038: Natural Vision as a Survival Skill & Seeing Beyond the Pandemic
In this episode, Certified Bates Method Teacher, Nathan Oxenfeld explores how natural vision is a survival skill that can help in dire times, like we are seeing right now with the global Coronavirus pandemic. The Bates Method of natural vision improvement teaches you how to improve the overall health of your eyes holistically, which can lead to clearer vision naturally and thus decreased dependency on artificial lenses, glasses, and contacts. Countries around the world are shutting down, and closing "non-essential" businesses. In some places, that includes eye doctors. What are you going to do if your glasses break while in quarantine? What if you're not able to reorder more contact lenses and you run out? How will you function in your everyday life? That's where the Bates Method comes in. By learning simple relaxation techniques and implementing vision enhancing practices, you can learn how to see clearly with just your naked eyes and no longer worry about depending on visual crutches anymore. Nathan also points out the synchronicity of Dr. Bates publishing an article in the March 1920 Better Eyesight Magazine called "Influenza - A Quick Cure". Listen to The Better Eyesight Podcast to hear the full article! Also, just last month Nathan released Episode 37 of The Naked Eye Podcast called "How Your Worldview & Self Image Can Influence Your Eyesight". Little did he know that a few weeks later the entire human population on the planet would be going through a major worldview shift in a very short amount of time. Listen to The Naked Eye Podcast to learn more. Finally, Nathan also invites you to practice seeing beyond this current health crisis and clarify your vision of your future. There are so many unknowns right now that can be quite unsettling. If your future looks fuzzy, spend some time palming your eyes and visualizing a clearer version of what you'd like to see in the coming months and years ahead.

037: How Your Worldview and Self-Image Can Influence Your Eyesight
"We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are." In this episode, Certified Bates Method Teacher, Nathan Oxenfeld discusses the deeper connections between your worldview, your self-image, and your vision. Holistic eye care is all about expanding your definition of "vision" and including more factors in what vision can mean to you beyond just eyesight. It is also about investigating the non-physical factors that have shaped your vision in the past and continue to shape your vision today. This list on non-physical factors affecting your vision can be quite long, but today we are honing in on two in particular: worldview and self-image. Your worldview is how you think, feel, believe, and perceive the world outside of yourself. Your self-image is how you think, feel, believe, and perceive yourself and how you fit into the world. Your worldview and your self-image are formed through a combination of personal experiences and from what you take on from external sources. Sometimes we feel stuck in a certain worldview or self-image. Likewise, we can also feel stuck in a certain way of seeing. However, by becoming more flexible with these changeable non-physical factors like your worldview and self-image, you create the possibility of making a positive change with your physical eyesight. This episode was recorded from Buenos Aires, Argentina as Nathan prepares to attend the first Latin American Holistic Vision Conference. www.integraleyesight.com www.bettereyesightpodcast.com www.naturalvisionteachers.com www.gofundme.com/2020movie

034: How To Breathe Through Stress and Relax When Busy
In this episode, Certified Bates Method Teacher, Nathan Oxenfeld teaches you a strategy to reduce stress, anxiety, and worry, and increase relaxation, clarity, and focus. This breathing technique, often called "Box Breathing" involves inhaling for 4 seconds, holding for 4 seconds, exhaling for 4 seconds, holding for 4 seconds, and repeating. With practice, the number of seconds can be gradually increased to 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, etc. It is recommended to do this breathing practice while sitting down or lying down in a safe and comfortable place. As a yoga teacher, Nathan utilizes breathing practices and yogic pranayamas on a regular basis to manage stress - even when it is good stress. This is a fast and simple way to switch from the sympathetic "fight, flight, freeze" nervous system to the parasympathetic "rest, digest, relax" nervous system.
