Spiritual Medicine:

Biblical Inspiration for Life
 

Founded by Author Yvette Salinas, "Faith Leads the Way".

We have open arms to those longing for a space to express their faith and love of Christ

as they manage, navigate and cope with chronic illnesses.

Jesus heals.

 

We boldly encourage you to ask for prayer and support. We're a faith based community that is a part of Juicy Fruits Ministry. We offer support filled with love, hope, and resources for chronically ill  patients whether they are families or individuals, caregivers and friends.

Come and be a part of this thriving and hope-filled community.

Only love. All God and Jesus leading us. No bullying or discrimination accepted.

Touching Lives at Spiritual Medicine

Our Community

Purpose and Culture

Welcome to Spiritual Medicine! We're so happy you found us on the worldwide internet, aka Google. Our name sounded curious to you. Yes, we are a hybrid group offering a faith and support based approach. We see God's word as "medicine." However, we want everyone to take and follow the advice and care of your medical teams. Take your medicine! We are a  part of a nonprofit and peer-based support community that gives non-medical advice. You can take a breath and freely share your faith, experiences, and vulnerabilities, or listen and more in our virtual Zoom support groups or on our private FaceBook.

Our program, Spiritual Medicine, is a part of Juicy Fruits Ministry, Yvette's private family nonprofit, which has been giving back and supporting people since 2000. Please scroll through our space for help, encouragement, and an inviting sense of knowing that you are supported as a person diagnosed along with caregivers, care partners, or caretakers. We are here for anyone on their healing journey. We offer prayer and praise, essential need grants called Acts of Love Award from private donations, resources, and friendship. If you'd like to donate or volunteer, we need you. Keep scrolling. Click the button to connect.

Watch a Glimpse of Gratitude of Praise

Gratitude of Praise

Why Praise Matters

 “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord”

(Psalm 150:6)

 

Bless the Lord, oh my soul and all that is within me,

bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and

forget not all His benefits. (Psalm 103:1-2)

We offer the sacrifice of praise, gratitude, testimonies as  worship in this support space . This is a time to gather and share what we're grateful for in our lives.

We recognize and thank God, our lives, and those

who impact our lives.

It is hard to be grateful or feel like praising God when you are going through so much pain, disappointment, devastation, and loss?

Let's be honest. We are human.

To lift the heaviness we praise, we acknowledge

God's wonder and surrender to Him.

It isn't always easy, yet He's with us.

 

"Praise ye The Lord. All I want to do is praise ye The Lord. You've been so good to me so I praise ye the Lord and lift you up and praise your name."  Partial chorus in Praise Ye the Lord by Leon Patillo.

Spiritual Medicine gives you a variety of ways you can feel comfortable to express yourself without limitations.

Prayer

Prayer Request

prayer hands

    "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there I am in the midst of them". Matthew 18:20

God calls us to have the heart of a child with reliance, trust and unlimited faith in Him. We at Spiritual Medicine are here to unite in intercessory prayer with you based on your prayer requests. Prayer is intimate, powerful and our love language of talking to God.

The Bible is filled with numerous types of prayers. However, the unifying thread in prayer is coming to God through Jesus Christ, affirming our spiritual practice, and seeking God's presence, thanksgiving, love, petitions, reflection, sanctification and more. 

We will partner with you in confidential prayer. We'd also like to rejoice with you in praise as God answers. 

 

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” — Matthew 11:28

Please note we know God is the Great Physician.

In the Garden of Eden He conducted the first surgery, removing a rib from Adam to form Eve. Luke, the physician and companion to Paul wrote both the Gospel of Luke

and the book of Acts. God uses our medical doctors, nurses, and specialist to bring healing treatments to our lives.

We encourage you to always seek medical care and follow the advice of your doctors. Prayer is a spiritual tool, but not a substitute for medical treatment. We are not professionals.

Liz's vulnerability to share her experience with seizures resulting from brain cancer

in a blog offers support and hope to help others is shared here listen in.

Spiritual Medicine like Liz is reimagining what support groups are today.

As we fight illnesses please email us or come to our groups for support that matters.

We are walking this path together at Spiritual Medicine.

We want you to know we are here for you & yours.
