Dietetic Suggestions

EAT your bread with gladness.

Do not eat a morsel between meals.

Make simple foods your first choice.

“A merry heart doeth good like a medicine.”

Talk courage, and you will soon feel courageous.

Food must be well relished in order to be well digested.

A low-protein diet is the least likely to cause autointoxication.

Use cane-sugar in moderation. Sweet fruits and honey are natural sweets.

Give preference to the dry, toasted foods. The less fluid taken at meal-time, the better.

When possible, endeavor to eat some raw foods daily in the form of fruits, nuts, or salads.

Worry kills. Hope inspires. God, who made us, is willing to take care of us. Cheer up.

One well-prepared dish, eaten with bread and some fruit or vegetable, is ordinarily sufficient.

Drink a glass of water on rising and retiring, an hour before each meal, and one to three hours after eating.

Deep breathing improves the digestion. Practice it frequently during the day. More die of air starvation than of food starvation.

It is better to eat only two meals a day. If supper is taken, let it consist chiefly of fruit or rice or some of the cereal flakes.

Use salt sparingly. Condiments should be wholly discarded, because they irritate the stomach, tending to produce gastric and intestinal catarrh.

Fletcherize. Chew your food as long as it will remain in your mouth. “If you taste your food before you swallow it, you will not have to taste it afterward.”— Life Boat.

Fresh fruits

The Four Major Warning Signs of Eating Insufficient Quantities of Fresh Fruit
1. If you ever crave sweets at the end of any meal, you have undereaten of sufficient sweetness from fresh fruit at the beginning of that meal. 2. If you ever desire heavy foods (avocado, nuts, seeds, etc.) at the end of a meal, you have undereaten of sufficient sweetness from fresh fruit at the beginning of that meal. 3 If at any time of day you wish to consume refined sugars such as candy, alcohol, chocolate, cakes, or dried fruit, you have undereaten of sufficient sweetness from fresh fruit at the preceding meal. 4. If at any time you are willing to even consider starchy foods (bread, rice, potatoes, corn, pasta, etc) as a source of sustenance, you have undereaten of sufficient sweetness from fresh fruit at the preceding meal. The solution, in all four instances, is to eat fresh fruit. Learn from your experiences. Eat sufficiently of fresh fruit and all food cravings will cease. OF course, continue to eat all the fresh tender greens that you care for, as well. by Dr. Doug Graham

Trust in Divine Power

The key to the basic eight natural doctors of health is a well balanced, common sense outlook on life.
We need to have a complete health program and although we can make choices to follow the healthy lifestyle, we still have weakness that often end up in us falling so many times, right back to where we have to start all over again. We need to come to realize that we do have weaknesses and if only we had something or someone to lean on to give strength through our problems and give us the power to overcome the fall downs. Certainly we do have friends that we can talk to for encouragement, but we need to remember that every one of us are in this together and all are struggling with our weak areas.
There is One with power that we can lean on, One who is interested in our health. That power comes from the compassionate Creator of the Universe, the One whose interest is in every individual´s personal health. The well proven pages of the Scriptures, that have stood the test of time, bring out good healthy principles. "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth". 3 John 2.
Now, one may reason that this old stuff is for centuries past and turn away, but we need to stop and think awhile. Doctors and modern science are finding in research that good health is more than just physical and mental, but adding the dimension of spiritual health as well. The facts and figures that are lining up exactly with the Scripture principles.
A good diet allows us to think more clearly. A clear mind helps us to make good choices and to have clear spiritual, pure thoughts. Good pure minds keep the body trim, copleting the circle of wanting good NUTRITION, EXERCISE, WATER, SUNSHINE, TEMPERANCE, AIR, REST, and will increase our Trust in Divine Popwer.

"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28
