Eye Habit Number Three - The Invigorating Lemon Juice Eye Bath
Dr. William Apt, a leading eye specialist in the mid-1900s, recommended the Lemon Juice Eye Bath. He stumbled upon this secret from a 105 year old man. He instructed Dr. Apt to "put three or four drops of lemon juice in an eye cup with purified water and wash the eyes with it daily for about 20-30 seconds with each eye." Dr. Apt says it is invigorating and strengthening. It removes toxic fatigue of the eye. This ancient oldster washes his eyes daily, eats natural foods, wears no glasses, and has perfect eyesight! The Lemon Juice Eye Bath is also recommended to cure cataracts, with osteopathic treatment, plus a strict seven-day elimination (vegetable and fruit) diet, once a month. The continuous practice of these eye improvement secrets will eventually help you to see clearly what you cannot see now.
Mantak Chia has an entire book of eye strenghtening methods, online.
he restored his own vision using these practices.
i can personally attest to the value of the lemon juice. ( I would like to restore my vision to not needing reading glasses. Already, it has improved from needing distance glasses). Not having an eyecup, I simply take three eyedroppers of the water lemon mix, in each eye. Sometimes I do both eyes, and keeping the had tilted back to retain the mixture longer, trace the alphabet with my eyes 'drawing' the letters. This is mixing up an exercise of Bates, for strengthening vision, but it just feels right, so I do it.
The lemon eyebath is surprisingly refreshing, and relaxing. We only have to get past the idea that it will burn or sting. it might do, but only briefly.
