Joda Cook Didgeridoo Vibrational Sound Therapist at Hippocrates Health Institute

Didgeridoo Vibrational Sound Therapy

Didgeridoo Vibrational Sound Therapy

Vibrational Sound Therapy is based on the theory that illnesses are a result of energy blockages on some level. All healthy organs vibrate at healthy frequencies and when disease or illnesses develop the vibrational frequency of the organs also change. Restoring organ frequencies back to a healthy state allows energy to flow freely and facilitates the body to bring about health and wellness.

At Hippocrates Health Institute Vibrational Sound Therapy is employed as part of a comprehensive holistic health program where optimum nutrition from a raw living food diet forms the main essential role of immune system building. It is an optional therapy that forms an integral part of Hippocrates’s signature Life Transformation Program.

Joda Cook Didgeridoo Vibrational Sound Therapist

Hippocrates Health Institute vibrational sound therapist Joda Cook has experience in this field of complementary therapy for over 20 years. Yoda specializes in Didgeridoo Vibrational Sound Therapy using the instrument to generate soothing vibrations that have achieved some remarkable results. He begins his session by concentrating over the hearth chakra before moving the vibrations around the body, returning back to the heart at the end of the session. The instrument is held very close to the body without touching, and the vibrations produced vary in tone from low to high vibrational tones. As the vibrations enter the body they act on the physical cells, as well as the ethereal energies of the chakras and energy meridians removing energy blockages and relaxing the muscles, easing tension and stress.

The Didgeridoo is an ancient instrument that produces a range of vibrational frequencies known for relieving stress and anxiety, reducing fatigue, releasing emotions and energizing the meridian system. It is also associated for a number of physical health benefits including easing muscular joint pains, arthritic pain, back and neck pain and overall boosting energy and vitality.

Yoda sees himself as a conduit that continues to derive knowledge and inspiration as he develops his skills, and all the time incorporating this new information into his program.

Man-Made Osteoporosis

Osteoperosis leading to Fracture

Osteoporosis leading to Fracture

Osteoporosis is a disease that is not only treatable without the need for drugs, but it is also preventable! In the United States more women are killed by osteoporosis every year than the combined deaths from cancer of the breast, cervix and uterus. In the USA today twenty-five million people have been diagnosed with osteoporosis, and it is estimated that as high as nine out of ten people in America are at risk of developing osteoporosis having sub-optimal bone density. At Hippocrates Health Institute we frequently encounter guests suffering from this debilitating and unnecessary disease and have witnessed remarkable changes in those adopting our wellness enhancing lifestyle.

Osteoporosis develops when bones lose mass, weaken and become prone to fracture. Under a microscope such bones appear ‘porous’ hence the name Osteoporosis. This disease often goes un-diagnosed until one suffers a fracture. In the US there are over 1.5 million such fractures each year from osteoporosis, with hip fractures accounting for almost 20%. A quarter of all hip fracture patients end up in a nursing care home unable to walk, and another quarter will die within three months from health conditions related to the fracture.

Osteoporosis occurs when bone mass loss is accelerated and our bodies are not growing enough new bone to maintain healthy bone mass. Our bones are living tissues and each year we replace about 20% with new tissue mass. As we grow older we lose bone mass, but if we have built strong bones in our youth, this won’t matter. Accelerated bone mass loss occurs when our diet is over acidic causing calcium leeching to occur. The most acidic foods happen to be the foods of the standard American diet, namely meat, dairy and caffeine. But refined sugars, salt and phosphorous can also play a significant role, as we shall see.

