Other Avery books by Ann Wigmore



Wheatgrass juice is fast becoming the most popular “new” health and diet food in America. In actuality, however, this sweet green juice pressed from young wheat plants is not new—it was first applied to human health by Ann Wigmore, founder of the Hippocrates Health Institute, over thirty years ago. Since then, more than half a million glasses of wheatgrass juice have been consumed at the Hippocrates Institute in Boston alone!

Ann Wigmore has used wheatgrass juice on a daily basis for three decades. At the age of seventy-five, she is the epitome of health and vitality. She is constantly on the go, lecturing, traveling, and writing—often about wheatgrass juice. For as she points out in this book, fresh wheatgrass juice is an ideal food for anyone who wishes to prevent illness and improve his or her health.

While wheatgrass juice is rapidly increasing in popularity, many people lack an awareness of its proper role in a healthful lifestyle. The Wheatgrass Book is the most complete and authoritative guide to the subject of using wheatgrass juice for maximum benefit. The fresh juice of young wheat plants is a storehouse of natural vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll, enzymes, and life energy. In this book, you will learn how wheatgrass juice helps to nourish every cell of the body, and cleanse them of toxins. It is perhaps the safest and most effective way to healthfully supplement your diet.

During the last sixteen years I have had the privilege of administrating several popular wholistic health centers in the United States and Europe. As executive director of the Hippocrates Institute, I have witnessed many complete reversals of symptoms. I attribute these to the remarkable regenerative power of wheatgrass juice and live foods (the uncooked sprouts, greens, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds that are part of the Hippocrates Diet and Health Program).

A few years ago, with the encouragement of India’s former prime minister, Morarji Desai, and the assistance of prominent physicians such as Dr. G. Datey, M.D., Ann traveled to India to establish a number of healing camps, where she administered wheatgrass and live foods to hundreds of sick and malnourished men, women, and children. She has published dozens of articles reporting the amazing rate of recovery experienced by many of these people.

In the United States, the effectiveness of wheatgrass and live foods in preventing illness has been praised by Dr. Arthur Robinson, the director of the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine. In 1978 at the Linus Pauling Institute, Dr. Robinson completed a research project in which wheatgrass and live foods were fed to mice with squamos cell carcinoma. In Dr. Robinson’s words, “The results were spectacular. Living foods [including wheatgrass] alone decreased the incidence and severity of cancer lesions by about 75 percent. This result was better than that of any other nutritional program that was tried.” Dr. Robinson is presently conducting a research project involving Hippocrates Health Institute guests.

Over the years, many guests at the Hippocrates Institute have requested that Ann write a concise book about wheatgrass juice. I am happy to say that The Wheatgrass Book has been worth waiting for. It is filled with practical information about growing and using wheatgrass. In addition, this book summarizes the most interesting medical research on wheatgrass juice. I’m sure you’ll enjoy reading The Wheatgrass Book as much as I have, and I’m sure that your first refreshing drink of wheatgrass juice will be your start toward a more satisfying and healthful lifestyle.

The Wheatgrass Way to Super Health and Beauty

We walk over it, lie down on it, mow it once a week during the summer, and knock little white balls into holes cut in it, but the thought of eating grass seems absurd. Unless you happen to be the winner of the Kentucky Derby, or Aunt Nellie’s prize heifer, you probably have never entertained the thought of chewing on a bunch of grass. And if you haven’t visited the Hippocrates Health Institute, chances are that you have not tried wheatgrass juice.

In this book I hope to persuade you to consider using wheatgrass and its juice as food, medicine, and an overall tonic for various ailments. Whether you suffer from chronic fatigue, sinusitis, ulcers, or a more serious illness like cancer, wheatgrass chlorophyll extracted from seven-day-old wheat sprouts may help you even where other medicines have failed. Of course, nothing can replace a sound diet, exercise, and a positive attitude in keeping you in top shape. But wheatgrass can give you energy and strength to help you gain better control of your health.

Chlorophyll, the green juice of grasses, has been valued since biblical times. Grass has been used as a folk medicine remedy by many people around the world. During the First World War, I began to learn about its remarkable healing properties. My grandmother used grasses to heal wounded soldiers in the European village where I was born. I came to America to live with my parents while I was still a child. It wasn’t until about thirty years later, during the early 1950s, that the memories of my grandmother’s use of grasses and other plants resurfaced as a result of personal health problems.

I began my own experimentation with wheatgrass and other grasses on animals. Wheatgrass proved to be the fastest and easiest variety of grass to grow. The wheatberries used to grow it were (and still are) inexpensive and easily obtained. Moreover, wheatgrass turned out to be favored by my pets. It worked miracles for their well-being (I will show you how you can use it to help your pets live longer and in better health in Chapter 8), yet I still doubted its usefulness for human health. So I expanded my study of grasses, focusing on wheatgrass in particular.

I contacted my friend and associate Dr. G. H. Earp Thomas for his expert opinion of the potential usefulness of wheatgrass for human health. A soil and plant scientist, Dr. Thomas had prior knowledge of grasses and chlorophyll. Yet after a few weeks of chemical analysis and library research, he was quite surprised to find that wheatgrass contained many vital nutrients which he felt could serve as regenerative and protective factors in human health. According to his findings, fresh wheatgrass juice was theoretically capable of sustaining human health and life for weeks or even months at a time. Dr. Thomas also came across some research papers written by Dr. Charles Schnabel, who advocated the use of young wheat and other grasses in animal and human nutrition. Schnabel estimated that fifteen pounds of wheatgrass was equal in protein and overall nutritional value to three hundred and fifty pounds of ordinary garden vegetables. I will speak more about the nutritional content of wheatgrass in Chapter 5.

