Vitamin A is wonderful, but only one aspect of good eye health. You see, rhodopsin, the visual pigment which allows us to perceive images when they’re projected on the retina of our eye, is highly dependent on vitamin A for it’s formation, and a healthy liver for conversion and storage.
What creates the greatest problem of poor eyesight isn’t a lack of rhodopsin, but failure of the the eye to focus the image on the retina. If you’ve ever used a manual focus camera, and failed to get your subject in focus, that’s what’s happening. Glasses change how the image meets the retina. If the eye fails to change shape enough, glasses finish the job.
Stiff membranes, muscular weakness, calcified, hardened cells, liver problems, and circulatory imbalances, all contribute to visual impairments. Finding the cause helps with the cure.
Since your body isn’t just an eye, it’s important to know what else is going on in your system to aid your visual acuity. Specialization can cause create tunnel vision. When you evaluate the entire system, it will give clues as to why we suffer various conditions, including poor eyesight.
The eye, just like all other organs can suffer autoimmune activities. This can show up as destruction of the retina due to macular degeneration. This is where increased vascular tissue shows up, taking the place of the rods and cones of the retina, and crowding out the nerves that relay information to the brain.
Increased vascularization of the eyes signals vascular impairment elsewhere in the body, and autoimmune activity against the eye itself. In cases like this, the protomorphogen of eye would be used to act as an oral antigen to bind up antibody activity against the eyes. Two cases I’m presently working with have had to get their prescription changed, as their eyesight has actually been getting better. This is rarely the case if left to the natural degradation of the eyes.
As I’ve shown in the past, the juice of the fresh green buckwheat leaf has wonderful benefits in aiding circulation and improving the tone of the blood vessels. To improve the health of any tissue, a good source of nutrition and oxygen is critical. Impaired blood flow will always lead to increased tissue damage.
When it comes to flexibility of tissues, good fatty acids are a must. Vitamin F, which I talked about last week, assists in calcium regulation in the tissues. We need the calcium to effect both contraction, and relaxation of tissues. This allows for better focus. It’s not uncommon for me to see many cases of strained muscles this time of year with an increased intake of sugar, knocking calcium out of the tissues. With that, both a good source of essential fatty acids along with a calcium which is fully assimilable, like calcium lactate is important.
Another component required for healthy muscle contraction is potassium. This is the nutrient missing in many of our young people who refuse to eat their vegetables. It’s not just oranges and bananas where you get this super nutrient. Alfalfa is rich in potassium, and the source used in the organic mineral supplement I dispense here in my office.
Nerve function is critical, both in activating muscles to both contract and relax, as well as transporting information to the occipital lobe of the brain. B vitamins, especially niacinamide, are required for healthy nerve function. Again, evaluating systemic nerve function may reveal an underlying cause of visual disturbances. Does your eye doctor ask critical questions about other health issues or is he or she just looking at your eyes? What about your liver and drug usage?
Since our eyes are part of the brain, they can warn of impending problems with cognition. Dementia and Alzheimer’s could be signaling other nerve related issues. Rapid changes in eyesight could be a major warning sign. Can we prevent dementia? Why not?
One of the supports I use, consists of all the elements I’ve noted here, and more. There’s even protomorphogen support for both eye and bone. This product has been making changes in eyesight and could help prevent catastrophic events in peoples lives. If interested, call for help.
