Happy 4th of July, 2021, 50 Benefits of Wheatgrass

“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 thant 100 healting modalites. The Egyptians considered it the elixor of life and the Chinese used it for blood detoxification.

A shot of wheatgrass is 70% chlorophyll, 12% water, 12% protein, 2.2crude 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.

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.

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.
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.

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.”

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. 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,.”

Some Very Beneficial Wheatgrass Juice Benefits.

  1. Wheatgrass Juice reduces high blood pressure and enhances the capillaries.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Enema’s containing wheatgrass has proven to eliminate constipation ans purify the blood.
  5. 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.
  6. The liquid chlorophyll in wheatgrass washes unwanted drug deposits from the body.
  7. 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.
  8. Wheatgrass juice acts as a detergent in the body and is used as a body deodorant.
  9. A small amount of wheatgrass in the human diet helps prevents tooth decay.
  10. Toxins in and on the body are more easily neutralized by the chlorophyll in wheatgrass.
  11. The chlorophyll in the wheatgrass helps purify the liver.
  12. Diabetics benefit from the chlorophyll in the wheatgrass as it balances blood sugar.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. Dr. Ann Wigmore proved that wheatgrass takes only minutes to ge digested and therefore uses up very little of the body’s energy.
  20. 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.)
  21. Wheatgrass juice held in the mouth for 5 minutes will help eliminate toothaches. It pulls poisons from the gums
  22. Do what Dr. Ann Wigmore did and drink Wheatgrass Juice to keep your hair from graying.
  23. Toxic side effects – Wheatgrass has no known toxic side effects and is a powerful full body detoxifier.
  24. In the American Journal of Surgery (1940), Benjamin Gruskin, M.D. recommends chlorophyll for its antiseptic benefits.
  25. Clears up foul smelling odors.
  26. Neutralizes Strep infections.
  27. Heals wounds.
  28. Hastens skin grafting.
  29. Cures chronic sinusitis.
  30. Overcomes chronic inner-ear inflammation and infection.
  31. Reduces varicose veins.
  32. Heals leg ulcers.
  33. Eliminates impetigo and other scabby eruptions.
  34. Heals hemorrhoids and rectal sores.
  35. Treats inflammation of the uterine cervix.
  36. Gets rid of parasitic vaginal infections.
  37. Reduces typhoid fever symptoms.
  38. Cures advanced pyorrhea in many cases.
  39. Dissolves the scars that are formed in the lungs from breathing acid gasses.
  40. The effect of carbon monoxide is minimized since chlorophyll increases hemoglobin production.
  41. Gargle Wheatgrass Juice for a sore throat.
  42. Cut out spending money on costly probiotics as wheatgrass juice is high in live enzymes.
  43. As a poultice, wheatgrass fiber can provide amazing results on ulcerated skin, boils, acne, and infections.
  44. Gum disease of the mouth is helped by rinsing and applying a wheatgrass poultice. Use the fiber(pulp) leftover from juicing to make a poultice.
  45. B17 in wheatgrass has been shown to have positive effects on the immune system.
  46. Help rebuild and balance the immune system , enabling the body to strengthen itself so it can eliminate cancer cells.
  47. Wheatgrass may be an anti-cancer super food, precisely due to selenium and laetrile which are anti-cancer compounds found in wheatgrass.
  48. Cancer cells like acidic atmosphere and wheatgrass help alkalize the body.
  49. With wheatgrass, the body becomes a more difficult place for cancer cells to continue thriving.
  50. Accompanied Dr. Ann Wigmore’s, spirit we continue showing people how to take charge of their lives, drink wheatgrass, and recover from chronic and life-threatening health disorders in 2021.

Wishing everyone a wonderful 4th of July holiday here in the USA and to our friends around the world may you be blessed in everything you do.

Blessings to all. Bobby

Standard American Diet Is A Recipe for Disaster

 

Recipe for Disaster

Ninety percent of Americans’ household food budget is spent on processed foods, the majority of which are filled with additives and stripped of nutrients. Discover which common ingredients in the foods you eat pose the greatest risk to your health.    Grab the broccoli with cheese sauce from the freezer, the box of instant rice pilaf from the pantry, or the hot dogs from your fridge and squint at the ingredient list’s fine print. You’ll likely find food additives in every one.

