"Dear Mr. Meyerowitz, I just
want to tell you how much your book has helped me. In 1995, I was diagnosed with bladder
cancer. ....I have been through the mill. The doctor has cut me up ....so many times, I
feel like I paid for his medical school. But your story about the woman in Florida with
bladder cancer changed everything for me.......Your book is thoroughly dog-eared but not
from abuse- from love. I think I've bought at least a dozen copies by now that I gave to
friends and even one stranger! God bless you for giving me the key that has literally
turned my life around." -Diane Wendt, Bloomingdale, IL

"Dear Steve, I have just
finished going through your new Wheatgrass Nature's Finest Medicine. It is a masterful
work. It is definitely the most complete book on the subject. I am sure we will sell a lot

Basics of Wheatgrass and What's
in this Book
What is Wheatgrass?
Wheatgrass is a variety of grass that is used like an herbal medicine for its therapeutic
and nutritional properties. It is available as a fresh squeezed juice, a dehydrated
powder, or tablets. This book uses the name "wheat" grass because it is the most
popular, but the common grains of barley, oat and rye grow grasses that are equally
potent. See Spiritual & Religious Roots, History & Culture, Healing with Grass,
Nutrition, The Pioneers, Real Stories from Real People.
What does it do?
It has broad effectiveness, but its three most therapeutic roles are: blood purification,
liver detoxification, and colon cleansing. As a food it is very nourishing and restorative
with such a complete range nutrients that it can, by itself, sustain life. This
nutritional miracle is most evident in the animal kingdom where studies prove large and
small grazing animals not only sustain themselves on young grasses but also improve their
health. See Healing with Grass, Nutrition, Research, Real Stories from Real People,
Spiritual & Religious Roots.
How do I take it?
Therapeutically, you would drink the fresh juice or apply it rectally through enemas or
implants. For nutrition and prevention, you can make powdered drinks or take tablets. See
The Juicers, Healing with Grass, Real Stories from Real People.
Where do I get it?
From your natural food store, juice bar, direct from growers, or mail order. See
Resources, The Companies, The Pioneers, Healing Resorts.
Why should I take it?
Wheatgrass earned its reputation from people with terminal illnesses who took it at the
eleventh hour of their lives, after conventional medicine left them with no hope. But you
can take it as part of a long range prevention and health maintenance program. See Healing
with Grass, Research, Nutrition, Real Stories from Real People.
How do I get started?
You can grow the grass yourself, buy it from a grower or health food store, drink the
juice at a juice bar or buy bottled grass tablets and powders. But if you are sick, it is
highly recommended that you enroll in a retreat center for a 2-4 week wellness program. As
an alternative, you can establish a home-health program using the information in this book
and the guidance of a knowledgeable health professional. See Grow Your Own Grass, The
Juicers, The Companies, Healing Resorts.
Why should I believe you?
There are many scientific studies demonstrating the efficacy and nutrition of grass foods.
Most information about its therapeutic effectiveness is based on clinical evidence and the
word-of-mouth testimony of users. See Science & Wheatgrass, Research, Real Stories
from Real People, Nutrition, Spiritual & Religious Roots, History & Culture.
Wheat Grass vs. Wheatgrass
A word on spelling. "Wheat grass" is a variety of grass like barley, oats and
rye, grown in fields across America. "Wheatgrass" refers to grass grown indoors
in trays for approximately 10 days and is the kind that is squeezed into a fresh juice.
