Diabetes. Rapid healing of Infected wound

This 55 y.o. non-insulin dependent diabetic female suffered a severe injury to her knee. The wound required 26 sutures (stitches), but quickly became infected and re-opened because the stitches didn’t hold. Two weeks later, most of the sutures had ruptured and the patient was in severe pain. (Fig. 1.).

When it was cleansed, wheatgrass extract was applied to the wound on alternate days only. No other treatments, such as antibiotics, were used or required.  

14 March 2018. Infected knee injury in middle aged female. Note wound infection - pus oozing from wound. At this stage the wound was two weeks old. Originally heavily sutured, the wound has re-opened.

2 weeks later. Wheatgrass extract has been applied three times weekly. Wound has dried, and surface is beginning to heal. No sign of infection - pus and bleeding has been eliminated.
Fig. 2. Two weeks later. Wound has dried, and surface is beginning to heal. No sign of infection – pus and bleeding has been eliminated.
5 weeks after commencement of wheatgrass extract. Wound is quite clean & healing well.

At 2 months from beginning of wheatgrass treatment, the wound has completely healed and the patient is pain-free and fully mobile.

This example demonstrates how effective wheatgrass extract can be for healing infected wounds aggravated by diabetes, a condition that often inhibits the healing process and predisposes the patient to infection.  The fact that no antibiotics were required by this patient speaks much for the healing ability of wheatgrass.
