Is your eyesight slowly but surely failing due to strain, natural aging or not wearing sunglasses? If you are looking for a way to improve your vision then you might want to try drinking raw juices and doing eye exercises every day. If you are myopic, suffer from night blindness or have an eye disease, then this hybrid of two therapies might improve your vision, slow down its degradation or at the very least prevent it from getting worse.
How to Improve Your Eyesight By Drinking Juices
The very first thing you should do is purchase a functional juicer that is easy to clean. You can buy them nowadays or about 100 dollars. You can also buy powerful blenders that reduce fruits and vegetables to a drinkable pulp. The idea is to take advantage of the many antioxidants and high vitamin contents in freshly macerated fruit and vegetable juice by drinking them twice a day. Be sure that any produce that you use is organic to prevent the possibility of drinking pesticides along with your healing nutrients.
If you prefer to make yourself a healing fruit cocktail to healthy eyes, then consider blending together any of the following: watermelon, oranges, cherries, blueberries, goji berries, acai berries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, lingonberries, Indian gooseberries, mangosteens, pomegranates, melons of all kind, apricots, plums and apples.
If a savoury juice is more your style then try making a “vision power” cocktail out of any of the following: carrots, spinach, beets, green leafy lettuce, kale, onions, garlic, rosemary, oregano, thyme, and tomato.
A wonderful healing smoothie or the eyes is simply a blend of ice, canned pumpkin, and milk. The pumpkin is rich in A and everything else the eye needs and the milk has protein, all of the B vitamins and Vitamin D. You can substitute kefir, yogurt, almond milk, coconut milk or coconut water for the canned pumpkin if you like.
Eye Exercises for Better Vision
The eye exercises that you should do every day need not be that complicated. A simple, but effective one is to take your arm and extend your forefinger. Keep your eyes on your finger as you draw it back so that your forefinger tip is touching your nose. Do this five times or so to increase depth perception and improve your ability to focus.
Another great eye exercise to do every day – just simply close your eyes and rotate your eyeballs. Rotate them clockwise in a circle five times and then do the same thing with both eyes in the opposite (counter-clockwise) direction.
Give your eyes a brief workout by forcing them to focus on an object intently and then let your vision relax so that everything goes out of focus for twenty seconds. Do this five times over and over again for best results.
If you are over age forty and wondering how to improve eyesight it may take a little longer for you to see effects from your juicing and exercises efforts as you might be suffering from hardening of the eye lens. This can make it more difficult to retrain the eye to see and other kinds of vision correction may be necessary to help you see better. However, you should still keep drinking juices to improve the circulation and repair tissues and keep doing basic vision correction exercises you might see a bit of general improvement in your vision.
