(Changing The Way You Eat)
In this new series, I will feature inspirational people who are ‘owning their health’ and have made transformational changes, in specific areas of their lives.
Chris Gore is the Director of Healing Ministries at Bethel Church California. He has been through a huge personal transformation when it comes to his health over the last decade.
This man has personally seen 1000’s of healing miracles and has trained 1000’s of Christians to walk in signs and wonders themselves. Ten years ago after a wake-up call, he decided that it was time to do what he could to ‘own his health’.
Here is snap shot of his health journey our interview, in his own words:
Chris, what started you on this health journey?
“10 years ago in 2009 after a routine Doctors appointment, I was shocked to discover that I had early onset diabetes. After a consultation with a natural Dr, they also discovered that I was highly gluten intolerant. This led me into a journey to where I am today!”
What results have you seen to your physical health after changing the way you eat?
“The changes along this 10-year journey have come with many errors. For the first nine years, despite eating to the health guidelines, the blood sugars never improved, even having lost some weight. After a further refinement, I have had a dramatic reduction in my A1c count to what is now deemed perfectly acceptable and healthy. After coming off gluten, 9 years ago, that was the last day that I ever had asthma, which I have suffered for many many years. In the last 6 months, I have achieved my lightest adult weight, (Lost 25 kgs!) while recording now incredible A1C blood count numbers, massive reductions in cholesterol and insulin resistance levels. All of the pains and aches have gone with way more increased energy.”
As a man who believes in and sees on a constant bases, radical healing miracles, what made you decide to ‘own your health’ and do your best to take responsibility for the factors that were within your control?
“Great question. I love miracles and have seen the power of God intervene in miracles. However, I do strongly believe that God’s best for our life is divine health, and that is what I am personally going after. That happens by “Owning our health” and stewarding how we look after ourselves. People say all the time that “I can’t lose weight” or that “diabetes is an age-related disease”. Both of these statements are incorrect. If you keep doing what you have always done, you will achieve the same poor results. It’s time to own our health and make necessary lifestyle changes. I’m not on a diet, I’m eating a lifestyle.”
How have these changes affected the way you think, your emotions and your overall mental health?
“The overall way I think, and mental health has had massive improvements. My mind is much sharper and emotions are way more stable.”
What is one bit of advice you would give someone who is starting to think about changing the way they eat?
“I would highly encourage everyone that is wanting to improve their health, to get a blood marker done. I would advise seeking good nutritional help, which unfortunately is hard to come by, as most nutritionists will tell you to eat a balanced diet, which is simply not working for people, as we keep getting fatter and fatter.”
