No More Band-aids is a ministry of encouragement and discipleship to those with who are going through major stress in their life or those suffering from chronic mental or physical illness who want to improve their health and wellness through nutrition, lifestyle management, education, and dependance on Jesus Christ. Would you consider living your faith out loud by stepping out of the “band-aid box” of our health care system and embracing a faith/health connection with Jesus Christ? Have you ever considered what the Bible says about your chronic condition or the stress related incident you are facing? Each month, through my blog, I share the good news of Jesus Christ with you, as it relates to stress relief, nutrition and health and wellness. Through the Whole In My Heart Bible study, I share personally with small groups of ladies in the local Atlanta area how utilize the great gift of the Holy Spirit that God has given each and every Christian to help us overcome and experience the fullness of His joy.
Another huge part of my ministry is spent consulting with people who are in an unhealthy state of mind or body. As a certified nutrition consultant, I work with them, free of charge to develop a personal healthy living plan assisting them to reach health and wellness goals. As well, I provide research on a variety of topics such as chronic disease, cooking, supplements and nutrition. If you are chronically ill and on a variety of medications, we utilize a computer program to provide you with a detailed analysis of how your medications interact with one another and how they affect you physically and mentally. This gives you the much needed information to take to the Dr. with you when you are experiencing side effects and need to tweak your medications. We also provide supplement guides with and evidence based studies that might be available for your Dr. in case you would like to try one, under the supervision of your medical care provider.
My inspiration for this ministry comes through the trials of life and my experiences dealing with stress in both the right and wrong ways. I have an adult child with severe gluten intolerance and ADHD and a mother with Parkinson’s disease. Although we will always experience illness and will need medicine from time to time, we have comfort knowing that when we trust in the Lord, His will is accomplished in our lives and His comfort is always available to help us through our struggles, even in death. Through our obedience to Him we can find peace and, through His provision, we can find hope and relief from many of today’s high-profile, chronic illnesses.
