Microcurrent Stimulation in the Treatment of Dry and Wet Macular Degeneration

In this 2015 study published in the journal Clinical Ophthalmology we see a small study with 15 people with both wet and dry macular degeneration. If you are considering a program utilizing microcurrent stimulation you will be pleased with the results shown in this study. Only microcurrent stimulation was used in this study and treatments were only done once a week. Still, some improvement in vision was seen, mostly in those in those study participants with dry macular degeneration.

We were using a frequency specific microcurrent stimulator. In the few studies published using frequency specific microcurrent stimulation, the results have been worse or at best the same as those using the MicroStim 100 or the earlier MicroStim 400 professional unit. You will pay a great deal more for a frequency specific unit but will not see better results than you can expect with a MicroStim 100 series.

What did the study show:
More people showed improvement then decline over the course of the study. Modern models for treatment programs that include microcurrent stimulation also include various other therapies to improve outcomes. With these more robust programs a higher percentage of people show improvement and very few people actually showed decline, justifying the additional effort beyond treatment with microcurrent stimulation alone.

“Can Macular Degeneration Be Reversed” – An Article in The Lion

This is an article written about Grace in the publication The Lion, which is part of the Lions Club International. Melvin Jones in 1917 asked a simple and world-changing question – what if people put their talents to work improving their communities? Almost 100 years later, Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest service club organization, with 1.35 million members in more than 46,000 clubs and countless stories of Lions acting on the same simple idea: let’s improve our communities.

“Help When Blindness Falls on Deaf Ears” Chicago Tribune article on Grace’s work with Usher Syndrome

If you have Usher syndrome, you will find this article interesting. Usher syndrome is a rare disease that affects both the vision and the hearing. The visual challenges are very similar to retinitis pigments, and Grace was asked to see if her program would help people with Usher. I have met some of the local people she helped, and they did have improvements in both their vision
and their hearing. The program was a bit more complex than the program for helping the eyes only, but it was helpful.
 
Some people at the Illinois School for the Deaf heard about Grace’s work, and invited her to come and work with some of their students. This article from the Chicago Tribune describes her initial visit to the school. Grace did work with the staff there about how to do some of her program with their students, and the feedback they gave her was that the students who did the program improved.

Bioelectrical Stimulation in An Integrated Treatment for Macular Degeneration, Retinitis Pigmentosa, Glaucoma, CMV-Retinitis & Diabetic Retinopathy

This study is a follow-up to the previous study published by Grace from the late 1980s. In this study she partnered with an ophthalmologist in San Francisco and over two years they studied people with a variety of diagnoses, showing significant improvements in vision for all diagnoses and in about 85% of the people they worked with.
 
This was a tightly run study, but was refused by the peer-reviewed journals because one of the investigators (Grace Halloran PhD) was not a physician. Grace did present this study at a number of respected scientific conferences. It was her presentation at a conference sponsored by the Department of Electrical Engineering at Mankato State University in Minneapolis where I met Grace.
 
Doctor Jarding also presented his work treating people with graces protocol at this conference. It is important to put the success that Grace had been improving vision in people with diseases that mainstream medicine considers untreatable in perspective. The peer-reviewed literature is full of studies looking at all manner of treatments and interventions that have attempted to help people with untreatable problems like macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa and Stargardt.
 
From the hundreds of thousands of people who’ve been studied, clear understanding has emerged of the natural history of these diseases. Namely, the natural history of these diseases is that people progressively see loss of vision. Some studies involving supplements alone have shown an ability to slow the pace of decline. Only the integrative approaches utilizing electrical stimulation, supplementation, oriental medicine and color therapy have brought real improvements to people’s vision.
 
A therapy that made even one person better would warrant further study. The work pioneered by Grace Halloran PhD has now helped thousands of people. If you would like to learn the Better Eye Health Program can help you, please contact us.

Alternative Medicine Article: Saving Sight by Grace Halloran, PhD

Alternative Medicine Magazine featured a couple of articles on Grace Halloran, PhD and her pioneering work with reversing eye disease. If you need some hope that there is hope for diseases like macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa and Stargardt disease then read these articles.
 
Alternative Medicine Magazine was not a peer-reviewed journal, but its owner and editor, Burton Goldberg was a master at identifying the most promising and useful integrative therapies when they appeared. Living in Northern California, he was surrounded by people pushing the boundaries of what was possible in medicine, and he saw the positive results first hand. He only
reported on things that he could personally verify, and his was the premier publication on Alternative Medicine when it was in print.
