Instinct Probiotics

 

We have a new line of probiotics in our Hippocrates Store.  They are called Instinct and come in 4 different units of activity 50 Billion, 80 Billion, 200 Billion, and 50 Billion Vaginal for Women.

 

The Instinct probiotic is a new LifeGive product that has been formulated exclusively for Hippocrates.  What makes this probiotic stand out in a very crowded field of probiotics is the proprietary ingredient of AstraBiotic.  Instinct (with AstraBiotic) was developed in 2014, and is the only probiotic that addresses both the digestion and the absorption functions of probiotics.

 

Instinct has a 90-96% rate of protein breakdown because it works all the way through the digestive track, and not just in the stomach and small intestine.  Naturally derived non-animal enzymes have a much wider range of PH adaptability, allowing it to work in in different organs that have different PH levels.   Proteins that you have digested (either through food or supplements) cannot be utilized by the body unless they are broken down into smaller peptides or amino acids, and in fact can be harmful if not digested.

 

Because so much of the protein is being broken down, the absorption rate into the intestinal walls increased by 40%.  The intestinal walls are where the most nutrients are absorbed into your body, and the Instinct probiotic not only increases that absorption rate, it also helps to repair the intestinal wall, which leads to an improved absorption rate once again.

 

The Instinct Probiotics are 100% vegan, non GMO, plant based enzymatic probiotics and are available for purchase and shipping to anywhere in the world.

 

Instinct 50 Billion: Broad spectrum probiotic formulated to bring balance to both the small and large intestines.  Made for those suffering from minor digestive tract issues such as constipation, gas, bloating and general discomfort. (30 caps: 44.95)

 

Instinct Critical Colon 80 Billion: Created to support the large intestine as it has much higher levels of bacterial strains.  This ensures regularity and relief from occasional irritable bowel, and works quickly and effectively.  (30 caps: 60.95)

 

Instinet Super Critical 200 Billion: Specifically developed for use after taking antibiotics.  Restores and brings balance back to the entire lower digestive tract including both the small and large intestines. (14 powder servings: 34.95)

 

Instinct Vaginal Balance 50 Billion: Designed to support the urinary and vaginal tract of women. The bacterial strains in this product mirrors the balance of probiotics found in those areas naturally.  Special acid resistant capsules are utilized so that the probiotics are guaranteed to make it through the acidic environment of the stomach.  (30 caps: 44.95)

What Are Probiotics?

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that play a very important role in your health. They can be found everywhere inside and outside your body doing good deeds but, most reside in your gut. These desirable microorganisms include names like:

• Lactobacillus acidophilus
• Lactic acid bacteria
• Bifidobacteria
• Bifidobacterium longum
• Escherichia coli
• Lactic acid bacteria

And many more.

Why Do I Need Them?

Believe it or not there is a war going on inside of your body every day. Probiotics form a lining along the walls of your intestines creating a physical barrier to hinder invasion of bad bacteria. Probiotics comprise 60% of your immune function by secreting chemicals that battle pathogenic bacteria, viruses, fungi, mold and yeasts thereby keeping you healthier. Besides boosting your immune system probiotics perform many other important functions such as:

• Lowering cholesterol
• Lowering blood pressure
• Aiding in digestion
• Improving iron absorption and other minerals
• Helping you synthesize nutrients from your food
• Reducing inflammation
• Cleaning and scrubbing the lining of your intestines
• Helping with allergies
• Helping manage urogenital health
• Managing irritable bowel syndrome and colitis
• Support the development and functioning of the gut
• Giving you energy

A lack of sufficient amounts of beneficial bacteria weakens your immune system and leaves you open and exposed to germs, bad bacteria, and virus that can make you sick. When the digestive tract is healthy, these beneficial bacteria filter out and eliminate things that can damage it, such as harmful toxins, chemicals, and other waste products. On the flip side, it takes in the things that our body needs (nutrients from food and water) and absorbs and helps deliver them to the cells where they are needed.

The majority of probiotics colonize in the large intestine. These living organisms form a neural network that is sometimes called your “second brain.” This neural network in your gut takes in information from your external environment and remains in constant communication with your first brain through your central nervous system helping you to make intuitive decisions. Hence the term, “gut feeling.”

