10 Ways To Improve Your Vision

Over the past years, there has been a marked in­crease in the number of people who wear glasses and contact lenses. This can be put down to drasti­cally increased computer usage both at home and at work, and increased TV watching. Good news for opticians around the world – bad news for us. I hear complaints about the eyes related problems almost daily, some people have the dry eyes and must use the eye drops daily, others have excess fluid in the eyes which creates fuzzy vision and difficulties read­ing. This article provides techniques that help im­prove the health of your eyes and prevent develop­ing eye-related illnesses.

Your eyes need regular exercise and supply of energy in order to be healthy, just like any other muscle in the body. Your eyes may eventu­ally give up on you and you will need glasses or contact lenses. This doesn’t have to be the case if you regularly take care of your eyes. In this article, I will show you how you can care for your eyes naturally so you can have great vision at any age.

If you start wearing glasses or contact lenses your eyesight will only get worse over time rather than get better as your eyes will get used to the new lenses and need even stronger lenses to function properly. Everybody who wears glasses and contacts will tell you their eyes have grad u-ally got worse over time.

Conditions such as Chronic Dry Eyes, optic neuritis, glaucoma are often associated with chronic health problems. The imbal­ance in the body can manifest in the eyes, just as the health of the eyes is frequently an indicator of the illness or imbalance in the particular organ or other location in the body.

Puffiness and Dark Circles?

Puffiness in the eye area is either caused by a pool of liquid or a pool of mucus both of which are caused by issues with the kidneys. The type caused by pools of liquid is often caused by excessive liquid intake over­working the kidneys with frequent urination, leading to inflammation.

The second type, caused by accu­mulation of mucus and fat directly correlates to built-up mucus and fat in and around the kidneys and other organs in that region of the body. The consumption of mucus and fat-containing foods such as dairy products, meat, poultry, sug­ar, refined grains, and oils. Reduc­ing or eliminating these foods from one’s diet will not only reduce or eliminate puffy eyelids and eye bags but will also correct the inter­nal cause. Regular detoxification efforts will also be beneficial.

Dark Circles under the eyes typically indicate the problems or disorders with the kidneys, and adrenal and gonad hormones. These problems can stem from issues with reproductive or excretory functions which are often caused by the ex­cessive consumption of salty, roasted, baked, or dried foods. A yellowish tone in the eye area is directly related to an over-functioning liver and gallbladder.

A gray discoloration can not only indicate an issue with the kidneys, but also with the lungs, endocrine and lymph systems, and reproduc­tive system. These issues can be caused by excessive ingestion of yang foods such as salt, dairy, ani­mal fats, and meat. It can also indicate a lack of oxygen in the body and is often present with smokers.

Poor Eye Health Indicates Dysfunction in Organs

My approach to treating eye related problems is to correct the under­lined energy systems that support the eyes and to promote the blood circulation to the eyes. I have used these techniques on myself and my clients for many years to correct a wide range of eye problems. If your notice that your vision suddenly gets worse, it can be energetically related to the dysfunction in the Kidney, Liver, or Stom­ach meridians.

Holding Acupressure Sedating, Strengthen­ing and Control points for Kidney, Liver, or Stomach meridians helps to balance many eye related issues. Your energy medicine practitioner can determine if these meridi­ans are over or under energized and bal­ance them.

When you are treated for an eye condition with using the methods described here, any underlying imbal­ances that are attributing to your symptoms will be reduced. These techniques can be helpful in treating the following conditions:

  • Glaucoma
  • Floaters
  • Cataracts
  • Eye Allergies
  • Macular Degeneration Optic Atrophy
  • Night Blindness
  • Chronic Dry Eyes
  • Tired or Twitching Eyes Bad Night Vision
  • Circles Under Eyes

Natural Ways to Improve Eye Health

There are many Acupuncture Points located around the eyes that promote eye health. These points bring energy and blood to the eyes and allow nourish­ing the tissue around the eyes.

Visual information from the eyes is processed in the occipital area of the brain, located in the back of the head. Bladder meridian passes through the eyes as well as the occipital (back) part of the brain. Activating points of the Bladder meridian is very effective in re­lieving the painful symptoms. These points are located on both sides of the face. Apply a deep pressure with thumbs, index, or middle fingers of both hands for 2-4 minutes:

Exercises To Strengthen Eye Muscles


Blinking is an often overlooked yet simple way to keep your eyes fresh and being able to focus longer. Computer users and television watchers tend to blink less, es­pecially when they are intently focused on something.

