IS NUTRITIONAL BALANCING ‘NEW AGE’, SATANISM OR DEVIL WORSHIP?

Some people inform me that nutritional balancing science is very “New Age” and, in fact, it is devil worship or even satanic. This article addresses the important questions of what is satanism and New Age?
What is satanism? To me, this can mean any of the following:
1. The worship of satan, a fallen angel, or the devil, which is similar if not the same thing. There are societies and perhaps religions that do this, whether openly or secretly.
2. Something that is put forth as being of God, but, in fact, it is the opposite. For example, if a church or an organization claims to be Christian, but they rape men and women, I consider this satanic. In other words, it is put forth as one thing, but it is the opposite.
3. Anything that is anti-Christian, anti-Christ or against Jesus, meaning to mock Christ or Jesus. The definition above would fit with this, as it is mockery to claim one is Christian and then rape people, something that is strictly forbidden in the bible.
Nutritional balancing does not fall into any of these categories, so I don’t see how it could be considered satanic in the least.
What is meant by New Age? To me, New Age means a sort of religion, although its members may not see it as a religion. It is opposed to Christianity, does not endorse the bible and the Ten Commandments, for example, and instead is more like an older pagan, earth-based religion. It is often associated with the environmental movement, for example, and is usually associated with anti-capitalist sentiments, socialist leanings, and a sort of selfish ‘me generation’ approach to life.
It is also a more magical religion, as were most older pagan religions. That is, it usually involves the use of certain affirmations, amulets, music and other methods to invoke the power of the universe for your own purposes. This is quite the opposite of the biblical approach of “Thy will be done” and following the Ten Commandments, for example, in order to succeed and prosper in this life.
Some people associate holistic healing with the New Age movement, and it is true that some holistic healers embrace the above philosophy. However, I feel this is unfortunate, since holistic systems of healing, including nutritional balancing science, are often just basic healing sciences. Sadly, the conventional medical profession abandoned natural healing methods some 90 years ago in America, thanks to the influence of the drug industry, the AMA, and other forces that still control medical care today in as a cartel in most developed nations of the world. This is explained in detail in several articles on this website such as Why Double-Digit Inflation Of Health Care Costs and others.
