The Bible predicts that when Jesus Christ returns to earth “there will be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and the unjust.” Acts 24:15. When His “trumpet will sound,” believers will be given new, perfect bodies. “This corruptible,” wrote Paul, will “put on incorruption,” and “this mortal,” will “put on immortality.” 1 Corinthians 15:53. How fantastic! Until then, our present bodies get old, become diseased, and die.
As we await the Big Day, we can still make wise choices to improve our health. Below you will find links to valuable resources and websites that teach simple, scientifically-established, practical principles for disease recovery and healthy living. The organizers of warnthecities.com strongly promote the following eight simple laws of health reflected in the popular acronym, NEWSTART, developed by Weimar Institute. NEWSTART stands for:
N = Nutrition
E = Exercise
W = Water
S = Sunlight
T = Temperance (self-control)
A = Fresh Air
R = Rest and Relaxation
T = Trust in God’s love
Below is an introductory list of valuable
resources—based on the eight laws of health—to aid
you on your journey toward a healthier life, even on this earth.

Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all
things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
3 John 2
“If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you.”
Bless the LORD, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits:
Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases.
The only hope of better things is in the education of the people in right principles. Let physicians teach the people that restorative power is not in drugs, but in nature. Disease is an effort of nature to free the system from conditions that result from a violation of the laws of health. In case of sickness, the cause should be ascertained. Unhealthful conditions should be changed, wrong habits corrected. Then nature is to be assisted in her effort to expel impurities and to re-establish right conditions in the system. Pure air, sunlight, abstemiousness, rest, exercise, proper diet, the use of water, trust in divine power–these are the true remedies.
—Ellen G. White, The Ministry of Healing, p. 127
