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

Fish

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.

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.

Biblical look at 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

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.

relaxation breathing in labor
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.

Some Good loving Christian teachers drive me crazy!!!

Super-centenarians, food, Bible, God, milk, butter, eggs, red meat, salt, cheese

This stuff drives me crazy!!!

A friend of mine called me the other day and said I should listen to a very popular Christian radio program. I know believe he was trying to drive me crazy and thought it would be funny to get my reaction. He listens to this program regularly and the last couple of days they were talking about how Christians should honor God by taking good care of their bodies. They had some very specific ways they believed you should do that. He said he thought I would enjoy it. Yeah, right!

I was hanging out in my living room with family and decided to get on my computer and looked up their archived shows and listen. My son Angelo was hanging out with me at the house; as soon as he heard what they were peddling, he immediately started laughing at me. He said our friend knew what I believed and was obviously trying to see how agitated he could get me.

Well it worked, I got agitated! *&%$#&**@#$%^. The more I listened and the more I thought about it the crazier I got!

Crazy,Super-centenarians, food, Bible, God, milk, butter, eggs, red meat, salt, cheese
This stuff makes us crazy!!! What are those people thinking? (Granddaughter Sadie & I)

The next time I saw my friend, I accused him of baiting me; he looked all innocent and acted shocked that I would suggest such a thing. He went on to tell me that he thought I would really like it, seeing how I love hearing health advice from the Bible. Right, I’m not buying his story.

So, that radio program is one I generally appreciate, (not going to mention their name).  They give out a lot of great Christian advice, some of which has had a huge beneficial impact on my family over the years. Like when they told me how I could almost eliminate my wife’s PMS, that one bit of advice has probably saved my life more than once.

What got me so agitated and crazy? Well I’ll tell ya! They were saying that we had an obligation to God to take good care of our bodies, which I agree with. Then they proceeded to give example after example of things that we shouldn’t eat. Every suggestion was opposed to God’s word and to current scientific discoveries. Click here for more infomation.

 So what, in a nutshell were they advocating?

  • Don’t eat red meat.
  • Avoid milk, especially whole milk.
  • Stay away from salt.
  • Stop eating eggs.
  • Use margarine instead of butter.
  • Above all, never eat cheese again!

 

This is crazy and here is why this gets me so agitated!!! Millions of good God loving Christians are sick and dying young because they are following this kind of advice. They do not believe, or have not been taught that the instructions God has given us about food, matters. Well meaning, bible believing Christians are teaching people to abstain from food that God has ordained for them to eat. And then they tell us, the reason you should avoid these foods is to honor God.

If I told one of my kids to do something, and they said the reason they weren’t going to do it was so they could honor me.  I would be more than perplexed it would make me crazy.

Fortunately God is not like me; what we do can’t make him crazy, cuz if it could, we would have made him crazy a long time ago. But, the real reason for this is simply a lack of knowledge about what God has said about food.

Hosea 4:6 says: My people parish for lack of knowledge (Biblical knowledge)

So let me show you what God says about these foods and show how super-centenarians follow God’s advice instead of the crazy experts.

These super-centenarians  outlived all the experts of their time and so will you if you listen to God.

In Exodus 23:25-26 God said that if we obey all his commandments, He will…take away sickness  from among you” and  “give you a full life span.

 Red Meat

Leviticus 11:1-3 The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, ‘Say to the Israelites: Of all the animals that live on land, these are the ones you may eat: You may eat any animal that has a split hoof completely divided and that chews the cud.’”     (That is the definition of what we today call red meat)

At 105 Reverend Otis Clark told me he ate red meat twice a day. He was still preaching vigorously at the age of 109. click here to watch him!

Crazy, Super-centenarians, food, Bible, God, milk, butter, eggs, red meat, salt, cheese

Milk

  • Exodus 3:7-8 says that God was going to bless his people by taking them to… a land flowing with milk and honey
  • I Corinthians 9:7 “who tends the flock and does not drink of the milk?”
  • Deuteronomy 32:13-14 says “He (God) nourished him with…curds and milk from herd  and  flock.”
  • Proverbs 27:27 says, “You will have plenty of goat’s milk to feed you and your family and to nourish your servant girls.” 

In 2008, Tomoji Tanabe was the oldest  male alive with the necessary papers to prove it. At 113 years old, he lived on the island of Kyushu, Japan with his fifth son, who was 68 years old. Reporters wanted to know if Tamoji was tired of living, so, they asked him, “How much longer do you want to live?”, thinking that he can’t possibly have much quality of life at 113.  He simply replied “I don’t want to die.” He was still getting enjoyment out of life.

