Plants as Natural Medicine
“[talking about plants]…their fruit will be for food and their leaf thereof for medicine.” -Ezekiel 47:12
The medicines recorded in the Bible where made with ingredients from nature and were called … liquids (i.e. liquid myrrh), scented oil, incenses, perfumes, odors, aromas, sweet savors, fragrants, spices, oleo-gum-resins, anointing oil, log of oil, and ointments.
Now, the “liquid” form of spices, herbs, and resins, is what people today call “essential oils“; as these plant liquids are essential for wellness. Essential Oils are 75-100% more health-promoting than dried or fresh herbs. Learn More »
The Holy Anointing Oil recipe that God gave Moses is recorded in Exodus 30:22-24 …
“Then the Lord said to Moses, Take the following fine spices: 500 shekels of liquid myrrh, half as much (that is, 250 shekels) of fragrant cinnamon, 250 shekles of fragrant cane, 500 shekels of cassia — all according the the sanctuary shekel—and a hin of olive oil. Make these into a sacred anointing oil.”
There are over 188 scriptures in the Bible stating the use of plants for anointing and healing the sick.
In Biblical times essential oils served for healing the sick, emotional clearing, burial, embalming the dead, stopping plagues (preventing death), and so forth. Back then, they embalmed the dead with spices to preserve, in an unaltered state, the body from decay; to keep the deceased from aging. If these spices preserved a person’s body after deceased, think what kind of anti-aging effect they could have on the body in its “alive” state of being!
Essential oils and/or aromatic plants mentioned in the Bible are: Aloes-Sandalwood, Anise, Balm, Bay, Bdellium, Calamus, Cassia, Cedarwood, Cinnamon, Coriander, cumin, Cypress, Dill, Fir, Frankincense, Galbanum, Henna-Camphire, Hyssop, Juniper, Mint-Peppermint, Mustard Seed, Myrrh, Myrtle, Onycha, Pine, Rose of Isaiah, Rose of Sharon, Rue, Saffron, Shittim-Acacia, Nard-Spikenared, Terebinth, and Wormwood.
The term “therapeutic-grade” essential oil is generally used to indicate a higher quality form of essential oil that are more potent to produce greater health benefits over traditional brands; however, there are no legal guidelines to regulate what should be considered as “therapeutic-grade” (anyone can use this term on their essential oils), but here are some key factors to consider when it comes to ensuring you are getting a High Quality essential oil.

A medicine becomes harmful and toxic when it is not in the “whole” image of nature. Either it will be completely synthetic man-made in a laboratory (secular), or it will be a dual combination of natural living plant mixed with synthetics which produces a duality outcome effect of life+death-promoting i.e. help+harm. Drugs (chemical-based remedies) come with negative side effects that contribute towards the creation of yet more sickness, creating a chain reaction of negative effects to unfold, like opening a Pandora’s box.
Food as Medicine
Mankind has also gotten off the path of wholesome eating; replacing healthy, natural, living, earth-made foods with man-made synthetic artificial chemically altered foods. By preserving what God gave us per earth-food, maintaining its pure natural true form, displays an up-lifting effect on the body on all levels of being: flesh, soul (mind-will-emotions), and spirit.
Food prepared in an unnatural way (microwave ovens) destroy vital nutrients and alter the molecule make-up of it rendering the food to unhealthy. Choose fresh produce (second choice frozen) and don’t overcook to “mushy”. For optimal health, avoid foods with artificial coloring, bleached-white flour and sugar (whole grains are healthy choices), ALL artificial sweeteners (healthy natural sweeteners are honey, agave, stevia, date sugar for mild sweetness, coconut sugar for brown sugar, and Xylitol – Xylitol does not promote cavities and looks-and-taste just like white sugar), artificial flavoring, artificial preservatives, hidden ingredients listed under “spices” (make sure each spice is actually listed individually), and unnecessary sugar added foods (sugar does not need to be in most products, cut back on sugar intake!), salty-foods, fried foods, fast food, etc. Choose lighter meals with less meat (smaller portions); fish and chicken more so over red meat. If eating red meat choose quality and lean. Pork is not a healthy choice of meat. Beans, lentils, rice, nuts are good choices of healthy eating.
