Glaucoma When the visual field is no longer even
“I can only see partially sharp”, “In the dark I see colored rings around lights”, “Only my ophthalmologist diagnosed it”.
This is how people with glaucoma describe their symptoms. The insidious thing about it is that the field of vision narrows only very gradually over years, so that the brain gets used to it.
The cause can be an increased intraocular pressure or a sensitivity of the optic nerve with normal intraocular pressure. Only parts of the visual field can be seen sharply, others are blurred or fail completely.
And it does not matter whether the triggers are a disturbed outflow of the aqueous humor of the eye due to vascular neoplasms, connective tissue neoplasms, inflammations or the consequence of various diseases.
How does Vedic Medicine view glaucoma?
Glaucoma from an Ayurvedic point of view
According to the Maharishi Ayurveda approach, glaucoma starts with the loss of natural balance.
Due to our way of life, metabolic residues and toxins, called “ama” in Ayurveda, are constantly produced. In the case of glaucoma, they are usually deposited in the chamber angle of the eye over a period of years. This process can be reversed with the right methods as long as no late damage has occurred.
However, according to Ayurveda, no two patients are alike and so each case of glaucoma is slightly different. The Ayurvedic approach in our clinic is based on holism.
What can Ayurveda do for you?
In Vedic medicine, glaucoma is addressed by combining various treatments into a multi-faceted approach adapted to your individual situation, as determined in a comprehensive diagnosis by one of our physicians.
An integrated approach
Increasingly, patients are finding that conventional therapies alone are not enough.
They recognize that the path to recovery must take place at all levels. In glaucoma, the focus is on the elimination of toxins throughout the body and especially within the eye. It is important to bring the natural regulatory principles back into a necessary balance. Dietary recommendations, helpful exercises as well as special herbal mixtures – all put together especially for you – help with a more conscious lifestyle. So that your natural self-healing powers can effectively reduce the deposits in the chamber angle of the eye.
