The Scripture tells Christians to “honor God with your body,” and now physicians are finding the Bible is not only a guide to a healthy spiritual life but a healthy physical life as well.
Nutritional expert and weight loss specialist Dr. Don Colbert and Dr. Reginald Cherry of the television program “The Doctor and the World” have released a series of guides identifying the God-given health secrets provided within the Bible to lead a happy and healthy life.
The books provide a holistic approach for diet, exercise, nutrition and spirituality. Readers are given both a practical plan to solving their health problems and guidance for where to look in Scripture for prayers and readings related to their medical issues.
The new claims are part of a larger trend of looking back to ancient wisdom for contemporary health problems. Recently, scientists from the University of Southern California created headlines around the world for reportedly developing a regimen of fasting and diet changes that reduced risk factors for a host of diseases and health problems. They even claimed it slowed aging.
