Healing Focus

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 Lake Constance 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. “
