Case Studies - Wheatgrass Therapy

 

Crohn's Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, IBD

 

Daily consumption of wheatgrass has improved the condition of a number of my UC patients to which this story testifies.

 
What are crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis?

Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis are life long gastrointestinal disorders and the result of an abnormal response by body's immune system. Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis are collectively called IBD(Inflammatory bowel disease). In people with IBD, the immune system mistakes food, bacteria, and other materials in the intestine for foreign or invading substances. When this happens, the body sends white blood cells into the lining of the intestines, where they produce chronic inflammation and ulcerations. Ulcerative colitis affects the large intestine (colon) whereas Crohn’s disease can occur in any part of the intestines.

 
Wheatgrass For Ulcerative Colitis

Ulcerative colitis (UC) is a relatively common condition that causes ulcers and inflammation on the wall of the large bowel and rectum. Classic symptoms include abdominal pain, bleeding, diarrhea, fatigue, weight loss and anemia. The condition mainly affects males and females in the 15 to 30 age group. There may be an underlying hereditary predisposition.

 

There are a number of theories regarding the cause of UC. One suggests that the body's immune system reacts abnormally to the bacteria that normally live in the large bowel. In other words there is most likely an autoimmune component involved. I would agree because wheatgrass, which can help these patients, is a potent immune modulator – something no pharmaceutical company has so far been able to produce.

 

Daily consumption of wheatgrass has improved the condition of a number of my UC patients to which this story testifies. And he only took one 5ml Supershot a day. Treatment usually consists of anti-inflammatory drugs and/or steroids which can usually help the patient maintain a reasonable quality of life. However, there can be serious adverse effects such as nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.

 

Scientific support for wheatgrass for UC came in a clinical trial of 23 ulcerative colitis patients in Israel where it was found to have very positive and no adverse effects. (View research abstract) The simple message is that if you have any kind of auto-immune disorder, it will not harm you to try wheatgrass. In fact, it could do you a lot of good.

 
Wheatgrass For Crohn's Disease

A naturopath from Western Australia called to let us know that she had been treating seven patients with Crohn's disease, a long-term, chronic disorder of the intestine whose underlying cause is unknown, with wheatgrass. There have been suggestions that it is autoimmune in origin. She was treating a common complication of the disease - perianal fissures and fistulas - and they had all healed. That's quite a feat considering there are no pharmaceutical products that measure up to the task.

 

From Patients-

 

I am writing to thank you for your amazing wheatgrass products. Since my initial contact last year seeking advice my health has gone from strength to strength. As you may remember, I was suffering from a plethora of conditions all associated with inflammatory bowel disease: a chronic painful anal fissure; two recto-vaginal fistulae and iron deficiency anaemia. These problems were extremely painful, exhausting and difficult to deal with on an ongoing basis and had resisted cure from all the usual medical alternatives including operations and pharmaceuticals. I am happy today to report that, through using your wheatgrass shots and dermatological cream over the past 12 months, that there has been a dramatic improvement in my quality of life. The fistulae are quiescent, the fissure is almost gone and the iron deficiency anaemia is completely cured. As I continue to use your products I look enthusiastically forward to cures on all fronts, and unreservedly recommend them to anyone, who like me, is battling a resistant condition.

I've been using the Supershots as well as the Superbalm and seeing some results. The IBS has improved. I now have less grumbling and gas going on in the stomach. I also have had much improvement with the hemorrhoids. I will continue to take the Supershots as well as using the Superbalm. Cant wait for total recovery... Thanks.

Yes Wheatgrass shots work! From about 17, I started having severe cramps in my stomach on average about once a week. It lasted a few years getting worse and worse until I went to the doctor hoping it wasn't anything serious. The doc advised me that I had Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and while it was not serious the only option was to take some pills to take away the pain, however I had to wait for an attack before I could take the medication.

 

After hearing my complaints for a few months my father was fed up and gave me a bottle of the Wheatgrass shots. Torn between needing some relief and not wanting to prove my dad was right, I gave in and started taking a shot a day. After a few months I started to notice something, from the first week of taking the shots I had not had an attack. The pills sitting on my dresser weren't touched and are now in the bin. It is going on 2 years now and I still continue to take the shots. However I haven't told my dad yet.
