Veronica Learned What Causes Eczema Through Be in Health®, and God Healed Her as She Applied the Biblical Insights to Her Life
I want to share my testimony of healing from eczema and depression because I figure this would be the best way to honor Dr. Henry Wright’s (1944-2019) legacy. It was through the understanding that I got from Be in Health about what causes eczema and the Biblical insights they teach about the spiritual roots of disease®that I learned to overcome and was healed by God.
Tormented by symptoms
A little over a year ago, I had severe eczema. I didn’t just have a little dry skin, but non-stop itching, painful inflammation (flaring up every few days), cracked skin, open wounds, chills, fatigue, and little energy or physical strength. At one point, I was not even able to hold up my head. For almost a year, I did not have full use of my arms. The itching was so unbearable, and I was not able to sleep through the night. I remember waking up crying many times; it was such a living nightmare.
I was diagnosed with eczema, which is an autoimmune disease, at around four years old. Since that time, I was put on steroid medications. However, I decided to get off those medications because they were not working anymore.
Nothing else worked
I tried EVERYTHING; special diets, food elimination, supplements, oils, BUT my condition continued to worsen. It got to the point where almost my whole body was covered with eczema.
Eczema is a stress-related disease. In spiritual terms, that means fear! Ever since I was young, I battled fear, anxiety, and depression. The fear I had, which snowballed into depression, often manifested through suicidal thoughts. Most of my life, I was desperately insecure and had overwhelming feelings of worthlessness and hopelessness.
I just wanted to end it all
My life almost ended one day, 22 years ago. My husband took our infant son out for the day to give me a break. When they left, I planned to take my life. I heard voices telling me, “you are not a good wife, you are not a good mother, you are not a good Christian, and you’d be doing more harm than good by staying in the world.” Thankfully, Angelo came home with our son and stopped me in time.
God’s Word changed me
I knew I couldn’t live that way anymore and knew I had to make a change. The change came through God’s Word, which I began speaking, praying, and meditating on every day. This became my medicine. I know this is the cure, because to this day, I no longer battle with depression and suicidal thoughts. I overcame my self pity. When I heard the Be in Health principles, I knew exactly what they were talking about.
Truth I could relate to
I found Dr. Henry W. Wright’s book, A More Excellent Way®, almost a year ago. In it he explored the possible spiritual roots of disease and disorders. When I read it, I knew I finally found the truth. I discovered the possible spiritual roots of my eczema. They were generational fear, guilt, bitterness, self-bitterness, self-hatred, anxiety, drivenness, and perfectionism. Much of these roots emanated from a broken heart. Soon after, God even gave me a personal prescription to eat (without fear or guilt), and to laugh and enjoy life. This was something I had never done.
Then I commended mirth, because a man hath no better thing under the sun, than to eat, and to drink, and to be merry: for that shall abide with him of his labour the days of his life, which God giveth him under the sun. Ecclesiastes 8:15 KJV
Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad. Proverbs 12:25 KJV
A merry heart doeth good like a medicine (cure): but a broken spirit drieth the bones. Proverbs 17:22 KJV
My healing process
As I dealt with these spiritual root issues, the eczema, which was severe, went to moderate, now it’s almost completely gone. I’m still believing to be 100% healed. I know that God is taking His time with me, so this healing for my heart and body can last.
God not only wants to heal you, but He also wants to change your life. I had to make some life changes. I had a lot of repenting to do from things I was not even aware of. But God lovingly and patiently has taken me every step of the way. This has turned into a true sanctification process. Not only am I being healed, but I feel like I’m being saved all over again! God promises to save and sanctify us wholly spirit, soul, AND body!
And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and [I pray God] your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 5:23 KJV
There is hope for you too!
I’m excited to continue this journey of sanctification in my life. If you’re struggling with disease, disorders, or depression, know that God’s Word is the cure! He desires to completely heal you in your spirit, soul, AND body!
Lastly, if you have a disease, disorder, or depression, please consider the fact that there could very well be a spiritual root. If you’ve tried everything else, why not consider it? You might not know the God of the heavens and earth. But I can tell you in all my years of serving Him, He has never let me down. He is the best Father! He is the God who has made us, and He is the only one who can fix us!
