#13. Integrative Eye Specialist – Dr. Andy Rosenfarb

Join the top integrative eye specialist Dr. Andy Rosenfarb. Discover the early warning signs of eye diseases, how so-called “hopeless” eye diseases such as Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD), Retinits Pigmetosa (RP), Glaucoma, and Diabetic Retinopathy are being slowed and reversed, and how to take care of your vision in the era of screens.

Dr. Andy Rosenfarb, founder and clinical director of Acupuncture Health Associates in Westfield, NJ, is a world-renowned expert in the field of Chinese Medical Opthalmology. Since 1997, he has been leading the field in integrated treatment methods that combine Traditional Chinese Medicine, Naturopathic Medicine and new cutting-edge therapies to help people suffering from debilitating eye diseases to maintain and improve their eyesight.

Drawing from his extensive training and clinical experience, Dr. Rosenfarb recently teamed with researchers at John Hopkins University to design the acupuncture protocol for the first-ever clinical study on the efficiency of treating RP with acupuncture. He serves on the Board of Directors for the American Association for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (AAAOM), and as an Executive Council Member of the Specialty Committee of Ophthalmology, of the World Federation of Chinese Medicine.

    Great talk…but your background music is annoying!
    This helps clarify that eye diseases can treated. I appreciated the recommendations especially after explaining the tope 3 issues for eye issues, especially when using technology today. Preach this to my patients all the time, especially if they complain of dry or tired eyes, and headaches. Thank you for explaining the chronic supplementation issue!

      Thank you very much for your suggestion. We’ve taken off the background music so that people can focus on the information itself. Please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions. Lan
