Are you looking for a fresh NEW START in your
health? God's 8 Laws of Health - which is the NEW START program of:
Nutrition * Exercise * Water * Sunshine * Temperance * Rest * Air * and
Trust in God. These are God's Natural Remedies! Much of what is written
on God's 8 Laws of Health - the NEW START program - Nutrition, Exercise,
Water, Sunshine, Temperance, Rest, Air and Trust in God was written by
Ellen White. She wrote extensively on God's Natural Remedies. Most of
the quotes have a date by them... check it out...you will be amazed at
the light she had so early in time! As early as 1868 she was telling
people that meat eating was the cause of cancer and was not safe to eat!
And it 1899, she said it wouldn't be long and milk and dairy products
would no longer be safe! Science and Doctors are just catching up to her
with all the scientific information supporting exactly what she said in
regards to the safety of meat eating and dairy products and the rest of
God's Natural Remedies.
Dangers of Meat Eating and Dairy Products
"The following list of common complaints can be directly linked to
the consumption of meat and diary products : hives, sinusitis, heart
disorders, seborrhea, impaired digestion, obesity, dermatitis, diarrhea,
edema, acne, gas and bloating, body odor, dry scaly skin, constipation,
allergies, bedwetting, fatigue, hyperactivity, colitis attacks,
headaches, colic, depression, anger, congestion and runny nose,
irritability, excess mucus, hemorrhoids, impotence, malabsorption,
hormone imbalance and hot flashes!" Prescription for Dietary Wellness,
"The liability to take disease is increased tenfold by meat-eating."
Counsels on Diet and Foods, pg. 386. (1868).
"The intellectual, the moral, and the physical powers are depreciated
by the habitual use of flesh meats. Meat-eating deranges the system
beclouds the intellect, and blunts the moral sensibilities. We say to
you, dear brother and sister, your safest course is to let meat alone."
Counsels on Diet and Foods, pg. 391 (1868).
"The tissues of the swine swarm with parasites. Of the swine, God
said, "It is unclean unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh, or touch
their dead carcass." This command was given because swine's flesh is
unfit for food. Swine are scavengers, and this is the only use they were
intended to serve. Never, under any circumstances, was their flesh to be
eaten by human beings." Counsels on Diet an Foods, pg. 392. (1905)
"7 out o 10 people who eat pork have trichina antibodies in their
blood streams." Dr. Agatha Thrash, Uchee Pines Institute.
BLV - Bovine Leukemia Virus - is on the rise in the US. 20% of adult
dairy cows have it and 60% of dairy and beef herds surveyed are infected
with BLV. More than 47% - almost half- of the dairy cows in Florida were
found to be infected with BLV. That is the highest concentration in the
world other than Venezuela!
It is much healthier to use whole grains, not refined ones. No white
flour, white pasta, white rice, white bread , etc. "THE WHITER THE BREAD
....THE SOONER YOU'RE DEAD!!!"
Whole grains are good for all blood sugar disorders. Make sure that
the bread label says the word "whole" and not just "wheat", otherwise it
is really just plain old white flour.
It's very important to vary your grains...don't eat the same grain
everyday. Most people have wheat everyday. Try adding Spelt, Kamut,
Corn, Barley, Millet, Rice, Rye or even more exotic grains Amaranth or
Grains should be thoroughly cooked or baked. Raw grains are not
healthy. Many people are allergic to gluten - the protein in the wheat
an other grains. Grains that do not contain gluten are: Rice, Corn,
Quinoa and Amaranth.
Sugar is not good for the stomach. It causes fermentation, and this
clouds the brain and brings peevishness into the disposition." Counsels
on Diet and Foods , pg. 327. (1901)
"Free sugar has been shown to reduce the ability of white blood cells
to function properly, to aggravate heart disease, to reduce lifespan, to
contribute to alcoholism, mental illness, high blood pressure, skin
disease, and enlarged liver and kidneys." Nutrition for Vegetarians.,
pg. 39. (Dr. Agatha Thrash).
Sugar is "food for cancer."
Believe it or not - back in the 1800's sugar was "by
Healthy Sugars: Barley Malt, Brown Rice Syrup, Honey, Date Sugar,
Molasses, Fructose, Stevia
"In order for the brain to have clearness and strength of thought
retentive memory, and mental power, the muscles of the body should have
exercise a portion of each day in order to preserve and improve health."
The Health Reformer, March 1, 1873. (Ellen White)
"When the weather will permit, all who can possibly do so ought to
walk in the open air every day, summer an winter. But the clothing
should be suitable for the exercise, and the feet should be well
protected. A walk, even in winter, would be more beneficial to the
health than all the medicine the doctors may prescribe. For those who
can walk, walking is preferable to riding. The muscles and veins are
enabled better to perform their work. There will be increased vitality,
which is so necessary to health. The lungs will have needful action; for
it is impossible to go out in the bracing air of a winter's morning
without inflating the lungs." Counsels on Health, pg. 552.
"The chief if not the only reason why many become invalids is that
the blood does not circulate freely, and the changes in the vital fluid,
which are necessary to life and health, do not take place. They have not
given their bodies exercise not their lungs food, which is pure, fresh
air, therefore it is impossible for the blood to be vitalized., and it
pursues its course sluggish through the system. The more we exercise,
the better will be the circulation of the blood. More people die for want
of exercise than through over -fatigue; very man more rust out than wear
out. Those who accustom themselves to proper exercise in the open air,
will generally have a good and vigorous circulation. We are more
dependent upon the air we breathe than upon the food we eat. Men and
women, young and old, who desire health and who would enjoy active life,
should remember that they cannot have these without a good circulation.
Whatever their business and inclinations are, they should make up their
minds to exercise in the open air as much as they can." (Ellen White).
Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.
"Pure water to drink and fresh air to breathe invigorate the vital
organs, purifies the blood, and helps nature in her task of overcoming
the bad conditions of the system." (Ellen White).
Many health problems would be eliminated, including bowel and bladder
problems, anxiety attacks, and food tolerance reactions, burning in the
stomach, headaches, colitis pain, hot flashes and many other problems IF
enough water were drunk.
Water flushes out the toxins that cause many health problems.
If those who are afflicted would assist nature in her effort by the
use of pure, soft water , much suffering would be prevented." (Ellen
Drinking lots of pure water everyday will definitely help to prevent
This (sunshine) is one of nature's most healing agents." (Ellen
"If all would appreciate the sunshine, and expose every article of
clothing to its drying, purifying rays, mildew and mold would be
prevented....This is the only way rooms can be kept from
impurities....Every room in our dwellings should be daily thrown open to
the healthful rays of the sun and the purifying air should be invited
in. This will be a preventive of disease." Health Reformer Articles.
Many have become afraid of the sun, thinking they will get skin
cancer from it. We believe that the sun does not cause skin cancer
(unless you are constantly out in it, burning yourself), but rather, it
is a purifier.....it brings to the surface (which is your skin) the
cancers and toxins and germs that are already in your system - trying to
flush them out of your body. The sunshine is one of God's 8 Natural
"In order to preserve health, temperance in all things is
- temperance in labor, temperance in eating and drinking." How to Live,
pg. 57. (Ellen White).
"True temperance teaches us to dispense entirely with everything
hurtful, and to use judiciously that which is healthful." The Faith I
Live By, pg. 231. (Ellen White).
Many Christians believe that "Moderation" is the KEY. We strongly
disagree. Think about it...is cocaine OK in moderation? Of course not!
You see, True Temperance means to abstain completely from things that
are bad for you and to use "moderately" those things that are good for
About a 100 years ago, there was something called - The Temperance
Pledge . At that time, people who signed it were promising to not drink
or have anything to do with liquor. It would be good if we could have a
Temperance Pledge today. But, it should include way more than liquor.
Our bodies are the "temple" of God. We should not put anything into it
that is not good for it. Let's think about that for a moment. What are
some common things that people put into their bodies that are not good
for them? Coffee? Cigarette smoke? Chocolate? The vast majority of the
Artificial Sweeteners? And what about all the Prescription Drugs so many
people are on? The side-effects of many of them are horrendous!

