Despite its recent surge in popularity, fasting is a practice that dates back centuries and plays a central role in many cultures and religions.
During a fasting programme your calorie intake will be reduced dramatically and sometimes food it will be omitted altogether. A large amount of water and special fasting teas are recommended throughout the fast to keep you hydrated and energised and to flush out toxins. Guests on a fasting retreat report finding it much easier than doing a fast alone at home, as you are with like-minded people facing the same challenge, round the clock therapy and spa-treatments, and an experienced fasting specialist who designs your personalised diet and programme. There couldn’t be a more relaxing way to fast!
Healing Holidays offers a wide variety of fasting programmes across the world, with several popular destinations in Europe. Germany, where the Felke Med, Buchinger and F.X Mayr fasting methods were all developed, is widely considered to be the homeland of fasting retreats. The stunning landscapes of Austria and Portugal also offer an idyllic backdrop for your fasting holiday in Europe, or for those wanting to travel further afield you can undertake fasting programmes in destinations like India and Thailand.
Benefits Of A Fasting Retreat
The benefits of fasting are astounding. It is one of the most powerful tools on the planet for reversing insulin resistance, stubborn weight loss, and has long terms protective effects against neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimers and Parkinsons. It helps protect against liver disease, heart disease and even cancer. It also helps our immune systems get stronger, revs up our metabolism, and helps increases the natural secretion of growth hormone, making us more energetic and more youthful.
