Keratoconus Treatment

Keratoconus Overview

Keratoconus is a degenerative disorder of the eye in which structural changes within the cornea cause it to thin and change to a more conical shape than its normal gradual curve. Despite considerable research, the etiology of keratoconus remains somewhat of a mystery. Keratoconus likely arises from a number of different factors: genetic, environmental or cellular, any of which may form the trigger for the onset of the disease. People that have keratoconus often also have allergies. Hayfever, skin allergies, and asthma are common. This indicates the immune system has been compromized in people with Keratoconus.

Keratoconus Treatment Considerations

A treament protocal for Keratoconus would involve detoxification to remove any toxicity factors. A genetic predisposition to keratoconus has been observed there for any successful treatment would have to boost cellular integrity and boost immune performance. Supplementation should include natural juices (organic if possible), herbs, and supplement with possible benefits to eyesight.

Keratoconus Treatment Recommendations

    30 to 40 day juice fast

Reason For Recommendation: Proven theraputic result and the most effective means to destoxify the body.

Keratoconus Treatment Supplementation

Barley Green Powderer: 1 tablespoon per day.

Reason For Recommendation: I new a man who stated he had eyesight problems that was cured but taking barley green powder. (Melaluca Brand.)

Raw Eggs: dosage 2 per day that can be blended with the juice. Organic free range where possible. Risks: Salmonella A study by the U.S. Department of Agriculture in 2002 (Risk Analysis April 2002 22(2):203-18) It showed that of the 69 billion eggs produced annually only 2.3 million are contaminated with salmonella—equivalent to just one in every 30,000 eggs.

Reason For Recommendation: The best source for Lutein is the egg yolk, followed by green vegetables such as Spinach, and broccoli. Egg yolks also have zeaxanthin to protect eyesight. Lutein is found to be most helpful with macular degeneration. High in lecithin that is crucial for cellular integrity.

Lecithin Capsules: 8 per day with selenium.
Reasons For Recommendation: Lecithin is a phospholipid meaning it has a phosphate part and a lipid part. This means that it has both water loving and water hating parts which makes it great for use in the body in places like the mucous membranes. Lecithin is necessary for the healthy function of every bodily cell. Lecithin is one of the major components of the cell membrane, that thin semi-permeable layer that envelope the surfaces of cells.

Keratoconus Treatment Supplemenation

Barley Green Powder 1-2 tablespoon per day. Reason For Recommendation: I new a man who stated he had eyesight problems that was cured but taking barley green powder, Melaluca Brand.)

B2 (riboflavin) A treatment developed at the Technische Universität Dresden, and which has shown early success is Corneal Collagen Crosslinking with Riboflavin, also known as CXL, CCR, and CCL. A one-time application of riboflavin solution is administered to the eye and is activated by illumination with UV-Alight for approximately 30 minutes.[28][47] The riboflavin causes new bonds to form across adjacent collagen strands in the stromal layer of the cornea, which recovers and preserves some of the cornea’s mechanical strength. The corneal epithelial layer is generally removed in order to increase penetration of the riboflavin into the stroma.

A deficiency of vitamin B2 (riboflavin) may result in bloodshot eyes, abnormal sensitivity to light, itching and burning of the eye. Clearly there is a relationship between vitamin B2 and eyesight.

Sources of B2

Foods rich in riboflavin are green vegetables such as lotus stems, turnip greens, beets, radish leaves, colocasia and carrot leaves. Fruits such as papaya, raisins, custard apples and apricots are good sources of Vitamin B2 but only apples should be used on a juice therapy. The others food would be part of a post treatment diet. Deficiency of vitamin B2 (riboflavin) may result in bloodshot eyes, abnormal sensitivity to light, itching and burning of the eye.

Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) Overdose, Toxicity, Side Effects: There is no known toxicity to riboflavin. Because riboflavin is a water-soluble vitamin, excess amounts are easily excreted by the body in the urine. Possible reactions to very high doses may include itching, numbness, burning or prickling sensations, and sensitivity to light. Excess riboflavin excreted in the urine causes it to become bright yellow in color, which many people notice when they take B vitamin supplements.

