• Welcome to Christian Forums
  1. Welcome to Christian Forums, a forum to discuss Christianity in a friendly surrounding.

    Your voice is missing! You will need to register to be able to join in fellowship with Christians all over the world.

    We hope to see you as a part of our community soon and God Bless!

  2. The General Mental Health Forum is now a Read Only Forum. As we had two large areas making it difficult for many to find, we decided to combine the Mental Health & the Recovery sections of the forum into Mental Health & Recovery as a whole. Physical Health still remains as it's own area within the entire Recovery area.

    If you are having struggles, need support in a particular area that you aren't finding a specific recovery area forum, you may find the General Struggles forum a great place to post. Any any that is related to emotions, self-esteem, insomnia, anger, relationship dynamics due to mental health and recovery and other issues that don't fit better in another forum would be examples of topics that might go there.

    If you have spiritual issues related to a mental health and recovery issue, please use the Recovery Related Spiritual Advice forum. This forum is designed to be like Christian Advice, only for recovery type of issues. Recovery being like a family in many ways, allows us to support one another together. May you be blessed today and each day.

Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths. Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum.
  4. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  5. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.
  6. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.

Anyone interested in heart healthy support?

    I was thinking setting personal goals, changing lifestyle, being accountable.

    My personal changes are:

    • Start with zero fast food during recovery, eventually allow monthly better choices
    • Increasing my daily walk until I can handle what I used to
    • Increasing my vegetable intake
    • Avoiding prepared foods in my kitchen
    At this point I am still in recovery, so it's natural for me to stick to it. Eventually I am going to get lazy and slip up. That is when I need people to tell me off.

    Anyone want to join me with your own personal goals?
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    That sounds great, here is spring and the nettles has reached their healthy tasty6-10 inch stage. I know it is a weed but one can make food of it and it is very healthy. I have even plans of putting some in the freezer. It needs to cook 30 sek to a minute, Then it needs a cold water rinse and then it needs to be chopped into pieces. Packed and stacked and taste like spinach. Free from the nature. We also have a yellow flower in swedish Maskros, that is great for melting fat and aiding diabetes. Mom got rid of her diabetes2 meds and it is a common weed. First one eats the leaf in sallads ten a day until they get too bitter, then ten flowers a day, then in august or so or when weeding one can harvest the roots and wash them peel them and cut or pulverize them. Mom has lost 40 lbs and it didn't cost a penny and she has less weed among her flowers. Less fat means also less likelihood of heartdisease. So now I also pick these leaves and flowers and put them in a vase on the table for lunch. Good luck with Your vegetable diet.

    I buy organic nettle tea in the grocery store. It's available pretty much everywhere! Outside and on the shelves! :)

    Fish oils are also very good for the heart and I take magnesium not just for the heart but also for bone and muscle health. Working out with weights is also very beneficial for all muscle and I can feel it when I slack off. I literally have to kick my own butt into gear when I get lazy! :p Green tea is also great because I can't handle coffee.

    I harvested nettles yesterday, they grow on our yard as weeds. We put them in all sorts of foods. I have been lazy with my workouts lately since I have more gardenwork. I now am down to using 10 kg dumbells and 70 kg deadlift. I have not been to the gym for some time but I work up my pulse several times a day with gardening. I did read that salmon in Canada has been radioactive and norveigian salmon haspcb and dies of licetreatment so I hope sardine oil is better but one never knows.

    I am interested. I have survived a cardiac arrest and have to be careful.
