These three versions of “milk” are all delicious options to pour on a bowl of cereal or add to a fruit smoothie! Each mylk has a different taste and level of creaminess. You might have to try out all three to figure out which one you love best! Unlike dairy milk, which can feed viruses and bacteria, or trigger inflammation and allergies, these tasty homemade alternatives are simple, quick, and flood your body with the nourishment it craves. If your child struggles with dairy or soy protein allergies, he or she may love one of these flavorful mylks instead.
Bananas can be found at any grocery store, and once brown speckles appear on the skin, they are ready to be eaten, frozen, or blended into a mylk! Bananas are 76% water and packed with vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C and B6. This “brain food” is a tremendous support for heavy thinkers. The anti-fungal and antibiotic compounds found in bananas aid in terminating viruses and make this fruit an excellent choice for anyone struggling with a chronic illness. Adding bananas into your diet can support the healing of irritable bowel syndrome, neurological disorders, diarrhea, atherosclerosis, osteoporosis, coronary artery disease, chron’s disease, stroke, and kidney, colon, and lung cancers.

Every day many of us are faced with threats that have become a well known and accepted part of our lives. Threats like falling off your bike, slipping on ice, or catching a cold or flu. While these can indeed be real threats, there are other dangers that are unknown, or their true nature and gravity are not understood by medical science and research.
These are the threats, dangers, and concerns to your health and well-being I am here to share with you today. I call them The Unforgiving Four, and they are wreaking havoc on the health and livelihood of anyone and everyone, here and across the world. It is so critical that we all know about The Unforgiving Four that I wrote about in detail in my new book Life-Changing Foods: Save Yourself And The Ones You Love With The Hidden Healing Powers Of Fruits And Vegetables. You and I, and every single person on this planet, faces these threats today, and yet only the people I've been able to reach know how serious these threats and dangers and the destruction they are causing are. Wouldn't you like to know for you own safety what could potentially be hurting you? It's your right to know about them so you can have the freedom to heal.
The Unforgiving Four are the most serious and merciless health threats we face and the true causes of the "epicdemic" of chronic and mystery illness we are experiencing today. They're also quickly getting worse with each generation. Right now we are at a pivotal point and if we don't quickly become aware of The Unforgiving Four and how we can address them correctly, there will be even greater consequences to our well-being and survival.
Have you been suffering or struggling with an illness, disease, or symptom? Or has a friend, family member, work colleague, or someone else you know? We all need to know about The Unforgiving Four because they affect all of us, and they will continue to do so until we know enough to protect ourselves and our loved ones.
What Are The Unforgiving Four?
The four key factors causing an endless amount of suffering today. The Unforgiving Four are the Viral Explosion, DDT, Radiation, and Toxic Heavy Metals.
Each of these four health threats can wreak havoc all on their own, but when a combination of them are present in us, they can really get a strong foothold and cause an incredible amount of suffering over time. Oftentimes, someone won't even think they have anything wrong with their health until later in life when they experience a rush of symptoms for the first time and chalk it up to menopause, are diagnosed with a disease, or the doctor doesn't know why you have depression, headaches, anxiety, fatigue, or another mystery symptom and says it's all in their head. Really it's The Unforgiving Four at work.
If you are thinking that none of these four factors are affecting you, it's important to better understand how they work. We all are dealing with various levels of at least one or two of them. That's because they are passed through our bloodlines to each new generation. Don't confuse this with genetics. They aren't passed through our genes, but at conception and in the womb, and then we are exposed to and contract more of The Unforgiving Four over our lifetimes.
This is new information straight from Spirit that I am bringing to you and others for the first time ever in history, and it's just a fraction of what I share in my new book Life-Changing Foods. This is advanced information decades ahead of science that you must be aware of so you can protect yourself and your loved ones, now and in the future.
The Viral Explosion
I've been doing everything I can to watch your back and bring you never before known or understood information about Epstein-Barr virus. When I introduced the real truth about Epstein-Barr virus to everyone and exposed the symptoms caused by Epstein-Barr for the first time, I knew it would be life-changing for so many people struggling with all kinds of mystery illnesses and symptoms, and help them to finally heal. By learning about how Epstein-Barr virus works and how to truly heal from it, you become the experts that I trust to deliver this information over time to help yourself, your family, friends, and others you care about. Along with the Epstein-Barr virus, there are other viral strains causing symptoms that are completely unknown by medical science and research that I have introduced. It's crucial for you to learn about these viruses.
