NHP Diploma Fundraiser and Where Medicine Has Come and Gone

It goes like this. . . you walk into your Doctor’s office. You tell him or her about an intermittent problem you are having. Just like getting the brakes looked at over at the mechanic’s shop, this particular day you are not suffering the problem, but you needed an appointment, …

Final Review of The Glycemic Load Diet: Meat!

While I don’t agree with this book’s author at all about potatoes or pasta, and I have my own ideas about bread and what has happened to it in more recent times, chapters 21 – 23 of The Glycemic Load Diet are totally down my alley!  This doctor spells out …

The Diet Train: Why Jumping on Board is a Problem

Reading further through The Glycemic Load Diet, its becoming apparent that this doctor had begun living the Paleo Diet before it became a thing a few years after his book was published. If nuts weren’t so expensive here in Canada, it’s not a terrible diet if you have to cut …

The Lowly Potatoe Gets Picked on Again

As I prepare to get my Natural Health Practitioner designation as the career change of choice (finally), thoughts about first-world ways of looking at food, food as it’s seen in Scripture, and what to me is basic, common sense logic, tend to converge at times.  I’ve begun reading a book …

Taking Back Ground! Body, Soul and Spirit!

As I research who is out there in the world of alternative medicine, nutrition, and holistic concepts, Christians are few and far between. I wrote a blog post some time back wondering why it seemed that to join the holistic world, a Christian had to be mystical. A few years …

His Name Shall Be Above Every Name!

When I was a child, handwriting and where our letters came from, fascinated me. We had WorldBook Children’s Encyclopedias in the house that had certain themes. The one volume on language had a few pages showing the progression from Ancient Phoenician writing to the English lettering, and the progression from …

Writer’s Block Off The Grid! Now What?!

Yes, this blog’s sporadic nature has shone over the past couple years with posts showing up with months in between.  This hasn’t been due to writer’s block so much as trying to figure out how to balance hidden health problems with dwindling work I can do from home in a …

God Showed Up in the Struggle: Emmanuel – God With Us

Today I came across a fellow Christian author chastising people for being real online and showcasing their struggles while they claimed to trust God. I am so glad Scripture didn’t follow this admonition! If Scripture was put to screen as is where is, it would be R-rated in how deep …

Do You Have Super-Powers?

The image shows up in fantasy art, superhero depictions, descriptions in books and acted out in movies. Often the depiction involves the sending of interference between good and evil either on behalf of, or against the plans and efforts of an entity, human, organization, etc. What am I talking about? …

Is a Chemical-Free Christian, a Mystical Christian?

Who knew that going for fewer chemicals and more natural products in a person’s home and life would mean delving into and rubbing shoulders with some very strange spiritual philosophies as well. Just like going to a healthfood store means carefully sifting through hype from fact, with hype often accompanied …
