Are You Ready to Supercharge Your Health, Starting Now?

 

You can easily banish weight – detoxify – energise – de-stress – youthify –

“simply, safely, easily”.

 

Dr Ann Wigmore’s Wheatgrass and Living Foods Program

 

Long ago, Hippocrates, the founder of medicine, demonstrated that wholesome natural foods could restore and maintain vibrant health. Our program – which excludes bread, flesh, dairy products and cooked and processed foods – has shown thousands of people around the world, since 1960, that ideal health is natural for all of us.

Your body detoxifies and regenerates itself. If you have proper nutrients, you can enjoy life without illness or pain.

At Hippocrates Health Centre of Australia, you experience complete health education – a time-tested program that fosters your internal cleansing, regeneration, revitalisation, rejuvenation – health, vigor, longevity, youthful slimness.

You reduce weight. Since 1985, all of the thousands who have attended Hippocrates have lost weight. For example, Richard Lemmon of Sydney dropped 10kgs in just 5 days – “simply, safely, easily.”

You can overcome allergies. Although many people are allergic to cooked wheat and bread, no one has experienced any allergy to our gluten-free organic wheatgrass juice.

Your entirely organic raw vegan meals will consist of delicious fresh foods created lovingly by master food preparers. Your foods will include fruits, vegetables, sprouts, nuts, seeds, greens and juices. Your meals become adventures, with distinct flavours, textures and sensory appeal.

You will learn and experience at Hippocrates:

  • Yoga – Goals and affirmations – Raw vegan menu planning
  • Wheatgrass growing and use – Gut health and gluten – Sustainable weight loss
  • Reducing stress – Sprouting – Meditation – Visualisation
  • Dehydrating foods – Self-improvement – Detoxification
  • Positive thinking – Kitchen equipment – Transitional foods
  • Permaculture (organic gardening) – Grander Water 

TRANQUIL COUNTRY SETTING – PRIVATE ENSUITE ROOMS – LARGE SWIMMING POOL

COSY SPA AND STEAM ROOM – SPACIOUS TENNIS COURT   

MINIMUM ATTENDANCE: 7 DAYS, 6 NIGHTS, STARTING ON SUNDAY, ENDING ON SATURDAY.

A recent attendee referred to our raw, plant-based food as the “Vegan Ritz”, and Diana Baldry said, “My time at Hippocrates has changed my life on all levels, physically, emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually. The work you are doing at Hippocrates and the service you offer is so necessary.”

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?  You may view our thousands of documented success stories at https://hippocrates.com.au/great-results-over-the-years-hippocrates-success-stories-since-our-founding-in-1985/

As you have observed by reading this web page, the HHC Program is highly disciplined, and not suitable for everyone.  It’s for people who sincerely desire results — such as the thousands of people whose names appear above — and who are willing to do the work necessary to achieve those results.  Are you one of these people?

WHAT SHOULD I BRING WITH ME?  Comfortable clothing – walking shoes – swimsuit – sarong or light dressing gown – hair dryer. 

WHAT ARE THE SURROUNDS LIKE?  Many have likened our Nature Refuge to a National Park.  We’re in the foothills of the Springbrook Range, bordering on Mudgeeraba Creek.  Acreage cattle and horse properties neighbor us.  But we, instead, have cooperated with local native birds and animals (such as the iconic koala we recently spotted and the lovely king parrot who just flew by) to restore our formerly denuded grounds to their original native Queensland bush woodland splendor –creating a Nature Refuge that fosters healing, learning, contemplation and spiritual connection. Surrounded by lush greenery and the healing sounds of nature, you can embark on a journey to rejuvenate your mind, body and soul.

WHAT HEALTH PRODUCTS DO YOU RECOMMEND? Of course, the products shown at www.hippocrates.com.au and www.doctorsaredangerous.com.

Our commitment to a raw, organic vegan lifestyle extends to our practices – no animal products are used during the retreats, and our natural Alaya body products are free from animal ingredients.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN ESTABLISHED?  With a legacy spanning nearly four decades, our retreat has stood the test of time. Recently refurbished and reopened, we continue to evolve and enhance our program to provide you with a simple, warm, inclusive, enjoyable and effective learning experience. 

ARE THERE ANY MAJOR PREPARATIONS I SHOULD UNDERTAKE?  YES!  During the weeks prior to your arrival here, we encourage you to begin detoxing by abstaining from: caffeine – refined sugar – artificial sweeteners – refined carbohydrates – alcohol – tobacco – vaping – illegal drugs – barbecued, fried, microwaved, manufactured, junk and animal-based foods. And we suggest you now determine your current reaction time (a measure of your biological age) at https://www.justpark.com/creative/reaction-time-test/.  We also suggest that you now write and save a message to yourself: “What do I plan to achieve at Hippocrates?”

MAY I BOOK ONLINE?  No.  Since 1985, we have always taken bookings by telephone only.  We have found it essential that you fully understand what our program is about, and that we learn about you, your commitment to adopting new habits, and the goals you intend to achieve — through warm, friendly human conversation,

WHEN ARE YOU AVAILABLE BY PHONE?   Monday through Friday, 8 am to 2 pm, Queensland time.  07 5530 2860.

Those who embark on our retreats consistently leave 2-4 kilograms or more lighter, liberated from arthritic inflammation and the burden of bodily aches and pains, released from depressed feelings, with a renewed and vital life force ready to take on what’s next.

 And if you, like the thousands of others before you, follow the HHC Program, you can change your life for the better — beginning today, and perhaps into the next century.  

You can create the excellent health and long life you and your family deserve.  But only you can commit to doing so.

Your health, harmony and rejuvenation can come together in perfect balance. We look forward to welcoming you.

Ronald   Kate   Chris   Teresa   Kaedy  Cindy  Naomi   John    All of us.
