I had an eye doctor tell me that he could see the cholesterol buildup in my eyes. That freaked me out! Somehow that seems more real than the doctor giving me the results of a blood test.

Yes, I knew a little about this. My eye doctor has been telling me for years how he can see my high blood pressure affecting my vision when he does my eye exam. another important reason to exercise and keep it down! Eye health responds better to diet and exercise than to medication. Thanks for the reminder.

Everyone has heard that the "eyes are windows to the soul" and know doctors can tell a lot about people's overall health by studying their eyes. Did you know this is true about your dental health and gut as well?

I had a rough day yesterday and talked my dentist out of not doing the big work we had planned for another 3 weeks and am challenging myself to improve my oral, gut, and eye health so my doctor (April 8) and dentist (April 15) notice and comment on how I look/my body behaves when I go to see them :-)

Interestingly enough, teeth and eyes kind of like the same things! An excellent dentist's site said that for good dental health one should eat more cheese, yogurt, plain nuts, peanut butter, fruits and veggies and, of course, lay off so much sugar :-)

So, I'm going to work from this list, get less sugar and fewer simple carbs for my teeth, more fiber (popcorn/whole grains (mentioned by dental site too, just watch the amount of sugar they add to the bread; you want unsweetened breads)) and water, and I'm going to keep my eyes out emoticon for extra beta carotene, which converts into Vitamin A, such as that in sweet potatoes, kale, spinach, and carrots.


There is no pleasure worth forgoing just for an extra three years in the geriatric ward. ~John Mortimer
