Aug. 11, 2010 - PRLog -- A Detox program based on the historic wisdom of the Father of Medicine - Hippocrates - "Let Food Be Thy Medicine."

The Hippocrates Health Institute in Florida, USA, is considered the world’s leading health spa and is run by doctors and scientists. The teachings are based on “live food”, the raw food diet. The Hippocrates Institute’s philosophy is founded on the belief that a pure enzyme-rich diet, complemented by positive thinking and non-invasive therapies, are essential elements on the path to optimum health.

SIS Spa in Spain is proud to announce that they have created, in collaboration with Beverley Pugh, the first Hippocrates Health Educator in Spain, a unique Detox retreat in Mallorca based on the principles of the Hippocrates Health method of living food.

What is raw food?
Raw living food is food that has not been cooked over 115ºF so consequently it is still raw, eg in its natural state. Any temperature above this one officially ‘cooks’ the food killing all the enzymes. The enzymes are what makes the food alive and are necessary in order to digest the food correctly. What is also missing from cooked food is oxygen, a substantial amount of vitamins, minerals and water, important nutrients in order to build and maintain a strong and healthy body.

Raw food is some times also called ‘living food’ because it has not been killed or destroyed by heat. The word living food specially refers to the foods that are still growing when consumed, such as germinated seeds and sprouts, germinated legumes, wild green herbs, wheat grass, algae and any foods that are taken from the earth, plant or tree. Raw living food, does not include, bread cereals, rice, pasta or any refined or processed products, canned, frozen, or micro waved.  

“We are what we eat,” says Beverley Pugh and continues “What we put into our bodies has never been so important. We need to be eating more live food, food that is full of nutrients and vitamins which will give our body life and make our bodies strong. I’ve never had so much energy and I’m never ill. The raw food diet is being used to cure serious illnesses and also help people lose weight and cleanse their bodies¨.

What is Detox?
Every day we are exposed to external toxins from our environment and internal toxins produced as the by product of our digestive and metabolic processes. Fortunately, our bodies are generally good at filtering out the bad stuff before it gets to us. But when the body is exposed to higher than average toxins, perhaps because of a stressful or not so healthy lifestyle, it would be good to give the body some support by detoxifying and cleansing the body from the inside from time to time. A Detox program can support the body in its natural function of detoxification, enabling it to cope better with the daily stresses of modern life and establishing a higher level of health.

A Detox cure works in two ways. On the one hand, you stop eating and drinking anything that reduces the efficiency of the cleansing process, this can mean anything from no alcohol to no sugar. On the other hand you increase the intake of antioxidant food and liquids that help the body get rid of toxins.

Why is a raw food Detox cure so effective?
A raw food diet is perfectly effective to detoxify the body. The fresh vegetable sprout juices and wheatgrass are full of chlorophyll which is deeply effective in detoxing the body.    Chlorophyll neutralizes toxins in the body, helps purify the liver and improves blood sugar problems.

Wheatgrass and vegetable sprout juices are a superior detoxification agent compared to carrot and other fruit and vegetable juices. Dr Earp Thomas of the Hippocrates Health Institute, says that 15 pounds of wheatgrass is the equivalent of 350 pounds of carrots, lettuce, celery, and so forth.
