The "Garden of Eden" Diet - Helps the Body Heal - Recover from Cancer


The Garden of Eden Diet Instructions
given to Adam and Eve for them, their Children
and Descendants of the Human Race were:
  " You let it serve as Food...take Eat and LIVE Forever Young."
Genesis 1:29; 3:22
(No Animal Products, Oils, Grain Products) 

Jesus Promoted the "Garden" Instructions:
   "...Eat always from The Creators Table...
(Vegetation, Fruit) which GIVE YOUTH and
You will LIVE Forever Young...any other Instructions ("Eat Bread", "Eat Meat") are
from Satan and lead by Disease to Death."

   He sent his case studies to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) established in 1937 in Washington, D.C. A copy of his letter to the NCI is in his book that is still in print and can be ordered from online bookstores: or 
   43 Years Later - In 1982, the National Research Council published the document "Diet, Nutrition and Cancer" which summarized the research literature on the Relationship between various Chronic Diseases and Dietary Patterns"

1958 - Dr. Max Gerson, M.D.
   His book, "A Cancer Therapy - Results of 50 Cases and the CURE of Advanced Cancer
- A Summary of 30 Years (1928 - 1958) of Clinical Experimentation Healing the Hopeless" was published
   Dr. Gerson's Successful *DIET THERAPY* was - The "Garden of Eden" Diet - Eating only Fruits, Greens and Vegetables - (No Animal Products, Oils or Grain Products)

1981National Cancer Research Council - "Doll and Peto concluded that about 35 percent of all cancer deaths were related to nutrition, with a plausible range of 10 to 70 percent. This conclusion was driven largely by data on dietary behaviors that might increase risk.
   The evidence supporting the role of vegetables and fruit in cancer prevention provided a foundation for several documents that were the basis of national nutrition policy in the 1980s and 1990s. 
   In 1982, the National Research Council (NRC) published the seminal document, Diet, Nutrition and Cancer, which summarized the research literature on the relationship between various chronic diseases and dietary patterns."

1984 - "Fighting Disease" was published by the Editors of Prevention Magazine. In the chapter on "Facing the Cancer Challenge", under the heading THE DIET/CANCER LINK it says:
   "The day may come when *DIET THERAPY* is widely recognized as essential, not only to the PREVENTION but also to the TREATMENT of Cancer." (Foods, especially Animal Products, were listed as "Promoting" cancer)

1991 - "5 a Day" Program started by the National Cancer Institute promoting the Eating of 5 Servings a Day of Fruit and Vegetables to Help with the Prevention and Recovery of Cancer. (In 2007, the *5 a Day* Program was changed to the *Fruit and Veggies - More Matter* Program)

2002 - "5 a Day" Logo seen in grocery stores. Discontinued in 2007 when the *Fruits and Veggies - More Matters" Program was started.


2004 - United Nations - World Health Organization (WHO) endorsed for Worldwide Participation the U.S. "5 A Day" Program promoting the Eating of 5 to 9 Servings a Day of Fruits and Vegetables to: "Fight Cancer, Heart Disease & the Effects of Aging", the Program Slogan.
WHO Reports:

2006 - "The China Study" by T. Colin Powell, Ph.D
"The research project culminated in a 20-year partnership of Cornell University, Oxford University, and the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine, a survey of diseases and lifestyle factors in rural China and Taiwan. More commonly known as the China Study, “this project eventually produced more than 8000 statistically significant Associations between various DIETARY Factors and DISEASE.” 
   The findings? “People who Ate the most ANIMAL-Based Foods got the MOST CHRONIC DISEASE … (Cancer, Heart Disease, Diabetes)...People who ate the most plant-based foods were the healthiest and tended to avoid chronic disease.
   These Results could not be ignored,” said Dr. Campbell.

2007 - "Fruits and Veggies - More Matter" Program started to replace the *5 a Day* Program.

2000 - Shirley Hightower - Breast Cancer
Shirley of Marietta, Georgia was Diagnosed with BREAST CANCER in May 2000. Her Story is told in the book, "The Living Foods Lifestyle" by Brenda Cobb, Founder and Director of the Living Foods Institute

   "I immediately began Researching Alternative Treatments and found out about Ann Wigmore and the Living Foods Lifestyle. This Natural Healing Approach just made good sense to me. I found out that Brenda Cobb had a Living Foods program in Atlanta, and I immediately called and enrolled for her 10-Day Detoxification and Rebuilding Program. In just the first 10 Days I began to Feel much Better. I found the Support I needed at the Institute.
   When first Diagnosed, my Tumor was a 2.1. After doing the Living Foods Lifestyle for about 30 Days, I had a Lumpectomy in June 2000. When the Doctor removed the lump it was only a 1.4. So, in that small amount of time my Tumor Shrank.
   Before Surgery, I was told I would have to at least have Radiation and possibly Chemotherapy, but when I returned to the Oncologist, I found that I wouldn't need any Chemotherapy ro Radiation. I believe that is a direct Result of the Living Foods Lifestyle.
   Besides the Wonderful Results with Cancer I have also experienced Better Sleep, much Higher Energy, my Hair became Shiner with Thicker Texture, my Skin became Beautiful, Glowing and Young Looking, and my Attitude became very Positive.
   The Lord has truly Blessed Me. I am so Glad that I found the Living Foods Institute and I Thank them and Brenda Cobb for the Positive, Encouraging Support."

