70,000 & Counting – The Effects On Your Eyesight & Health

toxicity-eye-healthIn 1914, the world has changed. The year not only marks the beginning of WWI. It also marks the rise of chemical companies.

Because it is the first war that saw chemical weapons to kill thousands of soldiers at a time. And the companies making them began to flourish. Many of them are still around today. They just don’t make weapons anymore.

When the war came to an end in 1918, these companies had to shift gear. Nobody was going to buy their mustard gas any longer. The war was over.

But some genius had a brilliant idea; if these gases killed people by the drones, they probably also kill insects. And industrialized farming had a problem with pests.

So pesticides were born!

Since then more and more chemicals have been invented. Some to make our life convenient, others to spray on the food. But mostly, because making them out of nothing is a very profitable business.

Fast forward to the 21st century…

We have 10,000 chemical ingredients in food alone. Not just what they spray on it. But also what they add to give the illusion of food.

And we have over 70,000 synthetic chemicals floating around in our environment. They are in the food, water, air, they are everywhere.

The main herbicide of industrial agriculture, glucosamine, is classified as cancer-causing by a UN laboratory in France. Sure, the French are pedantic, but it’s the UN calling the main stuff they spray on conventional food cancer-causing. Have we gone too far?

For your eyesight, for sure!

Because all of these chemicals need to get out of your body. If not, well, you won’t live long… these are small dosages, but they add up by now. And they accumulate in your tissue.

And that’s where your liver comes in. It’s the organ that has to get rid of all of this stuff. It’s your detox organ.

Your eyes are connected to your liver through the energy pathway of the liver. The energy pathway of the liver opens into your eyes. Meaning that when your liver uses more energy that it’s supposed to, your eyesight doesn’t get enough.

These are the energetics of holistic health. And trust me, if you don’t live a detoxifying lifestyle today, your liver is working overtime for sure.

And when your liver can’t handle all the toxicity anymore, your kidney has to jump in to keep your body working. Normally, cleansing is not the kidney’s job. But way too often it has to come to the rescue by now.

And that’s your life energy. That’s your drive. The kidneys are your courage. It’s your confidence. Your self-esteem. And it’s your pride!

You see all the things that are missing in your life today…

But there is hope! That’s exactly why we teach holistic eye health in the Pure Vision Method™. There are ways to minimize the impact of this chemical attack on the body. And it can be surprisingly simple.

You have to attend that area of your life. Not just for your eyesight, but for your life.

Because all bad diseases people die from today come done to this. And it’s not happening over night. It’s a slow process where the body starts to get too toxic over time.

So you have to detox to get everything that’s there right now out. Then you have to start living a detoxifying lifestyle. So all the stuff gets moved out on a daily basis.

Again, we cover all of this in depth in the Pure Vision Method™. It takes up two full modules, so it’s a big area of your eyesight and health to address.

I know, it’s not a very upbeat topic. But it’s a very important one. And somebody has to wake you up to the fact that you need to pay attention.

So, let me know if you have any questions in a comment below…

3 Essential Tips For Choosing Sunglasses

3-essential-sunglass-tipsLast week we had a conversation about UV rays and your eye health. To recap, we discussed that it’s important to protect your eyes during the dangerous sun hours of the day.

But, we also discussed how important to get direct sunlight into your eyes for some time during the day.

Yet, there are also those hours when sunglasses just make life easier. Sure, you need them for protection. Yet in other cases, it’s just about comfort. Like driving in the sun. Or sitting on the lake having a cup of tea overlooking the ducks.

Either way, you should choose sunglasses that offer the best protection for all the hours you need to protect your eye health. So here are 3 tips you should really look out for.

1. UV Protection:

Great sunglasses should be verified to filter out 99% of UVA and UVB rays. If you can find a rating for UVC as well, get it as high as possible. I suspect UVC’s will gain in popularity over the next few years.

Because UVC rays are on the rise with everything that’s going on in the environment.

But let’s not get political. Just make sure your sunglasses will filter out all of them out as much as possible. And make sure that this has been tested.

$10 sunglasses on the streets may have the sticker. They may look the part. But chances are they have never been tested for their UV filter effectivity.

