I’ve recently heard about water fasting and its benefits... have you tried it before? It seems really cool! I’d love to try it someday!

I feel it wouldn’t be safe for equestrians - especially in my climate. We are in the sun for hours at a time. I think it could definitely be a useful tool on your off days.
It’s a type of fasting where you only consume water. It can have many different health benefits and people say that it is also a great thing to do for your mental health!
What is it?
I’ve never tried it, but I’ve heard it could have benefits for different health problems, like joint pain. However it shouldn’t be done without medical supervision and the re feeding process is apparently quite long.
