Glaucoma and Paleo?

by 10 · December 14, 2010 at 07:13 PM

Hi,

does anybody have experience with, or anecdotal evidence of, a paleo diet (in the broadest sense of the word) and alleviation of the symptoms of glaucoma (in particular intraocular pressure (IOP))?

Thanks in advance,

Matt

No experience, but I did find the following regarding using Alpha Lipoic Acid along with a paleo diet...account of two people who reduced their eye pressure.

And there is an anecdotal account on Cordain's site.

Once on the page, search for "glaucoma" to read the story.

I have glaucoma as well and am only 21 years old. I have had it since I was a young child and use Travatan Z in both eyes every night. It is a beta blocking drop so it controls the ocular pressure. Any other suggestions?

Can you say where on the paleodiet page the story about glaucoma is? There's no search box to find it and it's a really long page. Thanks. Gillian
