Healthy eating is essential for healthy eyes. For example foods rich in lutein, a vitamin found in leafy greens such as kale, are thought to help delay the onset of AMD and Cataracts. Omega-3 is believed to help reduce your tendency of getting dry eyes and maintain healthier eyes into old age. Oily fish like mackerel, tuna and salmon are the best food sources for high levels of Omega-3. Zinc can help promote better vision and can be found in foods such as cheese, milk and poultry.
Overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) light for prolonged periods can seriously
damage your eyes and in some cases is responsible for causing retinal burning
and even blindness. UV light is known to increase risk of AMD and Cataracts. It
is imperative that on bright days sunglasses are worn. If you are feeling
discomfort from sun’s rays this may be a sign that your eyes are being damaged.
UV levels are at their highest between 10 am-2 pm so plan accordingly.
In fact smokers are four times more likely to develop AMD and smoking even
impairs the effectiveness of AMD treatment. In addition to this a smoker’s risk
of developing cataracts goes hand in hand with the number of cigarettes smoked those who smoke heavily are likely to develop more severe cataracts.
Can Yoga help relieve Back Pain? Many believe that suffering from back pain increases because of perception. Negative psychological and emotional factors may not necessarily change the physiology of the back, but may tend to magnify a problem that already exists. Thus, reducing the perception of the pain (such as through meditation) can reduce the overall feeling of back pain.
