Aloe Vera Gel For Pterygium (Hard Lumps Inside Eye):

I had pterygium in my left eye and came to earth clinic. I am currently taking ACV. I've had it for 3 months. The lump was bigger than a pin head and growing. It was hard like a callous compared to rest of eye. I put on aloe vera gel and rubbed on my eyelids an let some seep in. It stung for like 1/10 of a second, next morning it was significantly smaller. I used morning and night by second day it was completely gone. Plus my little red veins from being tired were also gone. Thanks earth clinic!

Thought my eye would burst one day. Saw one specialist who told me I had to go for eye ope to remove the pterygium. Half of the cornea right eye was covered with the white stuff.It was bad ... And watery all the time. My dad who had cancer advised me to use Acv.

I started by making 1 part Apple Cider Vinegar and 3 part water. I would put drops into the affected eye. I tried this for about 6 months. Size of the pterygiun dropped. Wanna tell you something today. 2 weeks ago I started drinking Acv, one glass of water warm with 2 table spoons of Apple Cider Vinegar first thing in the morning and at bedtime.

Whaasaa results were shocking. Black part of the eye is coming out after 7 years. I have put my glasses away.... Unbelievable.
