Blog: Uncommon Wisdom!!

To understand the concepts of healing, we first need to know:

Why do we get sick?

Disease is an effort of nature to free the system from conditions that result from a violation of the laws of health.

What does this mean?

  1. The symptoms of disease (e.g. pain, fever, and inflammation) are nature’s effort to get better.
  2. Disease comes because we are violating God’s physical laws.

How can symptoms of disease be our body’s effort to recover?

Disease is not a negative condition which should be combated and suppressed ('cured'), but a self-defensive, protective effort of the body to restore health. Pain is our body's way of telling us that something is wrong. Inflammation is a re-constructive process and should not be suppressed. Every acute disease is an effort of nature to cleanse and heal. When suppressed, it becomes sub-acute, and then, with time, chronic and degenerative.

How is disease the result of violating God’s physical laws?

Medicine suggests that we are victims of sickness, attacked by a bad organism, having a bad organ, cursed by bad genes, etc. In reality, illness is most often a result of our own choices not dependent on uncontrollable factors. Disease-causing organisms are scavengers; they cannot find a home in a healthy body with a strong immune system. Bacteria, virus, or parasitic infection is not the primary cause of disease but rather its result. Even the father of the germ theory, Pasteur, began to understand the true relationship of germs to disease late in his life, when he stated: “The germ is nothing, the soil [the condition of the body] is everything,” meaning that a germ can only thrive in a suitable environment.

God's law is written by His own finger upon every nerve, every muscle, and every faculty which has been entrusted to man. God in His wisdom has established natural laws for the proper control of dress, appetites, and passions, and He requires of us obedience in every particular; this determines the condition of our health. All our enjoyment or suffering may be traced to obedience or to transgression of natural law.

God loves His creatures with a love that is both tender and strong. He has established the laws of nature; but His laws are not arbitrary exactions. Every "Thou shalt not," whether in physical or moral law, contains or implies a promise. If it is obeyed, blessings will attend our steps; if it is disobeyed, the result is danger and unhappiness. The transgression of the physical law is transgression of God's law. As sin is the transgression of the moral law, disease is the transgression of the physical law.

Florence Nightingale once said, “There are no specific diseases only specific disease conditions.” Disease is merely a departure from normal health. A careful conformity to the laws which God has implanted in our being will insure health, and there will not be a breaking down of the constitution. God has pledged Himself to keep this machinery in healthful action if the human agent will obey His laws, and co-operate with him. “If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee… for I am the LORD that healeth thee.” Exodus 15:26.

When we realize that disease is the result of transgression of God’s physical laws, the cure for it is found in identifying the cause. Remove the cause and we have found the cure.

So what should I do when I get sick?

The greatest cause of human suffering is ignorance on the subject of how to treat our own bodies. In case of sickness, the cause should be ascertained. Unhealthful conditions should be changed, and wrong habits corrected. Then, nature is to be assisted in her effort to expel impurities and to re-establish right conditions in the system.

This is a very vary good article... 

This is an item you may want to read, if you would like understand health & live a better life!!

Did you know that your chances of dying of heart disease may be as high as 50%?
And your chances of dying of cancer may be as high as 30%?
This article will empower you to beat these statistics.

In this article:

  • Read  and learn what it takes to have a balanced life....

Please explain.

When the abuse of health is carried so far that sickness results, we can often do what no one else can do for ourselves:

  1. First find out what is causing the disease, because disease never comes without a cause. Reason with yourself, “What could I have done to become sick?” In the beginning reasoning from cause to effect may be challenging to ascertain but with practice and conscious awareness it will become easy. And then you will be able to say like David, “I understand more than the ancients, because I keep Thy precepts.” Psalm 119:100.
  2. Remove the cause; stop doing the things that made you sick.
  3. Assist the body’s efforts to expel impurities by using natural remedies and trusting in God.
  4. Lastly, do not endeavor to adjust the difficulties by adding a burden of poisonous medicines.


How can I obtain Heaven’s healing?

There are many ways of practicing the healing art; but there is only one way that Heaven approves. God's remedies are the simple agencies of nature that will not tax or debilitate the system through their powerful properties. Pure air and water, cleanliness, proper diet, purity of life, and a firm trust in God, these are remedies for the want of which thousands are dying; yet these remedies are going out of date because their skillful use requires work that the people do not appreciate. Fresh air, exercise, pure water, and clean, sweet premises, are within the reach of all, with but little expense; but drugs are expensive, both in the outlay of means, and the effect produced upon the system.

God is greatly dishonored by the way in which man treats his organism, and He will not work a miracle to counteract a perverse violation of the laws of life and health. The Lord has made it a part of His plan that man's reaping shall be according to his sowing.

