I got exactly what you see here, but my legs are red. I was hoping the legs had a easy on off buckle like the arms. I’m not sure how to wrap the legs. I hope there are directions!
The package is heavy and the arm wraps seemed to be very well made but I only looked at them for a second.
Unfortunately, yesterday was biceps. I’ll have to google if they are good for triceps as well.
Super Saiyan says use occlusion training on arms they use machine curl biceps and rope push down triceps at the end of the workout every 4-6 weeks they say this isn’t something you want to do every workout.
They are using a Mark Bell slingshot band. I believe this one
Which is not a good idea! It is not designed for that! You cannot adjust the bands to make sure the blood traveling into the muscle is still going on and the blood leaving is slowed down.
Don’t use products the way they aren’t intended! And if they are not in good shape, throw them out! I have seen too many people get hurt from ripped lifting straps because they keep them too long! If they start to rip throw them out!
The same goes for these bands! They are designed to be the thickness they are if they start to rip, they are no longer that wide and can cause injury!
These bands are no joke! You have to know exactly what you are doing! Listen to the directions! If there’s pain or numb hands (pins and needles) it’s too tight! You are essentially putting a tourniquet on your arm!
Leaving it on too long, causing neurovascular damage and tissue death. Generally, permanent nerve, muscle and blood vessel damage can occur after about two hours. Placing it too far away from the wound, or on the wrong type of wound (i.e. wounds at a joint) Fabricating a tourniquet from an inappropriate material.
You don’t want your limbs amputated because you are an idiot! So pay close attention to the directions!
Once you learn what you are doing and aren’t a beginner in the gym:
This seems like a great way to help me build leg strength and muscles with my military knee injury! You are supposed to lift 30% of your one rep max until failure.
So, light weight, high reps = success! That’s a dream come true for anyone with a joint injury!
I can’t wait to try it!
**Update** January 10th 2018
I tried the bands on my arms last night and I’m not sure if I tightened them enough.
I did feel tightness in the muscle especially at the top by the band site. At the end of my workout, I did 4 sets of one arm machine curl and 4 sets of triceps press down. After removing the bands the muscle was still tight at the band site for 15 mins after.
Today my triceps are actually sore, so I believe they did help!
stay tuned for legs tomorrow! This I can’t wait for!
**Update** January 11th 2018
WOW! I just did 4 sets of 15 leg extensions with 70lbs and I feel like I did a full leg workout! Next time I will save it till my last exercise instead of my first! Lol
Ok back to working out!
in case you are wondering which numbers I used because the leg straps have easy to line up numbers, my quads are too big to line up the numbers. So it was 10 and blank Lol I was about 2-3″ away from the 1.
hmm ok new update same day! I gave my legs a 15 min break to return to normal and now I am lifting more than I have since I came back six weeks ago! Maybe the bands increased the blood flow in the quads after releasing it?
I thought from the look of it, that this was going to be terrible! However; there isn’t a taste! It’s like dry ash in your mouth.
My Directions: wet your toothbrush and dab it into the charcoal toothpaste. A little Dab will do ya!
Brush your teeth just like you normally would. That’s it! It’s that simple. They even give you a black toothbrush so you don’t get grossed out by the white toothbrush getting stained (I assume).
It did brighten my teeth a little and made them super clean.
I only tried it twice, I want to see what prolonged repeated use does, so stay tuned!
3lbs ground turkey
1 bag of Riced Cauliflower
2 red bell peppers (any color will do)
1 packet of 30% less taco seasoning
1 8oz can of tomato sauce
Chop up peppers and mushrooms if you have to and set aside.
Pour olive oil into a deep pan to cover the bottom, don’t worry if you pour too much the extra benefits will be good for you!
Brown the turkey meat and pour off the extra fat back into the original container. Don’t pour it down the drain! You will eventually clog it! I cooked it on a 5 heat
Add the remaining ingredients cook on high for 10mins and then turn to 2 and simmer for 20mins.
At first it will look like there isn’t enough liquid, but once you cook it, the juices from the pepper will release and add to the tomato sauce!
If you want to get shredded add this to your diet regimine and work your butt off in the gym!
**Update** 1 hr later
I made a second batch and it came out much better! The only thing I did different was brown the meat with the additional spices. I still waited to add the taco spice packet after the meat was browned and the other ingredients were added.
Try it you will like it!
