Heart disease, Alzheimer’s, eggs, depression

Heart disease, high blood pressure, retained water, depression and Alzheimer’s, all these ailments might be avoided by eating eggs.


 My wife Shary was sick all the time as she was growing up. Doctors gave her lots of drugs and told her that she would never be able to carry a baby full term. In college Shary began to be dissatisfied with her poor health. At a bookstore, she stumbled onto the classic, “Eat Right, Live Longer” by LeLord Kordell.4 This book started Shary thinking that her food choices, like whether to eat eggs or junk food, were more important than she had previously thought. About a year later, Shary became pregnant with our first child. When Shary went to the clinic to get her pregnancy test results, the nurse said in one sentence, “The test is positive, would you like an abortion referral?” Shary was shocked at the question, ultimately, instead of aborting, she determined to learn everything she could about having healthy babies.  This article is about eggs, whether they are good for you or not. The Bible says that eggs are a great gift and real science is catching up to that fact, after getting it wrong for a half century.

After studying nutrition in college, reading hundreds of books and articles on nutrition and listening to hours and hours of nutritional lectures, Shary and I have improved our health dramatically. But there was one giant problem, although we were seeing great improvements in our health, not everything we read worked and not all the “experts” agreed. So who can you trust? Some say milk is bad, others say it’s great. Some say red meat is the worst thing you can eat, others say it is the best. Many say that eggs will spike your cholesterol and ultimately kill you and others say eggs are the perfect protein. So who do you believe, who has a corner on the truth.?

We have come to the conclusion that there is only one infallible source of information about what is good for us and what is not, it is the Bible; God’s Word.

                                                      Proverbs 3:5-8                                                          Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;             in all your ways acknowledge him. And he will make your paths straight.                              Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil.                         This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.

Secular wisdom changes almost as often as the seasons change. Self-help and textbooks change as fast as they can be printed. But…

               The Bible never changes, because                 it’s advice is from God, the creator.

He says that if we trust him and his word, and don’t lean on man’s understanding of the world, it will bring health to our bodies. This is exactly what we have found to be true. Shary has eaten a lot of eggs over the years and never had a miscarriage. She produced thirteen healthy babies and she is still healthy herself. So what does the Bible say about egg consumption?


                                                Luke 11:11 Jesus said…                                           “Which of you fathers, if your son asks for… an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”

Jesus could have used anything as an example of a good gift. But he was trying to get across the idea that our Heavenly Father will give us the incredibly good gift of the Holy Spirit. So he used an egg as his earthly example of a very good gift.

Eggs are a gift from God. Eggs are one of the best foods you can eat. Eggs are considered a perfect protein. Eggs contain all the essential amino acids in the perfect proportions so that your body can use them completely.5 If one of the amino acids is only at, say, half the necessary ratio, your body will only be able to digest and use half of the protein that you have consumed. Interestingly enough, peanut butter only has about half of the necessary amino acids needed to form a complete protein, but milk has all the amino acids that peanut butter lacks. This is why many people crave a glass of milk after eating peanut butter. 12 Your God given taste buds are detecting an imbalance in the good food you have eaten and are sending a message to your brain to balance your diet. Psalm 139:14 says, “I will praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

Shary and I have been teaching childbirth classes since 1976. Shary has also been a midwife to many, many women. Among the thousands of students we have taught; one of the most common problems in pregnancy is toxemia, which is also called preeclampsia (a self-poisoning of the mother and baby). The initial symptoms of toxemia, are high blood pressure, swelling and protein in the urine. Toxemia is very serious because the baby and mother are not able to eliminate toxins (poison) that the body normally flushes out. Standard practice to is to medicate the mother, put her on bed rest and take the baby by cesarean section.2

Toxemia is a very progressive and potentially fatal condition and remains a leading cause of miscarriage, premature birth, and infant mortality in the United States and around the world. An estimated 50,000 women die every year from toximia.4

When doctors test women for toxemia, they will take urine samples and tell the woman she has too much protein in her urine. Then she will be told to cut down on her protein intake. Actually, what they are detecting are amino acids that are being discarded by the body. Because most woman’s diets are unbalanced and lack sufficient protein, their bodies will kick out the excess amino acids. The result is that their body’s mechanism for ridding itself of toxins is starved. That system needs a lot of protein and it isn’t getting it. Shary has been able to help virtually every mother who has come to her, by getting them to up their protein intake. How does she do it? By getting these women to eating at least two eggs every day and adding other lean proteins.  Two eggs are the best source, because eggs are a perfectly balanced protein.

Dr. Tom Brewer, the head obstetrician in a large hospital, saw over 500 babies born each year. He recorded that one third of the pregnant mothers, approximately 166 in all, had developed toxemia. In an effort to reduce the toxemia rate, he simply asked the women to eat two eggs and drink a quart of milk every day. After one year under the new plan, the hospital had only recorded two cases of toxemia. One of the women had triplets, and he thought maybe she needed to eat four eggs a day. The other patient was mentally ill and they were never sure if she had followed the instructions. By simply adding two eggs and a quart of milk to these 500 women’s diets, toxemia was almost completely eradicated. 1

The March of Dimes has done extensive research to determine the cause of birth defects. As early as 1975 the march of Dimes was encouraging pregnant mothers to eat eggs, vegetables and drink milk.

The symptoms of toxemia; high blood pressure and retained water, do not just affect pregnant women. If you have these symptoms the solution is often the same, increase your protein intake, eat eggs.

