Natures Medicines And Remedies

When one looks at the benefits of preventive nutrition, we find that if we get nutrition that our bodies need, it could and probably would prevent a disease from developing in the body. I have Macular Degeneration, due to my age and also my diabetes. Supplements like fish oil omega-3 fatty acids and flaxseed, lutein, lecithin and kale, spinach, any green leafy vegetable can stop or at least slow down the disease. I am opting for these to stop it. If possible.

In For A Penny And Forget the Pound

I would rather spend a few pennies than several hundred on a condition that could have been prevented by paying for a low costing herb or supplement that could prevent this particular eye disease called AMD. Macular Degeneration causes deterioration of muscles in the eye. Not as bad as glaucoma.

Getting Nutrients From Herbs

There are many herbs out in the world and we can benefit from these supplements to our diet. Take echinacea and goldenseal, which expedites a cold, prevents deficiencies in vitamin C. Omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil and flaxseed are supplements that help your eyes. Taking a vitamin supplement for people over 50 will also help get trace elements that your eyes need. Lutein, Lecithin, Zeaxanthin are the ones most mentioned in the searches I have done on the internet.


Spices are concentrated sources of supplements we need. Take paprika, for example, it gives us in one teaspoon what we need to make serotonin which makes melatonin. I use spices in all my food if possible. Sage helps with hot flashes and is a benefit to help cleanse the body of toxins. It has many different uses for health and healing plus it is rich in antioxidants. It is this writers opinion that all herbs were made to help mankind in some way. Even Christ Jesus mention mustard as the most powerful herb known to man at the time of his day.


I believe these natural herbs will help in my battle against macular degeneration. Or for any other physical problem i have. Oh antibiotics will help with infections ( I know one time I had a to take antibiotics so long for a respiratory infection that it turned my teeth yellow. That's why I don't go out to very many places. Diabetics have a terrible time with illnesses.
I have had an implant in my left eye, lasik surgery on my left then right eye. I go back to have more lasik done on my left eye. Then my doctor said we will be getting down to heavy laser surgery for the fatty tissues in my eyes. I pray that my God will help me through this rough time.
