Bit of History Step Climbing

Then they led Jesus from Caiaphas to the praetorian and it was early morning .Pilot then went out to them (Matthew 11 27 28-29, Spirit Filled Application, NKJV). Martin Luther, German theologian and leader of the Reformation, was impacted by his step climbing experience at the Santa Scala in Rome. Martin Luther was there to pay penance for his grandfather's soul in purgatory. I had an opportunity to walk those same steps. It is believed that Jesus walked these steps while being questioned by...

Pink Toothbrush

My God sent his angel and shut the lions' mouths, so that I was found innocent before him, and also, O King, I have done no wrong before you (Daniel 6 22 emphasis added). Is your bark bigger and stronger than your bite The angel of the Lord kept the lions' teeth from chewing up Daniel in the den. Is the state of your teeth and gums preventing you from eating what your body needs for optimal health There are several reasons why you may have a pink toothbrush. A common cause today is gingivitis....

Anatomy

Adrenal Gland A small walnut-shape gland located on top of the kidneys. The adrenal gland makes several hormones necessary for optimal health. It is important to make natural cortisone, male and female hormones, and is critical for the maintenance of various minerals. The adrenal gland also creates the chemicals necessary for you to respond to emergencies. It is commonly weakened by sugar and stress. Chronic pain, female hormone issues, asthma, allergies plus so much more are directly affected...

Beet Root

He shall grow like the lily and lengthen his roots like Lebanon (Hosea 14 5). Let food be your medicine and let medicine be your food. What a profound statement. I am constantly telling my patients the benefit of eating beets. It has been determined that even a small percentage of beet fiber in a diet with a person having high serum cholesterol can reduce it by 30 percent. Yes, you read it right and I have the patients to prove it. The lowering of cholesterol...

BitternessA Life Zapper

Pursue peace with all people.lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble (Hebrews 12 14-15). The Lord knows bitterness is a poison and will cause trouble. In his book, Your Liver, Your Lifeline, Dr. Jack Tips succinctly discusses the enormous role the liver plays in our daily function. Optimal physical, emotional, and chemical health depends on all the body systems functioning at their peak performance. Perpetual feelings of bitterness can destroy a person in record time. Liver...

.For why is my liberty judged by another man's conscience (1 Corinthians 10 29, emphasis added). Liberty Freedom from external constraint.8 Prior to the Fall of Adam, all vegetation enjoyed timeless growth and liberty. Nature is seeking to be made free from the law of sin and death (see Rom. 8 2). Our bodies are in a constant state of breakdown and repair. Breakdown appears to occur with reckless abandonment while repair requires enormous energy. Focus your daily activity to limit obvious...

Castor Oil Pack

Recommendation With the approval of your physician, you may use the Castor Oil Pack whenever you so desire or feel a need. Castor Oil Packs have been employed for health benefits for centuries. Reportedly, they were used in ancient India, China, Persia, Egypt, Africa, Greece, Rome, and in North and South America. More modern medical literature indicates their use as a treatment for gastrointestinal problems, lacerations, skin disorders such as psoriasis, as an evacuant, and as a vehicle for...

Cornerstone Significance

Having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone (Ephesians 2 20). Jesus is our cornerstone. A cornerstone is the point of the building where two significant walls join. In biblical terms, this is the primary focal point of man the spiritual and man the physical. Jesus unites the Bride and Groom. Each one of us who have accepted Jesus as our personal Savior is analogues to a brick in the church. Masonry bricks make strong...

Dandruff Head Skin Itch

If a man or woman has a sore or skin itch on the head. INFLAMMATION of the scalp and head can be quite annoying. Billions of dollars are spent each year on shampoos designed to control exfoliation of skin on top of the head. Watch for chemicals that you are applying to your brain, which is adjacent to the skull. The scalp and tissues around the head and face are rich with blood vessels. Sodium lauryl sulfate, a common toxic ingredient, is going to be absorbed, evenly slightly, and over time...

Detective Work

And it will become fine dust in all the land of Egypt and it will cause boils that break out in sores on man and beast (Exodus 9 9, emphasis added). The Egyptians were plagued with boils on their skin. Boils are a sign of potentially serious health concerns. Patients who present themselves to my office with a history of sores, open ulcers and or boils are instructed to have their blood sugar levels evaluated. One of the top devastating conditions affecting modern man is Type II diabetes. Boils...

Detoxified for Health

.Blessed . are the breasts that nursed you (Luke 11 27). ealthy breast tissue is a sign of clear digestive and detoxification function. Just mentioning the word breast cyst or blocked milk duct can send chills down the spine. Thirty percent of American women have fibrocystic breast disease, a benign (noncancerous) condition characterized by round lumps that move freely within the breast tissue. These lumps are usually tender to the touch. In contrast, a cancerous growth in the breast is often...

