I have celiac disease and am unable to do the wheat grass shot, however I may be interested in the cleanse and want to understand if the wheatgrass shot is a necessary part. Ideally I'm hoping to jump start weight loss.

Thanks to my gluten intolerance I was a bit wary of taking wheatgrass for the simple (and self-admittedly ignorant) reason that wheatgrass has the word "wheat" in it. Before purchasing my first shot, it was important to me to check with my primary care doctor to make certain that a person with Celiac or gluten intolerance could indeed enjoy wheatgrass with no negative side effects or ramifications. Luckily, my doctor laughed kindly at me and explained that wheatgrass is a carbohydrate that contains magnesium. He said that there is no gluten in it as the grass top is cut off before juicing and so there is no gluten berry in wheatgrass. He gave me the 100% two thumbs up approval to try wheatgrass and see for myself if it provided benefits. "Won’t hurt ya, might do some good," was the basic response.

You don't have to do the wheatgrass... Just tell ed and he can swap it for some juice. Or alternatively, just don't drink the wheatgrass...its not in the juices...its on the side.
