Proper Methods of Storing and Handling Seeds for Sprouting and Growing Microgreen Superfoods

Click Here To Read The Article

When we store seeds in the proper manner we ensure their ability to germinate and sprout. Treating seeds with reverence will bring about maximum absorption of their nutrients when we eat them.

Growing your own super-foods, cost only pennies. They are hard to kill off, easy to sprout, and you have the assurance you are getting a safe, clean, and highly nutritious product.

Juices That May Help Accelerate The Healing Of Broken Bones

Kelli Vaccarelli, who is a guest teacher and alternative health advocate, asked me to speak on different types of juice that would help with bone healing. Since I believe in nutritious foods strengthen and heal our bodies and yes even mend broken bones.  The first thing I recommend for helping to heal broken bones  is juices, energy soups and smoothies made with wheat grass, dark leafy green vegetables, sprouted seeds, grains, nuts (nut milk) of course wild edibles, like comfrey and lambs quarters.

All of the aforementined foods, especially any food you have sprouted are nutritional powerhouses and should always be a part of your bone mending program.  All of them are loaded with iron, calcium, potassium, and magnesium, these minerals are proven bone healers. We can’t forget about the vitamins and phytonutrients, especially C, E, K, many of the B vitamins, beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin.  

My favorite green plant is wild comfrey, it has so many amazing medicinal uses. For thousands of years mankind has juiced, made tea and drank comfrey, for many good reasons.

In the case of helping a broken bone to heal it would be my personal first choice.  It has proven to accelerate healing and strengthen broken bones. Unfortunately I would be breaking the law if I told you to juice it or make tea with it, as a resent law has been handed down and it’s no longer legal to ingest comfrey. There is another way to get the benefit of this wonder green and that it to make a poultice with it and apply it over the break. I have also heard that some homeopaths have a tincture that is made from comfrey and they are able to bypass the legal issues of consuming comfrey. I will need to do more research on this one.

Another mineral laden food is sea vegetables and you should try to add them all of your juices. Here at CHI we make sure we have at least 3 teaspoons of these super foods every day. You can blend them in to any juice; I also suggest sprinkling ground sea vegetables, because of their salty taste, on to raw soups, veggies and salads.

What other foods could be used to make up the bone healing juice?

 When you make the bone healing juice, don’t forget to fortify it with seed and/or nut milks. The milks will help speed the mending of broken bones. Make sure all of your nuts and seeds are RAW, organic, soaked and sprouted.  Soaking and sprouting your nuts, seeds, and grains brings out the optimum level of nutrition. My favorite for healing broken bones is sesame milk.

Another thing is, don’t forget to blend in at least a small clove of garlic it will fortify the juice and help reduce inflammation and protect the broken bone from infection.

Kelly, there are dozens of great foods you can juice,  that will help your friend accelerate the healing of the broken bone. Below is a list of some of the ones I would include as long as I remembered to always include the leafy green vegetable-plant and sprouts as the base.

  • Apples
  • Broccoli
  • Carrots
  • Sweet potatoes
  • All Squash
  • Oatmeal- make in to a milk and add to juice
  • Grapes, especially red grapes
  • Grapefruit, especially pink
  • Raw Honey
  • Sprouted Garbanzos
  • Tomato

Kelly, I wish you the happiest new year ever and and hope and pray your friend heals quickly.

As Always,

Bobby

About Candidasis

 

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…. In addition, the presence of heavy metals in a person with Candida can mean that even when they are on a strict anti-candida diet the yeast may not be brought under control. After more thant 2 years of research, CHI’s Candida detox and rebuild program has been carefully designed to target the problem by seeking to eliminate the yeast overgrowth on a permanent basis. Sending everyone love peace and health, Bobby

Glass or Plastic? What Is Your Water Bottle Made Of?

Glass or Plastic?

Due to the low cost of manufacturing and shipping, plastic containers are the primary choice of the bottled water industry, which in their thinking keeps the price down for the consumer. The problem with this is that scientists are finding that it not such a good deal for us because the hidden cost may be our health.

Studies have shown that chemicals called phthalates, which are known to disrupt testosterone and other hormones, can leach into bottled water over time. One study found that water that had been stored for 10 weeks in plastic contained phthalates, suggesting that the chemicals could be coming from the plastic bottle or even the cap. Although there are regulatory standards limiting phthalates in tap water, there are no legal limits for phthalates in bottled water — the bottled water industry waged a successful campaign opposing the FDA proposal to set a legal limit for these chemicals!

 Plastic Recycling Codes

The following plastics are considered safest for water and food storage. Check all your plastic containers to make sure these symbols and the numbers 1,2,4 and 5 are on them. If these symbols and number are not present on plastic container or bottle, or you see another symbol and/or number do not drink or eat anything from this container.

Though the following numbers represent the safest plastics, this does not mean we have a complete understanding of all the possible health hazards plastics may present. So, the best practice would be to not drink from plastic bottles or store items in plastic, and never heat water or food items in them. Remember clean glass containers are always the best option.

 Polyethylene terephthalate ethylene (PETE), code 1.

 High-density polyethylene (HDPE), code 2.

 Low-density polyethylene (LDPE), code 4.

 Polypropylene (PP), code 5.

 ALWAYS AVOID ANY PLASTIC WITH THESE CODES

 CODE (3) Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) leach phthalates which cause major problems with hormones and are toxic to them male reproductive system. It can be marked by code 3. If a water bottle, plastic wrap, shampoo container, cooking oil container, blood bag or meat wrapping has this mark or number or is not marked at all find a new brand!

CODE (6) –  Polystyrene is used in Styrofoam products. It leaches styrene (a neurotoxin) when it comes into contact with hot, acidic, or fatty foods. This cup is used being used by many fast food and coffee shops to serve hot drinks in.  What you may have thought was a caffeine buzz, was the neurotoxins being released into you coffee or tea.  This chemical is also found in the most medicine and vitamin bottles, WOW, plastic cutlery, foam packaging and the cartons you may be get your eggs in.  It’s marked with recycling code 6.

