Contrary to most “medicinal” treatments, success with wheatgrass depends on using less rather than more.
That is true! Over-treating with wheatgrass can sometimes actually slow the healing process of a number of conditions. So, only apply (or take) a small amount, and NOT EVERY DAY. It may sound strange, but I have learned much over the past 25 years having treated thousands of patients successfully with this remarkable, readily available, herb.
So, try to be frugal. Don’t waste the extract and you will understand what I mean. 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 to the wound. I then reduce even further, often down to only ONCE MONTHLY, depending on the patient’s progress.
In other words, as a general rule, whether taking the extract or applying it to the skin – don’t overtreat!
The reason for this approach is based on many years of clinical experience, over which time I have learned how to achieve most effective healing results.
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, for “whole body” effect.
