About Ann Wigmore and Her Journey
to Wheatgrass Juicing for Natural Healing, and
the Living Foods Lifestyle®
"I see a world without sickness,
sorrow, or mental disturbance in which
we are living in perfect balance, abundance,
health and harmony."
-- Dr. Ann Wigmore
Ann Wigmore was born in Cropos,
Lithuania on March 4, 1909. In 1925,
at the age of 16, she moved to America to
join her parents, who were already
living in Massachusetts.
She married and later gave birth to a daughter,
but it was only after the end of her marriage in 1955
that her life vision began to take shape.
In poor health, she began using weeds and wheatgrass juicing
to heal herself. Over the course of the next 35 years,
she promoted natural healing via her schools in Boston,
The Hippocrates Health Institute, which opened in 1963,
and The Ann Wigmore Foundation, begun in Boston in 1985.
Her brilliant, long-lived career included lecturing, writing,
and giving wheatgrass demonstrations in over 35 countries.
Her untimely death in Boston on February 16, 1994,
was due to smoke inhalation from a fire at the Ann Wigmore Foundation.
Ann Wigmore's contribution as a humanitarian, educator, writer, and tireless
promoter of natural health lives on here at the Ann Wigmore Foundation
in San Fidel, New Mexico.

organic, raw, living foods. She is among other famous naturopaths and
alternative medicine advocates such as Herbert Shelton and Viktoras Kulvinskas.

anchored in weeds and wheatgrass juicing, Dr. Ann Wigmore healed herself and promoted