**Update** June 25th 2017
This is the riced Cauliflower
10 mins on high and 5mins to simmer after the meat is brown because you don’t need the extra time to make the cauliflower bits to get soft. The riced Cauliflower cooks really fast. The extra 5 mins is to make sure the peppers are cooked and the juices released.
Check it out try it both ways see what you like best! You can also grab a whole head of Cauliflower and pulse it in a food processor/vitamix for the ultra money saver! If you have one.
**Update** July 2nd this time they only had Broccoli and Cauliflower rice mix, which is great because I love both!

Black Seed – ‘The Remedy For Everything But Death’
Benefits of Black Seed
The seeds of the annual flowering plant, Nigella Sativa, have been prized for their healing properties since time immemorial. While frequently referred to among English-speaking cultures as Roman coriander, black sesame, black cumin, black caraway and onion seed, it is known today primarily as black seed, which is at the very least an accurate description of its physical appearance. The earliest record of its cultivation and use come from ancient Egypt.
Black seed oil, in fact, was found in Egyptian pharoah Tutankhamun’s tomb, dating back to approximately 3,300 years ago.[i] In Arabic cultures, black cumin is known as Habbatul barakah, meaning the “seed of blessing.” It is also believed that the Islamic prophet Mohammed said of it that it is “a remedy for everything except death”
Many of black cumin’s traditionally ascribed health benefits have been thoroughly confirmed in the biomedical literature. In fact, since 1964, there have been 656 published, peer-reviewed studies referencing it.
We have indexed salient research, available to view on GreenMedInfo.com on our Black Seed (Nigella Sativa) page, on well over 40 health conditions that may be benefited from the use of the herb, including over 20 distinct pharmacological actions it expresses, such as:
Gluconeogenesis Inhibitor (Anti-Diabetic)
Hepatoprotective (Liver Protecting)
Renoprotective (Kidney Protecting)
Tumor Necrosis Factor Alpha Inhibitor
These 30 pharmacological actions are only a subset of a far wider number of beneficial properties intrinsic to the black seed. While it is remarkable that this seed has the ability to positively modulate so many different biological pathways, this is actually a rather common occurrence among traditional plant medicines.
Natural RX: Greenmedinfo
Our project has identified over 1600 natural compounds with a wide range of health benefits, and we are only in our first 5 years of casual indexing. There are tens of thousands of other substances that have already been researched, with hundreds of thousands of studies supporting their medicinal value (MEDLINE, whence our study abstracts come, has over 600,000 studies classified as related to Complementary and Alternative Medicine).
Take turmeric, for example. We have identified research indicating its value in over 600 health conditions, while also expressing over 160 different potentially beneficial pharmacological actions. You can view the quick summary of over 1500 studies we have summarized on our Turmeric Research page, which includes an explorative video on turmeric. Professional database members are further empowered to manipulate the results according to their search criteria, i.e. pull up and print to PDF the 61 studies on turmeric and breast cancer. This, of course, should help folks realize how voluminous the supportive literature indicating the medicinal value of natural substances, such as turmeric and black seed, really is.
Black seed has been researched for very specific health conditions. Some of the most compelling applications include:
Type 2 Diabetes: Two grams of black seed a day resulted in reduced fasting glucose, decreased insulin resistance, increased beta-cell function, and reduced glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) in human subjects.[ii]
Helicobacter Pylori Infection: Black seeds possess clinically useful anti-H. pylori activity, comparable to triple eradication therapy.[iii]
Epilepsy: Black seeds were traditionally known to have anticonvulsive properties. A 2007 study with epileptic children, whose condition was refractory to conventional drug treatment, found that a water extract significantly reduced seizure activity.[iv]
High Blood pressure: The daily use of 100 and 200 mg of black seed extract, twice daily, for 2 months, was found to have a blood pressure-lowering effect in patients with mild hypertension.[v]
Asthma: Thymoquinone, one of the main active constituents within Nigella sativa (black cumin), is superior to the drug fluticasone in an animal model of asthma.[vi] Another study, this time in human subjects, found that boiled water extracts of black seed have relatively potent anti-asthmatic effect on asthmatic airways.[vii]
Acute tonsillopharyngitis: characterized by tonsil or pharyngeal inflammation (i.e. sore throat), mostly viral in origin, black seed capsules (in combination with Phyllanthus niruri) have been found to significantly alleviate throat pain, and reduce the need for pain-killers, in human subjects.[viii]
Chemical Weapons Injury: A randomized, placebo-controlled human study of chemical weapons injured patients found that boiled water extracts of black seed reduced respiratory symptoms, chest wheezing, and pulmonary function test values, as well as reduced the need for drug treatment.[ix]
Colon Cancer: Cell studies have found that black seed extract compares favorably to the chemoagent 5-fluoruracil in the suppression of colon cancer growth, but with a far higher safety profile.[x] Animal research has found that black seed oil has significant inhibitory effects against colon cancer in rats, without observable side effects.[xi]
MRSA: Black seed has anti-bacterial activity against clinical isolates of methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus.[xii]
Withdrawal: A study on 35 opiate addicts found black seed as an effective therapy in long-term treatment of opioid dependence.[xiii]
Sometimes the biblical reference to ‘faith the size of a mustard seed moving mountains’ comes to mind in connection with natural substances like black seeds. After all, do seeds not contain within them the very hope for continuance of the entire species that bore it? This super-saturated state of the seed, where life condenses itself down into an intensely miniaturized holographic fragment of itself, promising the formation of future worlds within itself, is the very emblem of life’s immense and immortal power.
