R.U.N. Ministries: Self-defining Nutrition
100 million people in the United States are currently obese including 39% adults This results in an additional $66 billion in health care expenditures 7.8 million new cases of diabetes 6.8 million new cases of stroke and heart disease, 539,000 new cancer diagnose What does all this mean? This means war- this is a life or death situation and war between you wanting better health and actually achieving it. 3 John 2: 1 Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well. Let's take a look at the word nutrition The Hebrew meaning of Ne/Nu: to hinder or restrain Tri means 3= spirit, soul, body ion= indicates an action, process, or state Therefore nutrition can be simply defined as: The ability to restrain from harmful things that affect your spirit, soul and body and choosing to adopt new actions or processes to create a better lifestyle Dr. Caroline Leaf has conducted elaborate research in this area and has proven that it takes your mind, body and spirit to fully experience nutrition. Thinking plays a dominant role in eating. Toxic thoughts can negate the positive effects of good nutrition. Healthy thoughts can enhance the effects of good nutrition and mitigate the effects of bad nutrition—to a degree. In fact, healthy thoughts lead to better food choices. Your state of mind will have a negative or positive influence on your digestive health, and your digestive health will also have a negative or positive influence on your state of mind. The fact is we are all unique, which means that a way of eating, exercising, and sleeping that works for you may not work for me and vice versa. I don't want to hold too long but before you go I want to encourage you to simply put the "You" back in n(u)trition by making a decision today to be more aware of your eating and exercise habits (or lack thereof) and begin to incorporate changes to create a more positive lifestyle with your health as you'll begin to see it flow in other areas of your life. Peace & Blessings!
