Distilled water vs Alkaline while fasting....

I began my 50 day water fast on yesterday. I am fasting primarily for religious reasons and spiritual growth, and secondarily for health reasons. My regimen consists of a morning and evening warm water enema, and drinking alkaline water (pH 9-10).
My background: I have tried to complete this fast for many, many, many, many (you get the point...) months now, but was unable to make it past 28 days due to extreme weakness. What I learned through my trials and failures is that drinking distilled water and inconsistent enemas where hindering my progress. As a result of fasting on distilled water, I suffered from extreme weakness even to the point that I felt as if my bones were getting brittle. After my many fasting attempts on distilled water (which I have come to learn is highly acidic) I ended up with a pH around 6.5 and several sicknesses which I didn't have before starting my fasts, including bouts of extreme fatigue. I have tried to increase my pH through an alkaline diet and calcium supplements to no avail. My hope is that through a long term fast on alkaline water I can normalize my pH, and improve my overall health.
So far things are going very well. Last night I slept through the night, and felt well rested when I got up this morning. My energy level is strong. For a comparison - if my normal energy level (on a good day) when eating is say 10, my energy level currently is around 8; but in comparison it plummeted to around 3-5 when I was fasting on distilled water. Thus, I am really encouraged that I'll have the energy to make it through this fast, and also be able to recover from the illnesses created by previous fasts.
In regards to the soulish or mental battles that I face when fasting - I've been struggling a bit today. Yesterday my will and resolve was strong (of course, right). Today, I feel like throwing a pity party about my life and current health problems, and just throwing in the towel. Well, these are the ups & downs that we fasters sometimes go through, and like David (from the Bible) you have to get to a point in life where you encourage yourself!!
This evening I'll probably go for a walk. I think the air will do me good...
Goodbye for now---