2. Get Polarized Glasses:

Yes, they are in fact better. Because they reduce glare. So this is especially important for that cup of tea next to the lake. Overlooking the ducks with the sun reflecting on the lake.

Polarized glasses are even more important when you spend a lot of time near the water. Or if you are fond of skiing and the snow. In both cases, they will help a lot with the glare and the effect the glare has on your eyesight.

Plus, in traffic, polarized sunglasses just make your life easier. Because they reduce the glare. Not just on all the windows. But also after the rain when the sun comes out you have an easier time staying safe.

3. The Darkness:

Medium darkness is best. Too dark makes it too hard to see. You will have to strain too much too often. Plus, it just messes with your mood.

And if you know anything about what we do, your mood and your emotions heavily affect your eyesight. So sunglasses that are too dark mess with your state.

Too bright, on the other hand, is also not great. It means you still get way too much light into your eyes. That will make your life unnecessarily hard. Especially in traffic, near the water, or in the snow.

So make sure you get a good shade of darkness. One that’s not dimming your light too much. But that is dark enough to keep you safe and relaxed, even in bright sun after a strong rain.

Magic or Fairytale? Does This Herb Improve Eyesight?

bilberry-improves-eyesight-nightvision (1)

Let’s have a look into a little, dark purple berry. Legend has it that British soldiers ate the jam during WWII. And with that jam, their night vision improved…

Cute story… but knowing holistic eyesight, probably not true… because the sugar in the jam would cause a serious sugar crash… and with that the liver has to work overtime to get rid of it…

Plus, boiling any berry to death is going to kill all the antioxidants. And the antioxidant content is what this little berry is hailed from.

So, in case you haven’t heard of it, we are talking about Bilberry.

A relative of the cranberry and the American blueberry. It almost looks like a blue berry, just with dark purple flesh. And that dark purple gives away the higher antioxidant content.

It has been used to help with inflammation and diarreha in Germany for centuries. And in recent years, it’s making waves because of the supposed effects on nightvision.

But the traditional German use shows where the positive effects on eyesight are coming from. Bilberry has a high anti-inflammatory effect. Most eye conditions and diseases have a strong inflammatory component.

In fact, a study in 1996 confirmed that inflammation in the eye caused eye problems. And many eye conditions come with, or as a results of, oxidative inflammation. So taking a herbal supplement high in antioxidants to fight the oxidative damage makes sense.

Plus, if it reduces the inflammation at the same time, the better.

Bilberry also has a positive effect on the blood. The lifestyle of the 21st century is acidifying. Meaning it causes blood cells to stick together. So blood moves slower through the veins.

Therefore oxygen doesn’t travel well through the body.

Bilberry stops that clogging up. Which helps to deliver oxygen throughout the system.

So, is Bilberry worth as supplement?

That depends on the quality! In the roam of supplements, cheap means low quality. But expensive doesn’t necessarily mean good quality…

So, you need to source a high quality, organic, strength verified product. Otherwise, it’ll be full of chemical herbicides and pesticides. They do more damage than good to your eyesight and health.

Of course the benefits are ridiculed by the ophthalmic industry… because anything that could have a benefit to your eyesight that doesn’t include glasses, contacts, or slicing up your eyes is ridiculed…

Some sources suggest to eat local blueberries or blackberries instead.

That could be an alterntaive. But you must make sure they are organically grown. Otherwise, they are strayed to death. These are two of the most sprayed fruits.

So, if it’s not organic, stay away.

Plus, with a Bilberry extract, you get a fortified strength of the helpful active ingredients. WIth blueberries, you have to eat a lot of berries to get the same amount. Plus, you have to be sure that your body is able to absorb the nutrients.

So, Bilberry is really a case of; if you need support, a high quality, organic, strength verified supplement maybe really helpful.

But of course, a supplement will not undo the lack of healthy balanced diet. Thus, if you use a supplement, make sure your diet also reflects your need to improve your health.

And yes, you guessed it, we discuss all of this in depth in the Pure Vision Method™. So stay tuned for the next opening!

Are You Shielding Your Eyes?

are-eyes-shielded

We live in a world of electro smog. Waves we can’t see all around us. When you check your WIFI antenna on your computer, how many networks do you see?

Sure, they are all locked. But their waves are still affecting you!

