Now, most people may claim that the Old ‘Mosaic’ Laws were done away with on the Cross when Jesus died.

Some others say that we now live by grace and not by law; as a result, people can choose to eat whatever they want.

However, is this really the case?

Let’s go over this in more detail, shall we-


Now, to serve as a
quick reference tool, here is a table on some of biblical verses/statements as
they relate to Clean and Unclean Meats.

Excuses Given By
Most Christians For Eating Unclean Things
The Biblical
Truth About Such Excuses





Jesus did away with the old testament when he came and died on the cross
That is erroneous. The same Jesus said in Matthew 5:
17 ‘Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or
the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.
18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear,
not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means
disappear from the Law
until everything is accomplished.
19 Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of
these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the
kingdom of heaven
, but whoever practises and teaches these commands will
be called great in the kingdom of heaven
It should be clear as day that He has not changed anything
except what needs to be done when the laws are disobeyed or broken. (Friends,
this is not a license to keep breaking the laws!)

Hey, I’m not a pastor or ordained minister, but you and I sure can read. So, when it comes to eating unclean meats and things not fit
for human consumption, if science and medical research say they are wrong,
why risk it? Especially when there are better alternatives.
A read through of Leviticus chapters 18-20deals with
sexual activity. Much (if not all) of what is listed there are practices that
most Christians will readily frown upon and accept as the Law of God.
However, it is noteworthy that these Laws against
Sexual Immorality such as Prostitution, Bestiality  &
Incest in Leviticus are in the same location of the Bible that prohibits the
consumption of pork and other unclean animals. Now, it’s safe to say all
well-meaning Christians know better than to say that such laws about sex have
been ‘nailed to the cross’ or no longer apply to us as we ‘live under grace.’
Well, then the argument or belief that the laws about unclean meats being
abolished should be seen as invalid as well, since they are in the same book
of the Bible. Let’s not deceive ourselves on this!
Why take out some laws and accept them as applicable to modern-day
Christians, then render the rest as no longer relevant, especially when the
consequences on disobeying them affects our health and the health of our
offspring.

Jesus said: “it’s not what goes into a person that makes them impure but what comes out…”















Jesus said: “it’s not what goes into a person that
makes them impure but what comes out…”
My dear friend, please finish reading the whole chapter-
The parallel passage to Mark 7 is Matthew
15
.
The scribes taught that eating any food without a special ceremonial
washing defiled the eater.
However, Jesus said the ceremonial washings were meaningless. In verse 19,
He listed certain evils–murders, adulteries, thefts, etc. Then He concluded,
“These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashed
hands
defiles not a man.”
Verse 20.
No where here does he say we can eat unclean meats…of course you
can read this yourself and see.)

It should be noted that the Pharisees watched every word and movement
Jesus made. When one reads the bible, it is apparent that they falsely
accused him of breaking the Sabbath, and claimed that he blasphemed when he
said JEHOVAH God was his Father, John 5:18.
However, not ONCE did any Jew accuse the Messiah of eating, or supporting
the eating of, unclean meats.

Well, at the end of Mark 7:19 most Bible translations say, “Thus
He declared all foods clean.”
So it’s pretty clear that Jesus changed the old food regulations in Leviticus 11, and its ok to eat pork,
shellfish, or whatever we want, right?

Well, at the end of Mark 7:19 most Bible translations say, “Thus
He declared all foods clean.”
So it’s pretty clear that Jesus
changed the old food regulations in Leviticus 11, and its ok to eat pork,
shellfish, or whatever we want, right?
From a first glance, it will appear that indeed, Jesus declared all foods
clean however that is not the case.

The most important clue for understanding any passage in the Bible is to
check the context. In this case, it’s given in Mark 7:1-5 where Jesus is
asked, “Why do Your disciples not walk according to the Tradition of
the Elders, but eat their bread with unwashed hands?” (v.5).

