Diabetic Foot Ulcers

Question and Answer with Sproutman and Dr. Wheatgrass

There is some good news for people with diabetic foot ulcers, a painful problem with no real cure. Below are some words about this from a conversation that I had with Dr. Wheatgrass—whose real name is Chris Reynolds, MD.

DR WG: Diabetic foot ulcers constitute a huge market worldwide, and there’s no cure. But we seem to be heading in the right direction with our wheatgrass spray. We also have other patients (in India) who are improving quite dramatically.

SMAN: That’s very exciting Chris, those photos don’t lie. I’ll post them for my customers to see although they are a little graphic.

DR WG: Our new gel has just been manufactured, so once lab tests are clear, we’ll send you a couple of samples to try. It’s really nice stuff.

SMAN: That is great news. I am looking forward to seeing it. Your products are very popular with my customers. The same people continue to reorder. Why anyone do that if they were not getting results. I’ve spoken to some of them and they tell me your wheatgrass cream is the only thing that helps them. You have a lot to be proud of.

DR WG: Thank you for your kind remarks. However, it’s a pity my medical colleagues still turn their backs on me. Even podiatrists, who do a lot of work on diabetic foot ulcers are doing the same. I posted our results on one podiatric forum, and although around 200 have viewed our results, there has not been one enquiry, even though I offered them the spray to try gratis. Perhaps they feel their business threatened i.e. if we clear up the ulcers, bang goes our revenue! Where have all the humanitarians gone?!

SMAN: My take on it is that these doc’s don’t take to change very well. The spirit of entrepreneurship or the adventurous spirit is not something that comes with the medical profession. They are too many risks for them. Too much liability, too much paperwork, too much criticism from their colleagues and medical society if they stray and something goes wrong. It’s mostly the system within which they are forced to work that is the problem. If they stray from the conventional practice, it could come back to bite them. So they are trained to think small and stray very little.
