Your destination for insights on healthy living.
Greetings…So glad you are here.
I wanted to set up this site to help others gain whole health for themselves and their loved ones; spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally. While I certainly haven’t “arrived” I do think that this knowledge is very helpful for others and not easy to find. Specifically, since having children we have learned a lot about what healthy natural eating is and just how much it effects not just our physical bodies but our emotional and behavioral well being. Our two sons have a lot of food sensitivities and negative reactions to other products like soaps, medicine, dust, etc. Over time, in the process of trying to help them be their best selves we have learned the priceless value of eating organic, avoiding all artificial ingredients, limiting sugar intake and just how much the right supplements can help a person. I have had to veer away from mainstream medicine and look to chiropractors, nutritionists, the Brain Balance Program and similar thinking professionals and websites. As a result, our kids (knock on wood) hardly ever get sick and are thriving and healthy (which wasn’t the case before all the dietary and other adjustments).
Of course, living healthy in every way also includes such aspects as living an active lifestyle (which must be intentional these days), purposely limiting screen time in favor of interactions with live people, choosing to focus on the positive aspects of life, and (my favorite) living with the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior which means choosing to trust Him every day in all situations (this is a daily choice as it doesn’t come easy for any of us). If you know who you are in Christ and how much He loves you and wants what is best for you it is so much easier to enjoy your life through the ‘easy’ times and the difficult times. This website will have articles and resources that apply to these areas of our lives as well.
One thing I have noticed as I continue on this journey is that finding ‘truth’ on the Internet is becoming harder and harder. Whether a person is looking for spiritual Truth, medical truth, media/news truth, relational or nutritional truth it is increasingly hard to find with an Internet search engine, on the news, in magazines or in mainstream newspapers unless you know exactly the name of where to look…specific names of websites, books, etc that don’t come up on topical Internet searches. For that reason, a portion of this site will be dedicated towards providing readers with the names and (my) summaries of content of valuable websites, podcasts, books and more on a variety of topics. These resources have been a HUGE blessing to me and my family and I want to bless others with the information. If you find a resource valuable please pass it on to others.
This website will be developing slowly over time as it is a huge learning curve for me to do anything technical. Between 3 young kids and a surprise number 4 on the way this site will be a slow ‘take off’ but well worth the effort. I hope that you continue to come back and that you are richly blessed by the resources here.
And, as you consider everything going on during these times, I encourage you to remind yourself (or search out this Truth if you don’t already know it personally) that God is in control of even these times. In the end He wins. This time on earth is but a breath and then over. Only what we do for eternity lasts. God has you here at this time in history for a special and specific purpose no matter what that is. Be encouraged! Seek Truth in all facets of your life; physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally.
“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” John 14:27
Happy reading. Enjoy, Chayil
