HEALING OUR WORLD MAGAZINE INTERVIEW of TOM WHITMIRE | Republican Candidate for Congress Michigan 5th District Genesee County, Tuscola County, Saginaw County, Bay County, Arenac County, Iosco County

“In 2014 as your country was collapsing in front of your face, what exactly did you do about it?” This is a question all of us are going to have to answer sometime in the future and I figured I better have a pretty good answer. My answer, “I ran for Congress”. In less then a month’s time I went from disillusioned and off the grid to fully engaged and in the public eye. If I was going to make an impact, if I was going to speak out about the truth, then I was going to do it from the top. There are not to many places where you can have an immediate impact on this country but I found the place. I decided to run for Congress in Michigan’s 5th Congressional District where I was born. A victory puts me in Washington D.C. with the ability to represent the best interests of Human Beings and not CORPORATIONS. If you had to answer that proposed question would you have a good answer?
A true leader does not just amass a following but works hard to enable others to become leaders. One of the true leaders I have had the pleasure of learning from is Dr. Brian Clement of the Hippocrates Health Institute. Dr. Clement has been a true inspiration to me in my life and he is an inspiration behind me wanting to run for political office. I have seen first hand the impact he has made in individuals lives. I have also seen the restrictions that the federal government has put on him and other true patriots like him in this country. I want to expose the federal organizations that are limiting the true capacity of brilliant individuals and organizations and I want to give them back their freedoms to thrive.
It is just as much the role of a congressman to investigate, as it is to legislate. I have done my investigation and what I have found is that we live in a country that is missing the mark. It is an absolute sin what the government is allowing to happen to our lives, liberties, property, freedoms and our real pursuits of happiness. In D.C. I plan to continue my investigations and I will hold congressional hearings where people will finally be held accountable for their actions.
I am running on a platform of Nutrition, Health, Education, and Agriculture. Genesee County in which I live is the second unhealthiest county in a state that ranks on the bottom of healthy states. If we are going to start anywhere then we need to address the health of the people in this district. In the past Michigan had a huge agricultural presence and was a top producer of celery, asparagus, apples, blueberries and all kinds of healthy foods. Now all we seem to be able to grow is GMO corn, soy and sugar beets. We will have to stop growing genetically manipulated crops on this planet if we are to guarantee food security for the future. We have lost our agricultural roots and this is showing up in our schools and institutions. We need to stop feeding our children highly processed and prepackaged foods. Kids are being sent to school with chemical pies and soda pop for breakfast and then fed prepackaged fish sticks with chocolate milk for lunch. The kids receive no nutritional nutrients in which their body can utilize for the function of learning. Instead of creating a society that realizes and address the simple fact of nutrition as the root of our problems, we have a system that goes as far as miss labeling these students with leaning disabilities, behavioral problems or diagnosing them with psychological disorders. This then puts them on a path towards being medicated with dangerous drugs that often lead to the child victum losing their passions in life. On the drugs they longer seem to want to pursue math, music, or family fun time. We need to look at the solutions for today’s problems. Most often these solutions like in this instance relate back the high amounts of sugar, chemicals and substances that people are allergenic to that are allowed to be in our food supply by the federal government. I propose that we create a federal agency that actually functions for the good of the people and in their best interests.
We can find $491 Billion Dollars for the defense budget but we can’t find any money to improve the school lunch program? The priorities of the people making legislation are not in the right place. We have a system that makes decisions based on special interests groups, lobbyists and the potential to further the career and power of the elected few.
George Orwell once said, “In a time of universal deceit , telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.” The truth is that the people are being lied to and I am standing up to the system to give the people an option of real representation in Washington D.C.
If I only passed two bills in my two years in office they would be #1 Legalization of Industrial Hemp in the 5th District of Michigan and #2 A complete ban of fluoride in the water system. Industrial hemp is a complete protein making it a perfect food. Almost anything produced with crude oil can be equally produced utilizing industrial hemp. This includes fuel and plastics. Henry Ford made cars out of hemp that actually ran on hemp. Industrial Hemp can be used to make almost all textile products that are currently made of cotton and it is six times more durable and becomes just as soft to the touch. Hemp fibers can easily be used to produce paper products and they make the use of lumber obsolete. Making paper out of wood creates a lot of pollution and this is not the case with Hemp. My district was once the center of automobile production in the world. That industry has gone away but what remains is a system of factories that already sit one of the best supply chain and logistics systems in the world. From the 5th district we can ship hemp based products throughout the country and around the world. My plan also takes into effect the ability to use hemp based technologies right here in the district to do things like paving the roads, building infrastructure and feeding the hungry. I can oppose many conventional technologies because of my knowledge of the fact that they will become obsolete as soon as we convert this country back to an Industrial Hemp based agricultural economy.
My answer to the question of how I went from a normal everyday citizen to someone with the capacity to run for congress is simple. I quit consuming the three main toxins that I was putting in my body everyday that were limiting my brain function. Those toxins that should be eliminated by everyone are fluoride, milk, and soda pop. If you only did one thing for your health that would be to drink only filtered water, coconut water or freshly juiced juices and to stop drinking store bought milk, soda pop or any other unnatural beverage. In fact after just four months of not consuming these toxins I lost twenty-seven pounds and I never even broke a sweat.
