A note of thanks for making this publication [Dr. Ann's book, Why Suffer?] available on-line. Had it not been, I don't know that I would have had the opportunity to read it. I could not put it down and read it over the weekend. Truly a courageous woman.
I have known about wheatgrass for a long time but never tried it or felt the need. Then life changed. I was diagnosed with MCS, an environmental disease that makes living in our world of chemicals next to impossible. Always a "health nut" I was baffled as to why I would become so depleted when I ate all the "right" things. Anyway, I am sprouting now and eating even healthier than before. The jury's out yet but I will be experimenting with "the grass."
I just have one problem, when juiced, the smell is nauseating to me causing me to vomit. Shall I plug my nose???? Has anyone else ever had this problem? How does frozen juice fare?
You’re not alone. I've heard that it’s a sign of low stomach acid. At any rate, the important thing is to get it down. Hold your nose, eat a slice of lemon or orange afterwards, or dilute it with water. Or, do the WG as an implant.
Fresh frozen can be as much as 95% as potent as fresh; it depends on the process used, and how long it was between juicing and freezing. Ideally, you want to juice it and drink it within 20 minutes of harvesting. Lab tests have shown that by the 5th day after juicing there’s virtually no vitamins or minerals left in it.
I hope this helps,