Tamoji said that he drinks milk every day. Actually, he is known to “guzzle” milk.

Tomoj Tanabe at 113 years old.

Mbah Gotho at 147 years is probably the oldest living person on the planet. I read an article years ago, about an Indonesian man who was claiming to be over 140. Therefore, I think it was Gotho. As I remember the story, he did not make it into the Guinness Book of World Records, because he did not have the proper paper work to prove his age. His longevity was pretty believable though. He had a son who took care of him that was over 100 years old.

Mbah Gotho remembers watching a local sugar factory being built when he was about 10, that factory was built in 1880, you do the math. All that to say this, it is very likely that he is way over 100 years old and he claimes to drink close to a gallon of goats milk every day. Evidently, the milk didn’t hurt his longevity. I hope this drives the no-milk people crazy.

Salt

  • In Mark 9:50 Jesus made this statement…    Salt is good.”
  • Leviticus 2:13 “Add salt to all your offerings
  • Numbers 18:18-19Their meat is to be yours, just as the breast of the wave offering and the right thigh are yours. Whatever is set aside from the holy offerings the Israelites present to the Lord I give to you and your sons and daughters as your regular share. It is an everlasting covenant of salt before the Lord for both you and your offspring.”

God gave the offerings to the priests and the tribe of Levi. They did not receive land like the other tribes so they got their food from offerings. All the offerings were salted, consequently the tribe of Levi got lots of salt in their diets. The first priests were Moses, Aaron and Levi, Moses lived to be 120, Aaron 123 and Levi made it to 137. These guys lived to be crazy old; again, salt evidently did’t shorten their lives.

Eggs 

  • 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!”

Emma Morano was the oldest “documented” person on the planet, she had the paper work to prove her age. Emma lived in three different centuries, that is, she was the last person alive, who was born in the 1800’s. She was born November 29th1899, in the Piedmont region of Italy, when King Umberto reigned.  At 117 years old, Emma Morano still had a sense of humor and a keen wit and a love for eggs.

Crazy, Super-centenarians, food, Bible, God, milk, butter, eggs, red meat, salt, cheese
Eggs, eggs and more eggs!

Emma eats three eggs each day, two raw and one fried egg with minced meat.

Her doctor said she must have great genetic makeup because he believes she is doing is crazy.  She disagrees with her doctor and says her diet is one reason she has outlived everyone else on the planet. The other reason she gives for her longevity, is her escape from an awful marriage. An evil spouse will definitely shorten anyone’s life or make you wish it was shorter.

When Emma was a teenager, a doctor made a crazy suggestion. He told her to eat raw eggs to combat her anemia. You see Emma was like most everyone else, she was sick and headed for a short disease filled life.  Someone suggested she eat eggs, something that the Bible says is very good. She has followed a stringent diet of two raw eggs, one cooked egg, a little minced meat and pasta for the past 100 years.

Emma Morano at 117 eat a lot of eggs in her life.

  • Carlo Bava, Emma’s doctor, said she has perfect cholesterol and glucose levels. “She is in a great state of health and mind,”he said. “The fact that she has never had much variety in her diet is proof that she is so well-preserved thanks to genetics.” Once again a medical doctor believes that genetics are the answer to long life. God says that long life is not found in genetics. Genetics are out of your control. Long life is found in lifestyle, which we can improve by simply listening to and following God’s advice. Emma is the living proof that following God’s advice works.
  • Deuteronomy  32:45b-47aTake to heart all the words I have solemnly declared to you this day, so that you may command your children to obey carefully all the words of this law. They are not just idle words for you—they are your life. By them you will live long” 

 

  • Butter and Cheese

  •  Sarah and Abraham, of bible fame, ate butter, red meat and drank milk. Sarah lived to be 127 and was so beautiful, that at 65, “the Egyptians saw the woman, that she was very beautiful.  The princes of Pharaoh also saw her and commended her to Pharaoh.” (Gen 12:14-15) She was so vivacious that she was able to carried and give birth to a healthy child at 90 years old. After giving birth, the King of Gerar found her so attractive that he wanted her to be his wife, crazy right? Abraham was so healthy that he lived to be 175. Evidently, the butter they ate didn’t hurt them. Maybe, just maybe, it was why they were so healthy.
  • 2 Samuel 17:27-29 wheat, barley, flour, parched grain, beans, lentils, parched seeds, honey, curds, sheep, and cheese of the herd, for David and for the people
  • Isaiah 7:14-15 “Therefore, the Lord Himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive, have a son, and name him Emmanuel,  By the time he learns to reject what is bad and choose what is good, he will be eating butter, curds(cheese) and honey.”

