Today when I was worried and feeling down about the huge bills due amidst the coronavirus pandemic, a little voice who I will identify as the Holy Spirit, whispered to me, “God is greater than your bills.” I took a deep breath and let it out slowly and then inhaled a wave of abundant energy. Meditation renews the mind.
Then it hit me. If God is greater than your bills, then it follows to reason that God is greater than the coronavirus! This reminded me of a passage in the Torah and the Bible about the Hebrew boys, Medrach, Shadrach and Abednego, who refused to bow down to the king’s image, they were tossed into a fiery furnace but God went in the furnace with them and saved them from the flames. They emerged unscathed.
This is a time such as those times. Concerning the coronavirus and any virus, “On each side of the river grew a tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, with a fresh crop each month. The leaves were used for medicine to heal the nations.” (Book of Revelation chapter 22 verse 2.)
It is interesting to know that the WHO (World Health Organization) has a strategy for integrating traditional plant medicine into the national health care system. This means that they recognize the importance of plant medicine. However, “Big Pharma” cannot make billions on plant medicine because it is a gift from God. They make a profit by patenting and selling drugs not plant medicine nor herbs. After all, why would world populations pay for an herb that they can grow in their backyard?
Having studied the herbs, understanding how different foods can heal the body and mind and even relax the spirit, I am totally convinced that God has made an herb for each and every ailment. What’s more is that I have seen minerals such as magnesium shrink abnormal growths. I have seen the power of broccoli, green beans and leafy vegetables to reverse diabetes… just ask Eric Adams, the current Brooklyn Borough President soon to be mayor of New York (my prediction). He speaks candidly about changing his diet and reversing his diabetes.
Let’s not forget the power of carrots to help with brain health and support better eye sight. The people that survive the coronavirus virus will be the ones with a healthy immune system, healthy liver, healthy heart, clean blood and of a strong mind.
Some of the herbs that support our immune system are ginger, dandelion, turmeric, elderberries, ginkgo, Echinacea, Oregon and the list goes on for miles. Fresh fruit; lemons, oranges, strawberries, kiwis, pineapple are essential as is water. The body needs enough water to perform all of its functions. Dehydration can cause the organs to malfunction and mineral deficiency is the root of many illnesses. Diets high in fructose, animal meats and scavengers, such as swine, octopus, crab, snake, lobster, shrimp, table salt, white sugar, white flour, too much milk, over-abundance of cheeses, white rice, packaged snacks, lots of cookies, cake and ice cream, oil, lard, excessive alcohol and drug use, soda pops, diet soda pop, candy and other junk foods cause cells to degenerate leading to illness. So be careful to buy healthy foods the next time you arrive at a sold out supermarket in the age of the coronavirus.
Promiscuity will also weaken your immune system. A healthy lifestyle also includes making better decisions about your health by not sleeping around. People with multiple sex partners are at risk as well as patients that receive out-patient care,
Rest is very important at this time. The body needs to recharge sufficiently to perform optimally. Remember, our body is a self-healing mechanism. If you feed it the right foods, rich in vitamins, minerals, drink enough water, get enough rest, exercise, live right and believe God, you can ward off many viruses and disease.
