HEALING POWERS OF SPANISH THYME
As I suffered with asthma, evil angels were constantly bombarding me with thoughts of suicide. The pain was so bad; I couldn't eat, I couldn't sleep and I couldn't perform any of my duties as a wife. The situation became so bad that I needed assistance with my daily duties at home.
The doctors and nurses at the hospital became so accustomed to seeing me that we were on first name basis with each other. On two occasions my heart had to be restarted. My heart just couldn't take the pressure and my lungs collapsed. On another occasion my usual doctor wasn't there and I was attended to by a doctor who couldn't speak English. He misdiagnosed me because he didn't understand that the nurse was saying, “Known asthmatic”. He thought she was saying “no asthmatic” and prescribed wrong medication which almost killed me.
Sis, I can only try to describe to you what I was going through. During this time I couldn't attend church on Sabbaths. The brethren were so supportive of me. One sister, Sis Nat…called me and sang to me (thinking about it now I'm actually tearing up). One Sabbath when I felt as if I could have made it to church I went and when the brethren saw my suffering they were shocked. Bro Medina, that dear, sweet man of God looked at me and shook his head and said, "Sis I am tired of seeing you suffering. This is what you will do. When you go home, take the broad leaf thyme, what we call 'spanish thyme' take a bunch and crush it up in some water. Boil and drink that, first thing in the morning, during the day as water and last thing at night".
Sis, I did as I was instructed. I drank an 8 ounce cup each time. When I took it the first time I got such a bad attack that I again ended up in the hospital. However, when I started to cough I felt as though something was being ripped from my lungs. I wanted to see what it was, so I came off the nebulizer and went into the bathroom and I coughed and coughed and sis, this monstrous glob of foul smelling, greyish, yellowish, greenish stuff with tentacles like an octopus that was attached to my lungs, came out. It filled my palm sis and was of the texture of sticky clay. When this thing came up I felt such a relief in my lungs and the rush of air that flooded my lungs, something I had never experienced ever in my life, such that I almost passed out.
Well I didn't go back on the nebulizer. I went home praising God and thanking bro. Medina. After that the cough was still very intense and I was still incontinent. However, the more I coughed the more of that stuff I brought up, until gradually the mucus began to come up milky in colour, then less and less milky until it began to run clear, after which I stopped coughing completely.
Sis that was two and a half years ago. I have had one very mild attack since and never again after that. My cure was simply the broad leaf thyme; drinking it in large doses all day. Every day my husband J and I used to hunt it down. He would ensure I had a good supply. Also sis L was my supplier so I had it in abundance. The key is in taking it every day until you are cured. Some people start and then stop. My dear sis, Bro Medina promised me that I would never have another attack again and his word was true. Now that I have been cured I take every opportunity to share my experience with the world, I am a living, clear breathing testimony of the healing powers of Broad leaf or Spanish thyme.
Thank you for this opportunity to share this with the world. I love this faith. I love health reform, I love my brethren and I love YHWH for bringing me to where life is, and I pray that many will be blessed by this testimony.

AN INSPIRING TESTIMONY LETTER
ABOUT BENEFITS OF RAW SALADS
Dear Sis. Anesia,
I have been eating raw salads for the past three years. I decided to go on a raw diet because of the genetics of my body. I have flesh that bruises easily; I break out in rashes, eczemas (hope I spelt that correctly), have very itchy skin. My family is also prone to cancer; my mother died of colon cancer. We are also prone to asthma, which I had so bad, sickle cell, which I also have, tumours of all sorts. I had one removed from my breast about six years ago and I have one now in my right thigh. None is cancerous and reducing rapidly because of my diet. I have weak nails, bad teeth, brittle bones, lol, you name it I have it in my DNA.
Here are some of the food I add to my salads and the benefits of using them:
1) Olives. It is my absolute favourite fruit. Apart from tasting so good they also eliminate high cholesterol levels, reduces degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's, benign and malignant tumours, controls blood sugar, blood pressure etc.
2) Chick Peas (Channa). Channa has this nutty flavour that I just love. I normally boil and eat it just like that-no salt, nothing. It controls appetite, is a great source of fibre, antioxidants, prevents blood clots, etc.
3 ) Red Onions. They contain plenty vitamins and minerals, including, folate, thiamine, calcium, magnesium, potassium etc.
4) Black Beans. This is another bean that I love to boil and eat just like that. It builds and maintains bone structure, it contains among other things, manganese, copper, zinc, calcium, iron, phosphorous etc.
5) Romaine Lettuce. I prefer this to the iceberg because it taste better and it is more resilient. However, most times I use both in my salads. It contains beta carotenes, vitamins K,A,C,B complexes (all your b vitamins), xanthium, for healthy eyes, etc.
