Eyes on the Prize

Strengthen Your Vision

Your sense of sight is your window to the world. Through your eyes you experience almost half the information your brain needs to understand your environment. Age and eye strain can create tension and weaken your vision. We often take our eyes for granted, but they need daily care (just like your teeth) to keep on providing you with service for years to come.

Here are some great yogic tips to give your eyes a boost: For a simple eye strain remedy, take an hourly computer break and splash your eyes with some cold water. Nutritionally, enjoy a handful of blanched almonds to take advantage of the Vitamin E that nutritionists believe is important for eye health. Or try this juice combo Yogi Bhajan gave for the eyes: Mix 6 oz. carrot juice with 6 oz. celery juice, 2 oz. endive juice and 2 oz. parsley juice. Enjoy this drink along with this yoga set for strengthening your inner and outer vision.

Thanks to the universe and how timely for me. I have been diagnosed as having a cataract, and have been pursuing research on holistic and natural remedies, hoping that together with specific eye exercises and holistic approaches, I can at least halt the
progress. Having a cataract operation is not feeling right at this moment. Great reading. Keep up the informative articles and many thanks, in gratitude and abundance.
