The Cases and Conditions listed below demonstrate the broad spectrum of wheatgrass extract's healing capabilities.

To achieve maximum benefit:

  • The most important rule for healing with wheatgrass is “less is best.” A little wheatgrass goes a long way. There is no need to apply it several times a day. In fact, doing that is not only wasteful, it can sometimes slow the healing process. In many cases, once or twice weekly is sufficient. In some cases, e.g. diabetic ulcers, apply a little once every three or four weeks.
  • Persevere, but don't over treat. Sometimes, healing can occur rapidly - within a day or two e.g. minor burns. You can read more about recommended dosages here.
  • In general, for injuries and skin conditions, apply the extract only once or twice a week. i.e. about every four days. e.g. Mondays & Thursdays.
  • For long-standing (chronic) conditions, e.g. leg & diabetic foot ulcers, apply the extract once a week, or even less if the wound is constantly wet.

These instructions may seem unusual, but when healing with wheatgrass it is important not to view it as a drug. There is a substantial difference between a natural remedy and a drug. Drug effectiveness usually depends on maintaining high levels of it in the blood stream whereas the opposite applies to wheatgrass. Increasing the dose will not accelerate the healing process.

My article, "Why wheatgrass heals but chlorophyll doesn't" is an attempt to explain how wheatgrass accelerates healing and helps relieve pain.
