When I had my annual physical this past January, my doctor was very impressed with my blood work results. My thyroid functions were normal along with my cholesterol and blood sugar levels. My issues with pre-diabetes and high cholesterol were no longer a concern for me.
In October 2016, I started taking herbal supplements. My family and I were introduced to an herbalist from Washington state. He gave us advice about our current medical conditions and herbal remedies.
Over that next month, I didn’t eat any meat. I had stopped eating pork one month before. (See my post 5 Reasons That I Stopped Eating Pork). Shellfish was no longer a part of my diet, either. This includes shrimp, lobster, crab, oysters, clams, squid, and scallops. Having lived in Maryland for the past 11 years, crabs were always available, expensive sometimes, but available. With the exception of fish with fins and scales, everything else that lives in the water is unclean ( Leviticus 11:9-11). Many of us believe that it’s a delicacy because it tastes delicious. However, we don’t associate it with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes. Shellfish are typically bottom-dwellers that eat and carry bacteria. Think about that the next time you have shrimp cocktail or a crab cake.
In addition to not eating meat for one month, I did not eat dairy or bread. My weight has not changed, but I have lost body fat. When I saw my personal trainer 2 weeks ago, my body fat was 30 percent. Last year, it was 32 percent, so I have made progress. Under 30 percent body fat is ideal.
In conclusion, you can treat many common illnesses with a proper diet and herbs. The body can basically heal itself if it’s properly cared for. Many herbs have healing properties (Jubilees 10:12), so don’t need to go see the pharmacist. Once you start taking prescription medications, you may have to take them for the rest of your life. It is better to treat the illness now with what the earth has to offer.