However, it is a safe proposition that after a person has done all in his power to search out and put away the cause of his disease, and it is found to be after all, that the cause is beyond all human effort to remove. Then, if the one sole aim of his healing is the glory of God and the keeping of the commandments of God, he may with perfect confidence and full assurance of faith ask the Lord to heal him.

Still, while presenting our petitions with earnestness, we should say, “Nevertheless not my will, but Thine, be done.” Luke 22:42. We do not know whether the blessing we desire will be best for us or not. Therefore, our prayers should include this thought: “Lord if it is for Thy glory that my health be restored, I ask, in the name of Jesus. If it be not Thy will give me Thy grace to comfort and Thy presence to sustain me.”



So what is the only method of obtaining healing that heaven approves of?

If your doctor were to inform you that to get better you would only have to take eight different pills a day, and he gave them to you for free, would you try them? The likelihood is you would. Today, the Greatest Physician in the universe is offering us eight remedies that one can take everyday and get better and stay well. Moreover they are so simple. Will we accept His offer?

God often uses the simplest means to accomplish the greatest results. Goliath the giant was killed by a small pebble. The power did not come from the pebble, but from David’s faith and obedience to God. Naaman the leper was healed by washing in the river of Jordan, because by obeying he expressed trust and obedience to God. Today, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8), the only true Physician, would like to share with us eight remedies to prevent illness andobtain His healing.

These remedies are better than the orthodox medicines that the world gives because, firstly, they are free; secondly, they work for all; and lastly, they have no bad side-effects (only good ones like more energy, greater endurance, sharper memory, younger-looking skin, loss of extra weight, etc).

How is it possible that the same eight remedies work for all?

Although externally we may look different, internally our bodies are governed by the same physical laws of nature. That is why the same plan works for everyone.

Okay, so what are these eight remedies that Jesus wants to share with us?

Permit me to introduce these remedies one at a time:


“Truly the light is sweet, and a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to behold the sun.” Ecclesiastes 11:7. Have you ever stopped to think that without sunlight there would be no life on this earth? – Not a leaf or fruit could grow nor a flower bloom. The life of every created being is the more perfect the more the creature enjoys the influence of light. Let a plant or an animal be deprived of light, notwithstanding every nourishment, care, and cultivation, it will first lose its color, then its strength, and at last will utterly decay.

God made man to live largely outdoors where the body could receive abundant sunshine. In fact, man was created and placed in the garden so that the sun would shine upon his entire body.

A miracle factory is at work just beneath our skin; when the ultraviolet rays of the sun touch the skin, the factory sets to work. There are tiny oil glands just beneath the skin called sterols. As sunshine strikes them, substances within them, called ergosterols, are irradiated and transformed into vitamin D. Red corpuscles constantly flowing through the very small blood vessels throughout every part of the 3,000 square inches of our skin transport the vitamin throughout the body.

Vitamin D is unique in that it is the only vitamin that humans produce intrinsically after exposure to ultraviolet B light from the sun. It takes a fair-skinned person only 15 minutes or less to generate 10,000 to 20,000 IU of vitamin D on a sunny day.

Vitamin D generated by sunlight on the skin is different from other vitamins in that it influences the entire body. Receptors that respond to this vitamin have been found in almost every type of human cell, from the brain to the bones.

All of the sunlight’s vitamin D's health-effects are not yet known, but it is clear that the vitamin is a “blockbuster” nutrient capable of many things, including the following:

Vitamin D –

How can I enjoy the benefits of sunlight without the risk of skin cancer or premature aging?

Start with 10-15 minutes exposure to the face, arms and legs daily or the diseased area of the body. Build up to 20-30 minutes daily. The body stores the vitamin D readily for over a week. Avoid sun burning. Do not use sun block or suntan lotion.

To avoid the risk of skin cancer, reduce free fats, such as oils, and eliminate bad fats, (this includes all animal fats, margarine, hydrogenated fats, fried foods. Also avoid sautéed food, and vegetable oils that have been heated in processing (this includes almost all refined vegetable oils). Suitable oils to use are extra-virgin, cold-pressed coconut oil and extra-virgin, cold-pressed olive oil. Always add them to the food just before serving – do not cook with oils. When not available eat the oil as it is found in the food, e.g. raw nuts and seeds, avocadoes, olives, corn, etc.


