I cannot believe you fasted for 5 days! I have heard of people fasting for 24-48 hours but NEVER 5 entire days! You sure you didn' t mean 50 hours?! Anyway, I had a natural homeopathic doctor who actually cured me of gallbladder inflammation and of all my chronic pain for a while and it was partly due to the fasting regimen she had me on. I would fast once a week for 24 hours, longer if I could. I would do accupuncture, chuna (sort of like a reflexology stretch/massage act), and this machine she would strap me to that would vibrate across my body for blood flow. Fasting made a complete difference. I haven't done it in a long time but I'd like to try again.
