Fasting teaches us to build health through Biblical principles by following Godly wisdom in our eating habits and allows us to gain control of our appetite. God formed every part of our body and He want us to honor Him by taking care of them. He loves our physical body; they are priceless to Him and He calls them His temple. Caring for the Holy Spirit's temple requires wisdom, and balance, and only God can help us gain both. To hear the voice of the Holy Spirit, our mind must be attentive and clear not bogged down by unhealthy food. As we learn to appreciate our body as the temple of the Holy Spirit we will change our thought pattern and create a healthy balance with food. If you are ready for a breakthrough in your dieting struggle, Fasting a Spiritual Discipline with Physical Benefits, provides a foundation to help you develop a life-changing commitment. God created food to give us energy, to heal our bodies, and for us to enjoy. Food was never meant to control us. When we shift our attention from losing weight to improving health by eating properly and cleansing the Holy Spirit's Temple, our body will begin to reach the weight that is best for us. Many of people decided to diet, but only a few resolve to fast.
While the Obama administration's Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) has expanded health care coverage for millions of Americans, it has fallen short in offering universal health care to all. In Health Care as a Right of Citizenship, Gunnar Almgren argues that the ACA's primary significance is not in its expansion of health care entitlements but in its affirming by an act of Congress the idea that comprehensive health care must be available to all as a right of citizenship. The mainstream American public now views access to affordable health care to all citizens as a crucial function of just and effective governance-and any proposed alternative to the ACA must be reconciled with that expectation. This ambitious book examines how the American health care system must be further reformed to bring it closer in line with the ideals of a modern democracy, as well as how the ACA may change in the coming years. It suggests the next, natural step in the realization of health and well being as a fundamental human right. Based on a close analysis of the writings of sociologist TH Marshall and philosopher John Rawls, this book examines the theoretical foundations for health care as a social right of citizenship. Almgren then translates these theoretical principles into core health care policy aims. Throughout, he argues that the ACA is but an evolutionary step toward a more radical and fundamental health care reform. Almgren suggests how such a restructured health care system might operate, with specific proposals for its financing and delivery systems. He also explores the special issues and considerations that all nations must grapple with as they seek to provide a sustainable social right to health care. Health Care as a Right of Citizenship will stimulate and challenge readers who take an interest in America's health care policy, particularly those who wish for a health care system that is both financially sustainable and capable of making healthcare accessible, adequate, and affordable to all Americans, irrespective of their societal position and individual health needs.
