How, you ask? By simply addressing the roots of your life, health and relationship issues. That's what this Web site is about. It's about helping Christians live the abundant life you're entitled to. Because hurting people continue to hurt people, this site provides resources, services and products for Healed People to Heal People.

Life If you address the symptoms of your life, health and relationship issues, they will continue. That's why we prefer to identify the roots, then dismantle them according to biblical principles. Then, the symptoms will eventually go away.

Health Do you know one of the most preferred ways to distract a person? It is to inflict pain, illness or addictions in your physical body. This includes mental illnesses. That's why you’ll find information and products about health, the human body and what the Bible has to say about disease and illness on this site. Inclusive is life-changing information about the biblical roots of disease and illness. Be In Health Global owns this information and is gracious enough to allow it to be shared on this site.

Relationships My goodness, every day we have the opportunity to improve our relationships. The question is do we have the desire, the mental capacity and the willingness to give it another try. The other question is since what we've tried hasn't worked to improve our relationships, what should we do differently? Might we suggest learning how to identify the roots behind the issue -- that is what you can't see with the natural eye.

How We at Healed People, Heal People facilitate the healing process by offering personal ministry, group ministry, consulting, educational teachings and training. Our training was at Restoring The Foundations International, Be In Health Global and Pure Herbs Ltd.

Roots How do we identify the roots of life, health or relationship issues? First, we asses what happened generationally in your life and family; this contributes to your issue. Second, we present what you really believe about yourself, what you really believe about others and what you really believe about God that does not align with the truth of the Bible; this contributes to your issue. And please know that most people rarely know what beliefs they operate out of daily that is contributing to them being trapped in the same life, health and relationship issues. Next, you need to receive healing for who and what has caused pain in your life; this keeps your issue in place.

Joy We've had the privilege of seeing the Holy Spirit positively change lives on every continent using simple, biblical healing and deliverance. Be encouraged to browse the site to participate in the forums, listen to healing music or consider supporting this marketplace ministry. Your life, health, and relationships and can change for the better!

 

 



  • halloween

    By Redge Peifer

    People everywhere carve out pumpkin faces, hang skeletons on their walls, buy costumes … getting ready for devil’s night and, of course, halloween. Do you know where halloween originated?

    Halloween

    The een in the word Halloween refers to the een or evening before the day known as All Saints Day. But, what kind of saints were these? The saints of the Bible. No, All Saints Day was originally a festival honoring the druid priests who were into the occult and who were priests of satan.

    The Druids And Human Sacrifice

    Halloween has clear connections with their primitive and savage rituals in 2 BC [the pre-Roman, pre-Christian Celtic communities of northern and western Europe, especially in France [Gaul], Britain, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. They were the builders of Stonehenge where they would bring humans to be sacrificed in Britain.

    The druids worshipped pagan gods that included the sun god, the earth mother goddess and Sambain [lord of the dead]. Stonehedge was constructed to calculate the sun’s movements and then determine the most suitable day to worship the earth mother goddess – by the sacrifice of a human! The date selected was October 31, halloween! Think about it.

    Reincarnation

    The druids believed in reincarnation that is contrary to the teaching of the Bible. Hebrews 9:27 reads, And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment. According to their religion, the god Sambain judged the souls and decreed in what form their existence was to continue whether in the body of a human or in an animal. They believed that sinful souls of those who had died during the year had been relegated to the bodies of animals and through various gifts and sacrifices, their sins could be forgiven and the souls freed to claim a heavenly reward. It was common for horses to be sacrificed, but there were also a lot of human sacrificed.

    Men, mostly criminal, but not all – were imprisoned in wicker and thatch cages shaped like animals or giants. The druid priest set fire to these cages and the men were burned to death. They eventually included women and children in their horrible sacrifices.

    Sacrifice Of Children

    Please note from the Bible that Molech is the demon directly associated with the sacrifice of children. Molech was the Canaanite god of fire. To bring this more current, beloved reader, Molech is the demon directly associated with abortions. In the Bible, Molech was a demon god, that’s still active today, who demanded the sacrifice of living children. As Christians, we understand that children are living at the moment of conception. Thus, abortions are the killing or sacrifice of living children.

    They not only sacrificed unto false gods, but the druid rituals included eventually direct human sacrifices to the devil. They acknowledged him and worshipped him and multitudes of men, women and the little children were murdered.

    Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.
    Exodus 20:3

    And he ordained him priests for the high places, and for the devils, and for the calves which he had made.
    II Chronicles 11:15

    And he caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom; also he observed times, and used enchantments, and used witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar spirit, and with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of the Lord, to provoke him to anger.
    II Chronicles 33:6

    The Pumpkin

    The men, women, or children to be sacrificed on halloween would simply be selected by the druids. They would leave a pumpkin on the doorstep of the house to replace the victim and to let the other members of the family know that no one else would be harmed. Now, every time you look at a pumpkin on somebody’s front porch, you’ll know what it really represents.

    If you, your family, your friends or your church members have engaged in these occult practices, you should know you have opened the door to the occult. No one said that that satan or his demons play fair. If you open the door to the occult, then the respective demons enter. Demons do not leave because you come into knowledge. The Bible is very clear on how to break strongholds. The Bible is very clear about how to take of care demonic oppression in Christians. I strongly suggest you do so ... else you, your family, your friends or your church members are living with the presence of demonic influence. I'm more than pleased to answer any questions you may have. Please post your comments.