The ramifications are huge. Especially for people sensitive to EMF’s (Electro Magnetic Frequencies). And the dangers are well known.

Symptoms include:

  • Sleeping problems
  • Fatigue
  • Skin Problems (like rashes and burning sensations)
  • Muscles Aches & Pains
  • Foggy Thinking
  • Depression

… and various cancers, like breast cancer, Leukemia, and others.

The WHO (World Health Organization) is warning. And the German government is advising their citizens to avoid WIFI at home. They suggest sticking to good old cable.

And for your eyes?

EMF’s cause irritation and inflammation. Plus, they are a major cause for stress and joint issues, which also affect your eyesight.

So, what are we supposed to do? We are forced to work in environments full of EMF’s. We live within the vicinity of cell towers. And your neighbours are not going to turn their WIFI off, just because you ask…

Plus, this technology is darn convenient…

There is good news! The problem caused by EMF exposure is similar to what old TV’s had when the earth was not connected. Everything got foggy and snowy.

To fix that on an old TV, you just had to connect the earth. Also known as ‘shield’ or ‘ground’… and the same applies to your body!

Literally, all you have to do is connect to the Earth’s shield. With that, EMF exposure will just get discharged into the ground. So the electrical static build-up gets instantly released.

So, how do you do it?

  1. go to the park, beach, or forest. Walk barefoot on grass, sand, or soil. You’ll instant connect to the shield of the earth.

    With that, you’ll discharge static build-up in your body. Plus, you’ll become part of the Earth’s shield and reject EMF exposure. It’ll bounce off your body, without effect.

  2. if you can, swim in a lake or the ocean. That’s even more powerful.
  3. at work and at home; get grounding mats and beddings. The concept is very simple…

You place your bare feet or body on a mat or bedsheet that is connected to the ground of your house. In effect, it’ll be just like walking barefoot on grass in the park.

You will discharge and static build up. Plus, the EMF exposure won’t do damage to your body. The waves just bounce off because you are part of the Earth’s shield.

You’ll reduce a ton of inflammation. Remember, inflammation causes eye problems. So reducing the stress and inflammation will do wonders for your eyesight and health.

The Ultimate Guide To Keep Your Eyes Sun-Safe

ultimate-guide-to-keep-eyes-sun-safe

When you go to the beach, or spend a whole day out in the sun, chances are you put on sunscreen to protect yourself from sunburn. Do you put some in your eyes too?

Of course not. And you shouldn’t. Yet over 50% of Americans don’t wear sunglasses. That’s a pretty high percentage. Because if you don’t manage UV rays well, they can really damage to your eyesight.

If your eyes don’t get enough sun exposure, it’s not healthy either… so what do you do?

  1. Make sure you protect your eyes in the most important hours. Use sunglasses between 11am and 2.30pm. That’s the time of the day when UV is the strongest and can really burn.

    You see, our family never uses sunscreen. And we never get sunburned. Because we avoid these hours like the plague. Our kids literally never had sunscreen. They never had a sunburn either. So it’s a good practice for your eyes too.

  2. To nourish your eyes, don’t wear sunglasses until 10am. That morning sun is really good for your eyesight. It nourishes your cornea.

    After 4pm, take them sunnies off again! Again, it’s great sun to nourish your eyes with.

  3. Don’t look directly into the sun without protection. Only ever do that when half of the sun is covered behind the horizon.

    In other words; only ever look at the sun directly without protection during the first half of sunrise, and the second half of sunset. Ever!! It’s really bad for your cone cells if you do!

    But sunrise and sunset are amazing for your eye health. Get some of that!

  4. Invest in a great pair of sunglasses. With glass lenses and proper UV protection.

    It’s not about fashion (although it can be)! It’s about maintaining your eye health. That’s way more important than looking good. It’ll be the difference between seeing well or not.

    But they make good looking ones with glass lenses too. You just have to dig a bit more.

  5. Eat more green leafy vegetables. They are high in lutein. Lutein acts like a blue light filter in your macular. It will protect your light sensitivity.
  6. Stop Smoking… seriously, it’s the 21st century! Smoking is so 1950… well, I did it in the 1990’s, but seriously… it’s time to stop!

