has anyone taken wheatgrass?

I'd like to give it a go for its detoxifying effects, but am also concerned it could 'detoxify' the tasigna in my system and stop it doing it was supposed to be doing.

Anyone using this or any other complementary supplements?

Best wishes all

No, flour is made from the berry of the wheat plant and has gluten in it.  Wheatgrass is the young shoots of the plant and a gluten free food/supplement.

Hello Chris,


Wheatgrass: Liquid Sunshine That Destroys Toxins, Heals Wounds and Cleanses the Body


Wheatgrass is the little weed that could.

It's just the grass that sprouts up from the wheat plant, one of the most common commerical crops in the world.  Grass is all around us, so you wouldn't think such an innocuous shrub could have such a positive impact on your health.

But my friend, you are so, so, so mistaken!

When it comes to nutrients, wheatgrass is one of the meanest of the mean, and the greenest of the green.

Health Benefits

When you read the literature on wheatgrass, the word "anti" comes up a lot, and in the best possible way.


  • anti-cancer
  • anti-leukemia
  • anti-inflammatory
  • anti-oxidant

It's been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years, and today is popular among the alternative medicine crowd as a way to prevent cancer and stop leukemia, among other things.


Wheatgrass is 70% chlorophyll, which is an insanely high amount, even for green foods.

The high amount of chlorophyll increases the level of oxygen in the blood, which is why wheatgrass is commonly associated with detoxification and cleansing diets.

It allows harmful toxins to flow out of the body, and its high phenolic content allows it to bind to "chelated" metal ions in the colon and liver.

Fresh wheatgrass also has a high amount of biologically active enzymes and amino acids which use are activated by a chemical called glutathione that catalyze the breakdown of various nasty things within the body. Glutathione dependent detoxification pathways are common to green foods, and it's one of the many reasons veggies are so good for you.

Wheatgrass is nature's cleansing tonic.

Does Wheatgrass Have Gluten?

The presence of gluten is receiving an increasing amount of attention, and it's now commonly known that gluten is found in wheat.

However, wheatgrass does not have any gluten in it. Gluten is a type of protein found in the endosperm of some flowering plants and forms as a byproduct of certain manufacturing processes. Wheatgrass (and all grass for that matter) does not contain any gluten in it.

For this reason wheatgrass is very "diet friendly"....no matter what diet you're on.

It doesn't matter if you're vegan, paleo, pescatarian, gluten-free, etc. Wheatgrass has a place for you.

Wheatgrass juice

Juice Cleanse and Detox Diets

There's been more attention paid lately to juice fasts and "detox" diets. They've been around for a long time, but received more attention after the movie Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead came out. A guy with cancer cured himself by juicing a bunch of veggies for about a year or so.

Because wheatgrass is well known for its cleansing properties, its often used as a staple for such diet regimens.

Is it a good idea?

Yes. Cleansing diets are a unique animal, but because of its "greenness" using wheatgrass powder or wheatgrass juice is usually a good idea if you go on a juice fast.

It's probably not necessary to eat wheatgrass all the time, but in my opinion it's definitely a good idea to use some if you're going to go on the 7 day juicing binge.

And while some don't like the taste of wheatgrass, I actually find it refreshing. But of course, some have accused me of being weird :)

Making or Growing Your Own

You can buy lots of wheatgrass supplements, and that's a fine idea. Wheatgrass powder and wheatgrass juice powder are nice additions to the diet.

However, it's a well kept secret that growing and making your own wheatgrass is very easy and inexpensive.

Like I said before, it's just grass. Of wheat.....and I mean, wheat is everywhere, right?

How do you make wheatgrass?

It's simple. Just plant some wheat seedlings in fresh dirt, water daily, and watch it sprout up. That's it. Easy, huh?

Juicing it is similarly simple. Adding it to any juice concoction is a fine idea, and there are no additional steps you have to take. Just juice it, baby!

