Dr. Brian Clement, Director of the Hippocrates Institute, explains how.
Last month, I visited with my friend Jackie Campisi (and husband Greg) in Stonington, CT. While enjoying a delicious and super-healthy, raw-vegan lunch on their patio, Jackie told me how she’d recently followed the Ann Wigmore, Hippocrates Institute approach in recovering from stage 4 metastatic cancer in her spine.

Hear Dr. Clement in Mystic, CT, on Sept. 9. Click here to view the flyer and to purchase your early-bird ticket for $20. The event will be held at the Mystic Marriott, beginning at 7 pm. I am unable to attend but donated a stack of signed copies of my book that will be used as door prizes.
Also, Jackie has already printed 300 copies of my 4Leaf Survey (now used by eCornell) and will offer them to anyone who’d like to estimate the percent of their daily calories from whole, plant-based foods.
Dr. Clement will speak on the topic “Power of Live Food to heal Diseases and Conquer Aging.” In this lecture, he will address the half-century of work on disease and longevity conducted at the renowned Hippocrates Institute. These lifestyle protocols enabled Jackie to decrease inflammation & strengthen her immune system.
Reversing or Curing Cancer. Fact or Fiction? Unlike heart disease and type 2 diabetes—which are both almost totally reversible with a whole food, plant-based diet—curing cancer with food is a different story. The problem is that cancer may be growing in your body for 15 or 20 years before it can even be detected. And, oftentimes, it’s simply too late.
So the real name of the game is PREVENTION. You may have heard the phrase, “Your genes load the gun, but lifestyle choices (particularly our diet) pull the trigger.” As Dr. T. Colin Campbell (Cornell) has found in his fifty-year career in nutritional science, the cancer gene can be “turned on—AND off” with the introduction and removal of animal protein. (See video below).
In other words, you may have all the genes necessary for breast cancer to grow, but if you never turn those genes on, the cancer never begins. Take a few minutes to view this 10-minute video of Dr. Campbell, speaking last year on this subject.
No hard data on humans. Unfortunately, there are no studies on humans that prove the above. My “dream study” would be to put 1,000 people on a whole food, plant-based diet at birth and then monitor them for life. I would wager that NONE of them would die of cancer.
And because I believe that, I decided (at age 58) to eat a whole food, plant-based diet for the rest of my life. If there are some un-detected tumors in my body, then I am confident that my 4Leaf diet-style will either slow, stop or reverse them. Want to find out if you’re eating at the 4Leaf level?

Our nation’s “War on Cancer” began 43 years ago and is, by far, the longest running war in the history of the United States. In fact, it’s longer than all of our military wars combined.
