I wish you had too, then you would have realized it's all in your head and you wouldn't have posted this nonsense here, potentially encouraging some hapless internet fool to try something similar to this and die because their liver shuts down.
Distilled water, which is the best for flushing out toxins.
Of course, "toxins", the mantra of the new age idiot. Exactly what "toxins" were you flushing out with distilled water? None. Your liver filters out toxins, nimrod, not water. By depriving you body of essential nutrients you made your liver's job more difficult. I would wager even money that if you had taken an actual "toxin" blood test before and after your fast the level would have risen considerably.
You have to understand how much energy the body uses for the digestion process. If you stop eating and let your digestive system shut down (after around 78 hours or so) your body now has this extra allotment of energy it can use towards things other than breaking down food and assimilating nutrients.
This is the biological equivalent of the perpetual motion machine. Your body doesn't have an "extra allotment of energy" after you fast because you aren't consuming any additional fuel. You can't seriously believe this drivel, can you?
The body is working at maximum efficiency
What does this even mean?
and scours for dead and damaged tissues, and this was particularly true for my skin. Red marks faded, and a chicken pock scar I had on my ear since I was 6 has diminished in size.
Liar, liar, pants on fire. IF, and that's a big if, a scar on your ear diminished in size it's probably because your skin shrunk having been denied proper nutrition.
And are you saying my body wasn't healing naturally while fasting? Fasting is probably the purest way of letting your body do just that.
Yes, that is exactly what I'm saying.
You cited the source "Fasting and Sun-Bathing for Healing Disease". Again, "FASTING AND SUN-BATHING FOR HEALING DISEASE
". Do you not see the problem with your source?

Look, don't misunderstand me, I'm not suggesting you have to stuff your face full of food everyday and the human body can survive all kinds of traumatic experiences and recover. But your suggestion that not eating for 20 days is in any way physically beneficial is ludicrous.