In November of 2010 I went to visit my brother Mike in Phoenix to help him to take a load off his life. He was teaching, coaching, getting a masters degree and doing all this with a really bad case of Crohn’s Disease. Four days after I arrived we went for a relaxing bike ride as the sun was setting over the desert. I got into some soft sand, lost control, fell and wound up fracturing my clavicle in multiple places. As much as I was put back from my physical injury the emotional pain of letting down my brother scared me as well. I could have let this get to me but instead it became the turning point in my life. I started doing research on how to help heal my shoulder, my brother’s disease and my grandmother’s breast cancer. What I uncovered was unbelievable and I often went to bed with a black heart from the disbelief that what I had perceived as truth was really all a lie based on greed.
I couldn’t stop learning and I didn’t want to. I studied things like: The Military Industrial Complex, The Environmental Movement, Economics, The Financial System, Security of the Nation, Foreign Policy, Spirituality and all other aspects of life and government. It was the conclusion of my research that the state of this country could only be changed by changing the way we look at health and nutrition. In thirty years on this planet not a single person told me that the foods I ate affected how I felt and functioned on a daily basis. I had to learn this for myself and it seems so simple but it is a made to me a giant secret. Because of this revelation I decided to become an expert in the field of nutrition, health and healing.
While reading the book ‘RAW Truth’ by Jordan Rubin I came across a section on Anne Wigmore and her bring the concept of juicing Wheatgrass here to the USA. It was over a year later that I wound up in West Palm beach where I was staying with a friend during the month of November. I took her to a health food store and as I got out of the car the van parked next to us read ‘Hippocrates.” It sparked reading about Anne Wigmore and the great things that the Hippocrates Health Institute was accomplishing. I went right to the internet and looked up HHI. It was only about 15 minutes away from where I was staying and the next day there was an open house. I went to the open house where I was greeted at the door by Kathryn. Like most people I thought the green drink was wheatgrass and I had never seen a sprout before in my life. She said that Brian would speak for a few minutes and then we would go for a walk around campus. Over forty-five minutes later Brian was still speaking and we never got that tour. That’s OK because I was absolutely blown away with the information he was presenting and the style he was presenting it in. A woman at my table that I was speaking with before we got started was then asked to say some words. She told a story about how she had been at HHI for only 28 days and how she learned to heal herself from her breast cancer. I was immediately hooked.
Over the course of the next year I read everything I could get my hands on that was written by Brian and Ann Marie. I was learning so much and I wanted to tell everyone including the other people in my office. They started incorporating new foods and supplements into their lives and they were seeing very good results. Co-workers then started sending other people into to see me who had health questions. I would listen to them and then I would point out what it was they could do to heal themselves. I kept pointing to the places in the books I was getting the info from as the source but people would say my word was good enough because of the results they could see. Well I decided I needed to come learn from the best so I started my application process to become a Hippocrates Health Educator and on February 14th of 2014 I walked in the front door.
The date I wound up at Hippocrates was an important date because it was exactly four years after I decided I was done living the Standard American Lifestyle.
After graduation I found myself at the Miami Farmers market where I was running my mouth about health, nutrition and what a capable government would do to benefit it’s people. Well the man at the booth next to where I was came over and said, “I like what you have to say. You should come to Antigua and tell their government officials what you were just talking about. They are looking for solutions and they will listen.” He introduced himself as Skye Williams, took out his phone and started showing me pictures of the country and the accommodations he had for me. I said, “Yes!” The rest of that story is chronicled in the “Healing our World” magazine Vol. 34 issue 1.
After my Antigua adventure I got a call from someone who saw some videos of the projects we accomplished and he informed me that someone from the Healthy Ministry in Iraq was interested in meeting with me. That was a very interesting three-hour meeting that took place in downtown Detroit. It resulted in an invitation to come to Iraq and to bring high quality supplements with me. In the end there was two much tension and uncertainty in the country for us to immediately accept the offer. In all since graduation I have also been offered a book deal, asked to create an online video course geared towards cancer, was offered a part on a reality show representing plant eaters, and I also developed a brand and created a website to promote nutrition called ‘LIVET LIFESTYLE’ which can be viewed at All of these projects are on hold until after my run for congress, which I expect will end in victory.
None of this however would have been possible if it was not for the knowledge and relationships I gained while enrolled in the Hippocrates Health Educator Program.
What I have learned about life is this: “Shut your face and move out of your head and into your heart and follow it.” Live in the moment and that means without anxiety of the future and without guilt of the past. If you are asked what time is it, you answer, “Now”. If asked where are you, you answer, “Here”. If asked where do you live, you reply “In the Moment”. There is only Love and Fear so why not just choose LOVE. Sometime all it takes is to, “Show Up!” When I changed the way I looked at things the things I look at changed and because of that I decided to be the change I want to see in the world. To the HHE Graduates, I Love You, I’m Sorry, Please Forgive Me, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. To all, “Drink Water”!
