I had two large floaters in my eyes and many smaller ones. I find that every time I eat beets the floaters get smaller and fainter. I eat canned beets and notice an improvement every time. I would not drink beet juice because it does not have all the good benefits of whole beets. When I stop eating beets my floaters remain the same until I start eating them again. For me, beets are the only things that work.

Comfrey Tea, Castor Oil

I developed eye floaters in my left eye a month ago. It was like looking through black lace. I went to an opthmalogist to make sure that I didn't have a detached retina and thankfully it wasn't. So I began trying to cure the floaters with things I have on hand.

I began drinking comfrey tea three times a day (I grow comfrey in my yard) I mixed raw honey onto it, putting about a teaspoon full of honey into a quart of tea. I used an eye dropper of the tea (cooled) three times a day.

The floaters started to diminish after four days. Comfrey is high in lutein which is great for your eyes and also a cell prolifilerator- so I figured it was a win win.

I continued to research and found out that castor oil (hexane free) - a drop in the eye at night also helps heal, so I began doing that also.

I am happy to report that my floaters are gone!

My doctor was amazed but ayurvedic medicine has known about castor oil for centuries.

Oil Pulling

Oil pulling definitely worked for my eye floaters. I started years ago with oil pulling for my eczema on my feet. My ophthalmologist had said the eye floaters were from old age and nothing could be done about it. however, I noticed a couple of days after oil pulling (walnut oil) my irritating floaters started disappearing and within a week they were gone. I don't do oil pulling religiously except for gum irritations and when a floater appears every year or so.

Castor Oil, MSM

Castor oil and MSM work. Last summer had my eyes filled with ants when looking at the sky - thought something serious was happening. Went straight to the eye doctor, said that I had floaters, caused all the ants running around, then they turned into wormlike bundles, said the vitreous fluid drying and pulling away was the issue, I am 65. So.... went online, since eye doc could do nothing for me - said vision was fine!! Worried me, search and find.... MSM drops, ordered dexterity health drops... use them daily. then read castor oil can help, filled up a cleaned out Visine bottle with the castor the drops every night in my eye, removes your eye makeup really well - two birds :)

then about a week later, noticed all floaters shrinking... I am going to be continuing this forever, don't want those pesty floaters around.... good luck all - worked for me

My floaters made vision in my right eye foggy. Any glare made it difficult to see.. Like sun or TV. After three weeks taking 1000 mg of taurine they are almost gone. No more foggy vision or glare problem. I'm 65. I'm taking taurine for the rest of my life!

I developed floaters years ago [I was told if you were near sighted, and lived long enough, that you would develop floaters]. Recently I developed dry eyes along with itchiness. I applied 2-4 drops of Castor Oil at bedtime. The first treatment removed the dryness 90%, so I continued nightly for 7-8 nights and my eyes feel almost 'new' my surprise, my floaters have reduced 90% as well [treating for floaters was not in my plan] :)

Hi Pbatech

There is magic all around us my friend. It's called the human body's ability to heal itself with the correct nutrition. You just have to know where to look. Jay may be correct in what he says. Everyone's body is different.

Got spontaneous eye floaters 2 days ago along with flashing light at the corner of my eye. Came to this sight for insight and remedy, as usual. Last night put Colloidal Silver drops in my eyes. A little burning, no better. Today, for lunch I drank fresh beet and carrot juice, about 3 cups through lunch and beyond. I washed the unpeeled carrots and beets and juiced them. Yum! Eye floaters gone right now! One hour later. Well, there is a little one left - negligible. I'll drink more later and tomorrow. LOVE this sight and all of you! Thank you for posting and for your help and wisdom.

This is so great because yesterday, I went to sign up for health insurance. LOL! I could pay a premium of $38.25 and my deductible was $14,300. No vision, no dental included. Shocking! What can we do to change this, folks? We all say yes to this debacle. There has got to be a different way. Meanwhile, I'll keep coming back and making myself a guinea pig.

So I use earth clinic as a first source for pretty much everything and it is ALWAYS helpful but I understand that natural remedies sometimes take a little longer to work than western medicine. Therefore I always use it over a trial period and expect gradual results over time.

Well, with eye floaters and beet juice I can honestly say that this post has come an hour after eating about half a can of canned beets. The reduction in eye floaters is amazing.

