I wanted to thank you so much for being so persistent about getting the word out about this wonderful diet. My daughter sent me the information and I tried it. My PMS symptoms have completely disappeared on the diet, and I feel great! I keep spreading the news.

I thank God for your newsletter and for bringing me into the knowledge of Barely Green. One week after starting Barley Green my PMS symptoms were taken care of and leg pains were helped. I am sharing the good news with those around me.

I am one month into the Hallelujah Diet and feel wonderful!
My biggest surprise was the ease of my caffeine withdrawal–I have been a heavy caffeine drinker (cola) for many years and have tried to quit numerous times without success.
Each time I had horrible headaches, nausea and fatigue.
On the Hallelujah Diet I easily and painlessly was off caffeine in a matter of days.
I assume the raw enzymes helped. How wonderful!
So far I have lost twelve pounds, dropped one dress size, have baby-soft skin, need less sleep, no more mood swings or PMS (amazing!), and I could go on and on…

As a child I was raised on the Standard American Diet. When I was 9, my mom and step-dad were divorced and our eating habits got pretty pathetic. We would drink tons of Kool-Aid and lived on Twinkies and pizza. Around 13 years of age, I started smoking–sometimes two packs a day. At 14 I started doing street drugs and drinking. At 15 I started inhaling modeling glue and gasoline. At 16 I almost died from inhaling too much gasoline. I did drugs on a daily basis, including LSD biweekly. All the while I lived off Cap’n Crunch and whatever cost 69 cents at the store. At 17 I became pregnant, and also became a Christian.
After becoming a Christian I quit all drugs cold turkey, except smoking. At 19 I permanently quit smoking and had my second child. I weighed 180 pounds at that time. Following my son’s birth, I suffered from fatigue, migraines, ovarian cysts, hypoglycemia, pimples, and a foggy brain as a result of all my drug use. At 20 I became pregnant with baby #3 and was so sick I was nearly bedridden during the entire pregnancy with such problems as varicose veins in my uterus and a whole list of other problems. By age 21, my weight was up to 220 pounds, and after #3 was born I became desperate to lose weight. I tried everything and nothing worked–until I finally tried the Atkins Diet– and thought I had found a miracle. The pounds just fell off and I dropped to 145 pounds. But my health was still failing miserably. I slept twelve hours at night, took long naps during the day, and still felt bad. I searched Dr. Atkins’ books to see what I was doing wrong and started taking all the supplements he recommended–but they did not help.
At 23 I was diagnosed with level 4 cervical dysplasia (cancer), plus experiencing the following problems: migraines, severe PMS, heavy menstrual bleeding, ovarian cysts, ovulation pain, mood swings, severe depression, bad circulation, foot pain, constant back and neck pain, ringing in my ears, anxiety, anemia, moderately severe carpal tunnel syndrome, severe constipation, indigestion, heartburn, hypoglycemia, bad breath, severe acne, and hair loss. On top of all this I developed a severe infection in my uterus, and was hospitalized for three days. But there is more: from birth, all three of my children were always ill. My first child, Jazminne, suffered from severe allergies, hearing loss, speech delay, developmental delay, chronic ear infections, had a bloated stomach and poor complexion, along with black circles under her eyes.
My son Jacob was a nightmare! From birth he was always ill, and I battled fevers several times a week with him. He had chronic ear infections, ear tubes, and had to have his adenoids removed. He cried all day and night until he was 2 1/2. He also was underweight, anemic, suffered with cradle cap, a bloated stomach, and his behavior was starting to look like ADHD.
My last baby, Alana, was born the sickest. I gave her the most expensive formula, but by the time she was 1 1/2 years old the doctor thought she had cystic fibrosis. She would poop out undigested food every day, covered with mucous. She always had a runny nose, chronic sinus infections, chronic ear infections, chronic bronchitis, and possible asthma.
But I am still not done: my husband had suffered with diarrhea since childhood. Stomachaches would keep him chained to the house for hours. He also suffered with daily headaches, fatigue, depression and heartburn. In July of 1999 I heard about the Hallelujah Diet at church. That day I thought I was going to church to learn about a new diet to lose weight. Boy, did I ever lose weight, but the biggest weight I lost was all those physical problems my family and I had been suffering with for so many years.
Since going on the Hallelujah Diet six months ago, all the physical problems my family and I had suffered with are gone!!! As I wrote this testimony letter, I cried as I wrote down all the physical problems that have gone away since changing what I was eating and feeding my family. It is amazing what a difference a simple diet change has made in our family’s health, and I thank the Lord every day.
Cynthia is now 24 years old, works part time in a health food store, and has recently sent in her application for Health Ministers training in March 2000. She learned of the Hallelujah Diet at her church, where both the pastor and assistant pastor, along with their wives, are trained Health Ministers with ‘Back to the Garden Health Ministries’. For those who might be interested, here is a sample of Cynthia’s daily diet: 6:00 A.M.: Barleygreen and carrot juice. * 11:00 A.M.: Barleygreen * 12:00 P.M.: carrot juice* 12:30 P.M.: raw fruit, or vegetable salad * Dinner: Barleygreen and carrot juice, followed thirty minutes later by a big vegetable salad, followed by some cooked vegetarian food.
That decision was made two years ago, and 30 pounds ago, for the easiest weight loss…

