When he arrived so I legitimately had an excuse to give socks as a Christmas present. Two months later and the verdict is in: the most soft, thick and comfortable socks. Worth a try.

Hippocrates comes to Vantra London!

The highlight of early December was a one-off event at Vantra restaurant, which hosted an event with Hippocrates founders Drs Anna Maria and Brian Clements, as part of their European tour. 

We were greeted with a glass of green vegetable juice upon arrival and the next 4 hrs were spent listening to & questioning our speakers about their views and beliefs on disease reversal. The venue was filled to the brim with health practitioners seekers alike and we enjoyed our hosts hospitality with views on the basis to our human health including fresh air, water, environment, lifestyle, fitness, our psychology and emotions. They shared testimonials from guests who travel across the globe to visit their sanctuary.
