Sara’s Story

I began my journey of discovering the disease-preventing and healing power of raw, plant-based food at the #1 alternative medicine facility in the world, Hippocrates Health Institute. I was so impressed with the program that I not only enrolled in the program immediately but also, upon graduation, I accepted an offer to work at the Institute. Dr. Brian Clement, director of HHI, offered me the opportunity to put into practice everything I had learned. This experience taught me the powers of consuming living foods that nourish, cleanse and alkalinize the body; the importance of food combination; and the powers of wheatgrass. During my stay at HHI, I have witnessed remarkable transformations of people’s health, physically, mentally, and emotionally. Conventional medicine doctors would call these recoveries from “terminal illnesses” a miracle. I, on the other hand, call it the power of raw, plant-based foods “God’s Medicine”. I believe the food we choose to consume plays a vital role in healing the body, mind, and soul.

I had a personal experience with the deadly disease cancer. At my yearly checkup, the gynecologist told me I had cervical cancer and the growth was the size of a golf ball. I looked at her and smiled. Confused as to why I was smiling, she said, “Nobody smiles when I deliver this devastating news. Why are you smiling?” I looked in her eyes, and with a smile still on my face, I said, “Thank you for telling me. Now I can go home and do the right thing. I can assure you that within a month, it won’t be there.” When I told her what I was going to do to get rid of the cancer, she thought I was crazy. She didn’t believe it was possible, because all she knew was the traditional way of treating cancer with chemo and radiation. In my eyes, traditional medicine only puts a Band-Aid on the symptoms. It does not cure the cause, and therefore, most of the time, the disease returns.

Without wasting time, I immediately started my detox with wheatgrass juice and green juices. Within a month of cleansing, I knew I had gotten rid of the cancer. I made an appointment to see my gynecologist, and when she examined me, she couldn’t see the tumor anymore. I couldn’t help myself but say, “You see. I told you so.” Of course, she hated to be wrong, so she said, “Just because I don’t see it, that doesn’t mean that you got rid of it. The only way to know for sure is by doing a blood test.” I gave her my arm so she could draw blood, confident that the test would come back negative. And guess what? It did. She called it a miracle.
