Energy Medicine, Qigong and Home remedies for Dry Eyes

In Energy Medicine we view the eyes as being governed primarily by the Liver, Kidney and Stomach Meridians.  Doing a 3-Point Technique by holding Acupressure Sedating, Strengthening and Control points for these meridians will help to balance many eye related issues. 

In Chinese Medicine the Liver is associated with wood element and imbalances include challenges with eyes.

Liver Detox Meditation and  Qigong Self Massage

Enjoy this simple medical Qigong meditation and self massage.
Gently place your palms over the liver under the right rib cage and massage in a counterclockwise circle for 3 minutes while you breathe deeply, exhaling slowly for a long count of 9 and inhaling slowly for a count of 9.
As you perform this meditation, imagine anger, frustration and irritability as stuck energy slowly releasing from the liver.
Imagine your palms bringing to the liver cool, calming and moist energy, like water nourishing a dry and withered tree.
Visualize your tree, becoming vibrant, strong and flexible, bending gently like a willow tree, able to flex with the demands of life without becoming rigid and stressed.
Finish the massage by shaking out hands thoroughly and placing palms on the lower abdomen about 3 inches below your belly button.
Consciously store energy in the lower abdomen and feel peaceful and ready for the next activity before you.

Home remedies for simple eye problems

For blepharitis and stye - Wet a clean cloth with warm water. Hold the cloth over your eyes for five minutes. Re-wet the cloth with warm water when it cools. Gently rub the washcloth over your eyelids to loosen any debris.

For itching with inflammation – Dip cotton in rose water and place it on the closed eyes for 5 minutes. Repeat twice daily. Rosewater is one of the most effective home remedies for itchy eyes.

For irritation and puffiness - Cucumber contains anti-irritation properties that help in reducing inflammation, puffiness, swelling and irritation happening in your eyes. Wash cucumber properly and then cut it into thin slices and then put them over your eyes. Repeat the process four to five times a day.

For itchy eyes - Take fenugreek seeds and soak them in water for seven to eight hours and then make a smooth paste out of it. Now apply the paste over your eyes and leave it for twenty minutes. Finally wash the paste off from your eyes with cold water. Repeat it twice daily.

For swollen eyes - Tea contains bioflavonoids that fight viral and bacterial infections and can help reduce inflammation. Use moist green tea bag as eye pad. Repeat several times a day. The tannic acid in the tea will soothe the itching. 

For fatigue eyes - Wash your eyes with plain water frequently. This soothes them. It also cleanses the eyes and relieves congestion.
