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.

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.

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.

At age 20, I was diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD, also known as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis), a deadly affliction. The pain and suffering that comes with inflammatory bowel disease is intolerable. But of even more concern is the urgent need to have a bowel movement many times throughout the day without warning. To make matters worse, at times there is no indication that one’s bowels need to evacuate until it is time to do so. Healthy individuals receive a signal from their body alerting them to find a restroom.

I spent 8?1?2 years in the military, the majority as a U.S. Navy SEAL. I loved the work. My entire experience will always be a blessing and I often wish I were still in the thick of it. While I served in the Teams, our motto was always “sack up” and deal with it. Time is a luxury we weren’t afforded when it came to being in pain or attempting to heal. I was frequently suffering from massive headaches, which turned out to be an indication of severe muscular tension in my body. I was treating the headaches as prescribed?—?with large quantities of Motrin?—?to the point that my stool would occasionally be black from the bleeding in my stomach.

Over the last two and a half years I lost 70 pounds by combining what I thought was healthy eating, exercise and meditation. Even with those changes in my lifestyle, my health started to decline. I began to realize I could not exercise as I had in the past, because it inflamed my joints from neck to ankles.

Many people have suffered broken bones. My claim to fame is the historic number of breaks that I have had in and around my ankles. Several years ago, I broke my fifth metatarsal in two places. When the cast was finally removed one of the clean breaks had not healed. The orthopedic doctor suggested adding screws. This did not sound good; I had already been down that road and could not bear the thought of another surgery I hadn’t the slightest idea of how to handle my dilemma until a friend suggested I call Hippocrates. I talked to the Director, Brian Clement, who strongly advised that I get on a bone-building, living food, vegan diet. Additionally he directed me to use magnets to help the bones heal faster. While all of this was helpful, it was several months and my ankle still had not completely healed. After much contemplation, I realized that I needed to attend the Life-Change Program, even though my economic situation was not conducive to doing so at the time. I called back and spoke to Brian and told him I needed to come but that I could not afford it. He rapidly responded by saying "you cannot afford not to come!" He was right! During my stay I focused on electro-magnetic therapy therapeutic movement, and a very strong adherence to the diet including green drinks and wheatgrass. After the three—week program, my situation had totally changed and the x—rays showed that the bone had healed completely Shortly after this, I was dancing at a local fair in my home town of Key West where I ran into my orthopedic doctor. He looked at me with disbelief, surprised at what he was seeing. He asked what I had done to correct my problem and I told him that Hippocrates had not only changed my bones, but had changed my whole life. I have been back two times since and now plan on spending more time at Hippocrates. I have traveled all over the world in search of wonders. Yet, after my experience at Hippocrates, I realize that there is a whole world of wonders with people from every corner of the globe right in West Palm Beach. I can now honestly say that when you change your life with the 3-Week Program, your life will change forever.

I'll never forget the day when my spleen ruptured and the doctors had to remove it. I was eight years old and during the procedure they determined that my ‘insides were misaligned. The surgeon recommended removing a piece of my intestines and my dad agreed; the doctors said it was very important. From then on, I was sick every year with colds and flu that would last for weeks, even though I was taking my regularly prescribed pneumonia and flu shots. My health got progressively worse and I began getting systemic infections. Shortly after I was married, I contracted spinal meningitis and nearly died. I broke out in sores that covered my body and began to lose the hearing in my left ear from the tubes that the doctors placed in them when I was a child.

While sipping my first wheatgrass at a local health store in Kansas, I spied a copy of The Wheatgrass Book by Ann Wigmore and promptly read it, cover-to-cover. It was so intriguing that I phoned the institute, and arranged a stay in 1996. My challenge at the time was dangerously low blood-sugar. I had high cholesterol; so, I promptly embarked upon the 21-day regime. At the end of that stay, my blood-sugar rose by 40 points, cholesterol decreased by 60 points and my vision and hearing improved. It was exciting to feel energized and challenged to continue this lifestyle.
