Fasting - the voluntary renunciation of solid food for a limited period of time, is one of the oldest naturopathic approaches - both in prevention and in therapy.
For us at the Hufeland Clinic, fasting according to Buchinger represents an excellent opportunity to stimulate our organism to a profound cleansing, renewal as well as cell and organ regeneration. The positive effects of Buchinger fasting on the entire system of our organism, as well as the associated reduction of civilization-related (often behavior-dependent) risk factors such as obesity, high blood pressure, lipometabolic disorders (cholesterol), etc., can be observed by us again and again in practical application. Subjectively, a reduced sensation of pain, better sleep, a balanced mood and thus a noticeable increase in well-being are also perceived.
In view of these without exception positive effects the topic chamfered/Heilfasten encounters in the last years - not least also in the medicine - an increasing interest. And increasingly, the biological mechanisms involved in fasting are also being scientifically investigated. In 2016, for example, the Japanese cell biologist Yoshinori Ohsumi was awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine for his work on cell autophagy. Among other things, he found out how this type of internal cell cleansing is triggered more intensively in the case of nutrient deficiency (fasting).
Fasting according to Dr. Otto Buchinger is much more than just abstaining from solid food for a certain period of time.
Here at the Hufeland Klinik, we follow a holistic approach that combines therapeutic fasting, exercise and relaxation with medical guidance. Daily lectures on various health topics are designed to help our guests lead a mindful lifestyle. Our team of doctors, therapists, nutritionists and psychologists will accompany you and ensure a special fasting experience and the achievement of your own individual, personal goals.
Our fasting guests come to us for very different motivations. Often it is curiosity to try fasting in a professional environment. Some of our guests are already fasting experienced and come to us several times a year. They have found that the reset that fasting triggers can release physical and mental blockages, the body comes back into balance. But also numerous chronic diseases, metabolic disorders or cardiovascular diseases can be treated very well with therapeutic fasting according to Dr. Buchinger. You can find more about this under the indications.
