My Checklist to Restore & Maintain My Health

Mark Virkler's picture

Below is my list of simple, orderly steps that I take when I get sick. It has hyperlinks which explain each protocol in detail. I have used them all successfully. I passionately pursue wholeness for several reasons: 1) Jesus paid a huge price to purchase my health with the stripes He bore at Calvary (Isa. 53:5), and I will not squander the price He paid, 2) I have a God-given destiny which I am eager to complete and 3) I desire to celebrate vibrant health in my golden years, and enjoy my great-grandchildren. The three keys to establishing and maintaining health are: 1) Detoxify the body, 2) Build the immune system, and 3) Nourish the cells, which are discussed in depth in our book Go Natural, and are summarized in the listings below.  Click here for my personal philosophy concerning health care.

The Bible Promotes BOTH Miracles AND Gifts of Healings

The three primary New Testament words translated "healing"

  1. Iaomai = instantaneous healing - I pray first for a miracle 
  2. Therapeua = process healing - I honor and use gifts of healings
  3. Sozo = healing involving spirit, soul & body - I seek to heal any dis-ease, which the Bible would consider to be any opposite of faith, hope, love, joy, laughter or peace in my heart. Healing occurs from the inside out.

Two of the above Greek words for healing are used by Paul in this one verse! 

Paul went in to see him and after he had prayed, he laid his hands on him and healedG2390 him (Iaomia – instantaneous). After this had happened, the rest of the people on the island who had diseases were coming to him and gettingG2323 curedG2323 (Therapeua – process healing). Acts 28:8,9 (NASB)

All healing involves releasing "energeo," God's healing energy

Here is the order of the steps I take when a health challenge arises for me

"God has appointed in the church, miracles, then gifts of healings(1 Cor. 12:28). 

When facing a health challenge I utilize the following steps: 1) Seek a miracle, 2) Apply gifts of healings (as listed below), and if necessary 3) Go to a holistic MD.

The lists below delineate the steps I take to restore my health

Each item below is: 1) compatible with Scripture, 2) has scientific research which supports it, and 3) has been proven effective in my life. You can make this your list by using it as is or subtracting, adding, or adjusting items as you desire. Make sure all methods you use are compatible with biblical principles. The checklist below dovetails with the book Vibrant Health! Miracles PLUS Gifts of Healings

I Begin by Seeking a MIRACLE (Iaomia in the Greek) Through Any of These Approaches

  1. Unleashing Healing Power Through Spirit Born Emotions
  2. Miracles of Healing - 7 Step Model
  3.  Healing Soaking Prayer Session plus Healing Scriptures - be grateful and be at peace
  4.  A Healing Encounter or Miracle Service
  5.  A Healing Meditation
  6. The "Word of Faith" Model
  7. The "Prayers That Heal the Heart" Model
  8. Mountain Moving Faith

I ADD GIFTS OF HEALINGS (Therapeua in the Greek) - Activities Which Promote Health

  1. ___ Make food my medicine. Here is a powerful TEDX Testimony showing the Genesis diet heals, even things as serious as progressive multiple sclerosis. The Genesis diet reverses heart disease (Gen. 1:29; Dan. 1:12) and heart doctors recommend the Genesis diet. Daniel chose not to defile his body with the kings rich food (Dan. 1:8). Consume a healthy organic diet (greater nutrition and less toxins). Avoid GMO foods - man doesn't know enough to re-create God's foods.
  2. ___ Consume a food-based, complete multivitamin. We love Patriot Power and Sports Formula. We combine a scoop of each into 8 ounces of water. 
  3. ___ Take antioxidants – Pycnogenol, Vitamin C and Vitamin E, Vitamin DProtandim
  4. ___ Avoid microwaved foods - it mutilates the atomic structure of foods
  5. ___ Digestive health - Maximize digestion by consuming enzymes, probiotics, Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar, chewing each bite 25 times and minimize drinking at meals. Make sure my stomach is acidic enough to properly digest food. Since blood type "A" people tend to need an HCL supplement, I need HCL. HCL declines with age, especially when over 60. I need 1 capsule with a snack, 2 with a light meal, and 3 - 4 with a full meal. If you take too much, the result is loose stools.
  6. ___  Resolve leaky gut issues
  7. ___ Fastingcleanses and colon health are all crucial to maintaining health.
  8. ___ Pursue a good night’s rest & a lifestyle of resting in Christ’s all-consuming power
  9. ___ Give the body time to heal - God has programmed my body to heal itself
  10. ___ Take the Lord’s Supper, believing for God's healing grace to touch me 
  11. ___ Pray in tongues - it produces a 35% increase in your immune system
  12. ___ Gather with elders to confess sins and anoint with oil (James 5:14-18)
  13. ___ Heal Emotional Roots to Diseases by Clearing Cellular Memories
  14. ___ Do "Tapping" - Emotional Freedom Technique, releasing toxic emotions
  15. ___ Do interval training exercise plus move more and sit less during each day
  16. ___ Establish proper weight - stop eating when 80% full, eat slow and ONLY when hungry and chew well.
  17. ___ Install water filters for drinking water and showers
  18. ___ Maintain pure air – purchase air purifiers or open windows
  19. ___ Use non-toxic household products
  20. ___ Use this device to enhance blood flow by 30% throughout your body. 
  21. ___ Remove mercury amalgams and root canals as they trap poisons and infections
  22. ___ Use colloidal silver to combat infections
  23. ___ Use herbs - One excellent herb company is Nature’s Sunshine
  24. ___ Homeopathic remedies (Documentary on water containing memory and more research showing that water has memory)
  25. ___ Receive chiropractic care such as Maximized Living and Active Release Technique practitioners
  26. ___ Use EMF shields - protect my electrical body from foreign man-made waves
  27. ___ Use essential oils - Discover products here; Enjoy Books: Healing Oils of the Bible and The Complete Aromatherapy and Essential Oils Handbook for Everyday Wellness
  28. ___ Steps I would take if I discovered I had cancer
  29. ___ Use the cancer fighting Budwig Diet
  30. ___ Limit vaccines and detox from those I have received
  31. ___ Learn and use the Buteyko Breathing Method if having breathing problems (Recommended by a friend but not personally used in my life)
  32. ___ Heal Dissociative Identity Disorder if severely traumatized (Observed positive impact in those whom I have counseled)

