Eye trouble

Most eye trouble is due to insufficient circulation and nutritional defi-

ciency in the eye muscles and the optic nerve; the optic nerve is one

of the most powerful nerves in the body and uses up to 30% of available

glucose (blood sugar); when blood sugar runs dry, all nerves must rely on

glycogen from the liver; any interruption in glycogen supply due to liver

dysfunction is often reflected in eye trouble; Chinese physicians always

look first to the liver when treating eye problems; a polluted bloodstream

can also cause serious eye problems.

Sunflower seeds: sunflower seeds are rich in organic vitamin A and other

vital eye nutrients; Dr Marsh Morrison has shown that 2 oz of raw

sunflower seeds per day, in conjunction with abstention from all

animal proteins, clears up many eye problems within two weeks.

Carrot, celery, endive, parsley juice: this blend provides potent

nourishment to the entire optic system, including nerves and muscles;

carrots provide organic vitamin A as carotene, endives are rich in other

nutrients with specific affinity for the eyes; 8 oz/4 oz/3 oz/2 oz, 1-2

pints daily.

Dandelion juice: rich in potassium, calcium, sodium, magnesium and iron,

raw dandelion juice alkalizes the bloodstream and provides a blend of

organic nutrients of specific benefit to the nervous system, of which the

optic nerve is the busiest component; mix half/half with carrot juice, 1-2

pints daily.

Spinach: raw spinach is another good source of organic vitamin A for the

optic system; also builds strong blood due to rich supplies of organic

iron, and this enhances circulation of oxygenated blood to the eyes.

Other beneficial foods: carrots; watercress; apricots; turnip greens;

calves liver.

Foods to avoid: deep fat fried foods; refined starch and sugar; hot

peppers; alcohol; mineral oil (as laxative).
