I have recently heard of the Bates method for eyesight. I am near sighted and would like to try this. My prescription is -4.5 each eye. Would like to hear from people who have had success with this method.
I have heard of someone called Greg March form Dr Mercola's website who has a cd series called:
'Reclaim Your Eyesight Naturally'. Has anyone tried this?
I am 38 years old and have struggled with dry eyes for 6 years. Recently my eyes have gotten worse. The eye dr says my oil glands are blocked. I am currently using Dr Christopher's eye wash and supplements 3 times per day. I also use a heated mask several times per day. I stay mostly on a paleo diet, have quit taking antihistamines, and use a lot of coconut oil.
My life has a lot of stress.
I have tried castor oil, but it seemed to make my eyes worse.
Any suggestions you have are appreciated.
the eyes don't have oil glands.
Usually dry eyes are due to food allergies.
Buy the book "The Pulse Test" from amazon to find out how your pulse rate reveals whether or not you are having an allergic reaction to a food or drink.
It also reveals food sensitivities which are minor allergies that your doctor can't detect.
Another cause can be adrenal exhaustion which can be caused by food allergies or just too much activity in your life. Rest is essential to balance. Reduce your allergic exposure (food and airborne) and take the herb Maca (1 tablespoon twice a day).
there are oil glands within the visual structure and it is these that your dr will be referring to- google meibomian glands: they line your eyelids. Good functioning of these are crucial to a decent tear film and eye health. sorry you're having such problems and no advice I'm afraid - but thought it might help to correct the misunderstanding in a previous post.
I recently discovered the solution to my chronic dry eye while waiting at Rite-Aid pharmacy. I read an article in their monthly magazine about Chronic Dry Eye. It said to take Omega-3 daily to relieve the problem. I bought some before leaving the store. I take it every day now. I got relief within the first week. It was great. I don't like fish so I use the one Rite-Aid sells that doesn't contain fish oil and the capsules are smaller so it is easier to take. I recommend anyone struggling with Chronic Dry Eye to start taking Omega-3.
I too have suffered from Chronic Dry eye syndrome for several years. I have made a complete recovery from it. I have written a free book about it called "Dry Eyes No More", a free .PDF book. A man by the name of Anthony DeSimone has apparantly read my book and written his own based on some of what I have written before.
Ok. The jist of the book "Dry Eyes No More" is to do with three major issues. If you address those issues, you will see significant relief in 2 weeks! Those three issues are as follows: -
1. The type of water that you drink.
2. The quantity of water that you drink.
3. The content of the water that you drink.
What your many other bodily problems you are having are telling you is that your body is too "acidic"! This is another problem which also has to be addressed. All remedies can be done cheaply:
1. Only alkaline water should be drunk. See YouTube on the benefits of alkaline water. You should be startled and amazed with renewed hope of a quick recovery.
2. You are not drinking enough "pure" water! Drink 16oz of alkaline water a day. Do it slowly, including before going to bed.
3. Your alkaline water should be free of additives and chlorine. Chlorine is a menace to maintaining "wet" eyes.
Avoid Florine where possible!
Change your diet to as follows: -
Eat only a "raw" diet during the day and anything you want in the evening. - Exceptions: No sugar, alchohol, nicotine and caffeine except on the weekends. Keep reducing your consumption of these "exceptions" until they are rare.
*Raw diet: Salads, fruits, vegetables. Pure. No dressings. Plenty of drinking water.
You should see an astonishing recovery within two weeks. The lessons learned from your recovery should keep you on this program indefinitely!
a.) The alkaline drinking water you drink should be used in your cooking water also. (This is very important)!
b.) Never mix waters! If your drink alkaline water, drink and use only alkaline water: - If at a restaurant, only drink your bottled alkaline water. If at friends, do the same too.
c.) Always carry your alkaline water around with you every where you go.
David Barker: (The original) Dry Eyes No More. (I will make it available to the public again).
I am feeling a lot better since I started taking iodine. My eyes are not 100% cured, but they are much more comfortable.
I will look into the alkaline water. Thanks!
I have fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, low adrenal and some thyroid issues, sinusitis, leaky gut, allergies, insomnia, and I take dhea to help my brain function. All these issues are mostly under control through paleo diet, gentle exercise, brain exercises to turn off my "fight or flight" reflex, supplements, massage, chiropractic, prayer, journaling, and forgiveness.
