Getting Back to the Basics of Green

Hippocrates Health Institute Sprouts

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.

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!

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.

​​​​Sprout Into the New Year

As 2014 draws to a close and 2015 is almost upon us it is a perfect time to make a healthier resolution for the New Year. A simple and very effective healthy practice is to resolve to add a small amount sprouts to every meal. Every grocery store will have at least one type of sprout on the shelf or you can grow your own! You can sprinkle a few on your salad, add to your entree or have them anytime as a healthy snack.Sprout-1

Sprouts are baby plants in their prime and are, on average 20 times more nutritious than even the best raw vegetables. At this early stage of growth sprouts have a greater concentration of nutrients than at any other time in the plant’s life. All of the energy stored in the seed is ignited by the soaking and rinsing process.

Sprouts are the perfect food because they can be grown anywhere in the world anytime of the year right in your own kitchen. The easiest sprout to grow is mung beans. All you need is a one quart wide mouth Mason jar, a sprouting lid, the seeds, and water. Here are the steps:

1. Put ½ cup of mung beans in the jar and install the sprout lid.
2. Fill the jar with at least two cups of water and soak at room temperature for eight hours.
3. Drain the water and leave the jar upside down in a drain pan propped at a 45 degree angle to allow the water to drain.
4. Rinse twice a day for two or three days.
5. Harvest when the roots emerging from the beans and are at least as long as the bean itself.
6. What you are not going to use right away can be stored in the refrigerator for a few days. I suggest storing sprouted beans and legumes in a green bag with the air removed. If moisture is present, placing a paper towel in the bag will extend shelf life.

Bean sprouts: An excellent source of energy

In today’s busy world, the health-conscious are increasingly looking at easy ways to keep healthy. However, in this quest for quick fixes, we often lose sight of simple ways to keep healthy by consuming simple foods, such as through a raw diet. Living foods such as bean sprouts are an excellent source of energy, require little effort to produce, and are an excellent way to kick start any raw diet.

Bean sprouts were first cultivated in the Far East, and still find their place in many Asian cuisines today. Popular in China, Japan and southeast Asia, bean sprouts are great stir fry Bean sprouts (1)ingredients, but can also be eaten raw.

The health benefits of bean sprouts are numerous, but the most beneficial effects for an otherwise healthy individual is that they are a great source of energy. Consuming bean sprouts can dispel feelings of malaise, and are a great way to ‘pep up’ after a long day. In addition, bean sprouts can also help prevent a number of cancers, such as breast cancer, and can be helpful for men with prostate problems and other glandular disorders. Men with premature balding may also derive benefits from bean sprouts, as can those experiencing gray hairs.

It is easy to produce your own bean sprouts from the comfort of your own home. First, Bean sprouts (2)soak half a cup of seeds in warm water for eight hours, or overnight. Drain the water and then rinse with warm water. Next, leave the sprouts to grow with an eight-pound weight on top for approximately five days, ensuring that you rinse them twice daily throughout. Following this process for just half a cup of seeds can yield up to five cups of bean sprouts, meaning that one does not have to complete this process often to gain the benefits of bean sprout consumption.
