Balanced Acid-Alkaline to Combat Free Radicals

Your body cells need a balanced acid-and-alkaline environment to fight against free radicals. Acid and alkaline are substances that have opposing qualities. Your body functions at its best when the pH is optimum, which is slightly alkaline. The pH of your blood, tissues, and body fluids directly affect the state of your cellular health, in particular, that of the eye.

The pH scale ranges between one and fourteen. Seven is considered neutral. Anything below seven is considered acidic, while anything above seven is considered alkaline. Deviations above or below a 7.30 and 7.40 pH range can signal potentially serious and even dangerous symptoms, forewarning you of a disease in process.

When your body is too acidic, the tissues of your cells are forced to relinquish their alkaline reserves, depleting them of alkaline minerals, which are the components of the tissues themselves.

Over acidification comes from excess intake of foods containing great amounts of acid (animal proteins, sugar), and insufficient elimination by the body through the kidneys (urination) and the skin (sweating).

Alkaline foods contain little or no acid substances, and they do not produce acids when metabolized by your body. Alkaline foods include: green vegetables; colored vegetables (except tomato); chestnut; potato; avocado; black olives; bananas; dried fruits; almonds and Brazil nuts; alkaline mineral waters; cold-pressed oils (e.g. olive oil).

Alkaline medicinal plants also maintain the optimum pH level.

Black currant fruits are a good source of vitamin C and other vitamins and minerals, including an omega-6 fatty acid to increase blood flow to the eye.

Cranberry has been in use since the Iron Age, but the Romans were the first to recognize its medicinal values. Cranberry contains anti-asthmatic compounds, and is high in vitamin C and antioxidants. Eat fresh or dried cranberry, not the sugar-loaded cranberry juice obtainable in the supermarket.

Alkaline energy boosters can enhance your alkalinity to fight against free radicals.

Blackstrap molasses is an excellent source of iron and calcium, copper, magnesium, manganese, and potassium.
Make a healthy alkaline drink with a tablespoon of organic blackstrap molasses (mixed in some hot water first) and ¾ cup of soymilk. Add ice.

Cod liver oil, which comes from fatty fish, such as salmon and sardines, is rich in vitamin A and vitamin D, and essential omega 3 oils. It enhances the absorption of calcium and maintains a constant level of blood calcium. Cod liver oil improves brain functions and the nervous system, which play a pivotal part in vision health.

Alkaline supplements, such as coral calcium, can keep all mineral levels up, and each and every mineral in balance. Alkaline supplements should contain calcium (Ca), sodium (Na), silica and copper, and other minerals to aid de-acidification of the body. More importantly, they should contain every mineral in similar proportion to that found in the human body. Remember, the human body functions synergistically: the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Every mineral has its crucial role to play in the human anatomy, including the eye.

Essential Fatty Acids

The high consumption of foods loaded with saturated fats and cholesterol, as well as man-made fats in egg substitutes, margarines, and basked foods, has led to a host of age-related eye disorders, such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, and retinal vein occlusion, among others. The explanation is that the tiny blood vessels located in the eye may become easily clogged with fats and other deposits that may cause eye problems.

The omega-3 fats, on the other hand, are good fats that help the normal functioning of the eye:

Regulating eye pressure

Moistening the eye

Relieving spasms in the eyelids

Reducing the eye’s sensitivity to the sun
Boosting the immune system

The omega-3 fats are found in chestnuts, flax seed, northern beans, soy, walnuts, wheat germ, and fish, such as cod, mackerel, salmon, and tuna.

For the omega-3 fats to be potent in protecting against free radicals, they must be combined with antioxidants.

Vision Loss

Your eyes are one of the most important organs in your body. It is through your vision that you mainly perceive the world and what is happening around you. However, as you get into your golden years (that is 65 and beyond), you will have some deterioration in your vision. As a matter of fact, vision loss begins as early as in the 30s, and its initial deterioration is gradual and almost unnoticeable. But it begins to accelerate in the 40s and 50s. Now, if you are already in your golden years, you might have much impaired vision, especially they could have been aggravated by your decline in health, such as getting diabetes. Getting older will take its toll on your body in many ways and your vision loss is just one thing that will start to deteriorate noticeably with age.

