Laws of health

Health is delicately balanced on eight health principles. Unfortunately, we have lived for so many years under unnatural conditions; we have gone so far away from the path of these health principles, that the very last thing we think of when seeking health, is the natural way.

We have been so deeply impressed with the false idea that we must have artificial aids, that most people have lost faith and confidence in purely natural methods. The times we live in are so artificially arranged that most of us lack confidence in the simple things and simple methods of healing.

This article uses pieces of nature, such as the genome, the cell, and even the eye, as evidence that God is the Creator of all things.
A Good World Gone Bad
If God made the world, and our bodies, then the Creation story can give us clues about how we should live for optimum health. But how did what God called "good" transform into a dog-eat-dog world of carnivores, thorns, parasites, and other ugly aspects of Creation?

Signs You Need More Hydration
Dehydration is simply when your body does not have as much water and fluids as it should. Water makes up 60-80% of our entire body mass, so it makes sense that when we don’t consume enough, all kinds of issues start to occur! Consuming plenty of water each day is critical for your body to work at its best, so if you’re not getting enough, your body sends a whole range of signs that let you know you need to top up!
A Kidney Crisis
The following example of the kidneys explains one scenario of what could happen when your body goes into "crisis management mode" because it doesn’t have enough water.
