The Asthma Epidemic Is Preventable!

Asthma, epidemic, preventable, disease, Bible, Dr. Wallach

The Asthma Epidemic is preventable!

Someone is going to be asthma free, might as well be you! Some family is going to be asthma free might as well be yours! Following Biblical advice, can help you and yours avoid this devastating and costly disease.

 

Asthma, epidemic, preventable, disease, Bible, Dr. Wallach
Asthma is the leading chronic disease in children.

Exodus 23:20-26 states, in a nutshell; If you listen carefully to all that I (God) say, and do it, I will remove all sickness from you, and I will give you a full life span. We believe that this sickness-free promise includes asthma.

How prevalent is asthma?

  • According to the Centers for Disease Control, 1 in 13 people have asthma.
  • Asthma is the leading chronic disease in children. It is also the top reason for missed school days.
  • Asthma causes almost 2 million emergency room visits each year.
  • Each day, ten Americans die from asthma.

What is asthma?

Asthma causes swelling of the airways. This results in narrowing of the airways that carry air from the nose and mouth to the lungs. Symptoms include trouble breathing, wheezing, coughing and tightness in the chest. In severe cases, asthma can be deadly.

What does Dr. Joel Wallach say about asthma? 

Asthma, epidemic, preventable, disease, Bible, Dr. Wallach

Asthma is actually a deficiency of three nutrients: magnesium, manganese, and the essential fatty acids (EFA).  And by taking the Pig Arthritis formula twice a day you’re going to get the optimal amounts of te plant-derived colloidal and the chelated magnesium and manganese.  And then by taking minimum daily requirements of the 9 grams of the essential fatty acids, that would be 3 of the Ultimate EFA capsules with each meal, 9 a day, that’s going to give you the minimum daily requirement of the essential fatty acids, and those three nutrients together – magnesium, manganese, essential fatty acids, will allow you to produce what’s called prostaglandin.

Prostaglandin’s are little short-lived hormones that last in your bloodstream 30 seconds, 60 seconds.  So your body is continuously making them, kind of rapid-fire, and when you don’t have those three nutrients you’re not making the proper prostaglandin’s to keep your bronchi and your tracheae open, and that’s when you develop asthma.

It’s very common when people take all 90 essential nutrients including the magnesium and manganese and the essential fatty acids, within weeks or months the tightness that’s a constant tightness in their chest is significantly reduced, or even totally relieved.  The frequency and severity of their asthma attacks significantly is reduced.  Certainly still keep an inhaler available in case you have some unexpected emergency, kind of like wearing your seat belt.  Even though you’re on a smooth flight and you’re not going to anticipate sudden turbulence, you need to be prepared for emergencies, but you have every honest expectation of doing very well.”

According to Dr. Wallach, these are the foods to avoid that can lead to asthma and foods to eat that will reduce your risk of an asthma attack.

Foods to avoid.

Wheat and any food with gluten

Barley

Rye

Oats

Fried foods

Oils in a bottle

Well done Red meat

Nitrates or Nitrites

Crispy skin or baked potatoes

Carbonated drinks/Soda

Foods to eat.

Eggs

Butter

Salt

Dark leafy vegetables

Nuts, except peanuts

Rice and Beans

Red meat

Poultry

God’s word!

Once again, the foods God said to eat will help you avoid asthma and other diseases. The foods that God said not to eat will increase your risk of disease. (see our article “Where to begin”)

Asthma, epidemic, preventable, disease, Bible, Dr. Wallach

None of our children or grandchildren have asthma. Our daughter Leah, the one pictured above, did started developing asthma symptoms while going to college. She had an athletic scholarship at Oregon State University. Her sport was crew, which required a lot of heavy breathing and many, many hours of practice. Getting good grades and competing at the Pac-12  level created a lot of stress. My wife Shary, got her to increase her Essential Fatty Acid consumption, so by changing her diet she was able compete without any more symptoms. She is now a health teacher and mother of two beautiful children; she and her family are asthma free.

Did you do something wrong or is this problem just a test?

Test, Bible, trouble, sickness, Job

Sometimes we are just going through a test.

If we at Wellness Gospel have given you the impression that you will never get sick  if you do  things the way we suggest; we apologize, we have miss-communicated. Sometimes we as Christians are just going through a test!

Test, Bible, trouble, sickness, Job
The perfect Christian doing everything just right.

