Prevent and Heal Cataracts, Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, and Other Common Eye Disorders

Publisher: Piccadilly Books, Ltd.
Losing your eyesight is a frightening thought. Yet, every five seconds someone in the world goes blind. Most causes of visual impairment are caused by age-related diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. Modern medicine has no cure for these conditions. Treatment usually involves managing the symptoms and attempting to slow the progression of the disease. In some cases surgery is an option, but there is always the danger of adverse side effects that can damage the eyes even further. Most chronic progressive eye disorders are considered incurable, hopeless. However, there is a successful treatment. It doesn’t involve surgery, drugs, or invasive medical procedures. All that is needed is a proper diet. The key to this diet is coconut, specifically coconut oil. The author used this method to cure is own glaucoma, something standard medical therapy is unable to do. The coconut based dietary program described in this book has the potential to help prevent and treat many common visual problems including the following: ● Cataracts ● Glaucoma ● Macular degeneration ● Diabetic retinopathy ● Dry eye syndrome ● Sjogren’s syndrome ● Optic neuritis ● Irritated eyes ● Conjunctivitis (pink eye) ● Stroke ● Eye disorders related to neurodegenerative disease (Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, MS) Most chronic eye disorders come without warning. No one can tell who will develop a visual handicap as they age. Everybody is at risk. Once the disease is present, treatment is a lifelong process. The best solution is prevention. In this book, you will learn the basic underlying causes for the most common degenerative eye disorders and what you can do to prevent, stop, and even reverse them.
How to Optimize the Ketogenic Diet and Avoid Common Mistakes

Keto cycling is the most powerful, most effective, and most efficient tool for overcoming chronic disease and restoring health. Keto cycling is a method of going in and out of ketosis—a metabolic state in which the body runs on fat. It is absolutely the easiest and most efficient method of losing excess body fat and achieving your optimal weight. Low-fat, calorie-restricted diets are gruelingly difficult because you feel continually hungry and deprived; the keto approach is comparatively easy. The food is delicious and your hunger is depressed, so you can eat to your satisfaction and still lose the weight without the pain. All of the common health markers that doctors measure when evaluating a patient’s health, such as blood pressure, blood sugar, triglycerides, HDL, and systemic inflammation, are improved when a person goes keto. It is like hitting the reset button on your computer—all of the garbage is deleted and you are returned to the original properly working starting position before the errors began to creep in. Health problems are wiped away and you get a fresh start. Hormones are rebalanced, proper digestion is restored, energy levels improve, and blood chemistry improves; you sleep better, think better, and function better. It is literally an anti-aging diet. All of these results have been documented in published medical and nutritional studies. Unfortunately, information about how to do the ketogenic diet is awash in myths, misinformation, and misconceptions that are perpetuated on the internet, in books, and in the news media. Many people are confused, and consequently, do not follow the diet properly, leading to unsatisfactory results. This book exposes common errors that can sabotage the ketogenic diet and reveals how you can greatly enhance the health-promoting effects of the diet through keto cycling.
The ketogenic diet is one that is very low in carbohydrate, high in fat, with moderate protein. This diet shifts the body into a natural, healthy metabolic state known as nutritional ketosis. In ketosis the body uses fat as its primary source of energy instead of glucose. Some of this fat is converted into an alternative form of fuel called ketones. Ketones are high-potency fuel that boost energy and cellular efficiency and activates special enzymes that regulate cell survival, repair, and growth. When a person is in nutritional ketosis, blood levels of ketones are elevated to therapeutic levels. In response, high blood pressure drops, cholesterol levels improve, inflammation is reduced, blood sugar levels normalize, and overall health improves. Low-fat diets have been heavily promoted for the past several decades as the answer to obesity and chronic disease. However, we are fatter and sicker now more than ever before. Obviously, the low-fat approach has not worked. Our bodies actually need fat for optimal health and function more efficiently using fat for fuel. In this book you will discover how people are successfully using the ketogenic diet to prevent and treat chronic and degenerative disease. Ketone therapy is backed by decades of medical and clinical research, and has proven to be both safe and effective for the treatment of variety of health issues, including the following: Alzheimer’s disease Parkinson’s disease stroke Multiple sclerosis heart disease cancer diabetes obesity metabolic syndrome Crohn’s disease ulcerative colitis irritable bowel syndrome glaucoma macular degeneration migraine headaches sleep disorders It doesn’t stop there. Research is continually discovering conditions that are responding to the ketogenic diet. Many health problems that medical science has deemed incurable or untreatable are being reversed. Medications that were once relied on daily are no longer necessary and are being tossed away. People are discovering that a simple, but revolutionary diet based on wholesome, natural foods and the most health-promoting fats is dramatically changing their lives. It could be the key to changing yours as well.
