Is there an alternative to eye glasses, lenses and operations? |
If you have been to the ANHS conferences, you have probably met Ruth, perhaps joining in her eye exercise sessions. She is a firm believer in eye exercises, with personal experience of remarkably improved eyesight.
It is easy to learn more - there are several books about eye exercises on the market now, just check your local or online bookstore. (There are few eye exercise therapists.) Here are some interesting books.|
But don't forget that improving your diet also can improve your eyesight visibly. As can a one-week fast, as you may have experienced. The cleaner body - the better eyesight. - Sugar and high carbohydrate diets are supposed to be especially problematic. - Diet together with eye exercises and sunshine may be the best answer.|
The Art of Seeing|
by Aldous Huxley
-Ever since opthalmology became a science, its practitioners have been obsessively occupied with only one aspect of the total complex process of seeing - the physiological. They have paid attention exclusively to eyes, not at all to the mind which makes use of the eyes to see with.
-My own case is in no way unique; thousands of other sufferes from defects of vision have benefited from following the simple rules, which we owe to Bates and his followers. To make this art more widely known is the final purpose of the present volume.
Normal healthy eyes without glasses
This is the name of a booklet, written by Ruth Schoenfeld in 1985. It can only be purchased from her.
- Wouldn't we all like to have normal, healthy eyes without glasses! Most of us can, unless we have an organic defect or degenerative disease, that is beyond help.
- My instructor was referred to me through a friend who had taken off her glasses under his guidance. She was bubbling over with enthusiasm, and I still am. I sincerely want to help as many people as possible through my book.
- By putting lenses on people at a point when they need a change in lifestyle, we are treating symptoms, not getting at cause. Defective vision can be retrained to normalize the eye muscles and restore the elasticity.
- When we have normal eyesight, where we can see our beautiful world clearly, we have priceless jewels in a shining crown.
Self-Healing Method |
This interesting method grew out of Meir Schneider's experience in overcoming his own congenital blindness as a teenager, using the Bates-method. He has produced a natural vision improvement seminar on audiotape, Meir Schneider's Miracle Eyesight Method (1997), and a videotape program, Yoga for Your Eyes.
