And there is no other simple medicine or method (other than prolonged fasting) that could help a practitioner enter the process of prolonged fasting.

So, after drinking a couple of glasses of water, the following exercises are performed (8 times). Exercises are available to most people:
1. Tadasana (variation of the Mount pose with intense stretching of arms up):