Animal Protein

Animal protein is highly acidic and most Americans obtain about 70% from animal sources. On top of that we consume on average 100g of protein a day, that’s two to four times what’s necessary for health. Animal protein metabolizes to form strong acids in the body, and the body reacts by leeching calcium from our bones in an attempt to neutralize and balance acidity. Unfortunately consuming more calcium does not solve this problem. Studies conducted on Alaskan Inuits who have the highest rates of osteoporosis in the world, found that they consume more than twice the calcium than the average American, together with twice the amount of animal protein. The excess calcium consumption does not help, which leaves the problem pointing to excess animal protein. The Hippocrates Health Institute living food diet provides alkaline proteins in amounts perfectly suited for optimum health.

dairyDairy

Americans consume more than 96% of all the world’s dairy production from a population representing only 4% of the world. If milk and cheese were good for us, why do we have almost the weakest bones in the world? Although cows milk contains more than four times that of human milk, its not bioavailable to the body and we cannot absorb it as much. This is due to the fact that milk is low in magnesium necessary for calcium absorption. Cows milk is also high in acidic protein that the body counteracts by leeching calcium from our bones. We end up with a net loss of calcium! And we are told to feed milk to our children so they will have healthy bones when they grow older??

Refined Sugars

Refined Sugar

Refined Sugar

Sugar is added to almost all processed food from ketchup to sodas, and the average American person intakes about 150 pounds of refined sugar a year! But how does this contribute to bone damage? Well, excessive refined sugars actually create acidic blood conditions similar to meat and dairy! This occurs because refined sugars are absorbed quickly into cellular glucose, but is lacking in oxygen resulting in partial oxidation that form acids! And as we learned already acids cause calcium loss from our bones. To make matters worse sugar causes magnesium loss, which is necessary for bone formation. The Hippocrates Health Institute diet cuts out all refined sugars producing a healthy environment to counteract many modern lifestyle diseases including osteoporosis.

Salt

Salt

Salt

It’s easily possible to lose up to 20% bone mass in 10 years from just 5000mg of daily salt consumption! Many Americans consume from 8,000 to 10,000mg of sodium a day compared to our ancestors 70mg per day! Every 5000mg of sodium causes 23mg loss of calcium in the urine, and this equates to 2.5% bone mass loss per year.

Phosphorous

This mineral in excessive quantities inhibits calcium absorption by reacting with it to form an insoluble compound, and also metabolizes to form phosphoric acid, which the body deals with by taking calcium from the bones to neutralize acidity. Excessive phosphorous is contained in meat, and soda drinks that have added phosphoric acid.

Along with a healthy diet, exercise plays an essential role in bone growth and reversing bone loss. Control studies have showed bone mass increasing in people who exercise compared to bone mass loss in a control group not exercising.

The ideal lifestyle to treat and prevent osteoporosis combines exercise with non-acidic bioavailable forms of calcium found in green vegetables such as broccoli, chard, kale, and whole grains and beans to name a few. Also important is vitamin D, which is the main intestinal regulator for calcium absorption. Vitamin D is best sourced from skin contact with sunlight. Other important vitamins necessary to absorb calcium are magnesium, folic acid, vitamin C, and vitamin B6. All of these can be adequately sourced from a diet rich in fruit and vegetables, grains and beans.

Preventing and reversing osteoporosis – conclusion

Healthy green vegetablesFirstly prevent osteoporosis by reducing ‘calcium loss’, most effectively achieved by cutting meat and dairy from your diet, and drastically reduce sugar, salt, phosphorous and caffeine intake. Secondly increase your intake of calcium by consuming foods that contain bioavailable calcium that don’t create acidic conditions, along with nutrients that support bone mass growth, such as manganese, boron, vitamin D, vitamin C.

The plant-based diet encouraged at Hippocrates Health Institute together with adequate exercise that forms the basis of the Hippocrates’s Life Transformation program is the best way to accomplish both prevention and reversal of osteoporosis. This disease therefore need not exist, as indeed is the case in countries and societies where traditionally meat and dairy are seldom consumed.

Getting Back to the Basics of Green

Hippocrates Health Institute Sprouts

Sprouts at Hippocrates Health Institute

Presently we are in midst of a global green trend. Everywhere we hear the mantra, be green, eat green, live green, etc. While it might seems like something new to many people, in essence “green” simply means living naturally. At Hippocrates Health Institute “green” encompasses true super foods from a multitude of natural sources: from the ground there is vegetation, sea vegetables abundantly found in the oceans, and in fresh water in the form of algae. In sourcing optimum nutrition Hippocrates Health Institute embraces the consumption of wheatgrass juice, sunflower and pea sprouts and juice, sprouts, dark leafy greens, algae, and seaweed, much of which is organically grown, locally on Hippocrates’ 50-acre campus.

