Biblical Health

For the past few years now there has been high debate over whether or not the American diet is right for the people. There has been debate over whether or not diabetes, which is growing in numbers is a disease or simply a dieting problem. Whether or not the obesity that is weighing the population down is coming from lack of exercise, lack of work, lack of social motivations, or just dieting. We are asked to reference Vegan ideas when it comes to dieting. Vegans have written books on such ideas as to suggest eating meat of an animal is the same as eating meat of man. There are a lot of implications in the Vegan diet that we don’t consider and are told a plant based diet is the best way to keep off a lot of, Man made diseases, such as diabetes.

Now I personally have been blessed most of my life. I have taken into account what is considered healthy for me based on the ministries of social sciences associated with diet and health  and have applied what I have read or I have omitted what I don’t like or what just does not mesh with the bible. I have tried to keep in mind that not every man is the same. That we are all genetically built different and are effected differently by the foods we eat. (I always try to keep in mind the person allergic to peanuts and omit the idea of nuts being a good source of protein, for the person that breaks out in hives or can not breathe from the ingesting of such foods.) Again I have been blessed in my life to not be allergic to food. Or many things. So because I am particularly healthy I try to spend my time, maintaining my health;   I find this to be the best way to determine our health in a society that is prone to creating problems that do not exist. I can not say life is worth living if I develop the habits of turning everything into an anathema because I had the weakness of overusing something. i.e. Sugar in excess causes many problems, this does not make sugar bad but in the cases of everything in our world seems to need sugar laced on the top of it to make it taste good, I am wondering why do we question why someone is sick, when you have made the only option for them to be satisfied to be a sugar laced meal.

I digress, looking to share what the bible says about health and how we aught to view what goes into our body.

Beginging with Gen: 1:26-27 ending with Gen: 1:30 we find that there were many things that are deemed good for man to eat. There was no thought of what was bad because it did not exist. From the beginning of time, there was only one thing GOD forbade man to eat   Gen: 2:9

It was after we began to debate about GOD’s creation and denied ourselves this or that did we find that we where half the men or women we wanted to be. We we no longer satisfied with the chickens of GOD’s creation or of how “slow” the process is of raising farm raised food, that we deicided to, “clone,” the meat and wondered why we get sick. No longer where we satisfied with warming our meals with steam that we devised “radiation” and in order to sell a product you have to mass market it. “TV dinners where all the rave in the 80’s and all the more bad for you because it required a machine that is recorded in causes cancer and elimating all of the nutrients out of it before your body can digest it.”

Deut 8: 3-6, Deut 8:11, Luke 4:4,

Drive down main street of most metroplitain areas and count the number of sandwich shops you pass. count the number of burger shops, count the number stores that only serve strach products, pizza parlors, count the number of fried food, grease burger shops, count the number of places in which breaded sources of fish, chicken, beef, is the main menu. You will find more than you can handle and say, “I’ll just eat at home where I know the food will not clog my arteries.”

Go into your grocerie store and count the number of products that have been “genetically modified.” Spliced with another organisim to suppliment what it not in the soil to help the product grow anywhere. Half of your prison population grows these products and half the farms in America grow these seeds because there is no chioce, “it is all that is supplied, lest you know of other sources for seed.”

Count the number of “Artifically flavored” food in America. Then the count the side effects associated with eating the color red. Or licking the color yellow. In a world of such curious dangers keep in mind

Phil 4:5-7~Everything in life should be consumed in moderation.

Phil 3:16-19~ They would tell you not to eat the things GOD made for it is defiled yet not telling you it was their science that defiled it.

Farm raised fish is bad; Not the fish

1 Cor 8:8-9, 8:13, 9:27, 10:3-4, 9:19-23-25

1Timothy 4: To  be seared with a hot iron all that GOD laid out for us for no other reason to confuse and hurt his people.  This is called being FOOLY-COOLYied and it is a hurtful feeling to know that someone was lied to by thinkers of another doctrine. When I look at myself in the mirror I am so happy with what I see, I see a man who is living by rules of moderation.  The healthiest I have ever been in a long time because one plate of anything suffices, No extremes one way or another and have found a line of peace. A peace I wish to share with others.

Something that stuck with me when I would teach people how to work out. The perfect body is 10% hard work 90% what we eat.

Skin care has been important to people for a long time.

Long before the insurance companies said they would cover us or not.

Long before people were walking around without insurance to help buffer the cost of quality health products.

That is why this story I am going to share with you has sparked me to give information to people about how care for themselves despite  what the doctors recommend or will allow there insurance to cover.

I was sitting in the pharmacy and over heard a young girl who’s family carried no health insurance was in need of a $500.00 product that would treat her skin condition. Because the child could not afford the product, they were directed to a more affordable foam substance that according to the pharmacist, “was not the same product, but does the same thing.”

The child of course would not know the product worked until she applied it and any adverse affects would not prevented because they doctor never prescribed this  $12.00 ointment that the pharmacist suggested.

While I sat there watching this procedure I had to ask myself, “If I did not have health care, was in a very bad situation of skin care, nor was carrying the kind of money needed to treat my problem, what would I do?”

I would find an alternative solution!

  • Taking a daily bath or shower. Try not to scrub too hard because this can irritate the skin and trigger an attack.
  • Oatmeal baths may be soothing and may help to loosen scales. You can use over-the-counter oatmeal bath products. Or, you can mix 1 cup (240 mL) of oatmeal into a tub (bath) of warm water.
  • Keeping your skin clean and moist, and avoiding your specific psoriasis triggers may help reduce the number of flare-ups.
  • Sunlight may help your symptoms go away. Be careful not to get sunburned.
  • Relaxation and anti-stress techniques. The link between stress and flares of psoriasis is not well understood.
  • Limiting the alcoholic beverages you drink may help keep psoriasis from getting worse.

 

  • Cortisone creams and ointments
  • Creams or ointments that contain coal tar or anthralin
  • Creams to remove the scaling (usually salicylic acid or lactic acid)
  • Dandruff shampoos (over-the-counter or prescription)
  • Moisturizers
  • Prescription medicines containing vitamin D or vitamin A (retinoids)

Most of the time we grow out of these conditions, so certainly we should not be asked to pay 500.00 for a treatment that will pass with age. It is like those attacked with acne and spend so much on creams and ointments when all they really need is a diet change.

At least that is what I did, I stopped eating anything with grease and washed my face daily and forgot about it, as a phase with age. Now those that have this condition in there late 30’s, again I suggest diet and less stress and topical cleanses. Never forget, You are what you eat.

!!Christian Retreats!!

Are you over worked and under paid?

If you live in America now-a-days, the answer is yes. Always yes.

You find yourself stuck in the city looking for ways to handle the needs of bills and life and look forward to the weekends. Never is there time to just smell the roses. To just breathe air not filled with smog from the traffic pile up.

When you do take time to a book a vacation, by the time you get there, you are think of the grind that awaits you.

What If you could find  a place, in the woods, far from everything, and find God.

Would you do it?

In the hills of North Carolina, there is such a place. Acres and acres of land untouched by the world. cabins and space for many to find that secret place. With kind hearted people to cater to your every need and minister the love of Jesus to your ever failing heart.

Many claim that they can manage without that time. They have tons of parks to dip into when they need that space. But do they really? parks are filled with regulations and louder children than the ones we raise. Not so here. All the space anyone needs to get there minds back to things that are important in life and that we take for granted.

Though in the world of today, He sees us trying.

Come all you whom labor and are heavy laden. We offer you rest in this place.
