Many people post overly simplified advice to serious medical problems

In fact I do too often hear stupid people boast, younger or healthy people,  they do not take any medication at all as they do not want to load their bodies with all that chemicals.


To which I reply someday in your own life you will have a sickness and you will in desperation look for any cure next, medication included..In fact one of these false boaster had next a heart attack and has gone downhill fast.. He is now running to all the doctors for help..


Those who are depressed are more likely to exhibit risky behavior with drugs and alcohol, as well as being more likely to attempt suicide. In fact, are more associated with a shorter lifespan than the smokers. .The standard course of treatment for depression is questionable medication. Often it takes a combination of two or more different medications to mask, control the symptoms, and it is a trial and error approach to find the right combination for each patient. When medicine has been tried and doesn’t work then generally nothing can help cause doctors are not really dealing with the basic causes of the depression. Depressed people will thus face a hard life. To Help with many person’s medical symptoms of their diseases, depressions too we still do often we may still have to deal with the root causes of the sicknesses too.. including the hypertension, stresses, anxieties, and our past wrong values, ignorance, wrong doings too.

A supposed help to treat diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is a disease in which your pancreas does not produce enough insulin, or your body does not properly use the insulin it makes.

*Get some discipline in your life, eat meals regularly, and  drink plenty of water. I cannot believe the number of seniors who live on feelings, they eat and drink only when they want too… Skipping meals is still bad for you. Avoid Chronic Dehydration as it is bad for you..








If it was God’s will for us to stay sick then why would God allow the   Hospitals to be built, or why would Jesus himself now cure the sick   people.
(Heb 13:8 KJV)  Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for   ever
(Heb 13:12 KJV)  Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the   people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.13 Let us go forth   therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.14  For here   have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.14 By him therefore let us   offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our   lips giving thanks to his name. 16  But to do good and to communicate   forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased
(James 5:13 KJV)  Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any   merry? let him sing psalms
(James 5:14 KJV)  Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders   of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name   of the Lord:15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall   raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
(James 5:16 KJV)  Confess your faults one to another, and pray one   for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a   righteous man availeth much
(James 5:17 KJV)  Elias was a man subject to like passions as we   are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the   earth by the space of three years and six months
(James 5:18 KJV)  And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and   the earth brought forth her fruit
(James 5:19 KJV)  Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and   one convert him;20 Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the   error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of   sins
What we all need to do is to obey, follow after the word of God and   not rather try to explain it away..
(Acts 10:38 KJV)  How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy   Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were   oppressed of the devil; for God was with him
(Isa 53:5 KJV)  But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was   bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and   with his stripes we are healed.6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have   turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of   us all.
Some of the  distorted preachers, even   Pentecostals do too often do teach that any  Christian should not be sick   at all and that we can always immediately claim our sickness healing by faith   and God will always heal us. They seem too easily to forget that  a   temporary human sickness can temporary serve God’s purposes.  But also   yet the Fundamentals Evangelicals too now also go overboard denying that any   healing tend to exist today as well. Relatedly as Jesus himself had said   this is not always the case..  sickness can exist for the glory of God   too. But it is still always God will to deliver us from all evil, all   sicknesses now too.. and how and when he God chooses to do so is his   prerogative.
Relatedly now a  too common Pentecostal Word Faith teaching is   that it is solely, always  your own personal fault for being sick.. THAT IS NOT ALWAYS TRUE NOW.
  This false teaching of sin being the cause of all sickness can also   be found in Hinduism as well.  They teach that it is because of your own   lack of faith and/or knowledge, unconfessed sins if you are sick or   poor.   This unloving, cruel and unbiblical teaching does not come   from God but from Satan who distorted God’s basic truths on healing. Can you   imagine the gall of anyone, even a false elder, pastor, unlovingly trying to   tell a person to their face that the reason their daughter sick is because of   their lack of faith?  or that God is punishing them of their own sin? Can   you imagine the cruelty in telling a person bound to a wheelchair that if they   had enough “faith” they would  surely  “Rise and be healed?”
But what does the Bible say about it, teach.
Most of the problem with the clear Christian teaching   discrepancies on Healing and Sickness is due firstly to the real personal   ignorance of what the Bible teaches even about Healing. Most Christian people   wrongfully rely mainly on some famous preacher who is pro or con to healing   and Not on God and his Word firstly. Many people have their mind made up   beforehand anyway and are not honestly open to the subjects and they thus tend   use out of context bible verses, the preachers quotations to try to suit,   substantiate their own pet views.. they need to read these   verses.
(Mat 8:7 KJV)  And Jesus saith unto him, I   will come and heal him.
(Mat 10:1 KJV)  And when he had called   unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to   cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of   disease.
(Mat 10:8 KJV)  Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise   the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
(Mat   12:10 KJV)  And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And   they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they   might accuse him.
(Mat 13:15 KJV)  For this people’s heart is   waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have   closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their   ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I   should heal them.
(Mark 3:15 KJV)  And to have power to heal   sicknesses, and to cast out devils:
(Luke 4:18 KJV)  The Spirit of   the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the   poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the   captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that   are bruised
Many people want to know why the miracles of Christ are not abounding   today.. the answer is quite simple.
(Mat 13:57 KJV)  And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto   them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own   house.
(Mat 13:58 KJV)  And he did not many mighty works there because of   their unbelief.
(Gal 3:5 KJV)  He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and   worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the   hearing of faith?
(Mat 15:28 KJV)  Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman,   great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was   made whole from that very hour.
(Mat 21:21 KJV)  Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say   unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is   done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou   removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. 22  And all   things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
(Mark 2:5 KJV)  When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of   the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.
(Mark 10:52 KJV)  And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith   hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed   Jesus in the way.
(Mark 11:22 KJV)  And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in   God.
(Acts 20:21 KJV)  Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the   Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
(Rom 10:17 KJV)  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the   word of God.
(James 1:6 KJV)  But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he   that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.7 For   let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. 8   A   double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
(John 12:37 KJV)  But though he had done so many miracles before   them, yet they believed not on him:
When praying for a believer’s  healing, which is the children’s   bread,  as per the book of James the sick person has also to confess and   also to repent of  their sins, admit their own causes of the   illness..
(John 5:13 KJV)  And he that was healed wist not who it was: for   Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place.14 Afterward   Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made   whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.
(1 Cor 10:21 KJV)  Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup   of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of   devils.
(John 8:11 KJV)   And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn   thee: go, and sin no more.
(1 Cor 11:27 KJV)  Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and   drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood   of the Lord. 28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that   bread, and drink of that cup. 29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily,   eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.   30  For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many   sleep.31  For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.   32  But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should   not be condemned with the world
Prayer and fasting for deliverance though is also needed
(Mat 17:18 KJV)  And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of   him: and the child was cured from that very hour. 19  Then came the   disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? 20    And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you,   If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain,   Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be   impossible unto you.21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and   fasting.
(1 Cor 10:13 KJV)  There hath no temptation taken you but such as is   common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted   above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to   escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
(Phil 4:19 KJV)  But my God shall supply all your need according to   his riches in glory by Christ Jesus
(Psa 34:18 KJV)  The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken   heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.19 Many are the afflictions   of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.20 He keepeth   all his bones: not one of them is broken
(Psa 51:16 KJV)  For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give   it: thou delightest not in burnt offering. 17 The sacrifices of God are a   broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not   despise
(Rev 21:3 KJV)  And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying,   Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and   they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their   God.4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no   more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain:   for the former things are passed away.5   And he that sat upon the throne   said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these   words are true and faithful.
(Heb 10:38 KJV)  Now the just   shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure   in him
Only REAL Christians can firstly  by faith confess God’s healing   promises…
(Isa 53:5 KJV)  But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was   bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and   with his stripes we are healed
A person can confess this verse all they want and yet they will not   be healed if they do not respect, follow the rest of God’s conditions.. what   there are more conditions? yes read the verse afterwards also for a   start
(Isa 53:6 KJV)   All we like sheep have gone astray; we have   turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of   us all.
this following verses says we have to also humbly repent, confess our   sins so do the next ones.
(James 5:14 KJV)  Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders   of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name   of the Lord:15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall   raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
(James 5:16 KJV)  Confess your faults one to another, and pray one   for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a   righteous man availeth much.
(Psa 51:17 KJV)  The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken   and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. (1 Pet 3:4 KJV)  But   let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even   the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great   price
One cannot pray for personally healing and have unrepented sins still   in one’s life
.     >
(James 5:12 KJV)  But above all things, my brethren, swear not,   neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let   your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation
(James 5:13 KJV)  Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any   merry? let him sing psalms. 14 Is any sick among you? let him call for   the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil   in the name of the Lord:15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and   the Lord  16  Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for   another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous   man availeth much. 17 Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are,   and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth   by the space of three years and six months.18  And he prayed again, and   the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit. 19 Brethren, if   any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; 20   Let him know,   that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a   soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.
(1 Cor 11:26 KJV)  For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this   cup, ye do show the Lord’s death till he come.27  Wherefore whosoever   shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be   guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. 28 But let a man examine   himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 29  For   he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to   himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. 30  For this cause many are weak   and sickly among you, and many sleep. 31 For if we would judge ourselves,   we should not be judged. 32  But when we are judged, we are chastened of   the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.
Many times after even a still UNrepentant pastor slanders me someone will   phone me and say did you know the pastor is now seriously   sick.
(Mat 5:22 KJV)  But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his   brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever   shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but   whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.23 Therefore   if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother   hath ought against thee; 24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy   way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. 25   Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest   at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver   thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.26 Verily I say unto thee,   Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost   farthing
I REALLY DO also  believe in PERSONALLY appropriating,   claiming for ourselves  God’s word  by faith, the specific    word that God has specifically given to us. For God to speak to us we do   need to be in a valid relationship with Him, His Son Jesus, the Holy Spirt,   his Word as well.. and we need to listen to what he personally is telling us   what to do..(John 10:27 KJV)  My sheep hear my voice, and I know   them, and they follow me:(Jer 6:16 KJV)  Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in   the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk   therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not   walk therein. (Isa 30:21 KJV)  And thine ears shall hear a word behind   thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand,   and when ye turn to the left
(2 Cor 13:1 KJV)   In the mouth of two or three   witnesses shall every word be established
I also still very tired of false preachers taking   isolated words of the Bible and trying to build a major doctrine, lifestyle   around it.. even those who say  there is “power in our words”
The power is not in our words, not at all,  the power is   always ONLY in God’s words and what God says will happen if we follow after   God’s Word or what will happen to us by God’s power if we reject God’s word to us
Man too often tries to make himself the center of attention,   to exaggerate his self importance and his capabilities.. without God we are   nothing and always will be nothing
(2 Cor 4:7 KJV)  But we have this treasure in earthen   vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. 8    We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but   not in despair; 9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;   10  Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that   the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. 11 For we which   live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of   Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh. 12  So then death   worketh in us, but life in you
Some they say there is power in our words,  and they use   vain repetition trying to make things happen, they have wrongfully turned   their eyes of God and onto themselves.
(Mat 6:7 KJV)  But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions,   as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much   speaking
(Mark 7:7 KJV)  Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching   for doctrines the commandments of men
Valid Positive confession is confessing the word of God given   PERSONALLY  to us.. (Rom 10:17 KJV)  So then faith cometh by   hearing, and hearing by the word of God
(Rom 14:23 KJV)  And he that doubteth is damned if he eat,   because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin
We also cannot perform a miracle any time we want, nor can we   just claim any Bible verse, for God is always sovereign, in charge, not   us.
Even Jesus could not do what he wanted to, he was always   dependent on what  the Father said he could do.. (John 5:19 KJV)    Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The   Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what   things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise
(Mat 8:16 KJV)  When the even was come, they brought unto   him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his   word, and healed all that were sick: 17 That it might be fulfilled which was   spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare   our sicknesses
(James 5:14 KJV)  Is any sick among you? let him call for   the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil   in the name of the Lord: 15  And the prayer of faith shall save the sick,   and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be   forgiven him. 16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another,   that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man   availeth much
(Isa 53:5 KJV)  But he was wounded for our transgressions,   he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him;   and with his stripes we are healed
(Acts 4:10 KJV)  Be it known unto you all, and to all the   people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye   crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here   before you whole. 11  This is the stone which was set at nought of you   builders, which is become the head of the corner.12  Neither is there   salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among   men, whereby we must be saved. 13  Now when they saw the boldness of   Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they   marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with   Jesus.
(Luke 8:2 KJV)  And certain women, which had been healed of   evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven   devils,
note above here that evil spirits and infirmities are two   separate items here.
(Luke 7:21 KJV)  And in that same hour he cured many of   their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were   blind he gave sight
Note the above word many.. it is not the word   all..
(Rom 15:1 KJV)  We then that are strong ought to bear the   infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves
 Some people still   wrongfully do look for false reasons not to help any others, they falsely even   do delegate wrong reasons for the others being poor  or sick now as   well and thus wrongfully excuse themselves from not personally helping them ..   sadly some Christians,  some, pastors included.  I have met many   professing Christian persons who wrongfully teach even that all sickness is   caused by a  personal mental problem,  or they do wrongfully teach   that one has power within oneself to heal oneself… or that all sickness   is only demonic in cause, needing only a spiritual cure..   and none   of this is in accordance to the Bible, or what God teaches us now as   well.
(Rom 8:26 KJV)  Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our   infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the   Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be   uttered. 27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of   the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the   will of God. 28 And we know that all things work together for good to   them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose
God alone has power to heal us, we never do not have any of   this power in us.. this power is in God to use as God wills and not in us   still too…
(2 Cor 12:9 KJV)  And he said unto me, My grace is   sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly   therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may   rest upon me.10  Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches,   in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I   am weak, then am I strong
(2 Cor 4:7 KJV)  But we have this treasure in earthen   vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us
(2 Cor 4:8 KJV)  We are troubled on every side, yet not   distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 Persecuted, but not   forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; 10   Always bearing about in the   body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made   manifest in our body
I have already made it personally clear that all sickness is   not demonic in cause.. some sickness also does have real physical causes.. and   it is for that reasons that God has not said that we should not go to any   doctors.. rather what God has said was that we should not go to Doctors’ first   for our healing.. we need to go to God first in prayer, and he God can next   choose to heal us directly or tell us to go to a doctor   next
My own daughter was miraculously healed of a very   serious sickness without any doctor then helping her.. at that time there was   no available medical help for her sickness as well.. but next God told me to   take my son for surgery to remove a cyst. I asked God why? if he could heal my   daughter then why did my son have to go for surgery.. God clearly said to me I   work through people as well, even through doctors and what they cannot do God   will next do for me.
Note this historic fact most of the major hospitals, even   major educational institutions were originally founded by Christians who cared   about the good welfare of others
(Luke 10:30 KJV)  And Jesus answering said, A certain man   went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped   him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.   31  And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he   saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32  And likewise a Levite, when   he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other   side.  33  But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he   was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, 34  And went to him,   and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own   beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. 35  And on the   morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and   said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I   come again, I will repay thee. 36  Which now of these three, thinkest   thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? 37  And he   said, He that showed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou   likewise.
(Mark 9:41 KJV)  For whosoever shall   give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ,   verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward
(John 17:1 KJV)  These words spake Jesus, and     lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify     thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:
Some persons,   preachers they do say there is power in our words, in our verbal positive   confession, using only positive words, that is not really the truth, rather   the power always  is in God  only.
For instance if we   are always going around  worrying, expressing about  our fears so   next these things  they  will likely next happen to us, not because   we have confessed the  words of fears, but because  God will want   to show to us how he can and we will through us overcome the things we believers.. we as committed believer sin God are not allowed the   luxury of defeat.. we will be overcomers over our fears too.. and thus we will   learn that (Phil 4:13 KJV)  I can do all things through Christ which   strengtheneth me.
(Rev 12:11 KJV)  And they overcame him   by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved   not their lives unto the death.
Take for example   Job who said (Job 3:25 KJV)  For the thing which I greatly feared is   come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.  he learned   that he could next be victorious over what he feared as well..
(Job 42:12 KJV)  So the LORD blessed   the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand   sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand   she asses. 13  He had also seven sons and three daughters.14  And he   called the name of the first, Jemima; and the name of the second, Kezia; and   the name of the third, Kerenhappuch.15 And in all the land were no women found   so fair as the daughters of Job: and their father gave them inheritance among   their brethren.16 After this lived Job an hundred and forty years, and saw his   sons, and his sons’ sons, even four generations.17  So Job died, being   old and full of days.
We all also do need   to confess personally  more what Jesus has already done for us, such as   by his stripes we were healed too, and not what we think bad can or will   happen to us.. The only valid Positive confession is what Jesus has done for   us and those words that God has personally told us we can claim by   faith..
A house divided against itself cannot   stand (Mark 3:25)  applies to    Churches, and our homes, and our marriages too.


