Dietary Treatments for Computer Eye Strain

[Music] what happens to our eyesight if we sit in front of a computer all day in previous years the rapid spread of computers and the home and workplace has led to an increase in ocular visual problems including eye discomfort blurring of distant objects eyestrain and visual fatigue so-called near work induced transient myopia and that’s when after staring at a computer screen for a while you look out the window and things start out all blurry that’s because our poor little ciliary muscles pulling at the lenses in our eyes are locked in this constant state of contraction to keep that near focus over the time this can have long-term adverse consequences yes we could waste the 4 to 12 minutes an hour taking breaks staring at the window but what if you’ve got nutrition videos to make the effects of blackcurrant intake on video display terminal work induced transient refractive alteration in healthy humans a double-blind placebo-controlled crossover study finding a significant improvement in refractive eyes and eye strain symptoms compared to placebo note what passes for currents in the US are actually champagne grape raisins not actual black currants which were banned in the US a century ago at the behest of the lumber industry for fear that they might spread a plant disease that affects white pine which we hardly even harvest anymore they are however currently making a comeback though any anthocyanin rich berry might have similar benefits for example there was a previous study done on Bill berries why didn’t I report on it when it came out because I can’t read Japanese why not just take bill berry powder capsules because if we’ve seen over and over when you test supplements you’re lucky if they have any of what it says on the label furthermore even for products actually containing bill berries at all labeling was often uninformed of misleading or both something the herbal supplement market is infamous for the largest study to date found that appears that most herbal supplement labels lie and who wouldn’t want to eat this rather than this it’s interesting bilberries gained notoriety during world war two when it was said that pilots in the British Royal Air Force were even bilberry Jam to improve their night vision it turns out this may have been a story concocted to fool the Germans the real reason the Brits were able to all of a sudden target Nazi bombers in the middle of the night before they even made it to the English Channel was likely not because of bilberries but because of a top-secret new invention they needed to keep quiet called radar [Music] you


  1. Goji and because it acts on the liver, chrysanthemum. Other liver foods and herbs like amla are likely also helpful. Really, you would have never discovered amla if it weren't for the studies. If living to 120 is your goal, try more untested ancient medicines. And read the original texts. Countless things not mentioned by modern chinese or Ayurvedic doctors. Read Hippocrates, Galen, "pseudo"-Aristotle and Celsus too.

  2. I love champagne black raisins and grapes. From bilberries to radar.  Thanks as always for the info and Happy New Year.

  3. I have been working with this problem and trying out different techniques for years, and have found something that really works: doing a baking soda mask after using the computer. There is plenty of information on this procedure in the internet for beauty purposes, etc., but it works wonders for computer fatigue, eye fatigue after computer use, feeling like a zombie after hours at the computer…

    You simply make a paste of baking soda and warm water and apply it to your face. Leave it on for about 5 minutes, maybe a little more, then wash it off. When I do this after hours at the computer, I feel like the tiredness in my face and head is completely lifted away, I feel totally refreshed, like new. The only side effect is that it dries your skin, so it is good to apply some moisturizer on your face afterwards. (I prefer warm sesame oil or warm olive oil for this purpose, as they're much healthier for the face than commercial moisterizers)

    Why does this work? Baking soda is known to suck away negative or harmful energies from the body; baking soda, or baking soda/salt, baking soda/epsom salt baths are well-known for this purpose. Not everyone might believe in such an apparently mysterious means of action. This doesn't matter, though, since it works whether one believes in it or not.

    Wishing good health, in spite of computer use! 🙂
