WHAT EXACTLY ARE HEALTH TIPS?
In this section you will find answers that will give you a sound, scientifically based approach to support your quest for Divine Health according to the Word of GOD. Everyone has, from early childhood, acquired a belief set based upon how you were raised and influenced by your circle of peers, family, and friends relative to how you were taught to handle periods of sickness or disease.
Almost everyone has a built-in bias and preference toward using Medicine as their first choice when symptoms of sickness appear, however, not so long ago home remedies were commonly used to support dis-ease until the body could address a given issue on its own. Natural remedies like Echinacea, Goldenseal, Nettles, drawing salve, even kerosene mixed with honey was used and Homeopathic Remedies were a part of the medical arsenal. How did we survive and has modern medicine really improved our quality of life? Arguably, not as much as sanitation and hygiene.
According to Julian Whitaker, M.D., Dr. Whitaker’s Guide to Natural Healing, p. 11, “each year, more Americans die after taking prescription drugs than died in the entire Vietnam War”. Well that’s not very encouraging! Julian Whitaker, M.D., Dr. Whitaker’s Guide to Natural Healing, p. xi, also indicates that the “Office of Technology of the United States Government reported several years ago that 80% of conventional medical therapies have no basis in science, yet generates over a trillion dollars a year with writing prescriptions, performing invasive diagnostics, unwarranted and dangerous surgeries.” And according to The Burton Goldberg Group in Alternative Medicine-The Definitive Guide even Surgeon General C. Everett Koop, MD estimates that out of 2.1 million deaths a year in the U.S., 1.6 million are related to poor nutrition.
Why aren’t we listening? And what choices do we really have? Since God built into us the mechanisms to self-cure all diseases it just seems logical to explore that arena by looking at what science describes as mechanisms and giving the body what it needs to activate those mechanisms with support from the Word of God. Modern Medicine has a lot to offer relative to crisis care and sickness management, but, in my opinion, not so much about health-care! Health Tips is designed to inform and offer health-related choices, not replace Medicine!
