“I was searching for wholesome treatments instead of chemotherapy and radiation,” says Hilario Fowler, a recent health guest at Hartland Lifestyle Center (HLC). Hilario had been struggling with pancreatic cancer and was looking for natural alternatives to treat it. He had undergone surgery to remove half of his pancreas, yet the cancer remained.

“Rabekah Rice, a young lady from my church, told me about Hartland Lifestyle Center, which is known for their treatments using lifestyle changes,” Hilario recounts. Rabekah is a midwifery student at Hartland College and has also been a student worker in the HLC. Through her encouragement, Hilario and his wife decided to become health guests and experience God’s healing methods for themselves.

“It exceeded my expectations, and the results were substantially greater than I expected!” he enthuses. “I gained more physical strength, and my spiritual walk was enhanced.” Hilario’s treatment plan at the HLC included hydrotherapy, poultices, and healthy cooking classes, all of which contributed to his improvement; yet, according to him, the best part was the fellowship. “I always looked forward for the brothers and sisters to fellowship with us. Their Christlike example taught me how we should really treat each other, and that was pivotal.”

Hilario’s wife, Ingeburg, was by his side the entire 17 days of the session and was a big part of his support team. She also learned many new skills to help her husband achieve his goals, especially in terms of cooking plant-based meals.

“My doctors saw a huge improvement when I returned!” he beams. “They even questioned whether my previous surgery was necessary or not.” A follow-up checkup showed that many of his vitals had improved. Although Hilario still has pancreatic cancer, his hope and faith in the Great Physician, Jesus Christ, are being strengthened as he continues to practice the lifestyle principles he learned at Hartland.

Hilario Fowler is a living witness who has not only seen and heard but also tasted the goodness of the Lord’s health principles. He wants you to know that your life, too, can be a testimony of how God works miraculously through His health message. “O, taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in Him.” Psalm 34:8.
