What is Fasting?
Fasting is the conscious, voluntary and timely abstinence of solid nutrition. According to Buchinger/Lützner, Fasting consists of a carbohydrate modified diet, which takes between 5-10 days for a healthy person. It´s an invitation to switch from external to internal nutrition. A natural process that offers the body tranquillity and regeneration.

Meet our Fasting Coach
Sybille Dölker Correia da Silva
I have been specializing in the field of prophylaxis for 35 years. As a health and nutrition coach I would like to accompany and support interested people to find, a new balance in their lifestyle and eating habits. This can be initiated with a 7-10-day fast for healthy men and women according to the Buchinger / Lützner method.
After completing the nursing school I moved to Überlingen on Lake Constance. For five years, I worked in the city hospital and learned that this small town with two large therapeutic fasting clinics, the Meka of Fasting. I started working in the Buchinger-Klinik and was enthusiastic about this kind of holistic treatment.
I could see the results of fasting in chronic diseases like rheumatism, diabetes, hypertension and many more. I followed my husband, to his native country, Angola.
I first worked in the malnutrition center of the Children's Hospital in Luanda. This showed me the other side of voluntary fasting, called HUNGER.
Nurse, Fasting Coach, Health & Nutrition Coach
To counter this, I founded Mundo do Amor e.V. in Germany. The association was able to help with medicine, food and clothes in this desperate situation. Most importantly, we have created playrooms for the little patients where they still receive attention and loving care up to today.
For over 6 years, I worked at the American Embassy as a link between the staff and local health facilities. I gave instructions on avoiding food poisoning and a healthy lifestyle in the tropics
Over the years, nutrition and prevention have been my focus. In 2016, I received my certificate as a fully certified fasting coach at the German Fasting Academy. I have been training as a health and nutrition consultant since 2017 and am certified since 2019.
In addition to my mother tongue, I speak English and Portuguese. This gives me the opportunity to guide groups in these languages and thus offer visitors and locals a common fasting experience.

League of Friends
Due to my previous work in the feeding center of the children's hospital in Luanda, I am still very attached to the fate of the little patients. Maybe you think about it. Use the money you saved on food during your fast where many families can only afford one hot meal a day, if at all. Maria Paiva can be seen here in the picture, continues to work in the playrooms of the hospital that we founded. One dimension of fasting has always been social work and alms sharing.
Lisbon is our home
Lisbon is the capital of Portugal with 2.6 million people living in the vicinity of the city. Lisbon is the economic and cultural center of the country. A unique and varied city with narrow streets that combines the charming Old Town with to the modern shopping centers. Here you still can and should let your mind and soul wander.
A bit of History
Lisbon is located on the mouth of the Tejo river. The center is formed out of the lower city, Baixa, the business and financial district. It has been restoured after the severe earthquake and following tsunami on November 1, 1755 that went up to the Marques de Pombal, which has been rebuilt in the Parisian boulevards style. The main square is located on the banks of the Tejo river and is encapsuled by Castle Hill (Castelo de São Jorge), Alfama, Bairo Alto and Chiado.
Cosmetics from the Inside Out
A fasting week, organized in the form of courses, under the direction of fasting coaches is highly recommended. We provide comprehensive information and a supportive fastening community. Fasting weeks simultaneously serve the purpose of continuing education and self-realization. The various supplementary programs improve one's quality of life; a stronger sense of your body, creativity, learning how to eat consciously, relaxation, meditation, self-help from Mother Nature's pharmacy, and much more.
Please note that a fasting week for healthy people is not therapeutic fasting.
It's always impressive to see how the face of a fasting person changes. After only five days of fasting, the puffy “full-moon face” with feverish red blotches begins to relax and regain its characteristic contours. Dull eyes become clear; restless glances become steady. A growing self-confidence can be read in the features. During a fast, the fatigued, resigned, gray face of the person suffering from exhaustion first turns inward, becomes quiet, and collapses a bit.
After some time, it fills out, regaining its freshness and delicacy. The eyes begin to sparkle. After this restructuring process of the soft, smooth, elastic skin the blemishes have disappeared, and wrinkles are smoothed.

Our Fasting Program
In the week before fasting, you start to reduce fat, coffee and alcohol. Start reducing from the top of the pyramid and work yourself down. One day before fasting you can eat rice, porridge or 3 servings of fruit. Alternatively, you can also have a plate of cooked vegetables for lunch.
FIRST FASTING DAY
We give you an individual dose of Glauber's salt (sodium sulfate decahydrate) between 30 and 40 g dissolved in water. During the next one to three hours, you will have several bowel movements. Fasting begins with a thorough colon cleansing. The body changes from intake to excretion. The nutrition starts from the inside; hunger disappears. You are now living on your own resources of your body.
