Energy Cuisine

Posted on Updated on


A request. Please take a look at the photograph I’ve shot in the kitchen of this state of the art, medical spa. What you see being extruded from the machine is zucchini and it will be used to make “spaghetti”. And here’s the most crucial part, along with the brilliant chef Karsten Wolf  is the highly qualified and experienced Doctor Benedetto Reisch the dynamic medical Director of the world famous Lanserhof. And this is exactly how the food and the recipes have evolved here…70 chefs and as many doctors did scientific research  together and created the recipes. I’m sure you’ll agree with me that, nowadays, there are as many theories about which foods to eat as there are foods. Confusion, confounded. Whats good one day is declared to be a villain the next day.

Finally, here’s the final word and it is born out of hard core research. This comes from Germany, from the leading Lanserhof medical institution, which has been at the forefront of cutting edge research and most interestingly is based on a symbiosis of traditional naturopathy and state-of-the-art medicine treating both mind and body.

Having blazed trails for thirty years, Lanserhof is Europe‘s leading centre for regeneration and preventive medicine. Lanserhof medical spa, the oasis of regeneration  is perched on the mountainside overlooking meadows, forest and Lake Tegernsee.

It is based on the Classical Mayr Medicine, genetic diagnostics, energy and information medicine and quantum physics with the age-old wisdom of healers, As the dynamic and charming Dr Benedetto explains, “Dr. Franz Xavier Mayr was an Austrian naturophathy physician and researcher, who developed early recognition diagnostics and therapy to cure what we call today chronic lifestyle illnesses”. Here’s the important point,   …The focus is on the digestive system and food.


What we eat, how we eat and what time we eat is a very crucial part of the  LANS Med Concept which consists of four stages of therapy developed by Dr. F. X. Mayr:

1. Rest: Recovery and regeneration of the digestive system

2. Cleansing: Detoxifying and de-acidification of the body

3. Training: Training to achieve a change in lifestyle

4. Substitution: Individual supplementation with vital substances

The therapy activates each person’s basic healing process especially for nutrition-related health problems and brings the metabolism back to balance.

It’s high energy,  it’s easily digested, good health and pleasures of the palate are not mutually exclusive. Energy Cuisine reflects the state-of-the-art research findings of nutritional science, yet still places great emphasis on regional, organic and fresh produce cooked in gentle, product protecting ways.

Energy cuisine results in a strong immune system. Plenty of energy, since there are no heavy hard-to-digest foods that make you sluggish and tired. It provides an ideal balance in the acid/alkaline foods. Through nutrition along Energy Cuisine guidelines, great care is taken to distribute mealtimes correctly over the course of the day.

Burdening the system in the evening is avoided, so it results in sound sleep. Reduced allergies, since fresh produce is used. It results in Healthy blood pressure and of course Enjoyment – without a guilty conscience.

Optimum nutrition at the right time reinforces natural metabolism phases,  turning food to energy. The upshot: better digestion, higher energy quotients, which in turn stokes up the combustion process.A heavy breakfast in the morning? Why?

Our enzymes (protein molecules that control metabolism) are very active Cortisone, adrenaline and thyroid hormones all attain their highest levels during these hours. So what you eat during this period is assimilated really well. Breakfast is the only meal at which heightened carbohydrate consumption does not cause you to put on weight. Give your body high value protein, vitamins and minerals from fresh fruit and vegetables in the morning. Lunch between 12 and 1,30 pm and dinner before 6,30pm is recommended.

The importance of drinking plenty of water underpins the concept of Energy cuisine. It aids in regulating body warmth, further digestion and cardio-vascular functions and remove toxic and damaging substances from the body cells.

It is advisable to drink about 2 liters of water daily.  However for thirty minutes before and after eating, one should not drink. Water dilutes the stomach’s digestive juices and can lead to chronic digestive problems.


You’ll be amazed at the difference eating slowly and mindfully can make. This is one of the most important principles. Not only  do you taste each and every ingredient and enjoy it but you digest it all and have a good digestion and great energy.


The chef has very generously shared some of his amazing energy cuisine recipes. Last fortnight, I was flooded with requests for the Agar agar and detox biryani recipe. Sorry for the delay in sending them to you will do so in the next few days. Should you need Energy cuisine recipes, please instagram, tweet @rashmiudaysingh email
