Prayer and Stewardship

After a three part series on powerful prayer, some may wonder:

“If prayer focusing on God’s grace is THE ultimate element in seeing healing manifest, where does nutrition and lifestyle fit in?  The answer is that prayer and stewardship are a continuum in health.

Prayer, indeed intimacy with God, is THE basis for both obtaining and keeping one’s healing.  God is NOT an “indian giver” but He cares about the details of our lives–and will guide us through each move we make.

God is a good father. He wants to carry us forward in health and joy. He's not merely interested in our obtaining our healing. He is our guide for keeping it.

God is a good father. He wants to carry us forward in health and joy. He’s not merely interested in our obtaining our healing. He is our guide for keeping it.

Of course continued intimacy with the Lord is essential because He IS our health as He assured and proved to the Israelites as literally millions of them left Egypt completely healthy regardless of age and a difficult history as overworked slaves.   Stewardship of our blessings is, actually, yet another form of worship–of praising and thanking the Lord for creating these amazing physical bodies and enmeshing body and soul perfectly for our enjoyment.

Whenever nutrition and lifestyle change is the topic of discussion, many folks dread the thought. They think of the uncomfortable bondage of “diets” and struggling to avoid unhealthy food or habits using their own willpower.    Christians often overlook that self-control or temperance is a fruit of the indwelling Holy Spirit and a free gift (Gal 5:22,23).   Being in a close personal relationship with a loving, holy God changes our “want to” so that carnal willpower becomes immaterial.     Instead of struggling to NOT do what we addictively want to, we find ourselves compelled to co-labor with our great Creator in keeping our bodies operating like a well oiled machine (an infinitely complex one at that).   I have seen this miracle many times when a volunteer teacher in addiction recovery.   I never once witnessed victory through human willpower–I saw it happen only through yielding to God’s love and compassion leading to the “gifts of the Spirit”.

Victory is inherent in focusing on moving toward the light rather than focusing on moving away from the darkness.  Faith changes our “want to”.

In my own experience, as I tuned into God through prayer, obtaining and keeping my healing merged into the same process.  In

persistent and consistent prayer (a brand new experience for me at the time), I began to sense being directed in my physical and mental choices.   I stopped trying to “drive the bus” on the healing highway and began to trust.   TRUST eliminates fear and stressful striving neither of which can succeed in stewarding health.    God gave me a yearning for what my body/soul needed and I began to flow with it.

We need to stay in tune with our Creator constantly and persistently.

I discussed specific aspects of stewarding healing in my book,  I will mention some of those important  revelations regarding stewardship of health below.   However, the foremost precept is that our created body/soul is so complex that no human being has, does, or ever will grasp its makeup and function completely.   We are biochemical and electrical, as we do know, and we have cells of many “types” making up tissues that group into organs that group into systems.  However, organs can function in more than one system, cells can “morph”, and an infinite number of chemical and electrical mechanisms constantly adjust to each other and to the internal environment and external environment.  Neither the human imagination, amazing as it is, nor the most advanced human designed computer could possibly ever register all the processes within the body much less the constant adjustments of every part of these.

Adding man-made chemicals to the mix–designed by human beings in business organizations–aimed at “flicking this or that

Without exception, man-made chemicals have unknown and undesired "other effects" that disturb our highly complex bodies.

chemical or electrical switch” can never do ONLY what the designer intends.  ALWAYS and in every case there are “other effects” marketed as “possible side effects”.   They are not merely possible but probable and no person knows what else is happening that can damage natural processes permanently.   Ingesting a legal man-made chemical is no better “bet” than ingesting a “illegal” one.  We may take an “over the counter” pain relief pill.   It may stop a symptom.  It will never be ingested without unknown consequences and it will not address the cause of the pain.

All this said, never forget that God has the answer for every dis-ease.  He is not surprised by the mess “in the world”.  He created every possible “medicine” (in foods, spices, herbs) to help us maintain these body/souls in absolutely perfect balance chemically and electrically.  It’s a matter of being “in the world but not of the world”.   Yes, what we eat, drink, think, as well as our work, play,  and rest are all part of the health maintenance design of our Creator.   I learned the hard way that our body/souls respond in a healthy way ONLY to food God made and intended for their fueling and sustenance.

If a molecule is present in a particular food (such as ellegiac acid in berries that stimulates apoptosis or suicide

of cancer cells) and we happen to eat more berries than we need one day, the overage will simply pass through without becoming toxic.  That is IF the berries are not laced with pesticides or earthly toxins.    Other than some herbs, foods don’t need to come with “maximum dosage labels”.    God builds that into our “want to”.   We lose an appetite for that food for a period of time.

Food is sometimes concentrated into "supplements" that can be very helpful in a world where industrial farming is rampant. Stay tuned into God when considering supplements.

I’m hesitant to tell you exactly what I did because we each must go to God in prayer for our own “healing plan–nutritional plan”, but I believe there are universal “musts” and they include overcoming inflammation;  being aware of and eating to balance body pH to a slightly alkaline mark;  exposing skin to sunlight without sunscreens regularly; drinking clean water; sleeping deeply and regularly; laughing and exercising (lymphasizing); working with our amazing immune “system”; and assuring body cells have access to essential fatty acids.   In the book, Slam the Door on Cancer,  and/or visiting  and clicking on “Resources” tab at the top of the home page, you can get more detailed information on foods that heal and their specific anti-disease functions.

Prayer and worship keep our spirits in touch with our loving Creator’s Spirit so that He can “coach our health stewardship”.   It’s a simple matter of asking and listening and responding.   It’s all about trusting God. God sees our TRUST in Him and credits it to us as righteousness just as He did Abraham.   (see Gen 15:6, Romans 4:3, Gal 3:6, Jas 2:23)  We may be “in a mess”, but He’s “on the alert” to lead us to victory in every way.

I’m already working on some more specific stewardship insights for the next post.  God bless!

Our Focus for Powerful Prayer 3 of 3

In post 2 of 3 in this series, we ended with the powerful truth that: “When we see His grace, then He sees our faith. I shared Scriptural situations in which Jesus demonstrated this truth powerfully.   We are looking at Biblical ways to strengthen our prayer.

Still, many of us pray for healing unsure if it is part of God’s covenant promises.
It is impossible to pray effectively for something we have the slightest doubt God wants for us. Sometimes we fear the reason our prayers seem to “bounce off the ceiling” is because we have “fallen from grace” because we’ve sinned. Look here at what the Apostle Paul says about “falling from grace”.

Fear of "falling from grace" is an enemy ploy. He is "the accuser of the brethren".

Fear of “falling from grace” is an enemy ploy. He is “the accuser of the brethren”.

Scriptural Insight: There is only one way to “fall from grace”:

Galatians 5:4 (AMP)
4 If you seek to be justified and declared righteous and to be given a right standing with God through the Law, you are brought to nothing and so separated (severed) from Christ. You have fallen away from grace (from God’s gracious favor and unmerited blessing).

The ONLY way to “fall from grace” or be separated from Christ after you receive Him as your Lord and Savior—that is REALLY receive Him with your whole heart—is to believe you can DO something right enough or good enough to gain righteousness and right standing with God.

