Let’s talk about how to get rid of eye floaters.

Eye floaters are an accumulation of collagen fiber in a certain form that’s damaged—it’s been glycated. This means it’s stuck to a sugar molecule.

When a protein is connected to a sugar, or sugar is connected to a fat, it becomes unavailable and can clog up the body.

A lack of antioxidants, as well as a high-carb diet, can contribute to glycation.

But there are things you can do to help prevent glycation. Taking these natural remedies for eye floaters on an empty stomach may be best so they don’t interfere with other proteins.

The best natural remedies for eye floaters:
1. Choline (1000 mg per day)
2. Inositol (500 mg per day)
3. Methionine (200 mg per day)
4. L-lysine (one to three grams)

These remedies can take time to work—even months. To help enhance and speed up the process, you can try intermittent and prolonged fasting.

It’s also crucial to start cutting sugar out of your diet. Getting on the Healthy Keto® diet may help balance your blood sugar levels and increase your antioxidants to get rid of floaters.

The best foods to consume to help get rid of eye floaters:
1. Vegetables high in vitamin C
2. Meats and seafood high in zinc

    Kind of interesting how all my life I’ve noticed these weird things and only now I finally know what is going on.

  • Winning Victory says:

    Dr. Berg;
    Thank you so much for this invaluable information.
    I’ve had some floaters on and off.
    I only see them, sometimes if I am looking at a White Painted Wall Under a bright light.
    I was also censored by the BigTech/YouTube Warlocks for acknowledging your humanitarian awesomeness, regarding the invaluable health tips and wellness information!
    Thank you again!

    Thank you Dr. Berg!

      You forgot the vegetables!

    • November Delta says:

      I was told by the eye surgeon that operated on Prince Albert of Monaco (Dr. Rakic of CHU in Liège) that nothing can be done safely if you’re young because the only thing to do is remove that vitrous body. When you’re young your retina sticks to that body and you risk tearing the retina. When you’re old (60-ish) it doesn’t stick anymore and you can attempt to replace the vitrous body. I’ve had floaters since I was 5 years old. I am definitely trying this!

    • Richard Jacobs says:

      I looked at WEBMD, Mao clinic, Healthline , nothing on nutrition or anything Dr. Berg mentioned. So sick of Western Medicine?

    • Manny C. says:

      Trying this. Went to my optometrist/ retina specialist due to a heavy floater in my right eye. He said, due to my 60 year old age that it was common and it won’t go away. I Don’t believe him!

  • Howie scammed the league says:

    I’ve had eye floaters since I was 17 almost 25 now and one thing I’ve noticed help a lot is getting a good night of rest plus fruits and veggies and high intake of water they appear much lighter in your field of vision

  • mr. MB says:

    Not only I got used to them, I play games with them. Try to get them to certain object, hit something while they are passing my eyesight…
    I kinda just accepted them as a normal part of how human see.

    But, the tide is turning and a life without floaters is on sight.

  • Rev Vend says:

    The absolutely only difference I noticed when I went on a gluten free diet was that the floaters disappeared. Nothing else helped my floaters, not even keto and I didn’t seem to have any other benefit from the gluten free diet either. 🤷

    • الوردة الجليدية says:

      Did you suffer from eye floaters and gluten free diet helped you to the extent it didn’t appear anymore?

    • D N says:

      Interesting. Thanks for your post. I have had floaters since I was a child (now 65) and even with 2 yrs on keto, noticed no difference.

  • Eva P Mama-Blue77 says:

    I’ve had floaters all my live – when I was around 10 I often said: it’s raining inside- looked like fine drizzling rain – I was using low carb for about a year with types of fasting with great results- don’t recall being concerned about my floaters so maybe they were less – after a visit overseas to see my mother- coming back I got Covid for the first time ever – it’s been 5 weeks and I’m still exhausted after doing some housework for a few hrs – I was trying tofu d the you tube video that had a title like : what to do after Covid- to get back to feeling better etc – I’m unable to find it and began to wonder if I imagined it was Dr Berg but now I guess it is stupid ytube ugh thanks for all you do

  • Carol Cole says:

    Dr. Berg, why do you recommend specific dosages of supplements on some videos, while on other videos you never mention the dosages we ought to take ? This always leaves me totally confused and floundering in the dark. Thank you !❤️

  • Derrill Floyd says:

    Wow!! I used to get those all the time as a child! Never knew what those were until this very moment and I’m closing on 60.

