The Goddess Panacea (Πανάκεια), was a goddess of healing. She symbolized the universal power of healing through herbs. Herbs are healing, when used in the proper mixtures. I do hope you will enjoy my all natural products as much as I enjoy making them.
I sometimes am reminded of the blind patients that often came to my office. There were diseases of the retinal blood vessels, such as glaucoma, black cataracts, detached retinas, inflammation of the retina and optic nerves, and without exaggeration, I can say that it was amazing how effective germanium had been. 1 often witnessed scenes where patients wept as they cried out, "Now I can see ." Those who could not see would invariably say, ''If 1 could only see again, Doctor, I would give anything. If it were money I would even go into debt to pay for it. I cannot understand the psychology of people who know the joy of seeing, and yet do evil things and are greedy. There can be no greater happiness in the world than being able to see. . .: During the International Angiological Congress, I met a professor of ophthalmology at the State Medical College of Rio de Janeiro. He wrote that using the germanium compound on a patient virtually blind with amaurosis yielded amazingly good results, and that the patient was well on the road to recovery. It had already been verified that germanium rejuvenates retinal vessels, and is therefore effective in treating glaucoma and amaurosis. His letter has added new evidence of its efficacy. http://www.regenerativenutrition.com/content.asp?id=440
Aside from making sure that your reading prescription is up-to-date, one of the best ways to lower pressure inside the eyeballs is with a mineral called chromium, says Dr. Lane.
In a study done at Columbia University, Dr. Lane asked more than 400 people with eye disease to detail the foods they had eaten during the previous two months. Then they took tests to measure the vitamin and mineral content of their blood. Among the findings: Those people who didn’t get enough chromium and who ate too many vanadium-containing foods were at higher risk for glaucoma. (Vanadium is another common mineral that occurs naturally in many foods, including kelp, dulse and other seaweed as well as large marine fish.)
“What set of muscles do we use more today than ever before in recorded history? The focusing muscles in our eyes,” says Dr. Lane. “And what nutrient helps facilitate the ability of our eye muscles to focus? The bottom line is that most of us need more chromium, especially if we have been eating refined and sugar-supplemented foods.” Adequate chromium levels are necessary to help deliver needed energy to your eye-focusing muscles, he says.
And what’s the connection between eye muscles and glaucoma? When you perform tasks that require prolonged intense focus, such as reading, too much fluid can be produced inside the eyeballs, Dr. Lane explains. In some people, he says, the fluid doesn’t drain properly and pressure builds, contributing to glaucoma.
People who suffer from Type II (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes seem more likely to develop glaucoma, says Dr. Lane. And that’s not surprising, he says, because both people with diabetes and those with glaucoma have been found to be low in chromium.
The best sources of chromium include egg yolks, brewer’s yeast and most unrefined foods rich in energy content. Consequently, ripe fresh sweet and starchy fruits and vegetables also contain more than adequate chromium, says Dr. Lane.
LA memiliki 2 isomer yaitu R-enantiomer dan S-enantiomer. R-LA (bahasa Inggris: [(R)-5-(1,2-dithiolan-3-yl)pentanoic acid) dapat ditemukan pada banyak makanan yang mengandung sejenis protein yang disebut lisina. Ikatan kovalen yang dibentuk antara kedua senyawa tersebut menghasilkan senyawa yang disebut lipolisina, yang banyak ditemukan pada bahan nabati seperti
horenso (Spinacia oleracea)
garden peas (Pisum sativum)
brussel sprouts (Brassica oleracea)
rice bran (bekatul)

Magnesium has long been recognized as nature's physiological calcium blocker. Previous studies had demonstrated that calcium channel-blocking drugs offer benefits for some glaucoma patients. Armed with this revelation, researchers at the University Eye Clinic in Basel, Switzerland, evaluated the effect of supplemental magnesium on glaucoma patients. Magnesium (121.5 mg twice daily) was administered to 10 glaucoma patients for 1 month. At the conclusion of the study, results substantiated that magnesium supplementation improved the peripheral circulation, with an accompanying beneficial effect on the visual field in patients with glaucoma.
Magnesium also has the ability to turn off the sympathetic nervous system. This is a reputation that has earned magnesium credit in cardiology, acting as an antiadrenergic. An antiadrenergic drug blocks the effects of impulses transmitted by the adrenergic postganglionic fibers of the sympathetic nervous system. This act would tone and modify the sympathetic response, soothing the "fight or flight" syndrome. Recall that among the many functions controlled by the sympathetic nervous system--those normally not under conscious control--are dilation of the pupils and a general stimulatory response. Stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system would be contraindicated in glaucoma control.
Minerals are absolutely essential to longevity and quality of life. Individuals can survive longer with a vitamin deficiency than with a mineral deficiency. The importance of minerals is becoming more evident as research data amass. The trace mineral chromium has won additional credit beyond stabilization of blood glucose levels by being able to improve focusing of the eye and lower IOP. Selenium benefits ocular function, and zinc supports healthy eye structure. Selection of a good multiple will provide these vital minerals, plus additional nutrients needed for ocular health.
Melatonin (bahasa Inggris: melatonin, N-acetyl-5-methoxytryptamine) adalah hormon neurotropik dengan gugus antioksidan indolamina, yang disintesis oleh kelenjar pineal yang terletak di dalam otak dari senyawa asam amino triptofan. Melalui pencerapnya, melatonin berperan dalam berbagai proses fisiologis seperti ritme biologis, regulasi tekanan darah, onkogenesis, retina, reproduksi, ovarium, sistem kekebalan dan diferensiasi osteoblas. Transduksi sinyal pada lintasan melatonin meningkatkan rasio enzim antioksidan seperti superoksida dismutase, peroksidase, glutathion dan meredam enzim prooksidan seperti nitrogen monoksida sintase dan liposigenase.
Melatonin has been reported in foodstuffs including
bananas and grapes
rice and cereals
wine and beer
While no food has been found to elevate plasma melatonin levels in humans, when other animals consume melatonin-containing food, blood levels of melatonin do increase.
Perhaps one of the best natural treatments for glaucoma is a daily dose of flavonoid complex supplements. These supplements have all five required flavonoids: flavones, flavanones, flavanols, anthocyanidins, and catechins. These have not only shown to be promising for the reversal of glaucoma, but are good for general health, too.
It is a major flavonoid in grapefruit and gives the grapefruit juice its bitter taste.

It is primarily responsible for the color of red wine, Vitis vinifera being one of its sources. It is also one of the anthocyanidins responsible for the blue pigment found in the Primula plants of the polyanthus group.
Peonidin gives purplish-red hues to flowers such as the peony, from which it takes its name, and roses. It is also present in some blue flowers, such as the morning glory.
Musa x paradisiaca
It is a dark-red or purple water-soluble pigment found in many redberries including chokeberries (Aronia sp), Saskatoon berries (Amelanchier alnifolia) or different species of grape (for instance Vitis vinifera, or muscadine, Vitis rotundifolia), and also part of the pigments responsible for the petal colors in many flowers. The name of the molecule itself is derived from the word Petunia.
