In February, I arrived at Hippocrates Health Institute for a three-week stay. I knew that I would learn a lot about nutrition, lose some weight, and come home feeling rejuvenated. Little did I know at the time that my life would dramatically change forever… and for the better.

About five years ago, I took on a career assignment and moved from downtown Chicago back to my hometown of Minneapolis, Minnesota. When this opportunity came along, I was a successful Marketing and Sales Professional and loved my life. With that said, I had always felt that I’d meet my dream man when the time was right, get married and have a child. That hadn’t happened yet, so when the opportunity came to relocate back to Minnesota I thought maybe it was meant to be and everything would fall into place. So, I took a chance, packed my bags, and headed north.

Overweight, 56 years old, out of shape, tired with my toe already having been amputated and the possibility of more to come presented me with a big wake-up call. Fortunately, Dr. Sharon Ronser, a naturopathic doctor, referred me to Hippocrates. Reluctantly, I signed up and came but in the first two days I thought I wasn’t going to make it. By the end of the first week, I started to feel life reenter my body and at the end of my three week program, the benefits were so significant that I chose to stay an additional two weeks. Thirty pounds lighter with the foot well on it’s way to complete healing I realized that I had made the best choice that I could at this time in my life. Other guests were benefiting in so many ways that I know that Hippocrates is good for everybody. For those that are healthy, it gives them the tools and the knowledge to keep and improve this precious gift. For those that are ill, with my own eyes, I watched healing occur from every ailment imaginable. One thing I respected the most is that Hippocrates is a lifestyle, and the staff tells you that weight loss is a definite side effect but not your first objective. That objective should be raising your level of overall health and giving the immune system the ability to heal you. Every year I plan to return to Hippocrates, remaining on the program in between. I know that my weight will regulate, I have already lost 30 pounds, my blood sugar will remain within the normal range as it is today, and now I ‘m sure I am able to extend my life. Thank you Hippocrates for making yourself available so that I can walk, ride bikes, swim and just have a good old time daily.

I am the founder of GrandSpace (www.grandspace.com), an artists’ residence and holistic health center in Brooklyn, New York. We recently hosted hosted an all-day workshop with Brian Clement and I learned many new things to incorporate into my health practice. After I told Clement about my unusually fast recovery after a recent shoulder condition, which I attribute to regular green juice fasting, he invited me to write an article for this newsletter.

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.

As lsraeli’s we immigrated to Canada thirty — two years ago and decided to become vegetarians, slowly eliminating meats, coffee sugar etc. We began taking vitamin and mineral supplements and before we were through, probably took every one on the market place. Fortunately 15 years ago, Sol attended Hippocrates since he was under enormous stress from his corporate job in the defense industry. He enthusiastically took a new lease on life and with contagious vigor brought it home. We broke our habitual patterns, began eating living food and stopped taking the chemical supplements and worked hard on our negative thinking. Since then we have returned on a yearly basis and at times have brought our children. We know this is the best investment that we have ever made and the life change program has enriched our family. With elevated body/mind/health we feel in a natural state of blissfulness that rewards us with a sense of calm.

I just wanted you to know that since my visit to Hippocrates this past August, I have taken off 13 pounds. My stomach is at "peace". My energy level is way UP and my alertness is far sharper than it has been in years. When I arrived at Hippocrates several numbers in my blood profile reflected danger. I am happy to report that they have either completely regulated or dramatically improved. With a little bit of homework and ingenuity we are finding and creating raw recipes and dishes that have made our daily diet far more than palatable, they are palpably delicious. Many thanks for guiding me on the path of healthful and whole- some living. Emphatically and Gratefully,

A few years back I was working for a bank in Paris. I had been interested in natural health for a long time thus reading many books, and attending several courses on natural therapies. While in Quebec, I came across the work of Ann Wigmore. The book was different from what I had read before and somehow immediately spoke to me. Ann’s work was not well known in France in those days and finding information was not easy. Later I decided to study naturopathy and attended a conference held by Brian Clement in Paris in Nov. 2000 which heightened my interest in the Hippocrates philosophy.

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 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.
