There are many factors related to the condition known as Macular Degeneration. The most common cause is a circulatory problem that often increases with age.
The macula itself has a very high requirement for proper nutritional elements, oxygen, and the elimination of waste products in order to function properly. Circulation problems reduce the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the macula and will cause a dysfunction in the macula and, ultimately, its degeneration.
Early signs include:
- Blurred vision with close work
- Seeing straight lines as wavy (doorways appear as a figure of eight)
- Your sight degrades as you look straight at print or faces
- A black hole (starts grey and goes steadily blacker) may form in the centre of your vision
- Sensitivity to bright light and night vision
- You can only adapt very slowly from light to dark
- Eventually you may only have a small amount of peripheral vision
There are two forms of the disease – the wet, more commonly the dry form.
In the dry form, there is a breakdown or thinning of the retinal pigment epithelial cells (RPE) in the macula. In the wet form, the membrane underlying the retina thickens and then breaks.
While there is no standardised treatment for the dry form of AMD, there are natural treatments that can help, especially when it comes to preventing both types of AMD.
Some studies have shown that acupressure can enhance the cellular ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) synthesising capabilities in the retina, helping to improve visual acuity for AMD patients.
There are also some herbs that may have beneficial effects for the prevention and management of AMD. These include Bilberry, which contains active antioxidant compounds, and also strengthens the capillaries and reduces bleeding in the retina.
Microcurrent stimulation is one of the main acupressure techniques available to treat AMD.
HealthPoint is effective on over 160 different ailments. (always seek the advice of a qualified medical practitioner prior to carrying out any self-treatment plan).
The most common ailments people present themselves with do tend to be pain related, e.g. arthritis, back and neck pain, joint pain, and nerve pain such as sciatica and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
However, Acupuncture and Acupressure have their roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). TCM is a complete medical system that is capable of diagnosing and successfully treating a wide range of conditions. Below are just some of those examples.

How Can Microcurrent Stimulation Help Macular Degeneration and Other Eye Diseases
Microcurrent stimulation (or electro-acupuncture) is an exciting development that is now being used to treat Macular Degeneration. Results of initial clinical trials indicate that 70% of patients, with the dry or wet form of Macular Degeneration, will have a significant improvement of vision. The medical profession increasingly recognises the contribution that can also be made by acupuncture in the relief of many eye complaints. Read more…
Electronic stimulation is a therapy in which a weak electric current is used to stimulate the retina and the diseased macula to restore sight though points known as acupuncture points.
Dr. Merill Allen and Dr. Leland Michael published their preliminary study in 1993, on the rate of development of Age-Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD) in people using nutritional supplements, and using simultaneous therapy with electronic stimulation.
Dr. John Jarding reported his results in 1997 after treating thirty-five Macular Degeneration patients with a controlled electronic stimulation applied to eight points around the eye – all thirty-five patients reported an improvement in their vision.

HealthPoint™ Works in two ways:
- HealthPoint™, with it’s unique point location system, enables you to quickly become an expert.
- HealthPoint™, then applies electrical pulses to these points enabling you to treat any condition that acupuncture can help.
You will know you are on the correct point when you FEEL a distinct ‘stinging’ sensation. This is nothing to worry about and isn’t ‘painful’. It is an indication that you have reached the correct acupressure point. Mild electric pulses then stimulate these points with the correct use of the HealthPoint instrument.
The effects of this therapy are:
- An immediate and long lasting relief from at least 60% of the symptoms. And, with continuing therapy;
- Promotion of healing and tissue regeneration.
This enables you to become an expert almost immediately locating and treating the exact points.
