Eye Health

Glaucoma is a very common eye condition and is a result of increased fluid pressure in the eyes. Maintaining proper fluid balance in the body is vitally important for a number of reasons. There are a number of holistic and non-toxic, non-pharmaceutical substances that can be prescribed to improve fluid retention and restore proper fluid balance and help bring eye pressure back to normal The kidneys play a prominent role if fluid balance. If your eye health has been compromised for some time you need to work with your alternative healthcare provider to determine if you have compromised liver or kidney function, undetected diabetes or severe nutritional deficiencies.

Macular degeneration or Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD) is a degenerative eye disease found in adults over age 55 and older. The macula is the area of the retina where images are focused.It is the area of the eye responsible for fine vision. There are two forms: Dry ARMD and Wet ARMD. Dry ARMD has been linked to a severe lack of phytonutrients from fruits and vegetables in ones daily diet over an extended period of time. There have been studies that show that an increased consumption of cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, kale, chard, Brussels sprouts) can stabilize the eyes and halt the progress of ARMD. But ARMD has also been linked to high blood pressure, atherosclerosis and smoking.

Wet ARMD (or neovascular) is characterized by the growth of abnormal blood vessels. This form of ARMD can be treated with laser surgery. It is important not to wait too long to seek medical attention when you have compromised vision where Wet ARMD may be the cause.

The underlying causes of eye disease may not be simple to solve and masking the symptoms with eye drops and drugs may overlook a more serious cause such as compromised liver and kidney function. Work with your alternative healthcare provider to diagnose and treat the underlying cause of your eye problem as soon as you notice a change in eye health or vision.
