Quotes about Eyes from the world's top natural health / natural living authors

"The patient was so uncomfortable, though, that in an effort to relieve the symptoms one ophthalmologist tied off the return tear ducts so tears would linger in the eyes instead of finding their natural path into the nose. Somehow, he found his way to my office. At first I looked for rheumatic disorders that could cause dry eyes. Finding none, and considering the ophthalmologist's negative findings, this became a very challenging problem—that is, until I realized that he was obsessed with the dry eyes and very fearful of the gritty symptoms and redness that they caused."

"Are Your eyes Bigger Than Your Stomach? We have all used the saying "my eyes were bigger than my stomach" when we piled more food on our plate than we could eat. However, research has actually shown that your eyes determine the size of your stomach. Several studies have demonstrated that people will eat more food when more food is put in front of them, and yet feel no more satisfied than if they ate less."

"When genetic engineers shot "eve genes" from mice into fruit fly DNA, thev produced fruit flies with extra eyes, all right, but the eyes were all over the flies' bodies. The scientists were not able to predict or control how many extra eyes would exist or where they would appear. In fact, they created flies with eyes on their wings and legs.4 Those extra eyes were visible and obvious. We don't know what other changes took place in the flies."

"All Your Senses: Purpose of Your Eyes kland Nose 39 3: All Your Senses Have you ever heard the saying, "Your eyes are bigger than your stomach?" This means that with all the food your eyes can see, what you might desire to eat is so much more than could ever fit into your stomach. This saying also hints at the important ways in which your senses can affect your eating habits. You can do many things that impact or protect your digestive tube by looking at your food before it ever touches your lips. This can make all the difference between feeling sick and being healthy."

"LaShekia's mother, Renita, recalls feeling as though she were watching her daughter "die before my eyes." LaShekia sometimes overheard her mother speaking in hushed, worried tones with her friend Kayla's mom over coffee at the Chat-mans' kitchen table. The two moms were close friends and had more in common than they might have liked: like LaShekia, Kayla had been growing increasingly unwell. For months, Kayla had been experiencing severe lethargy and debilitating headaches. Then she woke one morning and had trouble seeing out of her right eye."
- Donna Jackson Nakazawa, The Autoimmune Epidemic (Get the book.)

"In order to infect an individual, germs must reach the eyes or the nose—usually by way of our own fingers. More than a third of Americans say they seldom or never wash their hands after coughing or sneezing. The average American washes his or her hands fewer than seven times a day, and 70 percent of Americans wash their hands for less than twenty seconds, the amount of time recommended by the Centers for Disease Control for a hand-washing session. (One trick: wash your hands for as long as it takes to mentally hum your ABCs—that's twenty seconds."

"Other symptoms include impaired ability to hear, talk, or speak clearly; difficulty writing, reading or seeing clearly; red earlobes or cheeks; wriggly legs; and dark circles under their eyes. "If you suspect that your child may have been exposed to neurotoxic substances—those that actually damage the nervous system—ask your doctor to send you to specialists who can tell you whether the nerve conduction time in your child's body is normal or not," Dr. Rapp says. "They can do a variety of blood tests to find out if the chemicals that are in the carpets and the adhesives are in the blood."

"I had conjunctivitis in both eyes. I had open sores. I was so weak that I was almost bedridden. I found another doctor, who slowly weaned me off of the prednisone. But, my immune system had been damaged. I had a lot of viral illnesses that are usually associated with chronic fatigue syndrome. I could scarcely get out of bed, and I couldn 't lose all the weight I had gained. I went from doctor to doctor. Many of them said, "Your metabolic system has been altered by prednisone. Too bad, but you will never lose that weight. Too bad, but your immune system has been damaged."

"They throw out their lower lip and their eyes are half-shut and they look as if they are going to kill you. I've seen this in three-year-old children who eat the wrong food, or if we just take one drop of an allergy extract containing a substance to which they are sensitive and prick their arm with it. "We have videotapes documenting what we're talking about."

