6 Must-Do's for Clear Vision & Healthier Eyes Instantly

6 Must-Do's for Clear Vision & Healthier Eyes Instantly
About a year and a half ago, someone who is a very close friend of
my family suffered a tragedy and permanently lost his eyesight.

Every time I see him, my heart just aches...and at the same time I am reminded what a precious gift vision is.
Unfortunately, eye health is not something most people think about very often.
Until something happens, that is.
I'm not just talking about a sudden tragedy. Conditions like glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration can all sneak up on you and severely affect your vision, many times robbing it permanently.
And while the thought of that can scare the you-know-what out of you, the good news is that there are some very effective ways you can take good care of your eyes and help preserve your precious gift of sight.
Here are the...
Six surefire ways to protect your eyes
1) Cover them
Protecting your eyes from UV radiation can decrease your risk of cataracts, which occur when proteins in the lens of your eye get damaged.
So on bright sunny days, be sure to protect your eyes by wearing sunglasses or a hat.

2) Move your body
Yup--your eyes are yet another great reason to stop being a couch potato.
Recent research has suggested that physical activity can lower your chance of developing cataracts by more than one-third, cut your risk of developing macular degeneration by more than half, and lower the increased eye pressure associated with glaucoma!
Put on the sneakers, grab the weights or racquet, hop on the treadmill, jump in the pool, start pedaling the bike or whatever your activity of choice is.
Just get off your keister and DO IT at least 3-4 days a week. Remember -- you need good vision to see how much nicer your body looks after you start moving it more. :-)

3) Avoid refined carbs
Refined carbohydrates (sugars, white flour, white rice, white bread, cookies, pastries, cakes, pasta, bagels, rolls, bakery goods, etc.) all quickly turn to sugar (glucose) once they're broken down by your body.
And having a regular diet of foods like these increases your risk of Type II diabetes.
You see, eating foods that create a regular onslaught of glucose in your blood day in and day out stresses your pancreas to produce enough insulin so your cells will absorb the excess glucose. Eventually it either can't keep up, or your cells start ignoring and resisting the insulin.
At that point the glucose builds up in your bloodstream and you develop Type II diabetes.
Diabetes can damage your eyes and lead to blindness. And people with Type II diabetes have a 72% increased risk of certain types of cataracts and are twice as likely to develop glaucoma as non-diabetics.

4) Eat sources of eye-healthy nutrients
Vitamins A, C, B6, B12 and folic acid are all crucial to eye health, as are zinc and the amino acid glutathione.
Here are some great food sources of each:
Vitamin A: Leafy greens (especially spinach), bell peppers, sweet potatoes, broccoli, tomatoes, asparagus, winter squash and carrots.
Vitamin C: Citrus fruits, tomatoes, bell peppers, strawberries, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, parsley, green beans, leafy greens.
Vitamin B6: Spinach, bell peppers, garlic, tuna, bananas, broccoli, watermelon, celery.
Vitamin B12: Shrimp, scallops, salmon, beef, lamb, cod, eggs.
Folic acid: Leafy greens (especially romaine lettuce), broccoli, beets, lentils, legumes, asparagus.
Zinc: Calf's liver, herring, spinach, beef, lamb, summer squash, leafy greens, sesame seeds.
Glutathione: Green leafy vegetables (especially broccoli, parsley and spinach).
Note that not only is it crucial to take in sources of these eye-loving nutrients, but it's also important that you're actually absorbing and using those nutrients.
And the Great Taste No Pain system can make that a breeze for you.
Great Taste No Pain shows you how to construct meals that not only taste divine, but are a breeze for your body to digest.  Not only will that help maximize your nutrient absorption, but you'll also be helping your body say goodbye to gas, bloating, constipation and acid reflux too!
And the GTNP recipe book is loaded with unbelievably delicious dishes featuring many of the eye-healthy foods listed above.

5)  Omega-3 essential fatty acids for proper eye functioning
The Omega-3 essential fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are absolutely vital for proper brain and eye functioning.
Unfortunately, because our food supply does not have nearly a fraction of the Omega-3 EFA it used to have (because of our large dependence on vegetables oils, processed foods and meat from grain-fed animals), most people are severely lacking this critical nutrient.
But that can be easily remedied by supplementation with a pharmaceutical-grade fish oil formula like VitalMega-3.
2 capsules a day gives you 2,000 mg of the purest medical grade Omega-3 fish oil available which includes 600 mg. of EPA and 400 mg. of DHA.
According to scientists at the International Society for the Study of Fatty Acids and Lipids (ISSFAL), the minimum daily intake is 650 mg/day of EPA and DHA combined for health maintenance and to prevent deficiency.
So with a whopping 1,000 mg. of EPA and DHA, VitalMega-3 over-delivers and ensures you're getting what you need for your precious eyes and more!

6) Supplement with Vitamin B12
Vitamin B12 has been shown to help protect against optic neuropathy, macular degeneration and cataracts, to name but a few.
Although there are many foods sources of Vitamin B12, eating those foods is only half the equation with this nutrient.
Absorbing it is the other half, and that can be tricky for these reasons:
First, your body's ability to produce the proteins needed for B12 absorption declines with age. So people age 50 or over are inherently at a greater risk.
Digestive conditions such as gastritis, IBS, Crohn's and colitis also affect the absorption and leave you running low.  And heaven knows, digestive problems are rampant in our society today--it's hard to find someone who DOESN'T have gut issues!
Antacids are a culprit, too.  Because they neutralize or reduce the acids in your stomach, when you use them you don't have enough acid to "break free" vitamin B12 from the proteins it's attached to.  So it sails on through your digestive tract, unabsorbed.
Plus, medication for Type II diabetes can also hamper B12 absorption, as well as alcohol use.
That's why supplementation is such a good idea for so many people.
And for a top shelf, highly absorbable formula, Hydroxaden 2.5 is the finest B12 spray available anywhere at any price.
Five sprays daily provides a full 2.5 mg. of B12 to energize your body and mind, encourage efficient metabolism and...
...Support eye health!

Your eyes are most definitely one of your most precious gifts, and certainly nothing to take lightly.
Do whatever you can to take care of them now and help encourage strong eye health and good vision as you age.
To your health,

PPS: Kathy's down 13 pounds and her blood pressure's down too!
Dear Sherry,
I am 67 years old. I just had a bout with diverticulitis, 2 years after the first bout, in spite of the fact I was doing everything the doctors told me to do.
I just finished the medications, and found you on line doing research to help myself. I too felt like I was dying. I ordered Great Taste No Pain right away.
I have been following your dietary program for just over one week. I am feeling so much better I can hardly believe it. I have no more reflux, I am sleeping better, I have no more abdominal discomfort, and I do have more energy already!
Also, I have Iost a total of 13 pounds, (5.5 since I started this program) and I have been trying to drop that weight for many years without success.
I have checked my blood pressure just to see if the weight Ioss is helping, and you know what? It is! My blood pressure is way down, even with the Prednisone, and I hope I will one day be able to eliminate medications that I have been on for years!
Thank you so much for giving hope to many of us who have been losing it for so long, and been so frustrated trying to do what the medical profession instructed us to do. Your approach makes things so simple that anyone can do it.
God Bless you in your efforts to educate people! I wish our schools; dietitians, physicians and others would do so well by us!
