12 Healing Foods from the Bible

  • Raw Honey  
  • Olives & Olive Oil
  • Pomegranate
  • Fermented Grapes
  • Flaxseed
  • Sprouted Grain Bread
  • Raw Milk
  • Lamb
  • Bitter Herbs
  • Vegetables
  • Lentils
  • Millet
  1.  Raw HoneyHave you found honey? Eat only what you need that you not have it in excess and vomit it. (Proverbs 25:16)

It’s no wonder raw honey is referred to as “liquid gold.” The medicinal applications of the skin and internal body seem limitless. First of all, raw honey is loaded with key vitamins (B1 – B6 and C) and it contains several minerals (calcium, magnesium, manganese, potassium, and zinc).

In addition to being a fantastic replacement to energy drinks for athletes and people needing a little boost, raw honey also contains a full spectrum of antioxidants and supports the growth of probiotics in gastrointestinal tract including (Bifidobacteria). Yay!

Another fascinating quality of honey is its ability to help prevent seasonal allergies. However, be sure to purchase the local variety as it will contain indigenous pollen species, unlike generic store bought brands.

Who would have thought that you could get nutritional advice in the Bible, huh? At the end of the day, if it were good enough for people back then to eat, it’s probably good for us today.

  1. Olives and Olive OilThen it shall come about when the Lord your God brings you into the land which He swore to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to give you, great and splendid cities which you did not build, and houses full of all good things which you did not fill, and hewn cisterns which you did not dig, vineyards and olive trees which you did not plant, and you eat and are satisfied. (Deuteronomy 6:10-11)

The Jews were the elite olive merchants of their day. During antiquity, this precious commodity was used for its healing capabilities, for cooking, to light lamps, for soaps, for cosmetics and even for currency. Olive oil was considered so sacred to ancient culture that it was even used to anoint kings and priests. Hence, the Hebrew for Messiah, Moshiach, meaning “anointed one!”

Research has been conducted that proves regular consumption of olives and olive oil contributes to heart, brain skin and joint health. They have even been linked to cancer and diabetes prevention. Needless to say, this sacred foodstuff has lived up to its ancient reputation!

  1. PomegranateFor the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, flowing forth in valleys and hills; a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey. (Deuteronomy 8:7-8)

Tasty, messy and just recently gaining ground in the American market these past few years, several research studies have shown that pomegranates contain strong anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-obesity and anti-tumor properties.

According to researchers, “Many beneficial effects are related to the presence of ellagic acid, flavonoids, anthocyanins, and flavones, which seem to be its most therapeutically beneficial components.” Subsequently, pomegranates are being considered valid treatment options for chronic diseases such as cancer, insulin resistance, intestinal inflammation, and obesity.

  1. Fermented GrapesMay he kiss me with the kisses of his mouth! For your love is better than wine. (Song of Solomon 1:2)

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has touted for years that regularly drinking a 4-oz glass of red wine will lower your risk of developing heart disease. Nonetheless, because of the inherent dangers of consuming too much alcohol, the Mayo Clinic cautions drinking much more than this amount.

When grape juice is fermented, the natural antioxidant and flavonoid properties are exemplified through a substance called resveratrol. Consequently, researchers have focused much of their attention on evaluating the health benefits of resveratrol in recent years, which has been linked to chronic disease reversal including diabetes and obesity.

  1. FlaxAn excellent wife, who can find?

For her worth is far above jewels… She looks for wool and flax

And works with her hands in delight. (Proverbs 31:10,13)

One of the most important plant fibers in the Bible, flax has been used to make linen for as long as recorded history. Although it has been widely replaced by cotton in recent years, flax remains one of the most important fiber plants in the world.

Having a rich history of medicinal use dating back to Babylon in 3000 BC, flaxseed has been wholeheartedly embraced by natural health and medical circles alike because it provides a natural, vegan source of Omega-3 essential fatty acid, lignans, and fiber. Subsequently, flax can help fight cancer, diabetes and heart disease

  1. Sprouted Grain BreadTake wheat and barley, beans and lentils, millet and spelt; put them in a storage jar and use them to make bread for yourself. (Ezekiel 4:9).

In the Book of Ezekiel, God gave the prophet Ezekiel a recipe for what has proven to be the perfect bread as science has recently shown us that it creates the “complete protein,” one that contains all essential amino acids. The main reason that Ezekiel bread is healthier than other bread is that the grains and legumes are soaked and sprouted which makes them easier to digest.

Harvesting “sprouted grains” happens right after the seed has started to sprout, but before it has developed into a full-grown plant. During this critical growth state, the young shoot digests a portion of the starch to fuel its growth. Subsequently, because the grain’s starch has been utilized, the level of vital nutrients including proteins, vitamins, and minerals enhanced. Additionally, research studies have suggested that iron and zinc actually become more “bioavailable,” (i.e. more easily absorbed) after sprouting.

