I used castor oil for cataracts -- a drop in each eye for 8 nites.... Got rid of cataracts and grew fabulous eye lashes.
Can-C (N-Acetylcarnosine Drops)
I don't have cataracts, and have never used any products to cure them, or halt them. In my reading on the internet a few weeks ago, I came across this information about some eye-drops that have been tested on cataract patients, and it was said that they were proven to help many patients both 1. Halt the deterioration, 2. Reverse the cataract damage partially, perhaps totally in some cases. The eye-drops were developed by a russian man.
I do not know if they will work for you, or not. Have someone help you do some research on it.
Carnosine for Cataracts
By Katina Blue, eHow Contributor
Carnosine for Cataracts - Carnosine in eye drop form is effective for treating cataracts.
Every eye has a lens that is similar to the lens of a camera. The lens helps with vision clarity, and it aids in focusing on objects. Cataracts is a condition that causes cloudiness to develop in an eye lens. It can cause impaired vision and blindness if untreated. Although surgery is generally used to treat cataracts, carnosine eye drops are effective for reversing this condition.
In 1987, Dr. Alan Babizhayev, a Russian researcher, and his colleagues were the first to propose L-carnosine, a form of carnosine, as a possible treatment for cataracts. They developed N-acetylcarnosine eye drops to treat the condition. After the drops were used in human and animal clinical trials, positive results were documented. Since then, other research studies have been done on carnosine's effects on cataracts.
Carnosine is a molecule composed of two amino acids, alanine and histidine. It is a natural antioxidant found in several tissues of the body, including heart muscle, skeletal muscle and the brain. Low levels of a certain type of carnosine are also naturally produced in your eyes. Carnosine is generally administered in eye drop form to treat cataracts. In addition to treating cataracts, carnosine is used to treat ulcers, reverse aging and heal wounds.
When a buildup of protein forms on an eye's lens, abnormal clumps develop, causing a cataract to form. The clumps of protein cause the opaque appearance of a cataract affected eye. Carnosine stops the formation of these clumps and helps to dissolve the cataract. It also prevents glycation, a chemical process that interferes with cell function by causing a reaction between blood sugars and proteins in the lenses of our eyes.
As of 2010, there are no documented side effects to using carnosine. When used in very high doses, some short-term effects of it are drowsiness and shallow sleep. Although no major side effects have been reported, watch for any reactions after use and report any abnormalities to your physician.
Various studies done on humans and animals show that carnosine effectively dissolves cataracts over time. According to Dr. Babizhayev, when a group of cataract patients was treated with carnosine eye drops, 41. 5 percent showed a significant improvement in vision clarity and 88. 9 percent improved in regard to sensitivity and glare. These patients were studied over 24 months and the effectiveness was sustained during that time.

Cararacts/ Castor Oil
Make sure when you use Castor Oil on Cataracts that you don't waste your time and eyesight on Castor Oil that is inferior. Get 1) Organic 2) Cold-Pressed 3) Hexane-free and 4) Glass Bottled. Never use plastic bottled Oil. You want the best product to get the best results.
Read the book “Curing with Cayenne” by Dr. Richard Schulze.
He studied under Dr Christopher and gave him the idea to use cayenne in the eye formula. It will help you understand the mechanics of its use.
Yes, ACV diluted can be used in the eye but it does burn! For me, the eye formula worked better. Just give it time to work.
Also, increase your vitamin A, B-Complex, C & E intake or none of this will have good results.
Pascalite is a creamy white-colored form of bentonite clay found only in the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming. Cataract patients have reported that applying the clay paste to their eyelids and making eye drops from water filtered through the clay has helped to dissolve their cataracts.
People have also reported that using regular gray bentonite clay, made into a paste, applied to your closed eyelids, and left on for about 30 minutes will eventually get rid of cataracts.
Bentonite has many uses, I keep a small jar of paste (bentonite mixed with water) on my kitchen counter.
If you burn yourself, apply it immediately. It's a bloody miracle! The pain is instantly gone. It's great for insect bites and a zillion other things.
I've used castor oil as an eye drop for nearly 1 year. I have seen no difference in my vision or the density of my cataract. It does not sting and hasn't caused any harm. I don't find the drops particularly soothing either. You may get different results. If you choose to try it, use only organic, cold-pressed, hexane free castor oil. I bought mine on Amazon and fill a small blue glass dropper bottle. Use one drop in each eye before bedtime.
