How to Do a Daniel Fast

Being 100% Gluten Free – The Secrets to Living Healthy

In this video I'm going to talk about the Daniel Diet and how to do a Daniel Fast. The Daniel Diet is taken from the bible and helps you experience a break-through in your body, mind, and spirit.

The three things you must do in a Daniel fast right are:

1) Change your diet and consume a pulse (vegetables, seeds, nuts, fruits, and whole grains) for 10-21 days. However, I'd like you to stay away from gluten in your grains and consume sprouted grains instead. Also consume 8-10 glasses of water.

2) Spend time with God, 3 times a day for 5 minutes

3) Make every day a masterpiece by pursuing excellence in the work place

Honor God with your body by doing a Daniel Fast. You can learn more about a Daniel Fast on my website here:

Is Cranberry Juice Good for You?

Being 100% Gluten Free – The Secrets to Living Healthy

The benefits of Cranberry juice can be amazing if you buy the right type of cranberry juice.
In this video, i am going to talk to you about the many benefits of cranberry juice and what types you should take as well as what types to stay away from.

Cranberries are great for your health and they have 5x more antioxidants than spinach and 5x more than most other fruits! It also has antimicrobial properties so you can use cranberry juice as a natural treatment for infections such as a urinary tract infection. For treatment, I have patients get off of all sugar and just take cranberry extract or juice along with vegetables for several days to eliminate the infection.

Benefits of Cranberries:

1) Cleanse your urinary tract and help treat a urinary tract infection

2) Powerful cancer fighter due to antioxidants

3) Support kidneys and bladder to help your body better deal with stress

4) Nourishes liver and supports in detoxification

The types of cranberry juice to stay away from are any juices with added sugar. Ideally, it is best to juice cranberries yourself or buy straight cranberry juice that is unpasteurized or low temperature pressed.

I have some great cranberry recipes on my website at to use year round and take your health to the next level!
