Treating Retinitis Pigmentosa with Traditional Chinese Medicine
At Wellspring Clinic in Vancouver, Canada, we have developed a treatment protocol for Retinitus Pigmentosa patients: "Wellspring Vision Improvement Protocol (WVIP)". Since 1999, we have treated over 550 cases of Retinitis Pigmentosa.
Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) is a family of genetic diseases leading to progressive degeneration of the retina. RP is characterized by progressive night blindness and a loss of peripheral vision (so called 'tunnel vision'). The disease eventually involves loss of color (blue) and day vision. The majority of patients become legally blind before the age of 60.
TCM: Perspectives and Therapeutics
Traditional Chinese medicine has been used to treat night blindness for centuries in China. In modern time these experiences were applied directly to the treatment of Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP), because night blindness is the most distinctive symptom of RP.
Wellspring Case Reports
Dr. Yu has worked extensively with over 550 patients with Retinitus Pigmentosa from all over the world. He has had amazing results with his treatments and has given people back their hope for healthy lives. He has also been working with many noteworthy universities to research the science behind why his treatments work.
Future Research Plans
Our clinical experience in the treatment of Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) has indicated that Traditional Chinese Medicine may have some potential in improving RP patients' night vision, day vision, visual field and quality of life. Further well designed prospective study is needed to investigate the efficacy of WVIP treatment. We call for the cooperation of ophthalmologic research groups from around world to advance this promising treatment.
