What is the wonder behind Wheatgrass?

For those of you who may not know what Wheatgrass is, it is a variety of grass that has been used as medicine due to it’s therapeutic and medicinal properties. It comes in various forms: freshly juiced, dried juice concentrate, or whole leaf powder sometimes in tablet form.

There are so many benefits to taking wheatgrass, but its most largely known roles are blood purification, liver detoxification, and colon cleansing. Other benefits include a boost in strength, endurance, spirituality, sense of well-being, aid in sore throat, tooth aches and gum healing, and neutralizing toxins from the body.

When you take a shot of fresh Wheatgrass juice, some say they feel the hair on the back of their neck stand straight up. There is amazing power to fresh grass juice that researchers still cannot explain to this day.

How Much Should I Take?
For good preventative measure, 4 ounces is what we like to recommend, but work your way up to that point first.  For beginners, we recommend 1-2 ounces per day.  For medicinal use, you should take 4-6 ounces or more per day.

Why Should I Believe You?
There have been many studies on grasses and their effectiveness on human health. Beyond that, the numerous success stories provide ample inspiration for wanting to pump yourself full of the stuff. Many people have turned to Wheatgrass after conventional medicine left them with no other option and it cured them within an amazingly short period of time. If you want to read about these stories, take a look at the book “Wheatgrass Nature’s Finest Medicine” by Steve Meyerowitz.

Wheatgrass Juice or Powder?
This question is commonly debated, but many testimonials will bring you to believe that Juice is the best way to consume Wheatgrass. Famous healer Dr. Ann Wigmore used juice to heal many people at the Hippocrates Institute. She was the person who popularized indoor tray grown Wheatgrass.

The reason here is that fresh live Wheatgrass Juice is a potent elixir of live enzymes which aid in the absorption of Wheatgrass in the body.  These enzymes help the body digest the many nutrients Wheatgrass contains. Wheatgrass Powder does have more nutrients because it has been concentrated so it will contain more minerals, chlorophyll and vitamins. With all the studies performed on Wheatgrass, there has been decided that there is an unknown healing factor to the live juice of which they call the grass-juice factor. This grass-juice factor is believed to be responsible for healing miracles. This leads us to believe that juice is the best way to consume Wheatgrass.

So… Why not take Wheatgrass?

“The primary form of food is grass. Man’s most primeval nutrient, that which nourished him for hunderds of thousands of years, until technological civilization brought with it sprouts, and tender grasses that flourished all over the earth.  When man dies, he goes to grass again, and so the tide of life, with everlasting repitition, in continuous circles, moves endlessly on and upward, and in more senses than one, all flesh is grass.” – Edmond Bordeauz Szekely

Juicing for Autoimmune Digestive Disorders

We are Fully Rooted in the belief that juicing can heal and balance the body to where it needs to be in order for a life full of happiness and love. It has done it and continues to do it for the eight members of this business, and it can do it for you as well!

Autoimmune diseases can take on many shapes and forms. Another part of the body that these particular diseases can wreak havoc on is the digestive system. It may be a number of things contributing to either the slow of quick development of a digestive disorder. Foods we eat, environments we are exposed to, contact with bacteria that were able to thrive in a particular setting. The list goes on and on, but what the only thing that matters to someone who is suffering from a digestive disorder is being able to find comfort and tricks to help alleviate the pain and anguish that is involved with one (or more) of these diseases. Some common autoimmune digestive disorders include:

Celiac disease, when ingestion of gluten causes the immune system to attack the small intestine.

Crohn’s disease, a disorder that causes the immune system to beat up the entire digestive tract.

Ulcerative Colitis, a very similar disease to Crohn’s, occurs when the immune system attacks the lining of the rectum and colon, leaving ulcers.

All autoimmune digestive disorders are results of the immune system attacking the body, in this case the digestive system. This particular system of the body is very vital because it is what allows us to freely eat and get the key nutrients that we need for a quality life. Maintaining a good, quality life is not so easy when you have a storm going on inside of your body and you feel out of control and helpless. Some regular symptoms that you may see with every digestive disorder are diarrhea, vomiting, mild to excruciating abdominal pain (in one or more areas of the abdomen), fatigue and weakness, rapid fluctuation in body weight, dehydration, nutritional deficiencies, and much more. It is a nightmare, and one that is very difficult to wake up from. Besides the inflammation that is seizing your body internally, someone with an autoimmune digestive disorder can also find themselves depressed, hopeless, frustrated, and uncertain about themselves and everything around them.


Fully Rooted would like to share with you that raw cold-pressed juicing can help ease your physical and mental pain. Juicing gives your body the rare micro nutrients without the fiber of the fruit and vegetable. It is easily passed through your digestive tract and effortlessly absorbed into your cells, making them happy! With a consistent juice plan, preferably 2-3 times a day, the inflammation of your digestive system will decrease and your energy will increase. Your body’s immune system will strengthen and begin to realize the difference between good and bad bacteria within the body. Think of the autoimmune digestive disorder as a battle inside of the body and juicing as the peacemaker. Over time, with faith and consistency, juicing restores peace, balance and happiness to every aspect of the body. Essentially we are giving our bodies everything that it has always wanted and needed, straight from natures goodness. Juicing is natural, it is basic
 it’s Fully Rooted.
