Before we discuss how I believe my wheatgrass extract (much more potent than wheatgrass juice!) works, please take a quick lood at this list of conditions which will give you a very good idea of just how remarkable a treatment it is. Thousands of patients around the world have sent me a ton of "before and after" photos and/or written testimonials expressing their thanks since 1995 for helping to heal or improve their (and others') medical conditions or injuries - usually after standard treatments failed. (My contact address will reach me any time and my advice is free. I get my kicks out of seeing the extract work!)

it is also important to know that the wheatgrass extract I use is not wheatgrass "juice". In fact, it is a highly functional and therapeutically effective liquid that takes many months to produce.

On this site there are many (more than 80) conditions presented where the extract has worked very well, often when standard medical treatments have failed. For example, venous leg ulcers, second-degree burns, and even leprosy ulcers. There are many others I haven't published yet.

For a simple example, Figure 1 shows how effectively the extract can accelerate healing and relieve pain from a minor second-degree burn, almost instantaneously. Note that it has also kept the blister intact, (it hasn't burst), thereby protecting the wound from infection. This is a very minor burn compared with Figure 2, where a severe radiation burn has healed rapidly and relieved the patient's pain. (The extract is so potentially useful in any home, car, office or workplace.)

In Figure 2, the patient has suffered severe, deep radiation treatment burns that would, in most cases, take weeks or even months to heal. However, as you can see in Figure 2, wheatgrass extract has significantly relieved the patient's pain.

But, how could such a "simple" plant extract so rapidly ease or eliminate pain as well as assist recovery of burn-damaged tissue, as shown in Figure 2? Note, on the right, there is no sign of inflammation. Also, the patient is pain-free and the burn wounds have completely healed - after two weeks' treatment with the extract. A rare recovery indeed from the pain of deep radiation therapy. (View the case.)

How I believe wheatgrass extract heals

The extract, that I've used therapeutically for healing and restoring a very broad spectrum of illnesses and injuries since 1995, has been proven to contain at least 20 ligands. These ligands then appear to reactivate damaged cellular receptors (present throughout the body) enabling them to return to signalling the brain of any dysfunctional areas in the body. The brain then responds and corrects the malfunction. (See diagram).

For instance, the following list of conditions demonstrates how rapidly and effectively the extract can achieve recovery. (Please note, wheatgrass juice, unlike wheatgrass extract, does not have this ability.)

A famous scientist proves wheatgrass extract influences gene expression. An important discovery
Prof. Panos Ioannou

On 28th July, 2004, Professor Panos Ioannou, at the Murdoch Children's Research Institute in Melbourne, proved that my wheatgrass extract he had been testing, had induced fetal hemoglobin in murine mice, showing that it strongly influenced gene expression. This is the process whereby encoded information contained in a gene, signals the brain acting as a type of “on/off switch”. Carefully regulated, changes occur according to the requirements of a numerous variety of biological processes.

(See Figure 3 for graphic explanation of the professor's discovery.)

He continued: "These results, albeit in vitro, increased the possibility that the beneficial effects of freshly juiced wheatgrass noted by Marwaha, et al. [an Indian hematologist], may have been due to the induction of gamma-globin chain synthesis leading to greater fetal hemoglobin content in the red cell (via the influence of gene expression)." 

"Clearly, this hypothesis needs further study, but it holds the promise of some very exciting and simple therapeutic possibilities that may preclude the need for repeated blood transfusions.”

Fig. 3. July 2004. Professor Ioannou: Our measurements suggest a 3-5 fold increase in the production of fetal hemoglobin by the wheatgrass extract. This is a substantial increase and could certainly provide an explanation why some thalassaemic patients may derive significant benefit from it.”

Sadly, Panos passed away soon afterwards. However, the message he left about the extract's "potential therapeutic" abilities, survives and supports my theory of how it works therapeutically.

My many thousands of positive clinical responses achieved with the extract strongly suggest that the ligands in the extract influence gene expression by "re-activating" dysfunctional cellular receptors,  enabling their re-connection to the brain.

For example, one elderly female patient was not only rapidly relieved of the pain of surgically caused reflex sympathetic dystrophy by applying a little wheatgrass extract over her painful, deeply darkened, apparently oxygen-starved forearm, where blood circulation recovered almost immediately. So did her weakened musculature, where full movement was regained.

Having observed numerous, often rapid recoveries, it seemed to me the extract was able to re-activate or block many cellular receptors, e.g. pain, for which the extract works remarkably well, and often rapidly.

Panos, aged 54 and in his professional prime, tragically succumbed to cancer on 18 April, 2005. Strangely, his discovery, that might have improved the quality of life and longevity for many, was quietly forgotten. Fortunately, I have been able to spread the word of his discovery, and the numerous ways I have observed wheatgrass extract helping the recovery of numerous medical conditions and injuries.

Wheatgrass extract appears to ease pain by blocking Substance P

The blood-brain barrier (BBB) prevents most drugs (other than very small molecules) from crossing into and influencing the brain. By comparison, ligands in wheatgrass extract appear to reactivate dysfunctional cellular receptors, restoring their ability to signal the brain.

