Audio Only


John Harvey Kellogg today famous for the breakfast cereals named after him was once one of the foremost physicians in the United States. At one point his hospital was one of the biggest in the USA but his relationship with the church and its teachings would get complicated and eventually there would be a parting of the ways. A great life and talent that would sadly veer off track.

In 863 in all Sago Michigan Ellen White was given her healthy vision where she was shown things that were way ahead of the medical practices of her time for example she was shown the tobacco was a slow insidious and most malignant poison common knowledge to us today in her time the medical wisdom would have prescribed or at least not deterred you from using tobacco should you have any throat or lung issues it wasn't until a 100 years later when the surgeon general of the United States finally condemned the use of tobacco.

Unfortunately today this message has often been neglected and while many recognize that we do have a message and understand the truth and validity of it many people do not live up to what they know about health their health work was created to be the right it was to assist.
