CHART FOR EYE HEALTH

We take so much for granted, very often come to realise when it’s a little too late, damage is done, & deterioration has deeply set in, so now is the time to take charge for improved quality of life! If ever you ask anyone what they would love most, they will almost indefinitely mention health as number one top of the list. With health we can climb mountains, swim across oceans, help others, find love, and obtain wealth.

We consume food at least three times a day on average, why not make that fuel count and ‘nutrify’ each and every single organ and living cell, as we have one body, one life, lets make it count.

Consuming healthy well balanced meals from all food groups (fruit, veg, nuts, seeds, legumes, grains, herbs, spice, edible roots & flowers), as well as eating from rainbow colours (white, yellow, orange, red, green, red, blue, purple, black, brown), daily sunshine D,  exercise, and relaxation leads to good health.

In today’s world where toxins are rife, they linger in the air that we breathe, swim in our waters, and leach into our depleted poisoned soils, it’s imperative that we start to heal ourselves with whole vegan foods, in order to detoxify our bodies & our minds from the daily garbage, grunge, heavy toxic metals, pollutants, and the violence, and start cleaning up and taking good care of our ecosystems. Health starts on our plates, as does peace.

Our eyes do have muscles which we often forget about so exercising those muscles daily is just as important as exercising other parts of our bodies in order to keep them in shape.  We can start by rolling our eyes around slowly to the left, to the right. Then in figures of eight, then gently up and down. We can also focus on something far off in the distance, covering one eye at a time and then focusing with both. We can then focus on something close by and repeat same method. In tandem  nutrify eyes through consumption of healthy foods that help stop deterioration, cataracts, night blindness & other disorders & diseases. Below are some suggestions of vitamins and minerals that you may require for good eye health. We are certainly spoilt for healthy food choice.
