Headache

Proverbs 26: 2
As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come.

​Disease is an effort of nature to free the system from conditions that result from a violation of the laws of health. In case of sickness, the cause should be ascertained. Unhealthful conditions should be changed, wrong habits corrected. Then nature is to be assisted in her effort to expel impurities and to re – establish right conditions in the system. Ministry of Healing, 127.

Job 29:16
I was a father to the poor: and the cause which I knew not I searched out.
Proverbs 4:16
For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
