I read the article that temp posted here about Brian Clement. I hope everyone does not rush to judgement against Brian. This post is in defense of Brian Clement and Hippocrates Institute

First of all, Brian always teaches about taking responsibility for one's health. Going to HHI will empower one with tools. One will learn the best of their knowledge and how to apply it at home. Is this a guarantee that one will correctly apply it at home? Not really because time, finances and beginner's ignorance sometimes cause one to stumble or be delayed. It is okay to go to this kind of institute when one is facing death, but it is far better to go when one is in health to either prevent one's own problems or help a loved one in a TIMELY manner.

When one goes to the Gerson institute in Mexico for cancer, they pay about $15,000 for three weeks. There is no promise of a cure, because the program takes 2 years! Three weeks is just to get one started.

The last time I called, a basic 3 week stay at HHI is $5,000. So for $18,000, a lot more time must have been given to these people, plus a lot more modalities.

I am an herbalist, so of course, I would recommend an intense herbal therapy in addition to anything Hippocrates or the Gerson institute would recommend. Yet, that doesn't mean that those institutes should offer intense herbal therapies. Dr. Richard Schulze was shut down for his intense herbs which yielded amazing cures of AIDS, end stage cancers, etc. I don't think a company could offer intense herbal therapies in a live-in situation due to the litigious society we are in.

So, to avoid human error, such conservative institutes avoid the therapies, like intense herbal dosages, that could actually speed up the healing so much faster. But that is how they stay in being conservative.

I think going in to the HHI, one must realize that they are going in for a more conservative, slower approach. They can't blame HHI for the results they get, because intrinsic to the whole approach is to take responsibility for oneself and one's family. HHI is teaching a's not just a detox that you do once a year.

Moreover, there must be so much more detective work that must be done. Did anyone ever watch "House", the doctor who visited people's homes for clues to their illnesses? My friend Tom Rodgers has been to homes that he found leaked carbon monoxide. He has a very sensitive detector. Especially with poor people, people living on reservations, cheap homes can be built this way. This is one of his sites:

Okay, so the bottom line is that HHI cannot do everything and cannot be everything (master herbalist, private detective, financier). They can only offer a piece of the puzzle and equip one with some tools.

HHI is so vital to the vegan community and actually to the whole world. I hope people will rally to support and defend HHI and Brian Clement. Clearly, these families need help too.

It takes a village to raise a child. United we stand, divided we fall.

P.S. This article questions Brian Clement's education. I want to say something about this. I truly don't think where Brian got his diploma from matters. What matters is what you do with your degree and license! I have a friend who is an NMD, who went to the top school in Oregon and in order to make money, he is just a supplement pusher and is helping people on a really cosmetic level, not doing the kind of work that Brian does. I have met so many naturopaths that can help shrink tumors but can make no claim of curing cancer. Brian Clement's naturopathic clinical experience puts others to shame. He is not an herbalist that I can learn from, but surely I have been learning food science from him. Whether Brian got his degrees from correspondence schools or in-person classroom schools makes no practical difference to me as his student, because he tests all the theories on the vast number of people at HHI, and the fact that HHI follows a person's blood tests for the rest of their lives show the level of responsibility they take. Brian also has 4 children! It's amazing what Brian and Anna have accomplished. If Brian did have to take some classes via correspondence, it's totally understandable given his role at HHI.
