Hippocrates Diet & Health Program
The Hippocrates Diet book By Ann Wigmore was probably THE first book I ever read about raw food. I pretty much consider it “required reading” for anyone new to juicing or the raw diet lifestyle in general.
Dr Wigmore starts right at the start, and goes into all the whys and hows of raw food diet benefits. The book is a primer on all things “raw”. It is chock full of raw diet recipes from making your own delicious and healthy fermented drinks such as rejuvelac to how to grow and juice your own wheatgrass.
Dr Ann Wigmore‘s book was where it all first started me off, and inspired me to go and stay at my local Hippocrates Institute center for a week. While there, I was exposed to many things that were totally new to me – and it really changed my life completely. The raw food diet benefits go way, way, way beyond just simply feeling better.
I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn about the raw diet. It costs just a little over $10 and is an investment that will keep on rewarding you. I have other books of Ann Wigmore as well (I LOVE her information) but this is the best, and covers almost everything.

Customer Reviews of Ann Wigmore – Hippocrates Diet
5 out of 5 stars: YES! Reviews by A Customer:
What can be said about Ann Wigmore and this book, except for the incredible importance and wisdom they have brought. If you want to heal and abide by the healthiest and most natural diet in the world, this book is it. I say this after 20 years of diet, research, and lifestyle experimentation.
I am a healthy surfer (but I also work full-time), and say to you all- let the sunshine into your being- drink wheatgrass and read this book. The other best health book in the world is “The Miracle of Fasting” by the other late and great Paul C. Bragg. He and Ann Wigmore were amazing, courageous, and self-disciplined people in the field of health. These books shall survive them, and do us all well, forevemore. I’m “stoked”!
5 out of 5 stars: Read, then act on this!!! By My Own Mind
This book spells out easily and completely the way to take charge and improve your health now. If you never start, you will not begin to reverse the years of food, chemical, and environment poisoning that your body has become accustomed to leading to the onset of the major diseases and ill health conditions that his generation is experiencing in proportions never before known.
In conjunction with other Wheatgrass and Ann Wigmore books, I feel better without medicine or pharmaceuticals of any kind in only a few short weeks. I lost 15 pounds the first two weeks without strenuous dieting. My craving for sweets has disappeared without any thought or struggle. Understanding these simple practices of biology is made easy through these books from the Hippocrates Institute.
5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST READ!, By

Once I read Ann Wigmore’s book on Wheatgrass it really sparked an interest in live food and health. Ann Wigmore is a true pioneer and has left such a gift to all of us if only we can open our mind to the concept of healthy nutrition. I wish her teachings were in every school and more people would gain the wisdom this wonderful woman made her life’s work.
If you are suffering from illness this is a great option..change your diet! It makes so much sense and to see people eating crap and then wondering why they are sick is so frustrating when the answers are in books like Ann Wigmore’s.
I have seen people go into remission from cancer from adopting this lifestyle …I pray the live food evolution will sweep the continent and more people can live a truly healthy life..I cant say enough about the changes it has made in my own life and the lives of others! I would also recommend a dvd called “Ann Wigmore’s Living Foods Lifestyle” filmed at the Natural Health Institute in Puerto Rico..it is a hands on guide that shows you how to make meals, how to sprout, compost … so much interesting info and interviews with live foodists .. I thoroughly enjoyed it and it was so much better watching a dvd and seeing things first hand.
