What is the number 1 cancer-fighting food?

Never give up,,, There is always hope!

The number 1 cancer-fighting food is not a specific food, but rather a group of plant-based foods that contain phytochemicals. These foods include berries, broccoli, tomatoes, walnuts, grapes, and other vegetables, fruits, and nuts [1]. Research has shown that a diet filled with a variety of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, and other plant foods helps lower the risk of many cancers [2]. Phytochemicals, which are found in plant-based foods, have been shown to have anti-cancer effects in laboratory studies [3]. Therefore, consuming a diet rich in plant-based foods that contain phytochemicals may help reduce the risk of cancer.

What Starves Cancer Cells?

A low-protein diet blocked the mTOR pathway in cancer cells,

According to recent research, a low-protein diet may block the nutrient signaling pathway that fires up a master regulator of cancer growth, potentially starving cancer cells [1]. The study found that a low-protein diet blocked the mTOR pathway in cancer cells, which is a key pathway that regulates cell growth and metabolism [1]. This finding suggests that a low-protein diet may be a promising approach to cancer treatment, though more research is needed to determine the specific effects of this diet on human cancer incidence and prognosis.

Can Fasting Help Reduce or Eliminate Cancer Cells?

“There’s always hope beyond what you see.” “It’s possible not just to survive, but to thrive and to live a healthy, wonderful life again.” “Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to it.” “Cancer is like a teeter-totter.

Several studies have been conducted on how fasting may affect cancer treatment. The results suggest that when people fast, the body creates conditions that limit the spread and growth of cancer cells [1]. In some cases, fasting may even be used as a treatment for cancer. This is because it can reduce the number and size of tumors in people who have already been diagnosed [2].

Preliminary studies suggest that prolonged fasting in some patients with cancer may help decrease chemotherapy-related toxicity and tumor growth.

Chemotherapy can cause serious side effects, but short-term fasting has been shown to offer protection and enhance the efficacy of chemotherapy in numerous distinct malignancies—including breast cancer, melanoma, and colorectal cancer.

Fasting may reduce blood glucose levels, making it harder for cancers to grow because they consume much more glucose than normal cells. Fasting can reduce oxidative stress, which is important because many cancers are caused by oxidative damage.

Fasting can increase the number of cancer-fighting immune cells (natural killer cells), which may be important because cancers often evade detection by the immune system. Fasting can reduce oxidative stress, which is important because many cancers are caused by oxidative damage.

Fasting can increase the number of cancer-fighting immune cells (natural killer cells), which may be important because cancers often evade detection by the immune system.

Disclaimer: However, more research is needed to determine the specific effects of fasting on human cancer incidence and prognosis. If you are diagnosed with cancer make sure to consult with your health care providers before fasting.

Potential Health Benefits of Turmeric

Turmeric may be the most effective nutritional supplement in existence.

Turmeric has a number of potential health benefits. According to the Cleveland Clinic, it has antioxidant properties, and one study shows that it may protect your body from free radicals by neutralizing them. Another study suggests that turmeric’s antioxidant effects may also stimulate the activity of other antioxidants, and it may lower the risk of heart disease.[1]

Johns Hopkins Medicine states that research studies have shown some possible benefits of turmeric for inflammation, degenerative eye conditions, metabolic syndrome, arthritis, hyperlipidemia (cholesterol in the blood), anxiety, muscle soreness after exercise, and kidney health.[2] However, turmeric supplements may not be a good idea, according to the same source.

The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) notes that turmeric is promoted as a dietary supplement for a variety of conditions, including arthritis, digestive disorders, respiratory infections, allergies, liver disease, depression, and many others. It is a common spice and a major ingredient in curry powder.[3]

Healthline reports that turmeric, and its active ingredient, curcumin, may have anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antioxidant, and other benefits. It may be the most effective nutritional supplement in existence.[4]

Turmeric and its primary compound, curcumin, offer several health benefits, according to Verywell Health. Thanks to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, turmeric may help reduce joint pain, boost cognitive function and mood, and support heart health. Curcumin may also help protect against cancer and type 2 diabetes.[5]

Dr. Ann Wigmores Best And Easiest To Make Kraut

Another zero-fat, healthy bacteria, non-fruit recipe to give you amazing health!

At the Creative Health Institute, where I was once director, meals always included regular and VegeKrauts.  We also used VegeKraut as on salads and sandwiches, in vegetable V8-type smoothies, and even as an ingredient in recipes for raw soups and stews.

I saw many people with serious health issues such as cancer or diabetes experience dramatic improvements when they began eating more raw pre and probiotic-fermented plant-based foods, especially Dr. Anns VegKraut.

Dr. Ann Wigmores VegeKraut

  •  1 green cabbage
  • 1 purple cabbage
  • 6 carrots
  • 1 sweet red onion
  • 1 tablespoon  lemon juice or rejuvelac
  • Optional Seasonings to taste (garlic, cayenne, herbs, caraway seeds) – optional
  1. Finely chop cabbage, saving outside leaves. Chop carrots and onion.
  2. Place vegetables into a large bowl or crock pot.
  3. Mix in optional seasonings.
  4. Cover the top outside with cabbage leaves. Place a large plate and weight on top (we use a large stone). Press down to remove air from Kraut.
  5. Leave at room temperature for 3 days or until it is sour enough for your taste.
  6. Place the Kraut in a glass jar with a lid and refrigerate. It will keep up for several weeks.
  7. Eat a ½ cup serving a day with meals and enjoy the wonderful flavor and nutritional benefits of this wonderful food!

Some of the benefits associated with eating raw VegeKraut, sauerkraut, and fermented foods are:

Powerful  immune system boosters
VegeKraut and Sauerkraut are packed with enzymes, vitamins, phytonutrients, and minerals. For centuries it has been used as an immune booster by people living in colder climates.

VegeKraut & sauerkraut contains lactic acid bacteria and photochemical—beneficial byproducts of fermentation that help increase the body’s immune system. This can lead to decreased occurrences of several ailments, such as colds or other respiratory diseases. A healthy immune system prevents the development of common colds, skin problems that require treatment by a dermatologist, and weight gain caused by overeating.

VegeKraut & Sauerkraut are a cancer fighters
All Krauts’ are superfoods, with the ability to inhibit and even destroy cancer cells.  Studies published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry concluded that kraut is a cancer inhibitor. The study discovered that the fermentation of cabbage produced a substance called isothiocyanate, which prevents cancer growth, particularly in the breast, colon, lung, and liver. 

The University of New Mexico published a study linking sauerkraut consumption by adolescent females to a reduced risk for breast cancer earlier studies indicate sauerkraut may reduce the risk for other forms of cancer including lung, colon, prostate, and liver.