Detoxification

Cleanse me with hyssop and I will be clean. Wash me, and I will be whiter than snow (Psalm 51 7). e live in a very toxic environment. I focus a large percent of my patient contact time on detoxification. Detoxifying starts by stopping. You need to stop consuming processed food, man-made oils, sugar, and artificial colors. You might be thinking, Dr. Bob, everything I eat is processed and colored. My response eat food without labels. You find them in the produce department not in the prepared...

Dr Bobs Supper

There they made Him a supper and Martha served but Lazarus was one of those who sat at the table with Him (John 12 2). WWDBE What Would Dr. Bob Eat I am asked all the time, what do you eat Well, I do eat some of what Jesus ate such as lamb and fish. However, I don't eat figs, fruit of the vine, and I limit my bread consumption. I never eat processed food or pork. Jesus walked a lot. I run daily. Planning is the key component for eating at home. Generally, I focus on vegetables and protein. I...

Dr Bobs ABCs for Life

He caused .the vegetation for the service of man (Psalm 104 14). It all started in the Garden of Eden. There were fruit trees, plants, and herbs to sustain life. However, current trends in time and family meal management focus on convenience at the expense of the natural quality of enhancing nutrients. Our bodies have had to make do with what they have been fed, leaving our bodies to figure out how to eliminate the toxic residue. As a part of my patient coaching workshops I encourage the...

Drink Living Water

And the Spirit and the bride say, Come and let him who hears say, Come And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely (Revelation 22 17). The desire for water is an inborn need required for survival. Cells in the body are bathed in water. Jesus spoke about thirsting for Him as living water. Persistent unhealthy body signals such as constipation, headaches, skin rashes, bad breath, sinusitis, etc., may all be alarms that your body needs more pure water. Here...

Oil Sustains Life

Then the dove came to him Noah in the evening and behold, a freshly plucked olive leaf was in her mouth (Genesis 8 11). Machines require oil from a quality source to function for long life. We do not have a red light blinking on our foreheads saying, Check Engine Oil. Our machine uses oil to make hormones, cell membranes, energy, and it even gives taste to food. Dry skin, especially in the winter, is a blinking red light that you need oil. Fat and oil consumption can be confusing. An excellent...

Extreme Menstrual Flow

If a woman has a discharge of blood many days, other than at the time of her customary impurity or if it runs beyond her usual time. The leading cause of heavy or extensive menstrual flow is poor diet choices and stress. Stress depletes the body of badly needed whole food B vitamins that are necessary to process estrogen. The liver is programmed to create chemicals to handle the additional emotional load. Fast-paced lifestyles along with emotional highs and lows create additional overload on a...

Fatty Foods Breast Cancer

Women who eat more animal fat have a higher risk of premenopausal breast cancer. (In earlier studies, the same researchers found no link to postmenopausal women.) For roughly eight years, researchers tracked the diets of more than 90,000 premenopausal women, 7,800 of whom were diagnosed with breast cancer (average age 43) during that time. The risk of breast cancer was linked to red meat, whole milk, cream, ice cream, butter, cream cheese, and other cheeses (except cottage and ricotta).38...

Fiber Clean

Jacob gave Esau bread and stew of lentils (Genesis 25 34). Fiber rich food, like beans and legumes, cleanse the small fingerlike projecting villi in the digestive system. Fiber helps lower blood cholesterol and stabilizes blood sugar. Beet and oatmeal fiber prevent colon cancer, constipation, hemorrhoids, obesity, and many other disorders. It is also good for removing certain toxic metals from the body. Because the refining process has removed much of the natural fiber from our foods, the...

Fluid Retention Dropsy Kidney Failure

And behold there was a certain man before him who had dropsy and he healed him and let him go (Luke 14 2-4). Little healing was done in Nazareth because of little faith. Jesus healed all who had the faith to be healed. Dropsy, not a common term today, can be caused by a variety of reasons. Fluid accumulation, swelling, edema, and swollen ankles are more common terms used today. Diuretics are commonly prescribed to treat the symptoms of excessive fluid. This may surprise you, but increasing...

Goodbye Gallstones

Being overweight, female, and over 40 years of age are some of the classic risk factors for getting gallstones. Spending more than 40 hours a week on your fanny may be another, say researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health. Michael Leitzmann and coworkers followed more than 60,000 women who had participated in the Nurses' Health Study since 1986. Between 1986 and 1996, 3,257 of the women had surgery to remove a gallstone. Those who engaged in any exercise for two to three hours a week...