Yes you read that right, when Jesus was old enough to know what was good and what was bad he choose to eat butter, cheese and honey. If you want to live long and strong you will have to do the crazy thing and follow God’s advice. Reject man’s wisdom, even if it comes from well meaning experts.

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

The Oldest Person In The World!

Live longer eat eggs.

Eggs and the oldest person in the world!

Emma Morano is the oldest person on the planet, and has the paper work to prove it. Emma has lived in three different centuries, that is, she is the last person alive, who was born in the 1800’s. Emma was born November 29th 1899, in the Piedmont region of Italy, when King Umberto reigned.  At 117 years old, Emma Morano still has a sense of humor and a keen wit and a love for eggs.

Emma’s Secret!

Her doctor says she must have great genetic makeup because he believes she is doing everything wrong. Emma eats three eggs each day, two raw and one fried egg with minced meat. She disagrees with her doctor and says her diet is one reason she has outlived everyone else on the planet. The other reason she gives for her longevity, is her escape from an awful marriage. An evil spouse will definitely shorten anyone’s life or make you wish it was shorter.

So back to Emma’s secret to long life, when Emma was a teenager, a doctor suggested that she eat raw eggs to combat her anemia. You see Emma was like most everyone else, she was sick and headed for a short disease filled life, but someone suggested she eat eggs, something that the Bible says is very good. [2] She has followed a stringent diet of two raw eggs, one cooked egg, a little minced meat and pasta for the past 90 years.

Live longer eat eggs.
Emma Morano at 117 has eaten a lot of eggs in her life.

Carlo Bava, Emma’s doctor, said she has perfect cholesterol and glucose levels. “She is in a great state of health and mind,” he said. “The fact that she has never had much variety in her diet is proof that she is so well-preserved thanks to genetics.” Once again a medical doctor believes that genetics are the answer to long life. God says that long life is not found in genetics, which are out of your control, long life is found in lifestyle, which we can improve by simply listening to and following God’s advice, Emma is the living proof.

Deuteronomy  32:45b-47a Take to heart all the words I have solemnly declared to you this day, so that you may command your children to obey carefully all the words of this law. 47 They are not just idle words for you—they are your life. By them you will live long” 

God says that eggs are good! A number of years ago, I started a new habit of making myself a health smoothie for breakfast each morning. I don’t know about you, but I often forget to take my vitamins and I don’t really like taking pills anyway. So, this was a way to make it less disagreeable and get it all done at once. I have a theory, if I don’t like doing it, eventually I will quit. So, when I make my health smoothies I put everything in I need for the day.

  • I start with two raw eggs, which provide the highest quality protein money can buy.
  • I then add Dr. Wallach’s Ultimate Classic vitamin/mineral mix, so I get all my maintenance essentials.
  • Then I add an orange or mixed frozen berries with 6000 mg. of vitamin C to provide optimum antioxidants, which boost my immune system. [4]
  • I add one pack of Knox gelatin, to keep my joints in great shape. [5]
  • I put in a spoonful of honey for taste and to lower the pH level. Science has proved that our bodies and our immune systems function much better with a low pH level. Bacteria cannot live in a low pH environment. [3]
  • Finally, I add goats milk for taste and high quality calcium for my bones and teeth.
  • I put it all in my Nutra Bullet and turn it into a smoothie.

NutriBullet, eggs, longevity

Does it work? My joints feel great, I can still do 50 push-ups without stopping, I can’t remember the last time I had a cold or the flue, I feel great.

What about raw eggs?

I have a friend who is a doctor, and generally likes natural remedies. When he heard I ate raw eggs, he nearly had a heart attack. He told me in no uncertain terms that I was playing Russian roulette with those raw eggs. He said that eventually I would get one of those eggs with salmonella poising and I would be a goner. Maybe he is right, but Emma Morano has been doing it for over 90 years; either she is incredibly lucky or those raw eggs have kept her free from disease. I believe the latter, I believe a good immune system can handle the extremely rare bacteria or virus that might end up on a raw egg. [6][7][8]

Emma’s other secret!