My chiropractic neurologist has helped me a lot. He just didn't know what to do about my dry eyes.
Hi, I have a little problem with my stool. There are white/grey stuffs, (similiar to dust) on it. (was asking myself why there is dust in my body?) I can't figure out what is my problem. I feel very tired everyday, I have no strenght, and low bloody pressure. I feel better after eating foods with sugar. I also have dry skin under my beard and under my hair.
Hope you can help me, sorry for my English. Thanks!
Need Help -Increasing Eye Floaters and Chronic Sinus problems of Ear/Nose and throat.
About 10 yrs ago I had severe tinnitus for 3 months, and felt fluid in my ears. The ENT found nothing. Few yrs after that, I had maddening itchy Nose, Ears, Eyes and throat. I thought It was just allergies and was given a sinus spray. It had temporary relief but I would get fever, chills after using the medicine.
Last yr I noticed that my ears stopped producing wax and nothing came out of my nose ever. I also stopped getting colds. I also have squishy feeling and noise when I turn my head. In the ear where I felt fluid 10 yrs ago now gets occasional clicking sounds, especially after taking supplements or meds.
I've been on parasite cleanse since last year. After each series of meds I noticed a drastic increase in eye floaters. I am beginning to worry about my vision if I cannot get rid of these floaters. Please help.
I have fluid in my ears and bad sinus problems also. Im thinking the worms are clogging the flow of fluids including spinal fluid. I also had tinutitis when trying to clear out my sinuses. The parasites are to blame. If you are continually flushing out your sinuses you cld be making things worse. After i stopped daily flushing of my sinuses the tinutitus slowly went away. The worms cld have possibly chewed some holes and pahways in your sinuses causing fluid leakage.
When I was a teenager, my mom took me to a dentist who said I had about 5 cavities and filled my teeth with silver. As far as I could tell I only had one teeth hurting and felt that perhaps he filled other teeth unnecessarily. I dont know. Over the yrs I would have the same recurring dream of my teeth shattering and crumbling in my mouth and me spitting them all out.
Anyway another dentist removed the mercury and refilled them with that white stuff. I only have 1 mercury filling in my mouth now. I recently removed a problematic wisdom teeth.
The other day I felt something move in my jaw near my ears which surprised me. I have started taking Iodine recently and now I feel movement in my ears as if something is relocating..
While reading reviews on Goji berries on Amazon. com, I came across one that said 1/4 cup of berries in warm water to hydrate. after eating the berries drink the soaking water. I was skeptical, but I did it, and it did help 95 %.
Doing a search on Goji berries shows that they are good for eye health. You might try them.
They are said to be very anti ageing and help the kidneys and liver and the eyes as you mention. Incidentally, Chinese traditional medicine believe that the liver and the eye function are closely related.
I love them and cannot eat enough. I had 5Kg delivered yesterday and have already eaten almost 0.5Kg in less than 24 hours.
The only problem is all the carbs in them. I do intend trying to ferment them as soon as I get a new liquidizer to allow the bacteria easier access to the berries carbs. If the bacteria would consume the carbs leaving the beneficial properties then that would suit me. One problem is that some of the beneficial elements of Goji (Gou Qi Zi) berries are polysaccharides which could get destroyed by bacteria. I will have to try it out and find out whether it works.
When I developed eye floaters after cataract surgery it was so disheartening, figuring i would have to have another surgery to try and get rid of these floaters. I searched the internet for countless hours looking for solutions. I found a natural treatment that worked for me after what seemed like months of looking.
Im happy to say that my floaters are up to 90% gone as of writing this and i started the program only 1 month ago. Just letting people know try the natural methods first before considering costly surgery.
THE EYE PROFESSION THINKS AN EYEDROP THAT COULD CURE CATARACT
WOULD BE “TOO MUNDANE”, “TOO BORING”, AND “NOT WORTHY OF THEIR INVOLVEMENT”.
Question and Answer Session with Eye Doctor
Yesterday, I again visited my eye doctor to re-evaluate my cataracts.
Previously, I had shown her the patent specification on the cyclic amide which was claimed to reverse human senile cataract in just one week. She said she had read it, and was quite impressed. I had also previously mentioned N-acetylcysteine amide (NACA), which had reversed severe cataracts in an animal model in one month.
The following is a brief record of the discussion we had.
