"We glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope." Romans 5:3-4
"And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine." Ezekiel 47:12
When we consume fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs, grains, nuts and seeds, we are nourishing our bodies with the life force it needs for proper function. When we consume man made products, food that has been refined and/or added to, or covered with harmful chemicals the body does not receive the nutrients it needs for proper function as well as adding toxins to the systems therefore creating an imbalance. This imbalance can cause illness, disease and other problems within the body.
How To Bring About Balance
Elder L. Tom Perry, a late modern day apostle of the Lord said this regarding the creation, "Now the creation of the world was complete. There was a place for man to live. The waters, the dry land, the night and day, the plant and animal life -- all were created for the benefit of mankind. The supply system had been completed. All that man would ever need from the beginning of time to the very end, if he was industrious, would be supplied him." (As A Man Soweth, General Conference April 1976)
So back to the question of How to Bring About Balance? Clean up your diet, only partake of those things the Lord has created and placed upon the earth for our benefit and use. Use herbs as a way to get the proper nutrients to areas of the body that are weakened. It is important to note that our bodies were created to know exactly what to do in order to heal. Herbs, essential oils, food, and other natural remedies merely support and aid the body with the healing process. Our bodies truly are amazing creations!
