I am off to see my local ayurvedic doctor next week!! I am going to ask him lots of questions about treating dry eye and meibomian gland dysfunction. I spoke with him today on the phone and he said he has had a lot of success with treating dry eye.
Sheila, I will ask him about taking Triphalia in pill form.
I have also come across someone who has had great success with treating blepharitis with breathing exercises. I was very curious about this and have done some research in this area. . . very interesting findings. It appears that many people hyperventilate and as a result have inadequate amounts of CO2 in their tissues. This can lead to all kinds of health problems, including inflammatory disease. Looking back on my experiences, I know now that I have probably been over-breathing for years. I am going to investigate this connection between breathing and disease more thoroughly.
