Anyone here have a natural cure/remedy for allergies (pinguecula) in the eye? I need help.

My right eye gets red every spring, summer, and fall, and there is a build up of protein called "pinguecula". It usually clears up during the snowy winters here in ND.

My eye doctor always prescribes eye drugs or steroids for my eye which I do not want. In the past it has masked the problem, but did nothing to cure it.

I've been trying to rub essential oils (lemon, frankincense, orange, and peppermint) diluted in extra virgin olive oil around my eye, but it doesn't seem to help much. I've also tried giving my eye an eye bath with water and lemon juice. Not much better.

I'm curious if anyone has had better results doing something else?

The auto-immune protocol works for me.

When I take it or give it to my dog, we use Jarrow's powder as a supplement. But if you can use it as an eye drop, that's even better!

You can make eye drops with MSM. I am not sure if the recommendation above was to supplement your diet or use externally. I do not have allergies but dry eyes and I try to improve my vision naturally so use the drops and they work great.

Well paleo helps a lot already, but fruits and nuts can make auto-immune diseases worse (I just listened to Loren Cordain). Nightshades can be a problem for some too. One of my eyes usually had weird red veins, my eyes were very itchy.

So if I have pinguecula in my eye, do you think I have hypothyroidism? LDL - is that related to my blood cholesterol? I guess I wouldn't say pinguecula disappears in winter, but diminishes from what I remember. I'll have to see this winter. Are you doing anything that helps with your pinguecula?

I found an herbal supplement that has helped immensely! I think it'll take quite a few more months, but my pinguecula is slowly diminishing away! Praise God!

It's called "Herbal Eyebright Combination".

It contains:

Eyebright Herb (Euphrasia officinalis) - 250 mg. Bayberry Bark - 76 mg. Red Raspberry Leaf (Rubus idaeus) - 76 mg. Cayenne Pepper (fruit) - 25 mg. Goldenseal Root (Hydrasitis canadensis)- 10 mg.

I take it twice a day, and it's helping. :-)

I will hopefully update this later for more results.

Pinguecula is linked to hypothyroidism & it seems the deposit on the eye is LDL. Pinguecula don't disappear in the winter though.

I & my sister have pinguecula in both of our eyes. She has diagnosed hypothyroidism. I probably have some issues, but not diagnosed/healing.

I'm unaware of anything that can get rid of them other than surgery.

I have a diagnosed autoimmune condition, so I definitely think it all links up together I just haven't found all the pieces of the puzzle yet!

I just noticed a small, early-stage on my left eye. The only thing that has helped is the eyewash with the above mentioned Herbal Eyebright combination. Apple cider vinegar would irritate one of my eyes, making it feel weird and giving it the signature bloodshot look. Lemon: no dry eye, but no difference really. This is the ONLY thing that has helped.

Just came across this site. Ben-did your ping eventually go away with eye bright? How long did it take? I have a ping in each eye which I've become very self conscious of especially since my eyes have been my "trademark". Thanks for any advice. :0)

I like quercetin, it is an anti-oxidant that is a natural anti-histamine. http://www.immunesupport.com/92fal004.htm I also find I react to dust mites and try to keep those down in bedding etc. I also follow an auto immune paleo diet.

You could try rinsing your eye in a bowl of warm water with raw honey. It won't hurt anything but may possibly help.

If you're hardcore : cut out nuts & fruits, cut out nightshades, eat only grass-fed meat, vegetables, fish and eggs and start supplementing the right vitamins (vitamin D is a good one). I don't have eye problems anymore following that diet.

I don't have your problem exactly, so I don't know if it works specifically for this, but Jonny Bowden recommends MSM for allergies. Worked on my dog.
