GRASSES - JUICING

Grasses - Juicing

Elaine writes:

The juice of ONLY THE GRASS (the sprout) would be OK. I have explained that just like our blood system, the circulatory system of the growing sprout of whatever grain it is, cannot use the starch within the seed of the grain and the starch is broken down by plant enzymes so that it can enter the circulatory system of the sprout as glucose. So the grass is OK just like it is so good for grazing animals. However, feed the animals a load of the starchey seed (grain) and they get sick.

The book should be required reading for anyone with Crohn's disease and we wish gastroenterologists would read it as well. The diet is a real alternative to the drug based therapy from the medical community.
