"Prahlad Jahni, the Indian yogi who shocked the entire world two years ago when he said he did not fed for seven decades, is a true phenomenon. Recently, media in Asia announced that the ascetic passed all medical tests they have put him through and there’s no doubt: Jahni did not eat or drink any liquid for 70 years.
Hidden according to Asian media in a military hospital in India, the 82 years old yogi has been subjected to dozens of medical tests in the last year.
Closely monitored 24/7, the old Indian managed to convince doctors that he’s not an impostor, but a true miracle.
'It’s incredible. Dozens of machines kept him under close surveillance. It seems that the biological processes taking place in his body are unprecedented, never before in the history of modern medicine being recorded such anomalies.'
A man who doesn’t eat or drink for five days usually enters a coma and dies. For him is the other way around. If he would be forced to eat, food could kill him, said one of the 32 doctors who have examined him.
They are convinced that the old man is a true “fountain of cures” for many of the current diseases.
He hydrates through a hole in the palate.
The old yogi does not drink water, he hydrate by keeping water in his mouth for several minutes. According to doctors, Jahn has a hole in the palate which is essential for hydration.
"Prahlad Jani explains that he receives his nourishment from a substance that is produced from a hole in the roof of his mouth. This substance is called amrit or amrita in numerous yogic texts. Amrit is a Sanskrit word that literally means 'without death'.
More commonly amrit has been translated as the “divine nectar” or “drink of the gods”. Many advanced yogis and sun gazers also claim to have experienced the amrit substance, which is thought to be secreted by the pineal and pituitary glands when activated by advanced yoga practices."

According to a May 10th., 2010 FoxNews article,
"An Indian holy man has amazed a team of doctors by not eating or drinking anything for two weeks.
Prahlad Jani, 83, who says he has not had a bite to eat for 70 years, was put under constant surveillance to test his astonishing claims by a team of 30 military medical staff.
During a 15 day stay in a hospital in the city of Ahmedabad, India — he astounded doctors by not eating, drinking or going to the bathroom.
'We still do not know how he survives,' neurologist Sudhir Shah said at the end of the experiment. 'It is still a mystery what kind of phenomenon this is.'
The yogi was sealed in a ward for the study initiated by India's Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO).
The DRDO hopes that findings from the experiments could help soldiers survive without food and drink, assist astronauts or even save the lives of people trapped in natural disasters.
Jani returned to his village near Ambaji in northern Gujarat after leaving the hospital, where he will resume his routine of yoga and meditation.
He says he was blessed by a goddess at a young age, which gave him special powers.
During the observation, which ended last Thursday, the doctors took scans of Jani's organs, brain and blood vessels, and conducted tests on his heart, lungs and memory capacity.
'If Jani does not derive energy from food and water, he must be doing that from energy sources around him, sunlight being one,' Shah said. 'As medical practitioners, we cannot shut our eyes to possibilities, to a source of energy other than calories.' "
