The Power of Wheatgrass
Starting the day with an ounce of wheatgrass juice is one of the most powerful habits you can get into to jumpstart your health. Wheatgrass has antioxidant and antibacterial properties that help cleanse your digestive system, your blood and your skin. In it’s fresh form, wheatgrass assists the body in neutralizing toxins, aids the pancreas in glucose regulation and rejuvenates cells.
Although three ounces of wheatgrass contains a fair amount of vitamin A, calcium, magnesium and other nutrients, the main source of its healing benefits comes from chlorophyll.
Research scientist Dr. Max Bircher calls chlorophyll “concentrated sun power.” He writes, “Chlorophyll increases the function of the heart, affects the vascular system, the intestines, the uterus, and the lungs. It is therefore a tonic which, considering it’s stimulating properties, cannot be compared with any other.”
Growing your own wheatgrass is easy, and helps you feel like an active participant in your own healing. Wheatgrass growing kits can be found in many health food stores, and at the nearby Wheatgrass Center in Kaimuki. You can also find instructions online or in Ann Wigmore’s classic, The Wheatgrass Book: How to Grow and Use Wheatgrass to Maximize Your Health and Vitality. Of course, you can always call us to schedule a consultation to design your personal path to health and wellbeing.
