A Conversation for Oats

In a deep depression in 2004, I took some dry `OATSTRAW`, mixed it with some yoghurt.
Véry unexpectedly a great calm came over me, while my chest went wide open=sitting up straight. All by itself, completely unexpected !

I continually try things in my life and most of it doesn't do me any good. Things have to prove themselves to me.

But this is véry strange, because I eat big amounts of oatmeals in a week, as breakfast. It really gives me lot of energy, but it is nót a nerv-tonic at all for me.

So OAT STRAW seems to be doing a very different and effective job. There are NO seeds in my oatstraw.(Avena Sativa)

I just took about 5 grams.(in my life, that's a little)

Quote from an article on internet,

`Oat straw (AVENA SATIVA) ánd the grain are prescribed to treat general debility and a wide range of nervous conditions.
They are mildly antidepressant, gently raising energy levels and supporting an over-stressed nervous system.
It feeds, restores ánd calms our nervesystem`. End Quote


Grain of the Oat plant is not the same as oatmeal. Oatmeal is obvious from the oatplant, but oatmeal is grain that has been strongly manipluated after the harvest to make it eatable. Many ingrediënts get lost that way, as far as I understand from comments at the internet / universaties, etc.'


So oatstraw (the plant above the ground)does the calming and healing job ánd the pure oat-seeds have that potential aswell, but it has to be treated in súch a way, that it contains the same specific elements as the oatstraw.

It is really worth trying.

According to what I understand from research sites at the internet is,that when they want the seeds to be used as anti-depressant, they take the seeds while they are green and not ripe.

Fascinating information Alfredo. So, you actually eat the oat straw? How interesting. I can see why you'd need to mix it with something like yoghurt - it must be very dry. Sounds like an amazing effect though.
