Starting in 1956, the year the Hippocrates Health Institute was founded by Ann Wigmore (later joined by Viktoras Kulvinskas), we have operated on the belief that given the proper tools and environment, our bodies are self-healing and self-rejuvenating. That was a philosophy practiced by Hippocrates himself and passed down to us today from this father of modern medicine.
As a fifth-century BC Greek physician, Hippocrates treated the body as a whole, not just a series of parts, and taught a natural healing process centered on a wholesome, natural diet. He developed an oath of medical ethics that physicians today still repeat as they begin their careers in medicine. An important part of that original oath, written in 400 BC, reads: “I will give no deadly medicine to anyone.”
This admonition seems to have been disregarded by much of modern medicine as physicians blindly and reflexively embrace the marketing campaign of every new pharmaceutical drug coming off industry assembly lines. They usually decide what to prescribe based on the “education” they received from the marketing representatives for the drug companies.
For a half century we have seen pass through our institute doors practically every illness and disease known to afflict humankind. Some guests arrive after being given virtual death sentences by their medical practitioners. They are told they have only weeks or months left to live. Others come because they believe in preventive medicine, and they understand the importance of detoxifying to strengthen their immune system. Others have come to retard the aging process, control their weight, or simply to enhance the quality of their lives.
Brian Clement PhD, LN
Brian Clement, Ph.D., L.N. has spearheaded the international progressive health movement for more than three and one-half decades. He was a team member with Ann Wigmore at the original location of Hippocrates Health Institute in Boston, and helped to move the Institute to Florida in 1986. By conducting daily clinical research as the director of the renowned Hippocrates Health Institute, he and his team have developed a state of the art program for health maintenance and recovery. The Institute has pioneered a program and established training in active aging and disease prevention. With hundreds of thousands of people participating in this program over the last half century, volumes of data have been accrued, giving Clement a privileged insight into the lifestyle required to prevent disease, enhance longevity, and maintain vitality and stamina.
Among Brian’s many contributions are “Living Foods for Optimum Health”, “Longevity”, and Lifeforce”, which Dr. Colin Campbell called “One of the most important books ever written on nutrition.” One of his latest books, “Supplements Exposed,” will change America’s perceptions about nutritional supplementation. This landmark publication will expose the pharmaceutical fraud rampant globally in the sales, production, and distribution of worthless and harmful vitamin pills. “Killer Clothes,” will explain how seemingly innocent clothing choices endanger your health and how to protect yourself. Brian’s, “Killer Fish”, his 3 Volume Series, “Food is Medicine” and “Dairy Deception” have been recently been published as well.
Brian is first and foremost a devoted husband, a caring father of four children and a grandfather of three grandchildren. In addition to daily counseling and research studies, Brian conducts conferences worldwide on attaining health and creating longevity giving humanity a roadmap for redirecting, enriching, and extending their lives..
