How I discovered fasting, and how it can help you too
I am originally from Vienna and I have started fasting in 1999, originally by introducing early time restricted feeding (eTRF) aka dinner cancelling into my weekly routine. This worked very effectivily and soon after I experimented with all various forms of intermittent fasting.
Austria is also the place where I had my first ever Buchinger/ Luetzner fasting experience, and where I subsequently trained as a fasting coach so that I could help others discover the benefits of fasting.
In 2005, after I had just completed a major merger project working in the corporate world, I was in search for a holiday of…well, a more spiritual kind.
I sought rest, peace and solitude to regain strength.
It was then that I thought a monastery surrounded by beautiful nature would be just the place to reconnect with myself and, as a keen martial artist in training, the offering of fasting intrigued me.
My first Buchinger/ Luetzner fast lasted two weeks and it was an amazing experience which has stayed with me ever since!
It is fair to say that I was mentally and physically exhausted at the time, suffering from migraines and IBS. There was also a problem with my skin that haunted me since my early child hood and did not exactly promote my confidence.
During this first fast my skin cleared up, the migraine associated pain in my face disappeared and due to the elimination diet that followed the fast, I discovered that my eating patterns were the main contributors to my skin problems and IBS. After that first fasting experience my migraine never returned and that for me was a phenomenal success!
Since then I do a Buchinger/ Luetzner fast twice a year and it helped me to explore a lot about myself, to develop strength and focus, and it keeps my health in an optimal state. In between my Buchinger/Luetzner fasts I add alkaline fasts and occasionally throughout the week I still practise eTRF/ dinner cancelling or other forms of intermittent fasting which complements my healthy eating habits and exercise as well as supporting my fitness, waist management and better ageing goals effortlessly.
MY QUALIFICATION AND AFFILIATIONS
What do people say about fasting?
The biggest tangible change I have noticed since working with Sonia is that I stopped drinking coffee and consequently also stopped smoking. I am calmer since and in spite of turbulence in my life I am now committed not to break my new healthy habits!
I have lost over 10 kg as a result of my fast and, perhaps more importantly, I know will lead a more disciplined/healthy lifestyle following the fast. Spending my vacation fasting has actually been a lot of fun!
