Resting, detoxifying, training. . .
Almost every single one of us has tried at least one of the above in order to regain energy, feel vibrant and be healthy from within. We are striving to become a better version of ourselves and caring for our body instead of fighting it.
I am always trying to take good care of myself but I have to admit that it can be quite challenging to incorporate the required practices into my daily life. How could you fast while passing a mouth-watering sushi restaurant? Or how could you find the time for a treatment or massage between business meetings? Constantly travelling around the world doesn’t make it easier for me which is why I love to take some downtime and escape to the Lanserhof instead.
The Lanserhof is the most modern health resort in Europe and is my personal little paradise. In midst of the beautiful nature of Bavaria, the center offers a unique combination of enjoyment, health care, spa and nutrition. The concept is based on the Modern Mayr approach and the latest medical research which offers you a holistic treatment that totally replenishes your body and leaves you feeling exeptional.
The approach is named after Franz Xaver Mayr, the godfather of fasting, which already suggests that I was fasting as well. Mayr believes that a clean digestive system is the basis for good health and therefore adivses to focus on three pillars: resting, detoxifying and training. This may sound hard at first but I can promise you that fasting becomes easy when you are in such a relaxing environment as you can find at the Lanserhof. There is no tempting food and beautiful distractions will keep your mind off of it.
After thorough examinations and diagnostics, the professionals created an individual program for me which was especially designed for my blood work, discomforts, stress level and personal needs. I got to stay for a week and enjoyed renewing days filled with deep tissue massages, an immune-stimulating hay pack, relaxing baths and nurturing treatments. Also, more advanced treatments which involve Reflexology and Colon Hydrotherapy can be proposed.
After one week, I can honestly say that I had become a better version of myself. My skin was glowing, I was feeling relaxed, recharged and balanced. My digestion, which used to be messed up by stress and eating on the go, was renewed and inflammation has gone down. I felt strong and confident to go back to my daily life full of energy and delight. I cannot recommend this place enough. If you ever feel the need to make a cut and restart all around – the Lanserhof is your savior.
