Skin: Slow healing graft heals rapidly

This skin graft has been treated by orthodox methods for six weeks. Clearly, it is healing very slowly and has an unhealthy, poorly perfused surface due to inadequate blood supply. (Fig. 1)

Wheatgrass extract was then applied to the wound surface. Only 2 days later,  the graft is already showing signs of recovery due to improved blood supply. (Figure 2.)

In Fig. 3. the graft has healed completely in just 3 weeks. Other “wounds” almost always respond in a similar way, but it is important not to over treat. Once weekly application is usually sufficient.

How does wheatgrass accelerate wound healing?

Simple observation clearly demonstrates how well wheatgrass extract hastens the healing of wounds due to almost any cause - e.g. burns, injury, venous ulcers. In this case, in just 24-48 hours after application, the wound surface is covered with a thin, protective film of new cells, and blood supply to the area, has been restored. Also pain is significantly reduced or completely eliminated, which is something rarely seen with orthodox treatment methods. The extract has also prevented adhesion of the dressing to the wound, so it can be removed painlessly.

In most cases, because infection is rare, antibiotics are not required. Also, rapid reduction of swelling and absence of dried blood facilitates dressing changes. In my experience, wound infection is a thing of the past.
