Food is our fuel. You don?t select your gasoline based on the color of your car. So too our fuel choices should be based on what we know our body needs. We have all indulged in something that brings a smile to our face, from sight or thought alone. All too often, we are drawn in by catchy jingles and TV spots. Only to know that aching belly or extra trip to the lavatory was a result. Factors such as time, price, mood, upbringing, present company and habit influence our meal choices. Many of us try healthier options when they are presented, and may even notice differences or slight improvements in our health. Switching from soda pop to V8 is likely a step in the right direction, but it is basically like trading a can full of sugar and acid for a bottle of salt and vegetables not suitable for sale whole.

Optimal health is not possible without the benefits of pure drinking water because the cumulative effects of ingesting water contaminants puts a severe strain on our bodies’ ability to fight off sickness and disease. Did you know, pure water is responsible for carrying nutrients and oxygen to cells, cushioning joints, hydrating skin, converting food into energy, removing toxins and wastes, empowering the body’s natural healing process and enhancing overall good health? But the wrong kind of water can pollute, clog up and hinder your wellbeing and vitality. Now you can have pure water and peace of mind.

When I was a kid, water came from the tap. It came in a glass, or maybe even straight out of a garden hose or a water fountain. No one carried water in a bottle, unless you were camping and then it was a metal canteen, not a plastic bottle. Nowadays, bottled water is so commonplace that many restaurants serve it automatically asking only, “spring or sparkling?” While it may be true that city water is not the healthy elixir it once was, are we really doing ourselves and the environment any service by buying our water in bottles?

For the last 6000 years, Ayurvedic medical practitioners prescribed turmeric (curcumca longa L.) to alleviate pain, balance digestion, purify body and mind, clear skin diseases, expel phlegm, and invigorate blood. Recently, neuroscientists, noting the low cultural incidence of Alzheimer’s disease in elderly individuals living in Indian villages (just 1% of those aged 65 and older seem to contract the degenerative brain condition) turned their attention to the possible effects of flavonoids on brain function—specifically the photochemical curcuminoids present in turmeric. Today, Western medical science is proving, in study after study, the validity of turmeric as an anti-cancer, anti-aging, anti-oxidant, and, of course, anti—Alzheimer’s agent.

In today’s environment of trends, style, and hipness, one must search through the effects before the truth appears. Our perception of image is manufactured in Hollywood and today is represented by anorexic young ladies and "stud puppy" boys. This sculptured reality is misguided and corrupting to the imagination of the public. Here in North America our government has admitted that bordering on 60% of us are severely overweight and our children are less fit and heavier than ever. Sadly, we are now exporting this disorder worldwide with our fast thinking, fast food mentality.

Arthur Agatston, M.D. began to develop "The South Beach Diet" in 1995 as a means to help his cardiology patients improve their heart health. After becoming frustrated with the "low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet" recommended by the American Heart Association, and discovering that there were no convincing studies available showing that the American Heart Association diet saved lives, he decided to conduct his own research about obesity and diet.

When I first became interested in health foods, I believed that the soybean was a “miracle food.” Its health benefits were said to help everything from breast cancer and high cholesterol to heart disease. Those who consumed vegetarian diets were told that it was the most desirable protein source and could be used as a meat substitute. But after meeting Brian Clement at Hippocrates Health Institute, I was surprised to learn that the beliefs I had about soybeans were myths.

On Earth Day, April 22, 2005, Doug WALSH, began his 3000-mile, 5-month hike from Mexico to Canada through the Western U,S. on the Continental Divide Trail-the most difficult hike in North America. Hiking on average a marathon a day, WALSH, a former Colorado Outward Bound Instructor with years of backcountry experience accomplished what he set out to do, show the word that the human body thrives on a raw food diet when under great physical duress and challenge. Having climbed the 100 highest peaks in Colorado, and hiked the 2650-mile Pacific Crest Trail in an amazing time of just four and one half months, WALSH recently finished the greatest challenge of his hiking career-the Continental Divide. Hippocrates was a proud sponsor of this important and historic event, and it was our great pleasure to interview Doug, just days after he completed his enormous feat. We encourage you to spread the word about Doug, now affectionately called, the Lance Armstrong of raw foods, so that the world continues to see the tremendous benefits of raw and living foods.

