55 Specific Wheatgrass Benefits

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

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

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

List of 55 Specific Wheatgrass Benefits

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

Wishing everyone here in the USA a happy 4th of July. For our friends around the world we wish you peace, health and prosperity. Sending love and blessings. Dr. Bobby

A Brief History of Wheatgrass

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The “Wheatgrass Juice Factor”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“To clear up foul-smelling odours, neutralize strep infections, heal wounds, hasten skin grafting, cure chronic sinusitis, overcome ear inflammation and infections, reduce varicose veins and heal leg ulcers, eliminate impetigo and other scabby eruptions, heal rectal sores, successfully treat inflammation of the uterine cervix, get rid of parasitic vaginal infections, reduce typhoid fever, and cure advanced pyorrhea in many cases”.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Love & blessings, Bobby

Better Tasting Energy Soup

Energy Soup – Your Way!

 Leafy Greens – Spinach, kale, swiss chard or any of your favorite leafy greens. Make sure to look for wild greens, as they have amazing nutritional properties.

 Raw Vegetables – zucchini, cucumber, asparagus, bell peppers, broccoli, or any other raw vegetable, adding at least 1-2 of them to the the greens. If you do not have a problem with night-shades try adding some tomatoes.

 Raw Fruits – Choose your favorite fruit. We love apples, pears and mangoes, but you can choose your favorite fruit to make your energy soup your own.. My standard is apples and I add only a single apple along with an inch of fresh ginger to make a pitcher of sweet energy soup.

 Flavor Enhancers – Dulse, kelp and other sea vegetables really being up the flavor of the soup and are an excellent source of minerals. Raw onions and garlic add delicious flavor to soup. Fresh ginger is always a favorite and when making a sweet soup,you may even want to add a touch of cinnamon or nutmeg to garnish your soup

 Fresh Herbs – Basil, oregano, Italian seasoning, or cilantro; experiment with your favorite herbs. You may want to use no more than two different herbs as you don’t want to make the soups flavor too complex.

 Fresh Lemon Juice – Lemon juice is extremely alkalizing to the body and adds a subtle tang to your soup.

 Nut & Seed & Avocado Cream – You can simply add the avocado to make the soup creamer. To increase the protein content of the soup experiment with seed and nut creams or just as some of your favorite nuts and seeds to the soup and blend in. My favorite is hemp.

 Unprocessed Sea Salt and Pepper – A little touch of sea salt will enhance the flavor of your soup. Go easy on the salt and use more duse or kelp as enhancers. Regular iodized table salt is heavily processed, so opt for sea salt instead. Crushed black pepper adds a nice addition, as does cayenne pepper if you like your soup spicy.

 Rejuvelac or Water. You need to add some liquid to get your soup to the consistency you like. How thick you want your soup is totally up to you. Here at CHI we always use rejuvelac as part of our soup base. Its amazing how wonderful it makes the soup taste, while making it I like a thick, creamy soup.

 Wishing everyone a great easter weekend. Love & Blessings, Bobby

Relieving Autointoxication By Dry Skin Brushing

 

 Nothing Cleanses The Lymph System Like Dry Skin Brushing

 What is the largest organ in the body? THE SKIN!

  1. What is one of the most important elimination organs in the body? THE SKIN!
  2. What organ is responsible for ¼ of the body’s detoxification each day?
    THE SKIN!
  3. What organ eliminates up to 2 pounds of waste acids, daily? THE SKIN!
  4. When the blood has an over abundance of toxic materials, what organ will reflect this with problems? THE SKIN! 

Dry skin brushing is a swift and powerful way to enhance the detoxification process . Its easy, pleasant and yields tremendous benefits!

Dry brushing has been used for centuries by Scandinavians and Russians. More than 30 years ago, a Finnish doctor and one the greatest doctors of the century, Paavo Airola prescribed dry skin brushing for all his patients for detoxifying the lymph system and to exfoliate and stimulate the skin. Today,many health practitioners recommend dry skin brushing to open the pores of the skin and clean out the lymphatic system.  Dry skin brushing is not only a great way to maintain healthy skin, but also helps maintain a healthy body. The ability of the skin to open up the pores to excrete toxins is of paramount importance in helping to overcome autointoxication. 

