Raw & Improved Vision? Or sound?

germin8germin8 Raw Master

I read Paul Nison’s book… Raw Truth… where he interviews other long-time raw foodists. One of the questions was about vision on a raw diet. They said their vision improved. Some of the interviewees mentioned the Bates method. I don’t know anything about this… and not sure I would ever try it. But… I’m wondering if anyone out there has noticed an improvement in their vision… whether night vision… or improvement between switching to/from dark and light… or overall better vision (maybe even 20-20).

Oh yeah, and what about about hearing? I haven’t heard much about this… but I’m wondering if the range is increased.

    One of my biggest wishes is to see my vision improve! My vision is horrible and it’s been bad since I was about 10 years of age. It kills me having to depend on these damn contacts :(

    I’m really curious to see if anyone has any interesting answers to this! I’d love to have some hope for my vision!

    My wish would be improve my hearing. I have moderate hearing loss in both ears and sometimes have to wear hearing aids. It is very restricting and inconvenient – more so than having sight problems (and I have had both).

    And I have heard of a few raw foodists who said they had hearing loss and it improved after being raw for a while. Also to get rid of my tinnitus.

    I have heard there are exercise you can do to rid your self from glasses or contracts. For me, I got my eyes lasered years ago – I had really bad astigmatism and now my eyesight is almost 20/20. Best thing I ever did. Funny how a few years after had I started needed hearing aids (I don’t think it is related to the lasering though – I started having hearing problems before that)

    I wish the same could be done for hearing. :(

  • My father recently decided to try raw (yay!!) and after a few weeks he noticed his vision was better (brighter colors, clearer.. he thought he was going crazy!). The ringing in his ears also stopped. This is something hes had for years and years. He was really surprised by this and is sure its all results of switching over to raw.

    Personally, i havent noticed any improvements in either my hearing or my vision, and ive been raw since March. <shrug> so there must be another contributing factor – but i have no idea what!

    Thanks for your comments. I’ve only heard that a raw diet improves vision & sight… but never met anyone who experienced it. It’s nice to know it can help… even if it is not everyone.

  • I think before I went raw my vision was 20/40? maybe? I had it checked recently, after almost three months raw and lots and lots of kale smoothies..and it’s 20/30 now. Regardless of the numbers, I’ve definitely experienced an improvement.

    i need to get my eyes tested, but i am beginning to suspect that my sight has changed. i wear glasses all the time, and lately i’ve noticed that my eyes feel tired, but i’m not tired at all, so i’m thinking my glasses need to be changed.

  • I’ve worn glasses for about 3 years, I could see okay without them but if I didn’t wear them my eyes would feel tired and I’d get headaches. Since eating raw foods I would say I wear my glasses 80% less than I used to. For things like driving and reading I prefer to wear them and once in a while I feel I need them but for the most part my eyes feel worse when I’m wearing them.

    I went to the eye doctor and my vision changed a whole diopter. I didn’t look into it exactly at the time but it changed for the better. I have heard that tininitis can be caused by a vitamin deficiency. I have excellent smell and hearing- usually better than the people around me. Eating beets and other veges can clean the blood which can reduce or eliminate deposits that cause macular degeneration and artheriosclerosis. So this is a great topic to hear from people on.

  • After my 6 weeks only fruit diet, several fast and a diet of almost 100% raw since 2002, my vision did improve. I never went to the doctor to have it checked, so I do not have hard evidence, but I can tell you I did have a diagnosed night vision issue. I needed glases, specially at night, with a very low correction, what is that? 0,25? or something like that? I needed it also when working in front of the computer with a light over my head (from the sealing). After those 6 months of completely raw diet and several short fast in 2002, I never have needed my glasses again. I can ride my auto in the night and I do not have that night vision issue anymore. I am typing here in front of the computer with a light hanging from the sealing in front of my and I do not have any issues. I see very good. I did read in my Natural Hygiene course in Natural Health from fitforlife.com that eye vision could improve to a certain point. There are some damage the body cannot repair. The healing capabilities of the body are not unlimited. It will heal what it has not permanently be damaged if the right conditions are given. Raw eating is one of them. Pure water, distilled water, sunshine, fresh air, rest and sleep, relaxation, emotional poise, recreation, no unneeded stress are among the others.

    That’s great to hear jirizarry. Thanks for sharing.

    Would drinking beet juice daily help as much as eating the beets? I make a cleansing juice that has a beet in it so I end up “drinking” 1-2 beets daily.
