Hi friends welcome to vigorphil, here general health, natural home remedies, hydrotherapy, Nutrition, and vegan recipes are discussed. You can visit our youtube channel at vigorphil, and listen to our podcast at Anchor.FM/vigorphil, or our website at vigorphil.com.

Today we will be talking about the 8 Laws of Health, these laws have been proven by science to promote health and cure many ailments, these laws are sometimes called Nature’s doctors.

8 Laws Of Health

God has certain expectations of us in terms of health. He expects us to first learn the laws of health. Laws govern the natural world around us, and there are laws central to and within our very being that we must learn in order to be healthy.

Have you ever wondered how old people would fare if it weren’t for disease and accidents? Scientists at the University of Southern California recently calculated that people could live to be 120 years old. Roy Wolford, a pioneer in the science of aging, claims that the human body can live for 120 years. The current average lifespan in the United States is 78 years.

What is preventing us from living longer heather lives? Is it possible to make changes in your life that will allow you to live a much longer, healthier life? Allow me to share the secrets of longevity and health with you so that you can live a longer, healthier, and more fulfilling life.

There are natural laws that govern our health, just as there are scientific laws that govern our world. You have the ability to take control of your health and add years to your life by making certain lifestyle choices.

Each of these eight (8) basic health laws has been scientifically proven to improve health, longevity, and overall quality of life.

God’s Desire For Humanity

 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health as thy soul prospereth."
3John 2
And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. Gen.1.29 
...and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; Gen.3.18  
"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope." Jer. 29:11 


Are you looking for a new beginning in your health? The acronym NEWSTART [Nutrition Exercise Water Sunshine Temperance Rest Air and Trust in God] is a program of God’s 8 Laws of Health.

These are God’s Natural Cure! Ellen White wrote much of what is written on God’s 8 Laws of Health – the NEW START program – Nutrition, Exercise, Water, Sunshine, Temperance, Rest, Air, and Trust in God. She wrote a lot about God’s Natural Remedies.

Most of the quotes are accompanied by a date take a look. You’ll be amazed at the light she had so early in time! She was telling people as early as 1868 that eating meat was the cause of cancer and that it was unsafe to eat!  And in 1899, she predicted that milk and dairy products would no longer be safe!

Science and doctors are only now catching up to her in terms of scientific evidence supporting her claims about the safety of meat eating, dairy products, and the rest of God’s Natural Remedies.

The “Eight (8) Laws of Health,” also known as “Nature’s Doctors,” point the way to a long and healthy life, as well as physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.

WHAT EXACTLY IS DISEASE? A disease is an attempt by nature to rid the system of conditions caused by a violation of the laws of health. In the event of illness, the cause should be determined. Unhealthy conditions should be changed, and bad habits should be broken.

Then nature is to be aided in her efforts to expel impurities and restore proper system conditions. There is no such thing as a disease. It is the lack of something—-HEALTH.

The relationship between disease and lifestyle is becoming more apparent every day. Is it any wonder so many are enjoying less than optimum health with a way of life that includes job-related tensions, financial pressures, refined foods, high fat and cholesterol diets, inadequate exercise, and rest? Let’s take a look at our eight Doctors now.


1. Nutrition In 8 Laws of Health:

Nutrition is the first of the 8 Laws of health, it stands for the letter N in the acronym NEWSTART.

Daily food choices have a significant impact on one’s health. Good nutrition is required to provide the body with all of the nutrients and fiber it requires to function optimally. Plan your meals to include nutrient-dense but low-calorie foods. The first step is to start the day with a nutritious breakfast.

It is said that this is the most important meal of the day. Unrefined grains, potatoes with skins, nuts, and fruit are all good choices. This will provide the energy required for the day’s activities. Store-bought processed foods are generally low in nutrients and high in calories.

Consume a wide range of fruits, grains, vegetables, legumes, seeds, and nuts. Avoid eating animal protein. Limit your intake of fat, sugar, and salt. Eat a nutritious breakfast, a light lunch, and a light supper. Avoid eating late at night. Allow five hours between meals instead of three. Eat at regular intervals. Keep an eye on your food combinations.

