Audra Bear, 25, from Minneapolis, says a lifelong interest in health and healing has led her to try bizarre practices; & # 39; prana & # 39; and & # 39; breatharianism & # 39 ;.

She says that & # 39; prana & # 39; energy means that people inhale both air and prana as they breathe. Respirators say they are fed by air and do not need solid food.

Bear says her new daily 40-minute breathing rituals have left her to not get her energy from healthy meals, but mostly from smoothies, teas and juices.

A leading nutritionist has identified the practices as possible & # 39; harmful & # 39; labeled and said there is no scientific evidence that breathing provides essential nutrients.

Bear was vegan and raw vegan for four years before she & # 39; pranic & # 39; eight months ago life and & # 39; breatharianism & # 39; discovered.

She says that fasting and breathing & # 39; to receive energy and nutrition & # 39; helped her to become healthier. Her longest fasting – of 97 days – saw her getting essential calories from pureed fruits and vegetables. Back on solid food & # 39; occasionally & # 39 ;, Audra practices breathwork anywhere between one and three hours a day.

She says she only uses good meals when she's out with her family and friends. Since she adopted the pranic lifestyle, she says she has more energy than ever before and she feels more relaxed about life.

Bear explains: & # 39; Prana is another word for energy, also known as Qi or Chi. It is a life-giving force that flows in, through and around all things, it is in the air that we breathe, the sunshine, nature, connections with people and all living things. It is a powerful energy that actually has the capacity to nourish and support us as humans. & # 39;

& # 39; There is no scientific evidence that breathing provides essential nutrients & # 39;

Nutrition Scientist Helena Gibson-Moore told Femail that relying on a food group – such as the fruits and vegetables that Audra consumes in smoothies and juices – denies her body the nutrients it needs.

Gibson-Moore explained: & # 39; Everyone needs energy (calories) to make our bodies function properly. There is no scientific evidence that we can only extract the essential nutrients needed for good health from the air.

Eating only one food group, in the case of Audra, fruits and vegetables, could potentially be & # 39; harmful & # 39; says nutrition scientist Helena Gibson-Moore

& # 39; A diet that only contains fruit juices and tea is probably low on energy, but although weight loss may initially occur, you will miss important nutrients for good health in the long term.

# By consuming only one food group such as fruit and vegetables, in a specific way such as juice, without balancing it with other food groups, it is not healthy and can be harmful if it gets used over time to maintain.

Hoewel Although evidence of such diets in terms of disease prevention is lacking, there is a wealth of evidence that varied and balanced dietary patterns including fruits and vegetables, whole grain, good sources of protein such as fatty fish, legumes and nuts, some dairy or dairy alternatives, some unsaturated fats and lower intake of fat processed meat, refined grains, salt, saturated fat and sugary foods and beverages are associated with better health outcomes. & # 39;

& # 39; Living in a pranic lifestyle is about shifting your focus from nourishing your body with denser sources (food) to less dense sources (energy), while taking into account that eating isn't bad, you can enjoy food if you want. & # 39;

She says she had heard about people living this way, but I never thought I would be.

Bear adds: & # 39; It started with the practice of breathwork. There is something magical about conscious, controlled breathing that brings you with a face to face encounter with yourself, it brings you back to the core of your being.

& # 39; Breathwork helps you realize who you are and what you need or don't need. I never intended to & # 39; stop eating & # 39 ;. I just started exercising 40 minutes a day and after about five days I was no longer hungry for heavy food. My first fast lasted 97 days. & # 39;

The 25-year-old, who says she has lost more than one stone since practicing the lifestyle, says: & I would recommend anyone to fast, clean or limit without first knowing the breathing . You can also experience Prana over time in nature, sunbathing, grounding, creating and playing.

& # 39; You can eat if you want, for entertainment or social institutions, know that your energy comes from the life force all around you. Most days I just drink tea, fruit juices, green juices and fresh coconut water. I do eat now and then, but more for festive reasons. & # 39;

& # 39; My energy has been increased, my senses are stronger and I feel the healthiest I have ever been. I feel relaxed about life and a deeper connection with myself. & # 39;

However, nutrition researcher Helena Gibson-Moore has criticized Audra's diet by saying: & # 39; A diet that only contains fruit juices and teas is probably low on energy, although weight loss may occur initially, but in the long run you miss important nutrients for good health. & # 39;

She added: & # 39; By consuming only one food group such as fruit and vegetables, in a specific way such as juice, without balancing it with other food groups, it is not healthy and can be harmful if it is in the maintained over time.

Audra claims she doesn't feel like she's leaving without saying: & # 39; This is not about limitation or lack of life. Living this way is a big step away from a traditional life, but the lifestyle also brings so much abundance, health and happiness. That is where my focus will always be. & # 39;
