Eye Health/Macular Degeneration
It is possible to restore lost vision, slow or stop the degeneration process.
Many patients see an improvement during the first two weeks. They report increased brightness, better acuity and a larger visual field.
While some do not respond to the treatment, others come in and do get good results.
AcuNova and MICRO 48 Acupuncture
The vision repair program is 12 treatments a week for two weeks. You receive 3 treatments a day with a small break between treatments Tuesday through Friday. I do an eye test before and after. For maintenance there is a general guideline of two to four times a year for the first year and once or twice a year there after depending on your condition.
In Chinese Medicine, we look at macular degeneration not as a disease but as a circulatory disorder. The environment behind the eye is unhealthy because of ocular waste called drusen. Research shows how acupuncture can significantly increase blood flow to the eyes and stimulate different neurologic areas of the brain that are involved in visual perception.
AcuNova and Micro 48 acupuncture points are in the hands and feet. Very fine needles are inserted in these points to help facilitate a healthy environment behind the eyes by increasing blood circulation, oxygen and nutrients.
The vision repair program may also help patients with stargardt’s, retinitis pigmentosa, macular pucker, dry eyes, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy.
It is important to know that this is not a cure, and results vary from person to person, but you can learn daily habits to keep your eyes healthy and slow the progression of your disease down. This includes good nutrition, exercises, protecting eyes from uv rays and artificial light, and taking out chemicals in your personal care and household products that are damaging to the eyes.
