Papaya enzymes help your body absorb proteins and help digestive system, they also strengthen immune system i guess it could help you with weightloss, ive never heard of L-carnitine.

Robert Your Questions About Carnitine

Robert asks…

Has anyone tried L-Carnitine – does it really help people to loose weight?

Has anyone tried L-Carnitine – does it really help people to loose weight?

admin answers:

L carnitine serves a variety of different functions like elevating energy levels, helping lose fat and build muscle. But we forget that its a “supplement”. We need to remember that without a sound diet and exercise program NO supplement will work no matter how good in theory it is or how effective it is for other people. Also rememeber that people react differently to different supplements so experiment a bit and see what works best for you, but priority should always be on getting the basics of nutrition right.

Your Questions About Eye Exercises For Astigmatism

Laura Your Questions About Eye Exercises For Astigmatism

Laura asks…

Getting rid of glasses?!?

How can I get rid of glasses? I’m long sighted so I have been told it is impossible for me to get any kind of eye surgery. I wear +6 glasses and I hate it! I’m too young for contact lenses and even if I was older the eye shop says they would be super hard to make for me because I also have astigmatism, (Ithink that’s how it’s spelt). I can see and even read perfectly well without my glasses but one eye (I can change which on does) turns in really badly. I actually read online that you can get rid of your glasses using special eye exercises but they involve not wearing your glasses. My mum freaks out anytime I’m not wearing my glasses because she thinks my eyesight will get worse than what it already is! Sorry for this being so long but any ideas?

admin answers:

I do have contacts for astigmatism but I’m more around -6 not +6. I’d ask around more about this. However hard contacts are not unusable if its your only option. When I first had contacts they were the only ones available and I thought they were wonderful. However they take time to get used to and are painful initially. Some people did give up on trying to wear lenses for this reason.

Not wearing your glasses does not make your eyes worse there is no evidence for this, so you need to sit your Mum down and explain to her that this is the case. Ask her to speak to the optician if she doesnt’ believe you or ask why she thinks this. If your optician thinks that your eyesight would worsen without then he/she needs to explain this to you and say why. The situation may be different becaue of your eye turn, but you are obviously able to understand your own problems and have the right to have them explained properly to you.

There is no evidence that eye exercises improve eyesight. No neutral scientific studies have verified any claims and those saying they do improve eyesight are mainly looking for you to make soem form of payment. If you think about it , if eyesight was improved by execises would anyone wear glasses/contacts? There is no way teh information could be hidden these days.

Even if there is nothing currently which can help you to manage withotu glasses there may be something in the future. When I was in school contacts had only just come out and lazer surgery was unheard of. Advances are being made all the time and you need to keep an eye on the situation.

Robert Your Questions About Eye Exercises For Astigmatism

Robert asks…

is there a natural cure for….?

astigmatism? i had a friend who had astigmatism, never went for a opt, stopped wearing glasses and all he did was “an eye exercise” …..focusing on an object for quite some time from a distance….does it really show results?

admin answers:

There are eye exercises than can reduce astigmatism and other refractive disorders. The exact mechanism of how they work is uncertain, but they do work. It seems that through exercising extraocular muscles eye and cornea somehow change into normal shape. To what extent they can reduce astigmatism I cannot say, but you will notice improvement very quickly.

Richard Your Questions About Eye Exercises For Astigmatism

Richard asks…

computers gave me myopia and astigmatism?

smh I WANT MY 20/20 BACK LOL.
any exercises to stregnthen my eye back
or its gone forever..

i know its gone FOR GOOD.

admin answers:

Working on computers will not cause myopia and/or astigmatism. These are determined by the shape of your eyeball (and the shape of your eye sockets) and the contour of your cornea, and both are determined by your genes, your inheritance. Lasik eye surgery can correct both conditions, so consider it when you are old enough and your skull has finished growing.

Vision Exercises Improve Eyesight Naturally! Seriously?,

September 26, 2011

Vision disorders are so common that we barely think about them as real health issues. For instance, according to the American Optometric Association nearsightedness is having an effect on “nearly 30 percent of the U.S. population”. To explain, every 3rd person you know can’t see well far away objects.

Well, right now I am that 3rd person wearing correction glasses because of nearsightedness. There’s only so much that medication can do for my declining eyesight. If you are like me, you most likely looked for alternative vision therapies. That’s what I did as well and there they’re – easy vision exercises, eye movement and targeting routines all claiming to improve vision naturally. “Vision exercises can improve vision naturally! Seriously?” I though and decided to discover more about these alternative approaches to vision improvement.

It all began with a book printed just about a hundred years ago. William Bates MD “The Cure of Imperfect Eyesight by Treatment Without Glasses” paved the road to quick profits for many corporations and self-pronounced vision therapists. Bates concepts are the backbone of just about all current vision therapies promising to naturally improve vision.

Contrary to scientific evidence, Bates visual acuity improvement strategies are primarily based on the postulate that some of the most typical eyesight disorders (myopia, farsightedness and astigmatism) are caused, not to the basic shape of the eye and its elements, but to functional problems of the action of the eye muscles. The reality is there is very small medical evidence to back up such claims.

I discovered that modern medicine knows for sure what the reasons for the most common eye diseases are. The bitter reality is that very few eyesight conditions are only caused by malfunction of the eye muscles and thus can be fixed naturally by “training” these muscles. Just one sane method of eye training and eye exercises – orthoptics, when carried out under professional optometric and clinical supervision can correct coordination or binocular eyesight issues such as crossed eyes and amblyopic eyes. For all else, although there might be individual success stories, the outcome of such methodologies are highly controversial.

On the other hand, I came across systematic evidence that many vision problems are strongly related to diet and way of life. For instance, the Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS), sponsored by the NEI, found age-related macular degeneration as a “nutrition-responsive disorder”. Various other smaller medical trials and medical research find that individual diet and lifestyle patterns together with hereditary traits are among the top contributors to the development of specific eyesight problems. The keys to prevention, slowing their development or reducing their symptoms are also in correct nourishment and healthful way of life.

So, is there a one hundred percent warranted strategy to improve vision naturally? Reading half-truths about eyesight and the “magical” outcomes of eye exercises, I made a decision that something should be done. The primary idea of the new blog I have created, http://naturallyimproveeyesight.com, is to raise awareness about that debatable subject. It is an fair info source about the trustworthiness and effectiveness of the most common therapeutic techniques that claim to improve eyesight naturally.

If you want to Naturally Improve Eyesight, then you need to go to http://naturallyimproveeyesight.com and find out the honest truth about eyesight and some proved paths to improve your eyesight naturally.
