"Why I've never gone for medical treatment abroad"

Prophet Joshua in a live telecast on Sunday, January 4 told his members that he drinks lots of water

Founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Temitope Joshua has revealed to his congregation the secret of his good health.

According to freelance journalist, Ihechukwu Njoku, Prophet Joshua in a live telecast on Sunday, January 4 told his members that he drinks lots of water.

“Blessing without good health is a crisis because you cannot enjoy it,”  he said.

Joshua explained that he had received numerous e-mails questioning how he was able to sustain his good health over the years as he had never been seen absent during a church service, neither had there been reports of his travelling abroad for medical treatment.

“We are a spirit, we have a soul and we live in a body,” the cleric informed his listeners, referring them to the Scriptures in 1 Thessalonians 5:22-23. “The same body can get sick or tired and needs attention.”

He further clarified, “The natural and the spiritual must function together. For the natural to function, you must take care of the body.”

The popular televangelist also revealed his daily routine which he learned over the years “Before my morning prayer or immediately after my morning prayer – I am talking of 4am, 5am or 6am in the morning – I will take a 150cl bottle of water, pour it into a cup and in under two to three minutes, I make sure that I finish it.”

According to him, the secret behind this is not to drink when feeling thirsty, as most would do today. “I am not drinking it because I am thirsty. I am drinking it for a purpose – to flush my system,” he admonished the crowd.

According to Njoku, the pastor added that people should take another smaller 75cl bottle of water between 2-3pm and another one around 5-6pm. “This should replace all sugary drinks and tea if you want to have a good life,” he advised.

He also specified that the water should be room-temperature, not icy or cold, further explaining that tap water could as well be used if people did not have sufficient resources to purchase bottled water.

Joshua stated the benefits of this habit were multiple although it would be difficult to cultivate at the beginning. He claimed such regular intake of water would moderate eating habits, foster growth of natural hair and purify the skin.

“God has given us everything we need to live a good life but we are ignorant,” he concluded, stressing that people would share testimonies in their health if they followed this advice.
