40 Things You May Not Know About Wheatgrass?1. Wheatgrass juice is 70% chlorophyll.

2. Chlorophyll is the first product of light and contains more light energy than any other element.

3. Wheatgrass juice is a crude chlorophyll and can be taken orally and as a colon implant without toxic side effects.

4. Chlorophyll is the basis of all plant life.

5. Wheatgrass is high in oxygen like all green plants that contain chlorophyll. The brain and all body tissues function at an optimal level in a highly-oxygenated environment.

6. Chlorophyll is antibacterial and can be used inside and outside the body as a healer.

7. Dr. Bernard Jensen says that it only takes minutes to digest Wheatgrass juice and uses up very little body energy.

8. Science has proven that chlorophyll arrests growth and development of unfriendly bacteria.

9. Chlorophyll (wheatgrass) rebuilds the blood­stream. Studies of various animals have shown chlorophyll to be free of any toxic reaction. The red cell count was returned to normal with 4 to 5 days of the administration of chlorophyll, even in those animals which were known to be ex­tremely anaemic or low in red cell count.

10. Farmers in the Midwest of America who have sterile cows and bulls put them on Wheatgrass to restore fertility. (The high magnesium content in chloro­phyll builds enzymes that restore the sex hor­mones.)

11. Chlorophyll can be extracted from many plants, but Wheatgrass is superior because it has been found to have over 100 elements needed by man. If grown in organic soil, it ab­sorbs 92 of the known 102 minerals from the soil.

12. Wheatgrass has what is called the grass juice factor, which has been shown to keep herbivo­rous animals alive indefinitely.

13. Dr. Ann Wigmore has been helping people get well from chronic disorders for 30 years using wheatgrass.

14. Liquid chlorophyll gets into the tissues, refines them, and makes them over.

15. Wheatgrass juice is a superior detoxification agent compared to carrot juice and other fruits and vegetables. Dr. Earp Thomas, associate of Ann Wigmore, says that 15 pounds of Wheatgrass is the equivalent of 350 pounds of carrots, lettuce, celery and so on.

16. Liquid chlorophyll washes drug deposits from the body.

17. Chlorophyll neutralizes toxins in the body.

18. Chlorophyll helps purify the liver.

19. Chlorophyll improves blood sugar problems.

20. Wheatgrass juice cures acne and even removes scars after it has been ingested for seven to eight months. The diet must be improved at the same time.

21. In The American Journal of Surgery (1940), Benjamin Cruskin. M.D. recommended chlorophyll: to clear up foul-smelling odours, neutralize strep infections, heal wounds, hasten skin grafting, cure chronic sinusitis, over­come chronic inner-ear inflammation and infec­tions, reduce varicose veins and heal leg ulcers, eliminate impetigo and other scabby eruptions, heal rectal sores, successfully treat inflammation of the uterine cervix, get rid of parasitic vaginal infections, reduce typhoid fever, and cure advanced pyorrhoea in many cases.

22. Wheatgrass juice acts as a detergent in the body and is used as a body deodorant.

23. A small amount of Wheat grass juice in the human diet prevents tooth decay.

24. Wheatgrass juice held in the mouth for 5 minutes will eliminate toothaches and poisons from gums.

25. Gargle with Wheatgrass juice for a sore throat.

26. Pyorrhoea of the mouth: lay pulp of Wheatgrass soaked in juice on diseased area in mouth or chew wheatgrass. Spit out out pulp.

27. Drink Wheatgrass juice for skin problems such as eczema or psoriasis.

28. Wheatgrass juice keeps the hair from greying.

29. By taking Wheatgrass juice, one may feel a difference in strength, endurance, health, and spiritual­ity and experience a sense of well-being.

34. Wheatgrass implants (enemas) are great for healing and detoxifying the colon walls. The implants also heal and cleanse the internal organs. After an enema, wait 20 minutes, then implant 4-ounces of Wheat grass juice. Retain or 20 minutes.

