Buchinger therapeutic fasting

Arriving at the founder's original clinic

As one of Germany’s first therapeutic fasting clinics, our establishment today is one of the nation’s most richly traditional centres of nutritional therapy, classic natural healing methods, manual therapies and complementary medicine.
By employing the BUCHINGER original method of therapeutic fasting within our holistic approach, we empower people to lead healthy, conscious and self-determined lives. We’re the fourth generation to do so, and we’ve been doing so for a hundred years.

What is BUCHINGER therapeutic fasting? Therapeutic fasting is good for your body and mind and helps with health issues such as rheumatic joint diseases and autoimmune diseases. The cost of therapeutic fasting at the clinic varies depending on the individual programme.

Our Philosophy

Empowering the body to heal itself through therapeutic fasting

Dr Verena Buchinger-Kähler, Medical Director at the BUCHINGER clinic, is the fourth generation to keep the spirit of the BUCHINGER method alive and well. Our fasting method has been shaped, moulded and developed through new research findings, but the heart of our quest has remained unchanged. We want to enable our guests to experience their bodies more consciously. Our focus is on lasting results from fasting and self-empowering our guests.
Yesterday. Today. Tomorrow.

Anamnesis

Therapeutic fasting at our clinic proceeds as follows. After a comprehensive initial physical examination (the anamnesis), we develop a treatment plan together with you according to your needs and goals. This is because we don’t strive for a universal ideal. Our approach aims instead at finding a solution for you, taking your personal situation into account. Only then do you start therapeutic fasting.

The treatment plan and preparation

You can rely on a trained team to support you during your therapeutic fasting with medical supervision. Medical support, exercise and physical activity, as well as accompanying medical therapies, will help you achieve your goals. During the pre-cleansing days, our chefs will prepare you for the fasting phase with light meals. Intestinal cleansing will then commence the therapeutic fast.

Breaking the fast and your new beginning

In BUCHINGER therapeutic fasting, you develop a nutrition plan together with one of our nutrition consultants towards the end of the fast. This is how we aim to help you to ensure the long-term success of your therapeutic fast. At the end of BUCHINGER therapeutic fasting the fast is broken –traditionally celebrated with an apple and the awarding of a fasting certificate. We will then accompany you step by step on your path to a healthy and complete diet.
