Home Made Health is HOME MADE!!!

Home Made Health is HOME MADE!!!

As in... Homemade Health! Made at Home!

If you were naked with no tools and no idea of what you should eat (sounds a lot like Kyle XY). How would you eat? What would you eat? If all you had was what God equipped you with (hands and teeth), whatever you ate would have Home Made Health!

Let's first consider what the Bible says...

Do you not know that you are a temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? {17} If any man destroys the temple of God, God will destroy him, for the temple of God is holy, and that is what you are.

1 Cor 3:16-17 NASB

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? {20} For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.

1 Cor 6:19-20 NASB

Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said, "I WILL DWELL IN THEM AND WALK AMONG THEM; AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD, AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE. {17} "Therefore, COME OUT FROM THEIR MIDST AND BE SEPARATE," says the Lord. "AND DO NOT TOUCH WHAT IS UNCLEAN; And I will welcome you. {18} "And I will be a father to you, And you shall be sons and daughters to Me," Says the Lord Almighty.

2 Cor 6:16-18 NASB

Let me Recap... Our Bodies are the Temple of God; God owns our Bodies; and, We should Glorify God in (or with) our Body!

As I began these thoughts... I weighed 200Kg and wasn't glorifying anyone (other than the processed food and fast food industries!). At that time I just received the news that I needed a Gluten Free Diet to combat Celiac Disease and Dermatitis Herpetiformis (CD/DH). It turns out that maybe Celiac Disease caused of a host of other problems I have, including Obesity, High Blood Pressure, an Enlarged Heart, and Type 2 Diabetes!

I was very skeptical that just not eating any Wheat, Rye, Barley or Oats - things that contain "Celiac Reactive Gluten" - would actually help me. I was even more skeptical about a number of researchers that believe everybody should live Gluten Free! If it was that easy - why doesn't everyone do it?

I soon had my answer... A Gluten Free Diet is not as easy as you would think. In most of what we eat, those tricky manufactures put in some gluten! Ever read a label that said "modified food starch" or "caramel color" (pick up a bottle of soy sauce!), well those are almost always made out of wheat!

Plus wheat has a ton of names to disguise that it is wheat! For information on How To Begin A Gluten Free Diet and how the Home Made Health idea came to us, click the link to Gluten (The X-Files).

Home Made Health is much more than just a Gluten Free Diet. The idea of Home Made Health is that we are responsible for our health. "Accountable to God" - if that is a better way for you to see it!

Home Made Health makes the assumption that if we are commanded to "glorify God in your body" then God must have given our body everything we need to do this. I know that sounds overly simple, but consider what "labor saving" things we have invented that do NOT fall into this classification. Here is a little story to demonstrate what I mean.

Assume a LION is hungry... That Lion sees a Cow standing in a field. The Lion quickly kills the Cow, using its sharp claws and powerful teeth and jaws. Then using the same teeth and jaws, it tears the Cow apart and eats it. Obviously God has equipped the Lion to do this.

Try That Yourself! If I saw a cow in the field, I can't even imagine how to kill the cow! Even if I picked up a rock... once it was dead could I bite into it and tear it apart like the Lion? Of course not, we are not equipped to do that. A person with strong teeth and jaws would never be able to tear the tough rawhide of the cow. Without at least a knife, we would starve!

That is the very point of Home Made Health! It is just eating what we are equipped to eat - to "glorify God in your body!"

It is an Amazing Standard because the farther you get away from it - the more unhealthy you become. In the forest near my place in Missouri, USA, there is a wild apple tree. I can walk up to it, pick an apple and eat it! God has equipped me will all that I need to do this! No Added Sugar! Now Gluten filled Pie Crusts! (Wow! I just crossed off the Sugar and Flour industries as backers of this site!)

That is an important point - virtually everything that is advertised is paid for by businesses that are there to make money to sell you something! Take a close look and you will see that the "common knowledge" slogan "Everybody needs milk!" is both misleading (some people are very allergic to milk) and paid for my people selling milk. Wheaties, "The Breakfast of Champions!" is not true for someone with Celiac Disease.

How can we trust them? Indeed, why do we trust them. They are in the business of profiting from what we buy. They make money selling us what they want us to buy so that they can make more money! Do they really care about our health? When they tell us to buy and use their product is it because it is the best for our health? Or is it mainly to earn more money?

Home Made Health is HOME MADE!!! To depend on any outsider is really to for get the most important issue, HEALTH!

It is not about eating "tasteless rabbit food" either... Using just your hands you can make olive oil, apple cider vinegar, old traditional soy sauce, lemon or orange juice, and torn up herbs. I am not recommending that you do, just pointing out that you can. If I put these together, I can make an out of this world salad dressing that anyone would agree would be delicious and of great nutritional value.

If you don't want to make these things yourself... Look for a company that will help you. I have seen Liquid Aminos that is basically old style soy sauce. Raw, unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar - or try natural unfiltered Coconut Vinegar! Lemon and Kalamansi (Acid Orange or China Orange) are easy to squeeze from the fruit and cold pressed extra virgin olive oil is readily available. Fresh and dried herbs (leafs or flakes) can be made with only your hands so enjoy adding them to your own "secret sauce!"

The world is yours! The above sauce, over a verity of fresh veggies would give you just about everything your body could ever need! Fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals (but in this day I believe in supplements - to be addressed in a future article).

Now you have the concept of Home Made Health... If your mind is saying, but, but, but, it is because the people trying to sell you stuff have convinced you that you should not be healthy! They convinced you that they are right, so that you will spend money making them rich. Your health is not a part of the over all picture. They want to make money based on "acceptable" standards that they wrote long ago.

If you do not believe... Then here is my challenge to you. There are Athletes with Celiac Disease who are Champions - find me ONE that eats Wheaties for breakfast. There are Athletes that are Lactose intolerant - find me ONE that thinks that Milk does their body good! It is a simple challenge! Yet it proves that the "common knowledge" that we share is that which is put into our head so that we will spend money to buy a product that is not really that good for us!

Home Made Health... is simply doing what is good for you! Be Healthy! or as Mr. Spock on Star Trek would say...

"Live Long and Prosper!"
