Frankenwheat, a scientifically engineered food product versus Spelt
Wheat is not the ancient, healthy wheat of Hildegard's time, instead today's crop is totally different than it was even 50 years ago. Since then, wheat has been a victim of more than a thousand hybridizations, chemical changes, gamma ray bombardments and genetic manipulations of its' DNA. This produced the modern high-yield, dwarfed Frankenwheat with many harmful proteins that cause the world's worst health problems and destruction to the human body. By 1985, virtually all wheat in the US and all over the world has been replaced by this new scientific monster, which leads to obesity, diabetes, inflammatory diseases of the whole body, heartburn, acid reflux and painful gastrointestinal diseases like gastritis, colitis, Crohn's and celiac disease.
The wheat germ agglutinins (super-binding proteins) destroy the lining of the intestines leading to leaky gut syndrome the cause of all autoimmune diseases from heart attack to cancer and rheumatoid arthritis. This auto-aggression creates inflammation in all other organs and body cells from head to toe. This modern manipulation of wheat introduced the new gliadins into the grain, which open the opiate receptors in the brain, stimulating a constant appetite leading to severe obesity.
Dr. Mark Hyman, author of the Blood Sugar Solution states:
"This new modern wheat may look like wheat, but it is different in three important ways that all drive obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, dementia and more.
It contains a Super Starch — amylopectin A that is super fattening.
It contains a form of Super Gluten that is super-inflammatory.
It contains forms of a Super Drug that is super-addictive and makes you crave and eat more."
A recent study by the Mayo clinic documents severe dementia as a direct result from our modern wheat. MRI studies evidence wide-spread brain damage and a negative impact on the nervous system. Dr. Joseph A. Murray and his team discovered in another cohort study from the Mayo Clinic with young healthy men from the Air Force, that the prevalence of undiagnosed autoimmune celiac disease has dramatically increased more than 4-fold in the US during the past 50 years. The study is consistend with a recent study in Europe, most likely as a result of the change of wheat genetics, bread processing, and enzymatic modificationof industry food processing in the past 40 years.
Finally, a study from the University of Hohenheim, Germany published during the "Spelt symposium" of 1992 demonstrated that the modern "dwarfed" wheat grows so close to the earth that fungi can contaminate the naked grain producing the world's most poisonous aflatoxins which destroy fertility. Spelt in comparison, grows 5 feet away from the ground, is protected by its' husks and free of aflatoxins.
Norman Borlaug, the „father of the little devil Frankenwheat" received the Nobel Peace Prize for his effort to save over a billion people from starvation. 50 years later hunger is still prevalent, but this GMO wheat leaves the people fat, sick or dement.
What can we do?
The visionary power of Hildegard's teaching was revealed to the world 850 years ago when she wrote: "Spelt is the optimal grain." The pope Benedikt XVI. appointed on October 7th 2012 St. Hildegard as the teacher of the universal church. Between Dr. Gottfried Hertzka MD and myself, we accumulated 80 years of practical experience using spelt as a remedy and have seen evidence that spelt can heal and prevent the above described diseases. Just exchange modern wheat with spelt in all your recipes. Spelt is a tasty substitute for wheat in all baking and cooking recipes for spelt breads, cakes, pizzas, pancakes, pasta, cereal etc. With spelt, the shift away from wheat is easily implemented in the kitchen, unlike with some other gluten-free products.
Unlike Frankenwheat, the ancient DNA of spelt has remained unchanged and was never hybridized with wheat for the last 5000 years. Spelt is a universal remedy that prevents the aforementioned diseases, protects your health, increases energy, improves mood and leads to stronger bones and joints and a happier disposition of body and soul.