35. Wheatgrass juice is great for constipation and keeping the bowels open. It is high in magnesium.

36. Dr. Birscher a research scientist, called chlorophyll "concentrated sun power." He said, “Chlorophyll increases the function of the heart, affects the vascular system, the intestines, the uterus and the lungs."

37. According to Dr. Birscher, nature uses chlorophyll (wheatgrass) as a body cleanser, re-builder and neutralizer of toxins.

38. Wheatgrass juice can dissolve the scars that are formed in the lungs from breathing acid gasses. The effect of carbon monoxide is minimized since chlorophyll increases haemoglobin production.

39. Wheatgrass juice reduces high blood pressure as it enhances the capillaries.

More Facts Above Wheatgrass Grass is the world's most ubiquitous form of vegetation. There are over 9,000 species of grass. From the outback "down under" to the one inch arctic tundra, wherever there is sun, water and soil, there is grass. As a seed, all grasses start from grains like wheat, barley, oat, rye, and rice. Four of the world's top five crops are grains/grasses. For centuries, farmers have noticed how livestock improved when they fed on the young grasses of early spring. Scientists started studying grasses in the 1930's in an effort to discover its nutritional mysteries and include it in animal feed. They found that animals could survive on grass alone but, in contrast, failed on other healthy vegetables like spinach and carrots. The agricultural chemist Dr. Charles F. Schnabel started a movement that made grasses available for both livestock and human consumption. In the early 1940's, you could buy "tins" of Schnabel's dry grass powder in pharmacies all across North America. Stories about the new health food with "more" vitamins than the alphabet has letters ran in Newsweek, Business Week, and Time magazines. Later in the 1970's, Dr. Ann Wigmore popularized the use of indoor grown fresh squeezed grass juice for the therapeutic treatment of cancer patients who had been pronounced "incurable" after conventional medical treatment. Wigmore had saved her own gangrenous legs from amputation with her grass treatments and eventually ran in the Boston marathon. Word about her "Hippocrates Health Institute" and the "miracles" resulting from her wheatgrass treatments spread. Today, wheatgrass juice is available as dry powder and fresh squeezed juice in juice bars and health food stores everywhere. Although wheatgrass has helped thousands recover from serious illness, it is neither a drug nor a magic potion. It is, instead, the cornerstone of a holistic health restoration program that includes detoxification, nourishment from raw living foods and a revamping of the lifestyle including the mental and emotional conditions that created the "disease." Unlike drug companies which promote their products with large advertising budgets, grass is not patentable and is unlikely to ever be approved for medical use. Instead it owes its popularity to an underground movement that is made up of thousands of individuals, hundreds of practitioners and a handful of healing resorts who all testify to its healing properties. Word has even spread to medical doctors who are discovering alternative health treatments. Dr. Leonard Smith, a cancer surgeon in Gainesville, Florida, allowed wheatgrass juice to be given to his patient Gary Garrett because he desperately needed a blood transfusion, but could not because of his Jehovah Witness religion. Smith said: "Gary's platelet count rose every day for 7 days from 61,000 to 141,000 and the only thing we did differently was administer wheatgrass. That's phenomenal and it's fully documented on the hospital record." Smith now juices wheatgrass himself. Dr. Allan L. Goldstein, Ph.D, of the George Washington University Medical Center (USA) tested barley grass against three types of prostate cancers. He reports: "Barley grass leaf extract dramatically inhibits the growth of human prostatic cancer cells grown in tissue culture. ...It may provide a new nutritional approach to the treatment of prostate cancer." And Dr. Julian Whitaker, M.D., the famous editor of the popular Health and Healing Newsletter, said: "Why take these young grasses? Because you'll be giving yourself a health elixir unlike anything you've ever experienced! The effect these highly nutritious green drinks are having on all my patients, especially my arthritis patients, is nothing short of amazing." Why Grass Works As a source of nourishment, grass is a complete food containing over 80 nutritional elements including all known vitamins and proteins. People with wheat allergies, by the way, have nothing to fear from this food. Although grass is grown from grain, it has completely transformed into a vegetable with none of the allergic proteins common to glutenous grains. Grass is non-toxic at any dose, but you may have a reaction to it because it is a potent detoxifying agent. Grass is a powerful liver purger and too much can release too many poisons, too fast. It also cleanses and heals the large intestine, another collection point of toxins in the body. But it is, perhaps most famous for its blood purification. Grass is one of the planet's richest sources of high quality chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is liquid sunshine made by green plants. Sunlight charges and excites electrons in the chloroblast cells which then store that energy as ATP (adenosine triphosphate). ATP converts carbon and water into carbohydrates and releases oxygen into the atmosphere. Ultimately, all food on the planet, whether animal or vegetable, directly or indirectly comes from chlorophyll. Scientists would love to duplicate photosynthesis, because it would provide an endless source of food and energy. But even more amazing is that this "blood of plants" is a chemical cousin to haem Haem is part of hemoglobin, the red iron rich oxygen carrying portion of human blood. Wheatgrass juice literally gives