Your eyes are too important to not take care of them. Unfortunately your eyes are susceptible to adverse light (e.g. blue light), poor nutrition, lack of certain vitamins and minerals, poor oxygenation and lack of good circulation.
Preventing diabetes which compromises eye circulation is critical to overall eye health. Preventing diabetes (another topic) is vital for brain and eye health.
Eye Health Activities:
Get regular natural light exposure which is good for your eyes.
Minimize blue light exposure from TV’s, computers, cell phone screens and tablets. I suggest using blue light filtering glasses. The ones I use are Uvex by Honeywell. Find them on Amazon. The most important time to avoid blue light is the last 2 hours before bedtime. This will help get better sleep.
Eye Health Foods:
Dark green leafy vegetables, orange peppers, organic eggs (esp the yolks), wild Alaskan Salmon, sardines and anchovies, black currants, bilberries and any foods with high antioxidant levels.
Minimize or avoid sugar (esp fructose), grains and anything that raises your insulin (foods with high glycemic index).
Eye Health vitamins and nutrients:
Lutein, zeaxanthin, omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin D, C, E, Zinc, and any high level antioxidants.
Eye Health Technology:
I have come across (I use it for better circulation to my eyes) an amazing technology called Bemer. Bemer was developed in Europe and dramatically improves circulation to all cells by dilating the capillaries bringing blood to those cells. This is especially good for the eyes by accelerating nutrient uptake by the eyes, increasing oxygenation of the eyes and expediting toxin removal from the eye cells. Bemer is not only critical for eye health but for the muscles of the eyes which are important for focusing the eyes.
Bemer is also very effective in treating or prevent macular degeneration and cataracts.
I like Bemer because it also improves the effectiveness of all nutrients and therapies to which you expose your body.
The eyes are the great beneficiary of better nutrition, eye health activities and the use of Bemer.
