Dr. Joyce Oliveto Recounts Memories of Don and Dr. Ann, Expresses Enthusiasm for CHI’s Current Programs




Dr. Joyce Oliveto, who was the director of Creative Health Institute in 1986 and 1987, says whenever she returns to the center it feels like home.

The internationally renown teacher and healer visited the center during the winter and returns as a guest teacher in May when current director Bobby Morgan is out of the country.

Dr. Joyce, who has wonderful stories from her time spent with Dr. Ann Wigmore, said she was really amazed at the level our programs have been taken to under the direction of Morgan.

“To see the level of expertise is amazing,” Dr. Joyce said. “The classes are not only designed around the original program that Dr. Ann put together. They are even better.”

In addition to being impressed with the quality of classes now available for guests who participate in the CHI Detox Programs and gourmet raw chef classes, Dr. Joyce also said she is impressed with the skill level of the interns who devote months of time to make the programs work.

“Everyone has brought this to the highest level that a raw food center can be,” she said. “The healing that I see taking place here — the education, the motivation and the inspiration, is absolutely amazing.

Dr. Joyce said the feeling of community at CHI today is very close knit. In fact, she said, it is so close knit that she felt as if she was one-in-spirit with everyone at CHI during her five-day stay. She said she felt like that when she was the director. But she never expected to experience that level of community within a five-day stay.

“I believe at the very deepest levels of my heart that people need to know about this place,” she said.

Dr. Joyce came to the center in October 1980 after detoxing at the Hippocrates Institute in Boston with Dr. Ann Wigmore.  Her health transformed quickly but when she returned to her home in the Brighton area, she needed community. So Dr. Ann put her in touch with CHI Founder Don Haughey, whose memorial service is scheduled for 1 p.m. Saturday at Creative Health Institute.

She said when she walked in the door of CHI to meet Don she was desperate for support with the raw living foods lifestyle. Back then there was no other place in Michigan to turn to for support. She could hear carpenters working in the building when she opened the door. Don had purchased it when it was a tavern and when Dr. Joyce met him he was transforming it into a raw-living-foods retreat and education center.

“There were carpenters working on completing the additions to the saloon but from what I understand Don was teaching classes anyway,” Dr. Joyce said. “Back then it was Hippocrates Midwest.”

She loved meeting Don.

“He was a quiet presence. He just had so much knowledge. He could talk for hours no matter what the subject was.”

When Dr. Joyce became the director in 1986 Don was still running his business American Woodcraft and he would visit the center every day but just once a week for meetings.

“I think he walked quietly on the earth. He was a very gentle man — very firm. He knew what needed to be done. Everybody just loved him. They had an energy exchange program through which people would come and volunteer to work in order to get through the program.”

Dr. Joyce said the CHI community was very passionate in the late 1980s when she was director. They painted the buildings themselves and did everything they could with any bit of money they had extra. A few times families with children participated in the energy exchange.

“There was always building and remodeling going on between classes,” she said. “We all felt like free spirits but it was very busy. I remember when I needed to have a break, I would take some classical music out to the room that is now the sitting room. I would just go get my hands in the dirt and I would plant for twelve hours.”

In those days they used to swim nude across the street in front of the mill. There were bushes and trees for privacy and Don wasn’t yet living in the Mill. They had the famous CHI Sunday Buffet dinners and festivals with Dr. Ann Wigmore and Viktoras Kulvinskas.

Creative Health Institute was extremely special to Dr. Ann who visited in the summers.

“It really was the only center in the country that was following her path. Nobody else was. California had changed already,” Dr. Joyce said. “She always felt special when she was here.

When Dr. Joyce first became director of CHI, the center was in a lul. There were not enough guests to keep it going. So she called Dr. Ann to see if she would help her with a marketing effort. The two of them went on tour making appearances on local radio and television stations in Ohio, Indiana and Illinois.

They stayed in hotels with separate rooms and Dr. Ann always ate alone by herself in her room. After finishing her own dinner, Dr. Ann prepared a meal for Dr. Joyce.

“She would have a table cloth on the floor with a plate and energy soup, dehydrated dates and bananas,” Dr. Joyce said. “We laid on her bed and watched old movies. She loved old movies.”

The times with Dr. Ann were just wonderful, she said.

“She always smelled like strawberries. She used strawberry essential oil and beet juice on her cheeks for a natural blush.”

If they were doing a cable TV show, they would bring in a tray of wheatgrass and a tray of buckwheat. Someone at one of the studios once walked up to the greens and started petting them. “Wow, it smells like strawberries,” the person said, not knowing it was the smell of Dr. Ann’s essential oils.

Dr. Ann winked and said, “Yes, it does, doesn’t it?”

“She had a light-heartedness about her. She was a really sweet soul,” Dr. Joyce said. “But a lot of people didn’t realize that she was funny.”

