Treating Chronic Open-Angle Glaucoma with Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine
By Andy Rosenfarb, MTOM, Dipl. Ac., Dipl. C.H.

Over the last 10 years, in my practice I have specialized in TCM Ophthalmology. I have made quite a few significant clinical observations through diagnostic testing, treatment and direct feedback from my patients. In my clinical practice, I incorporate TCM with nutrition and “functional medicine.” Functional medicine uses methods to measure how weak (yin) or stressed (yang) the body’s organs, glands, and systems may be.

As a comparison to the earth, smoking can be signified as the source of air pollution to an individual, such as "smoke" in the air from exhaust from cars, factories, etc. Trees are signified as the "Lungs" of the earth, which purify the air. Now, when someone is smoking, the internal body is occupied by the energy of the "smoke." Then the Lungs have to work harder to purify the body system. When someone is addicted to cigarettes, the body cells and internal organs are constantly living in a polluted environment.
