Seeing Is Believing: Supernatural Vision Health
Sometimes we don’t appreciate what we have until we no longer possess it. Our vision accounts for up to 80% of our sensory input, so needless to say we should preserve healthy vision – at all cost!
Your eyes are like priceless cameras that process thousands of images everyday, which are then stored on your master hard drive (your brain) to be recalled whenever you desire.
Years ago, I took a church youth group on a mission trip to the Bahamas. During our trip, I took the youth to a remote uninhabited island that could only be reached on foot at low tide. We knew we only had a brief window of time to get to the island and back before the tide came in again. In our haste to get to the island, every one of us forgot our cameras!
From our unspoiled vantage point on this lush island, we could see some of the most beautiful scenery you could imagine. Suddenly I told the youth, “Take pictures!” Confused the children said, “But, we forgot our cameras!” I replied, “Use your eyes and you will capture this day forever.”
I can still recall every frame of that breath taking experience years later. Let me prove it to you.
Have you ever seen the Grand Canyon, Mount Rushmore or the Empire State Building? Walk to a quiet place, close your eyes and focus. See it? Of course you do. Taking into account the great importance of our vision, we must remember there are factors that can impair your ability to see.
- Poor nutrition
Knowing this, there is obviously only one area you have control of: nutrition! So before we tackle the supernatural side of vision health, let’s talk about what we can do to enhance our vision health naturally.
Nutrition for Vision
Popeye, Spinach and YouWe often think of Popeye the sailor as a muscle bound cartoon hero who derived his strength from spinach, maybe there is more to the story.
You see, spinach contains the antioxidant lutein, which has been proven to reduce the risk of developing age related macular degeneration (AMD). Spinach also contains:
- Beta carotene (vitamin A)
- Vitamins C, E and B
People with a diet that includes spinach also have lower incidences of cataracts. Carrots, rich in carotene (vitamin A) are an obvious and nutritious choice for natural eye health. After all, have you ever seen a blind bunny?
