I just finished watching a video by LifeRegenerator where he interviewed Kristina Carillo-Bucaram in which she stated that her eyes used to be dark brown and have turned green and now blue.
If anyone here has experienced an eye-color change, can you please post a before and after? It doesn't have to be a close up of your eyes but at least demonstrate the change. It can just be a picture of you at the beach! It doesn't matter as long as we can see your eyes ok! If you wanna post a close-up pic, the pupil should be dilated to approximately the same diameter too since we all know that constricted pupil eyes appear lighter than dilated pupil eyes.
My hypothesis is that such a change can only happen to those who have been raw for over one year, had light eyes in early infancy that later changed in color, and you have to be 100% raw with no sway from the path. So far I haven't seen any pics, only random posts of people on online forums claiming that their eyes changed.
Show us your eyes! :-)
Can be a sign of loss of melanin or
Note that if your adult eye color changes pretty dramatically, or if one eye changes from brown to green or blue to brown (called heterochromia), it's important to see your eye doctor. Eye color changes can be a warning sign of certain diseases, such as Fuch's heterochromic iridocyclitis, Horner's syndrome or pigmentary glaucoma.
This isn't really revelational. Iridologists have observed this for years when people make significant lifestyle changes.
Sorry but Iridology is pretty unscientific, although it attempts to be. I might be wrong, but I doubt there is an iridology journal. That having been said, maybe there is some in a CAM journal. Who knows. I can't say I have looked, though it would be interesting to find out. As far as I know, the only evidence is anecdotal ;o)
My own eyecolour changed when I was younger, though that is not too uncommon. But it used to change quite considerably. Even now I still notice some periodical changes. By eyes used to be totally blue. Then they started to change intermittently between blue. Sometimes even one eye would be a different colour to the other, or half of an eye would be different. Eventually they settled on green with a dark blue rim. When I did my 24 day water fast, my eyes definately got bluer. They are still green, but they got more blue. I don't know a lot about iridology but I think they say that green eyed people are really blue eyed, but their lymphatic system is over-worked which creates a yellow film that gives the appearance of green. But they are actually still blue-eyed. Just a bit too toxic still. Supposedly as the lymphatic system clears the eyes become more blue.
I have certainly observed this to be true in myself. When I have had periods of higher fat and protein intake from nuts, the yellow film becomes more obvious. My mum I have observed this in particular. Her eyes have definately become more yellow as she has got older.
I will be interested to see whether my eye colour changes again as I get older.
my eyes have changed color from brown to green on 811
i wouldn't have noticed but people kept telling me my eyes look green and i know they used to be brown
Abbreviation for 80/10/10
FYI A lot of that is genetic. That's why Northern Indians tend to have fairer skin and lighter hair in general - it's in their blood! That's why I laugh at the racism of Indians, because we're all such a mix of bloodlines that no one knows where the hell we've come from :)
Just saying that I'd be wary of attributing their eyes to diet unless you see before/after pictures. Many of my relatives have blue eyes despite eating a standard crap diet.
Part of me will always hope though, that my dark eyes will one day turn blue *fingers crossed* :)
That doesn't count, silly. :-p I'm not talking about people with deep skin who have lighter eyes. I'm specifically talking about people whose eyes underwent a change. As in from green to blue, brown to green, green to brown, anything really!
Most of us are familiar with the national geographic picture of the Afghan girl. I don't think she's an 80-10-10'er though. Her eye color is likely not influenced by diet. :-p
I still feel like I need proof of this eye color changing thing though to believe it and I haven't found it yet...
With something like weight loss, yes, the body can change shape according to how you eat.
But there are things i'm still curious about. How did people get so much taller nowadays if people back in the stone age only ate raw? Can you say for certain that being tall is genetically not how we are supposed to be?
One of the huge premises of raw foods is that this is the way nature intended us to eat. How many of us are walking around with a different appearance than nature intended? Is going raw more than just losing a bunch of weight and being able to run marathons? I'd like to know and I think other people would be curious too!
I'm blabbing on, but I'm interested in the "power" of raw foods. I'd like to know all of the magic that it can do. :-)