Some of the obvious signs and symptoms of vision loss are: difficulty in focusing (slower and less accurate)—a condition known as presbyopia, which is caused by the hardening of the eyes’ lenses; difficulty in seeing either long or short distances—these eye conditions that are known as either nearsightedness or farsightedness.

Presbyopia will result in difficulty to read or doing work that requires accurate focus; nearsightedness or farsightedness may require you to wear bifocals or different eyeglasses.

Other problematic issues with vision loss include an increased risk of age-related eye diseases, such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and cataracts. These eye problems can lead to severe eyesight issues, even blindness, if they are not taken care of immediately.

In your golden years, take extra care of your vision health and eyesight issues to reduce the risk of blindness further down the road. Check your health, especially your eye health, on a regular basis. This may play a pivotal role in preventing further deterioration or even blindness. Prevention is always better than a cure. Eat a healthy diet to get all the nutrients to your eyes. Do eye exercises; if you exercise the muscles in your body, you should also exercise the muscles in your eyes, because they are responsible for your vision health. Use eye exercises to help correct nearsightedness, farsightedness or presbyopia. Eye exercises are easy and simple to do and you can even do them in your own home. For eye exercises to work, you must be persistent

Make sure that you have eye tests done at least twice a year and if you start to notice a decline in your ability to focus or see clearly.

Most vision problems, whether nearsightedness, farsightedness, or presbyopia, have to do with eye stress and strain affecting the shape of the eyes, and hence their capability to focus correctly. Of course, the eyes cannot be relaxed if the body and mind are not.

Your Golden Years and Santa Claus shows you the wisdom in happy and successful aging in the golden years. It is a holistic and comprehensive approach to dealing with vision loss and other health issues, as well as changes and challenges, encountered late in life.

Diet to Treat Macular Degeneration

The macula is a small central part of the retina for detailed vision. Macular degeneration is a slow, progressive disease that affects both eyes, typically one after the other. Due to its slow development, macular degeneration may take years to be noticeable. Macular degeneration affects as many as 30 million Americans aged 65 and above. If you are 65, you have 25 percent of developing macular degeneration; your risk increases to 30 percent if you are over 75.

Macula degeneration may be due to various reasons

hereditary
hypertension
high cholesterol
 sun damage
smoking

According to conventional Western medicine, macular degeneration is incurable. But macular degeneration can be treated naturally with:

High doses of antioxidants and minerals from your diet: beta-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E, and zinc

Beta-carotene enables your body to convert plants into vitamin A and to boost normal cell reproduction in the eye, thereby protecting the eye from free radicals and improving night vision,

Vitamin C boosts and strengthens your immune system, and is a potent agent for making collagen to maintain healthy blood vessels in the eye.

Vitamin E is an antioxidant that protects cell membranes.

Zinc, a mineral required by more than 300 enzymes to repair wounds, optimizes vision health, and protects the eye from free radicals.

Remember, with the exception of vitamin D from sunlight, your body does not make your own vitamins and minerals; you must obtain the above from your diet. Antioxidants and vitamins and minerals are critical to vision health in preventing and treating generative diseases, such as macular degeneration.

Nutritional supplements: lutein, Taurine, DHA, and ginkgo biloba

Lutein, a carotenoid found in vegetables and fruits, such as collard greens, kale, and spinach, promotes vision health through its potent antioxidant properties.

Taurine promotes retinal health and improves nigh vision by transporting nutrients to the eye as well as eliminating toxic accumulation in the eye

DHA, an essential Omega-3 fatty acid, enhances the development of the retina.

Ginkgo biloba is an ancient Chinese herb for vision health.

For more information on vision health, read my book: Vision Self-HealingSelf-Help: to get the paperback edition, click here; to get the digital copy, click here.

Yes, macular degeneration is treatable. Albert Einstein once said: "There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle." Believe in a miracle cure, even for macular degeneration. Change your lifestyle and your diet. More importantly, change your mindset.

