When I found the pictures of this particular woman on wikipedia, I wanted to know what medical condition would require not one, not two, but three forty day water fasts to accomplish. I also wanted to know which doctor put her on this extreme regime.
Turns out, she did it to herself. Which brings up a very big question. What kind of God would require that she starve herself for 120 days? I don’t recall that requirement anywhere in any bible I’ve ever read.
I have patients who have done this to themselves. But at least they acknowledged they had an eating disorder and sought help.