Now, please make a note of three things-
1. The question isn’t about the LAW, but about a
TRADITION.
2. Second, it’s NOT a question about what may be eaten.
It’s about whether one may eat at all without a ritual hand washing.
3. Third, you do notice they (the Pharisees and Jesus)
were talking about BREAD (unleavened, biblical bread that we all agree would have
had no yeast, chemicals etc) and NOT meat! In case you missed it: …but eat
their BREAD with unwashed hands?” (v.5).
So, it should be clear to all that the subject of Mark
7:1-19 wasn’t clean OR unclean meats. Therefore it cannot be about abolishing
the Laws in Leviticus 11 either.
Also, keep in mind that Jesus himself DID NOT make such a
contradictory statement, (thus he declared all meats clean)
The Greek manuscripts of the book of Mark do not actually
contain the words, “Thus He declared all foods clean.” Check your
trusty old King James Version of Mark 7:19.
It reads quite differently.
a. Mark 7:19
(NIV)
For it doesn’t go into his heart but into his stomach, and then out
of his body.” (In saying this, Jesus declared all foods
“clean.”)
b. Mark 7:19
(KJV)
Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and
goeth out into the draught, purging all meats?
The King James or New King James Versions of the Bible do
not include the phrase “By saying this, Jesus meant that all foods were
fit to eat…” in Mark
7:19.
So, at least, in regards to what this chapter is about-Health Laws in the
Bible, these versions may be the safest.
***In addition, the parallel to that chapter in Matthew
15: verse 20 makes NO mention of Jesus declaring ALL foods clean in any of
the verses I have looked up on the internet.
Naturally, people may still ask, “Ok, but why do
so many translations seem to say that He declared all foods clean?”
Well, for one the ORIGINAL English Version does NOT say
that.
In addition, this discussion took place in a social and
historical context different than our own. Language and practice were based
on the Word of God exclusively.
For instance, their holidays were those days set apart in
the Bible for special observance, not modern man-made ones.
Their property rights were those of the Bible, not modern
man-made ones.
So, only those things that were not “defiled”,
“unclean” were considered food, everything else was not.
Therefore, reading Mark 7:19 as they would have, it means,
“Thus He declared all things-given-by- God-as food to
be clean, regardless of ritual hand washing.”
It should be noted that the Pharisees watched every word
and movement Jesus made.
When one reads the bible, it is apparent that they falsely
accused him of breaking the Sabbath, and claimed that he blasphemed when he
said JEHOVAH God was his Father as is depicted in John 5:18.
However, not ONCE did any Jew accuse the Messiah of
eating, or supporting the eating of, unclean meats!
In addition, I fail to see why Jesus would want to harm
His Bride-the Church- physically (by telling us to eat the wrong things
that would make us sick)
or spiritually (by telling us to disobey the
laws of the Father.)
It’s safe to say we should be on the same page now.
Well, 1 Timothy 4:4 says, “Every creature of
God is good, and nothing to be refused.”






















Well, 1 Timothy 4:4 says, “Every creature of
God is good, and nothing to be refused.”

























Well, 1 Timothy 4:4 says, “Every creature of
God is good, and nothing to be refused.”
At this point in time, common sense will dictate that this verse cannot
and will not authorize eating skunks, leeches, maggots, tapeworms and every
other imaginable animal, insect or parasite. If this were the literal meaning
of the verse, it would mean that people are also good to eat.

Every creature of God is good—“very good”—according to
Genesis 1:31. That includes every kind of vermin, parasite and
poisonous creature that exists. However the Creator Himself calls some of His
creatures abominable and detestable, when USED AS FOOD FOR
HUMANS. To understand this verse, we must read the previous verses more
carefully. Context is the key to correct understanding.
This Scripture passage (verse 3) refers to meats “which God hath
created to be received with thanksgiving” by His people.
These meats, as we have already discovered, are the clean meats listed in
Leviticus chapter 11 and Deuteronomy chapter 14. Verse 4 makes it clear that
all creatures of God are good and not to be refused, provided they are among
those created to “be received with thanksgiving” (the clean
animals).
The key verse to keep in mind here is Verse 5, which tells us why
these animals (or foods) are acceptable: they are “sanctified” by God’s
Word, which says they are clean.
Paul’s instructions to Timothy actually affirmed that food must have PRIOR
APPROVAL in the word of God (the Old Testament) in order to be eaten.
As a result, suffice it to say that in this passage, Paul is actually
reinstating the pertinence and use of the Old Testament dietary laws.
It’s very telling that in 2 Corinthians 6:17 it says: Therefore, ‘Come out
from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and
I will receive you.
Can this verse be any clearer?
But didn’t Jesus cleanse all animals in Peter’s vision, as recorded in Acts 10? (Acts10:13)












But didn’t Jesus cleanse all animals in Peter’s vision, as recorded in Acts 10? (Acts10:13)













But didn’t Jesus cleanse all animals in Peter’s vision, as recorded in Acts 10? (Acts10:13)




























But didn’t Jesus cleanse all animals in Peter’s vision, as recorded in Acts 10? (Acts10:13)
No! In fact, the subject of this vision is not animals,
but people. God gave Peter this vision to show him that the Gentiles were not
unclean, as the Jews believed.
Acts 10: 28-Peter said to them: ‘You are well aware that
it is against our law for a Jew to associate with or visit a Gentile. But
God has shown me that I should not call anyone impure or unclean.
Let’s face it, if God “purified unclean foods,”
the physical world should now exist with an absence of the risk in consuming
them. That is there will be NO diseases or illnesses currently attached to
eating meat the wrong way. (Unclean animals, fat consumption etc)
Dear Friends, Eerdmans’ Handbook of the Bible comments: “These lists
[of clean and unclean creatures] have a significance often ignored. Far from
being based on fad or fancy, these lists emphasize a fact not discovered
until late in the last century… that animals carry diseases dangerous to man”
(p. 176).
In fact, the same animals labeled unclean in Scripture still carry
parasitic diseases that are still dangerous to human beings today!
As is elaborated upon, most unclean animals are carnivores or scavengers
that can transmit dangerous diseases to human beings. Clean fish have fins
and scales. Unclean aquatic organisms like clams and oysters are filter
feeders that purify water, and as a result, concentrate poisonous chemicals
and pathologic bacteria and viruses in their tissues. Crabs and lobsters are
scavengers that eat dead things on the bottom of bodies of water,
furthermore, most unclean birds are carnivores or scavengers.
Therefore, it is worth mentioning that God in His wisdom
inspired laws to protect humans from contracting dangerous diseases, and to
also protect his assigned clean-up crew by making them “off limits” as food
for mankind.
Now, please take a look at Leviticus 3: 17
again “You must never eat any fat or blood. This is a permanent law
for you, and it must be observed from generation to generation, wherever you
live.”