(1 Ki   8:28 KJV)  Yet have thou respect unto the prayer of thy servant, and to   his supplication, O LORD my God, to hearken unto the cry and to the prayer,   which thy servant prayeth before thee to day:
(2 Chr   6:19 KJV)  Have respect therefore to the prayer of thy servant, and to   his supplication, O LORD my God, to hearken unto the cry and the prayer which   thy servant prayeth before thee:
(Psa   102:17 KJV)  He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise   their prayer.
(Prov   15:8 KJV)  The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but   the prayer of the upright is his delight.
(Prov   15:29 KJV)  The LORD is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of   the righteous.
(James   5:15 KJV)  And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord   shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven   him.


The   Basics by Dr. Gary S. Greig   Dr. Mark Virkler   Rev.   Frank Gaydos John G. Lake Ministries, Pennsylvania Healing Rooms Ministry   Director
Basic Statements:
1) Focus on God, His word, his promises, Jesus, not on   yourself or the others at all, do forget everything else, worship Him,   God,  Jesus alone…
(Gen 20:17 KJV)  So Abraham   prayed unto God: and God healed Abimelech, and his wife, and his maidservants;   and they bare children.
Take   the initial step.. start a ongoing relation with Jesus through your ongoing   personal prayer, communication with God.
It is not God’s ability to heal others too that is the   key  issue but clearly our own personal lack of unpracticed faith, our   own lack of prayer.. for we are firstly too secular, too worldly minded too   often to be used spiritual by God. .
(Eccl 3:11 KJV)  He hath made   every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart,   so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the   end.
(Mat 6:24 KJV)  No man can   serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or   else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and   mammon.
(1 John 2:15 KJV)  Love not the   world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world,   the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the   lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of   the Father, but is of the world. 17  And the world passeth away, and the   lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
(Mark 3:27 KJV)  No man can   enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first   bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.
(Rev 3:8 KJV)  I know thy   works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it:   for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my   name.
 2) As an obedient, humble, faithful servant of God   continually daily do Ask God  by faith  for the Holy Spirit’s power   to be released, to see it, and do beforehand by faith thank God for it .   Promise and give God all, all of the credit for the healings, miracles, works   of God, do not take any, any of it for yourself, for it will be deadly for   your own spirituality next if you do.. Pride still is a deadly   sin.
(Psa 51:17 KJV)  The sacrifices   of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt   not despise.
(Isa 8:15 KJV)  And many among   them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be   taken.
(Ezek 34:16 KJV)  I will seek   that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind   up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick: but I will   destroy the fat and the strong; I will feed them with judgment
(2 Cor 4:7 KJV)  But we have   this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of   God, and not of us. 8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed;   we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast   down, but not destroyed; 10  Always bearing about in the body the dying   of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our   body.
(James 4:3 KJV)  Ye ask, and   receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.4 Ye   adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is   enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the   enemy of God.5 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that   dwelleth in us lusteth to envy? 6  But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he   saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
3) Rely on the direct input from the Holy Spirit, listen to   him before you do even next pray, Engage the Prayer-type that the Spirit leads   you to pray..
(John 5:19 KJV)  Then answered   Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do   nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he   doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.
(John 15:5 KJV)  I am the vine,   ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth   forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
(2 Cor 13:8 KJV)  For we can do   nothing against the truth, but for the truth.
4) Dipstick (Check   personally for the full filling of the  Oil of the Holy Spirit) and   Remove the personal Blocks
(1 John 1:9 KJV)  If we confess   our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us   from all unrighteousness.
The   Confession of sins, restitution might be first required by the person being   prayed for as well.
 (James 5:14 KJV)  Is any   sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray   over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: 15 And the prayer of   faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have   committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.16  Confess your faults one to   another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual   fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
5) Next do hold in your   mind  the detailed faith-picture of the person healed as given to you by   God , and do not waver, do continue to thank God soley for it
(James 1:6 KJV)  But let him   ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea   driven with the wind and tossed. 7 For let not that man think that he shall   receive any thing of the Lord. 8  A double minded man is unstable in all   his ways.
6) Differentiate between a miracle and a healing.. Miracles   are instantaneously while Healing my have a time element.. but all healings,   miracles too  can be certified by medical   doctors.
7) By faith in God hold on to the healing recognizing that   false symptoms counterfeit by the devil can come next instead and cause you to   doubt, even to lose your healing.
(John 5:14 KJV)  Afterward   Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made   whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.
(John 5:15 KJV)  The man   departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him   whole.
(John 8:11 KJV)   And   Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no   more.
Expanded   Statement:
1) See Jesus transfigured in God’s   light (Matt. 17:1-8), forget yourself, and  worship Him in your spirit.   (Bib. Found. sec. III-IV)
2) Ask for and   see Jesus’ divine healing light and power radiating onto and  into the   person; see it focused on the infirmity, and thank the Lord  that the   anointing is being released and coming in. (Bib. Found. sec.  III,VI-VII)
3) Engage the prayer-type that the   Spirit leads you to–petition, command,  or pronouncement; if led by the   Spirit to use command prayer, you may  first  command the pain to   leave in Jesus’ name, then command the underlying  disease to leave. (see   Healing Prayer Outline)
4) Ask the person how they feel   (better, same, worse), and remove any  inner blocks or demonic influence,   as the Lord leads you to. (see  Healing Prayer Outline and Bib. Found.   sec. IX-XI)
5) Hold   in mind a detailed faith-picture of the person healed and say,  “Thank   you, Lord, that that is the way it is going to be, because your  power is   healing this person.” (Bib. Found. sec. III, V)
Releasing the Healing Anointing of   Jesus in Prayer
Methods and   procedures do not heal. Jesus does. But these are some points which help   us  draw near to Jesus and discern what He wants to do through us in   prayer.
–Dial down, quiet yourself and tell   the person being prayed for to dial down,  quiet themselves and focus on   Jesus who is always with us (Matt 28:20).
Tell the   person just to receive and not to strive or pray themselves or pray in    tongues, which tends to block the Holy Spirit from healing a person (Isa.   30:15  “”In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust   is your  strength”; Jesus had to take the blind man away from his friends   when his  friends “begged Jesus to touch him,” (Mk. 8:22) suggesting   emotionally intense  fear-filled striving).
–With   your mind’s-eye (eyes of your heart) see Jesus as He is described in His    Transfiguration in Matt. 17:1-8—See Jesus’ face and clothes full of   God’s  brilliant light (Heb. 1:3), surrounded by the bright cloud of   God’s Spirit. See  Jesus’ light (His anointing and power) radiating onto   you and into you. Keep   your focus on Him (worship the Giver not   the gifts) and praise Him in your spirit  for His sacrifice on the cross   for our sins, for His love and power.
–Keep   your inner attention on Jesus always throughout the prayer time. Listen    to any specific insights or guidance Jesus may speak or bring to mind for   the  prayer time or the person by tuning to the voice and vision of God   (i.e.  spontaneous thoughts and spontaneous pictures—for help learning to   hear God’s  voice, maybe go to  and click  on “The Four Keys   to Hearing God’s Voice”). What is the Lord doing in this person’s life    and what does He want to do through your prayers?
–Assume   God will send healing unless He has shown you otherwise (“the  prayer of   faith will heal the sick person (Grk. fut. Indicative sosei “will heal”   not  “may heal” or “might heal…if it’s God’s will”)” Jas. 5:15).
–Keep your eyes OPEN so you don’t   miss the signs of the Holy Spirit’s  manifestations on the person.—some   typical signs: eyelids fluttering, change in  breathing, slight shaking,   flush on skin, radiant sheen on the face, visible  peace:
†   Possible responses to the presence of God and the power of the Holy    Spirit:
1. Shaking or trembling (Exo. 19:16;   Ps. 2:11; 96:9; 114:7;  119:120; I Chron. 16:30; Ezra 9:4; Ps. 2:11;   119:20; Isa. 66:5; Jer. 5:22;  23:9; Dan. 10:10-11; Mat. 28:4; Acts 7:32;   Heb. 12:21).
2. Falling over–  “resting” or   “being slain” in the Spirit (I Kgs. 8:11; Ezek. 1:28; 3:23; Dan.    8:17-18; 10:9; Mat. 28:4; Lk. 9:32; Jn. 18:6; Acts 9:4 (26:14); I Cor.    14:25; Rev. 1:17).
3. Intoxicated state of mind (Acts   2:4, 13, 15; Eph. 5:18;  cf. I Sam. 1:12-17; I Sam. 19:23f.).
4. Laughing, shouting, or crying   (Gen.  17:1, 3, 17; Ezra 3:13; Neh. 8:9; 12:43; Ps. 126:2; Prov. 14:13)
5. Feeling  heat, energy (Mk.   5:30; cf. Col.1:29 energeia // dunamis ).
6. Deep peace  (Rom. 15:13; I   Cor. 14:33), etc.
7. Radiance on one’s face (Acts 2:3;   6:15  and 7:55; II Cor. 3:18 (and Exo. 34:29).
–Ask the   Lord to release His power–“Jesus, please release the healing  power and   light of Your Holy Spirit on this person.”/ “Come Holy Spirit,     release your healing power and light on this person.” (Ezek. 37:9 Hebrew    bo’i haruakh “Come O (Holy) Spirit!” [Heb ruakh here clearly refers to the   Holy  Spirit, because in Ezek. 37:6 ruakh is translated in the Greek   Septuagint as  pneuma mou “My Spirit” referring to God’s Spirit and   because of the allusion to  creation by the Holy Spirit in Gen. 1:2]; “O   Lord, I call to you; come quickly to  me” Ps. 141:1; II Cor 3:17 “Now the   Lord is the Spirit”).
† The   Holy Spirit is always with us (John 14:16-19; Psalm 139:7-10).
†† But He   comes specially and manifests special anointing for special purposes   (Luke  5:17 “the power of the Lord was present to heal” implying that   there were times  when the power of the Lord was not present; I Cor. 5:4   “When . . . the power of the  Lord Jesus is present”; Isa. 55:6 “Seek the   Lord while He may be found; call upon  Him while He is near”).
–WAIT–and this is hard–until you see signs of the Holy   Spirit’s presence on the  person—often but not always eyelids fluttering,   change in breathing, muscle spasm or rippling,  shaking, flush on skin,   radiant sheen on the face, visible peace, falling, laughing, crying   (“And  the power of the Lord was present for him to heal the sick” Luke   5:17; “Be still before the Lord  and wait patiently for him” Ps. 37:7)
–With   your mind’s eye, see the healing power of Jesus as His radiant light    entering the person’s body. Whether you perceive the anointing as   warmth,  tingling and electricity, as many do, or not, keep seeing in   your mind’s-eye the  anointing entering the person and going to the place   of infirmity (while keeping  your primary attention on Jesus), because   unless there is a block of some sort  (sin, unforgiveness, anxiety, fear,   unbelief), the Lord’s anointing is really going  into the person. Focus   the healing anointing by asking Jesus to intensify His  power and healing   light in the spot of the infirmity and by seeing Jesus’ healing  light   penetrating and increasing in intensity in the exact location of the   infirmity.
–Thank the Lord as an expression of   faith (Ps. 22:3-4; 50:23; 2 Chron. 20:21-  23, 27): “Lord, thank you that   your healing light and power is going into this  person and into the   place of infirmity.” Thank the Lord whether you feel or sense  anything   happening or not.
–Pray as   the Lord leads you to, with Petition/intercession to God and/or words    from God spoken to a condition or demon or to the person (e.g. Mk. 1:25;   7:34;  Luke 4:39; Jn. 11:41-43; Acts 28:8).
