Yeah 30 full days sounds overboard, 3 hours (shelter) 3 days (water) 3 weeks (food).
Well unless you drink beer like the monks I guess, I believe alcohol is off the table for muslims.
I may be wrong as I am definitely not a studied man in such cases.
But 30 solid days seems too much.
I guess they could juice though.

Its very hard to not eat anything when you are surrounded by numerous amounts of shops which sell food!
But if you haven't had chemotherapy, why do you want to break down a significant portion of perfectly good white blood cells? This sounds like more of a bad thing than a good thing if you're already healthy and have a healthy immune system like me. I never fast and I seriously doubt any of you are healthier or have had less illnesses than me.
“Now, if you start with a system heavily damaged by chemotherapy or ageing, fasting cycles can generate, literally, a new immune system."
Prolonged fasting forces the body to use stores of glucose and fat but also breaks down a significant portion of white blood cells.

I really hope you can all get this in your countries, it is on the BBC iplayer:
Eat Fast and Live Longer
I tried to pull it up on YT, but it has been broken down into small excerpts.
This 60 minute documentary explores the benefits of fasting, and the pitfalls.