Here are ten reasons why all of us should be troubled about the rapid proliferation of genetically engineered foods:

Many years ago I was shocked to find one of my formerly obese friends looking fit, sexy and 20 years younger. As a matter of fact, when I first laid eyes on her, l didn’t recognize her. Being a positive and up-beat person who walked off the trail sometime before, getting lost in food as a friend, she causally told me that she cut a picture of a healthy body of a well-known woman from a magazine and replaced the head with a picture of her own head. She placed this composite all around her house. From this genius idea forward she utilized all of her mental will and physical power to become the hard-bodied youth she had never been. Eight months later and 93 pounds lighter, this living food body builder and aerobic enthusiast was a living example of what each of us can create when our vision is grand for the right cause. Our bodies can be one of our best friends but it does not like to carry additional pounds, be clogged with poison and fats, or have sluggish nerves and crumbling bones. Our discombobulated thoughts create discombobulated bodies. We must always recognize that it is not only our brain cells that make things happen but also our body cells are ready and able at any given moment to assist. Back in the twentieth century we taught people to sit, contemplate and reflect - in the twenty-first it demands we create, achieve and accomplish.

I have been thriving on a vegan living food diet for more than 15 years. I know The Hippocrates diet is the ultimate diet for healing from disease and gaining wellness. In my quest for the best health over the years I have kept abreast of the new “diet books” that have hit the market. They each seem to have their own success stories but none of them came close to producing the results of the HHI diet.

Eating is a primal nourishing act that connects us to the world around us. By the very process of taking in food, we transform the external environment into our internal environment. Meals are a celebration of our interdependence with nature. Yet in these modern, frenetic, convenience-ridden times, that sense of celebration has been banished from the few minutes we call lunch or dinner. Mealtimes have become more of a bother than a pleasant daily ritual that gives focus to our lives.

Our original diet was undoubtedly uncooked and vegetarian. Over the centuries we have certainly strayed from our beginnings, although in recent generations, some have made a dramatic turn back from poor eating to proper living.

I like to think of my transition to living foods as climbing a ladder. With each ascent to a new rung, the din of the naysayers grows quieter. The endless landscape of billboards aiming to sell me fast food and alcohol begins to disappear under cloud cover. The clamor of advertisements pushing the latest pharmaceuticals is more hushed.

In one of his latest books, LifeForce, Brian Clement presents a nutritional chart with examples of how we can acquire certain essential nutrients. It is foremost that the food we eat builds our bodies and gives us the ability to live a life rich with activity, joy, and freedom from disease. For over half a century Hippocrates has proven that sprouts, which are actually growing at the time you bite and ingest them, are the most nutrition-rich foods. Sprouts are inexpensive, widely available, and easy to digest. Many other excellent foods fill the role as nourishment. Fresh and raw garden vegetables, ripe and organic fruits at moderate intake, vegetable and green juices, etc. round out the wide world of food that the body enjoys.

Webster’s Dictionary defines a fad as, “a practice or an interest followed for a time with exaggerated zeal.”1 For most people, when they think of the word “fad,” the word “diet” isn’t too far behind.

This international hit is apparently attractive to the thousands who have attempted to adopt it. The diet claims to improve health, regulate weight and prevents aging. Dr. Peter D’Adamo presents the work that his father developed over several decades. They are not biochemists but hold a sincere belief in their work which holds as its central hypothesis that each    blood type requires certain foods and rejects others.

The 3,000-year-old science of Ayurveda is a perfect complement to the live food lifestyle and cuisine. It recognizes that not only do we each have a unique constitution, but also that the effect of our diet on our constitution is amplified when we adjust what we eat according to the seasons, the cycle of our lives, our work requirements and the time of the day.
