This combination is quite effective. In the first days, the body receives the necessary amount of water by splitting its own fats. Moreover, with dry fasting, acidotic crises (feeding at the expense of internal reserves) occurs faster: if in classical fasting after about a week, then in dry fast - on the fourth or fifth day.
The duration of mixed fasting depends on the patient’s health, but the dry period should be much shorter than the wet one. Mixed fasting can be practiced by those who already have sufficient experience of giving up food. Therefore, before trying this method, you should starve several times according to the classical scheme.
During the unloading period, when going from dry to wet starvation, the first two to four days limit the amount of water you drink (up to 10 ml per day per 1 kg of weight). In the future, it is recommended to drink only if you feel thirsty. The recovery period has no features and is carried out in the same way as in the classic version.
Like any other, mixed fasting can not be done with a cold or exacerbation of certain diseases. Contraindications include diabetes, tumors, tuberculosis, endocrine diseases, hepatitis, hepatic, renal or heart failure, inflammation and acute infections, pregnancy and nursing. Therefore, before therapeutic fasting, you should definitely consult with your doctor.
