Macular Degeneration

Macular Degeneration is a disease of the elderly that is extremely devastating to the patient. It involves loss of central vision. This is devastating to the patient because as we age, we are not able do as many physical things as we once did so we rely heavily on our eyes for reading, watching television, watching the grandkids in school events, etc. In Macular Degeneration (dry form) there is reduced circulation in those small areas that feed the macula (that part of the eye that is responsible for central vision). The anatomy of the eye is such that the 4 arteries in the eye have their terminal branches ending in the macula (such as the terminal area fed by the leg arteries are the toes). We know that when circulation affects an area, the arteries farther down stream are the first to be lost. In a toe we might get gangrene. In the eye we get macular degeneration. Just as EDTA chelation helps gangrene, it also helps macular degeneration (paper #31). I have seen outstanding results with this disease and chelation. In macular degeneration, the earlier we get a patient, the more likely we will be able to help their vision improve.
