspirin. You see, 17 years ago, I stopped dealing with symptoms and started dealing with what had caused the symptoms! Seventeen years ago I started feeding my body what it needed to rebuild itself to wellness and because I have continued to give my body the proper raw building materials, my body hasn't produced any symptoms in 17 years.
Here is the crux of the whole matter: GOD GAVE US A FABULOUS BODY!!! He didn't make us to be sick! We only get sick when we violate the principles by which he designed these bodies of ours to be nourished. The most wonderful news of all is that God gave us all the ability of self-healing! When we stop the offense that caused the symptom, and then give the body proper building materials with which to heal, the body heals itself!!!
My research has shown that our body is a living organism made of living cells and living cells require living food (raw food) if we are to be well, stay well and function properly. All cooked food is dead food and devoid of almost any nutrition whatsoever. However, I have also learned that the fastest way to restore the body to wellness is not through the eating of raw food... but by consuming large quantities of raw, freshly extracted vegetable juices! The juices do not heal. But what they do is provide the body with concentrated building materials so that the body can heal itself. And the first part of the body that will restore when given the proper nutrients is the immune system. As the immune system restores, then it seeks out the trouble spots throughout the body and starts to heal them. And it doesn't matter what the symptoms are, the body is self-healing when we stop the offense and provide the body cells with the proper building materials.
So where does Barleygreen ™ fit into all that I have been talking about?
First, let me repeat what I said earlier: Barleygreen will not heal anybody of anything. But Barleygreen is the most nutritionally dense food that I am personally aware of on the earth today. When I put it into my body, it provides my body cells with the nutrients my body cells need, not only to heal any physical problem I might have, but also to maintain my body in a high state of health and energy. Barleygreen is the most important food I put into my body every day!
So in conclusion, all the established methods of dealing with physical problems in the past has been from the 'symptomatic' approach which has proved of only some help in some cases but usually does not eliminate the cause of the symptoms... and often will create new problems and new symptoms !
What my research has revealed is that a far better approach to physical problems is to stop putting into our bodies what is causing our physical problems (symptoms) and then provide the body with the building materials with which to heal itself! When this approach is taken toward our physical problems an apparent miracle takes place within the body, because usually in a very short time the problems (symptoms) disappears!
The Bible says in Psalm 103:1-5: "Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits; who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with loving kindness and tender mercies; who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagles!"
