SEEING THE NEW YEAR AT NEARLY 20/20!
I am serious.
This is wonderful place to begin a new year!
This week I drove myself to the eye Dr.
By the time I got there I could hardly see. I WAS NOT in a good mood. My head was killing me, my eyes were killing me. I just couldn't focus.
I suspected my contact lenses were giving me problems. I was right.
Earlier, I noticed the cross road signs at night were looking something like swastikas and I wondered when they started making signs like that?! But as I got closer, the sign wasn't the problem. Hmm.....
One day I drove into Boise and noticed that on top of the mountains I could see individual trees. That's weird. So I just stopped wearing the lenses much because they weren't comfortable.
But thinking this wasn't a good idea, I headed to the Dr.
When the Dr. came into the room, I said, "Hello, get these lenses out."
Whoa, not so fast! We had to test!
With one of the tests, he asks if I can read any of the three lines. Yep, can read the top line, and pretty much the second line and if I squint I can make out the last line.
After he did a few tests, the Dr. made the announcement,
"You just keep getting better and better. You have had a 50% improvement in your vision since I saw you. Wow."
I saw him last in November '19, 2.5 months ago.
At that time he said I could probably use a lesser prescription in the right eye, but thought all would be well at my -1.00 prescription.
Per the reading test, the top line is what you need to be able to read to drive without corrective lenses! And the third line is 20/20 vision!
I NO LONGER need corrective lenses to drive. WOW!
The last line is 20/20. SHOCKING! I CAN see 20/20 in 2020, if I squint!
My journey started with -1.75 with a light bifocal correction.
I am now -.5 and no bifocal correction.
I am not something special, if I can improve so can anyone else who decides they would want to.
Someone who says it can't be done should not be allowed to interrupt someone who is doing it.
So what have I done?
Removed any energy/toxicity blockages from eyes.
And it isn't hard or I wouldn't be doing it.
Here are the eye exercises:
By Jack West
Laying on back. Do not move head.
Follow as directed in series of 5 times for each exercise
1. Rotate the eyes clock wise 5X
Squeeze eyes tight till relaxed, count to 10
2. Rotate the eyes counter clockwise 5X
Squeeze eyes tight…count..also use some deep breaths.
3. Look straight across, FEEL the stretch. Left to right 5 X
4.Make Xs with eyes.
From upper left to right shoulder, feel the stretch.
Then upper right to left shoulder, feel the stretch.
Do these movements 10 x, making 5 large Xs.
Occasionally, start from the bottom and go to the top.
5. Then look up over head and down to toes, focus on the toes, 5 Xs.
Do this 2 times a day at the minimum.
I figure I was laying down before I went to sleep and before I got up so I could do these exercises. Worked for me! Do once more a day if possible.
Then I found another one I added since November:
The Thumb Focus Exercise
Hold your thumb out at arms length, shoulder high.
Focus on your thumbnail as you slowly bring the thumb toward your nose.
Hold for a second or two and then extend the arm again still focusing on the thumbnail. Do this 5 times.
Squeeze eyes and relax.
Do at least once a day, or twice if you feel inclined.
Supplements reported to help eyesight:
Calcium, citrate 400 mg
Omega 3 fish oil, 1000 U
Vit C 1000 mg, minimum
Vit E 400 u
Gelatin, 1 capsule/day
Glucosomine/Chondroitin, 1 capsule a day
Eye Brite formula, 2 droppers or 2 capsules at night, 1 month. This is a Dr. Christopher product.
Iodine, be sure you are getting adequate Iodine supplementation. This is the ONE thing I had changed in my diet over the last 4 months.
Foods which may improve eyesight:
Red and yellow peppers
Sweet Black Cherries
I do a smoothie most every day, mine is usually power greens with a little fruit, liquid minerals added, whey protein and sometimes yogurt.
This smoothie is purported to help with eyes also:
For one month do the following daily:
Green smoothie with spinach, and chard if you like
1/4 c blue berries
1/4 c sweet black cherries
1/4 c. black berries
And eat 8 whole pecans.
It is important to remove toxins from the body as well as addressing any other imbalances. Body Code is great for this!
