Macular Degeneration

Restorative Health Clinic is proud to offer a program specially designed to:

  • Stop Macular Degeneration
  • Support healthy eye function
  • Improve vision 

Age Related Macular Degeneration causes gradual, progressive vision loss as we age, due to years of oxidative damage. With proper diagnosis and care, this process can be stopped and your vision maintained.

The Macular Degeneration Program provides an effective combination of potent antioxidants and nutrient support to decrease and protect against the oxidative damage. Our comprehensive approach will nourish and protect not just your eyes, but every tissue in your body.

What is Age-Related Macular Degeneration?
As we age, oxidative damage accumulates, breaking down the macula and blurring our eyesight. Located in the retina, the macula is responsible for clear, crisp central vision. This break down, known as Macular Degeneration (AMD), is the leading cause of vision loss in adults over fifty.

Eyes are especially vulnerable to oxidative damage as we age. This is because the retina consumes more oxygen than any other tissue in the body. Your eyes rely upon numerous vitamins, minerals and amino acids, including vitamin C, zinc and taurine to function optimally and prevent macular degeneration. Studies suggest that receiving high doses of these key nutrients can protect your vision and prevent the development of AMD.

Diagnosing AMD early can also alert your doctor that you may be at risk for other preventable diseases caused by oxidative damage, especially heart disease.

 Symptoms of AMD include:

  • Gradual loss of central vision
  • Distorted images, especially straight lines
  • Difficult reading or driving
  • Brighter light or magnification needed for reading small print
  • No change in peripheral vision

Risk factors for AMD include:

  • Aging & positive family history
  • Smoking
  • High blood pressure
  • Obesity
  • Elevated cholesterol
  • Oxidative stress caused by toxic metals (lead, mercury) & infections
  • (Epstein Barr Virus, Cytomegalo Virus, etc.) that cause inflammation in the eye.

Our Comprehensive Approach

Our program both nourishes and supports your cells, while neutralizing and removing those sources of oxidative stress which cause macular degeneration. We offer a combination of effective diagnostic testing, essential nutrients in therapeutic dosages, potent antioxidants and more. This systemic approach, which reduces oxidative stressors and helps to revitalize your tissues, distinguishes us from the average treatment program.

 

Clinical Exam & Diagnostic Tests Available to Assess Risk Factors for AMD:

  • Basic blood work, including cholesterol
  • Homocysteine for AMD & heart disease
  • Cardio-CRP for general inflammation and heart disease
  • Genetic analysis for methylation defect & detoxification pathways
  • Clinical assessment for signs of deficiencies, nutritional and hormonal
  • Clinical assessment for signs of cardiovascular disease and hypertension

IV Therapy specially Formulated for AMD:

  • Vital nutrients, including taurine, L-carnitine, selenium, chromium, zinc & vitamin C
  • IV Glutathione & IV DMSO to battle oxidation and inflammation
  • Major Auto-Hemotherapy to assist in healing and slow degeneration
  • Comprehensive Antioxidant Therapy:
  • Vitamins, minerals, botanicals,  and homeopathic therapies
  • Dietary counseling to decrease oxidative stress