CODE (7) – Polycarbonate containers leach bisphenol-A (BPA), an endocrine disruptor associated with a long list of health concerns, including obesity. Baby bottles, “sippy” cups, ketchup bottles, syrups, window cleaners, 5-gallon water cooler bottles, reusable water jugs, and reusable beverage bottles are typically made out of this plastic. Products may be marked with recycling code 7 and/or the letters “PC.” It’s important to note some containers that aren’t made from polycarbonate may also be marked with a code 7 because the category also includes any plastic that doesn’t fit into the 1 to 6 recycling code categories.  

May your life be blessed with health, peace and love.

Did You Know That 400 Different Grasses Are Edible?

 

Bobby’s Daily Health Factoid: Did you know that there are more than 400 varieties of edible grasses? Did you know that all 400 these grasses have amazing healing properties? Most scientists believe grasses where the first plant life to take root in earth’s soil. At CHI we drink the king of all the grasses, wheatgrass. It’s the mainstay of our program and our students and guests drinks 3-6 ounces a day. We even take baths in it… Blessings

Raw Food Smoothie Immune Rejuvenation Diet

Based on Teachings of Dr. Wu, not Yu

By Simon Yu, MD

Dr. Tom Wu was giving a lecture on “Conquering Cancer With Simple Foods” while I was at the American Naturopathic Medical Association Convention. I was there to investigate this Naturopathic physician’s philosophy. I found his personal history and his lecture compelling. Permit me to share his teaching with you.

Dr. Tom Wu was trained as a pathologist inFrance. At one point in his life he developed lung cancer. He went through traditional western based medical therapy without success. He then decided to look for alternative natural healing methods. He eventually became a Naturopathic Medical Doctor. He is over 70 years old which you would never guess by his vibrant energy.

He strongly credits smoothies as part of his healing process. For these, you need a powerful “three horse power” blender (e.g. VitaMix.com) to cleave out and free the natural phytochemicals locked into the fibers of fruits and vegetables.

The juicing process won’t work for this purpose. It may provide the vitamins, enzymes, and minerals. However, it wastes a majority of the phytochemicals locked in the fibers. These phytochemicals have potent anti-aging and immune rejuvenating properties.

To start the smoothies, use ripe organic tomatoes, carrots, beets, and asparagus as your basic ingredients. There are over 500 different phytochemical nutrients that have been isolated from tomatoes and carrots alone.

Then, add spices and herbs using cilantro, parsley, ginger, turmeric, and cinnamon powder. If you cannot get turmeric, use curry powder as a substitute.

To enhance the taste, add sour fruits, especially blueberry, blackberry, or any seasonally available berries. Add Kiwi which should be peeled. You may add 1-2 cups of distilled or filtered water. (Alternatively, not as part of Dr. Wu’s teaching, I would offer that you could substitute juices of your choice like acai, apple, apple cider vinegar, cranberry, grape, goji, noni, or xango).

After blending the above fruits and vegetables thoroughly, add bee pollen, sea salt, and lecithin granules.

(I prefer not to add soy based lecithin but rather that you eat raw eggs as a substitute for lecithin.) Do not refrigerate the smoothie.

It is important not to drink the smoothie but chew the smoothie. You need to consume about a quart (32oz) of the smoothie throughout the day. By the end of the day, the smoothie will have gone through a fermentation process with a change in color and smell. However, it is just fine for you to still consume it.

Dr. Wu’s healing plan also includes a salad with sprouted alfalfa and sprouted beans. However, the “magic of healing” won’t happen if you aren’t including this smoothie once a day. It may take at least 3 – 4 months for the transformation of your body to heal

I recommend you try Dr. Tom Wu’s Raw Food Smoothie as part of a complete healing program. If you are allergic to any of the ingredients, you must eliminate them. I do recommend food allergy testing prior to starting the program.

You may add additional nuts, seeds, fruits, and vegetables based on individual conditions. Flax seeds for omega-3 essential fatty acids for all illnesses; garlic for infections; broccoli, cauliflower, and brazil nuts for their anti-cancer properties; bitter melon, Swiss Chard, and extra cinnamon for diabetes; pumpkin seeds for prostate problems; pomegranate with its seeds and black sesame seeds for women’s’ health; and celery for hypertension.

A Fruits and Vegetables Smoothie Diet is not a new idea. However, when I hear directly from a physician who cured his incurable lung cancer with simple foods, and listen to his conviction in his teaching, it has an “infectious” motivating effect on me to spread this old, new idea. After his lecture, I dusted off my Vita-Mix blender which has been idle for the last few years, and started his recommended smoothies.

Every day, my wife, Kate, and I make a smoothie which turns out slightly different in texture and taste each time. If you can continue this “Raw Food Immune Rejuvenation Smoothie Diet”, you may not need as many vitamins and minerals as I’ve been recommending to my patients.

If you are suffering from any chronic illness, it’s worthwhile to experiment with this diet that is based on Dr. Tom Wu, not Yu. You may contact him, Tom Wu, N.M.D., Ph.D. atWellnessSelfcareCenter, 831

Creative Health Institutes Take On Proper Seed Storage

 

As raw living foodest practicing, Dr. Ann Wigmore’s Living Food Lifestyle, we depended on sprouted seeds, to provide us with a host of powerful live enzymes, vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. We have found the best way to insure we have the best seeds is to grow and store our own, for future use. This is not always possible and so we still get the majority of our seeds from vendors.

If you are going to purchase seeds make sure the seeds have been carefully dried under proper conditions, before you use them, or store them for later use. Proper storing of your seeds will give them the best chance of germinating and giving you the highest quality sprouts and micro-greens. The great thing is storing seeds is easy to accomplish.

At Creative Health Institute we do not have the facilities to freeze or refrigerate our seeds, but luckily we use them so quickly we do not have the need to freeze or refrigerate them.

Our basic storage rule is to keep our seeds in a cool, dry, dark place where the temperature is between 55 and 70 degrees and the humidity is less then 70%. The lower the humidity, the better.

Most of you will be able to freeze or refrigerate your seeds. Freezing them will at least quadruple the life of your seeds and refrigerating them doubles their life.

With more than 39 years of experience we have a pretty good understanding of different seeds shelf lives.  I have designed the following chart that should provide you with a conservative estimate of the life of seeds that have been properly dried. Since we do not have the room for refrigerators and freezer your storage time could be from 2 to 4 times longer. If you have more questions, feel free to call Bobby as 866.426.1213.

