Want to be Healthy?

When we don’t value our bodies the way that God does, we have seen that people will abuse their bodies with food. They’ll abuse their bodies with alcohol. They’ll abuse their bodies with many different substances. They will eat too much, not eat the right food. What happens is is they don’t believe that they are valuable enough to take care of themselves. Where do that come from? Well, that came from childhood issues and childhood wounds. My wife and I have discovered this as affecting people dramatically who are overweight, who are suffering from sickness and disease.

Many many times they are the ones who have not taken care of themselves. They eat to feed themselves but they eat more than they need. They don’t eat the right foods they eat junk foods. Why do people eat junk foods? Well, some people say because, “I’m in a hurry. I just don’t have the time to be able to end up with a … Being able to eat better so I have to eat junk food.” We say, “No, you can plan around it.” What can happen is is we can end up being more healthy when we decide that we want to do that.

Now, most people we’ve talked to and the statics are overwhelming. They’re overwhelming for the problems. Do you know … This is something that I discovered in some research. Did you know that 29 million people have diabetes? 29 million people in the United States have diabetes. Do you know that another 89 million people are on their way to having diabetes? That’s over 100 million people. That’s one in three. It’s not just adults, it’s children. This is an epidemic. This is a huge epidemic.

Do you know where diabetes comes from for the most part if it’s not type 1 but its adult diabetes or child diabetes when it’s not type 1 it’s type 2 which is 90%

[inaudible 00:03:32] diabetes? Where it comes from is eating improperly. Not eating the right food, eating sugary sugar laced foods, eating foods that are not good for us. What happens is is that we have to have a real desire, a motivation, to get healthy. The real reason we need to do that is because we want to live a long time. How many of you want to fulfill your destiny? How many of you want to fulfill and complete your plan and purpose of why God put you here? He put you here for a plan and a purpose. He put you here for a reason but you know what? You’re going to go home early and be with the Lord early: If food is abused, if your body is abused, if you don’t exercise, if you don’t sleep properly.

Why do we not do that? Once again here we go it’s back to what happened to us in childhood. If we were abused physically, emotionally, sexually or neglected. Now, some of you were neglected. I’ve dealt with people that were neglected and one of the major issues in their life is they don’t even believe they existed because they never had anybody talk to them. They were just not able to communicate with their parents because either one of the parents was gone or both of the parents worked and they had to raise themselves. Horrible situation neglect is really really hard.

Abuse is just as hard and so what happens when we’re abused? When we’re abused we end up not believing because who would treat their kid the way we were treated that we’re valuable and important? If we don’t believe that we’re lovable or worthy of love and we’re not valuable and we’re not important, then why in the world would we take care of our bodies? Why in the world would we want to eat differently? Why in the world would we want to be healthy? It doesn’t matter why because we believe things about ourselves that are not true.

God says they’re not true but we can’t believe God because we can’t trust Him. One of the things that happens is, we really are in a problem. We have a great big problem. The problem is is I could sit here and tell you what to eat, what not to eat, what to do, what not to do. My wife and I wrote a book called, Leading Yourselves to Death. One of the things that we would want you to know is that we have information about what to eat and what not to eat, that’s easy. What we need is people to be able to realize that if you are going to be healthy you are going to have to want to be healthy. You’re going to have the desire to be healthy.

Where that comes from is is getting healed, getting emotional wounds healed. Do you know that most people are in pain that have been abused and neglected? They’re in emotional pain. Behavioral scientists tell us that people suffer from emotional pain and that will cause a person to want to get rid of the pain. Well, how do you get rid of pain? Well, there’s an infinite number of ways. There’s amazing ways to get rid of the pain but guess what one of the biggest ones is? Overeating. Eating sugar laced food, eating food that has high in carbohydrates. Eating junk food that’s salty that causes us to want to eat more and more and more.

By the way, we wrote this book and I’m going to tell you something. It is a design by manufacturers for you to eat more. How many women have a problem wanting to get rid of pain so they eat chocolate? Well, chocolate’s not good for you in too bigger quantities. There’s lots of stuff that’s not good for you. One of the things that we believe my wife and I … My wife is a naturopathic doctor so she has great knowledge of natural ways for healing. One of the ways that we believe is that we must come back to finding safe people. We must pray that prayer but guess what? If you don’t know how to do all that, then you’re going to need help.

We have the knowledge and the understanding from years and years of study. My wife has been studying natural health for over 28 years.
