REVERSE Vision Loss in 6 Easy Steps

These are supposed to be your “golden years.”

But let’s be honest… getting older comes with its share of hassles.

Losing your vision shouldn’t be one of them.

But if you’ve been diagnosed with macular degeneration, some doctor has probably told you it’s irreversible.

TOTAL NONSENSE.

Macular degeneration is a clear and obvious sign of a nutrient deficiency.

Fortunately, you can correct it… and save your eyesight… in six simple steps.

Macular degeneration robs millions of people of their eyesight every year (more than cataracts and glaucoma combined).

The central portion of your retina, known as the macula, is responsible for focusing vision in the eye, and it controls our ability to read, drive a car, recognize faces or colors, and see objects in fine detail.

Macular degeneration occurs when your macula deteriorates and you lose your ability to see. Your eyesight starts off as blurry, but gets worse over time.

But here’s the thing:

Macular degeneration is a sign of low antioxidant levels and low zinc.

Multiple studies have shown that you can prevent macular degeneration from advancing by ensuring you get enough of those nutrients.

Dr. Scott’s Vision Improvement Regimen:

  • Vitamin A: This vitamin is crucial for vision and eye health. It is an essential component of rhodopsin–a protein that absorbs light in the retina. It also is critical for the health of the cornea and conjunctival membranes.
  • Omega-3 Fatty Acids: DHA found in fish oil is an omega-3 fatty acid. The photoreceptors in the retina are made up of 50% DHA. Supplement with one to three grams of fish oil a day.
  • Berries: I’m a big fan of berries. They contain many powerful antioxidant compounds. Berries are high in essential vitamins and flavonoids that your eyes need. Studies have shown that blueberries may help with night vision, but so do bilberries and Maqui berries.
  • Lutein and Zeaxanthin: These carotenoids are found in colorful fruits and vegetables and help the macula determine color vision.
  • Balance Your Blood Sugar: Increases in blood sugar are part of the reason for the cloudiness developing. High blood sugar increases advance glycation end-products (a fancy word for misshapen proteins caused by sugar). If you have problems balancing blood sugar look to the herbal extract berberine and the mineral chromium.
  • Zinc: As I said, macular degeneration is often a sign of low zinc. Consider adding a supplement to your regimen.

Health and Happiness,
