Starvation without water and food are the main methods of therapeutic starvation. If the second method is more or less clear, then the procedure without water requires some clarification. Dry fasting is a complete refusal from food and drinks.
The lack of food and also water causes increased fat splitting, which goes not only to cover the energy needs, but also to get the liquid. Moisture is one of the products of the decomposition of fat. Our body is unable to fully cope with harmful substances and excess salts, and hides some of them in fatty deposits. Destroying excess fat, we thereby get rid of a large amount of toxins. There are a number of diseases in which dry fasting can help. This is hypertension, the onset of atherosclerosis, ischemic heart disease, bronchial asthma, functional diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, and many others. Rejuvenation deserves a separate conversation.
There are contraindications to this type of procedure, like to starvation without food. It is categorically forbidden for malignant neoplasms, active tuberculosis, endocrine system diseases, hepatitis, liver cirrhosis, hepatic and renal insufficiency, etc. Even having a good health, in order not to harm yourself, you need to be careful with dry fasting.
A fashion blogger revealed her own secret of an ideal body. Let’s read her interview:
I lead a healthy lifestyle. I do not have bad habits and eat exclusively fresh and thermally unprocessed food. Every day I go in for sports: at the moment it is bikram yoga and running, and I also meditate and do spiritual practices every day. Periodically I cleanse the body: my favorite procedure is hydrocolonotherapy. I take three procedures a month. I also drink triplets to get rid of parasites, and a lot of green fresh juices that are great for detox. To cleanse the liver, I drink beets and carrots juices.

What kinds of starvation do you practice?
There are 52 weeks in a year. Every week I practice dry fasting for 36 hours. The day after dry fasting, I drink only water, the result is 52 days on water and 52 days of dry fasting every year. I have been practicing this fasting for the second year already. It all started with starvation eating coconuts and drinking plain water. I started fasting once a week and then gradually went to dry fasting. I also practiced long fasting. My maximum is a week with food, and three days without water.
How to get into and out of fasting?
You can not eat meat the day before, and you do not even have to drink water on the day you are fasting. There should be the correct input and the correct output. When you start, you can not eat or drink the next 36 hours. On the day you continue fasting, you can drink only water. The rest of the time I eat fruits and drink fresh juices. This is my diet.
What is breatharianism?
Breatharianism is when you do not eat or drink. Ideally, there should not be any contact with water at all (that means you can not even take a shower). Earlier, when I was just starting fasting, I did not do it so severely, as I spent days on starvation just like my other days. I went in for sports, worked, studied, traveled - I needed a shower. I am a very clean person and I can not afford not to go to the shower after an active day. Now I decided to do everything really as needed - without contact with water. I spend days on starvation at home, doing various household chores. On this day, I do not go out to avoid excess pollution, and do not go in for sports.
How does fasting work on the physical and mental level?
I practice fasting for cleansing at all levels (physical and mental). On the physical side, purification processes are started, the healing effect and detoxification begins. During dry fasting they are even more active than when drinking water. At the mental level, energy channels and consciousness are purified. We are more consciously begin to treat our thoughts, we begin to realize what we eat, and there are less, because we control ourselves and our thoughts. Our food becomes more conscious. I have always been interested in my consciousness. Its purification takes place in this way.
How to choose the time for fasting?
You can practice fasting, observing austerities and dedicating them to something. For example, every day of the week is responsible for a certain planet: Sunday for the Sun, Saturday for Saturn, Monday for the Moon. If we want to pull the power of a planet, we can go hungry once a week, and its influence will increase. You can also practice fasting on Ekadashi, new moon, lunar eclipse or full moon. I do just that. On such days I always starve. Sometimes both Ekadashi and New Moon cab be in a week - then I starve both days. It happens that in the week there is no full moon, no eclipse, then I just choose my day and the planet (for example, Venus).
What are the advantages of dry fasting?
At this time, the body can get rid of slag, mucus, free fats, circulating in the blood. In addition, fats are actively burned in problem areas. Various weakened and diseased cells and tumors are splitting. During fasting, a person begins to think more positively, humbly, it is easier for him to forgive offenses, to understand other people. Starvation can heal a person from any disease. Of course, this is a huge saving. 52 days a year only of breatharianism and 52 days drinking water help to save a decent amount that you can spend on yourself, and not on food.
Are there any disadvantages to starvation?
Fasting has no disadvantages, as it seems to me. It is just when people start to starve, it is very hard for them. Their head, legs, arms or something else can start hurting. All this says only that the body is very slagged and toxins leave it. That's all. This means that you need to clean, clean and clean again. At the moment I have no negative symptoms at all: no headache, no pain in arm or legs. For me, fasting day is a normal day. However, beginners can face difficulties. After all, they never skip breakfast, lunch or dinner, but they should eat nothing the whole day. If a person can not cope with this, then it means that his thoughts control his body. Of course, you need to understand why you are doing this. If you do everything consciously, then there will be no problems. I see only advantages and I am practicing dry fasting once a week.
Why is this not suitable for those who want to lose weight?
Fasting can cure people from diabetes, cancer, because all diseases are just mucks that we have absorbed into ourselves, eating all kinds of harmful foods. All this just needs to be removed from the body with starvation. I have not brought myself to such a state, so I simply starve for prevention. I do not do it for weight loss. If you want to starve to lose weight, then this is the wrong motivation. To do this, you have to go in for sports, and not starve.