Here in Brazil we have a kind of honey named "Mel de Jataí" that folk people believe to cure cataract. I have been using it in my eyes and feel a great improvement. It is necessary to use one drop a day in each eye for two months and the cataract will vanish. I was diagnosed with cataract a few months ago. You may research for a correspondent honey in English. I think it is worth trying.
EC: Here's an excerpt on Honey Jatai from Brazil that we found online.
..."The honey of jataí bees is sought after for its medicinal properties and immunological, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, sedative, expectorant, desensitizing and antibacterial effects. It is also effective for swollen eyes and treatment of cataracts."
You can make your own cataract/macular degeneration eye drops: My eye surgeon (God) would not give me an Rx for these eye drops--he thought it was homeopathic nonsense. However, you can make your own.
- 1/2 oz. 99.99% DMSO
- 1/2 oz. distilled water
- 2-3 pinches finely ground glutathione powder. Some people use MSM instead of DMSO.
Boil the glass dropper and the bottle to sterilize.
These don't sting my eyes, but they may sting yours.
I had cataract surgery on one eye and this formula clouded that lens: DMSO is a solvent. I wish I'd never had the surgery but allowed my son to talk me into it.
You can also make your own liposomal glutathione. One doctor is reversing macular degeneration with glutathione injections but the liposome form is even more powerful. You can buy all the equipment you need for less than the cost of one Dr.'s appointment.
If you want to make your own liposomes, you'll find plenty of YouTube videos showing you how. I use sunflower lecithin instead of the soy the videos use. Also, you need to process glutathione for about 30 minutes as it takes longer to encapsulate than vitamin C.
Your accelerated heart rate may quite likely be due to your being allergic to the castor oil. Have read in many journals that one way to test food allergy is to take your pulse before and again after eating a food. If it increases that's a very good indication you are allergic. I have found that to be a great indicator. So since you absorb the castor oil through your skin it would react the same way. I am allergic myself to Castor Oil, otherwise would try it for cataracts but think I'll try the carnosine approach but will definitely muscle test before putting in my eyes. Good luck with your journey!
Can somebody tell me me which castor oil to use for cataract? Is it cold pressed, cold processed organic? and where to buy?
I was recommended the organic hexane free castor oil. I have this morning received it from the USA so have not tried it yet. I have glaucoma in both eyes and use drops every night so will need to use the castor oil during the day. I will give it sometime and then let you know how I get on.
Choose organic cold pressed hexane free Castor Oil in a glass bottle. I would try Castor Oil on the eyelids first. Some people can be allergic to Castor Oil.
For dry eyes mix a drop of organic honey in a drop of distilled pure water in each eye.
Blink, it will sting at first, then it will soothe the dry eyes.
Another bit of information for Helen from Long Island who wonders why castor oil bottles may say not to use near the eyes: I just read about pink eye in the ailments section on this (earth clinic)site -- and one of the cures given is drops of castor oil put in the eyes. The person recommending it said they used it repeatedly as needed for different instances of pink eye - so it would appear to be safe, as least from their comments.
Castor Oil for Cataracts
Dr. Norm Shealy has been using castor oil to treat cataracts in his patients for decades. He does many clinical studies, and he has found an 80% success rate among his patients who followed his castor oil cataract protocol. For me, it was a total failure.
Eye Drops, Lutein
To Aurora (Victoria), Sandy (Naperville) and Eileen (Brazil) - If you Google the ingredients from Royalbounty's post (just cut and paste it in Google's search box), you will find the product. I did and it came up with Life Extension's Brite Eyes III. Hope that helps!
Could be an allergy. I have read the castor oil must be hexane free.
How much time does the coconut water takes to dissolve cataract. Is it successful in a cataract that is nearly advanced? Tell about the quantity, process, method, how many times in a day. Regards
Please DO NOT put neat DMSO in your eye, you MUST always dilute DMSO when using internally, say to 70% with distilled or deionised water. The stuff from Dr Jacobs smells a little like petrol and leaves a taste like that in your mouth that you need to rinse away with a few small glasses or orange juice or any other fruit juice. It should ALWAYS be a little diluted, say to 70% before drinking for instance, I have drunk three double vodka glasses neat at once on several occasions and am still here, but when neat like that it has a slightly irritating and de-oiling effect on tissue, and when used neat externally, it makes skin on the arm raw looking and feeling and uncomfortable, maybe a little cream or oil with it when used on skin externally would be good.