How does this work? How does anything work – through energy. Probiotics in a healthy person number up to 100 trillion. In a healthy person these beneficial bacteria will outnumber your own cells by a factor of ten to one. Up to seven pounds of you is actually probiotics. These microscopic organisms are constantly moving and all this movement creates a tiny amount friction which creates an energy field. This energy field interacts with other subtle energy fields around you warning you of danger and helping you to make better choices. Probiotics want you to live. It is in their best interest for you to live and to be healthy because they depend upon their host (you) for their own survival.

Where Do I Get Them?

1. You Were Born With Them – During a delivery through the birth canal, a newborn baby picks up bacteria from his/her mother. These good bacteria are not transmitted when a Cesarean section is performed and have been shown to be the reason why some infants born by Cesarean section have allergies, less than optimal immune systems, and lower levels of gut microflora. Drinking chlorinated water and the use of antibiotics destroys all living organisms in your gut including the beneficial bacteria. Stress can also contribute to an overgrowth of harmful bacterial by changing your body chemistry making it more acidic which is what bad bacteria loves.

2. Fermented Foods – Raw fermented sauerkraut and kim chee made from cabbage is an excellent sources of probiotics. What makes our sauerkraut and kim chee unique is the fact that the cabbage, onions and garlic have a high sulfur content which inhibits the growth of the bad bacteria while allowing the growth of beneficial bacteria. However, probiotics are heat sensitive and are destroyed by the cooking process. Therefore, you must make sure your fermented foods are not pasteurized, irradiated, or heat processed in any way. I would also suggest that you choose only organic fermented foods in order to minimize your exposure to toxic pesticides used in conventional farming.

3. Supplements – LiveGive “Instinct”, “Ocean Energy” and Living Streams liquid probiotics available in the Hippocrates store are powerful ways to restore the balance of your intestinal microflora.

The showy firespike ornamental bush is a wonderful addition to any garden. Butterflies and hummingbirds cannot resist its bright scarlet red tubular blossoms!  This tropical perineal plant can grow up to four feet tall and will grow year-round in zones 10 and higher (South Florida.)  Even gardeners in zones 8 and 9 will find them growing back from the ground in the Spring after a typical winter. While it will tolerate partial shade this plant will produce more vibrant red blossoms when in full sun. When planting firespike prepare the soil with lots of rich organic compost and space the bushes two to three feet apart to give them room to grow.  Here at Wheatgrass Central we have firespike growing all over our beautiful 50 acre campus. This adds to the serene ambiance of the World’s Premier Health Encounter for the benefit of our guests. Come to Hippocrates and visit our Organic Garden to learn more about plants and enjoy a rejuvenating stay here by surrounding yourself with nature in our immaculately manicured tropical oasis!

Our Elders Speak

With over 200 years of combined experience as holistic health practitioners and leaders and experts in the Living Foods Movement, Our Elders––Fred Bisci, Ph.D., Brian Clement, Ph.D., N.D., Rabbi Gabriel Cousens, M.D. and Viktoras Kulvinskas––have been teaching a healthy therapeutic diet and lifestyle to thousands of people around the world.  They started this movement, this awareness all the way back as far as the 1950s and 1960s with Ann Wigmore. Over the years, Our Elders have refined their teachings––eliminating and adding based on their clinical findings and personal experience––to come up with a very strong and powerful formula for a vibrant healthy lifestyle. Through continuous research and passionate teachings, Our Elders have helped many people restore and retain vibrant health.

Our Elders original message has become diluted and caused confusion. Many inspired people with good intentions became self-proclaimed “experts” offering opinions based on a narrow focus or financial gain as opposed to years of clinical research or personal long-term experience.  Unsubstantiated information spread via the Internet.

As a result, not only are the Elders treating people in their clinics who are sick from a myriad of diseases and conditions, but they are also treating people who are sick because they failed miserably in their alleged “healing” diets. These people were eating what they presumed was good and healthy, only to find themselves worse off than when they started.

Let us get back to what really works and listen to the valuable lifesaving information Our Elders share with us. They answer over 100 questions in this panel discussion and help you discover the keys to vibrant health, longevity and happiness.

Let’s listen closely as OUR ELDERS SPEAK!