6) WaterCress. When I came to the Truth I was a heavy smoker and Bro Medina told me to eat this in abundance to heal my lungs. The rest is history. This contains, among other things, vitamins A,C,K is good for bone health, protects vision, cardiovascular health, protects DNA against change etc.
Now I can go on and on about the other things I put into my salads. The thing is one can add anything to their salads according to their preference.
Since I have been on this diet, I have lost a great amount of weight, my vision has improved, my skin has improved, all aspects of my body inside and out have taken a turn for the better. Because of my diet the growth that I have in my leg is benign and is rapidly reducing. The olive oil has saved me from my bones grinding together and me being in excruciating pain. I cannot stress how beneficial is a vegan diet and especially a raw food diet. This is my lunch every single day.
I can go on and on, all to the honor and glory of YHWH.
Much love to you and your wonderful husband.
When YHWH created man, He give him a vegan diet; a diet void of the flesh from animals. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them...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. Genesis 2:27,29. However after the earth was destroyed due to the fact that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, the survivors of the flood were permitted a diet consisting of clean flesh.
As the earth aged, YHWH chose a people to represent him on earth as God alone. To make them a peculiar people they were given different reforms including health reform and through the health reform, they were to also learn about the sacredness of the seventh day Sabbath. YHWH rained bread from heaven for his chosen people. The called or chosen people of YHWH God is required to leave the bad habits practiced in the world and to now embrace and develop new healthful habits to the glory of God.
Daniel and the three Hebrew boys were representatives of YHWH in the courts of Babylon, and to secure their religious liberty they chose to abstain from the king’s meat. They added nothing to their bodies that will awaken evil passions or to cloud their judgements and cause them to sin against YHWH their God. Their duty to YHWH came first and to sustain their lives to live their purpose in Babylon, that is to let the world know that YHWH is God alone, they allowed faith to direct their diet.
Those who stand in Daniel’s lot, those that have the faith of Abraham in these last days, will present their bodies a living THUSIA (sacrifice) unto YHWH. They will be like Daniel in practice, they will be vegans, and they will adopt a lifestyle that will cause them to be in good health, even as their soul prospers, through the understanding of the scripture truths in these last days. They will live serving YHWH as God alone, not destroying their bodies but having a consciousness that their bodies are the temple of the Holy Ghost and their whole purpose is to say that YHWH is God alone against the argument of Lucifer that creation can be God with God.

The Value of Health Reform
“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” 3 John 2
We of the Thusia Seventh Day Adventist church believe that we are living in the last days of earth’s history. We understand that the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in the heart, through Justification, affects the entire man causing him to glorify God as God alone in everything. Following God’s diet-principles is no exception. We are health reformers in practice. We appreciate that the all-wise YHWH-God desires, not only that we grow spiritually, but that we “prosper and be in health”.
We see in the Bible that the original and best diet that was given by The Creator was a vegan diet. Genesis 1:29 tells us “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, The Creator gave man the healthiest diet to supply his health requirements that he may be in the best of health to glorify His Maker. For example, to spread the gospel of salvation from sin throughout the world by pen, voice and life.
Daniel and the three Hebrew boys also understood the importance of consuming the healthiest foods, in obedience to the Creator. Their resolute choice to eat “pulse” instead of “portion of the king’s meat” reaped tremendous benefits to the honour of God. The Bible declares that “ At the end of ten days their countenances appeared fairer and fatter in flesh than all the children which did eat of the portion of the king’s meat…God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom: and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams… And in all matters of wisdom and understanding that the king enquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his realm.” Daniel 1: 15, 17, 20.
We continue to emphasize health reform as we observe that wicked men are orchestrating the destruction of humanity though dangerous health practices like poisonous vaccines and the use of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s) by mega-rich organizations like Monsanto. Our health freedoms are also going. In certain states of America and other countries, vaccination is mandatory. No consideration is given to a person’s God-given right to Religious Liberty. Monsanto also continues to work craftily to put organic farmers out of business and to make health-destroying produce. Indeed, “evil men and seducers wax worse and worse…” (11 Timothy 3:13).
Our only security is having the character of Jesus Christ within, which would guide us into adopting the best health practices to his honor and glory and for our sustenance to fulfil our purpose.
We invite you to know the love of your Creator towards you, shown forth even in His instructions regarding your health. We pray that you may be greatly helped through the practical truths that we will share continually with you on this blog.
“The health reform is one branch of the great work which is to fit a people for the coming of the LORD. It is as closely connected with the third angel’s message as the hand is with the body.” Counsels on Health- Ellen G. White