Also, to help clear congestion in the eyes, this is a great treatment! I tell people they will be shocked at how bright their vision is after this treatment:
Castor Oil Treatment.
Use Hexane free, cold pressed and as organic as possible Castor oil. Palma Christie is a good brand. Use the filtered one, not the one with particles in it.
For 3 nights, put one drop of castor oil in each eye before retiring.
Wait one week and repeat.
This may need to be repeated, depends on the individual.
And lastly, an eye wash!
This is great for strengthening the eyes, clearing and healing.
This treatment is also used for cataracts treatment.
Measure out 2 eye cups full of water, distilled or purified.
Add 2 drops Dr. Christopher's Eye Brite tincture and let set for a few minutes to bleed off any alcohol.
Fill cup with solution. Tilt head forward and press eye cup over eye.
Raise head and blink 10 times.
Lower head for break.
Raise head again and blink 10 times.
Lower head and repeat one last time.
Discard water, rinse cup and repeat on other eye. You may increase dosage of Eye Brite drops as needed.
Do for one week and then we will recheck for a repeat.
There is nothing hard about this. It may seem like a lot, but you eat anyway, so might as well put in some healing foods.
You lie down, you can exercise those eyes a couple of times a day. It takes only a few minutes.
If you want more detailed help, please set up and appointment. We can discuss a personalized program and specific nutrients and also take care of any blockages that may prevent healing.
Seeing IS BELIEVING!
Here's to seeing 20/20 in 2020!
May your path be clear and clearly seen.
I am NOT a Dr. If you have other questions, see your Dr.
I am a regular person who used to have -1.75 vision and now has -.5 and hopes others can improve also.

And we are almost into summer...well the calendar says we should be.
Hope your weather is cooperating.
So what are some of your summer plans? Any hikes? Are the knees holding you back?
I recently met with some 'almost' seniors and was a bit taken back by how many were dealing with knee pain. Yuck.
I consider most pain optional and I personally like to opt out.
I have addressed this several times, but whenever I experience something positive, I like to share. I want everyone to be as happy and healthy as possible.
What can be some of the causes?
Misalignment of the pelvis
Misalignment of the vertebrae.
Adrenal issues can affect the left knee.
Gall Bladder can affect the right knee.
Energy blockages in the knees.
Lack of proper supplements.
Lack of exercise.
I think this is the short list, I am sure there is more.
It will be a bit different for different people.
Body Code work can help solve the puzzle as to why there is pain.
Then we can decide how to deal with it.
There are supplements we can choose from.
Glucosamine/chondroitin helps build tissue.
Gelatin will also help build tissue.
Vit C is a must. It can be a natural anti-inflammatory as well as a catalyst for healing.
And one I have come across lately is the Omega 3. Not only is it good for bones, but is also good for tissue and joints.
So I started taking an Omega 3 fish oil from the North Atlantic. I finally did a breakdown on my own nutritional needs and thought this would help in some of the stuff I was trying to address, such as eyes, hair etc.
After the first month, that little annoying knee irritation seemed to be not so annoying. The knees weren't really sore, just tender at times.
After month number two, I very seldom noticed the knees. Okay. Stairs? Hmm.... not much problem.
After month number three, I forgot about the knees.
I have worked for sometime in cartilage rebuilding with gelatin, glucosamine and chondroitin, Vit C and minerals, just general good supplements. And I was taking an EFA, Essential Fatty Acid, complex with flax seed, borage and some fish oil. Apparently, not enough fish oil for what I was needing.
When we look at oils, traditionally we use Flax for women and Fish for men. These have the precursors in the oils for hormone production. I would suggest testing to see which your body is in need of. Obviously, it is not a 'one size fits all' situation.
OMEGA 3 FISH OIL.
What can it help? Ready for the novel?
This is absolutely necessary when pregnant for the developing child's
ADHD? You can get bubble gum flavored fish oil for children...and it
is shockingly good!
Alzheimers or dementia issues? Yep... this and maybe some Vit E.
Autism? This requires some definite helps. An evaluation between Cod
Liver oil or Omega 3 should be considered.
Blood factors, lowering triglycerides.
Also will thin the blood, do not take if you are on blood thinners. This will
be between you and your Dr.
Insulin factors, helps with diabetics
Joint and bone health, actually can boost the calcium levels in the bones.
