Living By Faith, Not By Sight

Living by faith, not by sight

"But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses. Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life."

1 Timothy 6:11-12, 17-19

Medicine~Hazardous to Your Health

What doctors may or may not know but probably won't tell you, and what the drug companies certainly know and certainly won't tell you, and what the FDA certainly knows but is afraid to tell you - I will tell you, because you must know.

Please hear me - doctors save lives. Drugs save lives. My son would not be alive without the surgical intervention of a liver transplant or anti-rejection drugs. But doctors don't know everything, and they certainly make mistakes. And drugs kill and cause permanent damage and disabilities. You must advocate for your own personal health, wellness, and safety. You must ask various health-care practitioners the pertinent questions, do your own research, and make a concerted effort to change dietary habits, activity levels, and seek natural alternatives, where available, to maintain your health and well-being.

The potential dangers and damaging effects of prescription drugs are precisely why the very first point of my Outline for Life - Physical Well-Being and the Wellness Questionnaire address this issue first - nothing is more paramount. Even if you are doing everything else right, prescription drugs could be tearing you apart.

For more information on prescription drugs, see my Outline for Life and the Wellness Excerpts from My Blog on the Resources page of my website, In addition, a great resource of information on prescription drugs, medical devices and implants, and alternatives can be found at Furthermore, to help you evaluate your prescription medications, I have created the Medication Worksheets, found on my Resources page next to the Wellness Questionnaire, that you can use to list all your medications and begin the evaluation process in association with your doctor or qualified health-care practitioner. Once you have your list, you can enter the appropriate information into the medication analyzer at to help you and your doctor begin the tapering process of non-essential medications. The recommendations given by the MedStopper medication analyzer are only approximations. The longer you have been on a drug, the higher the dose, and the more sensitive you are will require slowing down the tapering process significantly - often only reducing dosages by 10% every 2-4 weeks, or even slower if symptoms dictate. This is especially true of any mentally- or emotionally-active drugs such as the benzodiazepines (Ativan, Halcion, Klonopin, Librium, Restoril, Valium, Xanax) and those used for anxiety, depression, or sleep disorders. Please note that any reduction in a pharmaceutical will also require changes in your diet, level of exercise, and supplementation with appropriate nutraceuticals. This is essential for establishing and maintaining your healthy well-being.

God wants you to be healthy and well. And so do I. I'm praying for you.

Life Notes

We don’t see things as they are; we see things as we are. We see what we want to see; we believe what we want to believe. Truth is easily distorted; people are easily deceived. Until the pain of chang

Healthy Eyes

The eye has been called the window of the soul, and as Matthew 6:22 states, “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light.” The health of your eyes