–Petition/Intercession (“So they   took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and  said, ‘Father, I thank you   that you have heard me. . . .” Jn. 11:41; “His father  was sick in bed,   suffering from fever and dysentery. Paul went in to see him  and, after   prayer, placed his hands on him and healed him” Acts 28:8.  –Command   (“Be quiet! . . . Come out of him!” Mk. 1:25; “Be clean!” (to a  leper)   Mk. 1:41; “Get up!” (to a lame man) Mk. 2:11, Jn. 5:8, Acts 9:34;    “Stretch out your hand” Mk. 3:5; “Get up” (to a dead person) Mk. 5:41,   Lk.  7:14, Acts 9:40; Jesus spoke to a deaf man’s ears, “Be opened!” Mk.   7:34;  Jesus “rebuked the fever, and it left her” Lk. 4:39; “See again!   (Grk.  Anablepson)” (to a blind man) Lk. 18:42; “Lazarus, come forth!”   Jn. 11:43;  “Walk!” (to a lame man) Acts 3:6; “Stand up!” (to a lame man)   Acts 14:10).
–The Command prayer is the most   frequent type of healing prayer in the  Gospels and Acts, so expect the   Lord to lead you to use the prayer of  command a lot in healing prayer.
–Maybe   First command the pain to leave the person: “Pain you leave this   person’s  body (arm, leg, heart, etc.) now! Obey the body and blood of   Jesus! It is  written, ‘By His wounds we are healed’ (Isa. 53:5; 1 Pet.   2:24), and we  proclaim that by Jesus’ wounds this person’s body is   healed in Jesus’ name.”
Don’t be afraid to command pain to   leave more than once (Jesus had to pray  for the blind man more than once   in Mark 8:23, 25.) Usually it leaves after 2-  3 times of command prayer.
–Then   command the underlying disease (cancer, arthritis, etc.) to leave the    person—treat it like an intruder and tell it to leave and never return in   Jesus’  name. Notice Jesus “rebuked” the fever in Lk 4:39 like He   “rebuked” (same  Greek word) demons elsewhere (Matt. 17:18; Luke 9:42;   Mark 9:25 He  rebuked the evil spirit: “You deaf and mute spirit . . . I   command you, come  out of him and never enter him again!”).
–Pronouncement (“Woman, you are set free from your   infirmity” Lk. 13:12;  “Your faith has healed you” Lk. 18:42; “Take your   mat and go home” Mat. 9:6;  “Go . . . wash in the Pool of Siloam” Jn.   9:7; “’Go, show yourselves to the  priests.’ And as they went, they were   cleansed” Lk. 17:14).
–Ask   questions?? (“How are you feeling? Better? Worse?”) during prayer to   find  out what the Holy Spirit is doing, for more information or   redirection (“Do you  see anything?” Jesus said to a blind man during   prayer Mk. 8:23; Elijah sent his  servant to the edge of Mt. Carmel seven   times to see if the rain he was praying  for had come yet, James 5:18 and   I Kings 18:41-44).
–Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit   for insight about possible blocks to the Lord’s  healing in the person’s   life–e.g., unforgiveness, anxiety and worry, fear,  unbelief,   demonization, sinning which led to damaged emotions or damaged      relationships, etc. (James 5:15-16 “The prayer of faith will make the sick   person  well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be   forgiven; Therefore  confess your sins to each other and pray for each   other so that you may be  healed”; Matt. 13:58 “And he did not do many   miracles there because of their  lack of faith”; 1Cor. 11:29-30 “For   anyone who eats and drinks without  recognizing the body of the Lord eats   and drinks judgment on himself. That is  why many among you are weak and   sick, and a number of you have fallen  asleep [died]”).
–Hold a   detailed picture in your mind of the person completely healed (Heb.    11:13 shows that faith-picturing is a key element of faith). Ask the Lord to   give  you a picture of the person healed as the Lord wants Him to be.   Then hold that  picture of the person in your mind as you thank the Lord   that His power and  healing anointing are accomplishing the healing:   “Lord, thank you that this is  the way this person is going to be healed,   because that is your will for him. We  thank you that your power is   working this healing in him now and bless what  you are doing in him.”
I. Healing is Not Just “One of the   Gifts”–Healing Shows Non-Christians and  Christians God’s Power and   Love. A careful study of the Gospels and Acts  shows that one of the   chief functions of healing in the New Testament is to  accompany the   preaching of the gospel and to show people God’s power and  mercy.   Healing is not just one of the gifts of the Spirit. In the New    Testament, healing ministry is a primary tool alongside preaching God’s    Kingdom to show those who don’t know God as well as God’s people the    power of Jesus’ cross to forgive their sins and restore them to the life of   God:  Mat. 4:23; 9:35-36; 10:1, 7-8; 11:5; 12:15, 18; 15:30; 19:2 (cf.   Mk. 10:1); 21:14  (cf. Lk. 21:37); Mk. 1: 38-39; 2:2, 11; 3:14-15;   6:12-13; 10:1 (cf. Mat. 19:2); Lk.  4:18; 5:17, 24; 6:6-11, 17-18; 7:22;   9:1-2; 10:9, 13; 13:10-13, 22, 32; 14:4, 7ff.;  21:37 (cf. Mat. 21:14);   16:15-18, 20; Jn. 3:2; 7:14-15, 21-23, 31, 38; 10:25, 32,  38; 12:37, 49;   14:10, 12; Acts 1:1; 2:22; 3:6, 12; 4:29-30; 5:12-16, 20-21, 28,  42;   6:8, 10; 8:4-7, 12; 9:17-18 (cf. 22:13), 34-35; 10:38; 14:3, 8-10, 15ff.;   15:12,  36; 18:5, 11 (cf. II Cor. 12:12; I Cor. 2:4-5); 19:8-12; Rom.   15:18-19; I Cor. 2:4-  5; 11:1; 12:1-11, 28-31; 14:22-25; II Cor. 12:12;   Gal. 3:5; Phil. 4:9; I Thes.  1:5-6; Heb. 2:3-4; 6:1-2; Jas. 5:13-16.
II. Embracing God’s General and   Specific Will concerning Healing  Scripture clearly shows that as a   general rule it is God’s will to heal the sick.  James 5:15 says “the   prayer of faith will heal (Greek future indicative) the  sick” not “the   prayer of faith may or may not heal the sick.” And the overall  witness   of the New Testament regarding God’s attitude toward healing shows  that   God desires to heal. Any reader of the Gospels knows that God’s Son    healed the sick. Acts and the Epistles show that the apostles and Early    Church laity healed the sick (Stephen, Philip, Ananias, the Corinthians,    Galatians, Jewish Christian churches, etc.; E.g., Acts 3:6, 12; 4:29-30;   5:12-  16, 20-21, 28, 42; 6:8, 10; 8:4-7, 12; 9:17-18 (cf. 22:13), 34-35;   14:3, 8-10,  15ff.; 15:12, 36; 18:5, 11(cf. II Cor. 12:12; I Cor. 2:4-5);   19:8-12. Rom. 15:18-  19; I Cor. 2:4-5; 11:1; 12:1-11, 28-31; II Cor.   12:12; Gal. 3:5; Phil. 4:9; I Thes.  1:5-6; Heb. 2:3-4; 6:1-2; Jas.   5:13-16.). God gave the church gifts of healing  (I Cor. 12:9). As well,   He commands the church to pray for the sick in  James 5:14-16. So we know   from all this evidence that as a rule, God  desires to heal the sick.   Scripture also makes it clear that in a minority of  cases for various   reasons the early church did not always see all the sick  healed (2 Tim.   4:20; Phil. 2:26-27; 1 Tim. 5:23; Gal. 4:13-14). If we  read about the   prayer of faith that makes the sick person well in James  5:14-18, we   find that the way that Elijah listened to God’s immediate word  and then   prayed in 1 Kings 18, is an example of the prayer of faith that will    make the sick person well. Elijah first heard the prophetic word of God in   1  Kings 18:1 that God was going to send rain, and then in 1 Kings   18:41-45  Elijah actually prayed for the rain that God said He was going   to send. So the  faith that heals the sick involves hearing what God   wants to do in prayer for  the sick person and praying that out over the   sick person until we see the  fullness of healing manifested in their   body, just as Elijah prayed until he saw  the rain finally begin to come.
JAMES   5:14-18  1. Remove blockages by confessing your sins one to another   (Jas.  5:14-18): Each person in the group (prayer ministers and person   being  prayed for) is to focus on Jesus with the eyes of your heart. Fix   your  eyes on Jesus and ask Him if there is anything that is blocking   His  healing power from flowing to you. Receive His response back by   tuning  to spontaneous thoughts and pictures (For help learning to hear   God’s  voice, go to  and  click on “The Four Keys to   Hearing God’s Voice.”). Make sure you are  living a healthy lifestyle,   which includes a nutritious diet, regular  exercise, fasting/cleansing   and stress-free living. Confess your sins  based on what you receive.   Learn to confess your sins moment by  moment so you stand clean before   the Lord. This group stance of  humility and holiness releases God’s   power.
2. The   foundation for healing is entering God’s presence: The Lord  said to one   Christian colleague of Dr. Virkler’s, “First you must practice  My   presence. Then we’ll talk. My presence is really more important than  My   words. The healing takes place while in My presence.” Become    Christ-conscious by worshipping Christ in your spirit. See Jesus    transfigured in God’s light (Matt. 17:1-8). Ask for, see and release His    healing power, which can be seen as light, and felt as heat and   tingling.  His power to heal is released through His presence.
3. Discover and   deal with the root cause of the infirmity: Have the  sick person, pray,   “Holy Spirit, please show me the root cause of this  sickness in my   body.” (His body, his memory and the Holy Spirit within  him know exactly   what the root of the sickness is.) Then instruct him to  quiet himself   and tune to the voice and vision of God (i.e., spontaneous thoughts and spontaneous pictures) and share with you   what comes to  him. Apply the appropriate prayer.
4. Assume three   parts to healing prayer: (removing pain, casting  out demons, restoring   body parts)  Speak to the pain to be removed. It is easy, builds faith   once the  person being prayed for feels some pain leave, and removes this   distraction from the person being prayed for.  Firmly command the   specific afflicting demons to be loosed. Assume  demons in most/all   situations. Demons were frequently involved in the  conditions Jesus   healed, as is suggested by comparing the summary  description in Mark   1:39 with the parallel summary statement of Matt.  4:23:  Mark 1:39   “So he traveled throughout Galilee, preaching in their  synagogues and   driving out demons.”   Matt. 4:23 “Jesus went throughout Galilee,   teaching in their  synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom,   and healing  every disease and sickness among the people.”  Speak   lovingly and specifically to the damaged body parts to be  restored to   their normal function.
5. Receive   divine revelation: As you see Jesus and watch His healing  power and   light pour into a person, ask Him to show you exactly what  needs to be   healed and how He wants to heal it. Receive His answer by  tuning to   spontaneous thoughts and pictures, and act in obedience on  what He is   telling you. Engage the prayer-type that the Spirit leads you    to–petition, command, or pronouncement.
6. Team up for greater   revelation: Two or three prayer ministers who  are all open to God   showing them any keys to removing blocks and  sharing what they are   receiving with the group which then acts upon it,  will generally widen   the reception of divine revelation and very quickly  break the yoke of   the infirmity, restoring the person to health.
7. Powerful prayers which detach   demons: Person being prayed for  and prayer counselors stay tuned to flow   and act upon impressions to  pray in any of the following ways:
1. Forgiving anyone God brings   to  mind;
2. Confessing any sins God brings to   mind;
3. Breaking  generational sins   and curses;
4. Severing ungodly soul ties;
5. Replacing  negative beliefs;
6. Renouncing inner vows; 7.   Breaking word curses;
8.    Receiving inner healing through seeing visions of Jesus in the memory;
9.   Casting out demons. All of these can be covered systematically with a    “Contributing Strands Worksheet” found at   htm and see Dr. Mark Virkler and   Dr. Patti Virkler’s book, Prayers that Heal the Heart   (Bridge-Logos, 2001), for full discussion of these issues.
10 . Anoint with   oil: Use oil that has been prayed over for an impartation of  divine   healing power (James 5:14-15).
11. Intensify the flow of healing power by   seeing: Ask for and see  Jesus’ divine healing light and power radiating   onto and into the person;  see it focused on the infirmity, and thank the   Lord that the anointing is  being released and entering the body.
12. Give a divine radiation treatment: Have   a group of two to five people  keep their hands (both hands – so an   spiritual circuit is completed) on  a sick person for 10-20 minutes   releasing God’s power/light into him.
13. Get feedback   regularly: Ask the person how he or she feels (better,  same, worse), and   respond as necessary. Learn again from your own personal past experiences   too.   14. See it done:   Hold in your mind a detailed faith-picture of the person  healed and say,   “Thank You, Lord. That is the way it is going to be,  because Your power   is healing this person.
(1 Tim 5:22 KJV)  Lay hands suddenly   on no man,
Additional Notes
Some of the  distorted preachers, even pentecostals   do too often do teach that any  Christian should not be sick at all   and that we can always immediately claim our sickness healing by faith and God   will always heal us. They seem too easily to forget that  a   temporary human sickness can temporary serve God’s purposes. But also yet   the Fundamentals Evangelcials too now also go overboard denying that healing   tend to exist today as well.

 A too common Pentecostal Word Faith teaching is that it   is solely, always  your own personal fault for being sick. This false   teaching can be found in Hinduism as well.   They teach that it is   because of your own lack of faith and/or knowledge, unconfessed sins if   you are sick or poor.   This unloving, cruel and unbiblical   teaching does not come from God but from Satan who distorted God’s basic   truths on healing. Can you imagine the gall of anyone, even a false   elder, pastor, unlovingly trying to
tell a person to their face that the   reason their daughter sick is because of their lack of faith?  or that   God is punishing them of their own sin? Can you imagine the cruelty in telling   a person bound to a wheelchair that if they had enough “faith” they   would  surely  “Rise and be healed?” But what does the Bible say   about it, teach.

