“Quantum Human Biology” - Dr. Brian Clement

Biology, in its purest original sense, maintained a balanced interconnectedness that formed the cycle of life on this planet. This science and its related health is understood only when we eliminate the fabricated theory that there is a beginning and an end. Our need to create the perception of solidity forced us to remove ourselves from the energy and balance of all other planetary biology, elements and structure. This is how we have estranged ourselves from the ionics of realization and well-being, the very keys to unlocking true health and happiness.

Dr. Anna Maria Clement

Dr. Anna Maria Clement

Dr. Anna Maria Clement grew up in a Swedish family that consumed a traditional diet of meat and carbohydrates. But at the age of 15, her entire family became vegetarian and Anna’s interest in the intersection of health and nutrition began.

Similar to Brian’s experience with his mentor Ann Wigmore, a Danish woman by the name of Alma Nissen changed Anna’s course. In 1974, Alma was so incapacitated by arthritis that she was practically bedridden. Her hands and fingers were stiff and in constant pain, and she could not bend, walk or even turn over by herself in bed. Unwilling to accept her lot as a bedridden invalid, she changed her diet and normal routine. She began drinking fresh vegetable juices and herbal teas and taking heat treatments and hydrobaths – all with the goal of cleansing her intestine. She began to feel better and, after just a few months, was completely cured. Wanting to share what she had learned, she transformed her seven-room apartment in Copenhagen into an arthritis clinic that attracted patients on stretchers, on crutches and in wheelchairs. After four to eight weeks on Nissen’s simple regime, these patients left the clinic on their own two feet. Word spread, and a wealthy Swedish benefactor offered the Brandal estate in Stockholm for her use as a rheumatic clinic.  Anna became Director of the Brandal Clinic in her twenties, while also working towards her nursing degree.

In 1980, Anna came to Boston to experience the Hippocrates program for herself. A year following, she asked Brian if she could come work at Hippocrates and the rest is history.

To Hippocrates, Anna brought a refreshing European approach to healing, and her maternal ways rounded out the edges of Brian’s straightforward approach. She speaks seven languages, and travels the world with Brian to lecture on the topics of natural health methods in family and pediatric care.
