Ep. 117: Understanding the Healing Vibrations of Food, Emotion, and Passion Interview with Dr. Brian Clement
Today we learn from another our elders in our Learn from Our Elders Series, where Robyn has curated people who are 65+ and still contributing massively to their own body of work, and to the planet. Brian Clement was a typical American growing up in the New Jersey/New York area, he likes to joke that he was a pioneer in the field of obesity—he was fat even before many Americans were fat! Raised in an Irish household on the standard American diet of meat, processed foods and sugary sodas, he was unfit and gasping for air every few steps. When he was 20 years old, despite the fact he had been more or less educated by his family that the body would die without animal-based foods, the lure of an influential peer inspired him to give up meat in one fell swoop. After losing 120 pounds and experiencing the difference in his health, he became a complete vegan three years later. And now as the director of the Hippocrates Institute in Florida, fueled with passion and natural talent to communicate this lifestyle to people in a relatable way, and with his progressive ideas on natural health, coupled with his vast theoretical and practical science experience, he travels the world teaching and motivating the public to take action to improve their lives.

Hi everyone, and Welcome back to the Vibe show. I am your host, Robyn Openshaw. And I’m so glad to be back with you today. I am interviewing an old friend. I invited him on my lecture tours twice, going from the North to the South of Florida. Dr. Brian Clement is just a powerhouse of information. He had a mentor who I share as one of my heroes in health and wellness, Dr. Ann Wigmore, who trained him and really changed his life.
Brian Clement has spearheaded the International Progressive Health Movement for over 35 years now. Right about that time, it’s been 35 years now I believe, he’s been the co-director of the world renowned Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach, Florida, where he and his wife Anna Maria, who’s also a PhD, have really implemented innovative, natural health treatments and programs. They’re really a power couple. They have authored or coauthored many, many books in which Brian explores different aspects of health and spirituality and natural healing.
So, uh, lately he’s been commissioned by some government supported organizations to establish and organize and direct some major health initiatives in Denmark, Switzerland, Greece, and India. So he has traveled to over 25 countries to speak and help establish some really important health initiatives. So I’m excited for you to meet my friend Dr. Brian Clement.
So welcome to the Vibe show. I’m so glad to catch up with you Brian, because I haven’t seen you in person in quite a while and I’m really happy to talk to you again and see what you’re up to. So welcome.
Well, nice to be with you. And I’m up to a lot. I just flew back last night. I did a Ted talk and that’s always a lot of fun, at a university up in North Carolina. And uh, this Thursday I’m going to be up in Canada on a lecture tour. Just came out of New York about a week ago. So we’re keeping very busy. We’re lucky here at Hippocrates. We have people from 17 countries in our guests population right now. We’re happy and busy and as excited about life more than probably ever before.
Well, that’s exciting to hear because we are looking for inspiration here on the Vibe show. I’ve talked about how in my fifties I’m looking for mentors. I’m looking for somebody who’s doing amazing work, still mentally sharp, still producing, adding to their body of work, contributing to their families. And you came to mind. And what I would like to ask you is just kind of start at the beginning because I’ve done several lectures with you throughout Florida and so I know more about your story than most people do. Even people who follow you and who are fans of Hippocrates Institute, of which you’re a founder.
But will you talk about how you came to eat a raw vegan diet? I’m dying to know if you’re still completely vegan or do you like John Robbins and so many others who I’ve interviewed on this show, you eating a little bit of fish or anything like that now, that I think you’re post 65, but talk a little bit about your story.
Well, in a couple years I’ll be 70 and I am completely a Vegan and have been for 48 years. I’ve not wavered or compromised in any way. And I’m actually recommitting myself almost on a weekly basis after watching our guests here reverse catastrophic disease. And all of us that live this way, successfully fight the aging process. So that hasn’t changed anything in my life. Now the next thing I can say to you is that, what most people do is they find exciting events for short periods of time, but I was blessed with as a child, I picked something I loved a lot, and I actually helped to work my way through school called music. So I found my passion.
And then when I got out of school and went into studies, I started to study science and recognized in a very short period of time that what was being taught conventionally in biology and chemistry was quite small and limiting. So I started to study quantum biology and quantum physics. And so have been totally passionate about what I’ve done now in my work for all of these decades I’ve been doing this. Not only do we get excited about what we do, but I have a chance on a daily basis to implement these ideas and clinical research, clinical observation with our guest population here.
