Maybe its time to get back to basics.
“Let me share my vision with you: I see a world without sickness, sorrow or mental disturbance in which we are living in perfect balance with abundant health and harmony. Reconnect with nature and your body will take care of the rest. This is the beauty of self-healing.”
-Dr. Ann Wigmore
“Energy soup is the easiest, healthiest and quickest meal on earth!” Dr. Ann Wigmore
You can add additional ingredients to suit your taste. Like pepper, cayenne, garlic, cashew cream and sea salt. If you don’t have sunflower and buckwheat sprouts, use any other sprouted greens, spinach or other leafy greens.
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
“Until man duplicates a blade of grass, Nature can laugh at his so-called scientific knowledge.” – Thomas A. Edison
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.
Finely chop cabbage, saving outside leaves. Chop carrots and onion. Place vegetables into a large bowl or crock-pot. Mix in optional seasonings. Cover the top outside with cabbage leaves. Place large plate and weight on top (we use a large stone). Press down to remove air from Kraut. Leave at room temperature for 3 days or until it is sour enough for your taste. Place the Kraut in a glass jar with a lid and refrigerate. It will keep up to for several weeks. Eat a ½ cup serving a day with meals and enjoy the wonderful flavor and nutritional benefits of this wonderful food! Another zero fat, healthy bacteria, non-fruit recipe to give you amazing health!

There are more than 20 species of Candida, the most common being Candida albicans. These fungi live on all surfaces of our bodies. Candida yeast grows naturally in the gut, however, when this yeast multiplies out of control it can unbalance your whole system, creating an acidic environment where yeast over-growth and bad bacteria can thrive. Over time this imbalance in the intestinal flora lowers the immune system, leaving the us open to sickness and disease…

Wishing Everyone The Best Of Health
Bobby – Robert Morgan is the Health Education Director at CHI
Dr. Ann Wigmore taught us, poor diet is the beginning of poor digestion, which creates nutritional deficiencies thus slowing the body’s digestive processes, creating internal fermentation, inflammation, free radicals, an over abundance of mucus, all of which when combined create toxic residues which are absorbed into the bloodstream, causing self-toxification.
We must have live enzymes to begin the digestive process. Some of them will be supplied by our bodies systems, while others will be provided by eating raw living foods.
Our bodies must have ‘friendly’ intestinal bacteria, which is supported by our eating a complex carbohydrate diet which also contains fermented foods.
We must eat properly combined meals which include adequate amounts of natural fiber. When we do this we are able to give our body’s what they need to keep our stomachs choleric acid at the proper level, insure our small intestine is more alkaline than acidic and our large intestines pH is neutral.
Loving yourself and being willing to serve others as we would wish to be served, helps us to more easily eliminate the physical and emotional toxins that keep us from being able to eliminate that which does not serve us.
When we follow the four principals, we have created a solid health foundation and we can feel confident that we will be able to prevent many of the health challenges that are associated with the standard American diet. Remember the lifestyle program that has worked for you while at CHI will also work for you the rest of your life, all you need to do is make your health your number one priority and you will be able to serve yourself and those you love at the highest level possible.
