Wheatgrass and Infection and Oral Health

The use of water soluble chlorophyll in oral sepsis. An experimental study of 300 cases. Goldberg S. 1943. Am. J. Surg. 1943;62:117-123.

Water soluble chlorophyll was used to treat mouth infections and following dramatic and satisfactory early results, over 300 cases of Vincent's stomatitis and pyorrhea have been treated. In pyorrhoea the use of chlorophyll resulted in cessation of bleeding from gums and growth of new tissue, while in Vincent's stomatitis, chlorophyll regularly brought about complete recovery and more promptly than with other agents. The non-toxic nature and soothing effect of chlorophyll is also beneficial.

Homer Judkin, D.D.S. of the Paris Hospital in Paris, Illinois, sent shock waves through the dental community when he announced his success in controlling Vincent’s angina (trench mouth) and advanced cases of pyorrhea through the injection of chlorophyll into the gums.