As many of you may or may not know, people come to Hippocrates for two reasons. Either they’re seriously conscious people who want to prevent disease and aging. Or seriously ill people. And so when everything else has failed, they get on planes from around the globe, around the United States and they show up here many times in the very, very late stage of what their disorder is. And we’re able to watch what happens when you plug them into not only plant based diets, but plant based diets that are completely uncooked, raw. And give them massive amounts of raw juices but not with carrots and fruit and all of these things that are problematic for people, but more so greens and sprouts.
And as you may or may not know in the field of nutrition, the most important finding ever was that sprouts have the most medicine of any plants. They’re called phytochemicals. And one small example for you, if you take Broccoli, which is an amazingly good anti-cancer, anti-ulcer, anti-gastrointestinal plant. If you take the sprout of a Broccoli, it’s 50, (five, zero) times more effective for all of those problems. So these are the things that we’ve been observing.
And of course it’s not only about diet here, every one of our guests get psychotherapy. Every one of our guests go through our exercise academy, we’ve gifted people there. And the list goes on. Noninvasive therapies with electromagnetic and cold laser and QRS and cyber scan in h wave. We are a multifaceted institute that picks the best of the best from all disciplines of medicine from around the globe. And we employ them for one reason to keep people vitally energetic. So they either reverse or prevent disease and premature aging.
You probably don’t know this, but when we met, I had reached out to you to say, Hey, can I come stay at Hippocrates, because I want to study what you’re doing there and what kind of treatments you have there and what the whole vibe of the place is. But what you don’t know is that since that three and a half years that I spent flying all over the world, going to a couple dozen clinics, is that what I tell people is that there’s, you know, I think you know that I go to Switzerland every year and I lead retreats there. But I tell people that that Swiss Clinic and Hippocrates are my two favorite after evaluating on a lot of different levels, 20 different clinics worldwide.
And one of the reasons is, and you and the Swiss Clinic share this in common, is it, I don’t feel like it’s the best approach when someone is ill to go to a clinic where they think that the medicine is the needle in their arm. They think that the medicine is the nutrient IV’s, but they’re in a hotel a mile away. They’re having to come in for treatments every day that they’re having to fend for themselves with food. At Hippocrates, you’re providing everything. You should know, if you’re listening to this, that there’s a buffet every day and it is sprouts, and there’s wheat grass juice every day and there’s, you know, it’s very vegetables, very alkaline, very high fiber, very nutrient dense.
And so when, when I talk to people and I say you should check out Hippocrates, which was one of my two favorites, that’s a pretty high honor given the fact that that’s top 10 percent, I evaluated 20 different clinics. And I won’t go out on the Internet and say you should not go to this clinic and here’s why, that would be, you know, I was the guest of all these different places. But Hippocrates is definitely my top two. And one, of it is, it’s just a beautiful place and you stay on site and you’re fed onsite, the therapeutic diet. But I do always say to people are you willing to eat what’s going to heal you? Because they do a great job with sprouts and vegetables and all that, but the bar is high. Okay? So if you are a person who’s like, everything has to taste delicious and to my standard American diet tastes, you know, you better go there prepared that you’re going to eat a truly therapeutic diet. So, so I’m super impressed by it.
But backup just a little bit and will you just talk a little about your childhood? And you did not come into your adulthood healthy. I would love to know what happened.
Quite the opposite, As a matter of fact, in the talk I just did at the University on Saturday, I explain that what made me awake, was fear. I was 120 pounds larger, uh, smoking cigarettes, chain smoking cigarettes, smoking grass on a constant basis. I was a damn mess. And, uh, pretty much recognized that this could not continue. I didn’t know what to do or how to do it. Nor did I know anyone that knew anything about health at that point. My loving, wonderful family, which were loving and wonderful, uh, their idea of health was you weren’t sick, as long as you weren’t diagnosed, you were healthy.
And everyone I knew was eating as badly, or worse than I am. I finally met a woman who was this wonderful short five foot tall woman from New York who had healed herself of catastrophic cancer. Being an Irish guy, we had major families and every time I heard cancer it was being whispered at some wake somewhere, some funeral home. Because my uncle would be laying there and nobody would ever say why somebody would die, but I’d hear cancer. So in my mind it was quite simple, if you’ve got cancer, you’re going to end up in a casket.
