How I Healed My Extreme Dry Eye

by Levin Rutherford |

It's rare that you hear about someone actually healing their extreme dry eye syndrome. That's because most doctors don't know the root causes of dry eye. Throughout my 7 year journey to find a solution, I was only ever offered treatment for my symptoms, most of which did not work. I tried it all. Lipiflow, IPL, expensive ointments and eye drops, heated eye masks, swim goggles at night, coconut oil, breast milk, eye specialists, corneal specialists and nothing was working. It became so bad that I was afraid to go to sleep at night for fear that my eyes would glue themselves shut. And there was no relief in sight. The only break I got was when I was finally prescribed nighttime bandage lenses for restful sleep. At least then I was able to relax. Don't worry, this story has a happy ending.

Then I came across some information that would change my eye health forever, for the better. At the time I didn't believe in spontaneous healing but now I do! I started the medical medium protocol about 6 months ago for a myriad of other health issues I was facing at the time. Weight gain, hypothyroidism, borderline diabetes, fatigue, brain fog, depression, trouble sleeping, chronic inflammation and pain in my left hip, the list continues. Dry eyes were just another symptom on the list that I thought was incurable. Little did I know I was wrong!

I dove in, completely. This information was profound! It was like I was reading true health information for the first time and for once it all made perfect sense. I was hooked and I soaked it all up like a sponge. The medical medium books were my sacred text. My bible. My lifeline in a time of so much mystery and confusion surrounding my health. I was determined to heal my body naturally without going onto pharmaceuticals. For the first time in my life, I was beginning to understand the healing power of food and how sacred food was. I was beginning to wake up to the phrase "We are what we eat." It's so true! 

Within 6 months, with the power of lemon water, celery juice and heavy metal detox smoothie combined with the medical medium protocol I had chosen for my symptoms... I was symptomless. I lost 25 pounds. All of my symptoms went away, except for my dry eyes which I still believed could not be healed. I decided to look further into it. I found out dry eyes are linked to adrenal fatigue and deep body dehydration caused from caffeine, vinegar and alcohol. Dry eyes are a compound issue. Apparently there are viruses living in our eyes that feed off of heavy metals. I decided to dive deeper into the protocol. I cut out all caffeine, alcohol and vinegar and started eating lots of hydrating foods. I would eat a melon a day! Watermelon became my favorite snack along with cucumbers, tomatoes, fruit, bananas....I eat a ton of bananas!

Then I discovered a coconut water that I loved and couldn't get enough of. It's called C2O. My body craved it up like oxygen. I started drinking 16 to 32 ounces of coconut water a day for a few weeks and then suddenly, my eyes stopped getting dry at night. I noticed I wasn't reaching for the eyedrops at 8 o'clock every night before bedtime. But I was still wearing my bandage lenses to sleep in, trying to build up the confidence to try a night of sleep without them. It took courage but one night I finally did it...and success! My eyes did fine! No dry eye at night. No waking up in excruciating pain. The coconut water was the key! I'm sure all of the hydrating foods helped as well but there's something so deeply hydrating about coconut water that to this day I drink 32 oz on the daily. 

All I can say is it's a miracle. I've gone for 3 months now without wearing bandage lenses at night. All I do is put some IVIZIA drops in and pull down my silk sleeping mask and go to sleep. This may seem like a simple thing to most people, but to me, it's life changing. I want to tell the whole world about my story of how I healed my extreme dry eyes. There are so many people out there lost, confused, hopeless, in pain, seeking relief. I know, I've been there. My heart and prayers go out to you and I hope that my story can help you in some way to find the healing that you need to live a normal life again. I believe in you and I know that you can heal.
