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.

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.

Your Enzyme Account

Living foods at Hippocrates health Institute

Living Foods

Health promoting enzymes found in living plant-based foods are particularly prone to molecular destruction by cooking. Hippocrates Health Institute places great emphasis on the valuable beneficial enzymes available in living foods and have witnessed the health promoting effects through the enzyme-rich Hippocrates diet.

When we are born our bodies are provided with a limited supply of enzymes used to keep our system in healthy working order for our entire lives. Replenishing this stock is possible through the foods we eat, but cooking foods above 115 degrees F kills enzymes! Each time we contract a diseases such as a virus or a common cold, encounter stress, or even breath polluted air we are withdrawing from our digestive enzyme account. This account is not replenished and eventually the body may face enzyme bankruptcy!

When the body hits rock bottom enzyme levels it goes into an emergency mode robbing enzymes from glands, muscles, nerves and blood to assist the troubled digestive process. As this trend continues, all other critical areas also become depleted of enzymes and this is now widely believed by many scientists to be the cause of various allergies and diseases. At Hippocrates Health Institute we have noticed enzyme shortages in people suffering from skin disorders, obesity, and heart disease.

Digestive_systemWhen enzymes are introduced back into the system via living foods, notable improvements can be found with blood coagulation, inflammation, wound healing, and tissue regeneration to name just a few. These enzymes replenish and reestablish normal blood-serum enzyme levels, and this process can actually be tracked by adding radioactive dye to enzyme supplements and trace them through the digestive system. Researchers discovered the tagged enzymes making their way into the liver, spleen, kidneys, heart, lungs, duodenum and urine.

The living foods diet encouraged by the Hippocrates Health Institute’s Life Transformation Program achieves two important functions relating to our enzyme account. Firstly by consuming a diet rich in nutrients, oxygen, phytonutrients, enzymes, chlorophyll, and essential nutrients, the immune system is bolstered and stops the unnecessary waste of enzyme energy. Secondly a living food diet is naturally rich in enzymes that are deposited into your enzyme account on a daily basis, keeping you richly supplied with metabolic enzymes that are responsible for building, cleansing, and regenerating the body.

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.

Enzymes – The Secret Fountain of Youth

Enzymes are large protein molecules found in all living things – plant and animal. Your body is capable of producing two types of enzymes, metabolic and digestive. Digestive enzymes include things like protease, and lipase, and amylase for the digestion of proteins, carbohydrates and fats. In human physiological terms, metabolic enzymes are the spark of life. They are the catalyst for every single chemical reaction in your body – every process, every action, every muscle movement, every sense, every thought, every word and every deed. The more enzymes you have inside of you the more alive you become.

Food in its’ original, fresh, ripe, raw and unadulterated state contains naturally occurring enzymes which aid in its’ own digestion. When a peach falls to the ground the cell walls are broken and a bruise develops at the point of contact. The enzymes are liberated and the peach begins to digest itself. The same process occurs when we chew the peach. Thisistock_000048071644_large greatly reduces the burden of digestion from your body since it does not have to go through the taxing process of manufacturing enzymes for the digestion of the peach.

This is a key point as the body expends a great deal of energy in the digestion of food. When you eat a cooked food meal, 80% of your body’s total available energy is expended in the processing of that meal. When you eat a raw food meal the energy expended in processing is reduced to only 20%. The less energy you expend on digestion the more energy you have available for life. Most people go through their entire lives totally unaware of their true potential because their bodies are perpetually under the heavy burden of processing the unnatural foods they are eating.

The more food is processed the more enzymes are destroyed and it becomes mostly “dead.” Because of their highly perishable nature, heat processing (cooking) destroys 100% of the enzymes in foods rendering it completely inert. This increases shelf life which is very desirable for the commercial food distribution industry but, it is highly undesirable for your body’s health and well-being. As a result of cooking and other forms of food processing, enzymes are largely missing from the Standard American Diet (SAD.) Other Fresh green vegetablesessential nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and proteins are also destroyed in the processing of food which creates other issues with your health which we will explore in greater detail in another article.

However, all is not lost as the body has the capability of producing digestive enzymes to make up for the lack of enzymes in cooked and otherwise processed foods. The problem is that you were born with a finite ability to manufacture enzymes. When you deplete your enzyme manufacturing capability, you die. The less of a burden you put on your body to produce digestive enzymes, the more metabolic enzymes will be available throughout your lifespan. This greatly improves your energy, vitality, health and longevity.

This is part of the magic and life force energy living foods like sprouts. According to Dr. Edward Howell who literally wrote the book on enzymes called “Enzyme Nutrition”, sprouts have up to 100 times the enzymes of even raw diet! Living foods are alive and you are alive. Since life begets life, the more living foods you take into your body at the expense of dead foods the more alive you become! It is not uncommon to see people who eat raw and living foods to look 15 years younger than their true chronological age and have soaring energy levels. Raw and living foods are truly Anti aging Living foods create living bodies. Dead foods create sick, decaying and dead bodies.
