Honoring the Temple of God – A Christian Health Perspective, a book by Bob McCauley, ND, owner of the Watershed Wellness Center in Lansing, MI, explains how our health is our own personal responsibility. He does so from a Christian perspective. Jesus speaks of the body as being the living temple of God and refers to his own body as a temple. His words are misunderstood, as was much of his message to those who lived in those times. Honoring the Temple of God Webpage and Spanish Version Webpage.
The Bible states that health and wellness is found with God. If your body is full of disease it is because of the choices you have made. All disease comes from our diet. Our genes have nothing to do with whether we get sick or not. Disease does not run in our families due to genetics, but rather dietary habits that tend to lead to many of the same diseases.
If we want to be healthy we must Hydrate, Alkalize and Detoxify (HAD) our body, which creates an environment of health within the body. Ionized Water is an antioxidant produced by electrolysis that Hydrates, Alkalizes and Detoxifies the body when consumed. Ionized Water is the healthiest substance we can put in the body because there is nothing better for us than water and there is no better water than ionized water.
The most common cause of disease is that people don not drink enough water, which leads to chronic cellular dehydration where the body s cells are unable to function to their capacity and serve the body as they are meant to.
Spirulina and Chlorella, two types of algae, are the healthiest, most powerful foods on Earth. They have the broadest array of nutrients and are the most nutrient dense of any whole foods. They are 60% protein and are what we should use for our protein instead of animal protein (meat, fish, eggs and dairy). The amino acids (protein) in Spirulina and Chlorella are vastly superior to those found in animal protein. They are also high in vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll and nucleic acids (RNA/DNA).
Living foods (raw, uncooked, unprocessed fruits and vegetables) should be consumed because they also Hydrate, Alkalize and Detoxify the body. Living foods are filled with enzymes, which only God is capable of creating. Everything we do as humans, whether we think, walk, talk, blink, etc, is the result of enzymatic reactions. Yet we constantly put cooked and processed foods in our body that are void of enzymes. The reason we eat cooked foods is because we like their taste and we are under the mistaken impression that they are healthy for us when in fact they are not.
Cooked foods should be considered an addiction because they are not healthy for us, yet most of us cannot stop consuming them. It is impractical to believe that we will change our diet overnight to one comprised exclusively of living foods. Instead, we must try to make them as much a part of our diet as possible. We must create new traditions with our friends and family that revolve around living foods that are created by God and have not had their invaluable nutrients destroyed by cooking and/or processing.
Probiotics are the friendly bacteria that we require to break down and absorb the nutrients we consume each day. They create vitamins in the body and help keep the digestive tract clean. They also help control harmful bacteria such as E-coli and H-pylori, which is the cause of stomach ulcers.
Minerals are critical to our health. Every bodily process depends on particular minerals Angstrom Minerals are the best way to get minerals in our body because of their incredibly small size.
We also must maintain a positive mental attitude if we wish to be healthy. If we allow negative thoughts to reside within our minds and heart, all the water and nutrition in the world will not be able to help us.
We should strive to have a meaningful relationship with God, which will be greatly enhanced when we honor the temple He has given us, that which we call our body. We do this by consuming Ionized Water, Spirulina and Chlorella, living foods, probiotics, minerals, by exercising and having a meaningful spiritual life and a close relationship with God. To accomplish this, we must learn to embrace the sacred principals of wisdom, knowledge, healing and faith if we expect to truly honor the temple God has given us.
