Some simple ways to stay healthy 

This is an effort to teach optimum health --wellness, as opposed to merely avoiding sickness. There are some tried and true ways to maintain your physical and mental health so that you have much energy, physical strength and mental alertness. I am writing this as a Registered Nurse who has had much education and also  as  a Christian who believes in disciplining your mind in the correct way.  Here  are my recommendations:

  • Walk about in your walkabout shoes, climb stairs, run, skip, jump rope. 
  • Eat healthy foods and simple meals--lots of fruit and vegetables and red meat 1-2 times per week.
  • Drink milk in large quantities for calcium. 
  • Use olive oil instead of other oils, and butter [calcium enriched naturally]  instead of oil-based margarines.
  • Resist snacking--if you are hungry eat real food and if not hungry, don't eat.
  • Drink clean water in  quantities of about 8 oz per hour, and avoid carbonated drinks.
  • Open the windows when weather permits and let in fresh air.
  • Drink real tea--it's good for you according to medical studies that have shown it prevents stroke.
  • Do not eat scavengers including pork, lobster, crayfish,catfish, since they sky-rocket your cholesterol.
  • F ollow the health care laws in the Bible especially the prohibition against the eating or ingesting of blood and fat. It is written, "moreoever ye shall eat no manner of blood, whether it be of fowl or beast, in any of your dwellings." [Leviticus 7: 26] and repeated several times, particularly " it shall be a perpetual statute for your generations throughout all your dwellings, that ye eat neither fat nor blood." Leviticus 3: 17 King James Holy Bible]
  • Be in a married committed relationship with the opposite sex; since that is proven by medical fact gathering and insurance companies' statistics to be the most healthy and most life -enhancing way to live. Marry young enough to have several children because they make life worthwhile and they are the greatest blessings of all.
  • WASH your hands when you come into contact with any 'germs' or viruses and wash your entire body if you are in a public place like a parade or demonstration where there are a lot of people milling about, because the spread of disease is a risk in those situations. Bathe daily or nightly whatever the case, but more than once a day  if you were exposed to coughing, sneezing, sickly environments.
  • Do NOT eat blood or fat in accordance with the commandment of GOD in Leviticus 3:17; and do not eat pork or scavenger foods in accordance with the health laws in Leviticus chapter 11.
  • Avoid junk foods like potato chips, and "empty calories" with almost no nutritional value. 
  • Exercise the weight off, if overweight,with many benefits: heart strengthening, endurance building.
  • Women should avoid sex when their period is on because the presence of blood is an excellent medium for bacteria to grow, thus making one more prone to infection at that time. 
  • When you are stressed, write in a journal, pray and meditate on a plan instead of worrying.
  • Take only aspirin for relief of any physical ailments--avoid habit-forming drugs, and drugs that alter your mind. Don't let your kids see you take even an aspirin to avoid programming them to drugs-as-solution.
  • Laugh a great "big belly laugh"--it lowers your blood pressure and destresses you instantly.
  • Tak to your family about almost everything--it builds and strengthens the "ties that bind." 
  • Eat meals with your family and children as often as possible, make them social events.
  • Pray daily, acknowledging that there is a GOD and it is not you! That keeps you in proper mindset.
  • Include the fish the Bible allows in your diet for the Omega 3 oils from them that are heart healthy.
  • Cry when you feel overwhelmed --think of it as the safety valve on the "pressure cooker" of life.
  • Have babies! They are good for you in many ways: much less risk of cervical or breast cancer.
  • Enjoy sex with your husband or wife only; avoid adultery and fornication--it causes so much misery and suffering.
  • Give and get hugs often, and enjoy snuggling with your husband or wife intimately; and with your children in non-intimate ways [exception is breast feeding is intimate and positive for mother and baby.] Healthy physical contact in appropriate relationships has many benefits.
  • Do not be sexually active before marriage. Sexually transmitted diseases have ruined many women's chances  of having children and even caused deaths. Promiscuous lifestyles are detrimental to you in many ways,and cause women especially to feel used and discarded, not valuable, not loveable. Avoid fornication.
  • Allow yourself to need others, to interact with them, talk to them, need to be in their presence.
  • Allow yourself to be dependent on your spouse, forsake too much "independence" --it destroys relationships. Men need to be needed and they need to be heroes so let them. 
  • Attend Church that teaches from the Bible because it will reprogram you from a secular godless existence to  an awareness of the Majesty and power and LOVE of God, and that will make your life much, much better.
  • Have wholesome hobbies, like creating art, writing poetry, writing, baking, walking,reading.
  • ENJOY your children!
  • Swim as often as you have opportunity--it is one of the healthiest things you are able to do --it strengthens your heart, your abdominal muscles, your behind, your legs, increases your lung capacity, energizes you.
  • Read your Bible for guidance --get a concordance if you need one to find verses for your problem. I love the King James Holy Bible and I recommend it for several reasons: the language is precise and poetic, and it is absolute and unwavering on the issues of human sin and what is necessary to be saved from it.
  • IF you should feel yourself "coming down with something" get more sleep, take Vitamin C, drink tons of water, but not all at once, of course.
  • Breast feed your babies, ensuring much much less risk of breast cancer for yourself.
  • Use real salt not the silicone added variety.
  • Avoid canned foods loaded with sugar. Many foods are not enhanced by sugar so read the labels. If sugar is  added in ,and it is not a food that needs sugar to be palatable, then buy a different brand. 
  • Avoid endless hours of TV watching. Some studies have raised the concern that such mindless activity lowers IQ. 
  • Use your brain, make it work, think through complex questions and mental challenges.This is proved to be the way to maintain the ability to think. Read on many topics.
  • Keep your mind pure. Avoid horror movies, and movies that stress you, so you do not think on evil.  
  • Sleep every night  for 7-8 hours, set regular bedtimes so family sleeps too.
  • Add moisturizers to your bath water and to your face. A  plastic surgeon I once worked with,  told me that is the best and simplest way to look fresh and younger longer.  
  • Allow times of quiet without noise or activity. 
  • Nap when needed to prevent exhaustion.
  • Do not drink any alcoholic beverages;  and avoid all forms of sweet "mixed" with alcohol drinks also.
  • Do something good for others, instead of focusing always on yourself. 
  • Do not smoke or chew any form of tobacco, or snuff, or smokeless tobacco. Tobacco in any form contains chemicals that cause cancer, and is addicting, leading to ever progressing disease and death.
  •  Vote prolife because GOD is not mocked according to Galatians 6:7. If you vote for life, then you are sort of registering with GOD if you want to think of it that way as wanting life for yourself and your children.
