Mechanized Threshing Skips an Important Step

This photo was taken at the Young Living farm in Mona, Utah, showing Gary harvesting oats the old-fashioned way.

This photo was color touched because it was taken about 100 years ago when I was 20 years old. Actually, this is when I was cutting oats at the farm in Utah. We cut them that way this year; and if you come to the harvest in September, you will see it. We also thresh it the old-fashioned way.

I’m going to tell you a little secret that’s really important. You’ll read about it in my book as well. In ancient times when grain was first harvested, they didn’t have mechanical, mechanized equipment; so they would go into the field and cut the grain with scythes. They discovered that if they waited until the kernels were ripe and then hit them with the scythe to cut them, the kernels would fall out of the husk. So they realized that in order to capture the kernels, they had to cut the grain while it was still green. Then when they put the scythe through it, the kernels didn’t shake out of the husk.

They then tied the grain into bundles and stood them up, so the grain could finish maturing. There was a secret element that evolved in that grain, and that was called “enzymatic activity.” So as it stood there the seven days while it was maturing, guess what? The dew would come on at night and dry off with the sun in the day; or it would maybe rain on the grain during the afternoon or night, and then the next day the sun would come out and would dry it. Well, this process of moisture or dampness and drying caused the kernels to germinate. When they germinated, they activated the enzymes; so when people ate the kernels, they could digest them. It was that simple.

But people said that wasn’t good enough. We had to produce more food, so we had to mechanize, we had to speed up the process, and we had to reduce the costs. So they came out with the big combines back in the late 1920s, where the first 82-horse-drawn combines rolled through the fields of the Midwest. Then it just kept evolving from there.

What is a combine? A combine cuts and threshes the grain on the same day. So they wait until the grain is in a mature state, and then the combines come in and cut it and thresh it. That kernel never gets a chance to mature or germinate to activate the enzymes that facilitate the digestion process.

The Original Staff of Life

Hybrid wheat gives the farmer more grain to sell. But in this case, more is not better! It is not more nutritious, and it is not more healthful. Hybrid wheat is worse than empty calories.

It’s time to return to our ancestral staff of life before geneticists begin manipulating its DNA. Einkorn, the food of ancient civilization, with a natural, unmodified 14 chromosome DNA will impact our future in a positive way.

This is a picture of the wheat head that I took from the field in Morocco. On the left is the nonhybridized grain, and on the right is the American hybridized wheat. Look at the difference.

The one on the left stood on a stalk that was almost 5 feet tall, an average of 44 inches; and the one on the right, the American hybridized wheat—they called it American wheat in Morocco—was an average of 14 inches, typically.

The kernels are bigger. Why? Because it was genetically engineered to where it would create more production for less ground planted, and that’s what they’ve created. There was no concern about how it affected human life, just how much money could be made with it.

Triticum monococcum, einkorn, is an ancient grain and a potential candidate for replacing hybrid wheat, having no toxicity. Is that exciting?

Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight!

How many of you here have absolutely given up bread and sworn off from bread totally, 100 percent? Wow, fantastic. All 7 of you.

I have to say, it was really interesting walking through our meetings where food has been served the last three days and seeing how much bread was left in the bowls, which I never saw left in the bowls in the past. I am so proud of all of you. Now, I’m hoping that’s because of discipline, not because of feeling guilty because Gary’s talking about it. Those of you who have been with me before know that I bring you truth; you know that I bring you information to give you a better life and better health.

I got asked yesterday by a beautiful doctor: “Gary, I’ve watched you move on stage. I know what happened to your back last year; I saw the scans. How do you do it?”

If I ate like everybody else, I probably wouldn’t do it. If I didn’t use oils every day, I wouldn’t be able to do it. It’s that simple. They’re my life support. We are what we eat. We are what we think. We are what we dwell on.

Peptides with opiate activity are found in wheat gluten. Bread gives us the munchies. Boy, you go to a hamburger joint, and you want to keep eating.

Among the 30 patients who eliminated wheat in Dr. Davis’ clinic, the average weight loss was 26.7 pounds over 6 months. If you haven’t read Dr. Davis’ book, Wheat Belly, you need to. There are many, many good books out there to read for information.

Marco gave up man-made wheat. Before, you see him sitting there with his wife and his little daughter; then look on the right. There he is, slim and trim. What a difference just eliminating wheat out of his diet made.

Beware the Sugar Crash!

It’s hard to believe, but wheat spikes your blood sugar more than ice cream!

It’s hard to believe, but wheat spikes your blood sugar more than ice cream!

Top foods that spike blood sugar are bread, pasta, cereal, potatoes, and rice. Now you’re sitting there looking at all this and saying, “Gary, what are we supposed to eat?” Eat Einkorn spaghetti and pancakes and drink NingXia Red and NingXia Nitro. That’s all you need in life.

Here are foods that spike blood sugar—look at this: ice cream, regular, 57. Wonder™ bread, 73. Whole wheat bread, an average of 71. Isn’t that astounding? Wheat spikes your blood sugar faster than ice cream. Now don’t get the wrong idea here. That doesn’t mean that you trade bread for ice cream, and no ice cream on your Einkorn pancakes in the morning.

A sugar crash or glucose crash. What does that mean? That means you’ve eaten something that has spiked the glucose in your blood; it’s gone off the Richter scale.

The pancreas has to do double time now, injecting the insulin hormone in there to bring that glucose back down. When it does that, it always produces more insulin than what the body needs; but the pancreas says, hey, I can’t determine whether you need 60 percent or 80 percent insulin; I’ll just dump a whole truckload in there so that I can get that blood glucose back down before something happens. That excess insulin that is discharged into your bloodstream causes the body to retain fluids and store fat. Simple as that. Then after the blood sugar starts coming back down because now the insulin is in there and it’s starting to regulate, you have a crash.

So when we’re eating bread, we’re spiking our blood sugar. Then our pancreas has to produce more insulin, maybe 2, 3, 5, or 10 times more insulin to counteract it and bring it back into a normal state.

What happens when you have a sugar crash? You’re sitting at your computer and all of a sudden the lights go out, or you have a hard time getting out of bed in the morning.

Eat Healthy and Use Essential Oils

When asked how to use the oils, Gary has said, "Just open the bottle!" Inhale them, put them on your feet, find out what works for you!

If you want to be healthy, then you’ve got to eat healthy. You’ve got to think healthy. You’ve got to be excited about life. You need to use essential oils.

People ask me, “Gary, how should I put the oils on?” Just put them on! It’s a no-brainer. Simple. Try rubbing them on your feet. Really simple. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out how to use oils.

I’ve had so many distributors come and say, “Oh Gary, I just don’t know how to use the oils.”

“Open the bottle. Start with that.”

“But there’s so much to know.”

I said, “I know. I’m still trying to know.” If I had waited until I knew it all, you wouldn’t be sitting here today. You’d still be waiting for me to know it all; and probably by the time I leave this life, I’ll just be figuring out how little I do know.
