Optic neuritis is inflammation of the optic nerves in the eye. It is usually associated with having multiple sclerosis and can cause pain and temporary vision loss. The most important steps are to:
1. Make dietary changes - avoid alcohol, refined sugars and refined flours to reduce inflammation in the body.
2. Purchase an proteolytic enzyme such as Vitalzym X by World Nutrition and take 4 gel capsules when arising and 4 at bedtime away from food. These enzymes reduce inflammation and go after scar tissue. To order go to www.nutrascripts.com

3. Eye exercises - it is important that the muscles be strengthened to communicate properly with the nerves. Atrophying of muscles brings on more nerve deterioration. Do the following exercises morning and night.
Sit up and look straight ahead of you. Without moving your head take your eyes up to the 12 o’clock position and hold for a few seconds, next move them to the 3 o’clock position and hold, next look down to 6 o’clock and hold, then 9 o’clock and hold. Do this rotation twice. Then do it again but reverse the direction. Start at 12 o’clock and hold, then move eyes to 9 o’clock and hold, 6 o’clock, and so on. The key is to not move your head but stretch the eyes to those positions. After two cycles of each direction make circles with your eyes in those positions without holding. Do two circles clockwise and two circles counter clockwise.