Jesus said on the cross, “It is finished.” (see John 19:30) He did not say, “I’ve done my part now you get to work to earn access to my work.” It is a free gift because we could never earn it—for hundreds of years after Moses received the law, none could follow it. So God, Himself, in Jesus “fulfilled the law written in stone”. (see Luke 22:37) The law is now written on the hearts of true believers. (see Rom 2:15)

YES, folks who are truly saved have their motivation changed and do good because they want to not out of fear of hell. They DO good works because they ARE righteous and blessed and prayerfully walk in God’s amazing favor. The actions follow accepting the grace of the Lord’s love poured out on the cross, but actions or “works” do not purchase grace and favor.

God's Grace is a free gift and none can earn it...Only believe.

God’s Grace is a free gift and none can earn it…Only believe.

Now let’s look at further Scriptural insight into God’s Grace and Promises that Jesus secured for us without exception if we simply receive:

Ephesians 2:8 (AMP)
8 For it is by free grace (God’s unmerited favor) that you are saved (delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ’s salvation) through [your] faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [of your own doing, it came not through your own striving], but it is the gift of God;

Romans 5:2 (AMP)
2 Through Him also we have [our] access (entrance, introduction) by faith into this grace (state of God’s favor) in which we [firmly and safely] stand. And let us rejoice and exult in our hope of experiencing and enjoying the glory of God (salvation).

Titus 3:4-7 (AMP)
4 But when the goodness and loving-kindness of God our Savior to man [as man] appeared,
5 He saved us, not because of any works of righteousness that we had done, but because of His own pity and mercy, by [the] cleansing [bath] of the new birth (regeneration) and renewing of the Holy Spirit,
6 Which He poured out [so] richly upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior.
7 [And He did it in order] that we might be justified by His grace (by His favor, wholly undeserved), [that we might be acknowledged and counted as conformed to the divine will in purpose, thought, and action], and that we might become heirs of eternal life according to [our] hope. (NOTE: i.e. that we might be “saved by grace through faith”)

There are many instances of “saved by grace through faith” in Scripture. In ALL cases, the original language for “saved” or “salvation” is #4982 “sozo” which means “wholeness of body, soul, and spirit” and not merely “saved from hell”.

We live in the “world” where favor is generally “merited” by hard work. Jesus finished the “work” for our favor. In that “work”, He

God wants to bless His children ALWAYS

God wants to bless His children ALWAYS

gave us what He, a perfect human being walking the earth, deserved and He “finished” what we deserved. He gave us His own righteousness—God sees us only in that righteousness.

We do not earn our salvation (sozo that is)  by works. We do good works because being saved compels us to do them. He gave His body for our physical health. His soul was poured out unto death for our mental/emotional health. He wore the crown of thorns to obliterate the curse of Eden. He gave us access to His spirit at Pentecost after His bodily resurrection when He told us God was “His Father and our Father”. (see John 20:17)

Jesus said we need “just a little faith” or “mustard seed sized faith” but never said: “But strive and workj to have more so Father God can keep His Word.” Jesus said, “Have faith as a little child”. If a good parent makes unconditional promises to a child out of love, does the child need to work on conjuring up ever more faith in the parent’s character?

A child won’t naturally do so. A child will completely focus on the parent’s loving promise. The child will “see” the parent’s granting of “unmerited favor” and a good parent will relish the opportunity to keep a promise—Gracefully keep it. God is a good parent

Never forget John 3:16 even when you encounter confusing preaching or come upon a Scripture that seems to say, “Work or go to hell.” Scripture must be studied in context and Scripture must interpret Scripture. John 3:16 is a foundational Scripture:

“For God so loved the world that He gave His Only Begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life.” Jesus covered ALL the future sin of God’s children……..ALL of our sin was future at the time of the cross. Don’t back away from God’s promised healing.

The Focus For Powerful Prayer 2 of 3

Powerful Prayer Focuses on God's goodness and grace rather than our own faith.

Powerful Prayer Focuses on God’s goodness and grace rather than our own faith.

The first post of this series of three discussed the critical importance of concentrating on the goodness of God when we pray rather than on our own worthiness (apart from Jesus’s finished work) or our own level of faith.   We saw in Scripture that Jesus said we only need faith “as a mustard seed–the smallest seed” to receive what we need from prayer.  This post looks at where we get our mustard seed (and much more) faith so that we enjoy powerful prayer.

Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God

Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God( ( Romans 10:17)



Translation contrasts:    The first is a popular modern translation and the second is Young’s LITERAL translation which word for word considers the original languages Greek for the NT and Hebrew for the OT.  Greek has more complexity than English so that modern translations often oversimplify to the point of missing the true meaning.

Mark 11:21-25 (NIV and many other modern translations)

21 Peter remembered and said to Jesus, “Rabbi, look! The fig tree you cursed has withered!”
22 “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered.
23 “I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him.
24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
25 And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins. (NOTE: This is before Jesus’s crucifixion/resurrection.)

Mark 11:21-26 (YLT) (from original Greek)
21 and Peter having remembered saith to him, `Rabbi, lo, the fig-tree that thou didst curse is dried up.’
22 And Jesus answering saith to them, `Have faith of God; . . . (also translated as “the God kind of faith)

Faith is a continuous gift from God through His Word (both logos and rhema) or (Scripture and God’s ‘still small  voice in our spirit).   Where does faith come from? Can we conjure it up under our own power?

17 So belief (faith) cometh of hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.
“word” = #4487 Strong’s “Rhema” (rhematose) or “God’s/Christ’s spoken word” we still receive. )

Two of many Scriptural examples of successful/powerful focus and answered prayer:

I hope you take time to study this woman’s focus which she thought and, some accounts say, spoke.   She prophesied based on her faith and didn’t even realize she was doing it.  Words and thoughts are the most powerful things in the universe that God SPOKE into existence.

ONE: Mark 5:24-34 (NIV)  24 So Jesus went with him. A large crowd followed and pressed around him.
25 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years.
26 She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse.
27 When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak,
28 because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.”
29 Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering.
30 At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who touched my clothes?”
31 “You see the people crowding against you,” his disciples answered, “and yet you can ask, ‘Who touched me?'”
32 But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it.
33 Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell at his feet and, trembling with fear, told him the whole truth.
34 He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.” (NOTE: This is only time Jesus calls a woman “daughter” in his ministry.)

This woman’s focus was NOT on her own faith but on Jesus’s grace. She was a Jew and had been considered unclean by others for 12 years—isolated and discouraged by earthly means of healing. She probably knew Hebrew Scripture and, therefore knew Malachi 4:2 (NIV) 2 But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings. And you will go out and leap like calves released from the stall. Thus she was strengthened by having heard God’s Word  recited aloud throughout her early life as well as hearing of Jesus’s ministry as He walked the earth as her contemporary.

TWO: Matthew 8:5-13 (NIV)  This man understood Jesus’s authority against the enemy and we must remember that Jesus paid for and passed that authority to His followers of which we are members.

