Health can be an extremely frustrating and complicated world. Although there are health products that have value, we believe that God has called us to a life of simplicity and faith. Removing toxic food from your diet and increasing fresh, raw fruits and vegetables will have a greater impact on your health than any product. And, fresh, raw fruit and vegetable juices are filled with every essential element the body needs to heal.
Herbal remedies have been used effectively for medicinal purposes for thousands of years. Forty-percent of our present-day medicines are synthetic reproductions of natural substances. If you analyze medicinal herbs, you will find only small amounts of nutrients. The active ingredients are alkaloids or organic compounds that alter the metabolism of the body. God has created herbs to help man heal.
Herbs affect the body in the same manner as medicines. For example, ASA, more commonly known as Aspirin, was synthesized from the natural pain-relieving compound found in White Willow bark, which is a natural medicine that has been used for a thousand years.
Herbs have a therapeutic effect because they either adjust the body’s healing mechanism or stimulate a cleansing reaction. Herbs often have a specific effect that can benefit kidneys, liver, thyroid or various organs.
Herbs work in alignment with the body, rarely causing side effects. Chemical medicines ignore the body’s natural balance, often resulting in side effects and depositing toxic chemicals that can stay lodged in the tissues for years, causing deterioration of cell metabolism. Medicines are notorious for their side effects, stimulating healing in one area of the body while having a negative effect on the whole system. They work in opposition to the way God intended us to heal.
Chemotherapy is a clear example of this. Powerful chemicals and radiation destroy the cancer, and, for a time, the cancer goes into remission. Unfortunately, the immune system is harmed and often the cancer returns to run unchecked through a defenseless body.
No herb or medicine can compensate for a continual ingestion of dead, toxic, mucus-forming food. Vitamins, minerals, herbs, enzymes, antioxidants, ginseng, lecithin, herbal teas, magnetic therapy any of these products are going to impact a body that is groaning under the weight of a toxic, nutrient-deficient diet. As your diet improves, these health products will have less of an effect on a body that is being saturated with life-giving, nutrient-rich fuel. After health returns, a simple diet, high in raw food, will supply all your nutritional needs.
In our opinion, here are some of the best natural products that can assist in healing. They can be used safely during a juice fast or as part of a healing diet.