Liver, helps with that fatty liver disease.
Skin, lots of nice moisture!
And that is a partial list.
When rebuilding, do not expect to have over-night results. We are so used to having everything quickly we become impatient. So guys, men, you are notorious for this! You cannot take this for three days and give up because you didn't see any improvement. Go for three weeks and we can talk.
How much? Again, more is not always better.
Two capsules day, is a good start. If your working with the brain, try doing one of these capsules at night as this is when the body does repairs. You will be giving building materials at the right time.
For children, we can work with 1/2 tsp.
And after healing has occurred, we can go to maintenance doses of supplements. And remember, the body IS DESIGNED to heal!
If in doubt, don't!
Yes, you can be allergic to something here. That can be addressed if you feel this is the case. We can check.
If you're not sure about this or any supplement, get some good advice.
And check with your healthcare provider if you are on some prescription medications.
Okay! See you on the trail!

ANTI-AGING, we're talking about the skin this time!
I am all for it...naturally of course.
I have several daughters. I spent some time with them this last week and we started talking about skin, wrinkles, premature aging and the rest. The fact is, we ARE going to age, thankfully so as the alternative isn't all that great. The goal here would be to do it in the least painful way possible.
For my age, and I am eternally 59 at this point, I have pretty good skin. So because my daughters are interested in MORE anti-aging info, I thought to share some of what is out there, at least what I have available right now. There is always more to know, this by no means is everything! No one knows everything!
These are just things which have come across my radar in the past few years.
I occasionally have used very expensive products, but I find you don't need the most expensive products for good results. And there is also the nutritional factors here. What supplements does one use for warding off extra aging? Like I said, this is what is on my screen right now. It is NOT everything, I am sure.
Here we go!
I once read that one symptom of B 6 Vitamin deficiency was wrinkling around the mouth. Enough said! It isn't going to hurt to take a good brand of B-50 or B-100 complex. These are usually very balanced and you won't be getting too much of one or the other. B Vitamins are water soluble, so don't be afraid of getting too much, your kidneys will take out what you don't need. Beef, poultry, fish, garlic and greens are good sources of B 6 also.
This converts to Vit A in the body. This is very much anti-wrinkling. Because it is water soluble, you can take it with very little fear of overdosing. Your kidneys will eliminate the excess. I take 50,000 u a day of this, you can use up to 75,000 a day before you start overdosing. (And this is also VERY good for your eyes!)
Vitamin C is great for many things. It also generates rapid cell repair. This is good for the skin. You may want to add 1000 mg a day of this to your diet also.
And guess what else builds collagen? Yep... old fashioned gelatin. It is marvelous for the joints, the eyes, the hair, the nails AND even the SKIN! So how much do I use?
Well, I use those packets from the grocery store and use one of those a day. I just blend it into my smoothie. It doesn't taste. After a few months, you may find you can maintain with 3-4 packets a week. I have one daughter who gets her gelatin in bulk from health food source on line. In that case she takes 1 tablespoon a day. (And this is marvelous if you have some joint pain!)
These also are some of the building blocks of collagen. And collagen keeps the skin elastic and full. You may take a couple of these a day. You may end up not needing as much later just to maintain. (Also very good for your joints!)
These are Essential Fatty Acids. Flaxseed is very good for women, it is a precursor to estrogen. Fish oil for men, flax for women.
Depending again on your diet, 1000 u a day is a good start.
Yep, we want those balanced. Some breakouts can be attributed to estrogen imbalance.
My mother-in-law, RIP, had great looking skin. Her secret she said was to, "Moisturize, moisturize, MOISTURIZE!" I use a product called Dermae. It has Vit A in it among other natural ingredients.
If there is a shortage of minerals in the diet, this can also affect the skin. It is HIGHLY SUGGESTED you get a good mineral supplement.
It is the number one element to enhance the skin. I had an esthetician(skin specialist) tell me she could tell who drinks enough water and who didn't by how wrinkled their skin was. I immediately started drinking more water! You need to be drinking about half your weight in ounces. You weigh 150 lbs, you drink 75 ounces of water a day. And this needs to be GOOD water. For sure it should be filtered in some way. And you need to be careful of bottled water, sometimes they have fluoride added and you don't want that. We can go into that more in another blog.