Do you notice the keywords: “PERMANENT” “GENERATION TO GENERATION”…?
Isn’t it clear that God has made this law permanent? So, if there is
scientific proof that fat and blood cannot be removed from the flesh of
unclean animals, how then is it possible that the “law has changed or has
been nailed to the cross after the death and resurrection of the messiah?”
At this time, it is worth mentioning that the flesh of animals listed as
“unclean” for human consumption in the Bible pose unique risks to
humans who eat them.

What about the Verse That Says “You are not under law but under grace” in Romans 6:14?
Well, my dear friend. One of God’s laws is to respect our
parents. Would you dare slap your momma?
We know better than to disobey God’s laws.
That being said, guess what:
First, take a
notice of verse 15 right after the famous
“You are not under law, but
under grace”
statement in
verse 14.
It says: “What
then? Shall we sin because we are not under the law but under grace? By no
means!”
At this stage, what exactly does the Bible define sin as?
The answer is in 1 John 3: 4 which says:“Everyone who keeps living in sin
also practices disobedience. IN FACT, SIN IS DISOBEDIENCE.”
Again, my friends, the whole verse has to be kept intact.
“For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the
law, but under grace. “.
Paul was not referring to the “Law of God” when making the
statement “You are not under the law but under grace”, but rather he was
referring to the “Law of sin” (sin being biblically defined as disobedience
to God’s Laws.
Suffice it to say that in regards to health, which is what
this book is about, God’s laws really do save us from diseases and
sickness when we obey them.
What about Genesis 9:3 which says: “Everything that lives and moves
about will be food for you. Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give
you everything.”

about will be food for you. Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give
you everything.”

What about Genesis 9:3 which says: “Everything that lives and moves

you everything.”
Very interesting, I see the OLD TESTAMENT IS BEING QUOTED HERE.


I thought the general consensus was Christians are not bound by Old
Testament Rules? Also, you do know this was centuries BEFORE the so-called
“Mosaic” Laws, which were words uttered DIRECTLY by God!
Anyway, to answer that question about this Genesis 9:3 verse, all you need
to do is go to the VERY next verse and see the criterion for discernment when
analyzing verse 3.
Verse 4 says: “But you must not eat meat that has its lifeblood still
in it!”

I have heard a few people cite verse 3 and erroneously
assume that God made all things that LIVE and MOVE good for meat.
Well, lions, maggots, you and I LIVE AND MOVE….
Are we in fact GOOD FOR FOOD?
Of course not!
So according to verse 4, it becomes apparent that in
regards to meat consumption, discretion is to be exercised and this is
presented as follows:
Any flesh of animals which contains or retains its lifeblood must not be
eaten AND the ones that DON’T retain their lifeblood need to have this
component extracted.
This forms part of the distinction between the Unclean and Clean animals.
This perhaps could be scientifically explained in the fact that when
considering most unclean animals, their flesh contains much intra-cellular
fat or particles of fat inside the cells themselves, (for example the pig)
while in other animals, the fat is found almost exclusively outside these
cells in the connective tissues, in the form of fat cells. That’s why in
beef, you can easily see a layer of fat, then the flesh. The division of the
fat from the flesh perhaps makes it easy for a disintegration to occur
between flesh from its inherent fat and blood.
This fact is discussed in Leviticus 3: 17-“You must never eat any
fat or blood. This is a permanent law for you, and it must be observed
from generation to generation, wherever you live.”

