People find the Better Eye Health Program because they are losing their vision and they’ve been told that they have some sort of degenerative disease that is challenging critical tissues in their eyes. Most of the work in the United States that has tried to integrate therapies that actually support regeneration in the eye has focused mostly on degenerative diseases in the retina like Macular Degeneration, Retinitis Pigmentosa, Stargardt and diabetic retinopathy.
There is a whole other body of work, mostly in Russia (formerly the Soviet Union) that has used very similar integrative therapies to try and promote healing in optic nerve disease. The good news is that these therapies have proven very useful in healing problems with the optic nerve. Damage to the optic nerve can occur due to trauma, glaucoma, problems with blood flow or venous drainage and many other less common conditions.
On this page you will find links to some articles we have written that describe and include scholarly papers that document the success of these therapies. The therapies include microcurrent stimulation, using devices very similar to the MicroStim unit used in this country. One of the articles includes a translation of a review article from a Soviet researcher published prior to the fall of the Soviet Union. This article was made available to us by a Russian Doctor who had emigrated from Russia after the fall of the Soviet Union. The other articles on this page are much more modern and are published in journals from the United States, written by Russian and European authors. All of the studies show the successes that are possible with the use of electrical stimulation therapies.
In her work, Grace Halloran, PhD did show significant success treating people with glaucoma. In the treatment of optic nerve disease it is the same as in dealing with the challenges of retinal diseases, in that an integrative approach using nutrition, Eastern medicine, specialized exercises and color therapy brings better results than the use of electrical stimulation therapies alone.
