At Red River Wellness Retreat…
We recognize that man is three-dimensional––mental, physical, and spiritual. More often than is realized the mental and spiritual affects the physical, yet they are neglected. There are so many who are suffering from physical maladies that can only be addressed by mental dispositions such as anger, bitterness, unforgiveness, hatred, depression, anxiety, etc. Our programs are holistic as we try to get to the root of the problem.
Our program is designed to assist with the following health conditions:
- Digestive Disorders
- High Blood Pressure
- Mental Health (Depression, Anxiety, Stress, Grief)

“Trust in the LORD with all thine heart
Trusting in God is the foundation of all good health. By putting all of our dependence upon the Lord, we have the assurance that God is in control and He will take care of us. When we put our faith in God, we need not stress. In fact, stress adversely affects the immune system, which leaves us susceptible to sickness and disease. Additionally, trusting in God gives us complete peace of mind and assurance. It is this peace that calms our senses and produces true joy, which secretes hormones into the system that invigorate and strengthen every cell of the body. Furthermore, a sound faith in God leads to positive thinking, which results in
“…I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live.” Ezekiel 37:5
Daily open air is essential to maintaining health. Fresh air oxygenates the system, thus purifying the blood. Additionally, our lungs need a constant supply of fresh air in order to function properly. It is also essential for the immune system to receive proper air to strengthen its ability to ward off foreign substances such as disease.
“And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it…” Genesis 2:15
Even before sin entered the world, God appointed man labor to prevent idleness, to see God’s beauty and as a means of exercise. Exercise is essential for proper stimulation of the lymphatic system, thus strengthening the body’s ability to resist and/or fight disease. Through exercise,
“And they said unto the messengers that came, Thus shall ye say unto the men…To morrow, by that time the sun be hot, ye shall have help. And the messengers came and shewed it to the men…and they were glad.” 1 Samuel 11:9
God has given us sunshine to make us happy! Sunshine serves many purposes for our bodies. It stimulates the immune system by increasing the oxygen supply to the skin. Sunshine also produces Vitamin D, which stimulates the liver, white blood cell count, alleviates pain, kills germs, elevates the mood, produces negative ions, develops healthy skin and aids in the elimination of waste.
“…I should have slept: then had I been at rest.” Job 3:11
The Bible associates “rest” with “peace and quietness”. When we enter into rest, all sense of hurriedness and confusion should leave. We should be in an environment conducive to proper rest of mind, soul, and body. The body needs a sufficient amount of rest to repair and restore the organs and functions of the body. Without proper rest, the systems of the body eventually break down, causing a lack of mental capabilities.
Lots of Water
“Thou shalt drink also water by measure, the sixth part of
The proper consumption of water is vital to our longevity and benefits our overall health. Water is one of the main components of the body, accounting for between 60-70%. It is, therefore, necessary for us to sufficiently supply our bodies with this most precious substance. Further, our cells need water, for without it they will die in a mere three days. Our body needs water to regulate body temperature and to provide the means for nutrients to travel to our organs. Water also transports oxygen to our cells, removes waste and protects our joints and organs. Blood is over 80% water, therefore a lack causes blood thickening. Without sufficient water, the body will pull water from the skin, liver, kidneys, colon, blood, bones or the brain. This can cause skin dryness, kidney stones, constipation, blood clotting, arthritis and headaches among other things.
One might be asking, how much water should I be drinking? An easy way to find out is by taking your weight and dividing it by 2. This gives you how many ounces of water your body requires per day. For example, if a person weighs 120 pounds, we would divide that by 2 to get 60. Therefore they should drink 60 ounces of water a day.
Water is also beneficial when used outside of the body, in the form of hydrotherapy. Hydrotherapy is the practice of using water externally for the treatment or prevention of sickness and disease. Cold water constricts the flow of blood while very warm water dilates, or opens up to increase the flow of blood. God has given us simple, natural remedies to care for our bodies since they were designed to heal itself.
“And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things.” 1 Corinthians 9:25
These scriptures teach us a wonderful lesson about temperance. Temperance is commonly defined simply as being moderate or exercising self-control in regards to diet. Though this certainly is a correct position to hold, temperance embodies more than mere diet. Temperance is a lifestyle. We are to be “temperate in all things” as the Scripture points out. This includes, but is not limited to: work, activities, recreation, rest, exercise, etc. Moreover, we are told that temperance is abstaining completely from all harmful toxins and keeping in moderation those things which are health-producing. Put plainly, we must free the body from all known toxins such
“And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to
God desires that we take care of the bodies which He has created. Therefore, from this verse, we see that God provides our first parents with the formula to maintain that which He has created. Let’s agree to trust that God knows what the best foods are to sustain these bodies for His glory. This plant-based diet consists
That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all nations. Ps 67:2
