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.

In this episode, Certified Bates Method Teacher, Nathan Oxenfeld interviews Dr. Ray Gottlieb about how to improve attention, memory, coordination, proprioception, and vision using a trampoline! The concept is called "stress point training" and it has shown to help people learn new skills in a positive and productive way. Eventually it can help one master any given skill, whether playing an instrument, competing in sports, or simply seeing clearly without glasses. Dr. Ray tells some incredible success stories of people he has worked with in the past, and even gives a live demonstration of the trampoline work featuring his daughter, Kindred. To read his book "Attention & Memory Training: Stress Point Learning on the Trampoline" and to learn more about his lifetime of work, go to https://raygottlieb.com/ To listen to the first time Ray was on the Naked Eye Podcast, go to https://integraleyesight.com/raygottlieb

In this episode, Certified Bates Method Teacher, Nathan Oxenfeld reads an article by Dr. William H. Bates M.D. called "The Imperfect SIght of the Normal Eye", originally published in the New York Medical Journal on September 8, 1917.

After he reads the article (starting at 7:00), which overviews the various causes and natural treatments for vision problems, Nathan discusses some of the key points.

Here are the four conclusions:

  1. All persons with normal eyes and perfect sight do not have normal eyes and perfect sight continuously.
  2. The cause is always an effort or strain to see.
  3. Treatment by eye training is successful when distant, small, familiar letters are read a few moments at least every day.
  4. The good results obtained justify the use of the method in all schools, the army, the navy, the merchant marine, on all railroads, in short by everybody who desires or needs continuous perfect sight.