5 When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, asking for help.
6 “Lord,” he said, “my servant lies at home paralyzed and in terrible suffering.”
7 Jesus said to him, “I will go and heal him.”
8 The centurion replied, “Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed.
9 For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”
10 When Jesus heard this, he was astonished and said to those following him, “I tell you the truth, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith.
11 I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.
12 But the subjects of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go! It will be done just as you believed it would.” And his servant was healed at that very hour.

SEEING God's grace with our spiritual eyes is a constant and consistent prayer regardless of where we are or what we are doing.

SEEING God’s grace with our spiritual eyes is a constant and consistent prayer regardless of where we are or what we are doing.

Neither of these persons seeking healing were focused on their faith. They were totally and completely focused on Jesus and His compassion. Neither was conscious of their own faith but they were aware of His grace—indeed of God’s grace and faithfulness.  “Grace” means”undeserved favor”.   We can’t DO enough to deserve it but Jesus did it for us.

When we see His grace, He sees our faith.

    He loves us and wants to lavish His love and mercy on us.

 He also wants to inhabit our worship of Him.  Worship and praise opens the interface between the earthly realm and the heavenly realm.   

The Focus for Powerful Prayer

Can changing our focus while praying make a difference in God's response? YES! Scripture illustrates it.

Can changing our focus while praying make a difference in God’s response? YES! Scripture illustrates this truth.

The Focus for Powerful Prayer

What is the focus within our prayer that brings the power? Is it our own faith, worthiness, or God’s grace? These questions must be considered as we want our prayer to be effective This post is the first of a several part series on prayer focus.

First let’s look at two common focuses illustrated in the same person having an encounter with Jesus.  Then we will think about why one was not effective and the other was powerfully effective just minutes later.  I’ve used Amplified Translation to draw out the inherent original language and added emphasis to key points.

Matthew 15:21-28 (AMP)
21 And going away from there, Jesus withdrew to the district of Tyre and Sidon.
22 And behold, a woman who was a Canaanite from that district came out and, with a [loud, troublesomely urgent] cry, begged, Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David! My daughter is miserably and distressingly and cruelly possessed by a demon!
23 But He did not answer her a word. And His disciples came and implored Him, saying, Send her away, for she is crying out after us.

24 He answered, I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
25 But she came and, kneeling, worshiped Him and kept praying, Lord, help me!
26 And He answered, It is not right (proper, becoming, or fair) to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs. (puppies)
27 She said, Yes, Lord, yet even the little pups (little whelps) eat the crumbs that fall from their [young] masters’ table.
28 Then Jesus answered her, O woman, great is your faith! Be it done for you as you wish. And her daughter was cured from that moment.

In verse 22, this non-Jew or gentile woman attempts to approach Jesus in a way a Jew would have denoting Jesus as “Son of David”. We see this phrase commonly used by Jews approaching Jesus as they are seeking healing or deliverance. Scripture makes it clear that Jesus came first to God’s Covenant People so there is an element of “worthy by covenant”–the “Old Covenant”.  We will later look at our “worthiness under the covenant of grace or New Covenant” but, in either, the focus during prayer is key.

Jesus clearly made no response to the Canaanite woman’s feigning a covenant position, and, therefore, positionally deserving of Jesus’s attention and action. The “card” she was attempting to play was “worthiness” and it did not work. The disciples were quite irritated with the woman.  Jesus, in His kindness, explained the covenant position.

In verse 25, however, the woman realizes she’s been “busted” for her charade and “came and, kneeling, worshiped Him and kept praying.” She is humbly persistent and asks for the smallest token of His mercy and compassion—the crumbs of His divine “bread”. Later, at the last supper, we learn that the use of “bread” in this story was prophetic regarding healing. Nevertheless, this gentile woman realizes even the “crumbs” of  Jesus’s great compassion are enough to bring wholeness to her afflicted daughter.

This woman changed her focus from her own “worthiness” to Jesus’s love, compassion, mercy, and grace (unmerited favor). She knelt and worshiped Jesus throwing herself on His mercy. She knew that even the “crumbs” would be powerful enough.   She had no thought of the level of her own faith.

When we are praying for  healing or favor or protection, often we feel guilt or concern that we are unworthy because of something we have done. Or we worry that our faith may not be strong enough to have God’s own promises come true in our lives. Or worse, we may believe that God may not want to answer “Yes and amen” in our particular case because He’s punishing us. ALL of these focuses are lies from the enemy of our souls and they divert our attention from what we must focus on for powerful prayer.

If we are not spending time in God’s Word, we may not be aware of God’s own promises for our lives under the New Covenant of God’s grace (unmerited favor). We may wonder, like the disciples following Jesus, how to strengthen our faith.

Luke 17:5-6 (NIV)
5 The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” 
6 He replied, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.

(NOTE: Telling a big tree to move is not a natural event. Faith opens the supernatural realm.  Worship also does this because God inhabits our worship as Scripture teaches.)

Mark 4:31 (NIV)
31 It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest seed you plant in the ground.

Jesus said we only need a tiny amount of faith to have what we SAY (not what we wish or hope for or beg for IF it’s God’s will). NO!

However, every indication in Scripture is that the power to see our prayers answered “Yes and Amen” as God promises—that

Persistence is important in prayer but the focus must still be on God's Grace (unmerited favor).

Persistence is important in prayer but the focus must still be on God’s Grace (unmerited favor).

amazing power we saw in Jesus’s resurrection—that power is NOT  within focusing on our own faith but within focusing on God’s compassion, love, and grace. When we SEE His grace, then He sees our faith even though we have not been thinking about our faith when we pray.

In my next post, I will share Scripture that helps us understand where our faith comes from and also look at examples from Jesus’s ministry illustrating the power of focusing on God’s grace rather than one’s own faith as we pray.

We will also look at some Bible translation errors (examining original language) that will help us better understand the subject of faith and powerful prayer. God wants to say “Yes and Amen”. . . Our prayers are powerful when they line up with God’s own Word.  

Water Heals!

"Bathe Daily INSIDE as well as OUTSIDE with pure water.

“Bathe Daily INSIDE as well as OUTSIDE with pure water.

In this post I share an excerpt from my book, Slam the Door on Cancer and Lock It Out of Your Life.   The subject is thirst and health and applies to ALL health aspects.   Even if you have read the book, I urge you to “refresh yourself” by again visiting this critical subject.

Thirst No More

Remember when I talked about the amazing impact words have upon water referring to the book, The Hidden Messages in Water by Masaru Emoto? Water we take in has an amazing impact on us as well. Our bodies are largely water. The “healthy state” implies that we must keep the water content of our bodies properly distributed. Hydration is the single most important element of good health because it facilitates all normal body functions.

In all my research, one of the most fascinating resources was Dr. F. Batmanghelidg, M.D.’s, Water for Health, for Healing, for Life. The tag line in the title is “You’re Not Sick, You’re THIRSTY!” Dr. “Batman” (his chosen nickname) spent his incarceration as an Iranian prisoner of war treating fellow inmates for stress related diseases. He kept careful records of his work so he could share his conclusions. The “take away” points of this book in our context include:

1. “Dry mouth is not the only sign of dehydration.”  Don’t wait until you are thirsty to drink water. “It is now crystal clear that the human body has many different ways of showing its water needs.”  I list other signs of thirst later.