Foods that digest quickly and those that take a long time, such as fruit and vegetables, should not be combined. If possible, avoid all refined foods. The majority of the vitamins and minerals are found in the portion that is usually removed. Consume as much of the fruit’s skin as possible.

Health life and happiness are the results of obedience to physical laws governing our bodies. If our will and way are in accordance with God’s will and way if we do the pleasure of our creator he will keep the human organism in good condition and restore the moral mental and physical powers in order that he may work through us to his GLORY.

In Dan.1:5-17 – Daniel risked death by choosing to reject the king’s food and drink, but he determined to be true to God and obey the dietary requirements set out in His law. Daniel also knew that the royal diet would not be good for his health.

Instead of “choice food” Daniel asked for the pulse – plant foods such as grains, fruits, and vegetables – and instead of wine he asked for plain water. The ten-day test showed that Daniel and his friends were noticeably healthier than those who ate the king’s rich foods. Modern science has shown that the best diet for optimal health is a plant-based, high fiber, and low cholesterol diet. People who choose these foods tend to live longer, have more energy, and be more mentally alert. The key word is “defile,” which in Hebrew means just that, to “pollute, defile.” Thus, for these young men, the issue was not just healthful living or a mere personal preference, it was a moral issue as well.

Our bodies are built up from the food we eat. There is a constant breaking down of the tissues of the body; every movement of every organ involves waste, and this waste is repaired from our food. Each organ of the body requires its share of nutrition. The brain must be supplied with its portion; the bones, muscles, and nerves demand theirs. It is a wonderful process that transforms the food into blood and uses this blood to build up the varied parts of the body; but this process is going on continually, supplying with life and strength each nerve, muscle, and tissue.


In order to know what are the best foods, we must study God’s original plan for man’s diet. He who created man and who understands his needs appointed Adam his food. . . . Grains, fruits, nuts, and vegetables constitute the diet chosen for us by our Creator. {CG 380.1}

The liability to take disease is increased tenfold by meat-eating.” Counsels on Diet and Foods, pg. 386. (1868).

“The intellectual, the moral, and the physical powers are depreciated by the habitual use of flesh meats. Meat-eating deranges the system beclouds the intellect, and blunts the moral sensibilities. We say to you, dear brother and sister, your safest course is to let meat alone.” Counsels on Diet and Foods, pg. 391 (1868).

Free sugar has been shown to reduce the ability of white blood cells to function properly, to aggravate heart disease, to reduce lifespan, to contribute to alcoholism, mental illness, high blood pressure, skin disease, and enlarged liver and kidneys.” Nutrition for Vegetarians., pg. 39.

Healthy Sugars:

Barley Malt, Brown Rice Syrup, Honey, Date Sugar, Molasses, Fructose, Stevia. Nutrition is one of the 8 Laws of health.

2. Exercise In 8 Laws of Health:

Exercise is the second of the 8 Laws of health, it stands for the letter E in the acronym NEWSTART.

The body is an amazing machine that requires regular physical activity. It is one of the most effective ways to promote health. Walking is said to be the best form of exercise. Swimming, cycling, gardening, and yard work are all good forms of physical activity.

If you haven’t been very active, start slowly with a well-balanced program. This will prove to be a wise investment in your health. A sluggish body results from inactivity. Only 37% of Americans regularly engage in some form of exercise, and more than 72% are overweight.

The ancient saying “use it or lose it” applies not just to muscles and bones, but also to the heart, lungs, brains, blood vessels, joints, and every other organ in the body. Sedentism is a direct path to an earlier grave. Inactivity literally kills us.

