Eye Posterior Vitreous Detachment (PVD) Natural Remedies

PVD is a condition where the vitreous part of the eye detaches at the back of the eye and threatens the optic nerve. This is a serious health problem that needs to be addressed by a professional. The symptoms when sever are a sensation of cobwebs before the eyes. It is called PVD and is a rare condition (fortunately). Causes may be some sort of weakness or injury. Modern medicine uses surgery and may be essential. It may not help everyone.

Natural solutions are meant to prevent the condition by strengthening the eyes and the tissues. Use several while waiting for professional treatment, and use afterward to prevent relapses. (Get regular checkups.) Nutritionally, use Lutein to help protect the retina.

Disclaimer: some drugs and herbs should not be combined.

Natural Healing Protocol: Combining supplements will do more to support your body’s ability to function properly than using just one. Use the following remedies for best results — your ability to heal will depend on the severity and length of time your symptoms have been present.
