Vision Problems Success Stories

Vic Put the Brakes on Vision Loss

Vic and his wife came to the clinic from South Carolina. His vision was failing due to diabetic retinopathy with macular involvement. He was depressed because his vision was going rapidly, requiring five laser treatments within 18 months of his diagnosis. Out of desperation, he came to see if there was anything we could do for him. We treated him with an intensive diet and nutritional supplement regimen, along with intravenous (IV) drips of nutrients targeting the eyes.

In the nine years since Vic first came to the Whitaker Wellness Institute and began our program, his vision has held steady, requiring only five additional treatments. He credits this dramatic slowing in the progression of his disease to nutritional and IV therapies—and his ophthalmologist agrees.

Macular Degeneration Halted

Bill E. was diagnosed with macular degeneration at the age of 80. His ophthalmologist told him it was a progressive disease and there wasn’t much he could do. Bill wasn’t ready to accept this prognosis, so he came to my clinic. We started him on a comprehensive nutritional supplement regimen, and a series of intravenous (IV) treatments, including vitamins, minerals, DMSO, and taurine.

He noted improvement right away. Bill said the most noticeable thing was that he could read the fractions in the stock price quotes in the newspaper, which he couldn’t before. At his annual exam, his ophthalmologist was stunned to find that his visual acuity had actually improved! Bill continued to get monthly IV treatments and his vision remained stable.