Is this healthy? Compared to the foods our bodies were built to eat, definitely not!

Processed, packaged foods have almost completely taken over the diet of Americans. In fact, nearly 90 percent of our household food budget is spent on processed foods, according to industry estimates.

Unfortunately, most processed foods are laden with sweeteners, salts, artificial flavors, factory-created fats, colorings, chemicals that alter texture, and preservatives. But the trouble is not just what’s been added, but what’s been taken away. Processed foods are often stripped of nutrients designed by nature to protect your heart, such as soluble fiber, antioxidants, and “good” fats. Combine that with additives, and you have a recipe for disaster.

 

Here are the big four ingredients in processed foods you should look out for:

TRANS FATS

Trans fats are in moist bakery muffins and crispy crackers, microwave popcorn and fast-food French fries, even the stick margarine you may rely on as a “heart-healthy” alternative to saturated-fat-laden butter.

Once hailed as a cheap, heart-friendly replacement for butter, lard, and coconut oil, trans fats have, in recent times, been denounced by one Harvard nutrition expert as “the biggest food-processing disaster in U.S. history.” Why? Research now reveals trans fats are twice as dangerous for your heart as saturated fat, and cause an estimated 30,000 to 100,000 premature heart disease deaths each year.

Trans fats are worse for your heart than saturated fats because they boost your levels of “bad” LDL cholesterol and decrease “good” HDL cholesterol. That’s double trouble for your arteries. And unlike saturated fats, trans fats also raise your levels of artery-clogging lipoprotein and triglycerides.

Trans fats will be listed on the “Nutrition Facts” panel on food beginning in 2006. Until then, check the ingredient list for any of these words: “partially hydrogenated,” “fractionated,” or “hydrogenated” (fully hydrogenated fats are not a heart threat, but some trans fats are mislabeled as “hydrogenated”). The higher up the phrase “partially hydrogenated oil” is on the list of ingredients, the more trans fat the product contains.

Replacing trans fats with good fats could cut your heart attack risk by a whopping 53 percent.

REFINED GRAINS

Choosing refined grains such as white bread, rolls, sugary low-fiber cereal, white rice, or white pasta over whole grains can boost your heart attack risk by up to 30 percent. You’ve got to be a savvy shopper. Don’t be fooled by deceptive label claims such as “made with wheat flour” or “seven grain.” Or by white-flour breads topped with a sprinkling of oats, or colored brown with molasses. Often, they’re just the same old refined stuff that raises risk for high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart attacks, insulin resistance, diabetes, and belly fat.

At least seven major studies show that women and men who eat more whole grains (including dark bread, whole-grain breakfast cereals, popcorn, cooked oatmeal, brown rice, bran, and other grains like bulgur or kasha) have 20 to 30 percent less heart disease. In contrast, those who opt for refined grains have more heart attacks, insulin resistance, and high blood pressure.

Read the ingredient list on packaged grain products. If the product is one of those that are best for you, the first ingredients should be whole wheat or another whole grain, such as oats. The fiber content should be at least 3 grams per serving.

SALT

Three-quarters of the sodium in our diets isn’t from the saltshaker. It’s hidden in processed foods, such as canned vegetables and soups, condiments like soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce, fast-food burgers (and fries, of course), and cured or preserved meats like bacon, ham, and deli turkey.

Some sodium occurs naturally in unprocessed edibles, including milk, beets, celery, even some drinking water. And that’s a good thing: Sodium is necessary for life. It helps regulate blood pressure, maintains the body’s fluid balance, transmits nerve impulses, makes muscles — including your heart — contract, and keeps your senses of taste, smell, and touch working properly. You need a little every day to replace what’s lost to sweat, tears, and other excretions.

Not So Sweet After All

But what happens when you eat more salt than your body needs? Your body retains fluid simply to dilute the extra sodium in your bloodstream. This raises blood volume, forcing your heart to work harder; at the same time, it makes veins and arteries constrict. The combination raises blood pressure.

Your limit should be 1,500 milligrams of sodium per day, about the amount in three-fourths of a teaspoon of salt. (Table salt, by the way, is 40 percent sodium, 60 percent chloride.) Older people should eat even less, to counteract the natural rise in blood pressure that comes with age. People over 50 should strive for 1,300 mg; those over 70 should aim for 1,200 mg.

