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.

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.

Every person who takes hold of his or her life has a defining moment that shocks them into doing so. Mine came in threes. In May of 2010, my best friend in the world went into the hospital for high blood pressure and had to stay overnight. I was afraid to lose him and it scared the hell out of me. The next day, another friend, who recently retired from baseball, died of a heart attack at 37 years old, making me ponder my own mortality. The next night, I went to a Broadway play and had trouble fitting into my seat because I was so overweight. That was the moment that I made “Promises, Promises” to get my life in order!

Hippocrates teaches us: “It’s not the food in your life. It’s the life in your food.” I have lost 113 pounds by taking this simple mantra to heart. As soon as I began attending the Hippocrates Life Change Program, the message of Brian and Anna Maria Clement became clear. Symptoms cannot be treated as discrete entities. They must to be addressed as part of a whole physiology that works in harmony so that it may live in harmony, in balance and at peace.

On a cold winter’s day, driving on I-95 between Rhode Island and Connecticut, I was involved in a devastating accident when my car was struck by an oil tanker. The rescue workers believed that I was at death’s door as they wheeled my broken body to the ambulance and rushed me to the hospital.

I want the people who are severely overweight to know that there is a solution to their plight. When I came to Hippocrates, I couldn’t walk through the airport. I had to sit repeatedly in order to breathe. My health was so bad that I had to sit and cry for three hours before I could make it to my cottage. My entire body was wracked with pain. In 24 hours, my blood-sugar dropped to within normal range. After eight years of unsuccessfully attempting this, I was taking 2,000 milligrams of glucophage daily. My lifelong obesity had finally caused diabetes, hypertension and sleep-apnea, requiring a machine for breathing. I had structural damage that severely limited my ability to move, much less to exercise. I took a huge leap of faith: I gave myself one last chance, believing that I was going to die. I came to Hippocrates with liver-failure, failing kidneys and a weakened spirit that was humiliating and unbearable.

All my life, I stayed away from society, even while living in it. In Switzerland, where I lived, it appeared that everyone was acting like robots; people seemed cold and insensitive. I was not able to get a human touch and had no real close friendships or social network. Depression quickly reached me and I attempted suicide at the age of 14. I became a robot myself, living in a bubble for 35 years.

As I travel the world lecturing about health, I use the principles from Hippocrates Health Institute (HHI) to help people heal and strengthen their bodies from illnesses, diseases and cancer. When I first went to HHI 19 years ago, I remember Brian Clement telling me that food doesn't heal the body; the body heals itself. We just need to give the body what it needs.

I was born in Quebec Canada in 1942 during the second world war. The doctor’s told my parents that I had a malformed left hip that eventually changed the shape and position of my leg, back and neck. Although I never remember not having pain, I did not want to take medication since I knew it would alter my state of mind and rob me of the occasional happiness I would experience. Decades ago the allopathic physicians gave up on me, said I would end up in a wheelchair so I did not know where to turn. For the last 20 years I had not been able to sleep on my back. Finally I discovered complimentary health care and began the long process to heal myself. About one year ago I was perusing the newspaper and saw an article on Hippocrates Institute, so I called my friend Francine and asked if she would assist me by coming to Florida and going through the program.

Eight years ago, I was diagnosed with cancer (lymphoma) in my lymph glands. I was told by my doctor that I had only six months to live without resorting to chemotherapy and radiation treatments. I was also told about the side-effects of the treatments and told that I had no choice. I took two “chemo” treatments, losing all of my hair and becoming a physical wreck. My son-in-law, who has a degree in homeopathy, suggested that I consider alternative treatments and advised that we go to Hippocrates. We made the call, and scheduled a visit. I discontinued my “chemo” treatments and, the following week, my wife and I left for Florida. After three weeks at the Institute, I changed my lifestyle, and was soon free of the cancer.

Hi… my name is Emilio and I want to tell you about what wheatgrass did for me. About eleven months ago I began to feel rather nauseated and I had no idea why. I could not eat without having the sensation to vomit and I felt extremely fatigued after exercising (this was the least of my symptoms). A couple of weeks later, I got a weird rushing sensation throughout my whole body; I felt like I was chemically out of balance. This really freaked me out so I went to the doctor where I got the expected response, “It looks like a bit of an anxiety problem, but we will get a blood test to be certain.” I had never experienced such anxiety attacks before in my life. Once the blood results were returned, I was diagnosed with Gilbert Syndrome which is a liver condition (my bilirubin levels were high). Doctors labeled this as a benign disorder, yet I was left perplexed at living with such annoying symptoms.

A third of a century ago, I began thinking in earnest about the fact that far too many apparently healthy individuals were dying or badly damaged by heart attacks, strokes, cancer, and a long list of maladies. I wanted to know why some of us are standing and others not.

I suffered many health problems in my life. At 53, I was a diabetic, taking very high doses of glucose medication, which made me sluggish and tired all the time. My cholesterol was off the charts, my legs hurt, and my vision and my concentration were both blurry. At six feet tall, I weighed 243 pounds. I also had kidney stones, and over the last thirty-eight years I had passed over 40 kidney stones which caused excruciating pain. Six different times I had to have surgery to remove the larger stones from my kidneys. Because of this I also suffered from a very weak urine flow and I had to wake up from two to three times every night to go to the bathroom.

Immediately before graduating college in May of 2001, I started to show signs of jaundice. During the next two weeks, the itching became severe and I started making the rounds of doctors. After two weeks and three physicians and innumerable tests resulting in no concrete diagnosis, I was admitted to a hospital in Phoenix, Arizona where a second sonogram showed a stricture approximately 2c long in my common bile duct. This stricture had blocked the flow of bile and caused my bilirubin count (a yellow pigment consisting of bile salt, produced by the liver) to skyrocket. A stent was placed to keep the duct open and allow the flow of bile. For a few days I felt better.