“We are finding that fermented cabbage is healthier than raw or cooked cabbage, especially for fighting cancer”, says Eeva-Liisa Ryhanen, Ph.D., research manager of MTT Agrifood Research Finland, located in Jokioinen, Finland.

A recent study by the American Center for Cancer Research has found that sauerkraut has a profound effect on preventing and healing breast cancer. Based on reports that breast cancer rates amongst polish women in the United States were much higher than those in Poland researchers set out to find out why. Their answer; the women who still lived in Poland ate significantly larger amounts of sauerkraut especially important while they were in adolescence. The research found that the women who immigrated Americanized their diets and stopped eating as much of the superfood that is sauerkraut thus increasing their rates of breast cancer.

Digestive Aid
Eating sauerkraut is a great way to protect the balance of bacteria in your gastrointestinal tract. Sauerkraut is one of the few foods that contain the bacterium Lactobacilli Plantarum. L. Plantarum is a very dominant strain of healthful bacteria that helps your digestive system in the following ways:

  • Boost your body’s immunity by increasing the production of antibodies that fight off infectious diseases.
  • Enhance your body’s digestion by producing enzymes that help break down proteins and fats into smaller components.
  • A good source of vitamin K and manganese which are both important for bone health and tissue repair.
  • Help keep pathogenic organisms like E.coli, salmonella, and unhealthy overgrowth of candida (yeast) in check while creating antioxidants that scavenge free radicals which are cancer precursors
  • Converts lactose, which is difficult for many people to digest, into something more easily absorbed by the body.
  • By neutralizing the anti-nutrients found in many foods, including phytic acid (found in all grains) and trypsin inhibitors (in soy), new nutrients are created—including omega-3 fatty acids, digestive aids, and GTF chromium.

Wishing you the best day ever, Love and blessings.

Major Nutritional Information:
  • Coconut meat contains large amounts of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), which are easier for the human body to digest than most other types of fat. These MCFAs have been shown to improve endurance in athletes who eat them regularly.
  • The MCFAs in coconut meat also have antimicrobial properties. And research suggests that eating more fat may enhance weight loss by helping you feel fuller longer and boosting metabolism—so it’s possible Coconut Oil could help you lose weight!
  • Medjool dates are high in calories but full of nutrients and antioxidants that may boost digestion, lower cholesterol levels, and help prevent heart disease. They also contain fiber—up to 9 grams per date! Medjool dates are also high in fiber, which helps lower cholesterol levels, reduce constipation, and prevent colon cancer. They contain many vitamins and minerals as well—for example, they are a good source of folate (a B vitamin) as well as calcium, iron, potassium, and magnesium.
  • Fresh living alfalfa sprouts are an excellent source of vitamin C, providing nearly 15% of your daily requirement in a single serving. The Vitamin C content stimulates the production of white blood cells and can protect against infections and inflammation. Alfalfa sprouts are also an excellent source of vitamin K, providing nearly 37% of your daily requirement in a single serving. Vitamin K is important for blood clotting, and it also helps to maintain bone health.
A Note To Myself:

Father, thank you for letting me be of service to others. Also, thank you for forgiving me my transgressions. I have not always been the best of children or the most obedient of servants. I have strayed from the path, You ordained for me and wandered into a wilderness of sin and darkness. Yet deep in my soul, I know your loving heart makes a way for me. I can speak for no other man but for me; I trust in Christ and believe I am reborn and presented blameless to You, and that is why I say your name throughout the day in my spirit, for I am forever grateful. Thank You, thank you, thank you.

Thou art ever merciful Father God. If I could murmur Thy name repeatedly in my last moments in this mortal coil, how canst Thou refuse me entrance into eternity and to be with you in Thy heavenly abode?

  • 1 Tbs vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients.
  2. Blend batches of the ingredients in a high-speed blender or food processor until well combined. The mixture is very thick, so you will need to add water gradually at first (about 1/4 cup).
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the large mixing bowl. These should be mixed until they form a doughy/sticky consistency, with enough water added to create this effect.
  4. Gently massage the mixture with your hands until it forms a large ball.
  5. If the mixture becomes too wet, you can add more cocoa powder or hemp protein. If it gets too dry, try adding more coconut oil, dates or water. The desired texture is thick and chewy—sticky enough to hold together in a bar shape but not so sticky that it sticks to your teeth!
  6. In an 8 × 8 or 9 × 9 inch parchment-lined pan, spread the protein bar mixture evenly. Press down firmly on top with your hands and fingertips until it forms an even layer.
  7. Refrigerate the mixture for at least 2 hours.
  8. Cut into small pieces or 12 whole bars.
  9. Keep some for later in the freezer by wrapping individually in clear wrap or keep in the fridge for later use that week.
  10. Enjoy!

I really enjoy this recipe. Good luck with making your bars and may God bless you all, Bobby

Lower Dementia Incidence Linked With Vitamin D Supplements

A close up of bottles of vitamin D supplements on a pharmacy shelf.

Vitamin D supplements were linked with lower dementia incidence and longer dementia-free survival, prospective data showed.

In a sample of 12,000 older adults, exposure to vitamin D supplementation was associated with a 40% lower dementia incidence rate compared with no exposure (adjusted HR 0.60, 95% CI 0.55-0.65), reported Zahinoor Ismail, MD, of the University of Calgary in Canada and the University of Exeter in England, and co-authors.

Results were consistent across three vitamin D formulations, the researchers wrote in Alzheimer’s & Dementia: Diagnosis, Assessment & Disease Monitoringopens in a new tab or window. Effects were greater in females, in apolipoprotein E ε4 (APOE4) non-carriers, and in people with normal cognition versus those with mild cognitive impairment.

The study may offer insight about who might benefit from vitamin D supplementation, Ismail suggested. “We know that vitamin D has some effects in the brain that could have implications for reducing dementia, however, so far, research has yielded conflicting results,” he said in a statement.

But the findings don’t mean vitamin D supplements should be used to prevent dementia, observed Claire Sexton, DPhil, senior director of scientific programs and outreach at the Alzheimer’s Association in Chicago, who wasn’t involved with the study. “It is not recommended to start vitamin D supplementation to reduce dementia risk,” she told MedPage Today.

“It is important to note that this study is an observational study, not an intervention, so it cannot establish causation,” Sexton pointed out.

“Also, a significant limitation to the study is that neither vitamin D levels at baseline and follow-up, nor dose and duration of supplementation, were available or analyzed,” she added. “As a result, further research is needed in this area.”

Ismail and co-authors studied 12,388 participants in the National Institute on Aging National Alzheimer’s Coordinating Center opens in a new tab or window (NACC) database who had normal cognition or mild cognitive impairment at baseline. Participants came from Alzheimer’s Disease Research Centers from 2005 to 2021.