The real proving ground was my own body, which was sickly and weak after twenty years of living and eating as an average American. A few weeks after I started chewing and juicing young blades of fresh wheatgrass, and eating fresh sprouts and greens, a festering case of colitis that I had suffered with for months began to improve. The problem, which is particularly difficult to remedy with conventional medical treatments, eventually cleared up entirely.

My energy level soared and I felt well again. I knew that wheatgrass was a powerful invigorator of the body. To prove to myself that it would also help others get well I began...

Format: Taschenbuch
Since reading this book I find myself taking advantage of juice bars that serve wheatgrass shots. Mind you I look at the age and ask the type of grass they are serving but boy do I feel confident after having read this book that it can only make me feel better. I don't generally feel any sort of rush from having ingested wheat grass but you do have a sense of overall health after awhile. It could be psychological or the actual wheatgrass but which ever I have seen a definite improvement since following some of the options given in the book.

Ann Wigmore gives a thorough analysis of the incredible powers of wheatgrass and how it can improve your health. I must say this book changed my life: wheatgrass juice will improve your health, boost immunity, aid in weight loss, and more. I even feed it to my parrots, and they are ten times healthier now--I haven't lost a single baby bird since I started feeding the parents wheatgrass. This inexpensive of book will save you oodles of money--far fewer medical bills!

the fountain of youth is green 25. Mai 2005
Von Alejandra Vernon - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Ann Wigmore, the author of many books on the value of a raw food diet, initially found herself at 50 years old with many debilitating physical problems, and remembered how her grandmother had used grasses to heal the soldiers in WWI, and decided to experiment with their curative properties. Wigmore was a vibrant 76 when she wrote this book in 1985, with her weight the same as it was in her youth, and her hair returned to its natural brown. She explains everything you need to know about wheatgrass, and there is a lot to know about this most basic of all plants.

In the early chapters she notes the scientific data, Chapter 6 is about what wheatgrass can do for you, including weight control by "speeding up blood circulation and metabolic rate". Chapter 7 has instructions on how to grow it and juice it, and in Chapter 8, the many uses, including some nice mixtures to juice up a tasty and nutritious "green drink".

Wigmore explains "free radicals", and the damage they do to our cells, enzymes, and the power of chlorophyll, which is plentiful in wheatgrass. It is also an excellent source of Vitamin C, Vitamin A (in the form of carotene), B Complex, Vitamin E, and minerals like calcium and zinc.

Wigmore describes how to set up an indoor growing area, but for those of us who live in all-year-around temperate climates like Southern California, can like me set up a growing corner on a patio. I use roasting pans, buy my wheat at the local health food store (the red wheat is delicious, and very inexpensive), and use good soil.

Wheatgrass is powerful, so it's good to know all you can about it before using it, and adhere to the warnings to start with small quantities.

An invaluable book for anyone interested in joining "The Green Revolution", to improve their health, need less sleep, and enjoy the many other advantages of wheatgrass, and if you have cats, they'll like to nibble on it too.

Where has this book been all my life! 17. Juli 2001
Von JoanneLDS - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book was extrememly helpful in validating my beliefs that natural is always the better way to go especially when it comes to something as important as our bodies. Ann is very thorough in her explanations of the benefits of wheatgrass and how to grow your own as well as use it in many beneficial ways to improve the body's immune system. Her credentials are great - she knows whereof she speaks. I learned a great deal about the benefits of raw living foods as opposed to cooked food and how the living enzymes in our food are destroyed at certain levels of heat. It's a little frustrating though to learn that most of the things in the supermarket (except for the produce dept.) don't give my body much nutrition at all. But the good news is there's many authors out there trying to make the transition easier for those of us that want to try to take better care of ourselves. To them, I say a big thanks!

Green is Great 27. April 2006
Von kadydid - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I had read several accounts of Ann Wigmore's life changing experience with wheatgrass and other fresh fruits, so I decided to give it a try. With my first wheatgrass kit, I got this book. I was so impressed, that I gave it to a friend of my girlfriend, who was dying from cancer along with a tray of wheatgrass and my old hand juicer. A year later, she's still around and I'm buying myself another copy of Ann's book.

Von J. Sandoval - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This book was very informative in the health aspect. Ann Wigmore made the medicinal qualities of wheatgrass very easy to follow, but the actual growing process was very brief. I was looking to start growing wheatgrass in my kitchen. I started small batches here and there. I ran in to different problem's with all of them. Mainly white and green mold around the roots and discoloration in the wheatgrass. The book was quite brief on problem solving.

Overall this book is very useful and inspiring if you're just looking to learn the health benefits of wheatgrass. I would consider purchasing a more informative book or gather information online if you are interested in growing it yourself on a larger scale. A process you should consider. It is inexpensive after the initial start up costs, and so important to one's health.

I do recommend her book 'The Sprouting Book. A great starting book as well. The two books are inspiring and go hand and hand together.
