As a Master Herbalist, I get requested to assist with a various assortment of aliments and issues. Many of which are simple and easy while others are more detailed and involved. Normally my training and experience comes into quick
action and solutions are rapidly put into place. However, I found myself asking “What do you do when you’ve done everything right, but a glaring issue comes up to which you find yourself blindsided? “
This happened one fine spring day when my 8-year-old son came to me “reporting” he was seeing doubles of various objects in about a
4 ft radius from him. Having NEVER heard of this before, and having no family history of eye issues, he was then nicely interviewed by myself in a long series of questions that lasted several days. At his annual eye exam, nothing appeared wrong, and he was sent home with no further due action. However, as a concerned parent, I KNEW something was not as it should be. His diet was excellent, elimination good, regular cleansing programs followed, exercise was on check, no injuries or anything out
of the blue. What could it be?
Let me advise you to NOT randomly search on the internet. Results are designed to scare you into all kinds of silliness - with a very impacting impression. Having done this, however, I then decided to reach out to my team of Master Herbalists for help. I frequently thank God that the School of
Natural Healing keeps their phone lines open. Kelly Pomeroy answered the phone and put many of my fears at ease, explaining that she “has also walked a similar path, there is hope and help, and rest assured, you can handle this.” She put me in touch with Vision Therapy and gave a phone number to her local therapist. Upon calling this lovely office, they put me in touch with a few choices in my area. Quickly reaching out to a local office, I was met with more reassurance that all will be well, it
is common, and there is a program to retrain the eyes.
We started the therapy which included eye tracking, special video games, eye exercises, covering one eye, then the other, then training together. The program was strict, intensive, and exhaustive at many times as he was exercising for 20-30 min a day every day for weeks
at a time. With knowledge on how the body works, I placed my son on the SNH eye food program making sure his diet was very specific to his eye needs. We also used eye corrective herbs and the Herbal Eye Formula as an eye wash 3x a day. These protocols can be found here
At the end of his first 8-week session, he had the most remarkable improvement. The office had never seen someone retrain their eyes so quickly. He was off the chart in several areas. A
little more direction was needed in focusing from short to long distance, so another 8 weeks was given to him continuing on with all our work at home. At the end of this session, he was reading/comprehending at a college grade level and had quicker response times than most adults. Praise and Glory be to God!
My hope and
encouragement to you today is to remind you that The Good Lord knows that we cannot go through life alone. He has provided people, resources, programs, herbs, and most importantly Himself to help us walk through this amazing journey of life. Even when you think you may not know which direction to go, there is a community out there of like minds. Let’s reach out and lend a helping hand whenever we can, be there to support those who may be in the dark and lead them in the path they should