  • Te Le2 says:

    Thank you doctor for this video! I’m very happy to see such a detailed answer on my question!
    Maybe you know about this topic also: why veins start to come out in the legs, more on right leg? and right leg below knee is thicker than the left.
    the veins didn’t come out yet, but there are already strong sensations in these places and veins are visible, dark blue in color.
    Thanks again!

    • Alyssa Bench says:

      Try using thyme essential oil mixed with a carrier oil on them.
      Also don’t cross your legs and get excersise/blood flow through them.

  • Pauline Brus says:

    my whole life doctors told me that these floaters will not go away. I just have to live with it. Thank you for this video!!

  • Lisa Hause says:

    Had eye floaters for 2 years…went on carnivore diet! Lost 52lbs. I haven’t had eye floaters for 6 months now! Wonderful feeling….thanks , Mr. Berg! Love Ya!!!🤩👍🏻

  • Candy Kane says:

    Great information. My optometrist never told me what floaters were. Since I’ve been doing OMAD and IF 20:4, eating 4 eggs a day, and drastically lowered my sugars, I have noticed my floaters are greatly reduced. Will definitely continue eating healthy. Thank you for the info.

    • Seattle Six says:

      Same here… was told what they are but never advised what to do about them. Suddenly realized they were gone after 6 months OMAD.

  • Eric Masyk says:

    Whoa, I had no idea there was a name for this, let alone other people had this! Thankfully I haven’t had them for around a decade now, as almost that long ago I stopped putting sugar in my morning coffee and drastically reduced the amount of bread and pasta in my diet! Thanks again for more interesting and amazing health information, Dr. Berg! ❤️

  • Deirdre Walsh says:

    We WILL find you Dr. berg.
    You are precious to so many people.
    Thank you for all your hard work

  • tsx3214 says:

    Thanks, Doc. I also use OMAD, and as you mentioned, zinc; but I also include astaxanthin, zeaxanthin, lycopene, and lutein.

  • flamingpie herman says:

    I have floaters. I’ve had one since I was a teenager. But I’ve also come to realize that I’ve always been B 1 deficient. And for some reason I think that B1 deficiency and oxalates go hand in hand.

    I started reducing my oxalate intake and then I’ve been increasing my B1 and I’ve noticed my floaters have decreased significantly.

    Reduced almost immediately

    • Colleen Shea says:

      what did you eat

    • flamingpie herman says:

      @Colleen Shea I cut out potatoes and sweet potatoes. I cut out beets spinach and avocados and tea.
      I did eat good meats, such as lamb or pork, eggs–eggs are very good–I also ate skyr yogurt, bananas and a few other fruits to keep my vitamin C levels up. Veggies such as brussel sprouts, kale, asparagus.
      Just get a list of all oxalates and reduce by 80%. I did have coffee, but cut out teas. But for every coffee I had I offset it with more B1.

      I found my joints ached less and my sight was better.

  • Sherry Burns says:

    Hi Dr Berg, I went to my specialist eye doctor and asked him about this floaters and he said they will never go away,they just get worse as you get older. I’m 70 And mine did go away after I started doing Keto. And I came to the conclusion that it was sugar that was causing my eye problems. And he told I was wrong, unbelievable these people are allowed to practice. Thank you for this video 🎉❤

  • S S says:

    Have had floaters for 35 years at least, and usually don’t even notice them unless in bright sunlight. Going to get this stuff to try it out. Thanks doc!

  • Marla Adams says:

    I have had eye floaters since 2016. Got them 6 months after getting the shingles shot. A natural path doctor by the name of Dr Janine Bowring (she has a YouTube channel) mentions using castor oil packs for eye floaters. Thank you Dr Berg for sharing your knowledge about choline/inositol for eye floaters. I started using choline/inositol 2 weeks ago for my fatty liver. I will monitor for eye floaters. I also heard that MSM eye drops was also good for eye floaters but it didn’t work for me.
