The Lens Of The Eye:
Cataracts create a tremendous financial burden on our society. Among U.S. Medicare recipients, cataract surgery is the most common major surgical procedure, costing $600,000 each year. Cataracts can be classified by location and appearance of the lens opacities, by cause or significant contributing factor, and by age of onset. Many factors may cause or contribute to the progression of lens opacity, including; ocular disease, injury, or surgery; systemic disease (e.g., diabetes mellitus, galactosemia); exposure to toxins, radiation, or ultraviolet and near-ultraviolet light; and hereditary disease. The lens of the eye is, obviously, a vital component of the visual system due to its ability to focus light (via changes in shape while maintaining transparency. Unfortunately, this transparency decreases with age. The majority of people over sixty years of age display some degree of cataract formation. With normal aging there is a progressive increase in size, weight, and density of the lens, but although cataracts are common they should not be considered normal.

In cataract formation, the normal protective mechanisms are unable to prevent free-radical damage totally. The lens, like many other tissues of the body, is dependant on adequate levels and activities of the antioxidant enzymes superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase, and glutathione (GSH) and adequate levels of the accessory antioxidants vitamins E and C and selenium to aid in preventing free-radical damage. Individuals with higher dietary intakes of vitamins C and E, selenium, and carotenes have a much lower risk of developing cataracts.
The power of Vitamin C:
Several clinical studies have demonstrated that vitamin C supplementation can halt cataract progression and, in some cases, significantly improve vision. For example, in one study conducted in 1939, 450 patients with cataracts were placed on a nutritional program that included 1 gram of vitamin C per day, which resulted in a significant reduction in cataract development. Though similar patients had previously required surgery within four years, among the vitamin-C-treated patients only a small number required surgery. During the eleven-year period of the study, most of the vitamin-C-treated patients showed no evidence that the cataracts progressed.
From the beginning of time man has performed some duty of detoxification method through fasting or by merely eating the directed herbs in which to specifically cleanse the liver. As we see the concept of internal cleansing and detoxification in our history, how can we not search out the value and true rewards of renewal. In modern times, as society has increasingly been exposed to toxic compounds in the air, water, and food, it has become apparent that our ability to detoxify substances to which we are exposed is of critical importance in our overall health.
To identify toxins in the body and natural ways to support the detoxification and elimination of these harmful compounds. We must understand that even our bodies and the bacteria in our intestines produce toxic substances. Toxins can damage the body in an insidious and cumulative way. Once the detoxification system becomes overloaded, toxic metabolites (products of metabolism) accumulate, and we become progressively more sensitive to other chemicals, some of which are not normally toxic. This accumulating of toxins can wreak havoc on our normal metalbolic processes. To enhance detoxification, we must improve our liver function. Our modern environment seriously overloads our liver, resulting in increased levels of circulating toxins in the blood, which damage or effect most of our organs. An overburdened liver sends out alarm signals that manifest as psoriasis, acne, chronic headaches, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, and chronic fatigue.
