I’m Laurens, a 35 year old Dentist. In the start of 2016 I became aware of the extensive danger that sugar poses to our overall health (not just our teeth). Since then, slowly but surely we’ve completely switched over to a whole food based diet pretty much kicking all free’d up and processed fructose (the sweet part of the sugar molecule) out. We love every minute of it and we never felt better.
After that, reading books and all, one becomes aware of other natural ways to improves ones health. I got a reference to the Bates Method and eye exercises. It seemed too much of a hassle. Then I (of course) ended up here @ endmyopia. I was astounded. The free 7-day course is such an (pun intended) eye opener. Everything Jake explains is right on the money.
I enrolled in backto2020. I’m a DIY kinda guy, however, Jake figuring this stuff out, I thought he actually had to get some credit for it.
I’ve had glasses since the age of 18. Contact lenses mostly. On the 13th of January (2018) I became aware of endmyopia. -3.75 back then both eyes, no astigmatism. It’s now half a year later and last saturday my optometrist confirmed me @ -1.25 for 20/20 on Snellen and -1.5 for full prescription.
I’m working on normalizing -1 right now and once that one clears up the jump back to 20/20 will start.
Jake asked me to join the Facebook group. Not my thing, Facebook is an adversary to real life IMO and a big contributor to myopia everywhere.
I’d like to help out, share my journey and hopefully contribute to others improving their eyes and perhaps even their health in general. More on that later. Happy to be here folks!