Non Surgical Options

Intacs are tiny, clear ring segments that are inserted into the cornea to provide stabilization and a more natural cornea curve.

    Hi, thanks for linking me to this page Tom. I’m going to buy the supplements over the weekend so I can start the treatment on Monday.

    A quick question, the b2 riboflavin, do you recommend I buy a supplement? And how much per day?

    Also what kind of fruits and vegs should I juice, and how much per day?

    I will try to make a log if I can figure it out, or do you set one up for me?

    • Tom Coghill says:

      Hi Samuel
      The about of B2 was where I left off. Seems like there are no know toxicity levels. Not sure. There is lots in the eggs but B2 is a key factor. I would start at a lower does and increase. I need to find who has used B2 therapeutically. Or any case studies or published research. This treatment protocol will be ongoing. We can add to it. This was my basic research. Juice amount … just listen to your body. Once you start your body will guide you. You can juice any mix fruits and veggies. I am trying to research the ones that have had any therapeutic results for any eye condition. The shotgun approach to natural healing. If you are successful others can follow your version of the protocol. If we can have dramatic cancer cures, and with so many disease why not Keratoconus. If you want to help with the research that would be great. The fact that you are only affected in one eye rules out genetic factors. It may be infection triggered. That could account for the localized breakdown of cell wall integrity. I also need research on that with some searches like “candida eyesight”. Or any connection between Keratoconus and bacteria or fungi. If so it has penetrated deep into the tissue. Do you have any other symptoms that would indicate Candida or chronic infection. I think fungi reduction needs to be part of the program. You would be looking at a daily enema with salt and sodium bicarbonate. I just did a page on it just do a site search for sodium bicarbonate. What country are you in?

  2. Samuel says:

    Sorry I should have given a brief Medical history. I Live in England.

    I have Kerataconus in both eyes, and use Rigid Gas Permeable contact lens to manage, I cannot see very well without them. The kerataconus has progressed and got worse slightly over the years, and I am now very sensitive to light, and cannot leave the house on a sunny day without a cap or sunglasses.

    I started to wear Glasses at the age of 5 (Five), and my eyesight has deteriorated slightly ever since. I got diagnosed with kerataconus at the age of 18. I am now 24, and my eyes prescription is approximately -9 in the right and -6.5 in the left.

    I have Hayfever and dust allergies, and come to think of it, hayfever started to get worse at the same time I was diagnosed with kerataconus.

    I also had a little eczema type rash on my left knee cap since I was about 15, it was approx an inch in size, it grew extremly slowly, and i ignored it for years. I eventually went to the doctor, who prescribed a few things, until a final steroid based cream called hydrocortizone (I think) made it totally disappear, or atleast for a while. About 6 months or so later, a similar thing has appeared on the back of my neck, been there for 2 years, and i once again have ignored it. I dont know what it is or what it called, it does not itch at all, nor has it spread, kind of cropped up over night.

    Other than that I had a very mild case of athletes foot, which has pretty much cured using “Daktarin”.

    Also, every once in a while, I get a similar thing to the thing on the back of my neck, appear on the bottom of my rib cage, a small 1cm sized thing on either side at the bottom of my ribs, it stays only a few days, and is gone for a year or so.

    There is no other medical history I can think of, I dont know if these are fungal or candida/chronic etc, hopefully you can understand them better than me.

    I have ordered some of your recommended supplements and a few extra, should have them midweek.

    -barley green powder
    -Udo’s choice essential oils
    -vitamin B2 50mg tablets
    -Soya lecithin 1200mg capsules
    -Selenium 200µg
    -Eyewise (Lutein 10mg, zeaxanthin 400µg, Bilberry (as a 4:1 extract) 200mg, Blackberry (as a 4:1 extract) 200mg, Grapeseed (as a 20:1 extract) 500mg)

    Are the above any good? recommended dosage?

    I also have some Cayenne pepper capsules which I filled myself, and have about 400 grams or so of Spirulina powder, would any of these be benificial?

