Health & Wellness Ministries

Health Is Our Wealth!

Maranatha Health & Wellness Ministries is built on the counsel of the eight laws of health introduced by health reformer, Ellen G. White. These laws are acronymed NEW START which is unpacked as N-Nutrition, E-Exercise, W-Water, S-Sunshine, T-Temperance (moderation and abstinence), A-Air, R-Rest, and T-Trust. The goal of Maranatha's Health and Wellness Ministries is to continue to inform and provide resources and solutions on health topics to fulfill God's desire for us to prosper and be in good HEALTH!

The Veganist 

The world renown Heart Specialist is: Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn: CE.The Author of a best selling Health Book is Kathy Freston: KF
The following is an excerpt from an interview by a New York Times
Author of a best selling Health book, The Veganist by Kathy Freston.
Question KF: What is heart disease?
Answer: CE: It is the leading killer of men and women in the Western
                     civilization.It's a build up of blockage made of fat, choles
                     terol, calcium, and inflammatory cells. When the blockag
                     e is complete, the part of the heart fed by that artery is in
                     jured or dies. This is a Heart Attack.
               KF: Who develops Heart Disease?
               CE: Anyone eating a typical western diet.
               KF: What is the cause of Heart Disease?
               CE: It is the typical western diet of processed
                      oil, dairy, and meat which destroy the our life jacket of
                      our blood vessels-endothelial cells-the one cell thick
                      lining of all our blood vessels. Endothelial cells produce
                      a protective gas called nitric oxide, which protects our
                      blood vessels. It dilates our vessels, keeps blood flow-
                      ing smoothly, and prevents plaque and inflammation.
                KF: With such natural protection, why do we develop heart
                CE: Every meal of processed vegetable oils, dairy products
                       and meat(including chicken and fish)injures these endo
                       thelial cells. as these damaging products are consum
                      ed throughout individual's lives, they have fewer func
                      tioning endothelial cells remaining and less protective
                      nitric oxide. Without the nitric oxide the blockages build up
                      and cause heart disease and strokes.
