Emotions that Block

From the pressure in the eyes vision becomes dull - this is the internal pressure. Old resentments, pain in the soul, inability to forgive and forget cause pain to oneself. Internal ducts and roads must be cleared


Glaucoma is eye diseases that lead to loss of vision. It is characterized by a buildup of pressure within the eye that causes damage to the optic nerve – that’s carry information from the eye to the brain. If the optic nerves are weakened, it directly affects the vision.
Unless this pressure is lowered and controlled, the optic nerve and other parts of the eye can be damaged. Risk factors are limited to the onset of the disease and those associated with progressive worsening of the disease. The main risk factors associated with an individual and the onset of the disease are age and genetic predisposition.
Thera are 2 types  of Glaucome: 

  • Open-angle glaucoma, the most common form of glaucoma, accounts for at least 90% of all glaucoma cases

  • Angle-closure glaucoma, a less common form of glaucoma

Ayurveda provide treatment methods that will cure your glaucoma completely.

The main recommendation is to assess the harmful effects of glaucoma, and treatment should be started as soon as possible.  Healing remedies are prescribed by a Ayurveda doctor and applied exactly as prescribed, and the healing procedures and therapies for head and eyes have to be performed only by a licensed Ayurveda specialist.
