The green juice and the wheatgrass served daily at Hippocrates gave me incredible amounts of energy. These drinks were so satisfying that often at lunch and dinner times I was not hungry. Adapting to raw food was tough until the last week when my body finally began to appreciate their enormous benefits.
In three weeks I lost 17 pounds. When I returned home to Boston, I started growing my own wheatgrass and sunflower sprouts and continued to eat mostly raw organic food. After 5 months, I lost a total of 50 pounds and felt better than I have since I was in my 20’s.
Loss of excess weight is just one of many health benefits I received from my time at Hippocrates. I had been trying every possible method to lose weight. Nothing ever worked because I always craved bad food. Wheatgrass stopped all my cravings for sugar or other bad foods and instead I craved only raw healthy food. It’s a miracle food with amazing health benefits.
I was surprised to see so many people at Hippocrates with problems far worse than mine. I feel very fortunate that I did not wait until I fell ill to learn about the Lifestyle. Now, I understand the importance of being educated and taking responsibility for your life so that you can avoid disease. My advice to all, young and/or mature healthy people, is that the Life Change Program is for you. If you want to remain healthy, live the way we were meant to and gain vibrant energy. Living food is the answer.
Thank you Hippocrates for helping me heal and renew and for providing me with the tools to be a healthy, living food vegan for the rest of my life.
