Viktoras Contributions to the Living Food Movement
by Eliot Rosen

Viktoras Kulvinskas entered in the natural health movement in 1967 shortly after, he became part of Dr. Ann Wigmore's Boston-based Rising Sun Christianity. Within two years, jointly they started the Hippocrates Health Institute. Before Viktoras came to Rising Sun Christianity, cooked foods was still served and the center did not offer any coherent program organized around a set of guiding health principles. There was no living foods program to speak of. However, divine guidance played a role, and the old system had some degree of success.

The crux of Viktoras greatness at this juncture was that through his diamond sharp intellect and intuitive genius he saw the tremendous potential in living foods. He saw something others did not fully see, and asked the kind of questions others had never before asked. Viktoras' contribution as founding visionary has never sufficiently been recognized, in part because of Viktoras' unassuming humility.

Nevertheless, in profound and subtle ways he brought to bear ingenious solutions to perplexing theoretical and practical problems in the development of the living food protocol. His contributions include advances in food-growing systems, the creation of entirely new foods (baby greens - such as buckwheat and sunflower 7 day greens) and food preparation methods (especially, as related to fermentation of seed milks, predigestion of seeds by soaking, dehydration research), as well as his highly original seminal literary works. In the final analysis, he was the key player in transforming what was mere latent potential into the innovative directions that the living food movement has taken.

Below are but a few of his pioneering contributions.

  • His book Survival into the 21st Century was this generation's most impressive scientifically referenced assemblage of documented evidence for the value of uncooked nourishment in the human dietary. To this day Survival continues to be regarded as the " Living Foods Bible" by respected leaders in the health field. Released at a time when to be a vegetarian meant eating cooked rice and beans, Viktoras possessed the intellect and research skills to pull together a coherent empirical rebuttal to the unsubstantiated belief that cooking foods was a harmless practice.
    • In Survival, Viktoras powerfully championed what is nothing less than a new paradigm in nutrition: that a high enzyme, low protein, low starch, high liquid, pre-digested uncooked vegetarian diet consisting of fruits, vegetables, sprouted seeds and grains, grasses, weeds, algae and sea vegetables was the key to preserving youthfulness, reversing the aging process and extending the life-span. He is responsible for creating never-before formulated theoretical models for cancer, arthritis, menstruation and life extension that has withstood the scrutiny of critical scientific analysis.
    • It is not an exaggeration to say that a whole new generation of live food doctors and living food practitioners were inspired by Viktoras' cutting edge nutritional thinking. He is often quoted as an authority on health issues by other health authors such as Fit for Life's Harvey and Marilyn Diamond. Marylin in her 1997 book, Fitonics, quotes Viktoras in many locations, and thanks him in acknowledgments, for his contribution to her enzyme education. Dr. Smokey Santillo, Dr. Gabriel Cousens and a host of others too numerous to mention. express their gratefulness. He is quoted so often, many think he must be dead.
  • Viktoras was perhaps the first person to popularize the long out-of-print works of enzyme researcher Dr. Edward Howell. The book, Enzymes for Health and Longevity, was edited and published by Viktoras at great personal expense and risk. The publication of this first of many of Howell' works resurrected from obscurity fifty years of priceless research regarding the crucial role of enzymes for high level wellness and extended lifespan. Viktoras' premiere publication of Howell's book stimulated a whirlwind of interest which is still growing today. In fact, as a direct result of the resurgence of interest in enzymes, digestive enzyme supplement companies based on Howell's original formula have become a multi-million dollar industries. All of us owe a great debt to Viktoras for having the original foresight to recognize the importance of this great man's work.
  • Realizing that not everybody is ready or willing to eat a sufficient quantity of living foods to make a positive impact on health level, Viktoras has added another pioneering dimension to his life work by continuing the research, development and marketing of whole food nutritional supplements. It is his contention that whole food supplements such as algae, wheatgrass, vegetarian enzyme/herbal formulations can greatly minimize the effects of cooked foods, environmental toxins and inherited constitutional weaknesses.

To conclude, let it be said that Viktoras' contribution to the design and operationalization of the present Health Center is undoutably of inestimable value in increasing the speed at which investors get a return on their investment.
