Sid: My guest Cherie Calbom and Cherie the last time you were on the show you caused a sensation. Do you remember the commercial we did with Juice Lady in the Box? Of course she’s affectionately known as the Juice Lady. For those that aren’t that familiar with her you had fibromyalgia you had several chronic fatigue syndromes there was no hope for you. The doctors pretty much gave up, but you did something that you were directed to by God that changed your life in a short period of time. Tell me your worst shape you were in and what happened?

Cherie: I was in terrible shape, I had to quit work, I felt like I had the flu all of the time, swollen glands, body ached all over, could barely walk around the house, I couldn’t go for a walk outside and no hope from the doctors. I prayed and prayed and prayed and said “Lord please show me what to do there’s got to be a way out of this.” And He directed me to juicing vegetables and changing my diet. When I started reading about a healthy diet I realized I was way off track, I loved junk food and fast food and I didn’t like vegetables.

Sid: (Laughing) You sound like the typical American.

Cherie: I do don’t I (Laughing)? Just running through the fast lane of life and fast food that was me so I bought my first juicer, went on a five day juice fast, on day number 5 my body expelled a tumor the size of a golf ball and that got my attention. And I thought maybe I’ll just turn the corner and tomorrow I’ll be totally well.

Sid: But wait a second I just don’t understand how things can happen you know by just juicing so fast I would think that it would take several years for something like that to happen.

Cherie: (Laughing) you know it is so amazing having now worked with a nutritionist for many years I have seen amazing things happen in a short time. For some people it does take a way while for things to turn around it just depends on how sick people are, how old they, how toxic they are and so forth. But I was young and for me my body responded very very quickly. And this was a path that God showed me that I could take for healing because now what I know as a nutritionist and with all of my science background if you give people the right materials to heal the body will heal, it will do what God designed it to do.

Sid: How long did it take you to get better?

Cherie: Well after that juice fast it took me about 3 months. I kept juicing, I ate whole foods, organic foods, mostly vegetables for the summer I’m not vegan now but I did that program and in three months I woke up one morning and said “Wow somebody gave me a new body in the middle of the night I felt like jogging and I did.”

Sid: I’ll tell you what you’re begging a question. “Why do I have to fool around with juicing why don’t I just have 5 fruits and 5 vegetables like someone said once and that’s done?” Why don’t you just do that why is juicing better or is it equivalent?

Cherie: Juicing is superior in many ways because there is several things it is broken down so well your body can absorb it very very quickly it goes right into you system because it doesn’t have the fiber to stop or to slow it down with digestion. Fiber is good don’t get me wrong and we want to eat a high fiber diet but juicing is just fabulous for getting right into your system. When people are ill digestion often is off, they don’t digest food well they don’t even digest their fruits and vegetables well. And so this gets it right into your system it’s like a pre-digestive food and you got all of those antioxidants, biophotons, vitamins, minerals, enzymes going right into your body right into your cells bringing that healing life, and this is live food. And we are told in the scripture “Choose life and I set before you life and death choose life.” And then too, number 2 “We don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables science has proven that all over the world and we should have 7 to 9 maybe 13 servings depending on the research you see and which universities. But we don’t do it this is a way to get a maximum amount easily. So I take a big bowl and juice it up and I could never chew up all of that in the morning you know.

Sid: I probably could chew it all but my refrigerator would be filled with that stuff.

Cherie: (Chuckling.)

Sid: Anyway you talk about marrying the natural and the supernatural what do you mean by that?

Cherie: Partnership with God that’s how I see it we do our part He has done His part and continuing to do His part all the time. The Lord has been showing me more and more how we do that in that we stand in His word. And recently I have been seeing that more and more and how we apply it His word to our hearts like a poultice on your chest. You know the old fashion poultices my grandmother used one all the time when anybody got sick. And I saw it the other day in the Spirit apply that scripture to your heart just like a poultice; lay it on there, “By His stripes you are healed; He sent His word and healed them.” Just go over all of the scriptures you can find, get on the internet pull them off print them out apply them to your heart, strengthen your spirit…

Sid: Okay wait a second Cherie if we have the powerful word which you agree and I agree why even fool around with nutrition.

Cherie: Yo, you know in here I’m so glad you asked that because people say that “Can’t I just go and get a miracle?” You know what if our diet has created our dis-ease in any way in our bodies God can heal us He can do an override I call it heal us miraculously but we’re going to go on eating our bad diet, our fast food, our junk food our things in packages and boxes devoid of nutrients we’re going to get sick again. But so often we need to partner with the Holy Spirit, we need to partner with the Father with Jesus. We need to do our part and to eat the real live whole foods that He gave us that He put on this earth for our health and healing. Scripture says He gave us every herb, He gave us these plants they are for our healing and He did not give us bonbons, He did not give us chips and dips, He did not give us fast foods and burgers and fresh fries those are man made…

Sid: I haven’t read any of that in the Bible (Laughing.)

