2. Ministry update from Mary Louise..Town Jaqua, Hallelujah Acres' Health Minister  

For several years I have contemplated the launching of a health ministry e-newsletter, and it seems the time to begin is now. With interest in the live food lifestyle increasing, I see the importance of sharing  healthy information that will benefit all.   It goes without saying that many people are experiencing personal health issues and are exploring natural solutions to address their problems. Standard medical practices are rightfully being examined for what they are in that they most often fall short of solving one's problem(s). The medical professioin approaches illness on a symptomatic basis: treat the symptoms and not the cause. In our book, this approach is not acceptable.   THE LIVING WAY is dedicated to eradicating health problems no matter what they may be. We do not want to learn how to live with sickness. We want to eliminate it! We believe in and have personally experienced the healing power of living foods. Our mission is to help others understand the importance of proper diet in the treatment of physical, emotional, and mental distress. Without a doubt, diet plays a pivotal role when it comes to wellness. I ask you, 'How healthy do you want to be?' The choice is up to you!   Presently there is a breaking away from traditional lifestyles that have proven harmful, if not deadly. There is an awakening taking place to the health risks inherent in the Standard American Diet (SAD). People are discovering that cooked, processed, fast, and animal-based foods just don't cut it. They are learning that the SAD is one of the greatest hoaxes perpetrated upon the American public. Much to our destruction, we have partaken of the world's diet and then shamelessly exported it throughout the world. America's consumption of corrupt, synthetic foods is measured by the countless victims who have succumbed to sickness, pain, fatigue, obesity or even death, because of this dastardly diet.   We of THE LIVING WAY are interested in living. We would rather be healthy than sick. It's that simple. Our commitment is to share the life message of hope and healing as we have learned it...the natural way.   THE LIVING WAY celebrated its tenth anniversary this year. On September 11, 1996, we turned our backs on the Standard American Diet and began eating right: whole, natural, raw foods. Our experience has been a lesson in true healing and vitality. We have never enjoyed such excellence of health since eating the living way.   While it has taken awhile for our health ministry to prosper here in Maine and elsewhere, we are happy to see meaningful fruit coming forth. A virtual raw revolution is taking place locally and across the country. Lives are being changed for the better as people discover the remarkable health benefits of live food. It does make a difference what you put into your mouth!   In an effort to help those who are now beginning to travel the living way, we take this opportunity to emphasize our commitment to encourage and support you in your journey toward superior health. With a new computer in place, I have begun to update our website so that it will be a reliable resource tool. While new postings take time, I will do my best to keep you up-to-date on what's happening on the health scene. Bookmark us and keep in touch with feedback that will help us help others. Your input is as important as ours.   In an effort to accommodate those who are interested in purchasing produce during the winter, we invite you to consider becoming a member of the SuperNatural Co-Op. We have been members of this Gardiner co-op for two years and find the experience worth the effort. Whereas a number of you have expressed interest in starting a co-op locally, we are presently unable to undertake such a project. Perhaps in time this goal will be realized. For now, however, we recommend becoming part of the SuperNatural Co-Op and gaining the experience of being part of a cooperative.   Speaking of co-opping, there are other locally-based produce suppliers: As the winter season progresses, we will keep you informed of produce availability from these suppliers. Those who are interested in purchasing will need to co-ordinate with us in the ordering, delivery, and pick up. A group effort is only effective if all actively participate.   Our radio program continues to be heard locally on WHMB, Waterville, 89.7FM in the Waterville area or as a live webcast. We know the hour is late for many of you to tune in, however, as the ministry grows we plan to archive our programs on our website in MP3 format. If you have computer skills that would help us toward this end, we welcome your help. For more details about our radio broadcast, visit   In closing, please remember that THE LIVING WAY is only one facet of Gertrude Ministries. As ministers of the word, we are happy to share the glad tidings of the kingdom with you which includes the health message. Yahshua came to give us life and life abundantly. It is our privilege to help you realize life to the fullest both naturally and spiritually. Feel free to ask for prayer or counsel concerning your needs no matter what they may be.   __________________________________________  
3. Buying tips and more  

HEMP on sale
As many of you know, we have been singing the praises of industrial hemp products for several years. Hemp is considered by many health experts to be the most nutritious plant on earth. It has an excellent balance of the all-important omega3's and 6's. Because of hemp's nutritionally high ratings, we have made it our primary source for EFAs. Without proper balance of omega3 and 6, the body cannot function properly. EFA deficiency can lead to serious illness and death. This being said,   NUTIVA hemp products are 20% off this month through SuperNatural Co-Op. Compare prices with your local health food store:   NUTIVA Hemp Protein Powder Org- 16oz./$9.24 NUTIVA Hempseed Oil, Org- 24oz./$11.70 NUTIVA Hemp Shakes (3 flavors)- 16oz./$12.29   Note: These sale prices are about 1/2 retail price  

Toilet Paper 80CT/$26.00
If you are looking for a good value on TP and would like your purchase to go to a worthy cause, call Ken Stevens (692-2128) at Set Free in Maine, 18 Lithgow St., Winslow: Tell him we sent you.