    Audio Teaching | Why We Fight With Those We Love

    You're all too familiar with how we can sometimes be kinder to people we don't know -- at work, at church and in the community -- than we sometimes are to our own family, children, siblings and spouse.

    Why? Because they know more about us than anyone. And, yeah, sometimes they tend to not forget even when we've confessed and the Lord has forgiven us. The consequence -- quarrels and fights that others are usually exposed to. Darn.

    Please click the audio file above [where the blue text is] and download this pdf, Why Do We Fight With Those We Love, that includes study notes with scriptures to accompany the audio.

  • Herbs are plant food substances. This is not a scientific definition, it is a practitioners definition. It is used by the people who make recommendations about how to build better health naturally. Herbs have been used since people began eating. They are not new and they were used long before there were people who called themselves doctors or scientists and they worked and they still do.

    There is a solution to every physical problem. It was meant to be that way. It is not experimental. Since there are so many physical differences between us, it stands to reason one herb may do more for a certain person than another but do not despair. There is an herb for you too. Often there are many herbs that are especially helpful for you, just waiting, to be discovered.

    Luckily when eating an herb if the wrong one is taken, nothing much happens and if you do eat too much of it, body mechanisms usually reject it and you leave it alone.Part of the fun is discovering your herb or herbs and in the process an acquaintance with herbs that help other people is gained.

    One of the ways to tell what an herb will do is to taste a little of it. This is much easier to do with a liquid herb than a tablet or a capsule but in any case it should be done before you ask anyone else to try an herb so it will at least be known if what the label says is in the bottle, is in the bottle.

    Please accept this offer to build better health naturally. The information was written because you are respected and appreciated, and loved. Someone does care about you and would like to see you well. Herbs are your birthright. Discover yours. - Dr. A.B. Howard

    Do you take prescription meds?

    Does someone you love take prescription meds?

    Did you know prescription meds is the leading cause of death in America?


    THE LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH IN AMERICA: CONVENTIONAL MEDICINE

    Cause of death

    9/11 terrorist attacks - 2,986 killed

    Chernobyl nuclear accident - 4,000 killed

    Murders each year - 16,000

    Americans killed in Vietnam war - 58,226

    Americans killed by Vioxx - 60,000

    Americans killed by prescription drugs (each year) - 106,000

    Americans killed by conventional medicine (each year) - 783,936


    (page 99-112) “How dangerous are prescription drugs, really? The FDA insists they’re safe enough for widespread consumption, even when one drug, all by itself, has killed more Americans than the Vietnam War.

    The truth is that the vast majority of prescription drugs are not compatible with human biology. Rather then working to support human biology, they typically attempt to hijack the body’s biochemistry to achieve a desired measurable result, and a silent massacre is enacted on the people.

    NATURAL HERB NO. 3 FOR DEPRESSION

    Licorice Root

    Licorice root is sweet, somewhere between 4 to 50 times sweeter than cane sugar without the calories and does not increase thirst. Licorice root can be so sweet, it has a bitter taste unless diluted. It is a specific for low blood sugar symptoms. If a person is not feeling up to par and has a habit of eating white flour products or sugar products, it is safe to assume they would benefit by taking licorice root. Powered licorice held on the tongue and allowed to dissolve coats the throat to relieve sore throat. The Egyptians, Greeks and Romans used licorice to combat the ravages of stress. When battle troops in the quest to conquer the world experienced stress, this was their mainstay.

    People today also experience stress. Licorice root is a remedy for stress, be it from interpersonal relationships, allergies, or lack of energy. Licorice root feeds the energy and hormone manufacturing glands known as the adrenals. As such, they are able to bring the entire system into better balance and promote well-being. When the need occurs for hormones, for either the male or female system, licorice provides the building blocks for the adrenals to make these hormones. This is especially efficacious for women who have had a hysterectomy, to prevent the discomforts of hormone imbalance.

    Dosage: 10 to 40 drops three to four times per day under the tongues or on food as a sweetner.

    NATURAL HERB NO. 4 FOR DEPRESSION

    Sage

    The Old English experience states, there is no need to die if sage is in the garden. The strong, aromatic, camphorous ordor along with the warm, mild bitter taste, has made sage a favorite as flavoring for soups and seasonings. Much is made today of hair color, so for those who desire no gray hair, sage with rosemary as a rinse, and taken internally will restore and preserve hair color.

    However, with continued use, the hair may be somewhat darker than the original color. Indeed, falling hair loss [where the root is not destroyed] and dandruff can be remedied with teh extract massaged into the scalp.

    Sage is a great regulator for sexual activity. Excessive desire, as well as enfeebled ability are both normalized. In taking enough sage internally to care for hair, this side effect of normalized sexual activity may also be noted. As of yet, no complaints have been reported with these oblongata [brain stalk] provides us with remedial action for breathing, heart and blood pressure problems.

    For those who use their voice singing or public speaking, sage is a remedy for laryngitis and produces a strong voice. Many recorded cases of periodic depression have been lifted by continued use, as depression can occur in many cases due to physical problems.

    Dose: 20 to 40 drops two times per day. As a rinse for the hair, one part extract to four parts water.

    NATURAL HERB NO. 10 FOR DEPRESSION

    Universal ER's

    Universal E.R. [Universal Emotional Remedy] This remedy is composed of rarified plant and wild flower essences. We owe the origin of the preparation and use of these herbs to relieve tormenting emotional states to Dr. Edward Bach, an English physician from the first half of the 20th century. This composite remedy is composed of those elements he found to be effective for many common, undesirable emotional states.