When the pores are not clogged with dead cells and the lymphatic system is stimulated and cleansed, all organs in the body are better able to carry out the important function of eliminating toxic waste. Further, it increases blood circulation in all underlying organs and tissues. 

As part of a detoxification and autointoxication cleansing program, our guests combine skin brushing, saunas and warm and cold showers. Follow these steps for the highest level of cleansing:

  1. Skin brush before entering the sauna, remain in the sauna until in a full sweat.
  2. Take a warm shower followed by a quick cold shower
  3. Dry off all of your body and dry skin brush again – always towards your heart accept for between the bottom and top of your neck.
  4. Jump back into the sauna and remain to the point of flowing perspiration. 
  5. This combination of skin brushing, saunas and showers has proved to be a powerful method for eliminating waste and toxins from the body.

CHI recommends you dry skin brush, morning and night, before your enema, during the program, then once a day after the program is completed.

       I.        A long-handled natural bristle brush, with a removable head is best. 

      II.        When you first start be sure to brush the skin lightly. Always towards your heart accept for between the bottom and top of your neck.

    III.        As the skin becomes toned, you may brush heavier.  Women should not brush their breast.

   IV.        Start at the bottom of the feet using a straight motion. 

     V.        Brush in long strokes from the feet toward the waist.

   VI.        Brush from the waste to the bottom of your rib cage, moving the brush with clockwise circular motions.

  VII.        Brush the ribcage towards the heart.

 VIII.        Hold your arm out in front of you and brush from your fingers toward your shoulders.

   IX.        Brush up from the bottom of your neck to the top of it

     X.        Brush from the bottom of your neck toward your heart.

   XI.        Brush your skin until it gets a red glow.

  XII.        Women should avoid doing the breasts. 

 XIII.        Never wet your dry skin brush, accept for cleaning. Avoid sensitive areas and anywhere the skin is broken.

 XV.        Skin brushing should take about 5 minutes. Clean your skin brush using soap and water once a week. After rinsing, dry your skin brush in an open, sunny spot to prevent mildew.

Proper Showering After Dry Brushing

If you are not following the aforementioned routine, a shower should always follow skin brushing. 

  1. This will remove uric acid crystals along with any dead skin that has been loosened. 
  2. Always start your shower with warm water and end with cold. 
  3. Once the water is cold, do not stay in any longer.  When the water turns cold, let it hit your legs first.  Do not let it hit your heart or head first as this can cause a slight shock to the body. 
  4. Vigorously dry off your body.
  5. Though this is not a problem here at CHI hot shower temperatures create steam that can disperse toxic chemicals found in unfiltered water:   Therefore, avoid hot showers, if your water is not filtered. 

The Seven Magnificent Benefits of Dry Skin Brushing

      I.        Opens pores, removes toxins and dead skin allowing the skin to breath.

    II.        Increases blood circulation and healthy cell renewal.

   III.        Helps to stimulate hormone and oil-producing glands.

  IV.        Helps to take the load off other organs by helping the eliminative system, discharge metabolic wastes, greatly aiding with the movement of lymph and the lymphatic drainage of the entire body.

   V.        Helps in rejuvenating the nervous system. Helps improve muscle tone and prevent fat deposits, including cellulite.

  VI.        Rejuvenates the skin and improves complexion.

 VII.        Dry skin brushing stimulates the lymph canals to drain toxic lymph matter into the colon, thereby purifying the entire system. This enables the lymph to perform its house-cleaning duties by keeping the blood and other vital tissues detoxified. After several days of dry brushing, you may notice the gelatinous lymph material in your stools.’

