Why choose Buchinger fasting?
Buchinger Fasting is not a simple water fast with no calories, but a gentle variant that is just as effective. It consists of a daily food intake of about 250 kcal, taken in the form of freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juices and vegetable broths, accompanied by plenty of liquids (water, herbal teas, aromatic infusions). Since the “miracle” Otto Buchinger a century ago, it is commonly practiced in Germany where it is prescribed by the medical community and sometimes reimbursed by the public health insurance system. This German physician-philosopher, who was said to be condemned, found his salvation by submitting to a fast. His method has become a worldwide reference in the field and a clinic
run by his family welcomes people from all over the world for regenerating retreats.
Yellow Crocodile cures for whom?
To this question, Bruno Calvet, founder of the Yellow Crocodiles, answers that there are as many reasons to take a cure as there are trainees. For example, he welcomes people who have been in excess and for whom the dietary break, by normalizing the metabolism, will remedy overweight, lack of sleep, overwork. People who are victims of stress, exhaustion, on the road to
ie of burn-out find inner calm, vitality and a better mood. Other trainees suffering from chronic inflammation see a reduction of their symptoms through fasting. Many of them also come for a moment of serenity and fitness
in a particularly pleasant setting.
A medical supervision and a protocol dedicated to the comfort of the diet
Elodie Pavan, the center’s general practitioner, checks before any registration that there are no contraindications to the practice of fasting
. 8 days before the beginning of their stay, the registrants receive recommendations to begin a phase of “dietary descent” which facilitates the entry into the fasting period. During their stay, they are trained in the principles of balanced nutrition and leave with a nutritional program for the “refeeding phase”.
A stay of relaxation and discovery
Les Crocodiles Jaunes, a 4-star Gîtes de France gîte, is a beautiful and comfortable house of character where trainees can enjoy the swimming pool (in season), the Jacuzzi, the Sauna (24 hours a day) but also the billiard table or the library
It is located in Castelnau de Montmiral, between Toulouse, Montauban and Albi. Organized by Bruno Calvet, the (gentle) hikes in these Tuscany-like landscapes
and the visits to the medieval towns and villages are an opportunity to discover the treasures of this Pays de Cocagne. Depending on their desires and objectives, participants can enhance their stay with Pilates, yoga
, meditation, sophrology, massages or art therapy.
Who is Bruno Calvet?
After a career in advertising, Bruno discovered fasting and its benefits. Each of his cures changed the course of his life. After one of them, he found his way: he wanted to make the benefits of fasting available to as many people as possible. He then began training in naturopathy, sophrology, and hiking accompaniment and created Les Crocodiles Jaunes. ” If fasting is less popular in France than in Germany, it may be due in part to the attachment of the French to gastronomy! But I see the mentalities evolving and the word of mouth on the benefits of fasting working. I believe, or at least I hope, that in a few years, fasting will be widely used and even encouraged by the medical community
e. The positive feedback from our participants and their loyalty makes me feel good”, comments Bruno Calvet.
I’m Michelle, and I love to travel. As a former hotel expert for one of the world’s largest hotel chains, I’ve stayed in nearly every type of room imaginable (including many that were not so desirable!). Nowadays, I am fortunate enough to be able to explore the world on my own terms. From international flights to learning different languages, there is nothing too far out of reach!