But what about the cholesterol in eggs? Each year Americans spend 117 billion dollars on cholesterol testing. Isn’t cholesterol bad for you?  First of all, eggs contain lecithin, which breaks down cholesterol. Also; there is good cholesterol and bad cholesterol and, you guessed it, the cholesterol in eggs is the good kind.

Eggs contain cholesterol, and cholesterol is an essential nutrient. That means that your body must have it. Your body actually makes about 10% of your daily need for cholesterol; but it must get the other 90% from your diet. According to Dr. Joel Wallach, we have created some horrible diseases in our quest to limit cholesterol and egg consumption. For example, Alzheimer’s disease did not exist 40 years ago, not in any medical textbook, not in any medical dictionary. The first mention of it as a disease entity was in 1979. In the seventies we began to restrict choloresteral and immedietly we saw a new disease develop. It is a deficiency disease that effects half of all 70 year old’s. It is now the number four killer of people over 65.


Alzheimer’s is caused by a medical theory that ignores God’s word. Many doctors claim that it is genetic. Now let’s examine that theory for a moment. Since Alzheimer’s has only occurred in the last 20-40 years, how could it possibly be genetic? Even evolutionists don’t believe you can change an entire people group’s genetics in 20-40 years.

The onset of this nutritional disease does coincide with the limiting of foods containing cholesterol. Fact: the brain is 75% cholesterol; by limiting the amount of cholesterol, we are starving our bodies of the materials necessary to build brain matter. According to Dr. Wallach you can eliminate any chance of getting Alzheimer’s by eating at least two eggs a day. Dr. Wallach has done extensive studies with animals and was able to create and eliminate the symptoms of Alzheimer’s by either limiting or increasing cholesterol in their diets. Dr. Wallach has been nominated twice for the Nobel Prize in medicine. The normal safe cholesterol level is 220-270. According to Wallach if anyone tries to get you to lower your cholesterol level below 200, run for the hills. If your cholesterol level is below 200, your risk of intracranial stroke goes up 200%, liver cancer goes up 300% and you double your likelihood of suffering from depression.

Unfortunately, my own, very healthy, parents were advised by their doctor to limit their fat and cholesterol intake, so they stopped eating eggs and butter. Shary and I tried to share with them what we have learned but they insisted that their doctor knew best. They would follow his advice and shortly after eliminating eggs, my dad suffered more and more from depression. My mother went into full blown Alzheimer’s. Currently my mother is in a memory care facility, if we bring her a gift she will thank us every time she sees the gift as if it is the first time, sometimes five or six times an hour. So the only upside to all of this is that we get a lot more credit for a single gift than we used to. The down side is that she may think the gift came from one of my brothers instead of me.

Many people believe that eggs are bad for their hearts. On November 15, 1995, the American Heart Association announced a study of 141 volunteers with a cholesterol level of 227. After six months of eating two eggs per day the American Heart Association came out with this statement…

“We always assumed that eggs were bad for you because they contained cholesterol; but it now appears after this study that two eggs per day won’t hurt.”

I am sixty-four years young, I personally eat at least two eggs per day. I feel great, my blood pressure is great, I can still run and play with my teenage son and teenage grandchildren. Protein and cholesterol are two of the most important nutrients in your body, they make up most of your brain and muscle tissue. Eggs are the best source of protein and cholesterol. Jesus said they are good gifts. Two a day is a great foundation to a long and healthy life. Happy eating.

Serious mood swings? Frequent illnesses? Eating pork could be the reason.

                 Are you sick a lot, or do you have serious mood swings?                 Eating pork could be the reason.

What about pork and good health? To mention that pork might not be good to eat, is fighting words to many people.  So, I am asking you to extend to me a little Christian love and mercy as I attempt to make the case for avoiding pork products. I think you will live longer and have healthier lives if you avoid pork. Yes, I know it tastes great, but, human experience, science and God’s word, may prove it is not worth the risk. So let’s take a look at all three of these.

Human experience                                                                                     Most Christians, and most Americans, believe they can eat whatever they want. Jews believe it is not good to eat pork. In Israel, Jews and non Jews tend to avoid pork. Is there any proof that avoiding pork products, is a healthier practice than eating a lot of pork, like Americans? According to a report by Jerusalem’s Taub Center for Social Policy Studies, Israeli life expectancy at birth is 81 years compared to 78 years for Americans.1 That one fact, that non pork eating Jews, tend to live longer than pork eating Americans, may not be conclusive but if it is connected to some actual science then it may be a factor.

Science                                                                                                       When we share with people that eating pork is unhealthy, we are informed that we obviously aren’t up to date on the latest information about pork consumption. Evidently, everyone knows that with our modern technology in food processing and cooking, all ill effects of eating pork have been eliminated, or are they?


In the January 2013 edition of Consumer Reports a different story was told. Consumer Reports stated:

“Our analysis of pork-chop and ground-pork samples from around the U.S. found that Yersinia enterocolitica, a bacterium that can cause fever, diarrhea, and abdominal pain, was widespread. Some samples harbored other potentially harmful bacteria, including salmonella. And there are more reasons to be concerned about “the other white meat”.

Some of the bacteria we found in 198 samples proved to be resistant to antibiotics commonly used to treat people. The frequent use of low-dose antibiotics in pork farming may be accelerating growth of drug-resistant “superbugs” that threaten human health.