Do you remember the first thing you did when you were born? Breathe for air. Man may live 5-6 weeks without food, a few days without water, but only a few minutes without air. Our body’s most important nutritional requirement is not protein, carbohydrates, fats – it is oxygen! Just as fire in a furnace cannot be kept up without enough air which would supply the necessary amount of oxygen to the flames, so the fires of life in the body cannot be maintained without an abundance of oxygen in the body. The way we breathe can substantially affect how we look, feel, resist disease, and even how long we live.

In order to have good blood, we must breathe well. Full, deep inspirations of pure air fill the lungs with oxygen; purify the blood, sending it – a life-giving current – to every part of the body. Good respiration soothes the nerves; stimulates the appetite; renders digestion more perfect; and induces sound, refreshing sleep.

Fresh air will prove far more beneficial to sick persons than medicine, and is far more essential to them than their food. They will do better, and will recover sooner, when deprived of food, than when deprived of fresh air. An outdoor life amid natural surroundings would work wonders for many a helpless and almost hopeless invalid. Some diseases can be cured most of all through proper air. The most successful cure for tuberculosis of the lungs requires an unusually large amount of fresh air for the patient day and night. Sleeping porches should be provided and such patients should be allowed indoors for only meals and other duties. Thousands have died for want of pure water and air who might have lived.

Does the way I stand and sit affect my breathing?

The lungs can expand properly only when a person sits and stands straight because otherwise the sacs in the lungs that take in the air will be compressed. If lungs do not get enough air, the blood does not get enough oxygen; in turn, everything does not function as efficiently as it should. Practice how to sit and stand straight – head high, back straight.

How can I make sure I am getting enough air?

On the surface, it would appear that when you take a breath, the air goes in and immediately bounces back. Actually, only about 1/7 of the air in the air cells of the lungs is replaced with each breath. It is important to do deep breathing exercise daily (three times a day is best). Be sure to do this in the morning before breakfast. Take a deep breath to full expansion, hold, then exhale slowly and completely, and hold that. Repeat this, say, 20 times. This helps the circulation and gets toxins out of the system.

One of the best ways to learn deep breathing (normal breathing) is to lie flat on one’s back and place your hand on your stomach. As you breathe in deeply your hand should rise. This exercise should be practiced until your abdominal muscles automatically rise each time you breathe, all the time. This indicates that the entire lung is expanding, with emphasis on the lower portion of the lung and abdominal area.

Be outdoors as much as possible. Always exercise outdoors. In the home it is important to secure thorough ventilation and plenty of sunlight. Keep proper ventilation in mind wherever you are (home, work, school, etc.). Air must be in constant circulation to be kept free from poisons.

Breathe fresh air while sleeping – open the windows. Even on cold winter nights, double the blankets but always keep the windows open. Air the bedrooms daily with the windows open. When we sleep in an ill-ventilated room we will awake feeling feverish and exhausted. This is because the vital air was excluded, and our entire system suffers in consequence.

Do not smoke tobacco; avoid second-hand smoke too. Our skin breathes; try to wear only natural material (100% cotton, linen, silk or wool) on everything that touches the body so that it can breathe without impediments. Avoid smog and all chemicals, cleaning solutions, solvents, paint removers, insect sprays, and deodorants. The best air is at beaches, oceans, waterfalls, thunderstorms, forests, and in sunshine; all these natural environments electrically charge oxygen molecules to negative ions which are health-giving. However, air from air conditioners is not the best, because it is positively ionized.

What should I do if the air is too cold?

When cold, try not to wear too much. If you add clothing, let it be but little, and exercise, if possible, to regain the heat you need. If you positively cannot engage in active exercise, warm yourself by the heater; but as soon as you are warm, lay off your extra clothing and remove from the fire. If those who can would engage in some active employment to take the mind off themselves, they would generally forget that they felt the chill, and would not receive harm. You should lower the room temperature as soon as you have regained your natural warmth. For invalids who have feeble lungs, nothing can be worse than an overheated atmosphere. The heated oppressed atmosphere deprives the vitality, benumbs the sensitive brain, and causes the lungs to shrink and the liver to become inactive.

What happens if I do not breathe right?

If an insufficient supply of oxygen is received through shallow breathing, the blood moves sluggishly. The waste, poisonous matter, which should be thrown off in exhalations from the lungs, is retained and the blood becomes impure. Not only the lungs, but the stomach, liver and brain are affected. The skin becomes sallow and digestion is retarded. Oxygen deficiency in the cells is known to cause cancer. Experiments have proven that cancer cells cannot live in blood that is well oxygenated.