Long story short 2 years ago the vision in my right eye started changing. I got tons of testing and they couldn't find anything wrong but they were able to confirm that I had reduced vision in the center of my eye. Fast forward two years and I suspected that there was a possibility it could be a floater just in a very uncomfortable place ( the center of my eye) causing its presence to be more inconvenient than the norm.

So I came onto earth clinic, decided to try the beets and VOILA! A mere hour later, while the floater is not completely gone and I don't know if it will stay gone, it is AT LEAST 50% better than it was just an hour ago!

I work on a computer pretty much 10 hours a day so it's very noticeable, but hey if you have eye floaters try this, worst case scenario it doesn't work and you now have your daily dose of vitamin C!

Grape Seed Proanthocyanidin Extract for Eye Floaters

I had previously thought(yesterday) that high dose (2400 mg/day in two divided doses at breakfast and dinner.) Grape Seed Proanthocyanidin Extract (GSPE) had caused a 50% reduction in my eye floaters that had still remained after a previous treatment, but on review this morning, I realized that my left eye no longer has any floaters and my right eye has less floaters and they are faded or lighter, whereas they used to be darker. Overall I would describe the total reduction as 80% over about a two month period.

It will be interesting to see if, over time, what remains in my right eye goes away completely also. The eye floaters were not the reason that I started the GSPE, but it is a nice bonus! There is significant anecdotal evidence on the web suggesting that GSPE would beneficial for the eyes and floaters, but I don't find any studies that have looked into GSPE for floaters.


Vitamin B12

For probably 2 years have been trying to customize a cure for eye floaters. Eye Floaters became real obnoxious with menopause. Florescent lights and sunlight were real tough situations for me. I stumbled upon Vit. B1 in researching. The article said Vit. B1 was directly related to the movement of the eyes. That was exactly when the floaters were bad for me. When I moved my eyes back and forth. Vit. B1 made a significant difference. Right now I am tinkering with the individual Vit. Bs to find out what works best ie. Vit. B Complex, B1, B2, B6 and B12.

Years ago I got the weak stomach acid and that is a sign of Vit. B deficiency also. So, the floaters were not the only symptom. I have not seen many cures that mention this but Adelle Davis in her book hit upon this. Finding this is a huge relief because it is a very manageable solution. The capper is that Vit. B increases your energy by better processing your food. Who would have guessed!!

I too have put castor oil in my eyes for floaters; it took them away. I did this several times, it worked just fine. There is no pain at all when you put castor oil in your eyes.

I just experienced this in early 2020 and again in September. I saw huge floaters that looked like handlebar mustaches and then huge carpenter ant floaters. Flashes of light as well. An eye doctor is in order in case it is a retinal detachment. Mine was a detached vitreous humor both times. There is nothing that can be done. The eye doctor I saw said your brain eventually ignores the floaters. Now I just see a whole sheet of pin tip size floaters. Good luck! Getting old is not for sissies.

Taurine gets rid of my floaters in one day and my eye sight improves dramatically as well.. One tablet (500) mgs/ day.. Miracle stuff.

Avoid Canola and Rapeseed Oils

Well, thanks to Jesus and Earth Clinic, I am currently healed of 30+ things that were 5,10, and 15 year problems. However, I will say when my eyes started "flashing" it was more scary than normal. I thought I was already living pretty super clean. I added Hyaluronic Acid and the special eye nutrients.

One day I happened upon an article explaining how pigs were going blind in England due to a high canola/rapeseed oil diet. I was eating a lot of hummus.

At age 63, changes don't always happen fast, but I am almost totally healed.

Serrapeptase, L-Arginine

One of the best things to get eye floaters out is the enzime l-arginine...this wonderfull enzima comes from the silk worms they use it to get out of the cocoon...and its also helpful for people with blood clots, plus l-arginine augments circulation and irrigation....serrapeptase 2 to 3 times daily l-arginine 3 grams in the morning before breakfast 3 grams in the afternoon..2 hour after food....

Excess calc fluor in my body resulted the floaters. I am taking beet juce daily, now after 3 days, 80% floaters are gone, and rest are reduced in size, so wanted to continue to take beet juce.

Budwig Diet
Posted by Bonecrusher (Denver, Colorado) on 09/09/2011

No, you cannot just take the flax oil by itself, that defeats the whole premise of the Budwig Protocol. Oil pulling will just be a waste of good flax oil.

Mix 3tbsp flax to 6tbsp cottage cheese (2:1 ratio) mix it, add in some blueberries or other fruit of your choice and mix some more. Eat it, no whining about cottage cheese.