Q: Doctor, in view of the fact that there are at least 2 potential cataract reversal eyedrop agents discovered in the last 30 years, which were found to be safe and effective based on animal trials, one of which was also tested on human cataracts already, why on earth has the eye profession done nothing to start clinical trials of these agents? Why is the world population still being denied a simpler, safer solution?
A: I also want to have an eyedrop which I could give my patients, but since there isn’t one, my hands are tied. I am forced to send them to surgery, although I really don’t want to. When you ask patients here and there who have had the surgery - they have a wide range of complaints such as glare from lights, shedding tears, or foreign object sensation. But that’s only to be expected - after all, a plastic IOL is not something natural, it’s a foreign object as far as the eye is concerned.
Why is there no eyedrop? My profession thinks that a simple eyedrop which could cure cataract would be far too mundane, too boring, to be worthy of their involvement. They just wouldn’t be satisfied unless they did the surgery.
Q: Who wouldn’t be satisfied? The doctors, or the patients?
A: The doctors.
Q: I see. Thankyou Doctor, for being so frank.
I immediately telephoned the helpline of my local health authority, and the following exchange ensued:
Q: I just saw my eye doctor, and she said that despite the existence of eyedrops that could potentially cure cataract, the eye profession thinks a simple eyedrop would be too mundane and too boring, and that they wouldn’t be satisfied unless they did surgery. What do you think about that?
A: Oh, that’s just because they’re making lots of money from the surgery, isn’t it? There’s nothing we can do about that, we have no control over it. We have no authority to tell them what to do. We recommend you approach a pharmaceutical company to see if they would be interested in making and testing eyedrops.
Q: But pharmaceutical companies won’t listen to suggestions from patients, only from ophthalmologists.
A: That’s true. Well, then, there’s nothing more we can do. Goodbye.
I've heard that castor oil put in the eyes before bed can cure cataracts over a few months.
Although I do not have them, I tried it.
It makes your vision blurry for a few hours, so that is why it is best only to do it before going to sleep for a while.
"Modern Medicine" is a racket of thieves and profiteers, working over those who would give anything to be well again.
Yes, it is said that castor oil over several months can clear up cataracts. But I found several references stating that 100% castor oil causes apoptosis of corneal cells. I wonder whether a 5% solution of castor oil, for example, would not be toxic to the cornea, and yet still clear up the cataracts?
To know that, we would have to do tests on corneal cell lines.
If it checked out OK at 5%, then we would have to establish that it was still effective even at 5%. But yes, we need to establish lack of toxicity and cataract reversal effect in vivo at several different concentrations of castor oil in a carrier - 1%, 5% and 10%, for example. In fact, we need to determine the optimum concentration of castor oil here to do what we want, and do it safely.
I had laser done on my eyes a year ago next week and it has come back...not to the same extent as before...I had myopia 6 or so in each eye...I´ve made an appointment to go back to the doc that operated me next week so I´ll see what strength I have ...I reckon 1 -2... which Thank God isn´t a bad yet but bad enough...I don´t want to re-operate....risks and also I´m interested in the Bates metod...in fact years ago I had a book on it that my mother found second hand in a charity jumble sale but as I was still in my teens and though that I had too much myopia to go without glasses I read the book but never tried the method...this time I will...Any advice...what book should I buy....Bates method on line or h. Benjamin email@example.com
look for a web site called "imagination blindess" i don't have the address now, but its all about the bates method. it even have free books you can download. there is also a bates yahoo group that is very active. these are great resources.
Good luck with your vision training! I know that there are seminars and books out there. Schnider Myer cured himself from near blindness, and an australian woman, Janet Goodrich wrote a book called Natural Vision Improvement that seems fun to read. Like you, I've never actually worked through a program. Both of these authors have a center. Janet recently died of cancer but her trainers are still out there.
I can suggest you a website that gathers most vision improvement products on the market. The website has review articles. It even contains a "scam" section.
Check it out here: http://eyeexercisesforcomputerusers.com
I am very much shortsighted ( about -9 on both eyes). I use contact lenses since ten years ago, but I feel I just cannot hold on this way no more. I am breastfeeding, and my sight got even worse. I am considering going under laser surgery because I am a tailor and need to have a good sight to work good . I cannot live a normal life without glasses, so unfortunately I cannot try Bates method that would mean stop wearing glasses and working etc. ( I cannot afford to give myself a long period without working).