If we understand the true nature of the seed, how much life (past, present and future) is contained within it, it will not seem so far-fetched that it is capable of conquering antibiotic resistant bacteria, healing the body from chemical weapons poisoning, or stimulate the regeneration of dying insulin-producing beta cells in the diabetic, to name but only a fraction of black seed’s experimentally-confirmed powers.
Moving the mountain of inertia and falsity associated with the conventional concept of disease, is a task well-suited for seeds and not chemicals. The greatest difference, of course, between a seed and a patented synthetic chemical (i.e. pharmaceutical drug), is that Nature (God) made the former, and men with profit-motives and a deranged understanding of the nature of the body made the latter.
The time, no doubt, has come for food, seeds, herbs, plants, sunlight, air, clean water, and yes, love, to assume once again their central place in medicine, which is to say, the art and science of facilitating self-healing within the human body. Failing this, the conventional medical system will crumble under the growing weight of its own corruption, ineptitude, and iatrogenic suffering (and subsequent financial liability) it causes. To the degree that it reforms itself, utilizing non-patented and non-patentable natural compounds with actual healing properties, a brighter future awaits on the horizon. To the degree that it fails, folks will learn to take back control over their health themselves, which is why black seed, and other food-medicines, hold the key to self-empowerment.
16 More Reasons Black Seed Is ‘The Remedy For Everything But Death’
Here are 16 additional potential health benefits to add to the growing list:
Prevents Radiation Damage: Nigella sativa oil (NSO) and its active component, thymoquinone, protect brain tissue from radiation-induced nitrosative stress.[i]
Protects Against Damage from Heart Attack: A thymoquinone extract from nigella sativa has a protective effect against damage associated with experimental heart attack.[ii]
Prevents Morphine Dependence/Toxicity: An alcohol extract of nigella sativa reduces morphine-associated conditioned place preference, an indication of morphine intoxication, dependence and tolerance.[iii]
Prevents Kidney Damage Associated with Diabetes: A thymoquinone extract from nigella sativa has protective effects on experimental diabetic nephropathy.[iv]
Prevents Post-Surgical Adhesions: Covering peritoneal surfaces with Nigella sativa oil (NSO) after peritoneal trauma is effective in decreasing peritoneal adhesion formation in an experimental model.[v]
Prevents Alzheimer’s Associated Neurotoxicity: A thymoquinone extract from nigella sativa has protective effects on experimental diabetic prevents neurotoxicity and Aβ1-40-induced apoptosis in the cell model.[vi]
Suppresses Breast Cancer Growth: : A thymoquinone extract from nigella sativa inhibits tumor growth and induces programmed cell death (apoptosis) in a breast cancer xenograft mouse model.[vii] [viii]
Exhibits Anti-Psoriasis Properties: The alcohol extract of nigella sativa seeds exhibit anti-psoriatic activity, consistent with its medicinal use in traditional medicine.[ix]
Prevents Brain Pathology Associated with Parkinson’s Disease: A thymoquinone extract from nigella sativa protects cultured neurons against αSN-induced synaptic toxicity, a pathology observed in the brains of patients with Parkinson’s disease and dementia with Lewy bodies.[x]
Kills Highly Aggressive Gliobastoma Brain Cancer Cells: A thymoquinone extract from nigella sativa exhibits glioblastoma cell killing activity. [xi]
Kills Leukemia Cells: A thymoquinone from nigella sativa induces mitochondria-mediated apoptosis in acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in vitro.[xii]
Suppresses Liver Cancer Growth: A thymoquinone extract from nigella sativa prevents chemically-induced cancer in a rat model.[xiii]
Prevents Diabetic Pathologies: A water and alcohol extract of nigella sativa at low doses has a blood-sugar lowering effect and ameliorative effect on regeneration of pancreatic islets, indicating its value as a therapeutic agent in the management of diabetes mellitus.[xiv]
Suppresses Cervical Cancer Cell Growth: A thymoquinone extract from nigella sativa exhibits anti-proliferative, apoptotic and anti-invasive properties in a cervical cancer cell line.[xv]
Prevents Lead-Induced Brain Damage: A thymoquinone extract from nigella sativa ameliorates lead-induced brain damage in Sprague Dawley rats.[xvi]
Kills Oral Cancer Cells: A thymoquinone extract from nigella sativa induces programmed cell death (apoptosis) in oral cancer cells.[xvii]
Why is such a powerful seed not yet on the radar of most medical and nutrition communities? We know sesame seed can beat Tylenol in reducing arthritis pain and can reduce cardiovascular disease risk factors in a manner that makes statin drugs envious, and we know flaxseeds shrink breast and prostate tumors, but black seed’s benefits are still largely under reported and underutilized.
