The speaker for this CNHP seminar was Philip Fritchey. He came across as a mix between a loving and patient father and a southern preacher. There are some 85+ people in my classes this week…so a wide range of folks from all over the country…and some a little more charismatic than others! :) Throughout the day you heard several saying ‘yes’ and ‘amen’! It was refreshing to hear his style of presentation with the personal stories and awesome to hear him give all the glory to God!
He said he offers himself to God’s service every morning and just asks, “what do you have for me today Lord?”
How great is that? I wish I could be his client! Noone on this earth has all the answers. And as much as I learn…the more I realize how much I don’t know. But if I’m offering myself to God’s service…then it’s up to Him and not me! I just need to be willing and available….seems much more doable than trying to be the expert! Amen?!
Body systems is a seminar on all the systems in the body: digestive, nervous, circulatory, glandular, urinary, respiratory and structural system. It sounds like a basic A&P class at first glance….but it was so much more. He is a Master Herbalist and so it was wonderful to get so many great recommendations of herbs to support each body system. Plants were given to us for our good and were the first gift God gave Adam and Eve.
Genesis 1:29 “And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.”
Here’s a few other things that I noted:
The body was designed by our Creator to be well. So why isn’t it? It’s not well if it doesn’t have the resources it needs or there are things in the way. And we need to look at the whole body. We didn’t get sick in parts, it is a whole body problem. If we treat a symptom, even with a natural supplement, we are just applying a bandaid.
“All death begins in the colon.” ~ Bernard Jensen
Fritchey also drove home the fact that we have to deal with digestion to see health and healing.
I liked his core nutrition that he uses with all his clients. First make sure you are eating a diet of whole living foods, dark leafy greans, whole grains, seeds and nuts. Second, poop often. (yes, his words) Third, improve your water intake. Then he has five core supplements: a good broad spectrum multi-vitamin/mineral; extra macro minerals; extra antioxidants; broad spectrum enzymes with every meal; and essential fatty acids. Doing these basic things will help the body help itself.
And finally we all have to accept the responsibility of our choices. God’s called me to share my knowledge, but it’s between you and God what you do with that….He’s just asked me to share….I’m doing my part….do yours!
