DR. Michael Lange started Lange eye care and Associates March 15 1993. He opened 13 eye care centers in Florida and credits his success to hard work, dedication, sacrifice and nutritional eye care . Dr Michael Lange is an optometric physician and also a certified nutrition specialist. He has developed an extremiely busy geriatric population based eye care practice in The Villages Florida called The Lange Eye Institute. Dr Lange says one thing almost everyone of his patients has in common is dry eye . The Lange Eye Institute and Dr Michael Lange have developed an all natural approach to dry eyes that brings patients from all over the country. Patients are looking for alternative natural cost effective approaches to help their dry eyes instead of expensive drugs and procedures that are promoted strongly in the eye care industry. Dr Michael Lange states we spend time with patients analyzing their diet and looking for food sensitivities , teach lid hygiene, recommend specific supplements that help decrease oxidation and inflammation in the eye and promote a healthier tear film. We teach natural ways of opening the meibomian glands that will also lead to a healthier test film. Dr Lange states the number one fastest way to help a dry eye patient is to recommend the proper lubrication system! This is the fastest way to get dry eye relief. Most patients are buying multiple otc brands of artificial tears that have heavy synthetic preservatives and can actually irritate the eye if used frequently. Dr Lange has tried every type of artificial tear on the market and now recommends The Oasis Tears family of lubricating eye drops. His two favorite are Oasis Tears Plus and the all new Oasis Tears PF in a unique dropper bottle. Oasis tears seem to last much longer than any other brand on the market and actually have an amazing soothing effect on dry eyes. You can purchase Oasis Tears at The Lange Eye Institute , Fortifeye vitamin distribution center in Ocala or go to http://www.fortifeye.com and order online.Www.fortifeye.com

Fast Safe Weight Loss with Fortifeye Vitamins

How to loose weight quickly and safely by Dr Michael Lange 

Obesity is an epidemic in America and it is a root cause for many diseases.  If you are over weight it increases your risk of general  health problems and ocular disease. Macular degeneration , dry eye,  retinopathy  and glaucoma are all more prevalent in the over weight populations.  Our nation is consuming calorie dense nutrient deficient overly processed foods that are filled with harmful antibiotics, pesticides  and hormones.  To add fuel to the fire we are becoming more sedimentary and lazy.  Loosing weight is simple math, you  must burn more calories than u consume. For every 3500 calories less you intake or burn is equivalent to one pound of weight.  I have developed a system that is simple and works quite well. This system uses the highest quality nutrients available and is not based on any stimulants that will speed up your metabolism and potentially cause other health issues.  I believe if you keep it simple then everyone can follow this and get the results you need.

Our largest meal  traditionally in most Americans is supper and this should be our smallest meal.  A typical supper may consist or spaghetti and meat balls, 2 slices of french bread with butter,  salad with oil and vinegar, glass of sweet tea  and a red wine or cold beer  followed by  desert.  This meal will have between 2500-2700 calories depending on how much u eat. U can easily see that one meal could actually be much higher in calories than this depending on what you eat and how much.

My simple system consists of taking one scoop or Fortifeye Super Protein and one scoop of Fortifeye Blue Green Super food combined with two cups of spring water or well water and gently blending or shaking.  Drink this and take one Fortifeye Super Omega with the shake and one at bedtime . New science indicates  1.5mg- 2mg of omega 3 fish oil enhances weigh loss by increasing fat metabolism.   This combination will give you 20 grams of the highest bio-available whey protein concentrate from grass-fed New Zealand A2 cows with only 120 calories,  a combination of 12 FODMAP free fruits and vegetables  with only 25 calories and  all the omega 3 fatty acids u needs with 12 calories. This is a complete  meal replacement that  has only 157 calories , 3 carbohydrates, 1 gram of sugar and 3.9 grams of fat.  You are getting everything you need for a complete nutrient packed  meal in one drink. The Blue green superfood was made with fruits and vegetables that do not aggravate  Irritable Bowel Syndrome.  If you drink this every day as a replacement for your supper and you were eating the typical american supper you will loose between 4 and 5 pounds per week by following this one simple meal replacement and everything else remains the same in your life.  Once you start the program you will see it is easy to follow. New studies indicate a good whey protein will actually decrease hunger urges and curb your appetite making it easier to follow the plan. This whey protein concentrate will also make u feel better by stimulating the production of your master antioxidant called glutathione.  learn more about Fortifeye super Protein at  www.newzealandwheyproteinconcentrate.com

If you  add a little cardio exercise a half hour a day by biking, walking, swimming , in line skating, elliptical, tread mill or stationary bike you can easily burn and additional 200-400 calories daily. which could  equal another pound of weight loss per week. I also recommend a half hour of sun a day between noon and 2 pm without sun screen to get adequate Vitamin D. Several studies have confirmed a link between vitamin D deficiency and belly fat.  So by getting a little bit of a sun tan it may actually help with the weight loss and make you  look healthier at the same time.

