The Eight Laws of Health

In the garden of Eden, before sin, God created Adam and Eve in His image. They were perfectly formed. They were strong and beautiful.

The Eight Laws of Health

1. Nutrition – Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, or even cutting out meat completely, will promote good health, more energy, and a longer life.

2. Exercise – It is so important to get up and get moving! Exercise for 15 – 20 minutes at least 4 times a week to loose weight, strengthen your heart, and have more energy!

3. Water – Your body is made up mostly of water. When you do not take in enough water, your body dries up and cells begin to die. A healthy body is a hydrated body. Water cleanses the body by helping to eliminate waste and toxins. Drink 1 ounce per two pounds of body weight every day.

4. Sunshine – Spend time outside in the sunshine every day. The morning hours or the late afternoon hours are ideal. The sunshine provides needed vitamins and elevates your mood.

5. Temperance – Self control is so important in every area of life. Temperance means having a healthy balance between working, resting, faith, eating and drinking. It also means using self control to choose not to do things that are harmful such as drinking alcohol, doing drugs, or having promiscuous sex.

6. Air – Breathing fresh air is essential to good health. Breathing deeply fills the body with oxygen and can help to relax you when you are tense.

7. Rest –First, sleep is very important to maintain a healthy body. When you are exhausted and run down, you are more likely to get sick. Ideally, adults should get 6 – 8 hours of sleep every night. The hours before midnight are the most beneficial. Second, when God created the world, he sanctified the seventh day as His holy Sabbath. He knew how much we would need that time to rest away from the world and come to spend time with Him. By resting on the Sabbath, you will receive a Sabbath day’s blessing.

8. Trust in God – By trusting in God, we will receive the blessings of God. People of Faith are calmer, happier, and live longer that those who do not trust in God.

Ask God today to help you care for your health in a way that is pleasing to him. You will live a longer, happier life!

  3. Good job summarizing in a simple, attractive way. I have been blessed by these 8 natural laws of health since 1992. :) It is hard sometimes to pay attention to all of them, depending on what is going on in our life. I get out of balance and then come back the next week and correct myself.
  4. I couldn't help but notice the first letter of each of the 8 laws spells NEWSTART... LOVE IT :) sometimes God's best is to leave his fingerprint on a thing that only time can reveal to us. May God Bless you and all you do.
