‘Spelt is the best grain, warming, lubricating and of high nutritional value. It is better tolerated by the body than any other grains. Spelt provides its consumer with good flesh and good blood and confers a cheerful disposition. It provides a happy mind and a joyful spirit. No matter how you eat spelt, either as bread or in other foods, it is good and easy to digest’
Saint Hildegard of Bingen, (1098-1179)
Benedictine abbess, healer, herbalist, composer, botanist, and visionary, Saint Hildegard of Bingen was the first German women physician and one of the pillars of European herbal medicine. Triticum spelta or spelt is not modern wheat (Triticum sativa). Though spelt is mentioned in the old testament of the Bible and consumed by people more than 9000 years ago, thanks to her published works, Hildegard was the first to teach spelt, the ancient grain, as a medicinal food.
Scientific studies and clinical works in Europe have revealed the superiority of spelt nutritional and medicinal properties compared to other grains such as rice, wheat, oats, and rye.
Spelt is used effectively by thousands of patients in Germany for over 30 years by Dr Hertzka and Strehow to treat numerous diseases like Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, celiac disease, gastrointestinal diseases, colitis, diverticulitis, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, allergies, obesity, high cholesterol, angina, herpes, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, cancer and pre-cancer stage, depression and drug poisoning. 80% of all healing successes are related to the spelt diet.
The spelt diet was first introduced in the year 2006 to people in Singapore and some parts of Asia by Sebastian Liew, a medical herbalist under the mentorship of Dr Wighard Strehlow of Hildegard clinic in Germany.