Only the “Nutrition Facts” panel on a food package will give you the real sodium count. Don’t believe claims on the package front such as “sodium-free” (foods can still have 5 mg per serving); “reduced sodium” (it only means 25 percent less than usual); or “light in sodium” (half the amount you’d normally find).

HIGH-FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP

Compared to traditional sweeteners, high-fructose corn syrup costs less to make, is sweeter to the taste, and mixes more easily with other ingredients. Today, we consume nearly 63 pounds of it per person per year in drinks and sweets, as well as in other products. High-fructose corn syrup is in many frozen foods. It gives bread an inviting, brown color and soft texture, so it’s also in whole-wheat bread, hamburger buns, and English muffins. It is in beer, bacon, spaghetti sauce, soft drinks, and even ketchup.

Research is beginning to suggest that this liquid sweetener may upset the human metabolism, raising the risk for heart disease and diabetes. Researchers say that high-fructose corn syrup’s chemical structure encourages overeating. It also seems to force the liver to pump more heart-threatening triglycerides into the bloodstream. In addition, fructose may zap your body’s reserves of chromium, a mineral important for healthy levels of cholesterol, insulin, and blood sugar.

To spot fructose on a food label, look for the words “corn sweetener,” “corn syrup,” or “corn syrup solids” as well as “high-fructose corn syrup.”

The History Of The Enema

Its Unique History & Amazing Detox Properties…

Part One: The Coffee Enema

An enema is “a fluid injected into the rectum for the purpose of clearing out the bowel, or of administering drugs or food.”  The word itself comes from the Greek “en-hienai,” meaning to “send or inject into.”  The enema has been called “one of the oldest medical procedures still used today.”  Tribal women in Africa, and elsewhere, routinely use it on their children.  The earliest medical text in existence, the Egyptian Ebers Papyrus, from 1500 B.C., mentions it.  Millennia before, the Pharaoh had a “guardian of the anus,” a special doctor, one of whose purposes was to administer the royal enema.

The Greeks wrote of the fabled cleanliness of the Egyptians, which included the internal cleansing of their systems through emetics and enemas.  They employed these on 3 consecutive days a month said Herodotus (II.77) or at intervals of 3 or 4 days, according to a later historian Diodorus.  The Egyptians explained to their visitors that they did this because they “believed that diseases were engendered by superfluities of the food,” a modern-sounding theory! 

Enemas were known in ancient Sumeria, Babylonia, India, Greece, and China.  American Indians independently invented it, using a syringe made of an animal bladder and a hollow leg bone.  Pre-Columbian South Americans fashioned latex into the first rubber enema bags and tubes.  In fact, there is hardly a region of the world where people did not discover or adapt the enema.  It is more ubiquitous than the wheel.  Enemas are found in world literature from Aristophanes to Shakespeare, Gulliver Travels to Peyton Place.

In pre-revolutionary France, a daily enema after dinner was de rigueur.  It was not only considered indispensable for health but also practiced for good complexion as well.  Louis XIV is said to have taken over 2,000 in his lifetime.  Could this have been the source of the Sun King’s sunny disposition?  For centuries, enemas were a routine home remedy.  In recent times, the routine use of enemas died out.  The main times that doctors employ them nowadays are before and after surgery and childbirth.  Difficult and potentially dangerous barium enemas before colonic X-rays are of course still a favorite among allopathic doctors. 

The coffee bean has an interesting history.  It was imported in Arabia in the early 1500’s by the Sufi religious mystics, who used it to fight drowsiness while praying.  It was especially prized for its medicinal qualities, in both the Near East and Europe.  No one knows when the first daring soul filled an enema bag with a quart of java.  What is known is that the coffee enema appeared at least as early as 1917 and was found in the prestigious Merck Manual until 1972.  In the 1920’s, German scientists found that a caffeine solution could open the bile ducts and stimulate the production of bile in the liver of experimental animals. 

Dr. Max Gerson used this clinically as part of a general detoxification regimen, first for tuberculosis, then cancer.  Caffeine, he postulated, will travel up the hemorrhoidal to the portal vein and then to the liver.  Gerson noted some remarkable effects of this procedure.  For instance, patients did not need their usually prescribed painkillers once on the enemas.  Many people have noted the paradoxical calming effect of coffee enemas.  And while coffee enemas can relieve constipation, Gerson cautioned:  “Patients have to know that the coffee enemas are not given for the function of the intestines but for the stimulation of the liver.” 

