The Hippocrates Diet
and Health Program
by Ann Wigmore

$11.95 - Softcover - 191 pages

For over thirty years, Ann Wigmore, founder of the renowned Hippocrates Health Institute, has taught that what we eat profoundly affects our health. As an internationally acclaimed wholistic health educator, she has repeatedly pointed out how our modern "nutritionless" diet of convenience foods is a prime cause of illness and overweight—a fact that is only now being confirmed by the American medical community. But unlike most other critics, she offers a positive alternative to today's "empty" diet.

Developed over a twenty-year period at the Hippocrates Health Institute, one of the nation's first and finest wholistic health centers, the Hippocrates Diet allows the body to correct its problems naturally and at its own pace. Through a diet of fresh fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts and such super nutritious foods as sprouts and wheatgrass juice, all of which are prepared without cooking, the body is able to restore its internal balance. As the body regains its strength and vigor, its capacity to maintain its normal weight, fight disease, and heal itself is enhanced.

While a practical handbook for healthful living, The Hippocrates Diet and Health Program also discusses body cleansing, disease prevention, life extension, and the problems associated with aging. It includes dozens of easy-to-follow recipes and money-saving health tips.

It is never easy for anyone to break an eating habit of a lifetime, even if that habit may be doing more harm than good. However, as Ann Wigmore aptly points out, ultimately, each of us is responsible for our own health. When you are ready to make the decision to lose weight, regain youthful energy, or prevent illness, The Hippocrates Diet and Health Program can be your guide.

About the author:

"In the field of nutrition and health Ann Wigmore has made a special name for herself. Not one to follow others, she has pioneered her own path. First finding the answer to her personal health problems at age fifty using live foods and wheatgrass, she has a passion for her living foods diet. For twenty-five years she has shared her discovery with tens of thousands of people worldwide — including many who have been pronounced medically incurable. As a teacher and counselor, rather than a licensed physician, she makes no pretensions of recommending treatment or of making medical judgments. She is always quick in pointing out that given a chance the body will heal itself.

"Vibrating with health and vitality, Ann Wigmore is constantly on the run. Reaching out to all that are open to hear what she has to say, she emphasizes through her program that anyone can live a healthier, happier and more fulfilling life. We are two people who listened, and who know she is right. We had been health-minded for over twenty years when we first met Ann, but colds, the flu, and other common health problems still plagued us. The idea that we could prevent even these minor imbalances was appealing, and we decided to give the Hippocrates Diet a try. We grew wheatgrass, sprouts, and greens, and made the juices and Rejuvelac. After four months of following the diet strictly, we felt fantastic. Our energy level was high and our thinking was clear. Since then we haven't suffered from even as much as a cold. And that was two years ago.

"Now don't think that this is just another health food or diet book, because it's not. It represents a whole new way of living which can extend the length of your life—far beyond what has previously been thought possible. More importantly, it can improve your energy level and effectiveness no matter what your age.

"We are pleased and honored to write an introduction to Ann's excellent new book. It has given us an opportunity to thank her publicly; not only for the health benefits that we and our friends enjoy, but for assisting many thousands of people around the world who have been relieved of the fear of pain and illness through her ideas. We plan to continue following the Hippocrates Diet for the simple reason that we want to feel like she does, perform like she performs, and look as good as she looks—at her age."
