Anna Maria and Brian Clement from Hippocrates Wellness. It’s so good to spend some more time with you wherever you are. Sitting, driving, relaxing, hopefully in the sun, holding hands on the love seat, whatever you’re doing. Because every week we like to bring you a little bit into our world where we’re seeing how all of us on the planet Earth can work together to make things better. Because as you know, things are a little messy out there today. And one of the areas that humans have really proven that we’re in apt is in the environment. Ever since the Industrial Revolution in the mid 18, hundreds been pouring deadly chemicals into the air, to the water, into our food. And it has accumulated to such a point now where our oceans are dying. You may not recognize that there’s dead zones in oceans. Most lakes from what they used to call acid rain are dead. So that you know that by 2048 it’s predicted that all of the large schools of fish in the ocean are going to be gone. And there are some people doing something about it rather than just moaning about it. And we have two of those people in the studio with us today and it’s her and Bobby.
Speaker 3 (01:53)
And many years ago they said, you know, here in Florida, one of the biggest problems we have in these communities. We have lakes everywhere. They just dig holes in the ground and the lake pops up. In Florida, they are filled with deadly chemicals. And God, on those golf courses, it’s the worst. How many of you realize that if you live in close proximity to a golf course you have double the chances of contracting some form of cancer? And it’s always because of pesticides, fungicides, herbicides. And they started a business called we Do Green Boats that literally gives a less expensive and a very effective remedy to go in with a boat and to harvest the algae that’s in there, that is only in there because they put pesticides, fungicides and herbicides basically on grasses and on your lawns, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. But now, since the last time we spent time together, you’re inventing or utilizing other technologies we want to know about. So welcome here.
Speaker 4 (03:04)
Thank you so much. We’re grateful for you having us here today and to continue helping us spread the word about having your waterways cleaned in an organic way. It’s very important. Putting chemicals on already lakes and waterways that have been introduced to herbicides is horrible. And it’s a toxic bloom that you don’t want to be around.
Speaker 3 (03:28)
Well, explain that so here we have a dead lake or a dying lake, and their remedy is put more chemicals in.
Speaker 4 (03:36)
It doesn’t make sense. And up until we really started, it was a cheaper method for them. They didn’t know how to get the invasive weeds, algae, other toxic well, the.
Speaker 3 (03:50)
Algae bloom other plants. Only the algae itself precipitates even larger species of plants.
Speaker 4 (03:58)
Right. So when you introduce chemicals on the lawns that they spray and then you introduce chemicals in the water, you do form a very bad toxic blue, and that’s extremely dangerous. And when we introduced the vessel into Florida and started in Canada and then introduced it into Florida, we started to realize that you get a better return on your investment from using mechanical harvesting. And you get immediate satisfaction. You get clean waters in an organic fashion, and you don’t have to bring any chemicals into your water. And immediately you’re looking at clear, wonderful water sandy bottoms, and it’s beautiful. And it’s the way it has to be. No more chemicals. It’s not necessary. That’s right. Yeah.
Speaker 2 (04:42)
Terrain. When people see I’m the red algae and they think, oh, how annoying this is. But they have no idea how did they end up there? Suddenly that’s on their beaches. And you get respiratory problem, you can’t breathe. Some people get asthma. Yeah.
Speaker 1 (05:00)
You absolutely can become hospitalized being around these, as you mentioned, toxic red algae blooms. The answer is exactly why. There’s a bunch of reasons why, but our approach is, forgetful focusing on that for us. Let’s focus on the solution now to get it out. And a chemical problem cannot require a chemical solution. That’s the definition of authenticity. It’s a quagmire.
Speaker 2 (05:27)
Speaker 1 (05:28)
We’re going in there with our equipment, and we’re providing an affordable and effective method that’s been proven now time and time again to resolve these waterway issues.
Speaker 2 (05:39)
But it doesn’t surprise me. We do the same thing with the environment we do in our modern health care system.