Sneezy12, Lord help you for always being so rude. Just becuase you are a skeptic, doesnt make you right! You are always rude on my post, you don't even know me, you don't even know what i have been through in my life! I will continue to share with people who are suffering from ilness and share with them the natural things for healing. I will continue to pass on what i know for FREE!!! You have NO knowledge on the benefits of Wheatgrass! You always accuse me for trying to sell something, which i have NEVER sold anything on this website! I am NOT a he,

i am a SHE, a mother of three children, who happens to be a christian, and also i have a family member who has CML leaukemia. I am giving away FREE information, FREE knowledge, so people may get healed! My family member has CML and we have been working together for their healing THROUGH MUCH PRAYER AND GOD'S GUIDANCE! Sure we are still doing the chemo pill Gleevec, but we are also adding fresh juicing to our diet and the Lord himself has also led us to do Wheatgrass Juice! The doctor always seems very encouraged by what we are doing. In fact once we had stopped the juicing for over a month, the Leukemia cells were not going down, they were staying the same and another time they had jumped up really high, of course that was after we had stopped the juicing. We once again started back on the juices for another month until our next Doctor's appointment, we then found out that the numbers dropped dramatically. Our Oncologist said continue to do what your doing! So Sneey12, just because you would love to damage my reputation here on this site, will NOT make a difference in what the Lord has for me to do. I want to help people get well! You have no idea how much sleep i have lost, you have no idea how many tears i have shed, since the diagnosis. But i kept on praying to God and asking to please help me to help my loved one survive! I said Lord please, i will do anything, just please help us. God knows my heart and he knows since my own family member has found out they have CML. i have been faithful in praying for their healing and following exactly what the Lord has told us to do. God HIMSELF is the one leading us both to do natural healing. I have spent countless hours doing tons of research, i have bought tons of books on natural healing. I am simply sharing what can heal! Wheastgrass is not a lot of money, you could buy your own seeds and grow it your self. It's actually pretty easy to grow. And in 7-10 days you can cut the wheatgrass and put it in a wheatgrass juicer and make your own juice. Sneezy12,  I could not do much of anything without the Lord. Jesus is the one who is going to cure my loved one's CML!  Jesus is the one who has promised to heal! I asked the Lord, how? he then directed me to help my loved one through natural, high enzyme foods wit micro nutrients. The Lord has impressed upon my heart, to start my family member on Wheatgrass, we have been following it faithfully for 2 months now, and when we went to the oncologist, all the numbers were actually perfect. I have never saw the blood test look so good and perfect like that before, even while just juicing. It was only after we added wheatgrass juice daily to our plan, that we saw everything on the results from top to bottom in perfect running order! God is good! H e is NOT a man that HE should lie! My loved one is going to be CURED! God already spoke it. We now just have to keep on following what the Lord has shown us to do, step by step. We are going to get a FULL REPORT SOON, SAYING CANCER FREE! NO MORE LEUKEMIA! PRAISE GOD! PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME! I will continue to share with people (for free)  who want the help.God wants me to help others and to share our testimony of HIS faithfulness to HEAL! Lord bless everyone here.

Both provide chlorophyll, amino acids, minerals, vitamins, and enzymes. Wheat grass is a humble weed that is a powerhouse of nutrients and vitamins for the human body. In the form of fresh juice, it has high concentrations of chlorophyll, active enzymes, vitamins and other nutrients
Key-Word: Wheat Grass, human consumption, Triticum aestivum, enzymes, vitamins, nutrients.

