Hippocrates has been a providing, immersion-wellness retreat, focusing on the organic plant-based, vegan diet and natural approaches to wellness, for more than 60 years.


More than a half century ago, visionary and humanitarian Ann Wigmore developed a simple concept first voiced by Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, nearly 2,500 years ago: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Together, with the brilliant Viktoras Kulvinskas, Ms. Wigmore nurtured this seed, creating a comprehensive institute that encourages people to draw from their vast inner resources to transform the quality of their health and lives. The commitment to this inspired truth is embodied in Hippocrates Health Institute, a non-profit organization, jointly directed by the caring hands of Brian and Anna Maria Clement since 1980.


Hippocrates Health Institute (HHI) flourishes within a lush, tropical 50-acre setting in West Palm Beach, Florida. Under the guidance of a knowledgeable and compassionate team, guests from all over the world benefit from health and nutritional counseling, non-invasive remedial and youth-enhancing therapies, state of the art spa services, inspiring talks on life principles and a tantalizing daily buffet of enzyme-rich, organic meals.


The goal of the institute is to assist people in taking responsibility for their lives and to help them internalize and actualize an existence free from premature aging, disease and needless pain. Good health is our most prized possession, generating a positive mindset of confidence, enthusiasm, strength and joyfulness that can trigger a life of optimum achievement. Such vibrant health does not thrive by luck or by chance. Like all things of great value, it must be tended and nurtured with care. This process can be insurmountable and intimidating without the proper guidance.


The Hippocrates Life Transformation Program makes this a comfortable transition. The medical team and professional care servers support guests as they transform their lives in an encouraging environment, along with others who are recovering from similar challenges. HHI alumni are people from all walks of life who have benefited from the Institute’s blue­print. They share stories of recovery that are considered miraculous by some, but are actually quite typical of people who have embraced the Hippocrates Lifestyle™ . After graduating, alumni are afforded the privilege of periodic, life-long, written counsel.

The Hippocrates Culture

When you take a position at Hippocrates, you aren’t just working a job, you are contributing to a greater mission. We have seen our protocol of the raw, vegan diet, paired with holistic therapies, change hundreds of thousands of lives for more than 60 years. We are passionate about making the world a better and healthier place. That being said, everyday isn’t always green juice and rainbows. We have guests that sometimes come to our property with challenging health conditions. All of our guests go through a detox process during their first week of the program. This means that sometimes you will encounter challenging situations that require patience, a high level of compassion, and critical thinking skills to find and achieve a resolution. We find that the people who do best with a Hippocrates career path are those who are personally dedicated to a holistic lifestyle and passionate about helping people achieve a better quality of life. For those who seek to grow within our company, we offer many options for internal promotion. We do our best to give you a path within your skill-set that will lead to continued growth and accomplishment for yourself as a professional.
