Oh not me! Heck no! But there's a raw food coach out there who already juice fasted for over a year who is now dry fasting for a whole week. I can't wrap my mind around that. My native American friend dry fasted for three days for her religion. I wouldn't even recommend that of course, but what on earth do you think of doing it for a whole week?
Once again I'm so grateful that I found the 30bad lifestyle and the sense of abundance that I have always craved!
I just laughed to myself, thinking the Peace Keepers would see that title and sigh.....and think, "Oh great! We gotta talk some wingnut out of killing themselves!" ha ha ha (I'm very self-entertaining!)
Stupid people are stupid....
Dry fasting for an entire freaken week?! That is very dangerous...
I get the impression when I go over to raw food talk that this woman is pretty much permanently fasting and has been for years. I'm NOT kidding.
Lmao might as well become a breatharian haha xP these kind of people must be either on drugs or not doing what they are saying they do, otherwise they would be in the hospital or in bed, not giving talks and acting like normal people.
What a kook! I've never even heard of dry fasting, oh wait maybe there getting enough water from all the moisture in the air..
Would it be the kidneys that get trashed during this?
It can also harm your heart, leading to fatal arrhythmias. It can be VERY unhealthy - leading to a starvation situation with multiple organ failure and muscle breakdown. It could harm way more than just the kidneys.
I could be wrong, but I feel like there is no scientific evidence to back up a "dry fast", if anything, the evidence suggests that fasting for more than 3 days can be detrimental to your overall well being. I've personally never heard of such a description. Before the Buddha became enlightened, he believed that being ascetic was critical to "achieving" enlightenment but came to understand during meditation that this in fact wasn't the case. Balance is the key.
Phooey! We got all excited over nothing, Jon ;(
Even water fasting is a serious undertaking, and must be under quality supervision. I've heard that one person required interventionary care after just two days, and that was on water. Dry is exponentially more dangerous and never something we would endorse.
I don't see the point of dry fasting, let alone for a week...
