However, adults and children alike continue to suffer with the symptoms of these diseases. Their lives are compromised and they become incapacitated. Consequently they are unable to completely follow the plan of God for their lives.
But God has provided the very foods that will sustain and heal our bodies. There are many delicious foods that we can eat that will support our health so let’s be sure to…
