Do you think it may be possible for your eyes to change color by a raw food diet?

The eyes are not only a window to your soul but a window to your internal health too. Quite a few claims have been made that some people experienced improved vision or that their eye color changed to blue or light gray due to their constant intake of raw food.

Raw foodism (or a raw food diet) is the diet of eating only uncooked and unprocessed food. Vegan raw food diets include a selection of organic fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds (as well as sprouted seeds) and produced without the use of any synthetic pesticides or fertilizers. A raw foods diet is made up of fresh, whole, unrefined, living plant-based foods, which are consumed in their natural state, without cooking or steaming them.

People who adopt this diet are often referred to as “raw fooders” or “raw vegans.”

Those who stick to raw food diets believe that cooking makes your food toxic also say that a raw food diet can help you get rid of headaches and allergies, boost your immune system and improve your memory; and simply make you healthier.

A side effect of vegan raw food diets has been reported by different people who say that their eyes became clearer or their eye color changed. It is fairly common for one’s vision to improve because of the cleansing effect of a raw food diet. As a side effect, raw food diets can improve circulation to flush out all the bad toxins from your body and in turn reform the pigments in the eyes. Such effects may cause people to experience a surprising change in their vision as well as their eye color. According to “Living and Raw Foods,” the iris can change its pigment by the body regenerating new cells.

This topic is still being actively researched and needs more tested clinical studies to scientifically back up such claims. However, we all know that science doesn’t always walk in hand with experience. So many practitioners adhere to the idea that an iris’ color may shift through green, blue and, finally, light gray due to a healing system based on raw food diet.

Besides, the Ayurvedic view of the eye color is that the color of your eyes reflects what you have in “excess” (excess in the astral or spiritual body) and there is no science to argue with that!

A blogger Kristina Carrillo-Bucaram claims that eating a raw food diet turned her eyes from “a very dark café brown color” to a “hazel color with almost a honey lining around my iris and they’re actually starting to turn blue.” About a year ago she posted a video online which has had over 1.3 million views now.

In Kristina’s video, you can see the photos of her when she was a child and then a young adult with dark brown eyes. And then… there she is, 8 years later, with hazel eyes which are starting to turn blue!

If you are curious to see for yourself, here is a video about it:

Kristina is not the only person, whose story about the eye color after changing to a raw foods diet can be found online. It’s not just about the color of your eyes, it is about health; and our eyes can provide us with a lot of information about our bodies. For example, some areas of an eye may contain a yellowish coating which can indicate sulphuric acid levels in the body and the level of acidity in the organs and glands.

For some people, this yellow color can cover the entire iris, which will make an eye appear brown or hazel when the true color underneath is actually green or blue. When you keep detoxing your body for a long time by switching to a raw vegan diet, your body gradually heals itself and the true color of the eyes finally shows itself.
