(Greensboro, North Carolina)
Want to cure those awful eye floaters completely and for good as well as maintain healthy vision? Here's 8 home remedy treatments you definitely must consider...
Hello folks. Do you have any cures (natural of course) for eye floaters? I've only just started getting them for some reason, along with a slight amount of dulled vision, and want them gone as soon as possible. I'm already half deaf and would not be able to cope with losing my vision as well. Thank you for your help.
Eye floaters are small specs that "float" around the eyes when you roll or move them. They come between your line of vision, causing your eye sight to become impaired - quite significantly in some cases. Other eye problems such as macular degeneration, and even cataracts and glaucoma, can also accompany eye floaters. Thankfully, getting rid of eye floaters quickly (and for good) is actually quite easy to do when using specific natural remedies and home treatments.
Here's 8 of the best that you might like to consider...
How to Get Rid of Eye Floaters Remedy #1... Organic Chlorella: Chlorella is a nutritional marvel that's incredibly rich in the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin, both of which contain powerful antioxidants that are essential for the health of the eyes. Chlorella also contains high amounts of beta carotene, vitamin C, magnesium, vitamin D and boron (see next remedy) which are all crucial for eye health as well. In addition to this, chlorella is a strong liver cleanser and detoxifier. According to ancient Ayurvedic medicine, a poor functioning liver is one of the main causes of eye floaters, along with other eye problems such as macular degeneration, cataracts and glaucoma. Most people with eye floaters report that their symptoms disappear completely within 4-6 weeks of consuming organic chlorella and never return as long as they continue to take it every day.
Make sure the chlorella you buy is organically grown and preferably cracked/broken cell wall (it will have this on the side of the container). You can buy it in either powdered or tablet form. For dosage recommendations, follow the advice listed on the container. Be sure to take your chlorella on an empty stomach, preferably 15-20 minutes before food for maximum effect (the enzymes in the chlorella will also help with the digestion of your meal). If you're interested, here's some of the best chlorella supplements on the market... Organic Chlorella Powders & Capsules
How to Cure Eye Floaters Remedy #2... Magnesium, Vitamin D & Boron: Another major cause of eye floaters is thought to be the result of a build up of (unused) calcium in the soft tissues, particularly in the eyes. Supplementing with magnesium, vitamin D and the crucial trace mineral boron gets this calcium moving, which in turn helps to treat and cure eye floaters. In addition to this, these essential nutrients also help with joint and muscle pain and cardiovascular health. Try and get an "all in one" supplement that contains all three nutrients if you can, but is low in calcium. For dosage recommendations, follow the directions listed on the bottle.
Home Remedy for Eye Floaters #3... Taurine: This important amino acid is yet another vital nutrient for eye health. In fact, many sufferers of eye floaters swear by taurine for getting rid of their floaters fast - usually within a few days. The recommended dose is around 1000 mg's a day. You can easily buy taurine
in supplement form online or from your local health food store.
Note: Taurine is added to most "energy drinks", however, these are not a healthy source. Energy drinks are extremely bad for you and should be avoided at all costs! Get your daily supply of taurine from a reputable supplement, along with consuming your chlorella. Chlorella contains the amino acids cysteine and methionine, both of which the body uses to make taurine.
Natural Treatment for Eye Floaters #4... Comfrey Tea: This herb is rich in lutein and contains potent antioxidants that are known to dissolve eye floaters. You can easily grow comfrey in your garden or buy it in tea or loose leaf form. Make a delicious sweet tea by combining the comfrey with a teaspoon of natural honey. Drink this beverage two to three times daily. You can also steep some comfrey in a cup, and once cooled, apply to your eyes using an eye dropper. It works a treat for dissolving eye floaters.
Natural Remedy for Removing Eye Floaters #5... Castor Oil: Castor oil is one of the recommended Ayurvedic treatments for reversing cataracts
. And it doesn't just work like a charm for these, it also works exceptionally well for eye floaters. Castor oil contains the antioxidants and essential nutrients needed for eye health. The only down side of using castor oil is the blurriness that occurs when you first place the drops in your eyes. This can be easily overcome, however, by applying the castor oil before you go to sleep at night. It will be well worth the effort and slight inconvenience though as when you wake in the morning you'll find yourself seeing clearer than you have in quite a while!
When it comes to using the castor oil, ONLY purchase high quality organic hexane free castor oil... Premium Quality Organic Cold Pressed Castor Oil
. Do not go with the cheaper brands and never buy castor oils that are in see through bottles (they must be dark to keep out light). Place one to two drops of the oil in each eye before bed using an eye dropper. Gently wipe off any excess with a tissue.
How to Get Rid of Eye Floaters Remedy #6... Milk Thistle: Because a poor functioning liver is one of the main causes of eye problems, including eye floaters, getting your liver healthy and in tip top condition is vital not only for the removal of eye floaters, but also for keeping them away permanently and for the continued maintenance of healthy vision. The milk thistle herb is a potent liver cleanser and liver tonic. Once you get your liver healthy, you'll notice many of your other health problems/ailments disappearing as well since the liver is the body's main filtering organ and controls the absorption of all nutrients. Take between 250 and 500mg's of milk thistle extract
daily for best results.
How to Cure Eye Floaters Remedy #7... Astaxanthin: Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory for the eyes that is even more potent than both lutein and zeaxanthin. Astaxanthin is one of the few nutrients that is able to cross the blood-retinal barrier, so it delivers the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant protection you need straight to your eyes. Astaxanthin helps tremendously with virtually any eye-related problems including eye floaters, cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal arterial collusion, and inflammatory eye diseases. Wild caught Alaskan salmon and krill oil are both good sources of astaxanthin, however, to get the amount you need for eye health and for curing eye floaters, a concentrated supplement will be needed (such as these
). Take 8 to 12mg's of astaxanthin daily straight after a meal. Allow at least 3-4 weeks for the full effects and benefits of astaxanthin to kick in.
Home Remedy for Eye Floaters #8... Diet - Crucial Eye Health Foods & the Ones You Need to Avoid: Certain foods help tremendously with eye floaters and eye health, while others definitely make your eyes and eye floaters worse. The main foods to avoid are the man-made disaster foods (refined and processed foods, trans fatty oils, fructose, etc). Any food that has been tampered with my man and is no longer in its natural state should be avoided. The excitotoxin, MSG, degrades taurine in the body at a rapid rate so this additive definitely needs to be avoided. Coffee, black tea and alcohol should also be eliminated as these exacerbate the growth of eye floaters and are detrimental to the health of the eyes. Green tea, however, is extremely good for you and good for your eyes due to the rich amounts of antioxidants (polyphenols) it contains so make sure you drink this beverage as much as you can.
Beets and carrots (whole and their juices), along with green leafy vegetables and orange peppers are rich in lutein, zeaxanthin, beta carotene and vitamin C so be sure to consume these foods in abundance (add to salads, soups, frittatas, smoothies, etc). Organic eggs and fish (wild-caught salmon) also contain good amounts of lutein, zeaxanthin and taurine so eat these in reasonable amounts as well. Finally, blackcurrants are rich in anthocyanins - potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant nutrients that are essential for eye health - so try and snack on these whenever possible.
So hopefully these tips and remedies help you out Bernie. For best results, be sure to pick two or three of the recommendations listed above (apart from #8 which is mandatory) and use them in combination with each other. You may also need to experiment with each one - what works for one person doesn't always necessarily work for another.
Good luck and all the best to you!