I need some advice because I can feel mu eyes getting worse day after day.
You don't have to get rid of your glasses with bates. You can get a slightly reduced prescription that will allow you to see 20/30 or 20/40 which is the legal limit for driving. Then as you practice bates relaxation exercises your eyes will get a little better and then you can reduce the prescription again.
If your vision is getting worse and worse then you are not a good candidate for laser surgery in the first place. You have to have "stable poor" vision before you can get laser surgery.
Best thing is to learn bates method to take back your vision. It can take a while but it's FAR better than surgery.
yes but as I said before I cannot afford a long recovery period ( I've read in a post below that in 1 year I could expect a 0.25/0.50 eyesight gain) without working, and I suppose that 20/30 would not allow me to sew.
I also have a little baby and have to stay very aware of things around her since she starts crawling right now.
I feel helpless about this matter...as if I was slowly going blind without any chance to stop the process.
My worry for you is that you say your vision is getting worse and worse. If it keeps going this way you are going to be a prime candidate for retinal detachment.
20/30 vision would totally allow you to sew and probably even 20/40. Although I am not a taylor so I don't know how far you have to see. I had 20/40 prescription given to me when I first started and I could drive fine at night which for me is the hardest thing to do.
what would happen if I use a lower prescription as you suggest, and do not exercise enough meanwhile? I worry about 20/30 tiring my eyes a lot, could that tiredness result in another worsening if I do not exercise constantly? the doc always told me that staring to see would damage my eyes.
you say that I can improve my vision while using glasses, but I checked for info and found out that according to bates, use of lenses even with lower prescriptions, cannot lead to any results from the method.
What about this?
doyou have a personal experience to share?
thanx for yr precious help and support.

I don't exercise enough myself. But I constantly practice relaxation techniques to see more clearly. I never strain to see clearly. It's difficult to explain and I feel Bates is a great place to start. And you really don't have to 'exercise' constantly. You should learn proper vision habits and practice those constantly. The exercises can take 10-20 minutes a day or so. While the school semester is going I don't have much time between work and the volunteer hours I put in helping youth. But after school is out I have plenty of free time so I can sympathize with your time predicament. I think learning to relax your eyes is a best thing you can do. And getting a lower prescription while working at your job is probably not going to strain your vision. You can always get a second 20/20 pair for driving although 20/30 is legal.

Yes, I have a hard time giving up glasses completely. I started at -4.50 with astigmatism and went down to -3.75 with the astigmatism removed. And I should be at -3.50 but my crummy optometrist said "oh, you have 20/15 vision with your prescription now, that's great!" and wouldn't lower it. The way I did it was mainly through getting "computer glasses" since I only need to see a couple feet in front of me to see the computer where I am all day long. Then as my vision improved I would push the computer monitor away and as soon as it was as far away as possible I would lower my prescription again and bring the monitor in close again and do it all over.
When practicing bates exercises you must remove the glasses. When I remove the glasses and practice I definitely get more benefit than when I leave my glasses on and do it. There is definitely a psychological attachment that has developed between glasses and clear vision that I am slowly breaking.
I'd HIGHLY suggest getting a book or two on the subject because it's so much more than I can go into in a forum post. Also join the many vision groups on the groups.yahoo.com site. there is batesmethod, focus_on_vision_training, i-see, 2see, vision_therapy, visionsenz, visionforlife. It's alot to read and there are some conflicting views but try and see what works for you. It takes some experimenting but the first time you see a small breakthrough is awesome! You are now starting to fly against the grain of current mainstream optometric practice. Congratulations. :)
Oh, another great tool is the "magic eyes" 3-d books. They are a fun tool to practice good vision habits. http://www.vision3d.com/ There are not as many books on this out there as there used to be but you can find used ones out there on amazon.com. I'm going to get off the computer now and have fun with these books!
you're being really helpful . I 've just ordered a couple of books ( Bates's "perfect sight without glasses" and another book by MacCracken) . I am now trying to give up contact lenses and wearing them just a few hours a day ( I used to wear them about 18 h a day).
I will soon get a new prescription. Do you think that I must get glasses or can I try with lower prescription contact lenses?
I used to use my contacts all the time as well. Woke up, popped them in. Just before I go to bed pop them out. When I started trying to improve my vision I noticed that my eyes were so used to the contacts that I could only see clearly about 2" in front of my nose! Now I can see about 8-9" away.
