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.


Fad Food Nation

Remember Pet Rocks? Hot pants? Sideburns?

Looking back, they sound like a bad idea. But at one time they were the rage. They were the latest fad.

The dictionary defines a fad as “a temporary fashion, notion, manner of conduct, etc., especially one followed enthusiastically by a group.” Fads change on fancies and whims. We follow fads to feel popular – somehow in the know. We fall for them because they help us feel “normal” or because we think they give us a certain prestige – hence all those IPads and GPS navigators. And some of the fads that catch fire the fastest? Food fads.

Liquid diet. Watermelon diet. Grapefruit diet. Cabbage soup diet. Fish pills. Diet pills. Low-fat diets. No-carb diets. Junk-food diets.
Now, we at Hippocrates Health Institute don’t run to embrace every popular notion about health or food, we’re welcoming one new fad: the raw living foods fad. We want the lifestyle to be popular, so popular that it tips iDoodled Fork and Knifento the mainstream and stays there. Why? Because this fad is grounded in hard science. This fad has the element of substance. It works.

With our 60-year-old track record for improving people’s health, we’re hoping to take this trend to the next level. It’s not an unreasonable goal. But it is one that has to include education, be sold with facts, independent of the fad.

Advertising has capitalized on popular fads for decades, selling them to mainstream America. In the 60s, advertisers rallied around the counter culture fad and turned it into an over-the-counter-culture that bought into “ a revolution in toilet paper,” guzzled “beer dedicated to the free spirit in you” and were lured by the call to “join the Pepsi Generation.”

Fads can have the bandwagon effect: the masses will do and believe anything just because their neighbors, friends and family do and believe it. And food fads are among the most common – though many are based on anything but fact. Chocolate is for lovers? Coffee is the “think drink?” Fish equals brain food? Heck, up until the ‘80s some were convinced smoking was an aid to digestion. Fads, like stereotypes, depend on sweeping Fad Food Nation-3generalities based on image rather than substance, and they might just be wrong. On reflection, fads make us look foolish, vain and downright adolescent. We follow the herd to be part of the herd.

Thankfully, sometimes fads focus on the real thing, and in their own shallow way, help promote something good. Healthy fads like jogging, exercise, yoga, psychotherapy (in LA & NYC, anyway), or environmentalism, sometimes popularize good information, and help fringe realities go mainstream. What changes a fad to mainstream thinking, or keeps it in vogue is simple: It must be grounded in filling an on-going need. Granola used to be considered tree-hugger hippie food. Mainstream mocked the stuff right alongside tofu whenever someone wanted to take aim at vegetarianism. Then along came Quaker Oats and a bunch of copy cats who saw a niche market, and the granola/breakfast bar phenomenon was born. The marketers replaced granola’s hippie image with a healthy, convenience food one and made it stick.

Raw living foods diets will go mainstream and stay there. The reasons are plentiful: they will appeal in a world where health care systems are failing and people are more aware of Diet Concepttheir environment and what is in their food. The fad will stick when people see that eating this way really helps and heals.

Who ever thought smoking would fall to the wayside the way it has? Who ever thought insurance companies would pay for preventive measures like the Dean Ornish reversing heart disease program? Who ever thought “vegan” would become a household word? The healthy trend continues. The momentum grows. People are hungry. Hippocrates is ready.
