THE NEW START: Natural Principle for Health and Healing
“The first wealth” as said by Ralph Waldo Emerson “is health”
The NEW START health principles are Basic Natural Principles for Health and Healing, hence the New Start is all about natural ways to maintain health and sustain life; succinctly, the NEW START lifestyle program is geared towards the sustenance of health, hence wealth in turn.
“Health”, as said, “is wealth”- not cash though. However, there is no unit of financial value enough to be placed upon good health. A healthy body can bear the more with ‘stressors’ and pressures than a weak, frail and sickly body could. However, once there is health – wealth could be made, as nothing will hinder your desires to work, earn and make a decent living.
More so, if health is preserved, you will not spend your hard earned money in hospital bill and over the pharmaceutical counter (pay-desk) for drugs.
“Good health is life lived at your full potentials – physically, mentally, socially and spiritually.” The word of God, in the Bible “, calls this the ‘abundant’ life“1
Let’s cite a little from the bible- In John 10:10 we see that its the enemy of God and man (Satan) that does us bad in every aspect of our existence, however, the principles we are to discourse here are principles that help prevent and heal health conditions. In essence, Heaven, does more than wish us good health, it proffered solution to man’s health conditions. – 3 John 2
The proffered solutions have been proven, over and again, to be very efficient in preventing diseases and preserving good health. “To help you experience this abundant life, God – the creator -has given some simple, easy-to-follow steps to better health.”
While we as humans cannot ‘control’ all the things that cause disease and fatal accidents, you can make choices that reduce your risks or dispositions to diseases and to promote optimum health.
THE NEW START HEALTH PRINCIPLES
Summarily, there are eight simple health principles or steps to better your health that you can begin to put into practice today. They are natural available occurrences and things and they are equally free of charge; the steps or principles are health laws arranged into the acronym- the NEW START.
Meaning of the NEW START acronym:
Basic Natural Principles for Health and Healing
N = is for Nutrition– this includes all that we put into our mouth for as food to supply our nutrients needs.
E = is for Exercise– work, walk etc. this just means activity to kick us out of dormancy.
W = is for Water– the essential liquid, good for all.
S = is for Sunshine– the needed sunshine for strength and vigor
T = is for Temperance or balance/moderation– all about intelligent caution about our habits and deeds
A = is for Air– the sustaining gift from God himself
R = is for Rest– to stop and refresh, to preserve and elongate life
T = is for Trust in Divine power– that power is of God the creator of all other 7 healing substances, that when relied upon make for the efficacy of each singular element.
These eight (8) simple principles to a new life experience calls for energy, commitment, consistency and time to be able to archive the desired intent. However, the reword is always astounding and worth the effort. There is nothing next to it in efficiency and thoroughness in the disposition of various diseases.
These eight(8) easy and natural steps of achieving optimum health may appear simple because of the constitutions of items and application; nevertheless, they are powerful in the observed and felt outcome.
With these simple remedies, using the NEW START health principles, you will be able to prevent sickness, enrich your life and decrease or cut your medical expenses to reasonable percent/minimum.
It is important to remember this important fact: “disease NEVER comes without a cause”. So if the cause is removed early enough, the disease may go away without additional therapy/treatment. But some conditions will need you to employ nature’s healing properties to assist the body’s reconstruction/healing mechanisms to remove the effect of the habit you have corrected, Because is of no effect to continue with old and wrong habits and yet want natural remedies to cure the condition or ailment.
Other Approaches to the NEW START Natural Principles of Health and Healing
There are some other preventive Health authorities that have developed other acronyms for the same simple principles for health and healing, one of such is CREATION. The acronym-CREATION– is being projected by Dr. Des Cummings, Jr, and Monica Reeds, MD, the specific details of CREATION is contained in their book; “Creation Health Discovery” they imply as follows:
CHOICE– Every day you have to choose to improve your health & happiness.
REST– Rest is precious! You should choose to get 7-8 hours of sleep daily.
ENVIRONMENT–I choose to surround myself with peaceful light, sound, aroma, and touch.
ACTIVITY– Exercising my brain is equally important to exercise my body.
TRUST– I willfully believe that God will protect and nourish me.
INTERPERSONAL– Family and friends –not work- will be an everyday priority.
OUTLOOK– I chose to have a positive and happy perspective.
NUTRITION– I will eat the original fast foods- fruits and vegetables.
A very important fact to note in “CREATION” is the first principle; which is CHOICE. This will mean that your health will, for the most part, depend on you: your desires (choices), efforts, and consistency.
Other Acronyms for these health principles: TEN TALENTS
Other Acronyms as seen in the book: Ten Talents, by Rosalie Hurd, B.S., Frank J Hurd, M.D, Includes;
(TEN TALENTS represents)
T–Trust in divine power– State of mind/ emotions
E– Exercise– Nature
N– Nutrition– Law and principle
T– Temperance– Law and principle/ intelligent caution
A– Air– Nature
L– Light– Nature
S– Sunshine– Nature
E– Energizing water- Nature
N–Nightly Rest– Law and principle
T– Thankfulness– State of mind
S– Service– State of mind and activity
If you observe closely, all these principles are revolving around nature and its force, and our individual mental condition or philosophy to life, not the philosophy of life, which, when shaped and influenced by the words and thoughts of God; that same God that should be “TRUST”-ed, when we trust in God ever always- our attitudes and outlooks in life will always remain positive which is prime in preventive and as well as corrective health sustenance and care.
The NEW START Principles
Nutrition is the first and a very vital issue to consider in the NEW START health principles
“Nutrition” according to the WHO “is the intake of food, considered in relation to the body’s dietary needs”. “Good nutrition” they added “- an adequate, well-balanced diet combined with regular physical activity- is a cornerstone of good health”. – World health organization www.who.int/topics/nutrition/en/
The NEW START is all about learning and implementing the simple but vital ways for healthy living.
For emphasis: Dr. Des Cummings, Jr and Monica Reeds, MD – in their book ‘Creation Health Discovery’ presented the very first principle of health as “CHOICE”. Yes! Choice: you must decide, choose and ‘committedly’ work towards your goal- which is health, restoration, and vigor also, and most probable life.
Your willpower is fundamental to the proper implementation of these life-changing health principles.
There is “… a special healing relationship between people and nature”3. By way of explanation, the quote means that we, as humans do much better when the body is aided by nature.
- You must pay close and particular attention to anything that affects your health, at home, office or anywhere else.
- Do not have too much variety of foods at a meal; three or four dishes are a plenty. At the next meal, you can have a change
• Grains, fruits, vegetables, and nuts are to be found all the food elements that we need.
There are more simple things to learn as we explore these simple, free of expense, principles projected for the purpose of archiving health and to elongate our life and existence. Be sure to practice what you understand is best for your health, because there will always be a reward for every action, the scientist will say; for every force there is an equal and opposing force— in preventive medicine you do not need opposing force, not to talk of an equal to it.
Comply with these simple principles and remain fit for life.
The NEW START lifestyle program is based on eight (8) simple principles that are simple day-to-day occurrence and opportunities which we overlook, but are very vital and too important for the actualization of our desire for optimum health. Being an acronym (made up from the first letter of each principles) of simple rules to health and life, each letter/item in the NEW START carries its effects in the maintenance of life, the body’s resistance to diseases and the promotion of health in the abundant sense of it.
Choose today to be healthy and do your part in fulfilling the simple requirements. Enjoy your life lived at its peak.
