An extraordinary physical response to wheatgrass extract
The remarkable restoration of movement of this patient's supposedly "fixed" shoulder movement caused by severe burn contractures, was witnessed by nine doctors (including myself), and four medical students, during an outpatient clinic at a teaching hospital in Indore, India.
Three months earlier, the patient suffered severe burns to the front of his chest and neck, caused by a furnace blast. He also suffered severe scarring and contractures of the muscles and tendons connecting his shoulder muscles to the chest, which prevented him from elevating his shoulders above the horizontal. (Fig. 1.) He had been unable to work for three months.
As I had seen wheatgrass extract increase limb movement in some patients with burn contractures in Australia, I suggested it might help this patient. With permission, I sprayed some extract over his worst affected areas.
About 10 minutes later, he was able to extend his arms to the vertical as shown in the photographs.
I thought it was a bit strange that no-one, except the students, and the consultant (who had already seen wheatgrass save a child's life after a severe burn), were surprised at what was clearly a remarkable movement achievement.
How did wheatgrass extract restore the patient's movement?
The wheatgrass extract applied over the patient's severely scarred areas clearly "relaxed" the injured, tight, contracted tendons and muscles that were restricting the patient's movements, and allowed him to move his arms again at the shoulder.
But how did this happen?
Well, many years' clinical observations of wheatgrass healing suggest the extract is capable of re-connecting ("re-coupling") dysfunctional sensory cellular receptors to the central nervous system. Ligands known to exist in wheatgrass extract, (20 or more), are known to influence gene expression of these cells thereby accelerating the "re-coupling" process.
(You can view a similar recovery of the peripheral nerves of this stroke patient who regained limb movement a few minutes after wheatgrass extract was applied to his paralysed hand and limbs.)
In the following cases, tthe wheatgrass extract similarly accelerates healing of second-degree burns, probably via "neuronal recoupling":
- Wheatgrass heals deep second-degree burn in a week
- Two cases of second degree burns healing rapidly with wheatgrass extract
- Radiotherapy burns. Rapid relief of pain and wound healing with wheatgrass extract
- Burns. Wheatgrass saves a life
