Brian and Anna Maria are Directors of the Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach, Florida.

The History of the Hippocrates Health Institute

Four decades ago, Ann Wigmore, visionary and humanitarian, founded a concept based on the Hippocratic wisdom "Let Food Be Our Medicine". Together with the brilliant mind of another kindred thinker, Viktoras Kulvinskas, they created a comprehensive institute in Boston, MA that taught people to draw from their vast inner resources the power to transform the quality of their lives. The commitment to this idea is embodied in what is now the Hippocrates Health Institute of West Palm Beach, FL.

Born in Europe, Wigmore watched her grandmother treat wounded soldiers with grasses during World War I. She came to the United States when she was still a child and called on those memories in the 1950's when treating personal health problems. Starting by treating her animals with wheatgrass, she sought expert opinion as to the potential effects on humans.

The health experts had no doubts about the beneficial qualities of wheatgrass. Wigmore would go on to start a revolution in the world of nutrition that has continued to grow to this day. Her name is synonomous with the history of a health movement that has pushed alternative healthcare measures into the forefront of U.S. and world consciousness.

Brian Clement has continued the work of Ann Wigmore and guided the Institute into an era that has seen America embrace wheatgrass and the advent of holistic approaches to healthcare. Modern research has established links between certain foods and health risks.

Teaching that one of the great tragedies of the civilized world is the acceptance of current dietary standards, Clement proposes a living-foods diet rich in vitamins, minerals and proteins. The vegetarian regimen supplies the oxygen, enzymes, alkalinity and bioelectrical charges vital to cellular health. Hippocrates alumni include people from all walks of life who have benefited from these teachings. They tell stories of recovery that were once considered miraculous and today are becoming commonplace. As we enter the 21st century, the power of the Hippocrates diet to change lives can be validated through scientific research. The Hippocrates Health Institute is available to all persons with health challenges, those who need to energize their lives, and those who want to enjoy a state of vibrant well-being.

The union of Brian Clement and Hippocrates Health Institute, a 70 person in-residence health facility is one of those events that altered the course of modern health care. For over 25 years, Brian Clement has directed the Institute's growth and development as well as facilitated the implementation of such progressive health treatments as: the Living Food Diet, Wheatgrass Therapy, Dark Field Microscopy, and the essentials of mind body therapies. It was in this context that Brian Clement assumed the role of a health advocate, motivating a very eager public to take action to improve their health and their lives, and in many cases to save their life.

In an effort to promote his progressive ideas, Brian has traveled extensively to over 25 countries around the globe. He has conducted educational programs in many countries, including Portugal, Scotland, Sweden, England, Ireland and France.

In recent years he has been commissioned by government supported organizations to establish, organize and direct health centers in Denmark, Switzerland, Greece and India. Brian has conducted countless seminars and lectures throughout North America, including Canada. At home in the United States, he has taken the message of this widely successful program to all fifty states.

Brian has also written seven books in which he explores the various aspects of health, spirituality and natural healing. His most recent best selling book, Living Foods for Optimum Health, has been acclaimed by Marilyn Diamond, co- author of Fit for Life as "an important and eminently readable book for the new era of self care," and by Coretta Scott King as "a landmark guide to the essentials of healthy living". In response to the growing public demand, he has produced an educational video series on the practical application of Hippocrates Health Institute's Lifechange Program, the three week detoxification and cleansing process that is recognized worldwide as Hippocrates' signature program. In addition, Brian created the Hippocrates Health Educator Program, a nine-week intensive instructional that certifies students to teach the Hippocrates Living Foods Lifestyle, with graduates in over 12 countries.

His progressive ideas on natural health approaches, coupled with his vast theoretical and practical scientific experience have earned him a reputation as a leading expert in the natural health field. Brian's professional opinion is highly regarded and much sought after; he is a frequent guest on television, radio and in print, and acts as a resource expert for several publications. Brian has also been recognized for his significant contribution in the field of modern health care by "Who's Who Among Outstanding Americans".

Anna Maria Gahns-Clement embarked on her vocation as a practitioner of natural health care when she assumed the directorship of Sweden's Brandal Health Center in Stockholm, an internationally recognized and well-respected center for health recovery. Her single minded pursuit in mastering her skills as a nutritionist, iridologist, bodywork therapist, touch-for-health facilitator and nursing health care provider served to enhance the instinctive qualities that a natural healer such as she already possessed.

She founded the first living food organization in Scandinavia and was a member of the Natural Health Care Coalition, a government supported effort in unifying the field of complementary health care in her native Sweden.

For over twenty years she has been co-director and chief health administrator of Hippocrates Health Institute situated originally in Boston, Massachusetts and now located in West Palm Beach, Florida. Anna Maria Gahns Clement is considered to be one of the leading experts in live blood cell analysis, a revolutionary technique in the comprehensive assessment of a person's state of health. She trained in this method under American Biologics in California and assisted their professional staff in furthering their education in this field.

Anna Maria Gahns-Clement is the author of two books on the application of natural health methods in family and children's care. She also collaborated in creating a series of books about the Hippocrates Life-Change program. She lectures extensively around the country as well as around the globe employing a style uniquely her own, a down-to earth, sensible approach in teaching practical methods that people can comfortably incorporate in their own lives.

As multi-faceted as her life is, the one role Anna Maria considers to be the most important, the most challenging and, undoubtedly, the most enjoyable of all is her role as mother to her four children whose perfect health is a tribute to her and the Hippocrates lifestyle.
