Audio Transcript

Wendie: Hi, this is Wendie Pett, Director of Sales and Marketing for Bronze Bow Publishing, and I am here with KC Craichy. How are you today?

KC: I’m doing great, Wendie. How are you doing?

Wendie: Good. I’m so glad you could come out to Minneapolis and join us for this interview. On your “Sixth Golden Key“, you talk about environmental toxins, and one of the most common is EMF or electromagnetic frequencies. What are the others and will you elaborate on this a little bit?

KC: These environmental hazards are pretty broad and we, as Americans, don’t even realize what we’re doing to ourselves. Pesticides and herbicides are huge environmental hazards. Even the people that are spraying stuff on their lawn outside and their kids are running on it. That is cumulative over long periods of time. If things are spraying to kill the mosquitoes as they ride by your house without even telling you, that’s hazardous. Drinking tap water is hazardous. As we talked about the other day, hazards in just drinking simple things like coffee and Cokes and that sort of thing. And then, you’ve got the food chain, and what they’re doing to our food chain with genetically modified foods. It’s a real big issue. And then, you have issues of food processing. What they’re doing in food processing, food irradiation. And then what they feed the food before you get it, like they feed cows grains and they’re not designed to have grains so that whacks out their fatty acid profiles of the meats. Grains and hormones and all those things. A cow comes into the feed lot at roughly 400 pounds and they feed it straight corn and it goes to 800 pounds. So, you can tell that’s what it does to us, too, when we eat grains. And I want to remind the listeners that corn is not a vegetable, even though it’s in the mixed vegetables at the store, corn is a grain and corn will fatten you up.

Wendie: Very true. How can people afford to eat healthy? The organic foods are more expensive. We want to do this right, and we want to learn from you and we are very blessed to hear this knowledge, but how can we afford to do this?

KC: Obviously, organic foods are more expensive, no doubt about it. But if you would look at what you save from not buying boxed foods and snacks and orange juice and a lot of things…

Wendie: Doctor visits.

KC: … Doctor visits, particularly doctor visits. But you would be surprised at how much money you can save that way. And buying organic meats is very important. But if you’re on a budget and you can’t afford those sort of things, then what I call it is navigating the land mines, staying away from toxic foods, fried foods, things along those lines and staying with the Leviticus diet and the Genesis 1:29 diets. I add them together, where you’ve got nuts and seeds and fruits and vegetables and primarily vegetables and greens as opposed to fruits. And then, you stay with Leviticus meats which would be the cow and the bison and the lamb, animals that have hooves and chew their cud is what the Bible tells us about it. Interestingly, the things that the Bible tells us don’t eat, like don’t eat pig or don’t even touch the dead carcass of a pig, the reality of it is that science is telling us the same thing. The reality of it is it’s not the other white meat, or maybe it is, but it’s certainly not something that you should eat.

Wendie: It’s not good for you.

KC: It’s not good for you, no. And then, also shellfish. The Bible talks about that as an abomination. The reality of it is that science also calls it an abomination. A friend of mine recently went to the hospital. He had gotten some bad shrimp, and I mentioned to another friend that he had gotten some bad shrimp and they said he now has diverticulitis. That’s an acute situation, not a chronic situation because he had gotten some bad shrimp. And someone said to me, what do you mean he got some bad shrimp? Where’d he get that? I said, brother, you ought to be surprised any time you eat shrimp and don’t go to the hospital.

Wendie: Gosh, yes, shellfish is just bad news. I actually, in high school, caught hepatitis from eating a raw oyster. I didn’t know any better. .

KC: That’s right.

Wendie: And we don’t.

KC: People need to avoid that line of foods.

Wendie: Absolutely. I want you to talk a little bit about prayer and meditation. So many people think that prayer and meditation are the same thing, but this particular key is the last one that you mention but certainly it’s not the least important.

KC: It’s critically important. Yes, it’s the most important. Getting in touch with your creator and getting a relationship is more important than anything else we’ve talked about. And the clinical literature supports that, for those of you who are non-believers at this point. The clinical literature shows a tremendous power in prayer. In fact, there’s a project at Duke University, not a Christian university obviously, that is called the Mantra Project. In the Mantra Project they had two groups of cardiac patients. One was put on prayer lists worldwide and not told, and the other group was not put on any prayer lists. And the ones that were on the prayer lists without knowledge of being prayed for had 50% fewer side effects after cardiac surgery. So, there’s a book by Dr. Dale Matthews at Georgetown University called “Faith Factor”. He outlines a tremendous amount of clinical evidence to the power of prayer.

Wendie: That’s right. It’s very powerful.

KC: It’s clearly a power even in the secular community. It’s pretty much malpractice really to not be prayed for or not have your doctor tell you that prayer is important.

Wendie: Absolutely.

KC: So, prayer is important but that’s making known your praise and prayer to God.

Wendie: That’s half the relationship.

KC: That’s half the relationship. Be still and know that I’m God and listen for the quiet still soft voice of God is the meditation piece. He tells us to meditate on his word. He also tells us to be still and listen because that’s when revelation is going to happen.

Wendie: You’re right. And I think as busy and as hectic as this world is, that is a piece of the puzzle that a lot of people leave out. And it’s very important.

KC: Amen. Wendie:

Thank you, KC.
