An integral part of the Hippocrates Docs, Just 1 Thing 4 Health Program is to introduce to you the Doctors who are committed to living, sharing and teaching their patients a Whole Food, Plant-Based Diet and Lifestyle. Our mission also includes introducing you to our growing family of Professional Health and Wellness Practitionerswho are on this journey, passionate about what they do, how they live, and who want to support you on your journey, right along side our Doctors.

It starts now and it is also what will help us to bring you even more value within the Premium Membership of J1T4H, launching in 2019.

This week, our Featured Professional Health Practitioner is Alicia Sirkin, Founder and CEO of the Sirkin Creative Living Center in downtown Miami and Coconut Grove, Florida. Here is a bit about Alicia and you’ll find out her J1T4H Challenge for you.

Early in her healthcare career, Alicia recognized the value of cultivating a healthy lifestyle with education, diet, fitness, and a commitment to overall wellness. Her mission began while teaching her dental patients how to maintain healthy teeth and gums. She later expanded her focus to educate the public to take responsibility for creating positive outcomes in health and life through personal choices. Currently, as a holistic coach and leading authority in the field of Bach Flower Remedies, Alicia is a well-known speaker, educator, researcher, and internationally published author.

Alicia works with clients who need structured guidance to make tough life decisions, such as making career changes, re-envisioning life after the kids have grown, and coping with personal or family health issues. She is the Founder and director of The Sirkin Creative Living Center, LLC, and is published in books and magazines. Her scientific research is published in the Journal of Complementary Health Practice Review. She has lectured at national conferences and is a frequent guest on radio and television programs.

Alicia’s medical background and 28-year advocacy of whole foods, Bach  Flower remedies, the value of a positive outlook and inner peace, gives Alicia a unique framework from which to help others discover the best within themselves. Her coaching practice includes working with a variety of executives across the healthcare, finance, education, hospitality, and consumer health product industries.

In her challenge video, Alicia helps you to see the possibilities of successfully getting through the Holidays when temptations may be high. She says, “You Can Do This!”and using some of the tips she shares, You Can!!

Are you constantly reminded how easy it is to fall under the pressure of family and friends and slip back into the unhealthy eating habits and patterns you once had? There is a way to stop the roller coaster, stay strong and on track with your decision to eat a WFPB diet and live more healthy, especially during this Holiday Season. Watch the video and use these Tips so you can Enjoy Your Holiday Season more!

Alicia’s Challenge to you:
Be Mindful During the Holidays and Make Conscious Choices to
Stay On Track and Be More Healthy and Vibrant into the New Year

The holiday’s are wrought with emotional ups and downs and pressure from friends and family. What we want to do is to stay on course. There are ways to do that.

The key is setting the intention to be true to yourself, the goals you’ve set for your life and health, and prepare before spending time with others (family, friends, associates) who may not be on a WFPB diet, like you. You too deserve to Enjoy Your Holidays!!

To assist you on your journey, here are some easy to follow steps to help you meet This Week’s Challenge:

Sticking closely with your new WFPB lifestyle practices and moving through the Holidays, into the New Year doesn’t have to be daunting. Consciously and mindfully being aware of what you want for better health is a big key to your success. You have to know what you want, why you want it and Alicia gives you some tips to help you stay on course.

If you get off track, you can get back on with these healthy conscious ideas.

1. Tune in to the rebroadcast of the 16 weeks of videos and content from J1T4H.

2. Use the 5 Steps for Transformation to help you move through life and the challenges of staying on the WFPB lifestyle you’ve started with.
    [1] Discovery: In self-discovery, take account of how you feel and how you move through your life. Change any negative self-talk and decide to be positive. “I know I can do this!”
    [2] Goal Setting: Set a strong intention to be well, whole, healthy and vibrant.
    [3] Action: Set small steps to help cement in the new neuro pathways and behaviors to support you. There are a couple of great ideas that can help you.
1. Eat your WFPB meal before going out to meet friends.
2. Take a dish that you know is tasty with you to the party. You will not only have something for yourself to eat, you’ll have brought something to share with others.
    [4] Enable the Change:  Use journaling, meditation, take a walk in nature, do movement and exercise, or do breathing work. It opens the flow of positivity and energy.
    [5] Repeat the Healthy Patterns Being Established: Repeating these healthy behavior patterns gives the brain the opportunity to assist you by reprogramming the neuro pathways, making it more familiar for you to do again, and again.

Be mindful, breathe, and move through the Holidays more easily. Making conscious choices with your foods, deciding to do what your body needs to be healthy, whole and vibrant and enjoy yourself in the process. The more you do it, the more fun it will get.

3. Join a community of like-minded people to share what you’ve learned and to learn more. There you will make connections, form lasting relationships and move forward with even more strength and companionshihp on your journey towards living a whole food, plant-based diet and lifestyle.

The 7 Original Heroes of the Movement

Honoring the 7 Original Heroes
of the Whole Food, Plant-Based Lifestyle Movement

Honoring Those Who Continue to Lead the Way…

Over the next several weeks and months, we will share a special video from each one of the 7, that is hosted by a Hippocrates Doc who will comment on the subject matter and answer any questions you may have. We are honored to join forces with these Original 7 and every other doctor who is a part of the Movement to bring a greater level of awareness, health and wellness to adults, children, pets, animals and the planet.

Enjoy what we’ve put together honoring the 7 Original Heroes of the Whole Food, Plant-Based Lifestyle Movement.

This week, we want you to get to know 
Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn
Physician, Author, and former Olympic Rowing Champion, advocating a diet designed to prevent coronary disease, cardiovascular and other chronic diseases

Dr. Esselstyn promotes a diet designed to prevent coronary disease and cardiovascular disease. The diet excludes all animal products and oils, and prioritizes foods such as fruits, vegetables, pasta and cruciferous vegetables. He was one of the doctors featured in the 2011 documentary Forks Over Knives, and his nutrition tips include the following, in short:

  1. Make yourself immune to heart attacks. Don’t eat meat, poultry, fish, or dairy products. Eat a wonderful variety of veggies, legumes, whole grains, and fruits.
  2. Even after disease is underway, its progress can be stopped, its insidious effects reversed. The key lies in nutrition.
  3. A benefit you might not have expected: For the rest of your life, you will never again have to count calories or worry about your weight.
  4. There is nothing radical about a plant-based diet. It’s about as mainstream as you can get. For billions of people, it is standard fare, and heart disease and many other chronic ailments are almost unknown.
  5. The benefits of a plant-based diet actually grow with time. The longer you follow it, the healthier you will be.

In the News… Changes to
‘CELEBRATING THE MOVEMENT!’

 Our intention is to bring you news and information that celebrates the things being accompished to move the WFPB conversation to a higher level, making a greater impact in lives and on the planet. We’re excited to change the name of this section to reflect how we really feel about the times and the changes occurring. We are Celebrating The Movement!
