Natural Food

A Vital Link In Your Health Stewardship Program

""The term "natural" is used today in advertising so loosely that I don't think anyone knows what it means. "Natural!" is emblazoned on every other package. But when you read the label there is a mile long list of artificial ingredients. This tells me that for the advertisers "natural" means that at one time this was from nature.

When God created food for the first time, He knew exactly what we needed to live full and happy lives. He packaged it in fruits and vegetables. He created the awesome process of photosynthesis so that plants could take the sun's life giving energy and transform it into food for us. Amazing! He had us lovingly in mind then and now. So why is it that we have so many food choices that say "natural" but aren't?

The love of money is the root of all evil! The reason for the artificial items on the packaging list is MONEY! The longer the shelf life and the brighter the colors the more money the food producers make. Why does the FDA allow chemicals in our food that other countries have banned? That is a good question and the answer is still that the love of money is the root of all evil.

Don't expect other people to do your thinking for you. Do your homework and begin studying how to live life as God intended. Everything you need for health, He has provided in unprocessed food.

I seek to instigate self-government and liberty, especially in the area of health. You can't have liberty without health. Take back your health! Be self-governing!

Fresh Air & Oxygen

A Vital Link In Your Health Stewardship Program

Most of us take the air we breathe for granted. We don't even think about it unless it smells bad or causes us immediate distress. It is also difficult to control.

One time I was moved into a new building with new cubicles and new carpet. I was immediately aware of the odors in the air, which means airborne chemicals were entering my lungs and poisoning me. I felt ill pretty quickly so I bought a negative ion producing air cleaner and left it running in the office 24 hours a day for a month. I think I purified the whole building because the odor went away everywhere.

Some people are more aware than others of the effects of noxious chemicals in the air. But understand that even if they do not make you ill immediately, they are causing problems in your body that your body may eventually be unable to compensate for.

Cancer is in essence caused by lack of oxygen in the affected tissue so this illness as well as all other pollution in the tissues will benefit from an air purifier/ozone generator. But exercise will multiply the effects.

A Simple Life

A Vital Link In Your Health Stewardship Program

Much of the stress and anxiety we feel each day is self-imposed.

Take for example the family that dreams of having a boat. Finally they purchase one. Now they have added hours of chores to take care of it, hours of driving to put it in the water, and many new costs to keep it up. After a few months the children would rather play with their friends, the parents are torn between playing on the weekends and keeping up the house and the yard. These go undone or the boat sits in storage. All these irritations build until the family is wondering why they ever got the boat in the first place. I am not saying, "Don't buy a boat." I am saying, make your dreams line up with reality so that when you have them you are prepared for the additional burden. You only have so much time in a day and in your life. Spend it wisely.

As I have grown a little wiser, I have realized that I am happiest when I decide to make whatever I am doing enjoyable. Many people must perform many mundane and repetitive tasks everyday. And a key to reducing stress is to learn to enjoy them. Take time to really look at the kitchen after you have cleaned it and think about how pleased it makes you. Focus on the feeling of success and the beauty of a task well done. It is just as easy to think a good, positive thought as it is to think a negative one. The choice is ours.
