Spelt, the healthy aging food

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’ s nutritional and medicinal properties compared to other grains such as rice, wheat, oats, and rye.

I first introduced the spelt diet in the year 2006 to people in Singapore and some parts of Asia under the mentorship of Dr Wighard Strehlow of Hildegard clinic in Germany.

I am happy to know that there is greater awareness of spelt in the health food market. However, there are also many modified or hydridized spelt products in the market.

圣希尔德嘉德(Saint Hildegard),德国宾根人是德国第一位女医师,亦是欧洲草药学的支柱之一。她是本笃会修女院主持、疗愈师、草药师、作曲家、植物学家,亦是一名有远见的领袖。

德国麦(Triticum spelta)不是现代小麦(Triticum sativa)。虽然圣经旧约中提到了德国麦,九千多年前人类就在吃这谷物,但首位将这古老的粮食当作草药宣扬出来的是圣希尔德嘉德。感谢她在她的著作中记载德国麦,使其得以流传至今。

科学研究和欧洲临床实验已证实,比起小麦、燕麦或黑麦,德国麦的营养价值和药用性来的更高。
“德国麦饮食”是廖伟棠医学草药师,在德国希尔德嘉德诊所(Hildegard clinic)的维和•史瑞洛博士 (Dr. Wighard Strehlow) 指导下, 2006年首次引入新加坡和亚洲部分地区的。