Exposure to vitamin D supplementation was based on NACC medication forms that assessed three formulations: calcium-vitamin D, cholecalciferol, and ergocalciferol. Participants with baseline exposure to any vitamin D supplement were considered the vitamin D-exposed group, while those without any exposure at all study visits were considered non-exposed. People with no baseline exposure who subsequently were exposed to vitamin D were excluded.

The final sample included 4,637 people in the exposed group and 7,751 people in the non-exposed group.

Mean baseline age was 71.2 years, and there was no significant difference in APOE4 status between groups. However, there were more women (70.5%) in the exposed group than in the non-exposed group (46.9%), and the exposed group had higher education levels. Both mild cognitive impairment and depression were more frequent in the non-exposed group (P<0.001 for all). Results were adjusted for age, sex, education, race, cognitive diagnosis, depression, and APOE4 status.

Over 10 years, 2,696 participants progressed to dementia. Among them, 74.8% (2,017 people) had no exposure to vitamin D supplements.

Five-year dementia-free survival was 83.6% (95% CI 82.3-84.9) for those exposed to vitamin D and 68.4% (95% CI 67.1-69.7) for the non-exposed group. Each vitamin D formulation on its own was linked to a lower dementia incidence rate compared with no exposure.

The study had several limitations, Ismail and co-authors acknowledged. NACC medication sheets did not record information about exposure history, and there was no accounting for differences in exposure duration. Because dosing and baseline vitamin D levels were not available, it’s unknown whether incident dementia rates differed based on doses or vitamin D deficiency, the researchers added. Confounding factors also may have influenced results.

This drink does not only taste delicious it’s loaded with nutrients

Pineapples are a good source of vitamin C, fiber, and protein. They also contain digestive enzymes that break down complex carbohydrates into simple sugars during digestion. One cup of pineapple contains 2 grams of protein, 1 gram of fiber, 5% daily value of vitamin A, 87% daily value of vitamin C, and 20% daily value of copper.

One mango has 1 gram of protein, 25% daily value of vitamin A, 76% daily value of vitamin C, and 257 mg of potassium. It also contains 0.2 mg B-6 and 0.5 mg iron. Mangoes are also a great source of fiber and contain no fat or cholesterol.

Coconut water has vitamins minerals ad amino acids that make it a great post-workout drink. In addition, coconut water contains potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc. It also has glutamine that helps with muscle recovery after exercise. One cup of coconut water contains 2 grams of protein, less than 1 gram of fat, and no carbohydrates.

Hemp seeds—which have a taste similar to pine nuts—are also high in antioxidant vitamins. HemIn addition, p seeds contain 5 grams of protein per ounce, as well as magnesium and iron. They’re also high in fiber and omega-3 fatty acids; one ounce has 5 grams of fiber and 12 grams of fat. 

The potassium found in bananas can help lower blood pressure and protect against kidney stones, while bananas are also high in fiber. Bananas contain 3 grams of protein per cup, as well as iron and vitamin C. They’re also a good source of magnesium, phosphorus, sodium, copper, manganese, and calcium.

Oranges contain a lot of vitamin C, which can help boost the immune system and reduce inflammation. Oranges are also high in fiber, so they’re a good choice if you want to lose weight or maintain your current weight. Oranges contain 3 grams of protein per cup, as well as copper, potassium, and phosphorus.

Recent Wheatgrass Studies

Wheatgrass natures emerald miracle elixir

Dr. Ann Wigmore brought Wheatgrass to the attention of many people, including me. I am very grateful for her work in spreading awareness about this amazing superfood—and I have continued on my own mission.

Studies have continued to support the early findings of Dr. Wigmore, who found that drinking Wheatgrass is an excellent way for people to increase and sustain their energy levels naturally as well as fight off sickness and disease.

Abstract

A wide range of health benefits has been attributed to Wheatgrass, the young grass of the common wheat plant Triticum aestivum. Its components include chlorophyll, flavonoids, and vitamins C and E. Forms of Wheatgrass include fresh juice, frozen juice, tablets, and powders, with compositions varying according to their production processes, as well as to the growing conditions of the Wheatgrass. Laboratory in vitro studies, primarily using fermented wheat germ extract, have demonstrated anti-cancer potential and have identified apoptosis as a possible mechanism. In animal experiments, Wheatgrass demonstrated benefits in cancer prevention and as an adjunct to cancer treatment, as well as benefits to immunological activity and oxidative stress.

Clinical trials show that Wheatgrass may induce synergistic benefits to chemotherapy and may attenuate chemotherapy-related side effects, as well as benefit rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, hematological diseases, diabetes, obesity, and oxidative stress. However, all the trials were small and a number of methodological problems arose. No adverse events of Wheatgrass have been reported, although some forms pose problems of tolerability. The popularity of Wheatgrass continues to grow. Nevertheless, the advantages seen in the clinical trials need to be proved in larger studies before clinical recommendations for the public can be given.

What we positively know is that Wheatgrass…

  • Detoxifies and cleanses your body
  • High alkalinity helps balance your body’s pH level
  • Strengthens your immune system
  • Insoluble fiber gently cleanses your digestive tract and promotes regularity.
  • Complete food with enzymes and all essential amino acids
  • Natural source of antioxidants to help repair damaged cells
  • Excellent source of beta-carotene, folic acid, and vitamin C

Maybe you should try Wheatgrass to see if it works better than the other vitamins that you’ve tried in the past.

Should I add wheatgrass to my smoothies?

Don’t forget the wheatgrass!

Why not! Wheatgrass is nutrient-rich young grass and though it’s in the wheat family you don’t have to be concerned about gluten or having allergic reactions to it. 

Though fresh juiced is always prefered you can take wheatgrass as a tablet, capsule or add it  to your smoothie in a powered or liquid form.out It’s sold as a dietary supplement in tablet, capsule, powder and liquid forms.

Though fresh juiced is always prefered you can take wheatgrass as a tablet, capsule or add it  to your smoothie in a powered or liquid form.out It’s sold as a dietary supplement in tablet, capsule, powder and liquid forms.

Wheatgrass provides a concentrated amount of nutrients and is an excellent source of vitamins A, B, C, E, K, and glutathione, along with iron, magnesium, calcium and 17 amino acids eight are considered essential, meaning your body cannot produce them and you must obtain them from food sources

 Wheatgrass is made up of more than 70% chlorophyll. This green plant blood is only one molecule different from human blood  and is associated with many health benefits. 

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

WHAT IS THYMOSIN BETA 4?

