Remember the 8 Laws of Health: Nutrition, Exercise, Water, Sunlight, Temperance, Air, Rest and Trust.
Nutrition: Eat a variety of fruits, grains, vegetables, legumes, seeds, and nuts (See A Vegan Vegetarian Lifestyle). Avoid animal protein. Limit fat, sugar, and salt. Eat a good breakfast, a moderate lunch, and a light supper. Don't eat too late at night. Don't eat between meals—allow five hours between meals. Eat at regular times. Avoid refined grains. Choose foods that will build good blood.
Exercise: Only 37% of Americans regularly engage in some form of exercise, and over 72% are overweight. Walking is an excellent form of exercise and can easily be worked into one's schedule. Regular exercise provides us with stronger hearts and lungs, increases metabolism, better digestion, sound sleep, the elimination of a multitude of physical ailments, and the needed energy to handle stress calmly. Gardening too is great!
Water: As much as we need to drink water, one time that we should NOT drink water is with meals. Drinking with meals dilutes the gastric juice and slows the digestive process. The best time to drink water is between meals—20 minutes before a meal, and not until 2 hours after a meal—to obtain maximum digestion of your meal. When you are ill, drink plenty of water. This replaces any fluid lost during a fever and insures that every part of your body will function well. Distilled water is the best for flushing out toxins from the body along with lemon.
Sunlight: The sick are greatly benefited by the sun due to its healing properties. Sunlight enhances waste elimination by improving liver function; it is an effective treatment for jaundice. It relieves the kidneys of some of their burden by eliminating wastes through the skin when you sweat.
Temperance: Temperance is moderation in the things that are good and total abstinence from the things that are foul.
Air: Remember, fresh, pure air is the most vital requirement for those who are sick, as well as those who are well. Air is an indispensable healing agent. No wound will heal without air.
Rest: The sleep before midnight is when we get the most out of sleep so make sure your going to bed at a decent hour. Rest is more than sleep, its knowing when to say no when we have too much on our plate and rest when doing too much at one time.
Trust: Believe in God and trust what he brings to you.