    We can’t pretend that we don’t know the health damage anymore. Plus, smoking really affects your eye health.

  7. For the elderly; if you are above 65, be more careful! But keep nourishing your eyes during the morning hours and the later afternoon. Don’t be afraid of the sun, be careful!

If you follow these guidelines, you’ll be fine! Nothing more to do…

I’m not for all this “get tested regularly” because of sunlight… they’ll probably just give you glasses, eye drops, or something because you are there at the test…

Just be sun-smart!

But don’t buy into that ridiculous “sun fear mongering”… it’s way overrated!

Today research shows that too little sunlight causes skin cancer, not too much. So just be smart. Don’t listen to all the hype!

Better avoid the dangerous sun and nourish your eyes and skin than burning chemicals right into it… no traditional culture has spent time outside in the lunchtime sun…

This a modern phenomena of “sun baking” is just stupid… sorry, if I offend you there!

You know the “siesta”? That’s a way to avoid lunchtime sun. It ensures you only get out in the healthy, safe sun. That’s why so many cultures from sunny areas practice it.

Only Westerners travel to the beach and bake all day over lunch. Nobody that grows up with the sun would do that. It’s just not necessary. It’s dangerous!

So, what’s your experience? Let me know in a comment below…

The History of Astigmatism

I just posted a long article about the Definition of Astigmatism. What’s amazing is the history of it.

I had no idea where it came from… for how long people were describing the symptoms of astigmatism… and that an astronomer came up with the first lens to correct it…

It’s amazing that it wasn’t eye doctors coming up with glasses and lenses… makes you wonder what “eye specialists” really specialize in… prescribing crutches?

The biggest specialty – fashion advice. Profession – selling the damn things… it’s mind boggling that physicists and astronomers came up with the most popular tool to correct eyesight…

Anyways, you can check it out here. It’s a good read.

Are Your Eyes Drying Up?

eyes-drying-up-fatsThere are good fats… there are bad fats… and there are low-fat products… it’s one of the worst inventions of the food industry!

Because they take the fat out and put a lot of sugar in to make up for the cardboard taste… and your health is suffering…

Your body needs fats!

Good fats, not the hydrogenated stuff in the deep friers in fast food restaurants. I mean high-quality fat.

Without it, your body is not working properly. Without fats, your eyes will dry up.

And good fat doesn’t make you fat… sugar does, bad fats do, and toxicity does… but good fats help you to lose weight!

For example, you’ll have a hard time getting overweight and obese by eating avocados. They are high in fat, but high in good fats.

In fact, you must eat good fats, if you want to lose weight. Because the toxic fat from your fat cells needs good fat to move out of the body…

The most important aspect for your eyes is your tears. Your tears are made up of water, oil, and mucus. So, if you are lacking good fats in your diet, your eyes will become dry and itchy.

Combine that with staring at screens for most of the day and you have a real problem. Your eyes get dry and itchy. And eye drops would be the worst solution…

Because they stop your eyes from making high-quality tears altogether…

So, if you suffer a lot from dry eyes during the day, buy a bottle of good organic olive oil and put one or two tablespoons extra on every meal…

Or add an avocado to your lunch… or snack on a handful of macadamia nuts twice a day! Just don’t overdo the nuts… they are so good, they can become addictive… (ask me how I know…)

Fats are an important part of your body’s makeup. Your body is designed to burn fat. Sugar is only around since the mid-1800’s. We are actually designed to burn fat as our fuel, not sugar.

Sugar is just really profitable for the food industry.

So, just turn it around… get rid of unhealthy (often hidden) sugars in your life, and add more high-quality fats. Your body and eyes will thank you for it!

Do you get enough fats in your diet? Or are you falling for the low-fat craze? Let me know in a comment below…

How Are You Talking To Your Body & Eyes?

talking-to-body-eyesThis one is quite out there. But it’s important, so stay with me. Your optometrist won’t talk about this one. That doesn’t render it unimportant…

Quite opposite is true…

So, the human body is made up of 70-80% of water. All our cells are full of water.

A substantial body of research is investigating the properties of water at the moment. Because we know surprisingly little about water. And the properties are amazing.

For example, the density of water is less when frozen. That’s why ice floats. Almost no other liquid is doing that.

