N-E-WS-T-A-R-T THE KEY TO OUR HEALTH MESSAGE
Genesis 1:29 And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food.
Proverbs 23:20 • Be not among drunkards or among gluttonous eaters of meat,
WHAT SHALL I EAT? • Whole plant foods are bursting with nutrition! (Nutrient dense and calorie shy) Every day we should enjoy liberal portions of vegetables and fruit. Eat whole grains. Nothing is lost by refining and help prevent overeating and obesity as they are much more satisfying. Legumes and nuts replace meat and cheese.
Remember - EAT LIKE A KING • - at Breakfast. It is the most important meal of the day! A good breakfast should contain the most calories of any meal. Choose foods high in protein and complex carbohydrates. Don’t forget the fruit. Try to eat a good lunch and a very light supper. This will give you energy for the day and a better night of rest.
I WOULD TRY A HEALTH KEY (Sing to… I Would Be Like Jesus) CHORUS Be like Jesus, this my song, In the home and in the town, Be like Jesus all day long, I would try NUTRITION.
What kind of activity is best? • Walking is the ideal exercise. Other good activities include swimming, cycling, gardening, and yard work. One of the special benefits of exercising outside is that you can combine at least three of the health principles: sunlight, fresh air, and exercise. • A daily program of at least thirty to forty minutes is best for maximum benefit. The important thing is that you enjoy what you do and do it regularly.
Remember • A balanced and well-planned exercise program is one of the wisest investments you can make. Choose an activity that you enjoy and stick to it. Have fun and feel better every day!

Job Chapter 22:7 • Thou hast not given water to the weary to drink, and thou hast withholden bread from the hungry.
Proverbs Chapter 25:25 • As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country.
Your brain is about 80% water. Water keeps you thinking clearly.“Anything but water” is a bad tradition that puts an overwhelming osmotic load into the blood stream, making it sticky and flow poorly. Only water can create the proper environment for your blood to flow smoothly, help regulate your blood pressure, and promote vascular health.
What happens if I don’t drink enough water? • The kidneys have to work much harder to excrete toxins, and may be damaged. Each cell in the body needs water to function well, so inadequate water intake can cause disease. Chronic lack of water is linked to bladder cancer. Fatigue and headaches are a common result of drinking too little water. In the summer months, increase intake and stay ahead of thirst. When you are thirsty you are already dehydrated. Water keeps the body cool. It brings the heat from the inner organs to the surface of the skin in the form of sweat, and also acts as an evaporative cooler. Drink eight cups per day. Also, enjoy hot and cold contrast showers. The cold stimulates the immune system, and hot baths open the pores and eliminates toxins.
Remember • - water is of vital importance – use it abundantly for good health and vitality.

BENEFITS OF SUNSHINE • Benefits of sunshine include alleviating pain from swollen arthritic joints and even relieving some symptoms of pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS). It also helps ward off heart disease, hypertension, and autoimmune diseases like Crohn’s, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Juvenile Diabetes, MS, as well as obesity.
Remember • – it’s not all that bad. Enjoy the sun moderately and it will increase your vitality and good health.

Ephesians 5:18 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
ABSTAIN FROM: • Alcohol- We have found a way to say this is a health benefit – drinking only one or two drinks per day is going to benefit our hearts. • Coffee and Caffeine- Coffee is being highly praised for its anticancer phytochemicals and antioxidants. On the other hand, caffeine is addictive, stresses the nervous system by overworking it, can lead to depression and anxiety with the jitters, and in pregnant mothers increases the risk of miscarriage.
ABSTAIN FROM: • We need to rethink “moderation” and “balance.” The goal of temperate living is peak physical, mental and emotional well being. • Temperance really means to “abstain” from anything that is harmful and use in moderation things that are good. • Temperance does not just involve alcohol, tobacco, and drug use. It refers to all aspects of our lifestyle, whether it be overeating, overworking, too much play, or too little/much of anything. Such unbalanced living robs men and women of a rich, healthy, and satisfying life.
Remember • Common-sense changes in your lifestyle can add years, perhaps decades, to your life. What’s more, your quality of life can vastly improve. Plan right now to enjoy filling the years ahead with a balanced high quality life!

Enjoy the air the way God created it – fresh, crisp, clean, and with the scent of green trees and flowers. Trees, water, and wind help keep air fresh. Go into nature weekly and regularly.
It is important to open windows and keep the air circulating to cut down on high concentrations indoors.

The prestigious Lancet medical journal made this observation: Chronic sleep loss may not only increase the severity but also hasten the onset of age related diseases such as “diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and memory loss” (Lancet, October 23, 1999).
What about sleeping medications to induce sleep if you cannot get to sleep? • If continued over time, sleep medications will contribute to chronic fatigue and may lessen mental performance! • To get a good night’s sleep, make sure you have a totally dark room. Don’t leave bright lights, computer screens, or TV sets on. Use a night-light if you have to get out of bed for the bathroom – a dim red or blue light is best.
The Best Sleep Inducers are Natural Means • Engage in active exercise daily to best counteract mental and emotional fatigue. • Find an outdoor activity you like and can do every day – sunshine, exercise, and fresh air promote sleep. Skip TV viewing. • Avoid caffeine, even during the day. It commonly causes insomnia. • Maintain a regular schedule for going to bed and getting up.
An empty stomach promotes better sleep. Make evening meals light. • Don’t rehearse the day’s problems at bedtime. Count your blessings and fill your mind with gratitude and thanksgiving. Take a warm bath. • Seek a relationship with God who can bear your anxieties and refresh your spirit. • Science has shown that the Judeo-Christian “one day of rest per week” enhances work performance on the other six. Try a Sabbath rest!

We need help to improve our health and live in harmony with the NEWSTART principles. • Have you considered that the power to change may need to come from without rather than within?
Lasting change can only come when you realize how ineffective your own efforts have been to fight the disease or the habits that have brought on the disease. • We believe the only Higher Power that is worthy of our complete trust is God, the Creator of the universe, our forever Friend.
