Recently in western society, there has been an unwavering trend towards vegetarianism. We are finally acknowledging the abundant positives from consuming foods that do not leave behind debris. Further, we have de-intellectualized nutrition and started to respond to our own instincts in this matter. Here at Hippocrates, we have refined the message of vegetarianism and brought us back to our historic and biochemical roots. Now, for several decades we have observed the obvious benefits that all people gain from consuming foods with the three most important elements.

I was never much of a cook. I couldn’t seem to get that timing thing down quite right. Over time, I actually learned to like very well-done, often times totally burnt food, especially toast and pizza. Back then, my smoke detector doubled as my oven timer as well as my “time for dinner” bell, and my mantra to my intimidated friends became, “Oh, just scrape off the burnt part and eat it" it’s not gonna kill ya!” Al» though the firefighters of engine #9 came over to see me many times, my guests usually only came over once; for some reason they always wanted to go out to eat.

In 1975, I began to develop a vision improvement procedure that I called “open focus.” I soon realized that this method affected a lot more than vision. The technique was based on a specific aspect of human behavior that I had observed for many years – behavior that deals with the way in which we habitually approach our life experiences and consequently learn. I noticed that most people were always looking for something specific in life and that in this process they missed everything they weren’t looking for. Since it appears that most of life’s revelations occur when we are not looking for them, I began to realize that the way in which most of us were seeing was only allowing us to view, and thereby experience, a partial reality.

One day during her senior year, Ruth Whalen broke out in hives. She assumed she was allergic to the clams she had eaten earlier in the week and an emergency room doctor injected her with epinephrine (adrenaline). She became psychotic. Unknowingly, she had an anaphylactic response — not to eating clams, but to drinking Coca-Cola. Ruth was allergic to caffeine. Already overstimulated, the adrenaline took her over the edge.

Spontaneous sweats, headaches, full body tension... These are only a few of the many symptoms that comprise anxiety. Today, over 40 million Americans are diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, and what is worse is that the number of undiagnosed people who suffer from anxiety is much higher. While it is common to think that medication is the answer to your anxious symptoms, in reality, it only masks the surface signs of your anxiety and never treats the root causes. Will you get short-term relief from pharmaceuticals? Most likely. However, there is nothing empowering about a pill, and your anxiety will always be there haunting you until you start to deal with it in a healthy and confident way. As a young woman who suffered from a decade-long, severe and chronic anxiety disorder, I, too, believed that medication was the only "cure" for me. When I started incorporating the following practices into my daily routine, though, I saw dramatic results and a significant decrease in my anxiety. Admission, affirmation, meditation and prayer all gave me what no drug ever could, an overwhelming sense of empowerment and true healing for my disorder.
