Nigerians Urged to Eat for Healthy Life

Hallelujah Acres, a Christian health organization, has urged Nigerians to eat healthily by adopting proper diet and healthy lifestyle.

Speaking a seminar on Nutrition and Nourishment, the Chief Executive and President, Dr. Paul Malkmus said 70 percent of sicknesses come from what a person eats.

Noting that 70 per cent of sickness comes from animal products such as white sugar, white flour, artificial sweetness, caffeine, he stated: "God designed our bodies to be healthy. But every day, toxins, free radicals, artificial additives, pesticides and preservatives enter our body from the foods we eat and this depletes healthy cells and when this multiply, disease comes in."

Malkmus said God did not create humans to be sick but has given them every food they need to be healthy, strong and vibrant. Part of which include fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts among others.

Chief of Education and Training, Ann Malkmus, said diseases manifest when there is no relief, no balance, no cycle work and rest. She further advised that people should engage in exercise, relax and embrace diet plan adding that juicing vegetables and plant foods are major parts of the diet plan required to get nutrients into the bodies.

"Your digestive system only extracts 35 percent of nutrients in food, whereas when you juice the food, it is like an intravenous shot of nutrients, and you will absorb 92 percent of available nutrients, so juicing vegetables and plant foods will get nutrients into our bodies," stated.

She said the Hallelujah Diet product can help strengthen the body because it contains living foods designed to build cells in the body.

"This Hallelujah diet is made up of variety of supplements, including B12, oils, digestive enzymes, a cleansing product, and barley powder, which can help to restore the body back to normal."