Liposuction No Heart Saver

Liposuction can remove fat cells, but unlike diet and exercise may not cut your risk of heart disease and diabetes. Researchers removed roughly 20 pounds of mostly abdominal fat from l5 obese women (each had at least a 40-inch waist). But after 10 to 12 weeks, there was no change in their insulin resistance, blood sugar, blood pressure, cholesterol, C-reactive protein, or other risk factors for heart disease.53 Natural Prescription for Health If you're overweight, eat less and exercise more....

Gut Size Gallstones

In a study of nearly 30,000 men, those with at least a 40-inch waist had more than double the risk of developing gallstones compared to those with a waist measuring less than 34 inches. The risk was 40 percent higher in men with a 37 or 38-inch waist and 80 percent higher in men with a 39-inch waist. Earlier studies had shown that being overweight also raises the risk of gallstones in women.41 In a second study, women who ate nuts at least five times a week had a 25 percent lower risk of...

HoneyA Sweet Alternative

My son, eat honey because it is good and the honeycomb, which is sweet to your taste (Proverbs 24 13). One of the God-designed sweets is honey. It is mentioned over 50 times in the Bible. Honey is obviously a sweetener designed as a food. What you might not know about honey is that if you eat too much, you may vomit. Eat only as much as you need (Proverbs 25 16). Honey is controversial in that some feel it has the same effect on diet as sugar while others say it does not produce the same...

How Sweet is Sweet Enough

The thief satan-sugar does not come except to steal nutrients and to kill, and destroy (John 10 10). Satan came to steal, kill and destroy. By far, in my experience of treating the most serious conditions, sugar seems to always be at the pivotal starting point. Watch what you feed your kids. Brightly colored packaged treats found at the movie theater and convenience stores should raise a suspicious eye. One particular movie candy that i recently evaluated had sugar, high fructose corn syrup,...

Incline Your Ear to My Tips

My Son, give attention to my words (Proverbs 4 20). In order for you to get what you have never had before, you must do what you have never done before. Read, study, and mediate on the Word of God daily. Talk about it with your spouse, parent, friend, or coworker. What are you learning from the diet and personal journal Where should you start Do not throw any food away. Eat the items you have and slowly add products without trans fat and sugar. Do not make immediate family changes. Go slowly....

Juice and Fiber

Like an apple tree among the tree of the woods, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down in his shade with great delight and his fruit was sweet to my taste (Song of Solomon 2 3). Fresh fruits and vegetables add enormous benefits to the human machine. Always think living food versus canned, frozen, or commercially prepared, vacuumed food and drink. Fresh rules A special note food (that is not organic) on conventional store shelves is often picked before it ripens naturally and has been...

Manmade Fat Versus Godmade

Bring your father and your households and come to me I will give you the best of the land of Egypt, and you will eat the fat of the land (Genesis 45 18). GoD-made food and drink does not need a nutrition label. What is found in nature is organic (without man-made herbicides, pesticides, and synthetic hormones, fertilizers) and has all the complex nutrients to be properly processed in the body. I recently read an interesting title for White Oil. This product has had essentially all the color and...

Melons Fruit of the Vine

We remember the fish we ate freely in Egypt, the cucumbers, the melons. God created an inborn desire for sweets for survival. Human milk has a natural sweetness. But creating a sugar addiction in your infants and toddlers can cause a lifetime of health issues, so don't give your youngsters sugar or high fructose corn syrup. Melons are an excellent source of minerals and vitamins, but limit your watermelon consumption. Watermelon has a high concentration of carbohydrates. I have seen patients...

Mineral Tissue Analysis

.The hair on Samson's head began to grow again (Judges 16 22). Samson's strength from the Lord was a result of him being a Nazarite and not having a razor remove the hair on his head. Interesting. Today modern technology, with the analysis of minerals in hair, can reveal insightful information. I commonly see a deficiency of zinc in individuals who have low energy. Zinc is needed to make insulin, a factor needed for carbohydrate metabolism. Copper is often elevated in individuals with a low...

Never Too Late

Want to stick around to see your great-grandchildren In a study of more than 2,300 people in 11 European countries, those who ate a healthy Mediterranean diet, exercised, didn't smoke, and drank alcohol moderately were more likely to live into their 80s and beyond. The researchers gave the highest diet scores to people who ate less meat, dairy, and saturated fat and more fruits, vegetables, beans, fish, grains, nuts, and unsaturated fats. People with the highest scores had a 23 percent lower...

Optimal Bone Health

O dry bones, hear the Word of the Lord (Ezekiel 37 4). Every structure needs a foundation to support it. The human frame and skeleton is made of bone, cartilage, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. osteoporosis, or loss of calcium from bone, creates a state of fragility. I encourage my patients to eat consistent, adequate amounts of protein with which bone is inter-mixed in the matrix. A quality source of omega 3 oil or flax oil is also important to maintain proper hormone function, especially of...