Diagnostic Tools I Use For Discovering Root Contributors And Trusted Websites

  1. I do research on trusted health websites: I begin by gaining information concerning the possible root causes of the health situation I am seeking to resolve. I use the "search" feature on these trusted health websites (typing in the name of your issue): Mercola website (Use Internet Explorer), GreenMedInfoLife Extension websiteLife Works Wellness CenterAmazing Health AdvancesBaseline of HealthDr. Al SearsGlobal Healing Center and CWG Ministries and Organixx. These are all websites I love, trust and use and I also do searches from PubMed. I do not require a double-blind scientific study to prove truth, as the Bible nowhere states that a double blind study is required for obtaining truth. I avoid websites which call people names or demonstrate pride or scorn, as that violates God's command to honor (1 Pet. 2:17).
  2. I discern what my personal situation is: Once I have a knowledge base of possible root causes, and steps of actions which could resolve the issue, I gain specific guidance through Muscle Response Testing (or the Compass) and from divine revelation using two-way journaling and dreams which I record and act on. Other tools I hope to purchase soon include: Quest 4 or Zyto Elite.
  3. I gather ideas from friends: I share my health need with friends and honor God's guidance through their suggestions. I read books on the topic, or enroll in online training which I discover from my searches on the above trusted websites.
  4. I use online consulting services:
  • A Board Certified Naturopathic Doctor, Dr. Kimberly Fiucci, has a practice focusing on biblical health care and can help me determine the best Nature’s Sunshine herbs for various situations.
  • Counselors for emotional healing are listed here.
  1. I seek out a holistic MD - I ask a respected chiropractor in my area for a recommendation. Life Extension provides free phone consultation from their trained Health Advisors at 1-800-226-2370. I have located an outstanding holistic practitioner within a 2 hour drive that I go to as necessary. 
  • The diagnostic tools of the medical profession are excellent. They include comprehensive blood testing, saliva testing, stool testing CAT scans, MRI's, EEG's and EKGs, to name a few. I can accept their diagnosis but not their prognosis.
  • If they say, "I have six months to live,” or “There is no cure for this disease,” I will break off those word curses and in Jesus' name, rebuke all demons associated with it. Then I will find God's solution for the issue. Having a good diagnosis DOES give me have a better understanding of the area I need to process using prayer, nutrition, and God’s emotions of joy, peace, love and laughter.
  1. I utilize Life Line Screening services to insure my body is maintaining good health.
  2. The coating on my tongue can tell me a lot about my health. Here are several insightful articles: Article 1, Article 2, Article 3, Article 4.
  3. Vitamin D Testing Kit - article and testing kit for purchase.

Twelve Weeks to Spiritual Mastery - Group Coaching

A group coaching experience with Mark Virkler

Because I could not find a Spirit-anointed teacher/coach, I spent ten extremely frustrating years seeking to hear God’s voice!!! Suggestions offered did not help me, things like: “You just know that you know. It is a still small voice. He speaks from your heart.” No one could give me the answer I needed which was: Hearing God’s voice is as simple as quieting yourself down, fixing your eyes on Jesus, recognizing His voice as spontaneous, flowing thoughts and writing down His flow as it is coming. Test what you have written after the flow is done, NOT while it is occurring.

Counseled by God

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 146 Pages

Have you ever been defeated by negative emotions such as anger, fear, guilt, inferiority, condemnation or depression? Have you tried to fight them off unsuccessfully? Is there an answer that is deeper than simply trying to mentally reason yourself out of these emotions? Is there a way that Jesus can speak a word of life into the depths of your emotional despair and bring healing on a deep level? Is there a form of Christian counseling that begins and ends with the movement of Christ within your heart, rather than simply with the words of man?