Therefore, just as we would not eat ALL green plants as some serve
other purposes besides being food, a discerning factor is given here for
animals as well.
Now, I ask, can humans eat all plants perhaps including a plant growing on
your porch or on the block of your home?
Again, the answer will be NO.
Consequently, we can no more eat all types of meat than we can
eat all plants, including poisonous ones.
Here’s a reminder, we just finish going over an OLD TESTAMENT verse…again,
why is there a possibly a double standard when trying to justify our actions?
I thought Christians are not bound by OLD TESTAMENT laws which say
we MUST eat specific animals only, so why is an Old Testament verse being
quoted here…? Just a thought…
Wait a minute, how can a Loving God be upset with me or anyone else for simply eating things like pork or shrimp? Give me a break!
My dear friend, the symptoms of poor health that you may
experience at one time or another are the results of disobeying God’s laws as
they pertain to health.
God’s health laws are not illogical. They are natural, established laws of
the universe, like the law of gravity. What goes up, must come down, what
goes around comes around, you reap what you sow. Ignoring these laws
always brings certain disastrous results. Trouble comes when we ignore the
laws of health.
However, God, in mercy, tells us what these laws are so we
may avoid the tragedies that result from breaking them.
Now, in regards to God being angry or upset with us eating
unclean things, let the Maker speak Himself:
Please read: Isaiah 65:2-4:
2 All day long I have held out my
hands to an obstinate people, who walk in ways not good, pursuing their own
imaginations-
3 a people who continually provoke me to my very
face, offering sacrifices in gardens and burning incense on altars of brick;
4 who sit among the graves and spend their nights keeping secret vigil;
WHO
EAT THE FLESH OF PIGS, and whose pots HOLD BROTH OF IMPURE MEAT;
&
Isaiah 66:
16 For with fire and with his sword the Lord will execute
judgment on all people, and many will be those slain by the Lord.
17 ‘Those who consecrate and purify themselves to go into
the gardens, following one who is among those who eat the flesh of pigs,
rats and other unclean things
they will meet their end together
with the one they follow,’ declares the Lord.
Hmm, I was never aware of this, why aren’t these truths preached in Church?
































Hmm, I was never aware of this, why aren’t these truths
preached in Church?
I have asked myself the same question.
Guess what, God has an opinion about this as He says in Ezekiel
22:26
26 …priests do violence to my law and profane my holy
things; they do not distinguish between the holy and the common; they
teach that there is no difference between the unclean and the clean;
and
they shut their eyes to the keeping of my Sabbaths,
so that I am profaned
among them.
&
Hosea 4:6: “My people are being destroyed
for lack of Knowledge…”
=================
Well, I didn’t make this statements, GOD himself did!
So, I do not want this to be seen as an attack against
religious teachers as I truly believe that most are well meaning and
sincerely may not be aware of such health laws in the Bible or are
misinformed in regards to them. (I’m not even going to get into
the whole Sabbath issue here; I have saved that for elsewhere in this book!)
Now, I doubt that any good intentioned pastor or church
leader, as it applies, would intentionally mislead or withhold information
from their congregation if it will benefit the church and they themselves,
including their own loved ones. So, suffice it to say that it’s time we all
simply do what God says since it is so closely tied to our health.
It’s been said that close to 7 out of 10 prayer requests in an average
church are about sickness! Furthermore, let’s be honest, why are Christians
just as sick as non-Christians?
Well, remember God Himself says: “Even though I gave
them ALL my laws, they act as if those laws don’t apply to them.”
Hosea
8:12

So, it should come as no surprise that God himself shows a
link between our poor health as Christians and a disregard for his laws in
this verse: “But their children, too,
rebelled against me. They refused to keep my decrees and follow my
regulations, even though obedience would have given them life.
.”
Ezekiel 20:21
That being said, it is time for a wake-up call in the
Christian community when it comes to obeying all of God’s laws.
How do we know which Scriptures are applicable to our
lives today and which are discounted as “culturally irrelevant”
(like greeting with a holy kiss or women covering their heads, etc.)?
To the degree that a stipulation is rooted in creation, to
that degree it has abiding value. (Marriage, sexual purity and eating the
proper foods would be huge in that regard.)
To the degree that it is commanded across the whole
terrain of Scripture—Old, New, Epistles, Gospels—Then it has high level
abiding validity. (Both the Old and New Testaments enforce sexual purity and
abstinence from Unclean Meats.)
And to the degree that it is related to the gospel and
close to the gospel it has ongoing validity and staying authority.
Basically, those three qualifications generally will
answer almost all of our questions.
A fourth one would be: If the New Testament invalidates
anything in the Old Testament that was commanded (like sacrifices or the
priesthood or circumcision—things like that), that’s another criterion so
that these are not required anymore.
In addition a fifth will be if God says something is a permanent law and if
He expressively says disobedience of such a law angers Him and will provoke
Him to punishing those who disobey. (For examples see Leviticus 3:17 which says:This is a PERMANENT LAW for the generations to
come, wherever you live: YOU MUST NOT EAT ANY FAT OR ANY BLOOD!” and the
previously cited
Isaiah 66:16-17
)

Well, as has been discussed in the table above, it should become obvious that any reasoning stating that the any of the old “Jewish” or “Mosaic” laws (namely the dietetic laws that pertain to a healthy diet) have been done away with is actually wrong and very well could be hazardous to our own well being.

Furthermore as has been discussed elsewhere in this blog, there are scientific reasons why adhering to these dietetic laws could actually be very beneficial to one’s own health and well being.

