YOUTUBE on Palmitoylethanolamide as a natural treatment for glaucoma

Glaucoma operation

Glaucoma operation

Glaucoma can be treated naturally with the supplement palmitoylethanolamide. Early treatment might even reduce needs for operation and eye-drops.

New research points out palmitoylethanolamide has a dual action in glaucoma:

1. It reduces high eye pressure by promoting fluid flow out of the eye, and

2. PEA protects nerve cells and retina cells via its neuroprotective and reparative properties.

In the Youtube the essence of the natural treatment of glaucoma with palmitoylethanolamide has been summarized. Daily dose: 2-3 times 400 mg palmitoylethanolamide.
