The Daniel Cure: The Daniel Fast Way to Vibrant Health. The Daniel Fast, a 21-day period of prayer and fasting inspired by the Old Testament prophet Daniel’s fasts recorded in Daniel 1 and Daniel 10, has become one of the most popular fasts in recent years.
The Daniel Fast is a modified fast in which certain foods are forbidden while others are permitted. This fast is comparable to a ‘purified’ vegan diet in that all animal products are prohibited, as are additives, preservatives, sweeteners, caffeine, alcohol, white flour, and processed foods. Individuals participating in the Daniel Fast may consume as much Daniel-Fast-friendly food as they wish. While the majority of people begin the Daniel Fast with a spiritual intention, many are astounded by the physical transformation that occurs. Many people with elevated cholesterol see their levels return to normal; those who have struggled with weight loss are suddenly able to shed pounds. The vast majority of participants who complete the Daniel Fast report increased energy and a general sense of well-being. Recent scientific studies on the Daniel Fast have confirmed these findings, in addition to demonstrating additional benefits such as decreased systemic inflammation, decreased blood pressure, and an increase in antioxidant defenses.
The Daniel Cure will assist readers in taking the next step by emphasizing the Daniel Fast’s health benefits. By following the advice in this book, readers will learn how to transform the Daniel Fast from a once-a-year spiritual discipline into a year-round way of life. In a country afflicted by an obesity epidemic and its attendant ills, The Daniel Cure may be exactly what the Great Physician ordered.
The Daniel Cure includes a 21-Day Daniel Cure Devotional, four chapters on lifestyle diseases such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and inflammation, eleven chapters on recipes and meal planning advice, a recipe index, comprehensive nutritional guidance, and an appendix on ‘The Science Behind the Daniel Fast.’
