Homeopathic Treatment of Glaucoma

Homeopathic Treatment of Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a serious disease affecting the optic nerve. Over time, the fluid in the eye begins to flow too slowly or stops flowing completely, the pressure inside the eye grows and blood vessels that feed the retina and optic nerve are damaged, causing vision loss and blindness. Higher risk groups include those over 65 and people with Diabetes. It is often not discovered until the condition is fully progressed as there are no early symptoms or effects on vision. There are many possible causes for Glaucoma, but there is some evidence that stress, poor nutrition and a collagen deficiency can be factors.

Homeopathic Remedies

Proponents of homeopathic medicine believe that symptoms represent the body’s attack against disease, and that substances which induce the symptoms of a particular disease or diseases can help the body ward off illness.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not tested homeopathic remedies for safety or effectiveness. There is no guarantee that they contain consistent ingredients, or that dosage recommendations are accurate. It would be a mistake to use homeopathic remedies and dismiss valid therapies, delaying proven treatment for serious conditions.