    Universal E.R.'s basic support combination is designed as he stated, ... for shock, panic, mental stress and tension, desperation, inattention and unconsciousness.

    Universal E.R. contains, in addition to the basic support combination, willow [for] resentment, holly [for] hatred, jealousy, suspicion, crab apple [for] cleansing [emotionally and physically] and honeysuckle [for] dwelling on thoughts of the past."

    The history of the origin of these remedies tells us that Dr. Bach put himself through the entire gamut of different emotional torments. He remained in each one of those tormenting states until he was satisfied he had found an exact remedy from the rarified essence of a specific wild flower or plant that pulled him back out of it. He then used these Bach Flower Essences with his patients and got good results. As Dr. Bach's experience grew, he wrote down the procedures for the preparation of his remedies, advised on their use, and freely gave them to the world so others could enjoy their benefits. Dr. Bach's instructions as to the preparation and use of these remedies are very exact. With them goes the expectation and desire of helping others in torment. Because of the rarified nature of these wild flower and plant essences, there is no need to fear an allergic reaction or addiction, and may therefore be freely used by adult and child alike.

    This combination includes the following natural herbs: support group, willow, holly, crab apple, honeysuckle.

    Dose: Familiarity with Dr. Bach's suggestions indicate taking 3 drops, 4 times per day. A good way to establish this routine is to take them before mealtimes (even if three meals per day are not eaten) and before bedtime. Take on or under tongue or rub into pulse points such as temples, wrist or side of neck. Dr. Bach assured us that the remedies must be taken faithfully, even if the need is not felt. An accumulating affect can be built up in this way, and one day the remedy will no longer be needed.

    Note: If an attack of the nerves should occur, put 12 drops in a cup of water or juice and sip slowly until the feeling lifts. If the person is unconscious, then rub the remedy, every few seconds, across the lips until conscious.

    About 10 years I learned a spiritual principle that I've never forgotten.

    First let me give credit where credit is due.

    I learned this biblical principle by listening to a series by Dr. Tony Evans of The Urban Alternative in Dallas, TX.

    Dr. Evans taught, whatever it is that you need from someone, from the Lord, that is what you should give first.

    I decided to apply this to my life and it works.

    You are familiar with the universal principle of sowing and reaping, right?

    You know that sowing and reaping is a universal principle, right?

    Meaning that it, the biblical principle of sowing & reaping, is operating in your life, Christian or not, believer or not, a lot saved or not, a little saved or not.

    I'll allow you to do the homework to find the scripture where this is established in the Word of God, The Bible.

    When I was unemployed in 2002, I had to pay my mortgage.

    If my memory is correct, at that time my mortgage was $1,007.49. Yep, I remember numbers very well.

    I had about $500 of the mortgage for the upcoming month and I didn't know where the other half was coming from.

    A had a friend who was also unemployed, like many Americans during that time.

    Her car insurance was due and she didn't have the money either.

    Well, guess how much her car insurance was, $500.

    As I was backing in the garage one day, I clearly heard the Holy Spirit say, "Pay her car insurance."

    She was fretting about how she was going to have to park her car and would not have a means to go look for a job.

    She was used to her family coming to her financial rescue because not only did they work, they also owned companies.

    Her family would not deliver the money as she was accustomed to -- this didn't sit too well with her.

    Meanwhile, I'm having a major verbal spat with the Holy Spirit.

    The conversation went something like this.

    ME: Lord, you know I don't have all of my mortgage. I need that $500.

    THE LORD: You trust me, right? After all, you've been telling people that I'm going to deliver you. Don't you believe it.

    ME: Lord, I've got to figure out where the other half of my mortgage is coming from in less than two weeks. I ain't seeing how this is gonna happen.

    THE LORD: Are you going to take action and demonstrate what you've been saying to people about me. Show your faith.

    Well, this little verbal tennis match went on for a while between me and the Lord.

    I ended up finding my friend's insurance agent and paying her car insurance.

    I asked him not to tell her who made the payment, ever.

    He said to me, aren't you unemployed too?

    I said, yes, and walked away.

    To this day, she doesn't know I paid her insurance.

    She called me a few days later saying, you'll never guess how the Lord provided for me. I was mad at my family for not giving me the money. I should not have tried to determine how the Lord was going to provide.

    I listened to her rejoice, smiled and rejoiced with her. She's still working and doing well to this day.

    I simply wanted to share this with you to let you know I tried, in leariness, applying this biblical principle to my life --> Give, What It Is that You Need, First, To Someone Else.

    You may have read or heard of news articles about aluminum being a possible cause of Alzheimer’s disease, paranoia and learning disabilities. Alzheimer's disease robs one of memory and life. It has to be one of the most terrible and dehumanizing things that torments our modern society.

    Aluminum has a special affinity or liking for the brain and nervous system and heads straight for them. This pollutes and interrupts their function. Herbal practitioners have also confirmed that the glandular functions of many men and women have been restored when aluminum contamination is flushed from the body.

    Many baffling and confusing conditions that have not responded to anything all of a sudden clear up. You may ask, ‘Where does all this aluminum contamination come from?’

    That is a fair question. Here are a few of the most common sources: soda pop, beer, etc. in aluminum cans, baking powder used in our baked goods, aluminum drying agents in powdered food to prevent caking, aluminum cookware, baked potatoes and other foods baked in aluminum, over-the-counter preparations for upset stomach that contain aluminum-hydroxide, industrial manufacturing processes that dump aluminum into our air and water and don’t forget one of the worst things for a woman’s body, underarm antiperspirants made with aluminum-chlorhydrate.