Most of the problem with the clear Christian teaching   discrepancies on Healing and Sickness is due firstly to the real personal ignorance of what the   Bible teaches even about Healing. Most Christian people wrongfully rely mainly   on some famous preacher who is pro or con to healing and Not on God and his   Word firstly. Many people have their mind made up beforehand anyway and are   not honestly open to the subjects and they thus tend use out of context bible   verses, the preachers quotations to try to suit, substantiate their own   pet views.. they need to read these verses..
(Mat 8:7 KJV)  And Jesus saith unto him, I will come   and heal him.
(Mat 10:1 KJV)  And when he had called unto him his   twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them   out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of  disease.
(Mat 10:8 KJV)    Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils:   freely ye have received, freely give.
(Mat 12:10 KJV)  And, behold, there was a man which   had his hand withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the   sabbath days? that they might accuse him.
(Mat 13:15 KJV)  For this people’s heart is waxed   gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed;   lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and   should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal   them.
(Mark 3:2 KJV)  And they watched him, whether he   would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse him.
(Mark 3:15 KJV)  And to have power to heal   sicknesses, and to cast out devils:
(Luke 4:18 KJV)  The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,   because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me   to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and   recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are   bruised,
(Luke 7:3 KJV)  And when he heard of Jesus, he sent   unto him the elders of the Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal   his servant.
(Luke 9:2 KJV)  And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God,    and to heal the   sick.
(Luke 10:9 KJV)  And heal the sick that are therein,   and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.
(Luke 14:3 KJV)  And Jesus answering spake unto the   lawyers and Pharisees, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath   day?
(John 4:47 KJV)  When he heard that Jesus was come   out of Judaea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he would   come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death.
(Acts 4:30 KJV)  By stretching forth thine hand to   heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of   thy holy child Jesus.
Just cause some preacher does not have the faith to heal,   has never been used by God in healing does that now wrongfully mean the Holy   spirit gift o healing has ceased? no! Of course not. So what if there   any instances of believers in the Bible that asked God for a   healing and were refused? Do we next make the false general statement   wrongfully that God refuses all request for healing thus?  Did Jesus   automatically heal all those who came to him? no? or there were conditions to   be met to be healed by Jesus in the New Testament too. Now what were the   conditions of healing?  And why were some refused their healings? just   Unconfessed sins? Does the fact that a sickness may return nullify the first   healing? No of course not.. I prayed for a person and he was healed.. years   later the sickness return and I wanted to pray for them again but God said no,   I will not hear your prayer, he is an unrepentant evil person.    Are there any instances of believers in the   Bible that remained sick or died from a sickness and does the death of any   believer now  supposedly nullify any possible healing of others? of   course not! ?  Is it not a fact that all  healing  are   temporary anway for we all do die?


but a self centered person  really cannot expect god to help them, heal them still


Now let us all  look at the common quotation of   Apostle Paul  supposedly applicable on Healings     “For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might   depart from me. And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my   strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather   glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.    Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in   persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I   strong,” 2 Corinthians   12:8-10.
It is agreed that the Apostle Paul had a thorn in the   flesh that was particularly troublesome. Now   was this thorn specifically a sickness and so what specific sickness?    Partial Blindness? Why does God  in   his word define it as a “thorn”, a specific abusive messenger of Satan,    and not rather a specific sickness. Paul he had asked the   Lord three times to take it the thorn, not to some it only means the    supposed sickness away but God said, “no.”  So despite God’s refusal to   heal him? Paul rejoiced because of his infirmities? and where is such a   reference in the Bible it is a sickness still?..  there is no such   reference the bad preachers imply the thorn was a sickness cause it is   convenient for them to do so.
Here is the undeniable   reality God rather promised  the Apostle  Paul that he would next   suffer physically  for Christ sake cause he persecuted   Christians.. this suffering included  the   physical persecutions he received while preaching the Gospel. (Acts 9:15   KJV)  But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel   unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of   Israel:16  For I will show him how great things he must suffer   for my name’s sake.  (1 Cor 4:11 KJV)  Even unto this present hour we   both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwelling   place; (1 Pet 2:20 KJV)    For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it   patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently,   this is acceptable with God. if you have doubts what it means to be buffeted   see (Mat 26:67 KJV)  Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others   smote him with the palms of their hands,)
“Ye know how through   infirmity of the flesh I preached the gospel unto you at the   first.  And my   temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not, nor rejected; but received   me as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus,” Galatians   4:13-14.
(2 Cor 4:7 KJV)  But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the   excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. 8  We are   troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in   despair; 9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; 10    Always bearing about in the   body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made   manifest in our body. 11  For we which live are always delivered   unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest   in our mortal flesh.
Now in   the Old Testament King David said this about his own afflictions: “It was good for me to be afflicted so that I might learn your decrees…I know, O Lord,   that your laws are righteous, and in faithfulness   you have afflicted me,” Psalm 119:71,   75.  “The LORD hath chastened me sore: but he hath not given me   over unto death,” Psalm 118:18.    “Before I was   afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word,” Psalm 119:67.
The lying bad   Preachers here too try to tell you this affliction was a sickness of   David .Yet we have no mention at all in the Bible that these   afflictions were any specific sickness, rather David clearly was persecuted by   his son, and others.. and all as a direct result of his adulterous sin with   Bathsheba  and the murder by David of her husband now as well. What   the preachers too do not know the Bible well enough to share the truth? it   sure seems so.
Let us all refer also to the case of Job and his   sickness.. who said ” Naked came I out of   my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the   LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD…Then said his wife   unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity?  Curse God, and   die.  But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women   speaketh.  What?  Shall we receive good at the hand of God, and   shall we not receive evil (Calamity)?  In all this did not Job sin with   his lips…Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain   mine own ways before him,” Job 1:21, 2:9-10,   13:15.
Clearly note that Job was eventually healed and lived to   an old age.. this is undeniable too. (Job 42:10 KJV)  And   the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the   LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.
(Job   42:11 KJV)  Then came there unto him all his brethren, and all his   sisters, and all they that had been of his acquaintance before, and did eat   bread with him in his house: and they bemoaned him, and comforted him over all   the evil that the LORD had brought upon him: every man also gave him a piece   of money, and every one an earring of gold.
(Job   42:12 KJV)  So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his   beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a   thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses.
(Job   42:16 KJV)  After this lived Job an hundred and forty years, and saw his   sons, and his sons’ sons, even four generations.17 So Job died, being old and   full of days.
Some people are sick due to   their own fault.. but not all persons. We need spiritual discernment on how to   deal with the sick..
(1 Cor   10:21 KJV)  Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils:   ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of   devils.
(1 Cor   11:29 KJV)  For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and   drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.30  For   this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.31   For if   we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
(James   5:14 KJV)  Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the   church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the   Lord: 15  And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall   raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.16    Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye   may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth   much.
I rightfully suggest all   person themselves now really go back to the Bible.. even on the subjects of   healing and sickness.. I believe in going to see a doctor  after we   prayed about it.. still God has promised for his children he would do     for them what the Doctors cannot do. We as Christian operate also under   a higher law than the earthly laws of medicine.
(Eccl 3:11 KJV)  He hath made every thing   beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no   man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the   end.

The John   Templeton Foundation conducted a study, it spent 2.4 million dollars to   learn  that sick people don’t necessarily get better if some strangers   pray for them?  Why?

