Glaucoma is a medical condition characterized by damage to the optic nerves. Over time, this can lead to blindness. It happens when eye pressure gradually builds up in your eyes.
With my knowledge of holistic healing, I have been able to stop this disease from progressing in people and thereby stopping vision loss. I will be sharing some of my findings that have helped me in helping people with glaucoma.
To treat or cure a disease, you first have to know the cause. When you know the real cause, you have solved half of your problem. Relieving symptoms with eye drops and surgery won’t help you.
In natural healing, we treat the whole body. Socrates said, “the part can never be well until the whole is well”. If your whole body is healthy, your eyes can’t be sick.
So I treat your whole body and not just the eyes in isolation. Glaucoma is called the “silent vision killer” but in Nature Cure Foundation, we call it the “silent health killer”.
This is simply because the root causes of glaucoma are the same as that of hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Glaucoma is linked to mental problems and that is because glaucoma starts in the brain and not the eyes.
Studies have shown that glaucoma increases one’s risk for Alzheimer’s by 390%. Glaucoma is a predictor of Alzheimer’s disease.
So the eye pressure you feel now is not the root cause of glaucoma. Some things in your body went wrong, starting from the brain and your eyes were affected. Your nutrition also caused this.
What Happens When You Have Glaucoma?
The true root cause of glaucoma is hormonal imbalance. Long before you notice glaucoma, it has already started in your brain tissues. By the time you start noticing the symptoms, your brain nerve tissues have already been affected.
This damage would progress to the optic nerves of your eyes. Then you start noticing eye pressure and difficulty seeing. This eye pressure would restrict the passage of nutrients to your optic nerves.
Your eye ducts get blocked and the drainage mechanism of your eyes gets clogged. This forces pressure to build up in your eyes and forces your eyes backward.
The tiny blood vessels at the back of your eyes that transport nutrients to your optic nerve fibers would be affected. Your optic nerve would go numb and you experience vision loss when they don’t get enough nutrients.
The body always tries to save itself in every unpleasant situation. So it stops the production of aqueous humor to prevent your eyes from exploding.
In a healthy body, new aqueous humor is produced regularly and the old one drained. This cannot happen in a glaucoma patient anymore.
In a glaucoma patient, the eye retains the aqueous humor because the drainage mechanism is clogged. The aqueous humor in the eyes becomes stale, old, and depleted.
This would lead to the buildup of more pressure in your eyes. Nutrients would find it difficult to reach the back of your eyes and your optic nerve fibers would break down.
They starve to death and vision loss occurs.
What Are The Root Causes of Glaucoma?
Glaucoma is caused by hormonal imbalance which is triggered by:
- The buildup of toxins in the body
- Insufficient nutrients to your optic nerve
The Accumulation of Toxins in the Body
Years of wrong lifestyle and nutrition can promote the accumulation of toxins in your body. Your liver can become overwhelmed and unable to properly carry out its functions of detoxification.
These toxins can affect your hormones. It can cause problems in your nerve tissues starting at your brain and coming down to the optic nerves of your eyes.
We get these toxins into our body from processed and unnatural foods that contain all kinds of chemicals. These chemicals are used to preserve the foods, enhance the tastes, and make it attractive and addictive.
Most of these chemicals are man-made and they cause havoc in your body. You also get toxins from your chemical-based skin and hair care products.
We inhale some from our toxic environment. You can be exposed to some in your place of work. Toxins are everywhere. In this case, you have to detoxify your body of toxins.
Negative emotions, thoughts, and words also make your body toxic. You have to let bad thoughts, memories, and feelings go if you want to heal. The body and mind cannot be separated and any thought on your mind would reflect on your body.
Disrupted Supply of Nutrients to your Optic Nerves
The second main cause of glaucoma is the lack of nutrient supply to your optic nerve. Your optic nerve depends heavily on both essential and non-essential nutrients for vision.
You have to start nourishing your optic nerves by changing your diet to that of a healthy one. I would advise that you go whole plant-based until you recover.
Avoid foods that mess with your hormones. Eliminate processed, junks, and unnatural foods from your diet. Go organic and remove trans fats and sugary drinks and foods from your diet.
Eat lots of fruits and raw green veggies. You also need to take supplements. You need to increase the levels of vitamins A, B, C, D, and E in your body. You also need more zinc and chromium.
You need zeaxanthin and lutein which can be found in green leafy vegetables. Your change in nutrition will nourish your optic nerves and prevent vision loss.
You also have to increase your intake of herbs like bitter kola, ginger, garlic, turmeric, peppers, etc.
Signs and Symptoms of Glaucoma
The following are the common signs and symptoms of glaucoma to look out for.
- Nausea and vomiting
- Severe eye pain
- Abdominal pain
- Blurred vision
- Small blind spots
- Halos around light
Can Glaucoma be Cured?
Conventionally, they would tell you glaucoma is irreversible or it cannot be cured. However, there are many stories of people who have reversed glaucoma naturally.
I have stopped vision loss and even reversed this condition for people. So I believe glaucoma is curable. What you need to do is to find out what is making your eye pressure go up which is not far from what I have mentioned above.
When you eliminate these root causes of glaucoma, your body would heal itself and your vision restored.