And she said to me, well, 40 years ago I was told I was going to be dying but I healed it. And at first I thought she must be fooling because nobody heals cancer, you get cancer, you die. And she introduced me to a lot of her friends who had uniquely the same type of story. And she had an organization called Nutritional Workshop and I was by far the youngest person, I think the next youngest person, I was 20 and it was probably 55 or 60. And I would go to these meetings and just, it was just remarkable. It was almost like going to evangelical health meetings. People were screaming and yelling about how they healed diseases. And it was just really enthralling, it just captured me.
And once she knew she got me on the right train, she said, you have to do this work. And I said, well, what is this work? And she said, well, you’re going to work really hard, you’re not going to make a lot of money, but you’re going to help people. Now that was the mantra of the sixties generation. We were against money. We wanted to help people and working hard for something we liked made sense. And so slowly but surely I made my way into some of the great leaders in that day. Paul Braggs and Bernard Jensen became colleagues and friends of mine over the years. But were really guiding lights that had massive history and great experience. And I started to study with them. And then our founder Ann Wigmore who opened Hippocrates, we were the very first lifestyle medicine center on Earth. She created lifestyle medicine in 1956 when the Hippocrates doors opened in Boston.
And somehow it just all fell into place. And so besides me losing 120 pounds, gaining consciousness for the first time in my life, empathy, compassion, that’s what consciousness is, for myself and other people. I was surrounded by geniuses who basically were the leaders in this field who all guided me to do this work. And I had the blessing to join the Hippocrates team in 1975. And asked in 1980 to become the director. Little did I know what the director was, but one thing I wasn’t lacking was ambition so I said yes. And then I’ve been figuring it out ever since.
Well, you’ve mentioned a couple of my heroes, Bernard Jensen and Ann Wigmore. And, uh Ann Wigmore is probably best known for discovering and then deploying the use of wheat grass juice, but she was equally passionate about the power, like you’ve discussed a little here of sprouts. What was it like to work with her? I think she’s a legend. She’s like way ahead of her time. She wasn’t making money, she was just so mission oriented. What was that all like?
That whole generation were completely passionate, mission oriented. It was almost like a religious movement more than a health movement. And Ann was an eccentric. Ann was a genius and instinctual genius and she didn’t use intellect. And that’s a good thing by the way. Most people filter who they are and what they say and how they think through their brain. She didn’t. Everything she spoke was directly from her heart and although it was sometimes challenging to be around that, the truth of the matter is when you thought about it for more than the immediate time she was saying it, it always resonated as true. And she was certainly the top mentor, not one of my, the top mentor for me. And saw in me the ability to communicate with people and pretty much elevated me rapidly to be the one that went out and spoke about Hippocrates with her.
And we traveled the world together. We went to India, the Prime Minister brought us India. All over the United States, all over Canada. We went all over Europe. And it was just an extraordinary experience to be with her because as you remember, but many don’t know, in 1952, she was told by the Harvard doctors, she had 90 days to live. She had advanced stage four colon cancer and because she was a Lithuanian who grew up as a peasant girl in a poor village in Lithuania in Eastern Europe, she literally had a grandmother, a surrogate grandma that was the village doctor. And back then doctors didn’t make prescriptions. They used herbs. They used the bark of trees. They used love. And they used compassion.
And so when the doctors at Harvard, our top doctors in America, arguably the world, said she’s going to die. She pretty much knew what to do. And she healed herself and couldn’t contain it. In 1956, again, we opened Hippocrates. And she was the first one in history that ever said, uh, you know, it’s not about giving a pill or giving a potion, like you said, these 19 out of 20 or 18 out of 20 clinics do. They are egocentric. They think that, although we do IV’s here with whole food supplements, if you don’t change your attitude and don’t change your diet you’re not going to heal. And she knew this. So you had to change your attitude. You had to get values in your life. You had to have to have a drive. You have to exercise, you have to eat the purest, most nourishing, highest protein, highest vitamin foods.