2. Water is not only “life sustaining” but also “life giving” in its nature. 3 Water is not inert as Dr. Emoto’s crystals reveal; rather it holds within it far more cosmic truth than we have realized even though Scripture is rich with lessons regarding “living water”– lessons often interpreted too figuratively. Water constantly transports life-giving elements to every cell and transports life threatening toxins from every cell. We have seen in Emoto’s crystals, that it is somehow part of our soul as well as body.

3. People are deceived “thinking that tea, coffee, alcohol, and manufactured beverages can substitute for the pure natural water needs of the body.”  “Dr. Batman” says this assumption is “an elementary mistake, particularly in a body that is stressed. It is true that these beverages contain water, but most also contain dehydrating substances such as caffeine . . . ”when you drink coffee, tea, or even a beer, your body gets rid of more water than is contained in the drink.”  We know that only pure water contains oxygen and hydrogen, which is the only material in a beverage our blood and lymph fluid can use.

We must keep water “flowing” through our bodies constantly to avoid “stagnation”. Doctors Guyton and Hall, in The Textbook of Medical Physiology, 11th Ed., explain, “The kidneys must continually excrete at least some fluid, even in a dehydrated person, to rid the body of excess solutes that are ingested or produced by metabolism. Water is also lost by evaporation from the lungs and the gastrointestinal tract and by evaporation and sweating from the skin. Therefore, there is always a tendency for dehydration, with the resultant increased extracellular fluid sodium concentration.” Additionally there is a threshold for drinking at a certain sodium concentration in the extracellular fluid. “Water intake restores extracellular fluid osmolality (movement through membranes) and volume toward normal.”  Earlier, when we were discussing the various receptors on cell membranes, I mentioned that one of them was a pump requiring oxygen to generate energy. That pump relies on proper sodium concentration in the fluid between cells. “Dr. Batman” adds, “All living and growing species, humans included, survive as a result of energy generation from water.”

Hydration is important to "putting the inflammation fire out" in our bodies and drugged up beverages have the opposite effect

Hydration is important to “putting the inflammation fire out” in our bodies and drugged up beverages have the opposite effect

All Drinks are NOT  Used by Our Bodies as Water

Media is packed with energy booster drinks hyped to overcome that “afternoon slump” capitalizing on the everyone-does-it lifestyle. Even the pink ribbon disease marketing campaign now participates in this health counterfeit. “Dr. Batman”, however, can save us some grief and money as he teaches regarding feeling tired without a plausible reason. He says, “Water is the main source of energy formation in the body. Even the food that is supposed to be a good source of energy has no value to the body until it is hydrolyzed by water and energized in the process.”  Until recently, car batteries required monitoring of their water level to keep the current flowing. Now they are “closed cell” so water is not lost. We saw in previous chapters that electrical energy generation at the cellular level is an essential life process. Guess what, we still have to monitor and maintain our body’s “battery” water level. Pure water or liquid “Foo Foo Dust” for energy boost? No contest!

“Dr. Batman” also gives other body thirst signs such as unreasonable irritability, dejection, feelings of inadequacy, autoimmune maladies and depression. He also discusses short attention span, quick temper, flushing, shortness of breath, cravings for manufactured beverages and alcohol, feeling “heavy headed” and disturbed sleep as “body thirst” signals.  Many of these things are linked to acid/alkaline imbalance from dehydration triggered situations in the body such as loss of amino acids (proteins) and insufficient absorption or loss of certain minerals and the absolute need for essential vitamins and fatty acids.”  Nearly every book or study I’ve read points out that cancer thrives in an acidic body environment and even perpetuates that condition as it progresses. Drs. Batman and Budwig compliment each other well.

Race for the Cure–Recent Headlines

Hello readers!    I am a bit late with this post because we were traveling for our 50th anniversary.   It was a wonderful milestone we planned nearly a decade ago when doctors pretty much patted me on the head and said, “Sorry about your luck” as they diagnosed a large cancer in my pancreas and surrounding areas.   They were wrong about “luck”.   God was right about our “wonderfully created bodies”.

What is the "race" really for?

What is the “race” really for?

When we returned home, I was wading through the accumulated mail and saw the front page of the August 24 issue of Barron’s Magazine/Newspaper with colorful depiction of “cancer cells” and the headline “CANCER:  THE NEW CURE”.   Barron’s is a financial investment publication , of course, so it covers all the stocks of the pharmaceutical industry within its broader scope.

I knew what perspective to expect in this article, but I continued and read the sub-headline, “By tapping the body’s immune system, drugmakers are making big gains in the war on cancer.  Winners in this potential $30 Billion market could be . (several large pharmaceutical companies were named).  . .”.       The mention of the body’s immune system tweaked my “irony antennae” compelling me to check out the claims and focus in the article.   The article said, “While creating a huge market for drug makers, immune-oncology’s success (the ‘new drugs that tapped the immune system’) could also add $30 billion to our nation’s medical bills . . .”   Higher health care premiums anyone?   Higher taxes anyone?

Why would I think it ironic for an article about oncological pharmaceuticals to mention “tapping the body’s immune

Good intentions . . . . . but what is the real "Finish Line"?

system”?     First, this concept is a 180 degree turn from all the oncological drug development that blatantly destroyed “the body’s immune system” which, of course, is the innate cancer fighting system in our “wonderfully created bodies”.

In researching to overcome cancer’s attack on my own body and, later, in preparing to write my book, Slam the Door on Cancer and Lock it out of Your Life, I literally consulted hundreds of resources–books, studies, articles, etc.   I was searching for a consensus in ways I could activate the built in anti-cancer (indeed anti-disease) mechanisms in my body.  Allopathic medicine, I knew, had nothing to offer me other than an excruciating end of life experience.  Pancreatic tumors have well known negative prognoses.

I also knew that my physician husband, because of his orthodox medical training, would have difficulty supporting any “alternative treatment” choice.    Even after my scans reported “no evidence of recurrent or residual disease” he struggled with my nutritional and spiritual pursuits–but not for long because it’s a lot more pleasant living with someone who becomes healthier  (and more joyful)  daily.   My healing became contagious and my husband soon participated fully in my anti-cancer lifestyle.   How did it happen?    Are you ready?   I tapped my body’s immune system.    Fortunately, however, I did not need pharmaceuticals like the “immune-oncology contrivances” described in the Barron’s article I mentioned above.

By the way, the article works through “drug trial” and “clinical studies” lingo and most readers would probably think, “Wow, finally some progress in the (tired and well hyped) “war on cancer” ignoring the truth that very little life changing progress has been made in this “war” over the many decades it’s been “waged”  although “statistics” have become evermore craftily maneuvered.    Most people are not aware that the term, “cure”,  is hardly the goal, but “5 years of survival” is the standard for success–regardless of quality of life in that interim.     I’ve never understood “remission” as a health goal nor have I found others who can explain it plausibly–including doctors.   I was careful to avoid the word as I pursued restoration of health.

