Tired of Wearing Prescription Glasses? Five Simple Steps to Renew Your Vision
It all starts with a positive attitude, then diet, exercise, a clean intestinal tract and light all play important roles in maintaining healthy eyes. Believe it or not, preservation of the eyes starts with taking off your glasses. Wearing glasses keeps your eyes in a constant state of tension which only sustains poor vision. With the glasses off, most people feel a sense of fatigue settle over their body. Palming is an easy way to combat this.
Rub the palms of your hands briskly for a few minutes to create friction. Then gently place the bottom of your palms on the bone directly underneath your eyes. Cover your eyes completely, resting your fingers on the top of your forehead or hairline. Make sure your back is straight as you sit silently in the darkness. Sitting backwards in an armless chair with your elbows resting on the back of the chair works well. Then, visualize a happy time in your life. Languish in this virtual reality. Breath slowly and deeply and fill your lungs with new air. As you breathe, feel the joyful event, moment by moment. Do this five to ten minutes several times a day. You will be amazed at how well rested your whole body will begin to feel.
If you are having a hard time focusing while reading, remember to blink. Blinking more frequently and moving your head in the direction of whatever you are focusing on while you read, drive or walk rejuvenates your eyes.
Real rejuvenation can only start with a clean colon. The quote, "the eyes are the windows to the soul" could be a reference to our intestinal tract. A clean colon plays a major role in healthy eyes. How can our spirits soar if our intestinal tract is all clogged up? Seeing clearly is literally about being clear and clean on the inside so that we may shine (being productive, happy and positive) in our daily lives. Therefore, I also recommend a simple juice cleanse to move us along.
Juicing carrots (which are good for the eyes), beets and celery (which are full of organic salt that breaks down in the body quickly) is a wonderful juice combination. The fiber helps your body assimilate and absorb the necessary vitamins and minerals.
Vitamins and minerals are absorbed through light which is just as important for the health of your eyes and your overall well being. In our modern society we tend to hide our eyes from light by always wearing sunglasses anytime we are outside. While our skin needs certain amounts of Vitamin D from the sun, so do our eyes. In fact, our bodies absorb the Vitamin D easier when it comes in directly through the eyes. If your eyes are sensitive to light without glasses, it usually indicates some toxicity within your body. Since light is a major form of nutrition, your eyes and body benefit tremendously if you go outside and close your eyes for at least ten minutes a day absorbing the suns rays.
Light not only affects your body directly but also affects you indirectly through the foods you eat. Eating high on the food chain (animal products) or consuming many junk, fast, frozen, irradiated or heavily processed foods significantly reduces and/or totally eliminates light's nutritional value within that food. An example of this would be the nutritional difference between a fresh green apple and a piece of processed hard candy. The most light filled foods are blue green algae and organically grown fruits and vegetables.
And last but not least, consider this from the Humor Project in New York: Laughing 100 times a day is equal to a ten minute session of rowing. So, why sweat when you can laugh? Be seeing you.
