I have accomplished a lot today in terms of educating you on some things you can do to help improve your vision and to reverse serious eye diseases. Now I kind of wear two hats, I am a Board-Certified Opthamologist, and practice traditional ophthalmology probably for close to 30 years. And when I discovered alternative medicine, it really changed my life. I said my goodness. These things really work. The thing I like about alternative therapy is we're actually trying to cure the disease, we're trying to get to the root problem to get your body healthy, and to stimulate your body to heal, and unfortunately traditional medicine doesn't do that. It just -- either they give you the drug-bezoar, they do their surgeries, the lasers, and they don't do anything to really try to stimulate their body to heal. So I am hoping that we'll be able to educate you on just some basic concepts on how to improve your vision. Now many of you are suffering from macular degeneration. You go to the eye doctor and they tell you, you have macular degeneration, nothing can be done, either that or they do multiple laser procedures or cataract surgery, and maybe that improves your vision for a brief period of time and then the disease or macular degeneration comes back. So what I'd like to talk to you about is to give you an outline of things we are going to talk about today, that actually are going to be beneficial not only for macular degeneration but for any eye problem. So I am going to give you an outline of what the whole day is going to be. We are going to begin by talking about nutrition and I really think that the biggest health crisis in our country is our poor diet. We are slowly poisoning ourselves with genetically modified food. The preservatives that are in the foods we eat. And the bulk of the food that we eat just doesn't have any nutritional value. So we are going to introduce you to what we call our 70/30 diet. We like you to really begin to shift your diet more towards organic living food, food that has life, and it's going to give nutrition into your body. The second thing we are going to talk about is hydration. Dr. Batmanghelidj who is a brilliant Persian physician wrote a book called Your Body's Many Cries for Water and he feels that all chronic disease and that's a pretty powerful statement, all chronic disease is due to dehydration. So as we get older, we begin to decrease our water intake, and we become dehydrated, and water is essential to help detoxify your body and to eliminate toxins, and all the cellular mechanisms, metabolism of the body is based on water. So as we get to become dehydrated, we accumulate these toxins and it makes us more prone to chronic disease. So we are going to talk about hydration. The third area is mineral deficiency. I was really shocked. I would say 80-90% of patients that I see are deficient in zinc, even though they are taking it as a supplement. And zinc is essential for every enzymatic reaction in the body. Many studies have been done to show that zinc deficiency is related to eye diseases. In fact, I have to laugh, because in a man three things happen when they are zinc deficient. They have decrease in vision, decrease in hearing, and they got prostate problems. And how many men over the age of 65 have those three conditions? So just by simply checking the zinc and making sure you are taking adequate amounts, we can reverse a lot of these problems. We are going to also talk about vitamin deficiency. I started by talking about nutrition and how the American diet is very pathetic and so many of us here are nutritionally deplete. It's essential that we begin to take vitamins at least to establish that foundation to help regain your health. In fact, sometimes we even recommend you have a Myers' cocktail, this is an intravenous mixture of vitamins to really help boost your vitamin levels, and it help enable your body to begin to heal. The other thing we are going to talk about is the autonomic nervo
