Introduction

Hello, everyone this is Stephen Strang and welcome to this edition of In-Depth with Stephen Strang. My very first guest is my good friend, a longtime friend, Damon Davis, who I had the privilege of publishing his book. We just finished an interview with my new book, Trump Aftershock. I asked him, could I do a podcast with him about his book called God Cures. This is a fascinating book. What I want to do is to go in depth about your story, which is in this book, God Cures. To come here to your studio in Atlanta, it's huge. You have a very impressive staff, you're just the picture of success, even dress for success, and nobody would ever think that you are in so much trouble, really. Your book goes into this. It talks about how Hippocrates said let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food. You learned that. Just tell me a little bit about your story about how you got into this horrible shape.

 

Damon Davis: The subtitle of my book God Cures is 21 Days to Look Good, Live Great and Love Well. I would encourage anybody who gets their hands on it to get ready for the greatest journey of their life. Truly the testimonials that we are receiving from so many people worldwide is that, in 21 days, they are seeing tremendous results in energy levels, clarity of thought, diminishing inflammation in the body which is so big. People's blood sugar levels are becoming balanced. I don't know that I intentionally set out for this to be a benefit, but people are dropping weight like you wouldn't believe. They are detoxing. Their skin is looking better. But beyond all of the benefits physically, the book sets out to get people aligned in their spirits and their souls. My story, you look at me and you would say, there's no way this guy is sick or was sick. But here's what people don't know and I profile it in the book. I actually died 12 times before I was 25.

 

Damon Davis Bio

Stephen Strang: How's that possible?

 

Damon Davis: Three generations of men in my family; my father, who had a heart transplant, he died of cancer, but had a heart transplant in his early years. My father passed away at 58 years old. His father at 57 or 58 of heart disease. His father before him, we're talking multiple generations of men who died from disease, broken down hearts, if you will, before they hit 60 years old. In my early days, I was diagnosed with what is called super ventricular tachycardia.  I can't spell it and it’s hard to pronounce it. It's basically a souped up word for very fast heart rate.  The Reader’s Digest version of that story, if you will, is that my heart would shoot to 250 to 270 beats a minute sitting still. Your heart can't go that fast without collapsing. That's what they were afraid of. Well, here's the process. My heart would shoot off without any warning. We would have to call 911 because my heart wouldn't stop on its own. The paramedics would come and they would inject me with a drug called identicard, which is basically nicknamed the death drug. Because what identicard does is it literally flatlines your heart. So, they would come and it was either the paddles or it was identichord. I prefer the paddleI prefer to be shocked versus an injection because the injection, as those of us who have lived through it is described like this. I felt a heat sensation rush the mind body and my eyes would go dark, lights were out. I tell you that even the paramedics weren't sure if there might be a time that I wouldn't come back. That happened before I was of the age 25, 27 years old.

Stephen Strang: What was causing that?

 

Damon Davis: Something that occurred at birth, a defect in my heart, a dual sinus node, where your heart is like a pinket game, where you dropped a little pebble at the top and then it resets. Blood cycles to the heart and it goes through, boom, boom, boom. It's like a pinket game that resets, it cycles. Mine was not resetting. It continued to cycle faster, faster, faster, until ultimately I would have to call 911. But that wasn't the real tragedy of my life. The tragedy of my life was being a child in a divorced home. My mother remarried and the man that she remarried, was an abuser physically. I was in the home of a drunk who would beat me literally every day in the boiler room of our house.

 

Stephen Strang: And your mother didn't stop it?

 

Damon Davis: She worked. She did not know. It wasn't until my grandparents found the welts on my legs and scabs from bleeding that my grandparents rescued me from my home. But that wasn't without a series of … I'm going to use your book, Trump Aftershock. I'm gonna use the aftershock term here to describe what was a core set from my life of struggle and tragedy and bewilderment and fear and low self-esteem and a whole host of things from very young. That science now tells us all of the struggle and the strain and the chaos and disruptions of our life; the emotion that many of us don't know how to manage or work our way through, to include leading up to the horrible, horrible experience of dying 12 times before the age of 25, 27 years old. What it will do to something called gene expression. In the scientific and medical community, it's called epigenetics. It is the term to describe why, when you go see a doctor, and they asked you if you have some condition, who else before you had this condition? What's your medical history? What did your mom have? Did your dad have it? Did your grandparents have it? Because what they have determined is that when the Bible talks about that God knew us before we were born, and he wrote into us, try you men a great destiny and a purpose. Scientifically, what is written into the cells and into the genes, which are part of a thread called DNA, is disease and traces of disease that become expressed in your life because of what I described in the book, which is a life misaligned, spirit and soul out of whack … the struggle and the chaos of life that will take its toll on you and that will cause what medical science tells us now is gene expression, which is where all of the sickness and disease that many of us face in this life is derived from. I profile in my book what causes man to become sick, but also what I went on a 10-year journey to find, and that is what can help a man get well. That's what I talked about the book.

