Natural Remedies for Eyes

Your eyes are the window to this beautiful world. You can have better vision naturally through a healthy diet, and using natural supplements.

Sometimes vision problems are hereditary, but oft times they come when we don’t want to “see something” we need to change in our lives. As this happens, the eyes weaken and we may need glasses, or some other visional aid. Modern medicine can do some amazing surgeries for a myriad of vision problems and injuries.

Watching too much television and computers may weaken eyes because we don’t look around and get the depth perception, so the eye muscles are not exercised like they should be.

Thousands of my clients over the years can attest to the value of eating healthy. It is great prevention for many health problems. Make sure your are eating a diet of pure and natural foods while staying away from tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black tea, soda, and fast food. In Chinese medicine, liver health is directly connected to the health of the eyes. These dietary recommendations benefit the liver, and therefore the eyes.

Supplements for the eyes include: Vitamin A (fish-oil based) is important to eye health. 10,000 IU per day is safe to use. Amazingly, it only takes one 25,000 IU capsule per year to save the sight of a child living in a third-world country. Lutein is a supplement that is rich in antioxidants for the eyes. Use 25-50 milligrams per day.