Thymosin is a hormone secreted from the thymus. Its primary function is to stimulate the production of T cells, which are an important part of the immune system. Thymosin also assists in the development of B cells to plasma cells to produce antibodies. The predominant form of thymosin, thymosin beta 4, is an actin, a cell building protein. One of the main mechanisms of action of Thymosin Beta-4 is its regulation of Actin. This cell-building protein is an essential component of cell structure and movement which leads to its role in tissue repair. Tβ 4 has been found to play an important role in protection, regeneration, and remodeling of injured or damaged tissues. After an injury, Tβ 4 is released by platelets and numerous other types of cells to protect the most damaged cells and tissues and to reduce inflammation and microbial growth.

Benefits of Thymosin beta 4:

  • Calms muscle spasms
  • Enhances muscle tone
  • Increased exchange of substances between cells
  • Encourages tissue repair
  • Stretches connective tissue
  • Helps maintain flexibility
  • Reduced inflammation of tissue in joints
  • Encourages the growth of new blood cells in tissue
  • Increased endurance and strength
  • Prevents the formation of adhesions and fibrous bands in muscles, tendons, and ligaments

Recent studies have revealed that the first gene to be upregulated after an injury is a Tβ4 gene. As the body begins the recovery process, Tβ4 aids in the creation of new vessels in the injured area, which carry blood, nutrients, and reparative substances to the site. Tβ4 also has anti-inflammatory properties and works to decrease the amount of inflammatory substances, called cytokines. Inflammation plays a large role in many of the symptoms associated with a number of other conditions (i.e., Lyme disease, CFS, FM, autoimmune diseases, infections, etc.), making the potential impact of Tβ4 quite extensive.

The discovery of the role of Tβ4 in the process of immune regulation has lead to its use as a valuable therapeutic agent. Tβ4 has been used in the treatment of HIV, AIDS, Influenza, colds, and various infections. It has been utilized in the management of various inflammatory conditions, as well as part of treatment following a heart attack due to its cardio and neuroprotective effects.

Tβ4 is very well tolerated and has not been found to cause any significant side effects. It can be taken on its own or in conjunction with an existing therapy, making it a versatile and valuable peptide.

55 Specific Wheatgrass Benefits

Wheatgrass the elixir of life! 50 plus benefits of drinking wheatgrass juice.

“Until man duplicates a blade of grass, nature can laugh at his so-called scientific knowledge.” Thomas A. Edison

Wheatgrass consumption for medicinal purposes has been in use for more than 5000 thousand years. The ancient Egyptian and Mesopotamian civilizations, designated wheatgrass as a sacred plant that was used in more than 100 healing modalities. The Egyptians considered it the elixir of life, and the Chinese used it for blood detoxification.

List of 55 Specific Wheatgrass Benefits

  1. A shot of wheatgrass is 70% chlorophyll, 12% water, 12% protein, 2% crude fiber, 2% fat, 1.8% minerals. Organically grown wheatgrass contains 92 of the 102 known minerals. Wheatgrass also contains 13 essential vitamins and minerals, and 20 plus amino acids are found in wheatgrass.
  2. Dr. Ann Wigmore taught, when we drink wheatgrass juice, regularly we feel a positive difference in strength, endurance, health, and spirituality, and experience a sense of well-being.
  3. The enzymes, amino acids, and chlorophyll in wheatgrass juice contain antibacterial compounds that are especially good at destroying anaerobic bacteria that thrive in oxygen-poor blood and tissue.
  4. Science has proven that chlorophyll arrests growth and development of unfriendly bacteria. Because wheatgrass is 70% Chlorophyll, it makes short work of bacteria and can be used inside and outside the body as a healer.
  5. Dr. Birscher, a research scientist, called the chlorophyll in wheatgrass “concentrated sun power.” He said, “Chlorophyll increases the function of the heart, affects the vascular system, the intestines, the uterus, and the lungs.”
  6. Wheatgrass juice is great for blood disorders of all kinds, including anemia. A recent study in The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that supplementing with the natural antioxidants found in wheatgrass “holds great promise in overcoming the ill effects of oxygen toxicity,.”
  7. Today, we know wheatgrass is one of the most potent sources of living chlorophyll available. Wheatgrass juice is great for blood disorders of all kinds, including anemia.
  8. A recent study in The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that supplementing with the natural antioxidants found in wheatgrass “holds great promise in overcoming the ill effects of oxygen toxicity,.”
  9. Wheatgrass Juice reduces high blood pressure and enhances the capillaries.
  10. Wheatgrass juice can be taken by a human or animal orally, vaginally, as a poultice and as a colon implant. Wheatgrass implants (enemas) are great for healing and detoxifying the colon walls. The implants also heal and cleanse the internal organs.
  11. How to do wheatgrass implants – After doing a pure water enema, wait 10 minutes, and then implant 3-6 ounces of wheatgrass juice. Retain it for 20 minutes.
  12. The chlorophyll in wheatgrass goes into the bloodstream, fills the tissues, extricates dying and diseased cell, making room for new healthy live cells, rejuvenating tissues, thus slowing the aging process.
  13. The liquid chlorophyll in wheatgrass washes unwanted drug deposits from the body.
  14. Wheatgrass combined with a raw living foods diet cures acne in days and removes scars after it has been ingested for six to eight months.
  15. Wheatgrass juice acts as a detergent in the body and is used as a body deodorant.
  16. A small amount of wheatgrass in the human diet helps prevents tooth decay.
  17. The chlorophyll in the wheatgrass helps purify the liver.
  18. Toxins in and on the body are more easily neutralized by the chlorophyll in wheatgrass.
  19. Diabetics benefit from the chlorophyll in the wheatgrass as it balances blood sugar.
  20. It is easily absorbed and carries high levels of oxygen and light energy to the body. Being loaded with chlorophyll and chlorophyll being the first product of light, therefore means wheatgrass contains massive amounts of light energy.
  21. Chlorophyll is the lifeblood of wheatgrass and is quickly assimilated into our bodies and is just one molecule different in structure than our own blood.
  22. Being loaded with oxygen wheatgrass helps us to think clearer as it feeds our brain, tissues, and organs with optimal levels of chlorophyll based oxygenated nutrients.
  23. The amino acids in wheatgrass are absorbed directly into the blood and act to neutralize toxic substances like cadmium, nicotine, strontium, mercury and polyvinyl chloride (a type of plastic) by changing them into insoluble salts that the body can eliminate quickly, rejuvenating the tissues, thus slowing the aging process.
  24. Wheatgrass also rebuilds the bloodstream. Studies of various animals have shown the chlorophyll in wheatgrass raises the red blood cell count. The red cell count was returned to normal within 4 to 5 days of the administration of chlorophyll, even in those animals which were known to be extremely anemic or low in red cell count.
  25. Just soaking in a bathtub of wheatgrass bath for a ½ hour for each day for 5 days will raise the red blood cell count.
  26. Dr. Ann Wigmore proved that wheatgrass takes only minutes to get digested and therefore uses up very little of the body’s energy.
  27. Wheatgrass is also a powerful heavy metal detoxifier and studies have shown to remove heavy metals from the body. Wheatgrass also has a positive effect on sterility and can restore fertility. (The high magnesium content in chlorophyll builds enzymes that restore the sex hormones.)
  28. Wheatgrass juice held in the mouth for 5 minutes will help eliminate toothaches. It pulls poisons from the gums
  29. Do what Dr. Ann Wigmore did and drink Wheatgrass Juice to keep your hair from graying.
  30. Toxic side effects – Wheatgrass has no known toxic side effects and is a powerful full body detoxifier.
  31. In the American Journal of Surgery (1940), Benjamin Gruskin, M.D. recommends chlorophyll for its antiseptic benefits.
  32. Clears up foul smelling odors.
  33. Neutralizes Strep infections.
  34. Heals wounds.
  35. Hastens skin grafting.
  36. Cures chronic sinusitis.
  37. Overcomes chronic inner-ear inflammation and infection.
  38. Reduces varicose veins.
  39. Heals leg ulcers.
  40. Eliminates impetigo and other scabby eruptions.
  41. Heals hemorrhoids and rectal sores.
  42. Treats inflammation of the uterine cervix.
  43. Gets rid of parasitic vaginal infections.
  44. Reduces typhoid fever symptoms.
  45. Cures advanced pyorrhea in many cases.
  46. Dissolves the scars that are formed in the lungs from breathing acid gasses.
  47. Cut out spending money on costly probiotics as wheatgrass juice is high in live enzymes.
  48. As a poultice, wheatgrass fiber can provide amazing results on ulcerated skin, boils, acne, and infections.
  49. Gum disease of the mouth is helped by rinsing and applying a wheatgrass poultice. Use the fiber(pulp) left over from juicing to make a poultice.
  50. B17 in wheatgrass has been shown to have positive effects on the immune system.
  51. Help rebuild and balance the immune system, enabling the body to strengthen itself so it can eliminate cancer cells.
  52. Wheatgrass may be an anti-cancer super food, precisely due to selenium and laetrile which are anti-cancer compounds found in wheatgrass.
  53. Cancer cells like acidic atmosphere and wheatgrass help alkalize the body.
  54. With wheatgrass, the body becomes a more difficult place for cancer cells to continue thriving.
  55. Along with Dr. Ann Wigmore and like minded colleagues we have been showing people how to take charge of their lives, drink wheatgrass, and recover from chronic and life-threatening health disorders for 100 years.
  56. BONUS – Plant a small trays of wheatgrass and set them throughout your home, especially placing them on your nightstand. e You will notice the air in your home stays fresh and oxygenated and that you will sleep much sounder.