Coffee enemas were an established part of medical practice when Dr. Max Gerson introduced them into cancer therapy in the 1930s.  Basing himself on German laboratory work, Gerson believed that caffeine could stimulate the liver and gall bladder to discharge bile.  He felt this process could contribute to the health of the cancer patient. 

Although the coffee enema has been heaped with scorn, there has been some independent scientific work that gives credence to the value of the coffee enema.  In 1981, for example, Dr. Lee Wattenberg and his colleagues were soon able to show that substances found in coffee, kahweol and cafestol palimate, promote the activity of a key enzyme system, glutathione S-transferase, above its normal activity.  This system detoxifies a vast array of electrophiles from the bloodstream and, according to Gar Hildenbrand of the Gerson Institute, “must be regarded as an important mechanism for carcinogen detoxification.”  This enzyme group is responsible for neutralizing free radicals, harmful chemicals now commonly implicated in the initiation of cancer.  In mice, for example, these systems are enhanced 600% in the liver and 700% in the bowel when coffee beans are added to the mice’s diet. 

Dr. Peter Lechner, who is investigating the Gerson method at the Ladneskrankenhaus of Graz, Austria, has reported that “coffee enemas have a definite effect on the colon which can be observed with an endoscope.”  F.W. Cope (1977) has postulated the existence of a “tissue damage syndrome.”  When cells are challenged by a poison, oxygen deprivation, malnutrition or a physical trauma they lose potassium, take on sodium and chloride, and swell up with excess water.  Another scientist (Ling) has suggested that water in a normal cell is contained in a crystalline structure.  Being alive requires not just the right chemicals, but also the right chemical structure.  Cells normally have a preference for potassium over sodium, but when a cell is damaged it begins to prefer sodium.  This craving results in a damaged ability of cells to repair themselves and to utilize energy.  Further, damaged cells produce toxins; around tumors there are zones of “wounded” but still non-malignant tissue, swollen with salt and water. 

Gerson believed it axiomatic that cancer could not exist in normal metabolism.  He pointed to the fact that scientists often had to damage an animal’s thyroid and adrenals just to get a transplanted tumor to “take.”  He directed his efforts toward creating normal metabolism in the tissue surrounding a tumor. 

It is the liver and small bowel that neutralize the most common tissue toxins: polyamines, ammonia, toxic-bound nitrogen and electrophiles.  These detoxification systems are enhanced by the coffee enema.  Physiological chemistry and physics has stated “caffeine enemas cause dilation of bile ducts, which facilitates excretion of toxic cancer breakdown products by the liver and dialysis of toxic products across the colonic wall.” 

In addition, theophylline and theobromine, two other chemicals in coffee, dilate blood vessels and counter inflammation of the gut; the palimates enhance the enzyme system responsible for the removal of toxic free radicals from the serum; and the fluid of the enema then stimulates the visceral nervous system to promote peristalsis and the transit of diluted toxic bile from the duodenum and out of the rectum. 

Since the enema is generally held for 15 minutes, and all the blood passes through the liver, the palimates enhance the enzyme system responsible for the removal of toxic free radicals from the serum; and the fluid of the enema then stimulates the visceral nervous system to promote peristalsis and the transit of diluted toxic bile from the duodenum and out of the rectum.  Furthermore, since all the blood passes through the liver every three minutes, “these enemas represent a form of dialysis of the blood across the gut wall.”  The research by Sherry Rodgers, MD author of Detox or Die, suggests that there is no stimulatory effect of the adrenals from a coffee enema.  The personal experience of Gabriel Cousens, MD supports her findings.

Our next article will cover the benefits of wheatgrass and intestonal health. Here at Creative Health Institute we do not teach how to prepare coffee enema’s nor do we discus the benefits of coffee enema’s, though we do acknowledged the benefits derived from this method of bowel and body detoxification. Our focus at CHI is teaching about water based enema’s which contain electrolites and probiotics. This cleansing system incorporates  wheatgrass implants as part of the full body cleanse.

Whishing everyone their healthiest day ever!