I have 100s of patients that have lost significant amounts of weight safely  by following this simple meal replacement protocol and are healthier today because of this.  This was developed to work well with diabetics, celiac, IBS  and people following the paleo or low carb diet.

You have to have the will power to loose the weight for this to work and you can not eat anything after you have your drink for supper. Only drink water after the Fortifeye  combination and you will see the pounds come off of you very quickly.  Learn more about these 3 Fortifeye products discussed at www.fortifeye.com

I also recommend for Breakfast and lunch following a paleo meal plan.  I always recommend discussing your weight loss goals  with your physician  and  following up with your personal physician as needed.  Drink to your health!!

Glutathione is crucial for good ocular health as well as overall health.

7 Feb

Dr Michael Lange discusses the importance of maintaining Glutathione levels for good eye and overall health.

Glutathione is the “master antioxidant” found in every cell in our body.  Glutathione  levels have a direct impact on our overall health and eye health.  Glutathione is synthesized in the body from 3  amino acids : cysteine, glutamine and glycine.  The specific form of cysteine is a key limiting component of glutathione production since it is relatively rare in the correct form in the  typical American diet. When glutathione levels are deficient the body can not protect the cells against free radical damage and disease.  Rapid aging, compromised immune system and chronic illness is  a direct result of low levels of glutathione.  Research indicates that close to 100 diseases may be related to a deficiency in this Master Antioxidant .  New science also indicates that decreased levels of glutathione may increase the risk for dry eye, glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration.  Glutathione was one of the most common deficiencies found in spectracell intracellular blood analysis  done on patients that had both macular degeneration and dry eyes at The Lange Eye institute .

Glutathione levels drop as we age increasing our risk of compromised immune system and chronic illness.  These levels are highest when we are young and healthy and lowest when we are old and sickly.   Toxins in our environment, food and water we consume daily also negatively impact these levels. Glutathione is the bodies natural detoxifier that is crucial for promoting healthy DNA and mitochondrial functioning.  ATP and energy production  are directly influenced by glutathione levels.

Some symptoms of low  Glutathione levels are : lack of energy, tired, depression, joint pain, dry eyes, dry skin, poor sleep, dizzy spells, brain fog, weakness, skin rashes and frequently sick.

So you can see that maintaining optimal levels of Glutathione is essential for over all wellness and well-being of the entire body and eyes.  If these levels are low then we have a compromised immune system and chronic disease can flourish.  All health care providers should address this potential problem through properly educating the patient on life style modifications and dietary changes however realistically many will not follow these recommendations and fall back into their toxic lifestyles.

I have found one of the best ways to stimulate Glutathione levels is by consuming a non denatured (cold processed) whey protein concentrate from grass-fed cows 1-2 times a day.  This type of whey protein contains the Tri peptide of amino acids necessary for production of the master antioxidant.  The correct form of cysteine (not cystine)  along with glutamine and glycine is necessary for this conversion.  It is important to use a concentrate not an isolate, the whey concentrate has higher levels of immune building cofactors and is less processed than the isolate.  The cows need to be grass-fed all year round not partially fed grass and grains.  The cow’s milk must be free of pesticide, hormones and antibiotics .  I have also been impressed with whey protein concentrate derived from the milk of New Zealand A2 cows.  A2 cows are cows that are relatively difficult to find and have not gone through any genetic mutations over the last few 1000 years, each cows DNA is checked to make sure they are an A2 cow.  It is very difficult to find a non denatured whey protein concentrate from New Zealand grass-fed A2 cows for a reasonable price with 20 grams of protein.  This is why I decided to develop Fortifeye Super Protein.  Fortifeye Super protein is non gmo, non denatured, cold filtered, gluten-free, soy free, sugar-free, low carb, corn free and free of pesticide, hormones and antibiotics.  If you want kick-start your immune system and give the fuel  your body needs to promote wellness then consider Fortifeye Super Protein.  you can learn more about this bio active whey protein here  www.newzealandwheyproteinconcentrate.com