Carrot Celery Clean Sweep


Makes 1 large or two small glasses

Ingredients:

  • 1 celery stick
  • 11 oz of carrots
  • 5 oz green grapes
  • several large sprigs of parsley
  • celery and/or carrot stick to serve as garnish

Directions:

  1. Using a sharp knife, roughly chop the celery and carrots. Push Half of the celery, carrots and grapes through a juicer, then add the parsley sprigs. Add the remaining celery, carrots and grapes in the same way and juice until thoroughly combined.
  2. Pour into one or two glasses and serve with celery and/or carrot stick stirrers for garnish.

Health Tip: This juice is so packed with goodness, you can almost feel it cleansing and detoxing your body. As well as valuable vitamins, the carrots and grapes provide plenty of natural sweetness, which blends perfectly with the mild pepperiness of the celery and fresh scent of parsley.

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.

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.

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!

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

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 Institutes Teaching On COPD Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Many people come to Creative Health Institute to learn how to get relief from COPD. We have a complete training program for those who need help or would like to help those who suffer from this terrible disease.
Our Health and Education Director Robert “Bobby Morgan” teaches classes which cover all the specific types of foods and herbs which are used in helping COPD sufferers obtain relief. If you know of anyone who is suffering from this disease or you would like to lean learn more about COPD, call Creative Health Institutes toll free number, 866.426.1213 and we will send a information packed brochure, which cover CHI’s COPD programs.

Causes of COPD
The primary causes of COPD is long term cigarette smoking, the more years you smoke and the more packs you smoke, the greater your risk. Symptoms of COPD usually appear about 10 years after you start smoking, but other irritants can cause COPD including second hand smoke, occupational dust, vapors, hazardous fumes, asbestos as well as air pollution have all been shown to be contributing factors. In very rare cases, COPD results from a genetic disorder that causes low levels of a protein called alpha-1-antitrypsin.

Early Warning Signs
Early warning signs of COPD are unique to each person and you may not even realize that you are having trouble breathing. Therefore we have put together some signs to watch for. If you find that you have any of these symptoms you may want to talk to your doctor since a change, combination or increase in the symptoms I have listed may be an early warning sign of COPD.

Are You Experiencing One Or More Of The Following:
1. An increase in the amount of sputum produced (Sputum: The mucus and other matter brought up from the lungs, bronchi, and trachea that one may cough up and spit out or swallow)
2. An increase in the thickness or stickiness of sputum
3. A change in sputum color to yellow or green or the presence of blood in the sputum
4. An increase in the severity of shortness of breath, cough and/or wheezing
5. Using more pillows or sleeping in a chair instead of a bed to avoid shortness of breath
6. A general feeling of ill health
7. Ankle swelling
8. Forgetfulness, confusion, slurring of speech and sleepiness
9. Increasing morning headaches, dizzy spells, restlessness
10. Trouble sleeping
11. An unexplained increase or decrease in weight
12. Increased feeling of fatigue and lack of energy that is persistent
13. A lack of sexual drive

Once COPD has been diagnosed, early treatment is most effective, timely assessment of your symptoms can help you and your healthcare provider decide the type of treatment that will most benefit you.

Many of our guests have chosen to augment their treatment of COPD with more holistic approaches designed to strengthening their immune systems. They feel that eating raw living foods diet, drinking wheatgrass and taking wheatgrass baths, enemas and implants, help to alleviate many of their COPD symptoms. Guests also use herbs and supplements. to enhance their ability to deal effectively with COPD. Some of the herbs and supplements our guests seem to find helpful are:

