If you had the opportunity to know your health condition right now for free, would you take advantage of the opportunity ? We will come back to this in a few paragraphs. The link to the free health exam will be at the bottom of this page. How important is your health to you ? Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired ? Not everyone has the time or the means to regularly visit a doctor and get a complete and thorough checkup. Even doctors themselves are quite often sick and in need of quality medical attention too. Indeed, at the present time, many doctors are still lacking education about diet and nutrition. Nearly 25 years ago the National Academy of Sciences published a report indicating that medical schools provided inadequate instruction about nutrition and today it has been found that not much has changed in terms of better training in this area.

The physician who is a true Christian has access to the God of Daniel. Through divine grace and power, he may become as efficient in his calling as Daniel was in his exalted position. But it is a mistake to make a scientific preparation the all-important thing, while religious principles that lie at the very foundation of a successful practice are neglected. Many are lauded as skilful men in their profession, who scorn the thought that they need to rely upon Jesus for wisdom in their work. But if these men who trust in their knowledge of science were illuminated by the light of heaven, to how much greater excellence might they attain! How much stronger would be their powers, with how much greater confidence could they undertake difficult cases! The person who is closely connected with the great Physician of soul and body, has the resources of heaven and earth at his or her command, and he or she can work with a wisdom, an unerring precision, that the godless man or woman cannot possess.

The physician needs more than human wisdom and power that he may know how to minister to the many perplexing cases of disease of the mind and heart with which he is called to deal. If he is ignorant of the power of divine grace, he cannot help the afflicted one, but may aggravate the difficulty; but if he has a firm hold upon God, he will be able to help the diseased, distracted mind.

When physicians understand physiology in its truest sense, their use of drugs will be very much less, and finally they will cease to use them at all. The physician who depends upon drug medication in his practise shows that he does not understand the delicate machinery of the human organism. It should be the work of the God-fearing physician to guide the mind of patients to right principles. It is labor lost to teach people to look to God as a healer of their infirmities, unless they are taught also to lay aside unhealthful practices. In order to receive His blessing in answer to prayer, they must cease to do evil and learn to do well. Their surroundings must be sanitary, their habits of life correct. They must live in harmony with the laws of God, both natural and spiritual.

What counsel does the Bible give regarding health ?

And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. (Revelation 14:6,7)

As we zero in on the health message in these words - "give glory to Him", we find that it is a part of the gospel...indeed the "everlasting gospel."

How does the Bible teach that human beings should give glory to God ?

What ? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own ? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's. (1 Corinthians 6:19,20)

Education in health principles was never more needed than now. Notwithstanding the wonderful progress in so many lines relating to the comforts and conveniences of life, even to sanitary matters and to the treatment of disease, the decline in physical vigor and power of endurance is alarming. It demands the attention of all who have at heart the well-being of their fellow men.

The physician who endeavors to enlighten his patients as to the nature and causes of their maladies and to teach them how to avoid disease, may have uphill work; but if he is a conscientious reformer, he will talk plainly of the ruinous effects of self-indulgence in eating, drinking, and dressing, of the overtaxation of the vital forces that has brought his patients where they are. He will not increase the evil by administering drugs till exhausted nature gives up the struggle, but will teach the patients how to form correct habits, and to aid nature in her work of restoration by a wise use of her own simple remedies.

Here are some encouraging words of life from the Bible revealing God's tender care and love for human beings... and especially His concern for our spiritual and physical health...

Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. (3 John 1:2)

Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities ; who healeth all thy diseases; (Psalms 103:2,3)
