Cure AMD Foundation is a Non-Profit, Charitable Organization, Founded by Ophthalmologist, Chris A. Knobbe, MD.  Our Goal is to Eliminate Macular Degeneration – by 2040 – through Ancestral Dietary Strategy, Advocacy, and Scientific Research.

Come Learn about the Profound, Revolutionary, and Dramatic Scientific Discoveries, Made by Dr. Knobbe, Which Support the Hypothesis that AMD May be Entirely Prevented – and Treated – Through Ancestral Dietary Strategy and “Sacred” Foods.

Dr. Knobbe Proffers a Revolutionary Hypothesis for the Cause (and Treatment) of AMD – at the Ancestral Health Symposium – 2016, held at the University of Colorado – Boulder

Is it truly possible that Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is not only entirely preventable, but also treatable — with an ancestral diet?  Dr. Knobbe and his team’s investigative research strongly supports this hypothesis.

In Dr. Knobbe’s debut presentation of his hypothesis and research on the dietary etiology (cause) of AMD, which was held at the University of Colorado Boulder, you will witness the profoundness of this original hypothesis, and a sampling of the extraordinary evidence that supports it, all in a 40 minute presentation.  Just click the link on the video to the left, to play.

“I was genuinely blown away by Dr. Knobbe’s amazing talk. I sat there with goose-bumps thinking, ‘Oh My Gosh, it’s blindingly obvious!”∗

An Easy and Tasty Way to Stop AMD

If you already have AMD, wouldn’t it feel great to know that you are no longer consuming the diet that caused your macular degeneration in the first place?

And wouldn’t it be even better to know that you’re doing everything possible, nutritionally, to prevent progression of your macular degeneration (AMD)?

If you have a parent or sibling with macular degeneration (AMD), wouldn’t it be brilliant to know that, by consuming a delicious, healthy, natural food diet, and that without ever suffering with a strictly limiting diet, that you could literally eliminate your chances of developing AMD?

An Ancient Diet Proven to Improve Your Health

Benefits of the Ancestral Dietary Strategy as Recommended by Dr. Knobbe in the book, Ancestral Dietary Strategy to Prevent & Treat Macular Degeneration

N

An ancestral dietary strategy will not only prevent macular degeneration, but may reverse early stages of AMD, thereby preserving your vision!

N

Ancestral dietary strategy will not only prevent and treat your AMD, but will prevent and treat existing “Westernized diseases,” including heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, obesity, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, osteoarthritis, autoimmune disorders, and much more.

N

By following this whole-food based dietary strategy, which includes both plant and animal foods, you will no longer need or benefit from synthetic vitamins, potentially saving you thousands of dollars while improving your health!

N

You will understand which fats and oils are healthy, which are not, and exactly which oils can be consumed safely — as failure to understand and implement this concept may in and of itself result in AMD and/or cause progression of AMD.

N

You will fully understand how just four potentially toxic, processed, nutrient-deficient food groups, can destroy your health and cause you to lose vision and even go blind from AMD – and exactly how to avoid those dangerous foods.

N

You will understand healthy and unhealthy sugars – and very simply be able to determine which to consume.

N

You will learn about saturated fat and cholesterol. Should we avoid saturated fat and cholesterol, or embrace them as healthy? The answers may surprise you! And these answers are critical to preventing and treating AMD!

N

You will understand which grains can be safely consumed and how to prepare them if you do. This is a tricky one but also critical to your health.

N

You will understand how to safely eat in most restaurants, where dangerous cooking oils, sugars, and processed foods may abound.

N

You will understand how certain “sacred foods,” which are consumed by societies and cultures all over the world who have remained in brilliant health and without AMD and heart disease, should be consumed to prevent nutrient-deficiency diseases.

N

You will also understand Dr. Knobbe’s 21-point “Dietary Rules” that may forever preserve and enhance your vision – right along with your overall health.

N

Finally, a promise from Dr. Knobbe: Every single statement and recommendation made in this book is backed by scientific study and logical conclusions. For those who have followed orthodox nutritional dogma for the past 50 years, these conclusions promise to be jaw-dropping!

