Care and Prevention of Cataracts
It is possible to manage cataracts with research-proven nutritional supplementation and natural lifestyle changes. Early stage cataracts can not only be prevented, but can even be reversed through nutrition, supplementation and lifestyle changes. *There are 4 stages to cataracts. Please do NOT wait until you are told you need surgery to remove them to make changes.
Source of Vitamin C:
Alppha Lipoic Acid
Vitamin C * Learn how high levels of vitamin C may be protective against the progression of cataracts. Published in the Ophthalmology journal by scientists at King’s College, London,
Camu Camu Powder is a great source of Vitamin C you can sprinkle in smoothies, salads and sauces and over fruit. It has a nice sweet flavour.
Helpful Supplements/Eye Drops:
*Professional Structured Silver 30 ppm- "
*Structured Silver is not the same as Colloidal Silver.
*30 ppm is only available from your physician (or Vision Centre)
Apply 2-3 drops of liquid structured silver 30 ppm directly in the eyes 1-4 x a day. Drink 2 teaspoons twice a day for one week or until the problem is remedied. You may expect to have an improvement in your eyesight very quickly, especially if you have very dry eyes or a bacterial or viral infection. Cataracts that are very progressed are difficult to reverse, but the surface of the eye and the clarity of the lens can be improved by using structured silver topically."
From the Book The Most Precious Metal by Dr. Gordon Peterson.
* Cineraria Homeopathic Cataract Eye Drops (for beginning Cataracts)
Cineraria Homeopathic Cataract Eye Drops:
"Yesterday, my eye doctor, Dr. Jo Johnson, ophthalmologist, looked into my left eye and said: "Surprising!" She looked into my right eye and said: "This is a surprise! Good news! No surgery is indicated." I said: "That's because I take the cineraria." -- V. Hatch 03/20/2009 (Quote taken from www.naturaleyecare.com Marc Grossman O.D.)
You can also ask your Naturopath/ Homeopath for these or similar products:
Ortho Eyes (similar to Cineraria) from AOR www.AOR.ca
and Brite Eyes III.
These N-acetylcarnosine eye-drops have been shown in research studies to help improve cataracts, and possibly enable the patient to keep their natural lens avoiding the need for cataract surgery.
The statistics in the human trials show that N-acetylcarnosine eye-drops applied for 6-months twice daily into the eye in patients all suffering from senile cataract, had the following results: 88.9% had an improvement of glare sensitivity 41.5% had an improvement of the transmissivity of the lens 90% had an improvement in visual acuity
2 drops in each affected eye (wait 1 minute between each drop) 2 times per day
Proper Hydration and Nutrition:
Start Drinking Alkaline Water.
Hydration & Absorption: Because the water clusters are small 6-8 molecules per cluster vs. 10-14 in tap or bottled waters, they are easily absorbed. Water being the 'carrier' of all your nutrients - vitamins and minerals - means that by drinking alkaline water your nutrients will also be absorbed more efficiently.
"After drinking Alkaline Ionized water, I cut my supplements costs by 1/3 because I was able to absorb what I was taking in" Andrea Sweetnam, Natural Health Manager and Purchaser for Optimum Health and Vitamins, Edmonton)
Alkalize: Our blood is Alkaline and drinking Alkaline water restores your bodies natural pH balance boosting your vitality.
Antioxidants: Alkaline water is a highly absorbable liquid antioxidant (antioxidants are negatively charged ions) that helps gently cleanse your body and neutralize free radicals (positively charged ions that accumulate in the body)

Why: Free Radicals are responsible for most cataracts. Free Radicals are natural byproducts of metabolism. Food allergies or sensitivities, particularly to dairy, wheat and soy congest sinuses and impair lymphatic and veinous drainage resulting in decreased nutrition to the eyes.