Plantar Facitis Foot Pain

From the sole of the foot even to the head, there is no soundness in it, but the wounds and bruises and putrefying sores. They have not been closed or bound Or soothed with ointment (Isaiah 1 6). Feet are the foundation of our two-legged biped stance. Jesus talked about feet frequently. The feet of the people in Israel had pain and their sandals never wore out when walking in the desert for years. That's better than the high-priced sneakers of today. One of the challenges for my patients is...

Proper pH

Like one who takes away a garment in cold weather and like vinegar acid on soda alkalinity (Proverbs 25 20). In God's Word, mixing vinegar (which is acidic) and baking soda equals turmoil. In your body, a balanced pH is necessary to function. We evaluate all of our patients' saliva pH. Monitoring the pH level in your saliva is a non-invasive tool we use to check the battery and determine how the body is functioning. Fruits and vegetables shift the body toward an alkaline state. Meat, grains,...

Salad Savvy

Will you walk away from the table with fewer calories if you start your meal with a salad It depends on the salad. Researchers had 42 women eat as much pasta as they wanted for lunch, with or without one of several salads before the pasta. The women ate 12 percent fewer calories when they were given a large salad (3 cups) with low calorie density (veggies plus fat-free dressing and light cheese) than when they ate pasta alone. Even after a small (1 cup) salad, they ate 7 percent fewer calories...

Satisfying Thirst

Early I will seek you. My soul thirsts for you. My flesh longs for you in a dry and thirsty land where there is no water God wants a relationship with us so intently that He relates it to the desire to satisfy thirst. Have you ever been so thirsty that your tongue feels like it is sticking to the roof of your mouth Water is necessary for life. Without water from a pure source we will die. Water is not coffee, tea, fruit juice, chocolate milk, or any commercial product...

See More Eat More

The larger the serving size, the more you're likely to eat, says a study from Pennsylvania State University. Researchers told 51 men and women in their 20s to eat as much macaroni and cheese as they wanted at a no-cost lunch. It didn't matter if they were male or female, overweight or trim. When the portions (either on their plates or on a serving dish) were large (35 ounces), on average they ate about 30 percent more calories than when the portions were smaller (18 ounces). What's more, the...

Shoulder Pain

The God of this people, Israel chose our fathers and exalted the people. When they dwelt as strangers in the land of Egypt and with an uplifted arm He brought them out of it (Acts 13 17, emphasis added). God had use of all His limbs. Raising arms and shoulders is a sign of strength. Aaron supported Moses' arms during a fatigued state, guaranteeing victory (see Exod, 17 12). Can you raise your arms above your head without pain There is a common condition that affects the tissues around the...

Side Pain

And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam and he slept. And He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from the man He made into a woman (Genesis 2 21-22, emphasis added). Did you ever have severe, intense pain that is worse when breathing, often on the left side, the kind of pain that imitates a heart attack Adam contributed a rib for the creation of Eve. Ribs can move and can come out of alignment or subluxated. Ribs have...

Strengthen the Hands

Therefore, strengthen the hands which hang down. God has us in His hand. We are the work of God's hands. Jesus placed His hands on people. Hands with an opposable thumb allow dexterity and manipulation of tools. Hand integrity and strength requires proper input from the neck-based nerve roots. Pain in both hands from carpal tunnel can be caused by decayed discs in the neck, misaligned vertebrae, and poor posture. Thumb pain may be caused by joint inflammation and is helped with 150mg of vitamin...

Sunning

Because the sun has tanned me (Song of Solomon 1 6). God put the sun in the sky to provide light for up to 16 hours a day. The sun's rays are a part of a healthy wellness plan. Sunlight converts the cholesterol in your skin to vitamin D which is needed for calcium absorption. Do you ever notice how many people have lip cold sores after returning home from a sunny winter trip The sun used up their calcium reserves. Cold sores on the lip can be caused by lack of calcium. I encourage my patients...

The Riddle of Right Knee Pain

Therefore strengthen the hands which hang down and the feeble knees U TDut the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of J-J God, for they are foolishness to Him, nor can He know them, because they are spiritually discerned, (1 Cor. 2 14). The human body is one interdependent contiguous tissue. I see a variety of conditions in my practice knee pain can be baffling. Carrying more weight on one foot due to trunk alignment imbalance stresses the knees. Pain on the inside of the knee...

The Whole World in His Hand

We are the clay and you are our potter and all we are the work of your hand (Isaiah 64 8). God has us in His hand. We are blessed that we have a Heavenly Father who wants a relationship with us. When was the last time you sat quietly, worshiped, and praised God, regardless of your current state Raise your hands in worship. Hand and finger pain can be disabling. A common condition I frequently assist is trigger finger. The tendons located on the palm aspect...

