Many people would laugh at the idea that eating grass is synonymous to being a cow or a cattle grazing in the barn. However, has it ever come to your mind that you have considered as an animal food is the remedy for the ailments of man?
The above-mentioned question is nothing new to us. Would you believe that as early as the time of Jesus, grass is used as part of diet by Jewish group? Yes, they believed that the answer for a perfect health is a positive mental attitude and a good basic diet.
Not only would the Jewish people manifest the unprecedented abilities of wheatgrass as a food, nourishment and even as a medicine. In the 1940s, Ann Wigmore has been a supporter of wheatgrass when she was able to heal herself from cancer from the weeds she found in empty lots in the region of Boston. With this, Ann Wigmore became an avid supporter that leads her to write books regarding wheatgrass as well as healthy eating. She even founded a healing institute in Boston. Ann Wigmore was able to live until she was 84 but died, not because of cancer, but because the healing institute was burned.
In modern research, it has been said that the sicknesses that we have today are derive from poor diets. In these studies, it is said that food is either overly processed or cooked to death which leads to the destruction of life-giving vitamins, minerals, and enzymes to the ones eating it.
Wheatgrass is a rich source of vitamins, enzymes, amino acids and minerals. In addition, it is rich in sodium, cobalt, zinc, magnesium, phosphorus, iron, calcium, and sulfur.
Further, supporters of wheatgrass don’t only consider the above-mentioned ingredients to be enough because they said that there is still more in wheatgrass. They say that wheatgrass is very rich in chlorophyll, the “blood” of the plant kingdom. It is known that chlorophyll is liquid-form energy from the sun.
In the 1940s, the surge of support for wheatgrass, a lot of research was done regarding the health benefits of chlorophyll. Some of the health benefits that are accumulated from the chlorophyll of wheatgrass being a helpful tonic for acne, dental infections, kidney stones, and skin allergies. In addition, it claims that it can heal scar tissue especially in lungs due to the use of drugs and smoke.
Surely, wheatgrass will be and will always be one of the household names that we will trust when it comes to the different ailments that we suffer right now. It would be remarkable and truly satisfying to now that despite the ailment and sickness that comes our way, there is still hope that we can cling on. You better try it yourself.
