More than just a grain, wheatgrass has tremendous health and healing properties. As a primary ?sun-food,? it converts the sun?s rays directly into chlorophyll as well as an abundance of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and enzymes?all of which are needed to optimize well-being. Wheatgrass describes the outstanding therapeutic benefits of consuming wheatgrass juice. Included are home usage suggestions and growing instructions, as well as a cleansing and rejuvenation program that incorporates wheatgrass, fresh fruits and vegetables, fermented foods, herbs, and edible flowers.
Li Smith, who learned the value of staying close to nature in her youth on a South African farm, presents an introduction to wheatgrass's curative, restorative, and cleansing powers. This tender sprouted grass of the wheat grain provides amazing health advantages, and Smith explains how to best utilize these benefits in her in-depth manual. Touching on the history of wheatgrass use in both physical and spiritual health, this book gives the reader perspective on this "superfood" and instructions for growing, juicing, and supplementing the diet with this valuable vegetable. Smith's narrative is pleasant tone, humorous, and full of the love of life, and this--combined with the illustrations drawn by her husband, Richard Smith--makes WHEATGRASS an entertaining as well as enlightening read.
