Daniel Fast for Health


Fasting For Spiritual Breakthrough Lesson 8: The Daniel Fast Elmer Towns
Daniel 1: 12 – 20

Diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and cancer are just a few of a growing number of health conditions becoming more common in our society today which remain rare in more primitive cultures. Many doctors identify our unhealthy lifestyles as an important contributing factor in the development of these conditions. Some have used fasting as part of the treatment process for these conditions and experienced some degree of success in correcting these problems.

This increasingly common medical practice (fasting) is not like the test proposed by Daniel in Babylon. The Daniel Fast might be viewed as a restricted diet that eliminated fats and cholesterol while increasing fibre. The result then as now with such a diet was improved health. In this chapter, we will examine the Daniel Fast more closely to understand some of the health benefits associated with fasting.

While fasting may promote better health for many, people with a significant medical condition should consult their personal physician prior to beginning a fast. A peanut butter sandwich may be viewed as an effective way to give children the fibre and proteins they need for their growing bodies, but the same meal given to someone allergic to peanuts could result in death. Specific questions about how your body might respond to a change in your diet should be discussed with your health professional.

Daniel Fast or Daniel’s Diet

I love the Daniel fast. There is much information on DanielFast.wordpress.com. I like to combine it with the 8-8-8 diet. Eat food from noon-8:00 p.m. Drink only water from 8:00 p.m.-4:00 a.m. and eat only fruit from 4 a.m. – 12 noon. Of course water is fine any time. Grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, dried fruits, lots of beans are all the things to eat on the Daniel fast. Popcorn is allowed and olive or canola oil plus any herbs and spices. It can be quite filling and satisfying.
