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. :)

Very nicely said. I llllllove all kinds of herbs, my hair is so thick people thick it's fake, it is not. One of the things that will bring your color back, I hope to some it does to me is Tyrosine 500 mg. If you have grey hair you will start seeing it turn back to your natural color at the roots, and fast. EVeryone is different and some medications could effect or counter effect the herbs. Herbs are very powerfull. There are labelings on prescriptions that say do not take with herbs, some do because of it causing a stronger reaction, or a weakening of the prescribed med. Although you could have 100 bottles of every herb, and the best of vitamins. The one thing that ensures and guarantees having health is the word of God. " A joyfull heart worketh as medicine, laughter, known to produce good endorphins for a healthy balance, but a broken spirit drieth the bones, where the blood cells are made. I love the word for it is like a prescription. Sleep is a blessings, and it restores us, renews our nerves. We mustn't rely only on health things, but the word is the main priority of health. :)
My hair is falling out and thinning. I don't want to see a doctor. I would rather seek nutritional help and trust God.

Try essential oils rosemary, cypress and geranium. They have to be by Young Living or Doterra.
Also try putting castor oil in your hair.
Get ALL the processed foods out of your diet.
You will see a difference.

Also, (all raw and organic) lavander, olive oil, flax seed, nettle, dandelion, and aloe vera gel help.

Organic farm to food is best. A little more expensive, but less costly than modern medical science treatments.

Stock up on farmer's market certified organics (getting to know local producers), or join a club growing your specialty, use or dehydrate or can up, and most importantly eat all that preserved food!

My 6' tall and wide Rosemary bush is becoming popular. So is our very assorted herb garden with tarragon, oregano, thyme, mint, asparagus, etc. that draws attention from local police. Asparagus looks like mariguana. I've been teaching them how to benefit from all the herbs.

I'm now helping to reverse some dementia diseases like Althemizers with herbs that are definitely turning back the years. Of course, few hospice nurses will acknowledge those, but they are working to back patients up a stage and two. That's a lot less Depends and frustration.

Just getting patients back on old fashioned "comfort foods" is often enough to make a difference, though we have to watch weight gain.

I'm pushing Lion's Mane mushroom extract, which is having a dramatic effect on memory recovery. That can backfire to really bad suppressed memories, so caution is advised.
