Treating Acne with Wheatgrass Extract
Acne is a skin condition caused by hormonal disturbance of sebaceous (oil) glands in the skin. These glands are controlled by hormones which can be disturbed by marked changes in hormonal levels during puberty. Consequently, some skin pores are blocked by sebum (oil from the skin), and pimples (pustules) begin to appear, and the face can redden from inflammation. If left untreated, scarring can occur and may be permanent if the condition is severe and not treated adequately.
Wheatgrass extract applied thinly to the affected skin once a week can improve this condition (as shown here) and help prevent scarring if used for the long term. Acne, though, can be resistant to treatment, so both patience and perseverance are essential. It may take up to 12 months or more for recovery, but you will have "new skin" to look forward to.
Case 1 - 20-year-old with severe acne
This 20-yr-old female suffered severe acne for six years. She was unresponsive to multiple treatments prior to commencing wheatgrass.
After 6 months, there is significant improvement including reduction in pustules and inflammation with partial filling of pitting.
After 12 months wheatgrass there has been significant smoothing of the skin. Pustules have disappeared and many pock marks have filled.
Case 2 - 10 year battle against acne
This young woman suffered from acne for 10 years. In the picture on the left, note marked skin disfigurement and inflammation/redness. Numerous skin applications, antibiotics and anti-acne drugs failed to improve her condition. However, after only six weeks of treatment with wheatgrass extract, her skin has almost returned to normal.
Case 3 - 13-year-old with severe acne
As described by the child's mother, he had severe acne and scars covering his face, some filled with pus.
At the time, daily treatment consisted of benzoyl peroxide, a drug with potential side effects such as eyelid edema (swelling), anaphylactic reaction (potentially serious). tight throat feeling (potentially serious), dyspnea (difficulty breathing), dry skin, irritant contact dermatitis, skin irritation, burning skin sensation.
This drug was replaced with wheatgrass extract spray applied only once weekly.
The photographs below show obvious improvement in the child's skin. After four months, there was no sign of pustules (pus) and only very mild inflammation (redness).
After 9 months treatment, the picture on the right shows no evidence of inflammation and pock marks (scarring) have almost disappeared.