"One might be particularly good at mapping out the site and describing the architectural and topographical features; another would concentrate on the sensory 'feel' of the target; yet another would focus on the behavior of the target experimenter, or describe what he was feeling and seeing, as though he was somehow transported and able to see out of the target person's eyes.24 Many of the viewers operated in 'real time' as though they were somehow there, experiencing the scene from their target subject's point of view."

"Ingo closed his eyes and concentrated for 45 seconds. For the same length of time the machine's output device stopped creating equidistant hills and valleys: the graph traced one long plateau. Ingo said he was letting go; the machine returned to its normal S-curve. He explained that by looking into the machine and concentrating on various parts, he was able to alter what the machine did. As he spoke, the machine again recorded a double frequency and then a double dip ?which Ingo said had something to do with his concentrating on the niobium ball inside the machine."

"Their eyes didn't know how to interpret this hyperstate of vision. Nothing lived, but also nothing was hidden from view, and everything lacked subtlety. Every sight overwhelmed the eye with brilliant contrasts and shadows. He was seeing, in a sense, more clearly and less clearly than he ever had. During the relentless activity of their schedule, there had been little time for reflection or wonder, or for any thoughts of a larger purpose to the trip."

"Although the tools scientists like Gilbert and her team have to understand how autoimmunity is triggered by exposures at the cellular level have improved in recent years, they still remain fairly crude, explains Gilbert, a willowy woman whose sweeping red bangs frame piercing brown eyes. They are crude, she says, "because the field of im-munotoxicology itself is still so new." So new that ten years ago, when Gilbert first came to the Arkansas Children's Hospital, few researchers were experts in both immunology and toxicology; indeed, an experienced immunotoxi-cologist was hard to find."

"Do you have dark circles under your eyes? ? Do you often feel stressed or anxious? ? Do you have allergies to various household products, dust, and molds? ? Do you have eczema, dry skin, acne, or rashes? ? Do you gain weight easily? ? Do you have food cravings, especially carbohydrate-rich foods and/or sweets? ? Do you have pain or discomfort on the right side of your stomach occasionally or after eating? ? Are you constipated or do you have less than one bowel movement per day? Do you have any of the following symptoms: ? Sensitivity to perfume or other chemical odors ?"

"It had long been well appreciated that the magnetic treatment involved quite close contact between the (male) magnetizer and the (often female) patient (stroking the thighs, trailing fingers just ever the face, breathing on the eyes, etc.). Now, though, the commissioners were suggesting real reasons for concern about the effects of these mesmeric intimacies on public manners and morals."

"You have cells that allow your heart to beat, your brain to think, your immune system to fight disease and injury, your body to move, your eyes to see, your fingers to feel, and so on and so forth. Detoxification is an important function that goes on every second in every cell, and it's arguably the body's central generator for your overall wellness. Because it helps to have an understanding of how detoxification happens within the body automatically (i.e."

"AMINO ACIDS These are the building blocks of protein. Our eyes look at food in different ways, but our bodies look at food in only one way. While we see a steak, a pizza, and a Caesar salad as different foods, our bodies see each as just a blend of energy in the form of protein, fat, and carbohydrates. Once we eat, our bodies go to work breaking down our meals into smaller units of energy that are transported into the bloodstream to provide the fuel we need to operate."

"EYES (Not shown) Hold the head still and make wide circles in the air in front of you, first with one hand, then the other, following your hands with the eyes. Repeat, closing the fist and making circles with one finger, following the finger with the eyes as you trace large circles clockwise then counterclockwise, first with one hand, then the other. Repeat 6 times each way. Then turn on the bouncer until you are squarely facing one wall. Again, holding the neck and head still, look from the upper right corner of the wall you are facing to the lower left corner, MOVING THE eyes ONLY."

