I receive many questions about the many different natural health supplements and products now available through network marketing.  Almost all of them are presented as “the” answer for all of your health problems.

            First, remember that I believe that food is your first medicine.  The master chemist that developed these medicines was the Lord himself.  He is the perfect chemist.  When you eat an apple it contains the precise amount of vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, enzymes, fiber, and water to make it a perfect foapples.jpgod.  And who knows what is in an apple that hasn’t even been discovered yet?  We think we know everything now, but the more we learn, the more obvious it becomes, we certainly do not know everything. 

           Second, food processing removes many of these nutrients, making them empty calories.  The food processing industry’s answer to this problem is to add synthetic or manufactured nutrients back in and call the food enriched or enhanced.  These synthetic nutrients are not easily used by the body and at the very least leave us mal-nourished.  Then, we over cook most food destroying the enzymes God put there to aid our digestion.  

          One thing I know for sure is that there is no single product that is “the” miracle for every single person.  Recently most of the questions I am getting are about the many fruit juices that are bottled and sold through network marketing.  All fruits contain antioxidants that are anti-aging and anti inflammatory.  If you hurt, chances are if you make one of your meals every day a big bowl of a variety of raw fruits, some, if not all of your pain will go away.  But, remember, there is no one miracle that works for every single person.  If what you need is an anti inflammatory, then the fruit will help.  However, if you suffer from some sort of yeast/fungus infection that much concentrated sugar (from juice) might actually make you worse. 

           Remember, raw food is one of the best ways to have Better Health, Naturally.