So many of us are struggling with mystery symptoms and illnesses today because of the viral explosion. Illnesses like fibromyalgia, ehlers-danlos syndrome, PCOS, multiple sclerosis, thyroid cancer, bloating, stomach pain, UTI's, chronic fatigue syndrome, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, heart palpitations, floaters, blurry vision, dizziness, insomnia, memory loss, rheumatoid arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, Raynaud's syndrome, tinnitus, migraines, vertigo, hot flashes, brain fog, fatigue, lupus, Lyme disease, insomnia, aches and pains, depression, anxiety, hair loss, weight gain, infertility, plantar fasciitis, and fatty liver. These are just a few of the thousands of illnesses and symptoms we are experiencing. It breaks my heart to see a mom struggling to care for her children because of these viral symptoms. It's tragic.
My mission is to inform you and as many people as possible about the viruses that create so many of our symptoms and illnesses, and the rest of The Unforgiving Four. We must understand what we are really dealing with in order to know how to effectively recover our health and get our lives back. We don't have any time to wait. Too many people are sick or symptomatic, and the stressful nature of life today along with the other Unforgiving Four factors means we are especially susceptible to all kinds of sicknesses. Why do I care so much and take this so seriously? Because it doesn't feel good to have a symptom or be sick. Nobody wants to be sick. Nobody wants to have a tummy ache, headache, or severe fatigue. Knowing how we can truly protect ourselves matters.
There was a time when DDT was considered healthy and celebrated. It was practically force fed to our forefathers to eat, drink, and be showered in. Now we know that it's one of the most toxic chemicals to ever have been created. While it is outlawed in many countries now, it's still being used in many places around the world, which means it's still in the air and getting into our bodies. The damage created by DDT in the past also hasn't gone away.
It's still entrenched in our environment and bodies, and passed down through our bloodlines. DDT and other pesticides, and herbicides leave our immune systems weak and suppressed so that pathogens and other contaminants can get an advantage. But there are tools we can use to get DDT and its herbicide and pesticide cousins out of our system, and this is just one part of what I cover in my book Life-Changing Foods.
We are more saturated with radiation today than ever before in history. More than during Hiroshima or Fukushima even. Only a fraction of the radiation fallout from catastrophic events like these has begun to fall on us. Then there's our constantly connected culture that creates its own level of radiation. This is just two of the ways we receive radiation. There's also many other ways we can be directly exposed, along with environmental fallout, food and water supply contamination, and inheritance of our parents' and grandparents' exposure.
Radiation is a leading contributor to cancers, endocrine system dysfunction, bone diseases such as osteopenia and osteoporosis, bone spurs, immune system failure, and skin diseases. It's also a trigger for every other illness that can affect you. Thankfully, It is possible to remove radiation from your body with the healing foods listed in my book Life-Changing Foods.
Toxic Heavy Metals
Did you know you could have mercury in your system? It's commonly known that there are toxic heavy metals that we are exposed to in our environment and products we use. What's not known is the extent of the damage they do to our health, and how they are also passed down through our bloodlines. Mercury, a particularly devastating and obnoxious heavy metal, could have been mined a thousand years ago but now be sitting in our brains causing neurological conditions and diseases. Are you experiencing brain fog, depression, or anxiety?
These are classic symptoms of heavy metal poisoning. In fact, the mercury will be even more damaging now than it was a thousand years ago as I describe in my book Life-Changing Foods. Toxic heavy metals are responsible for some of the most troublesome diseases we are experiencing today, like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and chronic depression. Again, there is a way to remove metals out of your body. You just have to know how, and so much of the information out there is unfortunately inaccurate.
The Way Out Of The Darkness
Learning about how The Unforgiving Four are affecting us is very sobering. These are hard truths but it's important to become aware of them so you can also learn how to protect yourself and your loved ones. Spirit and I put as much healing information as possible into my new book Life-Changing Foods. I packed it full with information that's never been released before so you can arm yourself with the ways to lift yourself and those you care about out of the darkness using food.
