Eye Injury Natural Remedies

Eye injuries are best treated medically FIRST and then use natural treatments as a support system. Medicine has become very sophisticated in eye treatment, and natural medicine can also be used when other medicines are ineffective or treatments are not available. I have seen some amazing things happen using natural solutions when medical treatments have failed.

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.