Humans as mammals are designed by nature to consume vegetables. As mammals go, the majority consumes a raw diet of grasses and leafy greens. Humans are the only mammal that cooks its food and one of only a few mammals that eat other animals. The most common defense to eating meat is for its protein content. In truth the best quality proteins to sustain health comes from the vegetable kingdom in the form of sprouted beans and seeds, nuts, algae, grains and grass (wheatgrass juice), which we encourage at Hippocrates Health Institute as part of our wellness program. In fact approximately 85% of mammals consume only greens, and they tend to be the largest and strongest in the animal kingdom, and where do they get their protein? Plants!

Hippocrates Health Institute first discovered the power of greens, in particular grass 50 years ago when its founder Ann Wigmore was searching for a means to overcome a chronic illness. Ms. Wigmore observed how Cows obtained all their muscle, strength and power solely from grass. Ann returned to perfect health after some weeks of chewing on grass and spitting out the fibers. She began to experiment on different types of grasses and found that wheatgrass while providing optimal nutrition also tasted the most palatable.

Hippocrates Health Institute Wheatgrass

Wheatgrass at Hippocrates Health Institute

Since its founding over 50 years ago Hippocrates Health Institute has learned a great deal of information into the healthful properties of wheatgrass and raw vegetables. Chlorophyll, which is abundant in all dark leafy greens, increases the body’s blood quality allowing more uptake of oxygen into the cells, and since plants also contain large quantities of oxygen, we can absorb it more effectively and in greater quantity. Nowadays with oxygen levels becoming less in the air we breathe, especially in cities (where most of the worlds’ populations live), we all need to find ways to increase oxygen levels and oxygen quality. Oxygen plays an important role in our cells, reducing the risk of cancers and virus infection.

As part of our Life Transformation Program at Hippocrates Health Institute we encourage the consumption of wheatgrass juice, green sprouts, and green juices that promotes ones body to self-regulate its state of wellness. Complementary to these super foods Hippocrates also supports internal cleansing (detoxing and alkalizing) and exercise. Hippocrates Health Institute promotes a lifestyle where the foundation of your diet consists of plants. Green plants first receive energy from the sun giving them life, and when we consume these living foods we benefit from this ‘living vibrational energy’ together with pure oxygen. Our cells are literally craving for clean oxygen, so go ahead and treat yourself to leafy greens, wheatgrass and sprouts today! You can simply start by growing your own at home, it’s that easy! Learn to listen to your heart, as it contains more answers than your head. Love deeply and love yourself, and remember – it’s all about the greens!

Lifeforce & Longevity

The five fundamentals of a being truly happy and content, and living longer are positive thoughts, emotionally fulfilling relationships, living foods, exercise and spiritual completeness. For a number of years now at Hippocrates Health Institute two particular issues have been paramount in the minds of many guests:

wheatgrass (2)1. How to bring about change in ones health from knowledge to manifesting tangible results.

2. How to extend life expectancy and live longer.

Besides the clinical research we conduct at Hippocrates Health Institute we also continue to witness on a daily basis the innate ability of people to transform their state of wellness into a fulfilling and satisfying life, having being firmly in the grips of emotional and physical disease. This remarkable quality of humans is something we have been privileged to be part of for decades at Hippocrates, and provides continual inspiration for each and every transformed life, which serves to motivate us to explore further the ever-changing field of effective complimentary therapies.

Our primary objective at Hippocrates Health Institute is to provide people with the most effective tools that empower each individual to unlock their own maximum potential for wellness. Once people embrace responsibility for their journey back to health, these tools are almost always successful.

