"The tissues of the swine swarm with parasites. Of the swine, God said, "It is unclean unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh, or touch their dead carcass." This command was given because swine's flesh is unfit for food. Swine are scavengers, and this is the only use they were intended to serve. Never, under any circumstances, was their flesh to be eaten by human beings." Counsels on Diet an Foods, pg. 392. (1905)  Grains  Whole grains are good for all blood sugar disorders. Sugar is not good for the stomach. It causes fermentation, and this clouds the brain and brings peevishness into the disposition." Counsels on Diet and Foods , pg. 327.

"In order for the brain to have clearness and strength of thought retentive memory, and mental power, the muscles of the body should have exercise a portion of each day in order to preserve and improve health." The Health Reformer, March 1, 1873. (Ellen White)


Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.

"Pure water to drink and fresh air to breathe invigorate the vital organs, purifies the blood, and helps nature in her task of overcoming the bad conditions of the system." (Ellen White). Many health problems would be eliminated, including bowel and bladder problems, anxiety attacks, and food tolerance reactions, burning in the stomach, headaches, colitis pain, hot flashes and many other problems IF enough water were drunk.


This (sunshine) is one of nature's most healing agents." (E. White)   "If all would appreciate the sunshine, and expose every article of clothing to its drying, purifying rays, mildew and mold would be prevented....This is the only way rooms can be kept from impurities....Every room in our dwellings should be daily thrown open to the healthful rays of the sun and the purifying air should be invited in. This will be a preventive of disease." Health Reformer Articles. (Ellen White)


"In order to preserve health, temperance in all things is necessary - temperance in labor, temperance in eating and drinking." How to Live, pg. 57. (E. White).

6. AIR

"Air is the free blessing of heaven, calculated to electrify the whole system." (White)

"Thousands have died for want of pure water and pure air, who might have lived...These blessings they need in order to become well.


In general one should sleep when sleepy and not try to sleep more. Growing children require more sleep than grown-ups." (White).  "Ones best sleep is with the stomach practically empty. It is true that food puts one to sleep at first, by diverting blood from the head; but it disturbs sleep later.


"Gratitude, rejoicing, benevolence, trust in God 's love and care -- these are health's greatest safeguards." My Life Today, pg. 151. (White).   Science has proven now, that people who trust in God , and have faith, come through illnesses and surgeries better than those who do not trust in God.

Let physicians teach the people that restorative power is not in drugs, but in nature. Disease is an effort of nature to free the system from conditions that result from a violation of the laws of health. In case of sickness, the cause should be ascertained. Unhealthful conditions should be changed, wrong habits corrected. Then nature is to be assisted in her effort to expel impurities and to re-establish right conditions in the system. MH 127.1