Nevertheless, this article flows along on a plane of standard drug development jargon from a profit making perspective.  Profit, in itself, is not a dirty word; however, greed is just that even if it can be draped in pretty words like “exciting times in the history of oncology”.  Who could argue against such a statement published in an investment publication with projected costs per patient of $100,00 to $150,000 per year.  With these “trials” and “studies” designed and paid for by the pharmaceutical companies who are producing the drugs and with the competition between behemoth drug companies generally hyped as participating in an exciting “Race for a Cure”, folks diagnosed with all “types of cancer” can find their way into the  profit ballooning giddiness at least for a while.

As I read the article, I gasped at the statement, “Doctors have long suspected that our immune system had a role in controlling cancer.”    The article implies this has been known 100 years  het my research gives it much longer recognition than that.   This statement led me to the truths and facts I’d learned that took me from the low point of doctors scurrying to get me discharged from the hospital to be home for what the seemed to fear was “my last Christmas” to the high point of spending my 50th anniversary wading pristine creeks high in the Great Smokey Mountains.   I had “immuno-oncological” help but it wasn’t of the $100,000/year variety.   It was of the God-made variety which, of course, perfectly matches the needs of our God-made bodies and souls.   Why do I mention souls?   Because, even though standard western medicine largely ignores it, we have absolute biochemical and Biblical proof that the body and soul cannot be separated, period.   I discuss this point further in “Obtain Your Healing and Keep It” offered as a free download on this blog.

What did I do?   I changed my life–eating, drinking, sleeping, working, praying, meditating on God’s Word, FORGIVING, etc.     I got rid of the “make you sick stuff” like bitterness, anger, etc. which stopped the chronic and continual churning of “emergency response chemicals” through my body.     I quit taking in toxins like sugar, MSG and other excitotoxins, fluoride, etc.   I made darn sure I only put clean pure God made food and water in my body.   All this is discussed in my book and other blog posts.   Basically, I  freed my immune mechanisms to do what they were designed to do and keeping cancer at bay is an important part of that.

In the Barron’s article, there is an interesting graphic of the “Multiple targets in immune-oncology”.   It has 7 “segments” in a sequential cycle with drug company names listed under each one I suppose indicating their “I-O territory”.  There are 3 segments mentioning the T-cells of the immune system which quickly got my attention.  Yes, T-cells are great  wonderfully created anti-cancer immune system “workers”.   Interestingly, I found Beta 1c3 Glucan years ago  which has a plethora of research  on its function (Dr. Vaclav Vetvicka, Ph.D (U of Louisville) has a book, Beta Glucan:  Nature’s Secret, quite informative on this fungal derivative).  Transfer Point Beta Glucan has been boosting my T-cell function quite satisfactorily all this time.  I have no business link with this manufacturer and I’ve learned recently that NSC BetaGlucan is also good.

In Slam the Door on Cancer, I share other specific foods (including spices like curcumin from turmeric), green tea, fresh, frozen or extracted organic berries, organic vegetable juicing, essential fatty acids (in a balance of omega 6 and omega 3), certain herbs and food based minerals) all of which have specific immune system boosting mechanisms including stimulation of apoptosis (suicide of rogue cells) and preventing angiogenesis (blood vessel growth to tumors).   Hippocrates did say, “Let your food be your medicine and your medicine be your food.”   The body is complex and so is good clean food–they harmonize perfectly.

I am not of the cure for cancer mentality whether allopathic or alternative–there are no “silver bullets” and certainly our bodies have absolutely efficient innate means for humming along at the peak of health IF AND ONLY IF we avoid poisoning them (including toxic words and thoughts) and IF AND ONLY IF we provide them the essential materials to constantly build brand new healthy cells as we constantly replace “spent” ones.   Because I didn’t jump into a “cure strategy”, I found that moving into good nutrition and an “anti-cancer lifestyle” physically, mentally, and spiritually caused my body to detox naturally.   It WILL heal if we don’t bully it with drugs and “cure strategies”.   Supplements can be drugs too if they are man-made.

Cancer is not a pandemic because we are all “sitting ducks” and a growing percentage of us are gunned down as the “cancer nazis” fly over.     It’s not even really a disease.    It is the body screaming, “stop killing me by undermining your own immune system”.    Why does it occur in a particular place?   Well, what’s your poison of choice?   Where will your toxin-loaded wheelbarrow tip over on its way to an over worked excretory mechanism in your body?     Cancer is a symptom of extreme ill health of the body/soul.  It is not a shortage of a man-made chemical in our bodies.

Do you have to wait for Big Pharma to ride in on a white horse?   It’s not been my personal experience.  You can go to the God Made source while the drug developers try to make man-made versions they can patent.   For example, curcumin in the ancient spice turmeric was shown to have a “staggering effect on killing cancer cells” in several well known medical institution laboratories.   How did the “cancer industry” react?    Apparently there has been a scurrying around to develop a synthetic version of turmeric because ancient spices can’t be patented.     Check it out in the former pharmaceutical chemist Shane Ellison’s book, Over the Counter Natural Cures.

Faith as a Mustard Seed is Plenty

Jesus said mustard seeds were the smallest seeds and a measure of the faith we need for God's promises to come true in our lives.

Jesus said mustard seeds were the smallest seeds and a measure of the faith we need for God’s promises to come true in our lives.

We’ve all prayed for people who did not get well. This is a topic I talk about in my book looking at some specific issues that arise; however today I want to focus on the one that really encompasses all the others. IT IS OUR FOCUS WHEN PRAYING.

Most of the time we are timid about the promises of God for healing and have little concept of HOW TO MAKE THE PROMISES OF GOD SURE IN OUR LIVES.

Scriptures repeatedly tells us that our “salvation” must be of FAITH by GRACE.
Romans 4:16
Therefore it is of faith that it might be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all…

We MUST realize that the original language for “salvation” is the Greek “SOZO” which means WHOLENESS OF BODY, SOUL, AND SPIRIT.

What is GRACE? (Unmerited, undeserved favor)

What is Faith and how much do we need to make the promises of God sure in our lives?

Jesus clearly explained “faith”, “Truly I tell you, IF you have faith as small as a mustard seed, (THEN) you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” (Mt 17: 20-21)

And, again, Jesus Mk 4:31 “mustard seed, which is the smallest of seed”

Luke 17:6 — The disciples asked Jesus to “increase our faith”. (v5) Jesus replied, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.”

The above tree and mountain scenarios are not “natural happenings” but faith does not take natural facts into account. Facts change. Truth does not change. Faith ALWAYS brings God on the scene and He is the same now as when He made the promises we have just observed in Scripture.

Romans 4:16 is cited above but deserves another look: “Therefore, the promise (of salvation/SOZO) comes by faith, so that it may be by grace and may be guaranteed to all Abraham’s offspring—not only to those who are of the law (Jews) but also to those who have the faith of Abraham. He is the father of us all.
Romans 5:1-2 says it yet again, “There, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, (2) through whom we have gained access (SOZO) by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God)

love-god-in-sand-1314534-640x480Ephesians 2:8 also assures this promise: “For it is by grace you have been saved (SOZO) through faith through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not works

The promise of salvation is not just “fire insurance” but a promise of wholeness (sozo) and it is given because of God’s GRACE (undeserved favor and not our works). We tend to struggle with this concept and want to earn the outcome of the promise.

