Have you ever heard of Andrographis? It’s an herb that has been widely used in Ayurvedic medicine in India since ancient times, but until recently, we have been missing out here in the U. S. What a workhorse this adaptogen has turned out to be! Here are just a few things we know about Andrographis: it protects the liver, strengthens immune defenses, stops viruses and resistance bacteria, soothes digestive disorders, and that’s the short list. We probably can’t get through every way you can benefit from Andrographis, but we’re going to try!

We can’t live a healthy life without plenty of cholesterol and healthy, good fats (butter, cream, lard, olive oil, coconut oil) in our diet.
Fats and cholesterol are not the enemy, and they should never be lowered or avoided for any reason. So, why are drugs prescribed so often to lower cholesterol? Could it be that the drug companies gain billions of dollars every year from the sales?

Live by a Higher Standard
There’s a constant pressure trying to squeeze you into being common, into doing what everyone else is doing today. Don’t let that thinking rub off on you. Today’s Scripture is saying you’re not common. You’re not like everyone else. You’ve not only been chosen by the Most High God, but He set you apart. He made you uncommon.
It takes courage to be different. It takes courage to not compromise. People will try to make you feel weak because you don’t go with the majority, you don’t party with everyone, you don’t gossip, you don’t play politics. The truth is, you’re not weak; you’re strong. You are uncommon. People around you may be giving in to temptation, doing things you know are not the best. That’s the enemy trying to deceive you into being common. He knows that if you’re like everyone else, it will keep you from becoming all you were created to be. Don’t fall into that trap. Be uncommon.
“Father, thank You that You not only chose me, but You set me apart to be Your special treasure. I’m not going to be pressured into compromising, and I’m not going to live like everyone else. I’m going to live by a higher standard, and I believe I will see uncommon favor. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
“You have been set apart as holy to the LORD your God, and he has chosen you from all the nations of the earth to be his own special treasure....” (Deuteronomy 14:2, NLT)