What You See Is What You

Then the angel of God spoke to me in a dream saying Lift your eyes now and see that all the rams which leap on the flocks are streaked, speckled and gray spotted (Genesis 31 11-12). Jacob was an interesting character in the Bible. He had favor on his life and communicated with the Lord. God saw something in him. One of my favorite events in Jacob's life is how he was able to take the vision from the Lord and turn it into increase. Laban, Jacob's father-in-law, was favored because of Jacob. They...

Whole Grains Diabetes

Why ask for that sandwich on whole wheat bread People who eat whole grains have a lower risk of diabetes, say researchers at the University of Minnesota and elsewhere. Lawrence Kushi and colleagues gave diet questionnaires to nearly 36,000 healthy Iowa women aged 55 to 69 when the study began in 1986. After six years, 1,141 of the women had been diagnosed with diabetes. Those who consumed the most whole grains (average 3 servings a day) had a 21 percent lower risk of diabetes than those who...

Your Hairs Are Counted

But the very hairs on your head are all numbered (Luke 12 7). Jesus mentioned in the Word that God knows the number of hairs on your head. Did you ever try to count hairs You might get to 75. Hair is on the crown of your head and potentially over most of your body. Hair has many purposes. It conserves body heat, protects the scalp, and is a part of the sensory system. The hair shaft is the part that grows above the skin surface. It is alive and is affected by hormones, enzymes, blood,...

Your Liver Your Lifeline

Till an arrow struck his liver (Proverbs 7 23). The liver is an incredible organ with hundreds of known functions. It is so highly regarded in Eastern and Asian cultures that newlyweds figuratively exchange livers instead of the heart as we are accustomed to in Western societies. The liver is commonly seen as the literal oil filter of the body-but it does so much more. Reserves of blood are stored in the liver along with fat soluble vitamins including A, D, E, and K. Your liver creates bile...

Nut Butter

So their father, Jacob, finally said to them, If it can't be avoided, then at least do this. Fill your bags with the best products of the land. Take them to the man as gifts balm, honey, spices, myrrh, pistachio nuts and almonds (Genesis 43 11 NLT emphasis added). An excellent source of nutrients is from plant-based foods. Plants take in organic minerals from the soil and transfer them into edible, useable building blocks for our use. Think of nuts as seeds for growth. In the Bible, God created...

Skip the Milk

For everyone who partakes in milk only is unskilled in the Word of righteousness for he is a babe. But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil (Hebrews 5 13 Spirit Filled Life Bible, NKJV, emphasis added). From my experience, a majority of the chronic no known cause of body pain and breakdown is sugar, man-made fat, and milk. Healthier human beings were raised on breast milk and whole food....

Meal Prep

Meal preparation along together with understanding food combinations is essential. What you eat, when you eat, and with whom you eat has an influence on the final product that enters the cell. I generally see optimal health in patients who do not eat their meals with a dessert. Animal protein mixes best with non-starch food like broccoli, cabbage, beans, and mixed greens. Avoid pastas, grain, and potatoes with animal protein. It's always more beneficial to eat fruit alone, without combining it...

Moreover the word of the Lord came to me, saying, Jeremiah, What do you see And I said, I see a branch of almond tree, Then the Lord said to me, You have seen well, for I am ready to perform my Word (Jeremiah 1 11-12). Nuts are an excellent source of protein and good fat. There has been confusion about nuts because of low-fat restricted diets, but I recommend nuts to my patients. Over time even patients with bowel challenges can start eating nuts again. I generally prepare a small container of...

Kor of Soda

The ordinance concerning oil, the bath of oil, is one-tenth of a bath from a kor. A kor is a homer or ten baths, for ten baths are a homer (Ezekiel 45 14). The average American consumes over a kor of soft drinks (soda) per year. A kor is a biblical measure of 50+ gallons. That's a lot of soda. Teenage males consume the most as many as four to six 12-ounce containers daily. Serving sizes continue to expand as does the waste line of the more than 15 percent obese youths in America. High fructose...

How God Heals

And they did not repent of their murders or their sorceries (Revelation 9 21) (Sorceries Generally described as the use of medicine or drugs.)21 God designed our bodies to eat and eliminate. When you make a decision to eat a food item that does not promote optimal health, do not fret too much. It will be eliminated. Matthew 15 17 says, Do you not yet understand that whatever enters your mouth goes into the stomach and it's eliminated However, continued consumption of toxic food substances...

You Eat What You Speak

A man's stomach shall be satisfied from the fruit of his mouth from the produce of his lips he shall be filled (Proverbs 18 20). Are you happy with your lot in life Physically, your stomach is filled with items that you purchase. Your ability to create income is directly related to the words you speak. When was the last time you took an extended learning program to increase your ability to communicate Skill sets need to be sharp. The problems you solve in life impact your financial well being....