    You have to figure whatever you put under your arm will wind up in the breasts and other parts of the body. You can see this is especially bad for
    women, and imagine the problems it can cause with the breasts. Put another way, we can safely say that most cancers in the body are caused by poisons.

    Perhaps a little aluminum now and then does no great harm, but constant use of it, especially from so many man-made resources, can constitute a health threat. It is not just people who suffer from aluminum poisoning.

    You hear much these days about bones not being able to retain enough calcium. It may interest you to know that aluminum competes with calcium for absorption in the body and lowers the female hormone, estrogen. Our dogs and cats fall prey to this aluminum contamination as well.

    Manufacturers of pet food, especially the dry type in bits, commonly use aluminum to keep it dry. Interestingly enough, despite all the piles of scientific evidence from animal hair and skin analyses, our Food and Drug Administration and the National Institute for Health have shown no interest in investigating this situation.

    If you notice that your pet has dry lusterless hair, is listless, has no energy, chewing wallboards and such and attempting to catch unseen things
    in the air, suspect aluminum poisoning. Their blood tests quite often show, along with aluminum, pancreas, liver and kidney damage. Home-made dog foods can help a lot.

    For people and pets, the use of sea vegetables, especially one known as Bladderwrack, does wonders for flushing aluminum out of the body. This can be added to one’s diet rather easily. For a person, 10 to 40 drops of a type of algae, liquid Bladderwrack [known as an extract] or one to four capsules per meal.

    And for a pet, depending on size, one to ten drops per meal or one to four capsules per day. While you are detoxifying dangerous metals, it may
    also be wise to keep in mind using still another type of algae. Chlorella can be used to detoxify heavy metals such as mercury or lead. Where you find one type of metal poisoning, you often find others.

    Chlorella can be taken in the same amounts as Bladderwrack. Please be patient. It may take awhile, even months, but at least it is comforting to know you are on the right road. Is it any wonder that our bodies have become polluted as we have polluted the earth with our modern drive for profit and better living through chemistry? Thank the Creator that herbal remedies have been provided for the relief of maladies of our
    own making!

    Remember When and Golden Days are Pure Herbs that are useful in removing metals/aluminum from the body.

    This article was excerpted from the April 2011 Pure Herbs newsletter.

  • Success with Bladderwrack!

    My son suffered with blotchy skin and a cold sore that just wouldn't go away. He also had candida that I could not get under control no matter what I tried.

    I wrote to Solomon and he recommended the Pure Herb Bladderwrack for the both of us to get rid of excess aluminum we had.

    After two weeks my son's skin became much clearer and the cold sore he had for six months went away!

    Finally, I am able to keep candida under control. The high levels of aluminum that we had caused many of our problems and the Pure Herb Bladderwrack has halped us to eliminate the dangerous metal from our body.

    Thank you so much! I swear by your Pure Herbs. They are the highest quality and work so well!

  • womancrying

    Wow, this is a subject that tugs close to my heart strings, how about yours? Do you know how many people have blocked emotions? I do. Guess I kinda used to be one of them. I remember saying, I just really don't like crying -- especially not in front of people.

    Well, why not? The Lord created emotions, actually in the book of Genesis. There must be a reason He created tear ducts, and even biologically and physiologically there's a reason for them.
    I've typically preferred crying alone, you know, it's private, no one sees you and if it messes up your make up, you can straighten it up. Right now, my mind rolls back to two crying episodes I had where I just couldn't control the tears.

    First crying episode

    I was on a business trip in South Carolina and I was tired after landing at the airport.
    I was exhausted emotionally and mentally.
    I decided, I'm not going to work today, instead I'll eat lunch and rest, after all, I don't know anyone in this city.
    I ate lunch and when I finished, a stranger in the restaurant walked up to me and said, "Baby, the weight on you is so heavy, I felt it across the restaurant and I've been sitting over there praying for you."
    I remained quiet, I didn't know her.
    She asked while standing at my table, “May I pray for you?”
    I said yes and she began to pray while touching my hand [the waitresses are now looking because they know we didn't come in together].
    Bear-sized tears began racing from my face because this woman called out everything that was wrong with me and I didn't know her.
    Yes, people in the restaurant are really looking now.
    After praying the lady said, do you have car, did you come here in a car.
    I said yes, my rental is outside.
    She said, go in the car, roll up the windows and cry as hard as you need to.
    I did just that.
    I exited the restaurant, drove across the street to a bookstore parking lot, went way in the back of the parking lot -- and baam, I wailed like an animal in the forest who was wounded and no one was there to rescue them.
    I'll never forget that cry.

    Second crying episode

    I'm now in another state years later and I spontaneously decided to have a meal with a lady I'd met like about two days prior.
    I'd been doing some reflecting on my life and thought I was fine.
    The Lord was dealing with me on an issue I really didn't want to talk to people about.
    After all, nothing is ever going to change, so why bother even addressing it.
    Sometimes you just have to accept things the way they are right?
    No, wrong!
    Why is that wrong, because what I believed DID NOT align with The Bible, the Word of God.
    If what I believe doesn't align, then what I believe is not true.
    The Word of God is true, it is the truth, which meant what I believed was a lie.
    Yes, it had been a reality for a long time, but it was a lie I believed because the situation had been that way for so long.
    Well, let me tell you.
    I sat at that meal table with just about a perfect stranger.
    We were eating.
    And I tried to be civil and talk, do the small talk exchange.
    Lord, that didn't last for two minutes.
    The tear ducts RIPPED and there was no way I could conceal the tears.
    This wasn't a simple cry, the veins in my soul had ruptured and here I am with a complete stranger.
    It's a beautiful thing when you can communicate with a person -- human spirit to human spirit -- without using any words.
    Really in this particular situation it was the spirit of the Lord in me connecting with the Spirit of the Lord in her.
    That lady rubbed my right shoulder and the top of my back.
    She didn't say a word.
    Underneath my breathe I eked out the words repeatedly, "They are not better than me."
    I just kept repeating that because that had been my inner struggle that started centuries before I was born.
    I just bought into the lie because it had been passed down generation to generation to me -- and in ignorance I accepted it.

