Firstly I would like to inform everyone that NCDs such as heart disease, cancers, hypertension, mental illness and diabetes are exactly what they are, Non Communicable Disease, meaning that these are not disease contracted like a “virus”, but that it is brought on by the individual.

Therefore, because it is as simple as that, then, of course, every one of these diseases can be corrected almost immediately, by the very individual who is affected.

I believe that finding and addressing the root causes of each disease, as it relates to each individual will also greatly assist in reducing, and bringing an end to this rapid increase in ill health and fundamental aspect of the national fight against this problem.

Very importantly, since this is a nation that believes in God, then it is a must, that God be involved, in this matter. God cannot be left out. Therefore, it is good to understand, that this is where I begin with my take on this health crisis concern. The answers are in GOD.

Secondly and most importantly, it is a fact that we are ALL created by GOD. He created every Human being on this earth. Each of us is made up of three, Spirit, Soul and Body. 1st Thessalonians 5; 23, clearly states that we are a Spirit, we live in a Body and we have a Soul. The Soul is also made up of three, your Free Will, your Mind, and your Emotions. In 1st Corinthians 15: 44, we see that we have a natural body and a spiritual body. I believe that every human being is well aware that the Spiritual Body, does not die. A body without a spirit is dead. Upon death, the natural body is buried, while the spirit and the soul (spiritual body) depart, back to the Maker.

Having said this, I would like to say that diet and eating habits are not the only causes of illness, since they only affect the natural body, while external factors, such as dysfunctional homes, marital problems, financial strife, abuse, pride, unemployment, worry, bondages and strongholds of all kinds, and many others, affect the Soul and Spirit, these external factors have nothing to do with the food that we eat. More than ninety (90%) percent of the people who are ill are suffering on the inside, in their Soul and Spirit, which of course transfers to the natural body. Therefore, the reasons why these diseases are called, Non-Communicable Diseases.

The WORD of GOD in both Deuteronomy. 8:3 and Matthew. 4:4, clearly states that “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every WORD that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Clearly, what does God’s WORD say to us?  That even if one eats a well balanced, nutritious meal each and every day, he/she shall never be one (100 %) hundred percent healthy. Why? Because Man does not LIVE by the bread we eat only. This means that since we are made up of three, Spirit, Soul and Body, we eat the bread for the body, but we need to also feed the Spirit and the Soul to become 100% whole.

How do we feed the Soul and the Spirit? Same as we feed with the food – our mouth. With the WORD that proceedeth out of HIS MOUTH. What is the WORD that comes out of His Mouth.? THE BIBLE.

So let me ask the question. How many persons own a BIBLE? And how many persons feed their Spirit and Soul each and every day? The answer to this question could be found in the number of persons affected in the Spirit, Soul and Body.



Every person who is suffering from a Non-Communicable Disease can be healed almost immediately, once their spirit and soul receive the understanding of the emotions they are going through. Primarily they simply need to understand that it all begins in the mind, their thoughts, and what is happening in their lives at the present moment. Our thoughts transfer a lot of energy; therefore we must begin by “renewing the minds.” Romans 12:2 “And be not conformed to this world; but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what which is good and acceptable and perfect WILL of God.  Many persons are hurting inwardly, and it is this “negative/wrong thinking or sad thoughts” that cause the body to secrete toxins which contribute to and manifests in various forms of illnesses, including physical pain. The reverse, meaning good health, is very true for those who are thinking happy and positive thoughts.

Proverbs 17:22 states that “ A merry heart doeth good like a medicine, but a broken spirit drieth the bones. As you are thinking, so you are generating energy. Proverbs 23:7 states that as a man thinketh in his heart so is he”.

In the meantime, all those affected by Non-Communicable Disease, should read Proverbs 4:20 – 22. Our Heavenly Father calls each and every one of us, His son/daughter and asked us to incline our ears to His WORDS, for they are LIFE unto those who find them and HEALTH to all their flesh. Therefore, simply repeating these scriptures on a daily basis will certainly bring wellness to anyone.

God’s WORD in Proverbs 4:23, states “ Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life”, and Proverbs 18:14, “The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear?

I would also like to say that the views expressed in this article are not mine, but the Lord’s. If anyone is ill and would like to get healed, then do what our Heavenly Father says in His WORD. It costs nothing. I have seen many healed, once they understood that it is what is going on in their life, which is causing them to be ill and not the food that they are eating. Those persons were healed almost immediately