Now, I am aware some Christians may still be in disagreement with this principle of clean and unclean foods and they may cite ‘lesser’ commandments in the Bible that people tend to disobey as justification for the fact that it may be okay to fore go these laws.
Such laws can be found in Leviticus 19 and are laws against such things as tattoos, being clean shaven, wearing clothes made of 2 fabrics and a few others.
Well, there are benefits of actually obeying these laws as they pertain to health, so in fact they are laws that should still be obeyed as much as possible.
So, if these “lesser” laws are beneficial for us, how much more value would it be for us as Christians or people seeking to improve themselves to obey the “stricter laws” when they obviously carry more significance and value to our health at least to some degree.
Now, please remember the following:


*God said you MAY eat the flesh (“Of these are the animals you may eat…” Deut . 14: 4 ) not that you MUST eat.
*Be sure of the source of the clean animals like turkey, chicken, beef, so they are as close to clean as possible biblically.

*You could seek out the advice or directions from an orthodox Jewish friend or associate for help if needed.
*Re read Deut. 14 and Leviticus 11 yourself and let the Spirit and common sense guide you.
*Please eat a lot of fruits and vegetables to offset the inevitable harm of flesh consumption, especially in these modern times*if you must eat meat*the biblically clean ones that is.
*If God forbade fat and blood (and a lot of things we consume) I know it goes without saying frying is out of the question as well as the use of harmful condiments.
Dear Brethren, when it comes to second guessing God’s advice on anything (in this case as it relates to health) I would like to bring the following verses to your attention:

1. Hosea 4:6: “My people are being destroyed for lack of Knowledge…”

2. Proverbs 19: 3: “People ruin their lives by their own foolishness and then are angry at the LORD.”

3. Ecclesiastes 7: 9: God created people to be perfect, but they have each turned to follow their own downward path.”

So, suffice it to say that “Trusting in God’s Laws with all your heart” will be the best way to go for not only your health goals but with any aspect of your life.

Remember the Bible does say:

“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11

“…For I am the LORD who heals you!” Exodus 15:26

Well, I believe by now you should be enlightened on why it will be best to adhere to the previously mentioned options on eating the healthy way in the beginning of this post!

It is also my hope that you will make that change and learn how to use these guidelines in the Bible to build disease resistant bodies and a healthier you and the rest of your family and friends starting now and I am proud to say that my book FITNESS: INSIDE AND OUT could serve as a road-map to guide you to success in improving your health.

Poor Health Could Be Linked to Second Guessing God’s Laws!!

We can all agree on one thing and it is that no one wants to be sick.

Well, the Creator of this entire universe never intended that anyone be sick either.

Now, we have all been in a position where we were placed in charge of other people for whatever reasons either as a parent, guardian, teacher, instructor, older sibling and so on. Therefore, we can all relate to how we want those placed in our care to simply do or not do what we tell them based on our superior knowledge and experience. We simply want those we are in charge of to trust our judgment.

Dear Friends, it is safe to say it’s a similar way with God, especially in regards to our health and overall well-being.

At this time, there are no recorded reasons for the various guidelines God has given us on what to do to be healthy in the different times they were issued in the Bible. Then again, there’s no recorded account of those who He spoke to concerning these issues asking for the reasons on why the guidelines were being given in the first place.

However, the guidelines do exist and I believe that God would expect us to trust His wisdom since He made all things.

But if need be, with scientific studies and research, the reasons why He gave the instructions on health are now available since we live in the age where as Daniel 12:42 says in the Bible: “…Knowledge shall increase.” Therefore, with all the technological and scientific advances of our time, a better understanding of the laws in the Bible for our well-being is now more accessible and within reach.

It is noteworthy that many discoveries of modern medical science were already given thousands of years ago first to Adam and Eve, (when the world was perfect) then Noah, (before and after the Genesis Flood) and finally, to the ancient Israelites (with more detail and some modifications to accommodate mankind’s imperfections, as will soon be explained in this book). Furthermore, it may seem strange to think that the Bible, of all books, has laws that have to do with health. However, several guidelines and principles for our well-being are in the Bible and very tellingly, they are ahead of their time!

Nonetheless, it should be noted that we still live in an age of increasing concern about heart disease, cancer, and a lot of modern diseases which afflict our generation.

Why is that?

Perhaps, this may be because man has not learned how to avoid sicknesses and what to do to stay well in all these thousands of years he has been on Planet Earth. Furthermore, even when man should know better, he often disregards his knowledge and does things he should not do, perhaps because the consequences need to proven to him. In addition, it seems that many people just may not know better due to misinformation and propaganda.

However, we have advanced as humans from a technological and scientific standpoint, so with the scientific and medical research done on God’s word, it is now easier to explain why God forbids and allows certain things for our own good, especially in regards to health.

With that said, there is one thing that is certain and may be the very foundation for the health of all living beings and that is: All living creatures on this planet Earth are designed to nourish themselves with what they are designated to eat and mankind is no exception!

Folks, when God created this world and everything in it, including humans, He set up laws to oversee His creation. Therefore, it is safe to say that sickness comes only as a result of violating these natural physical laws one way or the other.

