Let’s talk about how to get rid of eye floaters.

Eye floaters are an accumulation of collagen fiber in a certain form that’s damaged—it’s been glycated. This means it’s stuck to a sugar molecule.

When a protein is connected to a sugar, or sugar is connected to a fat, it becomes unavailable and can clog up the body.

A lack of antioxidants, as well as a high-carb diet, can contribute to glycation.

But there are things you can do to help prevent glycation. Taking these natural remedies for eye floaters on an empty stomach may be best so they don’t interfere with other proteins.

The best natural remedies for eye floaters:
1. Choline (1000 mg per day)
2. Inositol (500 mg per day)
3. Methionine (200 mg per day)
4. L-lysine (one to three grams)

These remedies can take time to work—even months. To help enhance and speed up the process, you can try intermittent and prolonged fasting.

It’s also crucial to start cutting sugar out of your diet. Getting on the Healthy Keto® diet may help balance your blood sugar levels and increase your antioxidants to get rid of floaters.

The best foods to consume to help get rid of eye floaters:
1. Vegetables high in vitamin C
2. Meats and seafood high in zinc

      I was told by the eye surgeon that operated on Prince Albert of Monaco (Dr. Rakic of CHU in Liège) that nothing can be done safely if you’re young because the only thing to do is remove that vitrous body. When you’re young your retina sticks to that body and you risk tearing the retina. When you’re old (60-ish) it doesn’t stick anymore and you can attempt to replace the vitrous body. I’ve had floaters since I was 5 years old. I am definitely trying this!

    Hi Dr Berg, thank you as always for your wise words and approach to medical problems. So informative .

    I have a request, ive been suffering intermittently from Cyclic vomiting syndrome for over 20 years. In the past 12 months it has recurred after years of no symptoms (which coincided with pregnancy and then 18 months post-partum). Is this a topic that you might cover in the future? I know it’s very obscure but I’m sure many people would be able to benefit.
    Thanks again, Vanessa

    I have floaters. I’ve had one since I was a teenager. But I’ve also come to realize that I’ve always been B 1 deficient. And for some reason I think that B1 deficiency and oxalates go hand in hand.

    I started reducing my oxalate intake and then I’ve been increasing my B1 and I’ve noticed my floaters have decreased significantly.

      AlliThiamine has been very helpful in our family. Thiamine is such an important co-factor, signs of deficiency can arise in just about any organ or tissue .. not just nervous system, and mitochondrial energy function. It is the original anti-stress vitamin and we have all had lots of that in the past 3 years.

I have eye floaters too, from early childhood on.

    Floaters can also be Red Blood Cells (they look like fruit flies except they move when you look at them, so you know they are floaters, but basically little black dots rather than stringy stuff), and they can also be your eye jelly coming apart as you age. This happened to me, and I thought I had a retinal tear as I saw blue flashes at night when I glanced behind me to pull out in my car. I got it checked out, and they said the jelly was coming off my retina, but the retina was OK. It’s apparently now swimming in my eyes like macaroni, and I have a big blob of defocus swimming back and forth which is annoying. I wish they could just suck it out, but they’re obviously worried if they did it might tear my retina on the way out. If you see a sudden increase in the little black dots, you need to see your eye doctor IMMEDIATELY, because it means you might have ruptured a capillary for some reason. But I’ve had one or two all my life since childhood, no problemo.
