Macular Degeneration

Macular degeneration is an incurable eye disease. It affects more than 10 million Americans and is the leading cause of vision loss.

Understanding macular degeneration

Macular degeneration develops when the central portion of the retina (the macula) begins to deteriorate. The macula focuses central vision in the eye, allowing us to read, drive, recognize faces, and see fine detail.

When the macula is working correctly, it collects detailed images in the center of your vision and sends them to the brain via the optic nerve. The brain then interprets them as sight. When the cells in the macula deteriorate, the images are received incorrectly and vision problems occur.

The symptoms

The symptoms of macular degeneration depend on whether the disease is in the early, intermediate, or late stages:

  • Early. In the early stages of macular degeneration, your vision likely won’t be affected. However, the disease can still be detected during a regular eye exam.
  • Intermediate. As the disease progresses, you may experience wavy or blurry vision.
  • Late. At its most advanced stage, you may completely lose your central vision.

With macular degeneration, it’s possible to retain your peripheral vision. However, this is not as clear as central vision, so it is very common to be considered legally blind with this disease.

What causes macular degeneration?

We don’t yet know precisely what causes macular degeneration – but we do know that it is a result of both genetics and your environment.

Growing older is the most prominent risk factor for developing the disease, although it is also linked to genes, smoking, diet, and high blood pressure.

Treating macular degeneration with functional medicine

Functional medicine is an extremely effective way to treat macular degeneration. At Angel Longevity Medical Center, our comprehensive “Back to Wellness Program” can be tailored to improve this disease and alleviate symptoms.

Depending on the stage of your macular degeneration, we may recommend a blend of the following treatments:

Chelation therapy

Elevated lead levels are often associated with macular degeneration. As such, we may recommend chelation therapy to bind to the lead and help guide it out of the body.

Light therapy

Laser light therapy has the potential to improve the symptoms of macular degeneration by stimulating circulation and cellular function.

Microcurrent stimulation

Microcurrent stimulation is a one-hour, in-office treatment that improves blood flow, promotes cellular activity, and reduces inflammation. It can also make your eyes stronger, which is a vital part of treating macular degeneration.

IV therapy

Nutritional supplements are very important when treating macular degeneration. As part of your healing program, we will recommend a custom blend of nutrients delivered directly to your blood stream to restore balance to your body.

Ozone therapy

Ozone therapy is a powerful treatment for macular degeneration. For many patients, it can slow the progression of the disease and improve vision.

FIGHT BACK! An Answer to COVID-19

Learn More about boosting your immune system

Covid19 and Your Immune System – A special message from Our Founder, Dr. Anju Mathur

Update March, 22nd:

We remain open to provide crucial services to all our patients and we are welcoming new patients.

Our most important goal is to remain healthy and maintain or build a strong immune system. In an effort to do so, we researched and have found a special test to analyze the overall state of health of your immune system.

A healthy immune system is the only thing that will either keep you from getting Covid19 or if you do contract it, keep the symptoms as mild as possible and the recovery as quick as possible. Because of this, we want to provide the opportunity for you to come in and have the overall health of your immune system tested.

If you are interested in this new blood test to find out what the overall state of your immune system is like, you should contact us right away and make an appointment.

We have negotiated some very special pricing on this test and are including your test and report of findings consultation with Dr. Anju Mathur along with her recommendations to maintain your overall immune health for only $199.

Our doctor has also prepared a special message for you:

Update March, 16th:

In recent weeks we have all seen the news about the Coronavirus and even worse, we have seen blatantly threatening news reports, and our friends and family scared out of their wits.

I urge you not to panic. If you are not sure what to do, contact us and we will help you.

Coronavirus is real, but for healthy people it is not a death sentence. The mortality rate is only relatively high in immune compromised people or with other medical issues. Per Dr. SHIVA Ayyadurai, MIT PhD, “Viruses are NOT what kill & harm us (trillions of them in & around us) - rather the over-reaction of a weak & dysfunctional immune system caused by “underlying pre-existing conditions””… “CDCgov can bring CoronaVirus to its knees fast & stop deaths of seniors & immunocompromised by AT LEAST EQUAL emphasis- NOW - on specific foods & supplements to STRENGTHEN our Immune Systems.”

The best and right thing to do is to build up your immune system to be more resistant. In addition to high dose vitamin C, major autohemotherapy, and ultraviolet blood irradiation intravenous therapy, we are putting together our anti-viral supplement package for you. Call us for details.

Until then, we recommend you use very good hygiene practices:

  1. Wash your hands for 40 seconds with soap and hot water.
  2. Wear a mask if you are sick, coughing or sneezing, or have mucus. (Change mask every day).
  3. Wipe down your phone and doorknobs.
  4. Do not touch your face (eyes, nose, mouth).
  5. Use chemical-free anti-bacterial sprays and wipes (you can use essential oils, apple cider vinegar, or hydrogen peroxide)

Also, I want to share a wonderful anti-viral tea recipe:

Anti Viral TEA Recipe by Dr Mathur

Ingredients:

  1. Fresh Grated Ginger-3 Tablespoons
  2. black whole kernels peppercorns- 20-30 pieces
  3. Cinnamon Stick- 1
  4. Black Cloves- 5-8.

Place all of the above ingredients in 3 cups of water and then boil for 20-30 minutes until the water turns black. Then strain it and drink it with some coconut or Almond milk and palm sugar or stevia.

Remember, these symptoms are treatable. You do not have to freak out. Be smart, keep your immune system healthy.

If you do contract the virus, let us know. Don’t panic, we are here for you.

Find facts instead of hysteria here.

John Hopkins reports 70,000 people have recovered worldwide.

Highest percentage of deaths are from immunocompromised patients and patients over 80 years old.