So thinking about this, you don't want the tissue in your eye, which, like the brain, is largely oil, disrupted, this stuff is a powerful chemical, and might cause tissues in your eye to lose integrity when oil is stripped, so dilute at maximum to 70% and you will still notice a slight exothermic reaction, not enough to burn, just a slight warmth like you drank some lukewarm tea.
It would depend on what else is in the solution besides saline, cause whatever else those ingredients might be, are going to be shooting thru your system. Doesn't that stuff come with cleaning agents as well for the lenses? I would give that a hard pass.
Some sea salt mixed with distilled water would be better for the eyes. A naturopath I used to watch said once that even straight DMSO has been used by a patient of hers for his cataracts. He said it hurt like a mofo for a few mins, but it did heal! I say make your own saline solution, 1% strength would be fine. Dilute the DMSO to your comfort level. I only posted this so you could hear that the undiluted is not harmful, but diluted would be far better, oh, and don't use the contact lens stuff either.
Go to https://normshealy.com/castor-oil-for-cataracts/ -- he says "Each night, at bedtime, place into each eye one drop of USP castor oil. The reason for bedtime is that the vision will be clouded for a while because of the oil, but it is used up overnight. DO NOT USE THE CASTOR OIL YOU WOULD USE FOR CASTOR OIL PACKS OR BATHS! Cataracts disappear over 2 to 6 months, depending on the degree of development..."
Jorge (Los Angeles) ---
Cold pressed castor oil daily five times a week before bed has helped a lady here on EC. However it took three years and all was clear. Operations carry their own risk. I nearly lost a good eye due to a clumsy surgeon.
Raw unheated honey dissolves in the eye and removes diseases. I would use natural homeopathic eye drops as well.
Carnosine eye drops are made by several companies. I bought a brand for abour $25.50-lasts about 1 month. I bought another brand & found the exact same packaging & ingedients for almost double the price. I have been using it for 5 months for cataracts without noticing a difference. I was told it works for 90% of people.
Can-C (N-Acetylcarnosine Drops)
The amino acid is actually not carnitine but Carnosine which is obtainable as eyedrops. Apparently it can also be taken orally which also benefits the complexion.
Can-C (N-Acetylcarnosine Drops)
Thanks for your input on Can-C for dogs. I accomplished the same for my 125lb shepherd with a product called NuVet, a 1-a-day wafer from a company by the same name. It took 1 month and he went from mistaking my finger for a tasty carrot treat to leading the way on a moonless desert hike in unfamiliar terrain. I recommend the product highly for anyone whose dogs are getting those white glazed over eyes as they age.
I went to the health food store to get the cold pressed castor oil and on the bottle it says not to get it near the eyes. I am a firm believer of castor oil and have used it for years, but not the cold pressed. What is the difference and why does it say not to use it near the eyes?
I researched a book called Physician's Reference Notebook and now have an excerpt from that book on what Edgar Cayce told some people to do:
"The following is a summary of the most commonly prescribed treatments. They are aimed at improving the circulation and eliminations and in allowing for better attunement to spiritual forces to provide coordination of the physical, mental and spiritual:
1. Osteopathy. Adjustments in the upper cervical and dorsal segments (C1, 2, 3; DI, 2, 3); sometimes in the lower dorsal coordinating with the upper lumbar. Frequency: about twice weekly for five to six weeks with rest periods of two to three weeks. This was by far the most commonly prescribed treatment.
2. Massage. With peanut oil (sometimes a combination of oils). Frequency is variable. Again twice weekly would be reasonable, though in one instance it was recommended on a daily basis before retiring. Emphasis to spine, mastoid, temple and chin areas.
3. Violet ray treatment. Sometimes recommended only after the first osteopathic series. Would be applied along the spine, head and neck areas for three minutes, then with the double-eye applicator over closed eyes for another one-and-a-half minutes about three times per week. A Glyco-Thymoline or Epsom salt pack may be used over same areas for 20-30 minutes prior to the violet ray treatments. * Discharge from the eyes may occur with these treatments. This should be wiped off with a non-irritating, antiseptic solution. * Potato poultice may also be used after the violet ray treatment. Wash off with weak eye solution that will remove inflammation drawn by the poultice.
4. Eliminations. At least once or twice daily using natural laxatives, e.g. , Eno salts, Fletcher's Castoria, bicarbonate of soda with cracker crumbs, etc. ; colonics, if necessary.
