When you come to fast at one of our Buchinger Wilhelmi clinics, we first use an enema or a laxative. This cleaning of the intestine helps your body to transition to fasting mode.
On day 1 of your programme, you can use an enema or take sodium sulphate (10–40 g, depending on your body weight), magnesium sulphate (10–40 g depending on your body weight) or any other laxative recommended by your pharmacist.
The required materials are available from your pharmacist or from our online shop.Zurück zur Übersicht
Fill an enema vessel with 1–1.5 l of lukewarm water. Loosen the locking lever to allow a little water to drain out, to remove any residual air from the hose. Hang the enema vessel on a door handle or towel holder, and lubricate the end of the hose with Vaseline. Kneel on the floor, bend your upper body forwards and rest on your lower arms. Then use one hand to insert the hose into the rectum. Loosen the lever to allow the water to enter. Close the lever again, and then carefully remove the tube. Try to retain the enema for roughly one to three minutes.Zurück zur Übersicht
Fasting disrupts patterns of behaviour that you have become accustomed to. This makes it easier to go without nicotine and/or alcohol. Ideally, you should reduce your nicotine and/ or alcohol consumption a few days before your programme.Zurück zur Übersicht
For the transition day you will need 150 g low-fat plain organic yogurt or a vegan alternative and, as desired, a lemon. Everything else is included in the package.Zurück zur Übersicht
The perfect time for fasting is a highly individual matter. The Buchinger Wilhelmi FASTING BOX is designed to allow you to integrate it into your day-to-day life easily. Some people prefer fasting in daily life, as working days provide more structure than weekends and you are exposed to less temptation. Other people, on the other hand, prefer to fast on holiday so that they can fully concentrate on their fast.Zurück zur Übersicht
Bowel cleansing is not essential in order to complete the programme successfully, but it does make the fast more effective. You can administer an enema yourself. People with experience in fasting value the effect.Zurück zur Übersicht
When it comes to choosing a time to start, there is no right or wrong time. Notice what your body is telling you and select a time that suits you, ideally a day when you will not be distracted by important appointments.
