An apple a day keeps the doctor away!
Is this still true today when cancer, diabetes, ADHD, strokes and AIDs can be found in most families?
The answer is No.
An apple a day, or, for that matter, eating healthy, is not enough to prevent us from becoming sick today.
I am not going to discuss the current nutritional value of food.
I am going to tell you about a topic that I find very interesting which is;
The spiritual roots in diseases or as I see them – the rotten apples that cause sickness and disease.

Many diseases originate from fear, anxiety and stress.