In this   experiment, the prayers of three congregations initially had no effect on   hundreds of heart patients.  The study, mostly funded by the John   Templeton Foundation, and conducted the study with the assistance of   cardiologists and hospital chaplains was posted in American Heart Journal.   Three Christian prayer groups were assigned to pray for 1,800 heart patients   receiving medical care in six medical centers throughout the United States.
The   study found that prayer by others has a neutral effect on the risk of   complications after bypass surgery and that people fare worse if they know   others are praying for them. ( Crisis of conscience or demonic   oppositions?)
(Acts 14:22 KJV)    Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the   faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of   God. (Rom 14:1 KJV)  Him that is weak in the faith   receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations. (1 Pet 5:9 KJV)  Whom resist stedfast in the faith,   knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are   in the world.
The   study itself wrongfully did not address, or attack, the worthiness of a   person’s own prayers or the intercessory prayers of loved ones. Also,   researchers presumed that those who prayed had a valid personal relationship   with God that would give them power in their prayer.  Only about 25   percent of professing Christian persons are actually saved, born again firstly   too. And most, at least half of the pastors, elders were not called by God,   they are still even hirelings, impostors, pretenders too. Note also  this specific   commandment of God as to how to pray for the sick people.. and which includes   reciprocal, mutual acts.. and which was not followed in the study. “(James 5:14 KJV)  Is any sick among you? let him   call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him   with oil in the name of the Lord: 15 And the prayer of faith shall save the   sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they   shall be forgiven him.16  Confess your faults one to another, and pray   one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a   righteous man availeth much.” Anyone  guided by the Bible will not take this study   seriously, for while “God’s a good listener.” this big-budget prayer studies   prove something else. Holy mysteries don’t conform to today’s critics,   skeptics  distortions and their hurry-up spreadsheet pie-chart   bottom-line mentality.  Firstly “Prayer is based upon a relationship,   namely a relationship with God through Jesus Christ, and any prayer is itself   a part of that ongoing valid  relationship. ”   And, anyone who   knows the Bible, and the basic doctrine of Christianity also  knows that   God generally doesn’t answer most of the prayers of those who are not His. And   especially prayer for God’s physical healing which is his rather generally is   still His Children’s bread, the right of his servants, and which generally as   a right is not applicable to non believers, the non Christians. On   top of that the heart surgery itself does not alleviate automatically most of   the initial or the ongoing  causes of the heart problems themselves    including unresolved stress, past bad eating habits, unresolved anger,   bitterness and unforgiveness now as well. “This study approached prayer almost mechanically    noting that a particular phrase had to be prayed exactly and specific medical   results had to be recognized.  There was also here in this study also a   self centered, time limit, conditions imposed on God and as we all should know   God cannot be told how, when, what he has to do it. We submit to His will and   not the other way around. “God doesn’t generally  answer in the way we   like or in ways we can initially fathom too, but  God knows us and   notices us and is willing to invest and involve himself in our lives with his   own priorities.God has rather promised a positive end result. “(Rom 8:28 KJV)  And we know that all things work   together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according   to his purpose.29  For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to   be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among   many brethren.” Now   I have had a significant experience in praying for very sick people with God’s   specific will, prior approval and next only half of them were healed.. the   other half were not cause they still were not willing to let go of their past   sins, to repent of them. “(Luke 3:8 KJV)    Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within   yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is   able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.9   And now   also the ax is laid unto the root of the trees: every tree therefore which   bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.”    “(John 5:14 KJV)  Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said   unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come   unto thee.” “(John 8:11 KJV)  She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto   her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.”  I had also   significant miracles prayers related to heart sick patients answered as well,   but even here God firstly has promised through Jesus Christ only to do what   the Doctors could not do, God still uses doctors and he God heals in  his   time. On top of that there   still has to be an inevitable specific medical, physical reason for our death,   after all we all will die, sooner or later, (Heb   9:27 KJV)  And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this   the judgment: This   same  John Templeton Foundation costly experimental study merely still    exposes, displays  their researchers’ pathetic inept spiritual   ignorance, and their pathetic, appalling clear lack of understanding of the   process of prayer itself, of the Bible, and of God himself.  Over The   Years Other Studies Have Shown the Christian Faith, the Bible and   Prayer  Have A Positive Impact on One’s Health, Well being, Community. I   rightfully still would not lose any sleep on such pathetic researcher’s   conclusions.
(1 John 2:15 KJV)  Love not the world,   neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love   of the Father is not in him.
(Prov 23:4   KJV)  Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom.
(Prov 28:20   KJV)  A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh   haste to be rich shall not be innocent.
(Prov 28:22   KJV)  He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye, and considereth not   that poverty shall come upon him.
(Mat 6:24 KJV)  No man can serve   two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he   will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and   mammon.
(1 Cor 16:22 KJV)  If any man love not   the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha.
(Mat 7:16 KJV)  Ye shall know them by   their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of  thistles?
(Mat 7:20 KJV)  Wherefore by their fruits   ye shall know them.
Being filled   with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory   and praise of God. Phil. 1:11
The perverse   prosperity prostitutes, adulterers. It has been my too many years of personal   experiences that the perverse prosperity prostitutes, adulterers,   idolterers persons, who mainly  tithe to get richer and not rather   to help the poor persons,  for they do  generally as well   despise the poor and needy persons, covet to be rich they can be found in both   the secular and religious camps, and their behaviors tend to be very similar.   Even the religious persons, the rather still carnal persons, the Judas   followers,  while they now even do profess to be moral good living   persons  still when it comes to making more money they clearly bend their   rules on morality, ethics, honesty, and they will even cheat, lie steal to   acquire more wealth… they mainly still also do see other people as slave   objects, slaves that can be used to help them increase their personal   acquisitions and they will cast out, sell out their poor  relatives,   relationships still too..  but they still will even profess to be good   persons now too… and try to by their way into heaven.
(Mat 25:34 KJV)   Then shall the   King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit   the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35  For I   was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I   was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36  Naked, and ye clothed me: I was   sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37  Then   shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered,   and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38  When saw we thee a   stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39  Or when saw   we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40  And the King shall   answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it   unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. 41    Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed,   into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42  For I   was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no   drink: 43  I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed   me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44  Then shall they   also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, or athirst, or a   stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?   45  Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as   ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46  And   these shall go away into everlasting punishment:
(James 2:1 KJV)  My brethren, have not   the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of   persons. 2  For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring,   in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment; 3    And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him,   Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit   here under my footstool: 4  Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and   are become judges of evil thoughts? 5  Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath   not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom   which he hath promised to them that love him? 6  But ye have despised the   poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats?   7  Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?   8  If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love   thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well: 9  But if ye have respect to   persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.   10  For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point,   he is guilty of all. 11  For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said   also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art   become a transgressor of the law.
(1 Tim 5:8 KJV)  But if any provide not   for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the   faith, and is worse than an infidel.
(1 John 1:9 KJV)  If we confess our sins,   he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all   unrighteousness.10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and   his word is not in us.
(Jer 2:20 KJV)  For of old time I have broken thy   yoke, and burst thy bands; and thou saidst, I will not transgress; when upon   every high hill and under every green tree thou wanderest, playing the   harlot.
(Jer 3:6 KJV)  The LORD said also unto me   in the days of Josiah the king, Hast thou seen that which backsliding Israel   hath done? she is gone up upon every high mountain and under every green tree,   and there hath played the harlot.
(Jer 3:13 KJV)  Only acknowledge thine   iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the LORD thy God, and hast   scattered thy ways to the strangers under every green tree, and ye have not   obeyed my voice, saith the LORD.
(Mat 23:37 KJV)  O Jerusalem,   Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent   unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a   hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
(Prov 23:5 KJV)  Wilt thou set thine eyes   upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly   away as an eagle toward heaven.
(Ezek 6:13 KJV)  Then shall ye know that   I am the LORD, when their slain men shall be among their idols round about   their altars, upon every high hill, in all the tops of the mountains, and   under every green tree, and under every thick oak, the place where they did   offer sweet savour to all their idols.
(Psa 35:13 KJV)  But as for me, when they   were sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my   prayer returned into mine own bosom.
(Psa 69:13 KJV)  But as for me, my prayer   is unto thee, O LORD, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy   mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation.
(Psa 9:9 KJV)  The LORD also will be a   refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. 10  And they that   know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken   them that seek thee. 11  Sing praises to the LORD, which dwelleth in   Zion: declare among the people his doings. 12  When he maketh inquisition   for blood, he remembereth them: he forgetteth not the cry of the humble.
(Psa 48:1 KJV)  Great is the LORD, and   greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness.   2  Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on   the sides of the north, the city of the great King. 3  God is known in   her palaces for a refuge.
(Psa 62:5 KJV)  My soul, wait thou only   upon God; for my expectation is from him. 6  He only is my rock and my   salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved. 7  In God is my   salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.   8  Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him:   God is a refuge for us. Selah. 9  Surely men of low degree are vanity,   and men of high degree are a lie: to be laid in the balance, they are   altogether lighter than vanity. 10  Trust not in oppression, and become   not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.   11  God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth   unto God. 12  Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest   to every man according to his work.
(Psa 104:16 KJV) The trees of the LORD are   full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted; 17  Where the   birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her house.   18  The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats; and the rocks for the   conies. 19  He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going   down. 20  Thou makest darkness, and it is night: wherein all the beasts   of the forest do creep forth. 21  The young lions roar after their prey,   and seek their meat from God. 22  The sun ariseth, they gather themselves   together, and lay them down in their dens. 23  Man goeth forth unto his   work and to his labour until the evening. 24  O LORD, how manifold are   thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy   riches.
(Isa 25:1 KJV) O LORD, thou art my God; I will   exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy   counsels of old are faithfulness and truth. 2  For thou hast made of a   city an heap; of a defenced city a ruin: a palace of strangers to be no city;   it shall never be built. 3  Therefore shall the strong people glorify   thee, the city of the terrible nations shall fear thee. 4  For thou hast   been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge   from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is   as a storm against the wall. 5  Thou shalt bring down the noise of   strangers, as the heat in a dry place; even the heat with the shadow of a   cloud: the branch of the terrible ones shall be brought low. 6  And in   this mountain shall the LORD of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat   things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines   on the lees well refined. 7  And he will destroy in this mountain the   face of the covering cast over all people, and the veil that is spread over   all nations. 8  He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD   will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he   take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it. 9  And it   shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he   will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and   rejoice in his salvation. 10  For in this mountain shall the hand of the   LORD rest, and Moab shall be trodden down under him, even as straw is trodden   down for the dunghill. 11  And he shall spread forth his hands in the   midst of them, as he that swimmeth spreadeth forth his hands to swim: and he   shall bring down their pride together with the spoils of their hands. 12    And the fortress of the high fort of thy walls shall he bring down, lay low,   and bring to the ground, even to the dust.
I have had some very   dramatic, real  VALID personal experiences with Healing.. they were   mostly unexpected ones
It all started mostly when my 6 month daughter   was diagnosed as being seriously ill, likely to die a vegetable within 3   years. I had no experiences in healings. I had also just gone to a new church,   the Christian Missionary Alliance church, and I had read their church   doctrines on healing. She was diagnosed with  hydrocephalus, which  is derived from two Greek   words, hydro, meaning water, and cephalus, meaning head, and once was called “water on   the brain.” Hydrocephalus is the condition caused by the accumulation of an   abnormally large amount of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the skull, or cranium.   Normally, CSF flows continually from the interior cavities in the brain   (ventricles) to the thin subarachnoid space that surrounds the brain and   spinal chord. 1/10000 babies are born that way.
My wife who was also a nurse was very   very depressed about it.. so I suggested we separately read the Bible and ask   God what to do about it
God next told us three things in our Bible   reading-
1 She our daughter was not sick for our sin,   or our fault
2: She will be healed God had needed her for   his glory
3: I now was to ask the local church elders to   pray for her healing.
(James 5:14   KJV)  Is any sick among you? let him call   for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with   oil in the name of the Lord:15  And the prayer of faith shall save the   sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they   shall be forgiven him.16  Confess your faults one to another, and pray   one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a   righteous man availeth much.
When I approached the local Alliance Church   pastor to have the elders to pray for my daughter he was hesitant, the local   Church had really never done it before but eventually they agreed to come to   our home two days later to pray for our daughter
About 6 elders came and prayed for her and   next day God had told me she was healed, but physically there was no evidence   of it.. her head swelling had not gone down… that was what I was expecting   to happen.. I was really expecting a miracle, not a gradual   healing.
I was dismayed next also that I got a phone   call that two church elders who prayed for my daughter undeniably rather   clearly got immiediately healed, one of a neck problem and one of an arm   problem too.
Next the local Shriner’s children   Hospital  called and wanted us to bring our daughter for medical testing   and surgery. When I prayed God had replied that the doctors had told me she   was sick, and the doctors would tell me she was well. When we went to the   Hospital, I told the attending nurse that my daughter was healed but she of   copurse  did not believe me. I als had told her no operation would be   needed. On the next day at 8:30 am they took her for a brain scan, and hours   later it became very quiet on the floor, the nurses were whispering. and 3   doctors dressed in white came to see me and my wife  and said.. we have   no explanation for it but she has healed herself, there will need no need for   surgery and I can take her home the next day.
My story did not end there, for the next   day at 3:30 pm ,when my wife and I got in the family car to take our daughter   home, and when I went to start the car, the gas accelerator got stuck and the   car started to race down the street at rapidly accelerating speed on it’s own.   it was a dead end street too. And all I could do was cry Jesus help me.. and   next the car stalled and stopped immediately.
God told me that the devil was mad, mad     that we had robbed him of a sick child and that he the devil was   going to punish another child next, and that I was to pray for the child and   the father. So I did right there I prayed for the unknown to me Child’s   protection and healing.
We next took our daughter home and the doctors   told us that she would have headaches for a few days cause of the medical   testing, and you could see her in pain, her eyes were rolling.. but I said if   God could heal her of brain problems he can deal with a headache and I prayed   for my daughter immediately at home  and clearly her headaches   stopped.
The next day we got a phone call that the   visiting Church football evangelist daughter was born that day at the same   Shriner’s hopistal with the same sickness my daughter had, she had hydrocephalus and spinal Biff.  The   very next day I divinely met the same  football player on the street on   the way to work unexpectedly and we both went for coffee. I told him that God   had told me that he God would hear my prayer and his daughter too would be   healed.. even though he may not believe me.. and she evntually was   too.
It was not all personally rosy for me   after my own daughter’s healing for too many  local Christian people   got mad, jealous, bitter over the miraculous healing.. some even lied and said   the devil healed her, and sadly eventually I had to leave this local church   because of the too many unpleasantness. but a doctor in the same church was   converted, he had recognized personally what sickness my daughter had being a   doctor, and he next said only God could heal her and he accepted Jesus as his   savior. And while God still heals the devil also still tries to rob it, to   destroy it, to discredit it.. and he will even uses some professing Christians   to do so.. sad isn’t it.
(Psa 34:18 KJV)    The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be   of a contrite spirit.
(Psa   51:17 KJV)  The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a   contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
(Isa 57:15 KJV)  For thus saith the high and lofty   One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy   place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the   spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
(Isa 66:2 KJV)  For all   those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the   LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite   spirit, and trembleth at my word.
The Bible is the collection of sacred writings of the   Christian religion. It is comprised of the Old and New Testaments. The Old   Testament portion is recognized as being God’s words to us by Jews as well as   Christians. The New Testament consists of books recognized by the early    Christian Church from the 4th century, includes all the books penned by   the Apostles themselves.. The Roman Catholic Bible also includes the   Apocrypha.
The first English Translation of the Bible was   by Miles Coverdale ( a priest) in 1535. The Authorised or King James Version   followed in 1611.  The Authorised Bible was revised in 1959 by The   British and Foreign Bible Society. This was named The Revised Standard version   and was widely used and very popular because of the more simple written form.   The language in The King James version although beautiful and poetic was at   times difficult to understand especially for children. Another revision was   taking place around the same time. This was to be known as The New English   Bible. The New Testament part of The New English Bible first appeared in 1961   and The Old Testament and the Apocrypha was published in 1970. Since the   publication of these translations many others have appeared on the market.   Amongst them are The Living Bible, The Good News Bible and The New   International Version. The latter first appeared in 1973 and was later revised   in 1983.
The choice of Bibles today is extensive but not all   acceptable..I felt it was important for you to know something about the   different translations and versions of the Bible.  That way you can   personally make an informed decision about which one you want to read.    Regardless of what translation or version you prefer to read, the most   important thing is that you need to READ THE BIBLE FOR YOURSELF. Preferably,   you should use several translations/versions in your studying.
I am not endorsing any or all of the translations of the   Bible. That is a decision you need to make for yourself. I personally do   prefer to memorize Scripture verses in the King James Version
 The Bible   is our instruction book and   our guide. Read the WORD OF GOD for yourself and study it. The most important thing is that you: READ THE   BIBLE!!!

Psalm   103:2-5 NIV 2 Praise the LORD , O my soul, and forget not   all his benefits-3 who forgives all your sins   and heals all your diseases, 4 who redeems   your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, 5 who satisfies your desires with good things so   that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Psalm   147:1-3 NIV Praise the LORD . How good it is to sing praises to   our God, how pleasant and fitting to praise him!  2 The LORD builds up Jerusalem; he gathers the   exiles of Israel. 3 He heals the   brokenhearted  and binds up their wounds. I’m leaving you with a gift: peace of mind and heart! And   the peace I give isn’t fragile like the peace the world gives. So, don’t be   troubled or afraid. (John 14:27)

Fear not,   for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you   pass through the waters … they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk   through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For   I am the Lord your God” (Isaiah 43:1-3).

He (God)   comforts us whenever we suffer. That is why whenever other people suffer, we   are able to comfort them by using the same comfort we have received from God.   (2 Corinthians 1:34)

Blessed are those who mourn. They will be comforted.   (Matthew 5:4)
So do not fear, for I am with   you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help   you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10)

Psalm 23 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall   not be in want. He makes me lie down in green   pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, He restores my soul. He guides me   in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the   valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and   your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in   the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with   oil; my cup overflows. Surely   goodness and love will follow me all the days of my   life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
Psalm 46: 1-2 God is our refuge   and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear,   though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea Psalm 71: 20-21 Though you have   made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from   the depths of the earth you will again bring me up. You will increase my honor   and comfort me once again. Isaiah 49:14-16 But Zion said, “The LORD has forsaken me,   the Lord has forgotten me.” “Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and   have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will   not forget you! See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls   are ever before me.”
Isaiah 51:3 The LORD will surely comfort Zion and will look with compassion on all her ruins; he will make her deserts like Eden, her wastelands like the garden of the LORD. Joy and gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and the sound of singing. Isaiah 54:10 “Though the mountains be shaken and the   hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my   covenant of peace be removed,” says the LORD, who has compassion on you.
Isaiah 66:12-14 For this is what the LORD says: “I will extend peace to her like a river, and the wealth of nations like a flooding stream; you will nurse and be carried on her arm and dandled on her knees. As a   mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted over Jerusalem.” When you see this, your heart will rejoice and you will flourish like grass; the hand of the LORD will be made known to his   servants, but his fury will be shown to his foes.
Matthew 5:4 Blessed are those   who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Matthew 6:19-34 I tell you, do   not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body,   what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more   important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap   or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not   much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to   his life? “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field   grow. They do not labour or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all   his splendour was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the   grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire,   will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry,   saying, “What shall we eat?” or “What shall we drink?” or “What shall we   wear?” For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father   knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness,   and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry   about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough   trouble of its own. Matthew   11:25-30 Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you   rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in   heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my   burden is light.
John 14:1-4 Do not let your   hearts be troubled. Trust in God[a]; trust also in me. In my Father’s house   are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to   prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come   back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the   way to the place where I am going.
John 14:27 Peace I leave with   you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you asthe world gives. Do not let   your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
Romans 8:14,15 … because those   who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive a   spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of   sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.”
Romans 8:31-39 What, then, shall   we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who   did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also,   along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge   against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who is he that   condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at   the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us   from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or   nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: ” For your sake we face death   all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these   things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am   convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the   present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything   else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is   in Christ Jesus our Lord.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 Praise be to   the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the   God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can   comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from   God.
 Thessalonians 4:13   Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to   grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope.
Philippians 4:6 Do not be   anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with   thanksgiving, present your requests to God 1 Peter 5:6-7 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s   mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him   because he cares for you.

(Luke 9:11 KJV) And the people,   when they knew it, followed him: and he received them, and spake unto them of   the kingdom of God, and healed them that had need of healing. (Acts 4:22 KJV) For the man was   above forty years old, on whom this miracle of healing was shewed. (1 Corinthians 12:9 KJV) To   another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same   Spirit; (Revelation 22:2 KJV)   In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there   the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit   every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the   nations.

predestinate to be conformed to the image of   his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. – John   8:28,29

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall   tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril,   or sword?.. As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we   are accounted as sheep for the slaughter… Nay, in all these things we are   more than conquerors through him that loved us… For I am persuaded, that   neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor   things present, nor things to come,.. Nor height, nor depth, nor any other   creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in   Christ Jesus our Lord. – Romans 8:35-39

When thou passest through the waters, I will be with   thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest   through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle   upon thee. – Isaiah 43:2

Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,   the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;.. Who comforteth us in all   our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble,   by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God… For as the   sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by   Christ… And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and   salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we   also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and   salvation… And our hope of you is stedfast, knowing, that as ye are   partakers of the sufferings, so shall ye be also of the consolation… For we   would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in   Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we   despaired even of life:.. But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that   we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead:.. Who   delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he   will yet deliver us; – IICorinthians 1:3-10

My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers   temptations;.. Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience…   Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall   receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.   –   James 1:2,3,12

Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial   which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:.. But   rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his   glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. – 1Peter   4:12, 13

Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be   ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf… Wherefore let them that   suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him   in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator. – 1 Peter   4:16,19

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and   there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there   be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. –Revelation 21:4

Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive   me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and   thy right hand shall save me. – Psalms   138:7

For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to   the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat,   when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall. – Isaiah   25:4

For the Lord will not cast off for ever: But though he   cause grief, yet will he have compassion according to the multitude of his   mercies. For he doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men. –    Lamentations 3:31-33

Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath   begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: – Philippians 1:6

If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny   him, he also will deny us: If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he   cannot deny himself. – II Timothy 2:12,13

And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee:   for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee. – Psalms   9:10

Anti suicide watch

Depression is a common sickness? Treatable? Depends on what approach you are taking. Those who are depressed are more likely to exhibit risky behavior with drugs and alcohol, as well as being more likely to attempt suicide. In fact, are more associated with a shorter lifespan than the smokers.


