Then our Buchinger Fasting is the right experience for you in order to reconnect to yourself!
Fasting was, is and always will be an exotic way of nutrition or non-nutrition. Since thousands of years fasting counts in various religions into a ritual cleaning of body, mind and soul.
Within our affluent society full of luxury and overindulge, fasting became modern again as a counter movement of voluntary abstinence and to support our self-healing capabilities.
During this one week course, you will learn and apply the base of the Buchinger Fasting practice, which is a German Fasting method based on liquids such as herbal teas, water, vegetable juices and vegetable broth.
Learn more about the different ways of fasting from your Holistic Health Coach Daniela at Lettuce Bloom and get accompanied along your way.
After the course you will...
...be proud of yourself to have granted some attention to your body, mind and soul.
...have a new relationship to food.
...know that you can survive without eating for days or even weeks.
...be able to listen more to your body.
...taste more, as your gustative nerves had been reset.
...have relaxed and become more mindful of your environment.
...have learned plenty of new things and will be re motivated.
...have met great new people that might have a similar mindset to accompany your new way of life.
Who wants to stay strong, healthy and young and want to extend his life time, should be moderate in everything, breathe pure air, do daily skin care and physical exercise, keep your head cold, your feet warm and cure a small ailment with fasting rather than medicine.
- Hippokrates von Kos (460 – 370 v.Chr.) -

Thank you Daniela
What an experience to have fasted for 5 days! I succeeded and it makes me feel great! Thank you Daniela for your daily support and advices. Accessible 24/7 I felt very comfortable and supported. In addition to the help given during the preparation of the fasting and the resumption of nutrition, we met during the 5 days of fasting for: walking, meditation, yoga, ... This without forgetting the recipe cards that I can't wait to put into practice! Simply wonderful!
I highly recommend Daniela for her cooking classes but also for her supervision during a fasting course. I had the opportunity to practice these two activities with her and I am very satisfied. The recipes are delicious and healthy and Daniela also gives us some good tips. As for the 5-day fast, it is a very enriching and energizing experience. Daniela's reassuring and benevolent accompaniment was great and I thank her.
