4 Natural Remedies for Glaucoma Awareness Month

black-girl-with-lemon-glaucoma

Glaucoma is a condition that causes damage to the optic nerve, ultimately resulting in an irreversible loss of vision. It is the second leading cause of blindness. There are two main types of glaucoma: Open Angle and Closed Angle. Open Angle Glaucoma progresses slowly and symptoms may go unnoticed as there is usually only subtle vision loss. Closed Angle Glaucoma happens quickly and can lead to pain and rapid vision loss.

 

Symptoms of Glaucoma

The signs and symptoms of glaucoma will vary depending on the type one has. There are typically no indicators or warning signs that one has Open Angle Glaucoma. By the time the patient is aware of the vision loss, it is pretty late in the disease. Closed Angle Glaucoma reveals symptoms very quickly in response to the fast-occurring damage.

Open Angle Glaucoma Symptoms:

  • Patchy Blind Spots (in peripheral or central vision, usually in both eyes)
  • Tunnel Vision (in advanced stages of disease)

Closed Angle Glaucoma Symptoms:

  • Eye Pain (usually severe)
  • Blurred Vision
  • Lights Appear to have a halo-like glow around them
  • Severe Headache
  • Eye Redness
  • Sudden, Unexpected Vision Problems (especially in poor lighting)
  • Sudden Sight Loss

 

Natural Remedies for Glaucoma:

Exercise:

Exercise is a great way to help increase circulation throughout the body. Promoting overall circulation may help decrease or reverse the symptoms of glaucoma. A brisk walk or another light yet responsible exercise program are good routines to incorporate into your daily life. Be careful when it comes to yoga because it involves inverted exercises, which ultimately put pressure on the optic nerve. It’s best to avoid pressure on the optic nerve, as this is the primary cause of glaucoma.

 

Eliminate Food Allergens:

There is a possible link between glaucoma and food or environmental allergies. It’s best to eliminate or avoid any known allergens from your life to help curb the effects of glaucoma. You may even want to take an allergy or food allergy test to find out what you are allergic to, so that you can eliminate those allergens from your life.

 

Change Your Diet:

It’s best to consume raw foods that are high in vitamin C and antioxidants. Eating dark colored berries will give you lots of antioxidants and citrus fruits are loaded with vitamin C. You should also lower your insulin levels by avoiding grains and sugars such as bread, rice, pasta, cereal, and potatoes. High insulin levels can cause high blood pressure and may contribute to pressure in the eyes. Lowering your insulin levels via exercise is also a viable option.

 

Germanium:

Germanium helps increase available oxygen to the eyes and can aid in clearing congestion. You can start off using small amounts, making herbal teas with it, or using it as an essential oil. Slowly increase the amount you use if you feel that it is working.

 

Foods You Should Eat:

  • Blackberries
  • Blueberries
  • Geranium
  • Oranges
  • Grapefruit
  • Lemon
  • Spinach
  • Dark Leafy Greens (kale, chard, & collards)
  • Carrots
  • Tomatoes
  • Sesame Seeds
  • Walnuts

    Q: I have a problem with glaucoma and I have been going to a eye doctor for treatment. I really want another alternative treatment to heal my eyes because I hate taking all these drugs (poisons) into my eyes and suffering from the side-effects that comes with putting that mess in my eyes. I have went to the eye doctor a couple of days ago and was told that my pressure have went down to 20 from 24 and that they are trying to get it down to 15 and they gave me two more eyedrops to take along with one I'm already taking and so I have to take all three eyedrops about 4 times a day. In three weeks if my pressure doesn't go down then they want to do laser surgery. I am very distressed about that because I don't want them cutting on my eyes. So far, I have ordered from you a formula for glaucoma and I hope to recieve it as soon as possible and take it also, I just started drinking blueberry juice, the organic kind. Can you give me advice on what I should do from this point? Let me add that I'm 60 yrs old and afraid I am going to lose my sight and don't want to use the pharmaceuticles mess.

    A:

    If you hate doing a thing, then why do you do it? Really doesn't make any sense in all due honesty. The side effects are telling you the drugs are no good. Read the â€EYE PROBLEMS†article and you will do well to implement what it suggests. Drink the blueberry juice. Perform the FULL BODY DETOX, Beloved. It is not wise to be afraid, Beloved.

    Q: My FBD kit should arrive next week. What will I need in addition to it to restore the vision in my right eye? I am a 58 years on the planet, and am Aquarian contemplating, in a relationship with a Socrpio. I have had 2 C sections, a tonsillectomy, a right breast biopsy (benign), and am now in relatively good health with the exception of head pain over the right eye, droopy eyelid, and subsequent loss of vision since eyeball is swollen and distended. What do you recommend?

    A:

    Eye issues are covered in the article "Eye Problems" in our articles section. Sounds like a good detoxing will do you some good too.