    I will start juicing tomorrow to get back into the swing of things, (finished a 5 day fast a few days ago), and wait until the tablets etc get delivered and start a treatment protocol you recomended. I would love to help with your research, by posting a daily progress report if necessary.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Hello Guys

    I would like to take part in your study – some history about me

    I am 43 years old and was diagnosed with Kerateconus 3 years ago Actually “Kerateconus Actesia” meaning “after lasik” surgery. I had lasik when I was 33 years old and it took over 10 years for this deasease to show it’s ulgly head. I knew there was a problem prior to being diagnosed as my vison would go “in and out” and docs said nothing wrong over and over again.
    It would go “in and out” based on what I eat, stress etc.. almost instantly. I do feel there is a direct correlation here as it still does this today.

    Based on todays data, I would not be a candidtae for Lasik. I had no idea that I had a thin cornea & was “borderline” at best in those days.. If would have known this, I would never had the surgey.

    since then, I went to Mexico- where I had R2 (riboflavin crosslinking)treatment in both eyes. I think it has “halted” the deases to a point. . I think my left eye has gotten a little worse since then and I am due for a check up.
    My left eye is still good, my right eye is bad – soft contacts do not work and I cannot wear hard lenses. I just rely on my left to do everything

    I have an entacs in my right eye (1). At first the doc put (2) entacs…after fasting and taking vitamens, he removed (1) entac. I asked why? he could not give me an explanantion

    I am sold on the fact we can heal this naturally… I have has lots of personal & business issues over the last 2 years and have droped my focus on healing my self. I feel my left eye is starting act up and I need to make this priority No 1

    I am on board starting today.. today I had 1/2 dozen raw eggs and had 3 servings of raw vege juice.. thats it DAY 1. I actually feel pretty good? During the day I was sleepy, went for a workout and now I feel terrific? I typically feel awfull when doing a juice fast..with the eggs added..not so bad

    questions I have

    1/ I like to work out – is this ok to work out hard while on this diet?

    2/ I am juicing carrots, broccoli, celery, spinach – with most of the juice spinach. Also, I juice genger root and drink it down like a shot
    Is this OK?

    3/ I bought R2 supplement, pretty much all vitamens that is listed here.. will it all get digested if I am eating no real food?

    4/ I must travel with my job starting this Frday..its extremely difficult to pull this off. I am thinking of eating raw commercial eggs ( no free range) and take my chances. What do you reccomend as far as the juicing part? what is a replacement? I notice my body likes the real stuff.. none of these powders do anything for me

    5/ I dont have good will power when it comes to food..I would wlecome anyone who wants to fast with me to make some accountability here

    again, Tom – thanks for sending me your links.. This was perfect timing as I was searching the net for things like this

    if anyone has any questions, feel free to ask

    Mike

  4. Tom Coghill says:

    Hi Samuel,
    Based on the fact your hayfever started to get worse at the same time you were diagnosed with kerataconus indicates that your immune system is compromised and that may be due to fighting a systemic infection like candida. I would stay away from the fruit juices except blueberry. Dosage needs some research. Therapeutic dose is much higher than daily need. I would take a a standard amount then double and triple it.
    The one drawback with raw eggs can be deadly farts. And it looks like Mike could be your buddy on this climb.

  5. Tom Coghill says:

    Hi yesman300 Mike,
    So glad you are along for the ride. On very interesting thing that you said was that after a fast there was an improvement of the condition. How long was the fast and what type.
    / I Yea you can do brutal workouts.

    2/ That a good choice of juice mixes.

    3/ With the juice or blended eggs it will digest.

    4/ I would take the 1/30,000 chance of salmonella. Alternative would be natural juices if you are on the road but they will not sustain your energy.

    5/ Samuel is you Buddy for sure.

  6. Samuel says:

    Hi tom,

    I have been researching candida, and I’m afraid it fits. Make a lot of sense, seems I have had it for years. What juices do you recommend I take? What is a standard dose of blueberries juice?

    Also tom what do you mssg of my supplements? I’m thinking of starting something tomorrow, should I take only Blueberry juice and water, along with 2 raw eggs per day, and ofcourse the supplement?

    Please advise so I can start ASAP.
    Thank you

    Mike, sorry to hear about your condition, did your previous juice fast improve your condition? And by how much?