Vision Nutrition

The prerequisite for vision health is vision nutrition, which builds healthy eye muscles, nerves, and blood vessels—the components of healthy eyes and perfect vision.

Self-healing is your own personal responsibility, just as Hippocrates, the father of medicine, once said: "Your food should be your medicine, and your medicine should be your food." Make food your medicine. Heal your eye problems and improve your vision with diet and nutrition. Vision nutrition is your best preventive medicine against any chronic eye problem.

It can prevent any eye disorder.
It can reverse any disorder you may already have developed.
It can preserve and protect your remaining vision for the rest of your life.

Vision nutrition is your resource in self-healing. Prevention is always better than cure.

Antioxidants to Fight Free Radicals

Vision nutrition is the most powerful weapon against free radicals, which are involved in the development of virtually all eye disorders, including cataracts, retinal disease, macular degeneration, and glaucoma, in the cellular level.

 Free Radicals Damage Your Vision

Antioxidants are powerful scavengers of free radicals in your body. They are substances in foods that disarm free radicals. Antioxidants include beta-carotene, coenzyme Q10, and vitamins A, C, and E.

The fluid that fills the front of your eye (known as aqueous) has one of the highest levels of vitamin C in your body. The retina at the back of your eye requires a good supply of antioxidant nutrients from your bloodstream.

Unfortunately, as you continue to age, your body produces fewer anti-oxidants, resulting in less protection of your eyes from oxidation.

In addition, the strong UV rays from the sun can burn or “oxidize” the retinal cells at the back you eyes, leading to loss of central vision. But lack of sunlight over many years can also destroy your retinal cells.

Foods to Fight Free Radicals

Foods that are rich in antioxidants are scavengers of free radicals.

Chlorella is an alga containing high levels of chlorophyll (the green substance in plants). It is one of the purest and most potent foods on earth. Chlorella is a powerful detoxification agent against heavy metals and chemicals in your body. It not only breaks down persistent hydrocarbon and metallic toxins, such as mercury, cadmium, lead, DDT, and PCE, that you may have ingested in your body, but also strengthens your immune system.
Eat several raw garlic cloves a day to fight free radicals. Overcome the odor by chewing some fresh parsley.

A standard dosage of garlic is 900 mg daily of a garlic extract standardized to contain 1.3 percent alliin, the potent ingredient in garlic.

Eat anti-aging foods high in vitamin C and bioflavonoids, such as apricots, berries, black currants, cherries, grapes, grapefruit, lemons, and plums, to prevent broken blood vessels and new blood vessel growth in the eye.

Vitamin C does not stay in your body for long, so you need to replenish it constantly in order to reap its benefits.

Load up on carrots for vitamin A. Carrots contain a carotenoid (a pigment in plants and animals that provides red and yellow color) called beta-carotene. Your body converts beta-carotene into vitamin A, which is a potent anti-oxidant for eye health and healthy vision. Eat carrots, and you will have eyes of an eagle.

Protect the interior of your eyes from the sun with lutein (the primary carotenoid located in the center of the retina, called the macula) and zeaxanthin through supplements, or foods rich in lutein and zeaxanthin such as collard greens, Brussels sprouts, kale, green peas, pumpkin seeds, corn, green pepper, and spinach.

Cigarette smoking reduces the eye’s production of lutein and zeaxanthin, which are pigments of the retina for filtering out harmful blue rays that thicken the macular pigment.

One cup of raw spinach contains about 18 mg. of lutein, one cup of cooked broccoli contains about 3 mg., and one cup of sliced green pepper around 1 mg. They are all anti-aging foods for vision health.

According to The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), 5 servings of spinach per week may reduce macular degeneration by more than 50 percent.

Take magnesium to aid blood flow to the eye for oxygen and nutrients.

Consume cold-water fish and fish oils for omega-3 essential oils, as well as vitamins A and D, which aid in the production of protective pigments in the eye. Eating tuna may significantly reduce your dry eye symptoms.

Take zinc to help release vitamin A from your liver to help healthy vision.

