View Full Version : Wheatgrass, Detox and Day 11 update
09-02-2005, 06:31 AM
I was wondering if it's possible if wheatgrass can cause detox symptoms? Today I'm on Day 11 of going raw and although my detox symptoms have been very mild, yesterday I had two ounces of wheat grass (I've never had it before) and later last night I had the WORST headache and flu-like symptoms. I had a rough sleep last night and this morning I'm feeling week, shakey and I have major diarhea. Just wondering if it was initiated by the wheatgrass.
On a happier note...I'm 10 lbs lighter on the scale than I was 11 days ago...although I feel 25 lbs lighter! I LOVE raw food!

Everything I've read about it points to definately yes! The "whatever" in the wheatgrass does a major job on cleaning all the uckies out of anything it touches.
The first time I drank any I immediately went into major allergy sympton problems. It attacked my throat and sinuses. And scared the dickens out of me. Later when I got brave enough to try again, it wasn't as near as drastic, but I had been raw for several months by then.
Once again I am trying to convince my self to get some wheat grass growning and get some internal cleaning done.
Hope you feel better real soon. Or if you are willing, keep drinking the wheat grass and keep cleaning. I know, not fun, but it does a wonderful job of getting the job done.

I recently re-read an old book I had, called, "Wheatgrass, Nature's finest medicine." This is what it says about Wheat grass:
Rebuilds the blood
Increases hemoglobin production
cleanses the colon
alkalinizes the blood
purges the liver
stimulate enzyme activity
chelates out heavy metals
You should drink on empty stomach, starting out with no more than 1-2 oz. a day. Therapeutic doses are 4-8 oz. but I think you want to ease into that amount. Higher amounts must be taken rectally. Wait 30-45 minutes before drinking or eating anything. You can also chew it, but this would take about 8 mouthfulls to get 2 oz.

many people have allergic reaction to wheatgrass, as the body tries to get rid of it from its system. It is quite common to vomit after ingesting wheatgrass. Grass in general is food optimal for horses and cows, but not humans. Best food for humans are fruit and soft, tender greens IMHO.
