    He uses ginger, onion, lemon and honey to treat glaucoma. He says it's better than those presribed beta-blocker drops you get to lower your eye-pressure. What do you guys think?

    Abstract


    Blood levels of thiamine and ascorbic acid in chronic open-angle glaucoma are determined in this study. Dietary vitamin intake was compared with thiamine and ascorbic acid blood levels in a sample of 38 patients with glaucoma and 12 controls. These patients had a statistically significant lower thiamine blood level than controls (P less than 0.001), but no significant difference was found for ascorbic acid blood levels. Poor absorption of thiamine occurred in the glaucomatous patients in this study.

    Instillation of onion juice into the rat eyes can effectively prevent selenite-induced cataract formation. This effect was associated with increased TA level, SOD and GPX activities in the lens."

    I read something about high dose thiamin at one point, recommended that to someone and it helped. Can't remember of it was 300 mg or 1500 mg
