Ron Teeguarden Eagle Vision
Eagle Vision is an eye tonic formulation composed of herbs used traditionally to maintain excellent eye health. According to traditional Chinese health theory, the Liver opens into the eye and controls vision. 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 eye itself are under the influence of the Liver.
Primary Traditional Functions
Tonifies Liver, nourishes blood and relieves heat
Who Can Use This Formula
Anyone who wishes to improve their vision
The Liver is damaged by excessive heat and therefore prefers to remain cool. Excessive heat conditions can cause general hypersensitivity, allergic reactions and the full range of Liver symptoms. The natural tendency of the Liver is to overheat, in which case the heat rises, causing neck tension, hypertension, bloodshot or inflamed eyes, headaches, etc. This is called Liver fire rising. Or the heat can dry up the Liver Yin causing Liver Yin deficiency, which manifests as dizziness, depression, headache, irritability and blurred vision.
Lycium fruit (Goji berry) is famed for its benefit to the eyes as well as to the system as a whole. Lycium is a Liver and blood tonic. Common symptoms of deficiency of liver blood syndrome include dizziness, pale and lusterless complexion, blurred vision, visual "shooters" and dry eyes.
An 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 also helps to clear up eye congestion and eye infections in medicinal herbalism.
Lycium, Chrysanthemum, Dendrobium, Peony and Cassia tora nurture Liver Yin. Liver Yin deficiency is usually a result of Kidney Yin deficiency. Accompanying signs and symptoms will include dizziness, headache, irritability, nervous tension, dry eyes, photophobia and blurry vision with accompanying kidney yin deficiency symptoms. These Yin herbs relieve Liver heat. Generally, Liver Yang quickly becomes excessive as well, accentuating the problem. This condition can become chronic.
Anger and toxic substances will cause the eyes to become red, as will a lack of sleep, which harms the blood and Yin of the Liver.
Of course, tonic herbs are not to be used for the purposes of curing any disease of the eyes. This formula is used to promote the proper energy balance in the eyes so that the eyes remain healthy. However, it is worth understanding that according to traditional Chinese health philosophy, acute inflammatory eye diseases are generally associated with significant excess of Liver fire. Chronic eye disorders such as blurred vision, dizziness, chronically dry eyes and glaucoma are caused by blood and Yin deficiency of the Liver (often in conjunction with Yin Jing deficiency).
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 purges Liver Fire, disperses wind-heat and clears vision. Ligusticum and Acorus stimulate the smooth flow of Qi and blood. Tribulus tonifies the Kidney and Liver and clears wind heat.