Herbs & Supplements
1. Comfrey leaves – help because they stimulate new cell growth and support quick healing. This makes it an excellent natural remedy for the lungs. It inhibits the cough reflex, softens and soothes damaged and inflamed bronchial mucus membranes. It helps to loosen mucus from the bronchial tubes so that it does not accumulate. You can buy comfrey leaf or root in various forms. Check with your Doctor before taking this herb.
2. Black tea – many COPD sufferers turn to tea for relief from tightening in the chest. Black tea contains chemicals related to the stimulant theophylline, which is also the basis of many modern medical remedies. Three or four cups of black tea can open airway passages and ease breathing.
3. Ginkgo – when used regularly the active ingredient has helped some patients to cut down on prescribed medication. Taken three times a day for a week or a month at a time. Ginkgo helps relax the lungs and keeps the breathing passage clear. Check with your Doctor before taking this herb.
4. Vitamin C and magnesium – improves lung function.
5. Pleurisy Root – possesses a specific action on the lungs, assisting expectoration, subduing inflammation and exerting a general mild tonic effect on the system, making it valuable in all chest complaints. It is of great use in pleurisy, mitigating the pain and relieving the difficulty of breathing, and is also recommended in pulmonary catarrh. The infusion may be prepared by taking 1 teaspoonful of the powder in a cupful of boiling water. The decoction is taken in doses of 2 to 3 fluid ounces. The dose of the fluid extract is 1/2 to 1 drachm; of Asclepin, 1 to 4 grains. A much-recommended herbal recipe is: Essence of composition powder, 1 OZ.; fluid extract of Pleurisy Root, 1 OZ. Mix and take a teaspoonful three or four times daily in warm water. Doctor before taking this herb.
6. Yerba Santa Holy Herb – medicines prepared with it or its extracts to treat bronchial and laryngeal problems. In addition, in combination with other herbs such as Grindelia robusta (good for Asthmatic bronchitis) yerba santa is also effective in curing insistent pulmonary infections, hay fever and asthma. There is no proven safe or effective dose for yerba santa in adults. Traditionally, 1-2 milliliters of fluid extract has been taken by mouth with a spoon every 3-4 hours for no more than ten days.

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.

Can You Be An Athlete And Eat A Raw Living Foods Diet?

What Do These World Class Athletes Have In Common? 

Bob Mionske, Esq. Portland, OR – U.S. Olympic Racing Cyclist, 1992;

Tim VanOrden – US Masters Champion Mountain Runner, 2010

Brendan Brazier – Canadian Champion:  50km Ultra Marathon, 2006;

Christine Vardaros – Champion World Class Cyclo-Cross Racer, 2007 Team USA

Kenneth G. Williams-Third at the U.S. Natural Mr. Olympia, 2004

James Southwood – International Kickboxing Champion, 2006

    They represent a new group of elite, super-vegan champion athletes, who are raising the competitive bar and setting new records  in the world of sports, according to recent press articles.  The secret weapon of these super athletes secret weapon is a nutrition coming from almost an exclusively or mainly made up of raw living foods.  All of them are dedicated to the live food diet and lifestyle, as it gives them the competitive edge,  enabling  them to achieve levels of health, strength, speed, stamina and agility that was not available to them before making this diet the center of their training regimen, according to their own comments.

     The ranks of professional champion and amateur  athletes are growing daily as they are reaping the benefits of utilizing raw live foods to enhance their performance.  They understand the raw living foods they’re eating are enzyme rich, loaded with oxygen and nutrient dense, according to what I’ve read about them.  With their old diets of mainly cooked food they were missing out on the enzymes and oxygen along with tremendous losses of vitamins and phyto-nutrients. 

     Enzymes are especially vulnerable to heat and many of them begin to lose their ability to function at 110 degrees Fahrenheit and are completely destroyed when the foods they are in reach 120 degrees Fahrenheit, according to my reading.  Once the exogenous enzymes are dead the entire digestion and nutrient assimilation process is left up to the indigenous enzymes to perform these functions, according to the legendary health practitioner Ann Wigmore, NMD.

    The problem is that our bodies only have a limited number of enzymes available and as we get older we are not able to make them at the levels that are required for optimum athletic performance, in-fact by the time a human reaches 50 years old they have less than 50% of the indigenous enzymes that they had at 25 years of age, according to my research.