And so she was the one who created the sprouterian movement. And you’re correct, she brought wheat grass back. You know, wheat grass throughout history, goes back thousands of years ago. Some of the listeners may not know, two ounces a week of wheat grass is the equivalent of five pounds of green, fresh organic vegetables. So every day I’m drinking two to four ounces of wheat grass juice. I’m drinking almost a quart or more of green juice, made half with sprouts, again, which is the strongest phytochemical medicines ever discovered in the history of medicine. And I’m talking about all of one type of medicine, we’re talking about the history of modern medicine. Nobody’s found anything more interesting to prevent and eliminate disease then these phytochemicals.
Yeah. Funny side story about wheat grass juice. I had a challenge that we did on camera once, probably six or eight years ago. And another woman and I were going to make each other a green smoothie and then see who could get it down. Well, she was really kind of a competitor and she found out from somebody in my camp how much I do not enjoy the taste of wheat grass juice. And so I was training. I was literally in training and I would do two ounces and then I would work it up to four ounces. And I sort of overcame my fear of the taste.
I think it all goes back to when I was pregnant with my third child. I was wheat grass juicing in the garage with a friend of mine and when I would take my turn, I would sometimes just from the smell of it get really nauseous and occasionally even throw up, which doesn’t have anything to do with wheat grass juice. More had to do with wheat grass juice while pregnant. I knew that she got wind of the fact that I didn’t enjoy the taste of wheat grass juice. So in my training one day I drank eight ounces of wheat grass juice all at one time. And Brian, I got really, like light, like foggy headed. Why would that happen?
Well, what it does is it rushes so much oxygen into the bloodstream. Sadly, even healthy people like you and me, Robyn, aren’t breathing as well as we should. We’re under stress. We’re on planes. And so when we get the type of oxygen level, we’re supposed have, you become a little lightheaded. You build up to that. You know, it’s funny you’re saying eight ounces. It almost makes me shiver. There was a two and a half month period for experimental reasons, back in the very early eighties, I was drinking a quart, minimally a quart a day. And why we did it is to decide whether or not more wheat grass was better than less.
We discovered if you’re eating a healthy plant based diet that’s organic and you’re drinking the green juices and not what I’m drinking, but 12 ounces times two, that really the average person, unless you’re seriously ill only requires two ounces twice a day because after you got above it, we started to notice the hemoglobin levels didn’t go up. So you could drink five quarts of it a day and never get that much of a benefit, so you’re just wasting a lot of energy and time making it. You can maintain on healthy people like you, a couple of ounces a day, a person who’s in the conquest of the disease, four ounces a day, and it’s ideally two and two.
So that lightheadedness doesn’t surprise me and remember it has manganese in it. What differentiates wheat grass or chlorophyll from your blood is your blood has an iron molecule in the center of it. Where the only difference, it’s exactly the same structure, Chlorophyll has manganese in the center of it. And manganese actually helps to attract waste and poisons out of your body too.
Yeah, it’s really powerfully detoxifying, wheat grass juice. I don’t know that there’s a natural substance that could compete with it. And I know Ann spent, you know, many decades of her life, bringing some public awareness that now is much, much bigger. I’m sure the legacy that you’ve helped move forward is bigger than she could’ve ever dreamed of. And I’m excited to see what’s next.
And touching on, you’ve mentioned without saying these words, but I know that we’re on the same wavelength with this and because this show is really organized around my book called “Vibe” about the vibrational frequency of everything. The vibrational frequency of human beings depending on what they eat and what they do with their emotional history and their traumas. And really the vibrational frequency of everything, including emotions. You’ve touched on the importance to you of some very high vibration emotions.
I love to hear that Hippocrates Institute, and I should mention that I’ve stayed there twice and the reason, one of the reasons, it’s one of my two favorite places in the world that I’ve studied at, is that they bring all these things together. Very clear understanding of the vibration of the treatments, of the stuff of the place itself. And you stay on site. It’s lovely. You are fed three meals a day, which I think this is super important for people who come there ill, which you say is is one of the two camps of people, people who are really well and they’re seekers or people who are sick and they’re willing to give up their addictions and come make and drink wheat grass juice and really do the work of getting well.
But I know that in addition to psychotherapy you’ve gotten well into energy medicine and so anything that you want to say about that, about what kind of work you do there in energy medicine and why you think it’s important. I would love to hear it.
