Living Foods Success Stories
by Brenda Cobb
People often ask me if I believe that eating Living Foods will help them. These people are facing all types of symptoms and disease including but not limited to chronic fatigue, obesity, depression, diabetes, hypoglycemia, candidiasis, infertility, impotence, allergies, migraine headaches, digestive disorders, sleep disorders, PMS, arthritis, addictions, cancer, HIV, AIDS and much more. My answer is always the same. Everyone can benefit from a healthy lifestyle.
Most people think that symptoms and disease comes from some mysterious place "outside" the body. Most people also mistakenly believe that something like the common cold is something that you "catch". When asked what causes disease, most people will answer that germs, bacteria and other "bad guys" are the culprits. This is the main idea behind modern medicine, but when studying this healthy lifestyle we take a closer look at the real nature of disease, and we learn that the modern concept of disease is actually far removed from the real nature and cause of disease. Disease doesn’t come from outside, it comes from the inside.
All disease is caused by the same two reasons, toxicity of the body and deficiency of the body. So it doesn’t matter what disease or symptom you are facing as long as your body is toxic and deficient you can’t get well. Disease produces symptoms that act as warnings. Modern medicine attempts to "cure" the disease by suppressing these incredibly valuable symptoms and warnings. Many times the symptoms only get stronger and we become immune to the treatment and the drugs. Usually more treatments and even stronger drugs are given, but in order to regain health, the cause (toxicity and deficiency) must be removed.
There is a great deal of difference between disease and symptoms due to the fact that a symptom is something that has been created from disease of long standing. These symptoms are warnings. For example, when there is something wrong with the stomach, naturally there is going to be some kind of symptom which can manifest in various forms, because the stomach plays a vital role in absorbing nutrients that are used as fuel by the body. You could have serious, painful headaches, or dizziness, or back pains, or fatigue and depression, vomiting, pains in the stomach, pains in the chest, mental disturbances and so forth. Actually, there exist over one-hundred symptoms. These symptoms generally come from deficiencies. Most deficiencies come from conditions in which the food is not digested. That means that the flow of energy that is needed for the body to function has been blocked and that is why symptoms can change from one form to another. Symptoms affect the weakest part of the body, and people have different constitutions and weak spots. Oftentimes symptoms can go away for a short period or even a long period of time. Sometimes the symptoms change or come back after long periods. So you never know where or when it is going to hit you.
Everyone that I have had the opportunity of working with and teaching about the Living Foods has had wonderful results when they practice what they learn. Like anything in life you get out of it what you put into it. Here are a few examples of what students have to say after completing the ten day healthy lifestyle course.
Donna Boyd Smith says "Brenda Cobb's healthy lifestyle course has changed my life. Before I attended the program, I had concerns about my health and I knew that my diet was contributing to my feeling bad. I experienced fatigue, depression, headaches, and weight gain, and was concerned about my genetic link to heart disease and diabetes. Attending this program has given me a much better understanding of my body and the importance of diet and cleansing for obtaining and maintaining good health. This program has given me a clear picture of the foods I should be eating and avoiding, the importance of proper food combining, how to prepare foods to obtain optimum nutrition, and a roadmap for transitioning the diet into my current lifestyle."
Kathryn Cook is 65 years old and has this to say, "Brenda Cobb's healthy lifestyle course has opened up an exciting way to greater health for me. The foods are nourishing energizing, delicious and beautiful. I can’t believe the difference in my body and how my energy level has increased after several days of being on living foods. My thinking is clearer, and I feel more connected to everything around me. No more tired feelings in the morning, and by blood pressure has dropped 20 points. I am reminded of a Bible quote when I think of The Living Foods Lifestyle®, Genesis 1:29 God said, "I give you every seed bearing plant on the face of the earth, and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be your food."
John O’Neal, a professional counselor and full-time student at the University of Georgia where he is working on his 2nd Masters in Clinical Social Work says, “My blood pressure, cholesterol, and triglycerides were going out the roof. I was looking at either a heart attack or a stroke when I took Brenda Cobb's healthy lifestyle course. It was for my health that I did this program, but it also has made a big difference in my appearance. My grey eyes turned blue, my hair changed from gray back to brown, I lost 23 pounds in only 3 weeks, and my waist went from 36 inches to 32 inches.