2002 - Chris Storch - Breast Cancer
Chris' story is from the Summer/Fall 2002 issue of the "Back to the Garden" magazine published by the Hallelujah Acres Headquarters for "The Hallelujah Diet"
   "Just an update on my Healing Process. You might remember that I was Diagnosed with BREAST CANCER in April 2000, had 3 Chemotherapy Treatments which shrank the Tumor from 3 cm to 1 cm. By February 2001, the Tumor returned and quickly grew to 4 cm.
    In May 2001 I began "The Hallelujah Diet". By October 10, 2001, (5 Months Later) the Center of the Tumor, which had a large Scab on it, began to Disintegrate. The scab fell off and left a hole aoubt 1/8 to 1/4 inch deep in my Chest. The Tumor continues to soften and become flatter. When I started on "The Hallelujah Diet", it stuck out about 1/2 to 3/4 inches off my Chest.
    I have found an Ob-GYN Doctor in my area who is 'Bridging the Gap' between Conventional and Alternative Medicine. She has begun to Document the Progress I am Experiencing on the Diet. I Feel Well and Continue to Drink 6 to 8 Glasses of Carrot Juice a Day, along with Eating mostly Raw Food."

2004 - Rita Myer - Breast Cancer - Stage IV - Metastasized to Bone
Rita's story is from the Fall 2004 issue of the "Back to the Garden" magazine. In 1997 she had a LUMP in her BREAST that was benign. Then in 1999 after a Needle-Biopsy, Rita was told she had INVASIVE DUCT CELL CARCINOMA.
   "She had gone in for a Routine Checkup when her Doctor felt a Lump in her Breast. After a needle-biopsy, she was told that she had Invasive Duct Cell Carcinoma (Cancer). After further tests and bone biopsies, it was determined that the Cancer had Metastasized to the Bone: she had Stage IV Breast Cancer.
   Her doctors told her that she had 6 Months to live.
The doctors Cncouraged her to have Chemotherapy, Radiation and Surgery. Initially, she refused the Chemotherapy. Her doctors told her there wasn't much of a chance for her recovery, but that if she was to have any chance at all, she must do the treatment. Not aware of any other options, she began Chemotherapy.
   Rita says: "I started dying as soon as they told me that I only had a few months to live. It is hard to describe what happens in your mind. You start Believing what you have been told, and you begin to Prepare for Your Death."

In the meantime Leon (her husband) was Searching for a Way to Keep his Wife Alive. A friend had started sending them the Hallelujah Acres weekly email Hallelujah Health Tip, and Leon started to Hope as he shared the many Inspirational Testimonials with Rita.

As she began to learn more about the body and how it works, she knew that she needed her lymph nodes for her immune system to function properly, and so she refused to have any taken out when they removed the Walnut-Sized Lump. She also Refused the Radiation Treatments, and opted to Stop Chemotherapy. 
   She studied more about The Hallelujah Diet and watched Dr. Lorraine Day's video "You Can't Improve on God". That was the the first she had ever heard of anyone Surviving Stage IV Cancer. Rita became inspired to adopt the Hallelujah Acres Program. 

Rita: "Leon was the only one who ever offered me any HOPE of Survival. He Refused to give up, and he encouraged me to begin The Hallelujah Diet. He kept giving me more information and kept telling me that I would Not Die. Leon's Faith made me whole."
   Rita says that she had Everyone Praying for Her, and she believes that it was through Prayer that God directed them to "The Hallelujah Diet" and gave them the Wisdom they needed to Implement the Program. 
   "God Works through the Laws of Nature, and as We Pray God Heals Us...
He Asks for Us to Participate in our Healing. Our Faith plays a Vital Role." 

1999 - 2004 - 4 1/2 Years after making a Change in Diet, Rita was still alive, living a full life and shairing with whoever is willing to listen to her phenomenal story of survival and healing. 
   Rita's husband Leon continues to Juice about 50 Pounds of Carrots for her Each Week, and she doesn't stray from "The Hallelujah Diet" for anything.
    Her Doctors say that she is a Miracle and have sent several of their Patients to the Health Classes that she now Teaches Weekly.
   "People who hear my Story have rarely heard of anyone with Stage IV Cancer Surviving. They are in Wonder and Amazement. They realize the Traditional Way is Not Working and Want the Same Kind of Miracle in their Life that I Experienced."

Exercise (Walking) as Cancer Treatment

"Evidence seems to support the benefits of exercise as a treatment for cancer. Several studies have examined the relationship between exercise, rehabilitation and quality of life in cancer patients and reported positive findings. 

Studies have followed women undergoing breast cancer treatment who added moderate exercise to their treatment regimen. In most studies women exercised at a moderate intensity (60-85% maximal heart rate) for twenty to thirty minutes, 3 times per week from 4 to 12 weeks. The exercise programs included bicycle ergometer and Walking Programs.

These studies have found that overall, exercise had a positive effect on physical and psychological functioning of cancer patients while in treatment. These benefits include the following objective and self-reported findings:

* increased functional capacity and decreased body fat

* increased lean muscle mass

* decreased nausea and fatigue

* improved natural defense mechanisms

* improved sense of control

* improved mood

* improved self-esteem

* self reported improved quality of life

Other studies found that exercising cancer patients had improved work capacity, lower heart rates at given exercise intensity, increased maximum workloads and time to exhaustion than did non-exercising cancer patients.

Psychological changes, including a decrease in total mood disturbances, decrease in depression and fewer problems sleeping were noted between the exercise and non-exercise groups.

A review of the literature shows some evidence that exercise rehabilitation has a beneficial effect on the physical and psychological well-being of patients with breast cancer. However, more focused studies are needed to draw specific conclusions. While these results must be considered with some degree of caution, it would suggest that performing moderate exercise can provide great benefit and little risk to cancer patients."
