  • Roman on Your Readiness to See Clearly Will Guide Your ActionsThank you, Darrel! Just to prevent any misunderstanding - Dr. Bates is probably the one person I am most grateful to for what they did (and through his successors still does) apart from very close friends I have known for...
  • John Martin Cook on The Problem with GlassesI know this is two years later, but I can't stand the hoity-toity ignorance displayed in this post - even though I know it is the conventional reaction to the ideas David and those of us who agree (mostly) with...
  • Doug MarshDoug Marsh on Blind Woman Recovers Her Eyesight by Natural MeansYes, Darrel, sad indeed. Your comments echo those of Imre Lakatos, a mathematical and scientific philosopher. He was speaking about theoretical scientists, but the same attitude filters down to those educated in applied science and medical science: “Scientists have thick...
  • Darrel on Your Readiness to See Clearly Will Guide Your ActionsThe ability to be able to resonate with patients is something that Bates and Emily surely had, and yet it is this elusive quality that defies description. In fact, the more we try to describe and define it, the further...
  • Darrel on Your Readiness to See Clearly Will Guide Your ActionsThe point about religious groups resonates with me, it reminds me of the 1977 Britannica article where it is suggested that it is not the primary concern of a student of religion to know the practices, doctrines, institutions, rituals etc....
  • Darrel on Blind Woman Recovers Her Eyesight by Natural MeansVery interesting Doug. This story really should send shockwaves through orthodox ophthalmology but things seem to have changed little or not at all since Bates's day in this respect. I imagine that most ophthalmologists, optometrists and the like who hear...
  • Doug MarshDoug Marsh on Blind Woman Recovers Her Eyesight by Natural MeansThanks for your comments, Ronald. Much appreciated. Kudos to David for hosting this website and for his posts and Nancy’s posts. We’re all doing our bit to help de-marginalize NVI from the fringes. It’ll require a massive shift in public...
  • Ronald E. Stiles on Blind Woman Recovers Her Eyesight by Natural MeansDoug, this is an outstanding article. Thank you for posting. Many view natural vision improvement as alternative medicine, such as energy healing. The fact is, it is not an alternative method, it is the method that would have been traditional...
  • chee on Stop Wearing Glasses and Improve Your Visionlmao. So well written, and on point! I actually laughed
  • DavidDavid on Your Readiness to See Clearly Will Guide Your ActionsI suspect that is true, that not only teachers but healers of any kind have a hard time communicating what it is they are really doing. I guess the trick is to get people to look beyond he movements. Gregg...
  • DavidDavid on Your Readiness to See Clearly Will Guide Your ActionsYou're right, people probably took Emily nearly as well as they did Bates, judging from her success.
  • Roman on Your Readiness to See Clearly Will Guide Your ActionsA lot of this boils down to, I think, true, meaningful personal interaction and truly being able to 'tune in' to each other. Dr. Bates certainly could do that, and so could Ms. Lierman. I have the feeling that many...
  • Roman on Relaxation is a Paradox with Natural Vision ImprovementGreat - thanks a lot, Doug! Particularly for that online resource.
  • NancyNancy on Blur! What Is It Good For?Roman, yes, Janet Goodrich made a big contribution. And many of us find that, contrary to what you'd expect, fighting the blur and trying to attack it just exhausts us, plus we don't make much pr0gress.
  • Doug MarshDoug Marsh on Relaxation is a Paradox with Natural Vision ImprovementHi Roman, Check out the Trigger Point Therapy Workbook for more specifics about TPs in the head, face and neck. Also see this link: http://www.triggerpoints.net/head-and-neck
  • NancyNancy on What Are You Not Seeing?Hi Roman, and thanks so much for your comment. Yes, even though everyone's vision condition is unique like we all are as people, there are commonalities, and the way I look at things 🙂 may help you too. Keep up...
  • Roman on Blur! What Is It Good For?Yes. Very true. I think what did it for me (accepting the blur as a legitimate state/message while trying to gently work with it) was that supercute illustration "make friends with the blur" in Janet Goodrich's "Natural Vision Improvement". I...
  • Roman on What Are You Not Seeing?Hi Nancy, Just thought that I'd leave a quick note that ever since I stumbled across this blog I've read and reread many of your posts - I find them very enlightening and reassuring, since much of what you recount...
  • Roman on Relaxation is a Paradox with Natural Vision ImprovementOh wow. I recently had a very similar(?) experience while traveling by train on a very sunny day. I was sitting at the window, and the sun came straight from the right, often through stretches of naked trees. Once in...
  • Roman on Relaxation is a Paradox with Natural Vision ImprovementYes, there seem to be quite a few inherent paradoxes in NVI. But I think learning to accept those and somehow make "sense" of them is part of that particular journey, and paradoxes are apparently also a domain of the...