However, on a very revealing note, this is often times overlooked or unknown by many people. As a result, in these modern times, our instincts have been destroyed and now we follow the guidelines of the various Dietetic Associations the world over, the Medical Fraternity and what everyone else is doing. Therefore, both believers and unbelievers are eating the wrong way instead of God’s way and suffice it to say, humans are now paying a very heavy price for this violation of God’s natural laws by having to live with so much sickness and diseases.

So, keeping that in mind, it is my hope that this article could be an introduction to the guidelines in the Bible for our health or at least a reminder of what they are for our own benefits.

Here’s to Better Health, the way the Father intended for us!

Yours in Christ,

Foras Aje

The Shocking Rise in Autism Cases May Be Linked To What We Feed Our Children! (Part 2)

Now, as a follow up to our previous article on this subject, when it comes to broadening your kid’s diets, simply take the Biblical advice which says: “Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.” (Proverbs 22:6). Therefore, in regards to eating, stock up the house with PLENTY of fruits (kids apparently love bananas). For example, in the summer, make the home and kitchen full of melons, mangoes, grapes and so on.

Engage them in the washing of the fruits and eat your meals with them. Eventually, they will pick up your habits.

Now, if you are concerned about taking milk out of your diet and that of your family, then I suggest you read up on the information given herewith as to why this would in fact be beneficial.

It is noteworthy that many Americans have been raised to believe that this milk is essential to good health, largely due to the efforts of the American Dairy Association, and many parents seem to believe that it is their duty to feed their children as much cow’s milk as possible. However, lots of perfectly healthy people, including children, do very well without it.

Folks, it should be stated that cow’s milk has been called “the world’s most overrated nutrient” and “fit only for baby cows.” That said, be careful about what you consume and remember that removing dairy means ALL milk, butter, cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, etc. It also includes product ingredients such as “casein” and “whey,” or even words containing the word “casein.” Read labels – items like bread and tuna fish often contain milk products. Even soy cheese usually contains caseinate.

Again, if it’s not grown from the soil and doesn’t have some degree of water content like fruits, green leaf and root vegetables mainly, with emphasis on the first two items of course, we pretty much have no business eating it, especially when facing or trying to prevent any health challenges.

Suffice it to say the Good Lord says is best by saying “…Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing.” Ezekiel 47:12

In regards to curtailing autism symptoms naturally with the use of a proper diet, it may seen that many might be willing to try removing dairy products from their child’s diet, but don’t think they could handle removing gluten because they feel they need to eat something grain based.

Well, please re-read this article as to why you may have to remove all grain-based items from your diet. Furthermore, it’s not that hard to substitute sweet fruits, baked or boiled plantains and root vegetables for grain based items.

In regards to grain based items, dear parents, what you need to understand is that for certain autistic children, these foods are toxic to their brains. It is possible that for this group of people with autism, eating these foods is actually damaging the developing brain.

Now, the Autistic Network For Dietary Intervention highly recommends that parents try a gluten-free, casein-free diet for at least 3 months and they say it may take that long to see results, and you should not cheat.

Yes, eating healthy could be challenging, but it can make a tremendous difference.

Now in regards to autism especially, if you go to the following link:

http://www.glutensolutions.com/autism.htm | Google Search Term: “Autism Diet, Resources and Information”, they offer information in regards to receiving phone calls where parents break down in tears as they recount the improvements seen in their child. They claim that it is not at all uncommon to hear reports that an autistic child made eye contact with their parent for the first time, or that he/she was able to attend a “normal” school for the first time.

Nonetheless, I am quick to point out that I am not an affiliate of theirs and this article should not be seen as an endorsement of their website or products. In addition, although they do recommend the gluten free/casein free diet for helping autistic kids, they offer some alternatives , including breads, baking mixes, cookies, crackers, snacks, pastas, and more.

I have to let out a sigh of resignation at this point.

Dear Readers, you can purchase such items if you choose to, but let me suggest to you that you simply eliminate ALL disease forming foods from your kitchen and try to eat unprocessed foods as much as possible. This website says they have had some positive results with their products and that could in fact be true in regards to Autism alone, but what about other diseases?

The ‘products’ I recommend are what the Good Lord and Science says to eat: Mostly Fruits and Vegetables. If you need to, read this article, for the exact reasons why.

Dear Parents, I leave you with these words: With God’s way of healing (including but not limited to eating right, getting adequate sunshine, fresh air, sleep, avoiding harmful products, cleanliness…and prayer for His Mercies to bless our efforts), when one disease is cured IT CURES AND PREVENTS ALL OTHER DISEASES.

Here’s to Great Health and happiness….

miscarriage.jpg

In most cases, when a woman gets married, it could very well be one of the happiest days of her life. Now, when she gets pregnant, she is overjoyed!

She starts preparing herself mentally for motherhood. She starts weaving dreams of how she will bring up the child and all things she would do for her offspring.

Now, we can only imagine a tragedy it will be if a miscarriage happens. A woman is bound to be devastated and shattered beyond words!

Well, as the writer of this post, it is my hope that no one reading this will have to experience this.

