Felke Med Detox 2.0
“In a healthy body lives a healthy spirit”
Advancement and change have been part of our philosophy for more than 100 years. With a view to the wishes and needs of our current fasters and the experience from 35 years of medical fasting support, we have developed a new, even more intensive, holistic fasting programme for you. Living conditions have changed in the last hundred years: Today we work in closes rooms; in the cities, there reigns a sustained noise level, and everyday and unconscious intake of environmental toxins via the skin, lungs and intestines. Added to that are sustained stress, a deluge of media and a lack of recreational sports. Many of these disruptive factors were not around in the time of Felke and Buchinger, which is why it's needed for us to adjust the original fasting therapy to today’s requirements.
Over the years, our capacities for detoxification are exhausted and impurity buildups accumulate. The body inadvertently stores toxins that increasingly cause symptoms. This facilitates the formation of illnesses that didn’t used to exist, and that today are necessary to prevent. Fatigue, exhaustion, depressive resentments, headaches and digestive disorders are serious warning signals by our bodies.
It's high time to authorise a time out for your mind, body and soul. As part of the detox fasting, you will intensively and sustainably free your body from these buildups and toxins (especially heavy metals). At the same time, your empty stores are filled back up.
Centuries-old Ayurvedic treatments known for removing toxins supplement the Felke medicinal clay therapy. Classic channelling therapies also support the detoxification of the tissue and skin. In the centre of the treatments, moreover, are relaxation and relieving emotional burdens. Mindfulness arises when we can let go. We’ll help you with meditations, yoga and autogenic training sessions.
The majority of our guests today make use of the preventative, short-term fasting of five days as a way to get started on a new form of diet, or to find a change to their lifestyles. In the case of chronic diseases, longer periods of fasting, often over weeks, are necessary. We distinguish between the shorter, preventative therapeutic fasting for healthy people – here, 7 - 10 days are already enough for long-lasting results. Healing therapeutic fasting requires at least 14 days for an intensive effect.
For a safe and pleasant fasting process, you will be provided with individual instructions, medical supervision and extensive consultation as part of a food coaching session. Medical presentations and fasting groups are an additional part of the offer. The Felke therapeutic fasting comprises medicinal clay treatments for a holistic, gentle detoxification, as well as exercise and relaxation programmes.
Fasting doesn’t mean starving! Components of the Felke therapeutic fasting are herbal teas,
reverse osmosis of purified water, pure vegetable essences and freshly pressed fruit and vegetable juices, as well as a mineral therapy. As a result, the need for vitamins and minerals is sufficiently covered and the detoxification process can unfold effectively.
Colon hydrotherapy offers an important contribution to your fasting process. This gentle form of intestinal care channels toxins, mucosal scalings and indigestible cell residues out of the gastrointestinal tract and encourages intestinal function. The positive effect on the organism also helps with psychological disorders, disorders of the digestive system, allergies and chronic illnesses.
