Superbalm contains a higher percentage of wheatgrass extract than Skin Recovery Cream, so I usually recommend Superbalm for fissure. However, we are receiving increasing numbers of positive reports from people using the wheatgrass Skin Recovery Spray. This only needs to be sprayed over the anus once on alternate daysnot inserted. The same applies to the other wheatgrass topicals – Superbalm and Cream. Bioactives in wheatgrass are rapidly absorbed through the skin, and fissures are almost invariably superficial i.e. close to the anal opening. Therefore, applying any of our topical products on the anus should be effective.

Please note: The reason so many testimonials relate to Skin Recovery Cream is because this product was available several years before Superbalm.

Thalassaemia is an inherited blood condition that results in the production of abnormal hemoglobin, the molecules in the red blood cells that carry oxygen around the body. Many of these patients require lifelong, usually monthly, blood transfusions and various drugs to help remove excess iron from the body. There are millions of sufferers worldwide.

Wheatgrass has been shown to increase the “transfusion gap” in some of these patients i.e. the length of time required between blood transfusions.

Please go to Dr. Chris Reynolds’ website for more information on this subject. 

The history of wheatgrass healing goes back thousands of years. However, more recently, in the 1930’s in the United States there was substantial scientific research into the nutritional and other properties of cereal grasses. Numerous uses were found using wheatgrass and other cereal grasses for various medical and surgical treatment.

In the 1970’s, Ann Wigmore started the wheatgrass juicing craze in the United States which ultimately led to a huge, nutritional industry which continues to grow worldwide.

We are only a small company, but we have contributed to medical research in a number of ways.

Thalassemia

Thalassemic patients suffer from an inherited blood disorder that adversely affects the structure of hemoglobin, the molecule responsible for carrying oxygen around the body. There are a number of different types of this disorder and many patients require regular blood transfusions, often every three or four weeks, throughout their lives.

In 2005, scientists at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute in Melbourne, Australia discovered that our wheatgrass extract can significantly enhance the production of foetal haemoglobin in human clone cells. This could lead to  reduction of blood transfusion requirements in thalassaemic patients constituting a significant medical breakthrough.

Dr Wheatgrass is proud to have played an important role in this research.

Leprosy Ulcers

Even though they have been treated and “cured” of leprosy by medication, leprosy patients frequently develop skin ulcers, usually on the feet, which can become indolent and don’t heal. Some ulcers persist for more than 30 years.  To date, no effective medical treatment has been found to heal these ulcers.

By chance, in 2008, we discovered that our Skin Recovery Spray almost healed two ulcers in one of these patients. Subsequently, we funded and and supervised a clinical pilot study using the wheatgrass spray in Indore, India. Preliminary results showed more than 60% of leprous ulcers healed in these patients with significant healing in approximately 80 percent – a remarkable result.

Skin Toxicity From Radiation in Breast Cancer Patients

Deep X-ray therapy for the treatment of breast cancer can be fraught with complications and adverse reactions called “skin toxicity”. Essentially, this means that after treatment, the skin becomes inflamed, tends to blister and break down leading to pain, difficulty in management and wound infection. Because of skin toxicity, the patient has to wait much longer between treatments for the skin to recover sufficiently to allow the next treatment. This in turn tends to reduce the patient’s chances of recovery.

For over 100 years the inability to successfully manage skin toxicity has been a major management issue, and to date, nothing has been found that can significantly reduce it. Many topical substances have been trialled and tested over the years, but to no avail.

In this controlled, double-blind study performed at the School of Clinical Sciences, Charles Sturt University in New South Wales, 29 breast cancer patients applied either sorbolene (current best practice) or a commercially produced wheatgrass-based cream (Dr Wheatgrass Skin Recovery Cream ) to the irradiated area three times a day from commencement of radiotherapy.

The researchers determined that “the wheatgrass extract delays the severity of acute radiation skin toxicity” and, on the basis of their results, recommended “a larger multicentre randomised trial. “Read more about wheatgrass and breast cancer treatment and radiation”

Second Degree Burns

Our wheatgrass extract demonstrated rapid healing and pain relief in second degree burns compared with standard, industry-wide recommended treatment with silver sulfadiazine which does little if anything for pain or to prevent infection. This recently published study was supported financially by Dr Wheatgrass. We also provided the wheatgrass extract used in the study.

Footnote: Dr. Chris Reynolds comments: “Long term experience using wheatgrass extract for second-degree burns as suffered after breast cancer irradiation and other burns, has shown that “less is best”. The extract should only be applied once daily at the most, and preferably on alternate days only.

Ideally, one should combine taking wheatgrass while applying wheatgrass extract to topical steroid damaged skin. Because of the additional cost, I usually recommend using just the spray first because often it can work well by itself. Then, if the eczema remains refractory to the spray, then I suggest adding the Supershots. It may take several months to see improvement, and perseverance (and considerable willpower) often helps sufferers through this ordeal, which it is in most cases.

What wheatgrass appears to do is assist the recovery of the skin’s structure and functions (of which there are many), including restoring the skin’s immune status. This can help in reducing inflammatory flares when steroid applications are gradually reduced. Adding oral wheatgrass (e.g. Supershots) tends to augment the recovery process by strengthening one’s immune system.

The best product for assisting recovery of this problem is the wheatgrass Skin Recovery Spray.

Spray on a very small amount on to the ulcer floor, but only once weekly for best results. Keep the wound covered with a light dressing. Wheatgrass extract contains potent, but safe, bioactives, so it is important not to overtreat any kind of ulcer or skin wound. Apply a light dressing after spraying.

In a week or two, the ulcer should show signs of debridement, i.e. removal of dead tissue and re-vitalisation of the ulcer floor due to the return of blood circulation. This is crucial for the ulcer to heal or to prevent potential amputation. Do your best to persevere because wheatgrass can heal these ulcers even when they have been present for a number of years.

Theoretically, the Vitamin K in fresh wheatgrass juice could interact with warfarin. I have never known or heard of anyone, including my own patients, who ever had a change in their coagulation profile (blood tests) by taking wheatgrass regularly.

In fact, when these patients bruise, applying any of the Dr Wheatgrass topicals to the overlying skin can help reduce swelling, bleeding and skin discoloration.

It has been known since the 1930’s that wheatgrass and other cereal grasses contain a potent fertility factor, at least in laboratory animals. (More information) There is also laboratory evidence that wheatgrass stimulates the production of fertility hormones in females as well as males i.e. prolactin and gonadotrophin.

Some women attest to reduction of FSH levels after taking Supershots. Also, there have been some reports from males who have experienced quite rapid increases in their sperm counts.

I can vouch for the fact that I have seen a significant number of “infertile” women conceive after taking wheatgrass regularly. One patient in particular, after 9 years of trying to conceive, did so about one month after taking wheatgrass daily.

Certainly. The wheatgrass extract we use in all our products is derived from a staple food – wheat. It contains nothing that could cause concern during drug testing, whether ingested or applied to the skin. Nor will any banned substances be found in the urine.
