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.
The world's water supply, which is the same as it was at the beginning of our planet's existence, is so contaminated that we must all be gravely concerned and make educated choices as to the type of water we consume.
In our drive to produce and synthesize natural resources, mankind has invariably and often inadvertently created many harmful organic compounds.While ‘by—products` are an indispensable factor in the process of chemistry; many of these organic compounds are deadly.
Learning, behavioral and developmental disabilities, including Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and autism prevent our children from reaching their full human potential. Seventeen percent of children in the United States have been diagnosed with one or more developmental disabilities. These disorders have widespread societal implications, from health and education costs to the repercussions of criminal behavior. Though trends are difficult to establish with certainty, there is a growing consensus that learning and behavioral disorders are increasing.
As we know all too well, our world abounds with health hazards: driving, improper food and beverage choices, lack of activity and tobacco consumption among many clearly put our lives in harms way Less visible l or often invisible toxins, such as hidden chemicals, electro-magnetic fields and negative environments are often the greatest danger. Most of us reside in a very enclosed, self—created world believing that we are independent and disconnected from everything around us. In truth, we are all inter-connected; everything we do affects others, as the actions of others affect us. Sadly our planet has been greatly abused and misused, becoming a dumping sight, in a literal sense, but perhaps most significantly in a figurative one, contaminated by humanity’s common lack of regard for all of life. As the days pass and the pollutants mount, we are all coming closer to achieving endangered species status. In truth, it could be argued that we humans are the cancer of the planet and, like cancer itself, have the potential to kill our host-Mother Earth.
If one of the chemicals used to make Teflon (PFOA, also known as C-8) "does not harm human health or the environment," as its maker DuPont claims, then why has 63 year-old Joan Guinther of Vincent, Ohio been denied health insurance coverage?
Governments are determining that the level of arsenic in our water creates numerous fatalities and would be too costly to clean up so we just write those poor folks off as victims of mans greed. In our so-called civilized countries, it is estimated that the average person’s body contains 280 times more fluoride than it should. Mercury is at an alarming level in the majority of people tested. This comes not only from the amalgam fillings that dentistry propagates; it also comes from the petro-chemicals placed on our food. As the chain continues, these chemicals pour into our water- ways polluting the fish which many people call a "healthy" food. We could go on for hours with description after description of illuminating "feedback from nature". When will we wake up and see that our lack of concern for what we discard is literally killing us? One must also ask the question how much is enough, when we already have the technology to propel our engines with hydrogen and eliminate many of our energy concerns with solar and wind technology. Further, organic farming has become solidly advanced, why do we allow money to dictate our continuation of the pollution of the planet?