The fact that Creative Health Institute is keeping the simple raw-living-food traditions of the great healer alive is wonderful because so many other centers have broken from Ann Wigmore’s teachings, Dr. Joyce said.

“One woman knew and believed that we could make a consciousness shift in the world through the living food lifestyle but she took her education, her life experiences with her grandmother, her personal experiences with almost having her foot removed, her health challenges – and started this dream in Boston with Hippocrates Health Institute.”

Dr. Joyce is glad to see the degree to which Dr. Ann is respected and honored at Creative Health Institute and she hopes the Creative Health Institute Community will always keep the memory and traditions of Dr. Ann alive.

“Dr. Ann has had over 50 years of people healing with raw and living foods and the simplicity of this healing program and what it dos for our bodies and our minds and our souls,” Dr. Joyce said. “Her work worked and why change it? Why not pay tribute and recognize somebody who made such a contribution to the world.”

The medical community in the United States has been slow to recognize the benefits of Dr. Ann’s teaching but Dr. Joyce said when she visited other countries she would be met my heads of state and they put her program in hospitals.

“Creative Health Institute has taken Dr. Ann Wigmore’s work – her passion, her vision, her dream,” Dr. Joyce said. “I feel it has been brought to the highest level it could ever be brought to today in 2011. I have never seen it better and I have never seen it this good… There is no ego here.”

Loving Encounters & Stories About Don

Erin Henderson  writes…

One day when I just finished up working in the garden. Don & Sadie walked over to me. He asked me, “Do you love your food?” And I stared at him blankly & thought what a strange question to ask…since I never thought about it before. Then I… thought it & replied “Yes.” With a gentle smile (the kind the lights up in the eyes), he said sincerely to me, “Good. Love your food and in return, it will love you.” That moment forward, I have always made sure that I give gratitude for this healing, nourishment. Don is such a gentle, loving, selfless being, who will be dearly missed. May peace and healing reach all of those…family, friends and lucky individuals who mourn the loss of this man.

Message of Hope and Love From Dr. Flora Mason Van Orden

Creative Health Grieves the Loss of Its Founder
Date: Sat, 18 Dec 2010 08:14:01 GMT

Please get a message to Hiawatha, the family, staff, and Bobby for me. I hope this will help them in their process.
Once, I touched a loose, dangling, unseen electric wire and found myself seconds later, 15 feet from the wire, on my back and paralyzed, unable to move a muscle or take a breath. The EMT personnel who arrived about 6 minutes later pronounced me dead after trying 3 times to bring me back with defibrillator shocks. I was aware of everything that was happening but could not alert them that I was still ‘in there’ because I was unable to move my fingers or blink my eyes, much less talk.

I zoomed through a tunnel and went into a space of white, and two spirits came to meet me with open arms. My lasting impression was of the most incredible joy and bliss imaginable. It was so strong, I thought I would never want to come back to this life of pain.I was so ready to embrace that light eternally.

Twas not my time, though, and someone did what is called a diaphragm press on me and as their fist sunk into my belly, just above my navel, and went up, pushing into my heart, I was forced to take a deep breath, and began breathing. Reluctantly, I came back, and although my heart stopped 3 times again in the ambulance, and I nearly died again at the hospital when the attending refused to take the saline solution out of my veins, with the help of my three sons, I survived when they kidnapped me and took me to a place called ‘Point of the Mountain’ where I was placed in mineral hot water, to recover.my heart’s rhythm.

Don is at a place of peace. He was taken to that place of no pain before the fire got to him. People should know that he never felt any pain; he felt joy. When I’ve repeated this story to people at the the hospital, in hospice or at home, they die with smiles on their faces because they know they have nothing to fear anymore. They are going home to a place where they will feel no pain, just bliss.

That was not the only time this has happened to me, so I continue to be of service, secure in my knowledge of what awaits me when God is finished with me on this earth. Don is there in bliss now, with Dr. Ann. And those of us who remain get further practice in moving from attachment to detachment.

Peace and love be with you, Dr. Flora

Hopeful signs, by Donald O. Haughey

by Donald Haughey, founder of CHI

Many of man’s enterprises undertaken to do the good work of God are threatened by the lack of forthright action on the part of those it is supposed to serve. The will and purpose of man is more and more diluted by increased substance abuse. Indeed, drugs of choice and ever more toxic medical drugs, the polluting of the food supply by the addictions to salt, sugar and fats in concentrated forms, and the de-vitalization of formulated processing for profit are all bearing down on us.

The grass roots wisdom that is causing the swing back to raw organic purity is hopeful and making a difference. In wisdom and/or desperation – “the way of the truth and the life” – people are seeking out prevention and cures for the ills of man.

Now we do well to seek out what the wise among us are doing to learn and practice the ways of not only survival but the ways of perfecting our being. Advice and guidance is not only available but taught by those dedicated to showing forth the ways of wellness and the perfection of our Spiritual Being. Creative Health Institute stands at the leading edge.
