The greatest threat to your vision comes from age-related macular degeneration (ARMD). Optic nerve damage from diabetes is not pretty, but not everyone suffers from diabetes. However, everyone gets old. Depending on your good nutritional intake and by contrast the amount of toxins stored up in your body, you may be likely to develop some degree of ARMD as you age. There in no medical cure for ARMD, it is progressive and almost always leads to loss of vision or complete blindness.
We now know that our eyes love nutrients from highly pigmented foods such as colorful fruits and vegetables. They contain all kinds of phytochemicals that both aid in detoxification as well as provide the nutrients that eyes need. Cruciferous vegetables, such as Brussels sprouts and kale contain large quantities of both these types of phytonutrients. They include flavonoids, lutein, sulfurophanes, zeaxanthin, and more.
These phytonutrients are naturally anti-cancer. As we discovered recently, Brussels sprouts and kale powder can detoxify and remove excess estrogen from the body. For women prone to breast cancer, or who have already had breast cancer, elimination of excess estrogen is critical-allowing for more than 500% reduction in breast cancer or cancer recurrence in women with the highest excess estrogen levels.
So if you are prone to breast cancer, or if you have had breast cancer, get your estrogen levels checked. You will greatly reduce your odds of developing breast cancer or suffering a recurrence.
Sluggish detoxification also affects your eyes. As your body gathers toxins, your eyes suffer. As your intake of the nutrients you eyes need decreases, your eyes suffer. And the combination of the two adds up to ARMD. However, cruciferous vegetable concentrate can both detoxify and supply nutrients to your eyes.
So, is there a phytonutrient cure for ARMD? No. But is there a treatment that holds promise, can stabilize vision in a great percentage of cases, and even improve vision in some? Yes. And that is remarkable given that the prognosis for ARMD with standard medical care holds little hope. So consider adding to your daily diet whole food supplements such as Malungay, Aesculus, and Cerebro PTC.