    Well, Beloved reader, I simply share with you today, you have the freedom and are released to cry.
    Cry in public.
    Cry in private.
    Cry with friends.
    Cry with enemies.
    Cry with your spouse.
    Cry with the Lord holding you.
    Cry in your car.
    Cry in the bathroom stall at work.
    Cry in your woman's lap.
    Cry on your man's shoulder.

    It's okay; you are now released and have the freedom to cry.

  • birthcontrolpills

    Do you take prescription meds? Does someone you love take prescription meds? Did you know prescription meds is the number three cause of death in America according to the Journal of American Medicine?

    Are birth control pills safe? Any drug that artificially manipulates the natural hormonal activity of the body will have negative implications and side effects.

    What is the birth control pill? How Does it work? Is it Safe?
    by Paul Weckenbrock, R. Ph.

    The birth control pill is any drug which uses artificial hormones to keep a woman from getting pregnant or from staying pregnant by interfering with her normal fertility.

    Are all forms of the pill the same?

    No. There are several types of the pill on the market, but they basically break down into two groups: combination pills and the progestin-only minipill.

    The combination type contain two artificial steroids that mimic the effects of naturally occurring hormones, estrogen and progesterone. Some pills work in a monophasic way, keeping the dosage of hormones the same throughout the pill cycle. Others work in a biphasic or triphasic manner which alters the dosage of artificial hormones two or three times respectively through the cycle of pills, attempting to produce fluctuations similar to what a fertile woman would undergo naturally.

    The progestin-only minipill uses only one artificial hormone, progestin, which is a steroid that has a progestational effect similar to natural progesterone.

    How does the pill work?

    The pill is designed to interfere with several normal functions of fertility in order to make a woman 1) unable to conceive due to temporary sterility or sperm immobility, and/or 2) unable to carry a pregnancy to term [an early abortion].

    This process can be accomplished in various ways.

    Suppressing ovulation: When a woman ovulates, hormones released from the pituitary , a gland located at the base of the brain, stimulate her ovaries to ripen and release an egg. The combination pill usually interrupts the release of these pituitary hormones resulting in no egg being released from the ovary, thus preventing pregnancy from occurring. With no egg available for fertilization, the woman is chemically sterile. The progestin-only pill, however, has a weaker effect. It generally does not suppress ovulation.

    1. Inhibiting Implantation: Another important aspect of fertility is the process by which the lining of the uterus is replenished and maintained. After an egg is fertilized, it normally implants in this lining [endometrium], drawing nourishment and sustenance. The progestin component of the combination pill and the progestin-only minipill cause the inner lining of the uterus to become thin and shriveled, unable to support implantation of the embryo [newly fertilized egg].

    2. Impeding Sperm Migration: Preceding ovulation, a woman’s cervix produces a watery mucus through which sperm swim to meet the egg. The mucus also provides nourishment to sustain the life of the sperm cells. This mucus thickens under the influence of a progestin and so impedes sperm migration.

    3.There are two other factors in a woman’s fertility that may be affected by the pill.

    Making changes in the Fallopian Tubes: Progestins lower the efficiency with which the fallopian tubes propel eggs from the ovaries toward the uterus. This can cause the embryo not to reach the uterus in time to implant successfully.

    4. Stopping a Pregnancy: After an ovary releases an egg, the woman’s cycle is controlled by a gland that is formed from the now-empty egg sack, the corpus luteum; this normally functions long enough to give an embryo time to implant in the uterus and for the placenta to begin to support the pregnancy.

    However, hormones from the pill can cause the corpus luteum to function inadequately, allowing the lining of the uterus to be shed before the embryo can successfully implant.

    In summary, a woman’s natural fertility requires several systems and organs to coordinate smoothly. The synthetic chemicals in any type of birth control pill interfere with this coordination, adversely affecting her normal fertility and any accidental conceptions.

    How effective is the pill?

    In theory, the pill reaches an effectiveness of over 99%, but in practice the rate is much lower. Between 1.9% and 18.1% of women will experience an unplanned pregnancy in the first year of using the pill.

    Surprise pregnancies with the pill are due to a number of factors. Interactions between the pill and some other medications interfere with the proper blood levels of hormones necessary for their birth control effect. These drug interactions may be significant with the commonly used low dose pill where slight alterations in hormonal blood levels can result in more frequent ovulations and hence unplanned pregnancies. Another factor in pill pregnancy rates is not following directions, sometimes due to the lack of motivation, especially in younger women [ages 15-24].

    Is ovulation always suppressed?

    No. Ovulation occurs in 2% to 10% of cycles of women taking the pill. If 60 million women worldwide are on the low-dose pill, there would be 1.2 to 6 million ovulations per cycle. This is known as breakthrough ovulation, and it is even more frequent with the progestin-only pill.

    What happens when ovulation does occur?

