Spelt fasting

Boost your happiness with spelt fasting

Why choose a Hildegard von Bingen fast

We would like to invite you to take a moment to think about how you feel. This is because personal reasons provide the best motivation.

We tend to get trapped between ‘too much’ and ‘too little’. That is, we eat, drink and work too much yet fail to give ourselves enough time to rest, relax and sleep. Spelt fasting at the Pirchner Hof health resort is a great way to give yourself – and your body – some breathing space.

  • Pause
  • Refocus on what really matters to you
  • Switch off
  • Bolster emotional wellbeing with our discussions and talks

  • Give the digestive system a break, boost your immune system, and increase wellbeing through fasting and gentle exercise
What makes spelt fasting so special?

What makes spelt fasting so special?

As one of her Six Golden Rules, Hildegard von Bingen recommends we have at least one fast a year. The aim is to cleanse our ‘second brain’ – the gut – thereby detoxifying the whole body. A Hildegard fasting holiday does not, however, require complete abstinence from food. The gentle spelt fasting plan consists of a moderate spelt-based reduction diet that includes a Hildegard fasting soup and spelt bread. This helps with:

  • High blood pressure

  • Metabolic disorders

  • Excess weight

  • General malaise

  • A weak immune system

Why choose a Hildegard von Bingen fast

For Hildegard von Bingen, spelt, an ancient grain, was one of the most important and healing basic foods, as it can be used to make flour, bread, pasta, soup and even coffee. Rich in protein and vitamins, it also has a higher mineral content than wheat. Combined with Hildegard’s healing spices such as galangal, cinnamon, pellitory, wild thyme and nutmeg, spelt can significantly improve health and wellbeing by:

  • Strengthening the immune system

  • Stimulating the metabolism

  • Cleansing the blood, lungs, liver, kidneys, gut and skin
