In 1994 I was running my own post-production film company with a stomach that hadn’t stopped hurting in years and I was ready for a change. My local health store suggested I come to hear a woman speak about wheatgrass, which sparked my immediate interest and I slowly began adopting the Hippocrates program. Within days my stomach ailment disappeared. A year later, Brian Clement spoke in Toronto after which I moved closer to the living foods and felt the rewards.

I have been coming to Hippocrates for 10 years. This article would be much longer if I would express my feelings for Brian, Anna Maria, Wilbur, Hansa and all other therapists and staff members whom I have known for these past many years.

I believe that one of the greatest benefits of working at Hippocrates is the variety of awesome people we come in contact with on a daily basis. Every Monday morning I look forward to seeing the fresh and curious faces of our newest guests. Some are excited, some are perplexed, but they all seem to be genuinely interested in discovering the magic that makes this place Hippocrates. Still others are familiar faces that have returned to experience the magic a second or third time. Such is the case with Adam and Denise, who come back at least annually.

I was thrilled when Brian asked me to write a short piece about my experience in the 9-week Health Educator course and why I chose to enroll in that program. First, being at Hippocrates for the nine-week training completely transformed my life. I would urge anyone to take that extra step. It is a giant leap from the Life Change Program. The course is open, not just to practitioners, but to anyone with a passion to go the extra mile with the living foods lifestyle and the desire to lead others. The bonus is that in the process of learning how to reach out to others you find amazing benefit and treasure in your own life. That is what it is all about: inspiring others to revolutionize their lives just by BEING and LIVING what you believe in.

My Name is Valerie Brewer. I have been employed at Hippocrates Health Institute for 7 years. On October 12, 2009, my son, Michael, was surrounded by five of his peers. They poured a flammable liquid on him and set him on fire, and then left him for dead. After weeks of not knowing if Michael would live or die, the doctors finally said he was going to make it. Michael spent five weeks in an induced coma because this was the only way he would have a chance of surviving this horrific ordeal. His body blew up beyond recognition, his head was the size of a basketball and 65% of his body had 2nd and 3rd degree burns on it.

It was during the pregnancy of my fifth child, around the end of 2003, that I started developing pain beyond anything I had ever felt before. Having already given birth to four boys and expecting a girl, I wondered if it was normal to have such pains. The gynecologist said what I was experiencing was normal, most likely sciatica, and all I needed was rest. But the pain was unbearable and started attacking my nerves, running through my legs, inside the bones, into the pelvis and up my back and neck. My entire body was red and inflamed and everything was swollen. The doctors said I was retaining water and it would eventually subside. Yet the further the pregnancy advanced and the bigger I got, the worse the symptoms became. I intuitively knew something was seriously wrong.

When I was a kid, physical activities were an integral part of my life, just as it was for most of us. After I finished my schooling and headed out to college, the importance of those activities steadily diminished. Mind you, I wasn’t studying in the U.S., but in Switzerland. Therefore, this “slacking off” is endemic of our modern world and not based on a particular way of life. I still managed to be relatively healthy, until I decided to return to the U.S. I had grown up in California as a kid and moved to Switzerland as a teen, so I was pretty familiar with my new surroundings?—?or so I thought. However, as a young man in his twenties, I was totally clueless when it came to proper nutrition, just like the majority of youngsters today.

As I got older my health started to deteriorate. I started to experience a variety of aches and pains. My knees and my joints hurt all the time, and I had respiratory problems. Even more troubling was the constant brain fog that I experienced. My symptoms were particularly heightened in the winter months. I was in an overall state of disrepair.

I was born in St. Louis, Missouri but now reside in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida and have been here for many years. I have had a long and successful career as an attorney, most of it being spent in New York City. Several years ago the physicians diagnosed me with prostate cancer and I was alerted to the immediate need for an invasive surgery, given that the cancer could spread to the bone. They said if I did not have the operation immediately I would die. This occurred in June so I took a strong drug and scheduled the operation for September. Before this occurrence, I had read about Hippocrates in health magazines and decided to attend the program. Immediately I embraced the Hippocrates life style and strictly adhered to the diet and exercise routine. One year later I returned to the physicians for a biopsy and was told the cancer had disappeared. My PSA went from 7 to 1, cholesterol from 250 to 188 and my weight went from 212 pounds to 178 and I have been staying on the living food program for years, I hold Hippocrates responsible for all the health and longevity with which I am blessed. I recommend this lifestyle to anyone who wants to heal a disease or improve his or her life.

Ten years ago when my health was  wavering and my strength was going I attended Hippocrates and learned to adopt living foods. Shortly after, I got married, and my wife and I continuing on the path of building our health were then blessed by adopting two children from Guatemala. When they arrived their skin was filled with redness and one arrived with pneumonia. We began our children on the green drinks and living food and within a few months the skin cleared and both were healthy without the use of medication. They are now 5 and 3 and our pediatrician constantly comments on how healthy they are. We are all vegetarian and still living on the program. Our gratefulness goes to Hippocrates.

Back in the late nineties I found myself suffering unimaginable fatigue, nausea and constant interrupted sleep brought on by the excruciating pain in my stomach. My physician conducted some investigative blood work which appeared completely normal. Finally, upon my insistence, she suggested an ultrasound. That revealed a ten centimeter mass in the tail of my pancreas.

At one time I was a total non-believer in anything but conventional medicine. For thirty years I’ve had very serious physical difficulties. Twelve abdominal surgeries since the 1960’s: (as a result only 12% of my large intestine is left and 10% of the small). The doctors were always groping for answers, but never looking at alternative possibilities.

My childhood was surrounded by a nurturing and supportive family, eating what I believed was a healthy diet: whole wheat bread, cold cut meat sandwiches, hot dogs, and pizza ”but no pop” with an occasional few mouthfuls of salad. However, everything changed when I left home for the first time to attend college in 1998. My diet and lifestyle became that of a rock star, without the rock and roll. I knew in my heart that my choices were not making me happy and ultimately destroying my health. Strictly for ethical reasons, one day I stopped eating animal products. However, choosing to avoid eating flesh created a major dilemma about what I was going to eat. I dabbled in macrobiotics and a cooked grain and legume-based diet mainly focused on soy, thinking it was a safe and effective alternate source of protein. My health began to deteriorate right before my eyes. Thus began my journey into the abundance of information and misinformation in natural health, longevity and spiritual wholeness. At 25 years old, I decided to study at Hippocrates. It was indeed a blessing. My level of health increased dramatically to the point where I was able to accomplish anything I set out to. Due to the knowledge and expertise I gained at Hippocrates, I was able to look within myself and find happiness.

Wiltraud Salm came to Hippocrates Health Institute in a wheelchair, hardly able to move. Her body was immobilized by arthritis, riddled with psoriasis and covered with terrible sores. She is preparing to leave on her own two feet, with clear skin. Wiltraud is ready to move on with her life, pursuing the activities she thought she may have to give up. Her recovery has been an inspiration to the directors, staff and guests alike at our South Florida campus. I caught up with her as her sixth week at the institute was drawing to a close and we had a chat about her stay at Hippocrates.
