The Journey Begins: Day One of Seven

In 2005, my mom was diagnosed with cancer and like any devoted daughter who was devastated by the thought of losing her “rock,” I went in search of answers. I came up with Hippocrates, a hidden treasure of health and wellness located in West Palm Beach, FL. While for my mom, going to their three-week Life Transformation Program never happened, I never forgot what I heard in the orientation session we attended.

Since that day when I first heard about my mom’s diagnosis, I have devoted a large portion of my life to learning about alternative methods of health. I’ve delved into healthy eating habits, essential oils and so much more.

Because of the knowledge, I’ve gained over the years, often people will come to me for advice for simple things like a cold or more complex issues like cancer. Together we discuss what are some of the things they should consider to help strengthen their mind, body, soul and spirit and their immune system. My consistent answer to everyone is, “if I were in your shoes, the first thing I would do is go and take the three-week program offered by Hippocrates.”

Now 12 years later, I still make the same suggestion but when people started to ask me very specific questions, it became clear to me that if I wanted to give them answers, I needed to test the waters. While three weeks would be my ideal, a busy lifestyle is allowing me one week to take this place all in and so on Sunday, January 15, I find myself excited to learn about Hippocrates, the place I’ve encouraged so many others to visit.

The first day was a quick overview and a chance to savor the raw food provided at Hippocrates and that for me was heaven. While for some, all raw might be hard to do, we’ll see how they feel after a week of consuming pure and valuable ingredients that their bodies want and need.

Going down the buffet and choosing all these organically grown foods was like being a kid in a candy store because I knew the value of what was there. I especially loved seeing turmeric, because it helps inflammation, which will help the arthritis I’ve recently been dealing with. Sprouts are an amazing nourishment for the body and there was every type conceivable, mostly grown on the property. Cinnamon, garlic, kimchi, olives, peppers, carrots, and avocados all were part of the buffet. Since my research has educated me on the value of each, as I consumed that huge plate of powerful food I felt good just knowing my body was thanking me for providing it with the nutrients it needs.

However, the part of the day I enjoyed even more was listening to the over 30 people coming for either a three-week or nine-week program and hearing their reasons. Some just want to learn more about improving their health and well-being. Others are focused on losing weight, feeling better or getting rid of aches and pains. And still others have much deeper issues like cancer or type 2 diabetes. And there were even those who were looking for a rebirth, a new beginning in their lives.

They came from near and far. The list of countries was inspiring. Canada, Australia, Sweden, Switzerland, Israel, Russia, France, England, and Italy were mixed in with those from around the nation. While the geography of those present spanned the world, the theme was the same. We all came to discover what Hippocrates can do for us.

As the days go by, I’ll give you a peak at the road map to health that is the Hippocrates way. Even before this journey has begun I am truly excited to finally take my turn to receive this wonderful gift of health that I have often suggested to others. This time it’s my turn and I’m going to soak up every bit of knowledge that I can, not only for me but for anyone else who cares to listen.