Well, one of the stipulations when I became director in 1980 is that we would advance into the field of what now I call quantum human biology. An upcoming book I have, and the presentation I just made on TED is called “Quantum Human Biology”. And so this has been a deep passion of mine for more than four decades now. One of the things when guests come here, besides doing an elaborate blood test, our medical team, does something called Cyberscan, which comes out of Germany and BioWell, which comes out of Russia, that’s literally measuring the bio frequency fields of every one of the cells in your body and organ systems.
And it goes back to the work I did in the 1970’s and 1980’s until recently with my now deceased colleague who died in her late nineties called Dr Valerie Hunt. Dr. Hunt was a renowned professor and the first female professor in the University of California. She was actually hired in 1948 and Dr. Hunt was really the pioneer in what we now call biological frequency medicine because she was challenging these things back in the 1950’s and 1960’s and teaching this in formal classrooms to graduate students. Uh, Dr. Hunt literally created the suits that the men that went to the moon wore. And so she was a brilliant advanced thinker who was much more advanced than just the basic physics, chemistry and biology that was being taught. She was asking, What creates all of this?
So she taught me a long time ago that healthy cells work at 75 hertz. So since then I’ve been able to accrue a lot of data. So if you have any form of cancer your cells are working at about 10 hertz. Multiple sclerosis, 25 to 35 hertz. Dementia, 40 to 45 hertz. So as you see all these diseases literally reduce the electromagnetic frequency in and around the cell. And the real question is as I point out in my upcoming book is, Are we cells or what makes a cell?
And it goes back to what Einstein predicted 109 years ago. Einstein said, and now it’s been proven, that a subtle frequency creates all life within us and connects us to all other life. He was saying on the planet, but I’m going to say into the multiple universes, which we now know exist since 2003. And Max Planck was his teacher back 100 years ago. And Max Planck was a premier scientist and one of the founders of quantum physics. Basically why he was interested in Einstein wasn’t only from the theory of relativity, but it was Einstein was saying, the theory of relativity is not enough.
Now in 2016 it was discovered that all life comes from nothingness. And this is not a philosophical statement. It’s a fact. Nothing is the dark hole, zero point gravity. So we cannot measure it. In quantum physics, we talk about the string theory. And so every time mathematicians actually look below the neutron and the proton, they see that there’s something there that has not been able to be recorded. That’s really where all life comes from, that subtle frequency. And this is what we are employing a lot of the technologies here.
So people are getting QRS technologies here. Whole laser technologies, Proton beam technology. The cyber scan that looks at 100,000 parameters of your energy fields in your body for health and psychology. Literally a card ejects out of that having the replacements for your deficiencies and the guests wear this card on them for three months. So the future of all medicine and health care, once they find a way to make money sadly, should happen today, it’s going to be bio frequency medicine, quantum immune biology, Which we’ve been using here now for four decades successfully. We have a department of Energy Medicine here, uh, run by Dr Willicks, Bob Willicks. Bob has been a medical doctor for 50 years and he’s on the same wavelength as me. He started as a cardiovascular surgeon and realizes the true medicine of today is to touch the frequency below and behind the cell.
Well, I’m really excited about all this. I want to be the first buyer of your book coming out. And I would actually love if you would reach out and let me interview you as your book launches so we can dig deeper into this kind of stuff because this is exactly what this whole podcast was organized around and you’re the exact model of what we’re looking to emulate because people have sort of programmed themselves to believe, you know, their own obsolescence that at 65 we retire. And that’s when we basically stop doing what is meaningful right as we have enough life experience and mass consciousness to be able to bring forth the kind of work that you’re doing. But if we aren’t eating clean enough and experiencing life the way that you’ve cultivated so carefully, then we don’t have it to give back, right? As we actually amass that kind of awareness and knowledge.
And food is a major part of it. Think of your body as a pristine battery. When you came here as an infant out of your loving mother. And this pristine battery that was filled to the brim with energy and then slowly but surely through, first emotion and then non energetic food, dead food, chemicalized foods, and then lethargia and sitting around all the time. And now we add the electronics that were all frying our brains and our bodies with. And then you spend most of your time in front of a screen. I mean the poor children today, they’re spending five, six hours in front of a screen.
