Macular Degeneration Program
If you have been diagnosed with macular degeneration, strongly consider coming in for treatment with Dr. Jade. She is a 4th generation acupuncturist, and has developed a unique and powerful program to treat macular degeneration. The Denver Acupuncture Macular Degeneration Program will stop the progression of your disease and reverse some of the damage already done. The bottom line is that your eyesight will improve.
What Is Macular Degeneration?
Macular degeneration is a condition affecting the eyes caused by a breakdown of the macula. The macula is located in the center of the retina, in the area responsible for sharpness of vision. Macular degeneration typically comes later in life and often leads to vision loss.
There are two forms of macular degeneration, dry and wet. The dry type is more common, affecting about 90% of all cases. Thankfully, it is also less severe. The diagnosis for dry type is formed when deposits of yellow colored spots called “drusen” are seen in the eye. Gradual vision loss can occur in the dry type but not as severely as the wet type.
The wet type of macular degeneration occurs when blood vessels beneath the retina start to bleed. This leakage causes damage to the light-sensitive cells in the eye, leading to blind spots. This more severe type of macular degeneration appears 10% of the time.
The following are some early signs of macular degeneration that you can see using an Amsler grid (a printed grid consisting of straight lines vertically and horizontally, with a black dot in the center). Straight lines will appear curved. You may see black spots or patches on the grid. If some of these lines appear wavy or blurred, or there are dark areas in the center, then you may have early signs of macular degeneration.
Denver Acupuncture Macular Degeneration Program – How It Works
Western medicine does not have a cure for macular degeneration. But in our clinic, Dr. Jade has developed a treatment protocol that dramatically slows the progression of the disease. The Denver Acupuncture Macular Degeneration Program uses Chinese acupuncture in combination with Chinese herbs to treat this condition.
The program consists of two acupuncture treatments per week, for 12 weeks. Most patients start seeing improvement in their eyesight after just 3 weeks of treatment. These improvements are verified with better test results on the Amsler Grid. For more severe cases, patients report seeing improvements after 6 weeks.
What You Can Expect
As a patient in the program, you will receive a customized treatment plan fitting your specific eye condition. Your acupuncture treatments will focus on stopping the progression of macular degeneration to improve your vision. Take home ear needles will be inserted once a week to enhance the effects of your acupuncture treatments. You will also be given a patient-specific nutrition plan crafted for your health needs. In addition, Chinese herbs will prescribed to help support the acupuncture you receive and enhance your treatments.
You will most likely see a vision improvement within 3 to 6 weeks. The improvements will continue as your treatments progress.