Improve your night vision with bilberries, a cousin to blueberries, grown in the forest meadows of Europe, western Asia, and the northern Rocky Mountains. Bilberry is an herbal remedy that may have a very positive impact on night vision by fortifying blood vessel walls, thereby improving blood flow to the blood vessels in your eyes. Bilberry may help prevent macular degeneration and cataracts. Its original use traces back to World War II when British pilots found that eating jam made from bilberries helped them improve their night vision.

Eat more protein (plant protein from beans) to reduce the development of cataracts, which make your eye’s natural lens cloudy, according to a French scientific study.

Supplement your diet with vitamin E from nuts to improve your healthy vision.

Slow Down Your Vision Deterioration

As we age, our vision deteriorates, and becomes blurry. This is a fact! However, we can still delay or slow down the deterioration process. 

First of all, why does the human eye become blurry due to aging? 

There are many factors. But let us look at one major factor: lack of use of the peripheral vision (which is our side vision). 

In normal vision, we use the macula in the human eye, which is responsible for central and detailed vision, and we also use our peripheral vision to see what is on the right and on the left side. In other words, normal vision is made up the central and the peripheral vision. As we continue to age, we tend to stare (just like staring at our cell phone or computer screen) that we unconsciously neglect our use of the side vision. Use it or lose it. Does it make sense? Our side vision slowly and gradually deteriorates over the years without our knowing it. Using less side vision, we tend to rely more on the macula; as a result, we also unconsciously overuse the macula. This has led to blurry vision. The more we use the macula, the less we use the peripheral vision. The result is that we lose both the macula and the peripheral vision. It is just that simple.

Let me use a simple illustration. Say, you are the Chief Chef, and you have two assistants to help you in the kitchen. But all along you have been doing almost everything yourself without relying on your assistants. Ultimately, you have overworked yourself, and your assistants, accordingly, have become lazy. This scenario is pretty much the same as our use of the macula and peripheral vision.

If you see an ophthalmologist, probably he or she would tell you to have another pair of glasses, and your problem will not be fixed.

How can we improve our peripheral vision to overcome blurry vision? The answer is simple: use your peripheral vision more, so as to use your central vision (macula) less.

Stretch out your hands sideways, and move or wave your fingers. Your eyes are still looking forward in front of you, but you are now aware of the motion of your fingers on both sides. It is this awareness that stimulates your peripheral vision. Practice this as often as possible. Even when you are walking, you can move your hands sideways and make your eyes aware of the motion of your hands on each side.

Of course, you may find this tedious and tiring to move your hands sideways to stimulate your peripheral vision. There is, however, another way to do this.

Go to a Dollar shop and get light-powered sunflowers or toys (you can also get them online; they cost just a few dollars). If you are working on your computer, put them on the two sides of your computer screen—as far apart as possible--so that while your eyes are focusing on the computer screen, the movement of the sunflowers (they are powered by natural or artificial light) are within your side vision, and will unconsciously but continuously stimulate your peripheral vision. In other words, you will "notice" something "flickering" on your sides to stimulate your side vision even though your eyes are still looking at the center of the computer screen.

Believe me, this is an inexpensive and unconventional way to protect your side vision from deteriorating.

Overcoming Eyestrain

Eyestrain is one of the underlying causes of many vision disorders. The opposite of eyestrain is eye relaxation, which essentially comes from the mind.

Develop your mental awareness to change your bad vision habits that cause eyestrain.

Shifting: Train your mind to edge or trace the outline of any visual object with your eyes. Form this good vision habit to avoid “staring” or “eye fixation.”

Eye balancing: Wear an eye-patch (obtainable at a pharmacy or local drug store) over your stronger eye in order to strengthen your weaker eye.

Periphery: Use a two-eyed patch to cover your eyes to enhance your peripheral vision. Make a two-eyed patch out of a strip of stiff cardboard (3” x 1”), with a small part cut off in the middle to accommodate your nose.

Sunglasses: Avoid wearing sunglasses to avoid “squinting.”
Mind Relaxation
The eye conditions are constantly changing such that they can be adversely affected by any emotional or mental stress, resulting in eyestrain that can cause vision blur. By the same token, you can significantly improve your vision if you relax your eyes completely through relaxation.