Protect Yourself From Worldwide Pollution

Because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now Creation groans, anxiously awaiting the return of Jesus. We live in a global community. Pollution from around the world settles in distant landing spots. Your liver is the critical organ to process the various pollutants. You need to be conscious of this and be disciplined to...

Lemon Zest

And ye shall take on the first day the fruit of goodly trees (Leviticus 23 39-40 KJV, emphasis added). (According to rabbis, the fruit of goodly trees means lemons.) I thoroughly enjoy watching the Food Channel on TV or better yet, going to a culinary class. I recently learned about zest at one class. Purchase organic lemons and wash them thoroughly. You need a grater with small sharp surfaces for cutting. Grate some lemon skin or peel and add it to your favorite marinade for your gas grill or...

Vitamin E Eyes

Vitamin E supplements flunked a test to see if they could reduce the risk of macular degeneration, a common cause of blindness in older people. (The macula is the center of the retina.) In an Australian study7 of 1,000 healthy volunteers aged 55 to 80, those who took 500 IU of vitamin E every day for four years were no less likely to be diagnosed with macular degeneration than those who took a placebo (sugar pill).

Natural Flavor Spices

Five hundred shekels of cassia cinnamon and a bin of olive oil When God created the planet He provided for us naturally all of our wants, needs, and desires. One of my favorite spices is cinnamon. The aroma of cinnamon on anything activates every smell and taste receptor in my body. There are many ways to use organic cinnamon. Be creative. Start your day with fresh, whole grain oatmeal. Add some raw almonds and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Bake some apples (leave the peel on to prevent loss of...

Foot Gear

And he preached, saying, There comes one after me who is mightier than I whose sandal strap I am not worthy to stoop down and loose (Mark 1 7). Proper foot gear is a necessity if you don't want bunions, hammer toes, and calluses. John the Baptist said he was not worthy to even unlace the thong or latchet of Jesus' sandal. The sandal of the chosen people lasted 40 years. When God makes something He does it right. Here's a thought. If you daily spend a full eight to ten hours on your feet change...

Winning the Pain Game

.much pain is in every side (Nahum 2 10). I have read that up to 80 percent of U.S. population suffers with some type of pain. Medications have come and gone with high hope and expectation of eliminating some types of pain. Pain caused by an injury, most of the time, heals without any residuals unless it was severe with extreme tissue damage. insidious, or chronic pain (the annoying type), can literally wear a person out. Some thoughts There is a fat, tissue-like hormone called a prostaglandin...

Jacobs

Now when he saw that he did not prevail against him, he touched the socket of his hip and the socket of Jacob's hip was out of joint as He wrestled with him (Genesis 32 25). JACOB was a fighter. He fought until the angel of the Lord knocked his hip out of joint. Hip alignment is one of the keys in carrying body weight. A posture imbalance, with weight being carried on one side more than the other because of trauma or injury, can cause one hip to wear out before the other. Obesity creates...

Overcoming Gravity

And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands for us (Psalm 90 17). Jesus said in John 16 33 that in the world you will have tribulation which is translated in English to mean thilipsis. Thilipsis is pressure as in the pressure applied in an olive press. Jesus went on to say, Be of good cheer, I have overcome thilipsis . You can experience thilipsis on your nervous system because of gravity pressing bones on sensitive nerves with poor posture, injuries,...

John and Peter

So they both ran together and the other disciple outran Peter and came to the tomb first (John 20 4 emphasis added). What an exhilarating run it must have been for John and Peter on the way to the tomb of Jesus. Imagine the thoughts going through their heads. I started running in high school to be with my buddies on the track team. Since then I have run off and on starting again when my son was 2 years of age. That first block seemed like miles. Today my wife, Deb, and I run every morning...

The Lamp of Your Body

If, therefore, your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light (Matthew 6 22). Light penetrates to the back of the eye. You actually see with your brain through the two video cams or your eyes. Jesus healed the blind. You can be physically and spiritually blind since the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God (see 1 Cor. 2 14). Your ability to receive sunlight is affected by your mineral level consumption. I have had patients who...

Aspirin Death Sentence

Then Joshua called for them, and he spoke to them, saying, Why have you deceived us. (Joshua 9 22). This may be a huge shock to some of you, but taking an aspirin every day is not normal or natural. You are putting a chemical in your body that is altering or changing how your cells were designed to work. These are the questions Why does your body need it What is wrong The theory is that if your blood is thin you are more likely to survive a heart attack. But why What caused your blood to get...

What Can I

Then out of the ground the Lord God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food (Genesis 2 9). You can eat anything you want as long as it rots. We live in a toxic environment. Man, in his ignorance, has created food items that have a long shelf life, increasing profits but decreasing healthiness. Use God's wisdom when choosing food to eat. The recommendations found in Leviticus 11 and 12 promote life. They are not there to punish you but to save you from having body...

