8 LAWS OF HEALTH
Each organ of the body requires its share of nutrition. In order to maintain health, a sufficient supply of good, nourishing food is needed. In order to make a good quality of blood, we must have the right kind of food, prepared in a right manner. (Try 2 meals pers day) Breakfast the heaviest meal and dinner the lightest. Nothing in between except water. 4-5 hours between each meal.
Daily physical exercise is necessary to the enjoyment of health. Neglecting to exercise the entire body, or a portion of it, will bring on morbid conditions. Inaction of any of the organs of the body will be followed by a decrease in size and strength of the muscles, and will cause the blood to flow sluggishly through the blood-vessels.
Water is the best liquid possible to cleanse the tissues. Water is necessary to life, and Christ uses it as an emblem of salvation. (At least ½ gallon per day) Not with meals - 30 minutes before or 2 hours after.
The sun is God's doctor, which brings health and strength, purifying and giving color to the blood, and we must have it. (Raises and lowers cholesterol, sugar and pressure according to the body’s need)
True temperance teaches us to dispense entirely with everything hurtful, and to use judiciously that which is healthful. Strict temperance in eating and drinking is highly essential for the healthy preservation and vigorous exercise of all the functions of the body.
The strength of the system is, in a great degree, dependent upon the amount of fresh air breathed. The breathing of pure air is essential for physical health.
(Every hour of sleep before midnight is equivalent to 2 hours of sleep) Since the work of building up the body takes place during the hours of rest, it is essential, especially in youth, that sleep should be regular and abundant. Sleep, nature's sweet restorer, invigorates the weary body and prepares it for the next day's duties.
Trust in GOD
Faith is trusting God--believing that He loves us and knows best what is for our good. Faith in God is essential for health. In order to have perfect health, our hearts must be filled with love and hope and joy in the Lord.
