Who is to say that exercising has to be such an irritating and unattractive experience? I’ve learned to switch my mind from viewing a workout as a nuisance by rather using it as an opportunity to dress and look the part. By having the right outfit to wear for a workout it becomes less about the sweat and more about the style! Without having my vibrant and fashionable gear for inspiration, I wouldn’t have been able to keep up with such a healthy and fit lifestyle. I have developed a new interest in Soul Cycling, Physique 57as well as competing in challenges that have pushed my body’s fitness levels past what I thought they could do. By looking fitness ready you will ultimately feel like no workout is impossible. When slipping on my favorite Lulu Lemon tank top and comfy Beyond Yoga pants I always feel prepared to conquer whatever activity lies ahead of me.
New trends in fitness wear make it easier to mentally prepare for the conditioning to come and they motivate me to squeeze into those tight yet trendy workout clothes. Bright colors, bold patterns, and sexy cutouts are just some of the many upcoming styles that make any session in the gym a way to show off your hard earned figure. Everyone has their own personal workout identity including their favorite labels to help them look like a fitness master. What are your favorite sports wear brands that make you feel just as confident going to the gym as you do leaving it?
P.S. As always I would like to hear from you what’s your favorite exercising apparel brand? Do you think being dressed for the part will give you extra boost of inspiration and perspiration at the gym? Share your comments, tips and suggestions with the rest of us.
Ever since I was a young girl, my mother would always remind me to dress to impress. But in order to look good from the outside, you need to feel good in the inside. It takes more than just a good-looking body to rock a gorgeous Valentino gown, or accessorize with the newest Chanel bag. Beauty equals health, and if you are not healthy on the inside, every outfit you buy would be an artless disguise. The best way to start a healthy lifestyle is by drinking every morning a green detox juice. These rawlicious juices will help you kick start a healthy eating plan and cleanse your system.
When you know how to make delicious green juices at your home, your health will greatly improve, increase energy, appetite diminish, inflammation will be reduced. weight loss will occur, and gives a natural boost to your immune system. What else can you ask for? In a blink of an ye you will be wearing that Valentino gown we were talking about earlier with poise and confidence.
Rule number 1: the greener the better. The green color in the juices contains chlorophyll, that contains oxygen. This is vital you oxygenate your body. Chlorophyll oxygenates and detoxifies our cells in a very effective way, plus, it’s 100% natural and extremely healthy. Chlorophyll is even rejuvenating just like the second tip for a healthy lifestyle: gelatin.
Rule number 2: it wiggles and makes you giggle. If you are busy running around, and have no time to prepare your own juice then there are few options out there. JUICE GENERATION prepares them fresh and you can grab one to go. Otherwise brands like RAWPOTHECARY offer excellent bottled juices. For clean energy drinks I like RUNA
Green juice brings perfect balance between our inner and outer beauty. By following these easy and healthy tips, you are guaranteed to drink yourself to health!
I keep saying that I don’t know what would have I done if I never met Dr. Clement in my life. One thing is certain that when a student is ready teacher always appears. When I meet him it felt so natural to squeeze every drop of wisdom, kindness and generosity out of him as he has plenty to share with everyone. Prior coming to Hippocrates Institute I have heard amazing things about him. He had huge dreams and even bigger vision to build this place where everyone from all over the world can come and indulge in new rawlishes life, daily shots of wheatgrass, green juices, find peace, happiness, longevity and get tons of support. He has been my role model teaching me that “The choices we make determine our fate”.
Millions of people worldwide suffer from malnutrition, poor guidance, stress and conflict. Fortunately there are people dedicated to give us tools of wisdom, love and passion to reboot our belief systems and start living lives we were meant to. With the 40 years of promoting this legacy Dr. Brian and Anna Maria Clement vision provokes people to take responsibility to make more sensible style lives. Health is wealth where generating positive mind set, joy, strength and thrive doesn’t happen by chance. As Dr. Clement said he doesn’t heal no one rather we are our own healers. Its up to us to begin to see this way to health and wealth.