The Value of Exercise In 8 Laws of Health

  1. Exercise makes us feel better. Life becomes more enjoyable, and the high that comes from exercise will not disappoint you later. Furthermore, the hormones that cause the workout high have been shown to enhance health.
  2. Exercising helps to strengthen the heart. This is significant in a culture where every second person dies from heart or vascular illness.
  3. Physical activity decreases blood pressure and resting heart rate, therefore preserving the heart and blood vessels.
  4. Exercise reduces LDL cholesterol levels in the blood while typically increasing HDL cholesterol, lowering heart and vascular risk. (LDL is the bad element of cholesterol, whereas HDL is the healthy part.)
  5. Exercise alleviates depression. Outdoor exercise is one of the most effective techniques for combating this prevalent and debilitating disease.
  6. Exercise strengthens bones by assisting in the retention of calcium and other minerals.
  7. Exercise aids in the maintenance of a healthy weight. It helps to build muscle and burn fat. Moderate exercise reduces hunger by briefly raising blood sugar levels.
  8. Exercise increases circulation, which leads to clearer thoughts, better sleep, and faster healing of injured body parts. What is the best type of activity

Walking is the best kind of exercise. Swimming, cycling, gardening, and yard maintenance are other enjoyable pastimes. One of the unique advantages of working out outside is that you may combine at least three health principles: sunshinefresh air, and exercise.

For the greatest effectiveness, a daily regimen of at least thirty to forty minutes is recommended. The most essential thing is that you love what you do and that you do it on a regular basis.

Precautions should be taken while exercising.

  • Begin cautiously and build up progressively.
  • It is preferable to exercise before or after a meal. meal.
  • Give yourself enough time to warm up and cool down.
  • Stop exercising and consult your doctor. If you have any of the following symptoms: Chest, teeth, jaw, neck, or arm pain, Breathing difficulties Light-headedness or fainting, Irregular heart rate that persists during exercise and recuperation Joint discomfort or edema, Excessive tiredness, Unknown cause of weight loss, Recurrent nausea or vomiting following exercise

One example is a well-balanced and well-planned workout routine. The exercise routine is one of the most prudent investments you can make is to select and set a timer for yourself every day and stick to it. Enjoy yourself and feel better every day!

In order for the brain to have clearness and strength of thought retentive memory, and mental power, the muscles of the body should have exercised a portion of each day in order to preserve and improve health.” The Health Reformer, March 1, 1873.

“Action is a law of our being. Every organ of the body has its appointed work, upon the performance of which its development and strength depend. The normal action of all the organs gives strength and vigor, while the tendency of disuse is toward decay and death.”— The Ministry of Healing,p.237

The time spent in physical exercise is not lost. . . . A proportionate exercise of all the organs and faculties of the body is essential to the best work of each. When the brain is constantly taxed while the other organs of the living machinery are inactive, there is a loss of strength, physical and mental. The physical system is robbed of its healthful tone, the mind loses its freshness and vigor, and morbid excitability is the result. {AH 494.3} Exercise is one of the 8 Laws of health.

3. Water In 8 Laws of Health:

Water in 8 Laws of Health

Water is the third of the 8 Laws of health, it stands for the letter W in the acronym NEWSTART.

Because the body is mainly water, consuming it benefits it in various ways. It improves the performance of your cognitive functions (thinking, attention and concentration, mental alertness).

Water also boosts your energy. It is a complete cleanser of the body, both inside and out. Water is essential for good health. The more weight you have, the more water your body needs. Beverages, unlike water, cannot be purified. It is critical to drink clear water between meals and very little, if any while eating. Drinking with meals dilutes gastric juice, delays digestion, and lowers stomach acidity, allowing bacteria ordinarily destroyed by strong acid to pass through alive.

 Your body is composed of around 75% water. A lot of water is required for proper operation. Every action in your body is dependent on an appropriate supply of water. Drink plenty of fresh, soft water every day. The finest water is distilled or reverses osmosis. Water cannot be replaced by juice, tea, or soft drinks.

How much water should you take?

Your weight divided by two equals the minimal amount of water to drink each day. A sufficient hydration intake will improve your endurance and energy levels. According to research, DEHYDRATION at the cellular level is the fundamental cause of many ailments.