So you drain that battery, and you drain that battery, and so you have no energy. So then what do you go to, sugar, and you go to caffeine and you go to cooked Spaghetti and breads and pastas to get this false energy and it jacks you way up and then you fall deeper, and it jacks your way up, and you fall deeper. And when then that all fails, then you go to the doctor, this physician, and they give you a drug to balance. And then that doesn’t work, so you go to another physician. And the whole thing is a lack of energy. It just comes down to a lack of energy.
Where it all starts is in the psyche. Diet is second to the psyche, positive attitude. Elation, excitement and energy. You know that if I get you all excited and you’re laughing and running around, you instantly feel like a kid again. And if I give you a bad news, what happens to you? You feel sick to your stomach and you’re sitting on your butt and you’re not moving and you’re sad. And we’ve just got to realize the general way this has to start is through affirmative thinking, affirmative action. And then the affirmative action, which is why we give everyone psychotherapy here, is then people say, well, of course I want to fuel my body with natural whole foods that are alive.
Every single species on earth, we have 8 million species who we share this planet with. Trillions of creatures. Listen to what I’m saying, 8 million species, trillions of creatures, 100 percent of every other species and creatures in nature lives on 100 percent raw food diet. The only species that choose to cook their food are homosapiens, you and I. Are they all wrong or are we wrong? I mean, look, when you put people on live food, it becomes immediately detectable with these testing devices we have. When people come here with the BioWell, they all have empty batteries or partially empty batteries. By the end of the three week program here, almost 100 percent of them have completely charged or greatly charge their batteries. And that in and of itself is the future of medicine. We’ve got to look at the energy source.
It is the future of medicine. People are saying it all the way from mainstream folks like Dr. Oz to so many other guests on this show. I’ve recently, probably in the last week verbalized this to someone I was talking to about what creates health. And I said, you know, early in my journey when I was, you know, like you, I was overweight, I had like 21 different diagnosed diseases and I discovered eating whole mostly raw plant foods and haven’t really deviated from that in now 25 years. To me that was it. I thought that was it. I thought that was foundational and of course it’s important. It’s really, really important.
But I was verbalizing just in last week what you said, it hit me like a thunderbolt and I’ve had several other seekers, researchers, authors like you and I, say something similar to me recently, which is I think it’s becoming clear, I think the evidence is clear, that our emotional metabolism of events in our lives, our emotional response, our ability to manage our mind and our spirit is probably more important than the food that we eat. And I never thought I would say that. I never thought I’d say that, but I, I believe you. I think that’s accurate.
Yeah. This is why we combine it all. I mean, my mistake was as director and being pretty young at that point, I thought if you changed the Diet, everything would get better. Then I watched people eat exactly like I was and they weren’t deviating and they still weren’t getting better. And although I used to think that psychology and all of that we’re speaking about, was foo foo, being a male from my generation. I started to recognize, I humbled myself. And as soon as I found the proper, which was lucky, we did, psycho therapist. I would watch people transform after one, one hour session with her.
And now, as you know, we have three psycho therapists here. And all the guests enjoy them. And I’m going to tell you the most important thing we offer at Hippocrates is that. Because if you can change people’s channel, you’re watching the right show. You don’t change their channel, they’re still looking at the death and dying negative show and we don’t want that. We want them to be on the happy channel. And if you’re not on the happy channel, you’re gonna hurt yourself. Why was 120 pounds overweight, is I wasn’t a happy camper. You know, I used food as a narcotic. I used to think exercise was for jocks. I used to laugh at people that would kick a ball around and say look at what idiots they are, as I was lifting cigarettes and joints to my mouth. It’s all deceptive.
Whatever our attitude is will create the reality of our existence. And if we have an attitude that’s really fired by values, fired by virtue, inspired by passion and fulfillment, there’s never a choice other than success for you. And you don’t stop until you succeed and it’s not because you succeed to win, you succeed to be fulfilled. I actually believe why we’re on this planet, you and I and everyone listening today, is to be fulfilled and to give and to contribute. And if we get to that place, of course you don’t want to age, of course you don’t want to die, I want to live to 120 years, and the night I go to bed and not wake up the next day. That’s it.
I love that and I don’t think you’re in a place to be able to give like that or even to have your headspace be there until you get through those decades of your primary struggle in life being providing for your family. But you’re clearly not still in it like you are and traveling all over and bringing out a new book on quantum human biology because you need the cash, you now have so much to give that it’s for a completely different reason. Am I right?
