THE MORNING SHOW
Brian Clement, L.N.C.
Co-Director of Hippocrates Health Institute
A typical American growing up in the New Jersey/New York area, Brian 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, he was dating a girl whose best friend’s boyfriend was 30—and a vegetarian. 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. For the first year and a half, he kept his vegetarian diet a secret from his family. Yet after losing 120 pounds and experiencing the difference in his health, he came out of the proverbial closet (much to his family’s dismay!) and became a complete vegan three years later.
-Hippocrates Institute has been around for 60 years. Brian has been involved for 45 of those years.
-Brian shares what he has for breakfast and why a midday meal should be the biggest of the day.
-Are there downsides to sprouts?
-Broccoli sprouts 50 times more effective than other sprouts at preventing cancer, because of their sulfurophane content.
-Dr. Williams in Oregon – Linus Pauling Foundation. Good info source.
-Every seed has a natural pesticide. Enzyme inhibitors destroyed in soaking and sprouting process. Seeds have 8 times more nutrition when sprouted.
-Seeds have an awareness and know what they need. Grains, other than rice, soaked for 8 hours, are at their peak in 2 days. Sunflower, wheatgrass, pea green peaks in 7 days. Mung beans do better in the dark, in temperate climates, planting deep, pushing against the weight of soil. Soak them for 12 hours, sprout for 5.
-See all of Brian’s books at Hippocratesinst.org. His LifeForce book is about the pharmacy of sprouts.
-2 oz. of wheatgrass juice (8-10 oz. of grass) nutritionally equivalent to 5 lbs. of vegetables.
-Sprouts don’t only provide nutrients. They have the ability to provide the electromagnetic frequency that every cell works at. Every creature inherently eats a raw food diet.
-Something dead never gives you life. Disease-preventing elements in raw foods are no longer there after cooking.
-Only US male weightlifter at Rio Olympics has been a vegan since 2014.
-Brian shares his story of how he became a plant-based eater and weightlifter.
-Every human being can do a Hippocrates Institute Living Foods diet. Venus Williams is an example of what the diet can do. Need to do weightlifting for protein to put muscles on the body.
-Living Food for Optimum Health – Brian’s top pick of his 20 books.
-Deep Ocean water good for sprouts. 5% TDS recommended.
-Causes of GI diseases – eating things we were never meant to eat. Long intestinal tract is meant for carbohydrates. Meats take 3 days to go through, needs high acid to digest. GMO foods – Jeffrey Smith good authority. GMO high fructose corn syrup perforates intestinal tract.
-Cultured foods, prebiotics, and probiotics good. Saunas good. 87% more heavy metals come out in infrared, but also minerals. Take ionic minerals like food in plant-based raw foods. Sea vegetables good.
-Brown fats are good, fed by oleic acid. White fat – mostly bad, from saturated fat. Andreas Seed Oils – good. Chia, flax, walnut oils – good. A little oil is healthy.
-Free conference, The Real Truth About Health, in Orlando, FL, Sept. 9-18. 30 experts.
-Weston A. Price didn’t promote meat eating, did promote raw foods.
-How does a raw food diet affect tooth enamel? Modern hybrid fruits not recommended. Need mineral rich veges. Carrots and beets have too much sugar.
-Angel Juicer, Green Star, Green Power – double auger juicers, good machines, slow-grinding.
-Under normal conditions, need half your body weight in ounces per day. Add 10 more ounces with sauna use. Add more for sweaty exercise.
-Number one oil for men is pumpkin seed oil. Black cumin oil is good. Chia, flax, hemp oils good.
-Bridge of raw gourmet foods helps when starting a raw foods diet.
-Blending destroys nutrition. Sunflower greens, mung bean sprouts, clover sprouts – recommended for every day.
-What about Dr. Joel Wallach’s recommendation of 6 eggs a day?
-1 hr./day of aerobic exercise a day is perfect.
