You are what you eat!

Good medicine assesses the entire person rather than focusing on separate body systems.  Good medicine focuses on prevention and looks to correct the root cause of illness through diet, nutrition and lifestyle.

Scientific literature has told us for a long time that fruits and vegetables are the most important fuel we can put in our bodies to make a difference in terms of prevention and health. We now also know that nutrition plays a significant part in preventative eye health as well. Zeaxanthin and lutein (carotenoids found in dark leafy veggies) are now recommended for macular degeneration; omega-3 fatty acids are shown to have significant preventative benefits for dry eye and glaucoma.