About one-fifth of the 240 pork products we analyzed in a separate test harbored low levels of the drug ractopamine, which the U.S. approved in 1999 to promote growth and leanness in pigs.  It’s commonly used in pigs raised for food in the U.S. but is banned in the European Union, China and Taiwan.

Yersinia enterocolitica was found in 69% of the tested pork samples. It infects about 100,000 Americans a year, especially children. We found salmonella, staphylococcus aureus, or listeria monocytogenes, in 3 to 7 percent of samples.

Thirteen of the fourteen staphylococcus samples we isolated from pork were resistant to one or more antibiotics, so were six of eight salmonella samples, 12 of 19 enterococcus samples, and 121 of 132 yersinia samples. One sample was identified as MRSA, a drug-resistant and sometimes fatal staph.”2

Why are all those disease causing bacteria in pork products? Factory-farmers gobble up 80 percent of the antibiotics sold in the U.S. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has estimated that 67 percent of human diseases are of animal origin, and according to Robert Martin, director of food system policy at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, “there are a number of specific studies that have linked antibiotics in animals to drug-resistant human infections,”3

What about pork products from other countries? Food from other countries can carry even more health risks. Check out these two YouTube videos. One shows parasites in uncooked pork and the other shows cooked pork that was reheated in a microwave. Evidently these parasites are really tough.



      Eating Pork can affect your moods and cause migraines.


The processing aids used in the most popular cuts of pork—ham, sausage, bratwursts, and the like—cause depression. “Sugar, salt, and nitrate preservatives used in these products can trigger low moods, migraines, and even swollen ankles,” writes Drew Ramsey, MD, coauthor of  The Happiness Diet.3

According to Consumer Reports, Johns Hopkins and MD Drew Ramsey, Pork products, not only contain disease strains that are resistant to antibiotics, they also contain hormones, preservatives and sugar, that are making Americans sick and depressed, especially children.

God’s Word, what does it say about eating pork?

Leviticus 11:4-8                                                     Nevertheless these you shall not eat among those that chew the cud or those that have   cloven hooves: the camel, because it chews the cud but does not have cloven hooves, is unclean to you; the rock hyrax, because it chews the cud but does not have cloven hooves, is unclean to you; the rabbit, because it chews the cud but does not have cloven hooves, is unclean to you; and the pig, though it divides the hoof, having cloven hooves, yet does not chew the cud, is unclean to you.Their flesh you shall not eat, and their carcasses you shall not touch. They are unclean to you.

                                            Isaiah 62:2,4b,5b                                                            All day long I have held out my hands to an obstinate people who walk in ways not goodWho eat the flesh of pigs and whose pots hold broth of unclean meat; Such people are smoke in my nostrils”

Leviticus 11:4-8 talks about white meat (pig, rabbit, horse, dog, cat, rat). God said these animals are not to be eaten. Can you eat them? Sure, you can eat anything you want. Paul said in…

                                          1 Corinthians 6:12 6:12                                                    “Everything is permissible but not everything is beneficial…but I will not be mastered by anything.  Food for the stomach and the stomach for food.”

Unclean food won’t spiritually defile you, it will just shorten your life. It’s not a sin to eat pork, it’s just not physically beneficial. Jesus said what comes out of our mouth, spiritually defiles us, not what goes in our mouths.

Many people think, that because old testament rules about food do not apply to us spiritually anymore, that they also don’t apply to us physically. Let’s just think about that for a second. The old testament says that seagulls are not good for you and that cats and dogs are not good food. Do we really believe that since Jesus died on the cross that all of a sudden those animals became healthy to eat? I live on the coast of Oregon and the thought of eating a seagull would make most of my friends sick to their stomachs.

I have been traveling to third world countries, two and three times a year for over twenty years. Many of my missionary friends ignore God’s advice concerning pork and other foods. They eat pork and shellfish and; they almost always get sick and I don’t. God did not make his laws just to see if we would be obedient, he made them to keep us out of harm’s way.

The animals in Leviticus 11:1-3 (red meat animals, those with a split hoof and chew the cud) have a four-stomach digestive system designed to convert vegetation into protein, calcium, etc. These animals are not as likely to carry diseases that affect humans. The animals that God said not to eat have a single stomach digestive system very similar to ours, which also makes them susceptible to almost all the parasites and diseases that we are plagued with.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), between November 2002 and July 2003, an outbreak of SARS in southern China caused 774 deaths reported in 37 countries. The epidemic has a 9.6% fatality rate. The epidemic was found to be related to the eating of cats, a white meat animal like pigs, the bible says not to eat. Obeying God’s advice concerning white meat would have spared these unfortunate people a lot of pain, suffering and lives cut short.

To say that modern science has eliminated the need to avoid pork products is to ignore the facts, and, put yourself and your family at risk. God’s advice is timeless and valuable. Before we had scientists who could look through powerful microscopes and see disease producing bacteria, God knew what food carried sickness and death and warned us not to eat it.

In our blog about red meat, we shared a study done in Colorado concerning people who lived to be over 100 years old.

+In that study they found only one thing that all centenarians had in common. They all ate red meat, the meat God said was good to eat, twice a day, not white meat, that God said not to eat. If you want to live out your full lifespan you will have to eat red meat like the Bible recommends and avoid white meat. Happy eating!!!

Sin, guilt, shame and sicknesses.

