Welcome back, this is an exciting video for anyone who is suffering from eye problems like computer eye strain or poor vision and also more complex eye problems like diabetic retinopathy, cataracts and glaucoma. I am going to show you how to use Bilberry, Ginkgo, this funny picture and this kinky mask to greatly improve your eye health without resorting to drugs or surgeries. Most eye conditions are degenerative in nature and share a common mechanism of disease. You may have noticed something called floaters, air bubbles floating across your field of vision. These are small pieces of membrane tissues that have broken off the back of the eye. Also many people will get quick flashes of light in the corners of their vision which is the result of tearing of that membrane. Small dark spots in the vision is likely blood which has pooled from these Injuries. It can be scary to experience these things but luckily you can help prevent future eye degeneration and repair existing damage with these simple recommendations. The focus here is improving the health of the eye and not just targeting your symptoms.
I read that in the second world war pilots in the British Air Force were given Bilberry jam in efforts to improve their night vision. A Bilberry looks like a big Blueberry but it is red inside instead of white. The Bilberry has an active flavonoid called ANTHRO-cyan-osides that is responsible for most of its benefits.
✅ Bilberry has been shown to have a positive effect on stabilizing collagen
✅ Improving microcirculation
✅ Relieving eye strain
✅ Diabetic retinopathy
The dosage of active ingredient needed to get these therapeutic effects is between 60-170 mg of Anthrocyanosides. The best source of this is from Mediherb which offers a 100:1 extract that contains 21.6 mg per tablet, so they are using 6,000mgs of Billbery to get 60mg of extract. So between 3 and 8 tablets a day depending on the severity of the condition. Taken with food.
Most people have heard of Ginkgo, but don’t know that the plant has both beneficial very important. and undesirable components. So like all herbs how it is processed is very important. Again this is why l only use Mediherb Gingko Forte.A 50:1 extract that has all the right components. Gingko has been proven effective in increasing circulation to the legs and patients also reported being able to walk further distances. It has also been proven to increase blood circulation to the brain and improvement of mental functions like mathematics. I have always used this to support any brain or cognitive disorders, like ADD, Dementia or Alzheimer’s. Gingko works quickly. I usually instruct patients to take 2 or 3 tablets prior to any situation where I need to be on my game such as a lecture or before taking an exam and results will start to be felt in about a half hour after taking the tablets. I recommend Ginkgo for eye disorders as a general support to increase blood flow to the eyes and also to support the visual centers of the brain. When used with Bilberry it works like magic.
Of course it is important to exercise th eeyes and there are many available programs on the internet that you can find. One traditional program is known as the Bates method but there are others. It is important that before you start exercising the eyes you give them a few weeks to get healthy and improve their blood flow, otherwise you can actually tear the membranes and create problems like floaters and flashers. I recommend using a laser pointer and following a set of patterns on th e wall that move you through a complete range of motion. I also suggest you focus on distant objects and near objects, back and forth this is called accommodation and it is very important in getting the eyes healthy. There is also a traditional diagram you can use called the Tibetan eye chart, (google it) just print it off and follow the instructions.
MANTA SLEEP MASK
The final piece of th e puzzle is you need to spend 10-20 minutes a day resting the eyes in complete darkness. The only way I have found to be able to do this is with a eye mask. The best one available is from Mantra Sleep. It has these cups that protect the eye lids so you can open and close your eyes in complete darkness wheelie you rest. The key is to keep them open and allow your pupils to completely dialate when in the darkness. You can even use these to sleep at night, they are super comfortable.
As many of you already know I have been in clinical practice for 20 years and everything I discuss in these videos are based on the results I have seen with my patients, I am a clinician and not a scientist so please keep that in mind when you are deciding on treatment approach. Everything does not work for everyone and anything strong enough to help will also have the opposite effect if used incorrectly. It is important to always proceed cautiously but with optimism whenever taking a supplement or trying a new therapy. Finally especially when it comes to herbs you must use standardized extracts, many products are from China and contain no useful medicines, because of this I have only use Mediherb products with my patients and I suggest you do the same. You can follow the link below and purchase directly from Mediherb and be assured that you are getting the very best extracts available free from contaminants.
