What is fasting?

 

Fasting is the voluntary and conscious abstinence of solid food for a limited period of time and is part and parcel of many religions and cultures. There are many different ways of fasting. The fasting experience we offer is based upon Dr. Otto Buchinger. According to him, fasting is no starvation diet, but a low-calorie liquid diet. Rather than eating, you drink a lot of water, herbal tea, fresh juices and broth. By consciously abstaining from unnecessary stimuli, fasting results in a raised awareness of your own needs and sharpens your senses.
