This past month we have been reflecting on how many things we have to be thankful for. November 23, 2001 Arthur passed his 7-year mark for being cancer free without drugs, surgery or chemo/radiation. We are so thankful every day that we can share this knowledge with others. God has blessed us so much.

I spoke to a friend this week who was undergoing medical testing, biopsies, scans and scopes. I tried to explain how her body was a self-healing body, and given the right nutrients and conditions, her body could actually heal itself. She told me that the doctors had said that she would likely have to go on prednisone. Now that she had begun with the medical testing, she was hesitant to try something different. The question I asked her was “Does your body have a prednisone deficiency?”

She said “No”, but she was content to go the drug route. Poor lady!

Each week we receive a “Health Tip” from Dr. George Malkmus at Hallelujah Acres. Here is part of a great one:


“Almost 15 years ago, in 1987, I wrote a book titled “Why Christians Get Sick.” (Today, over a quarter-million copies are in print.) In chapter 5 of that book was titled DRUGS AND THE MEDICAL PROFESSION. Following are a few quotes from this chapter:

“We live in a drug-oriented society! Our water is drugged with chlorine and fluoride … our foods have been drugged with some 7,000 different chemicals… Then when we get sick from the drugs in our drinking water and taking devitalized, drugged, so-called food substances into our body, we call the medical doctor. The medical doctor, a doctor licensed to practice the prescribing of drugs, writes a prescription for some more drugs… The sick person, whose sickness may quite possibly be a drug reaction from the drugged water and food, then takes these additional drugs, supposedly to cure his illness…”

All drugs containing Phenylpropanolamine are being recalled. You may want to try calling the 800 number listed on most drug boxes and inquire about a REFUND.

Please read this CAREFULLY, as I know that some of you may USE some of these drugs (Alka Seltzer Plus for one) Also, please pass this on to everyone you know. STOP TAKING anything containing this ingredient. It has been linked to increased hemorrhagic stroke (bleeding in brain) among women ages 18-49 in the three days after starting use of medication. Problems were not found in men, but the FDA recommended that everyone (even children) seek alternative medicine.

  • Triaminic DM Cough Relief
  • Triaminic Expectorant Chest & Head Congestion
  • Triaminic Syrup Cold & Allergy
  • Triaminic Triaminicol Cold & Cough

…I just found and called the 800# on a container of Triaminic and they informed me that they are voluntarily recalling the following medicines because of a certain ingredient that is causing strokes and seizures in children:

  • Orange 3D Cold & Allergy Cherry (Pink)
  • 3D Cold & Cough Berry
  • 3D Cough Relief
  • Yellow 3D Expectorant

They are asking you to call them at 800-548-3708 with the lot number on the box so they can send you postage for you to send it back to them, and they will also issue you a refund.

If you know of anyone else with small children, PLEASE PASS THIS ON. THIS IS SERIOUS STUFF.


“the Greatest Drug Free Alternative

By Gene Blasingame

Did you ever feel like you were snake bit? Well, you know it when you are, because it hurts. On Saturday, March 8, 1997 I was being very obedient. I was told that there was a lot of yard work that needed done. I didn’t even go into the office like normal, but got right up on Saturday morning and started to work in the yard. At 3:45 PM I found a copperhead in the back part of the yard. Somehow I managed to let it bite me on the first joint of the index finger on the left hand. I could actually feel the venom quickly pumping into the finger. I grabbed the snake and pulled him off my finger. As his fang slid across the top of my finger it slit it open just like a razor blade. I caught the snake and put it in a jar, then went inside the house and took an extra helping of Barleygreen and then we packed Barleygreen on the wound on my finger. I picked up the jar with the snake and headed down the road to the hospital emergency room.

After arriving at the emergency room with snake in hand I received quick attention. I didn’t even have to fill out all of that paperwork. The doctor on duty immediately had Dr. R. K. Smith, who is retired, but a snake expert, called to come in. They started an IV of saline solution, gave me a tetanus shot, then asked what was that green stuff on my finger. I explained that it was Barleygreen, and they were relieved that it was not a fungus growing on my finger. Dr. Smith arrived and had them start four vials of antivenin serum. It was then explained to me that it was very possible that it could stop my heart and/or lungs, but don’t worry because they had adrenaline and some type of steroids ready in case this happened.

In a matter of fact voice we were told that this was not life threatening, but I would probably lose my finger. What? I type for a living and this would not be good.

They immediately hooked me up to a monitor and my blood pressure started out at 140/81. It worked its way up to 156/88 by 7:00 PM. I then was taken to a room for overnight observation.

My finger and hand were swollen and they marked the finger and hand and measured it every hour. I missed dinner so Pat went to the store and brought fresh fruit and vegetables enough for dinner and breakfast the next morning. I wanted to eat correctly since my body was fighting both the venom and the serum.

At 4:30 AM the finger was actually ½ cm smaller than the previous measurement which was around 2:00 AM and my blood pressure was now 128/65 and my pulse was 64. Since we started taking Barleygreen in May of 1996 I wanted to be really healthy and have started jogging and exercising on a regular basis as well as eating healthier.

Dr. Smith arrived at the hospital at about 2:30 PM on Sunday afternoon and was very pleased that the swelling was going down. He stated that I had no restrictions on my activities or jogging, but that I could expect a severe rash as a reaction to the antivenin serum. There had only been two other people that did not have a reaction to the serum in the history of snakebites. I would need to contact him or my regular doctor for a special drug that would take care of the rash which could occur anytime from now up to the next three weeks.

I left the hospital at 3:00 PM, went home, cleaned up, went out for a good healthy meal, and was at church for the 6:00 PM service. I received a lot of attention. Not very many people had seen a real snake bite. After getting home I put more Barleygreen on the snakebite area and left it on my finger all night. The next morning the snakebite would was completely healed over. The hand and finger were still swollen, but work had to go on. Everything was also sore to the touch. I left work a little bit early so that I would have time to jog before I went to church for a meeting. I started out slow, but had no ill effects so I ended up jogging my normal 4-½ miles. To my surprise when I was through jogging all the swelling and soreness were gone from my hand and finger.

We later read in a study Pat was taking that the lungs are used by the body as a purifier and filter. The wolf and other wild animals if bitten by a poisonous snake, or if they ingest poison run as fast as they can in order to relieve their body of the poison through their lungs. This is their only chance of survival. The three weeks are up and I ended up with two small fever blisters and was able to type this record with all my fingers. Thank You Lord!

Thanks to Gene Blasingame for letting us share his story!

This testimony shows the importance of maintaining a strong immune system because you never know what might STRIKE next!


On Monday night 10/15/01 & 10/22/01 well known Registered Microbiologist, Larry Wayne Harris, RM (A.A.M.), was the guest speaker on WorldWide Christian Radio (WWCR). As part of a common sense, first line of defense against Anthrax, Biological and Chemical Warfare attacks, Mr. Harris highly recommended SOLUTIONS-4-YOU.

Their main product, Ultra-Safe Solution, was highly recommended as a great emulsifying pre-wash botanical cleanser in case of an attack. Mr. Harris suggested that everyone should have an ample supply of product on hand in the car, at home and work to use as a body wash in case of exposure.

Please check out Ultra-Safe Solution here or call our friend Paul at Solutions4You to order. Tell him we sent you.

Have a safe and blessed Christmas!
