Hippocrates' postcard location in West Palm Beach


Hippocrates Health Institute
1465 Skees Rd.
West Palm Beach, FL 33411

Operating on the belief that a vegan, living, enzyme-rich diet — when complemented by regular exercise, positive thinking and noninvasive therapies like colonics — is integral to your health and wellbeing, Hippocrates Health Institute is renowned as a leader in natural and alternative healthcare. Its postcard location in West Palm Beach is a pretty decent perk, too. Detoxification at this idyllic retreat is an affair for mind, body and spirit. The three-week Life Transformation Program features daily lectures on health and healing; wheatgrass therapies, which have a long, storied history at Hippocrates (founder Ann Wigmore healed herself of colon cancer using them); cardio and strength training; infrared saunas, ozone pools, weekly massages and bio-energy treatments. When the going gets tough (and it will), do not hesitate to take advantage of Hippocrates's emotional counseling, psychotherapy and stress management services.
