"Remedy the remedy." 1968 Ad advice for vision improvement.

One of my favorite writers, Gene Schwartz, was promoting a book, Food is Your Best Medicine, by Dr. Henry Bieler.

I was reading his 1968 ad for the book the other day... just a little "light reading" before bed.

In this particular ad, he highlights Dr. Bieler's practice of treating people with food and avoiding drugs as much as possible.

In fact, Dr. Bieler states...

    "I believe that nature, if given the right opportunity, is always the greatest healer.... I often have been in disagreement with doctors who stuff the sick, exhausted patient with powerful drugs, and then are forced to 'remedy the remedy.'" 

Remedy the remedy.

That phrase struck me.

Of course, giving nature the right visual opportunity leads to natural vision improvement. But, I thought, how true that we end up having to "remedy the remedy" for our poor eyesight.

We're given a remedy... glasses, contacts, surgeries... and they don't make things better. We can artificially see clearer... for a while. Until we need stronger glasses. The problem doesn't go away. The visual strain is still there, and only gets worse with time.

However, it doesn't have to be that way. Your practice of natural vision improvement gives nature the opportunity to reverse that downward trend.

Glasses were the given remedy, and only muck things up. But thankfully, you know how to "remedy the remedy."

Keep giving your visual system the space for nature to do it's thing. Keep up your routines for visual relaxation. Practice better visual habits everyday... and give your eyesight room to improve, instead of confining it to continuing decline.

    "... Nature, if given the right opportunity, is always the greatest healer..."

Cheers to your natural vision.

Vision improvement. Slow and steady... or Potter style?

Chapter 12. Year 2. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets...

Harry, Ron, and Hermione concoct a potion (Polyjuice Potion) to transform themselves into the goons of their nemesis.

It was a ploy to spy on the "bad guys." The potion worked, for the most part.

However, Harry, usually wearing glasses - I can't imagine being the best wizard in the history of mankind and still needing glasses, but...

When the Polyjuice Potion kicked in, Harry turned into one of the brutes from Draco Malfoy's goon squad. He burst out of his old shoes, shirt, and watch as he grew twice his size in thirty seconds or so.

Then... he had to take off his glasses...

Because with "normal" eyesight, the world blurred through his lenses. His new perspective on the world did not need glasses, and trying to see through them was disturbing.

Potter had instantaneous... spontaneous... natural vision improvement.

And... it's a total work of fiction. A fascinating and worthwhile read, but... fiction.

However, the next one is apparently true.

In Take Off Your Glasses And See, author Jacob Liberman tells of people with multiple personality disorders. Many carried around several pairs of glasses everywhere they went. Depending on "who" was in charge determined the amount of prescription they needed. 

One minute, they're wearing strong lenses... The next minute, a switch of personality, and perfect eyesight. 

Instantaneous... spontaneous... natural vision improvement. And that's no Polyjuice Potion.

But more important, you don't have to have Hermione's secret formulas, or multiple personality disorders, to experience better eyesight.

You only need to be willing to see the world differently.

Will it be instant and spontaneous for you? Who knows. It's possible. It happens.

However, usually... it's like developing any other skill. Keep practicing with proper form, a helpful mindset, and get a little better everyday.

Practice good vision habits a little better each day until you have consistent clear eyesight.

It might happen instantaneously, it might take a while... but keep at it, keep "smiling behind your eyes" and you will see better... you will see the world in a whole new way.

How to not lose sight when the tension is on.

The lights were dim.

The air stagnant, tense, and the conversation was Hot. And not hot in a good way.

Hot in a way that demands keeping composure when you really want to release "The Hulk."

I'm not going to hang out all my dirty laundry in public, but I will say this. Given the circumstances... I did good.

It was one of those "pivotal" conversations with someone who... let's just say there was a lot riding on the interaction. I'm not saying names, but imagine a terse moment with a spouse... boss... co-worker... or an eager, under quota law enforcement officer.

You know the type of conversation.

The one where your stomach knots up into a ball and rises up to your chest. I was thirsty! High shallow breathing. Clammy hands and a dry mouth. One of those times when you're ready for war, but have to be a diplomat.

It happened last week. My whole body was ready to leap into action, and at the same time... it was tight. Rigid. My back muscles strained and locked.

If you have a tendency for poor eyesight... I just gave you the recipe for blur.

Strain. Stress. Tension, shallow breathing, and holding rigid.

If you would've tested my eyesight right then... in the dim lit room... it would not have looked too good.

But here's what I could have done.

And what you can do in stressful situations... and for your eyesight... anytime.

Swing it.

Swing it. If I could have gotten up and eased into 100 Long Swings, I bet my body would have loosened up, my breathing regulated itself, the belly knot let go... and I would see better... even in the dim room.

It might look weird to excuse yourself in front of the Judge to do the "Elephant Swing" (one of my favorites by the way) 100 times, but... you can and should short swing anywhere, and everywhere you go.

So, let my tense, blood pressure screaming conversation be a reminder to Swing. The principles of vision improvement help you see better... and they also help you stay relaxed and centered in all areas of life. They go hand in hand.

Anyway, don't forget to swing. Or, maybe said better, "Remember to Swing for Ease and Clarity."

p.s. It wasn't the Priest, I didn't lose a "job," my happy marriage is not in jeopardy, and the police didn't find my still in the hills. So, all is good in the life of Vision Improvement Coach. I made it out the other side... Swinging the Whole Way.

Why did you stop?

Why did you stop doing the things you love?

The things that bring you joy.

I've been asking myself the same question. I don't know why. It seems silly. But here's what to do... and how it relates to natural eyesight.

Just keep Moving.

Move. Breathe. Relax.

Don't let the pressures and stress of life keep you from moving toward your goals and doing the things you love. Don't stop. Just keep going, one little step at a time.

Put pen to paper and just keep writing. Or, put the guitar in your lap and just keep strumming. Whatever it is you do, don't stop. Keep moving. As my martial arts teacher used to say, "Keep your hands up and keep moving forward."

It worked in the ring... it works in life... and it works with natural vision improvement.

Don't stop.

Keep moving.

That's the key to natural clear eyesight. Because when you keep moving...

When your head and eyes are moving All Day Long...

And you're breathing full and natural (not holding your breath)...

You relax your mind and eyes. When you relax your mind and eyes... you see one thing best at a time.

Then, you'll have natural clear eyesight, regardless of what stress life throws your way... work, family, holidays, defrost buttons that down work in your car (that's one for me this morning.) Regardless of what pours on the pressure...

Keep Moving. Breathe. Relax.

Yes, it will help your eyesight...

And, it's a lot easier than holding rigid, holding breath, and tension.

Good for your eyes.Good for life.Good for relationships.

Even good in the boxing ring should you find yourself there anytime soon.

Move. Breathe. Relax.