    I’m more than willing to be your fasting buddy. Should we exchange email addresses?

    • Tom Coghill says:

      Hi Samuel
      Your supplement list makes sense to me. Although many of the supplements and juicing has a long history of treatment, combining treatments to increase therapeutic results will be a test basis. I am through concepts on the table. What you decide on will be the development and testing. In the future others may follow the protocol being constantly developed or follow your system or Samuels. Out of that we get case studies and a baseline of results to improve on. Wikipedia did this for knowledge. Same system but for holistic disease treatment. The one thing I always say is to follow your body and gut instinct. I sent a cancer protocol to a friend in Papua New Guinea. He has a gut instinct to add a herb. He told me why and I said go for it. The result, wow, in 10 days, out of bed laughing and being normal. So be bold.

  8. yesman300 says:

    hello guys

    I suffered with yeast problems for many years. I had skin peeling on my eye lids, mouth, it was very bad.. traditional docs gave me predisone (steroids) which only made it worse. tradtional docs did not diagnose as yeast

    I went to a natural doc and he put me on a yeast free diet.. and yeast killing vitamens. That worked a little, but still no resolution. Then I went to another natural doc..he put me on an introvenuis drip. It was vitamens and “bug killer” as he says.. this finally killed off the yeast. ( everthing natural)

    now and then I will get rashes on the left and right side of lower stomach..not sure is if this is the kideney area or not..

    I wonder if this problem helped out in getting Keratoconus.. my battle with yeast took many years. I may still have it, but it does not show up on my skin anymore – except occasionally around my stomoach

    regarding your question – I took Garlic & Ginger (raw), with mixed greens – dont remember clearly – only a few days of fasting. I had a very clean diet with “eyeplex” The shape of my eye got better because of entact taken out..but the overall vision- not real sure if that improved much. I was told by (2) doctors that my eye looked very healthy

    I also took a vitamen from my chiropractor called “eyeplex” I have been taking this for years since my diagnosos. I have a abused my body very badly in the last two years and I am surprised my Keroto has not gone much worse

    I will get an eye test soon and watch everything so I will have accurate data and see what happens

    Mike

    • Tom Coghill says:

      Hi Mike,
      I would be curious what the “bug killer” was. Disease is a wake up call and it can lead to a long and health life. What do you have if you gain the whole world but lose your health. Can you create a home eye test. ( How many images do you see, angle distance from center.)
      The more I study the more I realize the fungi can be a major factor in disease. The Candida cancer connection was the big eye opener. I am working toward a Candida treatment based on know effective treatments.

  9. yesman300 says:

    Sam.. the shape of my cornea improved thus he removed (1) intact. My sight may have improved but not to noticable enough – i felt things sharper & more clear in my good eye.. this was only on a few days of fast.. I was too busy trying to be rich to keep records ( stupid)

    only 24 years old? – you have youth on your side many things affect the immune system like stress – emotional, depression all this stuff..I think we need to make sure all this is in order too

    my e-mail is dillup1@gmail.com feel free to write. You mentioned a 5 day fast – did that help you?

    Day 2

    I felt sluggish this AM because I did not sleep well. i had a drink called “celsius” it has no sugar, no calories, advertised as being healthy for you – dont know – I broke the rule here a bit. it has turine, gaurana, extract green tea, caffine, ginger extract riboflavin, nacin boiton chromim and clacium carbonate ( no preservatives, artifical anything) raseberry acai too.. I took this for a boost. Other than this, I will stick to the fast (www.celsius.com) I dont know if all the vitamens taken before bedtime caused some problem with sleep

    I still feel 10X better with the eggs and I feel I can pull this off.

    I had my vege juice this AM with vitamens, & 4 eggs .. I am taking my vitamens per bottle instructions.. not yet up to volume suggested in this plan

    questions:
    1/ is it ok that I take all required vitamens at one time? with traveling this will be a pain to spread it out during the day on airplanes

    2/ when juicing spinach – i get lots of “foam” as opposed to juice.. I add celery/carrots to make it liquid. I am using the CHAMPION juicer – it filters out the fiber – juice only. Is this OK? when you guys mention juice – are you inlcuding the fiber or just pure juice?

