What are the ulterior glaucoma symptoms? The answer is so simple, it is outstanding. The simple answer, oxidative stress secondary to genetic predisposition.
Before all the other symptoms, there is one simple underlying cause. This cause is made worse by those with a genetic predisposition.
So if family members have or had glaucoma, then you are at risk. If you are at risk it is essential to boost the antioxidant capabilities of your body. How to do this is quite simple. It starts with a wholesome diet. By wholesome, we are referring to the raw food diet. Everything we need can be found in uncooked vegetables and fruits.
Next, there are supplements that will help. Before looking more into this, consider what the science says. These are only a few of several articles in peer reviewed medical journals.
Oxidative stress Oxidative stress and glaucoma: injury in the anterior segment of the eye.
In Progress in Brain Research 2008;173:385-407.
The study pointed out that within our bodies, the pro-oxidant/antioxidant balance gets weaker as we age. The ongoing changes and challenges affect the eyes.
These changes introduce or produce both free radicals and reactive oxygen species into the aqueous humor, vitreous humor, the trabecular cells and in the cells of the optic nerve. The findings suggest, the authors said, "…that intraocular pressure increase, which characterizes most glaucomas, is related to oxidative and degenerative processes …"
"This supports the theory that glaucomatous damage is the pathophysiological consequence of oxidative stress."
In other words, Glaucoma is the result of both free radical damage and reactive oxygen species.
The authors also said that genetic factors contribute to the process. Genetics could make a person more prone to getting primary glaucoma.
It is the oxidative stress that is primarily the cause of glaucoma-associated lesions.
When the blood flow is diminished as a result of increased pressure, the tissues experience hypoxia. This may also contribute to the induction of oxidative damage.
The conclusion wast that …"on the whole, these findings support the hypothesis that oxidative damage is an important step in the pathogenesis of primary open-angle glaucoma and might be a relevant target for both prevention and therapy."
Mutation Research. 2006 Mar;612(2):105-14. Epub 2006 Jan 18. The authors wrote that there is more and more evidence that reactive ive oxygen species (ROS) are the main reason for the development of primary open angle glaucoma (POAG). Glaucoma is the leading cause of reversible blindness world wide.
They stated that it is oxidative DNA damage that is most notable in those with glaucoma compared to those who do not have glaucoma.
They cited the proof for this and noted that the TM (trabecular meshwork) carries on remarkable antioxidant activities. These activities are mainly with superoxide dismutase-catalase and glutathione.
Like the previous article, they felt the vascular changes contribute to the resulting oxidative damage. They identified two solutions.
1) Identify individuals at risk to prevent the disease in and ...
2) Test antioxidant drugs for POAG management.
We don’t need to wait for a drug. We have antioxidant foods and supplements that will help our bodies to create glutathione and protect our eyes.
Many are already doing just this. Glaucoma induced blindness is treatable. Our eyes can be protected. The question is, will you do it now or later? The simple truth of the glaucoma symptoms being from oxidative stress tells us what we need to do. Boost our bodies internal antioxidants.
Eyes Glutathione (2 of 6) Treating the Ulterior Glaucoma Symptoms.
The Glutathione Glaucoma Cure (1 of 6) There are scientific studies on PubMed about just this. Is there really a cure?
Visit our sister site: WaterCures.org This will not only help you build glutathione, it is practically free and is essential to boosting glutathione in your body.

The Way to Make More GSH For Free
Glutathione has a high affinity for water. Simply put, if we are dehydrated our bodies may not make as much as they could. Or, what we do make may be less effective.
Usually there is something more than just being dehydrated. Often there is a condition called fluid and electrolyte imbalance, less than bodies needs. There is a simple, easy and inexpensive way to correct this, allowing your body to produce even more GSH.
The Water Cures Protocol really works. Give it a try today.
It is simple, easy, sustainable and affordable (the salt should cost less than $10 a year).
And like GSH, it will help with over 76 different diseases and conditions.