Healing is possible. We just have to learn how to step ourselves out into the light once again and learn new information that's not on the internet, in any other book, or at the doctor's office. I'm here for this reason. Nothing matters more to me and I will keep doing the work I do every day until I can't do it anymore. I want you to have as much information as possible so that we can all support each other and the future generations to know the truth and heal.
I know this information can seem heavy, but ignoring it and pretending everything is great and positive is insulting to you. Others are telling me about a lot of leaders and experts in the health and personal development movement right now glossing over how hard things are for people, using positive talk, while we really do have symptoms and conditions, and we really are struggling. Being positive is important, but we need to be truthful and honest and learn how we can heal so we can move forward.
I'm so proud of you. I believe in you, and I know we can do this together. Please know I truly, truly care about you and your loved ones and family. When I woke up this morning, I said to Spirit, "I'm in this. I have to make sure everyone has the information they need." Knowledge is power, and there is a way to heal, and it's time that you and everybody else knows how.

Mac & Cheese is a meal that many Americans have grown up on. With its warm, comforting, creamy texture and flavor, it's usually a family favorite. Most Mac & Cheese recipes can leave you feeling sluggish and heavy, and contain ingredients that don't support healing, like gluten, dairy, and added preservatives. Try this delicious and hearty homemade version instead. This Mac & Cheese recipe uses rice or bean pasta and a creamy cashew based cheese to mimic the traditional recipe without the health consequences. The addition of broccoli adds extra nutrients and healing properties, and a beautiful green pop of color.
Broccoli is packed with anti-cancer compounds such as sulforaphane and indole-3-carbinol, which are known to help prevent stomach, colon, liver, breast, skin, and prostate cancers. Broccoli is excellent for strengthening and sharpening cognitive abilities such as memory, focus, and concentrations skills. It is also great for helping to prevent Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Broccoli is highly beneficial for the nervous system and is known to ease migraines, hypertension, anxiety, and nervous ticks. It contains natural antihistamine properties and is fantastic for warding off seasonal allergies, watery eyes, sinusitis, sinus infections, colds, flu, and bronchitis. Broccoli is well known for its ability to protect against heart disease and reduce the risk of atherosclerosis, strokes, and heart attacks. It can also help to lower high blood pressure and maintain good cardiovascular health.
Cashews are high in protein and are a rich source of vitamin B-complex and essential minerals such as iron, selenium, zinc, and copper. They are also packed with anti-cancer compounds called proanthocyanidins that have the ability to starve tumors and stop cancer cells from dividing. Cashews are highly beneficial for lowering blood pressure, preventing heart attacks, preventing gallstones, reducing the frequency of migraines, providing energy boosts, strengthening bones, and promoting healthy skin and hair. They are also excellent for the nervous system and they are known help keep muscles and nerves relaxed and free from tension and constriction. They can also help the body become more flexible and aid in elasticity of the tendons, muscles, and joints. Cashews have the ability to satiate hunger which decreases overeating and aids in weight loss and weight management.
Enjoy this recipe with family or friends. It's perfect alongside a crisp green salad of lettuces like mesclun, romaine, or butter lettuce.
12 oz elbow shaped rice or bean pasta
2 cups cashews
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 cloves garlic
1 large date
1 1/2 cups of water

Melons are one of the most healing foods available to us on this planet. They are overflowing with critical healing nutrients that are are predigested before they even enter your body. This makes melons perfect for anyone who has a health condition, chronic illness, and symptom.
Not only do the nutrients in melons immediately enter into the body and begin to rejuvenate the brain and other organs, they also protect the central nervous system, support healthy bowel and digestive tract function, and are a fantastic aid for heart, liver and kidney conditions. Melons are also one of the most hydrating foods in existence. As I talk about in my book Life-Changing Foods, they are essentially purified balls of water that also contain nutrients that can help bring us back from sickness.
There’s many different types and varieties of melon, each with their own unique flavor, color and nutrient profile. Some of the more well known melons include watermelon, honeydew, and cantaloupe, all of which are incredible health supporters. Some lesser known varieties include honey loupe, crenshaw, santa claus, galia, canary, apollo, honey globe, jade dew, and many more. Look out at farmer’s markets and in supermarkets for different varieties and see which you enjoy best.
