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.
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.
