Bad Germs Can't Beat Good Habits

I have been on a quest for the past twenty years. What should we eat? Does God care how we feed ourselves? Are there principles in the field of nutrition that you don’t need a Ph.D. to follow? Yes, I believe there are principles governing every area of life to guide us in decision making. 


The first principle becomes apparent as you look at the healthier peoples of the world.


Most of the food we eat should be raw. God packaged our nutrition in plants to preserve it. Even if we eat meat, the nutrients that we get from the meat came from the plants that the animal ate. God’s packaging is best. 


Enzymes hold molecules in positions which facilitate chemical reaction, then released the new molecule. See video below.





The reason that fresh, live fruits and vegetables are so important are the enzymes. Enzymes are necessary for each reaction that happens in every living cell. When our diet does not provide working enzymes to our body, our body must use the enzymes in our white blood cells to digest and assimilate our food. This depletes our immune system and causes chronic problems. 

But what about the seasons when there is no food growing? That is a good question. The easiest way to preserve food and yet retain its God given nutrients is to dry it. Drying at very low temperatures removes the moisture without destroying the nutrients and enzymes. Drying stops the chemical reactions in every cell of the food, thus preserving it, yet without destroying the enzymes. (Freezing slows the reactions down, but requires a lot of space and energy to maintain.) Many properly dried food s are available in stores or from cooperatives. But the best dried food is that which you have grown and dried yourself. 

I have not arrived at this point yet .I have not figured out how to grow anything much in Houston soil. (Please notice a new column, Urban Gardener.) I admit I have not tried very hard yet. But do not condemn yourself for what you have not done. Rather, keep building on what you have accomplished. Be patient and do your best. God will set your priorities for you if you allow Him to inspire you.

You may be in need of a food supplement. I have tried many. I believe you can get most of your nutrients from your diet. I have tried juicing, but I only juice what tastes good to me, not necessarily the foods I need. And it is very messy and time consuming. If you eat a relatively good diet, you may only require an enzyme supplement. 

Choose live foods first. Next choose dried, untreated foods, then frozen. Avoid canned foods, except beans and grains which you have to cook for hours anyway. Always endeavor to get live foods in each meal. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures above 129 degree F., so even steaming will destroy enzymes.

I have lived a raw food lifestyle for short periods of time and have felt the vitality of good health before. But it takes a lot of self discipline to eat 80% raw foods, especially if the rest of your family does not see the importance of it. So now I use organic live food supplements from V E Irons to support my health.

Dr. Santillo is the author of Natural Healing with Herbs. He also supervises the course for the Master of Herbs degree which I am pursuing. So I was very excited to try his enzyme supplement which contains live enzymes and antioxidants. And I am even more excited now that I have been taking it for a while. All my chronic problems are being corrected. For the benefits of juicing 8 glasses a day, but in capsule form; contact me.

Celebrate the Lord EveryDay

Prayer is so simple. Speak to the Lord honestly with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. The analogy of a father is used in the Bible more than any other when explaining our relationship with God. Talk to Him freely as you would your earthly father. There are some who had terrible fathers, or no father at all. It may by more difficult for these believers to trust Him. But the first step to a strong relationship is communication.

The Bible is God’s Word. Study it relentlessly; for it is God’s will for all. The holy spirit that you received in the new birth will personalize God’s Word for you. But you must actively seek the Lord. 


Ask Him questions, talk about the events of the day, treat Him as your best friend. There is nothing wrong with complaining to Him or yelling at Him. Our emotions won’t hurt our relationship with Him. But our “holy” dishonesty will. He knows the truth and wants to impart that to us. But we must shed our religious masks and be freely honest with Him. You will grow in faith rapidly if you begin to pray like He is real. He is with you all day. Don’t wait for a devotional to talk to Him. Call upon the Lord, now!


10 Finally my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.


11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.


12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.


13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 


14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;


15 and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;


16 above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be to quench all fiery darts of the wicked.


17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit.

Near My Father's Throne, by Rich Duffy

I am a little child, a star,

I play before my Father’s throne.

I dance hand in hand every day

With my brothers and sisters and Jesus.

I play before my Father’s throne,

I am never alone.


Many are lost in the dark woods tonight,

Ravenous wolves all around.

Let’s go together with the lantern of Christ,

Let us go bring them all home,

Set them a bed near our Father’s throne,

Show them they have a home.


Too long we linger, each by himself.

Too long our coals grow cold.

Bring them together today, and then

Let’s build a fire that warms the heart.

Let’s dance all day near our Father’s throne

And fall asleep in his arms.
