Protect your eyes from the sunlight Sun light increases the risk of developing macular degeneration Studies have shown that people who spend a great deal of time outdoors are twice as likely to develop macular degeneration A good pair of sunglasses which block 100% of UVA and UVB and block at least 85% of blue violet sun rays

Step2 Feast for your eyes You should shift your diet away from meats and dairy towards a largely vegetarian diet that includes cold water fish and eggs Colorful foods will give you colorful vision! (contains carotenoids) There is evidence that this type of diet will help in weight reduction, reduce the risk of arteriosclerotic vascular disease, lower blood pressure, reduce the incidence of diabetes, and improve circulation to the eye

Step 6 Feed your macula Eat colorful foods to maintain good color vision Two important carotenoids are lutein and zeathanthin They are needed to maintain the macula lutea. Protect the eye against photo-induced damage Studies show that animals deprived from this pigment develop macular degeneration.

Studies show that animals deprived from this pigment develop macular degeneration.

Step 7 Supplement your diet Antioxidants deactivate or neutralize free radicals; examples are Vitamins C, E, beta-carotene and the minerals selenium and zinc. Average American diet is deficient in antioxidants. One cannot receive high enough doses of antioxidants from diet.

Step 9 Chelation Therapy: Improve circulation to the eye “ Hardening of the arteries” and free radical damage contribute to macular degeneration Chelation improves blood flow to the eye, allowing the retina to receive more oxygen and nutrients It also reduces the effects of atherosclerosis

“ Hardening of the arteries” and free radical damage contribute to macular degeneration

Chelation improves blood flow to the eye, allowing the retina to receive more oxygen and nutrients

It also reduces the effects of atherosclerosis

Mechanism of Chelation Removes toxic heavy metals from the body Inhibits free radical activity in the body (Acts as a powerful antioxidant) Removes excess calcium/ plaque from blood vessels and improves blood flow

Chelation Therapy Many reports of patients who have an improvement of vision after Chelation therapy The “InsideLine” has reported in many instances, IV Chelation therapy has been known to correct and reverse AMD. Dr. Harold Byer has reported good results in using Chelation for macular degeneration.

Dr. Harold Byer has reported good results in using Chelation for macular degeneration.

Chelation Therapy Dr. Morton Walker in his book, “The Chelation Way” states the following: “Chelation therapy appears to bring back the circulation to such affected vision and improves it (macular degeneration) better than any other therapy now available- better even than eye surgery”.

Why Is Chelation Therapy Not More Widespread? Chelation threatens to substantially reduce the cost of health care ( Profits ) No potential profit for the pharmaceutical industry Not a big money-maker compared to open heart surgery. Not covered by most Insurance.

Advantages of the OMCS Unit A double channel unit that will create 4 different frequencies, which in theory is 4 times the healing power of a single channel unit. Digital System; computer measuring skin resistance, instead of feedback loop, erratic current flow. 40 microamps for optimum delivery at the cellular level Automatic easier to use Pin Hole glasses. No feeling of current or tingling.