In May of 2004, I hit a crossroads in my life – I had serious health issues that needed to be addressed! I had heard about The Hallelujah Diet way of eating four years prior, from a close friend whose husband had been diagnosed with cancer. This friend and her husband had embraced The Hallelujah Diet and her husband recovered from his cancer after adopting the diet. I knew it was the right way to eat, but I wasn’t willing to give up my comfort foods at the time. I guess I just didn’t hurt badly enough at the time to be willing to make the diet change.
Four years after I first learned about The Hallelujah Diet, I was hurting so bad I had a decision to make. Were my taste buds and comfort foods going to control my health and life, or was I going to take control of what I ate? When my daughter learned that I was going to adopt The Hallelujah Diet, and eat a vegan diet comprised of 85% raw and 15% cooked, she challenged me with this question: ‘If people were getting great results eating 85% raw vegan foods, what would happen if I ate 100% raw fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts? I was horrified! Now, not only was I supposed to give up my meat, dairy, and eggs, but now she was asking me to give up all cooked veggies as well. I thought about it all night, and by morning I had let go of my addiction to cooked foods and began a journey into all the raw fruits, veggies, seeds and nuts that I could or wanted to eat!
That decision was made two years ago, and 30 pounds ago, for the easiest weight loss I have ever experienced. My adult acne of 23 years went away! My monthly PMS cramps, which I had suffered with every month for 32-years, disappeared. Constipation gone! Pre-cancerous skin cancers gone! Achy knees I used to experience while jogging all gone, along with many other symptoms!
During these past two years, while on a totally raw Hallelujah Diet, I have been active in triathlons, 5K’s, power walking, horseback riding, dancing with my husband, etc. I never would have believed that I could be this athletic, eating this kind of food, at almost 50-years of age. After researching protein, and learning things like mother’s breast milk is only 5% protein during such an important time of building the body, and that major athletes in America eat this way, I realized I was getting my protein from the same source the cows get their protein – directly from the living plants! Now I had living proof in my own body that all the protein my body needed could be found in the living plants, and I realized that all the protein hype was just that ? hype.
I now look the best, and feel the best I have ever looked or felt in my life, and I am excited about turning 50 years old. I had tried to be a vegetarian years ago, but now as I look back on it, I realize my diet really wasn’t vegan. Now I have found a way to be pill free, pain free, and disease free!
I had been looking for a book to show me proof that this vegan diet was the best way to go, and I recently found that proof in a book titled The China Study by T. Colin Campbell. This book stops all nay sayers. But besides the proof found in this book as to the truth of a pure vegan diet being the best way to go, my body gives me all the proof I need every day. I am now eating to live, rather than living to eat, and will continue to eat this way for the rest of my life! God is so good to His kids to give H.A. as a way to find & experience life & health!!!!

