Different problems require different solutions, so take the time to find out what’s best for your eyes. Program Better Vision
Wearing glasses gets to be very expensive, and, if you are active, it gets annoying. We have all gone through the problems of misplacing our glasses. Or, we are out on a beautiful summer day, it’s hot, and they keep slipping off our noses. Or worse yet, they slide right off and fall to the ground.
We live in a world of “learn to help yourself” of alternative methods, of trying out natural ways. Of course, you should never replace a professional doctor, but you do need to become pro active in your vision care.
There are 3 ways to improve vision naturally that Doctor Oz recommends,
1 Eat the proper foods that contain the proper vitamins and minerals that your eyes require to remain healthy.
Of course, we know how the many benefits and also the need for vitamins A, and vitamin C, and vitamin E, and our eyes also need certain minerals such as copper and also zinc. These are essential for our eyesight.
And who has
not heard of antioxidants, which include: beta-carotene, and lutein, and also zeaxanthin. One way to get antioxidants is from dark -leafy greens, and from egg yolks, from yellow peppers, and pumpkin, also from sweet potatoes, and carrots. Did you notice the color pattern here? Research shows that eating yellow and green vegetables can help to prevent age related macular degeneration which is the leading cause for blindness .
Sulphur rich foods like cysteine and lecithin can help protect your lens from cataract formation. Make choices such as: garlic, and onions, and shallots, and capers.
We surely have all heard of the many benefits of blueberries, and bilberries for our eyes.
Omega 3: DHA a fatty acid found in cold water fish such as in wild salmon, in sardines, in mackerel, and in cod. DHA gives structural support for your cell membranes. Omega 3 boosts eye health.
2 Use Eye Exercises
Eye exercises are well known to many celebreties, to sports people and coaches.
As is normal, there is a constant tug of war between doctors (except Dr Oz) and natural remedies. I can’t figure out why all doctors cannot work hand in hand, combining both traditional medicine, and natural remedies.
Dr. Oz Promotes Eye Exercises
These easy exercises will help maintain the best vision and they could also keep your annoying floaters away. Do the exercises in the morning, before you go to bed, and when you feel tired during the day. First, wash and clean your hands, then, try and relax. Do this daily, and you will see results within a month… try it out, give it a shot.
This first “exercise” is an age old exercise for your eyes called “palming”. Warm your hands up, one way is to rub your palms together (NOT HOT), cup them (without touching your eyes) over your closed eyes about five seconds. Do this 3 times.
Exercise 2: Roll your eyes, starting by looking up and slowly circle, about 10 times clockwise and then 10 times counterclockwise. You can do this with your eyes closed.
Exercise 3: This is a focus exercise: Take a pen and hold it at arm’s length, then focus your eyes right on it. Slowly bring your arm to about 6 inches from your eyes, always focusing on the pen. And then, slowly move the pen back to arm’s length again. Always keep your focus on the pen, and do this for about 10 times..
Take time to close your eyes, relax. Even if you do this only for a few minutes, it helps relax the stress of your eyes.
