A Basis for Good Health

Presented by Clovis M. Honoré - President, San Diego Black Health Associates.

Part 1: The Reason

Human beings don’t do anything with a reason - A “Why”.  Part 1 of this discussion is to help you understand the “reason” why you are healthy…or not.

 

Spirit – Soul – Mind & Heart – Brain – Body

The Spirit

I believe in a Spirit Universe.  I believe the Spirit Universe permeates all existence – matter, energy, space, and those things beyond our affiliation with what some of us call the “Material Universe”.  I believe that the Spirit Universe is intelligent, structured and purposeful.  I also believe that it is, by nature, Relational.  I believe the “Material Universe” is a distinct manifestation of the Spiritual Universe.

The human immune system usually finds and kills viruses fairly quickly, but HIV attacks the immune system itself - the very thing that would normally get rid of a virus. This virus results in the body not being able to defend itself from external diseases and this causes AIDS.

Is there a Difference Between HIV and AIDS?