WITHOUT MACULAR DEGENERATION

WITH MACULAR DEGENERATION

The Natural History of Macular Degeneration

If you already have macular degeneration, here’s what mainstream ophthalmology has found:

N

There is a gradual, inexorable progression of the disease, usually stealing at least some of your vision in both eyes.

N

Night vision is worse, even before clinical evidence of disease, for those who will develop macular degeneration.

N

In the next ten years, there is about a 15 to 20% chance that your macular degeneration willprogress to advanced stages in at least one eye.

N

Vision loss to the level of blindness in both eyes, which is 20/200 or worse, fortunately, occurs only in about 1% of patients.

N

By 2002, the World Health Organization determined that more than 2 million people were already blind in both eyes due to AMD.

Without an ancestral dietary strategy, in the next ten years there is about a 15 to 20% chance that your macular degeneration will progress to advanced stages in at least one eye.

You may have been told that the only treatment for the dry form of AMD is synthetic multivitamins – that is, the AREDS vitamins formula. However, consider the following…

N

Synthetic vitamins have not been shown to prevent AMD in any study.

N

Only one study out of thirteen – the Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) – found that this group of vitamins and minerals benefitted some patients – precisely one of every four.

N

Only one in four patients (25%) had less progression to advanced stages of disease, for those taking the AREDS Formula vitamins (e.g. Bausch & Lomb Preservision, Macular Protect Complete, AREDS 2, Pro-Optic AREDS 2 Formula, Alcon I-Caps, Ocuvite AREDS 2, etc., etc.).

N

75% of patients with AMD, who took the synthetic AREDS Formula vitamins, had no benefit at all!

N

In one study, 13% of patients taking AREDS Formula vitamins had a more than doubling of progression of their macular degeneration. They were worse!

The Cold, Hard Truth About AREDS

“Eye Vitamins” and Other Synthetic Multivitamins

N

There is a gradual, inexorable progression of the disease, usually stealing at least some of your vision in both eyes.

N

Night vision is worse, even before clinical evidence of disease, for those who will develop macular degeneration.

N

In the next ten years, there is about a 15 to 20% chance that your macular degeneration willprogress to advanced stages in at least one eye.

N

By 2002, the World Health Organization determined that more than 2 million people were already blind in both eyes due to AMD.

N

Vision loss to the level of blindness in both eyes, which is 20/200 or worse, fortunately, occurs only
in about 1% of patients.

Synthetic vitamins result in higher death rates from all causes. This is a proven fact.

N

In 2012, the Cochrane Collaboration independently reviewed 78 trials involving nearly 300,000 people, and determined that people taking multivitamin supplements had higher death rates from all causes!

N

The relative risk of death for those taking synthetic vitamins was 1.04, which indicates that you’re likely to die a little sooner if you’re taking vitamins in pill form.

N

Note: the AREDS Formula vitamin formula is a synthetic multivitamin/mineral supplement. These will not only make you less healthy, but may contribute to your earlier demise.

N

And with only a 25% chance that the AREDS Formula vitamins will help you, but a 13% chance that they will more than double the progression of your macular degeneration, are synthetic vitamins even worth considering?

A Message From the
Cure AMD Foundation Board of Directors

Eye physician and surgeon, Chris A. Knobbe, MD, had been in practice nearly 20 years when, in 2013, he asked himself the question, “Could macular degeneration be a ‘Westernized disease’? Could AMD be a disease that is the result of a Westernized diet?” That question would forever change his life.

Dr. Knobbe began his practice of ophthalmology in 1994, after completing his residency training at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, in Denver, Colorado, USA. He was certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology in 1997 and has remained board-certified since then.

In 2001, Dr. Knobbe was invited to become an Associate Clinical Professor of Ophthalmology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, in Dallas, Texas. He held that position until April 30, 2017, when he relinquished his position to lead the Cure AMD Foundation, to spread the message regarding he and his colleagues’ research and theory, as well as to pursue additional research regarding his thesis.

