Part VI, Restore and Maintain Good Vision and Eye Health Naturally
by Tony Isaacs
(NaturalNews) In the previous installments of this series we looked at how healthy diet, habits, eye exercises, foods, vitamins, minerals, other compounds and herbs could help maintain healthy eyes and restore lost vision. In this final segment we will look at some of the other remedies used for eye problems, especially remedies for difficult eye cataracts.
Remedies for the Eyes
*Bentonite clay poultices have been used successfully by many people with eye problems. Bentonite clay pulls out toxins that cause any different eye issues and is especially good for infections and eye strain. It has even been reported to help restore vision in the instance of cataracts
*Mix half a teaspoon of licorice root powder with half a teaspoon of honey and one fourth teaspoon of clarified butter. Take the mixture twice daily with a cup of milk on an empty stomach.
*Mix one-half to one liter of a combination of carrot, celery, parsley, and chicory juice to help nourish the optic nerve and muscular system. Amazing results have been reported using this formula.
*Use fennel eaten raw, made into tea or used as an eyewash to help with vision problems, including cataracts.
*Endive juice is considered to be a very effective remedy for myopia. It can also be mixed with other beneficial juices such as carrot, parsley, and celery.
*Cayenne is an anti-inflammatory for the mucus membranes and it increases blood flow to the eye. Use only very small amounts, well diluted with water in eye drop form.
*Use Coleus dropped directly into the eye to increase blood flow to the eye and decrease intraocular pressure.
*Jaborandi is an herb that grows in the rainforest. It's been used for well over 100 years in patients with glaucoma and it contains pilocarpine, an alkaloid compound which causes constriction of the pupils and reduces pressure within the eye.
*Strange as it may seem, many report improved vision from applying mustard oil to the soles of both feet daily and at night.
Remedies Especially for Cataracts
*The use of carrots is considered beneficial in the treatment of cataract. Take plenty of raw carrots daily or else drink two glasses of fresh carrot juice, one each in the morning and evening.
*Eat two or three cloves of raw garlic daily to clean the crystalline lens of the eye. The cloves should be chewed slowly.
*Extract the juice of pumpkin flowers and apply externally on the eyelids twice daily to prevent further clouding of the crystalline lens.
*Mix an equal quantity of aniseed and coriander powder together with one teaspoon of brown sugar, and take the mixture in doses of 12 grams in the morning and evening.
*Place a few drops of raw organic honey in the eyes twice or more each day. This is an ancient Egyptian remedy which is reported to have benefited many people with cataracts.
*Finely grind seven kernels of raw almonds together with half a gram of black pepper and place in a half cup of water. Sweeten with raw honey and drink the mixture to help the eyes regain vigor and clarity.
*Twice daily, close your eyes and bathe them with hot (but not scalding) water containing Epsom salts. In addition, take an Epsom salts bath at least twice a week. Remain in the bath from twenty-five to thirty-five minutes till you perspire freely. After the bath, cool off gradually.
When it comes to eye remedies, the best results may well come from combining one or more of the suggested remedies.
Two final ingredients essential to improving vision and maintaining eye health are patience and perseverance.
