For the Christian...Who is the Director?

 Let me ask a few question:
1. Are you trusting in your health care provider in place of God?
2. Are you disinterested in natural treatments because you don’t want to give up anything, or because you do not want to practice self-discipline?

I am so absolutely thankful for our physicians! These intelligent men and women have spent years of study and put in many late night hours of practice to be able to serve you and I. I love and need my family doctor and my gynecologist! They have been used to save many a life, mine included. I am very grateful for my naturopath. I am thankful for herbalists. But I need to remember that since God is the inventor of my body, He needs to be consulted first. I have heard sad stories from women that make my heart ache so I decided to do what I could to comfort them and redirect them to God as a first source. I have heard from countless women who are at the end of their rope, depressed, suicidal, and without hope after going through surgery after surgery and taking drug after drug – never to find relief. There are other options sometimes.

What have you got to lose by giving natural treatments a shot? You can start by changing your diet, exercising, and taking a quality vitamin supplement (I don’t mean the kind you buy in the grocery store, or even many found in health food stores). These are simple things. At least start there! Then you can pray and ask the Lord to lead you in researching natural treatments for your particular illness or symptoms. Yes, it may take some time and effort on your part. Yes, I will take prayer and patience. Yes, it may take sacrifice and self-discipline; but just give it a chance.

Please note that I am not claiming perfect healing for every single problem. But what are you waiting for? In the time that it took you to read this web page, you could have read some reliable information on glucosamine sulfate, alfalfa, or pantothentic acid for arthritis. You could have read how natural progesterone cream and Omega 3 fish oil have eliminated severe endometriosis pain in multitudes of women. You could have searched for studies showing fibromyalgia patients’ success with diet alteration and food elimination.

Let me give you a few tips. Pray first and then ask the Lord to guide you. If doing research via the internet, type in your symptoms and the word ‘natural treatments’, or type in any natural treatment that you've heard of. Example: ‘heavy bleeding natural treatments’ – or – ‘heavy bleeding raspberry’. If you have a diagnosis, then you can type that in instead of your symptom. Example:
‘simple hyperplasia natural treatment’ – or – ‘simple hyperplasia raspberry’. You probably get the idea. You can also go to
Diagnose Me and click on the button at the bottom of the page, and type in your symptom(s). Web Md is an excellent site as well.

As always…pray first.
Here is an excellent article by Nancy Leigh DeMoss relating to doing God's will/taking care of our bodies:

God is the Great Physician. He is the One who created our bodies and He knows them perfectly. He knows exactly what is wrong with us, and how to fix it – if it be His will. He should be the One we go to first when we are suffering ill health. Have you asked Him to direct you? He may direct us to a medical doctor, a naturopathic physician, an herbalist, a chiropractor, or to our local health food store, but He must be our first stop.