Air should not be regarded as an enemy, but a precious blessing. Many labor under the mistaken idea that when they have a cold, they must carefully exclude the outside air, and increase the temperature of their room until it is excessively hot. The system becomes deranged and the pores closed by waste matter. And the internal organs suffer more or less inflammation, because the blood has been chilled back from the surface and thrown upon them. At this time, of all others, the lungs should not be deprived of pure, fresh air. If pure air is ever necessary, it is when any part of the system, as the lungs or stomach, is diseased.

Many families suffer with sore throat, lung disorders and liver complaints, brought upon them by their own course of action. They breathe the same air over and over again, until it becomes impregnated with poisonous impurities. Those who thus abuse their health must suffer disease.


Have you ever experienced days when you felt that you did not have the energy to do what you needed to do? You look at your children, see how active they are and wish you had half their energy. Wouldn’t you like it if your doctor could prescribe you something inexpensive and simple that will have the following side effects: –


Man used to have to work to grow and harvest his food, and to feed his animals. Modern living has eliminated 90% of the motion and exercise our bodies require to function optimally. Manual labor is no longer needed to obtain food; we simply go to the market. The level of oxygen absorption is determined by the level of physical exertion.

Our sedentary life has led to chronic oxygen starvation. Our organs, muscles, brain, nerves, are now forced to struggle with their tasks in spite of the chronic undersupply of this most important nutrient. The consequences are obvious: physical and mental deterioration and a growing number and intensity of degenerative diseases – the result of this new mechanized lifestyle, with pollution.

“Many of the things we call biomarkers of aging might actually be biomarkers of inactivity.” Williams Evans Ph.D., The Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging.

Perfect health requires a perfect circulation. The more we exercise the better will be the circulation of the blood. Also, exercise produces brain substances (endorphins) that make us feel good like a medicine. We can get all the nutrition into our blood but if we do not get the nourished blood to where it needs to go through exercise we will not benefit.


How much exercise should I get?

Exercise at least 30 minutes daily. Brisk walking is good. On the first day, begin a program of walking as far as is comfortable, and gradually work up to five miles per day. Outdoor labor, in any useful activity, is an excellent source of exercise.

In health, exercise will more adequately help the body to cope with dietary abuses and other debilitating factors of a bad lifestyle. The worse the diet, the more important it is to exercise, although it should be realized that only partial protection can be achieved.

Exercise is very important even if you are very sick. At this time it is especially important to rest, but make sure to walk, and do breathing exercises daily. If you are unable to exercise, use a trampoline. Massage can help as it is passive exercise. A whole range of motion exercises are beneficial.


“Cleanse first that which is within…that the outside…may be clean also.” Matthew 23:26. Toxic waste builds up in the body when we do not drink enough water.

The body of a new-born infant contains more than 80% water. The amount of water in the tissues lessens with advancing age. More than 60% of our body is made up of water.

Humans have lived 81 days without food, but they will die in 5 days without water. If a person loses just 5% of his total water, he will start to hallucinate, become disoriented, and experience twitching muscles. If he loses 15% of his total water, his life is endangered. A loss greater than 15% of body fluids may result in death. Yet, the body has no water storage system to depend on in times of need.

The parts of the body that suffer most from dehydration are those without direct vascular circulation, such as the joint cartilages in fingers, knees, and vertebrae. Chronic pains are

often indicators of chronic dehydration. When any of your joints begin to signal aching pains that come and go, the first thought that should occur to you is “My body is severely short of water.” Often, though, when the signs of water deficiency in joint cartilages are not recognized for what they indicate, painkillers are prescribed, frequently resulting in a dependence on addictive medication, and possible permanent results could be permanent damage to cartilage separation of the joint bones.

According to Dr. Fereydoon Batmanghelidj, “Understanding dehydration will empower you to become much healthier and you will be able to become your own healer.” Dehydration can cause disease. "Dry mouth is not the only sign of dehydration and waiting to get thirsty is wrong. Pain in the body is a crisis call of the body for water. Thirst should be prevented. When [the] body does not receive enough water and you have pain that, is a sign of dehydration."

Dr. Batmanghelidj also explained, “Chronic pain of the body which cannot easily be explained as injuries or infection, should first and foremost be interpreted as signal of chronic water shortage in the area where the pain is registered. These pain signals should first be considered and excluded as primary indicators for dehydration of the body before any other complicated procedures are forced on the patient.”


How much water should I drink and how do I know if I am drinking enough water?

Contrary to popular belief, thirst is not a good indicator. By the time you are thirsty, it means your body has already lost more than 3% of its water. If your urine is bright yellow, you are drinking too little water. Ideally, your urine should be as light as possible, almost colorless. Regular intake of water throughout the day is important because when a huge amount of water is ingested, it is practically completely eliminated by the kidneys in the succeeding few hours. That is why, to meet your daily ration of water intake, a lot of water all at once is not the solution. Drink one to two glasses of water every waking hour or so throughout the day.

