to tradition Chinese health theory, the “Liver” opens into the eyes
and controls vision. The Chinese version of the Liver is a complex organ
system. Its functions include not only those of the liver as we know it
physiologically in the West, but also includes a number of other organic
structures and functions that might seem unrelated at first glance, but are in
fact closely related functionally – such as the control of the peripheral
nervous system and, in particular,our vision. The
eyes are a part of the peripheral nervous system, and are therefore controlled
by the Liver. Both visual acuity and the condition of the eyes itself are under
the influence of the Liver.
Liver “prefers to remain cool.” Yin tonifying
herbs provide the natural coolness that supports healthy eye tissue and
Goji, Chrysanthemum, Dendrobium, Peony and Cassia tora
nurture Liver Yin.
Goji berry is famed for its benefit to the eyes as well
as to the system as a whole. Goji is a Liver and
blood tonic. Goji berries contain carotenoids
that promote vitamin A production and provide important eye nutrients,
including zeathanthin, a carotenoid
that protects the health of the retina, the pigment that coats the retina (the
back wall of the eye).
herb that is highly reputed for its benefits to the eyes is the small Oriental Chrysanthemum Flower. This
flower is used in Chinese herbalism to directly and
quickly benefit the eyes and vision by clearing obstructions and allowing
energy to flow freely through the eyes. It is a cooling herb which clears heat
away from the eyes. This herb can help relieve temporary mild eye strain, eye
redness and eye congestion due to fatigue and temporary dryness resulting from
environmental conditions. Anger and toxic substances will cause the eyes to
become red, as will a lack of sleep. If your eyes are chronically fatigued, red
or congested, or become so due to a condition such as hay fever, see a physician as this may indicate a
Cornus is another tonic
fruit that has powerful effects on the “Kidneys” and “Liver.”
It is traditionally believed to be a valuable eye tonic. Astragalus and Dioscorea
supplement Qi and strengthen the body. Vitex rotundifolia supports clear vision. Ligusticum
stimulates the smooth flow of Qi and blood. Tribulus tonifies the Kidney and Liver. Cassia
tora cools the eyes.
herbs are not to be used for the
purposes of curing, preventing or
treating any disease of the eyes (for that, you should consult a physician before using any herbs or supplements). This formula
is used to promote the proper energy balance in the eyes so that the eyes
remain healthy. As a Yin tonic, it also promotes healthy fluid balance of the
eyes. Again, if you are experiencing significant eye inflammation or what
appears to be an eye infection or any other disease of the eye, you should
consult a physician.*