5. Diet. A wholesome diet rich in fruits and vegetables. Seafoods are allowed but no meats or sweets. Raw carrots, lettuce, celery, watercress and the like are beneficial.
6. Vibratory treatment. Another way of stimulating blood flow is, first, rub the body with cold water to produce shock, followed by fast vibratory treatment (reading 3943-1). Frequency and duration not specified. Twice weekly treatment is suggested lasting 20-30 minutes.
7. Spiritual counseling, prayer, and meditation. These are other modalities available to ensure integration of the triune body, mind and spirit. "
An Osteopath that uses the "old school of thought" is hard to find these days - sometimes you will need to go to a Chiropractor instead. Hope this helps!
Cayenne is used for eyes, however extreme that might sound. Dr. Christopher recalled a student of his standing in front of a lecture and throwing a pinch of cayenne into one eye. Dr. Christopher was sure the student had lost his senses! But in a few moments, the eye stopped watering, and it became clear, bright and healthy-looking.
[This is why Dr. Christopher has Cayenne in his Herbal Eyebright formula].
DMSO clears cataracts.
I don't have any experience topically, but internally consumed mixed with spinach clears them.
The person I know that did this method used a tsp per day of DMSO in a spinach smoothie.
I noted you posted your comment in March. That is a season when allergies might just be starting to be an issue. Allergies can develop (and go away) at any time. The dryness and thing in your eye that won't go away really sound like allergy symptoms to me. I had a "phantom eyelash" in my eye until a friend told me it sounded like allergies. Then I knew what to do. CoQ10 can help & try taking vitamin C ....good vitamin C, not ascorbic acid. Something with acerola & rose hips. Ester-C is OK and readily available. Otherwise order NOW Vitamin C and take several grams a day. There is no way to take too much vitamin C. Your body will flush what it cannot use (which makes is a cure for constipation as well.) And get back to your healthy native Indian diet! It's full of vitamins and healthy fats.
If you've never used it before I would start by rubbing it on my skin first allowing your body a chance to become familiar with the substance and to see if you have any reaction. In which case if you do, you wouldn't use in the eyes.
Sounds like you are allergic.
T. Stone, different strokes for different folks. I've seen cataracts diminish from applying Castor Oil on the eyelids.
This looks like a case of nutrient deficiency. Low antioxidant status plus other nutrients necessary for eye health prevent many or most chronic eye diseases.
For many yrs there was an natural formula called "Occuguard" which contains many good nutrients for eyes, but I don't know if it's still marketed in this name; or go to local or online health food store for similar formula.
The ingredients list should contain as many of the fallowing nutrients as possible:
- Billberry herb
- Vit-A (Cod Liver Oil)
- Eyebright herb
These nutrients should restore your vision shortly and should not negative interact with the Oclumed product you are taking, however it would be safe to read the "interactions & warnings" labels on the product. If you could disclose what exactly this product contains that would help, but it appears a non-natural product and for short term use.
Using DMSO for eyes suggested only 20% strength, do not use more strength than 20%.
I tried the Castor Oil in my eyes and each time my heart rate accelerated so I had to stop. Anyone know why this would happen?
Cataracts can now be easily removed without surgery using drops. These drops use a chelation process to remove cataracts, which are advanced glycation end products, from the lens.The drops contain N-Acetyl L-Carnosine and colloidal silver and can be found on the internet. A crust will form outside the eye as the cataracts are removed.
Here is one source for N Acetyl L Carnosine :
Castor Oil, NAC
I believe the original poster was referring to her use of castor oil as the 2 drops per eye nightly. She also mentioned massaging the oil on her hands. I don't believe she was intending to say that she mixes the castor oil with the cottage cheese, or consumes it in any way.
Not sure about castor oil but read of a woman accidently splashing coconut water in her eye and her cataract disappeared. Perhaps you can google, read the story and go from there. Best wishes for clear vision!
Brook, you said that the 2 drops of cold pressed castor Oil in the eye at bed time will remove the cataract. How do you know this to work? I've read this also but no one has ever said something or some treatment really worked for them or someone they know. I know how I got the cataracts from taking baby asprin for Years for my heart problems and now I am on coumadin to keep my blood thin. The cold pressed castor oil does NOT hurt the eye but it lubricates it as when your eyes start showing they are getting dry the cataracts follow. I have been putting castor oil in my eyes for more than 1 1/2 years maybe 2 yrs. To keep them lubricated at night and upon awaking I put them in again and lay for an hour, also later in the afternoon to lubricate them again. If they start to dry out they get bothered and itchy etc.