you a sunshine transfusion. When you drink it, this enzyme-rich and metabolically active fresh living food, transfers its high vibration to your system, raises your "kundalini" or "chi" and gives you a natural high. It is this energetic lift that enhances your ability to heal. But don't confuse the high from grass with marijuana. Wheatgrass is hope, not dope. Which Grass From Where? You can grow your own wheatgrass indoors and juice it; buy it from a professional growers, a health food or mail order store; or buy freshly squeezed juice from a juice bar or natural food store. In 1931, Charles F. Schnabel discovered that grass achieves its peak nutrition when grown to the jointing stage. This is the point when the plant stops being a vegetable and starts reproducing. This point which for the most part is achieved in 3-7 weeks depending on the growing conditions, enables the prodigious root system of this plant to develop and pull minerals up from the soil. Immediately after jointing, there is a dramatic decline in nutrient content. Almost all bottled grass powders are grown this way. Although the Wigmore style, 10-14 day old greenhouse-grown, fresh squeezed grass juice is the grass of choice used at the healing centers for treating illness, the bottled dehydrated juice powders reign as nutritionally superior. They have more protein than meat, fish or eggs, more beta carotene than carrots, more calcium than spinach and are rich sources of vitamins A, C, and K, chlorophyll, RNA, DNA, antioxidants, nitrosamines and a full complement of amino acids and trace minerals. How to Use Wheatgrass This is not orange juice. The intense taste is more akin to juicing garlic than oranges. First time wheatgrass drinkers will find that 1-2 ounces is a lot. Experienced users can drink up to 8 ounces spread out over the day. But therapeutic doses for treating serious illness can require 8-32 ounces per day. Rectal implants via enemas, rubber bulb syringes and colonics are necessary for these amounts. Some people take it only this way and never drink it at all. Powdered wheat, barley and Kamut grass juices (Kamut is a popular variety of wheat) are solely promoted as nutritional supplements, but they also have a therapeutic dosage that is many times more than the serving size recommended on the bottle. Grass also has numerous first aid uses for the skin on burns, cuts, bruises, acne, eczema, poison ivy, and accelerates the healing of all types of wounds. Use it with bandages, poultices or compresses. It has documented results in the treatment of gingivitis and is perfect for mouth for gum problems in general. Filtered grass juice drops in the eyes are soothing for eye strain and tension. Dr. Gary Hall, medical director of the Eye Surgery Institute in Phoenix, Arizona recommends wheatgrass juice for anyone who shows signs of retinal disturbances or has a history of macular degeneration. "I believe a leaf of grass is no less than the journey-work of the stars." Walt Whitman Steve Meyerowitz(Sproutman) is the author of several books on health, diet, and nutrition including *Wheatgrass Nature?s Finest Medicine, *Power Juices Super Drinks, *Sproutman?s Kitchen Garden Cookbook, *Sprouts the Miracle Food, *Juice Fasting and Detoxification, *Food Combining and Digestion, and *Sproutman's Turn-the-Dial Sprout Chart
HOW EASY IS IT TO GROW? With a little effort in tending your crop, you can grow trays of wheatgrass very easily. It is one of those habits that's easy, once you know how, and you've experimented a few times! Traditionally, wheatgrass, like any plant, is best grown in soil. Growing instructions are included with the kits, which provide the ingredients for a minimum of 4 trays. ARE WE REALLY SO UNHEALTHY? In real terms we are living longer than any other time in human history. We eat when ever we like and as much as we want. This is a great achievement for our society. But in order to do this we have over looked the main reasons we eat food. It is for it's nutrisnal values. If it tastes good then so much the better for it. Our ancestors lived off the land, if fruit was ripe then they picked and eat it. When it could be stored it was stored fresh and uncooked, so keeping a great many vitamins and minerals. When they got the chance of meat they were glad of it and often it was eaten uncooked. Or only cooked on the out side. When meat was stored it was dried or smoked, this all retained a greater number of vitamins. Our ancestors lived like this for thousands of years. From the day we walked upright and long before that time our bodies have been chancing to suit the environment around it. So over this time our bodies have adapted to digest the food we eat. Yet today two of the most salutary trends in modern nutrition are the malnutrition of affluent society and mass dehydration - both lead to poor health. We are increasingly dependent on refined foods, pre cooked and prepared We are subject to massive media exposure of the high sugar drinks and fast food outlets. Our reliance on high energy sugar drinks and stimulants, such as tea and coffee, combine to dehydrate our systems still further. The results can include a reduction in the efficiency of our immune systems, a lowering of reserves through the poor nutrient content of our diet and the way our food is now prepared by us and for us IT'S NOT ALL DOOM AND GLOOM, HOWEVER An increase in the public's awareness of these issues has led to an enormous increase in the consumption of organic foods and a suspicion of GMO foods, I'm sorry to say that having been growing fresh fruit and vegetables for a living all my life and my father and father before him. My viewer on organic food and GMO foods may fly in the face of what may peoples opinions are. I do how ever understand the ongoing call for adequate food labeling and increased use of water purification. Alongside the quantum leaps in our understanding of the importance of living foods and the factors that have led