"I wish it could all go to HELL!"
My dad was sick. VERY sick. Several years ago, he had been diagnosed with cancer.
We had left yet another doctor's appointment and I was taking him home.
While driving on a winding country road, we passed a large tobacco field.
My father looked out the passenger window and SCREAMED, "I wish it could all go to HELL!"
Dad had been a smoker. He had quit well over twenty years ago. But the damage had been done.
He now had difficulty breathing and had been on oxygen for eight years.
There were also green oxygen tanks in the house, in case the power went out.
No longer able to work, my father STRUGGLED to do the things we take for granted, such as get out of a chair or go to the bathroom.
What hurt him the most was not being able to play with his grandchildren.
Eventually, he could not walk up the stairs to his bedroom. So he started sleeping downstairs in the den on the couch.
Before too long, they replaced that couch with a hospital bed. A Hospice nurse was there now too.
One day Mom was in the kitchen. All of a sudden, she heard Dad GASPING for air.
She ran into the den and saw him STARING at the ceiling.
She yelled, "Breathe, Paul! BREATHE!"
The next thing she knew, my dad was gone.
Early that evening, I received a phone call from my mother.
"I guess you know why I'm calling."
"Why?" I replied, though I already knew the answer.
"Your father has passed away."
In high school, my dad was an All-American football player.
He took his health for granted. He never DREAMED he would be sick and disabled one day.
Do you think the same way about your health?
Here is the rest of the story...
When I was in college, my grandfather died of cancer. After eight months of chemotherapy and Hospice, he passed away in his home.
I was there the morning they took away his lifeless body.
A few years later, a friend of mine died of leukemia when he was only thirty-two years old. A high school math teacher and baseball coach, he left behind a wife who was eight months pregnant.
Then after being hooked up to an oxygen machine for eight years, my father died of cancer.
He needed help for the SIMPLEST of things, such as getting out of his chair or going to the bathroom.
Unable to work or play with his grandchildren, my dad was MISERABLE in what should have been his golden years.
After these experiences, I decided I did NOT want to end up like that.
How I Discovered Nutrition Matters
I have a good friend named Janice Gravely. By all rights, she should be pushing up daisies.
In fact her health was SO bad, her family considered getting a full-time nurse.
Then one day a friend educated her about health and nutrition.
So Mrs. Gravely changed her diet and added BarleyLife® to her daily routine.
Gradually, she turned her health around - and never did get that nurse.
Today she is ninety-six years old and still going STRONG. This is her story.
Janice Gravely is a UCLA graduate and an international speaker. She is author of the book, "Won't Somebody Help Me!", a biography of how she miraculously crash landed, after her husband died at the controls of their airplane - one she did not know how to fly. Her testimony was on Paul Harvey and seen in Reader's Digest, Guideposts, as well as other publications.

How My Wife Discovered Nutrition Matters
In 1991, through a routine eye exam, my wife discovered she was nearsighted. She had to wear glasses to drive a car, go to a movie or watch a ball game.
A few years later, after we were married, Laura started juicing and taking BarleyLife®.
When she took off her glasses, to her SURPRISE, she could perfectly see.
It’s been eighteen years now and she still does not need to wear glasses.

P.S. Because of what happened to my dad, on a regular basis I read about health and nutrition.
I was SHOCKED to discover, according to recent statistics, 7 out of 10 people will die of heart disease, cancer or stroke. You may be one of them.
