For two decades I have been struggling with severe rheumatic symptoms (arthritis, inflammation, agonizing pain) at irregular intervals. One doctor after another was unable to find the cause for my disease and the only diagnosis I was ever given was some issue with a spine disc in my lower back. As a result, I underwent two surgeries in that region in the ‘90s. Unfortunately, these major invasive operations did not alleviate any symptoms. Subsequently, a specialist recommended an artificial disc replacement, a surgery I decided against.

…I became a vegan with a food intake of 70 – 80% raw. I grew my own sprouts and wheatgrass and started to exercise regularly (calisthenics, mostly outdoors). Additionally, I made sure to avoid any kind of negativity and trained myself to focus on the nicer things in life. Today I no longer watch TV, stopped reading newspapers and ended some toxic relationships.

Now I am 43 years old, symptom free and no longer taking any medications. But I was still not satisfied. My inner voice piped up again to ratchet up my efforts. So I decided to go to Hippocrates Health Institute (HHI) to learn anything I could about self-recovery.

Hippocrates is a very peaceful place full of incredible and powerful people. I had a wonderful time and received a thorough education about self-recovery. It will take me some time to understand and digest the whole value of my stay. However, what I know already is that this was one of the best decisions of my life.
