NEWSTART is an acronym:
Nutrition- Proper nutrition is the foundation of good health and recovery. Cooking classes, meals, and cookbooks all demonstrate the variety, appeal, and satisfaction of whole plant food vegetarian cuisine. In addition people need to understand the issues that link nutrition with health or disease.
Exercise- Muscle tone and strength are lost without exertion, but exercise improves the health of body, mind, and spirit multiplying vitality and health.
Water- Because the body is 70% water, keeping well hydrated and knowing what and when to drink are essential to health. Also, hydrotherapy (water applied externally to the body) and massage enhance the circulation and immune system.
Sunlight- The sun is the established energy source ordained by God to sustain the cycle of life for plants and animals. Abundant in Florida, sufficient sunlight, but not too much, is vital for the body’s metabolism and hormonal balance.
Temperance- Using good things moderately and avoiding the bad is obviously wise, yet often hard to practice. Temperance can be neither bought nor earned, but is rather an important gift of God, a “fruit of the Spirit” (Galatians 5:22, 23). Moderation in all things is a thread woven throughout the fabric of NEWSTART® programs.
Air- The body’s most essential resource is air. More important than food or water, proper breathing and pure air are fundamental to good health.
Rest- Restoration requires rest because sleep allows the body to renew itself. Many types of rest are important for health, but the sweetest rest follows labor. “Early to bed and early to rise” is a vital NEWSTART® principle, and a healthy lifestyle makes this principle easier to maintain.
Trust in Divine Power-- Directly linked to physical health, trust in God is a gift leading to right choices. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths." (Proverbs 3:5-6).
