The importance of having a healthy and balanced diet for the wellbeing and health of the individual should be well known today. Malnutrition is the main cause of obesity and the so-called civilization diseases. Extensive study results of recent years of nutritional therapy are of primary importance in the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases.
Diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, musculoskeletal disorders and even cancers are closely related to obesity and poor eating habits. They could be avoided and healed if we paid more attention to the things we let into ourselves, which means developing a natural sense of food that is healthy and wholesome for us.

Above all, the daily observance of waiting periods works wonders, as it activates the “garbage collection and recycling function” built into each of our cells.
We offer you flexible nutritional models based on a 16/8 diet, which leaves your personal taste and instinct as much freedom as possible. This ultimately leads to a successful and salutary change in eating habits in the long term. However, the central element is and remains the activation of autophagy, which we can nowadays call probably the most important “detoxification and purification mechanism” of the cell.
