Kochholzweg 153 6072, Lans
Leaning heavily on founder F.X. Mayr’s theories that diseases stem from imbalances in the digestive system, the custom tailored wellness programs at this SciFi-looking forest compound in Austria, all marry modern medicine with time-honored holistic methods, and center around intense detoxification (colon cleansing, lymphatic draining, even light psychotherapy). If it all sounds like serious business, that’s because it is—but so are the results: the programs are said to have life-changing regenerative effects. Thankfully, it’s all balanced by ample spa time for salt scrubs and massages, and custom meal plans that while skimpy, border on gourmet. In addition to the original, there’s a brand new, 70-room resort, Lanserhof Tagernsee, on Lake Tegern in Germany and a city outpost in Hamburg called Lans Medicum.
Seepromenade 11 A-9082 Maria Wörth
There's nothing pretty about the approach, but it's worth it. With its highly clinical approach to health and reputation for glowing results, this no-nonsense center on Lake Wörth in Austria focuses on resetting the digestive system. Guests go through Applied Kinesiology evaluations to determine which vitamins, minerals, and supplements they should take and are put on strict diets to fast-track their detox (daily saline laxatives help with that too). The first three days are the worst but renewed energy levels supposedly make the rest of the week a breeze.
