Editorial Reviews

Review

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 book "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 of them. Your thorough command of the subject and your easy-to-understand writing style and lots of pictures make it ideal for the person just starting out. And it's great for us experts too. -Best regards, --Richard Rommer, Gourmet Greens, Chester, VT

Dear Steve, What a wonderful job you have done with "Wheatgrass Nature's Finest Medicine". I have been selling Dr. Ann's (Wheatgrass) book for years, but yours is far superior. --Kathleen Garrett, Wheatgrass Express, Gainesville, Florida

From the Author

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 24 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 nutritional supplements.

By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book is jam packed with information of not only the history of grass but also with resources on where to get the organic seeds. You will be introduced to other types of grasses,different ways to use the grass instead of the traditional juicing, alternative ways to grow wheatgrass, and many many resources on where to find everything you would need to grow and juice your own. He also includes resources on where you can have fresh grass delivered right to your door! Steve loaded this book with research, interesting quotes, and my favorite part...options! In conjunction with the wheatgrass book by Ann Wigmore, everything you would want to know about wheatgrass is found in these two books.

3.0 out of 5 stars Over the Top? November 19, 2002
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's hard to know what to say about this book. It includes research abstracts and practical advice about incorporating wheat grass juice into your diet, but it comes close to attributing mystical properties to wheat grass, which seems to me to be a little over the top. If you are thinking of buying this book, it is probably because you or someone close to you has cancer or some other serious health problem. If you want to add wheat grass juice to a good nutrition plan and good medical care, this book will be helpful. If you are looking for a magic bullet or a miracle cure, this book might convince you that you've found it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lots Of Hype And Little Substance September 26, 2001
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When a book is entitled "Wheatgrass: Natures Finest Medicine" you expect the author to be enthusiastic about wheatgrass, but this book goes beyond enthusiasm and into cultishness. Other than a few tables of nutritional information, there is little factual information about wheatgrass. Nutrition isn't even discussed until the fifth chapter - after chapters extolling the great leaders of the wheatgrass movement and promoting the spiritual value of consuming wheatgrass, including comments about revitalizing your cosmic cell consciousness, and how Jesus (as recorded in secret gospels) encouraged his disciples to chew grass. Then there are the many true life stories of miraculous healings from cancer and spiritual awakenings obtained by eating wheatgrass, not to mention a lengthy promotion of various health and spiritual renewal sanctuaries and resorts. It may well be true that wheatgrass is a wonderful health food, but this book contains so much hype that even what substance there is becomes suspect.

Format:Paperback
Excellent book, I have marginal zone b-cell cancer and hep c from vietnam, I am currently working with my traditional medical Dr's. but also using as much natural medicine as I can find.

I 1st had to get my blood levels healthy enough to be able to be treated with traditional medicine, I believe this was done thanks to the info in this book helping me to process wheatgrass to juice and helping me to grow my own wheatgrass as it is not readily available in the town I live in.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent source of information May 18, 2000
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you have ever been curious about wheat grass then this is a very good book. It's now the rage at all the juice bars even at the mall. The book explains the different types of grass, why one is better than another and what to avoid. I now have a much sharper eye and always demand to see the wheat grass before it gets pressed. I avoid the juice bars with ignorant kids working at them because they don't know what they are doing and so why waste my time. It's not preachy and I also appreciate that too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wheat Grass: Sharing the news May 21, 2000
Format:Paperback
Dear Steve, Thank you for writing this wonderfully informative and well researched book. The title is inspirational and the content educational. We were fascinated by the history section. My husband and I have both benefited so much from taking our precious "green gold" that we are committed to telling others about wheat grass and your book. We are sharing the information by loaning copies of your book to people who are part of our lives(we bought 40 copies). Your keen interest, knowledge and enthusiasm for the use of wheat grass to maintain health and prevent disease as well as it's therapeutic benefits is evident to the reader. Would you consider a sequel?

More About the Author

Steve was pronounced "Sproutman" by Vegetarian Times Magazine in a 1979 feature article that explored the why's and wherefores of his 100% sprout diet. While over 2 decades time, most diets change, Steve is still a big "believer" in healthy diet and lifestyle.

Steve got interested in natural foods after a 20 year effort to correct chronic allergies and asthma with conventional medicine. He made dramatic changes in his diet and within two months of eating a strict "living foods," vegetarian diet, his lifelong symptoms vanished. He continued to practice a 100% raw foods diet (nothing cooked, packaged, canned, frozen, or processed) for five years. During that time, he also experimented with other extreme diets such as fruitarianism (just fruit), juice fasting for as long as 100 days, and briefly, breatharianism (no food, no water).

Steve's innovative kitchen gardening techniques and the cuisine he developed from them, gave rise to a "School for Sprouts." He began teaching indoor gardening 12 stories above the streets of New York City. He called his no-cooking school, The Sprout House, since so much of his cuisine included vegetables from his kitchen garden-sprouts. Steve invented two home sprouters, The Flax Sprout Bag and a tabletop greenhouse called, Sproutman's Kitchen Garden Salad Grower. He also supplied his growing kits and a full line of organic sprouting seeds via mail order.

Steve has since sold the mail order business and he and his family now breathe fresher air in the Berkshire mountains of Massachusetts. Much of the information from his teaching years have been related in his books. He has the most popular books on sprouts, including Sprouts the Miracle Food, Sproutman's Kitchen Garden Cookbook, and Wheatgrass Nature's Finest Medicine, to name a few. But he also has other books on subjects such as fasting and raw juice therapy.

Steve has been featured on PBS, the Home Shopping Network, TV Food Network, and in Prevention, Better Nutrition, and Organic Gardening magazines. In 3 minutes on QVC, 953 people ordered his Cookbook and Kitchen Garden Salad Grower. You can visit him at http://www.Sproutman.com/
