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. Developed over a twenty-year period at the Hippocrates Health institute, one of the nation's first and finest wholistic health centres, 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.Wigmore, Ann is the author of 'Hippocrates Diet and Health Program', published 1984 under ISBN 9780895292230 and ISBN 0895292238.