Creative Health Institute Interns Make Life Better For Others

 

WHAT IS THE FIRST THING SOMEONE SHOULD DO IF THEY HAVE CANCER?

SIMPLE – THEY SHOULD EAT A TOTALLY RAW ORGANIC LIVE FOOD DIET!
In my opinion, only raw organic living food has the enzymes, vitamins, phytonutrients and minerals intact.  If you want to get the nourishment you need to survive cancer eating organic raw live foods and only organic raw live foods, while you have cancer will provide your body with the energy it needs to create clean healthy cells, destroy the cancer cells and replace them with new healthy cells.  I believe you can push cancer into remission, ultimately destroy it and live a cancer free life.

Eating only organic raw fruits, vegetables, fermented food, nuts, seed and sprouted grains will give you the best chance of not only surviving the cancer, but will also enable you to strengthen your immune system and put a stop to any other sicknesses or diseases that may have gained ground in your body.

When I say you need to eat a organic raw living food diet it mean just that. That  means you must completely stop doing what you have been doing and to not eat any cooked food – Zero-Zilch-Nada – NOTHING COOKED!

Destroying cancer cells is serious business and if you are going to survive and have a healthy long life, you must be able to stop eating cooked foods and do what other people will not do! Think about it… Chemotherapy, radiation, hospitals, drugs, vomiting, diarrhea, headaches, body aches, baldness, absolute exhaustion, immune system torn own, being sick every day, financial ruin, etc. OR choose to simply eat organic living foods that provide your body with everything it needs to heal itself.

All of our guests at Creative Health Institute (CHI) eat only 100% organic, nutrient dense, raw living foods which are properly combined and easily assimilated. Dead food is never served and because we adhere to the living food principal taught by Dr. Ann Wigmore we always make sure that every meal is enriched with sprouted foods.

 If you or a loved one is suffering from any disease, or sickness consider going on a 100% raw organic living food diet, until the sickness or disease has be alleviated. I spend time with 100’s of sick people every month and with most I see what many people would consider miracles as these individuals take charge of their own health and bring about their own healings, by simply using raw organic living foods as the basis for their turnarounds.

Since 1973 Creative Health Institute has taught more then 19,000 people how to take charge of their health and to overcome sickness and disease through by living a raw food lifestyle.

Wishing everyone the greatest of health and happiness,

Healing Disease – Creative Health Institute (CHI) Approved Video Interview

 Dr. Gary Tunsky, Healing Disease- Part 1

http://youtu.be/rbkz9dPOftM

My Toughts About Cellular Malfunction

Here is something to think about… Could all diseases and sicknesses be based in cellular malfunction? I have listed 10 reasons that I feel lend some credence to this train of thought.

Dr Ann Wigmore taught us that all disease is based in deficiency and toxicity. If this is true then it makes sense the first thing to suffer the effects of deficiency and toxicity would be our cells. What do you think; Could the detox rebuild program that we do here at Creative Health Institute (CHI) that includes wheat grass, living foods, rejuvelac, fermented foods, pure alkaline water, fresh clean air, proper rest at the right time, exercise and a positive-loving mental attitude change how a cell replicates and presents itself in our bodies?  

1. There are 243 different types of cells that come in all shapes and sizes.
2. They are the bricks and mortar from which all living tissue and organs and systems are made.
3. Your body (tissue, organs and systems) is made up of more than 75 trillion of these cells.
4. You (spirit-brain) is given sole responsibility for every one of these 75 trillion plus cells health and welfare.
5. You have the greatest of responsibilities, as only you can guarantee the health and safety of every cell.
6. When you take charge of the situation, by providing proper guidance and direction every cell will answer to your commands.
7. Every second 10’s of millions of cells are reborn, creating amino acids, vitamins, hormones, neurotransmitters, enzymes and adenosinetriphosphate (ATP – cellular energy), all await your direction.
8. An almost endless army of cellular workers along with the bricks and mortar you will ever need to self generate a healthy body are under your command.
9. So, a strong healthy body can only originate at the cellular level and must be given the proper information and substance to do so.
10. So, a sick and diseased body can only originate at the cellular level and must be given improper information and harmful substance to do so.

Wishing you and your family the best year ever.

Creative Health Institue Reports – Cancer Prevention by Chlorophylls

The following study performed byMichael T. Simonich, Ph.D., gives us some insight as to why Dr. Ann Wigmore felt so sure that eating a plant based diet would have a positive effect in helping the body protects itself from many diseases including cancer. Our guests, at Creative Health Institute, are taught how to create recipes and design menus that really raise their intake of food containing substantial amounts of chlorophyll. On the daily menu is wheatgrass (wheat grass), energy soups and an abundance of sprouts and micro-greens. If you would like more information about our training programs and schedules, contact the office at 866.426.1213.

 Cancer Prevention by Chlorophylls

Michael T. Simonich, Ph.D.
LPI Research Associate

Numerous chemicals from fruits and vegetables protect against the damage wrought by carcinogens in experimental animal models. Usually these chemicals occur in edible plants at such low levels that doses sufficient for protection are not practically attained even in a balanced diet. Because of their abundance in green vegetables, chlorophyll and its widely used derivative, chlorophyllin, have attracted attention as potential anti-carcinogens. Scientists in our laboratory have studied the chemoprotective effects of chlorophyllin and have recently discovered that natural chlorophyll itself is a potent anticancer agent.

Chlorophyllin is easily and inexpensively made from crude chlorophyll and has been used for decades without known human toxicity as a food dye, a wound-healing accelerant, and for odor control. The anticancer properties of chlorophyllin have been extensively reported in dozens of studies from cell culture to rats, where different chemical carcinogens were used to initiate cancer. From these studies we have learned that chlorophyllin acts primarily as a blocking agent against chemical initiation of carcinogenesis. Simply put, chlorophyllin is most effective when administered along with the carcinogen, thereby blocking cancer-initiating activity. Molecular complexes formed between chlorophyllin and carcinogen molecules are physically too large to be absorbed from the gut. Because fewer carcinogen molecules reach the target organ, less DNA damage occurs, and the chance of tumor development is diminished. Consistent with the blocking mechanism, chlorophyllin is generally much less effective if administered after the carcinogen, i.e., once the carcinogen’s damage has been done.