A Brief History of Wheatgrass

The medicinal value of wheatgass has been known about for more than 5000 years.

“Wheatgrass juice is the nectar of rejuvenation, the plasma of youth, the blood of all life. The elements that are missing in our body’s cells – especially enzymes, vitamins, hormones, and nucleic acids can be obtained through this daily green sunlight transfusion”. – Viktoras Kulvinskas, Author of Survival into the 21st Century

Throughout the history of wheatgrass, it has been recognized for its beneficial health effects. Mankind has always known that livestock showed improved health and vigor when they feed on the young grasses of early spring. Herdsmen have moved their livestock across every continent in search of the best grazing grasses for their animals.

Today, grass is the world’s most widespread form of vegetation. There are over 12,000 species of grass found across the planet, covering more than 25% of the earth land mass. You will find grass wherever there is the sun, water, and soil. Grass has truly become recognized as the staff of life with four of the world’s top five crops being grains/grasses.

The use of wheatgrass can be traced back more than six thousand years, to ancient early Mesopotamian and Egyptian civilizations.

Five thousand years ago, Egyptians were using wheatgrass for health purposes. The Priests, Pharaohs, and influential members of ancient Egyptian society used wheatgrass regularly, believing that it improved their health.

Nebuchadnezzar, king of the Babylonian Empire, and builder of the Hanging Gardens reigned from 605 BC – 562 BC., reportedly restricted his diet to grasses and attributed the health benefits of this magnificent chlorophyll rich plant to the improvement of his physical and mental health.

Almost two thousand years ago, during the first century A.D., we found a Jewish sect known as the Essene’s using wheatgrass as a healing food. From their holy book The Gospel of Peace, translated by Edmund Bordeaux Szekely, we read:
“We may also eat of the tender blades of grass that the strength of the Earthly Mother may enter into us. But chew well the blades, for the Son of Man has teeth unlike those of beasts, and only when we chew well the blades of grass can the Angel of Water enter our blood and give us strength. Eat, then, Sons of Light, of this most perfect herb from the table of our Earthly Mother, that your days may be long upon the earth, for such finds favor in the eyes of God.”

WELCOME TO WHEATGRASS SCIENCE IN THE 20TH CENTURY
In 1915 Dr. Richard Willstätter’s pioneering work on natural products; especially chlorophyll was honored with the 1915 Nobel Prize in chemistry. His founding of the healthful link between the chlorophyll in plants and the hemoglobin in our blood was the start of scientific research into how close the composition of chlorophyll and human blood are. He showed that chlorophyll molecules bonded in in a very similar way as the iron molecule in hemoglobin. Close to the time of Dr. Willstätter’s work and discovery of the wonder of chlorophyll, in the laboratory, world war I had broken out across Europe. In the small county of Lithuania, a young girl named Ann Wigmore watched as her grandmother treated sick and wounded soldiers with grass poultices as well as having them drink the juice of the grasses. Later in life, Ann drank wheatgrass to manage her own colon disease.

In the late 1920’s and early 1930’s scientists, including Charles Francis Schnabel were studying grasses and green leafy vegetables and unlocking their nutritional mysteries. They tested all types of plant and meat based feeds and found that animals did not only survive on the grass-based feed but thrived on it, in contrast, their health failed when they were fed other healthy vegetables, including green leafy vegetables.

In 1931 Charles Francis Schnabel an American school teacher and agricultural chemist who is kindly referred to as the “father of wheatgrass” discovered that wheat and barley grasses reached their nutritional peak at or just before the commencement of the jointing stage. Because he was an agricultural chemist, the focus of Schnabel’s studies were based in developing feeds for livestock, which would help them recover more quickly from sickness, grow faster, and increase fertility. His research proved to be the most in-depth study of its time, demonstrating the nutritional value of grasses and how the dietary values changed through different stages of the plant’s life.

