What is true fasting? Maybe not what you think#Isaiah#CHaRA#faithhopelove
“Fasting, abstinence from food or drink or both for health, ritualistic, religious, or ethical purposes.
The abstention may be complete or partial, lengthy, of short duration, or intermittent.
Fasting has been promoted and practiced from antiquity worldwide
by the founders and followers of many religions,
by culturally designated individuals (e.g., hunters or candidates for initiation rites), and by individuals or groups as an expression of protest against what they believe are violations of social, ethical, or political principles.”
I am a family physician who loves to write about the HEART of HEALTH. On my blog, Watercress Words, I inform and inspire us in healthy living. My ideas come from my training, experiences, medical practice, personal life, and medicine in the media. There's always something new and interesting to explore in the world of health and medicine.
