4 Tips to Help You Heal God's Way

I still vividly remember how my mom’s health quickly declined within a few months; her pill intake went up tremendously and her health went down to the point where she was no longer able to walk nor go to the bathroom on her own. She ended up in a hospital where she got no rest whatsoever and then finally spent the last month of her life in a rehab center bed-ridden and being completely taken care of by the medical staff. The first week she seemed to recuperate while her sister was visiting her from Kenya, and after that, her health continued to deteriorate quickly. Her arms and legs grew weaker and weaker, her vision pretty much gone, she had no control over her bladder and bowels. I was heart-broken to see her this way. The doctors recommended that she be put on hospice so that she could just sleep, which is actually very wise advice. Her medication was supposed to then be all taken away and only pain pills administered, but this never happened. They continued to do these cleaning and scraping routines on her legs, which left her legs completely without nerve endings and totally black, blue and red, but they were wrapped all the time so nobody could see that. Her stomach was extremely bloated and I thought it would burst like a balloon at any time. She and my the rest of my family wanted to continue down the allopathic medical path, though, and I was tired of fighting. Unfortunately, I also spent less and less time with the Lord asking for His wisdom and following His direction because I was tired of fighting with my brothers and their wives, plus my mom wanted to follow the medical doctor orders. I finally left on my anniversary trip and she passed away a few days later, with one of my brothers at her side. 

 

It was a horrifying ending for my mom’s life. I was glad that the torture was over when the Lord accepted her into heaven on my anniversary day. This experience helped me realize how important it was to continue the work God had called me to do - to teach people to heal His way, relying on HIS wisdom and the things that He has given us to take care of our body, mind, and emotions. In this blog post, I am giving you four tips. Incorporate them all into your life because they work synergistically. This is what I have been doing for many years now and I am definitely healthier and fitter than I have even been in my life. 

 

1. Anoint the person (or yourself) with oil and pray (James 5:12) Pray for wisdom; pray that God will give you the exact blueprint of what YOU need to do because He knows what you need to heal more than you do and more than any doctor. And as far as oil goes, it wasn’t just plain olive oil that was used back then. I highly encourage you to learn about the essential oils used back then since there are so many biblical references about them.

 

2. As Hippocrates said - your food is your medicine. Focus on eating foods that will heal you physically and emotionally. Trash the “foods” you know are bad for you and eat healthy ones that are filled with nutrients. Go organic and choose meats from animals properly raised and killed. Drink only raw milk and eat cheese from this kind of milk. Switch to EINKORN flour and pasta - I highly recommend reading the book “Ancient Einkorn” by D Gary Young, which I just finished reading.

 

3. Fill any gaps in your nutrition with excellent quality supplements that your body will truly absorb.

 

4. Consistently engage in other healthy habits. What does your sleep routine look like right now? Most of us are sadly sleep deficient which is causing devastating problems. What personal care products are you using? Most have ingredients in them that are slowly killing them. How much water are you drinking daily? Is it filtered? Are you exercising 30 minutes daily? Not hours daily, just work up to 30 minutes of something that is challenging for YOU,
