Kerato-conus

Question:

My son has just been diagnosed as having kerato-conus. Is there any chance he can be helped with vision techniques?

Answer:

This is a question I would like to throw open to the readers of these pages. Does anyone know of a successful outcome for this condition? So far my researches have drawn a blank, but if you have the condition don't lose heart. I am just one person amongst millions. the disease is very rare, and as is usual with so-called incurable diseases, if one person manages to completely reverse their symptoms, the facts are usually dismissed as anecdotal and the evidence swept under a rug.

Just bear in mind that you will undoubtedly have to do as much research as you can and be truly dedicated to the quest. It is also worth noting that any disease is not really a fixed absolute - if you saw your condition get slowly worse it means you saw your condition go through changes. In our civilisation we tend to think that once one starts in one direction, it's against all reason to stop and head another way.

Miss Sage, the Grande Dame of Bates Method in the United Kingdom, was of the opinion that kerato conus was like a pimple that had formed on the front of the eyeball. Her opinion was that it should be possible to reverse the symptom if the person was willing to research detoxification of the whole system. Has anyone been doing this? Let us know so we can spread your knowledge to those in need.

The two keys to look for in any disease are cause and habit - sometimes these come in one very large parcel! If kerato conus is result of systemic toxaemia then the path would lead us to a way of removing the causes of toxaemia, and providing the conditions of health.

Vision Techniques will be able to help where the kerato-conus has led to increased strain in the surrounding facial tissues through trying to push through the condition. To decrease the strain will enable greater ease and better nutrition and drainage through the symptomatic area. I would guess that progress would be likely to be slow, or even imperceptible. Keeping a diary would be one way of assessing accurately what progress is being made.
