    • Eye irrigation removes cataracts safely using deionised / distilled water
    • Hi Andrew, How interesting! I have only in the last week been diagnosed with cataracts (I am 59) which I have been told are minor and described as 5%. I personally think that my worsening distance vision and now cataracts haven't been helped by having Intensive Hyperbaric Oxygen treatment recently, I believe that eyesight can take a while to settle, from weeks to months in fact so I intend to check my prescription once more in 6 months. The reason for telling you this is that after too long a gap because of certain life events, not least of which was my husband being diagnosed with Lymphoma which he is now thankfully in remission from, I am now returning to IBT. I began with IBT roughly 6 years ago and submitted a tracking report to you at the time (I have MS) I was wondering about this thread, if you are meaning that IBT alongside the ionised water is making the difference with cataracts or just the eye washing alone? Can't promise to manage 4 eye washes a day, although we have bought the ionised water today in readiness and willing to try at least once a day! What we WILL be doing is sleeping inclined again starting last week and I would be more than willing to let you know in 6 months if there has been a change in my cataracts percentage wise if it might be helpful? Hope I manage to post this as I’m a bit of a technophobe! Thanking you for all the care and attention you give in getting your message across re IBT. Best wishes Elaine.

 Abstract
 The abnormal physiology that manifests itself in healthy humans during their adaptation to the microgravity of space has all the features of accelerated ageing. The mechano-skel-etal and vestibulo-neuromuscular stimuli which are below threshold in space, result in an overall greater than 10-fold more rapid onset and time course of muscle and bone atrophy in space and the development of balance and coordination problems on return to Earth than occur with ageing. Similarly, the loss of functional capacity of the cardiovascular system that results in space and continuous bed rest is over 10 times faster than in the course of ageing. De-conditioning in space from gravity deprivation
 has brought attention to the medical hazards of deconditioning on Earth from gravity withdrawal as in sedentary ageing. Though seemingly reversible after periods of 6 months in space or its ground analog of bed rest.

It remains to be seen whether that will be so after longer exposures. Both adaptation to space and ageing do not merely parallel but converge as disorders of mechano-transduction. Like spaceflight, its analog bed rest telescopes
the changes observed with ageing and serves as a useful clinical model for the study of age-related deconditioning.  http://www.karger.com/Article/PDF/252852
