Recently I’ve made the decision to make a small investment in my health by purchasing some essential oils. I’ve been so excited to see and feel immediate results so I thought I’d share a little something.
I know that the change to go natural is what God intended and what benefits my body the most. God speaks in the beginning about what He was giving us when He created the earth in the first 7 days.
Genesis 1:29-30 New King James Version (NKJV)
29 And God said, “See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. 30 Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food”; and it was so.
So God tells us that He’s given us every green herb for food. Now obviously not everything that is green is able to be consumed or digested however I believe that all plant life has a purpose and many of the plant life that we see around us and across the globe have properties in them that are beneficial for food, medicine, health and wellbeing. So to me it’s a no brainer to go natural and to start steering away from the toxic chemicals that we have been conditioned to have in our lives plus it makes sense to me from a biblical stand point.
Genesis 9:3 New King James Version (NKJV)
3 “Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. I have given you all things, even as the green herbs.”
In Genesis 9:3, God was speaking to Noah after the flood and said to go into all the earth and multiply and be fruitful and again God mentions green herbs as well as animals to eat.
So much of our homes and environment has become so toxic, everything is substituted for cheap, fake and low budget alternatives made in labs and factories that do absolutely nothing for our wellbeing right down from our clothing, bedding, furniture, household goods that radiate electronic sound waves through the atmosphere to the very food that we put in our bodies.
So what can we do about this? We can educate ourselves about our bodies and natural therapies and medicine.
I in no way will discredit the pharmaceutical companies or the amazing benefits of modern medicine. There is a time and place for it and modern medicine and pharmaceutical drugs save lives. The down side is that we have developed a dependency on chemical drugs and doctors and lost the art of listening to our bodies and using our natural environment and natural alternatives to heal us.
I truly believe that a wise balance of natural and modern medicine is a great way to live.
I consider myself to be a mostly healthy, fit and happy individual. I praise God that I hardly have any illness or any problems with my health and do not take many pharmaceutical drugs.
The only drugs I take is the contraceptive pill to help moderate my menstrual cycle and to assist with excess bleeding and cramps and I thank God for those. However, I hope to one day come off of them and I hope to explore more natural and plant based treatment, I believe it’s possible.
Apart from that, I may take some pain killers when I’m menstruating or when I get back pain. Again, I’d like to explore more natural remedies.
My goal is to be healthy from the inside out spiritually, physically and emotionally.
Our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 New King James Version (NKJV)
19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? 20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.
I believe Jesus is coming back for a glorious bride. I also believe that God desires us to look after our bodies. We must be living examples of Christ, to represent Christ, the church, our families and God well.
The world must look at us and see that we are healthy spiritually and physically and we must look good.
At the end of the day, we must do what we feel is the best for our bodies.
Making changes can be challenging, however I feel that with the right research, study and advice, we can all make small changes to our routines and lifestyles to be more chemical and toxic free and eventually be happier and healthier so that we can do what God has called us to do.
This is why I’ve made the decision to make a progression into natural health and wellbeing.
If you’d like to learn more then I’d love to share with you about what I’ve discovered with using natural essential oils.
So below is a picture I took earlier this morning of this new delicious drink I have come across. It’s basically warm water (make sure it’s not boiling hot or it will disturb the properties of the oils) with a teaspoon of honey and 1 drop each of lemon and frankincense oil. It’s so delicious, add more honey for flavour, or you can just enjoy the honey with lemon only or frankincense only. A little goes a very long way!!! 1 drop is more than enough. Add more honey if you’re a sweetie 😉