The tray-grown grass is used primarily for therapeutic purposes. The 60+day old field
grown grasses, available in dehydrated powder or tablets, are used primarily as
Excerpt from Wheatgrass
Nature's Finest Medicine
Healing is a Journey
However wonderful wheatgrass is, it is only the fuel energizer for your engine. Many who
speak about wheatgrass exclaim its virtues and how it saved them. Wheatgrass gets a lot of
credit. But grass is neither a panacea nor a magic potion and some leaders in the
wheatgrass movement will tell you it does not cure anything. People heal, wheatgrass
helps. You will restore balanced health as a result of the changes you make. Wheatgrass
may get you started on this new path, but you will work very hard at applying a
multi-faceted total health restoration program. It can take over your entire life. Sick
people are often too stricken to function normally in society. They stop working, have
long hospitals stays, are bedridden--they have to drop out to die or drop out to fight for
life. Even if you take 8 ounces of wheatgrass juice everyday and build a health program
around it, it is only the grease for your axles. To allege that wheatgrass cures is to
equate it with a drug. That turns wheatgrass into a quick-fix remedy which is the
antithesis of what the health concepts behind it are all about.
Causes of Disease
Health is a balancing act. Around 1980, world famous tightrope walker Phillipe Petite
walked a rope from one tower of New York's World Trade Center to the other 1,400 feet in
the air. He took his life in his hands for real. There was no parachute. Were he to make a
false step, he would die. Everyday we take steps in our life that either keep us in
perfect balance or throw us on a downward spiral. The fall into disease is not a single
bad step, but a series of bad choices. Call them cigarettes, drugs, alcohol, junk food,
poor hygiene, stress, work environment, air pollution, water pollution, the result is cell
pollution. The signs of disease are low energy, fatigue, poor digestion, gain or loss of
weight, unclear thinking, allergies, aches and pains and ultimately the major
disorders--cancer, high blood pressure, heart disease, arthritis, emphysema, etc. Cells
start to lose their life force. They misfire. Metabolism malfunctions. Organs weaken,
digestion and elimination are disrupted. Toxins settle into the dead zones--the weak
spots. Now the cells start to darken, choking on bacteria, yeast, fungus and toxic acids.
They can't get enough oxygen. Acidification, infestation and destruction--the cycle of
imbalance. We have fallen.
The journey to rebuilding your health is akin to rebuilding your house. First of all, it
needs a thorough cleaning. Forget about the mop. Pull out the heavy duty vacuum, rent a
floor sander, pull down the old wallpaper, rip out the broken cabinets, reset the squeeky
door, spackle the hole, fix the windows. Although, you may need assistance from
professionals-the painter, carpenter, electrician-you are the contractor. It's your house;
you direct the nature of repairs; you choose the pace and you have to live in it during
the renovation. Hopefully, you have not let things go so far downhill that you find
structural damage. If you've ignored the signs and have termite infestation for example,
you may have to surgically replace a beam. If too many beams have been damaged, then the
house may be beyond repair. There is a critical mass in any system beyond which it cannot
recover. Although such deterioration does not occur overnight, it did happen right under
your nose. You contributed to it by ignoring the signs and symptoms or taking wrong advice
from the professionals. Or maybe you've just lived like a slob and dirtied your own house
and now look at the mess you're in. It's time to change your ways--renovate, rebuild,
Step I Cleanse
The path to health starts with a major cleaning. If there is infestation, you have to
control it. If there is damage, you have to reconstruct. First stop the poisoning of the
blood and tissues from acidifying diet, bacteria, yeast, giardia and parasites. Reverse
the trend of acidification and alkalinize the blood with wheatgrass juice and an enzyme
rich living foods diet. Take nothing from a box or can. Eat from the garden. Eliminate
sugar except when it comes inside a fruit. Throw out the espresso machine and the
microwave and put a juicer and blender in their place. Clear the blockages, empty the
garbage and reinvigorate the elimination system with colon hydrotherapy. Jump start the
liver with a massage and a wheatgrass implant. You can change. Your body is a milky-way of
trillions of cells which combine to make up tissues and glands. But every minute we breath
in new atoms and exhale the old. In six weeks, every atom in your liver is replaced.
Renewal is a constant. What foods will you renew with? Stop treating your stomach like a
compost and start treating it like a garden. Set in motion an upward cycle of rejuvenation
that leads to balanced health. The signposts are: trimmer weight, clearer mind, brighter
eyes, better concentration, more energy and vitality.
"He who is
immune is immortal." -Lao-Tzu, ancient Chinese philosopher, founder of Taoism
