What is acne?
Acne is due to a disturbance of sebaceous (oil) glands in the skin which are under hormonal control. Wheatgrass can influence or modulate this mechanism for the patient’s benefit. It may take several months of regular (twice weekly) application, but perseverance usually works.
This young woman suffered from chronic acne for 10 years. Note marked skin disfigurement on her chin. (Fig. 1.) Various skin applications, antibiotics and anti-acne drugs did little to improve her condition. By contrast, after only six weeks’ treatment with wheatgrass extract, her skin has almost returned to normal. (Fig. 3.)
Note: For best results, it is important not to overtreat with wheatgrass. It may take several months to overcome the acne pimples, but you can expect good results if you persevere.