What is Possible?
…when you can clear an old pattern or limiting program anything is possible

In his book, The Honeymoon Effect, Dr Bruce Lipton references Three-in-One Concepts (teachers of the One-Brain™ method) as a way to “Access and Reprogram your sub-conscious mind.” The One-Brain™ method can assist you to move your blocks of limitation, dislodge dis-harmony, and free energy to create different. Though not understood as a linear concept, it has often been described as “the ultimate human tune-up.”

Several weeks ago a guest was waiting to speak to me privately after a Saturday evening Happiness Class where we demonstrated the One-Brain™ method. He was experiencing a lot of heat in his head and upper chest region. He wasn’t sure what to make of it. Especially since all he had done in the class was a simple exercise and repeat the readings with the group as part of the demonstration. I suggested he may be experiencing his own Energy moving. Though I don’t prescribe or diagnose, his skin tone appeared to be much more vibrant and other than being very curious, he was quite happy.

The following day, the same gentleman waited until my sessions were complete and asked to speak to me again. This time he wanted to tell me that after leaving the class and going to his room his whole body started to feel heat – including his lower body and legs. He was trying to figure out what to make of it. Then he said, “I experienced my best nights sleep since being at Hippocrates Health Institute in almost three weeks!” I giggled and said, “Congratulations!”

This man had done one private session and a group Happiness Class. At this point you may be wondering, “What is the point of the story?”

Here’s what I know. Energy can get stuck in the physical body causing us some sort of pain, discomfort or imbalance. When energy is released we call it E-motion – Energy in Motion. Release of E-motion can show or manifest in a variety of ways; tears, perspiring/sweating, heat/hot flashes, and elimination – urination, bowels, yes even regurgitation or vomiting. This previously ‘stuck energy’ is now available for you to bring your Self back into balance.

Months ago, I met a woman who felt she was carrying several extra pounds. She believed the extra baggage was actually pounds of sadness since she had been so consumed with taking care of her disabled children; there was barely time for her to “stuff” it. I had seen her three or four times when she came into a session and could hardly contain her excitement. She proceeded to tell me she had finally been able to cry and for a couple of days allowed her body lovingly to emote at will. How is this possible she wondered? I, on the other hand, was struck by her radiance as if an inner light of joy had been turned on.

Did both of the above experiences come totally from a One-Brain™ session? – Probably not. However, I am confident of the One-Brain™ session’s contribution. With you as the Source of your answers, this method accesses cell memory. When you can get to the “root” that is connected to your automatic response in present time you can NOW change your experience of life. You see, when you can clear an old pattern or limiting program anything is possible!

Want to create a new experience for your Self? Have you tried “everything”? I invite you to re-connect to the You ‘you want to be’. Call The Oasis to schedule a private session or check the calendar for the next Happiness Class or better yet give your Self (3) three days of personal transformation in the experience called the Happy Dance Workshop.

By Sara L. Bronson, One-Brain™ Facilitator

The Happy Dance workshop will be held September 25-27 at Hippocrates Health Institute.

Malabar spinach is a tropical dark leafy green plant with a sweet, juicy taste much like that of its’ more conventional English cousin. It grows well in hot, humid climates such as south Asia, India as well as here in South Florida. In fact, it gets its’ name from the Malabar Coast of India. Malabar spinach prefers fertile, well-drained soil that is kept moist. Malabar spinach is a creeping vine and is best when trellised.

Malabar spinach is a rich source of vitamins and minerals. It is even more nutritious than conventional (English) spinach. For example, 100 grams of Malabar spinach offers:

• 8000 IU vitamin A which is 267% of the RDA.
• 102 mg vitamin C which is 102% of the RDA.
• 140 mg vitamin B6 (folate) which is 35% of the RDA.
• 100 g manganese, 32% of the RDA.
• 1.2 mg iron which is 15% of the recommended daily allowance (RDA)
• 100 g potassium, 11% of the RDA.
• Calcium, magnesium, copper, beta carotene, antioxidants, phytonutrients, and many more!

Here at Hippocrates Health Institute we grow Malabar Spinach in the Organic Garden for the benefit of our guests.

