Health Education

There are many people in our area who struggle with health related issues.  many of the afflictions from which we suffer rob us of our viality and quality of life.  Society today would have you believe that the secret to good health is found in a miracle pill, or the latest fad diet, or the latest exercise program, or through meditation, or some other gimmick by which someone has developed.  There is no "quick fix" that is lasting.  Permanent results require lifestyle changes.  God's plan is best!  After all, He did create us!

The Bible is filled with guidelines for healthy living.  Seventh-day Adventists have been educating others with a health message centered around biblical health principles since 1863.  This message includes many facets to promote oveall health:  physically, mentally, spiritually, and socially.  Everyone can obtain positive health benefits from following biblical health guidelines found throughout scripture.  Total health and wellness programs based upon eight fundamental lifestyle principles are proven to help you achieve optimum health.  For total wellness your body needs plenty of fresh air, water, sunlight, exercise, rest, proper nutrition, temperance, and trust in God.

You can help prevent, or even reverse disease through natural methods.  Of course, you should always consult with your physician whenever undertaking any type of changes in lifestyle.  A healthy lifestyle can help you accomplish the following:

           *  Relieve Arthritis
           *  Reverse Type II Diabetes
           *  Reverse Heart Disease
           *  Renew Immune System
           *  Reduce Neuropathy
           *  Overcome Depression
           *  Shed Pounds
           *  Increase Energy
           *  Lower Cholesterol & Triglycerides
           *  Enhance Vitality
           *  Reduce Stress

The Bible says that our body is the temple of God.  It needs to be treated as such.  We know that plant-based diets are healthier than meat-based diets.  Having a social network that reinforces the right behavior builds Christ-like characters and overcome addictive behaviors, and Sabbath rest allows members to decompress the stress of everyday life.  God has provided natural remedies for many conditions, where the only side effect is a healthier you.
