The DIY Health and Wellness Blog mission is to empower readers with knowledge and tools to strengthen ourselves so we don't get sick (or need doctors) in the first place. And for the times when we do get sick, to provide alternative therapies that seek to strengthen our body's power to heal itself.
We try to give credence to western medicine when due, but also place high regard for oriental and other traditional and ethnic medical practices that view the body holistically, and whose focus is balance and enlivening our body's own intrinsic strength and well-being.
Yours for Health and Wellness!

Eye Strain

Here's a simple, yoga-inspired technique for relieving eye strain: Move the eyes up-and-down several times (12 o'clock-to-6 o'clock). Then several times 9:00-to-3:00, 10:30-to-4:30, and 1:30-to-7:30. Then all around several times, first clockwise, then counterclockwise. Finally, alternately focus on a near object and a far object. To finish, rub your palms together and place the warm palms over your closed eyes.
