Recover and Thrive

Religion & Spirituality Podcasts

This program is about regaining and maintaining health and wellness through diet, lifestyle, and faith in God. Our instruction is based on eight foundational principles of health, recovery, and wellness. The typical diet and lifestyles for the United States of America is damaging to health, and the orthodox medical system does little more than stabilize a sick body. It has been said that we eat food produced by an industry that knows nothing about medicine, and we receive medical care from an industry that cares little to nothing about food. We will discuss the state of health and disease, recovery from disease, nutrition, the role of sunshine, fresh air, exercise, proper use of water, rest, self-control and trust in God. Herbal medicine will be addressed, but I am slow to recommend and use herbs, since they do not heal the body unless the proper lifestyle changes have been made. The perspective is that of a Naturopathic Physician, not a dietician.

Recovery from Disease

Vast numbers of people in the world live with high blood pressure, but there are others who do not suffer from this disease of affluence.

Poisons Bites and Stings

Spiders, snakes, wasps, etc. are not on the must see list for most people, but they are a fact of life. We may go many years without meeting up with a nasty surprise from nature, but they do happen.

Spiritual Roots of Disease

11/19/2020
Though it is obvious that accidents, poor decisions, and wear can cause sickness, there are deeper roots to chronic and what are called incurable diseases. These involve more than chemistry and physics. In order to deal with such diseases, spiritual causes must be sought and rooted out. Chronic inflammation and clinical depression may be caused by more than what meets the eye. Christian natural medicine has a perspective that is both ancient and up to date. We are fallen creatures, living in...

Move or Die! (The Exercise Your Body Needs)

10/29/2020
Few topics that health enthusiasts obsess over are more loved and hated than exercise. It is the centerpiece for many diet programs, and is at the heart of any strength training program. Many programs are fads, but the underlying reality is that we must either move or die. The body requires a certain amount of activity to keep the cardiovascular and respiratory systems working properly. Muscles obviously need to be flexed, stretched, and rested. But the bones also are designed to bear...

The Air We breathe, Much More than You Think It Is.

10/22/2020
Most of us seldom give attention to the air that we are breathing unless something calls attention to it. But much more sickness is caused by poor quality air than is generally thought possible. Though many of us are trapped in an environment that presents poor air quality, there are things that we can do to lessen the effects of depleted or polluted air. It does matter where you choose to live and what kind of house you occupy. However, even if you live or work in a sub-optimal atmosphere,...

Water: The Essential Medium of Life, Health, and Cleansing

10/15/2020
Next to air, water is the most essential substance to life. Our bodies are composed largely of water and we are not able to tolerate even the loss of 10% without serious degradation in the function of everything from the brain to the blood. Water is a hydrant, a lubricant, a solvent, and a cleaning agent. Outside of the body, we use water to bathe, washing toxic substances from the body. We also use water in our worship of God symbolically in baptism and repentance. A good bath is as good...

Healthy Lifestyle; What to Avoid

10/8/2020
There is more to being healthy than adding good habits to your lifestyle! There are things on the Must Avoid list. Most people will not be surprised by many of the topics, because we all know the Usual Suspects. But knowing to do good and going what you know are very different things. Many of the things discussed do not seem important, but the effects of bad habits are cumulative and can overwhelm careful work toward building health. Though the what to avoid list is extensive and obvious, to...

What Can I Eat to Retain Health
