Over the years, my many annoying health problems; IBS, Duodenal ulcer, Rosacea, Ovarian cysts, Endometriosis, Interstitial cystitis (which I have to say was the worst), Intestinal thrush and finally Ceoliac disease, have all taught me the true meaning of ‘Prevention is better than cure’, and yes, this saying is so true! I know it’s taken me a long time to figure this out, but when I was younger I thought I could handle whatever life threw at me. How naive I was! EMOTIONAL STRESS and not EATING properly in a calm environment soon took its toll on me, in many ways.
I found that as soon as I got rid of one health problem another would arise. Doctors just wanted to give me medication without a proper explanation of why inflammation appeared to be moving around my body. So I became determined NOT to take any more pharmaceutical drugs for every single ailment that came along, and I started looking at ways in which I could heal my body naturally, the God-given way.
As I began studying the foods in the Bible, the LORD JESUS CHRIST opened my eyes and understanding to real wholesome fresh foods, which nourish and sustain us. But we have become accustomed to eating man-made processed packaged foods that are far from what God had intended for us. These foods contain chemicals, are high in salt, sugar and fat, and will evenually make us sick.
Through His word, He also showed me to forgive and let go of past hurts, guilt, stress, and worry, because negative thinking definitely has a detrimental affect on health and well-being. These are the scriptures that I held onto:
It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man. – Psalms 118:8
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. – Proverbs 3:5-6
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. – Phillipians 4:13
Praise God! My body has now healed from all my previous health problems, apart from Coeliac disease, which is ok as long as I stick to a gluten-free diet.
So, with all this in mind and a deep desire and passion to help people, my husband and I will be putting together (Lord willing!) one page, ‘FIRST’ leaflets to:
- help people who are suffering from specific illnesses or
- to help people who want to do all they physically can to prevent a health issue from happening in the first place.
Of course, the best thing as always we can do, is bring everything to the Lord in prayer – He’s the Great Physician at the end of the day, and will guide us into all Truth.

God Bless and good health to you all 😊