Drink more if you sweat much or the weather is hot. This will help your endurance. Carry a supply with you. Upon rising, drink two glasses at room temperature with a freshly squeezed lemon in it.


How about daily showers?

A burned victim who has had over 50% of the skin function destroyed, has a lower chance for survival, and his kidneys are placed under a terrific load because of the loss of eliminative assistance by the skin. The skin is considered to play the role of a third kidney. The average healthy person eliminates about 1 kg of waste material daily through the pores of the skin! People who engage in rigorous physical activity eliminate an even greater amount. It is important to keep the pores open and clean by daily bathing.

Persons in health should on no account neglect daily bathing. More so, those who are not in good health have impurities in the blood. The multitude of pores, or little mouths, through which the body breathes, become clogged and filled with waste matter, and the skin is not in a healthy condition. The skin needs to be carefully and thoroughly cleansed, that the pores may do their work in freeing the body from impurities. Feeble persons who are diseased surely need the advantages and blessings of bathing daily.

Whether a person is sick or well, respiration is more free and easy if bathing is practiced. By it, the muscles become more flexible, the mind and body are alike invigorated, the intellect is made brighter, and every faculty becomes livelier. The bath is a soother of the nerves. It promotes general perspiration, quickens the circulation, overcomes obstructions in the system, and acts beneficially on the kidneys and urinary organs. Bathing helps the bowels, stomach, and liver, giving energy and new life to each. It also promotes digestion, and instead of the system being weakened, it is strengthened.

Instead of increasing the liability of cold, a bath, properly taken, fortifies against cold, because the circulation is improved, and the uterine organs, which are more or less congested are relieved, for the blood is brought to the surface, and an easier and regular flow of the blood through all the blood vessels is obtained. Remember to always end your bath or shower with cold water, as this strengthens the body whereas ending with warm or hot water weakens the body.

Should I use hydrotherapy (water treatments) when I am sick? How effective is it?

The things of nature are God's blessings, provided to give health to the body, mind, and soul. They are given to the healthy to keep them healthy and to the sick to make them healthy. Natural remedies with water treatment are more effective in restoring health than all the drug medication in the world.

Take one hot bath a day, remain in the bath for 20 minutes; the temperature of the water should be 110 degrees F, followed by a cold shower for 1-3 minutes. Before each shower or bath, dry brush the skin with a stiff brush until the skin is rosy and warmed. Brush stroking towards the heart region.

Having steam bath at home is excellent. Have a steam bath daily, or twice daily in serious sicknesses, until you are recovered. Sit on a small stool, covered with a blanket, from the neck to the feet. Place a basin of boiling water between your feet. Replace the water as it cools, with more hot water. Maintain this position for twenty minutes; end with a cold shower for 1-2 minutes.



2000 centurions were studied – nothing was found in common with them other than the moderation in quantity of food. Observations on 2000 centurions showed that, for attainment of long life, the amount of food was more critical than the type of food that was consumed.

The Bible speaks of true temperance in everything concerning life, not just food. Bible temperance teaches us to dispense entirely with everything harmful, and to use judiciously that which is healthful. That means we should avoid all things that do not promote health and enjoy moderately those that do. True temperance does not refer only to eating and drinking. It includes all things in life: moderation in sleep, work, and play, also avoidance of stress, bad thoughts, anger, etc. Prolong your life by careful supervision of yourself.

When it comes to diet, nothing should be put into the human system that will leave a baleful influence behind. True temperance in diet involves abstaining from all stimulants including: drugs; tobacco; alcohol; caffeine drinks – i.e. colas and soft drinks; tea and coffee; and chocolate. Avoiding all animal meat (beef, cow, fish, fowl...). If ever meat eating was safe, it is definitely not safe now. The liability to take disease is increased tenfold by meat-eating. Cancers, tumors, and all inflammatory diseases are largely caused by meat-eating.

It also includes avoiding the following unhealthful ingredients:

Be moderate even in the good things. Do not overeat of even healthful foods. Any food in excess becomes a poison. It is sin to be intemperate in the quantity of food eaten, even if the quality is unobjectionable. Overeating is the sin of this age. Many persons of excellent natural ability do not accomplish half of what they might if they were temperate in all things.

Drugs include the use of over-the-counter medications and prescription drugs. Drugs are expensive, both in the outlay of means, and the effect produced upon the system. Drugs never cure; instead, they place in the system seeds which bear a very bitter harvest. Those who make a practice of taking drugs, sin against their intelligence and endanger their whole after-life. Medicine has done more harm to our world, killing more than helping or curing people.