Using a Relaxed Mind to Relax the Body, and hence the Eye

It is almost impossible to relax just your eyes, while the rest of your body remains tense and stressed. Total relaxation begins with the mind first, and then the rest of the body, including the eyes. Use your mind to relax your body, and then your eyes -- the best way to achieve mental relaxation.

Vision Diaorders

Common vision disorders include: cataract, glaucoma, and macular degeneration.

Eye disorders, like any disease, often start at the cellular level in which oxidation occurs. Cells make up your organs. When cells die, your organs fail and heath deteriorates, and you age and die. The cell of an organ can be destroyed during the process of oxidation in which unpaired electrons, known as free radicals, are produced. Free radicals occur naturally as byproducts of oxidation, such as during respiration and other chemical processes; for example, during breathing, while life-giving oxygen is produced, harmful carbon dioxide is also released.

Likewise, eye disorders are related to free radicals and oxidation. According to research studies, oxidation is involved in the development of most eye disorders, including cataracts, retinal disease, and glaucoma.  

According to Western medicine, there is no cure, and no reversal of the conditions connected with the symptoms. However, we must also look at the underlying causes of glaucoma, and look at the disorder with a different perspective and with a holistic approach to the treatment.

Below is taken from: Health and Wisdom Tips:

“Glaucoma is an eye condition due to increased eye pressure that may lead to blindness. In conventional medicine, most eye doctors would recommend surgeries and / or eye drops to relieve high ocular pressure in the eye.

However, there is one problem: surgeries and eye drops would also create a chronic condition, ironically enough, leading to ultimate blindness. The use of eye drops may have adverse long-term effects, one of which is the falling off of pieces of iris, causing blockage, and thereby instrumental in increasing eye pressure over the long haul, instead of reducing the eye pressure.

Dr. Leslie Salov, M.D., O.D. Ph.D., in his book Secrets for Better Vision, states that most glaucoma patients are highly intelligent professionals who lead very stressful, busy lives. This finding led Dr. Salov to believe that to improve vision or eye health, you need to improve the health of your entire person simultaneously because your body is a set of interlocking systems that affect one another. Given that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, your eyes are only a small part of your whole person. Accordingly, to heal the eyes, you must heal the body first. It is just that simple!

To have healthy vision, even as you age, you must employ not only the sciences of physiology, biology, and chemistry, but also the healing powers of philosophy and even spirituality. This is no exception when it comes to treating glaucoma. In other words, to treat glaucoma, you need to examine not just your eyes, but also every aspect of your life, including your emotional and spiritual health. Get a holistic approach to healing glaucoma.

The methods of glaucoma treatment recommended by Dr. Salov also include the following:
Visualization is the use of guided imagery to direct blood, oxygen, and leukocytes (immunity cells) to the eye through a mental image of a healthy eye. Essentially, your conscious mind controls the involuntary processes that occur automatically inside your body. Specifically, visualization relaxes the muscles in the walls of your canal of Schlemm (circular channel in the eye that collects watery substance between the lens and the cornea). By relaxing these muscles, extra fluid can be excreted to relieve the glaucoma pressure. Without using eye drops with chemicals, visualization can naturally relax eye muscles so that your pupils become small enough to open up the canal of Schlemm to excrete the fluid for eye pressure relief.

However, it must be pointed out that visualization works only when you use it with dedication and consistency. In other words, you have to practice visualization daily and diligently.

Meditation is the art of thinking of nothing to remove everyday stresses and worries. When you are under stress, you body produces chemical changes within your body, which decrease blood flow and oxygen level to your eye. Practice meditation to de-stress yourself.  (Also read my article: Seeing with the Eyes of a Fish.)

The bottom line: eye pressure can be relieved by eye relaxation; it is important to relax your eye muscles, just like you would relax the muscles of different parts of your body.
Remember, vision has to do with the mind too, and not just the eyes. Without mind relaxation, the eyes are stressed and unrelaxed, and thus raising the eye pressure, which is the underlying cause of glaucoma. Does it make sense?

