Need Some Inspiration to Get Back on Track? Listen to These Healing Stories…

With Rev. George Malkmus back in 2009.

Stories are truly what inspire me when I need a little emotional boost.

(Also, when I just need to relax and not think about work!)

Over the years, I’ve been more and more convinced that changing your diet can help you overcome many more diseases — if not, almost all — than the medical community would like you to think.

I don’t want to get into the politics of it. That just saps my energy.

But, I do want to share more inspirational stories with you, so you can make your own judgements.

In this second part of my interview with Ann and Paul Malkmus from Hallelujah Acres, they share a bunch of great healing stories that range from healing irritable bowel syndrome and fibromyalgia to cancer and auto-immune diseases.

I think you’ll like listening to them just like I did.

Here’s where you can listen to Part 2 (my written comments follow)…

Here are my thoughts…

1. Stories!

Like I said in the beginning, I love hearing stories. They’re inspiring. When I hear a story like Ann shares, I get excited about natural health — it’s just more anecdotal evidence that this stuff works.

I’m not going to rehash everything that was said here and all the different diseases they talked about — I think it’s valuable to just listen to them if you want inspiration and assurance that diet is a powerful tool for healing.

2. Deviation gives you clues.

I loved what Ann said about deviating from her diet.

When she does, her body tells her that it’s not a good idea.

This may be the best way to understand what works for you — in cooperation with your blood testing.

Your body will tell you what foods work and which ones don’t if you treat it well.

I know most wheat is no good for me. I know maca is not my thing. I know pili nuts give me a headache. I know corn chips give me pimples. I know dozens of other things that I’ve learned from trying foods from time to time to see just how my body reacts.

When your diet is good, your body will help you blaze the trail.

Keep in mind also, on the other side, I’ve seen people think that foods weren’t good for them because when they ate them the particular thing caused physical pain, bloating, or rashes. They assumed it was the food, but it turned out to be their own bodies. They weren’t as healthy as they thought and when they discovered issues with digestion, infection, allergies, etc., they were able to eat the foods again — with no problem.

This is why it’s important to combine how your body feels and use blood testing science, it gives you grounding that allows you to make informed and more accurate decisions.

3. How to survive in an area that’s not healthy.

Paul and Ann live in rural North Carolina. It’s not like Berkeley, CA or some of the other natural and organic food hot spots around the globe.

Basically, if they want good food, they have to grow it or drive. It’s just a commitment that they make. (Keep in mind, they do now have a health food store at the ministry, so they brought the good to them!)

Sometimes, the nearest place is just too far away. In this case, you just need to know that eating non-organic vegetables is better than eating no vegetables at all. So be sure to weigh your decisions based on what’s good, what’s better and what’s best.

Vegetables are good. Organic vegetables are better. Homegrown or highly mineralized organic vegetables are best.

Another thing they do is pick what’s fresh and in season in bulk and then freeze it for later on.

4. Want to succeed? First replace, then eliminate.

This is a great concept that has been around for ages. If you want to succeed with your diet, you have to have replacement foods in place of what you’ve taken out.

A perfect example is when I recently finished up my 60-ish day coffee experiment. I replaced the coffee with green tea, instead of just quitting right away and not drinking anything in the morning. This, I think, was one of the keys to my success.

I’ve since cut back on the green tea, without the need to replace it.

If you do happen to eliminate and not replace, your chances of not knowing what to eat increases — and this just means you get more frustrated and eventually you will crack and go back to some of your old bad habits.

5. Less rigid = better results.

I’ve been rigid and I’ve been loose about my diet in the past. When I was too loose, I ate things that you couldn’t really even consider food. When I was too rigid, I was wonderfully neurotic and obsessed with diet (just ask Annmarie how that was… LOL!)

I’m convinced that there is a sweet spot between being too rigid and too loose that will allow you to be emotionally stable about your diet and the restrictions you’ve chosen for yourself.

You have to find this spot on your own, but just know that the more you move to the extremes the less healthy — physically and emotionally — you’ll be.

6. Want to juice up your life?

You can with Paul and Ann’s 60 day program — totally free — here:

I haven’t done it, but after I published yesterday’s interview, my father-in-law Tom told me he did it a few months back and thought it was great.

So there’s a shining endorsement!

Your question of the day: Have you heard any amazing stories about natural healing?

Live Awesome!

He started seriously researching personal and preventative natural health therapies in 2002 when he was struck with the reality that cancer ran deep in his family and if he didn’t change the way he was living — he might go down that same path. Since then, he’s written and edited 6 books on the subject of natural health, diet and fitness. During this time, he’s constantly been humbled by what experts claim they know and what actually is true. This has led him to experiment with many diets and protocols — including vegan, raw food, fasting, medical treatments and more — to find out what is myth and what really works in the real world.

Kevin has also traveled around the world searching for the best protocols, foods, medicines and clinics around and bringing them to the readers of his blog — which is one of the most widely read natural health blogs in the world with hundreds of thousands of visitors a month from over 150 countries around the world.
