Macular degeneration - conventional medicine has little to offer
Macular degeneration is a major cause of deteriorating sight in old age for which conventional medicine has little to offer. The cells at the back of the eye which detect light and convert this into nerve impulses to the brain are easily damaged and degenerate with time. However this damage can be slowed by taking antioxidants and zinc. Environmental doctors can give plenty of examples of patients whose vision has been much improved through taking supplements, (I have a patient who could only count fingers before supplements, but could read a large print book after) but a recent study showed that people with early macular degeneration can prevent or slow further degeneration.
Macular degeneration is an inevitable result of eating Western diets high in sugar and refined carbohydrate. So the treatment is:
- The general approach to maintaining and restoring good health
- Accelerated ageing is often due to poor antioxidant status. It is really important this is corrected. See Antioxidants and Anti-ageing - Slow the Ageing Process.
- Check for Hypothyroidism
- N-Acetyl-Carnosine drops are well worth a try!