Struck by the power of wheatgrass, Charles Schnabel started promoting his discoveries to feed mills, chemists and the food industry. Two large corporations that are still with us today (Quaker Oats and American Dairies) invested millions of dollars into funding further research. Joined by others, such as biochemist George Kohler, his passion inspired a body of scientific research and much of his research finding served as the basis of Dr. Ann Wigmores development of wheatgrass therapy.

The “Wheatgrass Juice Factor”

In the mid-1930s, at the University of Wisconsin, Dr. George Kohler and his colleagues were studying the differences in the nutritional value of cow’s milk produced at different seasons of the year. Although they thrived on summer milk, experimental rats and guinea pigs failed to grow and eventually became sick and died when fed winter milk. The higher nutritional value of the summer milk was found to be due to the grasses eaten by the cows in the spring and summer. Thus began research on the “Grass Juice Factor”, a water-soluble extract of grass juice which was responsible for this growth effect.

Most of the individual vitamins that we know about today were identified during the 1930s by scientists working to identify all the nutritional factors necessary for growth and reproduction in humans and domestic animals.

Scientists were amazed to find, when they added green chlorophyll-rich foods to the diets of test animals, the growth and health effects of cereal grass and the “Grass Juice Factor” were far our stripping any other type of supplementation. By the late 1930s, dehydrated and dried cereal grasses were available in several forms for use as a human and animal food supplements.

After many years of research and testing, the scientists at the University of Wisconsin determine the highest levels of the “Grass Juice Factor”, was found in cereal grass (wheatgrass), young white clover, peas, and cabbage.

At the University of California at Berkeley, Dr. Mott Cannon and his colleagues found that guinea pigs health rapidly failed when fed a stock ration plus high levels of all the then-known nutrients. When the researchers added standard food supplements such as liver extracts, wheat germ, and brewer’s yeast to the animals’ diets, the guinea pigs remained sick and often died. The addition of grass or grass juice brought about dramatic recovery and restimulated growth in these animals.

In 1935, Danish researchers discovered vitamin K, the “Koagulation vitamin”. Because this nutrient was difficult to isolate in large quantities, cereal grasses were used in place of purified vitamin K—both for research and for medical therapy.

In 1938 Folic acid was identified, being named after the green leaves, or foliage, which proved to be its most abundant source. Scientists knew they were on to something as they observed the health and growth benefits that the known vitamins and minerals in the cereal grasses provide. Other benefits, however, could not be attributed to known nutrients.

In the early 1940s, Dr. Charles Kettering (former chairman of the board of General Motors) donated money for the study of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll was studied intensively by scientist and medical doctors (there are currently over 70 articles written up in scientific and medical journals about the healing effects of chlorophyll.) These scientist and medical doctors found that chlorophyll was a great healer.

In 1940, in the American Journal of Surgery, Benjamin Cruskin, M.D., recommends chlorophyll for its antiseptic benefits. The article suggests the following clinical uses for chlorophyll:

“To clear up foul-smelling odours, neutralize strep infections, heal wounds, hasten skin grafting, cure chronic sinusitis, overcome 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 pyorrhea in many cases”.

Through the 1940s and 1950s, scientist continued to research the potential of cereal grasses and their effect on humans and animals. Expanded research led to their finding that cereal grass was shown to contain factors which support the growth of lactobacilli and other beneficial intestinal bacteria, block the development of scurvy, stop the formation of histamine-induced and peptic ulcers.

OTHER UNIDENTIFIED HEALTH FACTORS IN CEREAL GRASSES
By 1950, all the nutrients now considered essential to the human diet (except for selenium) had been identified. But researchers continued to describe green food “factors” which could not be correlated with any known nutrient.

I see a world without sickness…a world in complete harmony and in perfect physical, mental, and spiritual balance by following nature’s laws of cause and effect. – Ann Wigmore

In the late 1950’s early 1960’s Ann Wigmore “re-discovered” wheatgrass and was able to cure her own ‘untreatable’ colon cancer. She also had been a terrible accident which had crushed her legs, gangrene set in and the doctors wanted to amputate her legs. Ann had made friends with Dr. Earp Thomas, who believed that wheatgrass was one of the most potent healing foods known to man. Dr. Thomas found that an ounce of wheatgrass in a gallon of fluoridated water would turn the fluorine into the harmless calcium-phosphate-fluoride compound. Used in wash water, it adds softness to the face and hands. It stops bleeding, eases itching, and helps in wound healing. Dr. Thomas further discovered that fruits and vegetables contaminated by sprays were thoroughly cleaned and the harmful food transformed by wash water with a wisp of wheatgrass placed in the water.

As Ann spent untold hours with her mentor, Dr. Thomas and as she learned more and more about the medicinal effects of grass, she decided to heal herself of her disease and her injuries. She began drinking fresh wheatgrass and eating wild and natural raw living foods. She shared wheatgrass with several sick friends, and along with herself, each recovered from their sickness.

Drinking wheatgrass should not be considered a one-stop cure-all. Although wheatgrass has helped hundreds of thousands of people recover from serious illnesses, it is neither a drug nor a magic bullet.

As of 2019, Creative Health International, (CHI) wheatgrass is grown on the premises and serves as one of our nutritional cornerstones in our full body detoxification and rebuilding health process. We believe that when our students and guests take in substantial quantities of wheatgrass along with raw living foods and probiotics, they quickly overcome their health challenges. When we have them take the time to address their lifestyle physically, spiritually and their mental and emotional states, they can create an immune system that will not be as much affected by any illness.

I invite you to join us on the beautiful journey to health and happiness as you make drinking at least 2 ounces of wheatgrass daily as apart of your living a healthy lifestyle.

Love & blessings, Bobby

Simple Healthful Herbs And Healing Foods For Your Children

One of our past guests had just become a new grandmother and she asked my opinion on raw living foods for children and if children could eat herbs when they were sick. That is why I am writing this article  — because she asked me to help her and because I thought some of our other past guests and readers could benefit from how I answered her questions.

Keeping our children healthy is our primary purpose as parents and grandparents.  The living foods lifestyle is the strongest health foundation you can give your child, yet there are times when parents must consider additional modalities when helping their children through an illness.  It’s my hope that you will never have to use any of the following herbs or concoctions, but if you do, keep in mind herbs can interact with other herbs, supplements and/or medications. For these reasons, you should only give herbs to a child when under the supervision of a health care practitioner. So if you do want to use these time-tested protocols, please consult your healthcare provider for diagnosis and medical advice before giving them to your children.

