HERBAL REMEDIES: Herbal preparations for astigmatism
Phytotherapy in the treatment of astigmatism
Phytotherapy in the treatment of astigmatism involves using a number of plants that are intended to protect eye cells, improve circulation to the eyes and reduce eye strain. Among them, we mention the following:
- Chamomile: (Matricaria chamomilla) (15-minute infusion of a spoonful of dry flowers in a cup of water. Wet a gauze and apply it on the eyes) Do not use in case of allergic conjunctivitis or hay fever.
- Blueberry (Vaccinium myrtillus) It may help reduce stress for its anti-inflammatory effects on the eye capillaries. (Infusion of a spoonful of dried plant per cup of water. Three cups a day) (Eat blueberries into jam)
- Nettle (Urtica dioica) for its ability to improve blood circulation, it can help to facilitate the arrival of components suitable for eye health. For its anti-inflammatory, like blueberry or horsetail, it reduces eye strain. (Infusion of a teaspoon per cup of water. Drink 2 cups daily.) (Decoction of 60 g of dried plant per liter of water. Apply a wet compress over the eyes)
- Horsetail (Equisetum arvense) It has anti-inflammatory properties as well as reduces eye strain. (Make eye washings with towels soaked in the liquid from the decoction for 10 minutes of 100 g of dried plant in a liter of water)