.Take and eat it and it synthetic sweeteners will make your stomach bitter, but it will be as sweet as honey in your mouth (Revelation 10 9). Sugar is a secret killer in America. Sugar is lurking in packaged entrees, condiments, sauces, dressings, and soups. It can be found in nearly every imaginable commercially available item in conventional grocery stores. Tip Always make a shopping list and never shop when you are hungry. Read labels as though you were on a reconnaissance mission like a...

Eyes Windows to the Soul

You hold my eyelids open (Psalm 77 4). God created the body to be an interdependent unit working together for one common purpose, just as He created the Church Body for one purpose. Visions, seeing with your mind's eye as Jacob did in Genesis 31 11, are a direct connection to the throne room. Are you bothered by spots or floaters in front of your eyes Commonly called vitreous floaters, these annoying events are often self-correcting by adding one organic carrot, raw or grated, on your mixed...

Foreword

If the physical body is truly a temple, then its protection, maintenance, preservation and care is the responsibility of the host. No one can love and will love your body more than you. Over the years, as a pastor and spiritual leader, I have magnified and focused on the soul and spiritual aspects of the human and in many ways downplayed and almost ignored the role, value, importance, and significance of the physical body. However, after more than 30 years of research, study, and personal...

Cravings

And the world passes away and disappears and with it the forbidden cravings (1 John 2 17 AMP). Ultimately, craving a deep relationship with the Lord will satisfy all your worldly desires. However, forbidden cravings or addictions, result in a very poor state of health. The most common craving i help patients overcome is the addiction to sugar. Sugar robs the body of minerals and vitamins. Once the cycle is started, it is hardly different than being addicted to drugs, including alcohol. i...

My suggestion to you is to prayerfully seek two others who will participate with you over the next 12 months to reach your goal of...

Caffeine Parkinsons Disease

Caffeine may lower the risk of Parkinson's disease, say researchers at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs in Honolulu. Robert Abbott and colleagues studied more than 8,000 Hawaiian men of Japanese ancestry who were asked about their diets when they entered the Honolulu Heart Program in the mid-1960s and again in the early 1970s. Over the next 30 years, 102 of the men were diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. Those who drank no coffee had a two to three times greater risk of Parkinson's than...

Feed Your Kids Right

The children of your people will live in security. Their children's children will thrive in your presence (Psalm 102 28 NLT). Children are precious and what grandma consumed, smoked, or drank has the potential to impact your child's health. I have observed that the second child often times can have liver congestion or stress because mom and the first child especially with the toxic food and pollution today may have been overburdened. It is not uncommon for me to see female patients have their...

Yogurt Cause of Stealth Pain

Your lips, O my spouse, drip as the honeycomb honey and milk are under your tongue (Song of Solomon 4 11 emphasis added). Paul said all things are lawful for us but not necessarily good for us. Commercial, conventional, American yogurt has permeated the breakfast and snack time market. People purchase yogurt for the calcium and protein it contains. The basic physiology is right on target, but let me share a few facts. Read the label on the yogurt container. Sugar and high fructose corn syrup...

Fruit and Veggie Diet

Can a diet rich in fruits and vegetables keep you trim Nutritionists say yes, and now there's data to back them up. Researchers tracked more than 74,000 women aged 38 to 63 for 12 years. Those who boosted their intake of fruits and vegetables by four servings a day had a 24 percent lower risk of obesity than those who cut their fruits and vegetables by about two servings a day.9 Natural Prescription for Health Pack some baby carrots for snacks, start breakfast with wedges of cantaloupe, serve...

Shine as Lights in the World

Do all things without complaining and disputing that you may become blameless and harmless children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation among whom you shine as lights of the world (Philippians 2 14-15). Whatever you do with these new patterns, please do not whine or complain. Learn to be an example. Make positive comments. When I gave my life to the Lord I continued to drink alcohol. I was released from alcohol four years later. Not only was alcohol no longer...

Is There Any Taste in the Egg White

Can flavorless food be eaten without salt, or is there any taste in the white of an egg (Job 6 6). Eggs are one of the most complete foods on the planet, but we have lived in egg phobia for nearly 30 years. Eggs were discussed in God's Word in relation with salt. Can you believe it Your body needs sodium. Sodium is an important mineral needed to reduce body stiffness and control allergies. But sodium chloride or table salt is an unhealthy combination. We suggest Celtic sea salt in our practice....

Bentonite Clay Toxic Bowel Aide

O house of Israel, Can I not do with you as this potter says the Lord. Look as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are you in My hand, O House of Israel (Jeremiah 18 6). Jesus is the potter, we are the clay. Clay, in a skilled potter's hand, can be transformed into magnificent pieces of fine art or containers holding gorgeous bouquets of Hawaiian flowers. Over doing it, with too much food, wrong food choices, limited water intake, or excessive toxic exposure, can create an intestinal lining on...