The following list of symptoms and the herbs and concoctions used to address them is by no means meant to be a comprehensive listing and only reflects some of the protocols I am personally aware of.  If you have found other simple protocols please feel free to add them to the comments.  I would love to hear from you.

Blessings,

Bobby

Herbs and Protocols

Colic:  When your child cries for extended periods (1-2 hours), pulls its legs up to the belly, or extends its legs out and will not calm down they may be experiencing colic.  Mild, yet effective herbal teas made from Anise, Catnip, Caraway or Fennel and Peppermint have been used by mothers to soothe their children’s colic.

Colds: When your child is suffering from a cold you also suffer.  All of these herbs and concoctions will really help your child when they are fighting a cold. Your first line of defense should be used early and often. Echinacea is a great all round herb which provides immune support and may help protect your child from viral and bacterial infections.   I also like Anise as it will help with breaking up the mucus and make it easier for your child to breath and get mucus out of his/her body.  You may also want to make a Chamomile tea, infused with peppermint, licorice and lemon balm. This concoction will help calm your child’s cough and works as an expectorant. If your child is older you may want to talk to your health care provider about Mullen tea.

Constipation:  Good hydration is the most effective way to relieve constipation and this is easy to achieve when your child is getting plenty of pure water along with raw fruits and vegetables which contain large amounts of water. Also, a blend of Chamomile and Marigold teas will help prevent constipation, while gently helping your little one’s bowels to move.  Two other good herbs are aloe and Sienna both possesses laxative action and act on your child’s large intestine to stimulate peristalsis.

Cough: When your child coughs it is a sign that his/her body is attempting to an inflamed (croup- dry cough) or mucus congested airway (wet cough).  All of the herbal remedies I’m sharing with you will decrease inflammation, reduce mucus production and have a soothing relaxing effect that quickly helps stop the coughing.   Warm herbal tea with licorice, honey (only give honey to children who are at least 1 year old) and a little lemon juice is excellent for helping ease the tickle that sets off a cough.  Children of all ages who have coughs benefit from running a humidifier with eucalyptus oil in the water as it will break up mucus and soothe your child’s coughing reflex.  Make sure the humidifier is out of your child’s reach, or use a cold humidifier.  Also, if your child is over 1 year old give them a spoonful of honey with a little lemon mixed in before they go to bed as this will help alleviate soreness.  There are many wonderful natural herbal cough syrups that you can make or purchase.  Contact your health care for recipes and suggestions.  Don’t forget to keep checking your child’s temperature and to keep him/her hydrated.

Cradle Cap: Consists of dead skin cells which remain attached to your babies head. These dead skin cells block your baby’s pores and mix with body oils.  Cradle Cap usually appears within the first days of your child’s life.  Your child will not usually experience itching or pain with Cradle Cap.  Before bedtime you can rinse your baby’s head with a simple warm mixture of  Calendula and Comfrey, then let the baby’s scalp air dry, then massage organic olive oil mixed with lavender and mullein into the scalp and leave it in overnight, wash it away with mild natural soap and water each morning. The Cradle Cap should disappear within a few days.  Seborrhea- is a form of Cradle Cap that has formed on other areas of the body.

Diaper Rash:  Is usually caused by a diaper containing urine/stool and the material of the diaper rubbing against the child’s skin.  The way to identify this type of rash is to look at the folds of the skin (which are more protected) if they are not red, you have diaper rash caused by simple irritation.   Most other diaper rashes are caused by yeast or bacterial infections. The yeast rash will show up bright red, often with small red pimples on the outer edges.  The bacterial rash will have fluid-filled pimples which look yellowish with some crusty areas.

Diarrhea: As your child begins to eat different combinations of foods the bowels sometime will react and your child may get diarrhea. To alleviate the discomfort associated with diarrhea, you may want to have your child eat fresh grated raw or lightly steamed carrots, mixed with equal parts applesauce (include the apple’s skin).  I also like raspberry and peppermint tea blended, as this concoction helps to stop cramping, calms diarrhea and will also help lower a fever.

Earache: If your child experiences regular earaches or earaches which last more than 12 hours be sure to contact your physician.  Usually, earaches accompany colds and coughs. If you are a smoker stop!  Smoke from cigarettes plays a major role in many children’s earaches.  Before giving your child herbs or medications, try sitting him/her up and placing a cool washcloth on the ear that is troubling them.  If your child is old enough to chew gum give him/her a piece of herbal chewing gum, as this can sometimes lower the pain. As long as your child’s eardrum is not punctured you may want to warm some olive oil and add a few drops of grapefruit seed extract along with a drop of garlic and tea tree oil. Place a piece of warm cotton in the ear and lay a warm, slightly damp cloth over the ear and begin a vaporizer that has eucalyptus oil in it. You may repeat putting on warm clothes until your child’s ear stops hurting.  Should your child’s earache not subside, you should contact your physician.

Teething: Children seeking comfort from the pain of teething can use lemon balm as a tea or can chew on a washcloth soaked in the tea.

Dr. Ann Wigmores Orginal VegeKraut “Veggie Kraut” Recipe

Eating this amazing food everyday will completley recharge your immune system.

While I was the director of the Creative Health Institute, this wonderful food was served at every meal.  Some of the benefits associated with eating  regular and VegeKrauts  are:

Sauerkraut is an immune system booster
Packed with enzymes, vitamins, phytonutrients and minerals, sauerkraut has a wonderful effect on the immune system and has been used as an immune booster for centuries.  Sauerkraut contains, lactic acid bacteria and photochemical which are created and enhanced during the fermentation process. These naturally occurring, beneficial by-products of sauerkraut help boost the immune system which leads to a decrease in a number of health problems. The common cold, skin problems, weight gain, and tainted blood are all fixed by a healthy functioning immune system.

Sauerkraut is a cancer fighter
Sauerkraut’  is a superfood, with the ability to inhibit and even destroy cancer cells.  Studies published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry concluded that sauerkraut is a cancer inhibitor. The study discovered that the fermentation of cabbage produced a substance called isothiocyanate, which prevents cancer growth, particularly in the breast, colon, lung, and liver.  The University of New Mexico published a study linking sauerkraut consumption by adolescent females to a reduced risk for breast cancer earlier studies indicate sauerkraut may reduce the risk for other forms of cancer including lung, colon, prostate, and liver

“We are finding that fermented cabbage to be healthier than raw or cooked cabbage, especially for fighting cancer”, says Eeva-Liisa Ryhanen, Ph.D., research manager of MTT Agrifood Research Finland, located in Jokioinen, Finland. A recent study by the American Center for Cancer Research has found that sauerkraut has a profound effect on preventing and healing breast cancer. Based on reports that breast cancer rates amongst polish women in the United States were much higher than those in Poland researchers set out to find out why. Their answer; the women who still lived in Poland ate significantly larger amounts of sauerkraut especially important while they were in adolescence. The research found that the women who immigrated Americanized’ their diets and stopped eating as much of the superfood that is sauerkraut thus increasing their rates of breast cancer.