Sickness is not always caused by what you eat or don’t eat, how much you exercise or don’t exercise or even how much or little rest you get. There is a spiritual component that most doctors never consider. The Bible teaches that every person has a body, soul and a spirit, and that our soul and spirit can affect our bodies. If we are spiritually sick, filled with sin, guilt and shame, it will shorten our lives, just like bacteria and viruses can shorten our lives.

shame-2 Hells Angels 1965

An older lady who had been attending our church, called me up one day. She was new, and  I did not know much about her, accept that she was a grandmother to some children that also attended our church. She called to asked me if God could forgive her for all the terrible things she had done in her life. Being a typical pastor, I said, “Of course God can forgive you”. Then she told me that she used to be a member of the Hell’s Angels and that she had been the debt collector for the bike gang. She said that she used a gun to collect, and you can guess the rest. That was a complete surprise to me, she looked so sweet and innocent. But, I stuck to my theology and told her again, “God can and will forgive you of any sin, if you will confess it and ask God to forgive you”. Providentially, the next Sunday I was preaching on the story of Jesus, where he tells a paralyzed man that his sins are forgiven. The Pharisees got mad and accused Jesus of blaspheme, because they said, “Only God can forgive sins”. Jesus response was:

But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”—he (Jesus) said to the paralytic— 11 “I say to you, rise, pick up your bed, and go home.” 12 And he rose and immediately picked up his bed and went out before them all, so that they were all amazed and glorified God, saying, “We never saw anything like this!” Mark 2:10-12

Jesus still has the authority to forgive sin and and prove it, by healing our bodies. That beautiful older woman came to church the Sunday following our conversation and told me that she had been having seizures every day for most of her life, but since we prayed for her to be forgiven, she had ceased to have seizures. She had not had one since we prayed. Unconfessed, and unforgiven sin, can cause sickness in our bodies.

Is all sickness a direct result of sin? The answer is a resounding NO!  The disciples asked Jesus “Who sinned this man or his parents, that he was born blind?’ ‘Neither this man nor his parents sinned,’ said Jesus (John 9:2,3) Sin is not always the problem. Someone you love may be sick simply because they are unfortunate enough to live in the goiter belt (an area of the U.S. that has no iodine). That’s not a sin, it’s just an iodine deficiency. Sailors used to get scurvy because there wasn’t enough vitamin C in their diet. It is not sin that they didn’t have fresh fruit on the boat; it was a lack of understanding. People get anemic because they have a diet that lacks digestible iron. That is not a sin, it’s just unfortunate.

Not every sickness is a direct result of someone’s sin! BUT…

The reason Jesus’ disciples asked the question was because the Bible does teach that some disease is a direct result of Sin. In John 5:14 Jesus said…

See, you are well again. Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you”

                                                           (Psalm 38:3-7)                                                           “Because of your wrath there is no health in my body; my bones have no soundness because of my sin. My guilt has overwhelmed me like a burden too heavy to bear. My wounds fester and are loathsome because of my sinful follyI am bowed down and brought very low; all day long I go about mourning. My back is filled with searing pain there is no health in my body.

 So what is the cure?

1 John 1:7-9…

“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”

Let me outline the process found in this Bible verse:

  • It is the blood of Jesus that cleanses us from sin.
  • We must confess our sins. (agree with God that what we did was wrong)
  • Then by faith we receive God’s forgiveness.


In 1974 my uncle Ward Graham showed me this verse in the Bible             (1 John 1:8-9). At this time of my life I had been immersed in the hippie movement but was giving Jesus a chance. Also, up to this point I had not had any success in conquering sin in my life. I remember times when I would determine not to sin anymore, only, in short order,to fail miserably. As Shary and I began to attend church, (about the time the above picture was taken), I decided that my foul language needed to stop. But much to my disappointment I would slip and something embarrassing would come from my lips. Among other things I found myself using the Lord’s name as a swear word in the most awkward situations.

If you are like myself and the Apostle Paul, you probably have thought or said something like this…

I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it…..What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God—through Jesus Christ our Lord!”           Romans 7:18b-20, 24-25

My uncle advised me to apply 1 John 1:7-9. He called it spiritual breathing, so I tried it. Every time I would slip up, I would confess to the Lord, I would tell Jesus that I realized what I had said was displeasing to him and I would ask him to forgive me (that was the exhaling of spiritual breathing). Then by faith, I would thank him that he had forgiven me because Jesus had suffered and spilled his own blood to pay for that sin. I would also, by faith, thank him that he was washing the sin out of me, (That was the inhaling of spiritual breathing), it was actually quite refreshing. If I was alone, I would say it out-loud, if I was with other people, I would silently pray it.

The first benefit, was that I didn’t feel guilty all the time; that guilt had, at times, actually made me sick to my stomach. I now realize that it was also affecting my immune system.  Instead of feeling guilt and shame, I felt free, light and forgiven. This went on for a number of weeks, and I was still cussing, but I didn’t feel the guilt and shame associated with it. Then, about a month later I realized that I hadn’t used any bad language for days. God had not only forgiven me but washed me as well; the freedom from uncontrolled cussing has lasted almost 40 years.

Over the years I have applied this passage of scripture to countless sin issues in my life with the same results. Some sins went quickly, others took years. Though my actions did not always immediately change, the deep down relief from guilt and shame always came instantly. I believe this is a big part of why I have not missed a days work, because of sickness, in almost 40 years.

