Yoga instructor who hasn’t drunk water in a year talks about the benefits of “dry fasting”


Partik, a yoga teacher in Bali, hasn’t drunk water for a year. The 35-year-old is following the dry fasting method which she says has rejuvenated her health. She started the diet a year ago and says drinking water cured her joint pain, swollen eyes, allergies and digestive issues. Patrik fasts up to 14 hours a day and the only liquid she drinks is “living water”, the liquid extracts of fruits, vegetables, juice and coconut water.

Partik claimed she felt better and energized

Partik said doctors recommended that there be nothing with her and that if she wanted to get rid of the swollen eyes, she could have surgery. She added that a friend who had tried dry fasting suggested it and she thought about giving it a try. She later claimed that her pockets started to improve just days after starting the dry fast. She added that she felt better and more energetic and said it was also good for the kidneys.

Partik said she researched the diet and it worked best once they took a break for a few hours. She admitted that the first few days would be difficult as her mouth would often get dry and there would be a constant urge to drink water. She says it’s a little hard at first but then it’s very practical.
