Aloe Vera And Eye Problems
This page is one of Your Questions Answered pages. ( Greek Version )
- Good day. How can I use Aloe Vera to treat my brother's eye problems? He always complains of seeing like smoke. Thanks!
Hello Ibrahim, thank you for the question. I'll try to answer it, hoping that I'll give a nice chance to all the readers of this page to find answers to similar problems.
At first, my advice is that your brother should be examined by an Ophthalmologist (Ophthalmologists are physicians who diagnose and treat diseases that affect the eyes) the sooner the better! Indeed Aloe Vera can help and benefit our health, but at least we must first know exactly our health's condition.
General, most of the times an eye problem is part of an overall health problem. In the other hand, the lack of certain vitamins and other nutrients from the food we eat, which are essential for our body's nutrition, is the common root of the most health problems.
So, enhancing our nutrition with natural supplements like Aloe Vera drink and bee caps that are full of vitamins, minerals, aminoacids, antioxidants and other healthful elements, is a natural way to prevent the expand of a health problem because our body's immune system has been reinforced and is ready to face it. From my research I found that there are several reasons for someone to complain of seeing like smoke.
Cataracts is a reason for blurred vision or decreased vision. The lens of our eye in normal condition is clear. If the lens becomes cloudy, this condition is known as cataracts. It is like seeing behind a waterfall -- cataract is the Greek word for the waterfall -- and thus the name.
Cataracts develops faster if there are some environmental factors, such as extensive exposure to excessive ultraviolet light or sunlight, other toxic substances, smoking areas, automobile exhaust etc. that cause oxidation. Oxidation is the major reason of why the lens of our eye becomes cloudy.
Diabetes is a condition that affects many organs in our body and can cause blurred vision. Diabetic retinopathy is a damage to the eye's retina that occurs with long-term diabetes and is caused by damage to blood vessels of the retina. Retina is the layer of
tissue at the back of the inner eye. It changes light and images that enter the eye into nerve signals that are sent to the brain.
Retinal detachment is another reason for blurred vision or decreased vision. Often occurs on its own without an underlying cause. However, it may also be caused by trauma, diabetes, an inflammatory disorder, etc. It is most often caused by a related condition called posterior vitreous detachment.
Retina is a transparent tissue in the back of the eye. It helps us see the images that are focused on it by the cornea and the lens. Retinal detachments are often associated with a tear or hole in the retina through which eye fluids may leak. This causes separation of the retina from the underlying tissues.
Retina is normally red due to its rich blood supply. An ophthalmoscope allows a health care provider to see through our lens to the retina. If the provider sees changes in the color or appearance of the retina, this may indicate a disease. That means that the more blood goes to the retina the better. Eye injuries is also a reason for blurred vision.
Consider of taking Vitamin A, (Beta-Carotene), C and B2 (Riboflavin). The principal antioxidants in the lens of the eye are Vitamin C and E. Both are needed to activate glutathione. (Glutathione is a protein fragment which protects the eye from damage produced by free radicals.) It has been found that the absence of these vitamins encourages the growth of cataracts.
We can supply our body with all these vitamins in a natural way, adopting Aloe Vera Gel drink in our daily routine. Another nutritional supplement specially for our vision is the Forever Vision from Forever Living Products.
