Colon cancer healing
by Rev. George H. Malkmus, author of God's Way to Ultimate Health and inventor of the Hallelujah Acres diet
"It has now been more than 20 years since the doctor told me I had colon cancer [a tumor about the size of a baseball had been found underneath his left rib cage]. When I first heard the word "cancer," it struck terror in me. I was scared because I knew what I was facing. As a pastor, I had sat at the bedside of many cancer victims and conducted their funerals throughout my ministry. And I had recently watched my own Mother die a slow, torturous death after her colon cancer was treated with chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. Refusing to subject my body to those same medical treatments that I felt had helped kill my Mom, I sought an alternative.
Fortunately, I had a preacher friend in Texas by the name of Lestor Roloff who encouraged me to simply change my diet [to a vegetarian regime composed largely of raw fruits and vegetables] and lifestyle and drink lots of freshly extracted carrot juice! It sounded too simple, but, I took his advise... drastically and overnight changed my diet and lifestyle and almost immediately started to get well!
Within one year, not only was my cancer gone, but so were all my other physical problems. These included high blood pressure, severe sinus and allergy problems, hemorrhoids, hypoglycemia, fatigue, pimples... even body odor and dandruff!"
Emphasizing the wisdom of the Genesis 1:29 diet of raw fruits and vegetables handed down to mankind in the Garden of Eden story, Rev. Malkmus teaches that God created our bodies to be self-healing, and that this healing works best when we give our bodies nutrition in the form of raw foods as God intended. Rev. Malkmus teaches that the more mankind strays from the original Genesis 1:29 diet of raw fruits and vegetables, the more likely sickness is to occur. He emphasizes that raw fruits and vegetables are the foods by which our Creator intended us to be nourished and sustained in perfect health, and that Genesis also states that God intends us to earn this food by "the sweat of thy face" (exercise).
He also reminds Christians that our bodies are the "temple of God," and that, "If any man defile the temple, him shall God destroy. . . ." "All healing must come from within the body as we give the body the proper building materials with which to heal itself. Our body is a living organism made up of living cells, and living cells require living food (raw food) to function properly. All cooked food is dead food and devoid of almost any nutrition." "I have also learned that the fastest way to restore the body to wellness is not through the eating of raw food alone, but also 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 the body can heal itself. 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," Malkmus concludes.

Numb right arm becoming normal again after breast cancer operation
by Maryam Neshan Barjan (Maria), Teheran, Iran
”I will shortly be celebrating the second anniversary of my becoming a RAW VEGETARIAN. It was about two years ago, at the height of my suffering from deadly cancer, that I was introduced to the raw-food diet, which completely changed my life. In fact, it saved my life. Today, after nineteen months of eating raw vegetable food, I am a completely different person. I have not used any medicine since about a year before becoming a Raw Vegetarian and I feel very healthy. My right arm, which had been completely numb since the breast operation, has become normal. For the first time in more than three years, I felt my arm itching. I really cried for joy. I will never forget that moment.”
Full recovery from lung cancer and massive heart attack without chemotherapy/drugs/surgery
by Shirley Lipschutz-Robinson © 2002
In 1996 my husband's routine physical checkup at the VA hospital (veteran administration) revealed a tumor in one of his lung. The doctors wanted to perform a biopsy immediately to find out if the growth was malignant and they were already talking about radiation and chemo "therapy". From past experience and knowledge, I knew that this was not the answer. These so called "therapies" provide no hope for real cure. Biopsies are very traumatic to the body and chemo/radiation are well known to destroy the immune system.
Instead, I immediately began to treat my husband (Chuck) with Homeopathy, raw vegetable juice, flaxseed oil, herbal formula in tincture/extract form such as the Essiac formula, the Hoxsey formula, and Cat's Claw extract. (More info on natural cancer cure: www.shirleys-wellness-cafe.com/cancer.htm)
Since 1996 doctors have continued to monitor Chuck's tumor with their CAT scan and PET scan. The tests revealed that a small mass still remains in his lung, but the doctors aren't concerned about it because the tumor has completely stopped growing and Chuck experiences none of the usual symptoms associated with lung cancer. To this day he remains healthy and well.

Adenoma in right parotid gland (salivary) healed
by Susan Ahl Piper
”In February 2001, I was diagnosed with an adenoma in my right parotid gland (salivary) and was told I had two choices: radiation or total parotidectomy. I was certainly not open to radiation, nor was I very eager for surgery, as there is some risk of facial paralysis, because four branches of the facial nerve grow through the parotid gland, which is located along the jaw area.
So I began asking around and found that many people are having excellent results healing themselves through raw foods. So by March I was eating 100% raw organic foods. I also invested in an alkaline water filter, since I had read that cancer cannot grow in an alkaline environment. And, I began taking supplements to boost the immune system.
Within 5 months, my tumor completely disappeared.
The first thing that I did was read a book called "How I Conquered Cancer Naturally" by Eydie Mae. I recommend this book to anyone who wants inspiration to go raw, and to see clearly how raw foods can heal. She healed herself of breast cancer. It was very inspiring to me, and got me started on a healing regimen immediately upon reading it. It reads very easily and is very inspiring.”

Cancer of many types healed using the center part of the “Budwig diet”
Clifford Beckwith reported on the subject of flax oil/cottage cheese and many cancer healings: ”In the vast majority of cases we've known about there has been apparent recovery. Where it has not been successful those with cancer have not used enough in the first place, or switched to flax flakes or capsules... Where chemo and/or radiation has been abandoned or not used, results have been far more favorable, virtually 95% where the oil is used properly.” You can read about many observed successes and cancer healing testimonials here.

30 tablespoons of flax and a miracle
by L M, reporting to the cancercured list, March 2001
”My uncle was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer gleason of 10, or stage IV, 1 1/2 months ago, with mets to the bones. He was in extreme pain at the time, and refused all conventional treatment. He was given three months to live. Three weeks ago, he started on flax oil/cottage cheese at the rate of 30 tablespoons of flax oil per day with about 5 cups of cottage cheese. I know this sounds like a lot, but he did it, and kept it down. Basically he went on a flax oil/cottage cheese fast i.e., his only nutrition was flax oil and cottage cheese. Just want to say, that his pain disappeared in 3 days, and yesterday the ct scan showed no hot spots, and his PSA dropped from 220 3 weeks ago to 1.1 yesterday, his doctor is "bewildered", and has declared him "cancer free"... He dares all of you to proceed with his regimen of 30 tblspns of flax oil per day, if you want to get results.” (Nota bene: Dr. Vincent Gammill MD of natural-oncology.org reports that he was unable to receive confirmation of the above healing.)
Note: Dr. Johanna Budwig’s flax oil plus cottage cheese protocol combines much raw food with flax oil plus cottage cheese to provide the necessary ”spark plugs” for cells to optimally detoxify and function. Flax oil is the richest source of omega-3 acids of all plant oils (100g of oil contain 72g of polyunsaturated fatty acids, 54g of which are omega-3 acids). It is combined with protein to allow the highly unsaturated fatty acids to become water-soluble, thus bypassing the need for a (often) diseased liver to break down the unsatured fat by its own efforts. Quote: ”The lipotropic protein connections, e.g. Cystein, as they are found in ... cottage cheese or nuts are able to make water-soluble the ...highly unsaturated fatty acids in seed oils. And that is what matters. When you mix together ... cottage cheese and linseed oil in your blender the fat becomes water-soluble” and thereby immediately available for use by the body. My personal opinion is that Dr. Budwig’s protocol can be a true life-saver for people with serious and less serious ill-health but may not be optimal in the long term for a healthy person considering the continual inclusion of animal protein in the diet.