You can do it with lower prescription contacts but glasses have an advantage of being able to remove them easily to read something close up like a book or letter or invoice. I think eventually you'll go to glasses because as you progress and you see that you DO have the ability to correct your vision that you'll get more excited about vision improvement and will want to remove them more and more during the day. For example, I often take them off at work during lunch or in meetings.
I even tore apart part of my cubicle walls so that I can look out the window into the distance every now and then. :)
I feel on the right path!
I am already experimenting without lenses right now, and I have noticed that after all it is not impossible to do. It is more likely a psichological than physical aid.
do you think that close reading without lenses (2-3 inches in between eyes & book/monitor) is dangerous or straining? I was ever told so.
I think I'm most glad that you aren't seeking surgery for your eye condition!
It didn't hurt me reading so close but then I started at -4.5 but I think you're prescription is double my original. The next time you go in for an eye exam ask for a reduced prescription reading/computer glasses as well. If the cost of glasses are a problem there are online glass makers that can ship you a pair for ~$25. http://www.goggles4u.com/
I've used goggles4u for my glasses just because they had a pair I liked.
Oh, btw, I got my older sister to start practing eye improvement. One of the first things she did was get a reduced prescription for work. She's around -9 as well. She was telling me how she took off her glasses while attending a conference and there was a powerpoint presentation on the front of the room and suddenly she could see it and was amazed! This is what is known as a clear flash and it lasts a few moments.
Good luck! I'm very happy that you are on your way to improving your vision!
I have experienced some headache that I think might be connected with the poor use of lenses in the past days, so I am wearing them again during the day, even if not that much.
I guess that as every addiction, it takes its time to leave, I cannot go cold turkey with it.
I will wait for the book to come and then start exercise.
I feel somewhat impatient!
Many thanks for your kind and prompt answers. I do not know if I will order glasses from a website because I live in EU and shipping might be expensive.I'm gonna check.
I have a lot of astygmatism (is spelling ok?), too. What about it? should the new prescription ignore that?
Yes, I too get eye strain for the first week or two when I reduce my prescription. If that happens I just put on my stronger prescription. But soon I'm used to the new one. Before when my vision was getting weaker and weaker and my prescription stronger and stronger I noticed eye strain and headaches with the new prescription. The doctors always say, "you'll get used to it". That's true but if you don't maybe you got a prescription too weak/strong for your current situation.
I'm sure there must be online prescription glass companies in the EU. May have to search a bit. If not join those yahoo groups and ask around there. There are people from all over the world on those groups. And I highly recommend those yahoo groups. A great online community of people commited to improving vision. I think curezone is great but it's just not quite there yet for vision improvement. I came here for cleansing advice and stumbled upon this vision forum. :)
As far as astigmatism. If it's not too bad you don't have to have it. After all there are so many people with astigmatic vision and they wear contacts which do not correct for astigmatism. I noticed that as I practice good vision habits my astigmatism changes. My last doctor noticed it too while I was taking the tests. I'd recommend leaving the astigmatism out and if necessary up the prescription slightly to compensate for the lack of astigmatism correction. But that's my experience. Your body is different and may or may not be ready for it.
I will go on yahoo groups to look for advices.
I actually have a lot of agstysmatism on my right eye (3.5 if I am not wrong), much more than on left eye. I will try and see if this difference can be bothering to me and decide what to do.
Which cleanses are you interested in ? I am looking for cleanses too, I just decided to get some Schulze's formulas. Let me know . thanks for yr friendly help.
I don't know which cleanse I want to do. I am generally very healthy and was turning to cleanses as preventative maintenance...not because there is something specifically wrong with me. So I want to start off lightly and use a cleanse that I can easily do. I'll probably wait till summer till I do a cleanse because I have so much going on during the school semester that I would have a hard time finding a section of time to do a cleanse.
I received bates's book and started exercising a bit. However, I am not sure of my full understandig of the method. i find very hard to see black when I close my eyes for palming, I rather see some kind of black, not what is supposed to be a perfect black. I guess that "seeing black" is more like a mind attitude than a physical thing, am I wrong? Some kind of meditation maybe? what is your experience?
I'd like to know what kind of exercise you have done exactly, have you just practiced some microtext reading or did you use snellen tables? I really hate snellen tables because I really cannot see them clearly even at half of the suggested distance.
please answer if you have any suggestion
ps do you think that magic eye pictures and micro-reading would be enough for exercising and relaxing my eyes?
