Acne. Two cases

Treating acne with wheatgrass

Acne is a skin condition caused by the hormonal disturbance of sebaceous (oil) glands in the skin. These glands are controlled by hormones which can be disturbed during the 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 due to inflammation. If left untreated, scarring may occur which may be permanent if the conditon is severe.

Wheatgrass extract applied regularly to the affected skin can help eliminate this condition and prevent scarring if used early enough and long enough. However, acne can be very resistant to treatment so the patient must be prepared to be patient and persevere. It may take up to 12 months or more for the skin to recover, but it often does if one perseveres.

Important: For best results, do not to over-treat with wheatgrass. Twice weekly application - say Monday and Thursday - is advised. It may take several months to eliminate the acne pimples, but expect positive results if you persevere.
