Health has many important components associated with it. I have found the most immediate to be faith. Faith is locking into a higher power and then obeying what that higher power wants you to do. Hopefully, that higher power is the Heavenly Father. When one submits their will to the higher power and obeys, a whole new dimension opens up. It is like taking the red pill in the Matrix.
