As Director of the Hippocrates Health Educator Program, it brings me great pleasure to introduce Max Tuck, from the UK, who graduated as a Hippocrates Health Educator in 2006. Max has had a busy 12 months! In 2011, she published her first printed book, Top 10 Raw Food Tips for Osteoporosis, for which Brian Clement wrote the foreword, and in February 2012, she summited Kilimanjaro, the highest free-standing mountain in the world.
Survival is an increasingly touchy subject in a world in which climate change is becoming more evident. People who live in areas where they rarely doubted their safety are now at risk from flood, forest fire and famine.
When you think of storing food for survival what types of food do you think about? Canned food? MREs (Meals Ready to Eat, given to military troops) or maybe the freeze-dried foods popularized by astronauts? If these were your answers, than you are in-line with common thinking about food for survival.
There is certainly some magical technology available, not only in the science of youthing but also the extended longevity of the Methuselah Age. Imagine developing an innate genius mentality integrated with a Buddha personality, all within an Olympian body. Our potential surrounds us.
Once upon time there was a frail little boy and girl who were bully magnets.
I saw a bumper sticker the other day that read: “I am a cancer survivor”, and I thought of my mother, not because she had cancer, but because she was a survivor — a Holocaust survivor. In the heart of Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia, she hid in a basement for years, relying on the charity of her protectors, and living by her wits when she went out looking for food or contact with other family members. One of her brothers was fighting with the Resistance Movement, headquartered in the surrounding woods; the other was in a forced labor camp with her parents. My mother didn’t see herself as a hero for surviving, but I did. Here’s one of my favorite stories of hers.
Changing your diet per the season is something I highly recommend. I believe it is one of the four components of a successful nutrition program.
When I work in a major hospital in Toronto and a cottage hospital outside of the city, I am often disappointed by what I notice as a trend among young people coming into the emergency rooms. I see this only during the winter months as it does not happen
It all began in October 1997 while living in New Jersey. It was there that three members of my family got Lyme Disease from tick bites, all with varying symptoms and degrees of illness. My quest for a cure encompassed 10 years, three states, 11 different doctors and eventually had a happy ending at Hippocrates Health Institute.
Nothing is more hopeful than talking to a child about the future of our planet. When we speak to kids, they engage our imaginations and reignite our own dreams, bypassing the limitations and hurdles adults can often perceive.
Our planet is in peril, and we along with it. If the ecosystem collapses as some scientists predict, we humans will be the first to perish. Just turning off the electricity brings us to our knees. While awaiting our Eco-Armageddon, we bandy around many solutions, some during conversations at our heavily laden dinner tables. According to the pleas of vegans and vegetarians, one solution lurks in the very food upon our tables: By being vegetarian, not only do we spare the lives of farm animals, we also save the world!
Survival is “a continuation of life” as defined by the dictionary.
I believe it is now possible to achieve a society where people would be able to live longer, healthier, and more meaningfully productive lives. In such a society, the measure of success would be based upon the fulfillment of oneâ€™s individual pursuits rather than the acquisition of wealth, property and power. Although many of the concepts presented here may appear as unattainable goals, all of the ideas are based upon known scientific principles.
