Cancer Doesn't scare us anymore.....thanks to hallelujah diet

The Hallelujah diet is the NUTRITION portion of an overall healthy LIFESTYLE. Once you understand The Hallelujah Diet, you will find that it is very simple to prepare and follow the ratio of 85% raw and 15% cooked food each day.The 85% Portion of Hallelujah Diet

This is the Hallelujah portion of The Hallelujah Diet! An abundance of God's natural foods that are uncooked (raw) and unprocessed. The dense living nutrients found in raw foods and their juices are the things that meet and satisfy your cells nutritional needs. When you eat these living foods, you will find that you no longer have to deal with hunger pangs or cravings.

Live foods are also what produce abundant energy and vibrant health. The following are items from each food category that fit into the 85% portion of each day's food intake:

Freshly extracted vegetable juices, Barley Max, Carrot Juice Max, Beet Max, and distilled water with WaterMax added.

Dairy Alternatives
Fresh almond milk, creamy banana milk, as well as frozen banana, strawberry or blueberry "fruit creams"

All fresh, as well as unsulphured, organic dried fruit. Limit consumption to no more than 15% of daily food intake. (Fruit juice is included in this 15%, and is not recommended in large quantities.)

Soaked oats, millet, raw muesli, dehydrated granola, dehydrated crackers, and raw ground flax seed

Raw green beans, raw peas, sprouted garbanzo beans, sprouted lentils, and sprouted mung beans

Nuts and Seeds
Raw almonds, sunflower seeds, macadamia nuts, walnuts, raw almond butter or tahini. Eat sparingly.

Oils and Fats
Extra virgin olive oil, Udo's Choice Perfected Oil Blend, Udo's Choice DHA Oil Blend, raw unrefined flax oil and avocados

Fresh or dehydrated herbs, garlic, sweet onions, parsley, cayenne pepper and salt-free seasonings

Raw soups

Fruit smoothies, raw fruit pies with nut/date crusts, date-nut squares, etc.

All raw vegetables

The 15% Portion

The following cooked foods make up the 15% portion of The Hallelujah Diet, and follow the raw salad at the evening meal. This portion can be very delicious, and actually proves beneficial for those trying to maintain body weight.

Caffeine free herb teas and cereal-based coffee-like beverages, along with bottled organic juices

Non-dairy cheese, rice milk, and organic butter, all sparingly

Stewed and unsweetened frozen fruits

Whole-grain cereals, breads, muffins, pasta, brown rice, millet, etc

Lima, aduki, black, kidney, navy, pinto, red and white beans

Mayonnaise made from cold-pressed oils

Light Gray Celtic Sea Salt (use sparingly)

Soups made from scratch without fat, dairy, or table salt

Raw, unfiltered honey, rice syrup, unsulphured molasses, stevia, carob, pure maple syrup, date sugar (use very sparingly)

Steamed or wok-cooked fresh or frozen vegetables, baked white or sweet potatoes, squash, etc.

While this list may appear a bit limiting at first, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of exciting recipes that meet these criteria. See our recipe section and our selection of recipe books for additional ideas.

The foods listed below create most of the physical problems we experience, and are not a part of The Hallelujah Diet. To have real health, eliminate them from your diet as quickly as possible.

Foods to Be Avoided With Hallelujah Diet

Alcohol, coffee, tea, cocoa, carbonated beverages and soft drinks, all artificial fruit drinks, including sports drinks, and all commercial juices containing preservatives, salt, and sweeteners

All milk, cheese, eggs, ice cream, whipped toppings, and non-dairy creamers

Canned and sweetened fruits, along with non-organic dried fruits

Refined, bleached flour products, cold breakfast cereals, and white rice

Beef, pork, fish, chicken, turkey, hamburgers, hot dogs, bacon, sausage etc

Nuts & Seeds
All roasted and/or salted seeds and nuts. Peanuts are not a nut but a legume, and very difficult to digest.

All lard, margarine, shortenings, and anything containing hydrogenated oils

Table salt, black pepper, and any seasonings containing them

All canned, packaged, or creamed soups containing dairy products

All refined white or brown sugar, sugar syrups, chocolate, candy, gum, cookies, donuts, cakes, pies, or other products containing refined sugars or artificial sweeteners

All canned vegetables containing added sodium or preservatives, or vegetables fried in oil

Once you have stopped eating the foods that will harm your health and started eating the foods that will enhance your health, you may experience some symptoms of detoxification. If you do, take heart! This means you are getting rid of toxins that have been stored in your body!

Happy New Year

In this new year, let's all find what's most beautiful in ourselves, our lives, our hearts, and pass it on. Let's believe at least one impossible thing every day -- then let's make it absolutely possible. Let's refuse the words no, can't, don't, give up. Let's spread the word that cancer can be defeated. Let's remember those we've lost and loved, and those still in the fight. And let's make a difference every day. When we stand up to cancer.

