My problem is my eyes. I don’t do drugs, but my eyes are always red. I always have to carry a bottle of visine with me. This is just a temporary fix and they are red again. What can you suggest for me? I am a male, 39yrs old and I work in a collections office on a computer for six days a week.

I suggest that you visit a doctor or a natural practitioner to determine the cause of your red eyes. If there is no medical cause, a natural practitioner can assess your general health for other signs and symptoms such as digestive disturbances, dry skin, constipation and signs of stress, that may be treated to help the eye inflammation.

Foods that are beneficial for eye inflammation are: oily fish such as salmon, tuna, herring, mackerel and sardines; blueberries or bilberries, which may be purchased frozen.

The herb turmeric is useful for reducing inflammation. Dandelion root can help to reduce blood and liver congestion associated with inflammation.