Cherie: (Laughing) It’s not there, right?

Sid: Cherie tell me you did it the last time you were on the air but I feel it’s so important tell me about the vision that you had from God about the battlefield.

Cherie: I saw it so clearly years ago when I was in a prayer meeting for healing that I just left that room in the Spirit and I saw God’s soldiers and He gave me a vision of His people His army. And so many of them lying on the battlefield with their armor askewed their swords and their shields lying at their side and they were in pain. There were labels written across their bodies like cancer, diabetes, heart disease, fibromyalgia, AMS, lupus, scleroderma, rheumatoid arthritis on and on it went. I saw these soldiers not only in their own pain but the demonic forces really beating them up punching them and kicking them because they were down because they couldn’t stand. And the Lord said “Cherie I want you to go back to school, get a graduate degree in nutrition and I want you to teach my people because they are perishing for lack of knowledge.” And isn’t it true on every level Satan has tried to pervert what God has given us and he’s perverted our food on top of everything else. And I was seeing on that day “What was the quickest way to destroy an army if you could do it?” Poison them they would all just drop over you wouldn’t even have to do much of a fight if you poisoned the entire army with their water, their drinks, their food well that is what the enemy is doing to us with all of this adulterated food, man made stuff, things in boxes and bags and fast food and junk food and cans and sodas and on and on it goes. We’ve got poison everywhere we turn in our food supply and God is saying “Come out from among them my people and be separate choose a holy, whole. Holy means whole body, soul and spirit, choose a holy way of life, choose a holy way of eating, be My disciplined people and choose the real food whole food that God gave us.

Sid: Now you mentioned something that is going to upset a few people, I know in my control room it’s going to upset them. What happens from too much diet soda?

Cherie: Diet soda is a scary thing and I had been doing research on that more and more all the time. It’s laced with a diet sweetener and usually it’s aspartame, we know it as NutraSweet. The CDC did studies and just kept track they don’t really promote this but they just tracked it if you do your research that brain tumors increased hugely the bar graph went way up a couple of years after diet soda’s came on the market but there’s all sorts of research showing that when you drink diet sodas also it affects your metabolism and you crave more sweets and more refined carbs. So you go from more things like pasta and pizza and hamburgers.

Sid: So could you say Cherie that diet soda makes you fatter because of that?

Cherie: It makes you better?

Sid: It makes you fatter.

Cherie: It makes you worse.

Sid: F-a-t-t-e-r.

Cherie: Fatter, oh fatter. Yes it does and yes and they’ve proven that in scientific studies it contributes to obesity, it contributes to a weight gain. Even if you are not obese it contributes to fat being deposited around the mid section which is the worst place to gain weight it increases your sweet tooth…

Sid: What about regular soda is that bad for us?

Cherie: That is really bad too?

Sid: Oh wait a second (Laughing.)

Cherie: They’re put at the top.

Sid: Okay why is it bad, tell me?

Cherie: It’s got a huge amount of sugar many…

Sid: What’s wrong with sugar?

Cherie: Sugar is an inflammation and anti… it’s an inflammatory excuse me; very inflammatory substance and that is what my new book the anti-inflammatory diet is all about. Inflammation is at the root of every disease there is and sugar is one of the number 1 things that contributes to inflammation in the body that contributes to everything like heart disease, cancer and diabetes, and MS, and scleroderma, and lupus and on and on, RA, rheumatoid arthritis, you can name if tall it all. Inflammation is at the base and sugar is one of the top inflammatory substances. I say to everyone get that sugar out of your diet but soda’s also got chemicals and dyes and all of that stuff. And there’s a new study out showing that junk food with all of that stuff in it is a number 1 contributor in inflammation. And so at the top of everybody’s list in science right now sodas are coming in right at the top both diet soda and regular soda. And it is subtly day by day destroying our health. Young people think that they can get away with it because you know when you’re young you think that you’ll live forever right?

Sid: (Laughing) of course.

Cherie: You think you’ll always going to be healthy and boom one day it all catches up with you and your body says “I’ve had enough of this you know and it’s getting really sick.”