Accelerated Healing

He was wounded for our transgressions. He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities (Isaiah 53 5). Jesus was bruised for our iniquity. We have been healed by the stripes Jesus took for us. We have everlasting life because of His obedience. Patients who heal slowly, in the natural, often have a zinc deficiency. Slow healers with excess scarring normally have low zinc and high copper. Bruising easily and without cause could be due to aspirin, blood thinners, and salmon oil use. Seniors with poor...

Subluxation

These things I have spoken to you that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation thilipsis , but be of good cheer I have overcome the world (John 16 33). When God created man He breathed life into us so we are self-healing beings. Our brains are so intricately created with options that we will never even capitalize on its full capacity. A continuation of the brain is the spinal cord which is encased in a moveable conduit called the spinal column. Gravity continuously and...

See This Truth

And He said to him, Go and wash in the pool of Siloam. So he went and washed and came back seeing (John 9 7). Pursue health from the inside out, creating the environment that sharpens the saw to live without burnout. The majority of sickness and poor health I treat today is self-inflicted. Again Poor health is usually self-inflicted. I like to call it death by denial. Your nervous system controls the function of your body.

Prevent Pestilence

Nor the pestilence that walks in darkness. Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday (Psalm 91 6). Pestilence can be any event, condition, internal or external, that interferes with your ability to thrive as God intended. A modern-day pestilence, unlike locusts or grasshoppers in biblical times that were seasonal or short lived, is cancer. I applaud the progress that has been achieved so far, but is irradiating and injecting chemicals into a body with a stressed immune system the...

Tennis Elbow

He has shown strength with His arm (Luke 1 51). God showed strength in His arm protecting His people Israel. The arm of the Lord protects us today from satan. Arms can be used for offensive and defensive purposes. Arm pain, especially elbow pain, prevents even the basic of human functions. Elbow pain on the outside aspect is seen in motions of twisting the arm and hand, as in hitting a tennis ball. The structures involved are normally tendons and its coverings. The condition is teno-synovitis....

Cut Off My Headache

Therefore David ran and stood over the Philistine, took his sword and drew it out of its sheath and killed him, and cut of his head with it (1 Samuel 17 51). David did a favor for Goliath by literally cutting off a headache. I am aware that you may figuratively like to have your head taken away sometimes. Headaches can be so painful that people have been known to pound their heads on a wall to relieve the head pain. I have treated many patients with that history. Headaches that don't ever go...

Better Than Statins

What lowers LDL (bad) cholesterol better than statin drugs Statins plus a healthy diet. Researchers gave 120 men with high cholesterol either the statin drug, Zocor, or a placebo (sugar pill) and instructed them to eat either their usual diet or a Mediterranean-type diet. The Mediterranean diet was high in fruits and vegetables and low in saturated and trans fats (the meat was lean and the cheese, milk, and yogurt were low-fat). The diet replaced the saturated and trans fats with unsaturated...

Fat Craving Snack Food

So he called the name of that place Kibroth Hattaavgh, because there they buried the people who had yielded to craving (Numbers 11 34). I believe that people crave food unknowingly. The public is attracted to the preservatives, taste enhancers, and nitrates. The body literally has an endorphin reaction high from the excitotoxin stimulation. Trans fats, partially and totally hydrogenated, are in salty, addictive snack foods. Americans consume approximately 25 to 30 pounds of snacks per year....

Balancing Human Hormones

If a woman has a discharge of blood for many days, other than a part of her customary (Leviticus 15 25). The woman with the issue of blood had a hormone imbalance that precipitated heavy flow. Proper liver function is critical in keeping estrogen balanced with progesterone. Elevated estrogen is challenging to deal with today due to the addition of man-made, synthetic compounds called xenohormones which mimic estrogen. Our toxic environment with excess xenohormones increases estrogen in a female...

Feed Your Humpty Dumpty Body Right

It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body and there is a spiritual body (1 Corinthians 15 44). There is much confusion today in the area of ideal weight levels. The variety of body types and circumstances, including childbirth and discipline to control appetite, need to be considered. The body's energy system works very effectively with carbohydrate consumption. Fruits and vegetables burn very well in a clean machine. A stressed pancreas from refined...

Ducking Diabetes

Weight loss and exercise prevent diabetes more effectively than drugs, says a study of more than 3,000 overweight, middle-aged people who had higher-than-normal blood sugar (but not diabetes).12 Each person was given either a placebo, Glucophage (a drug used to treat high blood sugar), or 16 one-on-one sessions to help them lose weight and exercise. After nearly three years, 29 percent of the people in the placebo group had developed diabetes, compared with 22 percent of the Glucophage takers....
