Hi there fellow Meowers,
It so happens that the great grandchild of Dr. Snellen (yes, that Dr. Snellen) is a patient of mine and handed me this book by Dr. Harry Benjamin recently:
It’s really amazing to read. It was first published in 1929, this guy improved his myopia from -20 with -3 cyl to somewhere around -2 to -3 dpt sph… Good food, fasting, taking cold showers, only eating something made from grains once a day (and it had to be whole grain), low sugar and starch, improved on bates, sometimes reduced lenses, pushing focus and rudimentary active focus are already utilized in this guide. This book is kind of a proto-endmyopia book. Much less elaborate of course and totally lacking any science in that day and age, but it’s really an awesome piece of work. There is so much sensible stuff in there and this is 90 years old, can you imagine that?
It’s a great read and humbling to see how some holistic and natural doctors where way ahead of their time.
