I was present when this footballer suffered a kick in the head during a game and immediately applied wheatgrass exttract over the large swelling. (Hematoma). This picture was taken 2 hours later. No ice was applied. Note there is no sign of purple discoloration or bruising like one would expect after such a solid blow.
Next morning, remarkably, swelling is absent and only the kick mark remains.
Wheatgrass, if applied soon after an injury quickly stops bleeding under the skin and reduces swelling.
It is also very useful treatment for accidents, burns, before and after surgical procedures, falls in the elderly, and much more.