The other secret to Emma’s long life: separating from her husband in 1938, decades before divorce was even legal in Italy. Her one true love was a boy killed during World War I, and she did not intend to marry anyone else. Emma eventually married Giovanni Martinuzzi  after he forced her to do so, “He said, ‘If you’re lucky, you marry me, or I’ll kill you.“  The New York Times quotes Emma, “I didn’t want to be dominated by anyone.” A year after her 6-month-old child died, she left Martinuzzi. [1]

Once again we have a centenarian who eats red meat and eggs and her cholesterol is fine, just like the Bible says it will be. She does not have Alzheimers, her attitude is great, she has not allowed the world to stress her out, even though she lived through two world wars and an abusive husband. Following God’s advice concerning health and wellness will always produce the best results. But what if I don’t perfectly follow everything the Bible teaches about long life? What if Emma has a bad habit known to produce ill health?

Emma’s bad habit.

According to her local newspaper “despite her age, Emma has a childlike love of cookies. “She particularly loves Savoiardi cookies and hides them behind her pillow so no one will eat them,” Bava said of the traditional Italian treat, also known as ladyfingers.

Almost all the really old people we have studied have one bad habit that no one would recommend. Jeanne Calment lived to the ripe old age of 122, she smoked cigarettes most of her life. 147-year-old Mbah Gotho also smokes and Emma Morano eats cookies. All that to say this; anything done in moderation probably won’t kill you. What will kill you is to be so serious about doing everything just right that you get sick from stress. There is a popular blog site called “Eat the damn cake”. It is a reaction to the militant, “We have to do everything perfect people”, you know the ones; those people who are, “doing everything right”, but dying from stress.

It is not any one thing that you do or don’t do that will ensure long life or kill you. It is everything, including your attitude. God says not to be anxious about anything (Philippians 4:7). I believe that the closer you get to what God says to do, or don’t do, the better life will be for you. But if you obsess over everything, you will either quit the whole thing, or you will stress yourself into a grave. Emma obviously is not stressing herself.

I was talking to a friend the other day, this friend looks much younger that he is. I asked him what his secret was, he said, “I have a very stress free life and I intend to keep it that way”.

It is stressful for you, and those you love, to always turn down food you don’t normally eat when you are with friends and family. Nobody likes the person who watches everyone else eat birthday cake at someone’s party. Eat the cake, just don’t eat the whole thing yourself.

Too much of anything will kill you, so here is a must see video my daughter Leah sent me, Leah has a Master of Science degree in Public Health. I hope you enjoy this, I think every person on the planet should watch it and every young student should be required to see it.  This is something people are getting way too much of. Unfortunately, most don’t know how much they are eating and what life shortening diseases it causes. Click on this link and watch this riveting video.  http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/secrets-sugar/

Do I really want to live to be 117?

When I started researching Emma Morano, my wife Shary asked how she looked.  I laughed and said, “not that great for a sixty year old, actually, she looks terrible”, but for someone who is 117 she looks awesome. Someone always says to me, “I don’t want to live that long”. Then I ask them, “If you could look and feel like a healthy seventy year old at 100? If you could live disease free for over one hundred years, then would you want to live that long?” The answer is always yes. God’s intention is for you to have life, and have it abundantly, all of your days.

Eggs keep you young.
Emma at 117 and
Emma when she was younger.

 Deuteronomy 33:25                                                                                                                                                                                                                             The bolts of your gates will be iron and bronze, and your strength will equal your days.

Deuteronomy 34:7                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Moses was a hundred and twenty years old when he died, yet his eyes were not weak nor his strength gone.

Moses lived 120 years, and right up to his death he was still healthy and strong. So if you want to live a long healthy productive life, free from physical pain and sickness, you will want to follow in the footsteps of people who have already done it. You don’t have to eat raw eggs, but you will probably have to eat some form of eggs. You will also need to limit your stress. It is OK to get yourself away from abusers, Jesus did it. Once, when the Pharisees tried to stone Jesus, he alluded the. Another time they tried to throw him off a cliff and he got away. Finally, you will have to avoid eating too much of anything, especially products containing sugar or other refined, highly processed foods. God does not want you sick anymore than you do. He loves you, and wants only the best for you, like any earthly father would.

 

Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.Matthew 5:19

 

Our purpose for writing each week is to obey Matthew 5:19, providing you with Biblical advice on the care and feeding of your body.  We do it because this advice is so rare. We also do it, because we see thousands of good Christians, whose lives have been cut short, simply because they were never taught what the Word of God and the Law of God had to say about health and wellness.

 

If you believe God knows best, join us and the Wellness Gospel team; register for our weekly newsletter, then spread the word by sharing this with your friends on social media and may God richly bless you.

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?


eggs-2

                                                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.
