It is widely known that wheatgrass improves your state of health but it’s not because of its nutritional content. Also, chlorophyll neither carries oxygen nor cleanses your liver. It is a plant pigment responsible for oxygen production, but it does nothing to make you feel better or live longer!
There is something much more important in this simple herb that facilitates recovery for many conditions.
Although there are numerous ways wheatgrass can improve your quality of life, it is of course no panacea. However, there are many ways it can help heal or improve conditions where pharmaceuticals and other remedies don’t work. Also, by taking wheatgrass in any form, fresh juice, tablets, powder or liquid supplements and persevering with it, you can be almost certain you will do a lot for your general health and wellbeing.
It appears that wheatgrass works by activating growth factors that have a powerful effect at the cell membrane. What results is a broad spectrum of physiological and biochemical effects that can boost your immune system, stimulate your bone marrow (blood production), and kill cancer cells (at least in laboratory studies). Taking wheatgrass can also reduce the side effects of chemotherapy
The topical effects of wheatgrass can be equally amazing. For instance, in eczema, psoriasis, molluscum contagiosum and anal fissure. Wheatgrass is also about to revolutionise wound and ulcer treatment as it did in the 1930’s. Non or slow healing leg ulcers, e.g. venous, arterial, diabetic, can all heal or be helped to heal naturally with wheatgrass.
Recently we completed a clinical study in India using wheatgrass extract for healing ulcers in leprosy patients. Other than surgery, nothing has ever been found to heal these ulcers. 60% of these ulcers healed completely, some of which had been present for 30 years. Because there are still many leprosy sufferers around the world, this constitutes an important medical breakthrough.
Other topical uses include reduced skin toxicity (pain, inflammation and blistering) in cancer and other patients having radiotherapy and for the effective treatment of burns.
Another major area of bioactivity is soft tissue injury recovery. Traumatic bleeding into the deep and superficial tissues is the major cause of prolonged recovery. Because wheatgrass penetrates the skin and deep tissues and stops bleeding, recovery rates can be remarkably accelerated.
