Thank you for visiting Mommy Lynn Blog. My name is Lynn and I am from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
The above is a picture of me and my husband taken when we visited Osaka, Japan.
My husband and I have been building our network marketing business using the BE International business opportunity since March 2018.
We did quite well in the business.
Our trip to Osaka was fully sponsored by BE International when we qualified for the BE Lifestyle Travel campaign.
BE Lifestyle Travel campaign is a sales campaign held twice a year where the qualifier can get to travel overseas free of charge!
This is one of the many benefits building the BE business.
In the BE business, there is quite a large range of functional food product.
One such product is the Belixz I-Vxion from Japan.
I-Vxion is an eye supplement to take care of our eye health.
In this article, I thought of sharing the reason why I’ve decided to take I-Vxion regularly in my mid forties and the reason might surprise you.
Before I proceed, a quick note of disclaimer.
I am not a medical doctor.
The information I am sharing on this article is based on my personal experience, online research and reading from reputable and trusted web pages.
I will leave hyperlinks to the web pages of my information sources for your reference.
If you are not sure, please do your own further reading and research.
This article is for educational purposes only.
If you have health issues caused by serious illnesses, I would strongly advise you see a medical doctor.
My journey with Belixz I-Vxion started a few months ago when I took my father to visit an eye specialist.
My dad is in his 70s and he has trouble seeing on his right eye.
We suspected that he might have glaucoma.
Do you know what is eye glaucoma?
According to the National Eye Institute (NIH):
“Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that can cause vision loss and blindness by damaging a nerve in the back of your eye called the optic nerve.
The symptoms can start so slowly that you may not notice them. The only way to find out if you have glaucoma is to get a comprehensive dilated eye exam.
There’s no cure for glaucoma, but early treatment can often stop the damage and protect your vision.”
What are the symptoms of glaucoma?
According to the information from the same NIH web site:
“At first, glaucoma doesn’t usually have any symptoms. That’s why half of people with glaucoma don’t even know they have it.
Over time, you may slowly lose vision, usually starting with your side (peripheral) vision – especially the part of your vision that’s closest to your nose.
Because it happens so slowly, many people can’t tell that their vision is changing at first.
But as the disease gets worse, you may start to notice that you can’t see things off to the side anymore.
Without treatment, glaucoma can eventually cause blindness.”
The above are all the symptoms experienced by my father.
Visit to the doctor
At the eye specialist medical center, my dad went through all the eye test procedures.
After the procedures, we waited for more than an hour before we have consultation with the doctor.
The doctor told us my dad right eye has glaucoma.
The news wasn’t shocking because I’ve already expected it.
But then the doctor asked me a question.
He asked me whether I’ve had my eyes checked.
I said no, I have not.
I then asked the doctor why I have to get my eyes checked since I am still at a young age.
Isn’t glaucoma affect people in their senior age?
The doctor told me that there is a genetic risk of glaucoma.
Meaning, if my father has glaucoma, as his daughter, I have a high risk of developing glaucoma as well.
The information shocked me!
I went online immediately to search for information on genetical risk of glaucoma.
According to The Biochemist website:
First-degree relatives of individuals with primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) have an approximately ninefold greater risk of glaucoma than the general population.
Heritability studies have shown that glaucoma is one of the most heritable common diseases, more so than other common diseases such as cardiovascular disease or breast cancer.
This high genetic contribution, combined with the ease of diagnosis and good treatment outcomes, makes glaucoma an ideal disease target for genetic risk prediction studies.”
Since my dad has glaucoma, based on the information above, I am 9x greater risk of developing glaucoma compared to another person that their parents don’t have glaucoma.
That was all the convincing I needed to start taking Belixz I-Vxion eye supplement regularly.
Does your mother or father has glaucoma?
If they do, based on the research on genetical risk of glaucoma, you also have a high chance of developing glaucoma in your later years.
My recommendation is, take preventive measures right now!
