Having succeeded since 1995 in using wheatgrass therapeutically for many thousands of patients, I have also learned much from those who have benefited from it via my “Ask Dr Chris” “Global Clinic”, as well as from numerous  testimonials people have sent me from around the world.

Although my theory of how wheatgrass works remains to be proven scientifically and will no doubt meet objection and possibly ridicule from various quarters, therapeutic responses observed in thousands of patients suggest that wheatgrass possibly works by “letting the brain know” about external and internal abnormalities. For instance, by sending feedback of damaged or poorly functioning body tissues and systems e.g. cardiovascular system, the brain then takes steps to resolve the problem.

Numerous clinical observations suggest however that overtreatment can actually slow the healing process. This is why I advise that “less is best” when applying or ingesting it.  For instance, in the treatment of venous (leg) ulcers, TWICE WEEKLY application of wheatgrass is adequate.

So, don’t overtreat! Less is best.

Using wheatgrass too frequently, whether applied to the skin or taken orally, can in fact slow the healing process.

Wheatgrass is also a catalyst, so only a small amount is needed at any given time. So don’t overuse it.

For injuries, skin conditions etc. apply just a little wheatgrass extract over the affected area once every second day. 

For a boost to your immune system and general good health, take a small dose of wheatgrass extract – half a teaspoonful for children, one teaspoonful for adults – that’s right – on alternate days – and persevere.