to the deterioration in the quality of our food. But I have to ask the questions of why we do many of these things. A big problem with the so called healthy food groups is the reason they are going down these roots. As a farmer and grower I feel I'm as well qualified as anyone to give my point of view on the health and wealth of this country we live in. We don't have to go back far in the history of our country to see how much it as changed. Despite all you may read and have been told we are far far better off than our grandparents. But this in its self as made new problems. Not just for us but for our country and in the end the world we live in. Has I said earlier our problems started thousands of years ago. From the first day a of our ancestor picked up a rock and used it as a tool. You could say that was the day we changed the world for ever! Here's the reason why. Up to that time we had changed to suit the environment around us. Not by our own choosing but by the environment around us. Mr. Charles Darwin realised this with his theory of evolution. An easy way come the welcome proliferation of the juice bar, the complementary health clinic, and the local wholefood shop. An organic, freshly prepared juice in a gym or juice bar may cost £3 or more, but an increasing number of people are looking for ways to boost their intake of fresh organic nutrients and of pure water AT HOME. What is it about wheatgrass, that leads it to feature on the menus of fashionable juice bars, to help increasing numbers of people in their fight against cancer, to boost the immune system, and to be an important element in most detox programs? Steve Meyerowitz, known as Sproutman in the US, describes wheatgrass as "a sunshine transfusion" Dr Ann Wigmore healed her gangrenous legs with it in the 1970's and later ran the Boston marathon; and our own Living Foods expert, Elaine Bruce, who was a student of the late Ann Wigmore, describes it as an essential ingredient of the Living Foods Program. SO . . . WHY DRINK WHEATGRASS JUICE? Wheatgrass earned its reputation from people with terminal illnesses, who took it at the eleventh hour after conventional medicine left them with no hope. In the 1970s, Dr Ann Wigmore opened the Hippocratic Health Institute, in Boston, nourishing terminally ill patients back to health with fresh squeezed wheatgrass. Dr Charles F Schnabel (1895 - 1974) chemist and agriculturist, knew from his work with his farm animals and his research in the laboratory, that wheatgrass boosts nutrition, builds good blood and strengthens immunity. More recently, there are many studies demonstrating the efficacy and nutrition of grass foods, using both clinical evidence and testimonials. In the US there are numerous healing centres, where wheatgrass plays a key role in the diet. There are courses run in the UK by proponents of wheatgrass and raw, living foods. Wheatgrass has long been used like a herbal medicine - for its therapeutic and nutritional properties. Although wheat is the most popular, barley, oats and rye are equally potent. So what's it good for? Blood purification Liver detoxification Colon cleansing As a food Wheatgrass is very nourishing and restorative with a complete range of nutrients. Therapeutically, the fresh juice can be drunk or applied rectally using a enema implant. For disease prevention, you can make powdered drinks, take it in tablet or capsule form, or drink the fresh juice as part of a long term health maintenance program. For those with an intolerance to gluten, do not be put off . . . The grain metamorphoses completely into a vegetable, with none of the allergic proteins common to the glutinous grains.". . . our food is our medicine and our medicine is our food" - Hypocrites, the father of medicine. It has long been established that the best medicine is a whole, natural food. All known nutrients were found in concentrated form in wheatgrass, including what are now known as phytochemicals. Also antioxidants, enzymes, 20 amino acids, vitamins including: folic acid, calcium, zinc, selenium, magnesium, phosphorous, manganese, potassium, and cellular RNA and DNA. Similar natural superfoods containing a broad spectrum of concentrated nutrients are bee pollen, spirulina, chloral and blue green algae. They all provide the raw materials from which the body manufactures what it needs and balances its own chemistry. Grasses, along with alfalfa and these algae, are the richest sources of chlorophyll on the planet. Green plant cells are the only cells capable of absorbing the energy of the sun. The famous research scientist E. Bircher called chlorophyll "concentrated sunpower - it increases the functions of the heart, improves the vascular system, the intestines, the uterus and the lungs. It raises the basic nitrogen exchange and is therefore a tonic which, considering its stimulating properties cannot be compared with any other". The amount of juice you drink is totally up to you. Steve Meyerowitz says "Grass is non-toxic in any dose, but you may react to the results of its detoxifying power. All grass is a powerful purgative for the liver, and too much can release too many poisons too quickly". EXPERIMENT! Start with small quantities. It can be mixed with other juices or taken neat. Notice the effects of a daily 1oz shot! Remember - it's concentrated sunpower! Rocket fuel! Greenpower! Living food! Whatever it becomes for you . . . have fun! If you have time let us know how you get on. You can use this wheat for , too! Recipe Method Soak wheatgrass seeds in water for 8 to 12 hours. Get a jam jar or pickling jar, put drained and rinsed wheat in it, cover lid with nylon net or part of an old stocking, secure with a rubber band. Twice a day, rinse (cover with cool water, swirl around, dump out). In 2 to 3 days, a small sprout will appear. Refrigerate at this point. Can eat raw, in salads, on sandwiches, or alone, or cook about 5 minutes, use in bread, or cook and eat plain or with rice.