Then one of the products I really like is ASEA GEL. It really nourishes the cell structure of the skin. I use it at night.
Here is one 'interesting' idea:
Yep. It is purported to shrink tissue. So somebody somewhere decided to try it for the wrinkles on the face and had some great results with it. But there is one thing you might note, the ointment which will work the best for this comes from Canada. They have the yeast extract and shark liver oil which are some of the key ingredients for success.
This is added to many skin formulas. It is to help collagen formulation. I think there are some valuable applications with this. It is probably worth a try.
No doubt there are some things here which some gals will not be able to take or use as they, "Break me out!" Well, I wouldn't do that either! But let me remind you, this can be treated! If you are allergic or intolerant, you can always have a session to address that.
If you have questions about dosages, we can address that also.
I did some work for a gal who had a 'pregnancy mask' on part of her face. She was now 40 and wanted to know if I could work on it for her. Frankly, I was a bit skeptical and could not guarantee results. But we did some releases and about 10 months later her son noticed her face and asked what happened. Now without makeup, the dark mask around her face was gone. Well, that was inspirational! So having some darkness on both sides of my neck, I found I had a reason for them and did some releases. Are they gone? No, it hasn't been 10 months yet...BUT! They now are getting very molted looking, breaking up I guess you would say. So now I watch and wait. Many times there are toxicities in the skin which need to be addressed, some are related to gland toxicities. Thankfully, we can address those also.
I HIGHLY suggest any supplements you take are of a good quality. Cheap isn't always the best, and also at times when you buy the most expensive you're paying for packaging. Just use caution, and get some suggestions.
Right now I am researching which oils may be of benefit to the skin. So there will more coming on that. There just always is so much more to know!
We are going to age. We can do it well. But please remember, the best thing about your face will ALWAYS be your SMILE!
"Put a smile on your kisser and someone may put a kiss on your smiler!"
As always, if you have concerns, please contact your preferred health care provider.

I recently worked with a client who is considering some eye enhancement surgery. I suggested she start working on her eyes.
I removed the energy blockages involving her eyes, made suggestions about supplements and sent her the eye exercises.
Her next visit to the eye Dr., they were both a little surprised when he announced her stigmatism was gone! This is a 40 year old woman with 2 children.
Isn't it wonderful that there are options for improving our lives?!
THE STEPS TO IMPROVING THE EYES/VISIION:
1. We do an EYE EVALUATION checking for blockages and removing what we find.
2. Then SUPPLEMENT:
Herbal eyebright formula, 2 droppers a day.
Omega's 3 and 6 (flax seed oil)
And now I am suggesting adding some gelatin to the diet. Gelatin is the building block of the collagen of the eyes, this is the vitreous matter in the eyeball. p.s. It is also good for the skin! But that is the next blog!
3. The EYE EXERCISES are available in another blog post,I am not believing my EYES! BIG IMPROVEMENT!!
You can start today to get your eyes to a healthier place! And yes, I am still bifocal free.
Right now, for December, I am offering $10 off the normal price of a $60 session for an adult. You can purchase as many of these as you would like and we will schedule you appointments as close or as far out as you need.
Have yourself a Merry little Christmas!

Yes, it has been a LONG time between blogs. I completed a move to a new location, office is mostly set up and I can find my clothes and my bedroom! Great Progress!!!! So now... hopefully I am getting back on track.
Now... onto some really exciting info!
MY EYES!!!!Three (3!!!!) LESSENED prescriptions later!
Because of an eye issue a while back, I blogged about it, I have been conscious about good eye health protocol. Because I am also usually in a hurry and busy, I don't have a lot of patience with looongg programs. What ever I do has to be doable, quick and not too difficult. AND... IT MUST WORK!
I WAS wearing corrective contact lenses, WITH a bifocal enhancement. So a few months ago I went to the eye Dr. because I was getting headaches. I rarely have a headache and it usually is eye related if I do.
He lessened the prescription. Ahhh.... lots better!
I am back 2 weeks later, more headaches. Relief, prescription lessened.
Then a week or so ago, I had trouble focusing, somewhat blurry vision with a horrible headache.