    When the pill fails to prevent ovulation, the other mechanisms come into play. Thickened cervical mucus may make it more difficult for the sperm to reach the egg; however, if the egg is fertilized, a new life is created. The hormones slow the transfer of the new life through the fallopian tube, and the embryo may become too old to be viable when it does enter the uterus.

    If the embryo is still viable when it reaches the uterus, under-development of the uterine lining caused by the pill prevents implantation. The embryo dies and the remains are passed along in the next bleeding episode which, incidentally, is not a true menstruation even though it is usually perceived as such.

    Does this mean the pill can cause an early abortion?


    Yes. Preventing the newly conceived life in its embryonic stage from being transported to the uterus and preventing implantation in the wall of the uterus are the abortifacient properties of the pill.

    Why haven’t I heard about this before?


    The Pill manufacturers and many in organized medicine are mainly concerned about the pill’s medical side effects and its effectiveness in preventing pregnancies and are less concerned about how the drug achieves its effectiveness.

    Unfortunately, many otherwise pro-life physicians and pharmacists find it hard to admit that these abortifacient properties exist because they would have to discontinue prescribing and dispensing the pill if they were to remain consistent in their respect for life at all its stages of development.

    Pro-abortion organizations and their lawyers readily admit the early abortion potential of the pill. In February 1992, writing in opposition to a Louisiana law banning abortion, Ruth Colker, a Tulane Law School professor, wrote, "Because nearly all birth control devices, except the diaphragm and condom, operate between the time of conception ... and implantation ..., the statute would appear to ban most contraceptives." In 1989, attorney Frank Sussman argued before the U. S. Supreme Court that " ... IUDs [and] low dose birth control pills ... act as abortifacients."

    Is It Safe? What are the common side effects of the pill?

    There is a range of risks from serious or fatal to minor and trivial. The following is a list of the most common side effects experienced by women taking the pill. These effects are dose related and not every woman will experience them, but the risks still exist. The synthetic estrogens of the combination pill cause many of these; the progestin causes others and is the only risk factor in the progestin-only pill.

    Heart and blood abnormalities

    Blood clots can form, restricting or blocking the flow of blood to critical organs and other body systems, possibly causing permanent damage. For example, a blood clot in the heart would cause a heart attack; in the brain it would cause a stroke or brain hemorrhage; a clot which moved from elsewhere in the body and lodged in the lung would cause a pulmonary embolism; in the kidneys a clot would cause a renal artery thrombosis and kidney damage; in the retinal arteries it would cause temporary or permanent blindness.

    Studies continue to indicate approximately a 2-fold increased risk of fatal heart attacks among users of the current low-dose pill when compared to non-users. This risk is lower than the risk experienced with the older high dosage pill, but it continues to be significant. Similarly, the risk of a fatal brain hemorrhage is increased 1.4 times when comparing users to non-users. Among women who smoke, there is a 12-fold increase in fatal heart attacks and a 3.1-fold increase in fatal brain hemorrhage.

    High blood pressure and alterations in the blood clotting mechanisms may be seen in women on the pill. This may contribute to a 3-11 times increased risk of developing blood clots in Pill users compared to non-users. The risk is especially great for women who smoke and/or are over 35 years old.

    Cancer

    Breast cancer has been repeatedly associated with using the pill.

    Breast cancer has been increasing at an alarming rate in recent years, especially among young women. Breast cancer will kill more than 44,000 American women this year alone, a 1991 report noted, predicting 175,000 more new cases, especially among young women.

    Why is there such an increase of breast cancer among younger women? Note first that women rarely develop breast cancer shortly after they start taking artificial hormones. It is generally not until ten or more years after usage was initiated that women develop breast cancer. Then note that in the United States, since the mid-1970s, it has been common for the pill to be prescribed for girls in their teen years.

    Common sense connects the link between giving the pill to young girls in the 1970s and the later increase in breast cancer 15 to 20 years later among women in their late twenties and thirties. This conclusion was demonstrated in a study which found that Swedish women who took the pill in the 1960s incurred a five times greater increase in breast cancer when compared to non-users.

    The increased risk of breast cancer is seen in younger, nulliparous women [never having borne children], and in long duration groups [greater than five years] of pill users. Large tumors and a worse survival rate are associated with the pill’s use at an early age.

    Will the newer formulated low-dose pills decrease the incidence of breast cancer? A consensus of understanding has not been reached, and another 10 to 20 years of experience with women using this form of the pill must be gained before more definite conclusions can be reached.

    Breast tenderness, enlargement, lumps, and milk secretions also may occur in women using the pill. Doctors are warned not to prescribe the pill to women who are known or suspected to have breast cancer. It is difficult to say what aggravating effect the pill’s hormones would have over a truly random sample of women taking the pill.

    Cervical cancer and cervical dysplasia increase among women who use the pill. How long the pill has been taken, how many sexual partners a woman has had, at what age she began having intercourse, whether she smokes, the hygiene of sexual partners and the transmission of the human papillomavirus [HPV] are also factors in cervical abnormalities. Because of these several factors, the connection of the pill and cervical cancer may be clouded over. However, there is no doubt that the promotion of the pill has resulted in early intercourse which may be the more direct cause of cervical cancer.

    Endometrial and ovarian cancer appear to have a lower incidence in both women on the pill and in those who have been previous users of the pill. Much of this data comes from studies of women who were using the higher dose estrogen/progestin pill. Currently the low dose monophasic and triphasic pills [less than 50mcg of estrogen] are the only birth control pills available on the U.S. market. It is not known if a similar protective effect will be experienced with the currently used pill. More time is needed to study this issue, and the slight protective effect is hardly a reason to take the Pill at the risk of so many other side effects.

