Skin: Infected diabetic wound healed

A difficult, complicated wound-healing challenge

This 55 y.o. non-insulin dependent diabetic female suffered a severe injury to her knee. After closure with 26 sutures (stitches), the wound soon became infected and re-opened as shown in the top photo. After two weeks' standard treatment, most of the sutures had ruptured causing severe pain.

After cleansing, the wound and applying wheatgrass extract on alternate days only, the extract rapidly cleansed the wound and eliminated infection. Figures 1 to 4 show how effective the extract is for healing wounds, even when severely infected.

2 weeks' wound infection - note pus.  Wheatgrass extract applied.

At 5 weeks, wound is clean & healing well.

At 2 months, wound is completely healed.
At 2 months, wound is completely healed.

The patient is now pain-free and fully mobile. Considering no antibiotics were used, wheatgrass extract clearly assisted healing of this patient's wound.

Please note, longer experience with the extract has made it very clear that "less is best". For instance, this patient would most likely have responded even quicker had she applied the wheatgrass extract every 2 weeks.
