Read where a nun took or ate Peperomia Pellucida raw as a salad (Vietnam) herb. It cured her cataracts. Just wondering. I don’t care for surgery.

I am not familiar with this herb being used in this way. Peperomia pellucida has been researched and used for its anti-bacterial, anti- fungal, anti-inflammatory and analgesic activity.

For more information on herbs for cataracts, please see:
