Many serious eye diseases result from organs being restricted in their optimal function. These dysfunctions subsequently lead to deposits of metabolic products in various parts of the eye. For example, almost everyone knows today that the eyes turn yellow when the liver is inflamed. This particular example shows that there must be a direct connection between the organ liver and the eye.

The connection of the internal organs with the development of eye diseases is particularly emphasised in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine). Here it is pointed out that, for example, wet Macular Degeneration (AMD) can develop on the basis of a weakness of the spleen and kidneys. From the point of view of TCM, the dry form of Macular Degeneration (AMD) can flourish on the basis of a functional disorder of the organs liver and spleen.

Affected eye diseases include:

  • Dry Macular Degeneration (AMD)
  • Wet Macular Degeneration (AMD)
  • Glaucoma
  • Retinal Degeneration
  • Cataract
  • Presbyopia

This is one of the reasons why I want to encourage people to lead a healthy lifestyle. A healthy lifestyle also requires a healthy diet. What we eat reaches the inside of our cells and influences cell functions. Unhealthy food therefore has an unhealthy effect on cell functions and damages the body over the years..

What you can do to improve your nutrition for Macular Degeneration (AMD)

Basically, a conscious approach to meat and dairy products. Drink enough throughout the day, because older people tend to reduce their fluid intake because they do not feel thirsty. This is fatal because the eyes are a gelatinous organ that needs to be kept moist.

Bioavailability instead of food supplements

Eyes also love colourful fruits and vegetables. Many macular patients try to protect the light-sensing cells of the macula by taking food supplements.

To ensure that the supplements are better absorbed by the body, dietary supplements containing naturally produced vitamins are recommended. However, freshly produced juices have the best bioavailability.

The recipe for macula juice

  • 1Kg carrots
  • one large beetroot (fresh)
  • one orange
  • one apple
  • a small piece of ginger
  • one tablespoon of high-quality oil

Put all the ingredients into a juicer. Drink 250ml of the juice every day. Store the remaining juice in the refrigerator. The amount is enough for about 3 days. The magic formula in nutrition is: eat natural.
