Prevent Macular Degeneration…Naturally
Dr. Rani Banik is on a mission – to prevent vision loss and blindness from macular degeneration. Over 20+ years in practice, she has seen this debilitating disease rob people not only of their eyesight, but of their independence, their livelihoods, and many of their simple joys in life.
Like many of her colleagues in ophthalmology, Dr. Banik was taught the basics of prevention of macular degeneration – leafy greens, smoking cessation, weight management, and exercise. However, she soon realized that these nutrition and lifestyle interventions were simply not enough.
Dr. Banik knew that more had to be done to prevent macular degeneration, not only for her patients but for herself as well, since she herself is at risk for this potentially blinding disease.
With her additional in-depth training in Integrative and Functional Medicine, Dr. Banik realized that a different approach was necessary to fight against macular degeneration, a proactive approach based on nutrition and lifestyle science.
In her extensive research, Dr. Banik identified the three root causes of macular degeneration – oxidative damage, mitochondrial dysfunction, and inflammation. These root causes fall in sequence like dominoes and ultimately leading to vision loss and even blindness in some cases. To prevent blindness, addressing each of these root causes was necessary.
This epiphany was the impetus for Dr. Banik to develop her protocol for macular degeneration, which she has successfully used in many of her patients to help them arrest progression and prevent blindness. She ultimately decided to write a book outlining the key strategies she has used in her patients.
Her book entitled, “More Than Meets The Eye – 7 Surprising Strategies to Prevent Vision Loss From Macular Degeneration” is set to be released in the fall of 2021. It will be available on Amazon, Kindle, Barnes & Noble, as well as many other booksellers.
