You can fast as long as you want, it's your body and life, I don't care.
Well said. In the end I find that very few people really do care about my health. Many of them care about them being right even at the expense of others. Ego does get in the way of sound advise sometimes. It is best for a person to do their own research and seek God for guidance. No one cares as much about my health as I do, except for God. It is the end result that I am after. It is the end result that is important. This may mean not following the ideas of an expert. I have done enough studying to know that even the experts do not agree with each other all of the time. How are we suppose to know which one is right? If a person is going to undertake a long fast and can get supervision from a trusted doctor, knowledgeable about the subject, that would be ideal. Since we do not live in an ideal world many choose to supervise themselves for various reasons. I believe they know there are risks involved, but they believe it is a risk worth taking. Not doing so is also a risk. Yes, I am indeed free to make my own decisions regarding what I feel is best for me. It is a God-given right. Thank you for your reply.