1) Introduction
Wheatgrass juice will provide you with more energy by fulfilling nutritional deficiencies and by removing wastes that clog your cells, blood, tissues and organs. Wheat Grass refers to the young grass of the common wheat plant, Triticum aestivum that is freshly juiced or dried into powder for animal and human consumption. Both provide chlorophyll, amino acids, minerals, vitamins, and enzymes. Wheat grass is a humble weed that is a powerhouse of nutrients and vitamins for the human body. In the form of fresh juice, it has high concentrations of chlorophyll, active enzymes, vitamins and other nutrients Although the wonder benefits of wheat grass are being discovered only now in India, they have been known in the West for years. Wheat grass juice has chlorophyll that neutralizes infections, heals wounds, overcomes inflammations and gets rid of parasitic infections the three most important effects of wheat grass on the human body are: blood purification, liver detoxification and colon cleansing. This is because wheat grass juice is the richest source of vitamins A, B, C, E and K, calcium, potassium, iron, magnesium, sodium, sulphur and 17 forms of amino acids.
1.1) Green Blood Therapy
Green Blood Therapy is the use of wheat grass juice which has also been called the green blood. The wheat grass juice contains all the nutrients the body requires and is considered a complete food
1.2) Green Blood Therapy: Cure for Many Diseases
Wheat grass therapy is recommended for patients suffering from chronic diseases like Asthma, Atherosclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Joint pains, TB, Constipation, Hypertension, Diabetes, Bronchitis, Insomnia, Eczema, Sterility, Hemorrhage, Obesity and Flatulence. It is also useful in the treatment of cancer.
2) Method Of Preparation
The method of extracting the grass juice Place the fresh wheat grass, soon after cutting it, on a platform or in a pounding basic and crush it well. Then wrap them in a clean and thin piece of cloth and strain the juice out of it. A plastic strainer could also be used for this purpose. If the magnetically treated water is added to it while crushing it, the extraction of juice will be in a greater quantity with its effectiveness is also strengthened. This wheat grass can be also crushed in the electric juicer or mixer also.
3) Wheat Grass and Its Nutritional Values.
3.1) Wheatgrass juice is crude chlorophyll and can be taken orally and as a colon implant without toxic side effects. Chlorophyll is the basis of all plant life.
3.2) Wheatgrass is high in oxygen like all green plants that contain chlorophyll. The brain and all body tissues function at an optimal level in a highly-oxygenated environment.
3.3) Chlorophyll is anti-bacterial and can be used inside and outside the body as a healer.
3.4) Chlorophyll (wheatgrass) rebuilds the bloodstream. Studies of various animals have shown chlorophyll to be free of any toxic reaction. The red cell count was returned to normal within 4 to 5 days of the administration of chlorophyll, even in those animals which were known to be extremely anaemia or low in red cell count.
3.5) Dr. Ann Wigmore had been helping people get well from chronic disorders for 30 years using wheatgrass.
3.6) Liquid chlorophyll gets into the tissues, refines them and makes them over.
3.7) Wheatgrass juice is a superior detoxification agent compared to carrot juice and other fruits and vegetables. Dr. Earp-Thomas, associate of Ann Wilmore, says that 15 pounds of wheatgrass is the equivalent of 350 pounds of carrot, lettuce, celery and so forth.
3.8) Liquid chlorophyll washes drug deposits from the body.
3.9) Chlorophyll neutralizes toxins in the body.
3.10) Chlorophyll improves blood sugar problems.
3.11) In the American Journal of Surgery, 1940, Benjamin Ruskin, M.D. recommends chlorophyll for its antiseptic benefits. The article suggests the following clinical uses for chlorophyll to clear up foul smelling odors, neutralize strep infections, heal wounds, hasten skin grafting, cure chronic sinusitis, overcome chronic inner-ear inflammation and infection, reduce varicose veins and heal leg ulcers, eliminate impetigo and other scabby eruptions, heal rectal sores, successfully treat inflammation of the uterine cervix, get rid of parasitic vaginal infections, reduce typhoid fever, and cure advanced pyorrhea in many cases.
3.12) A small amount of wheatgrass juice in the human diet prevents tooth decay.
3.13) Drink wheatgrass juice for skin problems such as eczema or psoriasis.

