In addition to treating deficiency syndromes, vitamin A has several potential preventive and therapeutic uses. Vitamin A is important "medicine" for the immune system. It keeps skin and mucous membrane cells healthy. When membranes are healthy they stay moist and resistant to cell damage. The moistness inhibits bacteria and viruses from "putting down stakes" and starting infectious diseases.
Healthy cells are also resistant to cancers. Vitamin A fights cancer by inhibiting the production of DNA in cancerous cells. It slows down tumor growth in established cancers and may keep leukemia cells from dividing.
This vitamin is particularly helpful in diseases caused by viruses. Measles, respiratory viruses, and even human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the virus that causes AIDS, may retreat in the presence of vitamin A. Blood levels of vitamin A are often low in people with viral illnesses. After receiving additional amounts of this vitamin, the body is able to mount its defenses, often resulting in a quicker recovery. However, vitamin A can also increase the risk of infections, according to the findings of a recent study. In HIV infection, for instance, preformed vitamin A may also encourage HIV to replicate, so limiting the intake of vitamin A is the best bet for these patients.
Stroke victims who have high levels of vitamin A in their systems are less likely to die or suffer disabilities from the stroke. Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables is a good defense against stroke and its complications.
Topical application of vitamin A helps relieve dry-eye disorder. When tear production and lubrication stop, the resulting dry eyes can be extremely uncomfortable. Many treatment avenues are often disappointing, with the exception of vitamin A eyedrops. Used clinically, these drops improve cell function and moistness returns to the eyes.
Vitamin A taken orally and applied topically looks promising in preventing and possibly even treating skin cancers. It may be helpful, too, in lightening liver spots, those dark spots that often appear on aging skin. Topical application used in one study significantly lightened liver spots within one month.

STATEMENT OF INTENT:
I practice traditional herbalism, not allopathic medicine. I ask my clients to exercise their health freedoms responsibly, and to agree that you understand that I am not an allopathic medical practitioner. I also ask that clients use herbs as directed. Herbs work best when integrated with all other habits which support health and healing. Such directives may include diet changes, getting needed rest (particularly for children), avoiding toxic environments, avoiding improper combinations of pharmaceutical drugs with food and herbs, and seeking adjunct and necessary therapies and practices for optimal health. Herbs and herbal formulas and products are discussed on this web site solely within the context of the field of traditional herbal arts and sciences, and not within the context of allopathic medical practice. You may e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss any specific questions you may have for herbal and natural therapies.
