Fasting means enjoying the pure life

People who have not fasted yet, often think it’s like being hungry. For example, many people immediately think of negative words like diet or calorie counting, if they imagine they do not eat. Fasting is often equated with prohibitions and strict discipline, because it is difficult to imagine how long hikes without eating should be possible.

However, fasting is so much more than do not to eat for a while. Fasting by Buchinger uses only a minimal number of calories in the form of fruit and vegetable juices, teas and vegetable stock. However, the fasting cure has many methods to prepare the body perfectly for the limited number of calories and convert.

This type of fasting is a kind of calorie-modified fasting and bears the name of the German fasting physician Otto Buchinger for a good reason. So it is no torture and also possible to fast over a longer period of time - you will experience your own limits on a different way. Glauber's salt and enemas help to empty and cleanse the intestine. As a result, you no longer feel hungry and are willing to fast much easier.

Fasting offers enormous health benefits. The body is freed from accumulated toxins and metabolic by-products, such as cholesterol and uric acid, and the risk of ignition decreases. In our experience, this leads to a pain reduction and to improved mobility.

However, you will ask yourself what happens to your organism during Buchinger fasting cure and how it should still be possible to be physically active. But against all expectations, hiking during a fasting week is an ideal way.

Although the storage tanks are empty, movement during this time is very important in order to achieve the greatest possible positive effect. Gentle physical activity stimulates the metabolism and the blood circulation. As a result breathing is increased and more oxygen gets into the brain and cells. In return, cell toxins and metabolic end products can be brought to their destination in the liver, kidneys, skin or lungs, and then excreted. This ensures that it does not come, or maybe only in medically negligible extent, to a decline of the important muscle mass.
