Fasting Cure


Due to the optional abstinence from solid food your body switches over to „nutrition from within“. Final metabolites are mobilised and defecated. A fasting cure has an anti-inflammatory, antirheumatic, antiallergic and mentally stabilising effect. A loss of weight is most commonly a welcome side effect. The fasting cure will be customised exactly to your needs. Together with your doctor you choose the type that suits you best: juice fasting with vegetable stocks rich in minerals, freshly squeezed vegetable juices and herbal teas, or fasting according to F. X. Mayr with milk and bread rolls.

Colontherapy makes the fasting cure particularly effective. The gentle enema (large bowel) helps to excrete metabolic waste products faster. This therapy, developed by Dr. med. Erich von Weckbecker, will help to avoid or quickly allay the hungry feeling and headaches of the initial fasting phase.

Spirituality, Life Coaching & Mindfulness

During the fasting cure, many people notice increasing sensibility. A certain feeling of happiness and a creative, cheerful relaxation become noticeable. The distance from your everyday life gives you space for fundamental life questions. In a calm atmosphere it is possible to allow suppressed feelings and thoughts and to care of your inner concerns without any time pressure. Our team for spiritual counselling accompanies you during these experiences. One-on-one conversations, discussion sessions and exercises will show you new paths on how to handle important life topics and how to develop a mindful living. Meditative events and worships give you strength and ease of mind.
