Wheatgrass has helped thousands recover from serious illness, however, it is neither a drug nor a magic potion. It is, instead, the cornerstone of a holistic health restoration program that includes detoxification, nourishment from raw living foods and a revamping of the lifestyle including the mental and emotional conditions that initiated the ‘dis-ease.’ Unlike drug companies that promote their products with large advertising budgets, grass is unlikely to ever be approved for medical use. It is after all, not patentable. Instead it owes its popularity to an underground movement that is made up of thousands of individuals, hundreds of practitioners and a handful of healing resorts who all testify to its healing properties.
The Advantages of Wheatgrass
Wheatgrass is an amazing source of nourishment that can be considered a complete food. Indeed, it contains all known vitamins, minerals, and proteins. Wheatgrass is a blood purifier, a colon cleanser, and a liver detoxifier. This is the reason why it is used in specialized clinics around the world where people with terminal illnesses have gone as a last resort after being rejected by conventional medicine. I would never call wheatgrass a cure-all, but I do believe it is the most potent natural plant medicine I know. Wheatgrass is an adaptogen, an immune modulator, a deep nourishment, a supplier of plant hormones for growth and repair, an energizer, and ultimately a rejuvenating elixir. And by the way, it is also gluten-free.
