Health for Your Life! A Presentation by Diane Ronzino, CPN & Health Minister
The Source of My Passion I am living proof that generating a healthier body, produces mental and emotional well being. I am mandated by God to share with you: 1 John 3:17(Amp.)But, if anyone has this worlds goods (resources for sustaining life) and sees his brother and fellow Believer in need, yet closes his heart of compassion against him, how can the love of God live and remain in him?

What Is Health? The medical definition: Health is the absence of a known disease. Webster’s Original Dictionary: 1.The state of the living body, in which the parts are sound, well organized and disposed, and in which they all perform – freely – their natural functions. In this state there is no pain; sound state of mind; natural vigor of faculties2. Salvation; Divine favor or grace, which cheer’s God’s people.
Are You Malnourished? Malnutrition: faulty or imperfect nutrition; inadequate or imbalanced food intakeAccording to the definition of “malnutrition”, do you think you could be malnourished? Almost every man, woman, and child in America is malnourished - from an over abundance of poor, inadequate, dead foods and drinks
Spirit, Soul, Body God created us as triune beings – we are a spirit, who has a soul, and lives in a body The soul is our thoughts, emotions, will, & intellect Each aspect of our being is connected and affects the other. If we’re lacking in one area, it affects the other 2/3 of us Our mental/emotional health is tied into our physical health. If we are malnourished in our physical bodies, we are malnourished in our mental/emotional faculties as well God created our bodies to heal themselves – when the body is healthy, then our souls can become healthy – especially if we live a life of faith Each part of our beings must be in balance or our lives will be out-of-order
Bring Your Life Into Balance Stress Nutritional Management Supplement Spirituality Exercise Spirituality Fun & Recreation Healthy Eating Habits Water Weight Intake ManagementSpirit, soul, and body are all intertwined. If we’re lacking in one aspect, it affects the other 2/3 of our being.

Not All Supplements Are the SameThe Landmark Study, published in 2008, proved that not all food supplements are the same! Synthetic “Natural” Whole, live foods Think of a Lemon… You can use lemon juice from a plastic lemon You can squeeze the juice from a fresh lemon You can utilize the whole lemon (including the peel, which is full of nutrients)
Natural vs. SyntheticGod created living beings to eatliving foods for the sole purpose ofsustaining health. Healthy cellsreproduce health in the body andmind. We are meant to feed thecells of our bodies, not ourstomachs or emotions.When we eat altered or man-madefoods, the cells do not get theproper God-made nutrients in thefoods that are needful to sustainhealth, wellness, vibrancy, andincrease.
SyntheticKeep the lemon in mind…Synthetic – drug store variety (Plastic Lemon) Man-made in a test tube No enzymes or live nutrients needful for sustaining life Artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners Harsh fillers and binders Many are coated with shellac, which is totally resistant to stomach fluids to break it down; therefore, they stay in the bowels
Are your supplementssitting in your bowels – undigested?If your supplements are not whole, live foods, they can sit undigested in yourbowels, never entering your bloodstream and never feeding your cells.Consequently, your body is not reproducing healthy cells.
Natural ExtractsKeeping the lemon in mind… Health food store variety (Only pulp of the lemon) Need only be 15% natural ingredients to be labeled “natural” Weak enzymes Uses chemicals or heat to extract some of the nutrients, which destroys enzymes and the “aliveness” of nutrients Artificial colors, flavors, and sweeteners Very imbalanced Harsh binders and fillers Many are coated with shellac Most vitamins are manufactured in China today

Seriously Think It Over Vitamin sales in USA – over $25 billion annually With the amount of vitamins Americans consume, why aren’t we seeing major reductions in the major diseases? Actually, these diseases are on the rise! Could it be because the majority of vitamins are not being absorbed and utilized by the body? Could it be that the body doesn’t recognize, nor know what to do with the chemical vitamins? Could it be that they are actually toxic to the body?
You Need to Be An Informed Consumer Most vitamins are manufactured from the same company 90% of vitamins are made in China Most companies do not do any kind of clinical testing Manufacturing companies sell you (a business, store, doctor, person, etc.) their synthetic vitamins and put your name/label on the bottle Latest trend = a new, mass-marketed supplement

God’s Will For Your Life Gen 1:11-12: “Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth"; and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. “ 3 John 2: “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” Matthew 8:16: “…and (Jesus) healed all who were sick.” John 10:10: “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” Jer. 30:17: “For I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds”, says The LORD 2 Kings 20:5: “I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears; surely I will heal you.” Ex. 15:26: “For I am the LORD who heals you.” God says that you reap what you sow (Gal. 6:7) Sow life and health and you will reap life and health!
