Subject:         811 or fasting for blepharitis (ocular rosacea)
Date: December 22, 2012 at 6:42 am PST


I read the 811 book 5x times in a row to understand everything and started the 80/10/10 program about a week ago and feel great. Very light, clear and clean!

I was wondering if Dr. D or anyone else has had success in reversing blepharitis/posterior eyelid inflammation.

In short it's an incurable disease (according to ophtalmologists) that is caused by dysfunctional meibomian glands which are located on the eyelids.

The meibomian glands get plugged and inflamed and this leads to dry/itchy/irritated/light-sensitive eyes because the oily meibomian secretions are needed to protect the eye surface in combination with the watery tears. The meibomian secretions should ensure that the watery tears don't evaporate too fast.

With blepharitis/ocular rosacea the meibomian secretions are not there or not enough because the glands are dysfuncational so the protective tearfilm evaporates too fast and leaves the eyes vulnerable to debris, dust, mold, bacteria, etc.

The doctors recommend eyelid hygiene, warm compresses and eyelid massages to liquify the meibomian secretions and squeeze the oil out. I have been doing that for over 5 months and it helps a bit, but the inflammation doesn't want to go away.

In short: My eyes constantly feel itchy and irritated and this is destroying the quality of my life and I would be willing to to ANYTHING to make it go away!

My previous diet wasn't particulary bad but not good either ... lots of fruit and berries, cooked veggies, lots of eggs, lots of coconut oil and coconut milk and butter, some fish, lots of potatoes, some olive oil and avocados... but I have reached a point were I feel I need massive changes. I tried steroid drops, antibiotic drops, antibacterial creams, etc. and nothing works.

I also have a slight case of rosacea (red, inflamed cheeks) that started at the same time. Rosacea and eyelid inflammation go often together, that's why some doctors call the eyelid inflammation "ocular rosacea".

Have you had success in reversing this condition, Dr. D or anyone else? I would even consider fasting, altough I'm very slender already. (178cm / 49kg / 29 yrs / female)

Thank you very much for any support/information you can offer. I would be grateful for any little hint of hope...
