Now, You can Throw Away Those Glasses and Heal Glaucoma Naturally!

I believe that everyone are aware and knows something about glaucoma. What exactly is glaucoma and what do we need to know about it? Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that leads to the damage of the optic nerve, the nerve that carries visual information from eye to the brain. This condition is caused by excess pressure to the eyeball and if left untreated can cause permanent damage to the affected eye and may lead to blindness. Even though the idea of having one may sound painful but then most people have no idea that they actually have it. Having glaucoma can be scary since the first time symptoms would show up it would be too late to do anything about it. Once the outbreak occurs there is nothing anyone can do to end the disease.

Tunnel vision and narrowing in the field of vision are the first symptoms of Glaucoma, which quickly moves into the final stages of Glaucoma which leads to permanent blindness. The poor circulation, poor drainage and plugged channels around the eyes are the main causes of glaucoma. The main causes of these symptoms are too much stress, strain, outside stressors as well as the many toxins in the body. A lot of people may still end up with blindness. The fix helps to prolong the inevitable for awhile longer.

Since glaucoma is usually caused by stress and once diagnosed with this kind of disease, the disease doesn’t stop there because in most cases it only worsens the stress. Thus, it now creates anxiety, nervousness and the scare of blindness. The fear of unknown together with weariness starts to consume the daily struggles in their life that only adds to the strain and stress on the eyes. This only makes the symptoms to worsen instead of taking steps to remedy or try to fix the issue.

Any person who suffers from glaucoma should seek medical advice and attention because if this is left undetected, may cause blindness. There’s however several steps that you can take for yourself to cure the eye ailments by learning how to relax the eyes. Every night what you need to do is to take some time to fully relax your eyes before sleeping. While lying in bed with eyes closed, make your muscles relax form head to toes. Concentrate most especially on relaxing those muscles around the eyes by fully relaxing before falling asleep to ensure a better night’s sleep to wake up refreshed. Glaucoma can be a very scary thought, and by learning to relax the eyes, you can take natural steps to cure the ailment.

There are several steps to take to combat glaucoma. Here is a great way to improve your eye vision by taking time to relax and give way to create eye health, find out how at Vision Health.

Learning a Few Exercises for the Eyes is Worth a Clearer Sight

After that long working hours at the office or any place of work, our eyes are tired, sometimes overused and they must have time to relax and release pressure to renew and improve our vision. The worst thing that we can do to our eyes is to strain and to stare too much. In order for us to keep our eyes healthy and working at our advantage, there are some distinctive helpful alternative exercises for the eyes which are designed to keep our eyes feeling strained.

Here are three things to learn when doing eye exercises:

  • Dot exercise- For this type of eye exercise you must first need to find a period or a comma on a certain page or post you are currently looking and make sure that you focus on it while making it as clear as possible. Stare at that period or point until you feel that it clearly comes into your eyes focus. There is a big chance that after a few seconds that period will become less clear and blurry.

Do this exercise while at the same time relaxing the eyes. Close your eyes for some time and then relax a bit. Continue what you have been doing by staring at the period again without straining your eyes. Try not to stare but instead let your eyes move slowly around the page, then over a period and around that period. Making sure that you are not focusing your eyes on the period alone since the eyes needs to move. You can blink your eyes as well for a short time while you close your eyes and at the same time creating a picture of the dot, then slowly look at it again. And once your eyes are more relax and focus then most surely it easier for you to see the period.

  • Word exercise- This is the second kind of exercise for the eyes. What you are going to do this time is to look for a word on a page or note you are looking. It is suggested to find a word with five or more letters and then stare at the word making out the complete view of the letters without moving the eyes. Be sure to give your entire focus on the whole word while trying to catch and keep hold of that image in your head. If you are staring, glaring or concentrating too hard it will again cause the word to blur when looking at it.

By this time you should be more relaxed or let your eyes relax a bit and try to move it slowly over, around and across each letter of the word, allowing the eyes to lead you at the same time. Do not force your eyes to view or look at what you wanted.  Doing this should make the word clearer when you are looking at it again. Allowing your eyes to move around is what’s aiding them to work there best without straining them.