NEW FODMAP FRIENDLY ORGANIC BLUE GREEN SUPERFOOD DEVELOPED BY DR MICHAEL LANGE AND FORTIFEYE VITAMINS

Fortifeye Organic Blue Green Superfood

Dr Michael Lange has been taking care of patients since March 1993 and  has seen how poor diet has negative impact on his patients.  He has been involved in nutritional research to support ocular and overall health.   More and more people are plagued with digestive problems and are not fueling their bodies with the beneficial nutrients to promote overall wellness. The typical person today is eating overly processed, calorie dense, nutrient deficient , fast food filled with pesticides, hormones and antibiotics.  Dr. Lange recommends an all organic gluten-free paleo type of diet to his patients, family, friends and radio listeners. However even on this particular type of diet many people will still notice significant bloating, tenderness in the abdomen, belching and gas after eating this type of diet. Many of these people have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and specific fruits  and vegetables  can cause these symptoms as they go thru the digestive system.   Dr. Lange and Fortifeye Vitamins decided to research and develop a powdered super food using all organic and non gmo fruits  and vegetables that people could consume that were on a low carb diet, diabetics and people with IBS. People with IBS will react poorly to certain fruits and vegetables that actually cause fermentation and gas in their digestive system.  These type of foods are called FODMAP which stands for Fermentable oligosaccharides, di-saccharides, mono-saccharides and polyols.  These are very common foods in the typical American diet and new research indicates that restricting these foods may benefit irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)  and other functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGID).

Fortifeye Organic Blue Green Super food  is  an all organic, gluten-free, non gmo powdered combination of specific fruits and vegetables that are both Paleo and FODMAP friendly.  Everything including the flavor system was taken into consideration in the development of this powder that can be mixed with water or beverage of choice.  All nutrients are sourced from America and it will be available in chocolate and berry flavors.  Many greens drinks will use inexpensive binders, bulking agents and fillers such as flax, psyllium, acacia, oat bran etc  to make the customer think they are getting healthy fiber and  more product per scoop when in reality both soluble and insoluble fibers may block the absorption of valuable nutrients.   Fortifeye Vitamins uses none of these fiber fillers in their new Organic Blue Green Superfood.  Many of the greens drinks on the market will also use 30-40 different nutrients with only small window dressing amounts of each nutrient or will use a “proprietary blend” so u don’t  know what you are actually getting! When purchasing  a powdered super food you want to know the exact amount of each nutrient that is in the product.  Fortifeye  Organic Super Food shows you on the label exactly how much of each nutrient is in one scoop. This new Blue green super food is a combination of Spirulina, kale, spinach, barley grass juice, wheat grass juice, parsley, cucumbers, peppermint leaf, blue berries, strawberries, cranberries and cinnamon.  These particular fruits and vegetables were picked to be compliant with Paleo and FODMAP diets .  This combination also works well synergistically with potent anti oxidants profiles to promote overall wellness in the eyes and body.  When combined with Fortifeye Super Protein and Fortifeye Super omega, this superfood  can be used as a meal replacement.  Fortifeye Organic Blue Green Superfood will be available by March 2016. Fortifeye Vitamins released their new bio active whey protein concentrate from grass fed New Zealand A2  Cows in November 2015.  learn more about Fortifeye Super Protein here :  www.newzealandwheyproteinconcentrate.com

 

Why I developed a new grass fed whey protein concentrate.