Certification Labels for healthy food and products. Choose foods labeled “Non-GMO” (genetically modified organisms). The terms “natural” “all natural” and even “USDA Organic Certified” does not always mean better than traditional; Learn More »
Some type of exercise daily is also essential towards wellness; even if its a brisk walk three times weekly (minimum).
Making these few simple changes can make a HUGE impact on your health! -you’ll be amazed.
Positive Emotions as Natural Medicine
“A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” -Proverbs 17:22
“A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.” -Proverbs 14:30
Medical science acknowledges that 80% of all disease, both psychological and biological, are psychosomatically induced; therefore, drugs and surgery are useless for treating illness and dis-ease (body not at ease) when its root cause is on the emotional-mental level; not the physical level. Per God’s Universal Laws of “cause and effect”, when we correct the ROOT CAUSE of all our problems, then the physical effects will no longer exist.
Example: The dandelion. Many of us have learned through life experience that when we try to get rid of the dandelion flowers on our lawn by cutting them off with the lawn mower or weed-wacker the flower comes back. In order to get rid of the dandelion flower altogether is to kill the root (cause) of the (effect) flowering.
Psychoneuroimmunology is a proven study of the interaction between mind and body in regards to health and sickness. Negative thoughts-feelings (emotions) release negative chemicals in the body that over time causes negative effects on the physical level of reality – the body.
“First clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean.” -Matthew 23:26
Illness and disease must be treated on the level it rooted from in order to produce a true permanent healing. Dis-ease is a body not at ease. The physical body is not at ease because the spirit body is not at ease. The body follows the spirit per Spirit > Soul > Body. If the spirit body is not well then the physical body won’t be well either. The spirit body consist of our spirit and soul (mind-will-emotions). If sickness rooted on the “mental” level of being from stinkin’ thinkin’, then it must also be reversed on that same level. Just like a spoiled rotten piece of meat will grow unpleasant things, so will a rotten spirit and soul grow unpleasant things too; negative physical effects is a sign that something is negative within.
In some cases, its just a simple tiny move in changing-out a defiled TOXIC thought pattern to a Higher Good way of thinking that can cause a major shift in a health, wealth, and success.
“It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” – Mark 2:17 Jesus came to heal the sinners as it is they who are the sick ones. In layman’s terms: righteousness=health and sin=sickness. “See, you are well again. Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you.” -John 5:15
sin = transgression (disobedience) to Divine Law & Order for harmonic balance
“dis-ease” means a body not at ease
Many people find that they are unable to progress in life and achieve sought-after goals, dreams, or fulfill their Destiny due to emotional, verbal, physical, and/or sexual abuse. These deep-seated emotional issues may undermine one’s success, future and life. These negatives must be removed to move forward and upward in life.
Everyone (with no exceptions) is connected to the Holistic Divine Law & Order System, there is no escaping this reality, therefore learn about it and get in alignment with it, because going against it will only cause undesirable results in your life. There are certain Universal Laws that govern “wellness” towards an overall harmonic balance Eco life sustaining system on Earth. We were physically created to sustain from “nature” but not on that alone, we were also created to be in a personal relationship with God spiritually. [Note: all forms of religion are a man-made system and it is not the same thing as having a one-on-one personal relationship with God directly in full-whole measure.]
God is working through people today, giving revelation of root cause for dis-ease (a body not at ease): sickness is a result of a wounded spirit, emotional baggage, and sin (not being in alignment with the ways of God for living-being-doing).
CANCER is rooted in bitterness of holding a “grudge” against yourself, others, against life incidences, or holding a grudge against God. The anti-dote is FORGIVENESS and acceptance. Accepting “what is as it is” is an act of love. We are to accept God and people as they are (or who they choose to be). There are a lot of things in this world we cannot change, BUT we can change how we think and feel about it. We can pitch-in and help the planet~humanity in some way, doing our part in making things better off.