Water can defy gravity when traveling up hills and inside tree trunks. Again, there is no other substance known to do that.

Plus, water has memory. Memory of its environment. And depending on the state of the environment, the crystalline structure of the water changes.

That’s why you start hearing about structured water. It’s water where the crystalline structure is optimized.

If sounds too out there for you, brace yourself… we are just getting started.

Some research has shown how the molecular structure of water changes depending on the way researchers talked to the water…

Harsh criticism and swearing created crippled water molecules. While gratitude and expressions of love improved the structure and created beautiful molecules.

Also music changed the water. Heavy metal churned out very ugly crystals. Mozart’s melodies repaired the water structure…

So, coming back to your body being 70 – 80% water… how do you talk to your body and eyes?

Are you nice? Do you criticize them when things don’t go your way? How much love and gratitude are you sending every day?

One thing is for sure; negative emotional states are linked to illnesses like cancer. Bitterness is linked to diabetes. And there are people that cured themselves from terminal illness by laughing their hearts out with comedies.

So, whether this is too woo-woo for you or not. Give it a go!

Try to speak only nicely to yourself and your body. Thank your body and eyes that they allow you to experience your life!

Because without eyes you’d be blind… and life wouldn’t be the same. It’s time to appreciate and show some gratitude…

I recently got a really bad infection on my left arm. After that was healed, my middle finger on the right hand swelled up like crazy. I had an open wound for weeks with tons of pus in there… it was really ugly…

These are the moments when your arms and hands don’t work properly and you are down with temperature and you can’t do anything… that’s the moments you remember how useful your body is… how you take it for granted!

Yet there is nothing stopping you to appreciate your body than yourself!

Don’t just laugh it off – try it out. Start with 7 days and see what happens…

You may just feel amazing… and if not, what did you lose?

7 days of anger directed at yourself? Exactly, start right now!

Specifically, talk really nicely to your eyes and see how they feel more relaxed. Notice how you’ll see better… how colors get more vibrant…

Try it out. Then report back, and let me know how you go in a comment below…

Why Did You Get Eye Problems In The First Place?

why-did-I-get-eye-problems-in-first-place“Why Did I Get Eye Problems In The First Place?”

Great question!

Is it genetic? Is it because you read too much? Is it because you don’t use enough light at night? Or is it because of computers?

Science can’t find a connection to genetics. Any research study into that direction shows the opposite. Within the same gene pool, other factors cause eye problems.

So it’s not because your parents have it. Or because “it runs in the family”…

Reading, light, and computers also didn’t prove to be a factor. There isn’t a study available that connects computer use, reading, or bad light to eye problems.

Yet, whenever a study is done to research one of these aspects, another factor comes up:

Lifestyle!

Stress, diet, and posture continue to show definite reasons. So when we talk about hereditary eye conditions, it’s more the habits we inherit than the genes.

You see, before you were even three years old, all you did was observing your parents. Everybody does the same. It’s called modelling.

In that age bracket, we have no conscious faculties in our mind to analyze if our parents’ habits are serving them or not.

That’s where the “oh, you are just like your mom” or “you are just like your dad” comes from. We take on the way we deal with stress. We model their posture. And we like the foods they like, just because they do.

And that is the key to inheriting eye conditions.

But the other factor is much harder to detect. Your optic nerve enters right into your emotional brain. It’s the Old Brain that doesn’t think. It’s only concerned with your survival.

Because of that, every eye problem has an emotional pattern attached to it. Some are fear of the future. Others are resentment of the past. Or dwelling on the should have’s and could have’s in life.

And then there is a dislike of the self. With some eye conditions you just try to avoid seeing an aspect of yourself, you are not happy about.

Now go back to the time you got your first pair of glasses. The day that you found out that you have eye problems.

Go another two years back. Within that timeframe, within these two years, analyze what happened to you emotionally. What was upsetting to you? How did you get hurt?

That’s the true starting point of your eye problem!

Whatever eye condition you have, there is an emotional underlying reason for it. Uncover that, and you at least know what to work with.

Of course, that’s something we do in-depth in the Pure Vision Method™…

Does this make sense? If not, ask questions in a comment below.

If yes, let me know if you can pinpoint that moment in your life.
