Wheatgrass heals foot and leg ulcers, often when nothing else works!

Medical research and clinical observation suggest that wheatgrass contains bio-active molecules that repair the nerves and supply the skin with oxygen and nutrients.

Dr. Chris Reynolds - a.k.a Dr Wheatgrass
Dr Chris Reynolds "I have treated 50,000+ patients effectively with wheatgrass since 1995. Clinical observations and scientific research demonstrate its ability to prevent infection and to heal such as eczema, ulcers, anal fissures, molluscum, alopicia, psoriasis, burns, and many more. Wheatgrass is safe to apply to the skin and use orally, even for young children and infants and animals."
(Graduate, Faculty of Medicine, Univ. of Western Austrailia, 1973)

Back in the 1930's, cereal grass extracts, including wheatgrass, were found to hasten the healing of skin ulcers. By chance, in 1995, I was fortunate enough to "re-discover" how effective wheatgrass can be as a wound-healing agent, and I have used it effectively for this problem ever since.

What are foot and leg ulcers?

Foot ulcers are skin injuries or wounds to the foot that take a long time to heal. They can be caused by poor blood flow (arterial), compromised veins (venous), continuous pressure or rubbing (decubitus) or decreased circulation (neuropathic) due to diabetes or similar conditions.

The treatment of these ulcers varies from one doctor, hospital and nurse to another. Even the massive global ulcer-healing industry is yet to find a simple, effective and economical way to heal them. The cost of treatment to patients for dressings, domiciliary and hospital care can be substantial.

 

Cause of Foot and Leg Ulcers

Ulcers are caused by severe or long term swelling from poor blood flow in the veins. This causes weakening in the tissue of your leg. The skin then breaks causing an ulcer to form. Diabetic ulcers occur mainly due to reduced oxygen reaching the skin (ischemia) causing breakdown of overlying tissue. Also, the nerves controlling the blood supply may be damaged (peripheral neuropathy) which further reduces blood supply. The affected skin then becomes vulnerable to even minor trauma which breaks the skin surface. This is the beginning of an ulcer, and often considerable associated pain and mental stress ensues.

 

The Power of Wheatgrass Healing

Wheatgrass, because of its remarkable healing and anti-inflammatory properties can significantly assist diabetic ulcer and foot/leg ulcer sufferers by easing pain and assisting the healing process. *

* The results may vary based on a variety of factors.

It is similar to the split lip shown in figure 2. For more than a year, this featured young male patient suffered and endured numerous treatments that incorporated antibiotics and steroids but failed. After applying wheatgrass, his wound did heal after one week (Fig. 3)

* The results may vary based on a variety of factors.

 

Another example of how effectively wheatgrass can heal is shown in the pictures below. This is a skin graft that has been treated by orthodox medical methods for six weeks. It is healing very slowly and looks unhealthy because of poor blood supply. (Fig. 1.) Wheatgrass Skin Recovery Spray was commenced at this stage, and in Figure 2, after only 2 days, the graft is already recovering well. In Fig. 3. the graft has completely healed in just 3 weeks.

How do I treat foot ulcers with wheatgrass?

The best product for this is Dr Wheatgrass Skin Recovery Spray, You can also combine with Dr Wheatgrass Supershots to boost healing process.

Spray a small amount on to the ulcer floor on alternate days. Wheatgrass extract is quite potent and bioactive, so it is important not to overtreat any kind of ulcer. Apply a non-stick gauze pad after spraying and tape around it. wheatgrass creates a fine film around the ulcer and seals the wound, contains the exudate and eliminates ooze and old blood. wheatgrass is used as a potent antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agent. Take wheatgrass extract orally (Supershots) to boost healing.

In about a week, the ulcer will show signs of debridement, i.e. removal of dead tissue and re-vitalization of the ulcer floor due to a return in blood circulation. This is crucial for the ulcer to heal or to prevent potential amputation. Perseverance is essential.

May - From Amazon

I feel this product is awesome and it needs to put out to show others through advertising. It is working and I have foot ulcers I have been spraying it on. After just a few weeks I can tell the difference in the softness of my skin and I see skin growing. I have told my doctor about this spray and he is checking it out. When I find a product that works, I stick with it. I also feel this would be the only spray you would use for your body, face and of course a few ulcers.