SOZO is not just being saved from hell but from sickness, disease, poverty, evil spirits, curses, etc. We jump to conclusions because of words used by translators “saved” and we don’t meditate fully on these verses like Ephesians 2:8.    It means having ALL Jesus secured through His body, soul and spirit through His blood spilled from the cross and His too often ignored resurrection.


When we misunderstand modern translations, we think we have to DO SOMETHING to conjure up the faith mentioned. Faith IS the currency of heaven but Jesus said we only need faith as small as the smallest seed…the mustard seed. We all surely have that much faith and we get it as a gift from God.   [NOTE:  Mark 11:22-23A, in the original language although, sadly, not in many modern translations, says:  “And Jesus answering saith to them, ‘Have faith OF God; for verily I say to you that whoever may say to this mount . . .” (Young’s Literal Translation)   He is saying, “use the faith you received by God’s grace when you first believed”.   We needn’t be proud of our level of faith because we haven’t created it.  God has.

My point is this. When praying for healing (or any other need) to manifest, the focus MUST NOT be on our own faith. Our focus must be totally, completely, earnestly on God’s amazing grace NEVER asking ourselves, “Do I deserve this from God?” The answer is always NO! I don’t deserve it and never could do anything to deserve it. The enemy of our souls wants us to ask such questions.   Jesus has stood in for us and made His righteousness our own so that this question is moot.  God wants us to have it or He would not have given His only son to establish it for us.

This point is illustrated in Scripture: the woman with the issue of blood (Luke 8:42b-48), the Roman centurion’s servant (Luke 7:1-10), the Canaanite woman whose daughter was demon possessed (Mt 15:21-28), and others including the paralytic lowered through the roof. (Mark 2:1-5)  I urge you to look these stories up and read them with new perspective of the principle focus with which each person approached the Lord.

In every case, the person seeking healing focused ONLY on the compassion and power of Jesus and NEVER on their own level of faith. Jesus saw their faith but they were not anxious about their level of faith. They were persistent because they believed in His grace.

We EACH must say, “I have a mustard seed and I’m not afraid to use it because God promised and Jesus is my righteousness. Jesus got what I deserved and I get what He deserves. It’s bold but it’s THE basis of prayer that moves the mountains (troubles) out of our lives.

Practicing Medicine — Two Perspectives

This "sign" caught my eye as both a graphic and a troublesome metaphor for attitudes toward  "modern medicine".

This “sign” caught my eye as both a graphic and a troublesome metaphor for attitudes toward “modern medicine”.

I hope you will bear with me in this post because it is not like any other I’ve written.

I’ve been reading a series of historical novels, The Poldark Series, by Winston Graham. They are set in Cornwall, England from 1783 to 1820. The main character is Ross Poldark, a British soldier from an ancient but not wealthy “landed gentry” family, just returning from America’s “Revolutionary War”.

Poldark’s service in the war began more as an adventure than a patriotic commitment and his life, upon return, yields historically correct insights to every aspect of life in that era —then and, in some mysterious way, now. Masterpiece Theatre on “Public Educational Television” has just aired amazing renditions of the first 2 of 11 ‘nearly impossible to put down’ books. That’s a bold statement for someone who reads hardly any fiction.

Why would I mention my reading in this blog? The subject of health either directly or indirectly pervades every page and I’ve been fascinated with the accurately disclosed details of the “practice of medicine” at that time in history as well as public attitudes toward it and toward “doctors”. Braided into the exceptional writing is an ongoing comparison of two “medical practitioners” with glimpses into contrasting (indeed conflicting) approaches–approaches still reflected in todays practice of medicine.

One of the doctors is glibly barbaric with detachedly “bleeding patients” the main approach as he “treats” those of “higher station” only.

pouring chemicals

ONLY poisons, potents, and painful procedures and “food is considered inert’.

He treats each case pretty much the same way regardless of circumstances. The other doctor is a younger well trained but more sensitive man who treats the many destitute mostly mining families and a few discerning upper class. He really focuses on individualizing his treatment.

Woven into the multiple story lines are vignettes of epidemics, scourges due to malnourishment, etc. Home care and what passes as “hospital care” are eye opening. For example, the “orthodox treatment” of an eye disease (possibly glaucoma) is this: “Tie a silk scarf around the “patient’s” neck as tightly as possible without asphyxiating them, then bleed them behind both ears.”

The younger doctor character, who does not condone “blood letting treatment”,

Many of nature's gifts have been treating disease without painful side effects for centuries all over the world.  They need not be "trashed".

Many of nature’s gifts have been treating disease without painful side effects for centuries all over the world. They need not be “trashed”.

does a great deal of personal research with herbs etc. He actually tries to determine and deal with the cause of the disease and does some elementary work with epidemiology. He has the “novel idea” that the body is created to heal and that creative innate design should and can be worked with rather than around or against.

Of course the old “elite” doctor calls the younger one “a quack upstart” being quite territorial. He is quite brash and threatened when the younger’s patients seem to do better than his. Folks begin to notice that trend.

What’s really interesting is the younger doctor’s recognition of the role played by nutrition, hygiene, and even mental/emotional stresses in disease. There are specific references to specific diseases.

This story line is not major in the novels but it is subtly woven through as an integral part of the era portrayed in time, setting, and pathos. Health is an unavoidable topic in life then as now. Has there ever been a time in history that health was an avoidable “story line”?

Hardly, I think as, even in Biblical times, it is more than a side track.  In Exodus, God tells the Israelites being freed that “He is their health.” and we see He kept His Word.   Jesus’s ministry was deeply and broadly rooted in healing of both body and soul and that reality should be more than a hint to us of how disease always has one foot in each.  Of course, recently, this link was irrefutably proven by the brilliant research of Dr. Candace Pert even though “medical science” still resists applying the findings.

Some agreements seem "set in stone" even though the good intentions they are based on are proven wrong.

Some agreements seem “set in stone” even though the good intentions they are based on are proven wrong.

Winston Graham’s exquisitely crafted Poldark novels are set about 1800 years after Christ’s ministry. And they are set about 200 years after scientist philosopher Rene DesCartes , who was in trouble with “the church” sought papal permission to dissect cadavers. DesCartes made a deal with the Pope giving “science” jurisdiction over the body and “religion” dominion over the soul. We are, in these novels, privy to a ground level look at the misery wrought from forgetting the Biblical truth and doggedly holding to the humanly contrived religious/political “fact”.  Practicing medicine is still influenced by this unfortunate dividing up of our personal human geography.

