When it comes to supplements, quality matters. Many manufacturers are either ignorant, or they just don't have the resources to maintain proper quality control. Low quality supplements could do you more harm than good.

That's why I only recommend professional-grade products that are 3d party tested. These manufacturers encourage independent 3d party certification. Get peace of mind knowing that what's inside the bottle matches what's on the label.

Can you improve your eyesight and throw out your glasses after 40? Longtime airline pilot David Sandstrom and Natural Vision Improvement coach Carl Vigilante say “absolutely.” In this week’s interview, the dynamic duo share their personal accounts of ditching bifocals to regain youthful 20/15 vision in their 60s using drug-free, natural techniques.

Around his 40th birthday like clockwork, David’s vision began deteriorating. By 42, he nearly flunked an airline medical exam with 20/70 sight. Unwilling to fly with cumbersome glasses, he discovered pioneering ophthalmologist Dr. Bates’ Relaxation-Based Vision Improvement program. After just 8 weeks of “eye yoga” and ditching his glasses, David measured a shocking 20/20, and even 20/15 sight on good days — his best vision ever.

Carl has helped hundreds restore their natural eyesight clarity after his own frustration with reading glasses and blurred vision hit in nursing graduate school. He experienced spontaneous healing after 3 weeks immersing in Bates’ principles. Carl coaches us through beginner modules — palming, swinging, movement — designed to relax rigid eyes stuck in a stress loop.

Learn why vision decline is not inevitable, plus sustainable ways to relax, breathe, blink, and flex atrophied eyesight back into shape. If LASIK surgery seems extreme, try tapping your natural visual potential. As living proof, Carl and David haven’t touched their prescription glasses in years thanks to a more holistic vision care approach.
