Dr. Brian Clement from Hippocrates Health Institute

WELCOME BACK: DR. BRIAN CLEMENT, DIRECTOR OF THE HIPPOCRATES HEALTH INSTITUTE IN WEST PALM BEACH, FL



I was blessed to be able to meet Dr. Clement and his lovely wife when they came to speak at our Living Foods Group here in SW Florida. This is a description of our meeting as posted on our meetup site:

"WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BE HEALTHY??? WHY DO WE EAT JUNK?? DR CLEMENT GETS BEHIND THE MOST CURRENT SCIENCE TO EDUCATE US ON WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO! WHY ARE OUR CHILDREN SO SICK?? WHY SO MANY AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES? WHY DOES 1 IN 3 HAVE CANCER?????


Dr.Clement will address the half century of work on disease and longevity conducted at the renowned Hippocrates Institute. Cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, MS, ALS, Parkinson’s, fibromyalgia and more can be altered, prevented, and at times conquered with Phyto-chemicals, antioxidants and other nutrients consumed on a diet of organic vegan living food. Hundreds of thousands worldwide share enthusiasm in their greatly improved health by utilizing unprocessed green foods."

WOW what a meeting it was! Dr. Clement's "Raw" honesty was refreshing--no sugar coating on his part. He tells it like it is and the most wonderful part is it is all factual!! No misleading information, no false hopes, no promotion of "special" products, just true, pure, living nutrition that everyone has access to. One supplement he insists that everyone consumes though is vitamin B 12--real vitamin B 12 not the toxic vitamins from the drug store but the B 12 that you can find at Hippocrates. Most every one today is deficient in this vitamin--don't be fooled by a blood test, opt for a urine test as well.
He also approves of raw supplements like Garden of Life.
Dr. Clement wrote a book that will really open your eyes in regards to toxic supplements that people are taking every day. His book is titled, Supplements Exposed. I will quote Debra Tau saying, "On a recent tour to New York state, Dr. Clement was told that five "health stores" in the area where he was scheduled to speak refused to promote the conferences to their customers. When the organizers inquired as to why, the stores each separately stated that while they support the work Hippocrates Health Institute and Dr. Clement have done over the past half century, they fear that Supplements Exposed will reveal that most pills they sell are not truly health-building."
Now read that again to really let it sink in!!
He also warned of the last hoax, fish oil supplements. Just Google it yourself to get educated.
He suggests getting your omegas from plant sources like chia seeds and chia sprouts. Did you know chia has EFA's? And I love how you don't have to worry about them going rancid like flax--I have enough to worry about. Read here more info from Dr. Weil.
"Chia is very rich in omega-3 fatty acids, even more so than flax seeds. And it has another advantage over flax: chia is so rich in antioxidants that the seeds don't deteriorate and can be stored for long periods without becoming rancid. And, unlike flax, they do not have to be ground to make their nutrients available to the body. Chia seeds also provide fiber (25 grams give you 6.9 grams of fiber) as well as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, copper, iron, molybdenum, niacin, and zinc.

Another advantage: when added to water and allowed to sit for 30 minutes, chia forms a gel. Researchers suggest that this reaction also takes place in the stomach, slowing the process by which digestive enzymes break down carbohydrates and convert them into sugar.
Chia has a nut like flavor. You can mix seeds in water and add lime or lemon juice and sugar to make a drink known in Mexico and Central America as "chia fresca." As with ground flax seeds, you can sprinkle ground or whole chia seeds on cereal, in yogurt or salads, eat them as a snack, or grind them and mix them with flour when making muffins or other baked goods. I find them tasty and an interesting addition to my diet.

Chia is undergoing something of a renaissance after centuries of neglect. It was a major crop in central Mexico between 1500 and 900 B.C. and was still cultivated well into the 16th century, AD, but after the Spanish conquest, authorities banned it because of its close association with Aztec religion (Indians used the seeds as offerings in rituals). Until recently, chia was produced by only a few small growers, but commercial production has resumed in Latin America, and you can now buy the seeds online and in health food stores.
Because of its nutritional value and stability, chia is already being added to a range of foods. Research has shown that adding it to chicken feed makes for eggs rich in omega-3s. Feeding chia to chickens enriches their meat with omega-3s; fed to cattle chia enriches milk with omega-3s. Chia can also be added to commercially prepared infant formulas, baby foods, baked goods, nutrition bars, yogurt, and other foods. Another bonus: insects don't like the chia plant so it is easier to find organically grown varieties. I expect we'll soon be hearing much more about chia and its health benefits."

Check out this site for tons of info on chia.



I am buying the book Supplements Exposed and also his wife's recipe book titled, Healthful Cuisine. This book features over 170 raw vegan recipes! Plus 20 new recipes from celebrity Chef Chad Sarno.
Visit their web site for free recipes and valuable information. If you know anyone very ill or suffering from cancer you MUST read their healing stories. Many people have gone there after their doctor told them they would dye within weeks and they are still alive many years later and CANCER FREE. It is all about frame of mind, and raw, vegan, organic living foods.
What does the raw, vegan, living foods diet give our bodies enabling them to heal?
The Living Foods Diet Provides:
1. HORMONES- all cell language is conducted by hormones.
2. OXYGEN- In 1917 a Nobel Prize was awarded for a study showing that we can't properly digest foods lacking oxygen. Cooking food destroys the oxygen. The smell you smell when food is cooking are the oxygen molecules being released!!
3. PHYTOCHEMICALS- every plant in nature has chemistry in it that protects humans.
4. ENZYMES- they are the catalyst of all life!!!!!
Here are just a few pics of the raw, living foods we enjoy.




+JMJ+Today I am grateful for knowledge and people's unselfish generosity.