Importantly, protection by chlorophyllin extends beyond a single chemical carcinogen to include aflatoxins from heavy fungal contamination of grain or nuts; heterocyclic amines, whose primary source of exposure is overcooked meat; and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), an increasingly abundant class of combustion-derived air pollutants. While aflatoxin B1 exposure is insignificant in developed countries with safe grain storage methods, it is prevalent in Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, where it contributes to astonishingly high rates of liver cancer. The latter two carcinogen classes represent significant exposures for the U.S. population, given high consumption of grilled meats and huge increases in airborne PAH-bound particulate matter, especially from diesel exhaust.

Significant protection against cancer by chlorophyllin was reported in the Fall/Winter 2002 LPI Research Newsletter (“Chlorophylls and Cancer Prevention: Passing the First Hurdle,” by Dr. George S. Bailey). That article summarized the results of a clinical trial of dietary chlorophyllin supplementation in a human population in eastern China with chronic, unavoidably high aflatoxin exposure and a high incidence of liver cancer. Administration of 100 mg of dietary chlorophyllin (in pill form) thrice daily led to a highly significant 55% reduction in the amount of aflatoxin-DNA adducts (substances connected by a chemical bond; in this case, indicative of DNA damage) in the urine of participants. Elevated urinary output of this hepatic DNA adduct biomarker in humans is clearly associated with increased risk of liver cancer, and diminished levels of aflatoxin-DNA adduct are associated with reduced liver cancer risk in several animal studies. Thus, simple dietary supplementation with chlorophyllin might cut human liver cancer risk in half for people chronically exposed to high levels of dietary aflatoxin. A long-term, 20-year clinical trial is now being conducted by Chinese investigators to evaluate the reduction of liver cancer incidence by chlorophyllin.

In impoverished regions, where diet choices are limited to survival staples and grain storage methods and pollution exposure will only improve with increases in the standard of living, dietary supplementation with chlorophyllin might be the easiest and most effective protection strategy to implement. In the developed world, a diet high in natural chlorophyll from vegetable consumption could offer substantial protection against food- and air-borne carcinogens, in addition to all the other known benefits of a vegetable-rich diet.

Dietary chlorophyll intake comparable to the 300 mg per day of chlorophyllin administered in the Chinese human intervention trial is obtainable by moderate-to-high consumption of green vegetables. Chlorophyll has no known human toxicity, but its protective properties have been little studied. This is likely due to the extraordinary cost of commercially pure chlorophyll (necessary for unambiguous experimental evaluation), or the difficulty and expense of purification in the laboratory.

Chlorophyll is potently anti-mutagenic and was recently shown to induce carcinogendetoxifying enzymes of phase 2 metabolism in cell cultures. A few studies have examined natural chlorophyll as a cancer preventative in animals. In rainbow trout, exposure to 200 parts per million (ppm) of dibenzo[a,l]pyrene (the most carcinogenic PAH known) resulted in hepatic DNA-adduct formation. Adduct formation was reduced 66% by co-exposure to 3000 ppm chlorophyll in the diet, which was nearly identical to the protection we observed by a similar dietary co-exposure to chlorophyllin. Another lab reported that dietary spinach or an equivalent dose of chlorophyll equally inhibited the proliferation of colon cells in rats induced by heme, an ironcontaining pro-oxidant from red meat that is correlated with increased risk of colon cancer. The chlorophyll-containing diets also largely blocked formation of a toxic heme metabolite. The authors speculated that green vegetables may decrease colon cancer risk from dietary heme through the protective effects of chlorophyll.

Our lab’s current research is focused on the rigorous testing of cancer prevention by natural chlorophyll in trout and rats. We recently examined protection by dietary chlorophyll in a rainbow trout multi-organ tumor model. Duplicate groups of 140 juvenile trout were exposed via the diet for four weeks to 224 ppm dibenzo[a,l]pyrene (DBP) alone, or with 1000, 2000, 4000, or 6000 ppm chlorophyll, then returned to the control diet. DBP induced high tumor incidence (number of fish with at least one tumor in each treatment group) in the liver (51%) and stomach (56%), and a low incidence in swim bladder (10%) nine months after initiation. Co-feeding 2000, 4000, or 6000 ppm chlorophyll significantly reduced stomach tumor incidence to 29, 23, and 19%, respectively, and liver tumor incidence to 21, 28, and 26%, respectively. A troubling result from the study was that dietary chlorophyllin given after carcinogen exposure (DBP diet, followed by 2000 ppm chlorophyllin for the duration of the study) had no effect on liver or stomach tumor response but promoted swimbladder tumor incidence to 38%. This finding supports previous evidence that chlorophyllin chemoprevention is not without some potential risk. Post-initiation promotion by chlorophyllin has previously been reported in the rat colon in specific experimental designs. However, in the one study where postinitiation effects of natural chlorophyll on colon carcinogenesis were examined, chlorophyll suppressed rather than promoted pre-cancerous lesions of the rat colon. The available evidence from previous studies and our recent finding in trout suggest that natural chlorophyll may be superior to chlorophyllin as a choice for chemoprevention in humans.

Our finding that chlorophyll substantially reduced tumor formation in trout compelled us to look for similar protection by chlorophyll in rats. We first studied protection against early biomarkers of carcinogenesis. Three groups of seven rats each received five daily doses of 250 ppb aflatoxin B1 alone, aflatoxin with 250 ppm chlorophyllin, or aflatoxin with natural chlorophyll equivalent to 250 ppm chlorophyllin. The aflatoxin was attached to a radioactive isotope, or radiolabeled, so that we could follow and measure it. Chlorophyllin and chlorophyll strongly reduced liver DNA adduction by 42% and 55%, respectively, and serum albumin adducts by 65% and 71%, respectively. The feces of chlorophyllin- and chlorophyll-treated rats contained 137% and 412% more radiolabel, respectively, than control (aflatoxin only) feces, indicating that chlorophyllin and chlorophyll inhibited aflatoxin uptake from the gut, restricting its distribution to the GI tract. This finding is consistent with chlorophyllin acting as a blocking agent, i.e., by binding the carcinogen and blocking its uptake to the bloodstream. A similar result for chlorophyll suggests that it, too, may protect by this mechanism. We examined whether chlorophyllin and chlorophyll protection might also occur at the metabolic level, after uptake from the gut. Chlorophyllin and chlorophyll were both recently shown by some of our collaborators to induce higher activity levels of the carcinogen-detoxifying enzymes of phase 2 metabolism in cell cultures. However, in the rat liver, neither co-treatment induced activity of the phase 2 enzymes quinone reductase and glutathione S-transferase (GST) above control levels.

