Our feelings can lead to a lot of bad things in our physical body as well, when they control us. The fact that we are not willing to forgive, for example, will cause you to feel anger, resentment, frustration and even depression. And when you have these emotions, they can lead to diseases in your body, like high blood pressure, autoimmune diseases (like allergies) and even cancer.Emotions have a lot to do with our health. Our negative emotions, which often come from fear, may release chemicals that make us depressed, and when we have a chemical imbalance in our body, it can make your immune system weak. Ask a doctor if not a prolonged fear and depression can have an impact on your immune system.
Today I will also share the first part of my testimony

God gave you emotions. Part 10 (1)

The Bible has actually known about this for thousand years already.
See these scriptures from Proverbs.
Prov. 17:22: (KJV) “A merry heart does good like a medicine, but a broken spirit dries the bones.”
I cannot explain this as a doctor, but the immune system is made in our bones. The red blood cells are made inside the bone calcification, and they are an important part of our immune system.
Prov. 14:30: (AMP) “A calm and undisturbed mind and heart are the life and health of the body, but envy, jealousy, and wrath are like rottenness of the bones.
” Envy, jealousy, anger and negative emotions such as un-forgiveness will move you away from God’s will when it comes to your health and psyche, they will, among other things, do something with your immune system so that you will be sick.
Prov. 18:14: (AMP) “The strong spirit of a man sustains him in bodily pain or trouble, but a weak and broken spirit who can raise up or bear?”
Prov. 15:30: (AMP) “The light in the eyes [of him whose heart is joyful] rejoices the hearts of others, and good news nourishes the bones”.
Here it says that joy and good news will nourish the bones, and a calm and undisturbed mind and heart are the life and health of the body in other words: When you have joy and peace they will make your immune system strong.
My road to healing
I want to give you a testimony from my own life when it comes to health. For God has helped me to be free and healed from a very difficult food allergy:
In the summer of 2000, I started to get sick. I sometimes had some asthma-like symptoms, plus some stomach pain, irritable bowel syndrome, and often a lot of headaches, concentration difficulties, etc.
I went to the doctor, and he gave me some asthma medicine, but I only got worse. Then they discovered that I had fungus in my throat, and was given fungus medicine for it. But after the fungus was cured, I was still not better, but after a while it became only worse again.
I was sent to many different doctors and they gave me many different medications, but everything II tried made me worse. I was ultimately very depressed and fearsome, for in spite of many attempts, the doctors could not find what was wrong with me. In the end the doctors did not really believe me when I said I was sick, but I was really sick.
After about six months I came across someone who had had a similar sickness, and they said that it was perhaps something called Candida-allergy, a type of yeast infections. And this Candida made me have a lot of food allergies. When I came back to Norway, I went to an alternative clinic in Oslo, who said they could help me to be well. I went to many expensive appointments, and was put on a two-month strict diet where I should not eat, among other things: sugar, flour, yeast, mushrooms, bread, dairy products, some fruit etc. And I had to take some alternative medicines. I did this for over three months, but was not better.
After six months I came across an article on the Internet about amalgam fillings, and they said that the mercury in the fillings might leek and that could cause more-Candida allergy. I had quite a few amalgam fillings, so I thought that this must be the problem.
The alternative clinic did not believe so much in it, so I found a new alternative doctor who did. And I started on a painful and expensive process to remove all the amalgam in my teeth. It took over a year and cost me around 20-30 000 kroner (3-5 000 USD). Because nothing really got any better I was often depressed and frustrated.
When I was finished with this, I had to go through some expensive cures that would purify my body of mercury and other things. And after that I started again on a two-month strict diet and cure to be well.
But after three months I was still as bad as before. I began to eat less and less variety of food, and I reacted allergic to more and more. I began to be quite frustrated, and when I came to the alternative doctor, he could not give me any answer on why I was worse. But he said he had received a new alternative medicine that had helped others with my disease.
I tried this medicine, but after two days I was so bad that I had to stop. I got a very big breathing problem, plus headache, dizziness, etc.
The worst was that I had problems to breathe in (which is the opposite of asthma). As the days passed and I was not better, I started to panic. I called the doctor, but he could not help me, and he did not know what to do. I could not go to a regular doctor, for they had also given up on me, and their medicine did not help me either.
Then I came across another alternative doctor, who was even more alternative than the previous one. His office was clearly decorated with Eastern religion and philosophy. But I was so desperate that I tried anything to get healed. He had, for sure, some new cures for me, and I had a faint hope again.
They helped a bit at first, but then it was worse again, and after a few months and several hundred dollars later, this doctor shakes his head, and did not know what he should do with me either.
Now I was really depressed and fearsome, all I had tried with doctors were unsuccessful. I felt that my faith in God had been weakened too, for where was He in all this? I had called out to Him in my frustration, but it felt like he had not heard me.
There were also some who said to me that perhaps God would like me be to be sick, for maybe he had a hidden meaning by it. This helped absolutely not, and this did not make me to seek God more, or feel better. But I did not give up on God, and deep in my heart I knew that God was good and that he had not left me.
For the most, I was only awake in bed, and to stand up and walk made, it difficult for me to breathe. Nights were often the worst; I could wake up in the middle of the night because I couldn’t breathe, and I gasp for breath. Sometimes I was in half sleep, and I felt I could not breathe properly, but I couldn’t managed to turn around and wake up properly either.
This was really a nightmare. Many times I just wanted to stop breathing and go to heaven. I came across some Christian books on healing and began to read some of them, and they helped me a bit and I got some new hope. I tried to get to several healing meetings. It was mostly a hassle to get there, and it was very disappointing each time, for I felt that nothing had happened.
I knew God had called me to Thailand, so I thought: Maybe God will check my obedience, and that he will heal me when I go to Thailand. It was not the only reason that I wanted to go. I could not stand the thought of just laying in a bed in Norway the rest of my life and do nothing, and I knew that God had called me out there.
So November 2003 I went out to Thailand. But I did not become better.
I lay in bed for most of the time, and after a month I thought that if I fast, and then only eat rice for a week or two and try a medicine I had taken with me, then I’ll be well. I tried this, but when I started eating meat again, I reacted strongly to it and had great difficulty breathing again. Now my diet consisted of some green vegetables and rice.
My weight was down to around 110 lb (50 kilo), and three years before I weighed almost 198 pounds (90 kilo).
If I had not been depressed before, I was really depressed now. I felt no one could help me, not even God. I’ve experienced a lot of rejection in my life, and now I felt rejected by God. I had done everything I could think of, I tried all the doctors, used up all my money, and I had and even given myself to God, but nothing had helped. I said to God: Take my life, I will not live anymore.
This was what I felt, but deep down inside of me there was something that would not give up, I’ve always been one who would not give up, and I knew that God had not abandoned me either, even though it sometimes could feel like that. There was one person who prayed for me, and I became a little better. I went home to Norway after five months in Thailand, and in the fall of 2004 I went to a place in the United States to seek God for my healing.
