So the bottom line is if you do not run out of nutritional reserves it is safe to fast and continue healing. Dr. Fuhrman is not God, although he does contribute a lot of good information. I would say that if one is taking frequent long fasts to heal, it is best to have their nutritional reserves monitored by a fasting doctor, although many choose not to do this for various reasons. That is their choice. I do believe that you are accusing people who are taking frequent long fasts for healing, to have OCD neurotic behavior when they do not have this condition. They are trying to heal their bodies. Of course, some may have the behavior, but how can one judge over the internet. The water fast board is a support forum for folks who are fasting for healing. It is not the place to judge people. I see people who take frequent long fasts very conscious of building nutritional reserves between fasts. I do not agree with Dr. Fuhrman's rule unless someone is nutritionally deficient. It would take testing on the people in question to prove it. Other fast doctors would disagree as well. I have studied the subject too. I have found no one perfect in thinking be it a fast doctor or me. I have found that even the experts disagree with one another. If people on the water fast only forum are healing their bodies by frequent long fasts, then they must be doing something right. Why should they have to obey some rule that would obviously be working against them? Moses did two forty day fasts back to back with only one meal in between. This was all for good. It's a good thing the rule was not around then or he may have broken it to follow God's leading.
