BUCHINGER DIARIES – DAY NINETEEN

BUCHINGER DIARIES – DAY 19

I bought a statue today.  Yes you heard me right folks a statue.  A big one.  Couldn’t help myself, none of the other therapies were working so I thought a little retail therapy might help.  It did – until I got the bill.  Then I had a heart attack.  It is a very lovely statue though.  Called ‘La Dame Au Fleur’ it was created by a French artist, Lilly Platzer, who is married to one of the Doctors working in Buchinger.  They have an exhibition of her work in the clinic’s foyer and the guests were all invited to a viewing and meeting with the artist.  Her style is whimsical and brings a smile to the face.  I really needed a smile.  And I haven’t been shopping since my disc incident – two and half months ago.  So there.  That’s my excuse and I am sticking to it.  But I am wondering how the hell I’m going to carry it, when I can hardly carry myself home?

BUCHINGER DIARIES – DAY 11 

FASTING FOR PROTEST
I heard yesterday that an Indian politician fasted for one day in protest of the corruption in the Indian government.  FASTED FOR ONE DAY – sorry I can’t help shouting – THE WIMP.  After nine days of fasting, let me tell you a one day fast ain’t going to do it.  I know that Fasting for protest is an Indian tradition – Gandhi moved a nation with his fasting.  So it begs the question, what I can move with mine.  I know I can remove weight but can I get people to do things for me?  What an interesting thought.  Now I am not comparing myself to Gandhi by any means, more like Bobby Sands.  Though I haven’t reached the stage where I am going to paint my cell with shit.  I wonder if fasting for political change would work in the middle east?  And is fasting the same as a hunger strike?

BUCHINGER DIARIES – DAY 14

The sun shone down on a green and pleasant land as my taxi driver, Reiner and I drove around a blue blue lake ringed by distant blue blue peaks.  Destination, Lindau, a medieval walled town nestled on a small pedestrian-only island.  Fluffy clouds ringed the lake and for a moment an overwhelming sadness came over me.  I thought of the marred beauty of Lebanon.  We could have these vistas if it were not for the concrete fortresses built shoulder to shoulder from one end of the country to the other.  Neon lights and garbage littered roads.  (more…)

BUCHINGER DIARIES – DAY ONE

23 Jul 2011

INTRODUCTION
In late spring 2011 I spent three weeks at the Buchinger Klinik in Southern Germany.  I went primarily to lose weight and get therapeutic treatments for the herniated disk in my back which my doctors wanted to treat conservatively.  It was a little scary going alone when I couldn’t walk very well because of my disc and I was in constant agony.

BUCHINGER DIARIES – DAY ONE 

Preparations for a day of fasting day.  I woke up this morning with peeing instructions – in a cup and straight to the nurse on my floor.  The lovely Helga gave me a present in return – a liquid laxative with the instructions to take it at bedtime (10 pm).  I will be cleansed tomorrow several times over – she promised.  After which there will be an enema every two days – oooohhhhh can’t wait for that joy!