 

Stephen Strang: How exactly did you die was it when they gave you this this drug that you're describing?

 

Damon Davis; They give you a shot and basically it flat lines the heart. Your heart works off electrical current. This current blocker, if you will, causes the heart stop beating. Then the heart should, through electrical impulses start beating again. But that wasn't the worst of my medical conditions that I faced. I went to the Congo with Dikembe Mutombo. That brings us full circle to what the book is really about in terms of what health issue did I walk through. And for the listeners who don't know, he was a great, great basketball player from the Congo, came to United States and became a basketball player and said, if I get to the top, I will not forget to send the elevator back down. So, he did. He took monies that he made in professional basketball and he went back to the Congo. He built the first modern hospital in 40 years in Kinshasa. I went there, I profiled it, I saw the conditions of the country. I came back and I woke up one morning back in my bed in the comfy United States and I couldn't get out of bed. I couldn't shut my hands. I had a low-grade fever and my whole body ached. I got to the floor. It felt like I was walking on glass, and that led me to a doctor. The doctor told me that I had an aggressive autoimmune disease that was incurable. They put me on methotrexate, which is cancer drug, the day I was in the doctor's office. I went home and after a couple of days being depressed, I pulled out a journal and I wrote on the front of the journal composition notebook, surviving with RA. I read all of the stories of what happens when someone has a very aggressive autoimmune disease, that I could very well be in a wheelchair in a couple of years; that I would see the deformity in my hands, that I would basically have to now live a new normal.

 

Stephen Strang: Is this something you picked up in the Congo?

 

Damon Davis: No one knows where we get certain types of autoimmune diseases. Nobody knows what the cure is. We as believers pray for healing.

 

Stephen Strang: In fact, you deal with that in the book, the difference between healing and cure and you tell about a very pivotal church service that you were at. So, kind of tell in the context of your book what that story was.

 

Damon Davis: We get sick and we all do the same thing. We fight it, we ignore it, symptoms come ultimately and we break down go to the doctor and the cycle starts. They chase to give you a diagnosis; lots of poking and prodding and blood work. Then hopefully you get a name and they put you on medication. Then you go back to life, but it's usually a modified version of what life is supposed to be. God created us to live this amazing life with destiny and purpose. I believe there's a strategy of the enemy to keep us from ever accomplishing or experiencing what God put in us to see unleashed in the world. So, when you get sick, you'll immediately start crying out to God. You start saying you're going to do all of these things, right? You wonder if you're being cursed, you wonder if you brought it upon yourself and you make all kinds of promises and you end up at some altar somewhere asking God to heal you. I'm like so many people that have been there.

 

Stephen Strang: So, what's the difference between healing and curing?

 

Damon Davis: As I would find in Chicago with Greg Dickow when he put his hands on me and prayed for me, and I claimed healing, I walked away. The symptoms were gone. I went back to the doctor in Jacksonville, Florida. They did blood work and they couldn't find anything in my blood work. I was RF negative. What happened? Was I healed? I believed that I was. What happened is that everything came back like a raging flood. It came back with a fury within six months. I was worse than when I went in. I had to take off work. I do change my works habits and I put my death clothes on, if you will, I got into bed. I was depressed. I thought I had made a mistake. I thought that I'd failed God. I started to question if I was healed at all, and God took me on a journey. It would take me 10 years. I would travel across the world I would talk to scientists, physicists, profound leaders in the faith. I talked to the top rabbis in Israel. I talked to thought leaders, I talked to doctors, wellness, wholeness practitioners, integrated medicine, and conventional doctors. I went on a journey to find out what causes man to get sick and what can a man do to get well. I found it. I talk about it in the book. I profile it as the grand delusion. I'm going to be very quick and explaining this very quick. And here's why is the grand delusion. I believe, and some pastors who I've met with have shared with me that they believe I've been given an apostolic revelation on the matter of health. When man was created and placed in the garden, man was created and put in a perfect place. Someone else was observing the entire process of creation. Who was that? Satan. He can't create, but he understands how man is made. Man was created in the image of a triune God, spirit, soul and body. We were placed on this earth to operate in a certain order. Your spirit connected to the Spirit of God has governance over your soul. The spirit and the soul possess a body, the Temple of the Spirit of God. What happens when you're driving down the road in your car and your car start shimmying and shaking? We call it out of alignment. If you don't pull the car over and tend to it, something can happen. The car can fall apart. What happens when we get out of alignment? What happens when man’s spirit is no longer leading his life? What happens when the raging seed of your emotions, the soul, is in charge? What happens when we're pursuing our wants and our desires and the things that we see as necessary to fulfill this thing called life? What happens when us being out of alignment, and us struggling: divorce, bankruptcy, heartache, guilt, shame, mistakes. Make a list of the normal life that many of us have had, and all of the stress associated with it. What happens? Science tell us that something is occurring at a cellular level called gene expression, literally disease that is written into the genes. …
