In 1991, through a routine eye exam, my wife Laura discovered she was
nearsighted. She had to start wearing glasses to drive her car, go to a movie,
or watch a sporting event. Eight years later, we met and eventually were
Because of my prior interest in nutrition, my wife and I soon purchased a juicer. Needless to say, she was not impressed with the idea of having to drink carrot juice. Nevertheless, we faithfully drank our fresh, raw vegetable juice in the morning, three to four times per week, sometimes more.
In addition to drinking the juice almost every day, my wife also began taking concentrated nutrition in the form of whole food supplements. I mention these things because of the changes that began to take place in our family. We started to feel better and have more energy. Our son, Dylan, was never out of school due to sickness and Laura and I never missed a day of work because of illness.
About a year or so after our family began drinking carrot juice and taking concentrated whole-food supplements, my wife put on her glasses one day and everything was blurry. She thought her eyesight had gotten worse. But when she took her glasses off, she found that she could see clearly. It's been eight years since that day and her vision is still 20/20.
Eye doctors will tell you that they just don't see eyes spontaneously improve. In fact, the opposite is true. Most people have to get a stronger prescription for their glasses as the years go by. So why did my wife's eyesight improve?
Whenever the body is sick or needs to make repairs, it first has to have something to work with - nutrition. Otherwise, slowly but surely, the body will begin to deteriorate.
That's why it's important to make sure you're getting the recommended nine servings of fruits and veggies every day.
