My twenty plus years experience of working with thousands of clients has shown that wheatgrass’s nutrient rich contents boosts immunity, kills harmful bacteria in the digestive system, and rids the body of toxic wastes.
I have seen wheatgrass’s positive effects on treatment for cancer and chemotherapy side effects, cirrhosis, anemia, diabetes, infections internal and external, ulcerative colitis, and joint pain, among other dozens of health concerns. However, there are few research studies about wheatgrass, so it’s difficult to assess such health claims.
Wheatgrass is safe to drink as long as you understand that in soe instances it may cause nausea. This doesn’t usually happen, but it may. If you feel nauseated after drinking the wheatgrass, cutback on the amount you drink, do this until the nausea stops, then slowly increase the amount you’re drinking.
Most of us drink wheatgrass that is grown in soil and we drink it raw with a lemon chaser, but with the popularity of smoothies and the hectic schedules most people keep we are seeing more of our clients and friends simply adding wheatgrass to their morning or afternoon smoothies. It’s important to make sure the wheatgrass you are drinking is not contaminated with bacteria or mold. The best way to insure that is safe to drink is to grow your own, or buy it fresh from a trusted well thought of source.
If you’re pregnant or breast-feeding, talk to your health care provider before drinking wheatgrass.
I believe wheatgrass is amazing and can play a great part in ensuring your health, healing and happiness, but remember it isn’t a miracle cure and should be an adjunct to a healthy diet that includes plenty of raw fresh fruits and vegetables.
Blessing’s to you, your family and friends, Dr. Bobby
