Microacupuncture for Improving Vision

  Treating Degenerative Eye Diseases with Microacupuncture Microacupuncture is one of the strongest methods for treating degenerative eye diseases. Traditional acupuncture, while important in helping slow the progression of vision loss, is just not strong enough or deep enough to reverse vision loss. Microacupuncture can help the eye heal quickly so that there can be a reversal of the vision loss over a fairly short period of time. Unlike traditional acupuncture therapies, microacupuncture is more effective if performed multiple times a day. We refer to this as “stacking” the treatments. Treatments are stacked one upon the other for a powerful effect. This treatment modality is used for a variety of medical conditions, but is most notably used for people suffering from macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa, Stargardt’s Rod/Cone dystrophy, glaucoma, diabetic neuropathy, as well as other degenerative diseases of the eyes. I also use this modality to treat peripheral neuropathy, Raynaud’s syndrome, and other diseases of circulation, and see promising results when treating patients with elevated liver enzymes, and problems relating to the brain – since the eyes are part of the brain, anything that helps the eyes will also help the brain. Microacupuncture was developed in Denmark by Freddy Dahlgren Read More »

Avoiding the sun “at all costs” is costing us much, and our eyes are suffering due to our obsessive avoidance of the sun’s rays. Of course, you don’t want to burn up, just allow yourself to get 20 minutes or so a day. The sun provides the energy necessary to sustain all life on this planet. In the years since the sun became “bad” for us, we have seen a dramatic increase in many diseases – conditions related to vitamin deficiency; cancer, heart disease, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, autism, allergies, diabetes, ADHD, skin cancer, AMD and Retinitis Pigmentosa. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is characterized by high levels of amyloid beta accumulation in the retina.  Amyloid beta is the protein that accumulates in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients and the eyes of AMD sufferers, causing plaque buildup and destruction of nerve cells as well as causing deposits in blood vessels, contributing to heart disease. Vitamin D supplementation can significantly improve accumulation of these plaques as well as reduce retinal macrophage numbers, the immune Read More »
