diet, supported by regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle. All the information necessary to understand how our organism reacts to the stresses it is subjected to during everyday life is written in our genome. The epigenetic tests that at Palazzo Fiuggi are part of the diagnosis process for guests who have weight loss and detoxification as their primary objective, allowing us to go beyond simple nutritional and biochemical evaluation, analyzing the deeper genetic components. All this is necessary to understand the interaction with the external environment and the types of action to take and activities to implement in order to improve lifestyle and prevent the onset of any pathologies due to incorrect habits. The Palazzo Fiuggi Food Line - is much more than a simple diet: by combining a balanced calorie restriction with a targeted exercise program, with the integration of specific nutrients based on individual needs, molecular pathways are activated which stimulate cellular rejuvenation. In this process, the Fiuggi water plays a fundamental role, as it purifies the toxins present in the body due to oxidative stress and inflammation that our immune system cannot completely counteract. However, it is the skilful teamwork between Chef Heinz Beck and Prof. David Della Morte Canosci which makes the Palazzo Fiuggi Food Line even more unique, moving away from the concept that a diet must necessarily be restrictive: thanks to a selection of foods and nutrients capable of guaranteeing a specific loss of fat and not muscle mass, the unpleasant sensation of hunger disappears and the foods will still delight the palate. A vital factor, of course, is Chef Beck’s skill.
he water of wellness: this is the name that, in more than 600 years of history, has been attributed to Fiuggi water, the leitmotif of the building that bears its name. Characterized by exceptional healing properties, it is said to have cured the ailments of Pope Boniface VIII, Michelangelo, Pope Pius X, Giovanni Giolitti, Benedetto Croce and Alcide De Gasperi. Another of its special distinguishing features is its ability to “break stone”: Fiuggi water contains unique macromolecules belonging to the group of humic acids, a special type of organic and mineral combination that reduces the density of stones,
causing them to disintegrate and dissolve. Numerous studies and proven scientific evidence have shown that they are a big help in healing kidney stone problems: humic acids are able to remove sand and stones from the kidneys, to purify them and restore kidney function completely even in the most serious cases. Its natural antimicrobial and antiviral properties are also renowned; these can increase the immune response and act on the structure of tumors, stimulating their necrosis, in addition to the beneficial effects on a variety of chronic ailments and diseases, including urinary tract disorders, cystitis, pyelonephritis, metabolic disorders, gout and arthritis. In a setting like that of Palazzo Fiuggi, it is therefore no coincidence that water is the basis of the numerous wellness and medical programs offered, dedicated to the full spectrum of wellness and body care. In fact, the exclusive Complete Life Rewind, Optimal Weight, Deep Detox and Full Immuno Boost programs use Fiuggi water flowing directly from the source in a tuffa-
ceous basin located in the local area. In addition to being used in the detox phase, it is also found in the pools and in the Roman Baths that accompany each guest during their stay. The combination of proven medical and wellness paths and the revitalizing waters of Fiuggi will rebalance and nourish mind, body and soul, for a longer life, better lived. It is precisely for this reason that Fiuggi and its Palazzo have attracted countless visitors to the region for centuries.

The first evidence of the use of herbs and medicinal plants dates back to 10,000 BC: phytotherapy is the first form of medicine used by man.
