HERBAL AID FOR THE EYES
by Dr. John Christopher
I developed an herbal eyewash (EWCombination) that corrects a wide variety of eye problems. In most cases, eye problems, even serious ones such as cataracts and glaucoma, will show tremendous improvement within a matter of months.
Many years ago a man came to me from British Columbia. I noticed that his glasses were as thick as the end of a Coke bottle. I asked," How long have you had your vision problems?" He said, "It's been going on for 20 years or more. My vision is diminishing rapidly." I assured him that this need not happen. Then I told him about the herbal formula containing Golden Seal, Bayberry, and Eyebright.
He went back home and I didn't hear from him for 6 months or so. Then I received a postcard. He said his eyes were starting to hurt when he wore his glasses and had switched to another weaker pair, which helped. Three months later he wrote again saying he had gone through another 2 pairs of old glasses and was now wearing ones he had worn 15 years ago. He was elated. Three months later he reported being able to work without any glasses and he could fix watches and diamonds without the pain he had always known.
When you don't understand how the herbs work, it certainly would seem unbelievable so let me explain. The formula contains Goldenseal which kills any infection or bacteria in the eye tissue, and Eyebright which has been used to help eye problems for the last 700 years.
Often, within a week of starting, people notice mucous and pus coming out of their eyes when they awaken. This is simply damaged cells and toxic materials which are being cleansed from the eyes.
When the entire eye is cleaned out, it will become almost crystal clear. The word Eyebright means "cheerfulness due to improved vision."
How fast can a person expect results? It depends on the person and the problem.
Sometimes there are results in only 3 weeks. Sometimes it takes 5-6 months or more.
For example, I helped a man who suffered from near-sightness. His eyes were too weak to pass the driving requirements. He was legally blind. He used the EW, and Eyebright Combination, 5 months later passed his driving test--without glasses!
I remember a lady from Wyoming. Whenever she came to see me, she was led in either by a child or a seeing-eye dog. Over a 10- year period, her eyesight had deteriorated so that she could hardly see at all. She tried the EW and showed up in my office 7 months later. This time there was no child or seeing-eye dog to lead her in. She greeted me, walked to my herbal book, picked it up and begin reading to me from the section on peppermint. . She wasn't reading fast, but she didn't miss a word.
Dr. Christopher also urges that the capsules be taken internally as well. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL IF YOU EXPECT TO GET COMPLETE RESULTS!
The folowing testimonials from Dr. Christopher. They are not to be considered as claims or prescriptions but merely accounts of what has helped others.
CATARACTS: It usually takes 5 months or more; however, it can happen sooner. For instance, one woman had cataracts for over 15 years and came to me totally blind because of them. So she began to use the eyewash regularly, at least 5 times a day. Nothing happened in the beginning except a little discharge of mucous and pus once in a while. It was three months down the road and still no results at all. She called all discouraged and she said she wanted to quit. She felt the cataracts had been with her to long and she would be blind forever. I told her, "Nothing doing. You keep right at it." I said that if she quit there would be no hope. Her only hope was to continue. She agreed to keep on going. Well, one week later she was in the bathroom and felt something funny in her eyes. She popped one eye open and started to rub it. She felt a small, hardened, slippery piece of tissue come off in her hand.
She looked in the mirror and was amazed. She could actually see herself! The EW had loosened the cataract and cause it to be thrown off. Two days later the cataract in the other eye came off. Gradually, over a two-month period, her vision improved and became sharper. Her case was unusual--it usually takes 5 months or more.
GLAUCOMA: This improves much more quickly. I have seen the pressure come down in many glaucoma patients within weeks. This wash cleans out the drainage ducts near the eye. When they are all cleaned out, the pressure will return to normal. It's that simple. I\e re\el' seen one glaucoma patient who didn't get dramatic results when they used the eyewash!
MYOPIA: (Nearsightedness). Lubeckes had a distributor who had worn glasses for 30 years. He faithfully used the wash three times a day and took EW internally. Within six weeks he was experiencing severe headaches so went to the doctor. His vision was now 20-20 after 30 years of needing correction. You can believe that he sold lots of EW as everyone wanted to know why he didn't wear glasses anymore.
EYE MAINTENANCE: One Manager had had surgery for cataracts and a detached retina and decided to use the herbal combinations for maintenance of the eyes. She washed with EW several times a day "whenever the eye felt gripey or scratchy" and used 4 EW internally. Within six weeks she had to return to her eye doctor to tell him that she couldn't see out of the lenses that he had prescribed for her. It seems that in the six week period her eyes had strengthened so much that a new correction, much weaker, was needed.
TO MAKE HERBAL EYE WASH
Empty 2-4 capsule of EW Combination into ½ - 1 cup boiling distilled or reverse osmosis water. Never use tap water. Remove from heat and steep for 10 minutes. (You will want to start out with less herb and work up.)
Pour solution through a coffee filter or unbleached muslin cloth (never use synthetic fibers when straining herbs). Store liquid in refrigerate. Discard after 3-5 days.
Pour a small amount into a glass eye cup (available at most pharmacies). Place the cup over one of the eyes and blink a few times. Rest for a few moments. Keep using the wash until you can blink about 20 times. Discard the liquid and start over for the other eye.
Your eyes might sting a bit at first, but the more times you use the wash, the easier it will be. Use the wash 2-3 times a day and try to keep your eyes open in the solution for longer and longer periods. Many people report surprising results with improve vision when they are persistent with the program.
If you wish to strengthen the eyes from the inside, you may want to consider adding EW Combination and Vitamin A & D to your daily diet
