Consume Better to Kill Sugar Cravings 0

Lately, I’ve been getting serious about quitting my sugar addiction. In the past, I’ve gone a couple days abstaining from sugar, feeling pretty good about myself until the cravings cause me to dive back into eating an abundance of sweets with a vengeance. Sugar cravings are the leading cause of people falling off of their diet wagons, according to Dr. Axe, and I can attest to that. The craving for sugar is a powerful one, and working to kill that craving, may be the key to helping people get control of their sugar consumption for good. Turns out a balanced...

3 (Fun and Easy) Health Habits for the New Year! 0

Growing and Juicing Wheatgrass If you’re not familiar with growing and juicing wheatgrass, I’m sure you’ve at least heard about the practice. It may seem strange to some folks at first to be juicing and drinking trays of grass grown in a small amount of soil or on a growth medium. But once folks discover the nutritional benefits and feel the difference within themselves after trying it, it doesn’t seem so strange at all. Wheatgrass juice is known for being a powerhouse of nutrients that promotes healing and a general sense of well-being. Immediately after juicing, the juice is alive...

Improving Productivity Through Sprouts

Improving Productivity Through Sprouts 0

In our modern world, the lunch hour is one of the easier meals to consume lavish starchy foods, which are full of carbs and refined sugars, such as fries and pastas. “We are going out to lunch!” at the office soon turns into “Who’s ready for a nap?” Consuming these foods may be delicious and fun, but they actually lead to a sluggish afternoon and evening. As we know, our bodies use up vital energy to digest food, converting it into usable caloric energy in hopes to not only replenish the energy lost but to exceed it. Foods that are...

Why Vegetables Are So Good For You

Why Vegetables Are So Good For You 0

We all know that vegetables are good for us, right? I’m sure we all remember our parents telling us again and again that we should finish the vegetables on our plates because they contain fiber, vital vitamins, and minerals that our bodies need. But it seems that vegetables and fruits do even more than just providing us with essential nutrients. They provide us with powerful antioxidants, combatting free radicals, and recent studies by Dr. Mark Mattson, Dr. Leonard Guarente, and Dr. Toren Finkel show that vegetables and fruits contain toxins that actually improve metabolic function, helping the body to prepare...

Many people know instinctively that food in its natural state is healthier for the body. In the fast food world where we live, this knowledge/instinct has almost become lost. It is only found deep in books of the highest order and unless we do some minimal research, we will never realize its importance both physically and spiritually. Why are live foods healthier? Because we know God made them? Because light causes them to grow? We went through the Dark Ages and emerged into what we know today….not knowing that technology had not brought us any closer to the understanding of...

Detoxifying Properties of Wheatgrass

Detoxifying Properties of Wheatgrass 0

Wheatgrass juice has the great ability to detoxify the body almost immediately after beginning to drink it on a daily basis. For this reason, caution should be used in the amount taken the first few days and weeks. As the body begins to eliminate toxins, old drug deposits, poisons, the body feels like it is experiencing the flu. There are headaches, muscle aches, fatigue, etc. depending on the toxicity of the body. This usually lasts about a week. The second week is when the body begins to feel a little better. After the detox, the chlorophyll in the grass juice...

Colloidal Minerals: Fact or Fiction?

Colloidal Minerals: Fact or Fiction? 0

Colloidal minerals and trace elements have been stirring quite a bit of controversy recently. Some say they have nutritional benefits to the health, and others say they are useless, and potentially even hazardous. As the dictionary states, colloidal minerals are "aggregates of atoms or molecules in a finely divided state dispersed in a gaseous, liquid or solid medium and resisting sedimentation, diffusion and filtration." What this means is that colloidal minerals are stable aggregates, in other words, the colloids are extremely atomic. Since they are aggregates at least two atoms, the colloid still contains a minimum of two ions even...

Trace Minerals & Help For Migraines 0

Eighteen percent of American women and six percent of American men suffer from migraines. Magnesium and trace minerals may help with this and other health disorders. Unbeknownst to a surprisingly large audience of nutritionally uneducated Americans, insufficient mineral density in the food we eat is a major contributor to disease and dysfunction. This silently growing deficit has not resulted from a quantitative problem, as there is rarely a recognizable food shortage in this country, but rather a qualitative one. Trace elements and minerals are most prevalent in fresh produce and other organic food sources, not synthesized and manufactured foods. Unfortunately...

The holidays seem to be the busiest time of year for me! I need all the energy I can get, and all the extra holiday sweets and food doesn't seem to give that! So between those days of indulgence and food enjoyment, I would recommend starting your new year's dieting early with the addition of more raw foods (sprouts etc..) to your diet. In our August 2010 Newsletter, we reprinted an article about Bruce McVay, ultra distance runner. Bruce’s diet was already raw food. By adding wheatgrass juice to his diet he enhanced his running ability and especially his winning...

