Foods That Support Healthy Vision, Part 1


Dr. Rudrani Banik, one of America’s foremost integrative ophthalmologists, discusses her new book: "The Beyond Carrots Cookbook: A complete recipe guide for healthy vision and the prevention of eye disease." She recounts her personal transformation via a healing journey that led her to conquer her own migraines by embracing diet and supplementation, and prompted her to study Functional Medicine. Dr. Banik explains that different parts of the visual apparatus require different nutrients; there’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all eye formula. Her book focuses on food sources of key vitamins and minerals.

Dr. Banik previews her upcoming book that will address macular degeneration. Are there new breakthroughs on the horizon for curing vision problems? Click HERE for part 2.
