What exactly does it mean to "Manage Health Naturally?"
It seems self-explanatory right, but is it?
I will take each word and give the definition of it, I know, everyone knows the definitions, but occasionally it is good to visit the actual definition again. These definitions are from the Oxford online dictionary and I will only share the meat of the definition for sake of space.
1 [ with obj. ] be in charge of,
• administer and regulate (resources under one's control): we manage our cash extremely well.
• have the position of supervising
2 [ no obj. ] succeed in surviving or in attaining one's aims,
As you can see to manage something is to take control and regulate resources to succeed in surviving to attain one's aims.
the state of being free from illness or injury:
• a person's mental or physical condition:
To be healthy one must be free from illness, injury and it includes the mental and physical condition but I also would add the "spiritual" state of being as well.
1 existing in or caused by nature; not made or caused by humankind
2 of or in agreement with the character or makeup of, or circumstances surrounding, someone or something
3 [ attrib. ] (of a parent or child) related by blood: such adopted children always knew who their natural parents were.
4 Music (of a note) not sharped or flatted: [ postpositive, in combination ] : the bassoon plays G-natural instead of A-flat.
5 Christian Theology relating to earthly or unredeemed human or physical nature as distinct from the spiritual or supernatural realm.
Therefore, to Manage Health Naturally one must:
Take control and regulate resources to be free from illness, which includes one's mental and physical condition by utilizing what exists in or caused by nature; not that which is made or caused by humankind.
How does one begin to know where to start in this upside down world we find ourselves? Well, it could seem like a daunting task if we did not know where to start, but I do, and I will share what has and is being given to me.
Let's take a look at this clue, it is in the word natural (ly) which is derived from "nature". Who is the Creator of nature?
Yes, the first place to start is our Creator. The Maker of our bodies, the great Designer that made us fearfully and wonderfully in His image.
A manufacturer always provides an Owner's Manual, right? Well, when all else fails, read the directions!
Our Creator did not make a mistake in our design. We are making the mistake in letting "humankind" take control of our health instead of us taking control and managing the care of our very first place of residency, which is our body! We can live on the street with no place to lay our head but if we no longer have our body, well, you know what that means. It isn't just about length of life, because only Almighty God knows how much time we have on this earth, but it is about the "quality" of our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual being until He calls us home.
Learn to listen to your Creator, this is absolutely the first place to start. It was revealed to me during my first spiritual fast. All my education in all area's of life, including my natural health education was in vain without the Lord's annointing of the Holy Spirit. The annointing of the spirit from Almighty God is the difference because now I do all by the strength of Christ instead of my own strength which falls short quite regularly and was a daily struggle.
I now understand this scripture:
"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." Philippians 4:13
