Wellness Wisdom and Vision Health

Health is one of the greatest assets of your being, and your eyes are of the most important organs in your body. For without vision, you see nothing, and your perceptions of the world and your experiences will be totally different. The importance of vision health cannot be overstressed.

Many people don’t pay much attention to their vision health as long as they can see. But vision health, like the health of any organ, may deteriorate over the years; worse, the deterioration will be gradual and subtle, but permanent and devastating long term.

The overall health of an individual is often ignored, just as Dr. Deepak Chopra, M.D. bestselling author, and founder of the Chopra enter for Wellbeing, once said: “If you don’t take care of your health today, you will be forced to take care of your illness tomorrow.”

To take care of your overall health and wellbeing, you need wisdom, and not just common sense. The explanation is that health and wellness have to be holistic: that is, it includes, the body, the mind, and the soul. For example, in vision health, it is not just relaxing your eyes when you work for too long on your computer; your mind can stress you, and the toxic desires of the body can adversely affect the mind and the souls as well. Wellness wisdom is about the body, the mind, and the soul—they all play a pivotal role in your overall wellness, which ultimately affect your vision health as well.

Look beyond what your eyes can see, and that is wisdom in living.

Wellness Wisdom 2014 Newsletter” is a newsletter on wellness of the body, the mind, and the soul. This “Wellness Wisdom 2014 Newsletter” will be regularly updated with news, comments on news, and tips regarding health and wellness of the body, the mind, and the soul. In addition, if you subscribe to the newsletter, you will also be sent an email (on the 1st and 15th of each month) with information to boost your health. Remember, health is often not valued until it has deteriorated.

Use Diet to See Better

Vision problems occur as you continue to age. If you already have them, they may deteriorate further as you advance in years. Many seniors have vision problems that may compromise their quality of life. Your Golden Years and Santa Claus shows you how to cope with vision problems and other health-related problems in your golden years.

You can significantly enhance vision health through diet.

Green Tea contains polyphenols that protects the blood vessels that supplies nutrients to your eyes, as well as their surrounding tissues.

Fennel alleviates eye problems, such as cataracts. You have to consume this raw or make it into a tea to bathe your eyes in it.

Passion Flower relaxes the small blood vessels in your eyes thereby instrumental in reducing the stress in the eye muscles.

Ginkgo Biloba increase the flow of nutrients and blood to your retina. Beta Carotene is an antioxidant found in dark green and orange-yellow fruits and vegetables; your body can convert it to Vitamin A, which is essential for the proper functioning of your eyes.

Endive is a green vegetable with a bitter flavor and curly leaves that are eaten raw. Drink endive juice to help your nearsightedness.

Garlic protects the capability and clarity of the crystalline lens. Always eat raw garlic to reap its benefits.

Beets help with cleansing the blood that supplies oxygen and nutrients to your eyes. In addition, beets prevent eye fatigue. You can either juice beets and eat them raw in a salad.

Spinach is loaded with antioxidants that prevent dystrophy of your retinas.

Of course, the eyes, like the rest of your body, require regular exercise to improve its eye muscle functioning. Use it or lose; that also is applicable to your eyes. Go to my website: Vision Self-Healing to get more information on eye exercise to maintain your vision health. Also, read my book Your Golden Years and Santa Claus to find out how to take care of your vision in your golden years so that your vision is as sharp as those of Santa Claus.