Today’s recipe is a fun way to try a range of melons, or stick with just your favorite. These Melon Pops are easy and quick to make, and are such a fun way to get more of this fruit’s healing properties into your body. It’s best to eat melon and these Melon Pops on an empty stomach and away from other foods for optimal digestion. Melon digests so quickly that eating it with or after heavier foods can leave you with a tummy ache. This makes it the perfect breakfast food!
6 cups any variety of melon
1 tablespoon raw honey (optional)
Blend together 6 cups of melon of choice and the optional tablespoon of raw honey until smooth. Strain through a nut milk bag or fine sieve. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze for 2 hours or until frozen solid. Enjoy!

Who doesn't love hummus? It's one of the first foods to go at parties for good reason! Hummus is a delicious, creamy, and satisfying dip for veggies, crackers, wraps, sandwiches, or on top of salad. This recipe is oil free and low in fat, making it a great hummus option to support weight loss.
This recipe is simple and easy to make with just six easy to find ingredients. Four of the ingredients in this recipe are the real stars due to their incredible health benefits:
Sesame seeds are a high energy food that help to provide optimum health and wellness. They are an excellent source of high quality protein which is most beneficial for growth, especially in children. Sesame seeds are also high in minerals such as calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium, selenium, and copper. In fact, did you know that just a 1/4 cup of sesame seeds provides MORE calcium than 1 cup of milk? The copper in sesame seeds offers anti-inflammatory benefits which can help to relieve swelling in auto-immune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia, and the niacin enhances GABA activity in the brain, reducing anxiety, and providing for a better night’s sleep. Sesame seeds nourish the nervous system, strengthen hormone production, support the cardiovascular system, benefit the digestive system, and reduce fatigue. They also support healthy skin, hair, and nails.
Garlic has amazingly high levels of vitamins and minerals including vitamin C and B-6 and minerals such as selenium, calcium, copper, and iron. Garlic also contains very strong antibiotic, anti-fungal, anti-cancer, and anti-viral properties. One raw crushed clove of garlic contains the antibiotic equivalent of 100,000 units of penicillin and has been proven to be more effective than both penicillin and tetracycline in suppressing certain types of disease carrying agents. Garlic contains a compound called allicin which has been shown to help significantly lower cholesterol and blood pressure by inhibiting the HMG-CoA reductase enzyme within the liver cells and blocking platelet clot formation in the blood vessels. Garlic’s anti-inflammatory properties make it vital for autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, COPD, lupus, fibromyalgia, lyme disease, bursitis, shingles, and chronic fatigue syndrome.
Cumin is one of the best spices to therapeutically use for digestive disorders such as indigestion, dyspepsia, stomach cramps, gastritis, bloating, constipation, nausea, and flatulence. Cumin seeds contain good amounts of vitamins E, A and B-complex and is an excellent source of minerals such as zinc, selenium, iron, copper, calcium, and manganese. Cumin helps the body absorb and assimilate nutrients much more efficiently. It also contains anti-cancer and anti-tumor properties and have beens shown to significantly reduce the risk of stomach, colon, and liver tumors. It has also been shown to detoxify the body by boosting liver and kidney function. It is known to help benefit colds, flu, insomnia, asthma, pneumonia, chronic bronchitis, muscle spasms, and arthritis. For pregnant woman and new mothers, cumin has been known to help relieve morning sickness and to strengthen milk production for breast feeding.
Lemons are a powerful healing fruit that contain phenomenal antibiotic, antiseptic, and anti-cancer properties. Lemons are rich in vitamins C and B-complex and minerals such as iron, calcium, magnesium, silicon, copper, and potassium. They are considered to be a wonderful tonic and can help to cleanse and detoxify the entire body. Although lemons have an acidic taste they actually have a very strong alkaline reaction on the body and can help to alkalize blood, cells, lymph, organs, and tissues. Lemons are known to help destroy putrefactive bacteria in the mouth and intestines which can help alleviate flatulence, indigestion, and constipation. Lemons contain a compound called limonene which is used to dissolve gallstones and kidney stones and can help to fight oral, lung, skin, breast, stomach, and colon cancer. Lemons are also rich in bioflavonoids which can significantly boost the immune system and reduce inflammation in the body.
