Boomer Health: To See or Not to See!

Aside from aging eyes, you might also find yourself suffering from eyestrain particularly if you spend a considerable amount of time in front of the computer. Long hours staring at a screen often cause us to forget to blink and replenish moisture to our eyes. 

Here are a couple of ways in which you can relieve eyestrain.

• Rub your hands together briskly for 10 seconds, generating heat. Close your eyes and place your palms over your eyes, resting the heels of your hands on your cheekbones and your fingertips on your forehead. Do not apply pressure.  Hold your hands in place for at least one minute while you relax your facial muscles and breathe deeply.  The deep breathing together with the warmth of your palms combines to relax the muscles around your eyes.

• Eye rolls.  Keeping your eyes open, roll them around in clockwise circles, then anti-clockwise circles.  Do each direction for about 15 or so rolls. Begin slowly and gradually increase your speed, ensuring that you roll your eyes in as wide a circle as you can.  This stretches and tones the eye muscles and increases blood circulation.

Boomer Health: Concerned about Swine Flu?

With all the press about swine flu, I thought I’d share what I would take if it seemed I might be exposed. This natural remedy would, in fact, be excellent for any type of flu. May not be the tastiest concoction for some folks but would definitely give the flu bug a “run for its money”!

The Master Tonic: A Natural Antibiotic

by Richard Schulze, University of Natural Healing
Based on a tonic by Dr. John Christopher

Raw unfiltered unbleached non-distilled apple cider vinegar
1 part fresh chopped garlic cloves
1 part fresh chopped white onion (or hottest onions)
1 part fresh grated ginger root
1 part fresh grated horseradish root
1 part fresh chopped cayenne peppers or the hottest peppers available, i.e. habanero, African Bird, or Scotch Bonnets, etc.

Fill a glass jar 3/4 of the way full with equal parts by volume (i.e. a cupful each) of the above fresh chopped and grated herbs. Then fill jar to the top with raw, unfiltered, unbleached, non-distilled apple cider vinegar. Close and shake vigorously and then top off the vinegar if necessary.

Shake at least once a day for two weeks, then filter the mixture through a clean piece of cotton (cheesecloth, old T-shirt, etc.), bottle and label. Make sure that when you make this tonic that you shake it every time you walk by it, a minimum of once per day. Remember that all the herbs and vegetables should be fresh (and organically grown if possible) and use dried herbs only in an emergency.

This tonic is extremely powerful because all the ingredients are fresh. Its power should not be underestimated.  It stimulates maximum blood circulation, while putting the best detoxifying herbs into the blood.

The dosage is 1/2 to 1 ounce, two or more times daily (1- 2 Tbs.). Gargle and swallow. (Don’t dilute with water.)

For ordinary infections, 1 dropper full taken 5-6 times a day will deal with most conditions. It can be used during pregnancies, is safe for children (use smaller doses) and as a food is completely non-toxic. Make up plenty as it does not need refrigeration and lasts indefinitely without any special storage conditions.

Ingredient properties:

– Garlic cloves (anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-parasitical)

– White Onion, or hottest onions available (similar properties to garlic)

– Ginger Root (increases circulation to the extremities)

– Horseradish Root (increases blood flow to the head)

– Cayenne Peppers, or the hottest peppers available – a great blood stimulant

– Probiotic – antiviral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-parasitical
