Contrary to most “medicinal” treatments, success with wheatgrass depends on using less rather than more.
Why? Because over-treating with wheatgrass can sometimes even slow the healing process of some conditions. Therefore, only apply (or take) a small amount, but NOT EVERY DAY. This may sound strange, but I have learned much over the past 25 years after treating thousands of patients successfully with this remarkable herb.
Therefore, don’t waste the extract. For instance, when treating diabetic leg/foot ulcers, I usually begin with a ONCE WEEKLY application until the wound has been debrided i.e. when all dead tissue in and around the ulcer has been removed and blood circulation has returned. I then reduce even further – to ONCE MONTHLY, depending on the patient’s progress.
As a general rule, whether taking the extract or applying it to the skin – don’t overtreat!
The reason is based on many years of clinical experience, over which time I have learned how to achieve effective healing outcomes.
Also, if you persevere with oral wheatgrass, it can improve your health status. One teaspoonful of wheatgrass extract (e.g. Dr Wheatgrass Supershots) – every two or three days – is sufficient. Remember to hold the liquid in your mouth for a minute before swallowing. This allows absorption of bioactives through the wall of the mouth directly into the bloodstream, creating a “whole body” effect.
