Basentage (Alkaline diet)

The Ems Vital Basentage (alkaline diet) holds the key to health and vitality. Alkaline fasting combined with a tailored naturopathic programme helps to reactivate the body’s self-healing response and has an energising effect. Specially trained fasting supervisors and therapists from Ems Vital work with clients who choose an alkaline diet plan, supporting them in small groups as they pursue a more balanced lifestyle. They are also assisted by external coaches.

Acids and alkalis are the natural product of various metabolic processes in the body. Stress, certain environmental factors and other pressures can lead to an acid-alkaline imbalance. Metabolic products which are not excreted are stored in the tissue and lead to excess acidity. An alkaline diet restores the balance between acids and alkalis.

Focus on fruit and vegetables

Following an alkaline diet means avoiding foods which foster excess acidity in the body. The experts from Ems Vital show clients how to eat an alkali-rich diet of fruit, vegetables, tea and water to neutralise excess acids. The process of detoxification is supported by additional, tailored naturopathic treatments. These are selected following on from a comprehensive Vitalcheck. A further check-up at the end of the alkaline diet provides therapists and participants with a transparent assessment of the health progress achieved.

Fitter, healthier, more productive

Excess acidity in the body can cause all sorts of symptoms and conditions, including fatigue, insomnia, muscle and joint pain, osteoarthritis, rheumatism, rheumatoid arthritis, migraines, varicose veins, cellulite, acne or neurodermatitis, coronary heart disease, hypotension or a weakened immune system. The Ems Vital Basentage (alkaline diet) serves as an intensive programme to promote health, fitness and productivity for all ages. It can also help to prevent coronaries, reduce blood sugar levels and cholesterol, and make chemotherapy for the treatment of cancer more effective. Health progress on a similarly extensive scale can usually only be seen after six months of outpatient therapy.

The Alkaline Plus plan: whole-body health

An alkaline diet is not just about cutting out acidic foods. With our Basentage (Alkaline diet) Plus package, the therapeutic fasting can be complemented by various exercise and wellness offerings along with treatments. Alternating between exercising and resting supports the objectives of alkaline fasting and ensures the holistic well-being of participants at every level.


Relaxation to vitalise body and soul

Massage has wide-ranging effects on the organism. It boosts the circulation and metabolism, strengthens the immune system, purifies and calms the soul. This makes it a perfect choice alongside alkaline fasting.


Integrating alkaline nutrition into everyday life

A change of diet gives rise to the question: what shall I cook? In cookery demonstrations, the experts at Ems Vital show the optimum way to integrate alkaline nutrition into everyday life with ease.


Equilibrium and energy from your inner centre

Yoga is a combination of gentle stretches, strengthening exercises and meditation. In connection with alkaline fasting, yoga helps participants to boost their metabolism, gain fresh energy, calm their minds and find their inner centre.

Power walking

Gentle exercise in a woodland setting

A mindful walk in the woods gives your mind a break and revitalises your body. During alkaline fasting, gentle exercise in the fresh air accompanied by a personal trainer stimulates participants’ metabolism and strengthens the immune system.  


The Ems Vital Basentage (Alkaline diet) package offers effective regeneration in a very short space of time. Just six days of intensive treatment can achieve the same health progress as six months of outpatient therapy. The alkaline diet can be done in small groups at our institute or at home.

Clients who choose the six-day Basentage (Alkaline diet) Plus package will stay at Gasthof Hense for the duration of the diet. On arrival, you will find details of your first appointment in your room, telling you when our team expect to see you at the practice.
