In glaucoma the pressure in the eyeball gets too high, putting pressure on fragile retina cells that do your seeing. The first question to ask is: “Is my blood pressure too high?,” because there is a link between high blood pressure and elevated eyeball pressure.
Your blood pressure should be 120/80. Your doctor may say 140/85 is “not high.” He or she is kindly refraining from giving you drugs until this level of pressure is reached. It is your tip-off, though, that something is not right and you should correct it now, when it is easy, and before other damage is done. Read the section on high blood pressure (page 210) to learn how to reduce it by going off caffeine, checking for cadmium poisoning from your water pipes, and cleansing the kidneys (page 549). Even though your doctor has explained how the tiny tube draining your eyeball is too narrow, you should ask: was it not too narrow before high blood pressure struck? Simply getting your blood pressure to normal is sufficient help for beginning glaucoma.
Antonia Guerrero, age 51, had glaucoma for five years and was deteriorating rapidly. She cleansed her kidneys, killed parasites and changed her diet to the anti-arthritic one since she also suffered from arthritis in her hands for ten years with painful enlarged knuckles. She didn’t get relief from taking aspirin. She got rid of her asbestos toxins by bringing her own hair blower with her to the hairdresser. After seven months she had pain relief for her arthritis (without aspirin) and her glaucoma was pronounced stable by her ophthalmologist.
