1. Dark Leafy Greens
The carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin are primarily found in green leafy vegetables, with kale and spinach topping the list of lutein-rich foods. Other healthy options include Swiss chard, collard greens, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts.
Lutein and zeaxanthin are both important nutrients for eye health, as both of them are found in high concentrations in your macula — the small central part of your retina responsible for detailed central vision.
2. Orange Pepper
According to one 1998 study in the British Journal of Ophthalmology orange pepper had the highest amount of zeaxanthin of the 33 fruits and vegetables tested. Zeaxanthin cannot be made by your body, so you must get it from your diet.
3. Organic Pastured Egg Yolks
Egg yolk is a source of both lutein and zeaxanthin along with healthy fat and protein, and while the total amount of carotenoids is lower than in many vegetables, they’re in a highly absorbable, nearly ideal form.
4. Wild-Caught Alaskan Salmon
Rich in omega-3s, the omega-3 fat DHA is concentrated in your eye’s retina. It provides structural support to cell membranes that boost eye health and protect retinal function, and research suggests eating more foods rich in these fats may slow macular degeneration.
Blackcurrants contain some of the highest levels of anthocyanins found in nature — approximately 190-270 milligrams per 100 grams which is far more than that found in even bilberries. They’re also rich in essential fatty acids, lending added support to their anti-inflammatory properties.
The time of year that many of us dread is here once again. Hay fever symptoms, watery eyes and runny nose make us reach for the anti histamine. Hay fever affects millions of people and year after year we put up with the effects of the medication in order to stop the symptoms.
The natural world might just hold the answer for you. Finding out exactly what your allergens are and treating them for you as an individual could hold the key to preventing your suffering. For 70% of people, one remedy is enough for life! A second remedy may be used for a few.
So whats the secret?
When you find the allergens that affect you as an individual and treat them, you are targeting the cause not just the symptoms. Finding out your individual allergens is easy. Bio resonance analysis uses frequency or sound waves to pulse through your body, scanning for your reaction against substances. Including, tree, flower and grass pollen, animal hairs/furs/feathers, dust mite, household chemicals, fabrics and lots more. Taking the bio resonance of these reactions, we can make a remedy unique to you and imprint it into a liquid. Boosting your immune system with drops on the tongue reduces the effect of the allergens.
Some natural solutions to help may include eating some local honey. This uses the very pollens that are getting up your nose and once ingested boosts your immunity against the effect they are having on you. Try dabbing a little petroleum jelly up your nose, this catches the pollen before it gets into your sinus. Avoid foods high in histamine, these include red wine and pork.