They have "NOT" gone away but I am hoping that keeping them lubricated is slowing it down until "IF" there is something I can reverse them without surgery. There is some kind of eye drops developed by a Russian Dr that are suppose to dissolve them but they burn like the dickens and made my vision more blurry. It was $50 per month. I wish Someone who really knew how to dissolve or reverse them would post it out here for all us suffers. I think I heard ACV helps but I do ALL that!
I read a study a while back that in lab rats scientists were able to create cataracts and reverse them through the use of Beta-Carotene. Carrot Juice (made fresh not bought) is very high in Beta-Carotene. Maybe you should try that or look for a reputable supplement.
Judye, if you are still with us, here is a great suggestion. Instead of Coumadyn or other drug for thinning blood, trying taking a cool cayenne capsule after a meal. Cayenne naturally thins the blood without harmful side effects. I've used it for years. However, the capsule became too disturbing so I now sprinkle a little in my early lemon/lime juice/a little maple syrup with warm water (liver cleanse). It really helps and prevents strokes.
Under the topic of Cataracts on 12/17/2007, a Laureen Raftopulos from Johannesburg, South Africa wrote that her mother was given GLYCONUTRIENTS that cured her cataracts within a week. I would appreciate if you could obtain the exact types glyconutrients (brand name, manufacturer, chemical composition & the dosage involved) or otherwise provide me Laureens email to contact her for the details. Thanks & Regards Hasan
I am also interested in exactly what glyconutrients Laureen mother was given and in what quantities or dosage.
I would appreciate it if you would pass this e-mail along to Laureen and give her my e-mail so she can contact me directly with the information please.
I have cataracts and am looking at surgery if I don't find another alternative!
Thank you and wishing you all the best in 2010!
EC: Please type "glyconutrients" into a search engine and you will see the word "SCAM" appear repeatedly. We used to have a page on glyconutrients (with mostly negative reviews) but ended up deleting it last year after receiving an email from the legal department of a certain glyconutrient company!
Another thing to note is the date of the original poster's email - 12/2007. We received a few posts on glyconutrients between 2007 - 2009, but they all stopped after February 2009, when a maker of glyconutrients agreed to pay $6 million to settle a lawsuit brought by the Texas attorney general. The state alleged that the company made false claims about its health benefits and marketed products as cures and treatments for diseases.
Microcurrent Therapy, ACV
Island Girl, I don't remember how many years ago I started, maybe 3-4. They had told me that I was a 3 or thereabouts and in about 6 years would need cataract operations. Well, I was recently checked and they said it's about 2 or 3....So it seems to be working for me. Again, I don't drop it into my eyes, just extend some on my eyelash line with eyes closed, before sleep. And then again, not every single day.
Hello Sankie, how long have you been using the castor oil? Do you put it IN the eye or ON the eyelids? How many drops? How long it takes for each part of what you said above to take place? Did a doctor explain the above to you? The explanation does sound to be good and gives me hope. I have been using it for about 3 months and was about to give up. I do see better in the distance now, though. You have given me renewed hope.
Best DMSO I have found is from Biogenic Foods (biogenicfoods.com). It is USA produced (TX) and is 99.999% pure.
I looked on Amazon and saw many negative reviews on various other DMSO products. The Biogenics is pricy but my eyes are worth it.
i heard testosterone removes dry eye for good. Google tahoma clinic eye videos.
You make it sound as if the cure was instantaneous. Was it? Or did it take weeks? Months? It would be nice to know.
I'd like to ask how is coconut water used for cataracts. Sounds amazing and have tried many things and I know I will beat this somehow with all my faith in God to lead me to the best remedy. The effect it had on your Dad's eyes Lisa sounds amazing and so encouraging to us. Thanks for your reply.
Food for thought: I talked to a fellow who worked at a local health-food store, and told him my woeful tale about using Castor oil for my cataract. He shook his head, and said he had several customers tell him that FLAXSEED OIL was the ticket, not the Castor oil. I researched it on the Internet, but could only find a very few sparse references to using flaxseed oil for cataracts--and most of that was on dogs.
Me, I'm not gonna try it. If one of you brave souls want to give it a spin, look into it. If you try flaxseed oil, tell us how/if it works for you.....
