Pure air, sunlight, abstemiousness, rest, exercise, proper diet, the use of water, and trust in divine power—these are the true remedies. Every person should have a knowledge of nature's remedial agencies and how to apply them. The use of natural remedies requires an amount of care and effort that many are not willing to give. Nature's process of healing and up-building is gradual and to the impatient, it seems slow. The surrender of hurtful indulgences requires sacrifice. But in the end it will be found that nature, untrammeled, does her work wisely and well. Those who persevere in obedience to her laws will reap the reward in health of body and health of mind.
The Creator has given us the tremendous gifts of body and mind with which to enjoy all that life has to offer. He desires that we appreciate this wonderful gift by doing our part to keep our bodies and minds in the best possible condition, that we might have a rich spiritual fellowship with our Lord.
We should present our bodies as living (live) sacrifices unto God.
We are under definite obligation to God to govern our bodies, rule our appetites, and control our passions.
As we begin to appreciate the great blessings of life and health that God gives to us, and as we study our bodies and begin to understand that surely we are "fearfully and wonderfully made" (Psalm 139:14), we will be inspired with reverence toward our Maker. Instead of abusing and marring God's handiwork, we will do all in our power to preserve it and to keep it in the best possible running order. We will then begin to see that God's laws of health are not an arbitrary set of 'negatives,' but suggestions and guidelines that, if followed, will be an inconceivable blessing.
Yes, God will truly bless when we place ourselves in accordance with His conditions - certain to be the most favorable to health and happiness.
