"Q: "Is there ever a reason to not do water fasting?"

A(don): If your body is handicapped with any dietary nutritional insufficiencies and especially deficiencies, a water-only fast will obviously deepen the condition. And if one or more nutritional insufficiencies/deficiencies are a contributing factor to the ill-health condition you're trying to resolve, water fasting may help in some ways but hurt in others. This is where "nutritionally supported fasting" can help. This does not mean a calorically restricted diet, but a water fast done with the inclusion of "green juices" which may be nutritionally enhanced depending on the quality of the greens used. Optimally, tests for certain "problematic" nutrients should be done, and any insufficiencies/deficiencies corrected, before fasting. If fasting doesn't help, or makes matters worse, it's likely that nutritional insufficiencies were the problem, and not a malabsorption issue, which can be helped by fasting. Unfortunately, some fasting practitioners do not offer nutritionally supported fasting, and some will only if asked to."