HOW EASY IS IT TO GROW?With a small initial capital outlay, and a little on-going effort in tending your crop, you can grow trays of wheatgrass very easily. It is one of those habits that's easy, once you know how, and you've experimented a few times! There are 2 mediums in which to grow wheatgrass - using soil or hydroponically (using water). Traditionally, wheatgrass, like any plant, is best grown in soil. The nutrient levels are slightly reduced by growing in water, but this method is convenient for those people who cannot make compost, etc. in a garden, and those who just want to keep the growing really simple. You can try both methods, and choose which suits your own circumstances best. Growing instructions are included with the kits, which provide the ingredients for a minimum of 4 trays. ARE WE REALLY SO UNHEALTHY?Two of the most salutary trends in modern nutrition are the malnutrition of affluent society and mass dehydration - both lead to poor health. We are increasingly dependent on refined foods, low quality, mass produced meat, fruit and vegetables. We are subject to massive media exposure of the high sugar drinks and fast food outlets. There is an increasing need to add fertilisers to improve yields from impoverished soil, and to use of growth hormones and antibiotics in the production of meat. Other factors - such as the tight margins demanded by supermarket giants - all conspire to reduce the nutritional value of our foods. The poor quality of our tap water does little to encourage us to drink the recommended daily quota. Our reliance on high energy sugar drinks and stimulants, such as tea and coffee, combine to dehydrate our systems still further. The results can include a reduction in the efficiency of our immune systems, a lowering of reserves through the poor nutrient content of our diet and a propensity to infections . . .IT'S NOT ALL DOOM AND GLOOM, HOWEVER . . .An increase in the public's awareness of these issues has led to an enormous increase in the consumption of organic foods, a suspicion of GMO foods, the on-going call for adequate food labeling and increased use of water purification.

