Since cataract is a progressive disease, it will usually result in blindness if nothing is done about it. A few days ago, I again asked my eye doctor why the eye profession has chosen to abandon cataract sufferers who can't or don't want to undergo cataract surgery, leaving them to go blind. In a surprising new turn of phrase, she then informed me that cataracts are "social blindness", and quite distinct from "medical blindness". She continued: "At University, we only learn how to treat "medical blindness", therefore we don't have to do anything about "social blindness". So don't any of you worry any more. Blindness is nothing to worry about as long as it's "social blindness"! Perhaps we should rename the 'Cataract Forum' as the 'Social Blindness Forum'?
We know how lucky dogs are when it comes to cataracts, because the eye profession didn't think they generate much surgical income, and allowed them to benefit from cataract reversal eyedrops just for dogs. Now, fish have joined the lucky dogs and cats. The American School in Taiwan did a project last year in which they successfully cleared fish cataracts using a chitosan nanoparticle suspension of a soluble sterol, 25-OH cholesterol, in eyedrops. But it was no more than an academic exercise to prove it could be done. The project team say they have no plans to take it any further to help humans. Whatever. They must have thought it important to help fish see where they're swimming. At least, fish no longer have to have cataract surgery any more! Human compassion will never cease to amaze me!
I have recently heard of the Bates method for eyesight. I am near sighted and would like to try this. My prescription is -4.5 each eye. Would like to hear from people who have had success with this method.
I have heard of someone called Greg March form Dr Mercola's website who has a cd series called:
'Reclaim Your Eyesight Naturally'. Has anyone tried this?
I am 38 years old and have struggled with dry eyes for 6 years. Recently my eyes have gotten worse. The eye dr says my oil glands are blocked. I am currently using Dr Christopher's eye wash and supplements 3 times per day. I also use a heated mask several times per day. I stay mostly on a paleo diet, have quit taking antihistamines, and use a lot of coconut oil.
My life has a lot of stress.
I have tried castor oil, but it seemed to make my eyes worse.
Any suggestions you have are appreciated.
the eyes don't have oil glands.
Usually dry eyes are due to food allergies.
Buy the book "The Pulse Test" from amazon to find out how your pulse rate reveals whether or not you are having an allergic reaction to a food or drink.
It also reveals food sensitivities which are minor allergies that your doctor can't detect.
Another cause can be adrenal exhaustion which can be caused by food allergies or just too much activity in your life. Rest is essential to balance. Reduce your allergic exposure (food and airborne) and take the herb Maca (1 tablespoon twice a day).
there are oil glands within the visual structure and it is these that your dr will be referring to- google meibomian glands: they line your eyelids. Good functioning of these are crucial to a decent tear film and eye health. sorry you're having such problems and no advice I'm afraid - but thought it might help to correct the misunderstanding in a previous post.
I recently discovered the solution to my chronic dry eye while waiting at Rite-Aid pharmacy. I read an article in their monthly magazine about Chronic Dry Eye. It said to take Omega-3 daily to relieve the problem. I bought some before leaving the store. I take it every day now. I got relief within the first week. It was great. I don't like fish so I use the one Rite-Aid sells that doesn't contain fish oil and the capsules are smaller so it is easier to take. I recommend anyone struggling with Chronic Dry Eye to start taking Omega-3.
I too have suffered from Chronic Dry eye syndrome for several years. I have made a complete recovery from it. I have written a free book about it called "Dry Eyes No More", a free .PDF book. A man by the name of Anthony DeSimone has apparantly read my book and written his own based on some of what I have written before.
Ok. The jist of the book "Dry Eyes No More" is to do with three major issues. If you address those issues, you will see significant relief in 2 weeks! Those three issues are as follows: -
1. The type of water that you drink.
2. The quantity of water that you drink.
3. The content of the water that you drink.
What your many other bodily problems you are having are telling you is that your body is too "acidic"! This is another problem which also has to be addressed. All remedies can be done cheaply:
1. Only Alkaline Water should be drunk. See YouTube on the benefits of alkaline water. You should be startled and amazed with renewed hope of a quick recovery.
2. You are not drinking enough "pure" water! Drink 16oz of Alkaline Water a day. Do it slowly, including before going to bed.
3. Your Alkaline Water should be free of additives and chlorine. Chlorine is a menace to maintaining "wet" eyes.
Avoid Florine where possible!
Change your diet to as follows: -
Eat only a "raw" diet during the day and anything you want in the evening. - Exceptions: No sugar, alchohol, nicotine and caffeine except on the weekends. Keep reducing your consumption of these "exceptions" until they are rare.
*Raw diet: Salads, fruits, vegetables. Pure. No dressings. Plenty of drinking water.
