Vision Problems


Description

 

There are many different types of vision problems, including:

 

- Age-related macular degeneration (AMD)

- Cataracts

- Diabetic retinopathy

- Glaucoma

- Night blindness

- Etc.

 

Symptoms vary by condition, e.g.:

 

- AMD - damage to the macula area of the retina, gradual loss of central vision

- Cataracts - clouding of the lens of the eye, fuzzy/blurred vision, gradual vision loss

- Glaucoma - pressure buildup and pain in the eye, gradual loss of peripheral vision leading to tunnel vision

 

 

Causes

 

Potential contributing factors include:

 

- Oxidative stress (free-radical damage)

- Diabetes

- High blood pressure

- Atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries)

- Smoking

- Nutrient deficiencies

- Genetic errors in collagen metabolism

- Environmental toxin exposure - e.g., heavy metals

 

 

My Treatment Approach

 

Address each of the potential root causes, e.g.:

 

- If present, address diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease.

 

- Identify and address potential food allergies or intolerances.

 

- Shift to an anti-inflammatory diet.

 

- Include supplementation to support eye function, e.g.:

      - Antioxidants

      - Vitamins     

      - Minerals

      - Herbals

      - Essential fatty acids

 

- Avoid future toxin exposure, and safely / properly reduce existing toxin levels in the body.

 

- If smoking, try to stop on your own or join a smoking cessation program.