I didn't have time to go in, so I just dealt with a kinda double vision deal when I wore my lenses, or didn't wear the lenses, unless driving. All the letters had a shadow with them. Hmm... I made an appointment and went today. Everything was going along okay.... until the aid gave me a new set of contacts to put in before the Dr. came in. WOWZER! Welcome to the world of headaches!
By the time the Dr. came in, I just wanted the lenses out. Tried out another set of lighter lenses, still had some double vision, tried out another set. Not better yet. And then the magic card.
"Can you read anything on this card?" he asks.
"Yeah, what do you want me to read?" I reply
So I read something. The Dr. grabs the card and announces that I don't need the bifocals! So I got lenses WITHOUT bifocal correction, and a lighter prescription and WHAAA! LAAA! I can see again.... AND NO HEADACHES!
So let's see, I started out at -1.75 with light bifocal correction.
Went to -1.50 with light bifocal correction.
Went to a lighter one yet... and today I end up with -1.00 and NO bifocal correction. After that many lenses in my eyes, I have some very tired eyes. But I am feeling pretty optimistic about this eye stuff!
So what started this revolution? Wish I could tell you what I did! (tease! Okay...not funny. Sorry ;-) ....)
Soooo.... I started out with energy work on my eyes. Interestingly, I found grief as a trapped emotion. Makes sense, when you grieve you might cry. I have had plenty of opportunity for that. And there were some other things also.
But there is something more to this....Recently, I came across a site by Jack West, a fellow I thought was only into archeology.. I hadn't realized he was very much into holistic health. I listened to his lecture. He has since passed, but was a great grandfather and had never worn or needed glasses. After my eye issues, I found this intriguing. And he then explained his program. He had been promised by a Dr. he would never need glasses if he did several simple eye exercises every day. Okay, I'll buy... how simple? It would have to be simple if I were to get involved. It was. I combined this with Dr. Christopher's Eye Bright, used as a wash and as a tincture.
I was already taking some calcium, Vit D, Vit A, (as beta carotene),EFAs and minerals, so I didn't feel to change anything nutritionally.
So here you go! EYE EXERCISES by Jack West.
Lying down, do this at least two times a day. I know, I know... but the two times I would be lying down would be before I go to sleep and before I get out of bed. Okay... this is very doable! I could do it.
Protocol of EXERCISE:
Lying on back,
1. rotate the eyes in a big clockwise circle 5 times. Then squeeze eyes tight. Slow methodical movements, don't rush.
2. Now, roll the eyes counter clockwise 5 times and squeeze.
3. Look side to side, way over each way 5 times, side to side and back is 1. Squeeze eyes tight.
4. Make 5 LARGE X's with eyes, looking to upper left corner then down to opposite right shoulder, upper right, then down to opposite left shoulder, 5Xs. Squeeze.
5. Look way up high, over your head, then down to your toes. You probably won't see your toes and that is okay. Do this up and down 5 times. Squeeze.
That completes the eye exercises. It is suggested you do this 2-3 times a day or when your eyes are tired. I have at times just laid my head back and done them.
As I stated, I take 2 droppers full of Eye Bright once a day.
I do an eyebright wash with an eye cup and a few drops of eye bright in water before I go to bed. And I take my regular supplements. I made sure there weren't any other blockages.
Will it work for you? We won't know until you try. It doesn't hurt, is isn't expensive,(well discounting prescription changes) and it isn't hard.
And yes, I would suggest energy work on the eyes, should you feel so inclined. Many things can be improved when we remove the blockages preventing healing. I have released toxicities and various energies from the eyes. It is really a good idea to get an evaluation.
Here's looking at you! And thankfully seeing only ONE of you!!! Glad that is over. Crazy times!
Have a great week. Don't be afraid to exercise your eyes. God helps those who help themselves. Please consider helping yourself get to a better place.

Well, just another week of fun and games here!
I have always been somewhat prideful relative to my eyesight. I am over 50 and have only recently gone to a bifocal contact lens.
My eye Dr. would say, "I don't get it... you have the eyes of a 40 year old!" Of course that was a few visits back. Next visit, "Your eyes are in better shape than mine!" I would smile, he is somewhat younger than I am... Oh, I was doing 'most' all the good stuff for eyes.