Jesus is always the answer to sin and sickness, he is always the one we look to. Either he will tell us through his word what we need to do to live a sickness free life or he will forgive us and heal us when we fail. Jesus is our rescuer. It is not amazing that God can rescue us? What is amazing, is that he wants to, and he will rescue us from sin and sickness, God will forgive you, God cannot lie, His word says he will forgive you and cleanse you, so he will! His word is true and can be trusted. If you want to be washed clean and set free from the guilt, shame and sickness, if you want to be forgiven, you can pray this prayer right now.


Dear Father I realize that _________________ (name the sin) is wrong and displeases you, please forgive me.  I confess it is sin! I thank you that you have forgiven me because Jesus suffered and spilled his own blood to pay for this sin. I also thank you that you are washing _________________ (name the sin) out of my life.

The principle that sin can open us up to disease is also found in the New Testament. James 5:14-16a  makes the connection between confession of sin and healing…

Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well: the Lord will raise him up, and if he has sinned, he will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed..”

Modern science once again confirms what the Bible has been teaching for thousands of years. Guilt and shame affect our hormone levels which can totally mess up our immune systems.


A group of researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) discovered that a cycle of shame and illness was measurable; “enrolling a group of graduate students into a study to examine how their opinions of themselves affect their immune systems. They asked 31 students to write about traumatic or emotional experiences for which they blamed themselves; 18 others were asked to write about experiences that didn’t evoke any guilt or shame. Results of the investigation were presented last week at a meeting of the American Psychosomatic Society in Monterey, Calif. The researchers, led by UCLA social psychology doctoral student Sally Dickerson, say that those participants who wrote about neutral experiences and those who felt guilt over their experience showed no measurable physical changes that might make them ill. However, the students who felt shame for the incidents they wrote about showed an increase in cytokine activity, as measured by blood tests. Cytokines are bodily road signs of inflammation, indicating that a disease process may be in progress.

“The people who felt the most shame had the highest elevation of cytokine activity,”1


In our church and ministry, we have literally seen thousands of people set free from sin, shame and sickness, by applying these simple truths. God told Noah that after the flood, man’s days were to be 120 years, but Psalms 90:8-10 says that our secret sins, if not confessed and repented of, will shorten our days, down to approximately 70-80 years. This is exactly the lifespan of the average American, 75.5 years. And that is about right, since the average American has a lot of guilt and shame that is making them sick.

Many people are suffering and don’t know why. They have spent all their money on doctors and only gotten worse. Many people I talk to cannot seem to do what is necessary to get well. They may know that cigarettes are bad, or sugar is bad, but cannot stop smoking or eating the thing that is killing them. Or they are told that vitamin C and calcium will cure their arthritis, but they are unable to consistently take the supplements that they need. I have even counseled with people who are workaholics, never taking a day off. I have convinced them that they would get more work done in six days than they do in seven, but they can’t seem stop and take a day off, even though they know it is killing them. Often this is due to unconfessed sin in their lives. Until they get forgiveness they are stuck, the apostle Paul says, “I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out.” “Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? 25 Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!” Romans 7:18b and 24-25a

Jesus is the answer. If you find yourself stuck, try making a list of the things that cause you guilt or shame. Then apply 1 John 8-9 to each one separately. If you have already done this and you are still stuck, you may have to go to the next level, as stated in James chapter 5. You may need to find a trusted, godly friend and confess to them and have them help you say out loud that you believe God has forgiven you. James says that we are to confess “one to another”. Usually, confessing to God is enough, but sometimes we need help, and that is where godly friends can be the mouth and ears of Jesus to you.

Ask God daily, to…

 Search me, O God, and know my heart:  try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”  139:23,24 KJV

If not, set aside time each day when you can listen to God. Then apply        1 John 1:8-9

Vitamins and minerals part 3

         Vitamin C; The Granddaddy Of All Vitamins!


Genetics or vitamins, what will determine how long and well you live? Just this week a reporter for ABC news announced that our genes are truly the driving force for how long we will live. The news agency was promoting the idea that you really have no control over how long or well you live, it is all in your genetic makeup. So why bother to eat right and take supplements like vitamin C, if your genetic time clock will stop at its predetermined time anyway? The scientific evidence is abundant and the bible is clear on this issue. Your genes are not the driving force that determines your longevity. First, I am going to share two, out of hundreds of Bible verses, that declare God’s opinion about our ability to lengthen and improve our lives through our life-choices. Then I will give you the scientific evidence that confirms God’s word.

  • Ephesians 6:1-3 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise),“that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.”
  • Deuteronomy 11:18,19a Observe therefore all the commands I am giving you today, so that you may have the strength to go in and take over the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess, and so that you may live long”

The bible does not say that your genes determine your longevity. The bible says your actions determine your strength and longevity. And if that ABC reporter wanted to be honest, the article in Scientific American he was referring to, did also give credit to lifestyle changes for promoting long life.4 True science is not in contradiction to God’s word, it actually confirms the Word of God. The study of epigenetics is another proof of this.

Scientific American has numerous articles on the new science of Epigenetics. Epigenetics is the discovery that lifestyle can change your genes. That is, your genetics are not static they can be altered. We will discuss more about epigenetics in a later article, stay tuned.

            Linus Pauling, Author of “How to live longer and feel better”


Linus Pauling the only person to ever win two undivided Nobel Prizes.1 Pauling has been listed among the “20 greatest scientists of all time.”[6][7]  Francis Crick acknowledged Pauling as the “father of molecular biology“.[8][9]

Linus Pauling is a great case against the idea that your genes determine your longevity. Pauling’s mother only lived to the age of 45, and his father died at the age of 34; not exactly the best genetic heritage that you could ask for. Despite his poor genetic makeup, Pauling lived to the ripe old age of 93 and was very productive in his later years. He attributes his longevity and strength to vitamin C and other supplements.

