Welcome to this space, today we will talk about Cataracts, a problem that often causes great difficulty in being able to fend for yourself. We are going to discuss the causes and symptoms caused by this disorder, to find a way to treat it with natural medicine.
A CATARACT occurs when the crystalline lens becomes opaque or cloudy, affecting vision. The crystalline lens is the clear part of the eye that helps focus light. In a normal eye, light passes through the lens to the retina. This lens has to be transparent in order to receive an image clearly; if the crystalline lens is clouded by a cataract, the image we perceive will be blurred.
This type of problem is related to aging and is very common in the elderly, the cataract can occur in one or both eyes, but it is worth mentioning that it is not transmitted from one eye to the other.
Our crystalline lens is made up mostly of water and proteins, the proteins are distributed in such a way that they allow this lens to remain transparent and light can pass through it; With age, some of the proteins accumulate and begin to cloud a small part of this lens, forming a cataract. Over time, this cataract can grow in size and cloud a part of our eye, causing difficulty in seeing normally.
Recommendation number one, Melipona Honey drops, this type of honey is produced by a species of stingless bee called Meliponas; It is said that since ancient times the Mayans have used Melipona Honey to treat eye conditions, today various studies have shown that this type of honey has properties to combat bacteria that cause eye diseases, in addition to acting as a powerful healing agent.
Melipona Honey differs from common bee honey both in flavor and in its consistency, because it is generally more acidic and fluid, but it is also distinguished in terms of therapeutic uses. These drops are a fundamental ally for the optical system; acts as an adjuvant against eye irritation, also useful as an aid in suffering from incipient cataracts or opacities in the cornea. The benefits of this type of honey are present in the treatment of these eye conditions.
Its use is recommended as a natural treatment to treat infectious or traumatic conjunctivitis, even to treat wounds or eye ulcers. For these treatments, Melipona Honey drops are used, placing a drop in each eye, morning and night. It should be noted that at first the falls are very small and practically do not affect vision, it only looks a little blurry, as if we were looking through glass.
When a Cataract has manifested the light of the sun or a lamp can seem excessively bright or dazzling, you will also notice that when driving at night the lights of the cars in front dazzle you more than before, on the other hand, the colors lose their brilliance.
Recommendation number two Yellow clover (Melilotus indica), this plant is indicated to treat eye conditions, it is usually applied in the form of an infusion or through fomentations, and it is used to combat conjunctivitis, pain, and redness of the eyes or when there is a constant tearing and other inflammatory conditions of the eyes, for example, it is used to prevent inflammation of the eyelids, it quickly lowers eye pressure, it can prevent retinal detachment, it also acts against glaucoma, in general, Yellow Clover washes and refreshes the eyes, for this reason, it is used to clean the crystalline lens when it looks cloudy or when it has fleshiness and hinders vision, it is suggested to use this plant, it reduces the symptoms of cataracts, benefiting the microcirculation of the capillaries.
An alarming statistic indicates that people who smoke have a 40% greater chance of contracting Cataracts, smoke can cause itching, irritation, and even infections that lead to conjunctivitis, small ulcers, or corneal lesions, in addition, this substance releases toxic chemical elements stimulating the appearance of pathologies such as cataracts or macular degeneration, one of the main causes of blindness in the world.
Recommendation number three Lutein capsules also called carotenoid vitamin, this is related to beta-carotene and vitamin A, it is important to obtain it through food or a good supplement since our body cannot produce Lutein.
In our retina there are large concentrations of Lutein to act as light protective filters, thus avoiding a possible development of macular degeneration and future cataract problems.
Many therapists consider Lutein as the eye vitamin because it is a nutritional supplement that keeps our eyes healthy, it contains a rich amount of antioxidants that protect us against free radicals. The daily intake of Lutein can protect our eyesight against degenerative eye diseases.
In addition, the consumption of a capsule three times a day of omega 3, flaxseed oil, and chia oil together, reduce the risk of cataracts by up to 20%.
So now you know, if you suffer from eye problems, have difficulty seeing from a distance, are too bothered by light, or have blurry or opaque vision, the recommendations are drops of Melipona Honey, yellow Clover in the form of tea, and Lutein capsules; all very beneficial for those people who suffer from this type of problem. Food supplements and medicinal plants will always be of great support to treat this type of situation, which, to tell the truth, may be closer than far from us.
