It is said that in the ancient Orient, doctors’ salaries were suspended if their patient became worse; the doctor himself being held responsible for all expenses. It was agreed that the doctor’s job was to keep people well. The Shurai, a three-thousand year old Chinese book, distinguishes five levels of doctors according to the type of medicine being practiced. The highest doctor is the sage; he is followed by the food doctor.… The most revered doctor, the philosopher doctor, teaches about the harmonious order of man and his world. The teachings of the food doctor are classified as preventive medicine, which is known as the medicine of longevity. – Healing Ourselves by Naboru Muramato
The salient point in the above reference is that a true doctor is a teacher. In our community, we teach that becoming a Divine doctor is a limited career undertaking. With this understanding, we in our Ministry of Divine Health are accepting the challenge to teach the members of our community to be “health literate”. This is the impetus of the Health Literary Series we present four times per year during our live weeks.
The Health Literary Series began in March of 2008 and is designed to reinforce the minds of all who attend. We give all honor and thanks to our anointed leader, Ben Ammi, who is the master teacher, and has inspired us to replicate him in our endeavors. Over the course of time, we have covered many topics such as “The Importance of the Dietary Laws,” “The Serious Dangers of Cell Phones,” “The Righteous Power of the Sun,” “The Diabetes Pandemic/Epidemic: A Reality for Vegans” and “Immortality: Living Within the Everlasting Cycles of Yah”.
The Health Literary Series continues to inform, encourage and inspire our community members and the guests who attend, towards physical immortality. Most of the seminars have been audio and video recorded and we hope to have those presentations available very soon for anyone who wants to enhance their literacy in health.
