Vision is the sense we tend to treasure the most, and one that often fails us as we grow older. Around the age of 40, as the lenses of the eyes begin to lose their elasticity, small print becomes harder to read, necessitating reading glasses for many. Once you reach your sixties, the likelihood of more serious ocular disorders—macular degeneration, cataracts, and retinopathy—increases.
Although cataracts can be managed with surgical interventions, macular degeneration and retinopathy are less responsive to conventional care. Some types of retinopathy and macular degeneration can be ameliorated by laser and other therapies, but most physicians consider these vision disorders to be unrelentingly progressive.
At the Whitaker Wellness Institute, we have been successfully treating macular degeneration, cataracts, and retinopathy with a variety of natural therapies for more than 30 years. Research shows that our eyes have a remarkable ability to heal—but only if they are given the proper conditions in which to do so. Here at the clinic, we offer an aggressive program of targeted intravenous and oral nutrients that not only help prevent further visual degeneration but in many cases actually improve vision.
