I often hear people say, “I have a bad back.” Chiropractors love to hear you say that because that means, money, money. I’m sure there are some injured backs; they are good backs crying to be release again. Have you noticed that old people can no longer turn their heads? They must turn their whole bodies because the head no longer turns. If you don’t use it, you lose it.

Addiction is the scourge of humanity and there is no more greatly abused substance than sugar. I am sure that wars have been fought and lives have been lost over it, but most important, it is a viable fuel to ignite and hasten disease. A courtroom defense even claimed that Twinkies propelled a crime, and although this may sound absurd there are granules of truth in it. Medical guide books tag sugar as the most lethal, almost illicit, substance. Health-food advocates fogged the issue by claiming that white sugar/sucrose is the “bad guy” and that other forms of sugar are health-building. This is far from the truth, as decades of research at the Hippocrates Health Institute and other reputable centers have proven time and again. Sugar in any form, be it from honey, agave nectar, maple syrup, corn syrup, xylitol, yacon syrup, evaporated cane juice or crystals, fructose, dried fruit, fresh fruit or its juices, etc., fulfills sugar addictions and fertilizes both physical and emotional disorders. Low glycemic and high glycemic is further propaganda that misleads the public into believing that there are less harmful sugars, but every form of sugar feeds and multiplies viruses, bacteria, yeast, spirochete, parasites, amoebas and cancer.

During the Russian space station ,program experiments were made studying the effects of recycled water on the cosmonauts. They found that this water was not adequately hydrating them. Further research showed that any type of filtration or purification of H20 was diminishing some quality related to it being properly absorbed by the cells. On the contrary, water taken directly from natural sources, i.e., a stream, spring or lake, hydrated the body effectively. They explored the difference. The scientists proceeded to identify that the quality that allowed cells to better absorb the water from natural sources was an energetic component; they termed it "hydro-plasma."

It is hard to believe that a country with wealth and technological know-how would choose to poison its food supply. Unfortunately, that is just what is happening in the United States today, according to food-safety activists opposing the use of pesticides in food production. And despite the growing awareness of the connection between pesticides and cancer, the situation is getting worse not better. Pesticide use has more than doubled since Rachel Carson published Silent Spring in 1962. Despite efforts by the government and food industry to alleviate fears, polls show that more than 90% of Americans are worried about agri-chemicals in their food and water supplies.

As a society, we are taught since birth to be consumers. We’re always on the lookout for the next great product. Electronics have to be smaller and more feature-packed. Automobiles have to be faster and sleeker. This mentality carries over to the arena of health and wellness as well, with a constant barrage of new food products. Often shipped across the planet from remote locations, these “superfoods” are touted for their wondrous health benefits, which are typically hyped up as “30 times greater than this” or “80 times more concentrated than that.”

In the distant past, humanity learned to grow food from the land, sharing and passing down this knowledge through the centuries. A common practice was preparing part of the harvest as seeds for planting the following year. The exceptional quality of certain seeds over others was progressively identified and naturally propagated. The 20th century would bring about some important changes. Through genetic studies, a handful of scientists succeeded in creating new species of wheat, corn and other grains.

This century will elevate nutrition to a place of prominence in health restoration. Led by a pioneering international group of orthomolecular doctors, there is mounting research and growing evidence that nutrients that build the strength of one’s anatomy are, ultimately, the best way to prevent and heal disease. Hippocrates Institute stands as a perfect example supporting this evolving science. The time has come for us to use common sense and once again realize that before modern science existed, the inherent tapestry of life was woven with simple, natural processes including the consumption of nutritious food.
