Hello! I hope you’ve had a good week!
We’ve had a wonderful time with our son, Cooper, here helping us get our feet wet with our new website, www.CTRVital.com, for the tea in capsule form packaged especially for missionaries. What a thrill it is to watch this all begin to unfold to bless so many lives in so many ways and in so many places around the world.
Cooper’s not the only addition to our household this week. We have yet another family of robins in the most popular nest in town located in the eves of our front porch. Our joke is that we’re going to start charging rent, as this is at least the 4th family of robins in less than two years to take up residence with us here in beautiful Jackson, Tennessee.
Hey — why work to build a home if you can move into something ready made? We love it!
Who doesn’t look for an easier way? Today’s article — all about an easier way — is all about the tea for vision health and how I buy my prescription transition bifocals (priced at well over $300 at even Walmart and Costco) for less than $90!
Have a fun weekend and enjoy today’s helpful and money-

One of the most delightful parts of sharing the tea through the years continues to be meeting the most wonderful people and our conversations with them.
One of the first to come our way, back in 2008, was a cute senior citizen, Dorothy, living in Georgia. The tea did such an incredible job for weight loss and regularity for her and several members of her family. It also helped her give up coffee! (The tea can be so helpful with managing cravings ….)
In another conversation, however, she made my day when she reported that for a long timeher vision had felt like she was “looking through filmy water spots … like the ones on drinking glasses from an old dishwasher. This cleared up very quickly after starting the tea! She even felt like her peripheral vision had improved.
At about the same time I was on a phone call with a man who reported that, strangely enough … his vision had also improved and that he was not only seeing more sharply, but that colors were much more vibrant!!!!
Remembering those conversations, and with great gratitude for my own vision, I’ve done a little research on how drinking the tea could possibly affect vision. I think you’ll be as delighted as I am! For vision health … look to the liver!
Liver Health and Vision … and Prescription Bifocals for Under $90
My kids are still joking about how I had glasses all over the house — and I did! I had them to match every outfit and had a great time with them as an accessory.
Then the time came that I needed more help and prescription bifocals.
I paid over $300 for those first couple of pairs, first at Walmart, then at Costco. Pricey, indeed, but absolutely necessary.
Knowing, like our little robins, that there must be a better way, I got brave and started checking out the online stores for ordering prescription glasses as the prices seemed to be much different. The reviews were pretty good! My optometrist was not overly impressed (they had a store there for glasses, and I’m sure she didn’t want to hear I was shopping elsewhere.)
I found a website that allowed you to upload your photo and try on glasses! Now this was fun in and of itself! They also had a 30 day guarantee that if you weren’t happy … you got your money back.
With a prayer, I plugged in my prescription and called the 1-800 number to make sure I’d done it right. The total was just over $80!!!! I was thrilled, so I ordered. When they came a week or so later, they were great — but within hours I had a headache. I was so sad.
I took them to the Walmart optometrist and asked if they saw a problem.
They examined them and said “No — we would have created just the same. In looking at your prescription and comparing to last time you ordered here, the problem is that these are much stronger ! Your headache is from getting used to them! Just wear them a few hours each day and your eyes will adjust.”
Sure enough: It WORKED and I’ve been buying my $300 glasses for $80 for YEARS now from eyebuydirect.com. I’ve even ordered for other people who are equally thrilled!

