The first step in healing is Cleansing. The body is designed to heal itself given the proper nutrients it needs. However if your digestive system is clogged and unclean, it cannot absorb nutrients no matter how much nutritious food or food supplement you feed your body. If your blood is full of toxins, free radicals and acids, your body cannot heal itself in spite of the medications you are taking in. Thus, cleansing is essential.
Wheatgrass is used orally for removing deposits of drugs, heavy metals, and carcinogens from the body and removing toxins from the liver, digestive system and from the blood stream.
The chlorophyll in wheatgrass helps produce sufficient and good quality of red blood cells. The red blood cells take away waste products from every cell in the body. Healthy red blood cells mean efficient detoxification of cells. Chlorophyll and enzymes in wheatgrass neutralize toxic substances and heavy metals like cadmium, nicotine, strontium and mercury by changing them into insoluble salts which the body can eliminate more easily. Wheatgrass can also be mixed with water to wash fruits and vegetables to get rid of pollutants, pesticides, herbicides and other chemicals sprayed on them.
Wheatgrass has high levels of antioxidants like vitamins A, C, E, bioflavonoids, lutein, zeaxanthin and many other phytochemicals. It helps neutralize free radicals that damage cells and lead to different diseases, including cancer.
Wheatgrass is also a rich source of fiber and can prevent colon cancer. Fiber or roughage acts like a broom in the stomach sweeping the garbage and toxins out of the digestive system. It gives bulk and stimulates peristalsis or natural wave-like movement in the intestines. Because of this, wheatgrass promotes regular bowel movement and prevents constipation.
Wheatgrass contains more than 100 types of enzymes. Enzymes are especially vital to the process of blood cleansing. The liver, which is the detoxifying organ of the body, cannot carry out its function without the enzymes needed to breakdown harmful substances in the body. Two of the most powerful enzymes are found in wheatgrass: SOD (Super Oxide Dismutase) and P4D1, the first known substance to actually stimulate the repair of DNA molecules.
