I Saw the Author, Joe Horn in a TV interview where he talked very openly about his struggles with health that covered several years of his life. He spoke of what he felt like both physically and emotionally as his health went from bad to worse. In this book, Joe is very transparent about his journey to finding a healthy life again. It was truly interesting to hear from someone firsthand who had been through so much speaking so honestly about his experience.
Was Timebomb written for you?
In my opinion what you will get out of this book depends on where you are in your own knowledge about health, food, and nutrition. Although the author of this book did lose weight, this is not a book about diet or weight loss. Timebomb is a very eye-opening book for those who have little knowledge of what really goes on behind the scenes when it comes to our food, how it’s grown and processed. How the FDA and USDA have failed to properly label our foods and what is added to them for various purposes. He explained how some common ailments that are completely reversible can be caused by consuming GMO foods. And how some toxic ingredients that are added to certain foods can actually impair the functionality of your mind. Just one example from two different brands of salad mix I purchased. The packaging indicates who they are Distributed by. It doesn’t say where or how it was grown or processed. Other food items, actually most of our grocery foods are labeled this way. We have no idea where it came from, how it was grown, or where it may have been processed. This includes our meats as well. We have seen in the news reports over the years often warning of overcrowding in the meat industry causing health problems for the animals to the point that many farmers are using antibiotics the help keep their herds and flocks healthy.
Our medical industry
The book also talks about our medical industry. Doctors are schooled these days to alleviate symptoms, more so than they are on how to actually get to the root cause and prevent what is causing those symptoms. Because of this, there can sometimes be more damage done to the patient’s body over time. With symptoms less pervasive we think we are better or at least getting better when the medication is only masking and holding them back. Meanwhile, all this time it is no better or maybe actually getting worse but being somewhat controlled by the medication as far as symptoms go. Like a timebomb waiting to blow. He discusses and has sections written by holistic medical practitioners giving their background and knowledge.
He not only tells what happened to him personally but shares practical information that can help someone else who is living with things like food allergies, a constant need for antibiotics, diabetes, brain fog, fibromyalgia, digestive issues, leaky gut syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, and several others. He carefully details all of the reference resources he used to get information for this book. So you know exactly where the information came from and can look up the references yourself if you want to. He leads the reader through easy, practical things they can do for the ticking timebomb that may be lurking in your gut just waiting to wreak havoc on your body. As someone who had little information about these things but some fair-sized problems in my own gut health, this book was a great read and reference for me. There is truly a lot of useful information that I have been able to put into practice in my own life along with a great supplement I am now taking that is all-natural from Regenr8 (not related to the book Timebomb). This book has helped me to see the mistakes I was making without realizing it. It has definitely made me more knowledgeable about how to make better food choices. In my opinion, Timebomb is a great reference for someone who is having some health problems they just can’t shake. Especially if they are skin, digestive or stomach related in some way. For those who already have some knowledge, it is an amazing story of one man’s journey through several years of failing health and what poor food choices were doing to him and his family and his road to finding wellness. If you are one of those people who are trying to get someone else to understand what you know, this could be a good book for them. Our goal should be to have better overall health through a proper lifestyle. That is much better than a pill for every ill and being dependent on an outside chemical for the rest of your life.
I hope this information has been helpful to you. Honestly, when you don’t have your health, your quality of life really sinks low. Many, even most ailments can be controlled by eating and drinking the right things. It’s so worth it to learn how. In Amos 3:7 we are told that the Lord God does nothing without revealing His plan to His servants the prophets. Jesus is the greatest prophet that ever walked the earth. God in many places in the scriptures tells us not to fear but to be prepared. Let me leave you with words from the lips of Jesus himself. Luke 21:11 There will be great earthquakes, famines, and pestilences in various places, along with fearful sights and great signs from heaven.
