Because your health determines your future...
If your body is unhealthy and deteriorating, what do you think is happening to your brain?
In our culture most look at life in this way: we're born, go to school, get a job, work for years, possibly raise a family and then hopefully we can retire before we die of some disease or are afflicted by significant mental illness.
We have been deceived into believing that succumbing to disease, disability and dementia (any form of mental diminishment or alteration - including depression) is normal and to be expected!
The word health most commonly brings to mind a body that is fit and trim but today that's frequently where we stop with our definition of healthy.
Most people know and care more about the functionality of their phone, the programs available on cable or Dish TV or options offered by their internet provider than they do about providing for or protecting their health.
The brain connection:
Few really consider or understand the effects that our overall health has on the brain, though it is responsible for everything that makes us function physically. It controls our cognitive function, ability to problem solve and apply reason appropriately to a given situation.
A strong, healthy mind places appropriate importance on life planning (financial and eternal life included) and is able to focus and to remain focused on executing on those plans. It understands the long term consequence of action or inaction and takes personal responsibility for both.
Our individual level of brain health is also clearly reflected in our personality, emotions and behavior.
A healthy, strong mind is one that can participate in and cultivate relationships, feel and act out of genuine passion and compassion and most importantly, it is fully able to engage on the spiritual level with God.
By God's design, the brain is the driving force behind what we do and who we are, it is the central processing unit for the entire body.
While physical disabilities effect and can greatly diminish our abilities to work and enjoy life, a brain with diminished or altered function profoundly negatively affects our lives and that of those around us.
It is a natural fact, if the body is breaking down, the brain - being an organ in that body will do the same, it cannot be otherwise!
There is no quick fix or magic formula when it comes to protecting or restoring our physical or spiritual health. Both require decisive daily action taken on our part.
We cannot be passive in our pursuit of either or we will fail. The stakes are unimaginably high!
Failure to protect and provide for our bodily health will lead to disease, disability, dementia and premature death.
For hundreds of millions, it will also lead to financial ruin - the inability to care for themselves or their families.
Failure to care for our spiritual health by committing and submitting our lives to the absolute Lordship of Jesus will bring eternal separation from God, eternity in Hell.
This site is dedicated to showing the direct connections between what we consume (food and theology) and their effects on our physical, mental, spiritual and financial health.
Once again, God is sounding the warning to people just as He has always done when He sees that we are on the path to our destruction.
Your health truly determines your future!
God is calling each of us to "health for eternity!"
