I receive numerous emails from around the world seeking assistance with various medical conditions. I am always happy to help if I can, and even happier when I ask for and receive a supportive testimonial. I now have a substantial collection – many thousands of them, for which I am very grateful. These anecdotes are important from my point of view because they show that wheatgrass works on its own account – not by placebo effect.
Also, they reaffirm my own position on wheatgrass healing and I learn about healing effects in conditions I have not yet tried wheatgrass for. For instance a naturopath from Western Australia, my home State, called to let me know that she had been treating seven patients with Crohn’s disease, a long-term, chronic disorder of the intestine whose underlying cause is unknown, with wheatgrass. (There have been suggestions that it is autoimmune in origin.) She was treating a common complication of the disease – perianal fissures and fistulas – and they had all healed. That’s quite a feat considering there are no pharmaceutical products that can achieve a similar result.