Carry some with you to work and on hikes, etc Drink a fresh lemon squeezed into two glasses of room temperature or warm water as you wake up. Consume between meals. Not with meals, 2 hours after to 1/2 hour before. Taking two glasses of water half an hour before each meal helps to avoid mealtime thirst, assists digestion, and prevents ulcers. Shower regularly with chilly or tepid water, rubbing your skin all over with a bath brush or a nice rough washcloth. This promotes circulation and aids the body in eliminating pollutants The body requires water constantly.

Most of this water is recycled within the body itself. However, it must have a replacement of eight glasses of water per day. Cleansing waste material is a daily task for the body, not only from its own wastes, but from the constant bombardment of germs and viruses, and in today’s society, from chemicals and drugs. If the body is not thoroughly cleansed, it is forced to break down.

“Water is the best liquid possible to cleanse the tissues…. Drink some, a little time before or after a meal.”—Ellen G. White, Healthful Living, p. 226 Water is one of the 8 Laws of health.

4. Sun Light In 8 Laws of Health:

Sunlight in 8 Laws of Health

Sunlight is the fourth of the 8 Laws of health, it stands for the letter S in the acronym NEWSTART.

Although sunlight is the leading cause of skin cancer, it does offer certain advantages.

It can improve your mood and help you avoid a number of ailments.

Sunlight causes the body to create vitamin D, which lowers the risk of cardiovascular disease. Be cautious not to overexpose yourself to the sun. The sun\’s rays activate the vitamins in meals.

Sunlight destroys many bacteria while also boosting the immune system by increasing gamma globulin levels and improving the amount and efficacy of white blood cells that attack germs.

Lightly tanned skin is far more resistant to germs and diseases than untanned skin.

Many skin ailments benefit from moderate quantities of sunshine The sun offers several health advantages.

It provides natural Vitamin D and aids in cholesterol reduction.

The amount of oxygen in the blood rises when exposed to sunlight. Begin with 10-15 minutes each day for the face and hands, gradually increasing to 30-45 minutes per day. The optimum times to sunbathe are 9-10 a.m. and 4-6 p.m. Avoid being burned.

Reduce your diet of fats such as animal fats, oils, and margarine to lower your risk of skin cancer (and foods containing refined, processed oils)

Other Importance of Sunlight.

  • Sunlight enhances sleep
  • Sunlight is an efficient germ killer
  • Sunlight helps the body in the production of vitamin D
  • Sunlight enhances the immune system
  • Sunlight alleviates pain from swollen arthritic joints
  • Sunlight relieves certain symptoms of PMS
  • Sunlight lowers blood cholesterol levels.

5. TEMPERANCE In 8 Laws of Health:

Temperance in 8 Laws of Health

Temperance is the fifth of the 8 Laws of health, it stands for the letter T in the acronym NEWSTART.

In summary, temperance can be said to mean life in balance Temperance can be defined as \”moderation.\” Good things are used wisely, while bad things are avoided. Peak physical, mental, and emotional well-being is the objective of temperate living.

Temperance is more than simply the use of alcohol, cigarettes, and drugs. It applies to all parts of our lifestyle, whether they are excessive eating, excessive working, excessive play, or excessive amounts of anything. An unbalanced lifestyle deprives men and women of a full, healthy, and fulfilling existence.


Millions of people drink alcoholic beverages. Advertisements portray alcoholics as cheerful, friendly, and fun-loving. They fail to demonstrate the millions of alcoholics They neglect to include all of the car accidents, assaults, sexual abuse, murders, and suicides committed by persons who have been drinking.

Every alcoholic beverage irrevocably damages brain cells. Alcohol increases blood pressure and is harmful to the heart muscle. Alcohol is linked to an increased risk of stroke, heart failure, stomach ulcers, and cancer. One or two beers might cause coronary artery spasms, reducing oxygen delivery to the heart. Cirrhosis of the liver is frequent among alcoholics.

Alcohol depletes the body\’s supply of vitamins and minerals. Perhaps the most heartbreaking figures are those of damaged newborns who are forever impaired as a result of their parent\’s alcoholism


Despite all of the knowledge about illicit substances, their usage and misuse continue to rise. Many people start taking drugs out of curiosity, to satisfy friends, to escape reality, or to avoid dealing with difficulties. Because drugs do not cure issues, users frequently discover that instead of avoiding their problems, they wind up creating a new one – drug addiction.

