One of the main staples in our house is now removed.  We have replaced it with juices and soda water.  I have so enjoyed learning about Natural Health and I am looking forward to learning more.  During this Bible study, I hope to share a lot of information concerning Natural health and healing.

Another interesting statement that I read recently that also spoke directly to me is this, “ We spend half of our life risking our health in the pursuit of money. In the second half of life, we spend our money in the pursuit of health.”  I personally think it is time to rethink our lives and begin to put our health first. 

What is more important to you?  What is your goal, your motivation to get healthy? Disease? High blood pressure?  Family?

Here is my reasons:

And no I do not have a recent photo of my husband but he is a big part of why I want to grow old!

 

May God be with you in all that you do!

Starting Out with Chapter 1:

 

I took the leap and joined Vintage Remedies School of Natural Health.  Last week, I started out on Chapter 1: Germ vs. Terrain Theory.  This week, I will be focusing on Macronutrients.

This first part of this course is called Family Herbalist Program.  It should take me about one year to complete. Then, I will begin the Clinical Masters Program. 

The teacher in me has to remember to be the student now.  This is not a simple task either.  As I learn of the different plants and their medicinal values, I will share them with you here. If you are also interested in Natural Health and would like to join me on this road trip, just click on the link above and check out their site

Laying the first Brick …

Today, we begin our focus on what we are eating. We could spend countless hours talking about carbs, proteins and more but lets break it down to even simpler terms.  What is one item that you can give up! One item that you know has no value to your body. It is void of minerals and vitamins. It is high is sugars and chemicals that are not good for your body. 

That is right! You guessed it!  Today and for the remainder of my life, we are laying off of Carbonated drinks.  Even diet drinks.  These are just empty calories! Useless calories that my body does not have any use for other than to get a quick high off of the caffeine. 

That is it.  To see it as a picture, I am having to remove the broken and useless brinks that I built my temple with previously and replace them with stronger bricks.  So, today, I am removing a brick that was void of strength. But that is all I am changing today! That is the first brick! NO MORE CARBINATED  DRINKS!  Believe me when I say that this is not an easy thing for me to do either!

As a side note, I attended a health fair yesterday. My blood work looked really good!  Still need to work on getting the HDL’s higher but overall, it was a good report!

Rebuilding the Temple .. Surveying the scene!

This week, we will need to take a look at ourselves.  What exactly are we dealing with?  In a notebook, list what health conditions that you have.  Write everything down including medications that you may be on.  If your physician has placed you on a specific diet, then write it down.  This will be crucial to laying your foundation. 

Once you have this in your notebook, front page, I want you to spend the rest of the week recording or monitoring everything that you eat.  Including how much water, soda, tea, etc that you drink.  If you take a taste of something (moms) record it. It all adds up in the end. 

Here is my story is a short version:

I am a 42 year old mother of three wonderful boys.  I am the wife of an awesome husband and we just celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary this past week.  After years of dieting, exercising and more, I received a diagnosis of Idiopathic Inter Cranial Hypertension. It can affect anyone but is seen more and more in overweight, middle aged women. Yes, that we me and still is… 

I have been on medications for over 9 years now.  It is a special diuretic which causes an entirely new list of problems.  Everything from exhausting to muscle cramps and more.

I do not eat the things that I should. I have lost weight in the past and felt better but I beginning focusing on my work and my family to the cost of my health.  I can find more things to do and excuses to share that I can find time to do what I need to do. 

I am presently at 182 and my waist size is 37.5”.  That is what I have to work with. 

But with God all things are possible. Including health and healing! If you have a smart phone, you may want to download a free program called, Lose It!   Wonderful program! You will also want to get the bar scanner program so you can scan the bar codes of the foods that you eat! You can also link your account with others so that they can support you in your efforts while you are support them in their efforts.  To go to the website, copy and paste www.loseit.com

Rebuilding the Temple. Day 1 continued …

Once again, in 1 Corinthians 6:19 – 20 “Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received [as a gift] from God? You are not your own. You were bought with a price [purchased with a preciousness and paid for, made His own]. So then, honor God and bring glory to Him in your body. “ 

I think that about says it all!  You want motivation to get healthy?  Well, there you have it. So, let’s get started! Today is a new day. You will not find a special diet here! You will not find special products that promise miracle weight loss. What you will find is a fellow Christian who is willing to walk the walk with you.  Let’s rebuild the temple where the Holy Spirit resides! Let get to work. Tomorrow, I will share with you my first steps towards better health. I will share recipes as we go and tips to make your life a little easier, I hope. I pray that you will come and join in on the chatter. Leave a comment! Share a recipe! But most of all, get involved!

 

See you tomorrow!

Rebuilding the Temple

With a renewed strength to go forward instead of standing still, I have chosen to rebuild the temple that the Holy Spirit dwells in. 

In 1 Corinthians 3: 9 – For we are fellow workmen with and for God; you are God’s garden and vineyard and field under cultivation, (you are ) God’s Building. 

Together, we can rebuild what God created for His Glory! As a Gardener, I find this verse of great comfort. For there is never a time that I plant seed into the ground without planning and anticipation that one day that seed will grow and bear fruit. I have never looked at the field and said, “What a lost cause!”  No, I go and find the good that the field has to offer.  I find the hidden treasures that are there.  If it needs to be restored, I am there to help it.  That is a picture of the God that I serve.  He is the MASTER gardener!

Secondly, in Isaiah 61:3 and 4,  “… So that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified!”  We are to be strong like the Mighty Oak. To stand firm, strong and mighty for the Lord! The Bible goes on to say, “ And they shall rebuild the ancient ruins; they shall raise  up the former desolations and renew the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations.”  It is time to rebuild the cities, the temple people!  It is time to  break the generational curses that we grasp and often claim!  It is time to rise up and stand Decide, who am I in CHRIST!  Am I am wimp or a warrior!
