Air - Lots of clean air for good health


"The influence of pure, fresh air is to cause the blood to circulate healthfully through the system.   It refreshes the body, and tends to render it strong and healthy, while at the same time its influence is decidedly felt upon the mind, imparting a degree of composure and serenity.   It excites the appetite, and renders the digestion of food more perfect, and induces sound and sweet sleep.

  In the beginning, God breathed into man's "nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul." (Gen. 2:7.) Therefore, oxygen is the most vital element in our living being and though it costs nothing in cash, and though it is obtainable in every inch of the earth's area, the human race, as a whole, is starving for it!  Symbolic Code Vol.1 No. 17 page 8

   "Air, air, the precious boon of Heaven, which all may have, will bless you with its invigorating influence, if you will not refuse it entrance. Welcome it, cultivate a love for it, and it will prove a precious soother of the nerves. Air must be in constant circulation to be kept pure. The influence of pure, fresh air is to cause the blood to circulate healthfully through the system. It refreshes the body, and tends to render it strong and healthy, while at the same time its influence is decidedly felt upon the mind, imparting a degree of composure and serenity. It excites the appetite, and renders the digestion of food more perfect, and induces sound and sweet sleep." -- "Testimonies for the Church," Vol. 1, p. 702.


The lungs should be allowed the greatest freedom possible.   Their capacity is developed by free action; it diminishes if they are cramped and compressed.  Hence the ill effects of the practice so common, especially in sedentary pursuits, of stooping at one's work.  In this position it is impossible to breathe deeply.  Superficial breathing soon becomes a habit, and the lungs lose their power to expand.   A similar effect is produced by tight lacing....

Thus an insufficient supply of oxygen is received.   The blood moves sluggishly.   The waste, poisonous matter, which should be thrown off in the exhalations from the lungs, is retained, and the blood becomes impure.   Not only the lungs, but the stomach, liver, and brain are affected.   The skin becomes shallow, digestion is retarded; the heart is depressed; the brain is clouded; the thoughts are confused; gloom settles upon the spirits; the whole system becomes depressed and inactive, and peculiarly susceptible to disease."
Councils on Diet and Foods, Ellen G. White p. 104, 105
