A Deeper Connection to Health Through a Deeper Connection to God

A Deeper Connection to Health Through a Deeper Connection to God

Have you ever stopped to consider why you do the things you do in life? Or how the things you feel affect your outer appearance? Finding a closer connection to the spiritual may be the key thing you need to achieve a healthier and more productive lifestyle, and all it takes is a little faith and a little bit of work.

Feeling Worn Down

Worn Out

If you find yourself exhausted at the end of the day when you really shouldn’t be, perhaps it’s time to look at some of the underlying issues which may exist. What is the status of your health? Are you getting enough sleep? Is there something going on in your life?

Seeking answers from God is a good place to begin. Look inside yourself for these answers as you ask for spiritual guidance. Stress is just as much of a health issue as something more physical, and finding that connection can help guide you to the answers you need to find some relaxation.

Aches and Pains

Back Pain

There are numerous causes for aches and pains in your body, not the least of which is poor posture. We tend to find ourselves slouching or leaning over when times are hard. This causes undue strain on our joints and muscles, bringing about the kinds of pain we really don’t need in our lives.

This can be fixed fairly easily. Making a point to stand and sit up straight is important, as is working to get into a good mindset. Certain back braces can help with proper posture, as well. Looking toward the higher power can also gives us answers we may need to alleviate concerns we may feel, helping guide us back to the straight and narrow, quite literally when it comes to posture.


The phrase “money is the root of all evil” can be attributed, in my opinion, to the stress we feel when we don’t have enough of it. Bills need to be paid, families need to be fed and, frankly, sometimes a little fun needs to be had.

In times like these, it’s important to remember that God has a plan. Ask him for guidance and you may find the path you seek. Trust in yourself and trust that God will have a way to lead you to whatever you may need.

Wrapping Up

Many health issues can be boiled down to just a couple things, one of the most notable being mental health. By this, of course, I refer to issues of stress and worry, rather than psychological issues. By being introspective and looking toward a power higher than ourselves, we can begin to unravel the mysteries which sometimes surround the things which cause us the most concern.

Through communication with God, a proper diet, meditation, communication and exercise, we can bring ourselves to new heights, both improving our lives and the lives of those around us. This isn’t something to consider lightly. With every smile you are inclined to share, you make the world a bit brighter.

It’s a Pew, Not a P.U.

It’s a Pew, Not a P.U.

The Lord may excuse you, accept you and love you if you have bad breath, but other humans may not. People visit the church to get nourishment from the pew, not discouragement from the P.U. As church folk, you must be mindful of the fumes that you emit during the Hallelujahs and hymnal praises. Only the Holy Spirit has the right to knock people down in the church. Your breath shouldn’t do that. Use these tips to ensure that your assembly with the congregation is a fresh one.

Stay Hydrated at All Times

Water washes away bad breath by removing some of the bacteria in your mouth and helping to clear the rest of your body of vile contents. Gatorade is an acceptable substitute only if you cannot tolerate any form of water. Otherwise, you can drink flavored sparkling water, or you can add a pinch of lemon to your regular water.




Floss and Irrigate Your Mouth

You must floss to eliminate this issue. Many people are moving away from traditional dental floss and using water flossers. These electric units run a stream of water in between the teeth and dislodge the particles that way. Nine out of 10 dental professionals recommend water flossers because of their level of precision. Pearlywhytes offers a detailed look at several of the top options. You can select the option that looks like it will work for you.


Use Mouthwash that Does Not Contain Alcohol

To maximize your oral health and tame your breath, you should use a product that is alcohol-free. Biotene is an example of a brand that works well in preventing dry mouth situations.



Chew Some Gum

Saliva is your friend when it comes to bacterial cleansing. Secondly, the gum releases a pleasant odor that can neutralize bad breath, at least for a little while. The best gum to chew is gum that has cinnamon in it, such as Big Red. Cinnamon has antimicrobial properties in it as well as anti-inflammatory agents. Specialists say that cinnamon helps to prevent cavities. You can possibly chew your way to dental health.

Tame Your Tongue

The book of James goes into a lengthy discussion about how difficult it is to tame the tongue. The author refers to the tongue as an unruly evil that is full of poison. The author also says that the tongue can defile the whole body. That rings true from a spiritual aspect as well as a nasal aspect. Not many people will care to get to know the rest of you if your tongue ejects bacterial poison at them when you breathe. You can combat this little issue by using a tongue cleaner. A tongue cleaner allows you to scrape away bacteria and get to those hard-to-reach places that can cause halitosis.

You should be able to assemble with the brethren and enjoy a non-malodorous service by following the tips mentioned above. You can have confidence that your praise will be pleasant to those around you.
