​How to Preserve Health

106. Many have inquired of me, What course shall I take best to preserve my health? My answer is, Cease to transgress the laws of your being; cease to gratify a depraved appetite, eat simple food, dress healthfully, which will require modest simplicity, work healthfully, and you will not be sick…. Many are suffering in consequence of the transgression of their parents. They cannot be censured for their parents’ sins, but it is nevertheless their duty to ascertain wherein their parents violated the laws of their being; and wherein their parents’ habits were wrong, they should change their own course, and place themselves, by correct habits, in a better relation to health. – The Health Reformer, August 1, 1866. HL 30.8

107. The harmonious, healthy action of all the powers of body and mind results in happiness; the more elevated and refined the powers, the more pure and unalloyed the happiness. An aimless life is a living death. The mind should dwell upon themes relating to our eternal interests. This will be conducive to health of body and mind. – The Review and Herald, July 29, 1884. HL 31.1

108. God has pledged himself to keep this living machinery in healthful action if the human agent will obey his laws and co-operate with God. – Unpublished Testimonies, January 11, 1897. HL 31.2