3.17) Wheatgrass juice is great for constipation and keeping the bowels open. It is high in magnesium.
3.18) Dr. Bircher, a research scientist, called chlorophyll 'concentrated sun power'. He believes that chlorophyll increases the function of the heart, affects the vascular system, the intestines, the uterus and the lungs.
3.19) According to Dr. Bircher, nature uses chlorophyll (wheatgrass) as a body cleanser, re-builder and
neutralizer of toxins.
3.20) Wheatgrass juice can dissolve the scars that are formed in the lungs from breathing acid gasses. The effect of carbon monoxide is minimized since chlorophyll increases hemoglobin production.
3.21) Wheatgrass juice is great for blood disorders of all kinds.
3.22) The pH (hydrogen molecules) value of human blood and Wheatgrass both is about 7 (alkaline) & is therefore quickly absorbed in the blood and is highly beneficial.
Life saving substances:
A. Vitamin A: It enhances the skin luster and provides glow to the outer skin and makes it disease free. It helps to cure the black spots and blemishes below the eyes and improves the eyesight. It is also helpful in checking the eyes, nose, and throat disorders. It nourishes hair and is helpful in fighting the problems of pollution. Vitamin A is essential for normal growth and development, good eyesight, and reproduction.
B. Vitamin B: It aids digestion. It is helpful in the treatment of digestive disorders, mental, depression, insomnia, premature aging and anorexia.
C. Vitamin C: Vitamin C is usually associated with citrus fruits, such as lemons, limes and oranges. However, ounce for ounce, wheatgrass contains more vitamin C than an orange. A powerful antioxidant, vitamin C is helpful for recovering from sickness (including the common cold) and preventing disease (such as scurvy it is a vital substance for healthy gums and teeth and maintenance of bones. It is essential for health and vitality and healing of sores and wounds. It is also a natural source for antibiotic elements
D. Vitamin E: It dilates the capillaries and enables free flow of the blood. It is helpful for the women during pregnancy, it prevents abortion and it is a helpful substance in the treatment of sexual impotency, diabetes, cancer, heart disorders and dysmenorrheal etc. Without enough of this fat-soluble vitamin, we would face muscle degeneration, sterility, and slower healing of wounds and infections. Vitamin E, an antioxidant and fertility vitamin is also a protector of the heart.
E. Vitamin K and B-complex vitamins: Wheatgrass contains a number of other important vitamins. It's rich in vitamin E, vitamin K and B-complex vitamins. Wheatgrass is also a source of vitamin B-17, also known as amygdaline, which some studies suggest can help ward off cancer. In addition to these vitamins, wheatgrass contains 17 amino acids and 92 different minerals the human body uses and needs. The nutrients in wheatgrass are also said to assist in fighting cancer and repairing cellular damage of the lungs.
F. MSM: MSM is a sulfur bearing molecule found in all living organisms destroyed in processed food. It helps our body use vitamins, helps to reduce allergies, helps detoxify the body and increase oxygen, and takes out inflammation. That also contains in wheat grass juice.
G. Proteins and Amino acids: Proteins are essential for muscular strength and physical elegance. Plasmas, hormones and antibodies are obtained through proteins. Amino acids aid digestion, blood formation and provide potency to the heart.
H. Enzymes: Enzymes are the digestive elements. The substances in the Wheat grass juice are helpful for dyspepsia. These are helpful for digestion, building a healthy body and counteract the premature aging.
I. Minerals:
Iron: Iron is an essential element for life. Iron deficiency creates shortage of hemoglobin in blood. It is helpful in pregnancy, for excessive sweating, pale complexion, laziness and lethargy, and insomnia. Inorganic iron is often constipating, but the iron salts in wheatgrass have no side effects.
Calcium: Calcium is the prime instigator of vital activity. It strengthens the bones, it provides alkaline for the children and vitality for old. It is helpful in treatment of the diseases like hemorrhage, distension of body, slow movements, coldness and varicose veins etc. Wheatgrass is a good source of calcium, which helps build strong bones and teeth and regulates heartbeat, in addition to acting as a buffer to restore balance to blood pH.
Potassium: Helpful for the radiance and luster of youth, hypertension, dementia, palpitation, tiredness, suicidal instincts and depression etc. Potassium, called the youth mineral by some nutritionists, helps maintain a smooth mineral balance, and balanced body weight. It also tones the muscles, firms the skin, and promotes overall beauty.
Zinc: Helpful in the prostate gland disorders and nourishes hair.
Sodium: Sodium regulates the extra cellular fluid volume. It also regulates the acid-base equilibrium and maintains proper water balance in the body.
Magnesium: You will find about as much magnesium in wheatgrass as in broccoli, Brussels’ sprouts, beets, carrots, or celery. Magnesium is important for good muscle function and for bowel health, as it aids eliminative functions. I believe that this mineral is also responsible for drawing fat out of the liver, in cases of fatty infiltration there.
J. Nutrients and other substances: These provide nutrition to the tendons. These are the elements which are resistant to the disorders related to jaundice, menstruation, hydrocele, dysentery, mental debility, tooth problems, evacuation of bowels and the cold related problems.
K. Chlorophyll: The curative and prophylactic elements. The wheat grass juice is a source of the alkaline elements, prophylactic and curative elements. It also supplements proteins, carbohydrates and fat. The lacteal substances found in it are considered to be an effective element and the only remedy for curing cancer. Chlorophyll the most important element of the wheat grass is contained in the cells called chloroplasts. Chloroplasts produce nutritious elements with the help of sunshine. Dr. Brusher calls it as “Concentrated Solar Energy”. The chemical formation of the wheat grass juice has a striking similarity with the chemical formation of the human blood. The pH factor of the human “blood is 7.4. The pH factor of the wheat grass juice is also 7.4 that is the reason why it is quickly absorbed in the blood. We all know that human blood contains a substance called hemoglobin it also obstructs their regeneration or reproduction. The physicians who have successfully tried this therapy on a number of diseases such as skin diseases, T.B., heart diseases, brain hemorrhage, ulcer, varicose veins, inflammation of the intestine, arteriosclerosis, osteomyelitis, etc have found it quite effective.
Internal Rejuvenation. Wheat protein, which comprises up to eight per cent of the grain, has a special benefit as it has eight of the essential amino acids in delicately balanced proportions. A complete internal rejuvenation takes place when Wheat protein is metabolized into health-building amino acids.

