Diabetic foot ulcer heals in 2 months

Fig. 1. Diabetic forefoot ulcer present 4 months in a 49 yo male. Unresponsive to orthodox treatment. Commenced daily application of Wheatgrass extract. Note hematoma (blood clot) bulging upwards from ulcer centre.

Fig. 2. Same patient  after 2 days’ application of wheatgrass solution.  Note that the hematoma has burst, blood clot resolved and new skin is encroaching on the ulcer surface around its upper and central margins. The remaining ulcer surface is well vascularised and vital.

Fig. 3. Same patient two weeks after daily application of wheatgrass extract. New skin has filled about 90% of the ulcer surface and vascularisation is no longer visible. The wound is clean and exudate minimal.

Fig. 4. Same patient four weeks after daily application of wheatgrass extract. Ulcer is completely filled and lesion markedly reduced in size. No exudate.

Fig. 5. Same patient six weeks after daily application of wheatgrass extract. Ulcer is completely filled and lesion markedly reduced in size. No exudate.

Fig. 6. At eight weeks, only some callus remains. The ulcer has completely healed. The patient has been ambulant throughout the wheatgrass treatment period.
