Dear Friends and Colleagues,
This month’s e-zine focuses on Children’s Eye Health. We are featuring two public articles related to this topic combined with other interesting pieces, like our Practitioner of the Month, who is a California- based pediatrician; or the story of the blind baby and of course, a protocol to help stimulate improved eyesight.
The performance of our eyes depends on much more than the eyes, nerve conduction and processing of the brain. As stated so beautifully by Marc Grossman, O.D., L.Ac.: “I believe that eyesight is not an isolated phenomenon but is rooted in our totality. Our being includes our genetic makeup, the food we eat, our work environment and exposure to air borne toxins, as well as our belief systems about ourselves and our world. Each unique individual literally takes in the world through the senses, primarily vision.”
I highly recommend considering our waste and toxicity levels and more importantly, the reduction of both with well working liver functions. This is a different perspective, which is given consideration by Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It is said that the liver opens into the eyes. The liver blood nourishes and moistens the eyes. Dry eyes, red, bloodshot eyes, blurred vision, spots or floaters, poor eyesight and poor night vision are due to liver blood deficiency or liver fire.
It is also understood that the eye is nourished by all of the internal organs in the body. Therefore an imbalance in any of the internal organs may lead to eye disease.
Marc Grossman, O.D., L.Ac., notes that visual health is a dynamic process including such considerations as:
- the type of work we do (90% of accountants are nearsighted while only 10% of farmers are nearsighted);
- lifestyle, which includes whether we smoke cigarettes, drink alcohol and coffee, exercise, attitude, etc.;
- adaptation to stress;
- computer use;
- what we eat as well as how well we absorb nutrients;
- health conditions;
Since the age of 7, I was wearing reading glasses due to corneal irregularity. At the age of 36, when I started to use ONDAMED on myself, I noticed that my eyesight improved and that I no longer needed reading glasses. I observe the same phenomena with my patients who often see clearer and in more vibrant colors as they’re cleansing cells and tissue from within with help of the ONDAMED, along with improved nutritional habits.
On a different note, I am excited to share with you that ONDAMED received approval from the Health Sciences Authority (HAS) in Singapore for the indication:
“ONDAMED is a mains and battery-powered stimulator that applies electromagnetic (EM) energy to the body to alleviate pain associated with various disorders such as chronic pain, intractable pain and/or as an adjunctive treatment for the management of post-traumatic pain and postoperative pain and/or to treat wounds and soft tissue injuries.”
We are grateful to our distributor partner, Elizabeth Lee, for her diligent efforts in obtaining the approval.
Enjoy our e-zine and feel free to share it with others.
I look forward to seeing you soon, either in St. Louis, New York, Boston, or Germany.
Gratefully Yours, Silvia
