  6. 6. Step 1: Detoxification (week1) You are subjected to so much nutritionally Deficient foods and toxins on a daily basis, that you would be well advised to start this plan by doing a bit of cleansing and detoxification. Here we’ve chosen Oxy-Powder - a top quality product to begin with.. Note: Mild to moderate exercise is also recommended in this step. Click the images of the following vision/ nutrition products to find out more.
  7. 7. Step 2: Replenish (week 2) After a week of cleansing, we have chosen Mila, which is arguably the most nutritious source available today. You can begin replenishing with Mila - a product from life max, to supplement deficiencies in your diet. Because of the constant administering of chemicals and pesticides, our soil has become more depleted and less capable of producing nutritionally rich fruits and vegetables. Now, even with a healthy diet of fruits and vegetables, doctors recommend that you take some form of supplement. This is the best source that we have found.
  8. 8. Combine Mila With YourChoice Of Vision NutritionProduct/sOur #1 choice for multivitamin, is one that contains lutein andzeaxanthin , which is called “Eye Support “ by Dr. Mercola.Dr. Mercola’s krill oil also gets the nod for best source ofomega 3 oil.
  9. 9. Other Top Quality VisionImprovement productsThere are many multivitamins on the market that aregeared towards vision improvement. Icaps, Preservision,Fortifeye,
  10. 10. More Great Vision Productseyesight rx, opti-gold, and visivite are really justa few. These however, are some of the very best visionnutrition supplements on the market today. How muchshould we take overall?? To get a better understandingof this click here.
  11. 11. Vegetables For Better Vision 1. Green Leafy Vegetables Dark leafy green vegetables like kale, spinach, and broccoli are rich in the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin. They are shown in studies to support eye health. Lutein is a powerful antioxidant used by your eyes to absorb blue light. It is found in high concentrations in your macula, the tiny central part of your retina responsible for straight-ahead and detailed vision. It is also found in the macular pigment, which helps protect your central vision. Studies show that people who ate foods high in lutein and zeaxanthin reduced their risk of macular degeneration. Those already suffering from the condition experienced significant improvements.
  12. 12. Fruits For Vision Improvement 2. Bilberry and Black Currant Bilberries and black currant are rich in anthocyanins that are found in the aqueous humor, the thick watery substance filling the space between your lens and cornea. The aqueous humor maintains the intraocular pressure, provides nutrition for other ocular tissues, and helps transport antioxidants. Anthocyanins in bilberries help protect and stimulate rhodopsin, the purple pigment that helps your eyes adapt to light and darkness and is important for night vision. Black currant anthocyanins, on the other hand, help improve visual acuity. 3. Avacado According to a study from University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA), avocados have nearly twice as much vitamin E as previously reported, making avocados the highest fruit source of the powerful antioxidant, reports BW HealthWire.. The research also showed that avocados are the highest fruit source of lutein among the 20 most frequently consumed fruits. Lutein is a carotenoid, which helps protect against eye Avocado Recipes??

  13. 13. Seafood For Better Vision 3. Krill, Salmon and Shellfish krill, Salmon, crab, lobster, and other shellfish contain asthaxanthin, the carotenoid that gives them their pink and reddish colors. Astaxanthin closely resembles lutein and zeaxanthin. • It helps to maintain the appropriate eye pressure levels • Protect your retina from oxidation caused by light • Support your eyes’ energy levels • Support visual acuity It might not always be possible or practical to obtain fresh seafood.

  14. 14. Step 3: Exercise (weeks 2-3) Combine step 1 and step 2 with exercise! Step 1: (1 week) cleanse. Step 2:(week 2), replenish with mila and your choice of multivitamin and/or eye supplement while doing mild to moderate exercises of your choosing (about 3 times a week). Note: also take oxy powder for two see recommended walking shoes! click the images above days at the beginning of weeks two, and three . You may continue to eat your favorite foods but include helpings of any two of the folowing foods. Krill or salmon, kale, or spinach, bilberry or black currant. I.e. krill/kale, salmon/spinach etc. (a seafood with a vegetable or fruit.)Master freestyle swimming! Click the image above for DVD
  15. 15. Step 4: Break – Taper Off (week 4) Give your body a break from everything i.e all cleansers, supplements, and any/all multivitamins. Partake freely of the recommended seafood, fruits and vegetables and others of your choosing. Get plenty of rest and do some relaxation exercises or things that help you to relax.
  16. 16. Step 5: Begin Again (week 5) Start this process again from week two. Continue this cycle for 4 months. After 4 months, start again at week 1. The objective is to do a two day cleansing at the beginning of every week - and a full week cleansing every four months while incorporating mild to moderate exercise and the recommended foods and supplements.
