Vision loss, macular degeneration

Printed book now available worldwide from Amazon!

The print edition of BLIND FAITH about vision loss is available. It’s a story of what one man did to reverse AMD after all other VEGF treatments had failed. Both the Kindle version and Printed version can be purchased from Amazon worldwide.

Vision Loss Epidemic

To quote the Canadian Ophthalmological Society, “Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is one of the most common causes of poor vision after age 60. AMD is a deterioration or breakdown of the macula. The macula is a small area at the center of the retina in the back of the eye that allows us to see fine details clearly and perform activities such as reading and driving.”

The Details Are Sobering

According to Wikipedia, as of 2012 there were 285 million visually impaired people in the world, of which 246 million had low vision and 39 million were blind.

The Story Of How one Man Reversed Vision Loss

In November, 2011, during a regular appointment with my Ophthalmologist, I was diagnosed out of the blue with wet macular degeneration in one eye. This was a surprise to both of us. Three months later I was completely blind in that eye and it was starting in the other eye. On top of that I was told that there was no cure. The fact that I had the best Ophthalmologist in the province telling me there was no cure was almost more than I could deal with. But for some reason I slept well that night. The next day I knew I could not accept the prognosis of permanent vision loss without a fight. I could still see pretty well with the other eye so I began researching everything I could find on vision loss diseases. Nineteen months later I found what I believed was the answer. I discussed it with my Ophthalmologist and he agreed to stop the monthly VEGF injections so that I could begin my protocol. Eleven weeks later, after he had told me that there was no cure, he tested me at 20/80 vision, a gain of 35 letters. It didn’t stop there. A few months later he tested me at 20/40 vision, a gain of 50 letters. This compares to the best VEGF therapy results of 13.3 letters gained in 52 weeks.

How did I accomplish this? The answer proved to be simple. It was a natural, food-based protocol combined with specific supplements that were either lacking or missing in factory-farmed food I was eating. Instead of treating one disease, this protocol treated my whole body. This made it healthy enough that it was able to do what it’s designed to do, cure itself. This turned out to be a field of medicine I had not heard of before called “functional medicine”. Functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.

As Dr. Brian Davies BSc ND says and I quote in my book, “I encourage everyone with a chronic disease, or anyone that cares for someone suffering from a chronic disease, to understand that John’s case outlines something greater than macular degeneration; this approach can be applied to any chronic disease state.”