From time to time people lump us together with the preachers who tell people that if they have enough faith they will never experience problems or get sick. They are the name it and claim it crowd. When you or I get sick and can’t get well, they blame it on “our” lack of faith. This kind of help isn’t Biblical, it is not nice and it is not true. Let’s get real, not all sickness is a result of doing something wrong or not having enough faith, sometimes it is just a test.

Years ago we had a group of people at our church that were telling everyone that whatever people said was what would come to pass. They told us if you say something like, “I’ll just die if that person doesn’t like me” then you will die. If you say, “this new job will make me rich” then you will get rich. Again, let’s get real, all you have to do is try this to find out that it isn’t true, It is not how God works. If this doctrine were true we  would all be dead and rich! 🙂

Test, Bible, trouble, sickness, Job
If that doctrine were true, we would all be dead and rich!

We believe that “generally speaking,” if we follow God’s advice we will be healthy. But, that does not mean that we will never get sick or have bad things happen to us.

There are a lot of things in the Bible that are meant to be taken as a generally rule, but not meant to be a formula.

A great example would be Psalm 15:1. This passage says…

  “A soft answer turns away wrath,
but a harsh word stirs up anger.”

This is generally true, but not always true. Everyone has experienced a time when they gave an angry person a soft answer and that person just got madder. Generally; it will calm people down, but not always. If we are to be honest and real with ourselves, we know this to be true. We have all experience a time when someone was mad at us and we spoke softly and respectfully and the person was still angry. There are millions of battered spouses who can tell you that a soft answer does not work on truly mean people. Giving a soft answer to a mean drunk won’t stop them from hurting people. This applies to other things in the Bible that people want to make into a formula. Most advice in the Bible is  meant to be generally true.

So what should we do when we get sick?

Test, Bible, trouble, sickness, Job

When we are sick, the first thing we should do is check to see if we are violating those general rules. Lets get that out of the way first, for example…

  • Are you getting enough rest? You were made in God’s image, he rested on the seventh day so are you taking one day a week to just rest?
  • Are you getting enough sleep? Psalm 127 says that God gives sleep to those he loves and that we are not to rise up early and stay up late eating the bread of anxious toil. We are to work a reasonable number of hours a day, and then trust that God will take care of all our needs.
  • Are you angry at anyone, do you have a generally cheerful heart? God say that a merry heard is a cure.
  • Eating the things God said to eat, (Red meat, milk, eggs, fish, honey, butter, salt, etc) and avoiding the things God said would harm you, (Pork, shellfish, highly processed food, sugar, etc)
  • Walking with God? Are you regularly doing something that you know God does not want you to do? Are you regularly using your God given gifts to advance God’s kingdom.

If you have checked yourself on the above and you can “generally” say you are following God’s advice, then maybe you are like Job in the Bible, you are experiencing trouble because you are one of God’s favorite people and you are just going through a test.

You might be experiencing sickness because, like Job, you are one of God’s favorite people! 

Yep! It is possible that your problem isn’t because you are doing something wrong, but instead it is because you are a child of God and doing something right. You, like Job may be experiencing a test. It has been said that the only time a teacher doesn’t’ answer your questions, is during a test! Job experience this and maybe you are experiencing this now. Be patient, tests always come to an end.

Someone might say that we are not Job, and his story was written in the old testament so it doesn’t apply to us today. But, we cannot say that, because Paul wrote in the new testament that the things in the old testament were written as examples to us, to warn us. They are things that could happen to us. What happened to Job could happen to you or me.  1 Corinthians 10:11 states…

“These things (stories in the old testament) happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the culmination of the ages has come.” 

So what happened to Job?

Test, Bible, trouble, sickness, Job
Satan had afflicted job with painful sores. Job is surrounded by friends who are trying to get him to confess what he did wrong.

In a nutshell what happened to Job goes something like this, check it out for your self by reading the book of Job.

  • Chapter 1 God is bragging about Job and what a wonderful person he is. Satan over-hears it and tells God that the only reason Job is so good is because God is protecting him and blessing him. Satan tells God, ” if you just let me take his stuff he will curse you”. God tells Satan, go ahead you will see that you are wrong. Satan does his worst and Job suffers greatly but does not curse God.
  • Chapter 2  God basically says, see you were wrong about Job. Satan says it was just because you didn’t let me make him sick, if you let me touch his body then he will curse you. Once again God says go ahead, he will still not curse me. Satan does his worst, covering Job’s body with painful sores.  Job maintains his integrity and does not curse God.
  • The following chapters are full of “friends” telling Job that he must have done something wrong. In the end God restores Job’s health and all his stuff, times two. Then God rebukes Job’s friends for accusing Job of doing wrong simply because he was sick.