The ultimate goal for most of us is to make it to haven. I feel that I am so ahead of myself and I am already in celestial zone since my studies at Hippocrates Health Institute. I would be surprised if “promised land” could match this magical place with its glory, tranquility miracles and all blessings showered upon everyone here. The concept of time doesn’t exist here. Each guest can start learning from wherever they need to begin in order to grow, heal and transform their life. Regardless if you need to overcome your health challenges or improve a well-being staying in harmony with nature gives everyone courage and commitment to live responsible life. I believe that all the time we spend in Nature heals, soothes and changes us right down to the core of our being. Slowly we discover that Nature calms the anger and drama in our head and things start to calm down and relax. Most of us accumulate toxins we don’t even understand. We are literally, physically addicted to the stress hormones that are released into our body by the perpetual drama and frantic activity. Often this takes severe toll on our body, mind and spirit. Through the health education program at Hippocrates Health Institute,its the premiere natural guidance to wellness with passionate stuff, and major dedication for self-fulfilled life. You will need to abandon your unhealthy habits and give a chance to new organic life. We are one big family here.
The core principle to well being here is based on raw living food diet. For some this could be totally new experience and challenge to get used to. Give it a time and you will be pleasantly surprised of developing new delicious palete. Hippocrates diet consists of 80% raw and 20% cooked food. The executive chef Ken Blue coordinates delicious and colorful buffet that is rich in variety of organic fresh sprouts, salads, legumes, sweet peppers and side dishes properly food combined. There is no salt, nor vinegar used. So far my favorite dish has been kelp pasta with mild sweet flavor, and nut icecream served every saturday. You should see the lines when they get hand out. During my internship with chef Ken in the kitchen I had an opportunity to observe how efficiently everything gets prepared with detailed precision, caring, and locally sourced top quality products. There is no cutting corners on products nor produce substitution. It was a great experience to share this knowledge where I could test this theory with my own new possibilities to create inspiring fun vegan recipes.
The second main success component of the program is wheat grass juice. Its considered here to be literately “blood transfusion”. When I learned about its health wonders and rich nutritious content with full balanced spectrum of vitamins and minerals I made sure I got plenty of this miraculous liquid. Instantly my energy and endurance improved, but the most exciting was relief of heavy menstrual cramps. If you are looking for hard-core natural health and healing guidance I suggest you seriously take the time to drink 2 oz twice daily of these fresh shots. You can learn how to grow your own living foods including wheatgrass and sprouts, juice and garden at classes offered by Brian Hetrich.
Its almost unbelievable that the way to heaven is not that complicated!
P.S. As always I would like to hear from you what is your philosophy on diet, and healthy living? How do you cope with stress and how do you relax? Share your comments, suggestions and advise with the rest of us.
with Victoras Kulvinskas co-founder of Hippocrates
I wish you could all be here with me at Hippocrates Health Institutepicking the brains of those amazing dedicated lecturers that I deeply admire. They devoted their life to a powerful mission of helping thousands to create the life filled with meaning, wisdom and wonder. There has been so much to absorb and digest from each speaker, and digestive enzymes had nothing to do with it. I barely had any time to sleep trying to process and sort out everything I was learning. They all brought some unique intelligence, definition of personal success, knowledge, passion, encouragement, devotion and huge heart. We were all wired up, interactive with questions and quickly grasping to each revelation as each speaker was taking the stage. I am a practical gal who likes to implement such wisdom right on the spot. My head was spinning from astonishment and flow of accurate information quickly filling up my notebook. I must say I really enjoyed immensely lectures of Victoras Kulvinskasco founder, with Wigmore of Hippocrates Institute. He is a walking wellness library ready to be shared at any asked moment. You can just turn pages in his genius brain and find answer to every inquiry. I also was drowned to Dr. Brian and Anna Maria Clements with Q&A session. They got my juices flowing much before they were physically poured and served. I got lots of clarity, and wish I could stop the time. It was a natural progression of what I have became aware of. They really created my own personal revolution: how I nourish my body and listen to it, reshuffle priorities, values, and choices.
This has been transformational guide to my personal inspiration. I have learned that I m now conscious of how every choice I make can have an impact on everything and everyone around. We are all like supporting family.
Here are some valuable points I took notes of and wanted to share with you:
1. Dr.Brian Clement informed us about shocking reality of what really goes on behind the door of majority food chain industries. I wasn’t aware that food chain companies hire biochemists around the clock with huge salaries to create addicting poisonous chemical formulas in our foods.