In 2016, we see the same conflicts as in Poldark’s “era”. The well-established highly profitable traditional sick care viewpoint versus the more holistic and individualized but less profitable health care perspective. In one, food is pronounced inert and not to be taken seriously. Orthdox “cures” , largely, must be man-made materials (and profitable). Generally, as with the elder doctor in Graham’s novels, treatments are ‘one size fits all and often performed regardless of actual effectiveness or “unseemly additional effects”. Any alternative to these procedures is scoffed at by the established medical industry as “heretical quackery”—particularly if individualized nutrition, lifestyle, and emotional/mental (soul) healing aspects are considered. Patent profits are impossible on fresh food of course.

Certainly “modern medicine” has brought mankind phenomenal trauma care and emergency care.   This is the area in which the practice of medicine shines forth.   I’ve certainly been blessed by the advances in this area of medicine. It is the “management of health” I wonder about.   Certainly there are doctors who practice such care with as much art as science–and there are others so susceptible to the “pharma push” that they let the art slip away and the prescribed routine always rule.   In surgery, I believe that artistic skill  still eclipses science in overriding importance.   I’ve benefitted from that truth.

As I “see” the characters on Graham’s pages struggle to live in a beautiful but unrelenting seacoast section of England, they laugh, cry, dance, slog through the mud, deal with taxation and feudal but familiar politics, give birth, bury children, love, hate, give, take, win and lose. The descriptions are vivid and the relationships empathetically disclosed. Two questions pervade all. Who is trustworthy? and Who is courageous?

 These  are overwhelming questions in every “moment” of these novels, as I see it.   And do they not remain “the” questions we focus on whether regarding our health, politics, business, or any other facet of life? They are to me and I’m eternally grateful to have ONE I know I can trust—Creator of my body, my soul, the food I need, the water I need, the air I breath, and the absolutely essential love that is the stick that stirs all that matters. He’s always been the ONLY trustworthy . . . and accessible ONE and healing is His passion. We saw that when He took on human flesh to do for us what we could never do for ourselves . . . . and He changed all prospects. He’s the reason we can be courageous and sure as we contend for our health.

Healing Energy–Touch is More than a “Warm Fuzzy”

Touching with healing intent transfers electrons to a person fighting dis-ease.

Touching with healing intent transfers electrons to a person fighting dis-ease.

Healing Energy–Touch is More than a “Warm Fuzzy”

Although it’s been years now, I still vividly recall lying in the post surgery ICU of a top level oncology hospital and craving the loving touch of my family members who kept a “waiting room vigil” only to be allowed to “see me” briefly and infrequently. I was in and out of a coma but I knew one thing for certain. I needed the touch of my loved ones. I know now that my life depended on the electrons their touch could transfer to my body that was nearly depleted of energy due to pharmaceutical intake and isolation from life-giving resources.

Recently I shared a short excerpt from my book, “Slam the Door on Cancer”, on by blog at . In that post, I mentioned several Scriptural and secular references regarding the importance of our healing touch. I hope you will check out that short post if you have not yet. The science is profound but the Word of God gives it credence not obtainable elsewhere. And, of course, the “science” is God’s own design.

In this post I want to look at the basis of that power in human touch from a “science perspective” because it is literally a “high voltage” healing mechanism. We are biochemical beings in our body/souls and “modern medicine” is honed in on this chemistry much to the exclusion of our equally important bioelectrical state of being. We should not wonder that chemical therapy makes us deathly ill . . . and, oddly, most people don’t even stop to think about this issue when they “sign on” for it. I will also share ways to “recharge the power in our touch” by boosting our own electron balance.

Recently, a friend whose adult child has entered the “chemo-therapy/radiation” protocol doctors recommended for post surgery cancer treatment, expressed how disturbed she was at the orders to not hug her daughter because the treatment so weakened her immune system that human contact was being denied this beloved child. I began to pray even more fervently for insight and discernment for these treasured folks using Paul’s prayers in Ephesians 1 and 3.

I reflected upon the many hours I’d spent in oncology waiting rooms awaiting lab tests and scans during the months directly following my own cancer surgery. So much fear and anxiety and evidence of treatment “side effects” and just so much dull gray fatigue in the atmosphere! Conversation amongst many of God’s stricken beloved, sharing a kindred burden, compared what “the doctors had told them”. This “mantra” always included: “stay out of the sunshine”; “eat only cooked foods”; “always wear the surgical mask and avoid human contact”, etc. Faith was stifled by fear and isolation.

If you’ve read “Slam the Door on Cancer” or followed either of my blogs for very long, you know my compelling interest

Michelangelo's painting of God's hand reaching near man's is quite prophetic of the electron transfer we can experience.

Michelangelo’s painting of God’s hand reaching near man’s is quite prophetic of the electron transfer we can experience.

in all the insights we are getting from quantum science opening up to us in just the past century and largely ignored by “conventional modern medicine” perhaps due to its financial alignment with the chemical industry.

Quantum science is all about energy and matter. Einstein proved that relationship. Our bodies are “matter” and life is fueled by “energy” at the cellular level. Insights for healthy living abound as we learn the role of our bioelectric aspects—especially electrons. I see many links to Jesus’s ministry in quantum science—the things we “saw darkly” are now being clarified.(1 Cor 13:12)

It’s undeniable that our brain and nerves function electrically and our hearts beat because of an electrical impulse. Every cell of our bodies, if healthy, generates electrical energy fueling the work the cells do and the work (and play) that we do. We were created with a “healthy voltage” that we can maintain or replenish (or not). Lifestyle (and chemical intake) can rob us of this power forcing us into the chronic “dis-ease state”. Electrons (atomic particles in all molecules) are our “ground zero” energy “instruments”. Incidentally, electrons are particularly sabotaged by every single part of the “fear based waiting room mantra” I cited earlier.

I intend to write more about this subject in the future; however, I wanted to introduce a few practical points here.

“Chronic disease is always defined by having low (body) voltage. One cannot cure chronic disease without inserting enough electrons to achieve -50mV. One must have the raw materials necessary to make new cells and to eliminate the toxins or infections present that will damage the new cells. You can take all of the medications you like and do as much surgery as you like, but you will not heal unless you have -50mV (millivolts), raw materials (nutrients) and lack of toxins.” (source: Dr. Jerry L. Tennant, M.D. in “Healing is Voltage: The Handbook”).

The human body, of course, is mostly water and most of us know water is two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen. Turns out that low body voltage causes the oxygen “part” to leave our cells. How long can you hold your breath? Cells can’t do without oxygen either—except cancer cells that ferment rather than oxidize nutrients.

What can we do to maintain healthy body voltage level? Electrons, the “stuff” of voltage, naturally flow from areas of high voltage to areas of low voltage. So is health maintenance a matter of bringing more electrons flowing into our bodies and hindering electrons leaving us? It is and doing so involves lifestyle!

1. Touching (like hugs) transfers electrons from one person to another—from the person with higher voltage to the person with lower voltage. Of course this can be part of a “healing touch” and the “healthy person” can replenish electrons through lifestyle.


2. Since our bodies are 70+% water, of course water intake is critical (Quantity and Quality). Drinking acidic water—“tap water”, chlorinated water, fluoridated water, most commercially packaged water etc. robs us of electrons rather than providing them. Alcoholic, caffeinated, carbonated, and otherwise processed beverages are “anti-electron” in our metabolism. We get electrons from ionized water (obtained from clean wells or through specialized (and often expensive filters) or well-filtered water (I use an inexpensive countertop Zero Water Filter) that comes with a digital meter.

