Let me tell you, that once I received my license as a skin therapist, I kept taking aesthetic courses, because I wanted to know as much as I could about the skin and how I could help my clients. Soon I had over 30 certificates, including oncology esthetics certification, but there was something else. Then I decided to study nutrition, to get a deeper understanding in how daily diet and overall body health effects the skin. That’s how I became certified health coach.
Skin is a part of the body. In fact it is the largest organ. If internal organs are depleted of nutrients, oxygen and congested with toxins, it is not possible to look perfect on the outside. No matter what you do to the skin topically it will look dull, lifeless or experience breakouts. Good daily diet and regular detox are essential. When I say diet, I mean nutritious food.
Today we will talk about one of the moist nutrient dense and detoxing product-wheatgrass. I tried many things, and If I say IT IS AMAZING, believe me it is. I still, definitely love my green vegetable juice and super-food smoothies every morning, but nothing gave me such an instant result as wheatgrass juice. It adds energy, clearness of my brain and glow to my skin.
It is really easy to make wheatgrass juice at home. My boys 7 and 10 years old love helping us. I buy my wheatgrass from organic farm 909-263-0031 (www.wheatgrasscentral.com ) Owner Gayle is the sweetest women, you will instantly fall in love with her.
According to Hippocrates health institute ” wheatgrass juice is nature’s finest medicine. In addition to flooding body with therapeutic dosages of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes and phytonutrients , wheatgrass is also a powerful detoxifier. It helps to neutralize toxins and environmental pollutants. Among other things it is particularly high in chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is a first product of light. Only green plants can transform sun’s energy into chlorophyll through the process of photosynthesis. High content of oxygen in chlorophyll delivers more oxygen to the blood. These powerful nutrients help protect us from the effects of premature aging.
I give 1 ounce to my 7 and 10 year old boys and my husband and myself drink 2 ounces of Wheatgrass juice every morning. It gives more energy then coffee ever used to give me! It is okay to feel a little bit dizzy first few days. Few reasons for that:
-body is shocked (in a good way) with the amount nutrients supplied to the body. 2 ounces of Wheatgrass juice is equivalent to 5 pounds of fresh organic;
-huge amount of oxygen was supplied to the blood in a very short time;
-toxins are being pulled from tissues and blood.
After few days drinking 2 ounces of wheatgrass juice, I no longer experience that dizziness, just the positive “side effects”.
Remember, Only young grass has all these powerful benefits. So If you bought a flat and your grass is getting too tall or changing color to yellow, it is better to cut and store in a glass container in the refrigerator.
Let me know if you already drink wheatgrass juice and if you can share other benefits or if you have any questions.