Interestingly, despite this blind spot, and as if to confirm black seed’s immense potential as a healing agent, Nestlé, the Switzerland-based global food giant, filed a patent on patent on the use of nigella sativa to “prevent food allergies” in 2010 (Nestlé’s international patent publication WO2010133574). This obvious attempt to appropriate traditional knowledge and use claimed the plant seed or extract should be Nestlé’s intellectual property when used as a food ingredient or drug. According to a Third World Network Briefing Paper from July, 2012:
“The Swiss giant’s claims appear invalid, as traditional uses of Nigella sativa clearly anticipate Nestlé’s patent application, and developing country scholarship has already validated these traditional uses and further described, in contemporary scientific terms, the very medicinal properties of black seed that Nestlé seeks to claim as its own “invention”.
“Nestlé claims any use of an opioid receptor-stimulating compound to treat or prevent allergies, specifically thymoquinone and, more specifically, administration of thymoquinone in the form of Nigella sativa plant material (seeds).3 The type of food allergy of greatest focus is upset stomach and diarrhea.”
The good news is that no such patent has yet to win approval, and for now, this food is still freely available. For additional research updates, simply go to Pubmed.gov, and sign up for an automatic email update for the keyword “nigella sativa,” and you’ll be one of the first to learn about the new research being done on this amazing seed as it comes directly through the biomedical research pipeline.
This stuff tastes straight up like oil! It is not pleasant! I suggest taking a chaser that can cut oil such as apple cider vinegar! I take a shot of fire cider, swish it in my mouth after and then swallow it and all is well!
The benefits of using this before bed far outweigh the negatives!
I am adding this in my daily regimen (when I remember to take it lol)
First thing in the morning wheat grass shot followed by fire cider chaser
Before bed black seed oil with fire cider chaser!
Good luck and tell me how it works for you!
It has diatomaceous earth in it! That’s the white shit you put in your pool filter! Crazy!!
It also has bentonite clay!
It was disgusting tasting! I taste no cinnamon! All I taste is sea salt! And it has a horrible texture.
Ok all that being said. How does it work?
FUCKING AMAZING! Yes; I am cursing a lot this post, but it is purely for effect! This stuff is amazing! Once you get past the gross factor; it actually makes your teeth and mouth feel cleaner than it’s ever been!
Furthermore; I have problems with keeping my teeth white as I brush too hard and always make my gums bleed and that stains my teeth yellow. 3-4 times brushing with this and my teeth are several shades whiter!
I can’t believe it! This stuff is amazing on so many levels! Next time I will definitely get the spearmint or wintergreen flavor!
Each ingredient has a specific purpose for
HOLISTIC DENTAL CARE
Xylitol not a sugar at all although it tastes and behaves like one. It is a wood alcohol that is low in glycemic index. It also has incredible antibacterial, antivral, and antifungal properties. Xylitol is a great sugar alternative because it only feeds probiotics and not candida.
Essential Oils are extracts from fruit, leaves, stems, flowers, roots, and bark. Each essential oils serves a unique purpose, from antibacterial to antiviral, or to energize, calm, detoxify, or aid in body processes. They also smell and taste great!
Sea Salt adds grit to an otherwise smooth consistency and contributes a fair amount of trace minerals.
