Felke Med therapeutic fasting
“Fasting is much more than not eating anything.”
An essential component of our Felke.Med concept is therapeutic fasting as per Dr. Otto Buchinger. Combined with the further developed Felke healing method, many of our guests in recent years have used the offer to lastingly purify and revitalise their minds and bodies. You can make preventative or therapeutic use of your stay to have a positive influence on your health.
Therapeutic fasting means voluntarily forgoing solid food for a certain period of time. The human organism possesses the ability to live off its reserves for a certain period of time, and in doing so can activate its self-healing powers. In addition to the weight loss, various effects of fasting are the focus of interest today: anti-ageing, treatment of numerous chronic diseases, as well as the prevention of illness, ailments of old age like dementia, and cancer. Mentally, the fasting process has a positive effect on personal awareness, to the point of self-discovery.
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.
Indications for a preventive or therapeutic fasting are, among others:
- Order of nutrition
- Lack of exercise
- Rejection of rituals such as smoking, drinking coffee and non-rhythmic ways of life
- Normalisation of early high blood pressure
- Preventing a “burn-out”, improving stress tolerance
- Adult-onset diabetes (diabetes mellitus type 2)
- Metabolic syndrome
