What is an Ideal Society?

An ideal society is promised, and soon, which is exciting.  But what is it?  What can we do to best prepare to be part of it and to help it come forth?

Look at the definition of a society; it is, “the aggregate of people living together in a more or less ordered community.”  Presently, our society seems to be positioned in the “less” category” as it appears to be in a state of disruption, confusion, and conflict. The conflict appears to center around individualism (priority given to the individual) and collectivism (priority given to the group or the state.)

Also, far from ideal, Americans are becoming less healthy as a nation in comparison to others (we are now ranked 38th); yet, our health-care costs are the highest per capita of any in the world, which is a massive contradiction with a message for us if we will pay attention.

Who Sets the Standard?

Healing My Back Pain

Healing back pain comes to the forefront of priorities after one has experienced a back injury that produces severe or unmanageable pain. I have personally had such an experience.

In 1970, I was serving as Bishop of the Boulder II Ward in the Denver West Stake in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The Elder’s President, Bud Harrison, and I (just the two of us) were moving a piano for a member of our ward, and I crunched my back. I chose not to go to the doctor and lived with it even though it got worse over time. Continue reading Healing My Back Pain

What I Have Learned Since My Heart Attack

It has been a little over five months since I had a heart attack and was rushed to the hospital. That little trip resulted in quadruple, open-heart, bypass surgery. Since then, “Heart Health” and “General Health” have been uppermost on my mind which, has lead me to undertake hours of research. (I have provided a link below in which I share my research.)

What I Have Come to Appreciate

Handel’s Messiah

I was sleigh riding with some of our grandchildren and they were talking about the most beautiful music they had ever heard. I asked them what is the most beautiful music ever composed? To help them, I told them that the lyrics were from the most popular book ever written.

My clues were not sufficient, so I had to tell them Handel’s Messiah from the King James Bible. For Christmas Eve, my Sweetheart and I listened to the King’s College Cambridge choir’s version; it is incredible.  It brings you to tears as the contralto sings of the Savior subjecting himself to “shame and spitting.”

How To Avoid A Heart Attack – Number One Killer

The topic of “How To Prevent a Heart Attack” comes a little too late for many who have suffered a surprise attack. No one ever believes it will happen to them, that is, until it takes place.

On 1 August 2016, my attention was dynamically focused because of a heart attack. I thank the Lord for it as I have learned a ton and many blessings have come out of it. Knowing what I know now, I believe I wouldn’t have needed a zipper up my sternum as a result of doctors performing open-heart surgery which required a quadruple by-pass. I believe what I have learned is important for you.

Kangen Water Benefits – Change Your Water – Change Your Life

kangen-waterWe have all heard the importance of anti-oxidant foods for combating disease, but few have heard of the great benefit of drinking anti-oxidant water with a high ph.  Dr. Horst Filtzer says, “A person cannot eat enough fruits and vegetables in a day, to come anywhere near the antioxidant power of 1 glass of Kangen Water.” Change your water, change your life.

Benefits of Kangen Water

Our Kangen machine makes such water and gives us two great advantages.  The anti-oxidant and high ph properties not only fight off disease while purging toxins in the body, but allow the fresh organic fruits and vegetables we eat to be used for their excellent nutrient value, so they are not needed to counter all the free-radicals that cause disease.  Hence, our food consumption is much more efficient – cutting food costs while increasing health.

Avoid the flu and the flu shot

Vitamin D sun The amazing benefits of Vitamin D.

Winter is coming.  One of the benefits for taking Vitamin D is to be free from influenza and build your immunity.

Vitamin D is generated in the skin by high-angle sun exposure, which you get in the summer time; hence, the higher incidence of the flu and cold in the winter months.

Vitamin D Deficiency

Most Americans are deficient in vitamin D (the sunshine vitamin) with consequences more serious than most of us have thought.  Dr. John J. Cannell, founder of the Vitamin D Council discovered that his patients in the hospital did not get influenza, while all the wards around those of his patients, were “involved in fighting the influenza epidemic.”  He noted that “All of the patients on my ward had been taking 2,000 units of vitamin D every day”.  Now, the recommended dosage is higher; for adults it is 5,000 IU/day and 1,000 IU per day for each 25 pounds of body weight for children.