When I first started palming I had a REAL hard time seeing black. I think I still do but it's much better than when I first started. When I first tried I saw lots of sparkles of different colors. Kinda hard to explain. But don't feel bad, lots of people have a hard time at first. But it gets better. From what I read it vision does come from the mind. The eyes are actually an extension of the brain. I noticed that the first few nights that my eyes would twitch as well when I was trying to sleep which I took as a positive sign. I was consciously trying to relax my eyes. I guess my point is to be open and listen to your body especially in the first few weeks.
Also what works for others may not work best for you. And vice versa.
I practice my reading when I'm at work 8 hours a day on my computer. I put the monitor just slightly out of focus and wear my reduced prescription glasses. Sometimes I have to pause and wait for my vision to relax before I can work. Sometimes I have bad days and have to scoot my chair in closer but other days are better and I can scoot out but overall progress is good.
I personally find benefit going for slow walks and relaxing my whole body. I have lots of tension in my neck and lower back and I have to loosen it up and relax my eyes at the same time. I also love going to the park or beach and gazing far distances. That helps me tremendously. Just relax and accept that you can't see that far, YET! Don't get frustrated and squint. Just relax and see what you can see. "Oh, look that's probably a person walking by. Oh, I think it's a man. He has a dog. I don't know what kind, but that's okay. If I really need to I can put on my glasses but I choose not to."
Have you taken yoga classes? They really helped me in learning how much tension I have in my body and how to scan for it and release it. If you don't know how to scan your body and release tension then I'd highly recommend yoga or some other relaxation/meditation classes.
thanks for answering.
I am now waiting for being accepted in a bates method's yahoo group
I got reduced prescription -1.5 on both eyes and no astygmatism correction. In the past days I did not use contact lenses at all trying to get used to these glasses.
I noticed that astygmatism comes and goes all through the day , sometimes it is there, sometimes it is not.
I have noticed a weird thing when I look at stereograms, that is, when I look at them without glasses I cannot always see them clearly. Sometimes I see a pattern, but it appears to be wrong in several parts. Some patterns can be seen perfectly,while others just do not work, some parts remain somewhat blurred and image seems to be split in two
When I put on my reduced prescription glasses I can see image clearly, even if it takes more time to get it.
Since I do not have astygmatism correctio on my new glasses I guess it cannot be astygmatism. Sp my worry is, could it be an eye working less than the other? when I was a child I had a lazy right eye, had to cover the left several hours a day to correct it.
I find very strange seeing 3d but not seeing it properly!
I am now trying to accept these new glasses together with the fact that I actually DO have a vision problem, which I was completely used to ignore with the use of lenses.
How much do you think that my attitude towards life influences vision? I am somewhat nervous and always in a hurry even if I have no reason to. Glasses are helping me to slow down a bit, too.
Unfortunately there is very little I can see to the naked eye ( two inches or so of clear vision ). it is a little upsetting .,...but I see life differently with a little more relaxed attitude.
let's start another 3d...aswer on top of page, this is getting too long
I just finished reading all your posts and the responses for your posts. Would you mind sharing your experience on Dr. Bates' method. I noticed your posts were about 8 months ago and wanted to see how are you doing and also if you would recommend this method or have found other ways to improve your eyesight. I have a very poor eyesight and it seems like it is getting worst as time pass. My husband wanted me to have a laser surgery,but I really don't feel comfortable doing it. Please let me know what do you think.
I have horrible vision, but my doctor thought that Vision correction surgery would be successful for me. I'm not sure and I'm very nervous after reading some boards. I am seeing a doctor at Vision Eye Institute (http://www.visioneyeinstitute.com.au/) in Sydney. I found it online and it seemed really good, but I'm getting worried about whether or not I should go through with it. Has anyone been to this clinic and have a success story? Please let me know
seeing colors? no, not really. but i did one night just as dusk was settling in. that visual purple was just a sign of things to come, though.
i pull at least five times a day, mostly in a row, maybe with a little break in between or maybe a drink of water in between. the magic number seems to be five. here is what definitely has been happening.
i get a feeling in my head that feels like a tingle. it is certainly a lightness of being. i feel calmer and think more clearly. i am in a good mood and have plenty of energy. i do this in the late afternoon and it lasts into the evening, even till bed.
my night vision is supremo. i am not bothered by the brightest lights, glare from rain conditions, none of it. my vision is clear at night and i can see as far as the light reaches.
then there is this. i get that kundalini "chill" up and down my spine almost on a daily basis. there are times when i can make it happen time after time after time.
how long have you been pulling? Also, how "bad" were your eyes? Then, how long before you noticed a difference in your eyes?
