Thanks so much Dr. Chris for the teething advice using the wheatgrass! After fighting to go to sleep for 45 minutes, I rubbed the wheatgrass on Danny’s (18 months old) cheekbones and on the back of his neck (just to make sure!) and he went to sleep in less than 5 minutes!

Dr. Chris Reynolds’ comment:
This testimonial may seem hard to believe, but I have used wheatgrass extract for rapid reduction of fever in both children and adults for more than 20 years simply by rubbing a little on the back of the patient’s neck. It appears that the bioactives in wheatgrass penetrate the skin rapidly and send “messages” to the hypothalamus, the area of the brain that controls body temperature. It usually takes about ten minutes, and there is no risk of side effects. However, there are many causes of fever, so if it persists after applying wheatgrass and/or using some other temperature-lowering medication, you should seek medical advice.
