“”Our bodies are the Temples of the Holy spirit who dwell in them””.Once upon a time ,I was tired all the time and overweight.I visited my doctor’s office before COVID19. He said,”hi Mrs X what can I do for you today”. I gave him my Chief Complaint which was tiredness. He looked at me and at my records ( laboratory results and data collected)And said to me ,Mrs X you need to do the following:
Your Hemoglobin is 8.1gm/dL.Take Iron 325mg by mouth with meals twice a day.Eat greens,cut down on sugar, salt, cheese burger, eat salad and vegetables.
(2) You should lose weight. You are overweight. With your height you should weigh 146lbs and not 180Ibs.I felt insulted by the doctor orders. Who is he to tell me what to do.I was not ready to loss weight. The doctor that cares about my nutritional intake but I was not ready to do something about it. I want to be eating my honey,bread ,rice as much as I wanted. So I left his office to never return again. I fired him. “”So whether you eat or do whatever you do is to the Glory of God”.And I started looking for another doctor. It took a long time but got one,he didn’t care about my weight or whatever that is happening to me. He just reported to it to me whatever are his findings without a solution. For example, I bleeded every month a lot during menstruation and had blood clots. My menstruation lasted seven days. I told him.He said you have fibroid. That was it,no Consultation with OB/ GYN doctor, none of them and no order for pap smear.My body is the Temple of God.So I fired him and wanted my old doctor back but can’t have him.So I went and followed his orders to change my diet, eat more green vegetables, cut down on Carbohydrate intake. My Hemoglobin improved drastically and I lost weight.(lost 12Ibs) 1Corinthian 10:31 “When you bring into your healthy eating, it changes everything. I now realized that when bible preaches about nutrition is a way of keeping people alive .If you are a smoker, and alcoholic you don’t like the nurse that educate you on “Stop Smoking ” because it will damage your blood vessels and affect your wound from healing.Yes because you feel that she is nagging you, whereas she cares.Striving to honor God in your drink and foods choices will bring not only a heart change, it will also change your choices in life”.I changed my insurance from HMO to PPO,and got a new doctor. He was good, very good. The first day that I got to his office, I told him the story about myself and my second doctor. That same day he referred me to OB/GYN.I saw the OB/GYN that same night. He assessed me ,upon completion of his assessment he revealed that I have big fibroid,order for insurance authorization for surgery. I knew that the surgery will go well.I eat well,drank soymilk, green vegetables and all the good stuff. Never give up,our bodies are the Temples of the Holy Spirit.
Picked the good things in the bible about nutrition. Jesus Christ used loaves of bread and fish to feed the multitude.But if you really look and pay attention, you can see that bread is carbohydrate and fish is protein and water to flush it down.Pick up the good stuff about your dad for example his hardwork and forget his alcoholism and womanizing.I remembered the study of B.F Skinner (1938) Operant conditioning in which good behavior are rewarded and bad behavior are punished. If you do your homework you get rewarded and if you don’t do your homework you get punished. You watch what you eat ,you will be healthier and happier. If you don’t pay attention high blood pressure ,stroke ,diabetes and complications.We should all evaluate portion sizes, our taste buds, vegetables, whole grains etc.It is not good to eat too much honey, nor is it honorable to search out matters that are too deep proverbs. 1 Corinthian 10.The doctors, nurses, healthcare professionals talk about our nutritions,lifestyle changes. Some celebrities such as Oprah Winfrey, Doctor Oz( Doctor Oz diet,doctor Oz weight loss)and so many have joined in preaching about good nutrition. COVID19 has sadly and unfortunately driven home on the importance of Zinc,Vitamin D and Vitamin C. Nobody is 100% sure about COVID19 PANDEMIC but we are getting better. We hope and look forward to the vaccines. Like mother Teresa said, be kind take care of others with your heart. “It’s not what you do,but how much love you put into it that matters “.Love is the secret of everything and last forever. And good nutrition is the soul of business.
