Product: Organic Wheat Grass Powder
Amazing Grass is truly amazing! I am undergoing chemotherapy and taking a lot of medications with side affects (at least 12 pills/day). One of the worst side affects is the fatigue and weakness that I have felt almost on a daily basis. I even had to quit physical therapy because of the fatigue. There had even been times that the frustration of not being able to do normal activities would make me break down and cry, leaving my boyfriend feeling helpless. One day he told me about Amazing Grass wheat grass powder that you just mix with juice or water. It’s supposed to help your immune system and increase your energy levels. His friend was currently using it and was going to send us a bottle to try.
At this point, I was willing to try anything. When I finally got it, I went straight to the 1 Tbs dosage. I wanted it to start working right away. I didn’t know what to expect. I thought maybe I’d feel like I just had a cup of coffee or took ginseng, but I got none of those feelings. After about two to three weeks of taking the wheat grass, I found myself getting very tired around 4/ 5 o’clock in the afternoon. I thought this was just part of my “normal” fatigue, but as I looked back at the activities I was doing throughout the past week, I realized that I was doing the things that normal people could do on a day-to-day basis. Instead of taking 2-3 days to complete my "to do list,” I was finishing it in a day. I was getting tired because I was able to do A LOT more during the day than I was used to, and I truly believe that Amazing Grass was giving me the energy to do it all. It had to be—it was the ONLY thing that had changed in my life. After five months of not being able to go to physical therapy, I am happy to say that last week I started again and things are going great! I don’t go anywhere without my Amazing Grass and I know I will be using it for the rest of my life!!
