“And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food;” Genesis 2:9a KJV
“And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat” Genesis 2:16 KJV
“In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits and yielded her fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.” Revelation 22:2 KJV
I like to call myself a realistic naturopath. I recognize the God breathed value in His created plant kingdom for my everyday health, well-being and healing. Considering the scriptures begin and end with instructions on using the plant kingdom for food and healing: for Adam and his decedents and for all who live in the New Heavens and New Earth as described in Revelation 21-22; I decided to believe God and follow His word.
In this epoch of time in which we live and the future New Earth, the plant kingdom has many purposes, two of which are for food and the healing of our bodies. It does not take much time to research the nutritional value of a specific plant. Scientists around the globe have studied and experimented with many plants and discovered their amazing health benefits.
We suffer many maladies needlessly. There is healing and death in the foods and liquids we consume. It is contrary to reason if we say, “It tastes good” if it will kill us. Tobacco, alcohol and sodas have no nutritional value but instead destroy our bodies in a myriad of ways, yet we ingest them on at a horrendous rate.
God brings healing to our bodies through many modalities, yet we must then take that healing we receive and appropriate life sustaining lifestyles to maintain whole, healthy bodies; if we do not change our end will be agonizing death.
The sooner we stop poisoning our bodies and begin true nourishment to every cell we will slow the aging process and live stronger, longer lives to fulfill the mission God created us to accomplish. Living healthy is easy, delicious and can be started no matter our age.
My first suggestions would be to stop immediately the consumption of tobacco, alcohol and sodas and increase the consumption of water. Stop poisoning and start healing.
You are an important person. You are loved by God. You are needed by humanity to fulfill your mission on this earth. Take care of your body. Seek wise counsel how to achieve optimum health-it is neither expensive nor difficult to do. It just needs you to take the first step.
