Using the Better Eye Health Protocol: Liquid Vitamins

By Carlyle Coash

Since the 1950s, ophthalmologists have done the following: (1.) When they make a new diagnosis of macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa or Stargardt disease, they tell the person that they are very sorry, but they have nothing to offer, and their vision will continue to deteriorate. (2.) Before the person leaves the doctors office, they are given a bottle of eye vitamins and told, “Here, take these, they may slow down your vision loss.” The AREDS study (age-related eye disease study) was funded by a vitamin manufacturer to allow them to advertise their vitamins as a support for people with macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa, Stargardt disease and other serious eye problems. You need vitamins, and you can do SO much better than the products marketed as AREDS vitamins. We describe the colloidal vitamins we recommend, and why we like them.
In this episode the topic is the product Ortho Liquid Multi by Protocol. As with minerals, vitamins are often lacking in our daily diet to the levels that help us heal and stay balanced. Making sure you have a well balanced multi-vitamin, especially one that is liquid for better absorption, is another key to helping your eyes and body become stronger.

Using the Better Eye Health Protocol: Super DHA – BEH Podcast

By Carlyle Coash

Supplements are an important part of the Better Eye Health Program™. (Necessary, but not sufficient) Minerals are best taken away from foods and other vitamins. We use mineral supplements that are very soluble and very well absorbed, even if your gut is less than 100% healthy. Minerals like this are very reactive, forming insoluble complexes with the fats in foods and the various fat-soluble vitamins. We discuss why combination vitamin-mineral products do not serve you. Also, we discussed the difference between humic and fulvic minerals, and the difference between our need for minerals as supplements, and the need for a healthy level of minerals in all the water we drink. You need minerals!In this episode the topic is the product Carlson Super DHA. Having high quality oils, especially Omega-3 oils, is crucial for the functioning of so many systems in the body. It supports health and healing, and yet sadly we often are lacking enough of this important substance. It is usually the case that we have more Omega-6 and 9 in our diet, which does not provide the complete package. Also important is to make sure the oils you do eat come from a clean source. The Carlson brand has long strived to make sure their oil is the best.

Is It Safe To Eat Fish?

By Carlyle Coash

Fish are an excellent food source for the essential fatty acids and DHA needed for eye health. Yet as the oceans become increasingly polluted, there are concerns about the safety of fish as food. We discuss the pros and cons of eating fish. Our conclusion? There are still fish available where the benefits gained from this nutritious food source outweigh the risks.

Is Lab Testing Needed When You Start the Program?

Lab testing is not required before you start Better Eye Health Program™. This program combines a variety of self-administered therapies to support eye health to allow regeneration of damaged tissues. These therapies also support overall health, and many people report multiple health benefits overall when doing the Better Eye Health Program™. If you are doing the therapies regularly and your eyes are not improving, or you have other health challenges we might later suggest some lab testing. Our goal is your total health, with therapies that are safe for the eyes.

When To Wear Sunglasses If You Have Eye Issues – Podcast

By Carlyle Coash

The sun is not your enemy. Some sunlight exposure helps stimulate the production of useful pigments in the retina. Human beings evolved with the sun, and our eyes evolved to expect sun exposure. We discuss times when sunglasses are helpful, but we do not recommend you wear them every time you go outside. If you are very sensitive to sunlight, you may need more lutein in your supplement program.

When Do You Renew The Carbon Pads?

By Carlyle Coash

If you are using the carbon rubber pads to apply microcurrent stimulation for treatment anywhere on your body, we recommend you replace these pads once a year. The carbon pads are reusable, economic and very effective, but they do wear out. Trouble is, you cannot see when they wear out. Making a rubber electrode that will conduct electricity is a high-tech trick. When you run current, even microcurrents through these pads every day, the electrical quality of the material changes. The electrical resistance in the pads increases with use. Eventually, the pads act as insulators, not conductors. Replace the pads every year. If it suddenly seems that your unit is no longer putting out any current, replace the pads as this is likely the issue.

When Do You Need Larger Lutein Doses

By Carlyle Coash

Our basic recommendation for everyone is that they take 40 mg of lutein daily if the product they are using is sourced from the FloraGlo® company in Europe. It is sourced from a different manufacturer, then we recommend 80 mg each day. Lutein helps restore the pigment layer of the retina. If someone is continuing to have problems coping with glare, bright lights at night, bright sunlight or has poor night vision, we recommend they increase their dosage to 60 mg or even 80 milligrams each day if the product has FloraGlo® lutein. If the product does not contained lutein from the FloraGlo® company we recommend the higher dose be 120 to 160 mg per day. If you have macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa or Stargardt disease, you need lutein. Take a dose that matches the dose is shown to be effective in decades of scientific research.

Best Way To Breathe When Doing BEH Exercises

By Carlyle Coash

The eye health exercises in the Better Eye Health Program™ are designed to increase mobility in the head, neck and upper chest. This is been shown to increase blood flow in the brain and eyes, which is important for health and healing. To release and relax tight muscles and connective tissue we encourage a process of relaxation. Pulling on tight muscles makes them tighter. We instruct you in the various exercises to breathe in and move till you gently encounter a limit caused by tight muscles. Breathe out, feeling the tight muscles relax. Stay put, breathe in again and as you breathe out, feel a bit more release and relaxation. Release comes easiest on the breath out.

What You Do When You Don’t See Flashing

By Carlyle Coash

This topic is only of interest to those people with macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa or Stargardt disease using microcurrent stimulation to support the health of their eyes. Microcurrent stimulation is used in medicine to restore the energy in the tissues being treated. When tissues regain their normal level of energy and metabolism they then have the energy they need for repair and regeneration. When treating the eyes, this therapeutic current also causes the retinal cells responsible for sight to respond, and the brain interprets this in the same way as if light had stimulated those cells. Our brain thinks the microcurrent stimulation is some sort of light and reports it as such. If the current is pulsing at nine times per second (9 Hz), then your brain thinks you are seeing a light flashing at nine times a second. But there is no light. People with retinal degeneration due to macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa or Stargardt disease, when they adjust the current for treatment as instructed, may not see flashing. This is okay. There cells are not healthy when they first begin the program, and their eyes will not respond to the microcurrent simulation in the same way that their eyes are not responding normally to light. When people finally start to see the flashing, they know their eyes are starting to heal.

How Much Microcurrent Stimulation Do I Need Every Day?

By Carlyle Coash

If you are doing microcurrent stimulation as part of the therapy for your eyes, do the minimum recommended by your practitioner. Most practitioners recommend 20 minutes of treatment twice a day. If you are using the newer automatic unit from MicroStim®, the unit is programmed to deliver a five-minute treatment cycle. So, you would do four cycles, twice a day, five days a week. Taking two days off each week is important, and taking a rest from treatment of 1 to 2 weeks every two months is recommended. If you have the luxury of extra time in your day to devote to eye health, we recommend adding other healthy activities like walking, yoga, Pilates, Qi gong etc. Anything you do to benefit your overall health will benefit the health of your eyes.