“My doctors have commented that I have fewer lines in my face, that I look twenty years younger, and they have never seen me healthier. I have stopped snoring so now my wife and I can sleep in the same bed. Our love life has been greatly enhanced. My doctors have even started referring their patients to me to talk to them about the benefits of Living Foods because it has made such a difference in my life. I started the Brenda Cobb's healthy lifestyle course in January and I haven’t been sick even one day since I changed my eating habits. People that have known me for years stop and ask me what I’m doing because the outside differences are so visible. Many of my friends have signed up for the program because of the positive changes they have seen in me. This has been the most transformational thing I have ever done. I had no idea how many things were wired directly to my diet. This has truly changed my life."
Patricia Groen says, "Surprisingly, from the moment I started eating these foods, my body responded by bringing me back every day for more. I actually began to feel calm, less easily irritated, I have clearer insight and retrospection. The process of preparation and the tender loving care required to do so, has given me a great respect for the food, and a greater respect for myself for caring about what I put into my body. I feel a sense of pride in my effort. After only 10 days I already have a feeling of general well-being. Positive thoughts go hand in hand with this physical change of diet."
Laura Vaughn says, "This class is what I have been looking for all of my life. I never realized I was missing so much energy until I took this course. I am sleeping less and I go all day long without stopping. I have no interest in T.V. anymore! I know the only reason I ever watched it was because I was too tired to do anything else. I feel absolutely squeaky clean inside and out. I take more time for myself. I am calmer, more positive and clearer than I have ever been. My father died in 1974 at the age of 59 from colon cancer that went into his liver. I was 26 years old. I thought then surely there is something that could have been done for him. I knew this was so in my heart. Little did I know then that that thought would be the seed beginning my quest to learn all I could about health and healing as it was intended to be from creation. Now, 26 years later, I have found the answer. This is it…Brenda Cobb's ten day healthy lifestyle course. I feel like one of those MasterCard ads: Baseball game….X dollars, hotdog & coke…X dollars, time with your son…Priceless. Brenda Cobb's healthy lifestyle course…X dollars, equipment to set up this lifestyle…X dollars, healing results…PRICELESS. For me, these healing results included greater clarity, no more road rage (I’ve even let a few people into traffic ahead of me!!!), boundless energy from 7 AM to 12 PM (I never got up before 8:30AM), a squeaky clean body, inside and out, and a foundation for a healthy, positive lifestyle."
Priscilla Pontius, a registered nurse, says, "For over 30 years I have worked in the field of traditional medicine. I have seen and worked with almost every illness and injury that can happen to people. I have become increasingly disillusioned with the inability of modern medicine to preserve health. I view most treatments now as tinkering with symptoms. I’ve seen my own sister take her last breath due to breast cancer and the inability of even a bone marrow transplant to halt the disease. I have seen people be given a ‘clean bill of health’ in a physical examination only to fall dead of a massive heart attack two weeks later. I see the combinations of potions and drugs that people take in their later years and watch as these poisons rob them of yet one critical function after another.
"I have struggled with the medical profession taking a nonchalant posture about my own debilitating digestive difficulties. I have been on a journey over the past three years to find a better way for myself in the realms of my own personal health and my career. This course has given me monumental amounts of information and motivation to pursue the truth. I convince slowly and with deliberation; but once I am fully behind a concept I am a living example and influence a great number of people. I believe Brenda Cobb's ten day healthy lifestyle course has provided me with career and health direction for my life."
These are just a few of the many examples of how Brenda Cobb's healthy lifestyle course has changed the lives of so many people. Is there any wonder why I love my job so much. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that this way of eating and living is genuinely helping people, and that is the greatest reward that I have ever gotten through my work... Not only has this lifestyle worked for me, healing my own breast and cervical cancer and helping me to lose over 70 pounds, it is working for all those who have embraced it.
