Surveys conducted by the World Health Organization and the National Programme for Control of Blindness (NPCB) reveal that over 22 million people in the country (which is equivalent to 12 million blind people) are visually impaired, of which 80.1% cases are due to cataract.

Ayurvedic remedies to prevent cataract
Ayurveda, the holistic healing system of ancient India, emphasizes healing and maintaining health by balancing the body's doshas – pitta, kapha and vata. Ayurveda states that any eye disease like cataract arises from an imbalance of these doshas, ​​especially pitta dosha, which is responsible for the eyes and vision. According to Ayurvedic principles, cataracts can be controlled and prevented with the help of proper diet, correction and lifestyle changes.

Calm the Vata dosha
Balancing the doshas is important in the Ayurvedic control of cataracts. The vata dosha in the eyes can cause dryness and degenerative changes when unbalanced. The pitta dosha, which controls the body's metabolism and transformation, can cause inflammation and vision problems when unbalanced. The kapha dosha, which is associated with the structure and lubrication of the eyes, can cause blurred vision and watery eyes and sometimes irritation or infection.

Eat these things
Dietary suggestions focus on pacifying pitta, as its imbalance is commonly associated with cataracts. This includes consuming cooling foods such as cucumbers, melons and dairy products and prioritizing the sweet, bitter and astringent tastes found in leafy greens, legumes and grains such as barley and rice.

Avoid sour things
It is important to avoid spicy, sour and salty foods that can aggravate pitta. It is important to keep the body hydrated, so drinking plenty of water and eating hydrating foods such as fruits and vegetables helps maintain eye moisture and overall health.

Increase your intake of fruits and vegetables

Antioxidant-rich foods, such as green leafy vegetables (spinach, bananas and fenugreek), fruits (berries, oranges and papayas), and herbs and spices (turmeric, coriander and saffron), can prevent oxidative stress, a major cause of cataract formation.

Consume Ghee
Including good fats such as ghee is also beneficial and helps nourish and lubricate our eye tissues, including the eyes. Specific Ayurvedic foods and herbs include triphala, a mixture of three fruits (amadaki, bibhitaki and haritaki), which is considered very useful in rejuvenating the body, and amla (Indian gooseberry), which is high in vitamin C and antioxidants, making it very beneficial for eye health. Turmeric is important in preventing inflammation in the body and especially helps manage inflammation related to pitta imbalance.
