What Is On My Mind…

I’m deeply wounded and baffled to the point of anger. Yes. I’m angry. 

I am angry because people are diseased and poor. They are sick and stressed because they cannot afford to purchase the medications prescribed by their doctors. 

I am angry because these drug medications are not a cure, anyway. They treat. They cover up symptoms; but they do not cure. In fact, they even bring more sickness and disease, because they poison the blood. Listen to this:

“People need to be taught that drugs do not cure disease. It is true that they sometimes afford present relief, and the patient appears to recover as the result of their use; this is because nature has sufficient vital force to expel the poison and to correct the conditions that caused the disease. Health is recovered in spite of the drug. But in most cases the drug only changes the form and location of the disease. Often the effect of the poison seems to be overcome for a time, but the results remain in the system and work great harm at some later period. {MH 126.3}

“By the use of poisonous drugs, many bring upon themselves lifelong illness, and many lives are lost that might be saved by the use of natural methods of healing. The poisons contained in many so-called remedies create habits and appetites that mean ruin to both soul and body. Many of the popular nostrums called patent medicines, and even some of the drugs dispensed by physicians, act a part in laying the foundation of the liquor habit, the opium habit, the morphine habit, that are so terrible a curse to society.”  {MH 126.4} 

That was written over a hundred years ago. Nevertheless, you are convinced that these drugs are necessary and believe as you have been told that they are specially designed to manage your condition. Do you really want to manage or just treat your condition? Don’t you want to be well? Who wants to be sick or diseased at all?

Those who cannot afford drug medications suffer; and many die. There is a solution. Listen to this:

“The only hope of better things is in the education of the people in right principles. Let physicians teach the people that restorative power is not in drugs, but in nature. Disease is an effort of nature to free the system from conditions that result from a violation of the laws of health. In case of sickness, the cause should be ascertained. Unhealthful conditions should be changed, wrong habits corrected. Then nature is to be assisted in her effort to expel impurities and to re-establish right conditions in the system.” {MH 127.1}

Nevertheless, souls are suffering, while believing lies about disease and sickness. Thus they just “do what they are told.” This is very heartbreaking. 

Especially heartbreaking and baffling is the reality that there are those who are sick and know, or at least have heard, how they can be well, but they do not want to make the lifestyle changes. I tell you lifestyle and not just diet, because the change that leads to the path of healing and life and life eternal requires a total lifestyle change. The way to health and healing involves a change in every aspect of the daily life: in all you eat, drink and do. Therefore, in all you do (O yes, I’m going there!), do to the glory of God.

This way of health and healing involves your mind, eyes, ears, nose, mouth, hands and feet. There are simple affordable practical applications that if one chooses to make the life- saving changes, they may receive health and healing. They may be made whole. They may be in health and prosper just as their soul prospers. Read 3 John 2.

If you are sick and you do not know what to do or where to go, please, contact me. Allow me to be your wellness lifestyle coach. I am going to tell you how to have health spiritually, physically, mentally. Real talk. The truth. Nothing but the truth. What you choose to do with the truth is your choice.

I personally know many who embrace physical and mental healing and think they can do without the spiritual healing. But understand this. It is impossible to have true healing physically and mentally, without being spiritually healthy. You may have had a checkup and were told you are in great health. But given the improper environment for too long, no longer will the body heal itself as God created it to do. 

Sickness will come. Disease will come. Tragedy will come. You may just trip and fall, and find that your body will be able to take no more. All the years of abuse to the body inside and out become known by the symptoms, even though they may have been dormant during previous medications or treatment.

The good news is in God’s natural healing plan. Did you know you can drink the juice from green beans and have your insulin daily? Yes, healing involves more than this for your body to heal itself. But if you start by faithfully giving your body the proper environment, it will do what the Creator God created it to. When we eat and drink and live according to His will—His Word—the body then becomes a healing environment.

True healing comes from God.  But you must allow God’s hand to be in control from start to finish.

If you don’t know God or have faith in Him, and if you don’t know His love nor His way, you can learn. Although God allows the consequences of one’s choices, it is not His will that you be sick and diseased spiritually, physically or mentally. As you daily choose God’s lifestyle for you, your love for Him and your faith in Christ will grow. And your wellness lifestyle coach will have the faith enough for you. You will find that reaching your destination of health and healing spiritually, physically and mentally can be a reality.

Love Heals

Healing begins with putting your faith in God’s love for you. Go ahead. Test it. Try all the treatments you want. But until you add to your regimen that special ingredient—the prayer of faith—healing will not be complete. Instead, disease can stick around or seem to disappear only to resurge just at what may seem to be the worst of times for you and your family.

Here’s my very basic point. I recently treated a dry patch of skin with nightly applications of castor oil. I noticed that the dry patch lingered about a week without even a hint of going away. I wondered why, until I realized that I had not prayed about it. I thanked God for the reminder. Then I humbly asked for forgiveness and asked for healing. Within one day, I began experiencing drastic improvement. I kid you not.

It was amazing and very confirming that nothing should be attempted without prayer to our heavenly Father, who loves us and is tenderly affected by our needs. And then I found this statement that put it all together for me—for you.

“The love which Christ diffuses through the whole being is a vitalizing power. Every vital part—the brain, the heart, the nerves—it touches with healing. By it the highest energies of the being are roused to activity. It frees the soul from the guilt and sorrow, the anxiety and care, that crush the life forces. With it come serenity and composure. It implants in the soul, joy that nothing earthly can destroy,—joy in the Holy Spirit,—health-giving, life-giving joy. {MH 115.3}

“Our Saviour’s words, “Come unto Me, … and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28), are a prescription for the healing of physical, mental, and spiritual ills. Though men have brought suffering upon themselves by their own wrongdoing, He regards them with pity. In Him they may find help. He will do great things for those who trust in Him.” {MH 115.4}

Go ahead, begin your healing now with prayer. Dear heavenly Father, thank you for offering me a love that heals. I want it Lord and receive it in the way that you want it for me—be it physical, emotional, and/or spiritual. I trust your wisdom to do what is in my best interest and for my salvation. Thank you for hearing and answering, because I’m asking in the name of your Son, Jesus. Amen.

As you trust in the Savior, the one who created you, you will desire to modify your lifestyle for abundant living. For one, you will eat a healthy plant-based diet. You will drink only fresh water or herbal teas and only between meals, while avoiding all things harmful. You will walk in the fresh air for your daily sun bath. Exposing your face and hands (when possible) to absorb that sunlight, which helps the skin manufacture vitamin D. And vitamin D is essential to the health of the bones, the brain, blood pressure, and the body’s ability to maintain and regain vitality.

Finally, you will be determined to get good whole-body rest.