Linus Pauling, over his lifetime, tried many times to get the Mayo Clinic to repeat his studies his Studies showing vitamin C’s effect on Cancer, but they refused, or altered his techniques and in the end denied that his research in vitamins and minerals was of any value. It seems odd that a man of his stature and renown was unable to get the mainstream medical community to repeat his studies to see for themselves if his theories were true. But, Pauling persisted, and the world has embraced vitamin C as a valuable supplement. Unfortunately, most people who do take vitamin C don’t have any idea what quantities are necessary to get the results that Pauling promised. So here is the unedited version of Pauling journey to greatness and his recommended quantity of vitamin C intake per day.

In 1941, at age 40, Pauling was diagnosed with Bright’s disease,  this disease is distinguished by, inflammation of serous membraneshemorrhagesapoplexyconvulsionsblindnesscoma and, if not treated properly, death. Following the recommendations of Thomas Addis, who actively recruited Ava Helen Pauling, Linus’s wife, as “nutritionist, cook, and eventually as deputy ‘doctor'”, Pauling was able to control the disease with diet changes and vitamin supplements.[134]  It was this instance that convinced Pauling that many deadly diseases could be controlled or eliminated with vitamin and mineral supplements.

In 1966 Pauling started taking 3 grams of vitamin C every day to prevent colds. It worked so well that Pauling published a scientific review of the practice.

This is a white blood cell eating  bacteria.


In the 1970’s, Linus Pauling discovered that it was the white blood cells that need a high dose of vitamin C… to combat the common cold. He also discovered that vitamin C was needed by white blood cells so that they could phagocytize (ingest and destroy) viruses and bacteria.2 This was a major breakthrough in human wellness.

In 1996 a website was created expounding Pauling’s treatment of heart disease, which it referred to as Pauling Therapy. Pauling proved that heart disease can be treated and even cured using only Lysine and Vitamin C and without drugs or heart operations.[139]

In 1971 Pauling and Ewan Cameron, a cancer surgeon, wrote many technical papers and a popular book, Cancer and Vitamin C, that discussed their observations. Pauling made vitamin C popular with the public[141] and eventually published two studies of a group of 10terminal patients that proved vitamin C increased survival by as much as four times, compared to untreated patients.[142][143]  In that study they gave terminal cancer patients large-dose vitamin C supplements (10,000 mg. per day) they saw substantial relief in the 5th to 10th day of treatment. Their patient’s experience increased well-being, tumors were retarded or stopped. Particularly distressing pain from tumor pressure stopped and there was a relief from respiratory distress,3

Another landmark study was done by Dr. Abram Hoffer. Hoffer is a specialist in psychiatry, and in his Canadian practice (in Victoria, British Columbia). More than a decade ago he began to register cancer patients who had been sent to him because of emotional distress, usually, severe depression or anxiety. Dr. Hoffer put them on a regimen involving an average of 12,000 mg. per day  of vitamin C and large amounts of vitamin E, vitamin B3, other B vitamins, beta-carotene, and some minerals. Initially, this was done to improve their mental state, but other benefits quickly became evident.

In a report published in the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine in 1990, Dr. Hoffer and Dr. Cameron, tracked 134 patients with advanced cancer who had come under Dr. Hoffer’s care. The report noted that 33 patients, refused the vitamins and minerals Dr. Hoffer recommended; those patients averaged only a few months of life after beginning therapy. The 101 patients with advanced cancer who followed the vitamin regimen prescribed by Dr. Hoffer, on average, lived 16 times longer than those who did not. Many of the 101 patients were still alive when the study was concluded, so the results may have been even greater.

So, if you don’t have cancer, do you still need vitamin C? Yes, vitamin C is the granddaddy of all vitamins and yields many many great benefits. Here are some other common ailments that vitamin C can cure.


Among other things, allergies, loose teeth and receding gums are a problem of insufficient vitamin C intake. In 2001 my wife’s allergies got really bad, she happened on to some information that suggested vitamin C was a natural antihistamine. Shary started taking about 5,000 mg. of vitamin C, she has never taken allergy medicine since she substituted it with vitamin C. More recently Shary had muscle, joint and tooth pain, she was also experiencing loose teeth and receding gums. Nothing she tried seemed to work until she started taking 10,000 mg of vitamin C. After the first night her teeth quit hurting and her joints started feeling better, she said it was the first time in months that she woke up without pain.

Vitamin C helps your immune system fight off all diseases. Most of us are not taking enough vitamin C to do any good. The governments recommended daily allowance of only 60 mg/ day, will barely keep you from having scurvy. Linus Pauling who made vitamin C a household word, recommended we take 3,000 to 10,000 mg/ day.

Here are some foods that are rich in vitamin C.

  • Yellow bell peppers 569% of the RDA per pepper.
  • Red bell peppers, 349% of the RDA per pepper.
  • Green bell peppers, 220% of the RDA per pepper.
  • Oranges, 116% of the RDA per orange.
  • Broccoli has 149% of the RDA
  • KIWI fruit has 151%
  • Watermelon has 112% per cup.

Note: natural sources tend to be more digestible, thus, more usable to your body. Vitamin C is water soluble so it does not store up in the body and must be eaten every day. If you take too much vitamin C you will get the opposite of constipation (The other way of saying this seems so disagreeable) 🙂 Some people find this an added benefit.