However, let’s face it, bad things sometimes happen to all of us and it is a sad part of life. Nevertheless, what truly matters may be how we bounce back from tragedies.

Therefore, if you happen to have had or know someone who may have had a miscarriage, my sympathy goes out to you in this time of grief and May God give you the strength to pull through this unfortunate situation and aid you in making another life really soon.

You can take the LORD at His Word when He says: “….I will protect you from illness. There will be no miscarriages or infertility in your land, and I will give you long, full lives.” Exodus 23:25-26.

With that being said, on the other hand if you are reading this because you are planning to have a baby or are already pregnant and want preventive tips, it is my hope that this article can come on in handy as well. (Oh, and the verse above also applies to you as well!)

Now, if for whatever reason, you may not have any religious inclinations in your being, well, this article and its tips can still come in very handy for you as they are backed up by scientific and medical facts that you can always look up yourself.

So here we go.

Dear Friends, thousands of mothers, unconsciously through eating the wrong things, literally lose their babies before they are born. Here then are some of the only and correct ways to fight infantile immortality and miscarriages. These are to eat the right things and to observe basic cleanliness principles.

Certain bacterial infections are well established as possible culprits in regards to miscarriages. The specific food-borne illnesses (a.k.a. food poisoning) that are linked to miscarriage include:

1. Listeriosis

2. Salmonella enterocolitis (also known as Salmonellosis)

3. Toxoplasmosis

4. E. coli enteritis

That said, the best way to protect yourself from these food-borne infections, thus reducing the risk of miscarriage and pregnancy loss, is to avoid foods at risk of contamination during pregnancy.

Therefore, again be careful about eating in restaurants, and be more cautious when preparing food at home. So, do see to it that you carefully wash all produce that is to be consumed by you and your family.

Food-borne bacterial infections are one potentially preventable cause of miscarriage and stillbirths, so it is wise to be vigilant about what you eat during pregnancy in order to reduce your risk of food poisoning!

It should be noted that pregnant women are more susceptible to complicated infections, and in the U.S., Listeria infection during pregnancy occurs most often in the third trimester, so it is more likely to be a cause of a stillbirth than an early miscarriage.

Furthermore, pork has the parasite listeria which can seriously impair the fetus and even cause a miscarriage.

Foods that may harbor Listeria and can cause food poisoning in general include:

-Milk and Dairy Products

-Deli meats

-Refrigerated, smoked seafood eaten on its own (not as an ingredient in a well-cooked meal)

-Refrigerated pate or meat spreads

-Undercooked poultry products: Chicken, Turkey, Eggs

-Undercooked, unsanitary food (be careful in restaurants)

-Contaminated water in certain countries

-Unwashed fruits and vegetables

Dear Friends, it should become crystal clear that avoiding all mucus (disease forming foods) and applying simple cleanliness tips to our fresh plant-based produce, will be essential not only for our overall health but to prevent any thing happening to our kids (living and unborn).

Prevent Miscarriage 500x350 How To Prevent Miscarriage

In addition, it may be hard to believe but is indeed correct that the microwave oven you use to make food could be harmful to your unborn child, especially when the device is old or is wrongly used.

Tests have shown that microwaves emit harmful electromagnetic radiation which could harm embryos and could lead to miscarriage.

“Microwaves can be harmful if they are leaking radiation,” says Dr Shivani Sachdev Gaur of SCI (Surrogate Center India) Healthcare in New Delhi, India.

The waves of a microwave oven can travel up to 12 cm, so it is harmful for a pregnant woman to stand near a microwave oven, especially if it is old and damaged, she says.

Now, I admit, some people may scoff at this and disregard it as irrelevant or taking things too seriously. However, that will be an incorrect way to view things.

If people indeed have conceived and had kids while eating whatever they want, do you know how many times they have had to take the kids to the hospitals or sadly, lost their kids as toddlers, pre-teens or teens due to childhood or teenage diseases?

So, it is not wise to compare ourselves to others.

That said, if indeed you have had one or more miscarriages, on a human level, I do sympathize with you. However, moving forward, as we inevitably will have to do, with this information you have now, you can do the following:

  1. Attain one or more replacements for the unborn child you may have lost.
  2. Raise these children to adult-hood without diseases.
  3. Use this information to keep yourself free of diseases to see equally healthy children and grandchildren.

A similar scenario applies to women or couples that just can’t seem to conceive.

When it comes to using a proper diet to attain a successful conception and to avoid miscarriages, it is noteworthy that Professor Ehret says again in his book, The Mucus-Less Diet Healing System, that the so-very common disease of dislocation, or falling of the womb can be healed by adhering to a mucus free diet of predominantly fruits, root and leafy vegetables in addition to short fasts.

He goes on to add that impotence in males and sterility in females can be healed by adhering to the same diet. Ehret goes on to add that he has seen sterility in females healed and every person who earnestly took up his system of healing was healed of ANY kind of disease, especially degenerative ones such as cancer, diabetes, asthma etc for the simple fact that in curing one disease with his recommended diet, (which basically is a reminder of what the Creator has since ordained for mankind to eat), it cures and prevents ALL other diseases.