"Her hair was combed back revealing her bronzed forehead and alert, green eyes. Her smooth hands lay serenely folded in her lap. At her feet, her 77-year-old daughter, Kikue, and best friends, 90-year-old Setzu Taira and 96-year-old Matsu, sat cross-legged on tatami mats. Kikue, who I later learned was very protective of her mother, dutifully poured me a green tea. I began to ask questions. Since I'd visited Ushi with Sayoko, Ushi had taken her first paying job, tried to run away from home, and had begun wearing perfume. "Perfume?" I asked. "She has a new boyfriend," Setzu offered. "

"Tonino's wife, Giovanna, a heavyset woman with quick, intelligent eyes, sat at the table. She offered us wine. ("No thank you" was not an option.) Tonino may have ruled the butcher shed, but Giovanna ruled the house. I posed questions to Tonino, and she answered them. "Tonino lives to work," she told me, with her husky arms folded, "from early morning to late night. Look at him; he's aching to get back to butchering the cow right now." Sure enough, Tonino was drumming his fingers impatiently on the table; his eyebrows arched guiltily when his wife pointed at him. "

"But when my nephew, who was a failing student, leaned over to say how much he was going to miss her, Nona opened her eyes and said, Tm not going anywhere until you're done with the university.' Nona got better and my nephew went back and graduated." It would be hard to overestimate the importance of family in the Blue Zone. According to Dr. Luca Deiana, who has studied centenarians for more than a decade, some 95 percent of those who live to 100 in Barbagia do so because they have a daughter or granddaughter to care for them."

"One student was reading from a Bible; another had her eyes shut and was reciting it from memory; two others were only occasionally chiming in, and mostly doing can-can kicks in clownish, spontaneous choreography. It was an ad hoc, perhaps fleeting community, and everyone seemed happy. It reminded me of what Marge Jetton had told me about why she volunteered so much: "Because it makes me feel good," she'd said. "Don't you like to help people up when they need a hand?"

"Now I see the crevices and cracks in the rocks and the holes at the base of the trees, the homes of those who live here. My eyes can see clearly, this is where the nature spirits live. That is why this place has always seemed so vibrant, so teeming with life, and so special. I feel blessed in this moment to have been shown their faces. Journal Entry, March 2006 At the foundation of the triple spiral path of Plant Spirit Healing is spiritual ecology. Within this path there is recognition that spiritual ecology does indeed exist and that a balance within this ecology is maintained."

"Modern scientists mostly understand how we have blue eyes or grow to six foot one, and even how cells divide. What is far more elusive is the manner by which these cells know exactly where to place themselves in each stage of the building process, so that an arm becomes an arm rather than a leg, as well as the very mechanism which gets these cells to organize and assemble themselves together into something resembling a three-dimensional human form."

"But are they any different in the eyes of the Universe? Both are experiments in design. Both result from eons of evolution. The different way we perceive many human artifacts stems from the effects they have on the world. When these effects do not seem to be in harmony with the rest of nature, we regard them as "unnatural." But the reason they do not harmonize with nature is that the thinking that governs their creation and use is not in harmony with the rest of nature."

"The malnutrition of the eyes and appurtenant tissues makes it especially difficult to see well under trying conditions, especially at night. There is difficulty in tolerating bright lights and often there is an itching, burning, and dryness of the eyes, perhaps accompanied by dancing specks and flashes. The impaired vision is usually accompanied by eyestrain, often with the presence of sticky secretions and granulations in the eyes. Often there is an inflammation of the delicate membrane which lines the lids and covers the eyeball, the condition termed conjunctivitis."

"I remember the man who smoked cigarettes through his eyes, and then there was the one who 115 drove six-inch spikes into his head. That was great stuff) I, of course, believed all of it—or at least most of it. Believe it or not, there is an official Ripley web site that recounts all this rigmarole. Browsing it, I learned that Ripley's did not disappear with my childhood. Indeed, in 2002, they opened a museum in Kuala Lumper. Now all the Malaysian kids can see firsthand what I learned as a child. Researching this chapter, Fran and I were reminded of Ripley. For example..."

"Since she is traveling forward, shouldn't the lightening from the engine strike her eyes before that of the caboose? But place a second observer off the train, standing on the tracks. How will she perceive the double lightning strike? In another oft-quoted experiment, Einstein imagined an elevator falling at almost the speed of light, inside which a passenger tosses a ball in the air and watches it fall. Such thought experiments were not only used by the greatest physicists of the twentieth century, but also used fruitfully."