Drug therapy is preventable. For example, a significant number of patients currently on high blood pressure medication could be cured without drugs. However, the very life of some may totally depend on these drugs. Again the cause of this dependency is ignoring or improperly treating the first signs of high blood pressure, and not being willing to change the diet and lifestyle that causes high blood pressure.

Nearly any infection anywhere in the body can develop to the point that the use of antibiotics is a wise course of action. This, however, usually occurs only if the earliest signs of infection are ignored, or if the individual’s vital energy and immunological resistance are so depressed by poor diet or other factors that the body is no longer capable of self-cure rapidly enough.

The decision to use surgery, drugs, or antibiotics must be made as the last resort, or if no other alternative exists. All processes of disease have their origin long before drugs and surgery are required. We continually push the body toward catastrophe by ignoring or suppressing acute disease beginning in early childhood. If the language of disease had been heard and treated properly in its beginning there would be no need for drugs or, in most cases, surgery in our lives.

The main cause of fatigue is improper diet, irregular meals, and a lack of physical exercise. Furthermore, irregular hours for eating and sleeping sap the brain forces. To have good health and be successful in reaching a high standard of godliness, you must be temperate in all things.

There are some who would be benefited more by abstinence from food for a day or two every week than by any amount of treatment or medical advice. To fast one day a week would be of incalculable benefit to them.

“And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.” 1 Corinthians 9:25-27

God requires us to be temperate in all things. Unless we practice true temperance, we will not, we cannot, be susceptible to the sanctifying influence of the truth. Erroneous eating and drinking habits result in erroneous thinking and acting. Unless we are free from the bondage of every bad habit, we cannot be true, obedient servants of Christ.


Awareness is increasing that surrounded, as we are, with increasing toxicity in our food and environment, eating a pure and healthful diet is more important than ever.

In order to know what the best foods are, we must study God's original plan for man's diet. He who created man and who understands his needs appointed Adam his food: vegetables, fruits, grains, and nuts constitute the diet chosen for us by our Creator. “And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.” Genesis 1:29

“The three major killers in modern society – Coronary Heart Disease, Cancer and Strokes – can all be linked to what people eat and drink.” Dr B. Hetzel, Chief of the CSIRO Division of Human Nutrition and Foundation, Professor of Social and Preventive Medicine, Monash University.

According to National Academy of Science, 60% of all cancers in women, and 40% in men are due to dietary and nutritional factors.

God gave our first parents the food He designed that the race should eat. It was contrary to His plan to have the life of any creature taken. There was to be no death in Eden. The fruit of the trees in the garden was the food man's wants required. A benevolent Creator had given them evidences of His goodness and love in providing them with fruits, vegetables, grains, and nuts, and in causing to grow out of the ground every variety of trees for usefulness and beauty. It is only after sin that animals started to eat animals and man began to eat animals contrary to God’s will.

God gave man no permission to eat animal food until after the flood. Everything had been destroyed upon which man could subsist. The Lord permitted Noah to eat of the clean animals which he had taken with him into the ark. But animal food was not the healthiest article of food. Notably, with the introduction of meat into the diet, the recorded life-span of man drastically decreased after the flood. The average length of life before the flood was 912 years, whilst after, only 350 years. Successive generations after the flood degenerated more rapidly. Furthermore, God had given definite commands that any meat that was to be eaten was to be eaten without any fat and without any of the blood (Leviticus 3:17).This is the tastiest part of the meat!

When God brought the Israelites out of Egypt after 400 years of bondage, He gave them a vegan diet: “And the children of Israel did eat manna forty years, until they came to a land inhabited; they did eat manna, until they came unto the borders of the land of Canaan.” Exodus 16:35. Have you ever stopped to think how God could have easily provided them with flesh as with manna, but a restriction was placed upon them for their good. It was His purpose to supply them with food better suited to their need than that to which they had become accustomed to in Egypt. The perverted appetite was to be educated into a more healthy state, that they might enjoy the food originally provided for man – the fruits of the earth. It was for this reason that the Israelites were deprived, in a great measure, of animal food.


Eat plenty of vegetables (especially dark green leafy vegetables); fruits; whole-grains; nuts and seeds; legumes, beans, and peas in as fresh a state as possible. Fresh fruits and vegetables are to be preferred.


