Ponce de Leon, and the Fountain of Youth

Yesterday, a local health guru told me that he was doing everything he could to stay young and vibrant and now he was just afraid of how long he would live. Would he live well into his 100's? Maybe that would be too long? Not long ago we published one of Ann Wigmore's articles in our Wheatgrass Habit Newsletter. The title is Life Extention through Wheatgrass. She states that she regained her youth through a living food diet and wheatgrass.

She stated "In wheatgrass, raw foods, and exercise, I found what I feel is as close to the fountain of youth as we are going to get. Twenty-five years after my discovery, my hair has turned fully naturally brown again. My weight has been a stable 119 (the same as it was in my youth), and my energy level is limitless. For the past ten years I have required an average of only four hours of sleep a night, and I haven’t needed the services of a physician in years. My work has taken me all over the world on many demanding tours, sometimes for months at a time. Yet, I have more energy than I can ever remember having as a child – and I am no child at 76.What I have discovered can help you, too. But instead of taking my word for it, examine what I have to say carefully, and then if you are so inclined, try it for yourself.

As in the days of Ponce de Leon, humans everywhere are still in hot pursuit of the fountain of eternal youth. One drink from this magic fountain, it was believed, would restore youthful appearance, outlook and vigor. Despite the fact that scientists have now discovered over a hundred chemical elements and thousands of factors that play a role in nutrition and health, they are not even one step closer to realizing the dream of eternal youth than Ponce de Leon was five hundred years ago. In fact when you consider the rising incidence of degenerative disease in our society, you could say we have taken a few steps in the opposite direction. Yet, in wheatgrass, I believe we have a veritable fountain of youth available to us. "

To Youth!