(Ligands are molecules that influence cell-receptor DNA to release neurotransmitters that send messages such as pain, pressure, taste, vision, touch etc., to the brain. For instance, for pain, (Figure 5), both topical and internal, the extract can prevent much of it from reaching the brain. Responses vary according to the severity of tissue damage, the patient's age, general health status, and many other factors.)

Ligands in wheatgrass extract appear to re-connect dysfunctional cellular receptors to the brain

Figure 4, shows how wheatgrass extract likely prevents pain from reaching the brain - i.e. by blocking the transmission of Substance P. Even a pin prick can cause tissue damage.

 Fig. 5. How pain is felt.

Figure 5 shows how pain cell receptors signal pain from a pin prick to the brain via the neurotransmitter, Substance P. The "victim" instantly draws his/her hand away. However, if wheatgass extract is applied to the painful area, pain is eased by preventing Substance P reaching the brain.

(Note, "infertile" women have conceived by taking a small dose of wheatgrass extract daily - most likely because it 'normalises' the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA) - which is essential for conception to occur.)

Some examples of remarkable healing by wheatgrass extract

Achieving closure of leprosy ulcers has defied modern medicine for many years. For instance, all treatment attempts for this patient's 8 year old leprous ulcer, (Fig. 6.) failed completely,  (View more cases.) Yet, wheatgrass extract has healed the wound in five months.

Also, in Figure 7, a non-healing spider bite present for 9 years has finally healed after just seven, once-monthly applications of wheatgrass extract. This is another example of the brain reconnecting to dysfunctional cellular receptors restored by wheatgrass extract. The brain has responded comprehensively by healing the wound.

Fig. 4.  'Unhealable' leprosy wound present 15 years in 60 year old female heals after 4 once a monthly applications of wheatgrass extract.  (View 6 more cases)
Fig. 7. This severe spider bite failed to heal after 9 years' orthodox medical treatment, but healed completely in 7 months after wheatgrass extract treatment.  

Also, in this interesting case of psoriasis (Fig. 8.) we can see a different type of healing by wheatgrass extract.

The lesions, caused by psoriasis, have resisted a variety of skin applications, including 15 years of topical steroids, which have severely thinned and damaged the skin's complex structure and its protective properties. But, after 2 months' treatment (twice monthly) with wheatgrass extract, the lesions have significantly darkened and enlarged. But this is not because the patient's skin is worsening. In fact, the wheatgrass extract has "re-activated" cellular receptors around the affected areas by "notifying" the brain that blood supply to the area is insufficient and preventing healing. The brain has then responded by restoring normal blood supply to the affected areas. (The dark spots may be significantly larger, but in time they will begin to shrink as the skin regains its normal status.)

In due course, if the patient perseveres with the treatment, the brown lesions will gradually fade or disappear completely. After all, it has taken several years for the skin to degenerate, so it will take some time to recover completely. This is a positive outcome because the skin is now recovering. Given time and continued application of wheatgrass extract, healing will almost certainly occur.

However, after two months wheatgrass extract application, the lesions on the right are now deeply coloured and enlarged, suggesting restoration of blood supply to the area. Clearly, wheatgrass extract is making substantial positive changes.   

In my experience, for healing topical steroid skin disorders, (and many other conditions) treatment should be directed towards re-activating dysfunctional cellular receptors that have been destroyed or damaged, to the brain. It may take several months, but given time, the skin will recover completely.

Remember, "Less is best"

The principle of using wheatgrass extract sparingly applies to the treatment of most, if not all, medical conditions and injuries - internally and externally. For example, in Figure 7, a supposedly "incurable" spider bite wound that defied all treatment for nine years, has healed after application of wheatgrass extract.

Also, the 17-year-old girl in Figure 9 had suffered from psoriasis for three years, but topical steroids failed her. Wheatgrass extract however, applied once weekly, repaired her skin completely in four months. Compared with the patient in Figure 8, the remarkable response of this teenage girl's skin to wheatgrass extract, suggests that age is an important factor in the healing process.

Most drug treatments for psoriasis (and eczema) such as topical steroids, should be avoided. Although they may reduce inflammation, they do nothing to restore the skin's damaged structure and multiple functions. In fact, they do more damage and expose the skin to infection.

Wheatgrass extract removes psoriatic plaques, restoring skin almost to normal in 2 weeks

Just two weeks after wheatgrass extract was applied to the affected area, (Fig. 13.) there has been remarkable recovery of the patient's skin after two applications. The large areas of thick plaque have almost disappeared, revealing normal skin underneath. This suggests there has been a rapid "re-connection" (re-coupling) between the psoriatically damaged skin area and the brain which has then responded to help restore the patient's skin to normal. Also, in this case, the patient is young, which could also help expedite the healing process.

This case also suggests that psoriasis might develop due to dysfunction of cell receptors near the skin surface. This concept may also be the cause of other conditions such as skin disorders, hemorrhage, pain, itch etc. that often respond well to wheatgrass extract
