Day 2 at Hippocrates


First thing today was having a blood draw, blood pressure taken and weight check.

Blood Pressure: 128/80
Weight: 173

I was surprised by the weight because I was 177 when I left home, so already some improvement!

More mandatory orientations:

Internal Awareness which all about our digestive system and the importance of colon health (enemas and wheatgrass implants and colon hydrotherapy).

Wheatgrass Instruction which did not have too much new information for me since I have been doing wheatgrass shots on and off for a couple of years ever since I attended a lecture that Brian Clement gave in Fairfield but nevertheless they have electronic wheatgrass juicers here, so it was good to learn how to use them. I currently have a manual wheatgrass juicer and I kinda like it cause you get to have a mini arm workout while you juice.

The afternoon consisted of back-to-back lectures. I don't have my notes here with me at the moment, so I can't write them all down right now. Additionally, it's actually Sunday night that I'm writing this since Internet time is so limited. But anyone who wants to know can shoot me an email and I'll be glad to share what the topics were or when I have time, I'll just update this post.

A special treat was having the Wheatgrass Band play in the evening, of which Dr. Brian Clement is a member - he plays the drums. It was a rare treat to see him casual for once and not in a suit. This evening was the first time I saw Dr. Anna Maria Clement in person and she absolutely lovely, gracious and angelic. And Viktoras Kulvinskas was dancing up a storm!

The music was a little too loud for my sensitive ears so I grabbed my laptop and got to check emails until 9PM when the building closed. My room doesn't have wifi, so I'm having some Facebook and email withdrawal and there is one TV that I know of  but only for DVD use. It's actually very wonderful and calming to not be aware of what's going on in the world (world news, local news, political campaigns, etc), but I gotta admit I'm really missing my daily dose of "The King of Queens"!

No really bad detox symptoms for me except a little bit of a headache which I expected since I drink a cup of coffee everyday. I've come off caffeine a couple of times before, so I knew I was going to have to deal with that. That and the more intense-than-usual desire to withdraw into myself and be left alone but it's kinda hard when everyone is new and trying to get to know each other and socialize. But it was all good.  Everyone is very nice and sweet and everyone actually says Hi when they pass by which anyone that knows me knows that's a bit of an issue for me at work where most people look right at you and look down to the ground and can't even mumble a simple Hi/Hello. They not only don't initiate it, but they also don't reply.  Oh well.
