Heathy Eyes is Healthy Eating
The good news is that there are no foods that are harmful for your eyes. But in the long run to keep your eyes healthy you need to eat healthily as part of your routine. Most foods don’t directly affect your eyesight at all, although foods with the right vitamins and minerals are helpful. Recent studies show that vitamins of the antioxidant group can prevent, or at least slow down, age-related conditions of the eyes, like macular degeneration and the development of cataracts. Read more about antioxidants. The very best plant for your eye health is curly kale. If you have eye problems eat plenty of kale; if you have serious eye problems juice kale with carrots and billberry. Kale is the best natural source of lutein. Lower strength sources are spinach, peas, zuccini and sprouts. L-caritine has been found to be important in preventing and treating cateracts. The best natural source is beef (very high value); lower sources of L-carnitine are milk, cod, chicken, cheese.
Herbal Eye Drops
Our herbal eye drops are to be used in an eye bath (which we supply). This method of treating the eyes allows the amazing herbs for eye health to work on all parts of the external eye and eye itself. That is, it can help cateracts that are forming (knocked back by azulene blue in chamomile in the drops. conjunctivitis (red eye), blepharitis (eyelid eczema), stys (hordeolum, chalazion cyst) (sebaceous gland infection on the eyelid – usually staphylococcus), eye lashes loss, arcus senislis (a thin white, opaque ring around the edge of the cornea due to metabolic issues in the elderly – so change your diet to keto low carb), dry eye, tear duct cleansing, eyelid inflamation, zanthelasma (yellow nodules on the eyelids). Our herbal eye drops give a complete healing support for the eyes. Just a few drops of our Eye Drops into an eye bath of warm water does the trick. Use daily or twice daily for a stronger action. Find our eye drops in our web store.
Please note that if you want to treat CATARACTS we have specific EyeDrops for an EyeBath for this condition. When you order from the store specify that you want it for CATARACTS so we can send you the right drops!
The general eye drops are for whole eye health including iritis, glaucoma, cataracts, blepharitis, conjunctivitis, styes, floaters – clearing and healing.
Alan’s answer: Yes, you’re right Gemma. The SeeMore Tonic, the herbal eye drops, the ABC, your diet, vit A veggies, eye exercises and protecting them from harsh light, smoke and dust, all contribute to keeping your eyesight healthy. There is a natural deterioration as we age, so the more we think about our eye health the better for the long term. They are so precious and too often overlooked. Kind regards, Alan
Vitamins C, A and E, folic acid, selenium and zinc are definitely the most beneficial for the health of your eyes. The effects of the other vitamins and minerals aren’t determined yet, but it seems likely that they affect your eyesight as well. A wide range of vits, minerals and elements are essential for health, find out about a herbal powder that has hundreds of micro-elements essential for health. And add a carrot, an apple and a some bilberries to your lunch box.
Your eyes were formed by light
When you read or work on the computer make sure that the light is right. It is a common knowledge that working with poor light can cause eyestrain, but light that is too bright can do as much damage. It is recommended that you keep your blinds down on sunny days and switch off unnecessary household lights, if possible. The best lighting for working on the computer is daylight, or a soft desk light, coming from the side. If you work long hours on the computer, try decreasing the brightness of your monitor. The colours won’t be so vivid, but your eyes will feel more relaxed by the end of the day. Your eyes evolved with light (fish in deep, dark seas where there is no light lose their sight and go blind), so feed your eyes with daylight by going for a walk in nature every day to see the different shades of green and the colours of flowers: your eyes will love it!
Dear Alan, Just to say that my husband, David, who was told he needed cataract surgery for one eye, has been using your Cataract Eye solution (with eye bath) for the past 3 weeks and has already noticed a huge improvement. I, too, have been using the eye bath for the past week, to aid with floaters in both eyes, and already I have noticed that my eyesight is brighter and clearer. As with all your other products that we have used, once again, you have performed miracles.
Sincere thanks from both of us,
Lyn Middlehurst and David Maslin. Wiltshire

There are herbal medicines that are specific for the health of the eyes
There are medicinal herbs that are specifically applicable for eye malfunctions and eye disorders including vision difficulties, conjunctivitis, cateracts, iritis, corneal problems, macular degeneration, eye injuries, sight degeneration (presbyopia), eye pain, glaucoma, styes, blepharitis, including bacterial and fungal infections of the eyes. Included in SeeMore Tonic are some traditional and many scientifically discovered herbs that have been found clinically beneficial for these conditions. The combination of medicinal herbs such as these act on the optic nerve, the blood capillaries nourishing the eyes, the lymph that washes the eyes and the immune system that protects the eyes. Such a tonic would include Herbactive leaf (asplenium) for floaters and capillary infusion of the optic area, atractylodes, jumingzi, juhua morifolium, golden thread, dodder seed, euphrasia, rhatony, yellow melilot, kudzu vine root, myrobalan fruits, billberry, yucca, spirulina, belladonna (still used by ophthalmologists as a mydriatic), elderberry and fupenzi. It may be of interest that the drug pilocarpine used for glaucoma comes from a herb called Pilocarpus japorandi known to reduce ocular pressure and used for glaucoma, detached retina, and other eye disorders.