I have been wearing glasses since I was in 2nd grade (7 y.o., maybe?). I am now 44 and just last year I had to get bi-focals although I am somewhat vain and ended up spending more money so that they were the No Line bifocals. I would LOVE to go to my eye doctor next June and him say something to the effect "what did you do differently?" He told me my eyes were 'borderline' for a stronger 'script.
I pull at least once a day, if I eat lunch around 11:30-12 and do not get strong urges to eat before I get home, sometime after 4, I will pull again before I go eat. Also, I did pull 5 times, as I mentioned in a post to you earlier!
Thanks for your help and have an inspired evening!
I am not familiar with the see clearly method, I am familiar with the bates method. I wore glasses when I was a kid, for approx. 1 year(I refused to wear them any longer, I hated them)... :)(I was quite headstrong) & my vision has been fine ever since. I do the exercises from time to time, espc when my eyes are strained. I also do the palming and sungazing. I notice that my vision weakens if I'm not taking care of myself.
Bates believed that noone should wear glasses. The method consists of exercises, palming & some sungazing and is well worth looking into!
AND, by all means, keep swishin! :)
*edit* I just looked at the link I gave you and saw that it does not cover the exercises, Not to worry, there is a book called "The Bates Method" that covers it all. I know it's available from Amazon. :)
I am not sure if this is what you mean for sungazing...but I heard something about that (if the same) this past summer. Where you stare into the sun, for several moments at a time, each day? If so, can you tell me a little more about it or lead me to where? I had an acquaintance mention something about it, one day but we were interrupted and I never got back to her.
There is a sungazing support forum here on Curezone although it's not that active...People are very methodical about their sungazing, timing their exposure & whatnot. I'm not methodical at all. The best time to do it is when it's not that strong, when the sun is low in the sky. I just gaze into the sun for a few moments. It's a lovely feeling to feel the sun's warmth in your eyes. I also move my eyes a bit, so that the light can hit all around the back of my eyeballs. Sorry for the lack of technical terms, here:) Anyway, It feels really good and immediately afterwards colors brighten and everything gets sharper. I also feel a rush of energy. I'm lucky to live in sunny place because I do this a few times daily and really miss it on those cloudy days.
And, check out the Sungazing support forum, more info there... :)
I will check out the Sungazing forum. Also, I do not need 'technical terms', your explanation was the best...clear and concise! It sounds pretty great. LOL Now I have to hope for some sun! Just got winter weather this past weekend...previous it was pretty mild here!
Funny how sun gazing can do that... I do 60 seconds 1 - 3 times a day when I can. It makes a huge difference almost immediately. I can now drive into the sun without a sun visor... I never thought that possible before.
I do not wear sunglasses as much as I used to...when contacts are in. Although glasses now have where they tint when I go out into sun. When contacts are in, once in a while I will bring visor down if sun is real bright, elsewise I "deal with sun"...so, a good start?! :-)
Thanks alot. I looked at it and copied it so that I can check it out and start doing what it suggests. I find it interesting that stress was mentioned. I knew it affected a great majority of our body but I guess I never thought eyes were part of it! Makes sense though!
Thanks again for sharing that article and have an inspired evening!
i have a light prescription bifocal. my night vision at one time was awful. i have not worked on my vision yet, but i do think i could correct it with exercise and some herbs. this night vision thing is phenomenal. i wouldnt have mentioned it if it were not so.
that was a chemically induced dumping of your visual purple stores. i now obviously have plenty. my canabis smoking hurt my health more than i thought while i was doing it. it did help keep me sane, however. it insulated me from the reality of my illness, which was devestating. most recreational use of drugs is self medication - a symptom as opposed to a disease.
Are eye problems (myopia, in my case) caused by an imbalance or weakness of the eyes due to a wrong diet? I have read about the Bates method, which says basically that anxiety or psychological issues are the ones creating the problems to begin with, and that eye doctors make the problem worse by prescribing glasses/contacts instead of treating the root cause (just like dentists and MDs). $$$ talks, of course, and Bates was discredited just like Dr. Christopher and others by the medical profession because his method to cure eye conditions was easy and cheap.