4 cups cooked garbanzo beans
1/2 cup tahini
4 cloves garlic
2 tbsp lemon juice
3 tsp cumin
1 1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup water
Optional: 1/8 tsp paprika
In a food processor, combine the garbanzo beans, tahini, garlic, lemon juice, cumin and sea salt. Process until roughly combined.
Continue processing while streaming in up to 1/2 cup of water until desired consistency is reached. If desired, served sprinkled with paprika. Enjoy!

This smoothie is not only delicious, it's also perfectly designed to include five key ingredients that work together in synergy to pull heavy metals like mercury, lead, aluminum, nickel, copper, and cadmium out of your organs where they accumulate.
Toxic heavy metals are virtually everywhere, and are present in things we come in contact with every day, such as aluminum cans and aluminum foil, batteries, metal cookware, old paint, and even the foods we eat. For instance, pesticides and herbicides (which are hard to completely avoid even on a strict organic diet), are a common source of heavy metals. As a result, most of us are carrying around heavy metals that have been with us for almost our whole lives and which have burrowed deep inside our tissues.
Unfortunately, it is these “old” metals, the ones that have been lurking in our system for prolonged periods of time, that pose the greatest threat. For example, over time toxic heavy metals can oxidize, causing damage to surrounding tissue and promoting inflammation. They literally poison our bodies, and can inflict damage on virtually every system and organ, including our brain, liver, digestive system, and other parts of our nervous system. Toxic heavy metals put an immense burden on our immune system, leaving us vulnerable to a variety of illnesses.
While toxins of every kind are harmful, heavy metals pose a unique threat. Not only are they damaging in their own right, they are also a form of neurotoxin (a poison that disrupts nerve function and confuses your immune system). Heavy metal neurotoxins can inflame and irritate our central nervous system (especially our brain), causing multiple symptoms such as memory loss, brain fog, fatigue, and depression. Toxic heavy metals can also promote inflammation in the digestive tract, releasing poisons into our gut as well. As if this isn’t bad enough, heavy metals also serve as a source of food for viruses, bacteria, parasites, and other pathogens in our body.
For example, heavy metals can serve as a feeding ground for Streptococcus A or B, E. coli, C. difficile, H. pylori, and yeast cells. This can create an overgrowth of multiple bacteria in our gut, resulting in a condition known as SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), which is characterized by bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation (or both), and can lead to nutrient deficiencies. Additionally, when viruses such as Epstein-Barr and shingles feed off toxic heavy metals, this can produce symptoms such as tingling, numbness, fatigue, anxiety, heart palpitations, ringing in the ears, dizziness and vertigo, as well as neck pain, knee pain, foot pain, pain in the back of the head, and a variety of other aches and pains that are often attributed to other causes.
It's virtually impossible not to take in a certain amount of these toxic heavy metals in our modern era, so it's vitally important to our health that we get them out before they can wreak further havoc on our health. Thankfully, it's relatively simple to remove them from our organs if we consume the right foods to do so. Adding the following all-star team of foods to your diet and being diligent in your efforts to consume them will go a long way toward ridding your body of heavy metals:
Hawaiian Spirulina: This edible blue-green algae draws out heavy metals from your brain, central nervous system, and liver, and soaks up heavy metals extracted by barley grass juice extract powder. Take 2 teaspoons mixed in water, coconut water, or juice.
Barley grass juice extract: prepares the mercury for complete absorption by the spirulina. This nutritive grass has the ability to draw heavy metals out of your spleen, intestinal tract, pancreas, thyroid, and reproductive system. Drink 1-2 teaspoons mixed into coconut water or juice.
Cilantro: Goes deep into hard-to-reach places, extracting metals from yesteryear (so it’s great for that mercury inheritance you’re carrying around!). Blend one cup in a smoothie or juice, or add to salad or guacamole.
Wild blueberries: Draw heavy metals out of your brain tissue, healing and repairing any gaps created by oxidation when the heavy metals are removed. It is important to use wild blueberries, as they possess unique phytonutrients with special detoxifying capabilities. The potent antioxidants in wild blueberries help reverse any oxidative damage left behind by the heavy metal removal. This is especially important for your brain tissue—in fact, wild blueberries are the most powerful food for halting or in some cases reversing Alzheimer’s and dementia. Eat at least one cup daily. Note: while cultivated blueberries are nutritious, they lack the metal-drawing ability of the wild blueberries. Wild blueberries can be found in the freezer section of most supermarkets.
