Prevention of Macular Degeneration Using Vitamins

By Carlyle Coash

Supplements are very important if you have a degenerative eye disease, or if these diseases run in your family. Over 60 years of research, and thousands of peer-reviewed papers have shown that supplements alone will slow the progression of eye disease, but they will not stop the progression, and they will not restore lost vision. Using the proper supplements, and optimizing your health may be all you need to prevent the development of eye disease if eye disease runs in your family. The Basic Protocol of supplements used in the Better Eye Health Program is our recommendation.

Can Vitamins Alone Help My Eyes?

By Carlyle Coash

Supplementing a healthy diet with vitamin and mineral supplements is recommended for all people with degenerative retinal diseases like macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa and Stargardt disease. Eye doctors recommend some form of vitamins for all their clients. However, vitamins alone will not stop the progression of these challenging problems. Vitamins alone will not restore lost vision. Other therapies in combination with vitamins can help restore lost vision but vitamins alone will not. Hundreds of peer-reviewed medical articles prove this. Here is a link to a list of the vitamins we recommend in the Better Eye Health Program™ protocol of basic supplements.

When is the Best Time To Take Taurine?

By Carlyle Coash

Taurine is in the basic protocol of eye supplements in the Better Eye Health Program™ because it is a raw material the body needs to repair and regenerate eye cells. Much of the regeneration and repair the body does occurs when we sleep, so we recommend you take taurine before bedtime, so it is in your blood and your body needs it. Also, taurine has been shown to support healthy sleep.

Taurine is an amino acid critical for rebuilding cells in the retina. It is often used to support healthy sleep. If you feel that taurine is affecting your sleep, please consult with your practitioner, as it is more likely that there is another explanation to be found.

Do You Need Bilberry?

By Carlyle Coash

The ideas many people have about the need for bilberry for eye health are, to put it mildly, pretty confused. Bilberries are simply a wild variety of blueberries. The frozen wild blueberries or organic blueberries in our local Trader Joe’s food store have a nutritional profile very similar to bilberries. A healthy food, but nothing about the nutritional value of bilberries or blueberries is unique. Some of the confusion comes from claims the English made during World War II that they had developed a “secret weapon” to allow their pilots to see at night, and to bomb the German army in the dead of night. After the war, it was revealed that the “secret weapon” was bilberry jam, and that the whole story was an elaborate propaganda scheme to put fear into German soldiers and citizens. 90% of the people who do the full Better Eye Health Program™ see significant and lasting improvement in their vision, and they are not taking bilberry, so we know it is not essential for eye health or eye healing.

Do We Need More DHA?

By Carlyle Coash

Everyone needs DHA, and most of us need more than we are getting. DHA is one of the essential fatty acids, meaning human beings need to eat it, since they cannot make it. DHA is an omega-3 essential fatty acid with a carbon chain containing 20 carbon atoms. (The “docosa” in docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is the Greek word for 20.) We get DHA directly from eating algae, or from eating things that exist in the food chain that begins with algae, like krill and fish. Most of the omega-3 essential fatty acids in our diet come from plant sources, and these have a carbon skeleton with 16 or 18 carbon atoms, i.e. linolenic acid. Human beings can convert smaller chain omega-3 fatty acids to the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids like DHA, but for every milligram of DHA we make in this internal conversion process, we need to eat 1000 mg of a shorter chain essential fatty acid. One quarter of the weight of our retina and brain is DHA! If you are trying to regenerate damaged tissues in your eyes, eat more DHA regularly.