   All humans, not just elite athletes need enzymes, which are the organic catalysts responsible for either starting chemical reactions or speeding them up, according to Dr. Ann.  Enzymes are also proteins, but unlike other proteins they have innate intelligentsia, according to many scientists.  Think of enzymes working much like a traffic cop, in that they direct and regulate the actions of the vitamins, minerals, phyto-nutrient and amino acids sending them along the body’s highways making sure they get off at the right exit.   You can also picture them as workers on a house construction site.   The vitamins, minerals and other nutrients are the building blocks.   As the workers on the house building site the enzymes take the building block to the house and place them where they should go. 

   Live, raw foods are the only 100% natural, healthy, source of nutrients that have what the body needs so it can function at the highest health levels possible, according to my experience.  The enzymes and high levels of oxygen, which athletes require to build and maintain muscles, are only found in raw living foods.  Best of all these foods do not have the toxins that are created by cooked foods and as much as 95% of the protein is available from all raw living foods, according to my experience.  Athletes who want to perform at the highest levels need high levels of protein and iron.   These necessary levels are found in sprouted seeds, grains and nuts which provide athletes with the highest levels of oxygen and bio-available amino acids, which insures high levels of protein and easy bio-availability and assimilation.

     Bobby’s ABC’s of Raw Living Food Athlete’s Diet

  1. 100% Live Foods:  Mix and match sprouted seeds nuts and grains.  These amazing foods are rich in amino acids, complex carbohydrate, zinc, B vitamins and enzymes.  To get the full benefit of these foods, blend them into energy soups or smoothies.  See the spouting chart at creativehealthinstitute/blog.com.
  2. Raw Fruits and Vegetables:  Choose from every color of the rainbow!  The high antioxidant ratings found in these amazing foods will ward off the toxins that are part of our internal and external environment, according to research arising from original work by Nobel Laureate Otto Warburg.  Don’t forget the leafy greens as they are loaded with more bio-available amino acids along with calcium, iron and every vitamin, mineral, &phyto-nutrient your body requires for strength, health and vitality, according to nutritionists.  Eat these foods in blended form and your body will not cry out for any kind of vitamin supplementation.   
  3. Probiotics:  Healthy bacteria are an essential part of your digestive system.  Fermented foods such as rejuvelac, seed cheese and sauerkraut provides super-powerful strains of pro-biotics, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and antioxidants.

 

Wishing all of our friends and family the healthiest lives 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.

Excerpts from The Wheatgrass Book by Ann Wigmore

More great information from the wheatgrass place, Creative Health Institute…

WHEATGRASS JUICE…

Increases red blood-cell count and lowers blood pressure. It cleanses the blood, organs and gastrointestinal tract of debris. Wheatgrass also stimulates metabolism and the body’s enzyme systems by enriching the blood. It also aids in reducing blood pressure by dilating the blood pathways throughout the body.

Stimulates the thyroid gland, correcting obesity, indigestion, and a host of other complaints.

Restores alkalinity to the blood. The juice’s abundance of alkaline minerals helps reduce over-acidity in the blood. It can be used to relieve many internal pains, and has been used successfully to treat peptic ulcers, ulcerative colitis, constipation, diarrhea, and other complaints of the gastrointestinal tract.

Is a powerful detoxifier, and liver and blood protector. The enzymes and amino acids found in wheatgrass can protect us from carcinogens like no other food or medicine. It strengthens our cells, detoxifies the liver and bloodstream, and chemically neutralizes environmental pollutants.

Fights tumors and neutralizes toxins. Recent studies show that wheatgrass juice has a powerful ability to fight tumors without the usual toxicity of drugs that also inhibit cell-destroying agents. The many active compounds found in grass juice cleanse the blood and neutralize and digest toxins in our cells.

Contains beneficial enzymes. Whether you have a cut finger you want to heal or you desire to lose five pounds…enzymes must do the actual work. The life and abilities of the enzymes found naturally in our bodies can be extended if we help them from the outside by adding exogenous enzymes, like the ones found in wheatgrass juice. Don’t cook it. We can only get the benefits of the many enzymes found in grass by eating it uncooked. Cooking destroys 100 percent of the enzymes in food.