That comes as no surprise to me simply because such a diet is rooted in the second recorded statements God uttered to man according to the Bible.

This was the first, last and only rule of life (after man had received the power of reproducing his kind and of holding dominion over living things that moved on earth and in water and air that was concerned with food.

With an impressive “Look!” his attention was drawn to this rule and should not be overlooked in creating the basis of the human diet as a result. Keeping that in mind, several articles in this blog cover this fact in more detail. Although a proper diet is perhaps the most important aspect in dealing with one’s overall health, other factors such as the use of hazardous household products, inadequate sunshine and fresh air, stress etc could also affect one’s well-being, including sexual health. However, I have done my best to address such factors as they apply in various articles in this blog.

You have it in your possession and this author hopes you refer to it as many times as you may need it.

Now, it is noteworthy that the Surgeon General’s warning stating that: “Smoking by pregnant women may result in fetal injury, premature birth, and low birth weight,” now appears on cigarette packs for good reason.

Why is this so?

Well, very tellingly, pregnant smokers have a higher chance of miscarriage and stillbirth.

Folks, it is noteworthy that babies of smoking mothers have a higher chance of being born early and too small. Low-birth-weight babies (less than 5 ½ pounds) can suffer serious health problems throughout their lives. So, suffice it to say that to make the right choice for your baby-Don’t smoke.

In fact, let’s rephrase that: DON’T SMOKE, DRINK ALCOHOL or USE RECREATIONAL DRUGS!!

I hope this doesn’t sound too harsh or strict as it seems many pregnant women wonder if 1 or 2 drinks will harm their baby.

Well, even though alcohol affects everyone differently, it should be noted that the alcohol the mother drinks is shared with her baby. The more she drinks, the more the baby receives, which increases the chances of serious problems for the baby and even the mother as well.

Now even though medical experts have not been able to determine a safe amount of alcohol to drink during pregnancy (dare I say at any given time), in order for you to protect your baby from alcohol-related danger, you should not drink any alcohol. Ladies, there must be a reason why the Bible says that: ““Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.” Proverbs 20:1.

Dear friends, it is noteworthy that drinking during the first 3 months of pregnancy is particularly dangerous. This is the most important time for the baby’s organs (including the brain, heart, and lungs) to grow. For this reason, you should stop alcohol use if you are planning to become pregnant. Several weeks may pass before you know you are pregnant.

Don’t take the chance of drinking during a very important time in your baby’s development. This also applies to the use of recreational drugs. It just isn’t worth the risk to have fun and wild out especially when you are pregnant. Sometimes (ALL the time), it just makes sense to do the wise, smart and responsible thing!

(For more information on how avoiding Drugs and Alcohol is beneficial to the human body from a Biblical and Scientific standpoint, you can take a look at the following articles:

The Bible and Alcohol

What Does the Bible Say About Recreational Drugs?

Other Common Sense Tips to Keep in Mind to Avoid Miscarriages Are To:

1. Avoid X-rays and too many ultrasounds. Now, most ultrasounds are usually done during the first 3 months of a pregnancy to make ensure that the baby is growing properly and to confirm a heartbeat. However, it is recommended that you do your research about ultrasounds and understand that you can decide not to have one until the second trimester if you are worried about possible harmful effects.

2.  (By all means) Avoid environmental hazards that contain harmful chemicals or pollution. Here is a helpful article on this subject of Environmental Hazards and Common Pollutants (some of which most of us use daily.

3. Avoid contact sports where you could potentially be hit in the stomach or fall down.  Of course this should be pretty self explanatory.

4. Avoid the common Disease Forming Foods (junk, highly processed and acid forming foods. Now will be the time to adhere to Mostly OR Exclusively Raw or properly cooked Fruits and Vegetables, Some Permissible Whole Grains and Biblically Clean (Safe) Meats (that is, if you must eat animal flesh by the way.)

5. Pray-Remember what it says in Psalm 127:1-“Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain.” Well, suffice it to say this applies to everything we do in our lives, including-as it relates to this article-going through a pregnancy term.

So, remember to put the LORD first and commit your pregnancy into His Hands. Hey, we are all His Children and He only wants the best for all of us!
Now, with all of this being stated:

1.      If you are still or planning to get pregnant, here’s wishing you a safe delivery.

However…

2.      If you happen to have had a miscarriage, my dear Friend-May God help you find courage: May God help you find happiness. Be positive, take care of your health and look forward to making a wonderful life again and it is my hope that this article will be of some use for you.

So, to conclude, remember, God truly cares for us, we just have to listen to His loving advice that He gives us for own good.

Again, “You must serve (and obey) only the LORD your God. If you do, I will bless you with food and water, and I will protect you from illness. There will be no miscarriages or infertility in your land, and I will give you long, full lives.” Exodus 23:25-26.

Suffice it to say, you can take the Good Lord at this Word!
