Cataracts are common occurrences among aging humans and often their pets. They can occur among younger humans also. The symptoms are cloudy vision, extreme glare sensitivity, with a sense of trying to see in heavy fog under certain lighting conditions. This occurs after proteins interlock to form a glaze over the eye lens.
The idea that one can reverse aging, especially in eye diseases like cataracts, is usually looked upon as an unrealistic expectation. And yet research increasingly reveals that dietary interventions can lead to remarkable improvements.
Aloe gel, for instance, was recently found to significantly improve visible signs of skin aging. Who, after all, would not like to age slower and/or reverse the process when unnecessarily accelerated? And especially when loss of vision and/or potential blindness are at stake.
Watchful waiting, some vague nutritional recommendations, increased use of sunglasses, and, of course, surgical intervention, are still the standard of care from the conventional medical viewpoint. With half of all Americans in their mid-80s suffering from them, cataracts are generally considered a natural — and inevitable — part of the aging process. But there is a reason why not everyone in their 80s (i.e. the other 50%) gets them, and it likely …
Old dogs were orally treated for a month and the lens opacity analysed before and after the treatment. Results showed a reduction from 25 to 40% of lens opacity. The efficacy of wheat sprouts in the recovery of age-related alterations and in treating age-associated pathologies could be due to the contemporary presence of small regulatory acid peptides, a remarkable level of highly energetic phosphoric radicals and antioxidant molecules, peculiarities that may be, to some extent, related to the aging process regulation.
Wheat grass, of course, is likely not the only sprouted cereal seed capable of providing these uniquely beneficial properties. And green foods, such as green leafy vegetables from non-cereal plants, are also of great value. It is also important to point out that not everyone will do well with the wheat lectin (aka wheat germ agglutinin (WGA)) that is found in wheat sprouts, as it may contribute to osteoarthritis, for example. But the key point here is that a simple nutritional change — adding something living and green to the diet– may make a world of difference in age-associated degenerative eye conditions, and is at least worth trying before more invasive, expensive and dangerous approaches are utilized.
Avoid processed unsaturated trans-fatty acid hydrogenated oils. Consume only good wholesome unsaturated or saturated fats. Disregard the cholesterol propaganda.
