Good health is something we often take for granted when we're young. Most of us don't realize good health is a blessing God gives us because he Loves us so much.
As we move away from God (sin) and get closer to the world (evil) our health begins to deteriorate. Doctors and hospitals do not provide health. They mostly destract us from our pain while God himself does the work of healing our body.
God gives life and healing to our mortal body. As our awareness of God increases, and our fear and awe of His presence increases, so does also our fullness of life and our health.
