Due to our poor choices from childhood through adulthood, most of us need to recover from physical and emotional issues. These have thrown us out of balance and caused disease or semi-disease to bloom. Many of us do not even acknowledge that we need to improve our condition, since, in our minds we have reduced what health is, to “not being diagnosed with a disease”.   We take for granted that the aches and pains, confusion and fears are all merely the standard fare of living. We must once again recapture the inner strength and vitality of TRUE HEALTH, which is our BIRTH-RIGHT.

Jennifer's enormous talent lies in photographing people and capturing the spirit of their personality in print. But her high-stress, competitive profession exacted a steep price on her emotional and physical health. She first came to Hippocrates in 1987 and has since been back 13 times. When not clicking away at her camera, she devotes much of her time to more soul-satisfying pursuits which include spending time with her husband and twin daughters, and enhancing her deep interest in spirituality.

At first glance, Nutripuncture is a surprising way of doing acupuncture with homeopathic pills instead of needles. This is a very convenient way that provides everyone the opportunity to restore the energy/vital currents of their body by themselves. In January 2001 the “dark field analysis” (a live blood test) was performed by Anna Maria Clement at Hippocrates Health Institute, Florida. This revealing test showed immediate and substantial results the body had in the response to Nutripuncture.

Nice girls don’t get angry. For generations women have been raised with this message, and it appears that many women who binge-eat probably have struggled too hard to learn that lesson. According to psychiatrist W. Stewart Agras, who recently completed a study with colleagues at Stanford University School of Medicine, “Women with this eating disorder hide their anger and have difficulty expressing it.” (The 45 women in Agras’ study were substantially overweight, not the type to purge after binging.)

The skin, our body\'s largest organ, is an organ of elimination. This makes sauna use a vital tool for detoxification. Along with sebum and sweat, both chemical and heavy metal toxins are excreted through the skin, along with various other waste materials. The sauna is a detoxification tool that utilizes these eliminative functions by inducing a state of mild hyperthermia. That simply means that the sauna raises our body temperature enough to induce sweating, thereby stimulating a deep cleansing process.

When I heard Hippocrates had moved just a few miles from my dental office, I was eager to visit, I toured the facility and met the Director. I was immediately taken by his knowledge and under­standing of health, Brian educated me on methods to detoxify the mouth as an important aspect of healing. The bond was made, and I have been contributing to the education of the guests at Hippocrates since that first meeting. I am an alumnus of Hippocrates, having spent three wonderful and busy weeks living as much of the grand experience as possible. What I have learned there has improved my health. I have also seen many of the guests make major improvements in their health.

From the very first life on this planet there has always been a pattern of development based upon community. Although we think individually, we need others to encourage us, guide us, and most importantly understand us. When one observes modern life there is a gaping hole in the center of this necessary pattern. More isolated than ever, sitting in front of our televisions and computers we are rapidly reducing our contact with others. Not only does this cause a dramatic sense of loss, it also reduces our abilities to communicate with others. Ripple effects begin through this estrangement and, at times, can become chronic to such a point that one may become antisocial and anti-others.

Hippocrates stands for and teaches clean living in all areas of life, and that includes a wonderful and mysterious commodity: telling the truth. Which, being so basic, ought to be easy, but isn’t. It takes attentiveness and courage to be honest, and maybe even more difficult, it takes innocence.

In our quest for heroes, there is none held in higher esteem than our sports figures. Throughout the world football players, baseball players, etc. are our children’s mentors. As grown adults trying to maintain our youth and energy, we become dedicated fans and admire the current economic advantage of being a sports star. In our local junior and minor leagues, many parents use their children as cures for their lack of ability and absence of success as children. As we recently observed, this often comes to blows and can even result in death.

In mind/body medicine, we view a person’s emotional status as important, if not more important, than their physical status. We know that how someone is feeling has everything to do with their physical prognosis - their energy for healing, their pain level and long term survival. In mind/body medicine, we believe a person’s emotions reveal their state of consciousness. Disturbances in the bio-energy field reflect disturbances in one’s consciousness. These disturbances precede illness.

In recent years, the focus of anatomical studies have been upward at the organ we call the brain. What is most surprising is that in the past, we have so misunderstood its Function and purpose. Now regularly. With deeper and more relevant research, we are discovering phenomenal Facts about this harbor of consciousness. With 81/2 times more cells packed into this little powerhouse than the rest of our body, we must ask how much this dynamo really can do! We know from hundreds of thousands of magnetic resonance imagery (MRI) that the average person uses less than 4 percent of his or her brain. It is no wonder that we are still struggling and potentially creating an end to our own species. We cannot allow this power to create exceptional reality - this fallow 96 percent of potential - to go to waste. We must now honor, respect and develop the mind that resides in this anatomical genius.