Has remarkable similarity to our own blood. The second important nutritional aspect of chlorophyll is its remarkable similarity to hemoglobin, the compound that carries oxygen in the blood. Dr. Yoshihide Hagiwara, president of the Hagiwara Institute of Health in Japan, is a leading advocate for the use of grass as food and medicine. He reasons that since chlorophyll is soluble in fat particles, and fat particles are absorbed directly into the blood via the lymphatic system, that chlorophyll can also be absorbed in this way. In other words, when the “blood” of plants is absorbed in humans it is transformed into human blood, which transports nutrients to every cell of the body.

When used as a rectal implant, reverses damage from inside the lower bowel. An implant is a small amount of juice held in the lower bowel for about 20 minutes. In the case of illness, wheatgrass implants stimulate a rapid cleansing of the lower bowel and draw out accumulations of debris.

Externally applied to the skin can help eliminate itching almost immediately.

Will soothe sunburned skin and act as a disinfectant. Rubbed into the scalp before a shampoo, it will help mend damaged hair and alleviate itchy, scaly, scalp conditions.

Is soothing and healing for cuts, burns, scrapes, rashes, poison ivy, athlete’s foot, insect bites, boils, sores, open ulcers, tumors, and so on. Use as a poultice and replace every two to four hours.

Works as a sleep aide. Merely place a tray of living wheatgrass near the head of your bed. It will enhance the oxygen in the air and generate healthful negative ions to help you sleep more soundly.

Enhances your bath. Add some to your bath water and settle in for a nice, long soak.

Sweetens the breath and firms up and tightens gums. Just gargle with the juice.

Neutralizes toxic substances like cadmium, nicotine, strontium, mercury, and polyvinyl chloride.

Offers the benefits of a liquid oxygen transfusion since the juice contains liquid oxygen. Oxygen is vital to many body processes: it stimulates digestion (the oxidation of food), promotes clearer thinking (the brain utilizes 25% of the body’s oxygen supply), and protects the blood against anaerobic bacteria. Cancer cells cannot exist in the presence of oxygen.

Turns gray hair to its natural color again and greatly increases energy levels when consumed daily.

Is a beauty treatment that slows down the aging process when the juice is consumed. Wheatgrass will cleanse your blood and help rejuvenate aging cells, slowing the aging process way down, making you feel more alive right away. It will help tighten loose and sagging skin.

Lessens the effects of radiation. One enzyme found in wheatgrass, SOD, lessens the effects of radiation and acts as an anti-inflammatory compound that may prevent cellular damage following heart attacks or exposure to irritants.

Restores fertility and promotes youthfulness.

Can double your red blood cell count just by soaking in it. Renowned nutritionist Dr. Bernard Jensen found that no other blood builders are superior to green juices and wheatgrass. In his book Health Magic Through Chlorophyll from Living Plant Life he mentions several cases where he was able to double the red blood cell count in a matter of days merely by having patients soak in a chlorophyll-water bath. Blood building results occur even more rapidly when patients drink green juices and wheatgrass regularly.

Our deepest thanks to Dr. Ann Wigmore and all of those who have given so much to help us renew our health.

Wishing everyone a blessed day,

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.”

Raw Foodists and Multiple Sclerosis

Those of us in the raw living foods community who have been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis don’t have quite as much company as the raw foodists who battle cancer, diabetes and some of other common illnesses. We hear about raw food victories over Multiple Sclerosis second or third hand and some of us can be living this raw food lifestyle for quite some time before we ever actually meet another raw foodist who has been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. That’s why I’ve started a new community on Facebook for people in the raw food community who have been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.

Please click HERE to be linked to the Facebook page Beating Multiple Sclerosis With Raw Living Food.  You have to click “like” to get updates. This page is meant as a community-building tool for raw foodists who have been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and for friends and family members who support them.  If you have blogs or videos about Multiple Sclerosis and raw living food,  please post them on the wall for this new Facebook page.

If you know raw foodists who have Multiple Sclerosis, please tell them about this new Facebook effort to build community.

