Inspired Healthful Living

 Why do people get sick?
Because they constantly violate the basic laws of good health.

Why do people go to the doctor?
Because with prescriptions drugs they can continue disregarding the laws of
good health and just live on without any change in their style of living.


Do prescription drugs heal the body or the mind?
No, they only cover up the symptoms, but the disorder or sickness is still present.

Are prescription drugs harmful?
None of these drugs can be taken without suffering the side effects, of which
there are many. Usually the patient will have to get more prescription drugs to
cover up the side effects of the medicine taken before. As time goes by, new
side effects (complaints) will arise which will have to be taken care of.  Eventually
after a few years, the body is so impaired from the side effects of all the
medications that more serious illnesses will manifest themselves,
such as cancer, heart disease, circulatory problems, diabetes,
strokes, high blood pressure, arthritis and others.


There is a better way
If you are willing to change your life style so as to be more in line with the eight
basic laws of health, then there is hope. With a diligent application to these basic laws,
guided by patience and powered by determination, good health is guaranteed,
provided the body is first being cleansed of all its impurities.

 
The Eight Basic Laws of Good Health

Fresh Air - Full, deep inhalations of pure air fill the lungs with oxygen and purify the blood.

Sunlight - Without warmth, air and sunshine plants would not live and flourish. How much more necessary are these conditions for our own health!

Temperance - An abstemious diet for a month or two would convince many that the path of self denial is the path to health.

Proper Rest - Find rest of spirit in the beauty and quietude and peace of nature. Get enough sleep every night so that rising in the morning does not become a struggle.

Exercise - A great help for digestion. A short walk right after a meal is a great benefit.

Nutrition - The victims of poor cookery are numbered by tens of thousands. Over many graves might be written, "Died of an abused Stomach".

Lots of Water - There are many ways in which water can be applied to relieve pain and check disease. An absolute necessity is to drink daily at least 8 eight ounce glasses of pure water (not city water).

Trust in Divine Power - We are not to let the future with its hard problems and unsatisfying prospect make our hearts faint, our knees tremble, our hands hang down. "Let him take hold of My strength," says the mighty one (God), "that he may make peace with Me."


In the following are outlined the chapters of the book "Healthful Living" which is a compilation of the various teachings upon the subjects of health, health reform, and other related matters to be found in the writings of Mrs. Ellen G. White. The work has been recognized as a veritable storehouse of seed thoughts relating to the principles of hygienic and sanitary reform. The principles presented in this work are not mere human inventions, but are a part of the divine order appointed for the human family at the beginning - to be restored when all things shall be made new.

THAN 100-YEARS AGO AND ARE UP TO DATE
