Stay healthy with Hildegard
Take time out for a spelt-based fasting week and do yourself the world of good! The ideal location for your retreat: the Pirchner Hof in the tranquil Alpbach Valley, the first hotel dedicated to naturopathy and the holistic philosophy of Hildegard von Bingen. Hildegard-style fasting doesn’t mean cutting out food completely, but conscious reduction. During a fasting week the body cleanses and regenerates – and being away from material things enables a fresh perspective for a healthier lifestyle.
The spelt-based fasting includes talks on fasting and nutrition by your host and Hildegard expert Christa Peer, group sharing sessions and daily meditation sessions. Treatments to support the cleanse include a detoxifying body pack, lymphatic drainage, a copper bristle brush massage, daily exercise programme, Baldmoney pear honey and DIY liver compresses. A moderate spelt-based diet includes the Hildegard fasting soup, spelt bread and Hildegard’s healing herbs and spices.