This is what the new testament calls a test!

James 1:12

Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love Him.

Not every sickness is a direct result of someone’s doing something wrong!

The Bible says our enemy the Devil stands before God day and night accusing us of doing something wrong, (Revelations 12:10). When we submit to God and his advice, when we resisting the Devil and his temptation to give up and get angry with God. The Bible says the Devil, will flee from us.

“Submit yourselves, then, to God, resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”      (James 4:7)

“The thief (Satan) comes only to kill steal and destroy, Jesus Christ came that we may have life and that abundantly.John 10:10

So what are we to do when the Devil attacks us and puts us to the test? When we go on mission trips that are going to be incredibly productive for the kingdom of God, we are always met with strong resistance.

Story of a test for teen missionaries in Mexico.

On one trip, just before an evangelistic meeting, one of our leading youth, Tim Ray, came down with all the symptoms of the flu, aches, pains, nausea, vomiting, etc.  We were in the city of Durango north of Mexico City, Tim had a lead part, in a powerful gospel drama, and there was no one to replace him. So what did we do? We prayed for him and he bravely continued on, sick as a dog. Tim actually threw up while waiting for his part in the drama. When we finished the drama and had shared the Gospel, Tim realized that he was completely healed. He had resisted the enemy’s attempt to stop him from ministering and the enemy left him. Tim passed the test by continuing to minister. On that trip, over 3000 people prayed to receive Jesus Christ as their savior.

Test, Bible, trouble, sickness, Job
Missionaries from our local church preaching the gospel in Mexico.

It is common for veteran missionaries to actually prejudge the effectiveness of a mission trip by how much resistance they get from the enemy before and during the trip, how much testing.

“Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.”  1 Peter 5:8

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground”        Ephesians 6:10-13a   

It is not our wrongdoing it is just a test!

Notice, it’s not our armor, it’s God’s full armor!

It’s not our power; it’s God’s mighty power!

Jesus’ armor gives us the power to resist the Devil, and if we resist him, he (The Devil) will flee.  It is not about you or me, it is always about Jesus.

Biblical look at the Netflix documentary “WHAT THE HEALTH”

A Biblical perspective on the Netflix documentary, “WHAT The HEALTH”

What the Health, vegan, cancer, diabetes, hearth disease, meat, dairy, butter, milk, cheese, fish, poultry, chicken, eggs, Bible, science

My daughter-in-law Anya, came to me the other day and asked me to watch the Netflix documentary, “What the Health”, she said that it is super popular right now and a lot of her friends have changed their diets after watching it. Now, they are  wondered why she and her family still eat meat and dairy products, because, “WHAT The HEALTH” clearly shows how bad meat and dairy products are”. Anya asked me to give some kind of rebuttal, because frankly, she didn’t know what to say to all of her friends who had seen the movie, and because she knows that we have always eaten a lot of meat, dairy and eggs and our family is very healthy.

According to WHAT THE HEALTH creators, Kip Anderson and Leonardo DiCaprio…

“What The Health is a groundbreaking documentary. The film follows intrepid filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the secret to preventing and even reversing chronic diseases. What the Health exposes the collusion and corruption in government and big business that is costing us trillions of healthcare dollars, and keeping us sick.”

The movie is backed by actor Leonardo DiCaprio and is getting a fantastic reception here in the U.S. and changing the way America eats.

The basic message of the movie, WHAT The HEALTH.

  • We have a lot of disease in the U.S.; Cancer, diabetes, heart disease etc.
  • Processed foods are contributing to the problem.
  • Sugar and high carbohydrate diets are not the problem.
  • Meat and Dairy products are the biggest reason for disease.
  • The meat and dairy industry is destroying the planet.
  • Becoming a Vegan is the solution.

When we first got interested in eating healthy we were pulled to and fro by all the “expert voices”.

