Glaucoma can be prevented? It sure can! Here are a six steps to prevent glaucoma naturally.
Step 1: Exercise To Prevent Glaucoma Naturally
Number one to prevent glaucoma naturally is to adopt a regular exercise program. I can hear you now, “What is exercise going to do for my eyes?”.
For one thing, it keeps our weight down and increases the blood flow to our major organs. Your eyes are one of your major organs. Increased weight means increased disease risk and poor blood flow cause hardening of the arteries. Of course there are veins and arteries in and near the eyes.
Step 2: Prevent Glaucoma Naturally By Eating Healthy
Number two to prevent glaucoma naturally is good nutrition. Now you’re saying, “Oh, here we go, another diet.”.
No, not another diet, just good eating habits. If you knew that eating junk food would cause you to go blind, and eating fruits, vegetables, good quality proteins and healthy oils would save your eyesight, which would you choose? Not such a hard choice anymore, is it?
Step 3: Prevent Glaucoma Naturally & Quit Smoking
Number three to prevent glaucoma naturally is to avoid smoking and secondhand cigarette smoke. If you’re a smoker, you already know what you do to yourself. You’ve heard all the lectures on what cigarettes do to your body, so I won’t give you a lecture.
Yes, I used to smoke and my husband used to smoke 3 packs a day from age 12, so you CAN stop. So I do know what I’m talking about.
I am going to tell you that cigarette smoking and secondhand smoke damages your eyesight as fast as any other part of your body. So you can lose your eyesight due to glaucoma caused by smoking.
Step 4: Prevent Glaucoma Naturally - Detox
Number four to prevent glaucoma naturally is keeping allergies under control. Allergies can cause us to rub or itch our eyes sometimes to the point of corneal injury. We’ve stated previously in another article that old eye injuries can cause us to be susceptible to glaucoma.
Instead, go on a cleanse. Alkalize your body, and get rid of the toxicity that is causing your allergies in the first place. You can also do a food allergy test, so you find out what foods are causing your sensitivities. Then eliminate them from your diet.
Step 5: Prevent Diabetes & Prevent Glaucoma Naturally
Number five is preventing or keeping diabetes under control. Diabetes is the number one contributor to eye disease. Preventing it by eating a proper diet without a lot of sugar is the preferred way to deal with it.
If you can’t prevent it, then keeping it under strict control is the next best option. Diet and exercise go a long way in achieving this goal. I don’t mean to sound like a diet and exercise guru, but I can’t stress enough, how important they both are in maintaining good eye health and glaucoma prevention.
Also, once again, go on a cleanse! How about a cleansing trip to Thailand? It’d definitely benefit your health, keep diabetes at bay, and sure prevent glaucoma naturally!
Step 6: Prevent Glaucoma Naturally – Check Your Eyes
Number six to prevent glaucoma naturally is having regular eye checkups, if you are a risk case for glaucoma. Every one to two years is good and will help guard against developing glaucoma. Some of the risk factors requiring regular checkups are; age 65 or older, family history of glaucoma, are of black or Asian ancestry, have diabetes, have a chronic inflammatory disease, have had any serious eye injury or are taking steroids. A little knowledge goes a long way toward preventing glaucoma.
