The teachings of Jesus regarding grass seemed to have been lost in time until the mid 1930's when Charles F. Schnabel an agricultural chemist when he attempted to used fresh cut grass in an attempt to help hens that were dying, to recover from illness. The hens not only recovered, but they produced eggs at a higher rate than healthy hens. Then in the 1940s we started to study the use of wheatgrass and chlorophyll, the studies which were carried out by doctors using the FDA required standards showed that chlorophyll was a great healer. So why are we not using it in main stream medicine? I can only guess its because of the fact that it is very hard to sell something that grows in every ones garden! The fact is that mother nature has created approximately 1700 different types of grass and each one offers perfect food for man.
So in and around the same time as the research was going on, a Lithuanian lady living in Boston in the USA was diagnosed with colon cancer, her name was Ann Wigmore. Ann's life was was an amazing one to say the least. Born in 1909 in Lithuania Ann Wigmore suffered allot from illness and disease as a baby, so much so her parents were unable to care for her. Thankfully her grandmother taken her and brought her to the United States to try and start a new life. Ann's grandmother was a self-taught naturalist, and helped Ann and restored her back to good health. it was from her grandmother Ann learned about healing using herbs, moss, weeds etc. Ann's story is a long and interesting one and is for another article, but needless to say she made a full recovery from her cancer using living foods, and wheatgrass was the cornerstone of her diet. Ann continued helping people and animals recover from chronic disorders using wheatgrass until she died. Today her teachings and way of life lives on through the Ann Wigmore Foundation.
As word spread about the story of Ann Wigmore and the power of wheatgrass juice research seems to be continuing up to present times and hundreds of people are telling their story's on how wheatgrass has helped them recover from a large number of illnesses, and how its a great preventive of illness as it keeps your immune system in great shape. controls blood sugar levels and so on. But the truth is that is not the healer, its your body that heals itself, your body is designed to act as its own physician, all you have to do is provide it with the proper tools - Fresh Living Organic Nourishing Food.
Knowing this - If you look at our diets today, where does our body get Fresh Living Organic Nourishing Food?
Very few foods available to us today have the above elements, most foods we buy today are over processed and have so many additives and preservatives in them to try and keep a longer shelf life, and make them look nice and taste nice so you will buy them, and if we do buy or have access to Fresh Living Organic Nourishing Food, We usually destroy the living enzymes and diminish its nutrient's it in the cooking process.
Mother Nature was not asleep at the wheel when she was creating the world we live in, she created the foods of the earth in such a way that they would nourish us and keep us healthy and well. Over time we have altered the way we grow, gather, store and eat our food. which seems to be to our own demise.
So what can we do? The truth is nothing is going to change overnight and in the meantime we need to keep our bodyВ’s supplied with the tools it needs to maintain itself and keep it in working order.