Then last Thursday I noticed funny little specks. hmm.... Then I noticed some junky blackish stuff in my line of vision. So I cleaned off my sunglasses. Didn't help much. Then the junky stuff got to be more obnoxious. And I noticed it was in the left eye. hmm..... So I thought,"I can be brave and treat this or I can be wise and get an opinion." I went for wise.
Friday I called my eye Dr. I had a cordial visit with the office staff. They informed me the Dr. was on vacation for 2 weeks. He is wonderful and I knew he needed a vacation and was very happy he was taking one. But....
So I asked who was on call and explained the situation. The office made the call for me and set up my appt.
So I go to the on call eye Dr. to get the news.
Well, the analysis could be better! I had news I had to get used to. First of all.... he told me... I WAS AGING! I wasn't sure we could be friends at that point. Did he not know who he was talking to???
So after my initial denial, he educated me.
As we age, the vitreous matter in the eyeball tends to become more liquid like. It will pull away from the tissue lining the interior or the eye.
As it does so, it may pull on this tissue and cause tearing. This tearing will be the torn retina or another area of bleeding on the inside of they eye. This is dangerous and should be addressed.
He assured me I had done the right thing by coming in.
After the dilation of the pupil and a thorough examination he informed me there was no tearing and what was happening was the fluid had captured some extra cells and matter and that what was causing the strange flecks in my vision. These flecks were floaters on steroids! That was the chunky black, smeary stuff. Then it seemed I was looking at cells through a microscope, very small and doughnut shaped stuff rolling around. He told me everything would settle down within the month. WHEW!!!!! He also told me my eyes were very healthy and looked very good. Well, that is more like it!
And then the creme de la creme.... I was informed I had the beginning of a cataract. He would see me again in 5 to 10 years. WHAAATTT???
So much humility handed out in one afternoon is tough to take!
All the way home I laid out my plan of action.
The first thing I would do is any releases of negative energy that would prevent healing. I did find one.
Eye supplements are A, C and E.
I will do 1000 mg of C.
Start out with 400 IU of Vit E. You can work your way up to 800 IU and then 1000 IU if you desire. You graduate up because you don't want to raise your blood pressure. It seems the pressure will often rise for some people if there is a sudden change in the Vit E level.
I have been taking Vit. A for years. It helps with vision and immunity... as well slowing down wrinkling. I use the beta carotene version as it is water soluble and will not build up in the body. I take 50,000 units a day. You can take up 65,000 before you have to worry about overdosing.
For some time I have been recommending Dr. Christopher's Herbal Eye Bright formula and once in a while I would seriously get into a program.
Well, I am serious now!
So I use the Eye Bright tincture daily. 2 droppers full a day. Then I use it as an eye wash. There have been some pretty miraculous things happen from using this. Dr. Christopher documented patients of his who regained vision and REDUCED their cataracts. Say no more... I am all over this!
How do you do the eye wash? Well, find an elusive eye wash cup at a good herb shop or old fashioned drug store. These are not easy to find. I have had some clients who use a small plastic bottle lid and just squeeze into a shape to fit against the eye. Then use about 2 tbl. warm distilled water and drop 3-5 drops of the Herbal Eye Bright Tincture into the water. Let this sit for 5-10 minutes to dissipate the alcohol. Pour some of the water into the eye cup for the wash. Lean head forward and place cup up to eye. Hold head slightly back and blink several times. put head down, for a break and then repeat 2 more times. Clean cup repeat for other eye using the water left. Yes.. there is cayenne in this and it does sting a little bit. I have had far worse with soap in my eyes. You will eventually not notice any stinging, but you can start out slowly with only 3 drops and build up.
I have also had clients who will place a drop on the eye lid and not use the eye wash. I really do like the eye wash myself. But you will get results either way.
I also got serious about my minerals. I go for 6 days of mineral/vit supplements taking Sunday off. Check the Tangy Tangerine.
I just added the ASEA to my regime by spraying my face.
And now the game begins... You can treat symptoms all you want and get some quick results. Healing on the other hand is slower.
Have a great week!
And don't take that vision for granted! It is a great blessing.
Choose good health!