Atlantic dulse: In addition to mercury, this edible seaweed binds to lead, aluminum, copper, cadmium, and nickel. Unlike other seaweeds, Atlantic dulse is a powerful force for removing mercury on its own. Atlantic dulse goes into deep, hidden places of the digestive tract and gut, seeking out mercury, binding to it, and never releasing it until it leaves the body. Eat two tablespoons of flakes daily, or an equal amount of strips if it’s in whole-leaf form. Note: As it comes from the ocean, if you are concerned about the dulse itself having mercury, be aware that Atlantic sea dulse will not release any mercury it might possess into the body. It holds on to the mercury as it works its way through, and even grabs onto other metals along the way and drives them out as well. Atlantic dulse is a critical part of the team because it can hang out near the finish line (i.e., our colon), waiting for the other foods that have been grabbing on to heavy metals along the way. It serves as emergency backup, helping ensure that all the heavy metals that made it as far as the colon actually leave the body.
Today's smoothie recipe gives you a simple and tasty way to get all of these five foods into your daily diet in just one go. Drink this smoothie daily for optimal benefits.
Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie
2 cups wild blueberries
1 cup cilantro
1 cup orange juice
1 tsp barley grass juice powder
1 tsp spirulina
1 small handful of Atlantic dulse
Optional: water to blend
In a high speed blender, blend all ingredients until smooth. If a thinner consistency is desired, add up to 1 cup of water. Enjoy!

Eye health conditions have many different causes that vary dependent on the symptoms you’re dealing with, and what else is going on in your body. Many of them can heal. However there are some commonalities across the different types of conditions too.
Whenever there is an eye health condition, there will also be a lack of antioxidants, mineral deficiencies, and/or free radicals in the body from oxidizing heavy metals, pesticides, and other toxins. Anyone with eye health issues would benefit from increasing the antioxidants and minerals in their diet by eating more fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices, and wild foods.
This condition is typically caused by an antioxidant and mineral deficiency so it’s important to focus on bringing in more of these nutrients from fresh fruits and vegetables.
When it’s not macular degeneration, blurry eyes can be a neurological problem that’s caused by a number of other issues like blood toxicity, a liver condition, heavy metal toxicity, or viral issues in the liver that affect the central nervous system.It can also be from blood sugar issues like hypoglycemia, inconsistent blood sugar issues, glucose deficiency, and more. Diabetic conditions develop from the adrenals and liver, which can lead to blurry vision. It’s important to increase fruits and vegetables and consider lowering animal foods. You can apply the information in the Adrenal Fatigue chapter of my book Medical Medium and my suggestions on supporting the liver.
If a child needs glasses early in their life, it’s typically from mercury they have inherited from generations of the family live. You can read my book Medical Medium for more information on this. Mercury disorientates the eyes, throwing off the eye muscles, eye responses, and some of the nerves behind the eye. Children can need glasses overnight whereas some older people need glasses later in life from a slower rate of toxic mercury build up over time.
A specific variety of Epstein-Barr virus causes glaucoma. This variety may not cause many health challenges other than some fatigue until someone is much older when they can get glaucoma. An anti-viral protocol for EBV like the one described in my book is important.
This symptom is typically caused by the Shingles virus. You may even have tingling, tickling sensations on the sides of the face which causes your eyes to burn, squint, or tingle. The Shingles protocol I outline in my book is very important.
White or black floating spots in your vision are caused by a lot of neurotoxins floating around in the body from Epstein-Barr virus. EBV shortcuts currents and electrical currents that go to the eye causing these floaters.
If you have trigeminal neuralgia pain up the neck and jaw, you might get told you have TMJ. It can also run to the eye causing pain from inflamed nerves, which is really caused by Shingles.
Eye Related Migraines
These painful migraines are due to a combination of viral issues and heavy metal toxicity. You can follow my protocols for both of these to help recover your health.
The main culprit causing styes is a bacterial infection from streptococcus. Strep sits dormant in the sinuses and comes into the eyes when the immune system is down. You can also get styes when you pick up a fresh strain of strep from dirty places. Also, when you pick up a flu virus, it can feed any congestion in the body and cause an outbreak of strep. Staph bacteria can be the other cause of styes.
Optic Nerve Issues
