My mum has had glaucoma for 35 years and it has recently spiralled out of control, she is now allergic to all the drops that control eye pressure and has had as many operations as possible to keep her pressures down, she has recently had cataracts operated on and is having to use drops that make her feel awful and blur what vision she has left...I havve been trying to suggest that maybe a change in diet to a higher raw content as it might help her body to control her eye pressure, but she seems completely immovable and expects to go blind... (genetic predisposition etc etc - it does seem to run in the family...)
Does anyone out there know of anyone who has helped their glaucoma through a raw diet...she will never believe me, but I'm hoping that hearing it from other people will help to convince her to give it a try... she currently has a very large percentage of meat in her diet and she thinks it is good because it is organic.
Any help will be much appreciated.
