Q: I have terribly dry eyes and a condition called keratoconous. These two problems are making me very miserably uncomfortable. Do you know of any herbs/homeopathic remedies for either condition? Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
A: The first thing I would suggest to you is to stop referring to your eyes as “my sick eyes”. You have “eyes” (not “sick eyes”) that are experiencing temporary issues. The words that we speak are very important as they carry energy. One of the first steps on the road to healing from any dis-ease is to stop identifying with it. A lot of people tend to say “my diabetes”, “my cancer”, etc., which slows down their healing process.
To start the healing process of your eyes, it is essential to embrace a plant-based vegan diet (consuming as much raw foods as possible). All animal products, as well as processed foods, create mucus, which will negatively impact your eyes. Some of the best herbs for eye health include Eyebright, Callendula, and Billberry, which should be taken internally as well as applied externally by dipping a natural cotton ball into the tea and placing it on the eyes. A proper diet plus the herbal regimes, will help to keep the eyes moist as well as bring them to their natural balance and harmony.
