Here, natural means according to God's design. Natural Health Matters is all about maximizing your health potential by aligning your life more fully with God's design for spirit, mind, and body.
Good health is more than merely the absence of disease. Health in body is supported with health in spirit, and mind, and is achieved through good nutrition, movement and sleep.
Health in spirit is found by pursuing love... love for God, love for others, and love for ourselves.
Health in mind is found by adopting a winning mindset, identifying and correcting limiting beliefs, and practicing emotional intelligence.
When we're experiencing health in all 3 areas of the human condition, we're in better positions to live the abundant life (John 10:10).
