Friend we’re in for a treat today.
I’ll be honest, I thought this conversation might be overwhelmingly raw food focused and a little too science’y and yet quite the opposite. It was inspiring, hopeful, warm and I found myself both hanging off Dr Brian Clements every word and also planning changes to the way I eat!
Dr Brian Clement is director of Hippocrates Health Institute set on sixty tropical acres in West Palm Beach, Florida. At the turn of the twenty-first century the Institute received the notable award as the world’s foremost healing centre.
“Brian and his team have developed a state of the art program for health maintenance and recovery. With hundreds of thousands of people participating in the 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.”
He has authored more than 25 books, filmed more than 2000 hours of educational material, and is one of the most prolific experts in the comprehensive arenas that manifest exceptional wellbeing.
Brian has lectured in over 47 states and 28 countries at establishments that include: Harvard, Regents College in London and countless universities and institutions.
I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
Specifically I’d like to cover:
- Brian’s becoming vegan story.
- The experience transitioning from a strict vegan diet to a raw living foods diet.
- What are living foods and how do they differ from the SAD.
- “Life-force” the inherent electrical charge from nature that regenerates human health.
- Type 2 diabetes is not a disease. It’s a lifestyle choice.
- Essential fats. What fats should we be eating and what should we be avoiding?
- Your mind is the most powerful agent for healing or demise.
That time flew!
There were many questions we couldn’t get to however I think this is a really good starting point and if you’re feeling inspired to dig deeper with the amazing work done at Hippocrates Health Institute I’ll have you all linked up below.

I’ll also link to a couple of topics that especially jump out at me as a personal trainer…
- Poison Poultry: How Eating Birds (and their eggs) Destroys Your Health. (YouTube)
- Killer Clothes / Why women shouldn’t be wearing lycra 24/7. (Book)
The approach at Hippocrates Health Institute is unique and as such you’ll see online they get some negative push back.
I’m learning that’s natural and normal. If you’re creating big change – even hugely positive change – if you’re sticking your head above the crowd you’ll get criticism. What I love about the guidance offered is it’s both science based and heart based. The intention to: “guide guests back to a semblance of balance and wellbeing, the ultimate goal being the birth of a healthy individual who contributes to a healthy humanity.”
