General Disease Prevention
That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all nations. Psalms 67:2
Godly Trust – Psalms 103:1-5; Ex. 15:26; Proverbs 3:5-8; Proverbs 4:20-22; . Christ is the only true healer and can cure any disease if we cooperate with His principles through the surrender of our hearts to Him in obedience.
Oxygen – Gen 2:7; Fresh Air cleanses lungs and blood. Crack windows 6 inches at night for rejuvenating sleep.
Daily Sunlight – Malachi 4:2, Psalms 84:11; The body converts Vitamin D into a hormone that is secreted when the sun goes down. This hormone is secreted only until midnight to induce deep sleep. That is why when you stay up past midnight you no longer feel sleepy. The older a person gets the more sunlight is needed due to a decline in secretion.
Sweating Exercise – Gen. 2:15; Luke 13:33. True exercise includes sweating, increased breath rate, and heart rate. Best forms of exercise include agriculture, fast-paced walking, and biking. At least 5 days a week for 45 minutes to an hour.
Plenty of Rest – Gen. 15:12; Psalms 127:1,2; Eccl. 5:12; Physical exhaustion from exercise will aid in deep sleep.
Lots of Water – John 4:6-14; Your weight divided by two in ounces is how much you need daily. You lose about 6 glasses a day through urine, bowels, breath, and sweat glands. Caffeinated beverages disrupt the functions of the brain. (soda, coffee, teas) Drinking while eating causes fermentation in the stomach. 20 min. before or 1 hour and 1/2 after.
Always Temperate (Moderation) – Gal. 5:22,23; 1 Cor. 9:25-27; Eccl. 10:17; Prov. 23:1-3
We can only be temperate through the power of the Holy Spirit because it is a fruit of His. But we must first receive Christ as a personal Saviour through the full surrender of our hearts to God that we may have the Holy Spirit.
Nutrition – 1 Cor. 10:31; Gen. 1:29; Daniel 1:8 Grains, fruits, nuts, and vegetables constitute the diet chosen for us by our Creator. These foods, prepared in as simple and natural a manner as possible, are the most healthful and nourishing. They impart a strength, a power of endurance, and a vigor of intellect, that are not afforded by a more complex and stimulating diet. Brown rice, whole wheat bread, and whole wheat pasta are more nutritious than white flour products. Soymilk and Rice milk are preferable to cow’s milk. Large amounts of sugar lower the immune system. The immune system is what God has given us to fight against disease. Honey, Blackstrap molasses (unsulphured), and Maple syrup should be used moderately, but are healthy alternatives to white or brown sugar.
Breakfast (King) – Fruits (Apples), Grains (10 grain cereal or Oatmeal), Nuts (Almonds, Walnuts, Pecans, 8-10 pieces)
Lunch (Queen) – Salad (Romaine lettuce or spinach), Grain (Brown rice, Millet, or Quinoa), and Vegetables (steamed)
Supper (Prince) – Fruit Salad with bread or crackers. If taken, supper should be light in order to prevent food fermentation in the stomach and excess fat in the body, especially since it is the last meal before bed.
