There are a lot of mechanism that maintains the internal pressure of the eye. In the case of glaucoma, the aqueous humor or the thin, watery fluid that should be constantly pumped in and drained out, has been clogged.
Like a flood that is pressing pressure on the water dike, the fluid that is build up inside the eye destroys the part of the optic nerve, damaging the vision.
It really sounds scary and a simple glaucoma can lead to total vision loss if not treated earlier. Immediate treatment will be eye drops to reduce the pressure and if not cured, will lead to surgery as the last resort.
There are also alternative remedies to help lower the pressure in the most common form of glaucoma. To help you reduce reliance on medication.
The anti oxidant called alpha lipoic acid can help lower the intraocular pressure and help improve the vision. It’s recommended to take at least 150 mg a day. But must also be in combination with other nutrients like Magnesium and Vitamin C.
Surprisingly, the eyes’ drainage system may also be inflamed like an arthritic joint, so the popular omega 3 in fish oil is hereby recommended to decrease this intraocular inflammation therefore relieving the eye pressure.
Vitamin B12 has also been recognized to improve eyesight or prevent glaucoma from worsening. There is a sublingual spray of Vitamin B12 form that’s available in health shops for faster absorption. Again, stress has been attributed to glaucoma as one of its contributing factor.
Did you know that alternative medicine practice would also recommend meditation as part of the treatment for glaucoma?
Practice the breath focused medication by breathing normally and focusing your attention on the movement of air in and out of your nostrils, with the eyes closed.
Just notice the in and out of the airflow and do this for 5 to 20 minutes twice a day. This will surely help lower the pressure in your eyes as well as the mounting pressure in your head caused by stress in your whole body.
