No doubt, we ask a lot of our eyes today with all the gadgets and screens we need to look into to keep up with modern life. Unfortunately, this provides the eyes with daily exposure to radiation.
This is very taxing for such a sensitive, vital organ like the eyes. Conditions like eye strain, dry eyes, conjunctivitis, and inflammation of the eyes are so common today in this tech-heavy world so it is imperative to have good eye care practices to replenish and support the eyes. Fortunately, these conditions can be prevented and cared for with the ancient, time-tested healing treatment ~Triphala Eyewash.
Triphala is a highly revered Ayurvedic formula composed of three highly nourishing fruits that are a treasure trove of nutrients and bioactive plant chemicals. This formula is commonly used in regulating blood sugar levels, promoting digestion, and as an effective liver and kidney detoxifier, but it’s also exceptionally beneficial for the eyes, as well.
Triphala Eyewash is also used to treat more serious conditions like glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts. This treatment also improves vision, strengthens the eye muscles, reduces oxidative stress on the eyes, and possesses anti-aging properties.
Check out my how-to video below to add this simple practice to your daily routine.
Normally, when washing eyes in Triphala water, it may cause mild irritation at first and make you tear, but very shortly, you will feel the soothing sensation. As everyone reacts differently to herbs and medicine, please discontinue use if severe redness or irritation occurs.
Make sure you have clean eyes with no make-up when you administer the eyewash. Use either a dropper (3 drops each eye) or an eye cup like the one I used in the video below. Let the eyewash fill your eye socket then open and blink to let the eyewash do its work for about one minute.
You can do this every day and can be done long-term. For more chronic conditions, doing this both morning and night is most impactful.
