What I Learned About Macular Eye Health

Words of Interest from Carol


It is Christmas season and I want to share some Christmas joys with you.

It is a song Mary Did You Know.

The voice in this song is my daughter-in-law, Jenn with piano accompanist, Devin, my son.

I hope this song with its deep meaning brings joy to you as it does to me.

Mary Did You Know by Devin and Jenn Roth,



 TAFYH Evaluation: Natalia

AHHA: In each lesson many different sentences stood out for me, some of them were:  The four root causes of disease, Nutritional deficiencies, toxic overloads, physical trauma, and mental emotional stress.  Our bodies can completely rebuild in a year, wheat, grains, legumes and hydrogenated oils can cause many different issues. Corn, potatoes and starches all turn into sugar and feed candida.  What is also shocking is that even by selecting organic, or whole grains, still does not alter the fact that all grains are toxic naturally.  Another concept that struck me was that our sugar cravings come from low body temperature, drugs, vaccines, heavy metals, bad eating and chemical toxins all contribute to this. The Chinese constitutional elements were really interesting to learn about, and how each element has a purpose in the whole body.  The health of our teeth is important, the correlation of the teeth to our various organs in our body was very interesting.  It was very helpful to learn about the different protocols for emergency situations like heart attacks, burns, bits and wounds. It is amazing that herbs have so much power and effectiveness!  It was a lot of fun to try new recipes, like Nutella and flax crackers, I really enjoy the flax bread as a snack. 

Time: 8:30 in the morning worked really well into my morning schedule, the TAFYH course did not interrupt my schoolwork, the TAFYH course worked so that after morning work I could use TAFYH as a school break, then do my TAG team and exercise.

Education: I loved learning clarity about the foods to avoid and why we should not eat them, each lesson had its own ahha moments, each lesson I learned something new.

Structure: The TAFYH course structure was well organized, I loved the success story at the end of each lesson, and it was nice to be encouraged by everyone’s health achievements. I also liked sharing a sentence from the recent lesson.  The quotes from the end of the lessons were encouraging, my favorite was:  “It is in those times when we are going through the dark tunnel of the unknown that we must believe with the greatest energy of our faith that there is light at the end of the tunnel. It is in those times that we must never quit!”

  Participation: The timing of TAFYH worked so that I was able to participate in nearly every lesson.

Information: The information that TAFYH provides is simple, common sense based, and easy to understand.  The information is built up slowly, and not overwhelming.

Commitment: It was not difficult to add exercise, TAG team reports, cleanses and herbs to my day, this has now become my daily routine. 

Implications: Taking the time to address what we use for home cleaning products is important.  Even the small things like the deodorant we use has aluminum. Aluminum works by clogging up pores and preventing sweating, which is a natural way of expelling toxins from the body. “Many homes have chemical levels 70 times that of outside air. “ In TAFYH we are taught to address our products, and given alternatives.

Success stories: The success stories offered encouragement to keep up the work, and that there really was a light at the end of that tunnel. The stories varied, from many different types of cancer to simple health issues, there seemed like nothing that the nature’s sunshine herbs and TAFYH program couldn’t fix!

Comments:  We are trained and taught to accept a doctor’s advice, we accept without comment a drug with the most health harmful side effects, and we are afraid to try a new path, to research and discover.  I am most grateful for TAFYH, which has taught me that healing takes a program, not a pill.  TAFYH has given me a different perspective on herbs, a more positive attitude, and a program for life.  I am also grateful to Donna, who inspires all of us with her optimism, and varied experience.  My goal now is to be an encouragement to others and an example, just like the success stories were to me, and to encourage my sister to achieve success with her cancer and health. 



Macular Degeneration Katherine Carroll, NTP

The best doctor's recommendations or nutritional consulting for ARMD are fruitless unless nutrients are able to be broken down or micellized, transported to the macula, and assimilated there. After years of observing how some patients prevent ARMD despite strong hereditary tendencies, how some halt or even reverse impending blindness, and how some patients actually get worse despite being on the same protocol, it became clear that powerful tactics were needed in addition to recommending dietary changes or supplements.

The strategies we employ are successful for many individuals and have applications far beyond the diagnosis of ARMD. They will influence conditions or diseases where proper fat breakdown is essential to impact issues such as dry eye, post-cholecystectomy (gallbladder surgery) status, liver disease, etc. The eye, GI tract, liver, and gallbladder are intricately entwined. Think about it, when your liver is sick, your eyes turn yellow or jaundiced. When your GI tract is out of balance, red, itching "allergy" eyes often result. Interesting signaling!  The solution is more complicated than just popping a supplement or even making some dietary changes. Are you ready to learn the secrets? Whether you have macular degeneration or not, these concepts will serve you well.

Best Kept Secret #1: Work from the GI Tract Outward

Some doctors, when pressed if they had only one system to specialize in, would tell you, "The GI tract." Why? Because the GI tract is central to good health and its ability to affect the entire body so powerful when operating at its peak. It is here that we begin to improve vision. The target nutrients used in past studies[1] to prevent, halt, or reverse ARMD are lutein, zeaxanthin, beta-carotene, antioxidants, and fish oil.  The carotenoids (lutein, zeaxanthin, and beta-carotene) concentrate in the central part of the retina, and help us identify colors and see fine details, so they are vital in a healing strategy. They also provide protection against blue light, which damages the retina. Building macular optical pigment density (MOPD) is the goal in this approach, replenishing the macula; but first we have to break down these carotenoids and antioxidants and then shuttle them to the macula by following several simple tactics.

