A Johann Schroth fasting cure has a remedial function, activating the body´s own healing powers. The cure facilitates recovery, and is also used to prevent diseases, for example, type 2 diabetes. Schroth fasting stimulates the body´s own healing powers. The positive effect of the cure allows the body to more efficiently regulate any possible disease, finally returning to a balanced state. The body´s organs don´t have to work as hard and their function improves.
Additionally, metabolic ailments and hormonal disorders can be remedied. The Schroth cure is based on four elements. Calorie reduced alkaline based food without salt neutralises excess acid. The second element involves regulating daily fluid intake by way of rhythmic change.
Schroth packs applied in the morning supplement the treatment. These play an important role in purifying and detoxifying the body. The fourth element involves rest and moderate exercise, engaging the body in active and regenerative phases.
This combination continually stimulates the body in order to activate self-healing powers. The Schroth cure has a positive effect on the body, shedding excess acid and toxins. The psyche and mind profit from the Schroth cure too: fasting acts as a kind of positive shock to the body, releasing serotonin, the happiness hormone. You could call it the happiness cure! Königshof Health & View Oberstaufen offers a selection of seven, 14 and 21-day Schroth cures.
The Buchinger fasting cure
Solid foods are not eaten during this fasting cure. Large quantities of liquids are consumed instead. This is one of the oldest body cleansing methods. The Buchinger fasting cure is the most frequently used fasting method. Teas, juices, and vegetable broth are part of the diet plan. Liver packs and relaxing treatments help to cleanse and detoxify the body.
The positive effects of a fasting cure are felt after a short time. You feel more energised and fitter and physical complaints improve.
Controlled fasting over a limited period alleviates joint related problems, cardiovascular ailments, high blood pressure and a range of allergies. Reduced food consumption places less strain on the digestive system. In turn, this helps to ease disorders of the digestive tract and bowel. Organs such as the liver and kidney benefit from a fasting cure. Fasting cures also positively affect the complexion, helping to alleviate neurodermatitis, for example.
Choose from different fasting cures for a seven, 14 or 21-day stay at Königshof Health & View Oberstaufen.
