Thehippoway.com has been created by Rebecca Hempey. Rebecca has been focused on wellness her entire life and believes that life is meant to be lived passionately with energy, happiness and excitement! Here is her story in her words….
“I have always loved being healthy, and my passion for living a healthy life, has evolved gradually over my 42 years of life. As far as certifications go, I obtained my Hon. BSc. in Health Studies from the University of Waterloo in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada in 1996 and I am a fully certified Level 3 NCCP Coach. I have 12 years of National coaching experience, 16 years as an entrepreneur and 20 years as the co-president of my family with my husband and 3 gorgeous children.”
“The past 2.5 years, due to life’s interesting twists and turns, I have had the privilege of being surrounded by and mentored, coached and educated by some extraordinary Health Practitioners, Naturopaths, Nutritionists, Yoga Instructors, Authors, Philanthropists, Trainers, Coaches, Entrepreneurs, Healers, Acupuncturists, Therapists and Doctors. My most impactful teachers have been Deepack Chopra, M.D., Dr. Bernard Jensen, Dr. John Matsen, ND , Dr. Brian Clement, Lindsey Duncan and Dr. David Schreiber to name a few. The Hippo Way approach to wellness is an exciting NEW way to look at, learn about and guide us towards healthy living. It is (as all incredible health practitioners are) 100% focussed on the wellness & perspective of the INDIVIDUAL (that’s You!) not just from the perspective of the Practitioner. Now I am excited to share it with you!”
“Where did the HIPPO reference start? I was introduced to Hippocrates and his montra “Let Food Be Thy Medicine” years ago, and the human brain (the hippocampus) has always been fascinating to me. But it wasn’t until my daughter, Alexis (who is 9 years old) created a “ted talk” on what it means to DREAM, BELIEVE and ACHIEVE last year, that the picture of THeHIPPOWaY started to form. She explains that her dream is to have a HIPPOPOTAMUS in her pool and a pig on her front lawn and NOONE is going to tell her she can’t have one! It was at that moment that pictures of Hippopotamus’s started to appear all over my house, then, I started to make the connections between the HIPPOPOTAMUS (nature), the HIPPOCAMPUS (our mind) and HIPPOCRATES (our body)!

“I am excited to share this with you so that you can create your own HIPPOWaY to wellness by connecting your HIPPOdots & exploring the connections in between. If you have an idea, or a question, please share! This is a collective world we live in and I am looking forward to seeing where these ideas and this site takes us! My hope is that this site connects you to an AH HA moment or guides you to a practitioner, product, service or idea that resonates with you. Whatever you find here, I believe that it will help you on your path to wellness, happiness and joy for the rest of your GORGEOUS LIFE!”
“The site will be expanding and evolving over it’s lifetime, just as Nature does. We will be adding features all the time so make sure you come back and check us out as much as you can and follow us on Facebook and Twitter!”
Have Fun! and I would love to hear from you! Rebecca