    3/ I do not juice brocoli stems – just the green part. Should I include the stems?

    thx

    Mike

    • Tom Coghill says:

      Hi Mike,
      Better to take the vitamins before 3pm if it keeps you up. Better to take supplement over the day as the blood become a bath of nutrients. Yes juice the broccoli stems. I also filter the fiber with a strainer as the pulp build up in the colon. The drink ingredients are good except for the caffeine. I have used caffeine booster during a fast due to massive workload and no energy but afterworld I feel horrid for 2 days and my blast of productivity get lost. Best is a brisk shower.

      Your youth is in your favor. We treated children with juice fasting, at the hospital, and they recovered in 1/3 of the time on an adult. At first I was nervous about it but when I nine year old who had been plagues with serious lung conditions throughout his life stated to heal, and felt perfectly normal, I felt more at easy. He did 30 days and never got sick again. He was totally healed on day 10. He did the other 20 days because he liked juice fasting. (and he was very strict, just juice) If we did that in the USA, I would be writing from jail with the parents. LOL

  10. Samuel says:

    Day 1.

    My Udos choice and barley grass powder arrived this morning.

    I juiced some lettuce, Garlic, Ginger and 2 handful of blackberries, diluted in water, added some barley grass powder, a tablespoon of udos choice, and proceeded to drink. felt a bit nauseous, but got half way through, then i added an Organic free range egg (which had me puzzled, the white part was a little yellowish, and the yolk was rather light, ive never seen a free range organic before though). So I added the free range organic egg, and added more water, took a few sips, and Vamoossh, it all came out, i vomited it all out, quicker than I had drank it.

    I dont think im going to manage to Drink eggs, and as far as veg juice, I think only cucumber and celery will stay down.

    Tom, I’ve been reading a lot of people say that for Candida treatment, juicing carrots and apples is ok?? Is that the case, I thought carrots had a lot of glucose, and fruits except blackberries were a no go.?

    Also Tom, I dont think i’ll manage to keep raw eggs down, do you think I can make do with the supplements alone for the kerataconus/candida treatment?

  11. Samuel says:

    Oh one other thing, is there any studies or reports/testimonials on people treating weak eye sight with a fast?

    • Tom Coghill says:

      Samuel,
      Nothing I could find. I do remeber a person getting healed in a fasting book but I read it many years ago. To me you have nothing to lose. Fasting has healed or improved a vast number of condition. I just think that no one has applied it yet. Juice fasting is the most powerful for cellular regeneration and that is what is needed to cure Keratoconus.
      I would drink the carrot just as vitamin A does have a connection with eyesight.

  12. Ron says:

    Hello Guys!

    I’ve been reading the posts about candida and wanted to convey some info. My wife had trouble w/ yeast several years ago and did a lot of research, and treatment. Tom, I’m sure she would be happy to talk to you directly about her experience, and results with treatments.

    She read 2 books on the subject from, Dr. William Crook. She had very good results, and is symptom free at this point.

    A few things she mentioned in my brief talk with her is that “all” fruit, sugars, yeast, white rice, flour and some veggies are eliminated for the first few weeks of the treatment due to the glucose levels in them. Also, probiotics are very important in fighting candida! Garlic, and Oregano were 2 of the important herbs in fighting yeast.

    I haven’t done a search on Dr. Crook on the net, but I’m sure his books about yeast/candida are available. Hope this helps some. Ron

    • Tom Coghill says:

      Thanks Ron,
      I have been pondering candida info and one doctor stated that diets only reduces the symptoms. That is about oxygen levels as fungus love low oxygen environment. I wonder if anyone has cured candida through exercise. Oregano and garlic for sure should be in the protocol. Looking at hydrogen peroxide, but to me it does not make sense.

