Ayurvedic Healing for Eye Diseases: A Comprehensive Guide

The human eye is the most important sense organ, intimately connected with the brain. It is highly sensitive and plays a crucial role in our day-to-day lives. Unfortunately, eye diseases like myopia, cataract, glaucoma, and retinopathy have become increasingly common due to several factors, such as long working hours at computers, poor eating habits, insufficient sleep, stress, and inadequate head positions while reading or watching TV.

Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of medicine, offers effective methods for treating most eye diseases. Ayurvedic doctors diagnose eye problems based on factors like the patient's lifestyle, daily habits, exercises, genetic information, stress levels, and other personal information. The doctor then plans a personalized course of treatment using Ayurvedic methods and medicines.

Ayurvedic Advice for Eye Health

Ayurveda recommends yoga eye exercises as a gentle and effective way to prevent vision problems.

Certain foods like apples, sprouted chickpeas, carrots, almonds, green lettuce, vegetables, and wheat bread can help improve the quality of vision.

Avoid sun exposure, steam baths, and consuming greasy, spicy, and acidic foods. Protect your eyes from pollution and dust.

The Ayurvedic approach to treating eye diseases is based on balancing the Pitta dosha, which is related to the element of fire. Pitta dosha imbalance is a significant factor in the development of eye problems. Shalakya Tantra is a specialized Ayurvedic knowledge for treating diseases of the neck and organs.