Kids love to see things grow. It is very therapeutic to participate in the propagation of life in the form of gardening. One of the fastest growing plants in the world is wheatgrass. This makes it the perfect plant to grow in homes with children. Not only can they learn to participate in the growing process, but they can also enjoy the enormous benefits gained from drinking this highly nutritious elixir. As a bonus, wheatgrass also provides pure oxygen and cleans the air as it grows, making it one of the best houseplants.

A child’s food choices are established by the eating habits found in the home. Children tend to mimic their parent’s behavior. The best way to influence your children’s eating habits is to lead by example. The most nutritious thing you can consume is freshly juiced wheatgrass. Wheatgrass juice is nature’s finest medicine. It is our signature elixir here at Hippocrates Health Institute. It is the icon in our logo. It is a powerful concentrated liquid nutrient. Two ounces of wheatgrass juice has the nutritional equivalent of five pounds of the best raw organic vegetables! Wheatgrass juice builds your blood and boosts the immune system. It is also a powerful detoxifier, pulling pollution, poisons, stored toxins and heavy metals out of the body.

Some wheatgrass juice simply tastes better than others. Here at Hippocrates, we have the sweetest tasting wheatgrass juice in the world. We are the largest grower and user of wheatgrass in the world. The reason our wheatgrass juice tastes so much different than other wheatgrass juice you may have tried elsewhere is the way that we grow it. It is best to grow wheatgrass indoors, right in your kitchen. The ideal temperature range is between 65 – 75 degrees F and humidity less than 50%. You want plenty of indirect sunlight and plenty of artificial light (full-spectrum is best), but no direct sunlight. At least 1000 lumens are needed. Keep the lights on for about twelve hours a day and turn them off at night. A little bit of gentle air movement is also very helpful.

Grow your wheatgrass with lots of loving intention! Convey plenty of your positive energy to your wheatgrass as it moves through the growing process. Think positive thoughts and speak loving words of gratitude to your grass as it is growing for the healing medicine and lifeforce energy it will convey to you. Play soft, classical music to your plants during daylight hours. Basic steps to growing the best wheatgrass you have ever tasted:

1. Soaking: Place one cup of hard red winter wheat berries in a one-quart, wide mouth Mason jar equipped with a sprouting lid, and soak in fresh filtered water for eight hours. It is best to do this indoors at room temperature.

2. Rinsing: Drain the soak water and rinse the seeds three times over the next 36 hours at 12-hour intervals. Leave the jar upside down between rinses, propped at a 45-degree angle in a dish rack so it can continue to drain. Always use fresh filtered room-temperature water for rinsing.

3. Planting: Place 1⁄2″ of organic potting mix in a 10″ x 10″ tray with holes. Spread the potting mix out to the corners, evenly distributing. Use a second empty tray to lightly compact the potting mix. Using fresh filtered water, moisten the potting mix by spraying heavily with a misting bottle. Spread germinated seeds evenly on top of potting mix. Mist heavily once again and cover with an empty tray. Keep your planting tray propped up using spacers above a drain pan so that it does not sit in its own drain water.

4. Watering: Twice daily, water wheatgrass with fresh clean water until the tray just begins to drip. Replace the empty cover tray after each watering for the first three days; the cover tray is no longer needed after day three.

5. Harvesting: Harvest wheatgrass while it’s young — by the beginning of the jointing stage when the grass blade “splits” (when a second blade grows out from the base of the plant). Harvest the entire tray at this stage to halt the growing process. Cut the grass just above the soil line with a pair of scissors or a sharp knife.

Use an auger-style juicer for wheatgrass. A 10″ x 10″ tray will yield up to nine ounces of juice, which is enough for two people for one day. Each person should drink a two-ounce shot of wheatgrass juice twice a day.

Plant a new tray each day and harvest a completed tray every day. This way you will always have seven trays of wheatgrass growing in various stages.

You can use the small Hydrosol rack, which has seven shelves — one for each day of the week.
The Hippocrates store can provide you with the juicer, Hydrosol racks, trays, seeds, and sprout lids and they will ship directly to you (seeds can only be mailed to US addresses).

Clean your trays, lids, and jars really well between each crop with strong, natural organic dish soap.

While it is always best to juice your wheatgrass right away when it is freshly cut, you can store it in the refrigerator for up to five days. Your whole family will enjoy and experience the amazing benefits of fresh-juiced wheatgrass!