  13. yesman300 says:

    excerise and yeast – in my experience NADA.. I worked out hard while fighting yeast and I think in some cases made it worse. I was running 5ks in good shape with skin peeling and bubbling!.( i think tear down of immune during excerise may do this?? just a guess) I would put oregano on my face and body directly to help stop the itch. Burned like hell ..I feel for anyone battling this and people who dont have it will not understand. My ex would rub up against me and she ended up getting it on her arms ( but not any perm problem)

    The yeast free diets are so difficult. Since you are sufferring anyway – just fast! it’s less complicated.. and probably more effective. I was in Ukraine on a business trip when I had this problem and a doctor there told me to water fast for a few days.. I did not listen at the time, but probalbly should have

    7/6 AM Day 3

    forgot to post yesterday.. I woke up a few times during the night but better than previous..

    ate a bag of organic wild blueberries in the middle of the night because I could not sleep ( better than pizza!) So I cheated

    during the day, worked out hard – (weights).. and stuck to the fast with about 8 raw eggs. I started to feel weak in middle of workout ( due to lack of sleep or ???) so I had another can of celsuis. I was pretty good after that. The remainder of the day went well stuck to the plan –

    7/7 AM

    woke up a few times during the night, but much better than night before. I went out this am for a 30 minute run- last 10 minutes were very grueling..nothing left .. something feels wierd about all this. I feel tired but it’s different – I good tired

    I gulped 4 raw eggs & had my juices – i think eating raw eggs is psychological- They don’t taste that bad.

    I am also drinking honest tea – green tea unsweetned throughout the day in place of my usual coffies

    On the mental side, not as sharp and I prefer doing easy things and ignoring whats most important – danger!
    I feel each day will get better – raw eggs are doing it for me i think..we will see.

    Tom I promise to get you my eye stats and get the name of the “bug killer” I know some of the Vitamens inserted directly into my blood stream were B Vitamens.. The peroxide sounds very fimilair and I wonder if he used that too? It took a good 30 minutes or more to get all this stuff in my blood stream via IV..

    • Tom Coghill says:

      Hi Mike,
      Water fasting always reduces Candida by reducing blood sugar many die and other go dormant and revive with higher blood sugar levels. But, a longer water fast with some green juices may give the immune system enough time to kill most of the Candida.
      The point that exercise made your Candida worse suggests that people the concept of hydrogen peroxide boosts oxygen levels is a myth. But that is so easy to check with an oximeter( blood oxygen meter). Maybe some one has done that. Being that the main location for candida is the colon, it makes sense that the salt flush and a enema with sodium bicarbonate and taking probiotic should kill the yeast in the colon. Great to here that you are doing well. I found that I hit the training wall quicker and had to push more but like you said it felt strangely good.

  14. Ron says:

    Hi Mike, A good friend of ours uses plain yogurt spread over her skin on yeast infected areas. Although, neither I nor my wife have ever tried it. But, probiotics being a yeast fighter it does make some sense. I haven’t heard of oregano used topically. Only as an oral remedy.

    My wife was also saying there are 2 medications recommended in Dr. Crooks books, for stubborn cases of candida. We will keep you in our prayers for a complete cure! God Bless, Ron

  15. yesman300 says:

    Some miss-understanding – I do not have yeast symptoms today – I was just sharing my battle with it years back since people were asking about it here on this board.

    Oxygen: I do have a bad case of sleep apnea & I wonder if that had anything to do with oxygen/yeast?

    some questions

    1/ How many raw eggs per day is too many? I am doing 6 or 7 per day when i feel hunger pains.

    2/ it is also noted in your plan that eggs should not be refrigerated.. However all eggs are refrigerated in the store – Question: do we take them home and not refrigerate? sounds like that may not be good for the eggs?

    3/ also, despite all the water I am drinking, I tend to retain water. I went for a run, weighed myself at 199.. as the day wore on I am now at 202. Same goes with the steam room.. where I can see a drop of 3 lbs easily when leaving.. so far, I think I have lost 5.5-6 lbs since the start of this fast if I use the same venue of measure!
    Is this normal?

    I felt very bad today earlier in the day and could not work.. I am doing ok now @ 5:00 PM. I am still not back to the mental power prior to the start of this thing. Physically I can do this – the mental part is still slow, I am forgetful – just alot of effort when trying to concentrate.

