In this interview with Edna Lawrence, she answers questions about her book My Journey to Vibrant Health…and how you can get there, too, and health.
Why did you write this book?
I was inspired to write this book because of a heartfelt desire to teach others how to avoid the disease-care maze by educating and empowering them with the knowledge, wisdom, skills, and confidence to take ownership of their health and ultimately improve the quality of their life. My objective is to prevent others from committing what is referred to as ‘slow suicide.’
What’s the most important lesson or message readers will get from reading this book?
The message is one of encouragement: If I can regain my health after years of suffering and taking prescription drugs, you can too. No matter how long you’ve been sick and taking medication, your body can and will balance and heal itself as you incorporate the R.E.B.A. Principles in your daily life – provided your cells have not been destroyed to the point of no return.
What are two of the many misconceptions people have about health?
The first misconception: Most Americans, and I was one of them, believe that doctors, drugs, surgery, dialysis, chemotherapy, radiation, etc. can heal their illnesses. Not true. In addition to doing more harm than good to the body, these protocols fail to address the underlying causes of any given disease. Understand that nothing or no one can heal your body but your activated and nurtured divine healing power within!
The second misconception: We ‘catch’ viruses, colds, the flu, or other diseases. That is false. Disease can only manifest and survive in a malnourished, toxic, unhealthy body that has a weak immune system. When your internal environment, which determines your overall health, becomes polluted with toxins and metabolic waste, you will eventually develop symptoms of disease. Your internal environment is affected by everything you eat, drink, put on your skin, allow in your mind, the air you breathe, and whether you exercise and get adequate rest and sleep.
Why are more and more people seeking and using natural health alternatives?
Fortunately, people are more aware of the problems associated with prescription drugs and the risks involved in undergoing surgery. Thus, an increasing number of Americans are actively seeking alternative solutions over modern medicine for two simple reasons: they are safe and they work.
In particular, as the 78 million baby boomers become more health-conscious, they are waking-up and saying, ‘Enough is enough’. Thus, they are seeking cost effective, compassionate, less invasive treatment options to improve their health because they want to look and feel young, vibrant, and healthy well into old age. And they want to live a long, active, drug-free life for many years to come.
The bottom line is, for many people, this shift toward alternative health solutions is a matter of personal survival because they have experienced health problems themselves, and/or witnessed the pain and suffering experienced by their friends and loved ones—and they are fed-up.
What are the R.E.B.A. Principles?
The R.E.B.A. Principles is a proven, holistic, straightforward system that provides a logical, economical and natural roadmap that leads inevitably to a long, healthy life. And when these principles are implemented in your daily life, you will experience first-hand what the body needs to protect, regulate, balance, and heal itself, providing for a longer, healthier, and more vibrant, drug-free life.
The acronym R.E.B.A. means:
- Re-adjust your mindset
- Elevate the quality and quantity of your dietary, nutritional, and liquid intake, and activate the divine healing power within
- Build and purify your body’s internal environment
- Accelerate your body’s ability to self-heal
What are some of the health benefits gained when the R.E.B.A. Principles are implemented?
- Improve and maintain remarkable health and vitality, naturally
- End addiction to prescription and over-the-counter drugs
- Eliminate nutrient-deficient foods and uncontrollable cravings
- Boost energy so you can keep up with your active children or grandchildren, without health restrictions
- Lose weight, safely, naturally, and permanently, without pills or surgery
- Achieve greater focus, clarity, and peace of mind