Meal Suggestions:


Vegetable-based meal can include: – A large raw salad (with cabbage, leaf lettuce, celery, carrot, radish, green peppers, tomatoes, onions). Salad dressing can include lemon juice, nut or seed butters, olive oil and/or herbs of preference. Some like lemon juice with honey. It is preferable to eat the things that are easiest to digest first, such as salads and soups, ending with the denser foods. This is because the first thing that is eaten is the first thing that gets digested. Include cooked vegetables, like green leafy vegetables or sea vegetables daily. The more colorful the vegetables, the better: the color comes from chemicals called antioxidants which are powerful free-radical scavengers. Have baked or boiled roots (potatoes, sweet potatoes, yams, cassava, etc); beans (white beans, kidney beans, garbanzo beans, pinto beans… there are an endless variety of beans to choose from); grains (brown rice, whole-wheat bread, corn, whole grain pasta, etc).

Meal with fruits can include: Cooked whole grains (brown rice, whole-rolled oats, whole wheat bread, buckwheat, barley, millet, rye, sorghum, amaranth, corn meal, etc); one or two kinds of fruit; raw nuts (almonds, Brazil nuts, walnuts, pecans, pistachios, macadamia, cashew, chestnuts, hazel nuts, peanuts, etc); and/or raw seeds (ground flaxseeds, sunflower, pumpkin, sesame seeds, etc).

When the brain is constantly taxed, and there is lack of physical exercise, even plain food should be eaten sparingly. A fruit diet for a few days has often brought great relief to brain workers.

If dinner is still desired, it should be the lightest meal of the day and can consist of a fruit smoothie or some fruit with bread.

How Can I Change My Eating Habits?

Some people may recoil at the idea of so great a limitation of the dietary. Put a person who has suffered from chronic disease, taking lots of medicine with no long-term benefit, suffering pain and sickness, will be quite willing to undergo almost any sort of degree of gustatory discipline if assured that the sacrifice will secure the desired result.

Persons who have indulged their appetite in the eating of meat, highly seasoned foods, and sweets, cannot immediately relish a plain, wholesome, and nutritious diet. Their taste is so perverted that they have no appetite for a whole-foods vegan diet. If they cannot at first enjoy plain food, they should fast until they can. The fast will prove to them of greater benefit than medicine, for the abused stomach will find that rest which it has long needed, and real hunger can be satisfied with a plain diet. “The full soul loatheth an honeycomb; but to the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet.” Proverbs 27:7.

It will take time for the taste to recover from the abuses which it has received and to gain its natural tone. But perseverance in a self-denying course of eating and drinking will soon make plain, wholesome food palatable, and it will soon be eaten with greater relish than the epicure enjoys over his rich dainties. In all cases, educate the conscience, enlist the will, supply good, wholesome food, and the change will be readily made, and the demand for flesh will soon cease.

Do not bring temptation in the house. Keep all animal products and junk foods out of the house. “Make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.” Romans 13:14. Temporarily at least, if not permanently, minimize association with friends and family who encourage unhealthy eating. “He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.” Proverbs 13:20. If you know you are going out with certain friends who tempt you to smoke, or going to a certain family’s home tempts you to eat meat; do not go. Put on the brakes, hold your appetite under strict charge, and then leave yourself in the hands of God. The walls of self-control and self-restriction should not in a single instance be weakened and broken down.

Many favorite dishes can be altered to become healthy. Keep meals simple. Have your favorites often; many people do not mind having their favorite dishes several times a week. If your family is not vegan, do not cook two meals; have meat and dairy products on the side, e.g. brown rice with vegetables, served with meat. Dishes should be prepared that will invite the appetite, and will be pleasing to the sight.

Before you go to bed, choose what you will eat the next day and prepare beforehand as much as you can. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail! Plan your meals and shopping list for three to four days or even a week ahead.

Cook for several days. Double the recipes and freeze half the quantity (beans, soups, patties, and tomato sauces do excellent this way.) Always make food easily available; leave pre-cut fruit and vegetables ready to eat in the fridge. Let fruit be placed on the table in abundance. Keep your kitchen well stocked with healthy food options.


Do not be deceived if in the beginning you have less energy. Lower quality food and drinks containing, meat, caffeine, sugar, spices, and excess salt, tend to be more stimulating than higher quality foods. Consequently, the withdrawal of these stimulating foods produces a slower resting phase for the heart which registers in the mind as a decrease in energy.

All We Need to Know on Eating

To eat is a necessity, but to eat intelligently is an art. If not more important, just as important as what we eat, is how and when we eat. Below are the basic principles to perfect eating habits:

Importance of Chewing

It has been said that you must chew your drink and drink your food! The benefit derived from food does not depend so much on the quantity eaten, as on its thorough digestion; nor the gratification of taste so much on the amount of food swallowed, as on the length of time it remains in the mouth. Digestion starts in the mouth; thorough chewing allows digestive enzymes in saliva to thoroughly mix with food, an essential first step for optimal digestion.