Repeated use of some medications can lead to physical or psychological dependency. Someone who is addicted to a substance utilizes it to escape the disease and agony that comes with quitting. The need for the substance is frequently so intense that users may engage in risky and illegal actions in order to secure a continuous supply.

Up to 70% of offenders are jailed for drug-related offenses. Remember that preventing a drug issue is significantly easier than curing one. Get assistance if you or someone you know is addicted to drugs!


It is one of the most addictive of all human-made narcotics, killing 1200 Americans per day. “The single biggest avoidable cause of mortality in America is smoking.” (From the US Surgeon General) Tobacco is a known cause of lung cancer, but it is also a cause of many other cancers. Its blend of over 20 toxins causes sicknesses such as emphysema, stomach ulcers, heart disease, diabetes, and low birth weight kids, among other things.

Smoking is costly; it costs Americans $1 billion per week in additional health-care and insurance expenditures Simple adjustments in your lifestyle can add years, if not decades, to your life. Furthermore, your quality of life can significantly increase. Make plans today to fill the years ahead with a balanced, high-quality existence! Avoid anything that is harmful to your body. This includes liquor, drugs, tobacco, overeating, eating between meals, sugar-laden foods, strong condiments and spices, all caffeinated foods (chocolates and some sodas contain caffeine, as do coffee and tea), large combinations of foods, grease and fat, excess salt, and animal foods.

“Indulgence in eating too frequently, and in too large quantities, overtaxes the digestive organs and produces a feverish state of the system. The blood becomes impure, and then diseases of various kinds occur.”—Review and Herald, September 5, 1899, True temperance teaches us to dispense entirely with everything hurtful, and to use judiciously that which is healthful.\” The Faith I Live By, pg. 231. (Ellen White).

In order to preserve health, temperance in all things is necessary – temperance in labor, temperance in eating and drinking.\” How to Live, pg. 57. (Ellen White). Temperance is one of the 8 Laws of health.

6. Air In 8 Laws of Health:

Air In 8 Laws of Health

Air is the sixth (6th) of the 8 Laws of health, it stands for the letter A in the acronym NEWSTART.

A human can last for days without food, a few days without a drink, but just a few minutes without air. This element is required for life to exist. Without air, a person might suffer irreparable brain damage in as little as five minutes.

Why is air so vital? All of nature depends on clean air and tries to create it. While humans and animals take oxygen from the air and emit carbon dioxide, plants use carbon dioxide and emit oxygen. Balance is maintained when man lives near to nature.

Every cell requires a steady supply of oxygen. When you breathe in stale or filthy air, your oxygen supply is insufficient to maintain your cells robust and healthy. Cells die within minutes if oxygen is completely cut off. The oxygen in the air we breathe is present. Red blood cells transport oxygen from the lungs to all of the body\’s cells. Each cell needs oxygen to fuel its powerhouses. The carbon dioxide is subsequently carried back to the lungs by red blood cells. This is driven out of the body with the oxygen-deficient air when we breathe out.

Poor room ventilation can cause headaches, sleepiness, and difficulties concentrating. What\’s the reason? When air is repeatedly inhaled and rebreathed, the oxygen concentration falls while the carbon dioxide and other wastes grow. Poor air quality and breathing practices contribute to melancholy, irritation, weariness, and chronic fatigue. When you exercise, you can move up to 26 gallons of air through your lungs every minute, but at rest, you only move around 1 gallon.

Exercise increases the circulation of oxygen-rich blood cells throughout the body. Your energy level and overall well-being will increase. The Answer Let in some fresh air by opening your windows! Whenever possible, sleep with a window open. Exercising outside in the fresh air is beneficial. This will improve your lung capacity and strengthen your breathing muscles. Develop healthy postural practices. Straighten your back and shoulders. You will be able to take deeper breaths. Concentrate on taking deep breaths. Take a few calm, deep breaths many times during the day. Keep some live houseplants on hand. They eliminate numerous pollutants and utilize carbon dioxide, which they replace with oxygen.

