I am a big fan of naturopathy and my favorite discovery has been with the wonder grain – Wheat! There are way too many benefits of this grain to share in one go, so I will start with one.
Being an always busy person with limited time at hand, elaborate home cures are way out of the picture.
So this time saving, and amazingly healing recipe is one of my favorites – it can cure dengue, chronic indigestion problems, hair loss, weight loss issues, it gives you great skin and great feeling from inside.
The wheat grain water or the Indian REJUVELAC – enzyme rich, pro-biotic health drink.
Rejuvelac is the fermented water of the wheat grains. It should be yellowish, cloudy and tart, without being too sour, and slightly carbonated.
Place wheat grains to a 1/3rd level in a tall glass jar. Fill the rest of the glass with water and cover top with cheesecloth/tissue paper or just leave it open overnight.
Soak at room temperature for 12 hours minimum.
Strain the water out in a fresh glass next morning, and drink up with a dash of lemon if you like.
A second batch may be made by filling the same jar and repeating the same process; and a third batch, by filling again. You can reuse the same grains to make your drink for the next 3 to 4 days.
Usually under the Indian weather conditions, After the 3rd or the 4th batch, the wheat grains will be best used outside as bird food.
Reasons why this is a wonder drink for your body:
- Fermented food is filled with enzymes. Rejuvelac is THE enzyme drink!
- Enzymes are life lengthening!
- Rejuvelac is a pre-digested food. This means that proteins are broken down into amino acids and carbohydrates into simple sugars. All nutrients are assimilated very soon after drinking without loss of energy.
- It helps increasing the platelets in the blood (personal experience with dengue patients and their platelet count went up in a jiffy)
- Drinking rejuvelac helps digestion and is a very effective cure for stomach and colon problems.
- Use Rejuvelac instead of water in your smoothies and drink some glasses in between meals to cleanse your colon, flush your system and to gain energy.
- Rejuvelac is a natural pro-biotic: the enzymes help the friendly bacteria such as lactobacillus bifidus to grow.
- Your colon becomes cleaner by drinking rejuvelac every day: it prevents sludge to collect on the colon walls.
- The cleaner your colon, the less chance diseases will arise and the healthier you will be.
- Rejuvelac contains eight of the B vitamins, vitamins E and K, and a variety of proteins, dextrines, carbohydrates, phosphates, saccharines and amylases. It is rich in enzymes that assist both your digestion, and the growth of friendly bacteria such as lactobacillus bifidus. Lactobacillus produces a lactic acid that helps your colon maintain its natural, vitamin-producing facility. It also helps cleanse your intestinal tract.
- And last but not least: it is very easy and cheap to make!
