Healing Your Eyes Naturally

Meir Schneider was born blind. Surgeries on his eyes did not help him, and he lived for seventeen years unable to see. At the age of 17 he became aware of the Bates vision exercises and practiced them without pause, until gradually his eyesight began to improve. Today his vision is normal enough that he holds a California driver’s license and can drive and is self-sufficient. But he didn’t stop with healing himself, he founded and now runs a school of self-healing in San Francisco, helping others with their visual problems, and other conditions such as muscular dystrophy.

I was very grateful he agreed to an interview and that I can share the following information with you.

Interview with Meir

Q: Your personal story is so dramatic. Looking back, what was it that as a child caused you to persevere so strongly towards healing your eyes?

A: In the first two pages of my book, Movement for Self-Healing, I describe the love of my grandmother, which made a very big difference to me in my life. She used to lie with me in hospital beds, and supported me through five surgeries. Both my parents were deaf and my connection with my grandmother was significant. My grandmother made me feel that I’m worthwhile. And that feeling gave me the tenacity to work on my eyes 13 hours a day. There is nothing like the love of a parental figure to make someone move forward.

Thanks very much for this. I myself use Indian eye exercises as well as palming, and washing my eyes with cold water - I have found this to be very useful as I'm short-sighted in one eye, long-sighted in the other, and have astigmatism in both. It doesn't help that I read a lot and watch TV and use the computer for several different things. But these exercises really do help (I learnt them in a very old eye clinic - all natural - in Pondicherry, India)!! Thanks for sharing, and keep up the good work :D

I wish this gentleman well and I hope his work progresses. I found out how self healing my own body is. As an infant, I had polio and lost the use of my left leg. I was ten months old and had not learned to walk yet. But around age eleven there were just too many things I wanted to do that required walking. I found a dedicated swim coach at the local Y who would help me get in and out of the pool. He also taught me some different swimming styles. I loved swimming. I loved feeling my body move through my intention. I swam long and often.
The muscles that the polio kept from developing started to grow. I spent so much time in the pool that first year of being able to swim, my muscles developed to the same size and strength of my peers. During the second year, I went from tentative foot steps to running the track. My body healed itself. But as this wonderful gentleman pointed out there is work involved.