Air Pollution

Tobacco is one of the most dangerous adversaries of free breathing. The usual air passageways get blocked and inflamed as a result of smoking. Nicotine in cigarette smoke constricts tiny arteries, whereas carbon monoxide directly interferes with the capacity of red blood cells to deliver oxygen. They work together to reduce endurance and induce artery constriction and hardening. Many smokers are unaware of the dangers that tobacco smoke poses to others. Secondhand smoke can be as dangerous as smoking itself. Children of smokers are especially vulnerable since they must breathe this lethal air for an extended period of time. Smokers who stop begin to recover nearly immediately. The most important thing you can do for your health is to break the habit and breathe freely. Some parts of the world are plagued by air pollution. If this is an issue in your city, attempt to avoid the worst concentrations. When the pollution is at its worst, avoid exercising outside.

The aroma of pine, cedar, and fir is beneficial to health. There are various different types of trees that offer therapeutic characteristics that promote health. Air is the free blessing of heaven, calculated to electrify the whole system.” (Ellen White)

“Thousands have died for want of pure water and pure air, who might have lived…These blessings they need in order to become well. If they would become enlightened, and let medicine alone and accustom themselves to outdoor exercise, and to air in their houses, summer, and winter, and use soft water for drinking and bathing purposes, they would be comparatively well and happy instead of dragging out a miserable existence.” How to Live, pg. 56. (Ellen White) Air is one of the 8 Laws of health.

7. Rest In 8 Laws of Health:

Rest in 8 Laws of Health

Rest is the seventh of the 8 Laws of health, it stands for the letter R in the acronym NEWSTART.

  • The most effective treatment for tiredness is SLEEP.
  • In order to heal, the body wants lots of rest.
  • Sleep is the most potent rejuvenator; it replenishes the strength of the muscles, nerves, and brain.
  • Sleep allows the body to mend, reenergize, and prepare for fresh action.
  • One hour of sleep before midnight is equivalent to two hours after midnight.

Sleep is not synonymous with rest. There are four forms of rest:

Physical Rest consists of sitting, lying down, or resting. Avoid eating late at night or before going to bed.

• Sensory Rest entails remaining silent and not utilizing one\’s eyes.

• Emotional Rest — a withdrawal from the ups and downs of interpersonal engagement.

• Mental Rest – a mental detachment from any intellectual demands or activities

Your Prescription:

First and foremost, obtain the sleep your body requires, at least 8 hours every day and many hours before midnight.

Second, do not overlook the importance of relaxation, such as going for morning walks, sitting in a garden or other nice settings, or by a mountain side, gazing at a forest or lake, traveling to the seashore, or reading the Scriptures.

Get enough restorative sleep. A small meal well before night, with no eating before bed will be useful.

Avoid stressful and exciting situations by taking a calm warm bath or activities before going to bed

Regular bedtime and wake-up hours will also assist. The ideal time It is between 8 and 10 p.m. to go to bed. This seems unusual since it is nearly unheard of in our culture. Sleeping appears to be in poor taste. The typical individual slept for 9 hours or more 100 years ago. Now It’s closer to 4 or 5.

Exercise during the day also contributes to a good night’s sleep.

Avoid sleeping pills since they are dangerous and provide no benefit to your health. For many, a lack of adequate sleep is the source of the ‘enervation’ that leads to illness. Healing and cleaning require a lot of rest and sleep since they can only happen when you’re sleeping

Those who have difficulties sleeping should try a cup of hops, chamomile, or catnip tea before bed. Slow, deep breathing or bathing for ten minutes in a neutral bath with a cup of Epsom salts added may be beneficial. Blot the skin dry before retiring to bed softly and silently.

