Eye Cornea Natural Remedies

The cornea is the outermost transparent layer protecting the eye. The curve of the cornea influences the refraction which determines whether vision is nearsighted or farsighted.

Modern medicine treats cornea problems with various medications and procedures. Always see a professional when corneal problems are suspected.

Using natural supplements of herbs, cell salts, and homeopathic remedies can support the body to heal itself and can be taken along with medications (check with your doctor). For good eye nutrition, use a whole-food natural vitamin from New Chapter. The absorption is better with this type of supplement.

Disclaimer: some drugs and herbs should not be combined.

Natural Healing Protocol: Combining supplements will do more to support your body's ability to function properly than using just one. Use the following remedies for best results -- your ability to heal will depend on the severity and length of time your symptoms have been present.
