Stay with God and read that Bible. If you want to release even more stress, go outside and run as fast as you can until you can barely stand up anymore. Drink lots of water as well. it carries many many health benefits, and it's very affordable. Remember Jesus Christ is with us always

"Thank God for life-saving drugs but it's usually unhealthy habits, foods, toxins, and environment that result in the need for such drugs -- drugs which often have known and unknown/untold harmful effects. "

This is so true!!

It's not just how much Calcium, but where you get it from and how you absorb it and it's synergy with other minerals.
I struggle mightily almost daily explaining to people to focus not on RDA's but on the bio chemical reaction re food.
I took my 11 year old daughter for a wellness (when I was younger they were called physicals) visit the other day and when the doctor got around to discussing diet with my daughter, about 75% of what she said was wrong.
I did not even bother to try and correct her, it was not going to go anywhere. As a society we are getting better, but still have a long way to go when it comes to clarifying and understanding what a good diet really is in both Canada and the USA, not to mention most of the rest of the world.

For years I've been planning to add this forum, so here it is, and here's my simple intro.

Doctors are not evil, but the best doctors are those who have a thorough understanding of the human body and nutrition and environment and activity, and how God designed it all to work together. Unfortunately the medical practice and the medical schools today are funded by the pharmaceutical companies which profit from bad health, not from good health and prevention. Thank God for life-saving drugs but it's usually unhealthy habits, foods, toxins, and environment that result in the need for such drugs -- drugs which often have known and unknown/untold harmful effects.

Good eating, good sleep, and good physical activity are the foundation of good health, and you know what they say about an ounce of prevention.

Almost everyone -- including myself -- is guilty of being a poor steward of our health in one of those respects (diet, rest, or activity). Fortunately, God has designed the body with tremendous self-healing capability -- even in this fallen world in its cursed state -- if we allow it to do it's maintenance with those three things. So a lot of the results of unhealthy living can be reversed with proper health habits.

There are also some very effective natural remedies for various ailments, which you may not get from the doctor and certainly not from the drug companies -- since they can't be patented and profited from. Hence, this forum. :)
