P.S re. probiotics: I have used probiotics on a daily basis for many years—and gave liquid probiotics to our children when they were small. Though sour in taste, the strawberry-flavored variety always went down without struggle or complaint on the part of the child.
Regarding the related issue of eating a high-alkaline diet, Dr. Susan Brown of the Center for Better Bones has much to say on that subject. Here are some thoughts from her article entitled Alkaline for Life®—The importance of pH balance in healthy bones.
“Our enzymatic, immunologic, and repair mechanisms all function their best in an alkaline environment. Despite this, our biochemical functioning, the metabolism of food, and many other fundamental life processes, all produce a great deal of acid. …To regain the alkaline state necessary for our health and survival, metabolic acids from all sources must be buffered or neutralized.” Read the entire (short) article and learn more about pH balance at http://www.betterbones.com/alkalinebalance/default.aspx.
As we celebrate Passion Week, remember that ultimate balance comes from the Savior who designed and created us then died for us. Whether our lives are out of kilter physically, spiritually, mentally or emotionally (or all of the above!), he will help and heal.
Yet it was our weaknesses he carried; it was our sorrows that weighed him down. And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God for his own sins! But he was wounded and crushed for our sins. He was beaten that we might have peace. He was whipped, and we were healed! Isaiah 53:4-5(NLT)
Churches around the world proclaimed it yesterday, and I proclaim it again today—Hosanna in the highest! Becky