A second study was done to examine the protection against late pathophysiological markers in the rat liver and colon. We specifically examined the effect of chlorophyllin and chlorophyll co-treatment on GST-placental form positive staining foci in the liver and aberrant crypt foci in the colon. Both foci types are small populations of cells that have undergone a hyperplastic transformation and, while not yet cancerous, will often become so. Twenty-nine rats in three experimental groups were treated with chlorophyll or chlorophyllin for ten days. At 18 weeks after carcinogen exposure, the chlorophyllin and chlorophyll co-treatments had reduced the percentage of GST-placental form positive foci in the liver by 74% and 77%, respectively, compared to control livers. Chlorophyllin and chlorophyll reduced the mean number of aberrant crypt foci per colon by 63% and 75%, respectively.

Our results show that both chlorophyllin and chlorophyll protect against early biochemical and late pathophysiological biomarkers of aflatoxin carcinogenesis in the rat liver and colon, and against PAH-initiated cancer in the rainbow trout. These studies provide the first demonstration in any animal model of cancer chemoprotection by dietary natural chlorophyll, which may be a less problematic choice for human intervention than its derivative chlorophyllin. While our results are entirely consistent with chlorophyll acting as a blocking agent like chlorophyllin, further experiments are needed to determine the precise inhibitory mechanism by chlorophyll of aflatoxin and dibenzo[a,l]pyrene uptake. The results also support the idea that increased consumption of vegetables with high chlorophyll content may substantially lower cancer rates among human populations at high risk from exposure to aflatoxin and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.

CHI DETOX – Family Style

Jimmy Ehrhart, 15


Jessica Ehrhart, 12

Standing in front of a small group of Creative Health Institute guests with a Sharpie in hand and a smile on his face, Jimmy Ehrhart, 15, recorded numbers on a large pad of paper propped upon an easel.

“I feel great right now,” Jimmy told the other guests who were going through a 10-day detox with him. It was the beginning of Day 8 and relief had come for Jimmy and others who had experienced the typical uncomfortable symptoms people have when they withdraw from sugar, caffeine, high-protein and high-fat foods.  “I feel better than I have ever felt—honestly.”

The Camden, Michigan, teen was front-and-center for the morning and happy about the progress everybody was making  with the detox. Jimmy came to CHI with his younger sister, older brother, mother and grandfather. All of them wanted to make significant changes to their diets and health. They decided to go raw after reading books such as Victoria Boutenko’s Raw Family and watching videos including Thirty Days Raw.  Now that their detox at CHI is nearly complete, the family agrees visiting our nutritional education center in Hodunk, Michigan,  has been one of the the best things they’ve ever done together.

Jessica Ehrhart, 12, said she plans to spread the word about the great time she’s had with her family and new friends at  Creative Health Institute.

“I would like to see lots of families come here. I wish everyone in the world could do it because then everyone would just be healthy,” Jessica said. “Fast foods are gross!”

After seeing the videos and reading the books his mother exposed the family to in preparation of their detox, Jimmy still was a bit skeptical about how much a raw food diet could affect him. He was willing to give raw living foods a try because he had some health concerns and wanted to see what a difference the Ann Wigmore way of life could make. Jimmy said for several years he has suffered from asthma, allergies, trouble sleeping, snoring and being overweight.  It’s been tough for him to join the fun and games kids his age typically enjoy.

“I couldn’t play sports.  My friends, they all try to run around town and I have a hard time keeping up to them with the asthma, ” Jimmy said. “It is embarrassing to stay over a friend’s house because I snore so loud.”

Now Jimmy feels a new hope and expects he’ll be able to participate more fully in teenage activities he sees others enjoy.  His snoring stopped right away. He’s been sleeping well every night and his asthma hasn’t been bothering him at all.  He’s been exercising every day and says he feels hopeful that he’ll be able to keep up with his friends in basketball, football and baseball. He has always tried to participate in sports but due to his health issues he has spent most of his time on the bench.

Jimmy also had a problem with food allergies.  He said he especially seemed to be allergic to nuts, particularly cashews. At CHI he has found he can eat all different kinds of nuts without any allergic reaction. He said he believes it’s because he had been eating nuts that were not organic and all of the food at the center is organic.  He said he was really happy to learn that eating a raw food diet doesn’t mean a life-sentence of “boring salads.” He was especially impressed with a raw cashew-cheese-based blueberry cheesecake an intern made one night for a CHI guest who was celebrating her birthday during the detox.

Jessica said all along she was excited to come to the Creative Health Institute with her family. She said she knew she needed to make some changes in her life and she was ready to move forward.

“I would like to improve my asthma and coming here definitely helped it,” she said. “I was always on the couch. I couldn’t breathe so I always had to have an inhaler wherever I went. It is really horrible.”

Jessica hasn’t had to use her inhaler once during the 10-day detox.  On day eight she reported feeling better than she has felt in a very long time. She said she has “tons” of energy and now she can breath without wheezing — something she hasn’t been able to do since she was a small child.

One of Jessica’s favorite things about the 10-day detox at CHI has been the cooking lessons. Jessica helped make marinara sauce to serve at dinner one night and she said she was surprised by how simple and tasty it was. She also has enjoyed rebounding (jumping on a miniature trampoline) in the morning and sitting in the banya (our Russian-style sauna). She said she really wants to come back for the raw chef classes to learn how to make gourmet raw living foods.

Jimmy and Jessica’s mother, Kimberly Ehrhart, said she’s very happy her family came to CHI together to detox with raw living food. She’s eager for her next visit and suggesting to staff that she’d like to see a CHI reunion for guests in the summer.

“I would highly suggest the 10-day detox,” Kimberly said.  “It’s more than cleansing for your body and mind, and it’s more than just new relationships — it’s family.”

How Does Wheatgrass Work?

Many of you have asked for more information on the components of wheatgrass and how it works. This is a quick overview of what we discussed in our  wheatgrass familiarization class. I hope these charts will help you to better understand the wonder of wheatgrass and have a better knowledge of how and why it works to heal, balance and restore our bodies. 

