Natural Alternatives: Dry Eye Syndrome Treatment

After being diagnosed with dry eye syndrome, KC is determined to find safe, natural, herbal relief.

Oats: 1 to 3 cups of tea or 1/4 to 1 teaspoon of tincture daily. A bowl of oatmeal can help too, but it won’t be as strong as tea or tincture.

St. John’s Wort: 900 mg a day in capsules standardized to 0.3 percent hypericin, divided into three 300 mg doses, or 1 to 3 teaspoons of a tincture, in divided doses. For insomnia, take the full dose at bedtime.

Ginkgo: 40 to 60 mg of standardized extract capsules.

Relaxants: Begin by following directions on the label, but it’s fine to slowly work up to as much as three times the recommended dose.
