Slowing Cataract Progression: Evidence-Based Natural Remedies

Posted by Island Girl (Gc, Ci) on 10/23/2022

Good day,

I was reading about cayenne pepper remedy on Earth Clinic. I notice you have mentioned about Dr. John Christopher there.

I have just started using his Herbal Eyebright Formula for help with my cataracts.

But I am worried about the cayenne in it, not because it stings, but because I have a history of CSR (central serous retinopathy) in my left eye. My left eye is the only good eye I have, and I have had CSR in that eye 4 times, the first time in 1999, then in 2016,2018 and 2020. It heals on its own, but it leaves a scar at the back of the retina.

As steroids / stimulants (like chocolate, coffee, salmon, etc) in excess cause CSR, I am worried that cayenne pepper is a steroid / stimulant. But I have read great reviews of how people have dissolved their cataracts using a Dr. Christopher's Herbal Eyebright. I am using only 2 or 3 drops total diluted in distilled water for 2 eye cups. So about 1 or 1.5. Drops per eye cup, and do it twice a day. The strength of cayenne for 10 drops is 40 HU. I am guessing it is not much for me to worry.

I have used it for about a week and am ok.

I am seeking your valuable advice and guidance.

Also, have you heard of a ACV eye wash helping to dissolve cataracts?

Many thanks,
