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.

Just last weekend I visited annual NY Life Expo where different natural holistic vendors, doctors and health experts offer their services, products and conduct educational lectures. I love to check out who and what’s new, what’s exciting on the market and listen to some educational presentations. There is always something to learn, be curious about, rise questions observe and experience. My favorite booth to tour is always Vitamix. There is continuous abundance of interesting recipes, new colorful upgraded machines with fancy buttons to press and turn. This is one piece of equipment I truly can’t live without in my kitchen. As I was passing by the Vitamix station the pitch man was demonstrating how easy it was to make delicious icecream. He have put to his mix: some carrots, spinach, bananas, berries, strawberries, peaches and I almost fainted when I saw that food combo being blended. After being lectured at Hippocrates Health Institute on the right food combining I couldn’t remain silent and pointed out to him that he was poorly combining all ingredients. He lifted his paused face from the pitcher not understanding what I was talking about. He answered firmly that once you have your own Vitamix you can put and mix whatever you wish. Immediately I was rushed to the side by another Vitamix representative who informed me that I was making to much co-motion for other potential clients who were being programed how to make a “booz”.

Lack of proper information or ignorance can cause a lot of unnecessary suffering and discomfort in our body. For years that was my main concern. I didn’t understand why did I have fireworks effect in my stomach. I felt bloated after each meal despite my conviction that I was eating healthy diet. I didn’t know that fruits and nuts didn’t belong together in cereals. I had no clue that fruits shouldn’t be mixed with vegetables. I wasn’t aware that tomato is a fruit and does not belong in a salad. For a short time I was designed by a nutritionist a “nutritional” atomic bomb smoothie that consisted of the following: banana, spinach, peach, pineapple, coconut meat, strawberries, avocado, spiritualina, 1tbs of coconut oil or olive oil, 1 tbs of macca powder, 1 glass of almond milk, 1 date. Just imagine how poorly it was combined. Additionally it was overloaded with extremely high caloric content. I was to scared to count. I felt heavy and bloated all day after drinking it. At the time I didn’t understand why my weight was sky rocketing.

The most commonly served improper food combining is protein with starches. (meat and potatoes most of us grew up on)  The after thoughts cause gas, heartburn and uncomfortable bloating. Various digestion process of wrongly combined foods enables the food to get digested and body can’t adept to assimilate the nutrients. Our digestive system gets sluggish and can’t eliminate waste deposits.  It creates various gases in the body, including sulfur. The more ingredients goes into our stomachs the more chances of creating Digestive explosions. Combining starch and avocado is another example of bad food combining that can only contribute more sparks to the flamed stomach. We digest food at various time frames in various acid/alkaline environments.

Here is a list of food-combining groups

protein: seeds, nuts – digest on average within 4 hrs

starches: sprouted grains, sprouted legumes, hard winter squashes, sweet potatoes & yams – digest on average 3 hrs

vegetables: sprouted greens, fruits vegetables, leafy greens, low starches root vegetables – digest on average within 2.5hrs

fruits: acid (grapefruits, lemons, oranges, strawberries), sub-acid – apples, apricots, most berries, grapes, kiwis, mango, pears, peaches, sweet – bananas, all dried fruit, persimmons – digest on average within 2hrs

melons have excellent benefits when eaten alone  digest on average within 15-30mins

tomatoes are fruits not vegetables contrary to general understanding. Eaten alone they are beneficial to cleanse your liver of deposited fats.

One of my favorite breakfast meal used to be oatmeal or granola with almond milk and massive amount of fruits and nuts. Little did I know that this combination of starch and sweet fruit created fermentation and alcohol in my body. Basically I was boozed.

Nutritious combinations of foods are avocado and greens, avocado and sub-acid fruit, protein and sprouts with leafy greens, starches and sprouts with vegetables.

Here are properly food combined healthy delicious breakfast suggestions and smoothie recipes for you:

1. banana, peach, berries, sprouts like alfalfa sprout, with or without splash of coconut water. 

2. Pineapple, peach, berries, avocado, alfalfa sprout with or without splash of coconut water.

3.  1 glass of raw almond milk, 1 date,  1 tbs of chia seeds. Blend all in Vitamix or other blender until creamy smooth. For being super duper you can add digestive enzymes, probiotic and blue green algae to any of the above smoothies and cerals. 

4. Sprouted dehydrated buckwheat mixed with water or buckwheat milk. You can add pumpkin pie spice, pinch of cinnamon, or a drop of stevia. 

If you ever make a mistake or poorly food combine just take some digestive enzymes and it will help you to speed up your digestion process.

Enjoy