Thank you so much and peace and joy be with you and the ones you love this new year!

You Are Controlled By Circadian ‘Believe It or Not’

It is now known that the molecular circadian clock can function within a single cell. At the same time, different cells may communicate with each other resulting in a synchronised output of electrical signaling.

Studies of circadian rhythms have turned up the following sometimes hard-to-believe information: 

  1. If we were to live in total darkness, we would fall into a cycle of days that last up to 25 hours or longer.
  2. Heart attacks are twice as likely to occur between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. as between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m. and between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.
  3. Body temperature is lowest before waking up in the morning, and highest in the late afternoon. A temperature of 99 degrees Fahrenheit might indicate fever at 7 a.m., but by 5 p.m. would be normal.
  4. People react more strongly to substances they’re allergic to around 11 p.m., while antihistamine drugs have the greatest impact in the morning.
  5. Eating one meal a day of 2,000 calories results in a weight loss when eaten as breakfast, but produces a weight gain as supper.
  6. Suicides peak in the morning and early afternoon.
  7. The length of time a person sleeps is related more closely to body temperature rhythms and bedtime than to how long the person has been awake. In experiments, even after being awake more than 20 hours, people free of time cues slept twice as long when they went to bed when their temperature was at its highest (in early evening) than when it was at its lowest (in the early morning).
  8. The senses of hearing, taste and smell are more acute at certain times of day. Studies show sensory acuity is highest at 3 a.m., falls off rapidly to a low at 6 a.m., then rises to another peak between 5 and 7 p.m. (This cycle is related to the hormone cycle; when steroid hormones are released, sensory acuity falls.) 
  9. Aspirin stays in the body longer when taken at 7 a.m. than when taken at 7 p.m.Body clocks are why doctors often prescribe taking medicines at certain times of day. For example, both aspirin and antihistamines work best taken in the morning. But some types of chemotherapy for cancer may be more effective and less toxic if administered at night.
  10. Women go into labor most often between 1:30 a.m. and 2:30 a.m. and least frequently about midday. Births between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. are associated with increased probability of complications in both the baby and the mother.

A Brief History Of Wheatgrass

“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 Twenty First 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 grass for the their animals.

Today, grass is the world’s most widespread form of vegetation. There are over 9,000 species of grass found across the planet, covering more than 25% of all earths land mass. You will find grass wherever there is 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 powerful members of ancient Egyptian society used wheatgrass on a regular basis, 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 find 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 eat also 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 discover of the wonder of chlorphyll,  in the laboratory, war had broken out across Europe and in the small county of Lithuania, a young girl named Ann Wigmore watched as her grandmother treated soldiers with it and later used wheatgrass to treat 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 the nutritional mysteries. They tested all types of vegetable and meat based feeds and found that animals could did not only survive on grass but thrived on it, but, 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 prior to the commencement of the jointing stage. Being an agricultural chemist, the focus of his 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 the most indepth study of its time proving the nutritional value of grasses and how the nutritonal 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 devleopment 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.

Scientist were amazed to find that 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 failed rapidly 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. 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 lieu 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 richest 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 provided.  Other benefits, however, could not be attributed to known nutrients.

In the early 1940’s, Dr. Charles Kettering (former chairman of the board of General Motors) donated money for the study of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll was studied intensively by medical doctors (there are currently over 40 articles written up in medical journals about the healing effects of chlorophyll.) These 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 (with the exception of 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 powerful healing foods known to man. Dr. Thomas found that an ounce of wheatgrass in a gallon of fluoridated water would turn the fluorine into 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 negative 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 natural raw living foods. She shared wheatgrass with several sick friends and along with her, 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 illness, it is neither a drug nor a magic bullet. Here at Creative Health Institute, (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 guests take in substantial quanities of wheatgrass along with raw living foods and take the time address their lifestyle physically, spiritually and  their mental and emotional state they can create an immune system that will not be as greatly affected by illness We invite you to join us on the wonderful journey of health and happiness.

Love & blessings,

Bobby
