WORLD’S LEADING CLINICS FOR THERAPEUTIC FASTING, INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE AND INSPIRATION

Welcome to the Buchinger Wilhelmi clinics

We know how to help you live a healthy life!

More than 100 years ago, our great-grandfather Dr. Otto Buchinger, founder of our clinics and the Buchinger therapeutic fasting method, contemplated the body and soul. Even then, it was clear to him that a body can only be healthy if the soul is content. Nature was his “health spa”, and literature, music and art his nourishment for the mind and soul.

He was constantly driven by the desire to be “always alert and attentive”.

What drives us is the desire to continue this legacy by constantly evolving the Buchinger therapeutic fasting method and, accordingly, our Buchinger Wilhelmi AMPLIUS programme. We want to accompany you during your fast to ensure that it is a wonderful, positive, happy, and even life-changing experience.

SCIENTIFIC FASTING STUDIES

The effect of the Buchinger therapeutic fasting

Buchinger Wilhelmi actively contributes towards international research on fasting and “real-food” nutrition. The world’s largest study on fasting conducted by Buchinger Wilhelmi was published in the trade journal PLOS ONE in early January 2019. The study proves that fasting is safe and therapeutically effective and promotes physical and emotional wellbeing.

We want to highlight sustainability

Whether it comes to supporting relief projects, taking our own initiative, or making conscious use of resources, sustainability has long been part of our DNA at Buchinger Wilhelmi. The global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) defined by the UN provide us with a useful compass for this. Read here which 9 of the 17 goals for sustainable development are particularly close to our hearts.

At your morning health check, a trained nurse will measure your blood pressure, pulse, weight and blood sugar levels in consultation with your doctor.
After that, a cup of tea will be served to your room.

Before and after your fast and if you have booked our nutrition programme, you can enjoy breakfast in our restaurant.

To give your circulation a gentle boost, you can choose from a wide range of activities such as a walk, gymnastics, yoga and Pilates as well as courses on relaxation techniques and meditation.
