TOP 5 HERBS FOR IMPROVING EYE HEALTH

 

When it comes to vision health, there are so many components that make up the eyes that it would be a disservice if I did not expand first on certain principles before the main topic. In my book, “Fasting With The Masters,” I go over my personal journey of 10 years with my vision and the holistic approaches to improve it.

 

The eyes are known as the windows of the soul, and eye contact is important when making genuine connections in life. It is because of this reason that I share this, as healing the eyes goes a long way, perhaps more than we realize.

 

In short, the function of the eyes is not limited to physical sight and vision is not what we think. We can grasp this by the studies of “Iridology,” which shows how the eyes reflect health conditions of the mayor organs in the body, based on patterns within our own eyes that can be recognized.

 

The eyes are 95% water, which means they are meant to function optimally when we have plenty of fluids, and when healthy lifestyles are incorporated, adding some of these herbs will bring about accelerated healing for vision.

 

That aside, the eyes are light sensitive of course, so all of these herbs will work at their best with proper sunlight. Meaning, exposure to sun without prescription lenses and sunglasses is ideal to increase the eyes light receptors and condition them to work with natural light as much as possible.

 

It is with high regard that I can share some great herbs that I have learned about. That, alongside proper alkaline lifestyle and fasting practices, has proven useful for healing the eyes and vision, and is a great way to start learning about natural ways of improving vision health.

 

However, not all of these herbs are safe to use without supervision and proper guidance as the intent is only to provide genuine high quality information.

 

By mentioning these herbs, I am also NOT unconditionally approving or recommending unauthorized sources for these herbs, as quality does affect the result. Inadequacy in this can be harmful and reader must proceed with discernment in these matters.

 

If you are interested in working on your vision health in a sustainable way that’s guided with coaching and proper sources of these herbal medicines, then I recommend our Elite Coaching programs or Advanced Detox packages to avoid mistakes and unfavorable results.

EYEBRIGHT

 

Eyebright (Euphrasia officinalis) is a wild plant native to Europe.

 

The parts that grow above the ground are used to make medicine.

Eyebright is used to treat eye conditions such as conjunctivitis and eyestrain.

 

Eyebright contains compounds called tannins, which appear to possess anti-inflammatory properties. In herbal medicine, it is often used as an ingredient in eyewashes, eye drops, or compresses applied to the eyes.

 

It also contains vitamins A, B (thiamine and riboflavin), C, and E, which all have eye-nourishing properties. The vitamin B-1 (thiamine) found in eyebright is crucial for intracellular eye metabolism. Zinc, selenium, and copper are also found in eyebright and help contribute to healthy retinas and lenses, while rutin (A flavonoid compound found in plants) offers nutritional support to the eyes.

 

So now you see it! Eyebright is a great herb for your overall eye health. Many people don’t know that when had as tea, it assists immune system functions and provides strength during colds, fevers, excessive mucus and allergic conditions.

 

Next we have, 

 

BILBERRY

 

Bilberry, (Vaccinium myrtillus), also called whortleberry. It is found in woods and on heaths, chiefly in hilly districts of Great Britain, northern Europe, and Asia.

Bilberries are a fruit closely related to blueberries.

 

Rich in antioxidants known as anthocyanins and polyphenols, bilberries have been used for medicinal purposes for conditions ranging from eye conditions to diabetes. Bilberry is used as a remedy for eye conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, dry eyes, and retinitis pigmentosa. It helps reduce the risk of macular degeneration, the irreversible condition that occurs when the macula, the central portion of the retina, deteriorates. 

The retina is the tissue at the back of the eye that detects light.

 

Bilberry is also used to treat poor circulation, diabetes, high blood pressure, gout, urinary tract infections (UTIs), and many other conditions. 

 

Include this powerful herb into your lifestyle by infusing the leaves into tea and see what it can do for you to keep your eye health at its best! 

 

The following one must be treated with caution.

 

BARBERRY

 

(Berberis vulgaris,) commonly known as barberry, is a shrub that grows tart, red berries. Barberry is native to Europe.

 

The medicinal use of barberry dates back more than 2,500 years! It has been used in Indian herbal medicine to treat diarrhea, reduce fever, improve appetite, relieve upset stomach, and promote vigor, as well as a sense of well being.

 

Barberry is considered an effective remedy for keeping your eyes healthy simply because it contains lots of berberine. The compound improves your eye health, and it can even be used to treat conjunctivitis.

 

When made into eye drops it is extremely powerful to clean mucus behind the eyes. It is a very uncomfortable experience and this form of working with is one of the most dangerous of the ratios in the eye liquid extract are not correct. Even without using it for drops, one must be careful about this herb as it is astringent as it is and can also be too intense in other forms.

 

On the lighter side there is...

 

RED CLOVER

Red clover (Trifolium pratense) is an herb that belongs to the legume family, which also includes peas and beans. In herbal medicine, red clover is typically used to treat respiratory issues. 

contain many nutrients including calcium, chromium, magnesium, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, thiamine, and vitamin C.

 

The flower blossom is used to infuse as tea.

It is particularly good to help the nerves, and we have many of those in the eyes that aid and assist vision...so in this case, this plant helps much more than we think.

 

That being said, this herb is particularly strong in potassium out of all the nutrients. The role of potassium, in a nutshell, is to maintain intercellular fluid volume, and that is especially important to proper eye functions.

 

When combined with some of the herbs above, this herb is a powerhouse. Sure enough, it is not common knowledge that Red Clover can be useful like this.

 

Lastly, we have...

 

MUICLE

Justicia spicigera (muicle) is a plant that has been used from the pre-Hispanic era to contemporary times in Mexico. It has been used in the traditional medicine for healing diseases such as dysentery, diabetes, leukemia, and anemia.

 

The reason this herb has been used for the purposes of anemia is because of its heightened ability to support blood health. The blood vessels in our eyes and their quality affect the light absorption and other characteristics associated with rods and cones, when speaking about vital eye functions of course.

 

By providing strength to the blood vessels in the body, and providing absorbable iron that the body can actually use, it helps the eyes altogether. You see, iron is like a magnet, and it’s consistent presence allows for us to absorb other minerals accordingly as well. This is because iron helps break down abnormal formations that happen in blood clots and helps relieve inflammation that would otherwise cause eye strain and other signs of visual fatigue that could form as eyelid bumps.

 

Like Red Clover, this herb is not normally associated with eye health, that’s because it has not been studied too in depth by mainstream science. However, this herb in particular was given to me through a personal conversation with the great Dr. Sebi and myself, in the topic of eye health and the ability of iron to affect 40+ different conditions, including eye healing.
