This blog is a follow up to my earlier blog, God Says I Am Healed Yet Symptoms Persist. In this blog we will explore the topic of speaking life to our bodies as a means of sending symptoms into remission.
Restless leg syndrome started seven weeks after open heart surgery. I prayed for healing and then journaled and God has told me I was healed physically. Yet the symptoms of the infirmity persist. So now what do I do? Acknowledge I still have restless leg syndrome, or acknowledge that I’m healed?
As Malachi Talabi is working through one of our School of the Spirit modules, he was prompted to ask the Lord the following question:"Lord, what is going on with my family health wise? Do you have anything to say?"
There are so many conflicting diets on the market which often do help people that it can get very confusing trying to determine what you should and should not eat. Are there some common denominators that run through the best ones, things that I should be sure to focus on? The answer is “yes.”
Four days after leaving the hospital from my heart bypass surgery, I met for the first time with a nurse practitioner at the office of my “functional medicine” MD, Dr. Jose Fernandez who was recommended to me by my chiropractor. She told us to purchase a $30 blood pressure monitor and check my blood pressure morning and evening. I did. You can also purchase one from Amazon.
I saw it steadily going down, which concerned me. So I called the hospital where the surgery was performed and talked to the head nurse on the floor I was on. She informed me the first of the two numbers given in a blood pressure test is the number to be concerned about and it should not go below 90 (I was still at 92.) The first number (systolic) is your blood pressure when the heart beats and pressure is exerted in the arteries, and the second number (diastolic) is blood pressure between each heartbeat when the heart is at rest and not pumping blood into the arteries.
Satan is a thief who comes to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10). Facing surgery next Monday for the diagnosis of bladder cancer…much fear, doubt, pictures of my death, the laughter of others who have spoken evil things about me flash through my mind. I recognize them all from satan, the accuser, liar and thief. I renounce and rebuke demons of self pity, fear, doubt and unbelief.
My first choice is always prayer and nutrition. I believe that if you give your body the right tools to work with, it has been designed by God to heal itself. The right tools include great nutrition. I also believe that, in a crisis situation, pharmaceuticals can be a good stopgap measure.
Defining “heart” – Biblically speaking, “heart” is both the pump for your blood and the center of your soul or immaterial being. Just as your physical heart gives life to your physical body, your spiritual heart gives life to your spiritual body.
