Ten years ago I was diagnosed at the beginning stages of macular degeneration and just yesterday, after reading here, I found an online video that showed how the disease progresses from the point of view of the person who has it. Lucky for me, I don't see things like that illustration showed at all. No hazy area in the centre of my field of vision progressing to darkening to..... But after watching the opening ten minutes of the Dr. Wallach video, I'm thinking that I'm doing so well because my diet is my main focus. I only eat vegetables, fruit, grains and nuts. I eat very little wheat products, choose my fats carefully and a few years ago, after a bit of research, started taking lutein and zinc as well as my thryoid med and the other basics (Vit. D, B12 and a couple of calcium tabs every day) It sounds like Dr. Wallach's main thing is eliminating the inflammation in our bodies to protect from or heal disease and a year ago, for another reason, my doctor did a complete blood panel and one thing they checked for was inflammation and his words, 'your inflammation levels are so low, it's perfect'. So somehow, I stumbled into doing the right things. It's been interesting reading the experiences of others here and enlightening too, to read your frustrations. I hope Babs that you can get your husband on board with a dietary change that will save his eyesight. I can't imagine why anyone wouldn't do everything they could to protect their vision! At the very end, when the body is done, if you can't even watch television or look at a sunset or admire the color of the flowers, what do you have left? Good luck working on him. Maybe the next doctor you get him lined up with will have just the right words to get him to change. Sometimes family is too close but a stranger can influence. Fingers crossed eh?