Speaker 1 (05:45)
Speaker 2 (05:46)
We give people pharmaceutical remedies that literally often make people worse. And so this is outrageous. As you said, Einstein said that the sign of insanity is repeating a mistake right away. That’s a mistake. So talk about the most dirty, gruesome job that you’ve ever done. Tell me how bad that waterway was.
Speaker 3 (06:13)
Well, considering Bobby’s More of the operator and I’m sitting behind the desk, I’m going to allow him to go into detail on that.
Speaker 1 (06:19)
She’s being modest by saying she sits behind a desk. She’s actually the captain of a very interesting, very dynamic ship that is turning out to be a really beautiful thing that we’re doing for this world. But we did one really interesting job that is noteworthy in my mind, and we were asked to perform a demonstration, if you will, on a very important waterway in our own backyard. And there’s an issue with this water. It’s becoming completely overrated with water hyacinth. Yeah. That being said, it is also home to a lot of native bullrush. So you want to be very careful and mindful not to disturb the native bullrush while yet still removing the water hyacinth. So right now, unfortunately, there’s numerous airboats on a daily basis blasting ungodly amounts of chemicals on this waterway. So we went in to show, hey, there’s another way to do this. They said, no, mechanical harvesting is too expensive. You can’t do it. And you can’t separate the water hyacinth without disturbing the bull rush.
Speaker 2 (07:30)
Why you need the bull rush? Is it’s the ecosystem?
Speaker 1 (07:33)
That’s right. I beg to differ. I said I can do it. As a matter of fact, we do. Can do it. So we did, and we went in guns blazing, took a couple of boats and equipment, and we’re able to effectively prove that with the front end loader with the tines on it. I can go up to bullrush that is choked off with water hyacinth and comb through it the way your fingers can comb through your hair, and remove the water hyacinth in a tremendous amount without even remotely disturbing the bulsh precision harvesting.
Speaker 2 (08:07)
Isn’t that beautiful?
Speaker 3 (08:08)
That is our latest claim to fame that we really are proud of.
Speaker 2 (08:12)
And when you take these hyacinths out, obviously they have a purpose, too. You could actually put them in a compost pile and they’ll turn into great soil.
Speaker 1 (08:20)
Oh, yeah, for sure. The possibilities with that are endless. It’s very rich in nutrient, very good material. And I know a lake 60 miles to the west of us. It’s full of it. And if we started with ten, we do boats on there within ten years from now. You wouldn’t have to put chemicals in there anymore.
Speaker 2 (08:40)
So the largest lake in Florida, lake Okeechobee yes, sir. Which is slowly dying.
Speaker 1 (08:47)
No, it’s not dying. It’s being murdered.
Speaker 2 (08:49)
It’s being murdered. That’s a good way to put it. It really is a good way to put it. And it’s surrounded by agriculture, chemical agriculture. You’re saying you only need ten boats on that lake and how long and you could clean it up?
Speaker 1 (09:00)
I’m saying ten boats would be a good start.
Speaker 2 (09:01)
Speaker 1 (09:03)
On a consistent basis, it would take more than just ten. We do it would take some small supplemental equipment to go with it. So every we do that’s being used should have two flat deck barges to vary the material back and forth.
Speaker 2 (09:18)
Well, listen, we have very influential people that may be listening to us now.
Speaker 1 (09:22)
Speaker 2 (09:22)
So what you’re saying is that if somebody with a brain who cared for the future, conscious enough, the future of our environment and the future of Florida and our children and grandchildren was wise enough to listen to you for less money than any other methodology, there’s no.
Speaker 3 (09:41)
Certainty that they will save money and achieve better quality water.
Speaker 2 (09:45)
So I send you over there. Let’s imagine we send you on the 1 January as an example.
Speaker 1 (09:50)
Speaker 2 (09:51)
You print ten boats in to start. How often do you have to is that an ongoing ten boats constantly? Or is it you do it for two months and then.
