Eye test March 2013

One year after my previous eye test when the results showed a defintive improvement in both eyes: from -4.0 to -2.75. This time I had hoped to see further improvement. Well there were small changes to be seen but on the whole the change was not enough to shout about. In any case it was not...

Holiday Greens!

It is impossible to find a hotel online which serves green smoothies. At least I have not yet found a hotel this way. Being away from home is challenging at best of times but without smoothies it can be daunting. But over the years I have found a way to stick to my diet. I...

Healthy eyes

Besides improving my eye-sight with a healthy diet and a daily portion of green smoothie I am probably, or should I say definitely, protecting myself from age related eye diseases. Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) conducted by the National Eye Institute in 2001 and 2005 looked for possible benefits of Nutrition on Macular Degeneration. Results of the these...

Improve your eyesight

Summer of  2003, when I had my last eye test, the left eye was -4.0 and the right eye was -3.75 and a certain amount of astigmatism, rotation of the eye, in both eyes. My favourite optometrist, Meena, tested my eyes last week to see if they had improved. And guess what, the latest results showed that left...

Superfoods: health benefits

It is true folks, Tesco supermarket packaging in the UK labels fresh spinach a SUPERFOOD. On the other side it gives instructions to microwave, stir fry, steam and boil spinach in 2-3 minutes. By the way Tesco forgets to mention that spinach can also be eaten raw in a salad or blended in a green smoothie....

Daily vitamin supplements

First book that put me on the path to healthy living was ”Why animals don’t get heart attack but people do” by Dr. Rath.