  • Double Vision exercise- This exercise is meant to get your eyes to work as a team. Many individuals tend to use one eye to look at a certain object, while the other one is working on a different task. You can help make an object brought to its sharper focus with both of your eyes but doing this cause unnecessary stress to the eyes. The trick here is ensuring that the eyes are relax, making them focus on the object lightly in a calming way thereby allowing both of the eyes to focus clearly together.

Clearly and understandably, learning tips and tricks about eye exercises and keeping them relax is always a great way to develop useful and lasting habits while at the same time ensuring that your eyes will remain great for more years to come.

Starting Again with the Effects of too much Water Intake

It has been a while since I've updated my blog. Now that I have enough time on my hands to post some of my ideas with the help of other sources on and off the we. I am again on my quest for  another health and wellness ideas and blog posts. Today I'm starting with water (H2O), and we all know how water is essential to our life and health- a shortage of water can cause dehydration and too much may cause water intoxication.

So I'll be starting with the effects of too much water intake for a change. Why do they say that we drink more water and then now it can even cause death?!

According to a source, we must realize that drinking more water than what is essentially needed will cause harm to our systems. That doesn't mean that we need to restrict our water consumption. What is important is for us to drink water in a healthy moderation in order for our system to fully manage and regulate the amount of liquid that goes into our body. Once you force your body to take in large amount of water in a short time, it is highly natural for your kidney to struggle while eliminating enough water out from the body to keep the water level sufficient and at a safety level.

The circulatory system then becomes diluted with the excess amount of water and electrolyte concentration in your blood will drop in response to the concentration of electrolytes in the cells. In relation to the effort maintained to keep the balance of electrolytes between the body and the cells, will cause the cells to swell. If this happens in your brain, increased pressure in the intracranial occurs whereby your brain will get squeezed the flat bones that makes up the skull will not be able to put in much help.

Depending on the amount of water that you ingest, you might experience different types of symptom that can cause a mild headache to an impaired breathing. Understandably, you may also want to know what you can do when you are experiencing water intoxication.

So the question here is: What is water intoxication and what can it to our health?

Water intoxication, also known as water poisoning or dilutional hyponatremia in, is a potentially fatal disturbance in brain functions that results when the normal balance of electrolytes in the body is pushed outside safe limits as an example is hyponatremia by overhydration or over-consumption of water.

Water intoxication happens when too much water enters the body's cells where it causes the tissues to swell because of excess fluid. Our cells maintain that specific amount of concentration or gradient so what happens is that excess water outside the cells(the serum) will have to draw sodium from within the cells and then out into the serum as an attempt to re-establish or regulate the concentration that is needed. Therefore, as more water accumulates the more serum sodium concentration drops happens which is known as hyponatremia.

If water intoxication occurs, this will provoke disturbances in the electrolyte balance that results in a rapid decrease in serum sodium concentration and can cause fatal death. The development of acute dilutional hyponatremia can pose a neurological symptom as a result of the movement of water into the brain cells as a response to the deficiency in extracellular osmolality.

This may also produce the same effects as one would have experience form drowning in fresh water.

The unbalanced electrolyte with the swelling of tissues cab cause the heart to beat irregularly giving way for the fluids to enter the lungs that cause eyelids to flutter. The swelling will place a pressure on the brain and nerves that may provoke behaviors akin to alcohol intoxication. Brain tissue swelling may cause seizures, coma and may ultimately lead to death, unless acted upon with restricted water intake and a hypertonic saline solution (salt solution) is administered. However, if a treatment is provided before swelling occurs to cause damage on cellular tissues then a complete recovery will take place in just a short period of time or a few days after.

In the late 19th century, the expropriation of the term "water cure", which is already in use in the therapeutic sense that would by then mean as the exact opposite of therapy which is torture. This in a sense has created the hallmark arising in the sense of irony. And I should believe this was done to prevent reactions to water cure therapy and its promotion.