2. I have learned great value and benefits of wheat grass, sprouts, and blue green algae. These super foods give enormous amounts of energy and vitality allowing our physique to function on optimal level. Your body and mind will thank you for it through your increased energy levels, the health of your skin, and stronger immune system.
3. Only fox can digest eggs
4. Tomato is a fruit
5. Watermelon is a new Viagra.
6. Cashews are poisonous. They are not sold raw as claimed and contained urushiol that can create significant skin rashes, and can be toxic when ingested.
7. Avocado is a source of healthy bacteria
8. The day you rest you develop muscles
9. Fish goes rancid when is out of water for more then 20 minutes
10. Melons are meant to eat alone. They digest within 15-30 minutes
11. Coconut oil is great for teeth pulling. It will make your gums stronger and will kill bacteria
12. Mongbeans fight flu and restore gray hair
13. Right food combining: carbohydrates don’t mix with protein. Starches don’t mix with protein, fruits, avocado. Fruits don’t mix with vegetables, and protein.
14. Antibiotics don’t kill viruses but bacteria
15. To eat fruits you must be healthy. They should be 15% of your overall diet. Sugar feeds Candida and cancer.
16. Chocolate is made of agave and nibs.
17. Don’t put apple cider vinegar to food as it kills enzymes.
18. Proteins don’t put weight on, carbohydrates do
19. Dr. Clement said “Define your purpose and find your passion. Purposeful life is a life worth living”.
20. Victoras Kulvinskas said “Be you not BS”!
This content was fascinating and gaining this knowledge is priceless. Once you are in you are in for life. I m so eager to live my life as a happy and healthy adventure. If I get the gift to inspire someone the same way I was inspired by those teachers it will be the cherry on top.
With each day spent at Hippocrates Health Institute I m getting seriously veggicated. More and more I m realizing that we are going back to basics. Eating real fresh organic non GMO food, nourishing our body and mind serves best purpose our relationship with food. Being healthy is not about deprivation or clueless dieting. True vibrant health is a natural state. Food should come from our mother nature not microwave, or frying pans. Its our fuel of energy, nourishment and optimum health. Above everything it is our madison and answer to health challenges we face. I discovered that sprouts are hot stuff. They contain solar energy in the most digested form available. They are more delicious and nutritious (around 30-40 times) then kale, spinach or any other vegetable. The protein content is around 20-30% and is easily absorbed by the body. They also provide an abundance of antioxidants and balanced supply of vitamins and minerals. Sprouts make fantastic delicious base of a green juices.
Its my morning daily ritual since I have learned about amazing benefits of drinking green juice. Its quick, easy and economical to start a day. I have been getting into the instinctive habit of impatiently checking my watch at 10am and 4pm when green juice is served daily at Hippocrates Institute.
Contrary to what you may think juicing isn’t boring. It provides so many varieties for creating your own super tasty favorite recipes. I love to indulge in Hippocrates green juice formula as it proved to me to be the most nutritious and delicious and the same time. I m still in process of mastering its taste perfection when I visit home on the weekend. I rested the case of experimenting with different veggies and sticked to this dainty green juice formula. At home I prepare them fresh daily to maximize on its nutritional value. My first morning serving is 16oz and another patch of afternoon 16oz to follow. Its my “pm siesta” green latte without gig-erring side effects. The formula that I most enjoy and you may like as well is:
Hippocrates Institute Green Juice Formula
2 stalks of celery
1 handful of pea sprouts
1 handful of sunflower sprouts
To make it even more special I like to add 1 oz of ginger and 1 oz of blue green algae. (Super Blue-Green Algae is a complete and balanced protein and has been found to be effective in reducing radiation and heavy metal exposure in the body. It also adds minerals to our systems, especially trace minerals, lacking because of the depleted state of the soil.) You may also add 1 oz of garlic. Just be mindful to others when you consume garlic.
Green juice is easy to absorb and gives the digestive system a much deserved rest. It regulates blood sugar bringing balance to food cravings. It oxygenates the body, removes toxins and rebuilds immune system.
Drinking green juices will get your juices flowing.
Cheers! To your health!