I've even washed them in the dishwasher and they seem to stand up to it very well. (We can get you the black trays for half the price, but they won't last half as long.)

    If you do use these trays to grow wheatgrass or other seeds you will end up with a problem called “logging”. This is when the roots are sat in water because the water is unable to drain from the bottom of the tray.

    More Facts Above Wheatgrass
    Grass is the world's most ubiquitous form of vegetation. There are over 9,000 species of grass. From the outback "down under" to the one inch arctic tundra, wherever there is sun, water and soil, there is grass. As a seed, all grasses start from grains like wheat, barley, oat, rye, and rice. Four of the world's top five crops are grains/grasses. For centuries, farmers have noticed how livestock improved when they fed on the young grasses of early spring. Scientists started studying grasses in the 1930's in an effort to discover its nutritional mysteries and include it in animal feed. They found that animals could survive on grass alone but, in contrast, failed on other healthy vegetables like spinach and carrots. The agricultural chemist Dr. Charles F. Schnabel started a movement that made grasses available for both livestock and human consumption. In the early 1940's, you could buy "tins" of Schnabel's dry grass powder in pharmacies all across North America. Stories about the new health food with "more" vitamins than the alphabet has letters ran in Newsweek, Business Week, and Time magazines. Later in the 1970's, Dr. Ann Wigmore popularized the use of indoor grown fresh squeezed grass juice for the therapeutic treatment of cancer patients who had been pronounced "incurable" after conventional medical treatment. Wigmore had saved her own gangrenous legs from amputation with her grass treatments and eventually ran in the Boston marathon. Word about her "Hippocrates Health Institute" and the "miracles" resulting from her wheatgrass treatments spread. Today, wheatgrass juice is available as dry powder and fresh squeezed juice in juice bars and health food stores everywhere.

    Although wheatgrass has helped thousands recover from serious illness, it is neither a drug nor a magic potion. It is, instead, the cornerstone of a wholistic health restoration program that includes detoxification, nourishment from raw living foods and a revamping of the lifestyle including the mental and emotional conditions that created the "dis-ease." Unlike drug companies which promote their products with large advertising budgets, grass is not patentable and is unlikely to ever be approved for medical use. Instead it owes its popularity to an underground movement that is made up of thousands of individuals, hundreds of practitioners and a handful of healing resorts who all testify to its healing properties.

    Word has even spread to medical doctors who are discovering alternative health treatments. Dr. Leonard Smith, a cancer surgeon in Gainesville, Florida, allowed wheatgrass juice to be given to his patient Gary Garrett because he desperately needed a blood transfusion, but could not because of his Jehovah Witness religion. Smith said: "Gary's platelet count rose every day for 7 days from 61,000 to 141,000 and the only thing we did differently was administer wheatgrass. That's phenomenal and it's fully documented on the hospital record." Smith now juices wheatgrass himself. Dr. Allan L. Goldstein, Ph.D, of the George Washington University Medical Center (USA) tested barley grass against three types of prostate cancers. He reports: "Barley grass leaf extract dramatically inhibits the growth of human prostatic cancer cells grown in tissue culture. ...It may provide a new nutritional approach to the treatment of prostate cancer." And Dr. Julian Whitaker, M.D., the famous editor of the popular Health and Healing Newsletter, said: "Why take these young grasses? Because you'll be giving yourself a health elixir unlike anything you've ever experienced! The effect these highly nutritious green drinks are having on all my patients, especially my arthritis patients, is nothing short of amazing."

