The Importance of Supplements

Due to nutrient deficiencies, the generally poor quality of our diet, our exposure to environmental toxins, and a number of other factors, Dr. Hyman recommends everyone go on a basic regimen of vitamins and minerals that provide a foundation for long-term health. Even if you are completely healthy right now, he suggests you begin taking these supplements to optimize your chances of lifelong vibrant health.

What he recommends differs slightly depending on whether you are a man or a woman.

For men, he recommends a combination of 4 daily supplements:

  •          A high-potency, high-quality, highly bio available multivitamin and mineral
  •          Vitamin D3
  •          Omega-3 fatty acids
  •          Probiotics

The nutritional needs of women differ slightly, so Dr. Hyman suggests this supplementation program for women:

  •          A high-potency, high-quality, highly bio available multivitamin and mineral
  •          Calcium and magnesium
  •          Vitamin D3
  •          Omega-3 fatty acids
  •          Probiotics

“Then God said, I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.”
Genesis 1:29

21 Day Daniel Fast Blog 2014

Information based on the Daniel Plan Book/Journal by Rick Warren

Faith – Food – Fitness – Focus – Friends

Wednesday, March 26-Good Friday, April 18

So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

1 Corinthians 10:31

Resources

  •          The Word of God)/The Daniel Plan Book/Journal/Notebook/Music-(Tune In Radio App)/Web Access

Daniel, who rejected the king’s rich food in order to honor God’s best for him and his friends. Daniel was a young Israelite carried into captivity when the Babylonians invaded Israel. The Babylonian king, Nebuchadnezzar, decided to train the best and the brightest of these captives so they could be placed in positions of authority within the government.

King Nebuchadnezzar instituted a three-year training program and while they were being trained, the young captives were to be fed the same food found on the royal table. But Daniel knew this wouldn’t be a healthy diet, so he asked that he and three of his friends be allowed to eat healthier, and at the end of ten days, they looked better and were more robust than those who ate the king’s menu (Daniel 1:1-21).

Daniel’s request was not about a diet plan; rather, he understood God wanted him to live a healthy lifestyle so he could serve God no matter where he was located. Healthy living requires faith as the foundation, trusting that God’s way is the best way, while following his prescription for your health.

Friends Scripture

Day 21 Prayer Focus

Day 21 OUR COMMUNITIES – Global Communities, the World

Lord God, we and fast and pray for the world because You so loved the world that You gave Your only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16) Bless every nation and every tongue. We lift up in prayer nations in conflict and those suffering from hunger, disease, and oppression. Spread Your Kingdom throughout our world until “the kingdoms of this world become the Kingdom of our God and of His Christ” (Rev. 11:15). Support justice and cover the lost, less-fortunate, and the least from the evils of this sin-sick world.

God’s Prayer Promises: “The eyes of the Lord are in every place, Keeping watch on the evil and the good.” Proverbs 15:3; “I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go throw yourself into the sea’, and it will be done. If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” (Matthew 21:21-22)

Thank You, Lord, for hearing and answering our prayers during this season. As we have followed in the footsteps of Jesus, we have experienced great and marvelous things. We are not the same as we were when we started and for this we thank and praise Your Name! Thank You for transforming our lives individually and corporately as a body of believers! “

 

Thanks be to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever! To the One who remembered us in our low estate and freed us from our enemies; His love endures forever! Give thanks to the God of Heaven; His love endures forever!” (Psalm 136:1, 23-24, 26).

 

God’s Prayer Promise: “For no matter how many promises God has made, they are ‘Yes’ in Christ. And so through Him the ‘Amen’ is spoken to the glory of God.” (2 Corinthians 1:20) AMEN AND AMEN!
