The Naked Eye Podcast: Exploring Natural Alternatives to Glasses, Contacts, and Surgeries

The Naked Eye Podcast is a show designed to help people learn how to see clearly with the naked eye. No glasses, no contacts, no laser eye surgeries… just natural vision improvement. Together we’ll explore the holistic side of eyecare and how natural alternatives like the Bates Method, Yoga, Meditation, Breathwork and more can give you healthier eyes, which leads to better eyesight and insight. Nathan Oxenfeld will be teaching you natural vision tips and vision enhancement practices, covering advances in vision training, vision science, and neuroplasticity, challenging orthodox views and belief systems, debunking vision myths, and conducting interviews with the world’s leading natural vision educators and other alternative practitioners that offer modalities that also enhance eyesight & insight. He'll also be answering listener questions and creating a forum for people who are in the process of improving their own vision holistically to share their experiences, challenges, and successes. This podcast will also document Nathan's ongoing travels, events, classes, workshops, and retreats to raise awareness of natural alternatives to glasses, contacts, and surgery.
