A Natural Approach To Health
Living With Colorblindness
I had a question the other day about colorblindness.
Two of the most complex organs of your body, your eyes provide you with instant visual feedback of the world around you.
Your eyeball is a sphere about 1″ in diameter and is covered by a tough outer layer called the sclera, or “white of the eye.”
Underneath the sclera is the middle layer of your eye, the choroid, which contains the blood vessels serving your eye.
The front of your eye is covered by a transparent membrane called the cornea.
Behind the cornea is a fluid-filled chamber called the anterior chamber.
Behind that is the pigmented iris, and in the center of your iris is the pupil.
Your eye also contains 2 important fluids.
On the outside of your eyeball are 6 muscles to move your eyes.
What we think of as the simple act of seeing is actually a complex, multistep process occurring continuously and at breathtaking speed.
Light enters your eye through your pupil, which changes size depending on the amount of light entering it.
As light enters your eye, it’s focused by the lens.
The lens becomes fatter or flatter depending on the distance to what you’re focusing on.
This image is sent by your optic nerve to your brain, which interprets the image.
One major contributor to eye trouble is poor diet, specifically the denatured, chemical- and preservative-laden foods most Americans eat daily.
A deficiency of just one vitamin can lead to many eye problems.
Supplementation with the correct vitamins and minerals can help prevent or correct eye trouble.
Colorblindness is a general term for the inability to see colors as most people see them.
Specialized cells in your retina known as cones, which translate light waves into a perception of color, may be completely or partially lacking, or may not function properly, resulting in colorblindness.
There are different types and severities of this condition.
Most colorblind people confuse certain colors (they may not be able to tell red from green, for example); in rare cases, they may see no color at all.
Some can distinguish colors only in certain lights.
There are also certain diseases, including pernicious anemia and sickle cell disease, as well as a number of different medications, that can cause disturbances in color vision.
Because few people are tested for color vision, colorblindness is probably an underdiagnosed condition, especially among women.
In most cases, colorblindness is present from birth, although the dimming of vision caused by cataracts can diminish your ability to distinguish colors later in life.
Colorblindness is passed on through the mother and is more common in males.
To deal with colorblindness it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily.
*Include the following in your diet: broccoli, raw cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, green vegetables, squash, sunflower seeds, and watercress.
*Eliminate sugar and white flour from your diet.
*Never use hair dyes containing coal tar on your eyelashes or eyebrows; doing so can cause injury or blindness. Although coal tar dyes are legal, marketing them for eyebrows isn’t.
*Avoid eyestrain and smoke-filled rooms.
*Eliminate toxic cosmetics, eye care, and personal care products.
*Eliminate chlorinated shower/bath water, which could be irritating.
