I took part in a mailing list discussion today. A number of people asked me to post the following message on my blog for easy reference. For context I will include the comments I was responding to first, followed by my response. (I'm editing parts of this for privacy and clarity.)
Here is a question from FitEyes member Jan:
Hello. Can anyone recommend the best dietary supplement for lowering eye pressure?
Dr. Kondrot recently enticed FitEyes members with some interesting observations about what he called grounding and its effects on intraocular pressure. He also wrote about earthing and shared this video of his patient, Peter Abilogu, a professor of African Dance, performing in his office.
I received the following response from a FitEyes reader on another topic. But his last comment prompted something I want to share with everyone. So please read on, starting with an edited excerpt from his comment that inspired me.
[I am on] on a six month trial doing alternate day fasting, twenty minute mindful meditative walks in nature twice a day, 30 minutes of aerobic exercise every other day, while detoxing with hexagonal water.
[I am] 10% persuaded that [I] will permanently lower [my] intraocular pressure to 10 mm Hg in six months.
That last line really caught my attention. Here is my response:
Recently here on FitEyes, readers have asked about the relationship between intraocular pressure about meditation. That prompted me to write this post about some of the broader spiritual aspects of what I do as well as how I view intraocular pressure in my own life and in my work as a Serene Impulse teacher.
Can you please tell me why TM is not good for Glaucoma.
Dave, this seems to be related to some of the things you say about intraocular pressure
The following story illustrates that different forms of meditation build different types of skills. My own research also suggests that different forms of meditation have differing effects on intraocular pressure.
