Healthy Eating Tip #10

Have Fun

Once you implement the healthy eating  practices, we’ve talked about over the last nine weeks, they’ll become second nature, and they won’t feel like work.

Shopping, preparing food in advance, even occasional fasting, will become more of a ritual. You won’t even think about it. It’ll just be the way you do things.

Healthy Eating Tip #9

Practice Intermittent Fasting

Nature speaks to the idea that there is an ebb and flow to all creation. The sun rises; the sun sets. The seasons come; the seasons go. The tide comes in; the tide goes out. The waves crash on the shore; they gently recede.

Our bodies are made to embrace this same type of ebb and flow. We are to push into stress, and then pull back. Intermittent fasting fits very nicely into this model. There’s a time for plenty, and a time for fasting.

Intermittent Fasting For The Spirit

How Intermittent Fasting can Enhance Connectedness to God

Intermittent fasting has the power to benefit us physically, mentally and emotionally. Those benefits go deep and wide. However, the spiritual benefits are by far, the best part of intermittent fasting.

This is the last post in this series and we’ve truly saved the best for last.

Intermittent Fasting For The Spirit

Throughout the bible, we see people humbling themselves before God by fasting. This is true for the Jewish nation in the Old Testament, as well as the New Testament Christians.

For centuries, fasting has been an ordinary part of the lives of people who walk with God. If you’re a follower of Jesus as I am. And you believe in holistic health, then intermittent fasting should become a regular part of your routine.

The Most Important Ingredient For Health

Experience Holistic Peace

Peace is perhaps the most important ingredient for health. Not just peaceful thoughts, but peace in every part of our being.

Peace

C.S. Lewis said: “We are a spirit; we have a soul; and we live in a body.” We’re created as tripartite beings. All three aspects of our being are interconnected, and interdependent.

In other words, what affects one part, will affect the others, for better or for worse. We cannot neglect one part of our being, and expect the other parts to thrive. Nor can we nurture one part, without benefiting the others.

There’s a body-soul-spirit, and a spirit-soul-body connection to our makeup. A very effective way to build health, it to reduce stress, and pursue peace holistically, body, soul, and spirit.

Marriage Is Good For Your Health

How Marriage Dramatically Extends Life Expectancy

The topic of marriage seems to be coming up a lot lately. There’s a lot of discussion about how we should define marriage. A traditional marriage was originally defined in the bible to be a covenantal union between one man, and one woman, for life. (Genesis 2:24)

Marriage is good for your health

A traditional marriage, has many benefits, including: emotional support, safe sex, and financial security. Homes with a traditional marriage are also the best way to raise children.

These facts are well established. However, a lesser understood concept is that marriage is good for your health. In terms of improving your overall health and well-being, your spouse is perhaps your greatest ally.

Debunking Germ Theory

Is Dis-ease Caused from Without or Within?

Western medicine has bought into germ theory, hook, line, and sinker. Germ theory states that germs (bacteria and viruses) cause disease. In other words, sickness is caused from without.

What if sickness and disease are caused from within? What if it’s really a favorable environment within the host (person) that gives the germs a chance to thrive? This could change everything.

Ask any gardner; a thick, healthy lawn is naturally weed resistant. Our bodies behave in a similar fashion. A strong, healthy internal system is naturally resistant to illness.

Take Care Of Yourself First

I often hear the objection that when it comes to health, putting yourself first is vanity, selfish, or even unspiritual.