Yeah, it is true. And let me also add that I’m blessed because I have a wife that I’m totally in love with. She’s my best friend. She’s my coworker. She’s as you know, the co-director here at Hippocrates and I think the male approach, yes. I’m sort of a balanced male compared to a lot of other males, but you need the female approach to this too. And whenever I get a little rough around the edges, she knows how to sand me down. And she has certain gifts and attributes that I’ll never have. And so as a team it’s much easier to achieve this, you know, having that partner in my life, having somebody that I trust explicitly, there’s nothing that she would ever ask me to do, I would doubt because that’s who she is as a human being. So you know, I don’t want to sit here and act like I’m doing all of this on my own. Having support, having love, having a partner like that is probably 50 percent of why I’m who I am today.
Oh that’s so lovely. And just everyone should know that Anna Maria is an amazing person and co-founder of Hippocrates and also very, very active there. And your four children are, I think young adults now?
I have them from 40 to 20. I have seven grandkids now. And all of them are doing well and beautiful. Living on plant based diets. And my youngest boy is half Swedish and you know, because Anna’s Swedish. He’s now learning fluent Swedish and on his way hopefully to medical school, so that some point when I’m in my eighties I turn the keys over to him and I just do what I want to do at that point. I’ll cherry pick where I lecture.
Perfect. Me Too. I love the intel you gave me a few minutes ago that 75 Hertz is what Dr. Valerie Hunt discovered is the measurable energy of healthy cells because I usually refer to the work of the late Bruce Tinio who used a BT3 monitoring system with similar numbers to what you talk about, and how we’re actually generating far less energy in a cancerous state or a cancerous tumor than healthy tissues and when people understand this and they have yet another reason to make a shift to make a shift to eating a very alkaline nutrient dense, mostly raw diet and so.
I’m going to put in the show notes, a link to the programs that Hippocrates Institute that are three programs for turning around diabetes. When I was there, I wasn’t allowed to interview anyone on camera just because the rules of Hippocrates, protecting, you know, the residents there, the patients there from, you know, being bugged by someone there holding a camera. But I met a man who had been on diabetes medications for 35 years and in a matter of weeks there at Hippocrates, his islets of langerhans and his pancreas we’re functioning and he was literally off of his diabetes meds. I was mind blown at the stories there of people who are reversing cancer. So you have a program there for diabetes, for weight loss, for cancer. I’m going to put a link in the show notes about that, but feel free to say a few words about it.
We actually have an entire department now called The weight loss academy. And it is spectacular. We’re getting results that nowhere else in the planet fat farms are not getting. You know, the average loss in the program is 22 pounds. And people get excited and we get them to move and they’re excited and they’re running around. They’re actually having fun exercising and eating this rather than saying, Oh, this is a chore and not on a diet again.
Then we have a diabetic program, as you know you met somebody, but I’ve never worked with a Type two diabetic who’s willing to permanently change her life or his life that cannot bring about their own recovery. We have a comprehensive cancer program that we have a world renowned teacher who worked with Carl Simonton on visualization techniques from the seventies until Carl’s demise, you know, about 10 years ago.
And Dr. Jan Ranake basically heads that program and it is the most advanced in all the worlds. So she’s teaching people and giving the tools and we’re using technologies like new calm that literally put you into a state of a Beta thinking so that your immune system can activate and you know, it goes on and on and on. Over the years we’re going to unfold more and more targeted programs for the world’s population because sadly there’s not another place on earth that does this type of work.
Hmm. Fascinating. If anyone listening to this wants to know where Hippocrates is, it’s in south Florida, beautiful, beautiful location. We’ll put links in the show notes to a where you can learn more about these programs. But Brian, I want to ask you a question. I’ve asked a few of our 70 year oldish interviewees on this show as we are celebrating, Learn From Our Elders, and that is, if your 69 year old self, could go back to your 35 year old self and tell him a few things that you’ve learned along the way that are life changing, that are powerful. What would you tell him? Because I think we can all be served by that.
Number one, I would be more humble. When I was 35, I would be much more humble. I mean, I was driven as most men are by testosterone and ego at that point. And my frustration was, is not everyone listened to what I said, for good reason probably because I didn’t say it in a way that was acceptable. I wasn’t open enough. I wasn’t compassionate enough. I wasn’t experienced enough. But I think there’s a lot of very wise 20 and 30 year olds. Just my case, I was a little bit too involved with thinking I had to be right most of the time.