Sid: Now you made a statement and it’s worth me repeating. You said inflammation is at the root of nearly every disease, so therefore my logical mind says “If we can get rid of the foods that cause inflammation and eat the food that work in a positive way you get rid of the roots of most diseases and then people won’t have to pray to be healed.” You know what it reminds me of Cherie? There might be a 400 pound man that comes up to me for me to lay hands on him to heal his back. And I know God will heal his back but I also know in 30 days he’ll be back to have his back healed.

Cherie: Yes. That is absolutely right and it’s going on all the time. My father was a healing evangelist I grew up in this kind of ministry and seeing people even as a little tiny kid seeing people coming back over and over over again. And that’s because we’re doing the things that make our bodies sick. And so they can’t stay well because we’re pouring into them things that contribute to inflammation and inflammation causes sicknesses…

Sid: Cherie are many people in the world do they have inflammation or is this a small percentage of people?

Cherie: It’s huge and it’s world wide; we’ve exported our bad foods all over the world you can go just about anywhere except maybe some little remote areas and you’ll find golden arches, you’ll find fast food restaurants, you’ll find pop, soda pop everywhere. You’ll find it all over so we’ve exported our bad poisons foods all over the world. And we have sick people all over the world with inflammation.

Sid: You know what I’m thinking just like that vision that you had of the battlefield we are praying for God to heal us and then destroying our body right after He heals us or even before He heals us. We’re like shooting ourselves in the foot. Now we have your 4 books one is brand new “The Anti-Inflammation Diet.” And the “28 Days to Restore Your Body and Feel Great.” Now that sounds like a short period of time Cherie 28 days to restore your body and feel great. You talk about losing weight, increasing energy, look and feel younger in 28 days. Is this really working with people now?

Cherie: It is really working for sure and I’ve proven it over and over again as a nutritionist and all of the people I’ve helped in counseling and different programs I’ve seen it over and over again. As I’ve talked with various holistic doctors they have told me that is about the right amount time for things to really start turning around 30 days is the amount of time. So we’re almost there with our 28 day program 4 weeks and 30 days is the amount of time it takes for your cells to begin to really turn over and for your body to really begin to change. So I always say to people “Don’t give up.” We do something a week or two we’re such an instant society we want things immediately but I say “Don’t give up give it 30 days and you should see some positive changes in your body.”

Sid: Now you tie in that 20 as you say the marriage between the supernatural and the natural you tie it in you made exclusively for our Mishpochah that’s Hebrew word that means family “The 28 Day Journey to Wholeness Devotional” tell me about that.

Cherie: Yes I’m so excited about the devotional because it goes with your 28 day food program.

Sid: Right.

Cherie: And what I’ve see was so many people I’ve worked with your spirit needs to be strengthened so many people need to be beaten down and discouraged and hopeless and nothing is ever going to change for them they’re not going to have the energy and the vibrant health that they’ve longed for and they’ve prayed for. And so I realized that day by day you need the word of God and I have in the devotional not only a teaching each day a short teaching and it’s all around the spiritual, the biblical, the scriptures but also a declaration because I feel each day with our mouth we need to speak the word. “I declare today and I have something for people to declare every single day and a prayer to close with. And I realized that people need their spirit built up and they have the willpower.

Sid: And you have the recipes and it’s not just juicing its regular food and juicing.

Cherie: Yes.

Sid: But you have 2 more books and a couple of them really intrigued well all of them intrigued me but “Remedies for Stress and Adrenal Fatigue, Remedies for Asthma and Allergies.” It’s the most amazing thing God gave us a body He did not want us to have lack of energy, He didn’t want us to have pain, He didn’t want us to have heart disease, He didn’t want us to have diabetes. He wanted us to live life to the fullest! And I find, I’ve read in your notes Cherie, that many people that get a hold of your books they’ve been praying and even fasting “God help me.” And God has directed them….

Speaking of investment I just back from Israel and I spoke before a group of Bishops at their meeting and there was a Bishop there from outer Mongolia. I’d heard about a Mongolia, Cherie I didn’t know where it was according to my map I could see that it’s north of Tibet, China but I didn’t realize it. This guy was in an auto accident and his back was broke 5 places and he was in constant pain for 14 years. The prognosis was he’d end up in a wheelchair and one minute with God was all that was necessary. He turns on our TV show and this is the thing that is so exciting to me our TV show is in outer Mongolia and I don’t even know where it is. So he tunes in our television show and I have a word of knowledge he’s sovereignly healed, he’s been free for over a year pain free he’s in full time ministry….when we come back I want to learn more about this insidious thing that is called inflammation. Most people don’t know what the word means I’ll be right back.
