This 55 y.o. non-insulin dependent diabetic female suffered a severe injury to her knee. The wound required 26 sutures (stitches), but it soon became infected and re-opened because the stitches couldn’t hold the wound edges together. Two weeks later, most of the sutures had ruptured and the patient was in severe pain. (Fig. 1.).
After the wound was cleansed, only wheatgrass extract was applied on alternate days only and antibiotics were not requuired.
This case demonstrates how effective wheatgrass extract can be for healing infected wounds aggravated by diabetes – a condition that often slows the healing process and predisposes the patient to infection. Also, no antibiotics were required to heal this patient’s wound which suggests that other (natural) healing forces appear to be at work thanks to wheatgrass.
