Restore Your Eyesight Naturally

by Yohanan Burket

Cataract_Terminator_caption1There are numerous eye problems that can occur, with cataracts being the most common. Within the past few years, an amazing formulation using the amino acid N-Acetyl-L-Carnosine can actually extract the cataract out of the porous lens.

However, other eye problems exist that are unaffected by these special drops, such as retinal problems. This is because the retina is on the inside of the eye and is unreachable using any kind of eye drops. It is well known that many sufferers of cataracts may also have other eye problems, notably macular degeneration, which is caused by poor circulation in the capillaries of the eye, particularly around the retina. Diabetics are especially prone to macular degeneration, sometimes called diabetic retinopathy. This is especially true of those who have had diabetes for at least 10 years. Continue reading

Lower Your Blood Pressure Without Drugs

by Yohanan Burket

Blood PressureHigh blood pressure, also known as hypertension, is defined as the force that blood exerts on blood vessels. Blood pressure elevation is often caused by the buildup of plaque in arteries. Natural substances exist to correct this problem, notably Hawthorn berry, Ginkgo Biloba, and Olive Leaf. Olive leaf is especially good because it dilates your blood vessels, meaning it enlarges the diameter of your blood vessels. Of course this means more blood can flow more freely, lowering your blood pressure naturally. There is no need for stent surgery using this formula, and one does not need to and should not take prescription drugs for lowering blood pressure with all their side effects. Continue reading
