Dr. Otto Buchinger, a German philosopher and physician, was convinced that “When the body fasts, the soul starves”. He believed that the instinctive desire for self-awareness and inner reflection triggered by fasting also supports the healing process at a physical, spiritual and emotional level.
Buchinger Wilhelmi supports you around the clock during your fast with medical care in relaxed surroundings. The clinic combines the best of Western medicine, ancient Far-Eastern naturopathy and the latest scientific findings.
You will be accompanied at all times by experts – doctors, nurses, therapists and medical staff with a holistic training.
„Fasting means going without food voluntarily for a limited period of time. It strengthens the immune system and activates the body’s self-healing powers. Fasting under medical supervision can help to combat a number of chronic diseases and give you a new lease of life. “
