Eye Rebuild - Traditional Method
Every body system has a specific plant or group of plants that cleanse, nourish and heal it. Dr Christopher developed formulas for all of these rebuilds.
In the book by his son David Christopher we read about healing the eyes at the end of chapter 5. The below formulas work on all sorts of eye needs including blindness, cataracts, glaucoma, and even those blind from birth. (see references for link to the book online)
I have benefited personally from Dr Christopher’s formulas and maintained my sight even though I inherited macular degeneration. In my 30s I began loosing my vision. I followed the below method by washing my eyes each day with 2 or more drops of the Herbal Eye Extract in an eye cup filled the rest of the way with distilled water. I did this for a minute or two each day. I also took the Herbal Eye capsules and the Bilberry Eye Capsules daily.
Now in my 60’s instead of my eyes getting worse or me going blind like my uncles and aunts I am seeing clearly with 20/20 vision and my night vision is very clear.
I invite you to follow these simple principles and the program as outlined and see what it does for you.
Principle 1: The foundation of fresh nutrition:
Seek out and eat a whole fresh diet consisting of fresh fruits and vegetables in season and in their whole state. Meeting your body's needs with the food you eat will allow the targeted herbal nutrition to rebuild your damage the quickest.
Principle 2: 6 and 1
Experience shows that this rebuild works better when the 6 and 1 principle is followed. This is also known as the sabbath principle. This means taking the herbs six days a week and on the seventh day not taking any herbs, thereby allowing the body to rest from the work of rebuilding. This cycle is repeated for six weeks and during the seventh week no herbs are taken. During the seventh week an individual pays attention to their body and notices if the reasons for the rebuild of that system are taken care of or are still present. If there are still symptoms of system weakness then another six weeks of rebuilding is indicated. For some weaknesses multiple rebuild cycles may be needed. Keep going until the rebuild is complete.
Principle 3: Exercise and internal cleanliness
Health restores as quickly as the body can clean out old damaged tissue and repair or replace the damaged with new perfect tissue. Exercise is the work that helps the clean out happen. Regular moderate exercise is very valuable. Having properly functioning cleansing organs helps the toxins exit your body. The bowel that is moving properly 3 times a day, kidneys and liver that is working to filter and clear toxins is critical to good progress in a rebuild. Exercise 4-6 times a week is best.
The Eye Rebuild process that has worked for many (take more or less to meet your needs)
Take the capsules and wash the eyes 2, 3, or more times each day as you are able. Be consistent.
Herbal Eye Extract. Put 2-5 drops of extract in clean sterile eye cup. Fill with sterile distilled water. Tilt the head forward and place the eye cup over the eye. Tilt the head back and with the eye open move the eye all around for several minutes.
Bilberry Eye Capsules. Take as directed or adapt to your need.
This formula consists of a synergistic blend of herbs to help with the healthy circulation to the eye. This Dr Christopher formula helps promote blood circulation to the eyes helping to repair damaged vessels, improve night vision, cleanse the tissues and bring antioxidants to the eye. Bilberries are a close relative of blueberries, and are high in a bioflavonoid complex known as anthocyanosides. Anthocyanosides speed the regeneration of rhodopsin, the purple pigment that is used by the rods in the eye for night vision. This makes bilberry a possible first line of defense for those with poor night vision.
Dr Christopher's Bilberry Eye Support Formula Contains: Bilberry, Eyebright, Ginkgo Biloba Leaves & Cayenne Pepper. All encapsulated products are in a pure 100% vegetable based capsule.
Herbal Eye Capsules. Take as directed or adapt to your need.
Description: This formula had been used historically for eye disorders such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, retinopathy and night blindness. In addition, this formula has been used to help promote the general health of the eyes. This formula is a synergistic blend of herbs. Bayberry Bark, Eyebright Herb, Goldenseal Root, Red Raspberry Leaf & Cayenne Pepper
Bayberry bark contains astringent compounds that reduce the secretion of fluids, reduce pain and shrink inflamed tissues.
Goldenseal root is an excellent herbal source of trace minerals, which include cobalt, iron, magnesium, manganese, silicon and zinc. It is also an excellent herbal source of vitamin C.
Eyebright herb also contains astringent compounds that shrink inflamed tissues. It also consists of bitter compounds that relieve pain, are antiseptic and soothe inflamed mucous membranes. This herb is also an excellent herbal source of B-1, B-2, niacin, calcium, cobalt, magnesium, manganese and zinc.
Red Raspberry leaves consists of astringent compounds that help to relieve pain and shrink inflamed tissues. This herb is also a great herbal source of manganese.
Cayenne is widely used in Dr. Christopher’s original formulas as a catalyst herb. Its stimulant effects speed the circulation causing it to enhance digestion and absorption and thus the effectiveness of nearly any Dr. Christopher original formula.
Herbal Product Directions: As a dietary supplement take 2 capsules 3 times a day or as directed by your healthcare professional. Store in a cool, dry place.
An Eye Cup - the method is to put 2 or more drops of Dr Christopher’s Herbal Eye Extract in to a clean eye cup, fill the rest of the way with sterile distilled water. Tilt the head forward and place the filled eyecup over one eye. Holding the eye cup against the eye tilt the head back and ‘swim’ the eye by moving it all around as if looking around the room. Do this for about 1-2 minutes daily or twice daily. Repeat for the other eye.