Digestive Aid
Eating sauerkraut is a great way to protect the balance of bacteria in your gastrointestinal tract. Sauerkraut is one of the few foods that contain the bacterium Lactobacilli Plantarum. L. Plantarum is a very dominant strain of healthful bacteria which helps your digestive system in the following ways: boost the immune system by increasing antibodies that fight infectious disease help inhibit pathogenic organisms including E.coli, salmonella and unhealthy overgrowth of candida (yeast) create antioxidants (glutathione and superoxide dismutase) that scavenge free radicals which are a cancer precursor transforms hard-to-digest lactose from milk to the more easily digested lactic acid. It neutralizes the anti-nutrients found in many foods including the phytic acid found in all grains and the trypsin-inhibitors in soy generates new nutrients including omega-3 fatty acids, digestive aids, and the trace mineral GTF chromium. These various properties are the best scientific reasons given for what has been known by loyal users for millennia, sauerkraut cures an upset stomach and is the best natural physic there is. Many sources say raw fermented foods are beneficial to the digestive system by increasing the healthy flora in the intestinal tract or creating the type of environment for them to flourish. Sauerkraut and its juice are traditional folk remedies for constipation. Fermentation actually increases nutrient values in the cabbage, especially vitamin C.

Fermented foods facilitate the breakdown and assimilation of proteins. They have a soothing effect on the nervous system. The benefits of sauerkraut and sauerkraut juice have been recognized for generations. In some families of southern Germany, the children are fed raw sauerkraut twice weekly to support their intestines.

Avian Flu Fighter
With the spread of Avian Flu spreading across the globe,  Korean scientist, Kang Sa-Ouk of Seoul National University, took 13 chickens infected with the avian flu virus and fed them Kim Chi extract.  11 of the birds recovered. It appears that the vital bacteria are created during the fermenting process and this gives the Kim Chi (Kraut)  its health-boosting qualities.

Super Healthy Smoothie Rescipe

SMOOTHIES

Super Health Restorer Smoothie Recipe

Make This Smoothie Work For You As It Cleanses, Detoxes, Rejuvenates And Rebuilds Your Body.

  • 2 cups of probiotic-enzymatic liquid
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 10 strawberries
  • 1 mango
  • 2 apples
  • 1 banana
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 ounce of wheatgrass

Power of Spinach – Spinach nutrition is amazing. The calcium content in spinach and the other dark leafy greens mentioned above strengthens bones.

The A and C vitamins in spinach plus the fiber, folic acid, magnesium and other nutrients help control cancer, especially colon, lung, and breast cancers. Folate also lowers the blood levels of something called homocysteine, a protein that damages arteries. So spinach also helps protect against heart disease. The flavonoids in spinach help protect against age-related memory loss. Spinach’s secret weapon, lutein, makes it one of the best foods in the world to prevent cataracts, as well as age-related macular degeneration, the leading cause of preventable blindness in the elderly. Foods rich in lutein are also thought to help prevent cancer.

Power of Strawberries – Strawberries have higher levels of vitamin c, fiber, folate and potassium than most other fruits like bananas, apples and even oranges.

Apart from the obvious health benefits, a recent study by Dr. Gene Spiller, Nutrition, and Health Research Center has shown that eating one serving (about 8-10 strawberries) a day can significantly decrease blood pressure, which may reduce the risk of heart disease.

Other studies showed additional benefits: Strawberries are found to reduce the risk of cancer, enhance memory function and rheumatoid arthritis.

Power of Mangos – Mangos are super fruits! Succulent sweet tropical delights high in Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Potassium, Copper and Vitamin A.  According to a new research study, mango has been found to protect against colon, breast, leukemia and prostate cancers. Several trial studies suggest that polyphenolic anti-oxidant compounds in mango are known to offer protection against breast and colon cancers, as well.

Power of Apples – French researchers found that a flavanoid called phloridzin that is found only in apples may protect post-menopausal women from osteoporosis and may also increase bone density. Boron, another ingredient in apples, also strengthens bones. Another study shows that children with asthma who drank apple juice on a daily basis suffered from less wheezing than children who did not drink apple juice on a regular basis.onth. Another study at Cornell University found that the quercetin in apples may protect brain cells from the kind of free radical damage that may lead to Alzheimer’s disease.  When we eat apples we can lower LDL (“bad”) cholesterol. Studies have shown that people who eat two apples per day may lower their cholesterol by as much as 16 percent.

Power of Apples & Cancer Prevention

Lung Cancer
According to a study of 10,000 people, those who ate the most apples had a 50 percent lower risk of developing lung cancer. Researchers believe this is due to the high levels of the flavonoids quercetin and naringin in apples.

Breast Cancer
A Cornell University study found that rats who ate one apple per day reduced their risk of breast cancer by 17 percent. Rats fed three apples per day reduced their risk by 39 percent and those fed six apples per day reduced their risk by 44 percent.

Colon Cancer
One study found that rats fed an extract from apple skins had a 43 percent lower risk of colon cancer. Other research shows that the pectin in apples reduces the risk of colon cancer and helps maintain a healthy digestive tract.

Liver Cancer Prevention
Research has found that rats fed an extract from apple skins had a 57 percent lower risk of liver cancer.

Power of Lemons – Fresh lemons have strong antibacterial, antiviral, and immune-boosting powers. Lemons are also used as a weight loss aid as lemon juice is a digestive aid and liver cleanser. Lemons contain many healthful substances–notably citric acid, calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, bioflavonoids, pectin, and limonene–that promote immunity and fight infection. The most valuable ingredient of lemon, next to vitamin C, is citric acid, of which it contains 7.2 percent. Lemon contains more potassium than apples or grapes, which makes its juice beneficial to the heart.

Power of wheatgrass

  • Increases and sustains energy naturally
  • Detoxifies and cleanses your body
  • High alkalinity helps balance your body’s pH level
  • Strengthens your immune system
  • Insoluble fiber gently cleanses your digestive tract and promotes regularity
  • Complete food with enzymes and all essential amino acids
  • Natural source of antioxidants to help repair damaged cells
  • Excellent source of beta-carotene, folic acid, and vitamin C

Be sure to add this amazingly healthy smoothie to your weekly repertoire of different smoothie concoctions. Be sure to not have the raw spinach more than 3 days in a row. You can change out other greens on the alternate days.

Wishing you life health and happiness

Bobby
