Relaxing Your Eyes to Better Vision

If 30 minutes of your time, three days a week might improve your vision, would you take that time?  According to Carla Berg, Master Herbalist and soon to be Natural Vision Coach, “To improve vision a person needs to relax and use their eyes differently.  When people have a hard time seeing, they typically will squint.  Squinting is one of the worst things you can do for your vision as it stresses your eye muscles”.   

"Basically, there are six muscles on the outside of your eye, which move the eye around.  Ideally, these muscles are comfortably following visual interests.  The problem is that from emotional stress, or physical stress, our eyes often become strained.   Once we experience this strain, our vision can be impaired.”

Berg further stated, “In a world full of environmental stresses and synthesized conveniences, I believe it’s more important than ever to get ‘back to the basics’ with health, nutrition, and how we use our eyes.   It is possible to use nature to help our bodies heal and to see more clearly.  There are a variety of herbs used externally and internally that specifically target the eye and its components.  Herbs combined with relaxing eye muscle techniques can greatly improve blood flow, circulation, and oxygen levels, which can lead to improved eye health.”

Join Carla Berg and her assistant, Gemma Lawless, at the Hobbs State Park visitor center to learn some inspiring, non-medical, holistic, vision therapy techniques that could help you to see better.   30 minutes of eye relaxing exercises a day, three days a week, might be all it takes.
