Feedback on Wheat Grass and HSV: I heard about the benefits of wheat grass and decided to grow my own and I bought the spring seeds, they were not as strong tasting as the winter wheat seeds. It took about 2 weeks from seed to harvest and I began taking 2oz. Or around 60ml a day, every day. Within 3 months I noticed I had not had an hsv outbreak since I began the wheatgrass. All the food products that seem to cause hsv ob, I was able to eat, I love nuts, but have not been able to eat them for years. Now, it didn't seem to be a problem. I wasn't sure if I was cured or if the wheatgrass was just keeping the ob from happening. Winter came and I stopped taking the wheatgrass. The outbreaks came back. Not as bad, but they are there. I'm going to continue wheatgrass again, because I was enjoying not having to worry about what was in foods that someone else prepared. It was very freeing. Wheatgrass straight, does not taste great, but chased with pear juice, apple juice or carrot juice, it is palatable and the benefits out way the taste. Most juice bars serve wheat grass, you just don't know how fresh the cut grass is. I hope this post is most helpful. Take care and God bless

Multiple Cures

I wanted to make sure wheatgrass was listed since in this day and age things are more available so we use this as one for our family remedies.

I use wheatgrass juice for:

1. Insomnia - must take it seconds before tucking into bed and closing your eyes, if using it in a capsuled form (powdered) then you have about 5-10 minutes before you must be in bed eyes closed beginning to sleep, the result is a deep unbroken and healthy sleep from which you wake up energized and clear headed. For some this takes up to 3-4 days.

2. Acne, my daughter had infant acne and some minor rash like effect on her back and legs, going and coming but never leaving completely. After several weeks of using 1/2 a shot this went away, my daughter likes veggies even more than before and even asks for wheatgrass juice or other veggie juices.

3. My wife had rough skin that seemed to harden into tiny little hard points and she was getting more and more self conscious about it. When we started our daughter (#2 above) on wheatgrass juice I insisted she use some to and this slowly turned this rough skin around and now its smoother than ever.

4. My wife used to take all sort of greens and get stomach aches no matter how little or what brand and when we finally tried wheatgrass juice she said she got no aches, no pains and she loved how easy it was to take and the energy she herself got.

5. Minor cuts and wounds can be cleaned out with it.

6. On farms when cows are infertile or bulls are shooting blanks they use wheatgrass juice and 80-90% of the cattle become fertile again.

A friend called me up and mentioned that my suggestion to use wheatgrass juice got her in trouble. She had one of her employees use it for about a week and that employee got pregnant. The employee said she had been trying to conceive for over a year and finally gave up and after a week on wheatgrass juice almost immediately conceived. She asked me if that could happen and I told her about the common remedy for infertile cattle.

... I could go on and I'll add more but this is what I can do for now.