At Hippocrates Health Institute we are often asked why our focus is not more on weight loss and longevity, and we always point out that these naturally occur when one embarks on the Hippocrates lifestyle of living foods. We do however wonder what aspect of human nature are these inquiries related to? After some time contemplating on this we began to understand that people tend to prefer focusing on one area at a time. Based on this finding we began researching two areas of interest – the incredible transformative power of the Hippocrates Life-Change Program, and the effects it has had on extending life expectancy.

Hippocrates-Health-InstitutesFor over 60 years Hippocrates Health Institute have witnessed hundreds of thousands of people renewing, revolutionizing, and even saving their own lives through tapping into and enhancing their Lifeforce; the essence and source of all creation. To learn more about Lifeforce and our finding at Hippocrates Health Institute, please refer to Brian Clements’ book “Lifeforce”. Of equal if not more importance than the foods we eat, is the power of positive thoughts; a subject that the book Lifeforce spends a great dealing with, and a critical component of health.

With regards to extending life expectancy, our researchers at Hippocrates Health Institute sourced quite a lot of scientific information supporting the connection of healthy living to longevity. The scientific findings from all over the world concurred with we at Hippocrates Health Institute have personally witnessed in our many years of slowing the unnatural process of aging. From the knowledge we have attained at Hippocrates on how living foods slows the aging process, we concluded that all physical and mental functioning operates through electric frequency. Extending life is a matter of creating and unbroken, continuous wave of positive electrical activity in our thoughts and throughout the physical body. Basically when we think and act positively, and consume living foods we are charging our Lifeforce, and by maintaining this vibrancy is all areas of life, we flourish. Disease and decay therefore become prevalent when we lack these powerful frequencies. At Hippocrates Health Institute we have developed programs that enable you live with more integrity and maximum vitality and potential for wellness.

This should come as good news for us – the answer to living a healthy and long life exists within you. By tapping into your Lifeforce with a positive and committed approach you can achieve longevity and peace. At Hippocrates Health Institute we believe everybody has infinite potential to relish life rather than relinquish it. By harmonizing with nature and following nature’s abundantly evident patterns, we strengthen our capacity for love and strengthen our spirit, fuelling our ability to thrive in spite of all odds and prevailing forces. You have the power and wisdom today to passionately create a promising tomorrow for yourself, your friend and family, and for the global community.

Creating Our Life Day-by-Day

An intriguing and puzzling question we often encounter at Hippocrates Health Institute involves the nature of personal choice, and individual potential for longevity. Moving through life we have the option to explore new endeavors and either absorb or reject these experiences. This is the process of learning, and the essence of learning involves an open mind and the ability to choose. However when we are not open to options and experiences we become afraid to choose and learning

Healthy Living Education

becomes greatly diminished. At Hippocrates Health Institute learning is seen as an expansion of oneself that provides a vast and potentially endless number of productive selections from which to choose. Hippocrates pursue ongoing research and the application of knowledge from different therapies, applied nutrition and psychological exploration, unlocking the remarkable potential that we posses to create unlimited insight and clarity.

What we have learned at Hippocrates Health Institute from applying and analyzing the principals of life-changing activity is that there is no one way to reach the ultimate desired outcome. Throughout life while pursuing ones life goals there are many rewarding and enriching events that cumulatively may be more important than the actual end result itself. Being constantly aware, with an open heart will certainly help us to appreciate each event, and be grateful for all of our encounters. Too often we focus on the results and outcome, rather than the passing moments that may indeed be the very pinnacles of our existence.

