Daniel Fast – Healing Benefits


by Susan Gregory

 

While most people enter into the Daniel Fast for spiritual purposes, others turn to the dietary guidelines of the Daniel Fast to improve their health. Many can attest to the healing benefits of the Daniel Fast. Our bodies seem to flourish when they are well watered and well fed! Go figure!

Health care providers find that by initially concentrating on improving a person’s physical, spiritual and emotional health, beneficial side-effects occur automatically. Side-effects such as weight loss and the disappearance of negative symptoms of ill health.

The well-documented benefits of the Daniel Fast include:

  • Body – detoxified
  • Bloating (intestinal) – gone
  • Blood Pressure – improved
  • Concentration – enhanced
  • Cholesterol – lowered
  • Cravings (sugar, refined carbohydrates & savory) – overcome
  • Depression – lessened
  • Diabetes – improved
  • Energy level – better
  • Excessive night-time urination – disappeared
  • Fertility – increased
  • Fluid retention – gone
  • Food allergies and addictions – recognized and overcome
  • Good health – renewed and maintained
  • Hair and nail strength – improved
  • Headaches – disappeared
  • Hot flushes – disappeared
  • Hypoglycemia – improved
  • Immunity to recurring illness – strengthened
  • Insomnia – disappeared
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome and stomach complaints -disappeared
  • Menstrual problems and PMS – disappeared
  • Mind – clearer and sharper
  • Negative health symptoms – reversed
  • Organs and tissues – stimulated into proper function
  • Overeating – overcome
  • Recovery from illness and drug treatments – assisted
  • Reflux and indigestion – disappeared
  • Skin problems (eczema, acne, and dermatitis) – improved
  • Spirituality – enhanced
  • Stamina – increased
  • Sugar cravings – overcome
  • Tiredness – disappeared
  • Weight loss – accomplished

The Daniel Fast also serves as a means for getting the body “back in order” and not so controlled by the whims of emotional eating, cravings and plain old ordinary bad eating choices! The digestive system works more efficiently, the liver is not so over-taxed, and the rest of the body receives the nutrients that cause it to thrive.

So while the Daniel Fast is primarily a spiritual exercise for the spirit and soul, the body gains great benefits. Remember, we are a spirit, we have a soul, and we live in a body. So the Daniel Fast is a great tool to address every part of who we are!