4) Diseases And Their Treatment
Wheat grass therapy is recommended for patients suffering from chronic diseases like Asthma, Atherosclerosis, Parkinson's disease, Joint pains, TB, Constipation, Hypertension, Diabetes, Bronchitis, Insomnia, Eczema, Sterility, Hemorrhage, Obesity and Flatulence. It is also useful in the treatment of cancer. Wheat grass can be directly taken by chewing or in the form of juice. For better results it can be taken in the form of juice. This is the last alternative when all other therapies fail to cure.
4.1) Diseases related to Blood and the Blood Circulation System
Included among this category are anemia, high blood pressure, atherosclerosis, internal hemorrhage, clotting and the like. Regular intake of the wheat grass juice works wonders especially in the cases of anemia for which no other therapy has such quick cure. Having 200 ml juice twice a day is recommended.
4.1.1) Deficiency of Hemoglobin.  Wheat grass juice is termed as a substitute for natural red blood cells. The wheat Grass possesses all the compositions that Hemoglobin possesses. It is also known as “Green Blood” because of its close structural similarity to Hemoglobin. Wheat Grass contains many nutritious and prophylactic ingredients.
4.1.2) Increase Of Uric Acid In Blood. The increase of uric acid in the blood caused complications such as swelling of the body, digestion trouble, insomnia, etc. He approached Grime’s Nature Cure Center for treatment and could not believe that Wheatgrass therapy could help him. He decided to give it a try and was amazed at the excellent results. Within one month all his problems were gone and he became perfectly normal.
4.2) Diseases related to the Respiratory System
Common cold, asthma, bronchitis and all the related disease get cured with the regular regimen of this wheat grass juice therapy. Common cold generally disappears in a couple of days only. Asthma is a dreadfully stubborn disease responding to almost no given therapy. But wheat grass juice taken twice a day creates wonders in this case also.
4.3) Digestive diseases
Wheat grass therapy is most effective in the case of digestive disorders i.e. it shows its quick effect. Constipation, indigestion, flatulent, nausea, vomiting, acidity, ulcers in the stomach and intestines, smelling on the intestines and worms are some of the prominent diseases. It is an excellent laxative In the severity of rectal bleeding. No serious side effects were found Grass juice appeared effective and safe as a single or as added support to treat active ulcerative colitis. This enema is very helpful in disorders of the colon, mucous and ulcerative colitis, chronic constipation and bleeding piles.
4.4) Teeth and Gum related diseases
4.4.1) Tooth Disorders
. Wheat is valuable in the prevention and cure of pyorrhea. It takes time to eat wheat and as it is generally taken with other foods, it compels the chewing of other foods also. Wheat grass juice acts as an excellent mouth wash for sore throats and pyorrhea. It also prevents tooth decay and tooth aches.
4.4.2) CURE FOR Toothache. The juice of wheat grass acts as an excellent mouthwash for tooth decay and cures toothaches. Wheat grass can be chewed with beneficial results.
4.5) Diseases of Joints
Included in this category are swelling on the joints, pain in the joints, osteoarthritis, bone rotting The efficacy of wheatgrass in the management of bone and joint disorders is due to its powerful anti-inflammatory effect. It can significantly help reduce pain, swelling and inflammation, and check subcutaneous and cutaneous bleeding quickly, thereby enhancing the natural healing process.
4.5.1) In osteoarthritis patients frequently report warmth in and around the joint a short while after application. Usually this is followed by increased mobility of the joint i.e. within 10 to 20 minutes. This can be quite dramatic. As with any “natural” product, it pays to persist with chronic conditions for at least three months before ceasing treatment.
4.5.2) Fractures If closed fracture, apply immediately to suspected fracture site before splinting. Apply around the wound if skin broken. If plaster already applied, smear WG over skin at both ends of plaster 3 times a day. Can produce marked reduction in swelling, bruising & pain & hasten healing.

