You’re Not Going To Believe This…

Just a few days ago, I posted this picture on Facebook: And I shared a little of my fourth child’s story of how he loves to swing. After his 15-month vaccinations, his neurological development rapidly regressed. He began having physical health issues, some life-threatening. While many of those were reversed with holistic therapy, his sensory development greatly benefited from swinging daily. At 11-years old, I can find him on the swings whenever I am looking for him. He can (and does) sit […]

25 Days of Oils in the Bible

In December 2016, I had a 25 Days of Oils in the Bible on my Using the Scents God Gave You Facebook page. It was lots of fun and many people enjoyed the information, so I’m combining the posts here in one blog post for easy viewing! (*NOTE: These photos are copyrighted. Please do not download, edit, or use for personal or business use.) Day 1 Sometimes it is said that essential oils and aromatherapy are a “hippy thing” or […]

Are Essential Oils New Age? Witchcraft?

There is a lot of confusion and disagreement among Christians regarding essential oils. Are they New Age? Witchcraft? What about the physical and especially the mental health claims about them?! So how do we reconcile this? What is the truth? Well, we look to God’s Word for the answer, of course! The Truth Is… More than any other therapeutic substance mentioned in Scripture, aromatic plants appear over 1,000 times throughout the Bible. Seventy percent (70%!!) of the books of the […]

“The Soul is More Important than the Body”–The Phrase That’s Devastating God’s People

“The soul is more important than the body.”  In my six years as a Biblical Natural Health Practitioner, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard people say that in response to conviction to eat healthy. But what they are really saying is,”This is not an area in my life that I want to change.” And it’s so discouraging. It’s heartbreaking. It does not glorify God and it does not help encourage others in the very real and prevalent problems plaguing […]

Medical Science or Biased Opinion: The True Track Record of Modern-Day Medical “Research”

I’ll admit; I read medical research in my spare time and I enjoy doing it. I enjoy it mostly because every once in a while, Man will study something natural, something that God has made, and just find proof of God’s awesomeness!  But this is not what modern-day research is marked by. Modern-day medical research is plagued with a horrible track record, proving that much of the research (especially that for conventional, man-made pharmaceuticals) is biased, reworked, and/or simply false. […]

Breastfeeding From A Biblical Perspective

Breastfeeding can be a hot topic in any circle, including among Christians. Unfortunately, there are many things from Scripture that I feel are left out on the controversial topic of breastfeeding, both along the topic of simply breastfeeding itself as well as on the controversy of modesty vs. immodesty. Consequently, I would like to take a few moments to detail some of the often missed Scripture, as well as the limits we tend to have in America on this topic […]

The Daniel Fast: Where It Goes Wrong (And How To Make It Healthy)

I want to start out this post by commending the many groups of believers around America who dare to venture on a quest to honor God with their bodies every year by stopping and reconsidering the food they are eating. That is exactly what my own mission and purpose is every day. There is where our similarities stop. The Daniel Fast, as well-meaning as it is, is not something that I would recommend to anyone the way that it is*. […]

How To Care For New Moms Without Compromising Their Health

Just a few days after a beautiful home birth to one of her beautiful babies, my healthy friend who eats great healthy foods suddenly started developing edema symptoms. Her body was swelling everywhere and she felt horrible. And all this while trying to enjoy her beautiful newborn baby after a peaceful homebirth. After seeing her midwife, they realized it was from eating all of the foods church friends and family were bringing her! Foods brought with loving intentions, of course, […]

7 Common Defenses Against Healthy Eating

Sometimes when the Spirit of God convicts us about something, we become experts at defending our current position to prevent having to face the need for change. In the health world, there are a few main defenses commonly used against healthy living and eating. Some of them have good points; others are straight-up excuses. So I’d like to take a few minutes to sort through them together! Defense #1: Eating natural foods can become a “god” Their destiny is destruction, […]
