Benefits Of Wheatgrass To Our Health
For centuries, wheatgrass has been used as herbal medicine. It is rich in nutrients such as calcium, iron, selenium, amino acids, and chlorophyll. It was also found to abundantly contain vitamin A, C, E, and vitamin B17 (laetrile), which according to studies, has anti-cancer qualities.
The chlorophyll found in wheatgrass helps in cleansing the bowel and other systems like the liver and the blood. It is also a natural pain reliever, acts as an efficient detoxification agent, helps relieve inflammation, and reduces hypertension.
For you to be able to reap more benefits from wheatgrass, you should drink a fresh wheatgrass juice. Try adding it with fresh lemon juice or other freshly made juices to enhance its taste.
In 2008, Danny McDonald, 74-year-old from Ireland, has been diagnosed with stage 4 stomach cancer. The doctors said that cancer had already spread through his body and he would be dead in three months if he would not undergo their prescribed treatments.
“When someone is diagnosed with stomach cancer at the age of 70, the prognosis is usually bleak. For now-74 Danny of Donegal, Ireland, doctors said he only had weeks to live. But against their recommendations, he decided to go with a natural treatment method to rid his body of cancer and continue forward in the game of life. Wheatgrass is what helped him keep living to this day.”
“I told the doctors I wasn’t prepared to undergo the course of treatments they had suggested. I knew it would kill me. They were furious I had come to that conclusion. The consultant warned me I’d be dead in three months.”
Instead of suffering from toxic chemo treatments, Mcdonald decided to use a natural way of healing his body – with the help of wheatgrass juice.
Danny researched the benefits of wheatgrass. He has been a farmer for 60 years and he used his skills to grow his own wheatgrass. After that, he started his new life and consumed one ounce of juiced wheatgrass every morning and worked his way up to taking a full seven ounces of the potent superfood. After a week Danny had already felt changes in his body. The intense burning sensation that he was feeling before had completely disappeared.
In a report in cancercompassalternateroute.com, he says that:
“Within seven days, the burning sensation that I had in may side was gone and I was beginning to feel a lot better. I stopped taking tablets which had been prescribed (for pain) and I have not taken one since. A month later, the pain had completely disappeared and I knew I was on the mend. The wheatgrass was working. I had made the right decision to reject the advice of the doctors.”
Danny further added that:
“I know a lot of doctors think that wheatgrass does not have the qualities to kill cancer, but I am a living proof that it does. Although my doctors would not admit it publicly, gradually they are coming around to see the benefits of wheatgrass. When people ask me how I did it and I just say one word, ‘wheatgrass’.”
At this point, it’s really hard to argue with Danny. He was sure that he has taken the right path to cure his cancer beyond what any conventional professional could have guessed.