The standard course of treatment for depression is questionable medication. Often it takes a combination of two or more different medications to mask, control the symptoms, and it is a trial and error approach to find the right combination for each patient. Over one-third of patients don’t get lasting relief from the standard therapies. When medicine has been tried and doesn’t work then generally nothing can help cause doctors are not really dealing with the basic causes of the depression. Depressed people will thus face a hard life.


To Help with many person’s medical symptoms of their diseases, depressions too we still do often we may still have to deal with the root causes of the sicknesses too.. including the hypertension, stresses, anxieties, and our past wrong values, ignorance, wrong doings too.


No matter what the symptoms are the cause of heart attacks AND CANCER are the main reasons  are still mostly the  bad food you eat, including too much sugar and fats, or falsely skipping meals, or not sleeping 8 hours of Qualitative sleep, not getting enough exercise, 20  minutes every 3 days, and not handling negative personal stress effectively will affect your health but a serious issue is the  failure to get a proper medical tests. such as an echogram.. The same major bad thing that causes the major sicknesses of  heart disease cause Cancer, Arthritis and diabetes too often.. Most persons now would live much longer  on the average, if they could collectively overcome five unhealthy habits: smoking, excess alcohol consumption, poor diet, sedentary behaviour and stressing out. Doing nothing about it now next will not help you  We all sooner or later develop some form of major sickness that has to be dealt with.. .  Doing nothing about it now next will not help you


Studies indicate that about 200,000 Americans suffer a heart attack each year without even initially realizing it. These unrecognized heart attacks account for about one-fourth of all fatal heart attacks,  making this a serious public health issue. Just don’t expect the stereotypical “Hollywood” heart attack, where you see an actor clutching at the left side of his chest in severe pain. This is actually less common.

But one real aspect of likely an impending heart attack  is the inability to bend down without pain, or a severe pain when breathing, not breathing easily or even a continual stomached pain etc… but heart conditions still do start of with showing up on your blood pressure.. .




Being overweight doesn’t mean you’re unhealthy..   The same major bad thing that causes heart disease cause Cancer, Arthritis and diabetes too often.. By the way being skinny insures no heart attack is a lie, a myth as studies show that skinny persons die more over fat people still


If Obesity Is a Disease, Why Are So Many Obese People Healthy? Several studies have shown that physically fit “obese” individuals have lower incidence of heart disease and mortality from all causes than do sedentary people of “normal” weight.  If the  goal is to address the serious diseases of type 2 diabetes and heart disease, it would be more productive and accurate  to urge doctors to focus on cardiometabolic risk, recognizing that there are both metabolically healthy and metabolically unhealthy individuals in all categories of weight. Rather than promote weight loss per se, doctors should instead encourage their patients of all sizes to incorporate physical activity and a balanced diet into their lives.

We all sooner or later develop some form of major sickness that has to be dealt with.. Human beings vary in personality and thus they also do even vary in their sickness treatment approach..  Some deny their sickness, some seek doctors, others seek alternatives, or the good or bad advices of their friends, associate.. clearly not all approaches are successfully..

The risk of developing breast cancer from drinking even small amounts of alcohol >is being ignored by women with thousands now needlessly dying every year. Less than two drinks a day can increase the risk of developing cancer, doctors have warned, after finding that even moderate consumption was linked to almost a third of alcohol-related cancers.


For a start it is always essential that we all do  eat adequately, regularly, properly, that we all do get plenty of exercise, drink plenty of water, and that we all do  get enough sleep, sadly many people lie to themselves they do not have to have get enough sleep..


Regular medical check ups by a good doctor is a must.. Merely trying to take drugs of the Pharmacy shelf is not a valid approach too.


Many of us face the common illness such as Colds, Flues,  Heartburn,  allergies, Asthma.

Now it is known that the primary cause of Asthma even in children is related to  drinking milk, and consuming milk products.. check it out on the internet….

Now  studies have also now shown that besides our basic essentials there also a clear  association between emotional stress and exacerbation of certain  illnesses, even  allergies, or the asthma in persons with asthma. This is particularly true also with children who have unstable asthma and with asthmatics who live in stressful circumstances. In the clinic, allergists have noted that the objective measurements of airway function and asthma symptoms are affected by stress. Not only can emotional stress trigger and asthma attack, but the reverse is also true. Asthma is a chronic disease which causes stress in a person’s life at home, school, and work. There is also a correlation between stress and prevalence of asthma. So one has to deal with both the stress and the illness here too


Learning to deal with any of our  negative, unbeneficial stress is important. Not all of the stress that you face is beneficial. This first requires to honestly, accurately recognize the cause of your stress but also  how next best to deal with it… and it could ne a false worrisome attitude or a troubling person.   An honest Admission of the cause is always the best start. Many persons also do have false, harmful values that do them no good, whereas may others tend to falsely go overboard with the need, pursuance of even good things I was in a doctor’s office recently reading a dozen of the latest medical journals and I was shocked to discover that the majority of doctors were still unable to deal positively with sickness associated with negative personal stress.


Let’s first be fair to ourselves and others and note that no one thing specifically even now causes all the cancers, diabetic sick persons, or the heart problems in the world, rather it tends to be  a combination of several different factors starting with our personal ignorance, and the false neglect of the our Bodies.


To Help with many person’s medical symptoms of their diseases, depressions too we still do  often we may still  have to deal with the root causes of the sicknesses too.. including the hypertensions,  stresses, anxieties, and our past wrong values, ignorance,  wrong doings too.
Hypertension is another  main, leading personal cause of heart attacks, strokes and other major medical problems. For most North Americans even if you don’t have high blood pressure now, you need to make a serious lifestyle, food  adjustments now to avoid personal health problems, especially Cancer and Heart diseases next in one’s future. A person is considered hypertensive with a blood-pressure reading of 140/90 millimetres of mercury (mmHg) or higher. Healthy adults should have a blood pressure in the range of 120/80 mmHg, although that target varies with age and other health conditions. There are many DIFFERENT factors that contribute to high blood pressure, including first the type of one’s food consumption, too much read meat, not enough fruit and vegetables,  being overweight, a lack of physical activity, excessive sodium consumption and aging. Hypertension, while it has few obvious symptoms, is a leading risk factor for heart disease, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease. God is a God of love and he really does not want us to suffer needlessly so he is willing to help us if we meet his conditions as defined also  in the Bible. (1 Cor 10:21 KJV)  Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.
Sadly too many persons do continue to have heart problems even cause they do not want to admit the dangerous side effect of Salt in their food consumption, salt which cause increased water retention and adds to the heart pumping difficulties. Red pepper is often used these days as a substitute for salt. Too much Salt cause other damage now as well.
“Medical researchers at the University of Alberta may have solved why people who eat high-salt diets are prone to developing medical problems such as kidney stones and osteoporosis, the puzzle that has remained unknown to scientific community until now. Principal investigator Todd Alexander and his team recently discovered an important link between sodium and calcium thorough their work with animal lab models and cells. These both appear to be regulated by the same molecule in the body. When sodium intake becomes too high, the body gets rid of sodium via the urine, taking calcium with it, which depletes calcium stores in the body. High levels of calcium in the urine lead to the development of kidney stones, while inadequate levels of calcium in the body lead to thin bones and osteoporosis. “When the body tries to get rid of sodium via the urine, our findings suggest the body also gets rid of calcium at the same time,” said Alexander, a Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry researcher. “This is significant because we are eating more and more sodium in our diets, which means our bodies are getting rid of more and more calcium. Our findings reinforce why it is important to have a low-sodium diet and why it is important to have lower sodium levels in processed foods,” he noted. It’s been known for a long time that this important molecule was responsible for sodium absorption in the body, but the discovery that it also plays a role in regulating calcium levels is new. “We asked a simple question with our research – could sodium and calcium absorption be linked? And we discovered they are,” said Alexander.” 
Majority of patients still lie to themselves when they do now falsely think they will not reap what they have personally sowed and thus they are committing personal suicide as a result. Lack of sleep is still a killer.. so is not eating properly.. so is unresolved stress…
A need for the Serious Anti suicide watch..
1: Not personally getting enough qualitative sleep.. it is not just how much sleep you get, minimum 8 hours, but how well you sleep that also counts. Valid Experts recommend that adults get between seven and eight hours of sleep each night to maintain good health and optimum performance.

2: Not personally now getting proper food intake can also lead to severe depression and very poor health next, severe health problems.. skipping out on meals often is bad..

3: Activity rut.. many people who have now set into  a none changing activities, environments, a habitual routine, are  next prone to be seriously depressed and they do not even know why?  Taking a new,  totally different activity, or making a personal life schedule change is often the same as a beneficial vacation for some persons.. even many professionals, college professors..
4: Many college students show clear classical sign of depression after being in school for a long period of time, working hard. 
5: Many people get depressed when they get older, and lose a lot of friends, and have no one to talk to , and now  just listening to them for a few minutes a day will really help them too
6: Many people get depressed because they are being falsely enslaved, oppressed, bullied by the bad persons.  Or they have too often listened to the bad advice  of others.
7: Poverty or even the opposite of having too much wealth can lead to thoughts of suicide, because of one’s inability to deal with the present circumstances effectively. Often brought on by too much self reliance.
 8: Persons who are overly lazy, unrealistic, have or follow a wrong value system, ill advised goals, continue to  do bad things,they will next be easily depressed too. Ironically they will next often  blame others for their depressions, bash others for it too. 
I have often helped many a poor, depressed person, not by any medications, but by  simply by changing their daily normal activity routine, and next by taking them for a drive into the country, or taking them to see a good film, a comedy, or Giving them some good movies to watch, or by me taking them to a fine food restaurant, or by me taking them for a long  walk through unfamiliar surroundings.. and it worked.. it actually next had broke them out of their long term depression.
Can’t change positively   the person? try first changing their surroundings, environment temporarily?
Most depressed persons,  about 75 percent,  can be helped with out more serious medical consultations it seem.

Did you yourself now know the major cause of depressions and suicides., despair include.. you might be depressed seriously and not even know it too… 

  Feeling down from time to time is a normal part of life. But when sadness takes hold and won’t go away, it may be depression. More than just the temporary “blues,” the lows of depression make it tough to function and enjoy life like you once did. A person with severe depression has little or no interest in work or hobbies, and may even have trouble getting out of bed.  With treatment and help, you can feel better. Learning how to understand depression – including its signs, symptoms, and causes – is the first step towards next honestly,  realistically recognizing and overcoming the root main problem, causes and not just trying suppress or to deal with the symptoms..

 Why Do People Get Depressed? Understanding Depression

I am too busy to have time to have a depression or to deal with my depression is not a realistic  approach as well.

There’s a vast difference between “feeling depressed” and suffering from clinical depression. The despondency of clinical depression is unrelenting and overwhelming. Some people describe it as “living in a black hole” or having a feeling of impending doom. They can’t escape their unhappiness and despair. However, some people with depression don’t feel sad at all. Instead, they feel lifeless and empty. In this apathetic state, they are unable to experience pleasure. Even when participating in activities they used to enjoy, they feel as if they’re just going through the motions. The signs and symptoms vary from person to person, and they may wax and wane in severity over time. Doing nothing about it generally makes it worse next.

While DEPRESSION is one of the most common mental illnesses even caused often mostly by external factors,  it  often can easily be cured, dealt with if not neglected, and it is rarely fatal thus. 

RESULTING PERSONAL DEPRESSION ITSELF IS basically CAUSED by biochemical imbalances in the brain involving the hormone cortisol and the neurotransmitters serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine. The tendency toward this chemical imbalance can be inherited, causing depression to run in families. A deep emotional loss may also trigger biochemical changes that cause depression. Or the brain chemistry can change for no apparent reason.

Other diseases, including thyroid conditions, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, hormonal imbalances, multiple sclerosis and some forms of cancer, can cause depression. Usually, treating the underlying diseases relieves the depression?

People suffering from chronic illnesses such as arthritis or heart disease may develop depression. For them, treating the depression often makes it easier to cope with the other chronic illness?

While virtually anyone can develop depression, the people most likely to do so include—

  • Relatives of depressed people, who are about twice as likely as average to become seriously depressed themselves
  • Women, who suffer depression about twice as often as men
  • The baby boom seniors,  generation, currently considered at greatest risk of all age groups
  • The elderly, often as a reaction to physical deterioration and the loss of friends, families and rewarding activities
  • Children who have suffered abuse or losses or who have a seriously depressed parent
  • Chronically ill people
  • Drug and alcohol abusers

TREATMENTS FOR DEPRESSION typically have high success rates, especially when recognized, admitted, PROPERLY DIAGNOSED.  While only a third of people suffering from depression seek treatment, about 85 percent of those who receive adequate treatment have good results. It is ironic many people who too often mainly see others as  being the sole cause of their own problems fail to see their own effective, proper solutions to it. We need not to lose a proper self perspective, solution now as well.

Depression is a major risk factor for suicide. There is a slow suicide approach as well, even brought on by ongoing  problems, self pity, guilt, persecutions, oppressions Recognition of the problem can immediately  lead to 90 percent of the solution.    


Britain has one of the highest suicide rates in Europe. Each year in the UK over 5000 people take their life. The Samaritans estimate that in the UK there is a suicide every 82 minutes. The charity Depression Alliance estimates that each year there are around 19,000 suicide attempts by UK adolescents whilst more than 2 million children attend GP’s surgeries with some kind of psychological or emotional problem.Each day, two people under the age of 24 commit suicide. 


People kill themselves for a variety of reasons. Sometimes drugs and alcohol are a factor, as are social factors, poverty, deprivation, mental illness,  or  “psychiatric injury”. The difference is important because injury has an external cause – in other words, something – or someone – is liable. The differences between mental illness and psychiatric injury are often not recognized; understanding the differences could alter the verdict, perhaps from suicide to manslaughter. To see the differences between mental illness and psychiatric injury.  Psychiatric injury- Bullying, harassment and abuse cause injury to health, which is often diagnosed as stress and anxiety but may also include severe depression.

We also all do need to learn to deal effectively and not by an ostrich approach with unresolved stress, life’s problems, Bullies and much more..


There is no single cause for depression. Many factors play a role including genetics, environment, life events, medical conditions, and the way people react to things that happen in their lives.

How Is Depression Different From Regular Sadness?

Everyone has some ups and downs, and sadness is a natural emotion. The normal stresses of life can lead anyone to feel sad every once in a while. Things like an argument with a friend, a breakup, doing poorly on a test, not being chosen for a team, or a best friend moving out of town can lead to feelings of sadness, hurt, disappointment, or grief. These reactions are usually brief and go away with a little time and care.

