Before the start of their therapeutic fasting retreat, our guests have various reasons and goals as to why they decide to abstain from food and drink for a while. These reasons can be therapy, prevention or the wish to achieve a more conscious body awareness.
Therapeutic fasting works in multiple dimensions, it affects more than just our organs and works on a medical, spiritual and psychosocial level. This way metabolic disorders such as diabetes, gout and excess weight or cardiovascular diseases such as high blood pressure and migraine can be treated. BUCHINGER fasting stimulates the metabolism and the body gets rid of harmful substances.
In a fast-moving world, a therapeutic fasting retreat means coming to a measured standstill. At the BUCHINGER clinic, our guests learn to see their body in new ways, learning to be more aware of their body and listening to it. In addition to the medical benefits, BUCHINGER fasting has other positive effects: Therapeutic fasting increases the release of endorphins and reduces inflammation resulting in less pain. Concentration is sharpened, energy levels are increased, the overall mood is lifted.
Therapeutic fasting helps to form a lasting understanding of a healthy diet and encourages us to reconsider what we consume. Ultimately, a holistic cleanse is taking place. BUCHINGER fasting means the healing journey to yourself – at all times supported by our team of doctors, therapists and psychologists.
