Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat Disorders
|A close connection
Anyone who has suffered from allergies or even caught a common cold, knows how closely the eyes, ears, nose and throat are connected. This connection goes very far back into our past, when our ancestors still lived in the sea, when living on land was not even a remote speculation. This is the only explanation for the absurd crossing of our breathing and eating channels at the beginning of the throat, which often chokes you when you try to eat and breathe simultaneously. It is an old and close connection, with the result that a problem in one of these organs is often reflected in the others.
The dietary link
Obviously, there is a large number of disorders associated with the eyes, ears, nose and throat, ranging from conjunctivitis, cataracts and glaucoma, to cornea, lens, retina, and optic nerve disorders, to hay fever, sinus problems, and many others. Many eye problems are caused by free radical damage. In the case of cataracts, the damage is to some sulfur proteins in the lens, because of inadequate levels of superoxide dismutase, catalase, glutathione, vitamins A and C and selenium in the tissues.
But all these can be made available through the appropriate diet. Cataracts are known to improve dramatically with the right nutrition. Ear and nose disorders on the other hand, are most often caused by a variety of allergies. In the case of children, the allergy is frequently to milk, and understandably it keeps recurring as long as nothing is done to alleviate the allergy. Here again correct nutrition can be of great help.
