Loosening of the eyelids, called ptosis or blepharoptosis, can occur naturally with aging, but often it can be a sign of a more serious neurological or muscular disease.
So, whether you are young or old, you are not immune to ptosis. But nevertheless, there are natural treatments that can help you get rid of them. What we present to you below.
1- Teabag compress:
To relieve the pain and discomfort associated with ptosis, soak two sachets of chamomile tea in warm water and let them cool to room temperature.
Squeeze the hot tea tea infusion, lie back down, place the sachets over your eyes and relax. As tea can stain, be sure to put a towel behind your head to retain the drops.
If ptosis is caused by a neuromuscular condition as a result of a stroke, acupuncture can help. An acupuncturist with experience in neuromuscular disorders will place needles in certain muscles of the face and scalp to help re-innervate facial muscles and stimulate atrophied muscles.
3- Netrapana therapy:
In Ayurvedic medicine (Indian), the standard treatment for ptosis is a combination of warmed ghee, salt and some oils carefully poured on the eyes by a professional of the said medicine.
Not only is this practice soothing, but it can actually strengthen the nerves and muscles of the eyes. Find a practitioner in your area and ask if he has experience in Netrapana therapy.
4- Eat foods that are good for the eyes:
Beta-carotene and other carotenoids are associated with good eye health. In addition, for patients with ptosis, foods rich in beta-carotene have anti-inflammatory properties that protect against certain types of cancer, stimulate the immune system’s response and help protect the skin from damage. When designing meals, be sure to include a portion or two of foods rich in beta-carotene.
