Treating Retinitis Pigmentosa with
Traditional Chinese Medicine

At Wellspring Clinic in Vancouver, Canada, we have developed a treatment protocol for Retinitis Pigmentosa patients: “Wellspring Vision Improvement Protocol (WVIP)”. Since 1999, we have treated over 750 cases of Retinitis Pigmentosa.

What is 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 750 patients with Retinitis 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.