Apply every 3 or 4 hours. Maintain hyperuricemic therapy. Can facilitate anti-inflammatory effect of hyperuricemics & shorten attack. Continue daily application to assist prevention of further attacks.
4.6) Skin diseases
As the wheat grass juice is an active blood purifying agent, it is very effective in the treatment of skin diseases. It has been found to be curing eczema, ache (pimples), boils, cuts and wounds, bites and burns.
4.6.1) GANGRENE. The Wheatgrass powder / juice was poured over the wounds thrice everyday. Initially he was kept on a diet of Naturopathy juices of various fruits and vegetables miraculously, his situation improved and to everybody’s surprise he was cured of the gangrene in about 10 months time. The kidney function and Hemoglobin level in the blood also improved up to normal.
4.6.2) SKIN ITCHING. Severe itching on the skin all over the body used to cause wounds. The treatment he was undergoing started showing side effects such as improper bowel movement, gases in stomach and loss of appetite. At this stage, he started the Wheatgrass therapy. Within a month the itching reduced and with it the digestion system also improved. In three months the patient was cured of his problem without any side effects.
4.6.3) Reduce Eczema Symptoms. Wheatgrass juice is an excellent choice for a drink as it helps in blood purification. Drinking wheatgrass on a regular basis will also ensure you of a normal blood pressure. Hence, wheatgrass is said to be able to "cure" blood disorders of all kinds. Wheatgrass is also known to provide the essential enzymes that the body needs for optimum health. Enzymes, in turn, are very helpful in strengthening the body's immune system and in your fight against eczema.
4.7) Kidney related ailments
Included in the section are the problem of stone, inflammation of the urinary bladder, and inflammation of the kidneys. Along with the wheat grass juice if water treated with magnets is also taken the results are better and the cure is faster.
4.8) Disease connected with the reproductive organs
Sexual debility and dysmenorrhea are the two disease/disorders which this therapy can cure with comparative ease. Taking the wheat juice orally and applying the parts of the soft portion of the wheat grass on the private parts help greatly cure the disease.
4.9) Ear diseases
In relieving ear pain and curing the problem of septic discharge from the ear wheat grass juice has shown very good results. In addition to taking the wheat grass orally, some juice should be dropped in the ears to cure ear diseases.
4.10) Anticancer
4.10.1) Myelodysplastic Syndrome (Preleukemia)
. The effect of wheat grass juice in reducing Ferrite (Iron) level in myelodysplastic syndrome (Preleukemia) and also do the biochemical analysis of the wheat grass juice. Wheatgrass juice is a MUST for Cancer patients of any type whether you are operated, done Chemo/Radiation or with no Allopathy treatment. SOD, Selenium, laetrile (B17) in Wheatgrass kills Cancer cells and Chlorophyll (a green blood) increases your white & red blood cells counts for faster cure.
4.10.2) On Breast Cancer. Bone marrow (where new blood cells are made) damage caused by chemotherapy can become life threatening. White blood cell count and red blood cell count can become abnormally low. There are medications to help build the blood cell count, but they come with negative side effects and increased costs. It was found that drinking the green healing juice helped produce healthier blood levels while receiving the chemotherapy thus decreasing the need for blood building medications. Wheatgrass juice was found to not diminish effectiveness of chemotherapy. These preliminary results need confirmation in a phase III study.
4.10.3) Reduces Skin Toxicity in X-Ray. Deep X-ray therapy for the treatment of breast cancer can be fraught with complications and adverse reactions called "skin toxicity". Essentially, this means that after treatment, the skin becomes inflamed, tends to blister and break down leading to pain, difficulty in management and wound infection. Because of skin toxicity, the patient has to wait much longer between treatments for the skin to recover sufficiently to allow the next treatment. This in turn tends to reduce the patient's chances of recovery.
4.11) Treatment of migraine
Migraines are severe, recurrent headaches that can cause debilitating pain for hours on end. While there is no cure for a migraine, home remedies and life-style changes can go a long way to reduce symptoms. A highly digestible, concentrated source of nutrients, wheatgrass is a commonly used supplement for natural healing for all kinds of illness, including migraines. Wheatgrass contains chemicals shown to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties (helpful for overall health and migraines). Wheatgrass treatment usually involves daily consumption of a small amount of freshly juiced wheatgrass.
4.12) Thalassemia
Whether 'green blood' method is not a cure for thalassemia. What we have found among patients taking this therapy is that the interval between blood transfusions has increased to 25-30 days. Earlier, thalassemia patients had to have a transfusion once in two weeks. However, we are still studying the efficacy of this treatment," Dr Ram K Maratha of the pediatrics’ department of PGI told The Times of India. Grass juice is the juice extracted from the pulp of wheatgrass and has been used as a general purpose health tonic for several years. Several patients in the thalassemia (a hereditary form of anemia, occurring chiefly in people of Mediterranean origin, marked by the abnormal synthesis of hemoglobin and a consequent shortened life span of red blood cells) unit began consuming wheatgrass juice after anecdotal accounts of beneficial effects on transfusion requirements.
These encouraging experiences prompted evaluations on the effect of wheatgrass juice on transfusion requirements in patients with transfusion dependent beta thalassemia.