One of our past guests at Hippocrates Health Institute, a middle-aged lady who had always feared close relationships and intimacy, reflected on her upbringing with her stern and estranged, yet loving parents who had appeared to have distorted her sense of normal communication. She had been married three times and each husband remarkably had the same issues of speaking negatively and disrespecting her over and over. She did not feel these repeat situations had anything to do with her. At Hippocrates this is seen as denial, something we have seen with many people in similar situations, but she denied this applied to her. She maintained the problems were with her husbands and not in her ability to choose wisely. After completing the Life Transformation Program at Hippocrates Health Institute, she came to the understanding that every day of our life is purely created by each of us, and it is up to us to learn, grow and change from our experiences. As we learn from our past experiences and understand how we created them, we do not have to recreate them again.

green-juice1At Hippocrates Health Institute we believe it is essential to nurture ourselves throughout each experience and at every level if we are to fully enjoy a long, healthy and fulfilling life. One must have a clear reason to live, and an ultimate and necessary goal if one is to achieve an enlightened and enriched grand age. Some of the tools necessary to achieve this are part of what is provided at Hippocrates Health Institute: nutrients, exercise, positive attitude, pure thoughts and spiritual openness. While none of these tools alone are adequate, together they form a powerful basis for longevity when used passionately everyday with each personal mission. And through each reward our reason for living will become more apparent. Hippocrates Health Institute encourages you to tap into unlimited powers and vital energies of body-mind and utilize them each day. By discovering what it is you are passionate about in life and moving within them every day, you will eventually become fully engaged in all aspects of your world, ultimately doing it with ease, health, and happiness, living a long and fruitful life.

New Approaches to Wellness

New approaches to wellness and restoring health have always been a major part of the Hippocrates Health Institute’s healthcare system. While many healthcare providers offer information that compromises healing, Hippocrates Health Institute strives to lead people away Life Transformation Programfrom negative ideals and into the clear light of their brilliant potential by renewing acknowledgement that ‘normality’ is omnipresent and available.

Time and time again we experience guests completing the 3-week Life Transformation Program at Hippocrates Health Institute with liberated minds, after revealing the true healing power they possess inside. Stemming from this realization and enlightened commitment to transformation, the abundant energy necessary to relax and release disease is readily available in abundance.

Over the past 60 years Hippocrates health Institute has had the great pleasure of witnessing many thousands of people surrender to the notion of “health is normality,” not “disease is imminent”, as they brought about their own health and all share one common trait: they did not empower illness; they disavowed illness by accepting themselves. What a gift it is to hear someone with a chronic ‘incurable’ disease say, “This is not going to beat me.” Unfortunately however most often the afflicted become analytical and pile more and more negativity into their perception of their malady. Before you know it they have worked their way into a corner by believing there is no hope.

Recently one of the guests at Hippocrates Health Institute that was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and multiple tumors in her liver reversed her concern in just two months. When she first arrived at Hippocrates she never talked about her problem. She only asked questions about how the tools we offer at Hippocrates would help her. She had a proactive and confident commitment to her ability to restore health. When time came for her graduation after completing the Life Transformation Program, the guest addressed the group by stating that she was already well and had no doubt that the next time she came to visit Hippocrates Health Institute, it will be for holiday like so many others do.

Brian Clement

Hippocrates Health Institute Director Brian Clement

Over the years at Hippocrates Health Institute an ever-growing number of people choose life over death. This outstanding, unique group stands in the way of the status quo, challenging it with their living example. How is it that the majority still gives in to disease? Evidence has shown that when one disdains their life they are willing to let go of it. We must remember that rather than focusing on the drugs, herbs, vitamins or the food, our first priority must be ‘a full-time job’ to find the purposeful and passionate life for which we were born. Once we have embraced that purpose, there is no doubt that we will render the abundance of energy, spiritual resolve and biological strength to abolish disease. Here at Hippocrates Health Institute this is not just a philosophy, it is what we have seen in action every day for the last six decades. “Helping People Help Themselves” is not our mission statement because we like the sound of it; it is grounded in grand experience and spectacular results.

Find yourself and you will find happiness, health and prosperity. At Hippocrates Health Institute our most important asset is a powerful commitment to happiness. Wellness and joy are synonymous; you cannot attain one without the other. How will you act when facing illness? Can happiness be manifested? It can, and much more easily than you would assume. Go back chronologically through your life and select the events and times when you were the most joyous. Ask yourself what ingredients created this reality. Now, employ those same tools in creating a new reality that brings you joy. This same reality will also heal what ails you.