“I know that from the testimonies given me from time to time, for brain workers, that sleep is worth far more before than after midnight. Two hours of good sleep before 12 o’clock is worth more than four hours after 12 o’clock…(Ellen White)

One best sleep is with the stomach practically empty. It is true that food puts one to sleep at first, by diverting blood from the head; but it disturbs sleep later. Water, unless it induces bladder action during the night, or even fruit may be taken without injury before retiring. If one goes to bed with an empty stomach, he can often get along well with six or seven hours of sleep, but if he goes to bed soon after a hearty meal, he usually needs from eight to ten hours of sleep…It has already been pointed out that sleeping outdoors is more restful than sleeping indoors.”

How to Live, pg. 120-121. (Ellen White).

8. Trust in God In 8 Laws of Health:

Trust iin God, 8 Laws of Health

Trust in God is one of the 8 Laws of health. 8. Trust In God Have faith in God, Trust in God is the eighth (8th) of the 8 Laws of health, it stands for the letter T in the acronym NEWSTART.

God is the true author of physical laws, just as He is the author of moral rules. His law is inscribed with His own finger on every nerve, muscle, and talent that man has been given.

Humans are living longer lives than ever before, but many remain dissatisfied. People nowadays are sometimes so stressed and pressurized, so full of anguish, disappointment, and hopelessness, that they are prepared to gamble their health and even their lives on nearly anything that offers comfort.

Physical sickness can result from emotional stress. Discouragement, resentment, and wrath drain your body and impair your immune system. If we bring our burdens to God, He promises to lighten them “Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you.” Psalm 55:22

In today’s world, stress is one of the leading causes of sickness and mortality. People are on high alert in preparation for an imminent emergency. Worry and dread deplete the life forces. Plenty of fresh air and strenuous exercise assists to ease tension to some extent, but only belief in the Creator\’s continual maintenance and healing ability may provide genuine and complete serenity and rest.

Positive emotions such as love, joy, faith, and trust create protective compounds that enhance and safeguard our immune systems. Peace of mind may be revitalizing and energizing. 

“A merry heart does good like a medicine: but a broken spirit dries the bones.” Proverbs 17:22

Many people who are generally healthy have a strong yearning for something greater. The need for deeper purpose and meaning in life is at the core of our existence. The perfect lifestyle comprises not just health and fitness, but also spiritual development.

Our bodies are controlled by the brain. We will be able to think clearly when our brains are not dulled by drinking, smoking, narcotics, lack of sleep, or overeating, and when we exercise and obtain fresh air and sunlight. We shall be able to make wise judgments and choose to listen to the Lord Our faith in God fills a gap in our life. It offers satisfaction and hope for the future.

Trusting God allows for His extraordinary intervention. Many individuals believe that having a relationship with God is the key to living a healthy lifestyle.

The One who created us, our Creator, not only planned and shaped us but also provided all that our living machinery requires for upkeep and development. Genuine trust in the Creator’s care will wash away concerns and worries about the future, as well as the deadening guilt of the past To be able to trust Him, we must first learn to know Him. Spend some time getting to know one another. Take some time to be still, away from the hustle and bustle of your daily life.

Investigate the deeper aspects of existence. Take a step back and consider what is genuinely important to you.

Read the Bible for some time. This is God’s personal letter to man. The Bible is recognized for its ability to sharpen our brains and provide us with new hope and direction.

“Gratitude, rejoicing, benevolence, trust in God ‘s love and care — these are health’s greatest safeguards.” My Life Today, pg. 151. (Ellen White).

“Keep your wants, your joys, your sorrows, your cares, and your fears before God… ‘The Lord is very pitiful and of tender mercy.’ James 5:11.

His heart of love is touched by our sorrows and even by our utterances of them… Nothing that in any way concerns our peace is too small for Him to notice. There is no chapter in our experience too dark for Him to read; there is no perplexity too difficult for Him to unravel. No calamity can befall the least of His children, no anxiety harass the soul, no joy, cheer, no sincere prayer escape the lips, of which our heavenly Father is unobservant, or in which He takes no immediate interest. ‘He healeth the broken in heart and bindeth up their wounds.’ Psalm 147:3.” — , Steps to Christ, p. 100 Trust in God is one of the 8 Laws of health.
