Super Exercises To Help You Not Wear Glasses Anymore

staring-computer-screen

The eye is a muscle, and if it isn’t used it can naturally weaken. When muscles aren’t used, one of the basic principles of medicine says that it can lead to atrophy. If the eye muscles don’t get exercised then it can be tough to keep your vision healthy. Lack of exercise comes from people wearing glasses. The glasses make it so the eyes don’t have to work as hard to see things.

 

Many people become dependent on glasses, but there are exercises that can be done to help you see better and more clearly. Just so we are all on the same page, your eyes are not going to bulge from these workouts (haha!). The exercises and tips provided below can help strengthen your eyes and ultimately help improve your eyesight.

 

Rest Your Eyes:

Nowadays we commonly overstrain our eyes. Whether it is looking at our smartphones, watching TV, reading, or working on a computer screen all day, the eyes are working overtime. Take time to relax your eyes throughout the day. Close your eyes every 2-3 hours and let them rest for a few minutes.

 

Finger Focusing:

When you’re standing up, look straight ahead for about three seconds. Then extend a finger on your right hand and hold it about 11 inches in front of your nose. Focus your eyes on the finger for 3-5 seconds and then lower your hand. Repeat this about 8-11 times and remember to alter your focus to near and far distances, focusing on your finger and the background.

 

The Trataka Exercise:

This is a yoga exercise, which is designed to help strengthen your eyes. Place a candle at eye level in the foreground, sit down with your back straight in a cross-legged position, and focus your eyes on the light for a few minutes, trying not to blink. Close your eyes and try to envision a mental image of the burning candle. This helps to strengthen your mind’s eye. Repeat this exercise until you can “see” the candle with your eyes closed.

 

Squeeze Them Shut:

While you’re seated, tightly close your eyes and keep them shut for about a minute. Immediately open them for a full minute and take deep relaxing breaths. This exercise strengthens the eyelid muscles and can improve circulation. You can do this several times a day.

    Q: Hi, I have been reading many of your articles and wanted to know the best herbs and methods to heal crossed eyes. I have been plagued with this issue a long time and now I am eating a raw fruits/vegetable diet. The only problem is, I have been wearing my glasses since I was a kid and my eyes are severely weak. Any help would be great. Thanks!!

    A:

    It's not an herb that can cure a problem. Herbs only assist in healing! You have to prepare yourself for seeing without glasses, so learn some good eye exercises and apply them!

    Q: I would like to ask your opinion about broken capillaries. We are talking about 5 year old child. She has one broken capillary on her hand, since the age of 1 or 2 years old. Then about 9 month ago, after a day on the beach and sunburn, she got another broken capillary on her face, and after that, 3 more on one arm, and 3 on her leg. I showed this to doctor, he ordered full blood count test, which came back normal. This was last December. Before, her eyes had only one red string on her white part of the eye, now she has several of them in both eyes. The fact that worries me the most, is when I open her eyes, on the bottom white part in both eyes, she has wide thick large red capillaries.

    A:

    Sounds like the capillaries are weak! Change the child's diet (less meat, dairy, sodium products). Let the child perform the Children's Detox. Let the child drink Heart Heart Tea daily (1-2 cups), as this will greatly help the child. It seems as if the diet of the child is very insalubrious unless the problem is congenital in origin.

    Q: I have a problem with glaucoma and I have been going to a eye doctor for treatment. I really want another alternative treatment to heal my eyes because I hate taking all these drugs (poisons) into my eyes and suffering from the side-effects that comes with putting that mess in my eyes. I have went to the eye doctor a couple of days ago and was told that my pressure have went down to 20 from 24 and that they are trying to get it down to 15 and they gave me two more eyedrops to take along with one I'm already taking and so I have to take all three eyedrops about 4 times a day. In three weeks if my pressure doesn't go down then they want to do laser surgery. I am very distressed about that because I don't want them cutting on my eyes. So far, I have ordered from you a formula for glaucoma and I hope to recieve it as soon as possible and take it also, I just started drinking blueberry juice, the organic kind. Can you give me advice on what I should do from this point? Let me add that I'm 60 yrs old and afraid I am going to lose my sight and don't want to use the pharmaceuticles mess.

    A:

    If you hate doing a thing, then why do you do it? Really doesn't make any sense in all due honesty. The side effects are telling you the drugs are no good. Read the â€EYE PROBLEMS†article and you will do well to implement what it suggests. Drink the blueberry juice. Perform the FULL BODY DETOX, Beloved. It is not wise to be afraid, Beloved. What you fear will appear pursuant to Universal law. Have faith, Beloved.

    Q: After the laser surgery last year, I have been taking the Eye Formula for high pressure 4 months now. I take 8 tablets a day and I use the an MSM Eye Drops and my pressure drops and my eyes feel very healthy. The doctor told me come back in a year, but about a week ago I started to feel pain in my eyes sometimes sharp sometimes less but all the time. Please advise.

    A:

    Double up on your eye regimen! Eat more blueberries. Take extra capsules of Eye Formula, etc. It would be a good idea for you to perform the Eye Kit. The Eye Kit includes six distinct formulas that are created with the intention of helping your body maintain, restore, and fend off any pending eye issues. These formulas not only are meant to help nourish, repair, and strengthen the eyes, but they also are meant to help maintain a healthy circulation throughout the body.

    Q: I have had corneal transplants in both eyes. One, in Dec 08, and one in Dec 07. Are any of the ingredients in the Full Body Detox, known to be harmful for people with organ transplants?

    A:

    We would need more insight on your health after having the transplant before we can answer your question.  The Full Body Cleanse ingredients does not affect the health of the organs that were transplanted, however some people have to take medication after for a certain period of time.   The cleanse includes activated charcoal, a major part of the detox program, that helps pull out heavy metal toxins and drugs from your body.  Most medications are recognized by the body as chemicals and pulls it from your system.

    Q: Any herbal suggestions for eye floaters specifically? There does not seem to be a cure for them other than having the vitreous solution drained from your eyes (very dangerous) and I think only one doctor in the U.S. will even consider doing that for you. It is supposedly just a natural function of aging, and is worse in people who are nearsighted because of the shape of their eyes. I read about your eye formula but I'm wondering if you have any other known cures?

    A:

    We offer no cures for any disease, just tools (herbal products) that can assist with the healing process.

    We suggest the Eye Kit and Eye Formula. Drink plenty of organic blueberry juice (2-3 cups daily) for additional anti-oxidants.

    Q: My question is what could be causing my puffy eyes? I've had them for probably 6 or 8 months now (maybe more). They sometimes will have a little darkness added to them. Sometimes I wake up and whatever side I've been laying on, that eye will be even more swollen than the other side, but they are usually the puffiest when I first wake up. Sometimes it looks like I've been bopped in the eye in my sleep. I've cut out a lot of the processed foods and stay away from sugars for the most part. I drink only water and juice once a day (5 carrots, 1 green apple, 1" ginger root, handful of parsley and 1/2 beet with greens. I get plenty of rest (although I've always had a hard time feeling rested) but not sure if the eyes have anything to do with rest. It seems more like it has to do with something else internally. What advice can you give and what supplements would you recommend. I'm currently taking your Multi-Vitamins and Minerals formula along with your VITAMIN B COMPLEX (which I love them both). Have been on them for about 1 1/2 weeks now I guess. I also take your CANDIDA BUSTER and the COLON FORMULA (I was having a problem with constipation for the past couple months, did some of your recommended enemas but for some reason my body still seems to get stopped up easily lately).

    A:
