{Family Herbalist} my wellness philosophy revisited

I created my first wellness philosophy almost a year ago to the day. And now that I have spent a year in this healthier direction and have formally begun my Family Herbalist class, I have a chance to re-read and review what I had formulated a year ago.

Below you can find my updated version for project one, end of unit one:
A philosophy for wellness, for myself and for my family, primarily involves the Word of God. Using the entire bible to learn and grow towards better, biblical health. We believe that our Creator has given us words to live by, that help us to have a better understanding of things such as sustainable agriculture and natural medicine.

I also believe that with the practical application of biblical health laws, we were given ways to combat many microbial concerns that may lead to sickness. Such as the principle to wash ones self after an unclean act, thus giving some solid support for the germ theory in regards to the passing on of illness via the physical exchange of pathogens.
The terrain theory is also effected by biblical law, because when we eat those things that are not considered clean food items, we effect our terrains in a negative manner. This can also apply to the ingestion of genetically modified organisms, which taken literally, should not be considered as good food choices for us and once again we are finding that the Scriptures validate our science.
As a family, we also believe it is important to carefully consider the negative effects of various emotions and the role they have on our health. Issues such as anger, fear and bitterness, have been known to physically manifest themselves as an illness within our bodies. Again, our Creator addresses this concern in His Word and we see that He has not left us without knowledge.
But I also think it is important to mention that while I believe we need to be responsible, and accountable for our health as much as possible. We must not forget that the fall of man has truly effected our wellness, for by this sin and death enter the world.

I think it's pretty much the same point, just a little more concise. Anyway ~ I am very thankful to have the opportunity to take this course and my hope is to make the most of it for my family's sake.
~ Blessings!
