Exercises Close both the eyes very tightly by shutting the lids firmly. Open them suddenly which allows you to feel the stretch. Once open arch your brows and stretch your face. Repeat this several times a day. Look as far as possible and inhale then look down as far as possible and exhale. Blink your eyes more than dozen times. Do the same procedure by turning to your left and right then diagonally up to left, down to right, up to right and down to left followed by rapid blinking. Rotate your eyes in all the directions. Slowly and steadily concentrate one eye at a time. Do this exercise more than dozen times and try doing this with your eyes shut. By using palming which can be stated as a revised version of the thousand-year-old yoga tradition known was Hatha Yoga. It relieves strain and stress from your mind and eyes which needs the required break. For this you have to warm your hands by rubbing them together vigorously. Once it’s warm cover the eye without touching the eyelids. This relaxes the nerves and helps in blood circulation. You can also try sunning which means to use sun’s light for your eyes. Move your head from side to side for the heat to benefit the eyes. After a while try stretching the eyes to allow more sunlight to your eyes. Directly looking at the sun is never good. It is great method to reduce light sensitivity. Perform Netra Basti which is bathing your eyes with clarified butter to reduce eye strain and to improve eyesight. Vision-corrective eye exercises work very well in fully restoring ones vision (or serve as a means of preventative maintenance), and there are a tonn of different eye exercises out there to help your eyesight. However, there’s another, very important, point to know, understand and remember, which is that VISION-CORRECTIVE EYE EXERCISES DO NOT WORK BY THEMSELVES. As soon as you start doing them purely mechanically, you might as well give up right away, because it’ll take you so long that you won’t be able to stand it, and it’s ineffective and an unnecessary waste of time. This mistake alone is one that is making way too many people give up on it early, after seeing no results! In order to throw away your glasses forever, one needs to understand the principles of mind work – i.e. that what we think affects how we see, and know how to apply them in the most efficient way, then that really starts doing wonders! Another thing one needs to understand is that one needs to relax ones eye muscles. It’s really crucial to success, as THAT is what sets the boundary between success and failure for people – the time that the restoration process will take. We need to look after our eyes on a regular bases, *just as we look after any other part of our body*. For me, finding out about vision-corrective eye exercises and doing them was like a miracle, because I’ve actually managed to fully restore my eyesight that way! I’ve followed a russian course myself, which is a course for general self-healing, and that helped me restore my eyesight fairly quickly, which I’m *really* happy about! I’ve actually noticed a load of other stuff starting to happen once I’ve restored my vision, like my concentration level went up *enormously*, for example. I can really see it, and, believe me, it helps a TONNE in anything that you do. Very powerful stuff, the effectiveness of which is not to be underestimated. Vision-corrective eye exercises (coupled with mind work) work very well, when done correctly. I’ve even created my own step-by-step guide (http://cureyoureyes.com/blog), detailing the exact steps I took, which I was giving away at first, and now am selling as suggested by friends. And the really cool thing is that they are so simple, they only take 30 mins a day, 4 days a week! E.g. when you work with a pc, read a book, or when you are doing anything else that requires you to stare at it for a long time, especially close up, you need look around the room, look into the distance now and again. If you do that, your eyesight will NOT get worse. Otherwise, it WILL – it’s only normal, only common sense. It took me a great amount of time to learn and understand all this (because I wanted to understand more), but now that I know this, I’ll never let my eyesight deteriorate ever again. As soon as it deteriorating (now probably not earlier than when I’m well over 40 – I hope time won’t go too quickly!!), I know *exactly* what to do. If you do start noticing your eyesight worsening, then you can start doing more exercises – move your eyes up, down, left, right, look onto your nose etc – do this for a couple of mins once every hour or so, then close your eyes and relax. If you put your hands over your face, so that your eyes are right in the middle of your palms, with no light getting through, and stay like this for a minimum of 3 mins, then your eyes will relax and you’ll see a huge improvement for a moment – every day you’ll notice a slight improvement in your vision, right until the moment when you fully restore it. Although all of us are well aware of all the medicinal values and beauty care that honey bestows for human body, it has been recently learnt that honey works magic for eyes, by protecting eyes and improving eyesight. Although the easiest manner to take advantage of honey is to include it as part of one’s regular diet, Perry Kharpuri, a Shillong-based researcher, advices a mix of two teaspoons of honey with carrot juice, which, on regular consumption, improves eye sight and cures watery eyes. This is believed to be an excellent remedy for people working for long hours before the computer. Also, Amla (Indian gooseberry), taken with honey, apart from improving eye sight helps in treatment of conjunctivitis and glaucoma, reducing intraocular tension in an effective manner. When suffering from cold, cough or chest congestion, add two teaspoons of honey with an equal quantity of ginger juice, and consume often. This although, one of the oldest, is also one of the most popular remedies followed by millions of Indians. Another honey remedy is to add a spoon of fresh honey to juice of half a lemon in a glass of lukewarm water, as a cure for hyperacidity, obesity and constipation. Homeopath, Swapan Debnath, agrees that honey also helps in controlling BP. Two teaspoons of honey, when mixed with a teaspoon of garlic juice, and consumed regularly, helps tackle the problem to a certain extent. As per research conducted by Madeep Kaur of Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Samrala, Punjab, a mixture of honey, ginger juice and black pepper powder mixed in equal quantities and consumed thrice a day, helps relieve symptoms of Asthma. In short, consuming one teaspoon of honey a day helps lead a long healthy life, states Madeep Kaur in her report. However, a work of caution to be followed is that honey should not be heated or exposed to high temperature. Also honey should never be taken with hot and spicy food and fermented beverages such as rum, brandy or whisky, as the nectar of various flowers included in honey, could get its poisonous properties enhanced when mixed with hot and spicy foods, which could at times prove to be fatal.
