Germany: detox holidays

Germany and Austria are renowned for a wide range of health & wellness holiday offers related to nutrition, fasting, detox and weight-loss. The reason behind it, is that the pioneers of fasting as a healing method, come from these countries. The most popular ones are: O.Buchinger, F.X. Mayr, J.Schroth and S.Kneipp.
