Drugs: A Hinderance to Growing Old, Healthy
On March 25, 2014 NewsmaxHealth had this to say:
“Thirty-one different prescription drugs: That’s the staggering number of medications taken by the average american over 65 each year.”
The article went on to say:
“That shocking statistic explains in large part why one of the gravest health threats many people face is not from disease – it’s from the medicines they take to fight disease. When patients take so many powerful medications in combination, it is inevitable that some of them will cause damaging side effects.”
In an article I wrote two weeks ago, I said that the two greatest hindrances to aging healthy were:
Improper Diet and Lifestyle, and
Drugs Do Not and Cannot Heal
The only substances God designed the human physical body to ever have placed within it are the foods God designed the human physical body to be nourished with.
God clearly defines what foods these were in Genesis 1:29 – exclusively living plant foods created by God, designed by God to nourish the human physical body God had created.
“And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. And the Lord God planted a garden eastward of Eden: and there he put the man whom he had formed. And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food. . . “
~ Genesis 2:7-9
“AND GOD SAID, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed (vegetable), which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for food.”
~ Genesis 1:29
Following creation, as long as man consumed only those living (raw) plant foods found in the Genesis 1:29 diet that God had designed the human physical body to be nourished with, you’ll not find a single recorded instance of sickness in the Bible.
However, once man started to deviate from God’s original Genesis 1:29 diet of exclusively raw garden foods (as man did in Genesis 9:3 by adding meat to the 100% plant-based diet and began cooking his food), sickness began to manifest and the lifespan began to shorten.
It’s interesting to note that every animal creation in the wild instinctively knows they are to consume all their food in its natural, raw form as served up by nature, whether that animal be vegetarian or carnivorous.
Animals do not cook their food, but rather consume it as served up by nature just as God provided and intended.
As long as these animals in the wild remained on the raw foods God designed them to be nourished with, sickness was almost non-existent.
But one domesticated wild animals (dog, cat, etc.) begin to eat boxed, canned, and otherwise processed and/or cooked foods, they develop cancers, arthritis, and many of the other degenerative diseases common to man.
Drugs Offer No Nourishment
Drugs offer no nourishment whatsoever to the body, but are rather toxic, chemical poisons that become extremely destructive when placed within the body.
All substances introduced into the body by injection (vaccinations), absorption, respiration or ingestion, which cannot be utilized as food, becomes a poison when placed within the body.
When these poisonous drugs are placed into the body, the body’s self-defense mechanism (placed there by God) is activated, and the body seeks the removal of this toxic substance as rapidly as possible. All such actions by the body are normal, but also damaging to the body.
Medical doctors use a system called allopathic medicine in an effort to remove the symptoms of disease. “Allopathic” or “Allopathy” is defined by Webster’s Dictionary as: “the method of treating disease by the use of agents that produce effects different from those of the disease.”
The Bible Warns About The Use of These Drugs
Rather than strengthening the body’s immune system with good nutrition to assist the body in fighting the disease, the approach of allopathy is to introduce a foreign substance (a toxic drug) into the body to “produce effects different from those of the disease”. But listen to what God has to say concerning DRUGS in Revelation 18:23:
“. . . for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy SORCERIES were all nations deceived.”
The word “SORCERIES” comes from the Greek word, “pharmakeia”, from which we derive the words “pharmacy”, “pharmaceutical” and “pharmacist.”
And what does a “pharmacist” dispense? DRUGS!
Here’s Webster’s definition of a “pharmacist”: “A person licensed to prepare and dispense DRUGS . . .”
The Bible tells us that in the end times, and surely we are living in such days, “all nations will be deceived by these SORCERIES”, by these DRUGS!
When a person goes to a doctor, what do they almost always leave the doctor’s office with? Is it not with a drug prescription, to be taken to a pharmacist (a dispenser of DRUGS) who fills that drug prescription?
Thinking this drug will often take away the physical symptom the person went to the doctor in an effort to find relief from, the person places that drug into their God created body. And while that drug may help relieve the symptom temporarily: high fever, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, headache, inability to sleep, and we could go on here, every drug has a toxic effect upon the body, called an “adverse reaction.”
When you hear a drug being promoted on the television to relieve a particular symptom, have you ever taken note of the potential side effects or adverse reactions the drug might produce. Some of the potential adverse reactions can even include “death.”
As you read the ads in various magazines, have you ever taken note of the pretty picture and words telling of the positive effect a particular drug might have upon a symptom, and then turn the page and read two pages of small print telling of the adverse reactions that drug might produce?
On my desk sits a 1997 copy of the “Physicians’ Desk Reference” manual (PDR). It was given me by one of the 65 medical doctors who have gone through Hallelujah Acres Health Minister training.
This particular PDR has 2,998 pages of potential adverse side effects a patient might experience from each of the drugs a doctor can prescribe.
Before a doctor prescribes a particular drug, do they look up the dangerous potential side effects the patient might experience taking that drug? Do they warn the patient of these potentially dangerous side effects?
Or do they on the pharmaceutical rep who told of them of the drugs ability to help a particular symptom?
Drugs Do Not Heal
Drugs are incapable of healing anyone of anything!
Drugs are only capable of producing additional physical problems for the body to have to contend with, thus making it increasingly difficult for the body to heal.
Sadly, most doctors do not seek the cause of an illness or seek to remove that cause so that the body can heal itself, but rather treats the symptom with a toxic drug.
Because the symptom is often relieved by the drug, the patient thinks the doctor has them on the right track to improved health, not realizing that the drug has the potential of creating new symptoms for which additional drugs will often be needed.
Treating symptoms with drugs will never heal anyone of anything, but will rather usually exacerbate the problem.
The Only Solution to Disease
The only way to remove symptoms permanently is to remove the cause of the symptom, and start nourishing the body with the nutrients it needs to rebuild its immune system.
Once the cause of the symptom has been removed and the immune system rebuilt with good nutrition, the body’s own self-healing mechanism, placed there by God, will almost always kick in and the body will heal itself in most instances of whatever the physical or psychological problem is and without any drugs.
How Dangerous Are Drugs, Really?
The FDA insists that drugs are safe enough for widespread consumption, even when one drug (Vioxx), all by itself, has killed more Americans than the Vietnam War.
The truth is that the vast majority of prescription drugs are not compatible with human biology. Rather than working to support human biology, they typically attempt to hijack the body’s biochemistry to achieve a desired measurable result, and a silent massacre is enacted on the people.
The leading cause of death in America… is conventional medicine:
9/11 Terrorist attacks:
– 2,986 people killed
Chernobyl nuclear accident:
– 4,000 people killed
Murders each year:
– 16,000 people killed
– 58,226 people killed
– 60,000 people killed
Prescription drugs (each year):
– 106,000 people killed
I find it so interesting (and sad) that when it comes to the street drugs (marijuana, cocaine, heroine, etc), alcohol, and nicotine, we teach our young people to just say “no.” Yet when it comes to a prescription drug or an over-the-counter drug, we have been programmed to just say “yes!”
Friends, there is no safe drug on planet earth!
EVERY DRUG is a foreign and toxic substance within the body that has an adverse effect upon it, and yet, not only are the nations being deceived with these drugs today, but even the Christian community is being deceived. HOW SAD!
Next week, the good Lord willing and if the creeks don’t rise too high we will return with another exciting issue of the Hallelujah Health Tip. Trust you will join us and that you will share these Health Tips with friends and loved ones.