This is usually referred to “severe irreversible vision loss” when the outer portion of the retina deteriorates. However, recent research proves that this is not true.
Dry Macular – this is a gradually progressing condition taking many years or even decades. This condition means that there are no leaky blood vessels (as in the wet type). This form usually begins in one eye than affects the other eye as well.
Wet Macular – this is said to progress fast so that the person affected notices significant vision loss even within weeks or months. But there is effective treatment which the orthodox haven’t caught onto yet. Here, the blood vessels leak and blood gets into the macular area which is responsible for central vision. This causes sudden changes in vision. It can cause an abnormal growth of blood vessels (angiogenisis) under the retina and spread (leak) around the area. Our herbal tonic contains anti-angiogenisis herbs to resist this progress. Treatment is to dry up the leaking, spreading blood vessels (anti-VEGF – vascular endothelial growth factor. Take anti-angiogenisis herbs e.g in the Macular Degeneration Herbal Tonic). Over time the rods and cones of the eye die unless you can control the leaking. Use the AirEnergy Therapy machine which increases your oxygen and reduces free radicals, and improves overall health in the process. When you order this machine (not cheap!) and use it twice daily for 20 minutes vision is greatly improved according to feedback. Please let me know if you order this machine and tell the sales team you heard it from me. Call AirNergy UK Distributors (Vital Air Devices). Made in Germany.

Hi Alan, have been taking the above tonic for about 2 months and my eye doctor says he has never seen my eye look so healthy. He did ask if it was possible for you to let me know what is in your tonic. I always find your herbal tonics amazing. Thank you so much, UK
The causes of these conditions aren’t known exactly. But it has been established that high blood pressure, stress, overweight, and a history of immune system compromise contribute to the condition. The condition affects the middle of the vision in one or both eyes. Obesity worsens the condition and it can spread more quickly. To improve the condition and hold it back we recommend a healthy ketogenic diet (see my page on this where I speak about weight loss). Symptoms are blurry vision with crooked lines, colours are less bright, faded and illusions (seeing things that are not there).
Hi Alan, I have been taking the MD Tonic for wet MD in one eye and for 50 year old injury with severe scarring in the other. After a few months I have been able to read two more lines on chart with both eyes. I take ABC Daily tonic. Thank you so much. Maggie B
Along with the Macular Degeneration Herbal Tonic (order at our webstore) which contains specific herbs to protect the vision, improve healing and reduce the pressure and spread of the blood vessels under the retina, we also recommend omega 3s e.g. fish, nuts, like walnuts. Also regular exercise and herbs to reduce high blood pressure (Heart and Circulation Herbal Tonic, order on our webstore). Do not smoke! Lose excess weight (or lose your sight). Also take extra vitamin C (at least 500mg, and up to 5g per day). Vitamin A (beta carotene. Vitamin E (400IU). Lutein 10mg). Zeaxanthin 2mg. Zinc 80mg. Copper 2mg. Egg yolks contain lutein and zeaxanthin, also green and red leafy veggies. Turmeric also helps. Also greatly recommended is our 110 plus herbal powder mixture: ABC Daily Herbal Powder.

Hi Alan, thank you so much for your advice about the Macula Degeneration Tonic and other Supplements. I shall continue to take the tonic as I am sure it is keeping my eye dry and no doubt improving its general health. I do find your herbs extremely effective, thanks again and very best wishes Maggie B. England
How to care for your eyes
- Watch your diet. Go for something like the Mediterranean Diet but keep your carbs very low (cut down those new potatoes!). Avoid fruits (but not avocados or berries), roots and grains; eat mostly fish, greens and fasts. This sort of wholefood diet will cut getting AMD by more than 50%. If you have a threat of AMD get onto our herbal tonic specifically for that condition. Increase your vitamin A. Make certain you take the ABC Powder with all its micronutrients – every day. Find the ABC on our store.
- Cleanse your lashes. Using a mild soap or face wash (or baby shampoo) wash your face and eyelids twice daily. Our eyelids collect oil all day long. This can cause stinging and irritate these sensitive areas. The oil glands along the lashes can get clogged, and the eyelids can become somewhat crusty and inflamed. Rinse the soap off well. Never go to sleep without washing your eyes and lashes and brows (they were put there to protect the eyes from sweat, dust, etc and they need cleansing daily).
- Avoid gazing into your phone or tablet too long. Give us a break, the eyes are saying! Close your eyes and allow them to use their own healing lubrication to calm and rest them. You can think of the 20-20-20 rule: look away from your screen every 20 minutes, look at something 20 feet away for 20 seconds. Oh! I see!
- Exercise regularly. Stand on your head or do a shoulder stand to improve the circulation to your beepers.
- Avoid bright sunlight by using proper UV blocking sunglasses whenever you go out or when you drive. UV light is linked to cataracts and age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
- Tonic help. If you have any eye issues start taking SeeMore Tonic. We also have eye drops for general eye health. also cataracts and AMD. Go to our store to order.
