Life often presents us with stressful situations and it is easy to allow ourselves to succumb to fear, worry, and anxiety, but thanks be to God! He is our Ultimate Source of peace, hope, strength, courage, and joy amidst trial. We can trust Him to supply all of our needs and calm our anxious hearts with His Spirit of peace, joy, hope, and love! My hope and prayer is that these Bible verses and scriptural promises will encourage your heart and help you to experience the true peace of Christ, which surpasses all understanding!

Bible Verses About Stress – Worry – Anxiety

Before I share my 25 Bible verses for stress and anxiety, it is important to remember that many of our mental and emotional battles are caused by physical triggers. Research has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that eating a wholesome diet and avoiding harmful chemicals in our water and the air that we breathe can help stop stress and anxiety in its tracks. (source) Sadly, finding these things is becoming increasingly challenging in our fallen world as toxic chemicals have overtaken our soil and atmosphere. In spite of our efforts (and great expense) to purchase essential products for a healthy home, we still get sick and God is here to bless you with His healing touch when you need it.

Cry out to Him and seek this precious gift today!

My hope and prayer is that these verses encourage and build up your most holy faith. As you seek God for deliverance from stress and anxiety, I suggest you do your best to learn how to be healthy and make the proper abundant life-giving choices.

Using natural therapies like essential oils for stress and aromatherapy for anxiety often prove to be effective remedies, and making your own DIY anxiety aromatherapy inhaler is a synch!

Also, at the end of this article, I list my favorite products and resources for you to help you on your journey.

Shalom!

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?

Recommended Products for a Healthy Home

Giving your home a “make over” to support a new healthy lifestyle can seem daunting at first. Usually, you'll quickly discover that you need to replace many of the staple pantry items considered unsafe like othite, bleached sugar and flour. Then you'll notice that you need new kitchen gadgets to prepare all those fresh ingredients and DIY projects on your to-do list. After you've made over the kitchen, you start to think about other essential products for a healthy home like body care, household cleaners, and all kinds of stuff!

Rest assured that this is completely normal, so don't get stressed out about the transition. Take it all in baby-steps, focusing on the lowest hanging fruit. As you do what's easiest and most affordable to implement at first, you'll find that you can master the basics quite quickly. Then, next think you know, you're picking fruit on top of the tree that you once thought was impossible to do!

This, my friend, is all part of the adventure, and our prayer is that by sharing our experience and this list of our favorite products, you'll be inspired and encouraged on your own journey.

Must-Have Items to Stay Healthy

Must Have Items to Stay Healthy

Humans can live without food for a few weeks, without water for a few days and without air for just a few minutes. It's important to put things into perspective to see how absolutely vital these are to our existence, and it should motivate us to provide our bodies with the very best of what's available to us within our individual budgets. Because of this, I have found that these items are an absolute MUST if you want to minimize toxins, reduce your risk of developing disease and maintain a strong healthy profile:

  1. We love Aroma2Go diffusers in the Z housegold. If you're looking for USB ultrasonic diffuser they are so handy for on-the-go aromatherapy.
  2. Thrive Market – This is an online membership like Costco for health lovers! All of your favorite health products in one place for a great price, delivered to your door. Super convenient!  Dr. Z tribe members get a FREE gift for signing up for their 30-day trial! You can choose either a free jar of coconut oil, gluten-free coconut flour, jar of almond butter, non-toxic laundry detergent, jar of avocado mayo, pound of organic cacao powder super food, or free jar of raw honey. Decision, decisions!! ?
  3. Annmarie Skin Care – Your skin is a sponge, and the chemicals in conventional skin care products contain toxins that have been linked to a myriad of health conditions. My friends at Annmarie are offering $10 sample kits + $10 coupon just for the Dr. Z tribe!
  4. Wholetones Healing Frequencies Music – Using sound frequency to heal the mind and body is becoming a popular topic in the research community. Having been used for thousands of years in the form of ritual chants, this Christian-based music therapy has helped thousands of people by addressing the root cause of disease.
  5. Ceramic Cookware – Don't believe it, teflon is still bad for you! Glass is best, but it's way too hard to find, too expensive and too fragile. Ceramic is the most cost-effective, safest and durable solution! Use the code DRZ10 or click HERE to get a 10% off coupon!
  6. Shared Health Care Coverage – If you're like me, you're completely fed up with the current health care insurance model. Thankfully, I was introduced to Samaritan Ministries (a Biblical, non-insurance approach to health care needs) a while back. I cannot begin to tell you how much of a blessing this organization has been for my family and I, and I whole-heartedly refer them to all my friends and family. Please be sure to tell them that I referred you! 
  7. Air Purifier – Far too many people take for granted that every breath we take will either give us Abundant Life-giving gasses like nitrogen and oxygen, or fill our lungs with pollutants. Make sure you get a purifier that filters out mold and other allergens!
  8. Water Purifier – Last, but certainly not least is pure water. We were not designed by God to consume the harmful impurities that are found in processed, tap water. Whatever your budget can afford (sink mount, shower filter or an entire house system), start purifying your water today!

Supplements and Natural Remedies

Supplements and Natural Remedies

Like the Bible says, “The leaves of the trees are the healing of the nations,” and we have personally experienced wonderful results when using these natural remedies and supplements to keep our family healthy and strong! There are few products I recommend in this category as we've found most supplements to be useless – riddled with harmful fillers and manufactured in such a way that your body cannot properly absorb the ingredients. Essentially, most people pee and poop their money away because they're taking supplements that are undigested!

These items, however, will not only give your body essential nutrition that you cannot get in your normal diet, they have been formulated to ensure you benefit from taking them!