I have a friend who is very sick with cancer. In my search to find a way to help her, I came across Dr. Lorraine Day and your book ‘God’s Way to Ultimate Health.’ I went on The Hallelujah Diet and my digestive discomfort subsided, my eczema cleared up, and my PMS symptoms improved greatly. I also have clearer thinking, more energy, a better sense of well being, and I have lost 10 pounds!
…this Hallelujah Diet was the answer to my prayers.

Dear Reverend Malkmus, In December 2001 my husband was at work and he suddenly, without warning, lost his balance coming downstairs. Immediately, the left side of his body became numb and started tingling and his right leg could not support his weight.
He went to the Emergency Room only to be admitted for a week of spine probing and fluid withdrawal, brain frying x-rays and many other invasive tests. All we were told was that his pupils were very dilated and that he either had cancer or multiple sclerosis of the C2 portion of his spine ? we were supposed to wait for 8 weeks to see if the lesion grew ? if it grew he had cancer, if not, it was MS.
We immediately started to pray ? not for a cure, but for wisdom and discernment. God always answers our prayers but not always in the way we expect. As his family around him fell apart emotionally, I watched his acceptance at whatever God had planned for him and my tears flowed with submission to God’s will. I watched Dave plant seeds of faith in his children as he trusted the Lord with his health.As I prayed the Lord reminded me of Psalm 41:1-3 which reads, ‘Blessed is he who has regard for the weak; the Lord delivers him in times of trouble. The Lord will sustain him on his sickbed and restore him from his bed of illness.’ This was the hope I needed.
As the New Year approached I started my fourth-year round of Pneumonia or Bronchitis. Each year it progressively got worse and each year I had to take antibiotics for longer periods of time. As discouragement set in, my prayers led me to Proverbs 2:10-11 which reads, ‘For wisdom will enter
your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul. Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you.’
After Dave was released from the hospital we returned to church; Dave in a walker. Suddenly people from everywhere came to us and said, ‘you need to start Barleymax? and carrot juice.’ I said, ‘What in the world are those?’ A friend of mine gave me her copy of ‘God’s Way to Ultimate Health.’ We were scheduled to take a four-hour road trip to see my Mom, and I proceeded to read the book out loud to my family. Our 15-year-old daughter was in the backseat with her CD headset on.
As I consumed the words I was reading I knew God was giving me the wisdom I had prayed for. Coming from the Standard American Diet, and realizing the ‘drastic’ change that would be needed, I started to think, ‘God, surely this is not what you have in mind for us!’ At eight weeks, Dave’s doctor confirmed he had MS and that he was to start taking the A, B or C drug for the rest of his life. But he refused all the toxic choices and told the doctor he was going to look for an alternative.
As I prayed and contemplated this change I was working as a Financial Controller at our church. A pastor brought a young lady into my office and suggested I listen to her testimony. One year previously she had MS so severely she was in a wheelchair, her body riddled with pain daily and she had refused all drug therapy. She had 12 lesions (11 in her brain and 1 in her spine? Dave only had 1 in his spine). Se went on this (Hallelujah) diet and in six months her lesions were one-half the size. After one year her MS was gone and today she teaches aerobics.
I cried as I realized that she was God’s confirmation to me that this Hallelujah Diet was the answer to my prayers.
At the time, I didn’t consider myself to have many health problems (quite delusional I might add), but I knew that if I didn’t do this diet with Dave it wouldn’t be successful, as I was the one preparing our family’s meals. I did not want to loose my husband to disease and was willing to do anything to help him. With my Lord at my side I began to consume knowledge to understand how to do this thing, how to feed my family, how to renew my mind.
God has blessed our efforts. For years I prayed that Dave and I would have a ministry we could do together (we both were very active in our church, me in Women’s Bible Study and Dave in First Impressions Ministry) ? I just didn’t realize that Dave would have to become ill for that ministry to be born. God began a good work in us!
We started the (Hallelujah) diet immediately. Our 15-year- old daughter had overheard me reading in the car and on the way home had ordered her usual cheeseburger and fries at a restaurant. She took one bite and said, ‘I will never eat meat again. I heard everything you read and don’t want to get sick like my daddy.’ So as a family we ventured on the journey to health, basically alone, except for a couple of wonderful Health Ministers from Bradenton, Florida.
In July 2002 we decided to go to the Health Minister training in Shelby. We went for knowledge ? that perhaps this knowledge would help make this easier for us. We were inspired by the 200+ people who shared their testimonies and we loved the heart of Rev. Malkmus. For the first time since December 2001, Dave’s 24/7 MS symptoms disappeared for a whole day. That gave us renewed hope and faith that we were on the right path. Sometime during that week (at Health Minister training) our minds and hearts were transformed. We knew we had to become Health Ministers and share this with others ? everyone we knew was sick in some way or another. Our Back to Eden Health Ministry was born in September 2002 and we have touched over 400 lives since its beginning.
Following are the health improvements we have experienced (on The Hallelujah Diet):
Dave threw his walker away — most days his MS symptoms are non-existent. gone are: severe arthritic pain (he used to take 800 mg of Ibuprofen twice a day for the pain), facial cancers, 44 pounds, body odor, toe fungus, acid reflux, headaches, snoring, an undiagnosed chest lump, severe joint pain, bad breath, and he is now growing hair back on his head — on a bald spot he has had for twenty plus years.
Sherry — is now off blood pressure and thyroid medicine (taken for 10 years before making the diet change), facial wrinkles have lessened and now have healthier hair. Healed and gone are: allergies, 50 pounds, Three Years of bronchitis/pneumonia (and has not returned), athlete’s foot, bladder incontinence healed, acid reflux, body odor, bad breath, dandruff, bleeding gums, large bunion (almost gone), shoulder pain from previous injuries, hand, facial skin smoother, black moles disappearing, and for 32 years I was anemic and now give blood regularly.
Amberlee (our daughter) — At 15, no one would expect that she would be experiencing many health problems, but we noticed several of her health problems had disappeared. She lost 41 pounds and found self-esteem and joy. acne and bleeding gums are gone, achy joints, knee lock ups, headaches, PMS and menstrual pain, dandruff, acid reflux are gone, and stretch marks have disappeared. and the constant cough she had for two years disappeared. Her legs also snapped and creaked as she walked up stairs, making us feel we needed to follow her with an oil can to lubricate her. Today, Amberlee, at age 18, is a beautiful, young, healthy, woman!
Since going on The Hallelujah Diet two and a half years ago, none of us have been sick, and we are enjoying improved health and quality of life and now feel we can fulfill God’s purpose in our lives.

