8 Laws of Health
God's Sunshine - Sunshine has several benefits to the body. It furnishes the natural Vitamin D and helps to lower cholesterol. Sunlight increases the volume of oxygen in the blood. Each person needs at least 30-45 minutes daily. The best time for sunbathing is 9-10 am and 4-6 PM.
Open Air - Pure fresh air is very important to our well being. Walking in forests and nature is great. Do some deep breathing exercises daily (breathe in 4 seconds, hold for 7 seconds, breath out for 9 seconds), this is very helpful in the morning. Even in winter have windows open a little and air rooms daily. Avoid unclean air.
Daily Exercise - Begin a program of walking outside, preferably 3 or 4 miles a day. Strive for a minimum of 20-30 minutes at least every other day. If you can’t go out, organic gardening is also great exercise for health.
Simple Trust - An abiding faith in our loving God will help you. He has made every provision to forgive and cleanse all our past mistakes. He will give power to break harmful addictions and help us overcome bitter and angry attitudes that ‘eat us up’ inside. If we are ‘Willing to be made willing’ He will work with us, take away our love for sinning and make us free in Him. Ask Him.
Proper Rest - Get adequate restful sleep; an early, light supper, well before bedtime and no eating before bed will help. A relaxing warm bath may help you unwind, avoid stressful and stimulating activities before bedtime. Regular times for going to bed and rising will also help. The best time to go to bed is at 9PM. Lack of restful sleep is for many the root of the ‘enervation’ that brings disease. For healing and cleansing to occur much rest and sleep is needed as these actions are done only while asleep.

Lots of Water - Your body is about 75% water. Lots of water is needed for optimal function. Every process in your body depends on the presence of adequate water. On arising squeeze a fresh lemon into two glasses (16 oz.) room temperature or warm water and drink it. Drink between meals: 2 hours after to 1/2 hour before, but do not drink with meals. Taking 2 glasses 1/2 hour before each meal, prevents mealtime thirst, aids digestion and prevents ulcers. Shower daily with cool or tepid water using a bath brush or good rough washcloth to rub your skin all over. This improves circulation and helps the body to get toxins out.
Always Temperance - Temperance is not only concerned with drinking alcohol or smoking; good health requires moderation and wise choices in all aspects of life. Over-eating, over-playing, over-working, and over-indulgence can all contribute to poor health. Abstain from all harmful indulgences; Tobacco, alcohol, coffee, tea (except herbal
tea), colas and soft drinks.
