Diet won't improve my eye disease. I actually do have a very good diet, and always have. I eat very little meats and when I do it's chicken or fish. I love veggies a lot.
I've never had to go on a diet (to lose weight) in my entire life. Even at my age, I am still quite small. I'm 5ft 3in, and weigh 108 lbs. I had my first and only child when I was 35, and 3 days after having him I was back down to 115lbs.
I've always been a health nut. In college I played on our tennis team (wearing really THICK glasses LOL). I also ran cross country track and up until my son was born, I still ran 8.5 miles every night. I was on the women's weight lifting team in college too. I'm not buffed out, just toned. But I can deadlift 250lbs.
I understand how you feel toward your niece, but really the best thing you and your family can do for her is to treat her no differently than you would a sighted child. This will allow her to develop the sense that she is not held back from anything due to her disabilities.
As an example, my cousin is blind and has been since birth. They had to remove his eyes because they were too disease ridden. He has glass eyes. My aunt and uncle treated him the same as they did their other (sighted) children. He grew up with the sense that there wasn't anything he couldn't do and that his only limitations were ones he imposed on himself.
He went to college and earned a degree. He works in Mercy Hospital in Detroit as an X-ray Technologist. Yes, a blind man develops X-rays. Who'd have thunk it?
I too went to college because English was my passion, as was teaching. I taught for many years and retired from that prior to the birth of my son.
My one inspiration that I would always instill in my students was, a person with great foresight is known as a seer ... a visionary. One does not have to have eyesight to be a visionary. They hold the power within themselves to achieve great things, they just have to know it, and believe it, and then they will no doubt achieve it.
Thank you for the link to the detox diet though. I certainly will have a look at it.
