The BICHINGER Wilhelmi is a cutting-edge wellness resort with locations in both Marbella and Lake Constance. The Buchinger Wilhelmi Lake Constance clinic is located high above Lake Constance, with spectacular views of the lake’s forest-lined shores and Mainau Island, as well as the Alps’ snow-capped peaks. Dr. Otto Buchinger finds the perfect environment for his fasting clinic here, in this stunning, almost Mediterranean landscape – surrounded by nature, open, and inspiring. Buchinger Wilhelmi’s Marbella residences are shaded by ancient palm trees and have views of the Mediterranean. The architecture of the clinic is also light-filled, with natural materials and colours,allowing it to blend harmoniously with the Mediterranean landscape.
The retreat provides a range of room choices to fit all tastes, ranging from a cozy hideaway to a spacious suite with panoramic views of the sea and the Rock of Gibraltar. Qualified and compassionate treatment distinguishes the retreat. You will be served by a team of trained professionals with over 500 workers in the two clinics during your stay. Your health will be examined by a team of 20 physicians. Your clinical partnership will begin with comprehensive diagnostics, a thorough medical check-up, and a confidential interview in order to obtain the best possible outcome during your stay.
A day at the Buchinger clinic begins with a morning health check. A nurse will take your vitals such as blood pressure and sugar levels. You will then enjoy a warm cup of tea served at your room. You can choose from a range of activities such as walking or yoga to boost your energy and mood.
You will consume freshly juiced fruits or vegetable consommé while you fast. A nurse will send you a warm liver pack after lunch to improve your metabolism. The afternoon is yours to enjoy and you have a variety of recreational activities to choose from. Concerts, seminars, and film rounds are among the cultural events planned for the afternoon. Every year, over 6,000 visitors from all over the world visit, with more than half returning on a regular basis. The reasons for their arrival and the medical problems that have brought them here are as unique as the people themselves. The Buchinger Wilhelmi program is based on the fasting approach founded by Dr Otto Buchinger, the clinic’s creator (1878 – 1966). This method has been honed continually over three generations and in cooperation with university research centres.
Buchinger Wilhelmi’s fasting program is based on over a century of experience. It is intended to assist you in regaining and maintaining your standard of living, functional ability, and inner peace. Guests that are fasting are given herbal teas, freshly prepared vegetable consommés, and freshly squeezed fruit juices – all of which are naturally organic. The fast starts with a light vegetarian meal on the day you arrive, accompanied by a day of digestive rest. Following the hard, you gradually increase your nutrition over the course of four days – an intense and pleasant experience that is essential for the long-term success of your visit.
Buchinger Wilhelmi’s medical facilities successfully integrate contemporary diagnostics with complementary medicine, such as naturopathic and alternative approaches from both western and eastern traditions, as well as psychosomatic medicine. The primary emphasis is on preventing health problems and promoting a long-term safe lifestyle. Those who are unable or unable to fast will enjoy a calorie-reduced diet ranging from 800 to 2000 calories, as well as our organic gourmet cuisine. Since nutrition is such an important aspect of health and well-being, the Buchinger provides a variety of rewards and recommendations to help you begin a new lifestyle when you move back home.
The clinic also has a group of excellent therapists who specialize in a variety of therapies from around the world, including Chinese and Japanese medicine, Thai and Indian medicine, and traditional European naturopathy. These therapists will assist you in selecting a suitable physical therapy program that will keep your body in top condition. Buchinger Wilhelmi offers a diverse range of sports and relaxing opportunities. In addition, under the supervision of a professional, you can try out different relaxation methods such as autogenic preparation, meditation, or yoga. A more physical workout is provided by our personal trainers. Cycling, tennis, or golf are some other options.