Baking soda is a perfect ingredient for mouth cleaning. It alkalinizes mouth acidity and combats fungal growth. It removes plaque and has anti-cavity properties.
Diatomaceous Earth is the fossilized remains of microscopic shells, otherwise called silica. Silica helps with calcium absorbtion, cleansing parasites and heavy metals, and more.
Bentonite Clay is usually derived from volcanic ash that has fallen into prehistoric bodies of water that eventually dried up, leaving behind mineral rich deposits. Bentonite is extremely efficient at removing toxins, heavy metals, and radiation from the body.
YogaToes® Toe Stretchers — Yoga For Your Feet
YogaToes® have revolutionized the way we care for our feet. YogaToes® provide simple and natural therapy for painful toes and achy feet. Fighting foot pain and toe deformities now could save you from health complications (and expensive surgeries) down the road.
Being in shoes or high heels all day can really take a toll on your feet. Luckily, by placing toes in a separated position, weakened muscles become more flexible and resilient. After using YogaToes® regularly, the joints in your toes should begin to realign as tissues become supple and strong again. Realignment and greater mobility are the main components in fending off pain as well as a variety of other conditions, including claw toes and hammer toes.
How YogaToes Work
YogaToes® toe stretchers work by spreading and exercising toes. The patented design of YogaToes® fits between, above and beneath toes to gently spread them apart and away from the balls of your feet – providing the same exercise you get when barefoot. All you do is put them on. YogaToes do the work while you relax. A vacation for your feet!
We recommend starting slowly, only wearing YogaToes® for 10-15 minutes a day. Once that begins to feel comfortable, gradually work up to wearing YogaToes® at least 1 hour per day.
Bunion, Claw and Hammer Toes Treatment
Foot and toe problems can’t be looked at in isolation, and that’s why we invented YogaToes®. We introduced an important new concept to the world: preventative foot care. But many people wonder about specific foot problems; Bunions (and bunionettes), claw toes, hammer toe and Plantar Fasciitis always come up. And the answer is ‘yes’, Yoga Toes help prevent and treat this short list as well as a much longer one that wouldn’t fit on this page. Our toe stretchers get at the root cause of these conditions.
Tried, Tested, and Loved!
YogaToes® are meant to benefit most anyone — and indeed we’ve gotten positive feedback from diverse groups of people over the years: busy mothers, professionals who are on their feet all day, physical therapists, construction workers… you name it.
YogaToes® toe stretchers were featured on the The New Ricki Lake Show as a natural pain relief gadget and on The Today Show as a “fan favorite”.
Recently, we found out that the pop singer Sia is a big fan of our toe straighteners as well as many ballerinas in The Washington Ballet. Can you think of anyone who depends on their toes and feet more than a ballerina? We can’t. So, what are you waiting for? Don’t live with swollen and achy feet one more day. Instead, start having stronger and more beautiful feet with YogaToes®!
They hurt bad this morning! But I have to tell you, after running 2 hrs today they feel really good right now!
I’m going to try for an hour if I feel discomfort, I will abort the test!
**Update** September 19th I haven’t worn the yoga toes in about 2 weeks and the plantar fasciitis flared up again so I will try and wear them a little tonight and tomorrow and see how it works! Not bad considering I am still doing 2 hrs of cardio a day!
Cevich brings a brand new healthy food option to Union Square as New York City’s first grab-n-go Ceviche restaurant. This small but modern and relaxing restaurant offers a variety of dishes that blend traditional Peruvian recipes along with other culinary influences. Cevich’s dishes are fresh, affordable, customizable and gluten-free. Located in one of the city’s most popular neighborhoods, Cevich is close to famous attractions such as the Flatiron Building and Madison Square Park, as well as many boutique and name brand shops. Under the direction of co-owners and operators Reina Laws and Lindsay Goldstein, Cevich will become a trusted brand of the Ceviche product in a rapidly growing food market.
Cevich offers a variety of dishes inspired by the ancient South American cuisine in which fresh fish and seafood is “cold cooked” in a marinade of citrus juices, spices and other ingredients such as chilies, red onions and cilantro. The origins can be traced to the coastal regions of South America and is believed to have been created after Spanish settlers brought citrus trees to the region and Japanese immigrants their new culinary techniques and flavors. Executive Chef Evelyn Alberto executes the menu with sauces made in house daily with local, fresh ingredients. Menu items range from ceviche burritos and tacos to 12 or 16 oz. ceviche bowls and entrée salads.