In 2011, when a few dietary changes drastically improved the arthritis that Dr. Knobbe had suffered with for more than 15 years, he was compelled to learn everything he could about nutrition. And that is how he was led to ask himself that critical question regarding the genesis and progression of macular degeneration.

On February 25, 2015, Dr. Knobbe left his full-time practice of general ophthalmology to pursue investigative research on this very subject. It would be nearly a year-and-a-half of full-time study, research, investigation, interviews, and writing, before he had completed his research and was ready to deliver this scientific breakthrough to the world. That message would come in the form of presentations, a scientific paper, and a book.

The hypothesis that Dr. Knobbe would proffer holds that macular degeneration, which is the leading cause of irreversible vision loss and blindness in developed nations, is not only preventable, but treatable in the early stages, with an ancestral diet.

Research shows us that somewhere in the range of 190 million people currently are affected by AMD, worldwide. If Dr. Knobbe’s hypothesis is correct, every single patient’s macular degeneration is caused by diet. And every single case of early to moderate dry AMD is treatable with diet. That’s right, every single one.

Ladies and Gentlemen, consider the following:

N

What is YOUR vision worth? Have you really considered that? If you have AMD, you are already losing vision.  Is it worth changing your diet, to potentially save your vision?

N

Dr. Knobbe’s book, Ancestral Dietary Strategy to Prevent & Treat Macular Degeneration, is truly a Manual to Save YOUR Vision from the ravages of AMD.

N

There is no other dietary guide, research, or book that presents a comprehensive hypothesis for the cause of AMD, with clear and abundant scientific evidence supporting the conclusion that AMD is both preventable and treatable, with diet.

N

Much pre-existing scientific study, plus the rigorous, repeatable, and irrefutable dietary study in 25 nations around the world, completed by Dr. Knobbe and nutrition researcher, Marija Stojanoska, entirely and fully supports this hypothesis.

N

Ancestral Dietary Strategy to Prevent & Treat Macular Degeneration, is the only book of its kind, representing the first and only scientific breakthrough in our understanding of not only the origin, but the progression of AMD, and how best to prevent that.

N

The best news? You won’t suffer any loss of good food! In fact, the best scenario is that you will choose whole foods of both plant and animal origin. You won’t need to go low carb! Or low fat! In fact, you can have all the carbs you want, or all the fat. BUT, you must get those carbs and fat from the correct sources. This is a critical point — and you will quickly understand this as you progress through this book.

N

You won’t need to eliminate any major categories of food — you can have grains, dairy, meats, eggs, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. It’s all about eliminating certain toxic, dangerous, and
nutrient-deficient foods, while at the same time, consuming whole, natural, preferably organic foods, along with a few certain “sacred foods,” that are of extraordinary nutrient density, readily available everywhere, and inexpensive.

N

Finally, you will NOT need to buy any synthetically produced supplements, which come in the form of tablets and pills, thereby potentially saving you thousands of dollars!

N

No one had synthetic vitamins in the year 1900, and yet, only a few cases of macular degeneration were found worldwide. Does it make sense that you would need synthetic vitamins to prevent macular degeneration today?

Because a single study – the Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS), showed that one out of four patients who already had moderate macular degeneration (AMD), benefitted by taking the AREDS formula vitamin/mineral supplement, most every ophthalmologist (Eye MD) and optometrist (O.D.) has recommended the AREDS formula vitamins since that study came out in 2001.

We checked the price of the Bausch and Lomb AREDS 2 Formula, 120 count soft gels, of which the recommended dose is two per day. One bottle sells for $30.97 U.S. dollars (at WalMart), which is a 60-day supply, and this translates to a supplement cost of 51.6 cents per day. A one-year supply of the AREDS 2 Formula supplements will cost you $188.40 U.S. dollars.

But remember, if you’re consuming an Ancestral Diet,
you will NO LONGER need these supplements!

Get a copy of Dr. Knobbe’s book, begin to follow your very own ancestral diet and, over a period of many years you may save thousands of dollars on synthetic vitamins and other supplements, which you will no longer need!
