Review

"Anyone with Eye-Related problems needs this book. Dr. Kondrot talks to us in an easy-to-understand language, gives us many ways to help keep our eyes healthy, and discusses the medical ramifications of macular degeneration simply and in a straight forward manner. It is a joy to have a medical doctor finally embracing the many alternative medicine 'tools' that are out there today in an intelligent manner - and from experience." -- Eileen Naumann, Author of Homeopathy 911

"I just read "Healing the Eye the Natural Way", and it is terrific. The book is organized, factual, and simple yet thoroughly explained with great examples to clarify complex ideas about macular degeneration."

"This is a very practical guide that patients can use to evaluate their condition, make choices and initiate a reasonable program for themselves. Hope reigns eternal, and hats off to you for explaining why it should, on a mind, body and spiritual level that emphasizes self empowerment." (Dahlia Hirsch, MD (Ophthalmologist and Wholistic Doctor)) -- Dahlia Hirsch, MD (Ophthalmologist and Wholistic Doctor)

"When my husband found out that he had Stargardt Macular Degeneration, we were told by our doctor that there was nothing we could do but go home and wait for blindness to set in. I tried to stay positive and searched the Internet for cure. I found some interesting facts and herbs but no real cure. Finally, by the grace of God, I discvered your practice. Without you we would be preparing for a seeing eye dog, Braille lessons, and other life altering changes." -- Robin Buchman, Patient's Wife --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Author

Why another book dealing with alternative medicine and vision problems?? I felt there was a need for a book that goes beyond nutrition, vitamin and mineral thgerapy for the treatment of macular degeneration. Over 20 years of practice have convinced me that there are alternative therapies that can be of great value in the treatment of this disabling condition. I want to share with the reader important information regarding vision therapy, homeopathy, chelation and micro-current stimulation that can change the life and sight of many people. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Given that it is estimated that 13 million Americans are to suffer from Age-Related Macular Degeneration, it is time that someone from the field of medicine step forward into the realm of natural medicine and give us hope. In this book, Dr. Kondrot introduces an alternative approach to help heal macular degeneration at a time that conventional medicine does not have much to offer patients with this diagnosis. Dr. Kondrot has introduced his approach in three main parts in the book. In the first section he teaches the value of a healthy diet, balanced exercise, and stress management. In the 2nd section, he recommends additional nutritional and eye specific herbal supplements to support circulatory and nervous system. And finally in the 3rd section, three revolutionary techniques are introduced: classical homeopathy, chelation therapy and micro-current stimulation. Most of us have herad of chelation therapy in relation to treating heavy metal toxicity or cardiovascular disorders. The idea of chelation therapy as a treatment for macular degeneration will strike most readers as quite novel. Likewise, many will not have heard of Microcurrent Stimulation, an adaption of TENS unit used for pain management, to stimulate eye circulation. In classical homeopathy, a correct constitutional remedy is useful in healing the person as a whole and can bring miraculous outcome when combined with the rest of the mentioned therapies. Patient testimonials are especially compelling. Readers will find this book easy to read because of its' simple language, slightly oversized font and roomy page layout. In addition the upbeat, and friendly tone provides encouragement and support for the readers in the healing process. Resources are helpful to acquire the mentioned products. It is wonderful to know that the material in this book is compiled from years of work and dedication of a respected specialist who has dared to go the distance in this field.

I was absolutely delighted to read Dr. Kondrot's book Healing the Eye the Natural Way. I am a Family Physician, a Homeopathic Doctor, and I have a family history of macular degeneration. This book helps me on all three of those levels. This book presents a sensible and rational, multi-disciplinary, holistic approach to eye health and particularly to macular degenaration. We need more information like that found in this book.

So many people are going blind because they never search for answers. They just take their doctors word for it that nothing can be done. Dr. Kondrot proves them wrong. I proved them wrong. My near vision correction was 2.75, I have done everything Dr. Kondrot says to do. I no longer wear glasses, except to read, my near vision correction is now 1.25. I wish everyone with age related macular degeneration like I have would read his book and follow his advice. I did, I saw Gail Brent, Lac at the Health and Vision Acupuncture Center in San Diego, Ca. for micro-acupuncture for macular degeneration. Gail Brent did more than heal my eyes, I left feeling like a better person. She is a very caring, compassionate healer.

I purchased this book for a family member who is in the early stages of glaucoma, hoping that holistic approaches might reduce the probability of surgery later on. While the book does provide some useful information regarding the importance of selenium, chromium and lutein in the maintenance of eye health, its extremely general information on most topics is almost useless. For example, Kondrot states that it is important to minimize stress and avoid processed foods, both factors in decreasing the body's retention of toxic compounds. However, he also seems to advocate avoidance of large quantities of fluids. This is contrary to his own hypothesis that it is important to clear the body of toxins, and ignores the fact that diabetics(who are a large proportion of his target audience)cannot safely do this for an extended period of time! On the subject of stress relief, his advice is also very general, although not dangerous in its execution. In short, the only truly useful information provided in the book comes in the area of dietary adjustment and the use of mineral supplements. Note: This book would probably be much more useful to individuals with eye disorders who are not afflicted with diabetes.

I would recommend this book to anyone with an eye disease or a potential to have one. This book is exceptionally good for those who are looking for more natural treatment and for those who have been told there is nothing they can do.

The book is great, written by an opthamologist, and he gives advice that you will not hear from standard AMA allopathic doctors. You can't go wrong following the advice, which I myself am now doing. There are no drugs or invase procedures involved. I wish I had started this earlier in life and did not know about this book from years ago. His newest book about 10 essentials to save your eyes is even better and just out 2 years ago.
