As many of you know, I LOVE chlorophyll. I drink it almost daily and many of you have asked about the strange dark green drink. The following is the key to healing from green plant chlorophyll.
Green foods are power plants for humans. Our body chemistry comes from plant nutrients because plant chlorophyll, one of the most powerful nutrients on the planet, transmits the energies of the sun and the soil to our bodies. The sun is the energy source of the Earth and plants constitute the most direct method of converting this energy into a form our bodies can use. Fruits, vegetables, grains and grasses reach out to us on branches and stems, making themselves beautiful and nourishing to attract us. Plants have no fear of being eaten as animals do. The life energy of plants simply transmutes into the higher life form of mankind.
Chlorophyll offers amazing healing benefits for humans. The most therapeutic ingredient in green foods is chlorophyll, the basic component of the “blood” of plants. Chlorophyll is the pigment that plants use to carry out photosynthesis absorbing the light energy from the sun, and converting it into plant energy. This energy is transferred into our cells and blood when we consume fresh greens. Chlorophyll is in all green plants, but is particularly rich in green and blue-green algae, wheat grass, parsley and alfalfa.
Our blood has a unique affinity to chlorophyll. The chlorophyll molecule is remarkably similar to human hemoglobin in composition, except that it carries magnesium in its center instead of iron. Eating chlorophyll rich foods helps our bodies build oxygen-carrying red blood cells. In that regard, eating greens is almost like giving yourself a little transfusion to help treat illness and enhance immunity.
Chlorophyll is the best tonic for tired blood. It calms the nerves, so it is helpful for insomnia, exhaustion and nervous irritability. It is beneficial for skin disorders, helps you cope with deep infections and dental problems like pyorrhea. Its antibacterial qualities are a proven remedy for colds, ear infections and chest inflammation.
Chlorophyll detoxes your liver. It helps neutralize and remove drug deposits and purifies the blood. For example, practitioners recommend chlorophyll as a means of removing heavy metal buildup because its binding properties assist in removing them from our bodies. Chlorophyll was used as a blood substitute in the Pacific Islands during World War II and a U.S. Army study reveals that a chlorophyll-rich diet protects against chemical exposures.
Chlorophyll is rich in vitamin K, necessary for blood clotting and is used as a supplement for women with heavy menstrual bleeding and anemia. Vitamin K helps form a compound in urine that inhibits growth of calcium oxalate crystals helping to diminish kidney stones. Vitamin K also enhances adrenal activity, so chlorophyll helps to maintain steroid balance, and decreases inflammation, for a more youthful body.
Chlorophyll has antiviral effects that make it great for you this flu season. The research also indicated that chlorophyll can assist in prevention of shingles and decrease the risk of developing skin cancer.
