The Old and New Testaments of the Bible offers many health lessons. This article just mentions a few that are particularly valuable today.
1. The Kosher laws. These have to do with diet, food preparation and slaughtering animals. They are extensive, and all are not needed today, in my view. For example, some are designed for a time when cleanliness was rare in the world.
Most important are to avoid all pig products, not to mix milk and meat at the same meal (2 protein foods), don’t refreeze meat, avoid all shellfish, avoid eating algae, and wash food and your hands thoroughly before eating. For more, please read the Kosher Laws on this site.
2. Homosexuality. This is not recommended.
3. Abortion. This is not recommended.
4. Marriage. This is helpful for health for many people. It is usually much better than living with someone out of wedlock.
6. Dependence on God. Realizing that one is totally dependent upon the Father for life is helpful for healing. Learning to turn over one’s problems to God, and to use prayer to help one’s health, are also excellent.
7. Merkabah science. This is in the Old Testament. Developing the merkabah, which occurs with a nutritional balancing program, will help protect and heal the body in a powerful way.
8. Morality. The Bible urges people to live in a very moral fashion. This is most helpful for one’s health.
9. Bring Heaven to earth. This is the pushing down exercise, as the idea is expressed in the Bible. It is amazingly powerful for healing if one continues it for a number of years with a nutritional balancing program.
10. Care for the body. The body is the temple of the living God, and we are admonished to take care of this great gift.
11. Truth. The Bible urges us to “know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” This is definitely the case in the realm of health care. There is much to learn. This website is a good start for this learning.
12. Forgiveness. The Bible emphasizes the great need we all have for forgiveness, and to forgive others. This is one of the most important acts to improve one’s health.