Thank you for the Hallelujah Diet. I am 44 years old, and I fill good. I was having problems with PMS. Since I started the Hallelujah Diet, I have NO problems with PMS. Also, I went back to college to get my certification to teach school. My memory is better than it was when I was in High School. On my report card I made all A’s and they put me on the Dean’s List. All because of the Hallelujah Diet. Everyday, I tell someone about the Diet because it makes sense to me that is how God wants us to eat. We say we are Christian, and want to walk and talk like Jesus, but a lot of us donot want to eat like Jesus. I want it ALL!
…our family has experienced incredible health benefits
Submitted by: Angela P.
In November 2000, I began praying and asking the Lord if there was something I could do to help my son. I would go to his room while he was asleep and pray over him and ask the Lord to help him. It was our first year of home-schooling, my son was five, but had difficulty focusing and keeping his attention on what I was trying to teach him. He also had asthmatic symptoms.
We had already removed refined sugar from his diet years before to help many problems he was having. But very soon after praying over him, we found out about the Hallelujah Diet, and I believed it was the answer to my prayer. On January 1, 2001, our family began following the Hallelujah Diet. After searching for healthy ways for years, we were so thankful to have found out about your diet.
It has now been over a year since making the diet change, and our family has experienced incredible health benefits I found a little hard to believe at first. My son was able to focus significantly better after following the Hallelujah Diet for only a few months, and he had no more asthmatic symptoms. Before the diet change he would get a bloody nose if he rubbed his nose, but that too is gone. Many of those
little things have disappeared.
PMS for me has disappeared, and now I can show my family how much I love them no matter what time of the month it is! I could go on and on! Thank you, and yes, hallelujah! The verse that comes to mind is Matthew 7:7: ‘Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.’
