In a recent interview, Biochemist David Rasnick, PhD, recalled some interesting observations he had made about health while working as a Peace Corps volunteer in Papua New Guinea in the early 1990s.  He emphasized that the indigenous people of that country were “absolutely the healthiest people I’ve ever met in my life!” He then elaborated with an anecdote that pertained to eyesight health: “I was teaching high school there and I noticed nobody was wearing glasses … no students [were wearing them]. I went to the headmaster one day and said, ‘I guess the students aren’t wearing glasses because they’re just too poor.’ He said, “No, they don’t need them.’ In fact, nobody needed glasses there! They were so healthy – strong capable people – they knew how to take care of themselves.”
The interviewer (Film Director, Mike Wallach) then stated: “This is really what I want to try to capture – and it’s so obvious – but I want to remind people that we are being sold a vision where health is delivered to you by technology.”
Rasnick concurred and responded with a rhetorical question: “How did we exist on this planet for hundreds of thousands of years before the white-jacketed people showed up? I almost accept nothing that’s become mainstream about health … almost nothing anymore.”
Rasnick’s personal observations of the Papua New Guineans were consistent with the findings of the Natural Vision Improvement (NVI) pioneer Dr. Bates. Decades earlier, Bates had documented the excellent eyesight of indigenous people (see my previous post which includes this particular topic).
Although Rasnick may be unaware of Dr. Bates’ research, they share a common trait. Both undertook independent research based on the old ideals of the scientific method – such as objectivity, integrity, free and open discussion – with a goal to discover truths previously unknown. As both men found out, when research findings clashed with the status quo and dogmatic theories, then ridicule, character assassination and professional ostracism soon followed. Rasnick wrote an excellent journal article entitled “The Tyranny of Dogma.”  Pure medical science has long been co-opted by mega corporations colluding with big government to market consumer dependence on only one extremely lucrative model. Mainstream disease care (erroneously called “health care”) is rife with corruption and control under the prevailing monopoly.
Those of us who have improved our vision by natural means were raised in our industrialized society accepting as normal so many people wearing glasses. Our parents deferred to the “white-jacketed” authority figures, completely unaware that our modern culture itself was the cause of the widespread vision problems. The addictive impact of prescribed negative lenses – the technological “solution” – added insult to injury by progressively worsening the myopia due to years of constant wearing.
If you are new to NVI, don’t be deterred by eye doctors and organizations declaring it to be quackery and useless. Bear in mind that there is a massive propaganda machine at work within the industry that’s intent on maintaining majority control by selling highly profitable vision examinations and technological products (glasses, contact lenses or laser surgery). Sadly, their products cure nothing and lead to long-term damages.
Be inspired by the Papua New Guineans’ robust health and keen eyesight. Take the natural approach to improving your vision; the spin-off from the stress reduction is apt to result in better overall health, as NVI is truly holistic.