    Why Grass Works

    As a source of nourishment, grass is a complete food containing over 80 nutritional elements including all known vitamins and proteins. People with wheat allergies, by the way, have nothing to fear from this food. Although grass is grown from grain, it has completely transformed into a vegetable with none of the allergic proteins common to glutenous grains. Grass is non-toxic at any dose, but you may have a reaction to it because it is a potent detoxifying agent. Grass is a powerful liver purger and too much can release too many poisons, too fast. It also cleanses and heals the large intestine, another collection point of toxins in the body. But it is, perhaps most famous for its blood purification. Grass is one of the planet's richest sources of high quality chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is liquid sunshine made by green plants. Sunlight charges and excites electrons in the chloroplast cells which then store that energy as ATP (adenosine triphosphate). ATP converts carbon and water into carbohydrates and releases oxygen into the atmosphere. Ultimately, all food on the planet, whether animal or vegetable, directly or indirectly comes from chlorophyll. Scientists would love to duplicate photosynthesis, because it would provide an endless source of food and energy. But even more amazing is that this "blood of plants" is a chemical cousin to hemin. Hemin is part of hemoglobin, the red iron rich oxygen carrying portion of human blood. Wheatgrass juice literally gives you a sunshine transfusion. When you drink it, this enzyme-rich and metabolically active fresh living food, transfers its high vibration to your system, raises your "kundalini" or "chi" and gives you a natural high. It is this energetic lift that enhances your ability to heal. But don't confuse the high from grass with marijuana. Wheatgrass is hope, not dope.

    Which Grass From Where?

    You can grow your own wheatgrass indoors and juice it; buy it from a professional growers, a health food or mail order store; or buy freshly squeezed juice from a juice bar or natural food store.

    In 1931, Charles F. Schnabel discovered that grass achieves its peak nutrition when grown to the jointing stage. This is the point when the plant stops being a vegetable and starts reproducing. This point which for the most part is achieved in 3-7 weeks depending on the growing conditions, enables the prodigious root system of this plant to develop and pull minerals up from the soil. Immediately after jointing, there is a dramatic decline in nutrient content. Almost all bottled grass powders are grown this way. Although the Wigmore style, 10-14 day old greenhouse-grown, fresh squeezed grass juice is the grass of choice used at the healing centers for treating illness, the bottled dehydrated juice powders reign as nutritionally superior. They have more protein than meat, fish or eggs, more beta carotene than carrots, more calcium than spinach and are rich sources of vitamins A, C, and K, chlorophyll, RNA, DNA, antioxidants, nitrosamines and a full complement of amino acids and trace minerals.

    How to Use Wheatgrass

    This is not orange juice. The intense taste is more akin to juicing garlic than oranges. First time wheatgrass drinkers will find that 1-2 ounces is a lot. Experienced users can drink up to 8 ounces spread out over the day. But therapeutic doses for treating serious illness can require 8-32 ounces per day. Rectal implants via enemas, rubber bulb syringes and colonics are necessary for these amounts. Some people take it only this way and never drink it at all. Powdered wheat, barley and Kamut grass juices (Kamut is a popular variety of wheat) are solely promoted as nutritional supplements, but they also have a therapeutic dosage that is many times more than the serving size recommended on the bottle. Grass also has numerous first aid uses for the skin on burns, cuts, bruises, acne, eczema, poison ivy, and accelerates the healing of all types of wounds. Use it with bandages, poultices or compresses. It has documented results in the treatment of gingivitis and is perfect for mouth for gum problems in general. Filtered grass juice drops in the eyes are soothing for eye strain and tension. Dr. Gary Hall, medical director of the Eye Surgery Institute in Phoenix, Arizona recommends wheatgrass juice for anyone who shows signs of retinal disturbances or has a history of macular degeneration.