Cancer: By 2010, cancer will be the leading killer in the world, surpassing heart disease, causing more deaths than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. Cancer rates are growing in developing countries as people adopt western lifestyles, including smoking, high-fat diets, fast food and less physical activity.

Selenium, vitamin E and vitamin C won’t prevent men from getting prostate cancer. In findings that were released early because of the public health implications, the results of two large randomized, controlled clinical trials showed the supplements failed to provide a cancer-prevention benefit.

More Home remedies for over Gastro-Intestinal diseases and disorders. Saliva Problems

• Without proper saliva, you cannot absorb your food properly, for food digestion begins in the mouth. Always chew carbohydrate (“starchy”) foods especially well. This includes such things as bread and all grain products, potatoes, etc. If you do not digest your food properly you can get acid reflux too.. get a heart tack and/or cancer

• If you have a dry mouth, take a little lemon juice or honey before the meal to stimulate the flow of saliva.

Vitamin A If you are not obtaining enough vitamin A, your saliva flow may be inadequate.

Vitamin A is an important nutrient. It is especially helpful in the bodies of infants and toddlers for fighting off the effects of viral infection. It helps maintain the immune system in both children and adults. It plays a critical role in the creation of thyroid hormones and is absolutely necessary for creating the pigments that allow you to see at night. You have to get your vitamin A to have healthy skin. Preserve and improve your eyesight with Vitamin A

If you get your vitamin A from food rather than supplements, what are the foods you need. Here’s the rather short list:

Food Serving Vitamin A, measured as retinol equivalents Vitamin A, IU Retinol, measured in micrograms Retinol, measured in IU
Cod liver oil 1 teaspoon 1,350 mcg 4,500 IU 1,350 mcg 4,500 IU
Egg 1 large 91 mcg 303 IU 89 mcg 296 IU
Butter 1 tablespoon 97 mcg 323 IU 95 mcg 317 IU
Whole milk 1 cup (8 fl ounces) 68 mcg 227 IU 68 mcg 227 IU

(Source: The Linus Pauling Institute, Oregon State University, 2005.)

To this list, you could add skim milk, usually packaged with the artificial analog of the best natural vitamin A.

Note too many people develop allergic reaction to milk, as they get older, so cheese, milk products for them are unacceptable..

There’s also vitamin A in many breakfast cereals, and, were you inclined to use it as health food, caviar. Any natural food that’s rich in vitamin A is high in fat and cholesterol.

Although vitamin A is found only in foods of animal origin, some fruits and vegetables contain compounds, called cartenoids, that can be converted into vitamin A by your body. 

It is important for you to regularly eat foods that provide high vitamin A or beta-carotene even though it is stored in the liver. Stored vitamin A will help meet needs when intake of provitamin A carotenoids or preformed vitamin A is low.

Homemade Dandruff Treatments & Shampoos

hair wash

Not washing one’s hair is certainly a time-saver. Imagine this,  but not five days  with no shampoo or conditioner. Dream on..

Dandruff may be also caused by not rinsing well your hair well after a soap wash and  thus using additionally a conditioner can help.


If you know you have dandruff, than read on.

Below are home remedies to help you


1. Pour, Rinse, With Vinegar

Rinsing your hair with vinegar (specifically Apple Cider Vinegar or white vinegar) actually addresses the root of the problem Put simply, dandruff is the result of skins cells maturing and dying too fast, building up, and causing irritation. Vinegar will get rid of the unwanted skin that would flake off into dandruff, and it won’t clog up your pores or cause more. An overgrowth of fungus can also cause dandruff, and vinegar acts like a fungicide. Using it is straightforward, simple, and is probably easier on your hair than some shampoos out there.


You will need…
-1/2 cup warm water
-1/2 cup ACV or white vinegar
-A cup

Mix together the warm water and vinegar in a cup. The total amount may be varied to be more or less depending on how much hair you have. Pour the mixture over your hair, scrub it around gently for several minutes, and then rinse it thoroughly with water (only water!) Wait about 8-12 hours before taking a normal shower. Repeat once every week or two weeks, depending on how often you feel you need it.


2.  Baking Soda

Baking soda is just an all-around useful thing to have in the house. It plays a large part in a lot of natural home remedies, and for good reason-it usually works! It helps to remove dandruff for a number of reasons. First, it mildly exfoliates, which gets rid of the excess dead skin. It’s also kills off acts as a fungicide, and a common fungus that occurs on everyone’s scalp can cause dandruff if it becomes overly abundant. In addition, its tiny particles can be useful in actually removing those loose flakes stuck in your hair-instead of just breaking the pieces of skin up into smaller pieces.

You will need…
-1 tablespoon of baking soda
-1 cup of water
-A few drops of rosemary oil (optional)

Mix one tablespoon of baking soda to every one cup of warm water. If you’re using an old (clean) shampoo or soap bottle, shake up the mixture and apply generously. Otherwise, stir it before you use it. Do this in place of shampoo, daily if possible. Your hair may feel quite dry in the beginning, but its natural oils will restore themselves soon, and they will be much more balanced than when using some commercial shampoo. If you feel you absolutely must use shampoo (and really try the baking soda alone first if you can) you can add a teaspoon of baking to a handful of shampoo and use that instead. The rosemary oil is optional, but some people find rosemary helps dandruff and think it has a pleasant scent.


3.You can  Utilize Listerine

Listerine was actually created in 1879 by a doctor in Missouri and used as a powerful surgical antiseptic for dentists. one its original purposes was also to fight dandruff. Listerine fights fungus, and one of the most common cause of dandruff is an overabundance of fungus.

You will need…
-Listerine Mouthwash (preferably not green or blue as they might stain your hair)
-Spray bottle (optional)

Mix 2 parts water with 1 part Listerine. After you shampoo, spray or pour the solution onto your scalp, massage in well, and let sit for 30 minutes before rinsing with water.


4. Get Some Sun on your scalp

It’s not known exactly why, but there have been links between dandruff and exposure to sunlight. There have been many cases in which the severity of dandruff lessened when the afflicted person spent more time in the sun.


5.  Aspirin

Aspirin can help with more than just headaches-it’s also an easy at-home remedy for dandruff. Pure Aspirin uses a large percentage of Salicylic Acid, which is an active ingredient in many commercial anti-dandruff shampoos. Salicylic Acid has fungicidal and anti-microbial properties to fight the extra flakes caused by fungus, while the Aspirin helps with the inflamed skin that often goes hand-in-hand with severe cases of dandruff.

You will need…
-2 white Aspirin tablets

Crush up the Aspirin until it becomes a fine powder. Add it to your regular shampoo before use, making sure to leave it in your hair for about 2 minutes before rinsing completely.

How to Braise Meat


Season the main ingredient with salt and pepper.
Heat a few tablespoons of oil and/or butter in a heavy pan or Dutch oven.
Saute meat or vegetables in the pan on medium-high heat until the meat browns.
Deglace the pan by pouring broth, beef stock, wine or juice and scrape any pieces of meat that are stuck to the pan and stir.
Add cooking liquid (water, stock, wine, juice or some combination) to the half-way point of the main ingredient.
Cover and place the meat on the middle of a rack in an oven that has been pre-heated to 300° – 350° Fahrenheit.
Cook until completely tender. This can range from 1 hour to 6 hours, depending on what you are cooking.
Remove the pan from the oven and strain the meat and vegetables out of the liquid.
Remove the excess fat floating in the liquid, and then reduce the sauce to desired thickness by cooking it down over low heat until it thickens. Or, make gravy by adding a mix of equal parts fat and flour (a roux).


Lamb Braising Times
Lamb shanks weighing 1/2 to 1 pound should be braised for 1-1/2 to 2 hours until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F according to the American Lamb Board.


Make It a Meal
Transform a braised meat dish into a meal by adding potatoes and veggies about 30 to 45 minutes before the meat is done. Be sure to cover the pan tightly after adding potatoes and veggies. Guidelines:
Potatoes. Use about 1 pound of potatoes for a typical 2-1/2- to 3-pound roast. Peel and quarter medium-size potatoes and/or sweet potatoes. If using new potatoes, peel a strip of skin from the centers.
Other Vegetables. Use about 1 pound total. These should be cut into 1- to 2-inch pieces. Consider peeled butternut squash, peeled carrots or parsnips, sliced celery, trimmed and sliced fennel bulb, sliced leeks or shallots, trimmed mushrooms, onion wedges or peeled pearl onions, and peeled turnips or rutabaga.

Braised Meat Recipes to Try Sunday Oven Pot Roast

Fork-Tender Pot Roast
2 1/2 pounds boneless beef chuck pot roast
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 stalks celery, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 cup coarsely chopped carrots (2 medium)
1 cup coarsely chopped onion (1 large)
1 bay leaf
1 clove garlic, minced
3/4 cup beef broth
1/4 cup dry red wine
2 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca, crushed
1 tablespoon dried Italian seasoning, crushed
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 teaspoon garlic powder
3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon paprika

Hot mashed potatoes (optional)

Choose the right cut of meat. The best cuts of meat for braising are heavily exercised cuts, such as those from the shoulder, leg or rump of the animal, as well as ones that contain a lot of connective tissue, like the chuck, shank, brisket and oxtail.

Preheat your oven to 300°F.

Pat the meat dry with paper towels. This will help you get a nice brown crust on the meat in the next step. Trim off any excess fat.

Heat a small amount of oil in a heavy-bottomed oven-proof braising pan or Dutch oven over high heat. When the oil is very hot, add the meat. Brown the meat for a minute or two on all sides. Remove the meat from the pan and set it aside.

Lower the heat to medium and add aromatic vegetables like chopped onions, leeks, carrots and celery. You could also add a few cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed. Sauté for a few minutes or until the vegetables start to soften.

Deglaze the pan with a flavorful liquid, such as stock, broth or wine. Scrape off any roasty bits (called fond) from the bottom of the pan and bring the liquid to a simmer. This liquid will add flavor to the braise. The long, slow, moist heat of braising is the best way to soften tough cuts of meat.

Return the meat to the pot along with some sort of acidic ingredient like diced tomatoes. The acid helps break down the tough connective tissues in the meat. If you used wine in the previous step, that will work. But tomatoes are always a nice ingredient to add to a braise.

Check the level of the braising liquid. The liquid should just barely cover the meat. You can now add other flavorings and seasonings, like whole peppercorns or bay leaves.

Bring the braising liquid back to a simmer, then cover the pan with a tight-fitting lid and transfer it to the 300°F oven.

Braise for 1 to 5 hours, depending on the size of the meat. Figure about an hour per pound.

Remove the pan from the oven. To make a sauce or gravy from the braising liquid, first make a roux, then whisk some of the braising liquid (strain it first) into the roux until it thickens. Cook on low heat for a few minutes, then season. Here’s more about how to make gravy.

If you’re braising shanks, make a few vertical (i.e., parallel to the bone) cuts in the outer membrane so that the meat won’t twist out of shape while it braises. Some chefs like to remove the membrane altogether, but it’s a lot of work and not really worth it. The long braising will pretty much dissolve that membrane anyway.


Oven braising is best because the meat is cooked with indirect heat. But if you don’t have an oven-safe pot, you can braise on the stovetop over low heat. You’ll have to check it periodically to make sure the liquid is simmering, not boiling.



Note the six leading causes of death in Canadian hospitals are stroke, heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, pneumonia, sepsis and heart attack. Never mind how many people even get more sick in a Hospital. Gastroenteritis (also known as gastro, gastric flu, tummy bug and stomach flu, (although unrelated to influenza) is inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract, involving both the stomach and the small intestine (see also gastritis and enteritis) and resulting in acute diarrhea or by severe vomiting.. Infectious gastroenteritis which can often be seasonally common even in Hospitals now too may be caused by viruses, bacteria, or parasites. And it is important to distinguish between bacterial and viral infections in regard to the treatment as well.. Bacteria, and parasites can be treated with antibiotics but Viruses do not respond to antibiotics . Noroviruses are the leading cause of foodborne disease outbreaks worldwide, and may soon eclipse rotaviruses as the most common cause of severe pediatric gastroenteritis. Norovirus gastroenteritis can cause significant morbidity and mortality among children, the elderly, and the immunocompromised.


a thyroid problem?


Face it you do not stay young and healthy forever, as you become older there are many health problems you develop and many of them can be prevented or  treated.. such as diabetes, lactose intolerance, cancer, thyroid problems even.. Untreated Stress or anxiety will always make things worse for you too..
Having pain, not hungry often,  feeling weak and tired all the time, throwing up water if you drink it on an empty stomach  get some practical advice on optimizing thyroid health.
 Guzzling lots of anything on an empty stomach isn’t a good idea!  The best thing to do on an empty stomach is take sips of water (one sips every 5 minutes) until that empty feeling goes away.  One it does, you can either eat or slowly drink your glass of water (or whatever you want).
If you experience abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea more than 3 days you may wish to consult your health care provider ASAP Dehydration is most serious for the very young, the elderly and those with compromised immune systems. See also When to Seek Medical Care.


More Self-care for adults:

For vomiting, follow these instructions in order:

  1. Do not eat or drink anything for several hours after vomiting.
  2. Sip small amounts of water or suck ice chips every 15 minutes for 3-4 hours.
  3. Next sip clear liquids every 15 minutes for 3-4 hours. Examples include water, sports drinks, flat soda, clear broth, gelatin, flavored ice or apple juice. Do not drink citrus juices. Increase fluids as tolerated.
  4. When you can tolerate clear liquids for several hours without vomiting and if you’re hungry, try eating small amounts of bland foods. Try foods such as bananas, rice,applesauce, dry toast (these foods are called BRAT diet), soda crackers. For 24-48 hours after the last episode of vomiting, avoid foods that can irritate or may be difficult to digest such alcohol, caffeine, fats/oils, spicy food and dairy products.   Dry crackers in small amounts may decrease nausea. That’s because foods high in starch, such as crackers or toast, can help absorb stomach acids If eating crackers works, you may have only have been hungry, not ill.
  5. When you can tolerate bland food, you can resume your normal diet.
  6. .

Retake medications if vomiting occurs within 30 minutes of taking usual medication. If you vomited after taking oral contraceptive pills, use a back-up contraception method for the rest of the month.


If diarrhea is the only symptom, try Imodium, a non-prescription (over-the-counter) medication available at the  Pharmacy according to package directions. Follow a bland diet (see 4 above). After the passage of a soft, formed stool, you can resume a normal diet.