We heartily agree with the first two messages in the documentary but disagree with the last four. When we first got interested in eating healthy we were pulled to and fro by all the “expert voices”. The Bible calls it “winds of doctrine” they blow every which way. We even tried being vegetarians for a while, but we found that all the voices were not singing in harmony. They actually contradicted each other on a daily basis. So who were we going to believe? We finally decided to let God be the judge as to what is healthy and what is not, what we should eat and what we shouldn’t. That is when I quit getting sick and when we quit needing doctors and medicine altogether. My wife Shary says that her friends often ask her what medications she takes. Here answer is “none”, we don’t want or need them.

WHAT The HEALTH suggests we not eat…

  • Any type of meat, (beef, poultry, fish, etc).
  • Dairy products of any kind, (Milk, butter, cheese, cottage cheese, yogurt, etc). This includes goats milk and they even suggested that human milk was dangerous to babies.
  • Any type or form of Eggs.

What does the Bible say?

The authors of “WHAT THE HEATH”, believe that eating animal products is not only unhealthy but immoral. Obviously, God does not agree, since none of the great men and women in the Bible were vegans. Able ate meat but Cain did not.  Moses ate meat, Samuel ate meat. David ate meat, all of the priests ate meat. Most of them lived to be more than 100 years old. Jesus and the disciples ate meat. Abraham ate meat and dairy and offered meat and dairy products to God and his angels before they destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah. And… wait for it… they ate meat and dairy products!

 Genesis 18:1-8      

      Now the LORD appeared to him (Abraham) by the oaks of Mamre, while he was sitting at the tent door in the heat of the day. When he lifted up his eyes and looked, behold, three men were standing opposite him; and when he saw them, he ran from the tent door to meet them and bowed himself to the earth, and said, “My Lord, if now I have found favor in Your sight, please do not pass Your servant by. “Please let a little water be brought and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree; and I will bring a piece of bread, that you may refresh yourselves; after that you may go on, since you have visited your servant.” And they said, “So do, as you have said.” So Abraham hurried into the tent to Sarah, and said, “Quickly, prepare three measures of fine flour, knead it and make bread cakes.” Abraham also ran to the herd, and took a tender and choice calf and gave it to the servant, and he hurried to prepare it. He took curds and milk and the calf which he had prepared, and placed it before them; and he was standing by them under the tree as they ate.

 Our experience, eating meat and dairy products.

What the Health, vegan, cancer, diabetes, hearth disease, meat, dairy, butter, milk, cheese, fish, poultry, chicken, eggs, Bible, science
If WHAT The HEALTH teaches was true, our family would look more like this.

WHAT The HEALTH tries to make the case that beef, chicken, turkey, fish, milk, cheese, yogurt, cottage cheese and eggs are very bad for us and the reason people are getting diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Our family has been consuming these foods as the foundation of our diets for over 40 years. About 40 years ago we began to eliminate highly processed foods, especially sugar. Then we started eating more Biblical; (Red meat, milk, butter, cheese, eggs and poultry, the result is that none of us have diabetes or heart disease.

When all of our kids lived at home.

When all the kids lived at home, our family consumed 6 gallons of milk a day and ate innumerable eggs. We never paid for health insurance and never needed it. Most of our children never saw a doctor while living with us and following Biblical dietary habits. Shary gave birth to 13 healthy babies. We then raised those babies to be very healthy children and adults. So far those 13 children have raised 48 very healthy grandchildren.

Shary stayed healthy and produced thirteen healthy babies eating eggs, meat. and drinking lots of milk.

For an in-depth look at what the Bible and science says about meat, eggs, milk, butter, salt, and processed foods, just go to our website, wellnessgospel.net and use the search option for the food item you want to research.

In Conclusion

The Bible does encourage fasting for limited periods of time. We believe there are spiritual and physical benefits to fasting. Eating a vegan diet can produce beneficial results if done for a short time, but making this a permanent lifestyle change will shorten your life. In our research we have never found a lifelong vegan or vegetarian, that made it to the 100 year mark. Conversely, all of the super-centenarians and oldest living persons, ate meat, eggs and drank milk and lots of it.

ONCE AGAIN, WE BELIEVE THE ONLY WAY TO EXCEPTIONAL EMOTIONAL, SPIRITUAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH, IS TO SPEND TIME EACH DAY LISTENING TO THE GREAT PHYSICIAN, JESUS CHRIST, AND DOING WHAT HE SAYS.