Wheatgrass Treatment for Ulcers

Ulcers can respond very well, and often quickly, to wheatgrass therapy as shown by the cases below. Medical research and clinical observation suggest that wheatgrass contains bioactive molecules that stimulate production of growth factors. These factors help to repair the tiny nerves that control the calibre of the microscopical blood vessels supplying the skin with oxygen and nutrients. Prevention is better than cure, so wheatgrass should be applied to the feet daily to maintain the blood circulation and prevent such ulcers forming.

The ulcers shown below have only been treated every second day with wheatgrass spray and simple gauze dressings. Unless otherwise stated, other than regular diabetic medication, no debridement, antibiotics, sophisticated dressings or other treatments have been used during the wheatgrass treatment period shown in the photographs.

Wound management using wheatgrass extract

  • Wheatgrass promotes rapid re-vascularisation and re-epithelialisation of wound surface.
  • Exudate is preserved while wound surface remains dry.
  • ‘Non-stick’ surface facilitates pain-free removal of dressing.
  • Ulcer heals faster due to retained exudate.

Testimonial from the ulcer patient of case study 2

I am a 52-year old Type 2 diabetic, with peripheral neuropathy and a rare bullosis diabeticorum complication. Related to this condition, I developed a lower leg ulcer, underwent wound debridement surgery on June 15th which left an open wound approximately 5 cm x 8 cm, and spent 10 days in hospital on IV antibiotics.

From June 16th to August 16th the wound was treated with a negative pressure dressing / attached medical device (Renasys Go). In the 2 months of treatment with the negative pressure dressing / attached medical device the wound decreased in size to about 3 cm x 5 cm. In an effort to accelerate wound recovery, doctors recommended a followup skin graft operation. The skin graft operation was performed on August 16th and I spent 6 more days in hospital. About 90% of the skin graft ‘took’ but there remained some open areas and the graft / wound was slow to fully recover. (Fig. 1.)

I commenced use of Dr Wheatgrass Skin Recovery Spray on September 11th, 26 days after the skin graft operation, applying the spray a couple of times a days and using a simple combine dressing for wound protection. Within a couple of days of commencing use of the Dr Wheatgrass spray, the wound had revascularised and the open areas were beginning to close. (Fig. 2). The open areas of the graft / wound closed by September 18th, just 7 days after commencing use of the Dr Wheatgrass spray, and the health of the graft / wound continued to make outstanding progress. (Fig. 3.)

As a result, I was able to return to work on September 19th after over 3 months away due to this medical condition. I have found the use of Dr Wheatgrass Skin Recovery Spray to be complementary to the conventional wound debridement surgery, negative pressure dressing / medical device, and skin graft surgery. I am very happy with what I think were the accelerated graft / wound healing benefits resulting from my use of the Dr Wheatgrass Skin Recovery Spray. I will continue to use the Dr Wheatgrass Skin Recovery Spray daily, both to help thicken / toughen up this graft / wound area and on my shins, ankles, and feet to help prevent leg ulcers. Thank you Dr Wheatgrass for a great product.

Case Study 4

The skin on this 82 year old man's lower legs had been breaking down for about 6 months. As the skin thins with ageing, often a minor injury causes exudate (tissue fluid) to find its way through to the surface of the skin. This opens a small wound that can then develop into a venous ulcer. Skin scales and scabs form over the broken areas. If this process isn't halted, ulcers can coalesce and deepen. This patient was well aware of the potential for further deterioration. He applied the wheatgrass spray twice weekly and kept the area covered with a dry dressing.

The photographs below show that in just 9 days there has been significant improvement. The scale and overlying scabs have almost disappeared and the ulcerated areas have healed. The skin is smoother and regaining its natural strength and texture.

Wheatgrass As A Wound-Healing Facilitator

Since the 1930’s, wheatgrass (and other cereal grasses) have been known to contain “growth factors” (2) (the term used in those days to describe substances that caused macroscopic growth in laboratory animals) capable of promoting rapid re-epithelialisation of acute wounds and burns. (3, 6-10) Wheatgrass was also used as a potent antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agent.

However, by far the most important attribute of wheatgrass is its ability to generate a layer of new epithelial cells to cover the wound (or burn) surface within 24-36 hours.

This process seals the wound, contains the exudate and eliminates ooze and old blood.

Dr. Chris discusses how to facilitate healing of foot ulcers with wheatgrass

Foot ulcers are increasingly common throughout the world, and because standard treatments are limited in what they can do, many of these patients require amputation in due course. Here Dr. Chris Reynolds explains how effective wheatgrass extract can be for debriding (cleaning) these ulcers and accelerating and aiding their healing.