3. Raw organic foods are essential and potent electron suppliers. I recently posted about labeling to look for on my blog. Cooked and processed foods not only do not provide electrons but those that contain chemical additives cause additional electron loss.

4. Exposure to wind and air conditioning stimulates loss of electrons . Thus, fatigue (low energy due to low voltage) is intensified by exposure to wind. Knowing this, we can purposely replenish our electrons with intermittent breaks to exercise and pray, which has been proven to recharge our physical/mental battery.

5. At least minimal exposure to natural sunlight daily replenishes electrons in ways we absolutely need and can store (if our cell membranes are healthy). Organic plant based diets (photosynthesis produces photons that attract electron); diets rich in balanced Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids; avoidance of hydrogenated fats (processed oleo and some nut butters); and partaking of the “Budwig flax oil/high sulfur protein protocol” all work because of their electron enriching properties. Cell membranes (brain of the cell) are largely constructed of fatty acids.

6. Exercise! Our muscles actually create electrons when we exercise. Muscles also act like a storage

The routine can be adapted to various healing levels.

Barefoot in the sand and soil draws on the earth’s powerful electromagnetism.

7. Moving water generates absorbable electrons. Thus taking showers rather than baths is a way of replenishing electrons. Filtered showerheads, of course, can help remove the damaging chemicals in tap water. We know our skins absorb such chemicals so we do well to protect it from exposure to them in water and skin care products.

8. The earth is a powerful electromagnet. Walk on it barefooted, lean against trees and soak in blessed electrons. Let your pets spend time on the ground (that’s not sprayed with electron killing chemicals) so they can carry electrons back to you when you pet them. God’s given us an abundant “battery charger”. Get your hands dirty in a garden.

9. Fulvic Acid dietary supplementation can supply our bodies with a wealth of energy generating electrons. Recently on , I provided several links to information about Fulvic Acid (extracted from deposits of plant based Humic Shale in various areas of the world).

There are deposits of material from ancient forests now yielding humid shale with "lost minerals and nutrients" now available again.

There are deposits of material from ancient forests now yielding humid shale with “once lost minerals and nutrients” now available again.

Fulvic acid is the absolute smallest particle of this “ancient forest compost” so to speak. “It has all the genetic information, all of the nutrition, all of the antioxidant capacity. The molecule of fulvic acid has 14 tetra trillion (14 with 21 zeros behind it) electrons it can donate (and neutralize free damaging free radicals which are cellular debris left over from cellular metabolism and work). Thus the body can return to carrying a healthy electrical voltage and body cells and tissue work as they are created to do. They have the electricity to operate.

High electrical activity kills cancer cells. It balances acidity, delivers oxygen to cells, and balances the chemistry of well over 70% of our bodies.

Fulvic acid acts as a delivery system for nutrients as well as “picking up the cellular garbage including heavy metals. It is high in carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. (source: Dr. Daniel Nuzum, MS., ND. in an interview with Ty Bollinger, author of “The Truth About Cancer” in transcript of “The Quest for the Cures Continues” 2015. Paraphrased.) links to a video with Dr. Nuzum explaining Fulvic Acid further. is a link to one of Dr. Tennant’s videos on Youtube and this particularly one discusses Fulvic Acid.

 I will be posting about bioelectrical healing topics again soon. I want to help my readers understand even more powerful ways to “Slam the Door on Disease” once and for all. I hope you will take time to read Psalms 91 soon and be encouraged that, although the world deals out a lot of harm, God offers protection for those who realize the great gift of His grace through faith. If we focus on His Grace . . . then our faith expands just like the “woman with the issue of blood”. (Matthew 9, Mark 5, Luke 2). Focused prayer is focused energy—“The same spirit that raised Jesus from the dead dwells in us and quickens our mortal bodies . “ (Romans 8:11)  It’s REAL power.

Fulvic Acids–Worth Investigating Now!

Fulvic acid molecules are so small and transportable that they "service" our body cells like no other molecules can.

Fulvic acid molecules are so small and transportable that they “service” our body cells like no other molecules can.

Fulvic Acids (and Humid Acids) are definitely worth taking a little time to investigate for your health.
I Believe You Will Want to Learn About Humic and Fulvic Minerals and their integral part of health and healing. Personally, I have been digging in the research for months since learning about these critical and ever more important nutrients (increasing in importance as our food sources are grown in steadily depleting soils).

The subject of fulvic/humic acids is somewhat complex; therefore, I will give you several links for you to glean further information. I encourage you to take the time to become informed about these nutrients as well as to pray for insight as you seek the information.

These nutrients are NOT some man-made substitute for God’s own nutritional plan. They are, in fact, part of Creation itself and are entering our awareness now much as though God knew we would mess up our “perfect world” and need “stockpiles” of these God-made nutrients for such a time as this.

We have access but it comes with some responsibility. Let me explain. I am going to provide you with a few links so that you can check out the rich information on these wonderful nano molecule nutrients obtained fully from deposits around the world. Instead of trying to explain the science, I’m listing below several resources and each of them have resources also so that you can delve as deeply as you wish into this important subject.

I will likely write about these again soon as I am personally taking Fulvic Acid (5 drops daily in my fresh made organic vegetable juice). The word of caution is that chlorinated water must be avoided with the intake of these powerful nutrients as is explained in some of the articles I link you to. I trust my home-made organic juice to be filtered by nature.

These minute (nano) nutrient molecules basically deliver tremendously powerful fully natural plant based and concentrated nutrients throughout our bodies ultimately making certain our bio-electric mechanisms are functioning fully—our energy for living functions if you will. We are, after all, electrical beings as well as chemical beings and, of course, spiritual beings.

Besides delivering the nutrient molecules to the most “remote corners” of our bodies and cellular make up, these molecules “carry out the trash” hidden there by chelating heavy toxins we’ve taken in through exposure to them in our food, water, and air. As I said in the opening paragraph of this post, I think you will want to learn more about humic and fulvic acids. Do Not Be Alarmed at the word acid just as you shouldn’t be alarmed at the words “fatty acids”. These are scientific terms and not “scare words” for those who realize we must maintain an alkaline body chemistry to be healthy.

Again, it is extremely important to realize that this “Godsend” is not something magic to throw on top of a poor diet and unhealthy lifestyle. Doing so would be like dumping ever more trash into a room as “good guys” are diligently working to clean that same room up even removing the tiniest bits of garbage.

Fulvic acid nutrients are tremendous health booster and restorer “good guys” or “workers” and they do the double duty of delivering needed molecules that have grown nearly impossible to obtain elsewhere AND, once the delivery is made to a cell, these “good guys” pick up and carry out the trash. That’s the way I’m beginning to “see the picture”.

I strongly encourage you to check it out for yourself and, again, prayerfully consider your choices regarding this relatively new information.  Also, please visit my other blog, for my latest post on the medicinal impact of our “healing touch” which is another aspect of our bio-electrical nature and health.