    It should also be noted that these forms of cancer are rare and primarily occur among postmenopausal women in their fifties and sixties. Second, these cancers tend to occur in those women who had long cycles [i.e., with a prolonged estrogen-dominant phase] or those who have a family history of these types of cancer. Third, extended breastfeeding amenorrhea offers the same type of protection against these cancers since the menstrual cycle would be suppressed and therefore the exposure to estrogen suppressed.

    Liver tumors in younger women [15 to 40 years] have increased as the use of oral contraceptives has increased. Almost unheard of in this age group before the use of synthetic hormones became commonplace, liver tumors usually do not occur until the sixth decade of a woman’s life.

    A study by the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer found a large peak in the 26-to-30-year age group which corresponds with the increased use of oral contraceptives in this age group. Liver cancer in women on the pill is typically associated with those over 30 who have used it more than four years, but cases of liver cancer in younger women have been cited.

    Other cancers: Skin cancer [melanoma] has also been found to increase among women on the pill. Naturally occurring estrogen is involved with maintaining healthy skin tissue. It is reasonable to suspect that exposure to the more potent synthetic estrogen in the pill increases the risk of this type of cancer.

    Cycle irregularities

    Women who take the pill have been reported to experience bleeding or spotting in mid-cycle, changes in menstrual flow, and even loss of menstruation, which can lead them to wonder if they are pregnant. For some, painful menstruation [dysmenorrhea] has been reported to worsen, even though many women take these hormones in an attempt to relieve the problem.48

    Although some women are given the pill for irregular cycles, it does nothing to improve the underlying problem causing the irregularity. Often the irregularity returns when the pill is discontinued, sometimes more severely.

    Are there other side effects?

    Yes. Some side effects are minor while some may be more severe and call for discontinuing the drug.

    The following adverse effects have been experienced by women on the pill:

    Headaches, migraines, mental depression [even to the point of suicide and/or suicidal tendencies], a decrease or loss of sexual drive, abdominal cramps, bloating, weight gain or loss, and water retention; nausea and vomiting [in about 10% of users]; symptoms of PMS, vaginitis and vaginal infections, changes in vision [temporary or permanent blindness, and an intolerance to contact lenses]; gall bladder disease and either temporary or permanent infertility, when discontinuing the pill, in users with previous menstrual irregularities or who began the drug before full maturity. Several of the symptoms, such as migraine headaches, contraindicate the use of the pill because of life endangering complications.

    Consult the Physicians’ Desk Reference at your public library or consult your pharmacist for a more complete list of the pill’s harmful effects.

    Is the pill safer than pregnancy?

    No. The health risks of the pill outweigh by far the risks of pregnancy and childbirth to a woman’s health, and any claim to the contrary is based on erroneous comparisons between healthy women on the pill and women who do not receive normal care during pregnancy.

    A precondition for obtaining the pill is routine medical care and checkups. For example: if such a woman on the pill is diagnosed as precancerous, or if some other side effect is exhibited, she has the advantage of early detection. However, many pregnant women do not receive routine medical care. A clearer picture of the safety of the pill compared to the safety of pregnancy would be made if healthy women receiving routine medical care during pregnancy and delivery were compared with women receiving routine medical care while taking the pill.

    The mortality statistics of childbirth have continuously declined since the early part of this century, mostly due to better maternal healthcare. Most of the high risk pregnancies and deliveries occur to women who have not sought proper medical attention. This is most evident in the third world where adequate health care is sparse.

    Mortality statistics of pregnancy and delivery, usually called maternal mortality, include the mortality rates due to abortion. Abortion is clearly used as birth control, preventing the birth of the child; therefore it must be included with the mortality statistics of birth control methods. In one study, 25% to 50% of the reported maternal mortality was a result of deaths from abortion.

    Fifty percent of woman taking the pill discontinue it within the first year because of side effects, the development of benign breast disease, or some abnormality of the sexual organs. Studies of pill usage do not include these women, and the result is an unbalanced picture of only the healthiest of women who tolerate the pill. This is compared with the general population of women who are pregnant.

    The fact is that there are 13.8 million women in the U.S. and 60 million women worldwide who use the pill [conservative numbers]. And there are 7.9 pill-related deaths per 100,000 women ages 15-44.

    Therefore, one can calculate that there are over 1090 deaths each year in the U.S. alone simply due to the pill.

    But I’ve heard there are no side effects with the pill I use.


    All drugs, including all brands of the birth control pill, have potential side effects. There is no telling in advance how any particular woman will react to the pill, but there is a good chance of some type of reaction. It is possible that a woman will be unaware that there is any connection between the reaction and the pill especially if it takes years to manifest itself.

    Aren’t there any therapeutic benefits from the pill?

    The only indication, or use for the pill that is approved by the Food and Drug Administration is the prevention of pregnancy in women ... as a method of contraception. Some unapproved uses, considered experimental, include its use as a morning after pill [causing an early abortion], and for relief from the symptoms of mild endometriosis.

    I’m breastfeeding my baby; can I use the pill?

    No. Artificial hormones pass from breast milk to the baby; the pill also decreases both the quantity and protein content of the milk produced.

    What is my alternative to using the pill?


    Natural Family Planning is safe, healthy and effective and it’s also inexpensive. A woman observes and records changes in her basal body temperature, the normal flow of cervical mucus, and if she wishes, the physical changes in the cervix itself. She then cross-checks these signs of fertility to follow, day by day, the natural course of her fertility cycle. No drugs, no devices, no surgical procedures, no threat of death, no side effects, no chemical abortions!

