About Hippocrates

More than a half century ago, visionary and humanitarian Ann Wigmore developed a simple concept first voiced by Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, nearly 2,500 years ago: "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food." Together with the brilliant Viktoras Kulvinskas, Ms. Wigmore nurtured this seed, creating a comprehensive institute that encourages people to draw from their vast inner resources to transform the quality of their health and lives. The commitment to this inspired truth is embodied in Hippocrates Health Institute, a non-profit organization jointly directed by the caring hands of Drs. Brian and Anna Maria Clement since 1980.

Hippocrates Health Institute (HHI) flourishes within a lush, tropical 50-acre setting in West Palm Beach, Florida. Under the guidance of a knowledgeable and compassionate team, guests from all over the world benefit from health and nutritional counseling, non-invasive remedial and youth-enhancing therapies, state of the art spa services, inspiring talks on life principles and a tantalizing daily buffet of enzyme-rich, organic meals.

The goal of the institute is to assist people in taking responsibility for their lives and to help them internalize and actualize an existence free from premature aging, disease and needless pain. Good health is our most prized possession, generating a positive mindset of confidence, enthusiasm, strength and joyfulness that can trigger a life of optimum achievement. Such vibrant health does not thrive by luck or by chance. Like all things of great value, it must be tended and nurtured with care. This process can be insurmountable and intimidating without the proper guidance.

The Hippocrates Life Transformation Program makes this a comfortable transition. The medical team and professional care servers support guests as they transform their lives in an encouraging environment, along with others who are recovering from similar challenges. HHI alumni are people from all walks of life who have benefited from the institute's blue­print. They share stories of recovery that are considered miraculous by some, but are actually quite typical of people who have embraced the Hippocrates lifestyle. After graduating, alumni are afforded the privilege of periodic, lifelong, written counsel.

What our guests say

Hope can't be manufactured from external sources. Instead, it has to develop from within. Hippocrates helps to nurture one's ability to manifest the strength to hope not by making any promises, but by gently educating one into making substantial life changes that allow the body to heal.