    I committed another sin today – I had a 5 hour energy drink and bam I see my vision affected.. the ingredients are not supposed to be bad (except the caffeine).I wonder if caffeine is causing nerves to jingle around the eye?

    the only thing I am doing wrong is and occasional energy drink and green tea.. Everything else is not a problem. My running is limited to 10 minutes, take a break and another 10 minutes.. Weight lifting is OK, but the up and down energy cycles is rampant

    • Tom Coghill says:

      Hi Yesman
      The eggs should be refrigerated. Yea 6-7 is fine. I am testing some theories and using about the same amount. I came up with a great flavor. 4 raw eggs, 1 or 2 teaspoons raw honey, 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon. It is like the best shake on earth. A touch of vanilla extract would be better. Water retention can be due to many factors. Is this a long term condition or recent? I have found that coffee for some can be very destructive to health and caffeine reduce healing capacity. Green tea would be the best choice. Ginseng is also a stimulant.

  16. Samuel says:

    Good day everyone.

    I completed day 1 yesterday (had a friends party the day before).

    Day 1 8th July 2010

    I took 250ml of veg juice (carrot, cabbage, asparagus, cucumber, broccoli, handful of blueberries).

    Vit B2 (Riboflavin) – 1 capsule (50mg)

    Lecithin – 4 capsules (total = 4.8 grams)

    Selenium – 1 tablet (200 mcg)

    Eyewise – 2 tablets (Total = 20mg lutein, 800mcg Zeaxanthin, 400mg Bilberry extract, 400mg Blackberry extract, 1 gram grapeseed extract)

    I researched candida a little more, and am shocked that I have been living with various symptoms for so long. At the age of 5 (when i first started wearing glasses) I had a rash on my eyelids and on my face, it would get better at times, and worse at times. I remember visiting many doctors, but it just disappeared, cant remember how though. I have had patches of scaly dry skin on various parts of my body, first on my knee for 6 odd years, then on my neck for about 2 years, where it is currently presiding.

    I also have hayfever, dust allergies, perfume allergies, chronic fatigue etc etc for the past 6-7 years. And, I have eye floaters to go along with my kerataconus, but I have an optimistic view on life, and am confident I can naturally cure all these.

    Yesterday I felt good, even though I didnt have much juice (250ml in the morning), and the rest of the day I didnt have much water until the evening. I did have slight carbohydrate cravings, but persevered through. I now understand the intense craving I used to have when I did the keto diet (low carb, high protein, high fat, high fibre) were due to the candida.

    A few questions

    1. I had some v8 juice today, its all from concentrate, but contains tomato concentrate (which is a fruit), are tomatoes (juice) off limits for candida?

    2. some people say the following fruit juices are ok for candida juice treatment, can someone please tell me whether they are ok or should I stay away?

    -Apples
    -Lemons
    -Blueberries
    -Blackberries
    -Strawberries
    -Pineapple
    -Limes

    3. Tom, can I use blueberry concentrate, organic, nothing else added? Blueberries are expensive here (approx £15 per kg), and I need to use a substantial amount to get some juice from them.

    Iv been living off about 500ml of blueberry juice (made from organic concentrate) for the last few days. I managed 8 days before i had to go to a party. A friend is getting married so i may not be able to do a long term fast til end of the month. Im going to do another 10 days fast staring today, then take 4 days to break it, to be ready for friends wedding.

    Iv been taking the supplement, Lutein/zeaxanthin, Soya lecithin, selenium, vit B2 regularly, along with half a spoon of Virgin Coconut oil, Xylitol and Meluca Honey every day. I am starting to feel the candida dying off slowly, and feeling better day by day. After 7 days my body was starting to bring back old illnesses/skin rashes etc and they were disappearing next day.

    No difference to eyes yet, but I think (with no basis to this thought btw) that my body must first kill off a number of other diseases/illnesses etc before it get around to the kerataconus. But I have been very busy as of late, and have been documenting all my fast though, will post it all end of month.

    Tom, I have ordered some nano silver, what is the recommended dosage for candida?

      Hi Samuel,
      I am not sure as that depends on the particle size. Follow the direction on the body. The more I study nano silver the more excited I get. We are looking at it for AIDS treatment at a DNA level.
