(Natural News) Eye disease is on the rise – especially for older Americans. Cataracts affect more than 24 million people age 40 and over, while 2.7 million suffer with glaucoma and 2.1 million have macular degeneration. We want healthy eyes; yet, Western medicine can only offer us toxic drugs and invasive surgical procedures – which rarely offer a real solution.
A perfect recipe for unhealthy eyes: Antioxidant deficiencies, radiation and other environmental toxins
Cataracts, manifested by clouding and loss of elasticity in the lens of the eye, can be caused by a variety of factors. Poor nutrition, vitamin deficiencies, diabetes, arteriosclerotic changes that come with poor lifestyle decisions and heavy metal toxicity can all play a role in damaging your eye sight.
In addition, with advancing age, the eye loses valuable antioxidants – including inositol, vitamin C and glutathione, the body’s most powerful natural antioxidant. In fact, Dr. Kondrot reports that the levels of glutathione in the lens can decrease until they are 4 to 14 times lower than levels experienced in youth.
Fortunately, there are many holistic (homeopathic) remedies that may allow patients to avoid cataract surgery – a significant benefit, according to Dr. Kondrot. He warns that cataract surgery can lead to macular degeneration, and should only be used as a last resort.
Keep in mind, there is solid scientific research supporting Dr. Kondrot’s use of nutritional supplements. Many studies confirm the effectiveness of vitamins in reducing the incidence of cataracts, with one Canadian study showing that patients over 55 who consume supplementary vitamins C and E reduce their risk of developing cataracts by 50 percent.
Macular degeneration is the most common cause of blindness in people over 65
Another serious eye condition, macular degeneration, is caused by a thickening of the membranes in the eye – and can eventually lead to hemorrhage, formation of scar tissue, and loss of vision. Early symptoms are blurred vision, difficulty with close work, wavy lines and visual distortions.
According to Dr.Kondrot, microcurrent therapy can reverse macular degeneration – particularly with the recent addition of new Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) technology. With FSM, the eye is exposed to frequencies that are specific to retinal tissue, as well as to individual pathologies. Each tissue and each type of pathology has a frequency, enabling the FSM to match the exact abnormalities that are present in the damaged tissue and to neutralize frequencies that are in disharmony.
Other therapies utilized by Dr. Kondrot include personalized programs for detoxification from heavy metals, syntonics – the science of treating the eyes with selected light frequencies – and ozone therapy to stimulate regeneration and healing.