I got the Ceviche bowl with coconut rice, lime n da coconut (hold the red onion) and shrimp with avocado (not worth the $2 extra couldn’t even find the microscopic pieces) and Rocoto Sofrito hot sauce (that was amazing)
I loved it all except the price welcome to NYC! The food was fresh and light! If you order it with greens it’s perfect for gluten free and low carb diets!
Check this place out for something out of the ordinary and delicious!

I was surprised at how delicious all the food was! The coconut yogurt (fake yogurt like substance) tasted like yogurt even though the wasn’t any dairy in it! The Chocolate Mousse didn’t taste like Chocolate Mousse but it was delicious and the base ingredient is avocado! Which is a staple in my current diet! The Matcha Tea and Chia seed was also delicious! It’s flavors were layered nicely! At $6-8 I would buy all of the products again, but not too often!
The Dragon’s Breath was $4 and wasn’t bad the flavors were layered first the lemon then the ginger and pow the cayenne! I saved it for preworkout and it was nice!
I want to try to reverse engineer it for myself! It seems easy enough to make.
Benefits of Wheatgrass
Some of the superior qualities of wheatgrass and the juice that can be extracted from its blades include the following:
Increases red blood-cell count and lowers blood pressure. It cleanses the blood, organs and gastrointestinal tract of debris. Wheatgrass also stimulates metabolism and the body’s enzyme systems by enriching the blood. It also aids in reducing blood pressure by dilating the blood pathways throughout the body.
Stimulates the thyroid gland, correcting obesity, indigestion, and a host of other complaints.
Restores alkalinity to the blood. The juice’s abundance of alkaline minerals helps reduce over-acidity in the blood. It can be used to relieve many internal pains, and has been used successfully to treat peptic ulcers, ulcerative colitis, constipation, diarrhea, and other complaints of the gastrointestinal tract.
Is a powerful detoxifier, and liver and blood protector. The enzymes and amino acids found in wheatgrass can protect us from carcinogens like no other food or medicine. It strengthens our cells, detoxifies the liver and bloodstream, and chemically neutralizes environmental pollutants.
Fights tumors and neutralizes toxins. Recent studies show that wheatgrass juice has a powerful ability to fight tumors without the usual toxicity of drugs that also inhibit cell-destroying agents. The many active compounds found in grass juice cleanse the blood and neutralize and digest toxins in our cells.
Contains beneficial enzymes. Whether you have a cut finger you want to heal or you desire to lose five pounds…enzymes must do the actual work. The life and abilities of the enzymes found naturally in our bodies can be extended if we help them from the outside by adding exogenous enzymes, like the ones found in wheatgrass juice. Don’t cook it. We can only get the benefits of the many enzymes found in grass by eating it uncooked. Cooking destroys 100 percent of the enzymes in food.
Has remarkable similarity to our own blood. The second important nutritional aspect of chlorophyll is its remarkable similarity to hemoglobin, the compound that carries oxygen in the blood. Dr. Yoshihide Hagiwara, president of the Hagiwara Institute of Health in Japan, is a leading advocate for the use of grass as food and medicine. He reasons that since chlorophyll is soluble in fat particles, and fat particles are absorbed directly into the blood via the lymphatic system, that chlorophyll can also be absorbed in this way. In other words, when the “blood” of plants is absorbed in humans it is transformed into human blood, which transports nutrients to every cell of the body.
When used as a rectal implant, reverses damage from inside the lower bowel. An implant is a small amount of juice held in the lower bowel for about 20 minutes. In the case of illness, wheatgrass implants stimulate a rapid cleansing of the lower bowel and draw out accumulations of debris.
Externally applied to the skin can help eliminate itching almost immediately.
Will soothe sunburned skin and act as a disinfectant. Rubbed into the scalp before a shampoo, it will help mend damaged hair and alleviate itchy, scaly, scalp conditions.
Is soothing and healing for cuts, burns, scrapes, rashes, poison ivy, athlete’s foot, insect bites, boils, sores, open ulcers, tumors, and so on. Use as a poultice and replace every two to four hours.
Works as a sleep aide. Merely place a tray of living wheatgrass near the head of your bed. It will enhance the oxygen in the air and generate healthful negative ions to help you sleep more soundly.

In his book “Health Magic Through Chlorophyll” he mentions several cases where he was able to double the red blood cell count in a matter of days merely by having patients soak in a chlorophyll-water bath. Blood building results occur even more rapidly when patients drink green juices and wheatgrass regularly.
