A bunch of grapes is the get-well present
that British people take to their sick friends
in the hospital: they could do nothing better
for them. Grapes are a uniquely nourishing,
strengthening, cleansing, and regenerative
food, useful in convalescence.
Grapes are also excellent for easing the
symptoms of anemia, fatigue, and disorders
such as arthritis, gout, and rheumatism,
which may result from poor elimination
of waste products, such as urine. The
nutritive powers of grapes were conﬁ rmed
by Mahatma Gandhi, who drank grape juice
during his marathon fasts.
In 1926, South African natural healer
Johanna Brandt pioneered the grape cure,
after claiming to have cured herself of
cancer with its help: for weeks on end,
she ate nothing but fresh grapes. European
nature clinics have obtained excellent
results using a grape mono-fast to treat a
range of ailments, including skin problems,disorders of the urinary system, arthritis,
and gout. A two-day grape mono-fast every ten days is recommended for those wanting
to lose weight.Grapes should be eaten on their own, and not as part of a meal. This is because they
ferment rapidly in the stomach. Chewing grapes is also recommended to help alleviate
infected gums.Grapeseed oil, now increasingly seen on supermarket shelves, is rich in
polyunsaturated fats and vitamin E. It’s also highly heat-stable, even in prolonged
cooking at modest temperatures.It is important to note that most grapes are
sprayed incessantly with pesticides during the superfoodscultivation.
Bearing this in mind, it is vital that you wash grapes very carefully before eating them.