Very first I respectfully acknowledge this work to my Parents [Zanklal Mujoriya (Father) & Rajani Mujoriya (Mother)], my sweet wife Jyoti and Family Members who made me genius in field of education. It is said that accomplishments must be credited to those who have put up the foundations of the particular chore: here I pay tributes to my parents for lifting me up till this phase of life. I am also thankful to my dearest brother Pravin, Amol & for their encouragement, love and support which have boosted me morale. Thanking you all.

Nobody is trying to be rude to you.  We have a lot of Christian people on here, including myself.   We also have many  people of other faiths who believe in the Lord too. We try to discuss the different things we are going through, and help each other with advice and praying for each other. We have built some great friendships, just by listening and trying to help others to get through their everyday ordeals.

You can refer to a certain website for people to log onto if they wish to check it out, but to print out volume after volume of something you want to share is not necessary, like the benefits of wheatgrass.  I am sure there are a  lot of people who are not interested in a big lesson on Natural Healing.  I think your missing the whole concept of this discussion board.  If they are interested in your subject, they will log onto the website that you posted to learn more.

You are more than welcome to share and join into our conversations, as you might have something beneficial to help somebody else who is trying to cope with their diagnosis or what they are experiencing in general.   We try to bless each other in different ways by letting each other know we are there for them no matter what is going on.

Hi Billie:  I wish the best of everything to this family member of CrisCris, but yet she never tells us how this person is doing with their Gleevec.  Treating them with natural foods, plus their TKI could work wonders.  I think we would like to know how this person, who I assume has a name is doing in their journey with their battle with CML.

      I also hope your doing good, and Ron also.

Thanks for sharing this video with us Trey. Wheatgrass fights against many diseases including Leukemia. I copied and pasted below, from my comment above.

  • anti-cancer
  • anti-leukemia
  • anti-inflammatory
  • anti-oxidant

It's been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years, and today is popular among the alternative medicine crowd as a way to prevent cancer and stop leukemia, among other things.

Trey, I have copied this from the web artofhealthyliving.blogspot...wheat-grass-cure-from-leukemia-blood

Here is a mans story who was cured from leukemia using wheatgrass.