 God says  it is what you do that determines how well and how long you will live, not your genetic make-up or your parental heritage.

 Jeremiah 31:29 Contemporary English Version (CEV) 29 No longer will anyone go around saying, “Sour grapes eaten by parents leave a sour taste in the mouths of their children.”

You are going to have to eat good food, take vitamins and generally listen to the God given advice found in his word, the Bible. Happy eating and happy reading from my family to yours.

Vitamins and Minerals #2

Vitamin D deficiancy

Do we need vitamins and minerals in our diets?


Do vitamins and minerals do any good? Can’t we get everything we need from a healthy diet? Aren’t we just wasting our money on vitamins and minerals, peeing away our hard earned money? These are common questions and ideas promoted by Colleges, healthcare providers and well meaning friends. But did you know there are at least 16 essential vitamins, 12 essential amino acids, 3 essential fatty acids and 8 essential sugars. You don’t need herbs, you don’t need drugs, you need all 90 essential nutrients to live a disease free life. Vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients are not just a nice idea they are absolutely  vital to a long and sickness-free life. Let me give you a few examples.

My wife Shary had sever bleeding problems at every birth except one and she almost bled to death more than once. After those births it took weeks for her to regain her strength. So what was different at that one birth? It was when our son Nathan was born, Shary had bled a lot with our first three kids and doctor Peter Bours decided that he would give her a shot of vitamin K, right before the birth, hoping it would help. While she was in labor he gave her the shot and virtually no bleeding took place at that birth. Why did it work so well? Vitamin K is one of the necessary nutrients needed for blood clotting. All essential nutrients have specific roles in our wellness. Another problem associated with sever bleeding is that it causes the person to become anemic.


Iron suppliments are routinely prescribed by doctors when people become anemic. Common symptoms of anemia are; (fatigue, pale skin, weakness, shortness of breath, chest pain, frequent infections, headaches, dizziness or lightheadedness, cold hands and feet, inflammation or soreness of tongue, brittle nails, fast heartbeat, unusual cravings for non-nutritive substances, such as ice, dirt or starch, poor appetite, especially in infants and children, uncomfortable tingling or crawling feeling in your legs, restless leg syndrome)1. A great source of Iron are raisins, the iron in raisins is almost 100% digestible. Most Iron supplements are made from ground up iron, which can cause internal bleeding and are mostly indigestible. If you have been taking iron supplements and your iron levels are not going up, try raisins. The best minerals are from plant derived sources.


Vitamin D   According to Pubic Health Review; “Early in the twentieth century more than 80 percent of children in industrialized Europe and North America were ravaged by the devastating skeletal consequences of rickets. fortification of dairy products with vitamin D and widespread use of cod liver oil eradicated rickets as a significant health problem by the late 1930s. Many countries mandated the fortification of milk with vitamin D to prevent rickets during wartime shortages. Vitamin D deficiency has again become a major public health interest with its association with osteoporosis, osteomalacia, fractures, and more recently with prevention of cancer, diabetes, heart disease and other chronic illnesses.”2  Why the uptick in vitamin D deficiencies? Because most people have been taught that whole milk is bad so they drink skim milk or 2%. Vitamin D is stored in the milk fat so we now have a generation of people who again are suffering from Vitamin D deficiencies. Once again we find that if we eat our food the closest to the way God made it, we will be better off.

In College my wife and I were told that there was, “no need to take vitamins and minerals, it was just a waste of your money. You can get all you need by eating a healthy diet.”  That one statement is so outrageous and so uneducated that the people who say such things are either lying or they are completely unaware of the world around them. Virtually every one knows why sailors of old got scurvy, and what to do about it. They were suffering from a Vitamin C deficiency. It is almost impossible to buy milk that doesn’t have vitamin D added because a lack of vitamin D would cause an epidemic of rickets.


Bleached Enriched Wheat Flour, Malted Barley Flour (Improves Yeast Baking), Niacin, Iron, Thiamin Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid.

It’s almost impossible to get white flour that is not enriched with vitamins and minerals, because without those vitamins we would again, have an epidemic of pellagra. Before the addition of vitamins and minerals to white flour, pellagra was the worst epidemic to ever hit the U.S.3

Let me reiterate if someone tells you that you don’t need to take vitamins and minerals in our society, that person is mentally, a couple of fries short of a happy meal. If you are suffering from anemia everyone knows you need Iron supplements. If your child has rickets they will be given vitamin D supplements. The idea that we do not need to supplement our diets with vitamins and minerals is foolish if not a crime.

I was talking to a man I met in California, while attending a wedding. When I found out how old he was I asked him for his secret, he looked half his age, maybe even younger. He said he didn’t have one so I asked him if he exercised and he told me he had a Fitbit that made sure he walked a certain number of steps each day. I asked him if he took vitamins and minerals and he said well sure, quit a few each day. So he didn’t have a secret he just did what any intelligent person would do, moderately exercise each day and take vitamins and minerals to supplement their diet.

So how do you know what to take and how much?

In the seventies, I went to school to be a dairyman. In that school we were taught to spot symptoms in dairy cows and then to treat those symptoms with vitamins and minerals.  There are veterinary books that describe symptoms and corresponding vitamin and mineral treatments.  They work!  One time Shary was complaining of all the symptoms that dairymen called “milk fever or cow fever”. I chose my words carefully making certain that I did not use the word “cow” and explained to her that she was experiencing a vitamin and mineral deficiency. We purchase what  she needed and it worked, all the symptoms where gone. So should you get that dairyman’s manual? Nope, we are not cows, though some deficiencies diseases are common among all mammals, you need to get a vitamin and mineral reference for you.

