How Much Wheat Grass Juice to Drink?

The Happy Juicer

The Happy Juicer says, and I quote:

People new to taking wheatgrass should start by consuming 1oz of juice a day, then after a week build this up to 2oz a day (two 1 oz servings taken at different times of the day).

You should only drink wheatgrass on an empty stomach as otherwise you may experience nausea. After you have consumed the wheatgrass juice you should let it be digested for at least half an hour before eating.

If you drink too much wheatgrass juice then you will experience nausea due to the high sugar content and detoxing effects of the juice. This can be combated by adding other juices to the wheatgrass juice to reduce its sweetness. Celery juice is an ideal partner because it has a natural savoury taste due to its high levels of sodium.

Another technique to reduce the sweetness of the wheatgrass is growing the grass hydroponically instead of in soil. Hydroponically grown wheatgrass still has the excellent nutritional properties of wheatgrass grown in soil.

Wheatgrass juice is a great cleansing agent for the intestinal tract but if you drink and acts as a natural laxative but if you consume too much then you will be needing to visit the toilet more often that desired.

For most people 1-2 oz a day is the amount taken if taking wheatgrass juice for maintaining good health. People taking wheatgrass for the treatment of disease often take 4-8 oz of juice per day but some of this will not be drunk, it will be taken as a wheatgrass enema or as a wheatgrass implant.

Your body will adjust to the cleansing powers of wheatgrass with continued use and you will be able to drink more without the side effects of nausea. Listen to your body and start off with small amounts.

Thanks Happy Juicer!!

How to Take an Enema

Posted in Cleansing by wandren on 15 September 2007

Also in the book mentioned in my last entry, was instructions for taking enemas, summarized below:

Full enemas can be administered at home using a sterile colon tube and a two-quart capacity enema bag; tubes should be about 18-to-20 inches long, though never forced-in farther than they will comfortably go. The enema bag should be filled with one-to-two quarts of warm, not hot, water, and bled of air pockets.

Lie on your back, with buttocks slightly raised, by either a slanted board or a pillow, and allow the water to slowly enter the colon while exhaling; inhaling when you want to stop the flow. When the colon is comfortably full, massage the abdomen from left to right for a few minutes, then roll onto the right side for a few minutes and repeat; release whenever you feel the urge — do not force it to stay inside.

Rejuvelac can be added to the enema to restore instestinal flora, as can wheat grass juice.

Author, Ann Wigmore, recommends an enema every morning, followed by a wheat grass juice implant; she further recommends against coffee enemas, as they introduce undesired caffeine to the system.

How to Take a Wheat Grass Implant

Posted in Books and Book-Making,Cleansing by wandren on 15 September 2007

Found a book from 1983 called the Hippocrates Diet and Health Program, which describes what a Wheatgrass implant is and how to do it. Summarized below:

Wheatgrass juice “is effective as either an immediate purge or as a retention enema.” The hemorrhoidal vein, which lies just inside the rectum, receive liquids, minerals and toxins from the colon, transporting them directly to the liver for processing. Since the wheatgrass juice implant sits in the lower bowel where the portal vein is, it travels directly to the liver to detoxify it, and is absorbed directly into the blood stream to be distributed throughout the body.

Using a sterilized infant enema syringe, squeeze one-to-two ounces of wheat grass juice into the rectum, and hold for as long as you feel comfortable, up to one hour. Once per day should be plenty, though three attempts may be required (in one sitting) to achieve the desired effect. The first attempt will probably only hold for a few seconds, a second attempt may hold for a few minutes, and a third attempt, with three-to-four ounces of juice may hold for as long as 20 minutes; each successive implant should flush more fecal matter.

The author further notes that one need not be concerned with forgetting about an implant, as she has slept with an implant, retaining it overnight, and states that the juice may be completely absorbed by the body.

The Unmentionables: Matters of the Bowel

Posted in Cleansing by wandren on 15 September 2007

How I managed to lose 10 pounds this week, with active Irritable Bowel Syndrome, is beyond me – imagine how many pounds of fecal matter are building inside me.

Colemics BoardIt is apparent to me that herbal cleansers are not enough – IBS aside, I can’t get those pictures of bowel garbage out of my mind.

Karuna Detox illustrates the colema board; Suki Zoe illustrates the tips used in colemics.

Annie’s Appleseed Project has a discussion on Coffee Enemas and links to related resources; Green Pastures has a nutritional analysis of wheat grass, stating that it is a complete food source, not a nutritional supplement.

Grow Wheat Grass has information about growing wheat grass and how to deal with mold. I don’t like the juicers she sells because the working parts are plastic; look for tin- or zinc-coated cast iron or stainless steel models.

Here, Raemali describes her 11-day stay at the Optimum Health Institute, which included wheat grass juice and rejuvalac; The Wholistic Research Company has a great instructional page about how to take enemas and the ingredients to use for each purpose – good stuff!!

Human Wildlife

Posted in Books and Book-Making,Cleansing,Mythology,Religious History by wandren on 11 September 2007

While searching for a manual for my Wheat Grass Juicer, I came across an e-book called “Diagnosis Unknown.” This book is written by the husband of a woman whose illness odyssey took them from having complete faith in the American medical system to disillusionment, as they tried desperately to find the cure for a disabling condition that kept her teetering on the edge of life for two years, as she was handed-off from one doctor to another.

While the story itself is very moving, it touches on many subjects, including the overuse of antibiotics, colon cleansing, candidiasis (systemic candida infections), dust mites, and chiropractic care – and I’m only on page 59 of 252!

As I left the book to run some errands, IColon Cleanse couldn’t help but feel sick to my stomach, since I still feel crampy and clogged from last night’s bout with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and just yesterday, I finished reading a book called “The Judas Strain.” It’s no coincidence that I stumbled-upon this book (Diagnosis Unknown).

The author of “Diagnosis Unknown,” Randy Smith describes, with enough detail to sicken, what came out his and his wife’s bowels while practicing a form of colonics called (I think) colemics, which is a blended form of the words colonics and enema. I’ve seen pictures of large convoluted plastic-looking things people claimed to have excreted from the bowel through various cleansing regimes, but since those authors always had something to sell, I didn’t place much credibility on them – but now, having combined Mr. Smith’s words with those photos, I feel ill, imagining what lies inside me.
