Ginger is a phenomenal blood cleanser and taking it daily will make your blood supply very rich. It therefore strengthens your immune system.

Cooking ginger with onions and garlic is a nutritious combination. You can add these to your fish or chicken and it will taste absolutely delicious.
Dandelion is commonly found in English gardens and parks. Sadly, most people believe it is a weed and do all they can to get rid of it. It is in fact a medicinal herb that is great for our liver. This is food for your eyes. The flower and leaves of the dandelion can be eaten raw. The roots can be used as tea. In fact, in most health food stores, you will be able to find dandelion root tea or coffee. The reason why the dandelion is so nutritious is because the root system goes down six feet deep and is therefore able to absorb other minerals such as selenium, molybdenum and zinc that most other vegetables and herbs are unable to.
If you want great eyesight, you need to look after your liver. This is because, every four minutes, your liver is designed to filter 5 to 6 litres of blood. So the cleaner your liver, the cleaner your blood and this will enable nutrition to be distributed to your entire body. Eating at least 6 to 8 dandelion leaves daily will have a huge benefit to your overall health.
Garlic is part of the sulphur family of foods, which includes other foods such as red onions and spring onions. Eat it regularly to maintain a healthy immune system and therefore also results in healthy eyesight. Break the garlic and add a few cloves to your meals daily after removing the skin.
Flowering thyme is a herb that you can add to your meals. Eat it raw. You can also add it to your bread or if you are making garlic bread, you can add this to it as well. The flower is also edible. It is an easy to grow and maintain herb so there is no excuse for not having your own supply of flowering thyme. You need not have a garden space as you can easily have a pot of flowering thyme on your balcony or window sill. Place the pot in a sunny area and water it once every few days if the weather is not too hot.
Fennel is a perenial herb that belongs to the carrot family although it is not a root vegetable. It smells great and is very good for your stomach. You can use it to make a tea that can be drunk after a meal. It is super high in dietary fibre and potassium which is crucial for maintaining low blood pressure. It also contains Vitamin A, B6 and C, all of which are beneficial for our eyes.
Eating lots of green leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale and even broccoli may help delay the progression of cataracts, which is another degenerative disease amongst those above the age of 50. Eating foods rich in Vitamin C such as kiwis and citrus fruits may also prevent and slow down some eye conditions.
Having regular check ups, at least once a year with an Iridologist is also important so that any deterioration in health or potential problems can be picked up and addressesd sooner. Often when our major organs such as the liver or pancreas is weak, it will eventually affect other parts of your body including the eyes. We have also proven that a blockage in certain parts of your colon can also affect your eyesight. Some sight threatening conditions such as glaucoma have no symptoms and without regular check ups, you could lose your sight before noticing any difference.
Stop Smoking as smoking can double the risk of developing age-related macular degeneration and cataracts. These are the leading causes of sight loss as we age. Furthermore, smoking also results in a lot of fine lines around our eyes and mouth and affects our skin.
It is also important to be aware of your family history, especially if you are still living with your elders and following similar lifestyles and eating the same foods as they are. Some eye diseases are inherited and being aware of what these are can helo you determine if you are at higher risk of developing similar eye diseases.
