God said, "there is life in herbs."

Life-giving, energized plants (herbs)

Eat herbs for abundant Life

Written within the Creation Story, in the First Book of Moses, called Genesis, God said "that within every living thing, there is Life" (Genesis 1:30). It sounds obvious, that is, that there is life in living things. But consider this, "When one eats living herbs one is actually eating "Live-giving substances," that are "still alive" that goes directly into one's body, and into living cells, tissues, and organs of the body, creating, even more life, within our bodies. When you cook food, you cook the life out of it. The food still tastes good and it still has food substances within it. Cook food, that is dead, still contains protein, vitamins, minerals, and other substances. But the life has been cooked out of it, especially if it is cooked "hard" and "long."

I am not saying that people should not eat cooked foods in their diets. I am saying that you should eat a good portion of raw or uncooked foods, especially herbs, because living herbs will give you life, that you may have "Life more Abundantly." Many of you already know these things that I am teaching here. One does not have to be a physician, such as I, to know how to eat well. My mother and two grandmothers were not highly educated people, such as I, but they knew very well that eating raw foods, as a part of their over all diet plans, was an approach to good health.

What I am suggesting is that each individual design, or put together a diet plan, for themselves that contains a mix, or a balance of quality foods, that has a good portion of raw, or uncooked foods in the plan. Study, or make an effort to learn what is best for your particular situation. Ask your health care provider for suggestions, if you need to. There are quality Hubs, that I even read myself, on dieting, to learn more about how I should eat to increase the quality of my life as I grow older.

One should find knowledge, where ever one can find knowledge. Pride has no place upon this pathway that we call Life. I obtain quality information from Life-Science Researchers living in Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas, North and South, including Mexico. I have dear friends that follow me in the Hubpages, and I follow dear friends that I have made as I cultivated my relationships on the Hubpages.

Because of the relationships that I have developed in the Hubpages community I am wiser, happier, and better off in this Life. There will come a time when our followers will encourage us to write more and to write specifically what is wanted by the public. People have needs, we have needs, and it is good when we can, sometimes, "hit" upon Hubs that will address needs. We are already doing this of course, but it would be even better if we did more of it.

Every time I complete a Hub, the wonderful feeling comes over me, of accomplishment, in my mission in Life, that is, the mission to "Decrease Human Suffering." In the case of this Hub, if only one person modifies his or her diet plan, in a way that increases the intake of "raw, living, foods," then I feel that my Life have served to help somebody. And "as you go, Peace."

Dr. - A very good Hub with helpful content - Voted up and useful, awesome and interesting. What about steaming herbs with your veggies? Is this a good idea to practice? Raw cold salads is where adding herbs would be tasty - I have always put hot steamed white rice over a cold salad and then sprinkle a balsamic vinegar & olive oil with spices on top. It may not sound so good but to me it is great. I wonder if it is nutritional? Happy New Year.

Hello Deb,

Your technique of putting hot steamed white rice over cold salad and then sprinkling a balsamic vinegar and olive oil with spices on top is a very exciting and nutritious way of preparing a wholesome meal. You are "thinking correctly" in your eating choices. Happy New Year to you also. Dr. Haddox

Thank you. We need to all consider eating more fresh foods in our diets. I have been drinking my green tea with finely chopped ginger. And yes, we all need to make sure our water remains pure and that there are plenty of fresh herbs for our world to be healthy.

Bev,I am sorry to tell you that your 4'6 flat bed-spring has little or no motaenry value or a market place. They were an inexpensive widely sold type of spring popular between the two great wars and for a few years into the fifties. They are not more than a metal hammock with no support in the middle, but they do last forever, and maybe, just maybe, provide a less hospitable home to vermin than an upholstered box spring.Marshall Coyle
