Bilberry to Keep Your Vision Brilliant
Billberry is a fruit that many people have used to make delicious tarts, pies, and jellies. It tastes very similar to blueberries and looks similar to them, too. However, bilberry also has an important medicinal use – it actually supports good vision.
This is especially true for people who are dealing with the complications that come from diabetes. Bilberry is thought to be full of antioxidants that help to fight the effects of environmental pollution that can cause people to age at a faster rate. This is one way it’s thought to protect vision.
It helps to keep the connective tissue of the eyes intact. That means that they don’t degenerate as is common with age and disease. People who have problems of the eye such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degenerations have experienced great help from bilberry. It has slowed down the process of these diseases and actually has improved the function of the retina in some people.
People who suffer from cataracts may also find that bilberry is a good herb to take. It will prevent problems that come from cataracts and allow vision to be more vibrant and brilliant.
In addition to helping eyesight, bilberry is also used to treat problems with atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), bruising, and hemorrhoids. That’s because it works well to improve the circulatory system.
Bilberry is also a good remedy for problems with an upset stomach and diarrhea. It can also be used to treat problems with inflammation of the mouth, throat, and stomach. All in all, bilberry is a good antioxidant that reduces inflammation and improves circulation.
Bilberry can be taken in many ways. Some people choose to continue to use the fresh berries or dried berries for medicinal purposes. Berries can be extracted for their juice and dried berries can be crushed into a powder that can be used in a pill.
The dried fruit can be eaten by itself along with a glass of water as well. It can also be used as a mouthwash with a decoction of dried berry. When it comes to treating diarrhea, it’s important to use dried berries. Some people have found that the fresh berries actually make the condition worse instead of better.
If you suffer from diabetes or if you have other health problems that are contributing to poor eyesight, you’ll certainly want to keep bilberry on hand. It can actually prevent problems with vision.
Improving Your Vision with Eyebright
As its name suggest, eyebright is an herb that’s actually very specifically used. In the early 1100s, eyebright was used to treat all kinds of problems with the eyes. It was used in eyewashes and compresses to treat inflammations and sores in the eye. Flash forward a few hundred years later and herbalists continued to use it in the 1300s to treat eye problems. It was also used internally as syrup to treat eye problems.
Today, eyebright is still considered a good herb to use for eye problems. Using eyebright herb, herbalists create mixtures that can be used to treat inflammations of the eyes, also known as conjunctivitis.
When it comes to the eyes, there’s not much that eyebright can’t be used for. It can be applied as a treatment for sties, eyestrain, blepharitis, ulcers of the eye, and even light sensitivity. Eyebright is an all-purpose herb for the eyes.
For the eyes, most herbalists recommend an infusion of the herb that can be applied to the eye in an eyewash. However, eyebright is also available in a powder that can be taken internally.
Beyond your vision, eyebright can be used for a few other purposes. For example, eyebright infusions can be taken for allergies, sinus infections, coughs, and nasal inflammation. It can also be used to help settle the stomach. If your skin is irritated, a compress of eyebright can help to soothe it. For more serious problems such as eczema, eyebright can provide relief and promote healing.
Eyebright has many chemical compounds within it that actually work to fight bacteria and inflammation. When applied to the eye, the infusion is gentle enough to work on the delicate tissues.
It’s always fascinating when you find that an herb has stood the test of time – and eyebright is one herb that has done just that. It’s been used for over a thousand years to treat eye infections and disorders, and modern herbalists continue to use it for the very same purpose.
If you’re suffering from problems with your eyes such as infections or even just eyestrain, you should begin adding eyebright to your regimen. You can keep the powder in your cabinet as a preventive measure for the next time you have an eye irritation. When it comes to using eyebright, make sure to follow the manufacturer’s directions. Eyebright can be a safe, natural alternative to taking care of your eyesight when problems occur.
