The Death of Hilton Hotema

There are a lot of questions surrounding Hilton Hotema’s death and it’s something people ask about pretty often. They want to know how he died and whether he lived his life the way he claimed.

There have been some rumors supposedly circulated by his original publisher, Health Research in Mokelumne Hill, CA, that Hilton Hotema died from a motorcycle accident in 1970. This is simply not true and it was really quite comical the first time I read it. Perhaps his publishers were afraid he might lose some credibility if it was found out that he died of natural causes. I guess they wanted to make sure they could go on selling his books. This is really the only explanation I can think of in regard to the motorcycle story.

There were actually a lot of rumors that went around. My grandmother said that awhile after he passed away, some of his followers would call to ask about him and they were shocked to find out he’d died. She said that they suspected foul play, but that wasn’t the case. He was very careful with his health and he was very, very smart. His logic was correct, but unfortunately his body did inevitably wear out and he passed away peacefully in his sleep on August 9, 1970 at the age of 92.

He did indeed practice what he preached. He ate fruits and vegetables primarily, as well as beans. He also walked just about everywhere he went. Everyday he would walk to the post office in the town of Sebring, FL where he’d lived since the 1930’s. He took very good care of himself, making sure he gave his body the best possible fuel while staying active. He was a bit hard of hearing later in life, but otherwise he was in very good health.

Honestly, I’m not sure how he would feel about the truth being out there because he was such a private person. I started this website to celebrate his life and his written contributions, which I believe far out-weigh one theory that was ultimately incorrect.
