WHERE CAN I ACQUIRE THIS HERB?
Appreciate if we can get some information as to where we can procure this plant and how it grows. Thanks
Peperomia Pellucida is called Toyakandha and Varshabhoo in SANSKRIT, Mashitandu Chedi in MALYALAM. It grows in wasteland, along roadside throughout India and western ghat OF Maharastra during rainy season. Though used in Ayurvedic medicine I could not find any formulation yet. Try Ayurvedic medical stores in the south.
Based on the picture, this weed grows in my backyard. How is it used for cataracts? I have a cataract on my right eye which I want to remove. Do I squeeze the juice into my right eye? Or do I just eat the weed?
Hi, This is Richard Young again. Thank you for your “caution”. Unfortunately, it was not the answer I was looking for. I repeat my question about peperomia use. How do you use it for cataracts? Do you squeeze it on to your eyes or what?
I am seeing my eye doctor to have him set up an appointment for the eye surgeon to have my cataracts removed. I would like to try this remedy. How do you go about it? Do you put it right on your eye? Thanks, this is the first time I have ever seen your site and I can’t tell you how much time I have spent on it. It is in my favorites to visit again and again.
Cataracts and piperomia Pellucida: No answers yet on how to use this herb?
It seems that in Ayurveda, Peperomia pellucida “Skiny Bush” (its common english name) is it only used for infectious diseases of the skin. Although it is now being study as a possible anti arthritis drug its not traditionally used for that nor eye diseases. It is used in Africa for eye diseases and in Creole Medicine (Trinadad) for its antibacterial properties. As far as use for eye diseases it seems that the milky juice from stem and leaves are used traditionally for eye diseases. So tablet form may not benificial nor is it available that i can see so far?
Any natural cateract treatment like this must include cleansing dietary protocol to be totally effective. All forms of topical eye treatment for cateracts will fall short unless internal toxins are addressed.
There is a fantastic book in India called “Health in your Hands” By Devendra Vora which details a Cateract cure using a holistic protocol. He claims that poor flow of blood and “electricity”, pituitary gland damage, and local lymph gland toxicity causes Cateracts. The sugar toxins that build up in the eye are not removed and “throw of carbon”. The carbon causes this transparency! He also states that excess heat that accumulates in the liver has built up and due to suppression of fever and common cold etc. over the years with modern pharma drugs the heat never gets released from the body so over time the liver overheats. This goes in check with the Traditional Chinese Medicine view very well! Liver=Eyes!
Rx: Triphala powder internally as a eye wash diluted in water overnight acts to cure the problem combined with drinking colloidal mineral waters combined with hand reflex and local eye area acupressure treatment. Also cleansing diet of green juices and whole foods. Eye exercises are included such as looking into the sun at sunrise/sunset and doing eye rolling exercises and palming. He also mentions urine therapy also which was used by Indian Prime Minister Desai for his cateract problem.
At present i have given this treatment to several patients which is similar as above but more simple and easier to understand the complicated explanation in the book. At present there has been complete reduction of worsening of the condition and improvement is occuring but its not happening overnight.
Cataract: Just eat Peperomia pellucida raw on empty stomach or boil and drink the water.
I have 2 questions for Dr J from Bombay.
1) What is the cause of cogenital cataract. 2) My daughter was born with. Docs removed the lens to remove the cataract. Is there any possible way to improve her vision as docs say that they can fix lens but she still needs to wear glasses to fix far off vision. Please help.
To Guest Mother from Toronto, according to leading Sydney eye surgeon Richard Rawson, lens implants of different focus can be used, one side for distance and the other eye for near vision which generally avoids the need for glasses. Apparently the brain selects the correct focus at any distance automatically. He also discourages the use of variable focus implant lenses as they do not work and cause glaring.
Thank you so much for the reply. In my daughter’s case, cataract was there only in one eye. Her right eye is completely normal with good eye sight. So the problem of near and far vision is only for left eye. Please advise if the strategy will work in this case too.
Seeds are available from this site: http://www.tropilab.com
I am writing to ask Prairieboy if basic planting, etc is best for these seeds. Do they need lots of water or little? Thank you so much for giving us this means to secure the plants.graceNmercy
Galactosemia Causes Congenital Cataracts most of the time! The Dairy products you eat during Pregnancy! Termed Galactosemic cataract!!!!
WARNING regarding the testimonial for this herb and it supossedly curing cataracts (posted 6/20/2008 from a Tan Koon Peng) which stated: “Two weeks later she felt that her eyes were painful, she immediately rub her eyes and to her surprise the thin films covering her eyes were on her finger and her vision is clear once again. ”
CATARACTS ARE NOT A SURFACE CONDITION OF THE EYE – they are a clouding of the “lense” of the eye which sits behind the Iris and Pupil. (the above is a physical impossibility!!! )
As an FYI – I have spent many years researching cataract causes/hopeful cures. I had my 1st cataract surgery when I was 35 yrs old. As with any disease I believe there is a necessity to understand the “cause” which is often (and still is in my case) a mystery. Even with all the doctors I visited (and got educated from) the most valuable information I gathered was from NORD (the National Organization for Rare Disorders). I believe they list/describe about 19 different Cataracts. Though cataracts are far from “rare” the knowledge and descriptions listed there could educate more than a few of the doctors I have seen over the years and definitely enlightened me on my quest for a cause and a cure. YES, you do have to pay for any reports you order (this site is aimed at assisting Docs/medical community as well) but in my case it was well worth it and didn’t cost that much!
Warning: If you have had cataract surgery, do not ever use any eye-drop remedy containing DMSO. DMSO is a powerful solvent and will cloud your new plastic lenses and your eyesight will become worse. In fact, even if you use DMSO drops in only one eye, it will affect your other eye.
