Recently in western society, there has been an unwavering trend towards vegetarianism. We are finally acknowledging the abundant positives from consuming foods that do not leave behind debris. Further, we have de-intellectualized nutrition and started to respond to our own instincts in this matter. Here at Hippocrates, we have refined the message of vegetarianism and brought us back to our historic and biochemical roots. Now, for several decades we have observed the obvious benefits that all people gain from consuming foods with the three most important elements.
Over the last several decades science has finally diminished some of its arrogance and begun to explore the natural chemical elements in vegetarian food. Such findings are the anti-oxidant effect, the phyto-nutrients and a wide spectrum of elements that formerly were unknown have significantly moved us forward and are shedding new and exciting light on the importance of diet and whole food extracts.
“Biology will be to the 21st Century what physics and chemistry were to the 20th Century. The main area of interest (will be) the production of enzymes, or living catalysts, which (will) act in the same way as chemical catalysts” Megatrends, Ten New Directions, John Naisbitt (1992)
A recent scientific exploration has revealed one of the most significant discoveries supporting the power of food as medicine. This food-based medicine is turmeric (botanically called curcuma longa L.). At first, volumes of evidence exposed the anti-cancer effects of its flavonoids, specifically the phytochemical curcuminoids. As Dr. Russell Blaylock, M.D. states, "There is a multi-level anti-cancer process that occurs effecting the growth of cells from the use of this eastern delicacy. Additionally, it strengthens the immune system, lowers blood sugar and acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory due to its potent COX-2 enzyme inhibitor effect." Most researchers advocate that we need between 1000 and 3000 milligrams daily of this fragrant yellow "spice." Since it would be difficult to consume this level in the condiment form, it is generally suggested that we consume it as a supplement. It is also known to be helpful to take this supplement with oil rich cuisine such as sprouts, algaes, and/or condiment oils such as Hippocrates' PHYS-NEUR oil. Many researchers believe that tumeric interaction with magnesium adds to its effectiveness. Consuming foods rich in magnesium or taking a bio-available liquid magnesium supplement such as ENIVA can multiply its benefit.
I was never much of a cook. I couldn’t seem to get that timing thing down quite right. Over time, I actually learned to like very well-done, often times totally burnt food, especially toast and pizza. Back then, my smoke detector doubled as my oven timer as well as my “time for dinner” bell, and my mantra to my intimidated friends became, “Oh, just scrape off the burnt part and eat it" it’s not gonna kill ya!” Al» though the firefighters of engine #9 came over to see me many times, my guests usually only came over once; for some reason they always wanted to go out to eat.
Over the time we have worked with people there has been an ever increasing trend for them to consume harmful levels of indigestible protein supplements. Body builders and athletes are notorious for consuming these noxious potions, yet, there has been a growing interest in the general populous with the absurd notion that high protein diets are healthy. From our vantage point, on a daily basis we see the effect that excess protein has on the organs, immune system and general health. We are clear that this debris contributes to cancer, hardening of the arteries, immune cell weakness, emotional disorder, kidney and bladder impairments and failure, and these are just a few examples.
Is the answer to our current health care crisis as simple as drinking a sufficient quantity of water per day? (See formula below on how much to drink.) It sounds too easy doesn’t it? Think about it for a moment. Trillions of dollars are being made annually worldwide when it comes to health care. Pharmaceutical companies have billions of people literally hooked on drugs that do absolutely nothing to cure their health problems; at best they alleviate symptoms. The pharmaceutical industry leaders have made statements that indicate what their industry really wants is that all dis-eases be long term, controllable and manageable (using drugs), not cured!”
In 1972, on a rainy Alabama road, my life was changed forever when a speeding car slammed into my vehicle. The collision was so catastrophic that it took 45 minutes to free me from the wreckage, and I was left with many critical injuries. The most serious were to my legs, which sustained over 40 fractures; I also suffered severe organ, nerve and muscle damage. Doubting that I would live, the doctors insisted that my only chance for survival lay in amputating one of my legs; but I refused the surgery. Consequently, during a period of three months, one organ-system after another shut down as infection spread throughout my body. My sight and hearing deteriorated drastically, and I was in unrelenting pain from the crushed and severed tissues in my legs. Desperate to save my life, the attending physicians were willing to consider alternatives. Fortunately, I had been medevaced to the UCLA Medical Center, where extensive research about energetic healing was being done in the Parapsychology lab under the direction of Dr. Thelma Moss. Jack Gray, an energetic healer participating in Dr. Moss’ research, agreed to work with me. After three days of continuous healing treatments from Jack, my pain began to subside and the healing finally began.
