Obtain adequate rest, improve the diet, and take large doses of vitamin C (2,000 mg, 3

times a day).
Apply warm yellow dock tea, in a poultice, to the eyelid. You can also drink it.
ENCOURAGEMENTEvery day learn something new from the Scriptures. Search them as for hid
treasures, for they contain the words of eternal life.

MUCOUS IN EYE

SYMPTOMSThe eye seems be filled with mucous.


CAUSESThe cause may be a combination of an inadequate diet, poor working conditions, and an
airborne infection.
TREATMENT
Improve the diet, and take a vitamin/mineral supplement twice a day. Obtain adequate
rest. Work in a clear environment that is not overly dusty.
Wash each eye with goldenseal root tea. But do not use goldenseal in large amounts if
pregnant.
ENCOURAGEMENTHe who receives Christ by living faith has a living connection with God. He
carries with him the atmosphere of heaven, which is the grace of God and a treasure that the world
cannot buy.

CATARACTS

SYMPTOMSThe lens of the eye becomes clouded, so that the eye is unable to properly focus on
objects. In advanced cases, the lens is becoming opaque, so that blindness is setting in. Only part of the
eye is generally cloudy or opaque, but this can gradually extend to the entire eye.

CAUSESThe most common cause is senility.


Congenital cataracts occur if the mother had rubella during the first three months of pregnancy, or if the
infant has galactosemia (inherited inability to digest galactose [a type of milk sugar, resulting from
lactose] properly). These cataracts generally do not get worse. Not using milk products at all can help
prevent this in adults.
Traumatic cataracts result from blows which rupture the anterior lens capsule, harmful chemicals,
intense infrared radiation, or X rays. Radiation causes free radical damage in the eyes. This causes the
lens to absorb aqueous humor. The lens becomes cloudy and must be removed, to restore eyesight.
People living closer to the South Pole (which has part of its ozone layer stripped away) are more likely
to develop cataracts.
Other causes include hypoparathyroidism, Down's syndrome, and atopic dermatitis. The longer one has
diabetes, the greater the risk of cataracts.
Hair dye has been shown to cause cataracts. Only 23% of those not dying their hair get cataracts;
whereas 89% of those who dye their hair develop them.
Complications of tumors, detached retina, iritis, glaucoma, and severe myopia can also bring it on.
Other studies reveal that people with stress, allergies, or who eat seafood (thus ingesting methylmercury)
are more likely to develop cataracts.
It is now known that a reduction in vitamin C or B2 in the diet can help produce cataracts. High blood
sugar levels and low calcium levels can also bring it on.
TREATMENT
Cataracts are the most common form of blindness in older people, and should not be
ignored when beginning to develop.
Obtain adequate rest at night. Do not sit up watching television till late at night! You are
tiring your eyes and irradiating them with X rays at the same time.
Maintain a good nutritious diet! Do not drink milk or eat cheese, ice cream, seafood, or
grease. Get enough vitamins E, C, B complex (B2 is very important!), selenium, zinc,
bioflavonoids, 1-glutamine, 1-arginine, 1-cysteine, and glutathione. If diabetes is
involved, add chromium supplementation. Avoid excess cholesterol, sorbitol (artificial
sweetener), unsaturated fatty acids, and mercury tooth fillings (amalgam).
