LOL

I'm still in the UK, and don't eat enough greens. I think the planet will survive my attack of *ahem* good intentions...

PS - thanks for the tip ButtonMoon.

Well I've only ever had one shot of wheatgrass and I had to avoid naked flames for 8 days. I was totally shocked at the effect and the noise...

I suffered the same effect once after eating 65 pickles to win a drunken bet. Had enough gas next day to put Calor to shame.
Spent a lot of time half sumerged in the bath watching the bubbles.

Well, that was due to your reference to smoking. It won't do a thing for your bad breathe if you keep smoking and you probably wouldn't need help recovering from cancer if you didn't smoke either.

By the way, I notice you haven't told anyone about the possible side effects. Although the health food shops tell you that there are 'No Side Effects' there actually are. Chest pains, anyone?


Side Effects: Stop taking your medicine right away and talk to your doctor if you have any of the following side effects. Your medicine may be causing these symptoms which may mean you are allergic to it.

Breathing problems or tightness in your throat or chest
Chest pain
Skin hives, rash, or itchy or swollen skin


Chlorophyll Side Effects

Tell me Steve, in the cup of life is your's half full or half empty ?

Having spent many hours on the net researching wheatgrass and its benefits, i wish to report as follows :

The reason why we take wheatgrass at the juice bars is because it claims benefits to your health.However unless you take it daily you will probably notice no diferrence.
Wheatgrass is 70% pure chlorophyll, which is the reason it is so good for you.
I bought some liquid chlorophyll from the health food store ( $12.95 500ml) and started taking 15ml a day in herbal tea, juices shakes whatever, even diluted in my water bottle.
I can honestly say that it has had increadable benefits for me.
Look, just do a search on the net for chlorophyll.
Change you life today and i guarantee in a weeks time,you will have more energy ( Tired with twins take note),bad breath and body odour...gone..skin clear and soft.Feel bloody marvelous.I switched my mum onto it .she is recovering from cancer.She has noticed a big increase in her energy levels.
Chlorophyll cleans internally, especially the bowel,promotes oxygenation of the blood and consumes carbon dioxide and bacteria at alarming rates.

Just do it and post a reply seven days after you start.
This isn't a gimmick and i don't sell the stuff

An update from me, I feel GREAT!!!

Been on it 11 days, modified my diet to be a little healthier and walk everyday. Fab.

Anyone else feel good?

I hope to be a new woman when I step off the plane at Heathrow in March 2004!

Anyone heard of or used Spirulina? Supposed to be equally as good as Wheatgrass but is a type of algae. Tastes like s**t though.

Good to hear it's kicking in merlot,it does make you feel good doesn't it ?
I've found the liquid chlorophyll to be the most cost effective and the most effective results.
Don't know if it is available in the UK as a liquid form...any helpers ?
One of the reasons for the energy burst is that chlorophyll's chemical structure stimulates oxygenation of the blood, clears out carbon dioxide and attacks un health bacteria in the bowels.
If you can't get hold of it or don't like the taste, try 1kg of fresh spinach leaves a day...it has the same effect..!

can reliably inform all uk chlorophyll buyers, holland and barrett dont sell it, nor do they do wheatgrass. The nearest they do is chlorilla(?), which according to label is pretty much the same thing - thing is it costs about 16 quid!!
alfalfa sprout anyone??

It doesn't mention any side effects on the bottle so I was quite alarmed to read that if you are pregnant or intending to get pregnant (just a little twinkle in the eye at present) then you should contact your doctor.

I am assuming that it would have something to do with the effect it has on the blood? Any medical peeps got any idea?

The natural health food industry is highly unregulated. A lot of herbal supplements would not pass tests that the pharmaceutical industry have to undertake.

Another one to watch out for is st Johns Wart.

It also has problems mixed with other medicine.

Natural <> no probs.

diane,

have also found many websites indicating chlorophyll is safe to use during pregnancy and is sometimes given to pregnant women to build haemoglobin,prevevt blood clots and reduce the risk of hemmoerages.
it has also been used to enable women to get pregnant who have a low haemoglobin count.
I guess as with all medication and medicines, you should consult with your doctor ( if he knows anything about herbal supplements)if you are pregnant or trying to get pregnant.
I would speak to a naturopath if you have concerns

probably because it is.

fitness and state of mind is far more important than these miracle cures.
