After suffering from severe visual disturbances and eye pain last year, I found out from my eye doctor that %80 of the optic nerve in my left eye was damaged. My eye doctor went on further to explain that the damage was irreversible as the optic nerve is not capable of regenerating and that there are currently no surgeries or treatments available to reverse the damage. I was devastated. My depth perception was gone, and I was horribly depressed. I began doing research online and read quite a bit about castor oil and it's healing benefits when absorbed through skin. I figured I had nothing to lose, and began applying castor oil over my left eye lid every night while I prayed. I know this forum focuses more on natural healing through herbs etc but I believe prayer and my faith played a bigger part than the castor oil did. The next morning, the pain behind my eye was gone.After 2 - 3 months I began to notice gradual visual improvements, then BAM..woke up one morning a few months after doing this and there was nothing wrong..no visual problems, NOTHING. I couldn't believe it. Went to my eye doctor last week who sounded more than stunned when he announced there was no trace of nerve damage anywhere on my left nerve. Prayer is a very powerful tool, I feel like I'm obligated to post and share this because people have a way of forgetting how powerful our god is regardless of what religion you follow. What I experienced is nothing short of a miracle as it is medically impossible according to my doctor. I encourage everyone reading this post to combine prayer with what ever other regimen you do for any ailment.