In order to secure healthy digestion, food should be eaten slowly. Those who wish to avoid dyspepsia, and those who realize their obligation to keep all their powers in a condition which will enable them to render the best service to God, will do well to remember this. If our time to eat is limited, we should not

bolt down our food, rather we should eat less, and masticate slowly. Those who are excited, anxious, or in a hurry, would do well not to eat until they have found rest or relief, because the vital powers, already severely taxed, cannot supply the necessary digestive fluids.


Chewing gum is also a ‘no-no’ as this over-works the salivary glands since the mouth continues to produce saliva whilst chewing.

Eat a Good Breakfast

It is the custom and order of society to take a slight breakfast. But this is not the best way to treat the stomach. At breakfast time the stomach is in a better condition to take care of more food than at the second or third meal of the day. The habit of eating a sparing breakfast and a large dinner is wrong. Make your breakfast correspond more nearly to the heartiest meal of the day.

Two Meals Better Than Three

“And the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the brook.”1 Kings 17:6

The practice of eating but two meals a day is generally found to be a benefit to health. Those who are changing from three meals a day to two, will at first be troubled more or less with faintness, especially about the time they have been in the habit of eating their third meal. But if they persevere for a short time, this faintness will disappear.

Yet under some circumstances, some persons may require a third meal. However, this should, if taken at all, be very light, and of food most easily digested. A fresh fruit smoothie or toasted bread with fruit is the food best suited for the evening meal.

Five to Six Hours between Meals

A second meal should never be eaten until the stomach has had time to recover from the labor of digesting the preceding meal. At least five or six hours should intervene between the meals; and most persons who give the plan a trial, will find that two meals a day are better than three.

No Eating Before Sleeping

We are not nocturnal animals; when we sleep our entire metabolism slows down. The reclining position causes the weight of the internal organs to press against the very large nerve trunks on each side of the spinal column and shuts off the mechanism that keeps the gastro-intestinal tract active. Even around 2:00-3:00 a.m., our body temperature drops and our energy falls.

When we lie down at night, the stomach should have its work all done, that it, as well as other portions of the body, may enjoy rest. But if more food is forced upon it, the digestive organs are put in motion again, to perform the same round of labor through the sleeping hours. The sleep of such is often disturbed with unpleasant dreams, and in the morning they awake un-refreshed.



Many indulge in the pernicious habit of eating just before retiring. They may have taken their regular meals, yet because they feel a sense of faintness, they think they must have supper. By indulging this wrong practice, it becomes a habit, and they feel as though they could not sleep without food. In many cases this faintness comes because the digestive organs have been too severely taxed through the day in disposing of the great quantities of food forced upon them. These organs need a period of entire rest from labor, to recover their exhausted energies.

When eating food before sleeping becomes a habit, the digestive organs lose their natural vigor, and the person finds himself a miserable dyspeptic. And not only does the transgression of nature's laws affect the transgressing one unfavorably, but others suffer more or less with him. Let any one take a course that irritates him in any way, and see how quickly he manifests impatience!

If you feel that you must eat at night, take a drink of cold water, and in the morning you will feel much better for not having eaten.

Eat at Regular Times

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” Ecclesiastes 3:1

Having your meals the same time everyday regulates and controls the internal signals of satiety, appetite and hunger. You injure your health greatly by overeating and by eating at improper times. This diminishes the blood to the brain. The mind becomes confused, and you have not the proper control of yourself – “Feed me with food convenient for me: lest I be full, and deny Thee.” Proverbs 30:8b, 9a

In one research, test subjects were given regular meals for 2 weeks and then irregular meals for 2 weeks. Below are some of the advantages found when people ate regular meals versus irregular meal times:

  • A lower energy intake for the day.
  • More calories burned following their meal (thermogenesis).
  • Lower total and LDL cholesterol levels.
  • Lower peak insulin levels and lower overall insulin response.
  • All of these benefits can effortlessly help us maintain a healthy weight, improve cholesterol levels, and improve insulin levels, which will have a positive impact on our health.

If we would form habits of regularity and order, we would improve in health, in mental attitude, in memory, and in disposition. It is our duty to observe strict rules in all our habits of life. This is for our own good, both physically and morally.

Snacking Between Meals

A king who cannot rule his diet will hardly rule his realm in peace and quiet. “Blessed art thou, O land, when thy king is the son of nobles, and thy princes eat in due season, for strength, and not for drunken
