Wheatgrass helps steroid-damaged skin to repair organically!

Using wheatgrass helps manage severe eczema by preventing or reducing rebound while steroids are reduced in a measured way.

Patient 1: Treatment with Dr Wheatgrass Skin Recovery Spray

This case of infantile eczema demonstrates how this condition can be successfully treated without resorting to using topical steroids which can lead to dependency or addiction and the “Red Skin Syndrome”.

The baby was initially treated with these drugs which is often the first step towards dependency in numerous young children and infants. Also, it is quite likely that many adults who still suffer so-called “eczema” are actually the victims of topical steroid withdrawal – that their “eczema” actually healed itself when they were young, but the dependency on TS remained.

The trouble with TS treatment is that the rash often clears up quickly and mother is happy until…. it flares again. More visits to the doctor are required and, as the rash becomes increasingly resistant to treatment, stronger topical steroids are prescribed. All this time, what is happening is that the TS are gradually thinning the skin (atrophy) which is now losing its ability to perform its numerous functions such as protecting the body from infection. The more the skin atrophies or thins out, the more difficult the problem becomes to control with medication and the harder it becomes to stop the TS.

This is why I use wheatgrass extract on infants and children with eczema and those with topical steroid withdrawal problems. It is a simple and natural way to control eczema outbreaks and helps the skin recover as shown in the photographs above.

Patient 2: Treatment with Dr Wheatgrass Skin Recovery Spray

A classic example of “red skin syndrome” due to prolonged use (since childhood) and subsequent dependence on topical steroids. In this case, triamcinolone. Note the red, inflamed, roughened skin with chronic atrophic changes.

The steroids were ceased and wheatgrass extract was applied three times daily. (Now, 15 years later and considerably more experience, I only recommend applying the extract no more than three times weekly.)   Generally speaking, “Less is best” with wheatgrass.This particular young woman had suffered from severe, generalised atopic eczema since childhood. Her skin has caused her great distress and social isolation over the years. When she first attended Dr Chris's clinic in August 2003, she lacked self-confidence and was quite understandably angry at a condition that had turned her into a social pariah with never a partner. It is very gratifying to report that, thanks to wheatgrass extract, she is now happily enjoying her first relationship.

As Dr Chris says '' I wonder how many of my colleagues who are unwilling or unable to remove their pharmaceutical straitjacket and explore other treatment modalities, enjoy the privileged world of safe, hands-on healing that I do using wheatgrass, physical healing that is often substantially aided by the social, psychological and emotional benefits patients experience.''


''It’s been around 3 weeks after using the wheatgrass extract. I am amazed how strong the skin around his neck area and face has become. He still scratches but not as much as before using your products. He mainly scratches at night when his hungry or needs a nappy change. Before, he would easily get open wounds and the area starts to weep. He has not had any wounds since we started wheatgrass. My husband and I thought we will never find anything that can help our children’s condition get better. Even our friends noticed the improvement..'' W.C. Australia. 10 May 2016
