Recently I went through a surgical procedure called a Vitrectomy to repair a macular hole in my left eye.
This procedure itself was not that difficult as the surgery has been improved greatly since it was first done in the 1990's.
Post surgery requires one to be in a face-down position for 55 out of 60 minutes 24/7 for a minimum of 5 days and usually a week.
To help others heal faster and tolerate this position better, I created two videos. If you know of anyone who will be going through this process, I hope you share these videos with them.
Thanks to the following:
Dr. Seongmin Youn OD (optometrist who first diagnosed his suspicion of a Macular Hole)
Dr. Darrin Levin, M.D. of Retinal Consultants of Michigan (my surgeon) and his staff
The nurses and staff of Straith Hospital in Southfield (where my procedure was done)
My husband, Dr. Bruce Born for putting up with me and helping me with Chiropractic treatment pre and post surgery
My daughter in law, Carol who drove me to various appointments and stayed with me during surgery.

Purpose of this site:
To help people learn more about the use of herbs. Herbal remedies have helped people for centuries, even before the written word. The ancients would pass along information about the healing herbs to the next generation. They didn't need "double blind" studies to determine their worth--they knew the herbs, and they knew how they worked.
Herbs will work for you too. There are only a couple of things you need to know:
Be sure of the quality!
What testing procedures are done to assure you're getting what you pay for? Check out "Quality" above.
Be sure of purity!
Especially root herbs have been known to have some contaminants. Nature's Sunshine allows none! If you are paying cheap prices, you may be getting fillers, synthetics, and dirt in the bargain.
What they say on the label is in the bottle--you can count on it! When looking for therapeutic quality--get Nature's Sunshine.
Good Health is not just being lucky!
Herbal remedies have been used successfully even on animals, and they certainly don't care about the "how". All herbs are not created equal. Nature's Sunshine was the first company to encapsulate herbs. (If you have ever tasted some herbal teas you will understand the importance of encapsulating). Nature's Sunshine has the most extensive in-house testing facilities of any of the herbal companies. They care about the quality because their 30 years of excellent reputation was based on quality as a cornerstone. Sort of like, "if you care enough to send the very best". Well, those people who care, use Nature's Sunshine.
If you want the best quality at the lowest price join the membership club and save at least 35%!
So, I care about the people I help, and therefore, I recommend the best program and offer the best prices with the best quality. How can I help you?
