During the Russian space station ,program experiments were made studying the effects of recycled water on the cosmonauts. They found that this water was not adequately hydrating them. Further research showed that any type of filtration or purification of H20 was diminishing some quality related to it being properly absorbed by the cells. On the contrary, water taken directly from natural sources, i.e., a stream, spring or lake, hydrated the body effectively. They explored the difference. The scientists proceeded to identify that the quality that allowed cells to better absorb the water from natural sources was an energetic component; they termed it "hydro-plasma."

It is hard to believe that a country with wealth and technological know-how would choose to poison its food supply. Unfortunately, that is just what is happening in the United States today, according to food-safety activists opposing the use of pesticides in food production. And despite the growing awareness of the connection between pesticides and cancer, the situation is getting worse not better. Pesticide use has more than doubled since Rachel Carson published Silent Spring in 1962. Despite efforts by the government and food industry to alleviate fears, polls show that more than 90% of Americans are worried about agri-chemicals in their food and water supplies.

As a society, we are taught since birth to be consumers. We’re always on the lookout for the next great product. Electronics have to be smaller and more feature-packed. Automobiles have to be faster and sleeker. This mentality carries over to the arena of health and wellness as well, with a constant barrage of new food products. Often shipped across the planet from remote locations, these “superfoods” are touted for their wondrous health benefits, which are typically hyped up as “30 times greater than this” or “80 times more concentrated than that.”

Natural Hygiene is an early form of Raw Foodism, and at one time it was the major force in the raw foods movement. Natural Hygeine introduced many important concepts to the raw foods world, including: food combining, water fasting, mono-meals (one food at a time), enervation and toxemia. It was a foundational philosophy that established that what we eat has an incredible impact on on health, and that changing your diet to whole foods Vegan foods with mostly or all raw foods could reverse disease.

In the distant past, humanity learned to grow food from the land, sharing and passing down this knowledge through the centuries. A common practice was preparing part of the harvest as seeds for planting the following year. The exceptional quality of certain seeds over others was progressively identified and naturally propagated. The 20th century would bring about some important changes. Through genetic studies, a handful of scientists succeeded in creating new species of wheat, corn and other grains.

Synergy occurs when a combination of substances work so well together that the benefits exceed what one would expect. This is what our nutritional experts were looking to achieve as they worked to develop a new, high powered supplement.

This century will elevate nutrition to a place of prominence in health restoration. Led by a pioneering international group of orthomolecular doctors, there is mounting research and growing evidence that nutrients that build the strength of one’s anatomy are, ultimately, the best way to prevent and heal disease. Hippocrates Institute stands as a perfect example supporting this evolving science. The time has come for us to use common sense and once again realize that before modern science existed, the inherent tapestry of life was woven with simple, natural processes including the consumption of nutritious food.

Funny how we learn new things; some» times the most unlikely situation becomes a new research project. Sitting around the lunch table at Hippocrates the other day, Sam Sheppard, our media director here, announced that he needed an article about coconuts for this issue. I said, “I know nothing of coconuts,” and he said “Well, great! You should research and write about it!”

Phyto-Nutrients are the most significant finding in nutritional history. We would venture to say that if you put all other discoveries together this discovery would dwarf them. These disease-preventing compounds that naturally occur in whole unprocessed and unheated food reveal the magnificence of nature’s genius. We now know that nature planned for us a way to recover from the poor lifestyle choices that we were going to make. Further, these phyto-chemicals are otherwise known as phyto-nutrients, phyto-foods or even netraceuticals and they contain health building elements which enable your immune system to strengthen your overall body/mind. We will review many of these nutrients and where you derive them from.

The importance of many nutrients were discovered quite by accident when dietary shortages led to physical symptom. In the days of the roman empire, soldiers stationed along the Rhine River suffered from loose teeth and bleeding gums when they ate the local fare. Then they discovered an herb called sorrel - that would heal their gum problems. Century's later British sailors suffered from the same symptoms until citrus was added to their shipboard staples. It wasn't until much later that scientists recognized that vitamin C was the substance for healing their symptoms of scurvy.
