Hiking and Therapeutic Fasting – according to Buchinger or Konz


You would like to rest a bit from life in general? and get rid of some excess weight at the same time? Therapeutic fasting can make it happen. Fasting does not necessarily mean going hungry. It is a voluntary abstinence from nourishment which helps the body detoxify, and it has a positive influence on healing processes.


It also brings on: weight loss, a strengthened immune system, and above all a new sense of lightness, energy, and wellbeing. The body is relieved from its digestion processes, which use about 30 percent of overall energy consumption. It now uses this energy to renew itself—during walks through the wonderful Harz forest landscape, for example.


In the Harz Natural Food Hotel, we apply different methods of fasting in accordance with the needs of our guests. We offer three basic types of fasting cures:


  • The Otto Buchinger Health Fasting Method, which prescribes alkaline herbal teas, vegetable broth and freshly pressed fruit juices.


  • The Franz Konz Clay Fasting Method, where you detoxify by taking health clay dissolved in water, and drinking a large amount of pure water. From time to time you also drink fresh coconut juice.

  (The two fasting methods can be combined.)


  • Fruit Fasting is the more dignified way of detoxifying. You partake of ripe, easily digestible fruit two to three times a day, or of vegetables, which alkalizes the body and frees it of acid. Fruit-fasting is an ideal addition to a fasting therapy program.

Anyone who feels healthy and is in good psychic condition may take part. If you are on medication, please consult a doctor with experience with fasting before your fast starts.

We suggest to all participants that they undergo a colon hydro therapy from a friendly medician and alternative practicioner in the neighbouring town on the day of their arrival, this thorough cleaning of the intestine makes fasting much easier. It significantly reduces your feelings of hunger.


As an alternative, we recommend that you clean up your intestine with the help of an irrigator which you can bring yourself oder rent or buy from us.


Please take only a light breakfast with fruit or raw vegetables the day you arrive, this makes the start of the week of fasting easier.

Our Week of Therapeutic Fasting from June 29 to July 6  


We were a great group, did a lot of hiking and it was so much fun. For breakfast, we had an alkaline healing clay drink to get rid of the freed toxins, then a filtered Green Smoothie made from wild herbs, and we had some hot warm tea. On our hikes, we took plenty of alkaline Kangen water (pH 8.5) with us, and for lunch, we usually found a nice restaurant where they had fresh juices or a good choice of teas. After returning to the hotel, we were glad of having the sauna, swimming pool, massages or an alkaline bath. For dinner, we relished some fresh vegetable broth as well as freshly squeezed juice, and on the last day, juice of a young coconut.


We did not get any unwelcome side effects from our fasting, except that one lady had a slight headache during the first two days. At the end of the week however, she was happy about her weight loss of 5 kg.

It was a rewarding experience from every angle.
