I had 20/20 vision all my life until I was 27 years old. I first noticed a problem while driving at night. It seemed like I was experiencing double-vision. So I went to an eye doctor and was told that I was nearsighted. I don't remember what my prescription was but the doctor told me I would need glasses to drive, go to the theater or any outside sporting events.
Since I was now wearing glasses, I had to go to the optometrist every two years to have my eyes checked. Sometimes my eyesight was worse, while other times it would be the same.
Eight years later, Paul and I married and he introduced me to juicing and taking whole-food supplements. I had never juiced before in my life, so I was not eager to jump on board. After watching him juice for a month or two, I decided to try it. I discovered I actually liked the taste of carrot juice (Green Giant carrots are my favorite). We juiced carrots almost every day (5 to 6 days a week).
A year and a half later, while driving to work one day, I noticed that my vision was blurry. I hadn't been to the optometrist for a couple of years so I naturally thought my eyesight had gotten worse. But for the heck of it, I took my glasses off to see how things looked. I found I could actually see better with my glasses off! I haven't worn them since (it's been 8 years now).
I credit the recovery of my eyesight to our juicing regimen as well as taking whole-food supplements. I haven't gone to the optometrist to have my eyes checked, but I'm sure they are 20/20. We are still juicing a blend of carrots, apples, celery and tomatoes as well as taking The Pops. Paul and I believe this is one of the foundations to good health.