After you have done this for two minutes, mentally take note of how your eyes feel, are they strained, re­laxed, tired.

Whenever you blink your eyes are going into a brief period of darkness which helps to keep your eyes fresh and discharges previous information. This also helps to reduce eye strain.


Palming is done to relieve stress around the eyes and as a way to relax your eyes while taking a break. It gives you the op­portunity to rest your mind and your eyes for a few minutes at a time. Palming

brings increased flow of energy to your eyes and balances the brain circuits that receive visual stimuli

  • Make yourself comfortable whilst leaning forward on a desk or with your elbows resting on your knees. Close your eyes.
  • Place your two palms over your eyes, your fingers on your forehead and the heel of your hands resting on your cheekbones.
  • If possible, extend your thumbs to cover the temples. Cross the baby fingers over the 3rd eye or cross one hand over the other.

  • Imagine a giant horizontal figure of eight in front of you about 10 feet in front of you and mentally turn it on its side.
  • Trace it one way for a few minutes and then the other way for a few minutes.
  • Try figure-8-ting both eyes with fingers of one hand using a ‘Metabolizing 8’ that meets at the center. This helps the eyes to metabolize light, stimulation, and stress as well as increases coordi­nation and communication between the eyes and the brain.

Essential Nutrients For Your Eyes

Lutein and Zeaxanthin

Lutein and Zeaxanthin compounds are carotenoids related to beta-carotene. They are both found in large quantities in the lens and retina of the eyes. Their function is to protect the eyes from damage caused by free radicals, which can interact with and break down healthy tissue. Lutein and Zeaxanthin help protect the eyes by filtering high-energy blue light protecting underlying cell layers from potential light damage. Lutein and Zeaxanthin are found in yellow and orange fruits & vegetables, dark green, leafy vegetables and egg yolks.

Alpha Lipoic Acid

Alpha Lipoic Acid increases glutathione levels in the body. It is a naturally produced antioxidant that protects against cataracts in the eye and helps dissolve toxic substances in the liver.


Vitamin A helps prevent night blindness, stops the formation of cataracts, and may prevent blindness from macular degeneration.

Vitamin C helps the eye’s production of aqueous humor and the reformation of the cornea. It also helps to reduce the risk of cataracts.

Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant shown to prevent cataracts and helps prevent macular degeneration.

Vitamin B12 helps the eye shield protein in the lens.

The 3 Most Important Tools to Gain Power

PowerBy now, everyone knows about the importance of  mindset. Most people are not aware that they have power to change their reality… 

They can accept an idea about changing their jobs, their relationships, their residence, but not an idea about receiving EVERYTHING they desire.
20 years ago I did not believe that I would ever have the lifestyle that I have now.
I believed that someone else was in charge of my destiny, my career, my health, my business, and my relationships…
Over the years I have discovered that such a mindset does not allow for my power and creativity to be present in my life.
I have been searching for the sources of real power and how it can be used to create my reality EXACTLY THE WAY I WANT IT.
Have you ever heard yourself saying “I will do it when I have… then I’ll be happy and satisfied.”   I grew up with this mindset… 
I have realized that living from “some day” kills my inspiration and my dreams. That’s why I would like to share with you 3 important tools designed to shift the energy and connect you with your personal power…
The following tools will help you get ready to have a life filled with excitement, joy and anticipation!

 The 3 Most Important Tools to Gain Your Power 

Power Tool #1:

  • Look at your accomplishments, your friends, the kind of job you always wanted to do, and the material things you wanted to acquire.
  • Sit quietly and get into this feeling for 10-15 minutes. I know it can be overwhelming, but stay with it anyway.
  • If your mind wanders, gently bring it back.
  • Write your insights in your journal.

Power Tool #2:

  • Count all your blessings and notice how much ‘good’ is provided to you every day.
  • Realize that the Universe wants to give you more, as long as you appreciate what you already have.
  • Remember, the more frustrated you are about your situation, the more frustration you will attract into your life.

Power Tool #3:

One randomly selected participant will receive the following:  

  • BIOFIELD BODY SCAN with GDV CAMERA ($99 Value).  
  • BIOFIELD SCAN REPORT generated by the GDV Camera. Report contains detail analysis of 14 meridians, 7 chakras, all organs, and systems. You may take a printed report with you.

Biowell device utilizes a weak, electrical current applied to the fingertips for less than a millisecond. The body’s response to this stimulus is the formation of a variation of an “electron cloud” composed of light energy photons. The electronic “glow” of this discharge (invisible to the human eye) is captured by an optical camera system and then translated into a digital computer file… continue reading….
