Let the Sun Nourish Your Eyes

The sun isn’t the only thing that makes you squint. Cataracts can too.

Word from reality television is that TLC star and Honey Boo Boo matriarch Mama June Shannon has difficulty reading text messages on her cell phone because of cataracts from childhood that went untreated and have left things ?blurry.?

Though childhood cataracts are different from those that affect older eyes, there is an alarming, and growing, epidemic of cataract sufferers.

Over 20 million Americans over the age of 40 have cataracts, as do half – yes, half! – of all Americans over the age of 80.

Are you paying attention to early warning signs that might signal the onset of cataracts, or at least signal that your eyes are needing more nutritional support? For example:

+ Is driving at night becoming more difficult?

+ Are your eyes increasingly bothered by glare?

+ Do your eyes struggle to adjust to changes in light?

+ Are you constantly reaching for your sunglasses?

Do you know that when you feel that the sun is too bright, it doesn’t necessarily mean that your eyes are just ?sensitive?? Rather it probably means that your eyes are starved for natural light – and also starved for the nutrients that protect your eyes and make them stronger and healthier.

Sunlight is a nutrient for the body, just like food and water, and it is healthy to get some every day.

While sunglasses serve a purpose, research suggests that using sunglasses alone is not the real way to protect your eyes.

While it may seem that developing cataracts is unavoidable ? that we’re all at risk for having them ? the truth is that not everyone gets cataracts and not everyone who has cataracts suffers from ever-declining vision.

In other words, cataracts are not the result of age. More accurately, they are the result of visual degeneration and lack of nourishment – regardless of age.

Healthy eyes don’t get cataracts, no matter how old you are.

Mama June’s eyes are such that even surgery wouldn’t help ? at this point doctors believe it would make it worse ? and she is only 33 years old. This is a very public reminder of why it’s so important to pay attention to your eyesight and your vision.

Over the years we’ve seen people halt the progression of their cataracts, we’ve seen people with cataracts improve their vision and we’ve seen people’s cataracts reversed even though conventional, ordinary doctors believe that that’s not possible.

Whether you have a cataract or not, you can take steps right now to make your eyes healthier. One way is to nourish your eyes with sunlight.

Your eyes see best in natural light. Used properly, the sun can nourish your eyes.

One way to relieve your eyes’ sensitivity to light is by getting them re-accustomed to what they were used to and have always needed ? regular exposure to sunlight.

This exercise takes only a couple of minutes, but it will make your eyes feel less sensitive to glare and nourish your visual system by exercising the focusing muscles of your eyes. Click here.

Of course, food is another nutrient for the eyes.

Unfortunately, your eyes can’t get all the nutrients they need through food alone. You must supplement with the right minerals, the right vitamins and the right antioxidants in the right combinations and the right dosages.

When ophthalmologist Dr. Gary Price Todd, who was an expert in nutrition, studied blood samples from his patients he discovered that the eyes needed more than vitamin A, vitamin C, zinc, lutein and zeaxanthin to be as healthy as they could be.

As a result of his research, he combined 33 different vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants into EYEMAX-plus, a comprehensive vision formula that nourishes your eyes.

That’s why the real solution to healthier eyes is to give them the right nutrients ? and two of the most important of these are light and food/supplements.