Health conscious consumers today are looking for more than wholesome, nutritious food to maintain good health, they also want to protect themselves from the ever-increasing number of toxins in our environment. While periodic use of internal cleansing and detoxification programs help to eliminate the body's toxic overload, the best solution is to gently detoxify our bodies every day through our diet. Therefore, optimal nutrition should include foods that not only supply us with all the nutrients necessary for cellular metabolism but foods that also help us detoxify daily. Unfortunately, thousands of toxic chemicals pervade our environment and continuously pose a...

Ann Wigmore, wheatgrass pioneer, spoke many times about the life force in the sprouted grasses, nuts, and seeds. Her contemporary, Edward Howell, who studied the life force (enzymes) in foods for over 66 years, spoke of the cook stove as being the chief enemy of modern man (Enzyme Nutrition by Edward Howell). People from all over the world came to Ann’s institute in Boston to learn the correct way to eat to regain their health-- eating and learning to grow and prepare a living food diet. Her diet consisted of wheatgrass juice, all kinds of greens such as sunflower and...

Our original passion for wheatgrass juice and the benefits of juicing wheatgrass comes from studying the life of Ann Wigmore and visiting her institute back in the early 90's. To find out more about the benefits, we suggest reading her book "The Wheatgrass Book". She goes into detail about the benefits of wheatgrass, juicing, and the living food diet. She also formed an institution called The Ann Wigmore institute, which is still in operation today.

When embarking upon a health regime, it is good to know the experiences of those who went before. Ann Wigmore has had many experiences and many letters of appreciation from people who attended her institute. Does it make any difference if the experience happened many years ago? No. Truth is always truth. For this reason, the experience is still valid. Living food is always living food. Wheatgrass is always wheatgrass. The results should be approximately the same. Why not exactly the same? Everyone’s body is different. Below you should find a letter from a Dr. Taylor to Ann Wigmore. We...

While at the Ann Wigmore Living Food Institute she stated that to get the most live enzymes from juicing you have to drink the juice within 6 minutes of juicing. The life force and vitality are at a peak right after juicing. Why are these enzymes so important, to answer this we turn to Dr. Edward Howell:...

The Essene Gospel of Peace Book Four is one of the most profound of these sources of...

Many people, when they hear about the living foods program of recapturing health and regenerating the body, instinctively know that it is true. When I first heard about Ann Wigmore and wheatgrass juice, I became enthusiastic about it, bought an electric wheatgrass juicer and began first purchasing and then growing my own wheatgrass. I had had chronic fatigue for many years and had tried almost every herb, vitamin, and healing modality available in health food stores. Later, I attended the Ann Wigmore Institute in Boston and then began growing wheatgrass commercially for juice bars and health food stores. At first,...

The Miracle of Trace Minerals

The Miracle of Trace Minerals 0

Add Trace Elements to your Soil with Azomite Trace Mineral Fertilizer! The challenge with the soil in which most of our food is grown is that it has been leached of most of its trace mineral content over the years. As modern farming techniques have evolved, most farms fertilize with NPK (Nitrogen, Phosphorous, Potassium), which will cheaply and dramatically increase crop yields. It is not cost effective for farmers to fertilize their crops with other trace minerals like selenium, calcium, copper, zinc and over 60 others that are needed by the human body for optimum health, so of course, they...

We recently had a question about growing wheatgrass in the winter. Very good question! Yes, you can grow wheatgrass during the winter, in fact, that is one of the major benefits! You can grow fresh organic wheatgrass all year round inside your home! Wheatgrass grows very well indoors, a 70-degree climate preferably. It will grow even if it gets as cold as 50 degrees, but it will grow very slow. It usually takes grass about 7-10 days to reach the perfect height for harvesting. Wheatgrass needs indirect sunlight. In other words, if you put it near a window you will...

February 13, 1999, was the day that forever changed how I live. As these stories often begin, I had a routine checkup scheduled with my doctor. I knew of nothing out of the ordinary with my health and had been living as I had always been living, wholly unconcerned. But what my doctor found that day made me rethink everything.

I should not have been surprised; my mother and sister both had cervical and breast cancers. But there...

The American diet is rich in proteins, carbohydrates, and fats but it is commonly poor in magnesium (Mg). Additionally, most supplements of vitamins and minerals, that are taken by many to assure adequate nutrition, provide Mg in only minimal amounts, if at all. Mg is a mineral that is essential for health in optimal quantities if we are to obtain full benefit from the foods we eat and from the supplements we take. Mg is needed by our bodies to activate numerous enzymes that control metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and electrolytes; to assist in the utilization of other essential minerals,...