Seniors are at increased risk of becoming dehydrated because they may not be as sensitive as younger adults to the sensation of thirst. In addition, age-related changes in the body’s ability to balance water and sodium increase the danger. The present trend of alt reduction may cause an inadequacy of iodine in your Body causing your thyroid problems,,


Thyroid Health

The thyroid gland, about the size of the knot on a man’s tie, is found in the front of the neck and produces hormones that control your metabolism. Too much thyroid hormone (hyperthyroidism), and metabolism speeds up. Too little (hypothyroidism), and metabolism slows down.


 Hyperthyroidism? It causes muscle fatigue and weakness, which you may notice first in the thighs. Exercises such as riding a bike or climbing stairs become more difficult. Other symptoms include unexplained weight loss, feeling warm all the time, increased heart rate, shorter and less frequent menstrual flows, and increased thirst.

.Hyperthyroidism is most commonly diagnosed in women in their 20s and 30s, but it often does  occur in older women and men too,


If hyperthyroidism is left untreated, an overactive thyroid can cause a loss of bone mineral density, which, over time, can lead to osteoporosis. Hyperthyroidism can also result in an irregular heartbeat, which can lead to stroke or heart failure. Unintended weight loss almost always accompanies an overactive thyroid. So if you’re losing weight but not dieting, your heart frequently beats rapidly, or you’re always hot even when people around you are cold, don’t just blame menopause. “There’s a difference between the intermittent flushing and sweating associated with menopause and being hot and sweating all the time that is not menopause,”


What are the symptoms of hypothyroidism?

This condition causes fatigue, an inability to concentrate, and muscle soreness, even with minor activity. Other symptoms include weight gain due to water retention, feeling cold all the time (even in warmer weather), heavier and more frequent menstrual flows, and constipation. Hypothyroidism is most common in women over age 50. In fact, as many as 10% of women past 50 will have at least mild hypothyroidism”


Hair loss may also be a symptom of an underactive thyroid, and is caused by the low levels of thyroxine being produced by the thyroid and circulating through the body. Even subtle changes in thyroid function can affect hair. Complaints of dry skin or brittle nails are also common when the culprit is hypothyroidism.


If hypothyroidism is not treated, it can raise your cholesterol and increase your risk of heart disease. It can also lead to a decline in memory and concentration.


Which tests help detect a thyroid problem?


Your doctor can give you a blood test called TSH, or thyroid-stimulating hormone. If it comes back abnormal, then you most likely have a thyroid disease. Whether your TSH is on the high side or on the low side of normal tells you which of the two main thyroid diseases you may have, each of which is treated differently..


If TSH is below normal, it means there’s too much thyroid hormone, and production slows down to compensate for the excess. This is hyperthyroidism. Women over 50 with hyperthyroidism are at greater risk for osteoporosis because the body breaks down bone faster than it can make it.


If TSH is above normal, the thyroid is underactive (hypothyroidism). The pituitary gland sends more TSH into the bloodstream when it senses that levels of the thyroid hormone thyroxine are low.


How do you treat hyperthyroidism? The approach to treating hyperthyroidism depends on the severity of the condition–it may involve ongoing treatment with medication, one treatment with radioactive iodine, or surgery?


How do you treat hypothyroidism?


Treatment of hypothyroidism is relatively simple–the drug levothyroxine (Synthroid). Because the disorder isn’t curable, you need to take it for life, says Walsh. He recommends monitoring the dosage by having your TSH level regularly checked–usually once a year.


What are natural remedies for hyperthyroidism? Lemon balm appears to calm an overactive thyroid? Ask your doctor first if you take thyroid medication, as the botanical may change the amount you need


What are some natural remedies for hypothyroidism?

Talk to your doctor about whether taking mineral supplements such as iodine, iron or selenium before going on meds might be for you, or whether natural thyroid glandular supplements,

“The thyroid glandular supplies the raw materials needed to optimize thyroid function, so taking one or two capsules three times daily between meals could start the process of kicking your thyroid back into gear within a month,”

 Remember, never start or stop taking a medication without consulting your doctor: If you’re at risk for heart disease, taking thyroid hormone could trigger heart palpitations or even a heart attack or angina.

Three supplements that may help are Riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin (B3), and pyridoxine (B6) because they all play roles in making thyroid hormone. B vitamins may also help boost energy. You can cover your bases with a daily B-complex pill, which contains all the B vitamins.


Thyroid health is important, because if your thyroid isn’t functioning properly it can lead to developmental defects or weight gain. Food is our medicine, so consuming the proper foods will help support your thyroid to ensure it remains in tip top shape. Carrots contain ample amounts of beta-carotene which is the precursor for vitamin A in the body. If you are low on vitamin A, your ability to produce thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) is limited. This vitamin is required by the body to convert T4 to T3.

B-complex vitamins are required for good thyroid function. Cucumbers contain B vitamins, so they are a good choice when trying to nourish the thyroid glands. Without B vitamins the thyroid and adrenal glands fail to secrete their hormones, and won’t be able to utilize its iodine raw material efficiently to make hormones. B vitamins are especially useful in individuals with an overactive thyroid.

Certain foods known as goitrogens may interfere with thyroid hormone production and make symptoms worse. These include cruciferous vegetables (such as cauliflower, cabbage, and Brussels sprouts), peanuts, and soy. Enjoy reasonable amounts of these, but don’t go overboard.


Chronic stress may decrease thyroid hormone production. If you have hypothyroidism, practice a positive relaxation technique, like meditation. More sleep and  Exercise can also help,

Both excess Sugar and Salt consumption can be bad for you

Millions of persons have diabetes, and many of them people do not even know it.. diabetes is not to be taken lightly for it has serious personal side effects. Diabetes is influenced by genes, and the food we eat, exercise as well.




Reminds me a University college graduate had boasted to me he had learned all about Computers in University.. so I put him down in front of my computer and said to him show me what you can do.. I was shocked next  when he really could not use a computer still, he said he had learned everything from text.. He lacked real practical experiences.. that is true about diabetes when it comes to many medical personnel,  Doctors and Nurses included.


One of the sad thing in life is how few people pay attention to the salt, sugar content in their food consumption and how they do even fail to identify some of it’s negative health effects.. Both excess Sugar and Salt consumption can tend to raise One’s blood  pressure. Eating significantly less salt and sugar would modestly lower blood pressure;  would help to  or  prevent heart disease and  lengthen life. Eating too much of these  items can put you at high risk for high blood pressure, high cholesterol and high blood glucose, could further increase risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes and even some cancers. Many processed foods, ready meals and savoury snacks can be deliberately relatively high in fat and salt, so try to get in the habit of reading pack labels and comparing brands before you buy. Check the sugar and salt content as well

“The human body is approximately 60 percent water, which is essential to almost every life process. But sometimes a condition called fluid overload can occur, in which more fluid (primarily water) is going into your body than is coming out. The chief cause of fluid overload is heart failure, a condition in which the heart muscle loses its ability to pump adequately. As the heart’s contractions (beats) become weaker and less able to pump out the blood that enters the heart, blood backs up in the veins, causing fluid buildup in the body’s tissues. The kidneys’ ability to eliminate excess sodium and water is also affected by heart failure, further increasing the body’s fluid congestion.  Fluid overload can also occur as a result of some other health conditions, including kidney disease and liver disease. It can also be a side effect of some food and some medications.

Excess fluid can build up in various locations in your body, leading to a condition called edema. Edema is swelling that usually occurs in the feet, ankles and legs (where it’s called peripheral edema), but it also can occur in the lungs (where it’s called pulmonary edema) and in the abdomen (where it’s called ascites).Fluid buildup can also cause increasing fatigue. You may begin to feel tired after performing normal daily activities or walking even a short distance. When fluid overload is not too severe, it can be treated with a program of diet and lifestyle changes.

Some Heart failure can be characterized by the side of the heart that’s weakened — based on that, patients can develop edema in different places in their bodies. When the right side of the heart is weakened, oxygen-poor blood tends to back up in the veins. As a result, fluid buildup tends to occur in the lower body (legs and feet), and sometimes in the abdomen. When the left side of the heart is weakened, oxygen-rich blood tends to back up in the lungs, resulting in fluid buildup there.

The malfunctioning body can also increase the secretion of a hormone in the pituitary gland called anti-diuretic hormone (ADH). This causes the kidney to retain more fluid, which increases blood volume and helps cardiac output, but also increases blood pressure, which makes the weakened heart work even harder.

These days when someone’s lower legs, ankles and feet were swollen we call it edema. It’s important to note that edema isn’t a disease but the symptom of an underlying condition, like fluid overload or heart failure (in which the heart is not pumping well enough to meet the body’s demand for oxygen). Edema usually begins with leakage of fluid from the tiniest blood vessels into nearby tissues. When the body senses that fluid is being lost from these vessels, it signals the kidneys to hold on to more fluid, increasing the volume of fluid in the vessels and leading to additional leakage. Edema can occur if you sit or stand in one place for too long, as gravity pulls water down into your legs and feet. The veins in your legs have small valves that help keep blood from running down toward your feet between heartbeats. If these valves are not functioning properly, edema can develop in the legs. Pregnant women sometimes get edema, and people who eat a diet too high in sodium (salt) can also develop it. Certain conditions, such as kidney or liver disease, can also cause edema or make it worse;

Signs that you might have edema include:
•Stretched and shiny-looking skin over a swollen area
•Increased abdomen size (ascites)
•Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing (pulmonary edema)
•Tightness of jewelry, clothing or accessories
•Low output of urine, even when you’re drinking as much fluid as normal
•A dimple in the skin covering the swollen area that remains for a few seconds after a pressing finger has been released

Symptoms of more serious edema (such as pulmonary edema) include:
•Difficulty breathing
•Shortness of breath when lying down
•Cold hands or feet

Your doctor  can  obtain a detailed medical history and conduct a full exam. He or she will listen to your lungs through a stethoscope to detect the presence of fluid (an indication of pulmonary edema) and look at the veins in your neck. Your doctor might order tests to help make a diagnosis. Results of blood and urine tests are useful for the diagnosis of certain types of fluid overload related to kidney or liver disease. Your doctor may order other tests to detect abnormalities in your heart’s electrical activity, size, shape and function during rest and exercise.

If you have fluid overload, your doctor will probably suggest that you reduce the amount of sodium (salt) and sugar in your diet. Doing so can be a very effective way of combating the buildup of excess fluid. Most North Americans eat a diet containing lots of processed foods, which are very high in sodium and sugar

Your doctor may prescribe oral medicines (diuretics or “water pills”) to reduce the symptoms of the condition. Diuretics cause the kidneys to pass more water and sodium, reducing fluid volume throughout the body.   This reduces the blood volume and the amount of blood that the heart has to pump, thereby reducing its workload. The goal is to maintain ideal weight by eliminating edema. A major side effect is a low potassium (K+) level, which can cause muscle cramping and abnormal heart rhythms. Reducing your Water pill consumption my help? Potassium supplements or potassium-sparing diuretics can be used either alone or in combination with other diuretics. Unfortunately, these medications often become less effective the longer one takes them, and eventually many people with fluid overload require hospitalization.

Typically, an in-hospital treatment for a serious case of edema includes intravenous (given with a needle into the bloodstream) administration of medications such as diuretic drugs, vasodilator drugs and inotropic drugs.;

An important way to regulate your blood pressure, and improve your overall health, is to eat a healthy, well-balanced diet. Consume a limited amount of high-sugar and high-fat foods and be sure to eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. Increase your intake of B vitamins, which have been proven to improve circulation and regulate blood pressure.

Many other factors, called precipitating factors, place an extra  burden on a failed heart. Identifying the precipitating factor, as well  as the initial cause of CHF, is important for directing proper  treatment. Precipitating factors include:

  • Stopping prescribed medications
  • Excessive intake of fluids or salt, sugar
  • Uncontrolled hypertension
  • Infection
  • Heart attack
  • Ischemia (lack of blood to heart muscle)
  • Cardiac arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm)
  • Anemia
  • Pulmonary embolus (blood clot in lung)
  • Hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid)
  • Hypoxia (low level of oxygen in blood usually due to lung disease)

While Heart failure occurs predominately in the elderly, but it can affect people of any age”


Medicine is still no substitute for not eating healthy food, not execrcising,  not getting plenty of sleep- rest, not educing negative personal stress!


Natural Way to Remove Excessive Body Fluid
Excess fluid, water in the blood,  can substantially increase your body weight, about 8-12 pounds even,  and can thus also cause you to feel burning in the chest when moving, walking, biking..
Removal of excess extracellular fluid with diuretics is one of the mainstays of treating patients with congestive heart failure (CHF).; Once begun, diuretic therapy is generally continued indefinitely unless cardiac function improves.
Now some people do suggest
1 The first step in getting rid of excess bodily fluid is to reduce salt intake as sodium, found in salt, will make your body hold water. Sitting in a sauna or hot tub will also help as it will increase sweating and the elimination of excess water. A range of plant foods as well as concentrated supplements, such as asparagus, watermelon, parsley and hawthorn will likewise eliminate excess fluids.  Try to add less salt to your dishes and read nutritional labels for the sodium content of packaged foods. The recommended daily allowance (RDA) for sodium is 2,500 milligrams, but most of us consume far more. Reducing your salt intake to the RDA is also good for general health and longevity.
2 Sweat gently. Sweating will naturally eliminate water and any activity that will help you sweat without placing excess stress on your body will help to get rid of excess fluids. Athletes trying to lose water weight before competition (usually to qualify for a specific weight class) have devised interesting and often extreme methods to accelerate sweating. However, for the layperson a brief visit to the sauna or a short session in the hot tub is all that is required. If you are unaccustomed to these, start slowly and do not push yourself. Avoid extreme heat if you have an underlying health condition, including but not limited to: heart disease, hypertension and kidney disease.
3 Drink more water. Although it may sound counterintuitive, the more water you drink, the less fluid you will retain. Restricting water intake will only place your body into preservation mode, as it will think that a drought is approaching, and make it hold onto water. Consuming water, on the other hand will increase the rate of sweating and urination, both of which will help eliminate excessive sodium and reduce water retention.
4 Consider herbal diuretics. A diuretic is any substance that accelerates fluid excretion. In addition to prescription medications used for the treatment of hypertension, a range of plants and concentrated plant extracts in pill form help eliminate excess water. Natural diuretics include sugar free tea, caffeine, asparagus, onion, watermelon, celery, parsley and hawthorn. 
The usage of Natural diuretics can aid in removal of excess fluids from the body and aid in treating of sciatica, kidney stone, lymphatic swelling, PMS, gonorrhea, liver disorders and high blood pressure.