Internal Life Energy for Vision Health

Getting old is no fun: your vision declines, among other things! But it doesn’t have to be like that.
Your vision health is holistic health: that is, it is related to your overall health, in particular, your kidneys and your spine. According to Chinese medicine, the kidneys are considered the longevity organs of the body. An erect spine contributes to better breathing, and, more importantly, the free flow of “qi” which is internal life energy flowing through the meridians of your body. This internal life energy carries oxygen and nutrients to your eyes, as well as your other body organs. If you want to be vibrant with good vision, focus on your kidneys and your lower back.
As you continue to age, you may not want to do too many rigorous exercises. The following basic “qi gong” exercise helps both your kidneys and your lower back, and therefore is beneficial to your vision health:

(1) As you get up in the morning, stand with your feet close together.
(2) Relax your head and shoulders by gently rotating your head upward, downward, right and left in a circular motion, while opening your eyes. Do not “fix” your eyes on anything; just let them “notice” the surrounding.
(3) Stretch your hands upward as far as you can go, and then forward. You will feel the stretch in your lower back.
(4) Now, bend forward until your hands touch the floor, or as far as you can go. Continue to look upward to keep your back straight. Remain in this position for as long as possible.
(5) Then, slowly uncurl your body.
(6) Repeat the above.

This exercise is easy to perform, and it benefits the whole body, especially the eye. Perform this exercise as you get up in the morning, and before you go to bed.
 For more information, go to my web page: Vision Health.

Bad Vision Habits

Healthy vision is also a matter of the mind, and not just the eye.
Vision self-healing, like any other healing, begins with the mind first, and not the body or the eye for that matter.
The intention to heal comes from within, specifically, the mind. With intention, comes concentration and then focus to empower yourself with the knowledge to heal your eyes of any vision problem you may have. The manifestation of the mind is reflected throughout the healing process, irrespective of the eye or any other body organ.
Healing begins with the mind, and mind healing is always mind over matter.

Changing for the Better

The mind can either heal or harm. Your mind can help you improve your vision because vision healing is all in the mind, but it can also increase your subconscious internal resistance to following new patterns requisite for self-healing.
All vision begins with thoughts. Seeing is a matter of the mind. To see better, you need to change not only the way you “think” about seeing but also the way you “go about” seeing. It is all in the mind—your thinking mind!
Changing your vision habits—most of which may be incorrect or even damaging to your vision health—is not an easy task. Once these visual patterns are deeply ingrained in your mind, they have become your long-term memories, and to change them or to eradicate them becomes a new challenge. But you can and you must overcome that challenge through your mind power.
Harness your mind power to do two things for you:
To restore your memories of clear, sharp visual images
To visualize familiar images of clear vision, such as imagining total darkness in order to totally relax your optic nerve (total relaxation occurring only in total darkness) connected to your brain.
Memory and imagination are powerful tools for you to improve your vision, because your mind has a deep connection with your eyes. Effectively using your mind can successfully stimulate clearer and better vision. It is always mind over matter.

Changing vision habits

How do you change your bad vision habits? There is a saying: “It is difficult to teach an old dog new tricks.” The conscious mind is often reluctant and resistant to any change. Believe it or not, most of us are stubborn creatures—more like an old dog—who do not want to get out of own comfort zones. The only way to overcome this obstacle is through changing the subconscious mind.
Basically, your mind is made up of your conscious mind and your subconscious mind. Your conscious mind makes decisions and you act accordingly, but it is your subconscious mind that directs your conscious mind. That is to say, in your conscious mind, you are fully aware of your actions and their respective consequences; in your subconscious mind, where you store your emotions and memories, you only respond spontaneously to repetitions of words and images in the form of affirmations and visualization. In other words, if you keep on repeating positive self-suggestions or visualizing positive images in your mind’s eye, you can effectively change the thoughts in your conscious mind through your subconscious mind.
To learn more about how to change some of your bad vision habits, read my book: Vision Self-Healing Self-Help.
