Spiritual Roots of Disease
November 19, 2020
Hosted by Dr. Bob King with Co-Host Cindy Hall
Though it is obvious that accidents, poor decisions, and wear can cause sickness, there are deeper roots to chronic and what are called incurable diseases. These involve more than chemistry and physics. In order to deal with such diseases, spiritual causes must be sought and rooted out. Chronic inflammation and clinical depression may be caused by more than what meets the eye. Christian natural medicine has a perspective that is both ancient and up to date. We are fallen creatures, living in a world that is at war with God and with truth itself. Though the struggle is invisible, it is none the less real. Attitudes such as fear, anger, unforgiveness, worry, guilt, and shame have powerful effects on the body, even for generations. Join us as we discuss what the Bible has to say about our health and well being.
Recover and Thrive

This program is about regaining and maintaining health and wellness through diet, lifestyle, and faith in God. Our instruction is based on eight foundational principles of health, recovery, and wellness. The typical diet and lifestyles for the United States of America is damaging to health, and the orthodox medical system does little more than stabilize a sick body. It has been said that we eat food produced by an industry that knows nothing about medicine, and we receive medical care from an industry that cares little to nothing about food.
We will discuss the state of health and disease, recovery from disease, nutrition, the role of sunshine, fresh air, exercise, proper use of water, rest, self-control and trust in God. Herbal medicine will be addressed, but I am slow to recommend and use herbs, since they do not heal the body unless the proper lifestyle changes have been made.
The perspective is that of a Naturopathic Physician, not a dietician.
