Nature’s Immune Builders: Mission Statement

Our world is in crisis. COVID-19 has unearthed humanity’s vulnerability to a virulent new disease that begins its work by disarming the body’s natural immune defense.  Public health efforts aim to reduce transmission through vaccination, social distancing, hygiene, and mask-wearing. Medical science research is focused primarily on developing treatments for late-phase disease.

What’s missing? A comprehensive strategy to enhance the body’s innate and acquired immune response. The Adventist health message has never been more relevant than now. To meet this urgent need, Adventist Medical Evangelism Network, known as AMEN, has developed Nature’s Immune Builders, a web-based plan to quickly and efficiently transform our churches into lifesaving beacons of hope, health, and healing, and to equip every member to be a medical missionary for such a time as this. Anchored in Scripture, informed by science, and illuminated by the writings of Ellen White, Nature’s Immune Builders incorporates heaven’s natural remedies into a shareable action plan for churches now.

A comprehensive natural remedies and healthy lifestyle plan to equip Seventh-day Adventists to bring light and blessing to their communities.

Goal

To mobilize Seventh-day Adventist health and ministry leaders and lay members to effectively share the simple health-saving principles effectively and simply with their neighbors, friends, and communities by lifting up Jesus, the Lifegiver, and His saving health message.

Sharing Tips

There are two ways to share: online or in person. These methods can be adapted for either approach.

This isn’t so much about preparing what you will say as learning to ask effective, engaging questions. The response you get will help you determine what resource would be best to share. It’s easy to engage people from all walks of life in conversation: Your hairdresser, grocery checkout clerk, plumber, neighbor, friend, your online friend community, fellow church members, city and county officials, community leaders, business owners, school teachers, and parents, strangers. If you feel uncomfortable starting a conversation with a stranger, start with someone you know.
