Eyes getting old?
Maybe age isn’t the problem. Maybe glasses aren’t the solution. What if you could improve eyesight naturally?
Improve eyesight naturally
Improve eyesight naturally with Claudia Muehlenweg, Bates Method Practitioner.
For Season 2, Episode 11 of the EatMoveLive52 Podcast, we take a deeper look at a subject we covered in Chapter 41 of our latest book, Eat Well, Move Well, Live Well – 52 Ways to Feel Better in a Week.
Yep, Chapter 41, and this podcast episode, are all about vision, and improving it without the use of glasses!
Before Claudia Muehlenweg became a Bates Method Teacher, she was a graphic designer, a field where good vision and perfect color perception are a necessity. But Claudia didn’t always have great vision.
Her interest to improve eyesight naturally came early on, because she wore glasses as a child — starting as a toddler up until the age of 15 — for far-sightedness and convergent squint (esophoria).
Like most kids with glasses, Claudia felt socially awkward, and hated not being able to see perfectly. To make matters worse, her blurry vision increased after wearing them, as did the merciless teasing in school.
As she became more active in sports, she wore the glasses as little as possible, and eventually began trying the Bates Method in the hopes of getting rid them altogether, and it worked!
No more glasses!
As a result of practicing the method from a book on her own and playing handball (hand-eye coordination), the eye doctor eventually declared that her “vision was normal and that she wouldn’t need her glasses anymore.”
By the time Claudia started college, she was a new person with new, sharper vision. Her new-found confidence ultimately helped her land a design job with one of the top advertising firms in Germany.
Much later, she decided to formally study the Bates Method and enrolled at the College of Vision Education in London, UK. In early 2010, Claudia became a Certified Bates Method Teacher. During the training, she started to teach in a low-cost vision clinic in London, as well as her own practice and have helped many people since improve their vision.
Her teaching lineage connects directly to Dr. Bates: One of her teachers, Margaret Montgomery, who has been teaching the Bates Method since 1985, was taught by Evelyn B. Sage in London, who was trained by Madeleine Fousset, a student of Dr. Bates. Claudia’s other teacher, Aileen Whiteford, is an expert in binocularity and eye dominance, something Bates himself didn’t focus on. With both the Bates teachings and the knowledge she gained in eye fusion and dominance from Aileen, she has the expertise to work with all kinds of eyesight challenges.
The information to improve eyesight naturally discussed in this podcast is for educational and informational use only and is not meant to replace medical advice. Do not order reduced strength glasses online without consulting an eye care professional or educating yourself about basic principles of eyesight and measurement of diopters. Without proper understanding of how to lower your diopter strength and how to read prescriptions, you can do more harm than good. But know that in the end, nobody cares about your eyesight as much as you do. Knowledge is power. Use this information to ask your optometrist the questions they don’t like to hear. And while this seems obvious, we want to make sure: Never drive a vehicle with reduced power lenses if they don’t give you at least 20/40 vision.
