Taking Charge of Your Health

Today is a big day people, Intermittent Fasting
and how it is the new treatment for glaucoma. It treats it in two different ways and I’ve
got the clinical studies to prove it. The number one way is:
It protects and preserves the optic nerve from damage when pressures go up, and
2. it lowers intra ocular pressure. Roll it… Glaucoma. 90% of all of you who are diagnosed with glaucoma
are diagnosed with: Primary Open Angle Glaucoma and it is the leading cause of blindness in
the entire United States . It occurs when the fluid in the eye can’t
drain and so the canal gets clogged. Then, it increases the pressure of the eye
and it eventually leads to gradual loss of vision. Experts agree that cause is unknown and that
is why it is not preventable. Now, there aren’t any real pharmacological treatments
that work either. The medicines they prescribe do help bring
down the I.O.P. (which is the intra-ocular pressure), but the condition of the optic
nerve continues to deteriorate even when the I.O.P. (intra-ocular pressure) is within a
normal range. And with those problems, now enters Intermittent
Fasting into the equation. Intermittent Fasting protocols are essentially
“when” you eat. The intermittent fasting works to deplete
our body’s stored glucose that is located within our muscles to switch our bodies from
burning glucose as our main source of fuel to using ketones as the main source of fuel
for our mitochondria to burn. Intermittent Fasting is a type of metabolic
therapy that is currently being used to treat cancer, to treat alzheimer’s, autoimmune disorders,
Parkinson’s, and even completely reverses Type 2 diabetes. The first clinical study I want to talk about
is the one released in April 2009 by the Investigative Ophthalmology and Visual Science Volume 50. The premise is easy:
Glaucoma prevalence increases exponentially with age. and Intermittent Fasting extends the lifespan
and combats diseases associated with increasing age. Now remember earlier when I was mentioning
that medicines do lower I.O.P. but the optic nerve continues to deteriorate? Well intermittent fasting changes that! Now, let’s dig a little deeper and we find
out that the cells that make up the optic nerve are called retinal ganglion cell axons
and glial cells. The clinical study results were amazing. The fasted elderly group responded similarly
to the young group and even showed significantly less ganglion cell dysfunction during the
I.O.P. (intra-ocular pressure) challenge and even recovered faster. Oxidative stress on the retina and the optic
nerve of the fasted older group was also significantly lower. Conclusion:
Now, intermittent fasting, it protects and preserves the ganglion cells (or the optic nerve) from
damage of the high Intra-Ocular Pressure which is caused of the blocked canal. The 2nd clinical study is simple and straight
forward. It’s called the effects of intermittent fasting
on Intra-Ocular Pressure and it was published on 2014. 60 men and women were examined with an average
age of 42. The instructions were to fast for at least
10 hours, which when it comes to intermittent fasting as a protocol, 10 hours is not much
at all. They measured the I.O.P. before they began
fasting and also during the fast. The conclusion:
The conclusion of the study shows that fasting has a significant reduction effect in the
Intra-Ocular Pressure. Now I get to tell you how you can start changing
your life and getting started today. All you have to do is choose the eight hours
of your day when you are going to consume all of your day’s food. For example:
I eat everything I would normally eat between the hours of 9am and 5pm. So everything I would eat in a day, I’m going
to divide out into 2 or sometimes maybe even 3 meals. Two of the meals are normal to large and the
third one (if I even have it) is probably small to medium because I’m just not really
hungry. Once the eight hour window of eating is over,
though…. You don’t eat anything. Ok? You just drink water until the next day’s
eating window rolls around. It’s that simple. The Intermittent Fasting treatment for glaucoma,
that is just Part 1. I have a second treatment for glaucoma that
you are going to love to hear about and I would love to share it with you. Now, follow the link below and that way you
can get instructions on how to get it to your inbox. Thank you for watching!

  1. Sounds like a very constructive video. I I was diagnosed with Glaucoma last year. Pressure in both eyes is 18 as I type, but vision loss in right eye is bad compared to the left. They have prescribed new drops to use, to get the pressure down so to speak. 12 is ideal. What foods should I be eating during intermittent fasting?
