Burns contractures – movement returns rapidly after wheatgrass applied

An extraordinary physical response to wheatgrass extract

This young man suffered severe burns to the front of his chest in an industrial accident three months earlier. Subsequently, he developed severe scarring and contracture of muscles and tendons of the upper arms and chest wall, which prevented him from elevating his outstretched arms above the horizontal.

With permission from the Senior Burns Surgeon running an outpatients clinic at an Indian hospital Burns Unit, I applied a small amount of wheatgrass extract over the patient’s severely injured muscles and tendons connecting the shoulder to the front of his chest (pectoral muscles). About ten minutes later, the patient was asked to try to elevate his arms above the horizontal. He was reluctant to do so because he was sure he couldn’t. However, when he tried, he was able to lift his arms vertically as shown in the photographs.

This extaordinary response was observed, much to their amazement, by eight doctors and medical students visiting from the UK. Needless to say, we were all amazed, as was the patient. Strangely enough, no one took much notice, as if it happened every day!

How did movement recover?

Wheatgrass extract appeared to “loosen” the tight, contracted tendons and muscles that restricted the patient’s movement by “re-connecting” damaged sensory and motor nerves.

I had already observed wheatgrass rapidly relaxing tense or tight muscular tissue – particularly cramps, muscle strains, pulled muscles etc., and several severe, “incurable” burn scars.
