Improve Your Eyesight! May 18, 2012

So lately most of my time has been spent on my computer, either trying to finish up my book (coming soon!) or getting my online store together (coming even sooner!). We all know how bad computers can be for the eyesight, not just the fact that you are staring into a bright screen but because you are staring at something right in front of your face. This is the main reason our eyesight goes bad. Just like any other muscle, our eyes need exercise. If we are staring at something right in front of us all day long, our eyes get no exercise and they begin to weaken. We no longer take in the light as we should, and colors become dull and things get blurry. A few weeks ago, i began to realize how bad my eyesight was becoming because my eyes would become easily tired when reading, and i was often in need of my glasses when doing computer work or reading. Street signs were also becoming impossible to read. I did not like this one bit.

I started looking into the typical eye exercises and began to do them. I then was shopping at one of my favorite online raw food stores, and i saw pinhole sunglasses. I did some research on them and read some reviews and saw that people have had great success.

It has been only one week of using these constantly every day for 15-30 minutes, and i already notice a difference! My eyes are not becoming as tired as easily, and i am beginning to make out words better. I also noticed i do not need to hold a book right in front of my eyes to see the words. I am amazed by these and wanted to share them with you.

How the eye works:

-Light enters the cornea. The curved shape allows light to enter from different angles that concentrates into a beam of light that enters the pupil

-The pupil regulates the amount of light that enters into the eye, passing the beam of light to the lens

-The lens focuses the beam of light through the vitreous humor and onto the retina near the back of the eyeball.

-When it reaches the retina, it transmits the info to the optic nerve which sends the image to the brain.

Individuals with eye issues normally suffer with an eye lens that is too weak or a cornea or eyeball may be misshapen. When these issues are present, the light ray becomes focused in front or behind the retina, which forms an unfocused image on the retina itself.

How Pinhole glasses work:

-These glasses reduce the diversity of angles where light rays can enter the eyes, allowing only direct light rays with a narrow path to enter the cornea. You know how when you try to see more clearly and you squint your eyes? Its the same basic principle.

These glasses are truly amazing, and I’ve read of people on the verge of getting laser surgery whose eyesight completely improved to the point of not needed glasses.

If you are looking to ditch your eyeglasses and regain your eyesight, i suggest you try them out! They can be found HERE.

 

The Importance of DHA!!!! September 24, 2011

Omega 3s are widely being talked about. Finally, the importance of the substance is being addressed. Many people hear mostly about it here and there, being good for the heart and the blood. But Omega 3’s are for so much more, and it is most vital that we have them. Before I get into their importance, I would like to first address the 3 main types of Omega 3’s available, to ensure you know the difference.

a-linolenic acid- (ALA)   is a form of omega 3 found mostly in plant based foods such as Hemp seeds and flax seeds.  These are short chain fatty acids, and in order for the brain to use them they must be converted into long chain. Most people cannot make this conversion.

 

 

Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)-  is a precursor to DHA. It is found in mostly animal products such as fish. It is a short chain

Docosahexaeonic acid (DHA)-  is a long chain fatty acid that is most needed by the human body (along with EPA) This is what the majority of people are lacking and need. It plays an important role in signal transmission in the brain and nervous system. It is also important for the eyes… they are made of DHA! fatty acid and can be used by the brain.
Soooo what’s the big deal about omega 3’s? Well, first, as most of us hear they are great for the heart. Many studies have been done with EPA and DHA with cardiovascular disease and it has been shown that both play a major role in preventative care.  Most of these studies have shown that supplementation of DHA/EPA have significantly lowered high triglycerides (by 45%) and VLDL (by more than 50%).

Have bad eyesight? YOUR EYES ARE MADE OF DHA!

Brain function!! DHA plays a major role in brain function! Many people who have struggled with ADD/ADHD symptoms most of their life and have added DHA supplementation to their diet claim to have much better concentration and symptoms of the said above completely diminishing .

Your brain needs DHA for proper function.  If you are struggling with poor memory or other cognitive skills I would highly suggest a DHA supplement.

So where do we get out DHA from? Most people will tell you from fish/fish oil/krill oil. Fish oil his highly contaminated. With our polluted waters I would consider it dangerous and not worth it to put any kind of fish product into your body, especially on a daily basis. Fish oil is also not highly absorbable by the human body. You are going to need around 3g of fish oil per day to receive desired effects.

Lower on the food chain fall the krill. There are more krill on the planet than there are ants! Krill are tiny shrimp like organisms that live in algae. Krill are much cleaner and more absorbable by the human body, with an average dose of 1g per day for effective results.

Fish and krill DO NOT ACTUALLY PRODUCE DHA! So where do they get it? Well, the fish feed on the krill, and the krill feed on marine phytoplankton. The phytoplankton is the main source of the DHA. When it comes to DHA you want the cleanest most bioavailable source, the one that is lowest on the food chain.

Marine Phytoplankton is the most bioavailable concentrated source of DHA. The average dose is only 300mg. I found an amazing product that is completely vegan called O-Mega-Zen3. After 3 days of taking this product I noticed my brain function enhance

 immensely! My memory, which I have struggled with due to past issues, has been functioning so much better! I wish I would havefound this product sooner. My father, who has been taking fish oils for years switched to this product when I informed him of my success and he made the switch to try it out. He too noticed a mega difference! I really recommend trying this product, its inexpensive and worth every penny! I know you will feel such a difference in your mental function! Try it for yourself! (click me!)
