Eye Health with Bryce Wylde Vision Health Month

Eye Health – An Interview with Bryce Wylde

Our eye health is far more than going for corrective lenses.

May is Vision Health Month. A few statistics from the CNIB:

  • There are more than 5.5 million Canadians with a major eye disease that could cause vision loss.
  • The prevalence of vision loss in Canada is expected to increase nearly 30 per cent in the next decade.

As the CDC says ….. 80% of  our chronic illness could be prevented.  The same applies to our vision ……75%  of vision loss can be treated or prevented.

“Eat organic food. Drink pure filtered water. Identify eye health with Bryce Wylde on Best In Health Radiodeficiencies. Supplement for prevention. Practice mindfulness. Your health is an investment, not an expense………”

and….

“All of the cells in our body are constantly regenerating, cells die and new ones are formed. Look in the mirror – the person you see now will be totally different in a couple of years. Think of investing in our health as creating the next you, the best you. Self version 2.0 ➨2.5➨3.0″…………Bryce Wylde