To ensure proper breakdown of supplements, use a good digestive supplement, preferably one that contains ox bile, taurine, lecithin, and adequate hydrochloric acid, or a combination of these. Thinning the bile is a major key to eye health as it will help more lutein get to the macula. Doing a liver/gallbladder flush[3] seasonally is an aggressive part of the plan, if one wishes to take a serious, logical approach. Remember, the liver and gallbladder influence the eye, so aim to create a healthy, fully functioning liver and gallbladder. We are not only our eyes. We are a complete system, so thinking from a systems biology approach[4] may create the desired healing response. To do this, head south to the GI tract first.

Interior Terrain Influences Absorption, So Start Clean

A well-functioning GI tract influences the eye tremendously.  Support digestive ability by following the 4-R[5] or GI Restoration program. Absorption of the macula-replenishing carotenoids like beta-carotene will be hindered by the presence of Helicobacter pylori bacteria and/or an imbalance of intestinal bacteria. This interior terrain needs a healthy balance of good bacteria versus bad bacteria by using targeted supplements and the support of digestive enzymes along with the other approaches discussed in the 4-R protocol.

All of the targeted supplements and carotenoid-rich foods we suggest will not do you a bit of good unless they are first broken down or micellized.

 As even Wikipedia notes, "Micelle formation is essential for the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins and complicated lipids within the human body. Bile salts formed in the liver and secreted by the gall bladder allow micelles of fatty acids to form. This allows the absorption of complicated lipids (e.g., lecithin) and lipid soluble vitamins (A, D, E and K) within the micelle by the small intestine."[6]

These are the micellizing "magicians" that get the job done: (1) Ox Bile: Supply exogenous ox bile, particularly to post-cholecystectomy patients; (2) Lecithin(Sunflower or soy) can be added to the diet to aid in fat breakdown; and (3) Taurine: A precursor to bile production, which also thins bile.

Fat-soluble lutein and zeaxanthin, essential to replenish the macula, require being emulsified or broken down to the micellized state in order to enter the bloodstream for transport by a very surprising particle "shuttle," high-density lipoprotein (HDL).

Bile acids are made from cholesterol in the liver and stored and concentrated in the gallbladder where they act as an emulsifying agent to break up fat into smaller globules, making it more soluble or hydrophilic. This process is called micelle formation.  Fat and fat-soluble vitamins like A, D, E, K, beta-carotene, and the carotenoid family are carried to the intestinal mucosa, absorbed into the lymphatic system, and then into the bloodstream. So what is the best kept secret? First, break down the fat-soluble vitamins and then get them to the macula by raising HDL levels to 61 or above. Do you know what your HDL level is?

We discovered this secret by observing hundreds of macular-degeneration patients and had noted in their history that many had had their gallbladder removed or else they were obese or otherwise compromised and had trouble digesting fats, as evidenced by their dry skin, dry eyes, weight gain, gas and bloating, or floating or shiny stools after fatty meals had been consumed. The connection was obvious! No gallbladder, fat maldigestion, or liver or GI issues equaled problems. Half a million people a year are opting for cholecystectomy (gallbladder surgery), not realizing that they can simply cleanse the liver and gallbladder with a "flush,"[7] which is basically an "oil change" that removes old, stasis bile and relieves symptoms in most cases. It is not hard or expensive to do and anyone can do it. And it is certainly worth a try.

However, we are concerned - particularly in a patient with macular degeneration who has undergone cholecystectomy - that fat-soluble vitamins be effectively broken down and absorbed. It is hoped that practitioners caring for macular-degeneration patients incorporate these strategies into their standard of care so that non-responders will have more chance of improvement.

But proper breakdown isn't the end of the story. Nutrient transport is another key player. Call the HDL "Shuttle."

Best Kept Secret #2:  Lutein and Zeaxanthin Need HDL Particles

Lutein and zeaxanthin, critical components to replenish the macula, are carried in the bloodstream to the macula on HDL particles. That's amazing. Carotenoids responsible for central vision hitch a ride on a cholesterol particle and hone in on their destination: the macula. And you thought cholesterol was the enemy ... wrong! Cholesterol in a healthy ratio and thin bile are key players in this healthy-eye strategy.

Bile is made of bile salts, cholesterol esters, and lecithin. Keep cholesterol at a healthy, total level and at an optimal HDL-to-low density lipoprotein (LDL) ratio because if cholesterol is too low, we will not have enough of the raw materials we need to make bile. Be sure you have what it takes to make cholesterol. Even magnesium plays a part.  Blood-serum concentration of lutein and zeaxanthin by proper breakdown of nutrients into micellized globules is important, but equally important is the ability to transport them to their targeted destination. Unless HDL cholesterol is adequate - at least 61 milligrams per deciliter - time and money are potentially wasted on supplements.

Summarizing the Total Approach

  • Take Protein Digestive Aid with each meal
  • Take ULC-R to clean up H pylori bacteria
  • Take Digestive Enzyme and Perfect Eyes
  • Have a smoothie with Power Greens, Arginine Plus
  • Do the Liver /Gall bladder Flush
  • Eat free run eggs and coconut Oil.
  • Aim for an HDL of 61 mg/dl.