Love and blessings,

Bobby

WHAT IS WHEATGRASS?

  • Wheatgrass is actually a vegetable not a grain. It is considered a cereal grass along with barley, alfalfa, etc.
  • The grass is cut and harvested when it is approximately seven inches tall.
  • One of the numerous good things about wheatgrass is that it does not contain the gluten that is in the grain.

Wheatgrass is a complete food made up of:

  • 12.0%    water
  • 70.0%    chlorophyll bonded carbohydrates
  • 12.0%    protein
  •  2.0%     fat
  •  1.8%     minerals
  •  2.2%     crude fiber

In addition, it contains an impressive array of trace minerals, vitamins, amino acids (all eight essential ones), and enzymes.

MAIN DIFFERENCE IN WHEATGRASS AND OUR BLOOD

Chlorophyll is the blood of plants. Its makeup is almost ODidentical to that of hemoglobin in human blood. The only difference is that chlorophyll has magnesium as its central atom. The central atom of hemoglobin ( BLOOD)  is iron. 

Nobel Prize winner, Dr. Hans Fischer while doing research on red blood cells, discovered that chlorophyll is remarkably similar to human blood on the molecular level. When wheatgrass juice is taken internally, its chlorophyll is rapidly assimilated into the bloodstream due to its resemblance to hemoglobin. It enters the red blood cells and works to heal tissues, purify the liver, balance blood sugar, and flush out toxins. Chlorophyll stimulates the production of red blood cells in hemoglobin, which carries oxygen to the cells. Chlorophyll often returns red blood cell counts to normal within four to five days. 

Chlorophyll / Oxygen / Blood

Otto Warburg, a German biochemist, won a Nobel Prize for his study that revealed that cancer cells cannot exist in the presence of oxygen. 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.

Chlorophyll increases the function of the heart and affects the vascular system, the intestines, the uterus, and lungs. It helps in the stimulation and regeneration of the liver – the main organ of detoxification in the body.

   

The main difference between wheatgrass, and our blood:

 
     Blood  Central Atom  
   Plants  Chlorophyll  Magnesium  
   Humans  Hemoglobin  Iron  
 Major Components of Wheatgrass Utilized by the Human Body
 WATER  Involved with nearly all body processes
CARBOHYDRATES  Supply fuel
PROTEINS  Build and repair tissue
 FAT  Supplies energy
 MINERALS  Blood building and waste removal
 FIBER  Helps with good elimination
 CHLOROPHYLL  Protects / heals/ cleans/ builds blood / oxygenates (SUN ENERGY)
 ENZYMES  Workers who act as catalysts in many processes including digestion
 AMINO ACIDS  Building materials
 VITAMINS  Growth and development of cells
             

 

  Energizer  

How Does Wheatgrass Work

  • It is easily absorbed by the blood stream.
  • Less digestive work for the body means more energy and less sleep is required.
  • You will experience clarity of thought due to more oxygen reaching the brain.
 Appetite Depressant
  •  Wheatgrass is a complete food. As a result the appestat in the brain naturally shuts down the appetite.
 Digestive Aid
  •  Wheatgrass enzymes act as catalysts in the digestion of food and add valuable nutrients that are quickly absorbed into the blood stream.
 Fiber
  •  Wheatgrass provides fiber and chlorophyll, which helps to achieve and maintain colon health and regularity. We use the juice for rapid detoxification and rejuvenation.
 Minerals and Vitamins
  •  Wheatgrass has approximately 92 of the 102 known minerals found in the soil.
  • Wheatgrass, has thirteen essential vitamins and minerals, in addition to dozens of trace elements and enzymes.

Dehydrating – 8 Fun And Delicious Recipes

Here at Creative Health Institute we love to make great recipes in our dehydrators, but we always keep in mind that the majority of the food that Dr. Ann Wigmore believed we should be eating consists of sprouts, fresh leafy greens, fruits, vegetables, wild edibles and of course wheatgrass…

Basic Rules of Dehydrating

 

1. Choose fresh, high quality produce.

2. Produce should be carefully washed and prepared.

3. Remember to turn dehydrator no higher than 110 degrees as this is when damage to enzymes begin and at 120 degrees there are no living enzymes left.

4. Dry until food reaches desired consistency or doneness.

5. Store in a cool, dry, dark place and

6.  Some dried foods can be reconstituted (raisins, figs, other dried fruits and some vegetables) by soaking 5-6 hours or overnight. The soak water from fruits can be used to add sweetness to foods you are preparing.

7. Use dehydrated foods or reconstituted foods as snacks, in main dishes, cereals, salads or sauces.

8. Layer foods close but do not let touch

 Why Dehydrate?

 1. Nutritionally superior to dried foods that you would purchase from stores pr off the internet.  Much of the dehydrated food on the market have lower vitamin, mineral, enzyme and fiber content, due to being dried in high temperatures.

      1. No preservatives/chemicals are necessary.

2.  Flavor and color are maintained.

3.  Dried food keeps well.

4. Dried food uses less storage space.

5.  It is a perfect survival food.

6   Dried food is convenient and tasty.

7   Dehydrating food is an economically sound practice.

8. Takes advantage of bulk prices.

9.  Preserves oversupply of leftovers, produce, etc. (Use leftover energy soup as a

    base for crackers.)

10. Dry seasonal foods for off-season use.

 Dehydration Recipes

Food dehydration is a process of slowly heating foods at a low temperature so as not to destroy the enzymes and the nutrients. Food dehydrators come in a variety of sizes.

A very helpful way to eat while traveling is to keep dried foods on hand.  Bananas are good dried — just cut them into thin pieces and put in the dehydrator. They can be dried at the same time as the grain crisp.

Another good snack is dried zucchini squash. The zucchini only needs to be sliced ¼ inch to ½ inch thick. You may also make many different types of “candies and cookies”.  They can be kept in a plastic bag and served as fortification against the temptation to eat unhealthy foods while traveling.

Seasonings can also be dried: onions, parsley, scallions and any herb which has been grown in your garden. Any fresh vegetables lying unused in your refrigerator can be sliced and put into the dehydrator at the same time as your grain crisps. For reasons of economy, utilize all the space the dehydrator offers.

