All through the Bible we see that health is a gift of God. As a Pastoral Counselor, Bible based Natural Health Practitioner and a Certified Health Coach, I very much appreciate God’s provision of health and healing for the body and soul: It truly is miraculous.
Most Illness Originates in Your Emotions
Even secular statistics tell us that 50 – 80% of all physical illness originates in the emotions (soul). Accordingly, secular medical doctors are decidedly disadvantaged. Even if secular medical physicians are aware that illness is usually associated with thoughts and emotions (soul), few are aware of the profound influence that a sick spirit or soul has on the body.
Spiritual issues can be directly linked to physical illness. In this arena secular physicians can treat the physical symptoms but they ignorethe source of the problem. The root cause of the sickness or disease is then often left unattended causing the sickness or disease to return at a later date.
Because they lack this understanding, and the power of God, secular physicians will often hastily resort to drastic physical measures including utilizing procedures, radiation and synthetic chemicals that are foreign, and even adverse, to the body and soul. Even then, often only the symptoms are addressed rather than the actual healing of the underlying root problem.
Understanding Root Causes Helps You To Work Toward a Healthy Body
Every situation is different. However even if a natural approach to health is taken (yet fails to address the spirit and soul from a Biblical perspective) it can still neglect the root cause of the issue, even if the symptoms are relieved. This has the potential of leaving the root cause of the problem behind, allowing it to resurface causing more dis-ease.
Environmental Factors Influence Health and Healing
Today’s living environment (interior and exterior) is toxic to the human body. God did not create us to live with tainted air, food, water and other environmental pollutants that exist all around us in the world today. When oppression or individual stressors are added, maintaining good physical health can become challenging. All of these things should be considered when supporting your physical body.
Natural Health in the Bible
God clearly created healthy foods, natural herbs, oils and other techniques to support the human body that He created. There are over 600 references to herbs and / or oils in the Bible, that God created, to help keep us healthy in spirit, soul and body; here are only a few.
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 food.
2 Kings 20:7
And Isaiah said, Take a lump of figs. And they took and laid it on the boil, and he recovered.
And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.
1 Timothy 5:23
Drink water no longer exclusively, but use a little wine for the sake of your stomach and your frequent illnesses.
Maintaining Healing and Health
We have had several instances in our meetings where God and sovereignly reached out and physically healed someone. Even when that happens it is important to remember to not test God. Sickness or injury could have been facilitated by a number of factors such as excess weight, poor diet, stress, etc. We want to see you achieve and maintain good health.
God Did Not Leave You Alone
When creating a health and healing plan, all of these various aspects should be considered.
The Bible is the best health book ever written. Praise God He truly has provided the way and shown us all how to be set free from oppression in spirit, soul AND body.
