The Healing Benefits of Cereal Grasses and Greens

Cereal grasses are known as wheat grass, barley grass, rye grass, oat grass, have all been used as a human food supplement since the 1930's.
The importance of healthy green leafy vegetables and grasses in the human diet cannot be overlooked even in this day and age.
The benefits of these grasses can be derived from their fresh or dehydrated (powder) form.
A study conducted as early as 1931 by scientists and researchers of nutrition found that the level of milk, as well as the quality, fell when cows did NOT consume young leafy greens, and were not allowed to wander about freely to eat these greens.
As research went on through the years, it was discovered that cereal grasses were found to be an excellent source of Beta-carotene, Vitamin K (a vitamin that has most recently been found to be lacking in the human diet), folic Acid, Calcium, iron, protein and fiber as well as very high amounts of Vitamin C and many of the B vitamins.
The cereal grasses can be found in dehydrated form in local health food stores.
They are a source of concentrated green foods.
These foods in the human diet cannot be overstated.
Our diet is sorely lacking in color.
It is extremely important to the quality of our health to include organic leafy green vegetables in our daily diet.
Cereal grasses, as well as dark leafy greens, contain a factor that assists the body in blocking immune attacking organisms by an active ingredient called glucosascorbic acid.
Unfortunately, you cannot get this by taking only vitamin C (ascorbic acid).
Green vegetables are of critical importance in our diet today, because in our 21st century world that is filled with chemicals, we are experiencing an impoverished food supply, and therefore cannot depend solely on foods for all our critical nutrients.
The healing properties of leafy greens and cereal grasses have long been proven by science.
A study done by Stanford researchers in 1950 demonstrated that dark green foods and cereal grasses contain factors that promote the healing of peptic ulcers, as well as the now known designer disease G.
(acid reflux.
) Eating greens can help promote the healing of this ailment.
It is long withstanding that the oldest health insurance is to eat "Whole Organic Foods".
The best and lasting cures are those, which allow the body to heal itself.
Unlike the allopathic route, which is what doctors' push, which only serves to force the body into a false healing route.
As strong healthy humans we need a nutritionally adequate eating plan which includes organic green food, air, sunshine, and in this 21st century, high quality, high bio-available, international grade vitamins and minerals.
All this is necessary to begin to allow the body to follow its own path for healing and allowing the body to function at its best.
Here is my suggestion to my clients.
Follow this plan to promote healing and stay healthy:
  • Eat dark green veggies and cereal grasses daily.
  • Take in clean pure water
  • Get sun daily,
  • Take high quality vitamins and minerals
  • Exercise daily for 40 min.
  • Follow a regimen of yoga at least 3 times a week
