For many years we have followed a vegan diet – not using foods of animal origin. The basic diet simple:
Fruits, nuts, grains and vegetables, prepared in as simple a manner as possible, free from grease.
We live in the fresh air and sunshine of the country. We use town water if it is properly filtered and have plenty of exercise and rest.
We use no social drugs, tobacco or alcohol, and do not drink black tea, coffee, or cola soft drinks in our home. We try to be temperate even in our use of the good things.
Most of all, we trust in our Omniscient Creator and His promises – if we will obey His wonderful created principles, given solely for our benefit to protect and guide us, He will indeed bless and care for us as His people.
We would encourage ownership and responsibility for health management and lifestyle, with practical steps using the extent of information available to us today and the experience of others on the same journey.
It is responsible to ask doctors and specialists for details on medications and procedures for several reasons. Many now view the role of practitioners as being in co-operation with patients in a caring manner with demonstration of keeping pace within their fields. We need our doctors to save lives and reduce suffering. We too need increased awareness of what we are doing, the risks involved with treatments and help to reduce unwarranted medications or loss of life. The body is a complex structure that responds in several logical ways.
I for one would not be here today without the doctors and skilled surgeons who put me together again after a high-revving chainsaw ripped through my right chest!