Wheat Grass - Cure from leukemia (blood-cancer)

A patient suffering from leukemia (blood-cancer) was in a pitiable condition. His body was very weak, was unable to stand and his face was very pale and white. He wasn't even abl to stand. Medical Speciliast were of the opinion that he would not be able to survive for > a year or 2. Inspite of medicines and careful treatment, his health only deteriorated. Few months passed in agony for the entire family, when doctors told his wife, he could hardly live for a few days. On hearing this, patient collapsed in the car.

Later his wife was told about wheatgrass-juice treatment, which she started giving it regularly (like a habit) to her husband. His wife began to sow wheat at her garden. She gave him cupful of wheatgrass-juice, 4-6 times per day. Gradually his health began to improve. After 6 months, that patient is no longer a weak and pale but his body now was full of agility, energy and vitality and with lustrous eyes. When his wife took him to his doctors who had formerly examined him, were shocked. They carefully studied and re-studied his records and stared at him in astonishment. Finally they admitted that he was perfectly healthy now, but didn't asked how his health improved.

There was no trace of leukemia. 5 cancer experts examined him minutely during the next 4 months, and didn't understand how he got miraculously cured, ofcourse never admitted the fact that wheatgrass-juice had effected this cure. All experts had authoritatively declared that leukemia was incurable, for a lady's determination and omnipotent nature, nothing is impossible.

I believe that all things are possible with God, but its his will not ours which is why some people do well with their treatments and others struggle.  God works in mysterious ways, and the end result is what he wants to happen will happen.

How is your family member doing with their 6 glasses of wheatjuice a day?  Please let us know how their blood work has improved to get them closer to a undetected level of PCRU with the use of juicing.

You have not said much about how they are responding with treatment of their Gleevec.  I hope they are stable in their counts etc. I wish them the best.

We are not up to 6 glasses of wheatgrass at the moment. We are increasing the use of wheatgrass into the diet. The gleevec 400mg was started in the end of Jan 2012. April blood work showed a complete hematological response. June blood work showed FISH was NEGATIVE for BCR/ABL. The last PCR in September showed 0.23
We have been praying and asking the Lord for his guidance for healing. The doctor said to continue to do what we have been doing. once we had stopped the diet and continued with gleevec therapy, the numbers either went up higher or didnt continuie to drop. Only with the continue use of adding fresh juice and now added wheatgrass with fresh sprouts, are we seeing the best results. When using the gleevec alone, the numbers were dropping much slower, and at one point went up really high, only while we temp stopped the juicing for about a month.
The Lord said he was going to heal my family member from leukemia and HE is showing us the steps to achieve healing through juicing and the use of wheatgrass and sprouts. As the Lord is in full control of my family members leukemia, we are waiting patiently along with following everything that the Lord wants us to do and use for healing from leaukemia. The Lord is also giving me passion to help others who are suffering deom cancer and disease. I will continue to post and help others as the Lord leads me to. I understand maybe not everyone is interested in reading long post, but i think that should be up to me on how i post, long or short. It should not be up to others to tell myself or others on how short or long their post should be. I myself had read some lengthy post here on this site. What ever suits the individual who is posting, again it is their post. It will be up to the individual(the reader) if they want to read a long/short post, that could save their life and heal them.

Wheatgrass is one of many so called 'superfoods' that make quite astonishing claims.  Personally I would like to see some scientific evidence rather than 'anecdotal' evidence.  For example, do we have any supporting evidence from oncologists that the 'cure' actually happened, or even that the person in the story actually exists?  And if so we should consider whether the wheatgrass itself or the BELIEF that it would help, affected the body.  The Placebo effect is very powerful.  There is a large body of evidence demonstrating that our psychological and emotional state play a part in what happens during illness. There is an area of psychology known as psycho-neuro-immunology that deals with this.  Stress is the worst thing, and it is quite destructive to our health.  Unfortunately it is very difficult not to become overly stressed in today's world, and telling someone who is already ill not to stress about it is unhelpful. 

Anyway, just wanted to give you my thoughts on the matter - at the end of the day, do whatever works for YOU

Excellent response, Alex! Furthermore, this anecdotal, non-scientific "Belief System" should not be repeatedly fostered upon others who may be searching for legitimate answers. Frank

Just for reference, my response to Gleevec was pretty much the same and I never had any Wheatgrass.  I'm not commenting on whether or not Wheatgrass is of any value, but you have described a very typical response for someone taking Gleevec.
