Better vision is more than 20/20

*as exerpt from Martin Sussman's book "The Program for Better Vision."
"The eyes do not exist in isolation. They are an integral part of your total being affected by-and affecting-the body, mind and emotions in a profound way.
All parts of the visual system-the eyes, the muscles around and in the eyes, the nerve pathways to the brain and the visual centers of the brain-are very delicate and require a high degree of precision, coordination and flexibility to perfom optimally. Since it is such a delicate system it is very sensitive to stress, tension and fatigue of any kind, whether it's physical, emotional or mental. The visual system is also very sensitive to any nutritional deficiencies and imbalances that might be present in the body.
a holistic model of Better Vision includes these three components:
1. Physical eyesight
2. Inner vision (imagination, visualization, memory, dreams and attitudes)
3. Emotional seeing (expression of how we feel and a way to connect to other people..."Eyes are the window to the soul).
Vision problems often appear when there is both prolonged stress in the visual system and improper visual/muscular habit patterns.
Glasses and contacts treat the symptoms of poor vision very effectively. But glasses/contacts do not address the underlying factors that produced the vision problem."
There is an incredible amount of SOLID facts and research performed by the Cambridge Institute for Better Vision found in this book and the program that is available. See the above link for details!!!!
Having been plagued with so-called poor vision since the age of 2 I had once thought I would permanently have a weakness there. I soon discovered in the training and holistic approach we have maintained, that our body has the power to heal itself under the right conditions.....this of course would include our vision. When I was given this website I decided there was certainly nothing to lose. I'm just starting the program. I will keep you all posted with my progress!!!
Wish me luck:)