    Does NFP really work?

    Yes. Married couples can achieve a 99% effectiveness if they learn the method, correctly interpret the fertility signs, and follow the rules. One positive side benefit for couples who are committed to making this method work is the potential for a healthier marriage — psychologically, physically and spiritually.

    How can I find out more about Natural Family Planning?

    I walked another three miles this evening with my cross training instructor after class. One thing I shared with him is that if a person is breathing, they have some issues to be dealt with, especially if they've never had any healing and deliverance. Earlier today I was asked to explain what the integrated approach to biblical healing and deliverance is.

    Let me see if I can explain it in simple terms. A lot of times, we deal with our symptoms and not the root of the issues on our lives. Most people's entire thinking process, including society, is geared toward symptoms.

    For example, if a person has a gall bladder problem, doctors take out the gall bladder. Well the root of most gall or kidney problems originate in the liver, but doctors don't address it in most cases. Now, I am not a physician and know that, so I know MDs know that. Or the better question is, why don't they go to the root of the issue?

    Now, allow me to shift to a common family dynamic. Many of us have one person, if not several people, in our families who are addicted to drugs. Normally, our family members’ make comments like, he/she ought to know better; I don't know why he/she won't fulfill his /her responsibilities.

    My dear, beloved people of God, those are all symptoms. I remain quiet when I hear comments like these because my interest is in only dealing with eradicating, putting an axe spiritually to the root of the issue. That way, the symptoms are forced to die.

    In simple terms, that's what integrated, biblical healing and deliverance looks like. We deal with the root(s) of an issue on all levels -- historically, cognitively, legally, emotionally and spiritually -- and it must die.

    I'll tell you this, this has changed my life. The Lord has allowed me some great opportunities in my life. But as the scriptures say clearly, only what we do for Christ will last.

    I've seen the Holy Spirit heal and deliver people before my eyes and He's used me as a tool. The school I was trained at was an international training center that specializes in the integrated approach to healing and deliverance. I wouldn't trade the experience for anything. The qualified teams in the Healing House Network have provided ministry to people, churches and businesses all over the world.

    You name a profession, and we've had someone come.
    You name a level of society, and they've come.
    You name a status level, and they've come.
    You name a denomination, and they've come.
    You name any problem or issue, and many have come.
    You name any case of hopelessness, and many have come.
    You name any stronghold or addiction that's gripped a person's life, and the people have come.
    You name a secret that people have lived with for decades, and those people have come.

    I will never look at any human being the same.

    Another beauty about the integrated approach to biblical healing and deliverance is that the green light comes on for people. Now what do I mean by that? You know how we all have wondered things about ourselves, our own families and about other people. You know that why, those searching questions that just never seem to get answered.

    In the ministry room, the Holy Spirit shows us and we show the person coming for ministry the strategy satan [really the demons dispatched and assigned to the person's life] has used to steal, kill and destroy them in their life. There's nothing like when we see that the green light comes on for a person.

    So, what does this mean? It means satan's strategy is exposed, and the freeing process begins. Now, how satan trips people up, many times for decades, is he [really the demonic assigned to the person's life] makes the person think: a) something is really wrong with me; or, b) I'm so ashamed I can't let anybody know; or, c) I have to keep this hidden; or d) I'm the only one, I am flawed in this area.

    They are all lies, my dear beloved people of God.
    And you know who the father of lies is, yes satan.
    I tell you, I tell people satan seriously has a low intelligence quota.
    It's sad and even simple, but it's true.

    Remember I started this blog off by sharing I walked another three miles with my cross training instructor after class. Well, he asked the ultimate question. "So yall just do the inner healing stuff right?" I looked at him out of the corner of my right eye as sweat is drenching down my face and already-soaked t-shirt, and I answered, we do "healing."

    Let's think about it people. What did Jesus do the majority of the time here on earth, heal. Does the Bible not clearly say that we, His dearly beloved, will do even greater things than Him. So yes, absolutely, we've seen the Holy Spirit heal people of many physical issues/illnesses/pains when they came for integrated, biblical healing and deliverance ministry. You can imagine the look my instructor gave me. His eyes said it all as he towered above me in height.

    Now, my two degrees are in business and my career has been spent in the business arena both nationally and internationally. The Holy Spirit simply amazes me every week. Do you know these same revelatory biblical principles that integrated healing and deliverance teams apply to people are also applied to businesses?

    It’s very simple and makes sense. Businesses are made up of people, right. People bring there personal, life issues to work and companies have to deal with them. They prohibit productivity. How do they affect work?

    Well, we know about employee theft, we know about office affairs, we know about manipulation, we know about lying, we know about greed, we know about injustice, we know about sexism, we know about racism, we know about the glass ceiling, we know about substance abuse, we know about overweight people, we know about employees who just aren’t motivated, we know about people going through divorces at work, we know about unethical people, we know about favoritism, we all know about the inevitable bosom buddy called stress.

    Well, Beloved reader, every single thing listed above, plus many other things I didn’t name all have spiritual roots. It will not take long to show this to you. So, can you connect the dots to see how having a person or people within companies go through healing and deliverance can significantly impact the workplace. And this is not a temporary fix either.

    We have case studies [we call them testimonies in the body of Christ] of believers who have applied this to their businesses and companies, and the Holy Spirit has turned departments, business units and companies around. I’m not pulling your leg here.

    As in the business world, these same biblical principles are applied to help businesses and organizations Transform Their Business.
