Are We There Yet?
Join Date: Jul 2008
DD has an eye condition that is similar to macular degeneration (blood vessels growing and leaking under the retina causing scar tissue and permanent blind spots in the central vision). She receives the same injections as the OP's husband to hold off the damaging effects of the disease. I've done a lot of research on angiogenesis and ways we might help her naturally.
Since green leafy vegetables are best, we make spinach and/or kale smoothies also (more spinach than kale for the reason you mentioned, but we slip a little bit of kale in each one and you can mask the bitterness that way).
We like the strawberry/banana ones. Strawberries and lemons is another good choice if you like lemon. We've also tried lemon/orange and lemon/kiwi, but didn't like those as well as the others. You can get over 2cups of spinach in a smoothie that fills a Disney mug. (I lOVE our Disney mugs, they hide the color of the drink, which can be a little disconcerting. lol.)
Kale chips are unexpectedly good also. You can find recipes online.
Sorry for getting a bit off topic, OP. Just thought I'd add the tips we use to add natural forms of VEGF inhibitors to the diet (certain mushrooms and fish are also good options, if your husband likes those).
Good luck on your vacation. I hope you are able to make it work so that he can see as much of the attractions and shows he loves, as possible.
(And Scooby, your grandbaby is just ADORABLE! What a cutie-pie!)
