Testimonial provided by the patient's spouse

My husband had radiotherapy following secondary melanoma.

His radiotherapy burns were severe and the area under his armpit was like raw steak and he was in a lot of pain. I felt the traditional treatment of Sorbolene was locking in the heat and adding to his discomfort and delaying his healing.

As a registered Nurse, I discussed this with my sister also an R.N but well versed in alternative medicine and she suggested I get Wheatgrass extract.  I was sceptical but desperate.  Well no longer - he got immediate relief, the healing process was rapid and he was able to sleep.  It is the greatest support to the healing process and pain relief.  I am now a total supporter. Dr. Chris you are a genius. Thank you.

Kind regards,

Comment:

This case illustrates a typical healing response to radiation burns ("skin toxicity") by applying wheatgrass extract - preferably before and after treatment. Rapid pain relief, effective pain prevention, inflammation reduction and rapid wound healing is the usual result. Ironically, radiotherapists have been searching for such a remedy for over 100 years, but don't appear to be interested in wheatgrass.

Yet wheatgrass extract was shown to be effective in reducing radiation pain in an Australian clinical study, (and as a highly effective pain killer in the United States in the 1930's!). Given the amount of pain so many of these patients have to endure, one wonders why.