You should see an astonishing recovery within two weeks. The lessons learned from your recovery should keep you on this program indefinitely!
a.) The alkaline drinking water you drink should be used in your cooking water also. (This is very important)!
b.) Never mix waters! If your drink alkaline water, drink and use only alkaline water: - If at a restaurant, only drink your bottled alkaline water. If at friends, do the same too.
c.) Always carry your alkaline water around with you every where you go.
David Barker: (The original) Dry Eyes No More. (I will make it available to the public again).
I am feeling a lot better since I started taking iodine. My eyes are not 100% cured, but they are much more comfortable.
I will look into the alkaline water. Thanks!
I have fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, low adrenal and some thyroid issues, sinusitis, leaky gut, allergies, insomnia, and I take dhea to help my brain function. All these issues are mostly under control through paleo diet, gentle exercise, brain exercises to turn off my "fight or flight" reflex, supplements, massage, chiropractic, prayer, journaling, and forgiveness.
My chiropractic neurologist has helped me a lot. He just didn't know what to do about my dry eyes.
Hi, I have a little problem with my stool. There are white/grey stuffs, (similiar to dust) on it. (was asking myself why there is dust in my body?) I can't figure out what is my problem. I feel very tired everyday, I have no strenght, and low bloody pressure. I feel better after eating foods with sugar. I also have dry skin under my beard and under my hair.
Hope you can help me, sorry for my English. Thanks!
Need Help -Increasing Eye Floaters and Chronic Sinus problems of Ear/Nose and throat.
About 10 yrs ago I had severe tinnitus for 3 months, and felt fluid in my ears. The ENT found nothing. Few yrs after that, I had maddening itchy Nose, Ears, Eyes and throat. I thought It was just allergies and was given a sinus spray. It had temporary relief but I would get fever, chills after using the medicine.
Last yr I noticed that my ears stopped producing wax and nothing came out of my nose ever. I also stopped getting colds. I also have squishy feeling and noise when I turn my head. In the ear where I felt fluid 10 yrs ago now gets occasional clicking sounds, especially after taking supplements or meds.
I've been on parasite cleanse since last year. After each series of meds I noticed a drastic increase in eye floaters. I am beginning to worry about my vision if I cannot get rid of these floaters. Please help.
I have fluid in my ears and bad sinus problems also. Im thinking the worms are clogging the flow of fluids including spinal fluid. I also had tinutitis when trying to clear out my sinuses. The parasites are to blame. If you are continually flushing out your sinuses you cld be making things worse. After i stopped daily flushing of my sinuses the tinutitus slowly went away. The worms cld have possibly chewed some holes and pahways in your sinuses causing fluid leakage.
When I was a teenager, my mom took me to a dentist who said I had about 5 cavities and filled my teeth with silver. As far as I could tell I only had one teeth hurting and felt that perhaps he filled other teeth unnecessarily. I dont know. Over the yrs I would have the same recurring dream of my teeth shattering and crumbling in my mouth and me spitting them all out.
Anyway another dentist removed the mercury and refilled them with that white stuff. I only have 1 mercury filling in my mouth now. I recently removed a problematic wisdom teeth.
The other day I felt something move in my jaw near my ears which surprised me. I have started taking Iodine recently and now I feel movement in my ears as if something is relocating..
While reading reviews on Goji berries on Amazon. com, I came across one that said 1/4 cup of berries in warm water to hydrate. after eating the berries drink the soaking water. I was skeptical, but I did it, and it did help 95 %.
Doing a search on Goji berries shows that they are good for eye health. You might try them.
They are said to be very anti ageing and help the kidneys and liver and the eyes as you mention. Incidentally, Chinese traditional medicine believe that the liver and the eye function are closely related.
I love them and cannot eat enough. I had 5Kg delivered yesterday and have already eaten almost 0.5Kg in less than 24 hours.
The only problem is all the carbs in them. I do intend trying to ferment them as soon as I get a new liquidizer to allow the bacteria easier access to the berries carbs. If the bacteria would consume the carbs leaving the beneficial properties then that would suit me. One problem is that some of the beneficial elements of Goji (Gou Qi Zi) berries are polysaccharides which could get destroyed by bacteria. I will have to try it out and find out whether it works.
When I developed eye floaters after cataract surgery it was so disheartening, figuring i would have to have another surgery to try and get rid of these floaters. I searched the internet for countless hours looking for solutions. I found a natural treatment that worked for me after what seemed like months of looking.
Im happy to say that my floaters are up to 90% gone as of writing this and i started the program only 1 month ago. Just letting people know try the natural methods first before considering costly surgery.