Now, for the TEA and vision!
For Health For The Eyes, Look to the Liver
A little research has lead me to a true “aha!” moment for something I’ve been wondering about for years: how could the tea affect your vision?
The answer is in what Dr. Miller has been telling us all along:
A clean colon equals clean blood. Clean blood flowing to your organs means that they are ALL much healthier and cleaner as well, especially the LIVER! In fact, some people think of the tea as a liver cleanse as well as a colon cleanse.
I found this fascinating article at www.rebuildyourvision.com.
On first glance, the eyes and liver have nothing in common. But according to Dr. Marc Grossman, O.D., L.Ac (author, lecturer, and consultant to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point), in traditional Chinese medicine—a discipline that goes back more than 2 millennia—all diseases involving the eye are closely related to the liver.
Blurry vision, Myopia, floaters in the eyes, dry eyes, or color blindness have been linked to liver blood deficiencies. Liver blood deficiency can be caused by scarring of the liver or anemia. Both of these problems prevent the flow of blood through the liver. Blood from the liver is believed to moisten and nourish the eyes.
Bloodshot eyes, pain, and burning sensations in the eyes are linked to liver heat. Liver heat is usually associated with an inflammation in the liver.
Your eyeball turning upwards or moving involuntarily has been linked with internal liver wind. Internal liver wind is normally associated with extreme heat in the liver. This can be caused by extreme high blood pressure or emotional stress.
Strange as it may seem, your liver and your eyes really are linked in many ways.
Echoing the core principle of holistic medicine, Dr. Grossman declares, “The body does not work as a series of parts in isolation, but as a dynamically integrated living system. Every cell in the body has receptors for neurotransmitters, so in a real sense every cell is a nerve cell.… This biological awareness of every cell is really the foundation of vision.”
The webzine Natural News further explains: “A healthy liver is soft and open. This softness permits the free flow of blood and energy throughout the body directly to the eyes. A healthy liver keeps the blood clean and pure and thus directly improves eyesight.” Thus, when we rejuvenate the liver, we directly promote healthy vision. And the good news is, it’s actually quite easy—though maintaining a healthy liver is about more than just laying off the champers.
Natural News calls diet the “foundation of all rejuvenation regimes” and notes that beta carotene – found in carrots, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, dark green leafy vegetables, cantaloupe, squash, and cabbage—is a powerful immune booster. As well, leafy greens cleanse the blood and eliminate liver inflammation. Notable liver-regenerating herbs include burdock, taraxacum, barberry, scute root, and nettle. (You can purchase these in the form of easy-to-use liver-cleansing products at many drug- and grocery stores.)
If, like many other people, you are unable to incorporate all the healthy foods you need in your normal everyday diet, you may want to consider a vision improving vitamin supplement. This way you will know without all the figuring and measuring that you are getting the right amounts of the antioxidants that your body needs on a daily basis.
You may know these better as antioxidants. Two strong antioxidants that provide help in removing free-radicals from our liver and eyes are lutein and zeaxanthin. Both of these antioxidants are found naturally in our eyes. They are found in relatively high concentrations in the lens and retina of the eyes.
Lutein and zeaxanthin act to protect our eyes from damaging ultra-violet blue light. As we age it is important to make sure that our bodies have these antioxidants to protect the eye. With proper amounts of lutein and zeaxanthin it is possible to prevent the development of age-related macular degeneration.
Another important antioxidant for both the liver and the eye is alpha-lipoic acid or ALA as it is often referred to. This antioxidant has been shown to help prevent cataracts in the eyes and helps to dissolve toxic substances in the liver.
Traditional Chinese medicine holds that, to function optimally, the eyes require an abundance of yin essences (blood and other bodily fluids that moisten and nourish the organs and tissues).
In this view, dry eyes reflect a yin deficiency. Natural News recommends combating dry eyes with such classic herbs as eyebright and goldenseal, which are very effective in clearing inflammation from the liver channel. Chinese herbs such as rehmannia and lycium also promote eye health by refreshing and maintaining the blood, as well as the yin essence that circulates to the eyes.
Dr. Grossman also advocates saying good-bye to carbonated, caffeinated, and alcoholic beverages, and instead drinking 8 to 10 glasses of purified water a day to hydrate your eyes. Excessive caffeine and alcohol are very hard on the liver. Sclerosis of the liver is just one problem that is associated with excessive alcohol use. Water on the other hand helps to flush impurities out of our bodies.

Isn’t that fascinating? Once again our whole-food plant based diet has a direct bearing on EVERY aspect of our health … and our herbal tea helps clean the liver through the preliminary cleansing of the colon for a clean supply of blood.
Well, with that happy thought, knowing that we not only FEEL better but SEE better with the benefits of the tea, I hope you have a pretty Spring weekend. Go for a walk with a dear one and see the flowers in your neighborhood!