Do you think an orange fast first, and then a healthy diet/lifestyle like you suggest will help my eyes reverse the near-sightedness? Or would it be helpful to try Bates' method as well?
p.s. I just finished reading your 108 page book and I am almost ready to purchase Book I (waiting for next paycheck!)
hello, I have an extremely serious myopia and I am trying the Bates method since 2 years ( I use no glasses and no lenses anymore) What I can tell you is that when Bates wrote the book most myopic people did not use glasses at all and for this reason they had very quick recoveries just with Bates method. Wearing glasses for years and years makes your eye muscles so weak that the only way to get improvements that will last is doing the eye workouts (rotations and such) until your eyes will hurt, every day. Doing so you will prepare you to use Bates method, if you don't , you cannot be cured . Just my opinion. greetings.
You raised a good point! many people give up too quickly and say that Dr Bates work is nothing but crap.
Check out some nice articles and products on the following blog: http://eyeexercisesforcomputerusers.com
Book I can be purchased, but zero need, now all the info will be on the schooling page.
Bates info is best along with herbal and fasting is always good.
The eyes have the problem of letting in trash from your blood, that gets trapped and does not come out, aka lack of circulation. Restore the circulation and your liver/MIND, etc. will do the work and the results based on what you BELIEVE. Your MIND will make your eyes to the state that YOU BELIEVE they should be. You being your own worse enemy in every case of health of the body.
I believe what Bates wrote and I believe what Dr. Christopher wrote about eyes and I believe the fasting books and the alkalizing books stated that the authors needed no glasses after their body returned to an alkaline state.
I only wear glasses to drive a car, I have been near sighted all my life, muy buddy from high school became a eye doctor and he says I have very healthy eyes, but the problem with the near sighted ness is an inherieted problem I got from my parents, in that I was born with the problem. Our body/mind has a blue print or lets say, magnetic blue print to follow. Can my body make better something that I was born with????????????????????? Dr. Christopher says it never does any harm to try. He would suggest the eye wash and eye tonic along with proper use of the B&B and I would add the Bates, fasting and alkaline diet methods and decide after 2 years if it was worth doing, at the worse you will have younger body.
I know allot of eye doctors sell online videos, etc. saying do this and throw your glasses away and I assure you, 99% of the people throw their $$$ away and not their glasses.
The bates and sunshine info is pretty good, but Dr. Christopher understood the causes and those causes must be aided and removed and distilled water, herbs, etc. are a must for anyone serious about having perfect eye sight naturally.
Bates method is surely real. I had an instant cure of bad myopia during an enlightenment experience wherein powerful energy like I have never felt before surged through my body and mind for more than 15 minutes. No words can describe the ecstasy and joy experienced at that time, which was my reconciliation with God and restoration of faith. In fact, my practicing of the Bates method while high on marijuana is surely what precipitated it. I was trying to understand why I could not make it work why I wanted to (the idea of relaxing while trying to accomplish something was quite alien to me), and everytime a question arose in my practice of it, it was answered immediately by a lyric in a song, which were being played on randomize. I realized at a certain point I was being guided by a higher power, and at the moment I fully grasped it simultaneously a lyric "hey, what are you looking at" played as the energy flooded my body and my vision synchronized to perfection.
However, I my vision regressed shortly after the dissipation of this energy. The divine purpose was only to reestablish a relationship with God and demonstrate that my goals can be achieved through faithful diligence. My visual healing was not carried through permanently because my visual acuity and temporary clear flashes are being used as a teaching/feedback tool in helping me introspectively resolve all my psychological/emotional issues.
I also noticed substantial visual improvement and many clear flashes while taking MH's kidney cleanse product and fasting on raw vegan superfoods.
Also, I don't wear glasses the majority of the time including while driving in the daytime and I have not done so basically ever since I discovered Bates. When I do wear glasses, it is a prescription that is half what my original was before my interest in Bates and it is quite adequate.
It's nice to hear that you have benefited from the Bates Method. I encountered some guys on forums who always say that there is no scientific evidence around the subject.
Anyway, if you need a website that supports the Bates Method or natural improvement products, here's a good website: http://eyeexercisesforcomputerusers.com
