Macular degeneration is a group of degenerative disease that affects the retina of the eye, in particular the macula, which is the most sensitive central part of the retina and situated between the underlying choroid and retinal pigment epithelium. This is also the part that is responsible for focusing central and fine detail vision.
The end result of macular degeneration is the loss of vision, and it usually occurs in the elderlies.
The treatment macular degeneration according to the use of Ayurveda technique utilises certain therapies. These therapies are described as follow
The exact cause of a macular degeneration is yet to be known. However, some factors have been identified to associate with it. They are as follows –
Macular degeneration is of two forms – a wet and a dry form.
In wet macular degeneration, the function of the retina, mainly macula (the most sensitive part of the retina and responsible for sharp and accurate vision), is seriously damaged.
For wet macular degeneration, the blood circulation in the retina is wholly involved in the pathology, and there is an encroachment of vessels towards the macular zone. The walls of the blood vessels later gets damaged as a result, and the fluid from there leaks into the retinal layers. This has a very high chance of leading to blindness if not handled correctly and in time. These days, incidence of wet macular degeneration is found to be on the increase, and diabetes seems to be a major contributing factor.
Wet macular degeneration accounts for about 10% of all macular degeneration cases.
Symptoms associated with wet macular degeneration include
The dry macular degeneration, which accounts for 90% of macular degeneration, is the degeneration of the macular area. This can lead to blindness. Sometimes, why this may take a long period of 10 years, blindness can also occur within a few days in certain types. The main pathological change in a dry macular degeneration is a dry drusen, a small yellowish lipids deposits that accumulate inside the retinal layers.
Symptoms associated with dry macular degeneration include
The main symptom of a dry macular degeneration is a blurry vision and the loss of central area of the visual field.
An Ayurveda treatment doesn’t focus on the symptoms, rather it identifies and focuses in the root cause.
Also, there are two driving principles for the Ayurveda treatment technique. These are
Secondly, an Ayurveda treatment is a natural treatment method and has not the tiniest trace of synthetic chemical. This makes the Ayurveda treatment easy on the body. Also, because of its naturalness, it does not pose any risk of side effects, even when it is taken for a long period of time. However, an improper use of it will almost always leads to an undesirable and negative outcome. To avoid unpleasant outcomes is why Ayurveda treatment is always tailored to individual needs. This also ensures a complete eradication of root causes and prevent future health issues.
Ayurveda treatment also uses a philosophic approach along with the medical science. Therefore, it considers the human mechanism and its specific identity and, hence, why two different persons with the same disease will never have the same Ayurveda treatment regimen due to differences in spirit, mind and body.
Can macular degeneration be permanently cured?
No, this is not possible. What is, however, possible is the arrest of the progression of a macular degeneration for longer periods of time. Vision can also be strengthened with the help of an Ayurveda treatment option for macular degeneration.
Is it common to have macular degeneration?
According to the World Health Organization, macular degeneration is the third leading cause of blindness after cataract and glaucoma worldwide.
Are there home remedies for macular degeneration?
There are a couple of recommendations that has been given by experts