Number two, I would have spent more time with my children. Uh, uh, like most men, Hippocrates became my favorite child, although I had four other children. And it took me until my fifties to wake up one day and said, no, you know, Hippocrates is buildings and it’s a program and it’s a wonderful team of 200 team members I have here, but it’s not my child, it’s my passion. It’s my mission. And so as most men, at least conscious men will regret, I wish I spent more time. I did more so with my 20 year old because he was the only one at home at that point. But still it was far from enough.
The last thing I wish I had done is really asked for advice from experts. A lot of this I tried to figure out myself and partly I can make an excuse, that’s probably partially true, I probably didn’t know I needed to ask experts. But you know, that has to do with inexperience sometimes. But I could have made things a lot easier for me and people around me if I brought people in who knew better than me. So there are probably the three things that I would say to my 35 year old me.
Well those are some powerful life lessons and I think that last one about when we were 35, we don’t know what we don’t know. So easy to look in the rear view mirror and say, I wish I’d known that back then. But me too on all three of those. Me Too. And I think we’re hard on men because we expect them to be all things. This renaissance man who is this, you know, compassionate service oriented partner, not the neanderthal club the beast and drag it into the cave and call it good and leave her to do everything else. We expect them to be great fathers and really show up for them big. So just on behalf of modern enlightened consciousness, I just want to say that I’m glad you did figure that out and lots of people haven’t. And it’s hard. It’s hard to be building your career in your thirties and forties and having to give your career so much. And yet that’s right when your family needs so much of you too, right?
It’s true, but to me it just shows the state of affairs. We have to have a movement in the beginning of the 21st century where women are once again asking for love and respect. I mean, what kind of a sick culture are we, that our mothers, our daughters, our sisters, our wives, we don’t honor and respect. And until we do that, humanity is always going to suffer. We’ve got to have some kind of a balance here. Because, look, we men are like the man I was before and I still struggle with, you know, a little bit, we are very good focused on one thing, you give us two things, we start to fall apart, by the third thing, we’re completely out of our minds.
Where if we could ask, our wives, our friends, she shouldn’t be the lady, the woman, she should be our friends our wife our partner our coworker, by the way, what do you think about this? So I’ve learned over the last 25, 30 years whenever I’m making my male like decision, uh, give it to several women I trust around me. And quite often they come up with, most often, not quite often, most often they come up with things I never thought about. And so what a world we have that we’re still having to teach men to be respectful of people that they’re married to, that they have children that are daughters. I mean, it just angers me. That’s all I can say.
Well, thank you so much for sharing that and for being willing to be so transparent and humble. It’s really refreshing. Tell us one more thing before we go. I so appreciate your time today. I know how fully scheduled you are. How can people learn more about you? How can they follow you? How can they learn more about the mission of Hippocrates? We’ll put links in the show notes and I think you do personal consultation. How does that work? How can people find you?
If people have a need, they can call up my assistant here at Hippocrates, Brain Clemens assistant, and they can make a scheduled appointment, And usually they’re sending in medical reports or questions that our team looks it over and do that focus consultation with them. Number two, you can look at us on the web at hiippocratesinstitute.org We’re a nonprofit organization, so hippocrates, it took me three years of working here before I figured out how to write this, H I P P O C R A T E S, Hippocrates institute dot org, And then you can call us if somebody has an urgent need. We have people on our phones here all the time at 561-471-8876 five.
It’s always nice to talk to you. You as busy as you used to be, Robyn?
No I’m not. I moved to Park City. And I’m actually working part time now. Just focusing on things like this, like the podcast that I love. So I’m going to be doing more humanitarian work, haven’t talked a lot on the podcast about that, but I’m excited to be doing more for my family and more for the community that doesn’t involve working for a living. But still very much excited about the future of what GreenSmoothieGirl can bring forward. And I’m really, really inspired by how much you’re still producing and so hope to see you soon. Hope to show up at Hippocrates some time, I’m watching for that opportunity. And thank you so much for being with us today.
As I’m leaving, let me just remind all of you. You are here to find your passion. You are here to fulfill your life. Don’t let life slip by without that happening, God bless and be well.
