My journey toward health and wellness started when I traveled to Israel with a group of people from my church. While I was there I noticed that I felt so full of life. I was eating kosher, healthy foods such boiled eggs, fruit, vegetables, hummus, and whole wheat pitas. I felt so good. I had struggled my whole life with intermittent bouts of migraines, irritable bowel syndrome, and hypoglycemia. I had learned how to control the symptoms of these minor health issues by watching my diet. Usually on trips these symptoms became out of control because I wouldn’t have a lot of control over what I ate, but this trip was different. I was eating well and feeling wonderful. I paid a great deal of attention to that. It was also on this trip that our tour leader began to explain why he does not eat pork or shellfish and I was intrigued. I didn’t understand why a Christian who is not bound to the Old Testament dietary laws would feel the need to follow them. So when I returned home from that trip I began to do some digging in the scriptures, doing some internet research, and reading several books on this topic. One day as I was thinking and praying about this, I felt the Lord reminded me of the book ” The Makers Diet”. I had heard about this book but had never read it. I didn’t know anything about it. So I got the book and began to read. The more I read, the more the words of the author resonated with my spirit.
Since putting the principals of the Maker’s Diet into practice in my life I have witnessed firsthand the benefits of caring for the health of my body. I no longer struggle with migraines, irritable bowel syndrome, or hypoglycemia. I feel better at 40 than I did at 30. Now I am determined to educate and change the face of the health of God’s people one person at a time. “Therefore I urge you brothers and sisters in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God – this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” – Romans 12:1