  1. Raw MilkThe lambs will be for your clothing and the goats will bring the price of a field. There will be goats’ milk enough for your food,for the food of your household, and sustenance for your maidens.  (Proverbs 27:26-27)

Raw milk is filled with the vitamins and minerals that contribute to a healthy dental fluid flow and help maintain strong teeth. Loaded with calcium, vitamin K2, magnesium, phosphorus, and fat-soluble vitamins researchers have carried out a comparative study on the properties of cows’ milk compared to those of goats’ milk and have discovered that goat’s milk may be even more beneficial.

Unlike cows’ milk, scientists from the University of Granada has revealed that data concerning goats’ milk suggests that it could prevent diseases such as anemia and bone demineralization. Additionally, goats’ milk has properties that help with the digestive and metabolic utilization of minerals such as iron, calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium.

  1. Lamb Now you shall eat it [the unblemished lamb] in this manner: with your loins girded, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and you shall eat it in haste—it is the Lord’s Passover. (Exodus 12:11)

Due to the significance of the Passover Lamb and equating that role to Christ, lambs are the most revered animal in history, and the most honored food in the Bible. Lamb is the meat of young sheep that are generally one year old or younger. Due to slaughtering the animal at such a young age, the marbled fat content is considerably lower than older varieties of meat, which contributes to heart health and helps prevent again obesity. Rich in protein, vitamin B12, and minerals it is arguably the healthiest red meat on the planet.

On a side note, make sure to purchase local, organic, grass-fed varieties when possible. Grain-fed animals are loaded with genetically modified corn feed, countless additives and are simply not worth the risk.

  1. Bitter Herbs (coriander and parsley)They shall eat the flesh that same night, roasted with fire, and they shall eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. (Exodus 12:8)

Scholars are not in complete agreement which plants the authors of Bible were referring to when writing about “bitter herbs,” but coriander and parsley generally make the list.

Coriander is the seed of the powerful antioxidant and natural cleansing agent cilantro. Europeans refer to it as the “anti-diabetic” because of its uncanny ability to regulate blood sugar, and it has been known for being an effective anti-inflammatory.

Also used for chronic disease reversal, parsley has been shown to normalize blood pressure, help prevent cancer and offer joint pain relief due to its anti-inflammatory properties. It is a rich source of several crucial vitamins including Vitamin A, B12, C, and K.

  1. VegetablesPlease test your servants for ten days, and let us be given some vegetables to eat and water to drink. (Daniel 1:12)

Daniel and his friends decided to live on a vegetarian diet. When it was time for them to be presented to the king, Nebuchadnezzar and all of the leaders were astounded to see that the 4 young Jewish friends were fitter and looked better than the other young men who ate the Babylonian fare that included meat. Often referred to as the Daniel “diet,” history and biblical text actually support that Daniel continued his vegetarian lifestyle throughout his entire life.

Of all the food groups, vegetables are arguably the most nutrient-dense and safest to eat. There’s relatively no risk in consuming too many of them.

Vegetables are so effective at healing that, according to the National Cancer Institute, cruciferous veggies (broccoli, cabbage, collards, kale, radish etc.) can help prevent cancer because they are rich in glucosinolates – a large group of sulfur-containing glucosides. Known to break down during chewing and digestion, these powerhouse chemicals can slow down and even reverse cancer cells growth. Additionally, it has also been reported that glucosinolates can treat the following health concerns:

  • Inflammation
  • Bacterial and viral infections
  • Carcinogenic toxicity
  • Tumor angiogenesis (blood vessel formation)
  • Tumor metastasis (tumor migration)

11. Lentils

Lentils are rife with nutrients, including a range of B-vitamins, fiber, copper, zinc, potassium, protein and phosphorus. They also contain a hefty concentration of molybdenum, a lesser-known nutrient required for the optimal function of a number of enzymes in the body. These enzymes are instrumental in the health of many of the body’s systems. Molybdenum is also linked to providing antioxidant support, which is important for combating free radicals and inflammation.

Due to their high fiber content, lentils are a great meal choice for both improving digestion and protecting your cardiovascular health. Eating lentils can also provide a healthy source of energy and stabilize blood sugar. Try a lentil stew with curry spices next time you’re in the mood for a hearty, flavorful dinner.

  1. Millet

Millet is an ancient grain that has been around since the times of prehistory, so it’s no surprise that people were enjoying it in biblical times. It is naturally gluten-free, so it’s a great choice for individuals who are sensitive to gluten, or who just want to add a new, nutritious, whole grain to their meals. Millet contains an abundance of minerals, including copper, phosphorus, magnesium, and manganese, along with heart-healthy plant lignans.

The magnesium content of this ancient grain has been linked to a number of health boons, including reducing the risk of cardiac incidents, lowering blood pressure and reducing the frequency of migraines. Eating millet may also protect against certain cancers, and lower risk of gallstones and type 2 diabetes. Try it instead of rice for your next stew or stir-fry.

Bible Verses for Health and Healing

I have laid out Bible verses for you to meditate on for the emotions/thoughts and actions that relate to your health, well-being and weight-loss.

