He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herbs for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth…Psalm 104:14
Hello again, friends.
Last month I stated that I would continue talking about natural methods of healing using plants and herbs, and mentioned the late Dr. John R. Christopher, master herbalist, a man with a mission to cure the sick with God’s natural methods. One of the things he stated in his writings and teachings was, “There are no incurable diseases, but there are incurable people.”
Here are a few of the types of people who do not get well, regardless of what type of program they go on:
1. The individual who is a hypochondriac. This type of person may be frightfully ill, but they are getting “sick” attention from their illness.
This person will not follow advice that will help him.
It is a total waste of time to talk to these people about getting well. They don’t want to.
2. The individual whose “time has come.” Everything moves in its time and season.
We cannot dispute this, because when our job is done here on earth, and we have done what we came to earth to do, God says, “It’s your time.”
3. The lazy individual. They just can’t seem to follow a program; they leave the herbs on the shelf. These people are dabblers.
They have more important things to do, even though their life is in danger. Everything is more important than getting well.
For all you folks out there who are interested in getting well and those of you who would like to know how to start, here are a few tips on becoming and staying healthy:
1. Buy a juicer and drink fresh, raw, organic enzyme-filled juices. These juices, such as carrot and apple combinations, are jammed full of nutrients which release into the body and have the ability to heal.
Also, eat as much fresh, raw organic food as possible.
2. Have daily exposure to sun and walking in nature. Another good habit is walking for daily exercise, which reduces blood pressure and helps control cholesterol.
Walk barefoot! Gardening is an excellent alternative, providing the individual with fresh food.
3. Do personal cleansing. Use only natural soaps, shampoos and toothpastes. Wear only natural fiber, cotton, wool and silk.
4. Learn to take a nap!
One of the most important aspects in keeping healthy is by building the immune system. Echinacea (tops and roots) is one of the best herbs to use to super boost the immune system.
This herb is a flower that is also known as purple coneflower. Based on extensive research in Germany over the past 50 years, extracts, tinctures, ointments, salves and other preparations of this flower are used as nonspecific stimulants to the immune system.
I will discuss this flower herb in the next issue.
I hope that this time spent with me has been enjoyable as well as informative. Until next time …
