Bible Nutrition

(Christian Nutrition)

 

For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.  1 Cor. 6:20

Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31

Bible nutrition (also known as Christian nutrition) is clearly taught in the Holy Bible. Bible nutrition begins with God's instruction to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. In the ancient Hebrew Scriptures, we read: 

And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. Genesis 1:29

The word translated "meat" in the King James Bible can also mean "food." God had given our first parents every herb (vegetable) and every fruit of a tree for food, along with their seed. An excellent book on how to juice raw vegetables and fruits for health (and to combat disease) is Fresh Vegetable and Fruit Juices

 

 

 

There is now an abundance of evidence that apricot seeds help prevent cancer, and can even eliminate it in its early stages. For more on this subject, read  World Without Cancer - DVD Included

 

Pumpkin seeds are high in zinc, a necessary element for a healthy prostate in older men. Flower pollen and saw palmetto berry are also useful for maintaining a healthy prostate. For a more in depth discussion of these and many other natural remedies, we highly recommend Dr. Whitaker's Guide to Natural Healing : America's Leading Wellness Doctor Shares His Secrets for Lifelong Health!

Other ancient peoples, also descended from Noah, (though not Christian in their ancient cultures) knew much of the value of herbal remedies.  The ancient Chinese have made good use of many of the herbs God has given us.
 

Bible Nutrition in Leviticus 11

Bible nutrition is also found in Leviticus, chapter 11, where God makes a distinction between clean and unclean meats.  Christians are no longer under this Old Testament Law (according to Mark 7:19, Acts, chapters 10-11, and Romans 14:14). Yet, it doesn't hurt to voluntarily follow the dietary law set down by God in Leviticus 11. Let's examine a few Bible nutrition verses:

And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be cloven-footed, yet he cheweth not the cud, he is unclean to you. Leviticus 11:7

And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you.  
Leviticus 11:10


Christian nutrition can benefit from avoidance of pork and seafood (seafood without fins and scales) such as shrimp, lobster, crabs, etc. All were forbidden to the Hebrews in Leviticus 11. All have been proven by modern science to be high in bad types of cholesterol.  Pork, with its inherent danger of trichinosis, was forbidden.

Swine (pigs) eat any garbage they find. Seafood without fins and scales are usually scavengers also. We should care not only about what we eat, but also care about what we eat--eats!!


These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall ye eat.  
Leviticus 11:9

Bible nutrition can be seen again in God's command to eat fish with fins and scales. Fish with fins and scales are heart healthy foods, low in fat, and high in calcium and protein. Cold water fish, such as salmon, are also high in Omega-3 fatty acids, which are not only good for the heart, but also good for the integrity of the myelin sheath of the nerves. Tulip Gems highly recommends
SeaBear Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil Gelcaps - a pure natural source of Omega-3 fatty acids.

 

 
Ancient Scandinavians, living in a cold, cloudy climate, did not have adequate sunlight for the production of Vitamin D during much of the year.  But God graciously provided cod fish, rich in both Vitamins A and D. Tulip Gems recommends pure, Norwegian Cod Liver Oil, especially for those who live without adequate sunlight during the winter months.

Bible Nutrition in the Healthy Food Pyramid

Many nutritional experts now recommend a healthy food pyramid with a base of 3 to 4 servings daily of whole grains and legumes. (Bible nutrition can again be seen here, as flax, barley, wheat and rye are all mentioned as food for the ancient Hebrews.) The next level in the healthy food pyramid is 6 servings daily of vegetables and 3 servings daily of fruit.

The third level in the healthy food pyramid is 2-3 servings per week of low-fat dairy products and 2-3 servings daily of lean proteins, such as fish with fins and scales. The capstone of the "food pyramid" is a daily consumption of Omega-3 EFAs, extra virgin olive oil and nuts. 

Nutritionists will tell you that certain foods are nutritional super-stars.  Sweet potatoes, spinach, kale, oranges, strawberries, blueberries, cantaloupe, whole grain bread, oatmeal, fat free (skim) milk and broccoli all fit in this category. As a general rule, the closer a food is to the way God gave it, the better. In other words, the less food processing, the better.

We believe that proper Health and Nutrition is honoring to God, when done by a Christian. Any good program of Health and Nutrition should include moderate exercise, sunlight, fresh air and adequate rest. Stress, the number one cause of many illnesses, should be reduced through faith and trust in our
Lord Jesus Christ.

Christian nutrition should consist of healthy foods (including raw vegetables with the vitamins not cooked out of them). Vitamin supplements are often necessary for many people, due to loss of vitamins in modern food processing methods.  We suggest you visit the links below
