Balanced nutrition and a full liquid diet have been proven to promote health and vitality. With its Basentage (alkaline diet) and therapeutic fasting according to Buchinger, Ems Vital offers two different types of nutritional therapy. In small groups with professional guidance, participants learn about the healing power of healthy eating.
There are various methods of therapeutic fasting, which has holistic benefits for the whole organism. Therapeutic fasting according to Buchinger is the best-known method of fasting. Named after the German doctor Otto Buchinger, it involves a diet consisting solely of water, juice, vegetable broth and honey.
After a few days, eating a liquid diet forces the metabolic system to use its reserves of nutrients. The body obtains energy from its stored carbohydrate, fat and protein, using some of this to break down toxins. A gentle exercise programme or wellness treatments can further support this process of detoxification.
Fasting makes people healthier and happier. It only takes a few days to see the positive effects on the body: people who are fasting feel fitter, fresher and more energetic. At the same time, it helps to prevent a large number of illnesses or alleviate existing conditions. Therapeutic fasting can be particularly effective at helping to prevent cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, neurodegeneration, cancer and signs of ageing.