The most important thing to remember is not to set your dehydrator above 110 degrees, 105 is optimal.  Temperatures above 110 degrees begin to damage the enzymes and at 120 degrees the enzymes are destroyed. 

To conserve food you can dehydrate leftovers.

 Banana Pecan Cookies

8 bananas

1 1/2 cups pecans, ground or chopped fine

3 Tbs. raw carob powder

Honey to taste (optional)

Mash the bananas into a cream. Use a potato masher so some small chunks are left. This will make the cookie thicker. Add other ingredients and mix well. Spoon small amounts onto the dehydrator sheets and mash down. These will need to dehydrate for about 24 hours.

Sun Garden Burgers

3 T ground flax – see Note below

6 T water

1 cup carrot pulp – See Note below

1 cup sunflower seeds, ground

½ cup finely minced celery

6 T finely minced onion

2 T finely minced red pepper

1 t parsley

2 t coconut liquid aminos ( You can use Braggs or raw soy in place of the coconut aminos)

In a blender, combine the ground flax seeds and water, blending thoroughly.  Immediately pour the mixture into a bowl and set aside. Rinse the blender container before the mixture left in it hardens and becomes difficult to wash out.

In a medium-sized bowl, thoroughly mix the carrot pulp, sunflower seeds, celery, onion, parsley, red pepper and liquid aminos.  Add the flax seed mixture and mix thoroughly.  If necessary, add more water so the mixture can be formed into patties.  Form into six ½ inch thick patties.  Dehydrate for 4 – 8 hours, leave them in the sun until warm or place them in a warm oven for 10 – 15 minutes. 

NOTE:  To grind flax seeds, place them in an electric coffee grinder and grind until powdered.  To make carrot pulp, put carrots through a heavy-duty juicer, using a juicing screen.  Use the pulp in the recipe.  Drink the juice, or reserve it for another use.

Protein Cookies

The following recipes can be made with whatever sprouted nuts or seed-cheese you have on hand.

 – Nut Crunches

Soak nuts (pecans, almonds or walnuts, etc. – whatever is on hand), saving a few to chop dry. Blend the nuts with rejuvelac and add a similar amount of bananas to make a smooth batter. Blend in the reserved dry, chopped nuts. Drop by spoon onto a dehydrator sheet and dehydrate until ready. Tasty combinations suggested are Walnut/Banana and Almond/Banana. Experiment and enjoy!

(You may use sunflower seed-cheese as a substitute for the soaked nuts, however in addition to the banana you can add soaked prunes for improved flavor).

– Chewy Protein Treats

Soak nuts (pecans, almonds or walnuts, etc – whatever is on hand) and blend with rejuvelac. Add prunes and banana to the blender after nuts and rejuvelac are well blended. A good proportion is 1/2 quantity of nuts and 1/4 each of prune and banana. Drop by spoon onto dehydrator sheet and dehydrate until ready.

VARIATION – Same as above only use 1/2 quantity of nuts with the appropriate amount of rejuvelac and instead use 1/4 quantity of apple and 1/4 quantity of soaked dates. As above, drop by spoon and dehydrate until ready.

 Grain Crisps (bread replacements)

Use grains such as wheat, rye, kamut or spelt. For variety, add vegetables and/or herbs and spices. To sweeten, blend sprouted grain with banana and rejuvelac. Experiment!

1.         SOAK seeds for 12 hours. 

2.         SPROUT seeds for 2 days.

3.         BLEND with water or rejuvelac.

4.         POUR onto teflex dehydrator sheets and dehydrate at 110 degrees for 24 hours or

            longer, depending on the thickness..

6.         STORE in plastic containers (airtight not necessary). These will keep for several weeks.

Banana Sunflower Treats

8-10 Bananas

2-3 cups soaked sprouted sunflower seeds

A touch of cinnamon (optional)

Mash the bananas into a cream, leaving some small chunks for a heavy texture. Chop the sunflower seeds using a blender or a food processor. If you use the blender you will need to use enough rejuvelac or water to mix.  The blender will give you a finer texture. Spoon small amounts of the mixture onto dehydrator sheets and dehydrate until ready.

Mexican Flax Crackers

6 cups flaxseeds, soaked 4 – 6 hours in 5 ½ cups water

4 medium tomatoes, blended

1 red bell pepper, finely chopped

½ cup coconut amino acids

2 T lemon juice

2 t chili powder

2 t dried cilantro

1 t garlic powder

½ onion, chopped

½ t cayenne

Mix all ingredients well and adjust seasonings.  Keep the mixture moist and loose for spreading.  Spread mixture as thin as possible (approximately ¼ inch thick) on dehydrator trays with teflex sheets.  Keeping hands wet will help in the spreading.  Dehydrate at 105 degrees for 5 – 6 hours, flip crackers over and remove the teflex sheets.  Continue dehydrating for 4 – 5 hours or until the crackers are completely dry.

Corn Chips

 6 ears non sweet corn, remove from cob

½ yellow onion

2 cups sprouted sunflower seeds, soaked 6 hours and rinsed

¼ cup water

1 ½ T coconut  liquid aminos

1 t kelp powder

Process corn and onion in a food processor, using the “s” blade.  Stop and scrape the sides;  blend until smooth. Add sprouted sunflower seeds and process until the mixture is well blended and the consistency of a batter.  Add some water if the batter is too thick.  Add Braggs and kelp; mix well. Using a teaspoon, scoop batter onto the teflex sheet of a dehydrator tray.  Flatten with a knife into a flat round surface about 1/8” thick and 1 1/2” wide.  Dehydrate at 105 for 12 hours, then remove teflex sheet and turn chips over.  Continue dehydrating for 10 – 12 hours, or until desired crispness is obtained.

To Your Health – A Shot of Wheatgrass

This article was written by Bobby and appeared in the Cold Water Michigan newspaper.

To Your Health – A Shot of Wheatgrass

Many of us within Branch County, financially benefit from modern farming techniques, most of our farms fertilize with NPK (Nitrogen, Phosphorous, Potassium) and it dramatically increase crop yields. Unfortunately, this fertilization process does not contain the necessary vitamins, phyto-nutrients and trace minerals, needed by the human body, for good health and prevention of disease. The cost of adding these nutrients to the soil is usually cost prohibitive and therefore the need nutrients are not incorporated into the farming process.