the things that need changing in your lifestyle, don't give up! Email

"Air is the free blessing of heaven, calculated to electrify the
whole system." (Ellen White)
"Thousands have died for want of pure water and pure air, who might
have lived...These blessings they need in order to become well. If they
would become enlightened, and let medicine alone and accustom themselves
to outdoor exercise, and to air in their houses, summer and winter, and
use soft water for drinking and bathing purposes, they would be
comparatively well and happy instead of dragging out a miserable
existence." How to Live, pg. 56. (Ellen White)
Pure, clean air, is another one of God's 8 Natural Remedies.
"I know that from the testimonies given me from time to time, for
brain workers, that sleep is worth far more before than after midnight.
Two hours good sleep before 12 o'clock is worth more than four hours
after 12 o'clock...(Ellen White)
"Give yourself proper time to sleep. They who sleep give nature time
to build up and repair the weary waste of the organs." (Ellen White).
"The number of hours of sleep generally needed varies with
circumstances The average is seven to nine. In general one should sleep
when sleepy and not try to sleep more. Growing children require more
sleep than grown-ups." (Ellen White).
"Ones best sleep is with the stomach practically empty. It is true
that food puts one to sleep at first, by diverting blood from the head;
but it disturbs sleep later. Water, unless it induces bladder-action
during the night, or even fruit, may be taken without injury before
retiring. If one goes to bed with an empty stomach, he can often get
along well with six or seen hours sleep, but if he goes to bed soon
after a hearty meal, he usually needs from eight to ten hours sleep...It
has already been pointed out that sleeping outdoors is more restful than
sleeping indoors." How to Live, pg. 120-121. (Ellen White).
Many people, when they need rest , instead of going to sleep, drink
coffee to stay awake. That is exactly the opposite of what they need.
Coffee and ephedrine and energy pills cannot replace rest. Rest is also
one of God's 8 Natural Remedies.
VIII. TRUST IN GOD
"Gratitude, rejoicing, benevolence, trust in God 's love and care --
these are health's greatest safeguards." My Life Today, pg. 151. (Ellen
"Not a few, in this Christian age and Christian nation, resort to
mediums rather than trust to the power of the living God. The mother,
watching by the sick-bed of her child, exclaims, "I can do no more. Is
there no physician who has power to restore my child?" She is told of
the wonderful cures performed by some clairvoyant or magnetic healer,
and she trusts her dear one to his charge, placing it as verily in the
hands of Satan as though he were standing by her side. And in how many
instances is the future life of the child controlled by a Satanic power
which it seems powerless to brea!" The Signs of the Times, March 24,
1887. (Ellen White).
Science has proven now, that people who trust in God , and have
faith, come through illnesses and surgeries better than those who do not
trust in God.

a booklet called "Steps to Christ" you can have for free. Just visit the
