Wheatgrass and the juice have
superior healing qualities that can be extracted and incorporated into your
diet and life
Increases red blood-cell
count and lowers blood pressure. It cleanses the blood, organs and
gastrointestinal tract of debris. Wheatgrass also stimulates metabolism and the
body’s enzyme systems by enriching the blood. It also aids in reducing blood
pressure by dilating the blood pathways throughout the body.
Stimulates the thyroid
gland, improving obesity, indigestion, and a host of other complaints.
Restores alkalinity to the
blood. The juice’s abundance of alkaline minerals helps reduce over-acidity in
the blood. It can be used to relieve many internal pains, and has been used
successfully to treat peptic ulcers, ulcerative colitis, constipation,
diarrhea, and other complaints of the gastrointestinal tract.
Is a powerful detoxifier,
and liver and blood protector. The enzymes and amino acids found in wheatgrass
can protect us from carcinogens like no other food or medicine. It strengthens
our cells, detoxifies the liver and bloodstream, and chemically neutralizes
Fights tumors and
neutralizes toxins. Recent studies show that wheatgrass juice has a powerful
ability to fight tumors without the usual toxicity of drugs that also inhibit
cell-destroying agents. The many active compounds found in grass juice cleanse
the blood and neutralize and digest toxins in our cells.
enzymes. Whether you have a cut finger you want to heal or you desire to lose
five pounds…enzymes must do the actual work. The life and abilities of the enzymes
found naturally in our bodies can be extended if we help them from the outside
by adding exogenous enzymes, like the ones found in wheatgrass juice. Don’t
cook it. We can only get the benefits of the many enzymes found in grass by
eating it uncooked. Cooking destroys 100 percent of the enzymes in food.
Has remarkable similarity
to our own blood. The second important nutritional aspect of chlorophyll is its
remarkable similarity to hemoglobin, the compound that carries oxygen in the
blood. Dr. Yoshihide Hagiwara, president of the Hagiwara Institute of Health in
Japan, is a leading advocate for the use of grass as food and medicine. He
reasons that since chlorophyll is soluble in fat particles, and fat particles
are absorbed directly into the blood via the lymphatic system, that chlorophyll
can also be absorbed in this way. In other words, when the “blood” of plants is
absorbed in humans it is transformed into human blood, which transports
nutrients to every cell of the body.
When used as a rectal implant,
reverses damage from inside the lower bowel. An implant is a small amount of
juice held in the lower bowel for about 20 minutes. In the case of illness,
wheatgrass implants stimulate a rapid cleansing of the lower bowel and draw out
accumulations of debris.
Externally applied to the
skin can help eliminate itching almost immediately.
Will soothe sunburned skin
and act as a disinfectant. Rubbed into the scalp before a shampoo, it will help
mend damaged hair and alleviate itchy, scaly, scalp conditions.
Is soothing and healing for
cuts, burns, scrapes, rashes, poison ivy, athlete’s foot, insect bites, boils,
sores, open ulcers, tumors, and so on. Use as a poultice and replace every two
to four hours.
Works as a sleep aide.
Merely place a tray of living wheatgrass near the head of your bed. It will
enhance the oxygen in the air and generate healthful negative ions to help you
sleep more soundly.
Enhances your bath. Add
some to your bath water and settle in for a nice, long soak.
Sweetens the breath and
firms up and tightens gums. Just gargle with the juice.
substances like cadmium, nicotine, strontium, mercury, and polyvinyl chloride.
Offers the benefits of a
liquid oxygen transfusion since the juice contains liquid oxygen. Oxygen is
vital to many body processes: it stimulates digestion (the oxidation of food),
promotes clearer thinking (the brain utilizes 25% of the body’s oxygen supply),
and protects the blood against anaerobic bacteria. Cancer cells cannot exist in
the presence of oxygen.
Turns gray hair to its
natural color again and greatly increases energy levels when consumed daily.
Is a beauty treatment that
slows down the aging process when the juice is consumed. Wheatgrass will
cleanse your blood and help rejuvenate aging cells, slowing the aging process
way down, making you feel more alive right away. It will help tighten loose and
Lessens the effects of
radiation. One enzyme found in wheatgrass, SOD, lessens the effects of
radiation and acts as an anti-inflammatory compound that may prevent cellular
damage following heart attacks or exposure to irritants.
Restores fertility and
Can double your red blood
cell count just by soaking in it. Renowned nutritionist Dr. Bernard Jensen
found that no other blood builders are superior to green juices and wheatgrass.
In his book Healing Power Of Chlorophyll he mentions several cases where he was able to double the red blood cell count
in a matter of days merely by having patients soak in a chlorophyll-water bath.
Blood building results occur even more rapidly when patients drink green juices
and wheatgrass regularly.