Let's ring in the New Year right, with resolutions to keep cancer away:

1.Stop Smoking Now - And if you don't smoke, NEVER START.
2.Eat right: Add anti cancer food to your diet like broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage. And cut back on red meat!
3.Manage your stress - relax, meditate, learn to let go, and EXERCISE.
4.Know your family history - and if you don't know, learn more, ask questions, pass on to others what you find out.
5.Get examined: Have a mammogram, a prostate exam, get a colonoscopy, have your skin examined. Because what you don't know can hurt you.
6. Encourage your friends to join an advocacy group(like this group) - no one should feel alone.
7. Stand up and be heard: Write to house of assembly to demand that they make cancer a national priority. Your voice matters more than you know.
8.Support the Stand by participating in our activities.
9.Launch a Star at The Constellation at STAND UP TO CANCER NAIJA discussion board in honor, or in memory, of someone you love.
10.For more things you can do, go to www.standuptocancernaija.c And because giving makes a body feel so good, call us to donate what you can.

This is where the end of cancer begins. When together we rise as one. When we stand up strong, stand up brave, stand up undeniable. When we Stand Up To Cancer Naija.

Help us Stand Up To Cancer in Nigeria by Volunteering

Would you like to help us Stand Up To Cancer in Nigeria by volunteering some of your time to visit people at hospitals?

We have planned hospital visits to show cancer patients some love and care. As it is the festive season, this will enable us stop and think of those who just wish they could be part of the festivities.

Visiting someone who is sick isn’t always easy, but it can be an enjoyable time and it should primarily be a comfort for the patient.
Many family members and friends find it difficult to visit someone who is sick. If the person is in the hospital, it may be more difficult for some to visit because of past negative experiences they have had at a hospital. Many visitors are anxious or find it stressful to be around a patient because they are dealing with their own fears of sickness. It is natural to hesitate in seeing someone in pain or seriously ill. Unfortunately, many people end up not visiting, because they do not know what to do or say to help.
Most patients we have spoken to just want the company. They want to feel loved and thought about. They do not want to be forgotten.

Come join us and put a smile on the faces of these patients.

Here are some of the ways that you can get involved:

Bring the patient a small gift. This is not about money spent- the gift can be something you made, like a card. Let’s face facts, we all like receiving gifts, especially when we are not feeling our best.
A newspaper or magazine can reinforce a sense of connection to the outside world. Besides being pretty- flowers, plants or cards leave tangible evidence of the visit.
A gift will always bring a smile to their faces, even for days after the visit.

Bring something that can be a distraction after you have left. Crossword puzzle books, playing cards, reading books, comics, even lotto scratch off’s: anything that they can easily do on their own.
Many places do not allow visitors after certain hours, so your gift will help with the boredom at night and be a welcome relief.

Bring something that will help make the experience nicer. Blankets, new pajamas, slippers, new lotions, soaps, or a soft pillow can make the time spent in bed for a patient more enjoyable.
Gifts like these will be much appreciated.

Bring the patient a variety fresh fruits. If they are having appetite trouble this might help to inspire them.

Have Fun. Bring an activity with you. Sometimes we learn the most about someone while doing something together. It takes the pressure off coming up with conversation, while providing a non-threatening atmosphere.
The focus becomes the activity and not the person and their illness and that is refreshing. It could be a board game, craft activity, movie, or even a laptop computer preloaded with games or music and if you have wireless internet,
you could surf the net for helpful resources or just for fun. Bring the newspaper and talk about current events. Give someone a manicure or fix someone's hair....just be creative.

When visiting, help with concrete tasks. After getting the sick person’s consent; help by straightening the bed, watering plants, straightening up the room, or any other chore that helps the patient or makes their surroundings look well attended.

It also might be helpful to offer to do things in the “outside” world for the patient where practicable.

We also want to solicit with every member to donate towards this good cause.
We have planned for everyone to wear a T-shirt or Polo (whichever you prefer).
Everyone going for the visitation will have to place their orders well before time, so the T-shirts will be ready before the day of visitation.
It will take a maximum of 9 days for orders to be produced. Your orders will be dispatch four days before the visit.

This is where the End of Cancer Begins

Cancer is one of the most significant killer diseases around the world although in fact, it's more accurate to say it's a collection of about 100 similar diseases. Cancer can be cured, but the cure rate depends on which variety the person has, how soon it was diagnosed, and how healthy the person's body is. Throughout this non-profit organization, we'll be discussing the most common or best-known forms of cancer, examining their possible causes, risk factors, symptoms, and treatment options. Specifically, each article will address these factors. We invite everyone to join this community to share your connection to cancer. One in two men and one in three women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, but if we stand together to create efficient progress in cancer research, those statistics can change.

AIMS: Creating awareness, prevention ,early diagnosis, patient aid,research aid and treatment.