  • Worry
  • Fear
  • Mindset
  • Un-forgiveness
  • Food
  • Weight loss/Physical Activity
  • Caring for your Body
  • Beauty
  • Power
  • Self-Control/Discipline • Mindset
  • Health/Healing
  • Planning

WORRY

When we worry we are trying to control a situation that we have no control over. This can wreak havoc on your body and your mind causing stomach issues and other health-related problems. Instead, begin to meditate on God’s word to bring you through it.

Matthew 6:25-34

[ Do Not Worry ] “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink;
or about your body, what you will wear.
Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns,
and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.
Are you not much more valuable than they?
Can anyone of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? …

FEAR

Fear is much like worry, it cripples us. But fear and worry all related to our thoughts and we have control over our thoughts. We must pay attention to what we thinking about in order to change those thoughts from fear to love. Fear can keep you from accomplishing your goals!

1 John 4:18

“There is no fear in love.
But perfect love drives out fear because fear has to do with punishment.
The one who fears is not made perfect in love.”

MINDSET

Mindset is at the root of our life – our thoughts become actions and our actions become habits and our habits become lifestyle. Your mindset is important because it becomes your lifestyle. How positive are your mind and thoughts? What do you think about? Are you aware of your thoughts?

Romans 12:2

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is –
his good, pleasing and perfect will.

 

Philippians 4:8

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right,
whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is noble –
if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things.

1 Peter 5:6-8 (NIV)

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.
 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around
like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

UN-FORGIVENESS

Unforgiveness in our lives can lead to destruction and hold you captive. What I mean is, Unforgiveness hurts you, not the person you won’t forgive. When we harbor the sin of unforgiveness it physically hurts our body. We are commanded to forgive 70 times 7, which means infinity.

Matthew 6:14-15 ESV

For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you,
but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Ephesians 4:26-27 ESV

Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger,
and give no opportunity to the devil.

FOOD (FEAST)

Christ said that, by believing in Him, we would never again hunger or thirst. Perhaps, He was speaking of the aching need we all feel to be filled up. The hole in us that hungers for something more. Jesus offers that sustenance to all who come to Him starving for a Savior. He feeds us and sustains us, and sets us a place for us at the table. And as long as we sit there beside Him, Jesus will make sure we always stay full.

1 Corinthians 11:25-26

In the same way, He took the cup also after supper, saying,
“This cup is the new covenant in My blood;
do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”
For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.

Genesis 1:29

“Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth
and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.”

John 6:35

Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life.
Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.”

1 Corinthians 10:31

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

Matthew 6:25

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink;
or about your body, what you will wear.
Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?

1 Corinthians 8:8

But food does not bring us near to God; we are no worse if we do not eat, and no better if we do.

WEIGHT-LOSS / PHYSICAL ACTIVITY / EXERCISE

Weight-Loss Bible Wisdom

Typically, when we start a new eating program we are gung-ho. We’ve chosen a program, we’ve read up on it – a little, or a lot, depending on your personality. We are ready!

Mid-way through that new food program, we can become a bit discouraged, our cravings start to kick- up, some negative thoughts can start to creep in and we can start to tell ourselves that we are too tired to prepare a healthy meal.

Then, once we start to see results, whether it be weight loss shown on the scale, clothing fitting loser, the tape measure showing inches lost, or a decrease in body fat, is when we get revved up again.

even as your soul is getting along well.

BEAUTY

Along with caring for our bodies we typically desire beauty. As a women we want to be beautiful. As a man, they desire beauty. We are ALL beautiful and created in God’s image.

Song of Solomon 4:7

You are altogether beautiful, my darling; there is no flaw in you.

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
Be alert and of sober mind.
Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

HEALTH & HEALING

I have to agree with Dr. Z who says “Reckless behavior, misuse of medicines and deliberate poor food choices (i.e. all “sins”) can and oftentimes damages our bodies and will make us more susceptible to get sick.” Along our healing journey, we are all confronted by the same fork in the road and, we all have a choice.

No amount of prayer, no amount of meditation, and no amount of counseling can turn things around until we are willing to change. We need to first stop doing the things that are causing the damage in the first place, which then gives our bodies an opportunity to heal. At the same time, we need to learn how to take care of ourselves and regain control of our health.

Jeremiah 33:6

Nevertheless, I will bring health and healing to it; I will heal my people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security.

Final Challenge

As I read the Bible, I am often filled with a peace and sense of reassurance that allows me to open my eyes and see how the timeless principles within its pages ring true in my life.

Along our healing journey, we are all confronted by the same fork in the road and, we all have a choice.

  • Have you made a decision to regaining control of your health in a way that honors your body as the temple that it truly is?
  • Have you determined to feed your temple nutritious foods and avoid toxins that cause disease?
  • Have you committed to stop running to the pharmacy for every little thing and using the healing power of foods and natural therapies?

Like me, you have a choice which path you want to follow. And, now that you have learned what the Bible says about health, I trust that you will walk with me on the path toward a FEAST filled life!
