Cataracts occur on the second level underneath the outer lens. Cataracts cloud your vision, distort your view, and make it difficult to read and focus. They cannot be helped with glasses.

Fortunately, the condition can be prevented and improved, especially in earlier stages. They can also be improved naturally, but it requires patience as it often takes up to 6 months. Cataracts are blamed on aging; which really means the body becomes nutritionally deficient causing cellular degeneration. Studies have shown that anti-oxidants found in herbs, including beta carotene, vitamins C and E show a reduction of up to 80% in cataract formation. Healing occurs in three stages.

1st stage: stop the degeneration of lens and growth of cataract

2nd stage: tissue will start to receive nutrients to change and repair- at this stage it may seem as if no progress is being made, this is where patience is needed

3rd stage: period of regeneration


Externally: Make tea with 1 capsule of EW – EyeWash formula in ¼ cup boiling water:

– use pure non-chlorine, non-fluoride, or distilled water

– let steep 10 minutes

– strain twice through an unbleached coffee filter or cotton

Put 1 drop in each eye 2 -4 X/day using a clean eye dropper. This works with sunlight, so results are improved if you ‘sun’ your eyes: do not look directly at sun, but gently rock your head side to side opening your eyes just out of direct sun. You may experience a lot of discharge in A.M. This appears to draw the mucous through the lens to clear it.

Keep refrigerated. After 3 days discard or drink, as the herbs have other internal benefits.

*EW (Eye Wash) Bayberry, goldenseal, red raspberry and eyebright combination.  Eyebright strengthens all tissues of the eye, is antiseptic and helps clear vision. Bayberry and Raspberry are mild astringents, and Golden Seal is a natural antibiotic that also helps clear up mucous.

Available in the US, and in Canada through Sunshine Direct, or  from Benoit & Associates Health.


Silver Guard  is an easier solution that is also effective for cataracts. Spray or drop Silver solution directly in the eyes 1- 4 times per day. Drinking silver internally 1-2 tsp. once or twice per day can speed up the process. Do not be put off by Health authorities labeling it as a mouthwash – a technicality – and you can read about the benefits of Silver in many past articles and successes.

With Silver Guard, you can expect improvement in eyesight very quickly, especially if you have very dry eyes or bacterial or viral infection.

Cataracts that are very progressed are more difficult to reverse, but the surface of the eyes and the clarity of the lens can be improved with silver use.

And lastly, the old time expression “here’s spit in your eye” has meaning, as saliva has enzymes which can help dissolve deposits.
