The authors of this study said their results demonstrated that wheatgrass-activated immune cells played a central role in building immunity…Wheatgrass contains vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, polysaccharides, and large amounts (70%) of chlorophyll. In line with folk sayings, the health benefits of wheatgrass may include improved digestion, blood pressure reduction, heavy metal detoxification from the bloodstream, immune system modulation, and gout alleviation. Several papers have indicated that wheatgrass has anti-tumor activities, anti-oxidant properties, and a therapeutic effect on distal ulcerative colitis…This study is the first to reveal the immunostimulatory component of wheatgrass
Wheatgrass is without doubt a powerful healing agent – both for the body as a whole, and when applied to the skin. This is nothing new. History tells us that the grasses in general have been known to have healing properties going back several thousand years. Ann Wigmore in the 70’s cured many with terminal cancer and other chronic illnesses using freshly juiced wheatgrass.
Although there are numerous ways wheatgrass can improve your quality of life, it is of course no panacea. However, there are many ways it can help heal or improve conditions where pharmaceuticals and other remedies don’t work. Also, by taking wheatgrass in any form, fresh juice, tablets, powder or liquid supplements and persevering with it, you can be almost certain you will do a lot for your general health and wellbeing.
It appears that wheatgrass works by activating growth factors that have a powerful effect at the cell membrane. What results is a broad spectrum of physiological and biochemical effects that can boost your immune system, stimulate your bone marrow (blood production), and kill cancer cells (at least in laboratory studies). Taking wheatgrass can also reduce the side effects of chemotherapy
The topical effects of wheatgrass can be equally amazing. For instance, in eczema, psoriasis, molluscum contagiosum and anal fissure. Wheatgrass is also about to revolutionise wound and ulcer treatment as it did in the 1930’s. Non or slow healing leg ulcers, e.g. venous, arterial, diabetic, can all heal or be helped to heal naturally with wheatgrass.
Other topical uses include reduced skin toxicity (pain, inflammation and blistering) in cancer and other patients having radiotherapy and for the effective treatment of burns.

It’s over four years now since 74-year-old Danny was first diagnosed with chronic cancer of the stomach.
Doctors told him he would be “dead in a matter of weeks”.
An ulcer had burst inside him and he was rushed to hospital from his remote farmhouse at Dunaff, in the Urris district on the Inishowen peninsula.
Danny very nearly bled to death. And as surgeons fought to save him, they discovered a deadly form of cancer, previously confined to his stomach, had spread throughout his body.
Doctors said his only option was to undergo a series of cancer-killing treatments, but they warned him that he may not survive the course.
“I told the doctors I wasn’t prepared to undergo the course of treatments they had suggested. I knew it would kill me,” he says.
“They were furious I had come to that conclusion. The consultant warned me I’d be dead in three months.”
However, Danny’s decision was based on much more than just the whim of a stubborn Donegal man.
He first heard about the healing properties of wheatgrass from a friend in Buncrana and the more he learnt, the more he became convinced that wheatgrass and its healing properties could prove to be the key to beating the disease.
Back on his farm, Danny went to work. Using skills acquired over 60 years working the land, Danny grew his first batch of wheatgrass.
Once a friend had shown him how to extract its life-saving qualities, by processing the grass through a juicer, Danny was ready to sample his first drink of the wheatgrass juice.
“I didn’t know what to expect, but I was determined to give it a go,” says Danny.
“Within seven days the burning sensation I had in my side was gone and I was beginning to feel a lot better. I stopped taking the tablets which had been prescribed and I haven’t taken once since.
“A month later the pain had completely disappeared and I knew I was on the mend. The wheatgrass was working. I had made the right decision to reject the advice of the doctors,” he says.
Danny’s weight, which had dropped from 12st 7lbs to under eight stone, began to increase.
Starting on a daily dose of a single fluid ounce of wheatgrass juice, Danny worked his way up until he was consuming a maximum of seven times that amount.
And he spread the message to others about the unique healing qualities of the miracle grass that he was growing in a shed at the farmhouse he shares with his sister Briget.
Today Danny McDonald stands a healthy 12 stone and the cancer which was killing him has disappeared.
The grey deathly pallor which once dominated his appearance and features is gone. Now his skin is smooth and extremely healthy looking.
“I know a lot of doctors think wheatgrass doesn’t have the qualities to kill cancer, but I am living proof that it does. And although many doctors won’t admit it publicly, gradually they are coming round to see the benefits of wheatgrass.”
A staggering 2,600 people have beaten a path to his farmhouse to find out how this quiet farmer managed to rid himself of his cancer.
“People ask me how I did it and I just say one word, ‘wheatgrass’,” he adds.
“Gary’s platelet count rose every day for 7 days from 61,000 to 141,000 and the only thing we did differently was administer wheatgrass. That’s absolutely phenomenal and it’s fully documented on the hospital record.” – Dr. Leonard Smith, MD, Cancer Surgeon
“Barley grass leaf extract dramatically inhibits the growth of human prostatic cancer cells grown in tissue culture. …It may provide a new nutritional approach to the treatment of prostate cancer. “