Supplying the human body with these lost nutrients is what wheatgrass does best. First studied for fortifying animal feed by agricultural chemist Charles Schanabel in the 1930s, wheatgrass was found to have more than 90 of the minerals and nutrients needed for the human body to operate at optimum levels.  In the early 60’s, Dr. Ann Wigmore, utilized wheatgrass in healing her own colon cancer and since then 1000’s of other people have learned about wheatgrass. Here at Creative Health we have been growing wheatgrass for 37 years and have had more than 15000 people attend  our institute, experiencing and learning the benefits of the wheatgrass and Dr. Ann Wigmore’s Raw Living Food Lifestyle. 

Wheatgrass contains over 90 minerals, including high concentrations of the most alkaline minerals: potassium, calcium, magnesium and sodium. Because it is a complete food it had all of the most necessary nutrients for life including the enzymes Protease (assists in protein digestion), Cytochrome Oxidase (a powerful anti oxidant), Amylase (facilitates digestion), Lipase (a fat splitting enzyme), Transhydrogenase (strengthens the heart muscle) & Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) (found in all body cells and is known for its ability to lessen the effect of radiation and slow cellular aging).

 Wheatgrass also contains 70% Oxygen rich Chlorophyll, which Otto Warburg, a German biochemist, won a Nobel Prize for his study, which proved cancer cells, cannot exist in the presence of oxygen. Dr. Ann Wigmore called wheatgrass “liquid oxygen.

 The enzymes, amino acids, and chlorophyll in wheatgrass juice also contain antibacterial compounds that are especially good at destroying anaerobic bacteria that thrive in oxygen-poor blood and tissue.

 If you feel like you would like to learn more about wheatgrass, I recommend “Wheat Grass Natures Finest Medicine” by Steve Meyerowitz and “Why Suffer – How I Overcame Illness & Pain” by Dr. Ann Wigmore. You can download a free copy of this book from several location on the internet.

A Simple Yeast Overgrowth Test You Can Do At Home

 
Yeast Over Growth Test

“Some health care professionals believe that Up to 89% of Americans May Have Candida” – If you would like to have a good indication if you have an over abundance of yeast… 

Try this Fast Candida Saliva Test Our Students & Guest Do It Every Day!` 

When you awake in the morning, before you brush your teeth, drink anything or eat any food, bring your tongue to the roof of your mouth and make a chewing motion until you have enough saliva in your mouth, then spit the saliva into a clear 8 oz  glass of water. Within 5-15 minutes, look in the glass. If there are strings coming down from your saliva, or if the water turned cloudy, or if your saliva sank to the bottom, You May have a Candida concern.  Healthy saliva will simply float on the top! 

Why does this work? 

Candida overgrowth begins in the colon. Overtime, as the fungal yeast multiplies it begins to migrate through the digestive tract, moving up into the small intestine, then the stomach (bloating, indigestion), up the esophagus and into the mouth. If it becomes strongly entrenched there and many times you can see a white film on your tongue and inside your cheeks. Once it has moved up to the mouth and you spit into a glass of water the yeast will sink because it is heavier than water. If there is no yeast, it will float on top. 

Remember this test is not 100% accurate and may miss yeast that has not traveled into the up the digestive track and entrenched itself on the tongue or in the mouth.  At Creative Health Institute we use the test as an indicator making sure our students understand that it is both a science and an art, when it comes to reading the results of the saliva test.

Physicians have other testing modalites which help with identifying Candida Overgrowth (CO).  One of the most reliable is the Candida Immune Complexes test, followed by a combinatoin of IgA, IgG and IgM test.  These tests range from $100 to $250, excluding the cost of your office visit.

Checklist for Candida Albicans  

This test is reviewing the signs and symptoms to determine if you have Candida Albicans yeast infection Overgrowth. 

Candida Albicans yeast infection Overgrowth, Candida Overgrowth (CO) symptoms are so numerous and seemingly unrelated that they can be confusing to both doctor and patient. The majority of people who have CO do not realize they have it until they become seriously ill. Why? Because candida yeast not only steals nutrients from the food that you eat, it then poisons the tissues with waste material containing over 75 known toxins. Candida albicans is linked, directly or indirectly, to the following list of conditions and symptoms. A “symptom” is an outward sign that points to a deeper problem.

0-4 points – Indicates variations of normal living (unless persistent and severe).
5-9 Points– Indicates a Clear Pattern shows likely development of CO dysbiosis.
10 or more – Indicates Strong Pattern and almost certain CO dysbiosis. 

The term dysbiosis was originally introduced in the early 1900s by Dr Eli Metchnikoff to describe an imbalance of the bacteria in the gut. Literally it means ‘dys’ incorrect and ‘biosis’ life. The word comes from ‘symbiosis’ meaning to reside together harmoniously with the ‘dys’ meaning the opposite. He coined the expression that “Death begins in the gut!”. Metchnikoff was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1908 for his work on friendly bacterial flora [1]. He introduced the idea that fermented milk products could prove beneficial to the gut, inhibiting bacterial infection. He believed that the root of many diseases was via intestinal bacteria decomposing protein in the bowel. Lactic acid producing bacteria were believed to stunt the production of the pathogenic bacteria. 

Evidence has suggested that Dysbiosis plays a part in many conditions such as: Over production of yeast, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Anklyosing Spondylitus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Chronic Fatigue, Eczema, food allergies. Many people are unaware that they are even suffering from Dysbiosis.

Yeast Infections, A Quick Overview

There are many natural treatments for yeast infections. The challenge is finding the one that will eliminate the symptoms, bring immediate comfort and quickly strengthen your body, so your immune system will keep any new over growth of yeast in check. 

 One of the twenty funguses known as Candida Albicans usually causes a yeast infection and the infection it causes is Candidiasis. It is estimated that over 75% of women suffer from vaginal yeast infection at least once in their lifetime. Even with such a large percentage of women suffers, Candidiasis is not just a “female disease”, it is also found in males and in children as well, no matter what age or sex. Candida yeast also produce (as a waste product) more than 75 toxic substances that poison the human body. The two major toxins (canditoxin and ethanol) have a negative effect on our brain and can significantly interfere with our biochemical processes.  If Candida Albicans is not treated properly, it can cause many severe health challenges.
