thou wilt diligently harken to the voice of the Lord thy God, ...and wilt
give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of
these diseases upon thee"
15:26). The Baha'i Scriptures advised us to first
"search for the cause of disease" before
treating any illness,
(Star of the West, #8,
p.252, volume 13)
and explained that: "There are two causes for sickness; one is
material, the other spiritual. If the sickness is of the body, a material remedy
is needed, if it is of the soul, a spiritual remedy."
(AB, PT p.19).
"... the principal causes of disease are physical, for the human
body is composed of numerous elements, but in the
measure of an especial
equilibrium... if this essential balance... is disturbed ... disease will
(AB, SAQ p.257 ).
* Are you tired of just
continuously treating symptoms with toxic
chemicals that have harmful side effects?
* Wouldn't it make more sense to eliminate the underlying causes of
disease with safe foods,
herbs, and nutritional supplements that have been used safely and effectively
for thousands of years, and then become totally well?

health survey of the 79 major countries, reported that the US came in 79th. – as
the most unhealthy country
in the world! But we're number one in the amount of

the highest rates of

When I was searching
for answers to all the health problems I had, I found that just about every
thing I read on health contradicted
every thing else. So I turned to the Holy
Scriptures for guidance. I found that most of us are not following God's advice
because we don't know it or don't understand it. After carefully
examining the Words of God and comparing them to scientific
research and my own
experimentation, I was able to distinguish truth from error, to find the
underlying causes of various diseases,
and to find the remedies for all my
chronic illnesses, and achieve health and happiness. So I'd like to briefly
share information on
general causes of
many possible causes of health problems include:
Poor diet and nutritional deficiencies –
The Standard American Diet (SAD) consists of foods
grown in soils that are depleted of nutrients and poisoned with toxic chemicals,
and then highly processed and denatured.
Build up of toxic chemicals throughout the body - Man-made chemicals,
such as pesticides, cleaning products, paint, cosmetics,
factory emissions, air
pollution, chemicals in processed foods and tap water, anesthesia, and medicinal drugs, combine and accumulate in
the body and can cause
numerous health problems.
Genetically engineered foods
The Bible said: "Let the earth bring forth ...the herb yielding seed, and the
fruit tree yielding fruit after its kind, whose
seed is in itself…"
(Genesis, 1:11) and "Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a diverse
kind: " (Leviticus, 19:19).
Nowhere does it say it's
OK to add genes from a foreign species to a food crop or animal to produce a new
life form that contains
poison in every cell as the biotechnology companies are
Genetic engineering is a process by which a gene from a foreign species, such as
a bacterium, virus, fungus, or even a human, is
inserted into a plant or animal
using tumor-causing bacteria to get the gene into the desired cell, and then
using an infectious virus
to activate the gene. During this process the host's
DNA (as well as those that eat the host) can become scrambled, causing
development of harmful toxins. "Genetically
engineered foods have been shown to be a cause of allergies, severe chemical
sensitivities, obesity, arthritis, toxic reactions, blood disorders, respiratory
problems, diabetes, Parkinson's, ADHD, birth defects,
brain and nervous system
damage, and cancer" (Dr. L. Lynch, 2001, Health Hazards of Genetically
Engineered Foods, p. 1).
There are around 90 GM foods and animal feeds on the market, such as tomatoes,
soybeans, corn, wheat, rice, canola oil, cotton
seed oil, potatoes, cantaloupe,
papaya, crookneck yellow squash, beets, dairy products, alfalfa,, sugar,
artificial sweeteners and
flavorings, baker’s and Brewer’s yeasts, vitamins,
herbs, and some other nutritional supplements, tobacco, and medicinal drugs.
Genetically engineered ingredients can be found in about 80% of processed and
restaurant foods. But they refuse to label them, so
we have no way of knowing.
Clogged and coated intestinal tract - When we eat indigestible
substances such as animal products and wheat (gluten), they
coat the intestinal
tract and prevent the absorption of nutrients and disrupt the process of
Bacterial, viral and fungal infections -
In Deuteronomy 28:22
The Lord warns that those who do not observe all of His
statutes will be smitten with various infections - "consumption, fever,
inflammation, and with mildew
(a type of fungus);" and says that these
illnesses shall pursue them until they perish. Now, I don't think God is giving
illnesses as punishment, but is warning of the disease-causing foods
and life styles.
told Moses to advise against eating vinegar, moist grapes and raisons.
6:2,3) Why? (1) Vinegar is too acidic and
most illnesses are caused by an overly acidic body, (2) molds and mildew grow
in an acidic environment, in the vinegar, in a person
whose body is overly
acidic, and on moist grapes and on raisons especially. Mold is one of many
types of fungi. Fungi produce
poisonous chemicals that can damage any part of
the body, even the brain and nervous system. Fungal infections can be caused
only by foods containing mold, but by antibiotic drugs and cleaning products, by
anesthesia, by some other drugs, genetically
engineered foods, agricultural
chemicals, and by breathing mold in the air. When there is an overgrowth of
fungi in a person's body,
the immune system can be damaged, glands and organs
can be damaged, fatigue sets in, and the mind, moods, and behavior can be
negatively affected. And
the Bible, (Leviticus 14 in verses
34-57) even warns of the dangers of "a plague" of mold inside the walls
house, and tells how to remove it.
Glandular malfunctions can cause various
illnesses, such as in allergies, diabetes, hypoglycemia,
and/or thyroid problems.
Alcohol and tobacco
with toxic chemicals that damage glands and organs, the immune system, cause
and mood and behavioral problems.
warns, "Be not drunk with wine"
"Woe unto them that…follow strong drink"
Insufficient exercise, fresh air, and morning sunshine –
when we don't exercise enough, our muscles and joints
deteriorate, and our metabolism slows down, causing excess fat.

insomnia, and mood swings.