Dr. Joel Wallach has produced a corresponding volume for humans called Lets play Doctor. Another great book is Prescription for Nutritional Healing by Phyllis A. Balch

Purchasing one or both of these books is a must for anyone who wants out of the “system” and is ready to take charge of his or her own health.  There must be something wrong with the system when American citizens are paying 1.2 trillion dollars in health care each year.  And the American people are less healthy than almost all other industrial nations.  According to Joel Wallach we give our dogs 40 essential minerals in Science Diet dog food.  We give lab rats 28 essential minerals in Purina food pellets and we only give our human babies 12 minerals in their baby food.  And we wonder why young children have poor health and are getting autism, cancer and other horrible diseases in unheard of numbers.

I make a lot of references to Dr. Wallach, because he is one of the few health experts that rarely gives advice about food that is contrary to the teachings of the Bible. He has also done some of the most extensive research we have ever seen. The wonderful thing is that through research he has come to some of the same conclusions that we have come to by studying the Scriptures. True science is not in opposition to the teachings of the bible. The world of God is not in conflict with the word of God. The more scientist study, the more they find that the God of the bible is the God who created man and the earth.

Almost everything we have tried, that Wallach has suggested, has worked..

Here is another American problem of epidemic proportions.


Arthritis and joint problems are at epidemic proportions and are some of the easiest problems to fix. They include Aching hands, knee problems, hip problems, rotator cup and shoulder problems, disc and back problems, foot and arch problems. The reason we in the States have so much trouble with this is because we do not eat all the connective tissue in meat. We also rarely boil soup stock any more with bone in it. Both of these practices provide us with cartilage material and calcium in our food.   I have lost count of the number of people I have helped to get rid of these unnecessary afflictions. The long term solution is to boil our meat with the bone on it and drink the soup stock.


But; the quick fix is a packet of Knox gelatin, (ground up connective tissue) which can be purchased at any grocery store for very little money, mixed in a glass of calcium enriched Minute Maid orange juice, once a day, along with a vitamin and mineral supplement that contains all 90 essential nutrients. (You can get that at American Youngevity). The younger you are the quicker the cure. If you are over 30, it just takes a little longer.  By the way, we stole this idea from Dr. Wallach.


Your body needs raw materials to do its job.  If you are having joint problems your body needs Calcium and joint material.  A friend of mine, who had stopped playing soccer because of knee pain, told me that his knees had swollen badly and he had to take painkillers every day just to walk and move around.  I suggested he try Knox gelatin.  He took my advice, in about a month, he told me that he was pain free, without medication. A high school freshman told me that he couldn’t run track because of knee problems, I suggested Knox gelatin. He was running in only a couple of weeks and by the end of the season, he had improved to the point that he took fifth in the one-hundred-meter dash at the state track meet. Another young man told me that he couldn’t pitch on the high school baseball team anymore because of a rotator cup problem. You guessed it. He did it, and he ended up pitching through the entire season. The following year he pitched his team to a state championship. Doctors will tell you that it is impossible to regrow cartilage and they are right, that is, if you do not give your body the raw materials it needs. I am not using these examples to show that you will improve your athletic ability, but to show that people who are using their joints to the maximum can not only improve their joint health with the addition of proper nutrients, but can also thrive under even the most rigorous conditions.

In the September 24, 1993 edition of the Denver Post, the Harvard Medical School and Boston V.A. Hospital published a study. They did the study to prove Dr. Wallach wrong. Dr. Wallach was prescribing the above, inexpensive formula, to people suffering from rheumatoid arthritis and knee and other joint problems.  Harvard picked arthritis sufferers for their study who had failed to respond in any way to standard medical treatment.  The only thing left for these patients was joint replacement surgery.  They were asked to postpone their surgeries and suffer 90 more days. 59 volunteers were found (Not sure I would have volunteered). 28 received Knox gelatin only, and 31 received placebos. The 31 who took placebos got worse.  So what happened to the other 29?  After 10 days all the pain and inflammation was gone. In 30 days they had full use of their hands, and after 90 days they had maximum return of function.  Harvard’s report was that “The DRUG had been beneficial.”  In 90 days Knox gelatin had become a drug. So what did Harvard Medical School do? They patented their discovery, and are selling it to their patients at an unbelievably exaggerated price.4

If anyone tells you that taking vitamins is a waste of time and money; they either trying to sell you prescription drugs instead, or  they may be rowing but they don’t have all of their mental oars in the water. Anyone who thinks you don’t need supplements, couldn’t pour water out of a boot with instructions on the heel. So if you want to live a long sickness free life in our society, drugs are not the answer, essential nutrients are. God has told us what food is good, what food is bad and how to treat the land so that our food will meet our needs. God says that refined foods are so bad for you and me that eating them is like cutting our own throats with a knife (Proverbs 23:1-3) and according to John chapter 1 and Hebrews 1:2; Jesus created the heavens and the earth and everything in them. Everything includes Man and Food for man. His instructions are in his Word, the Bible, for our benefit. Happy eating.

Next week we will look at more common nutritional deficiencies and how to fix them.  We will also talk about how to read highly misleading food labels.
