The wick effect is the name given to the partial destruction of a human body by fire, when the clothing of the victim soaks up melted human fat and acts like the wick of a candle. The wick effect is a phenomenon that has been proven to occur under certain conditions, and thoroughly observed. It is one commonly offered explanation for the alleged phenomenon of spontaneous human combustion (SHC).
I don't see the value of making stuff up, especially if its not going to pay off financially.
Jasmuheen (born Ellen Greve) was probably the most famous advocate of breatharianism during the 1990s. She claimed "I can go for months and months without having anything at all other than a cup of tea. My body runs on a different kind of nourishment." Several interviewers found her house full of food, but she claimed the food was for her husband.Jasmuheen was awarded the Bent Spoon Award by Australian Skeptics in 2000 ("presented to the perpetrator of the most preposterous piece of paranormal or pseudoscientific piffle"). She also won the 2000 Ig Nobel Prize for Literature for Living on Light. Jasmuheen claims that their beliefs are based on the writings and "more recent channelled material" of the Count of St Germain. She claims that her DNA has expanded from 2 to 12 strands, to "absorb more hydrogen". When offered $30,000 to prove her claim with a blood test, she said that she didn't understand the relevance
enough to keep the ignorant in our society fascinated, amazed, wondering, or questioning scientific "authority", as it were.
Eatsrainbows you are assuming a lot! I see no way this could cure anything.
I can focus my attention to forcing cysts or whatever else inside that should not be there out.
Science hasn't discovered everything so maybe you need to open your mind rather than jumped to the automatic conclusion that this cannot happen in someone.
I can expel things from my body too. Would anyone like to see some pics?

Bored chemist you just need a new job. Something that really excites you. If science is such a bore look elsewhere. Science should be exciting and new things looked at as an adventure.
