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.

Well, just like many others before me, I can say that illness brought me to raw food. I spent over 2 years trying to work with numerous doctors to get a diagnosis for myself All I knew was that whatever I put into my mouth caused me severe stomach pain and debilitating diarrhea. I spent years going from doctor to doctor, general practitioner, gastroenterologist, endocrinologist, etc. But no one could Figure out what was happening to my body: After numerous tests came out negative, I was told I probably had Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and was given medicine to help me live with it; however, the medicines side effect caused not just drowsiness but actual sleep. This was not an answer for someone with two young children. I decided to find another ways.

At the risk of being overly dramatic, I can say with certainty that October 25, 1985, is my own personal “Day of Infamy.” On that day, I was escorted into the doctor’s office and told that I was HIV+. Everything I knew about myself or thought I knew about myself was thrown into a whirlwind. The only alternative left to me was to face the HIV infection, stigma, and discrimination. I made a personal refusal and determination not to succumb to stigma.

As a young lady in my twenties I found myself constantly exhausted. I was so tired I could not even brush my hair because I could not lift my arms. When I went to the doctors they found a low-grade fever and put me into the hospital for a liver biopsy. From that I was diagnosed as having hepatitis non A, non B. They told me it was chronic and persistent and of course offered no help, telling me the only thing I could do was rest.

In the early part of the twentieth century 92 years ago I was born into a meatpacking industry family. Taking advantage of all the available meat I could eat, by the time I was in World War 2 and, 5 years later in Korea, I had my first grand slam heart attack. My left ventricle was so damaged they told me I would not make it. This was not the first near death experience I had had. Back in 1918 I survived the catastrophic flu epidemic that killed thousands. Before that, when I was born in 1910, I was a puny kid always being compared to the large strong healthy farm boys around me. Almost daily I was beaten up and, for survival alone, I took up boxing to defend myself. I also pursued track & field and soccer in school.

Gerard and Larry Aliseo spent many years working hard in the family businesses in New Jersey construction and importing food from Italy. Work was the most important thing for them; driving, hard work because that was what they were taught was most important, until at age 30 older brother Larry had his first heart attack, followed by a second and third at age 31. Gerard’s heart attack came two years later, when he turned 31.

I recently returned from Hippocrates where I did the three week Life Change Program. The purpose of my visit? To discover the ultimate healing diet for cancer and other diseases. Do I believe I have found it? Yes, I do.

As I grew it was wonderful to see how health—minded my parents were. Dad was a self—taught herbalist who created his own home-spun remedies whenever any of our 12 family members were ill. Of the 10 children, only my brother Phil and I followed our parent’s lead and became vegetarians. As we continued our education we were fortunate to meet Ann Wigmore and see the remarkable work she was doing at Hippocrates in Boston. We embraced wheatgrass juice and slowly but surely more living foods. Impressed by the profound results we received, Phil and I both attended the Hippocrates Institute at its new home in West Palm Beach, Florida. For me it was the start of something big! Over the years, I have attended the program more than 15 times! Hippocrates is now my second home; the staff feels like family and I have even sent my children there.

When I opened my eyes on the morning of January 19, 2010, I never would have thought that my life would change forever, but it did. That morning I had all the classic signs of a heart attack and was rushed to the Emergency Room. After four days in the Cardiac ICU, my doctor informed me I had Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, an autoimmune disease that makes the body believe its thyroid is a foreign entity and try to kill it, triggering the thyroid to fight for survival.

I had reached a point in my life where I was physically, mentally, and spiritually bankrupt, I realized I needed a complete overhaul, having been addicted to alcohol, drugs, sugar and hyper-stimulation along with a wide variety of physical infirmities. If my life was not in chaos I didn’t feel secure. Stress was my motto. On my way to a final crash my mother’s voice of love and reason cried out that I should attend Hippocrates Health Institute. With great hope I walked into the doors. I have finally learned that everything that happened in life that bothered me was more about my perception and reaction to them than what I formerly believed. I have maintained the program for the past three years during which time my weight has regulated, a lump disappeared, the polyp on my vocal chord is almost non-existent. My surgery for gingivitis was no longer necessary and my hypoglycemia has come under control. Last year, feeling renewed, I graduated from the Health Educator Course and have now dedicated my life to teaching people about living foods and benefits of the Hippocrates lifestyle. One of my endeavors has been to create a wheatgrass and sprout farm in Webster, Florida, near Tampa. Thank you Hippocrates, now I have the love and serenity in life that I had been searching for.

I was born on a farm in Ingelstad, Sweden. Like all farmers, my family lived off the land and consumed copious amount of meat and dairy foods. One of my earliest memories was the squealing of an unfortunate pig for our Jul (Christmas) meal. At that time, I was 19 and could no longer eat any animal products. I soon became a mother; my children and husband and I flourished as a family. We were so happy and never fell ill until 1979 when my children contracted high fevers and the flu. My body was also ridden with pain, so much so that I could not sleep; the only one left to tend to us was my husband. My legs felt like lead and my shoulders felt like they were made of wool. The physicians were of no help as they said it was all in my head. Another young doctor suspected it was a neurological disorder so they sat me in a wheel chair and began dispensing a wide—variety of medicines. Although I was ill, I was sufficiently aware enough to realize that I still did not have a valid diagnosis. So, I did not take the pharmaceuticals and became worse with each passing day. The disorder became so severe that my legs just hung lifelessly; a walker was not much help at all and I could not hold my head upright. I wanted to die.

It was September 2008 when I noticed a lump on my neck. I wasn’t experiencing any pain so I didn’t bother telling anyone. I continued with my life doing what I love?—?she decided to go to a place called Hippocrates Health Institute.playing soccer three times a week and coaching my son’s soccer team. I lead a busy life. I’m a mechanic with two repair shops. I’m also on the board of a monthly automotive training seminar. I didn’t say anything to anyone about the lump on my neck because I had to go to Italy for my brother’s wedding. Also, upon my return I would help set a new Guinness World Record for the longest indoor soccer game. The previous record was 30 hours and we completed 34 hours of playing. After the game I told my wife about my lump. She was upset. I went to the doctor and had a biopsy done. They removed my lymph node and found a cancer called follicular lymphoma. There were two more swollen lymph nodes in my abdomen and in my chest. I told a couple of my customers and one of them told me about a friend who had breast cancer.

Hippocrates Health Institute in Florida has changed my life and given me a future. For me, food was my first priority and since 1992 I had been looking along the lines of nutrition but no one dealt specifically with living food. If one had allergies or food intolerances, you were told what to give up but never what to replace it with, such as bread/wheat flour, which was one of my serious addictions.

Ever since I was a child I suffered from an upset stomach and I was unable to digest almost anything. It wasn't until I was about 50 years old that I was diagnosed with pancreatic divisum since birth, which only five percent of the population is diagnosed with and only one percent ever have symptoms. Apparently I was part of the one percent. I experienced a terrible burning sensation, like my pancreas was being squeezed and a knife was slowly twisting in my back. I went to the hospital six times in five months with chronic pancreatitis. I couldn't bear to live that way any longer, and reaching a breaking point, I was ready to try just about anything to get healthy. At six feet tall and weighing about 250 pounds, I had always been a poor eater and overweight.
