Even though I’m reading, researching, and writing every day and am 70 years old, I have very few vision issues. Unfortunately, this is not true of some of my contemporaries. They deal with macular holes, macular degeneration, glaucoma, and cataracts. So, I thought it was time to summarize some natural health tips to improve senior eye health.
What Is Macular Degeneration?
I wrote about macular degeneration in my blog, “Treating Macular Degeneration and Macular Hole.” Here is how I defined macular degeneration:
Macular degeneration is a degenerative condition affecting the central part of the retina called the macula and resulting in distortion or loss of central vision. It occurs especially in older adults, and is called age-related macular degeneration. The exact cause of macular degeneration is not known, but the condition develops as the eye ages and the medical texts are quick to tell you that there is no cure.
What is a Macular Hole?
In the same blog, I talk about macular holes:
A macular hole involves damage at the junction between the vitreous and the retina and apparently it is not related to macular degeneration. Medical texts say that rarely, trauma may lead to the development of a macular hole, however in the vast majority of cases macular holes develop spontaneously. Thus, they are quick to assure us that there is no known way to prevent their development through any nutritional or chemical means. But they do say that shrinking of the vitreous usually causes the hole and as a person ages, the vitreous becomes watery and begins to pull away from the retina potentially causing a hole.
Working with Macular Conditions
If you want detailed reasons for my recommendations, please click on the link to the article (above). But, my tips for working with macular conditions are:
For any macular condition, hydration, unrefined sea salt, and all the Total Body ReSet products are important. Drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces of water, adding ¼ tsp of salt to each liter. Take the whole Total Body ReSet bundle: ReMag, ReMyte, ReAline, ReStructure and RnA ReSet Drops. With the RnA ReSet Drops you can also get an eye cup and a bottle of pure saline from the drugstore. Put saline into the eye cup and put in ONE drop of RnA ReSet Drops and rinse your eyes once or twice a day!!
What is Glaucoma?
In another blog post, I explain glaucoma in detail. Here is a summary or my explanation:
[G]laucoma occurs when fluid and fluid pressure builds up in the front of the eye because the trabecular network that is supposed to drain excess fluid is not working properly. I say apparently because there are many variables in glaucoma where people with high pressure may not even have vision problems. Glaucoma is tested any time you visit an optometrist or opthalmologist. If your pressure is much above 21, you are offered eye drops and in worse cases – laser or surgery.
Working with Glaucoma
I believe that glaucoma is caused by calcification, and support for this opinion can be found by reading the entire blog post about glaucoma (link above). That is why I make these suggestions:
- saturate your body with ReMag to dissolve this calcification and
- optimize all the components of the aqueous fluid with all the formulas in Total Body ReSet.
What Are Cataracts?
The NIHdefines cataracts in this way:
A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye that affects vision. A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye that affects vision. Most cataractsare related to aging. Cataracts are very common in older people. By age 80, more than half of all Americans either have a cataract or have had cataract surgery. A cataract can occur in either or both eyes.
Working with Cataracts
Get an eye cup and a bottle of pure saline from the drugstore. Put saline into the eye cup and put in ONE drop of RnA ReSet Drops in the eye cup with the saline solution and rinse your eyes once or twice a day!!
You Can Improve Your Vision!
You don’t have to accept pronouncements that age will create a less than condition for your eyes. With well-absorbed nutrition, hydration, and RnA ReSet Drops in a saline solution in an eye cup rinse, you can take your health power back and improve the structure and function of the cells in your eyes!
