Your eye doctor may have told you that there’s no such thing as a cure for macular degeneration. Surgery, eye injections or laser therapy may have been prescribed. Yet, these treatments have not been proven to improve vision.
Unfortunately, you could be paying for an expensive treatment that doesn’t work.
Yet other macular degeneration treatments, such as microcurrent stimulation and nutritional supplementation hold great promise. In our clinic, we also include an extensive program of acupressure, exercises and color therapies which improve the health of the eyes, and the chances for healing.
Microcurrent stimulation is an impressive, affordable technology that has been in use to treat eye diseases since 1983. People who have wet and dry forms of macular degeneration have responded well to the treatments. In fact, 80 percent of patients treated with microcurrent stimulation have shown significant improvements in their vision in several studies.
Although microcurrent stimulation may be the best treatment for your eye condition, you may know little about it, due to a lack of information from your physician. This highly effective treatment, which is both affordable and currently available, involves no pain or patient discomfort and can sometimes be performed at home.
Research has also confirmed the effects of a wide range of supplements and foods that appear to slow the progress of eye diseases. Thus, microcurrent stimulation is often used in conjunction with nutritional supplementation. During their course of treatment, patients are often provided with vitamins and other supplements to ensure that their nutritional intake is optimized for recovery from their degenerative eye disease. Still, it is important to pair the nutrient therapy with the microcurrent stimulation, since dietary changes alone have not been shown to cause any substantial improvements in eyesight.
Acupuncture and Acupressure
Techniques from Oriental Medicine, including acupuncture and acupressure have been used for centuries to treat eye disease. We use an extensive program of acupressure in our treatment protocol. Acupressure can be done by the client, at home, and allows frequent treatments, at minimal cost. In our experience, acupressure done regularly brings results as good as those that are seen with needle acupuncture.