Why I developed a new grass fed whey protein concentrate by Dr Michael Lange

After years of nutritional research with macular degeneration and dry eye patients I found a large percentage of these patients were deficient in glutathione. Most of these patients were lacking the specific amino acids necessary to stimulate glutathione production do to their poor diets. I also found the best way to stimulate glutathione was for these patients to consume a non denatured whey protein concentrate once or twice daily. I rapidly found out all whey protein is not created equal. I have developed my reputation of developing the highest quality supplements in the industry and not cutting any corners in the development of nutritional supplements. I have found after working with patients for nearly 25 years that the vast majority are not getting good quality protein during the day especially for breakfast. When I started to reccomend a whey protein supplement to my patients I found that a really good quality protein with a decent concentration was hard to find for an affordable price. I started to research different types of whey protein and found out most whey protein is overly processed and comes from cows that are fed genetically modified grains,filled with pesticides, antibiotics, synthetic sweeteners, binders and hormones. I also found that most cows are A1 cows that have gone thru a genetic mutation altering the beta casein protein in the milk causing many digestive issues and other potential health problems. After extensive research I wanted a whey protein that came from A2 cows that graze year round on pesticide free grass and are not given antibiotics or hormones of any type. I also elected to use a whey protein concentrate instead of a whey protein isolate. The whey concentrate is the least processed form of whey protein that has not been stripped of the good fats, immunoglobulins ,minerals and enzymes. Whey protein isolates are overly processed and stripped of the valuable anti aging immunoglobulins. I also wanted a non denatured whey protein concentrate to maintain the natural quality of the whey protein the way God intended it. Non Denatured whey protein has the highest biological value of any protein. I found with my patients one of the best ways to stimulate glutathione is by consuming a non denatured whey protein concentrate daily. When protein is heated or denatured it converts covalent bonded cysteine to cystine a much less bio-available form of the amino acid. Covalent bonded cysteine is the most important amino acid responsible for the production of glutathione. Glutathione is crucial at all ages for a strong immune system. Lastly I decided to use New Zealand Grass fed A2 cows as the source for Fortifeye Super Protein because these cows met all of the criteria I required for the perfect protein I can stand behind and trust. A2 cows milk have not gone through a genetic mutation that alters the protein causing the digestive issues and other potential health problems associated with A1 cows milk. I worked for some time on a natural organic flavor system combined with non gmo sunflower lecithin to make both the vanilla and chocolate flavors delicious and creamy. Fortifeye Super Protein since it is grass fed year round has a higher ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 than a grain fed cows milk. This higher omega 3 ratio is crucial when dealing with patients with dry eye. Also since this is a grass fed concentrate it is much higher in CLA (good fat) and Lactoferrin (muti-functional protein) both have been found to be lower in dry eye patients. Making a smoothie in the am for breakfast using Fortifeye Super Protein or another non denatured whey protein concentrate from grass fed New Zealand A2 cows is a great way to start the am. I also recommend drinking another smoothie within 30 minutes of working out to maximize the results of your workout. Many of my patients have improved dry eye symptoms , lost  fat  and gained muscle when they have started following some simple life style adjustments and added a daily smoothie using this type of protein. I developed Fortifeye Super Protein so doctors and consumers now have a whey protein concentrate they can trust. You can purchase Fortifeye Super protein online at www.fortifeye.com or thru any physician that carries Fortifeye Supplements.  learn more science behind Fortifeye Super Protein here:  www.newzealandwheyproteinconcentrate.com

Is the blue light u are being exposed to daily from your computer, tablet, smart phone, television and indoor lighting harming you?

2 Aug

Dr Michael Lange of Lange Eye Care and Associates and Fortifeye Vitamin discusses the potential harm blue light is causing and how a lens called  Blue Light Defense may  be the answer.  Blue Light protection is a hot new topic!

Studies are now proving that a specific wave length of light in the blue-violet  spectrum is harmful to our eyes and possibly our entire body.  This blue-violet light that is being produced and emitted by smart phones, computers, tablets, over head indoor lighting and television to mention a few.  All of us on a daily basis are exposed to extreme levels of this potentially harmful blue light.  Blue light nearest the range of 400-420 nm seems to have the most destructive effects on the retina in the eye.   These blue light rays not only may cause early aging in the eye with cataract formation at a younger age  and earlier signs of macular degeneration but new studies also indicate these blue light frequencies of light may have some negative effects on our general health. New studies indicate this evening light exposure especially  blue light exposure may interfere with our sleep patterns.   To be able to filter these harmful blue light rays by wearing a pair of glasses that has a lens that absorbs the harmful blue light was only a dream a few years ago.   Blocking and filtering the harmful blue light ( Blue Light Defense)  is now a reality. Blue light protection  is a hot topic in all of the continuing education seminars for eye care providers.  Many companies now have lenses that claim to block and filter the blue light. One must be very careful when shopping for blue light protective lenses.  First and foremost find out how much of the blue light and at what frequency in nanometers is actually being blocked. Many companies are selling only coatings that will have a minimal filtering effect  on the blue light and may block only small percents of the harmful blue light. Also u must make sure the lenses are cosmetically appealing to you. Some of these new generation Blue blocking lenses are yellow, yellow-brown, orange ,red or purple and may be cosmetically unappealing to you and actually may decrease the transmission of light into the eye .  Blue Light Defense lenses are one of the most exciting break thrus in the optical industry!  This is a lens that is almost clear and blocks over 99% of the wave lengths of blue light from 400-420nm. Theses lenses also block a good portion of the blue light all the way to 450 nm.  These blue light absorbing properties are actually throughout the lens in the monomer not a coating.  This lens comes in trivex material, 1.60 and 1.67 high index.  Dr Michael Lange says this is a true anti aging lens, “to be able to offer a lens to our patients that filters some of the most damaging rays of light and is almost totally clear is absolutely amazing!”    Dr Lange has been using this lens with his patients since November 2014 and states that patients comment all the time on how happy they are that purchased this particular lens. Many patients will state that their eye strain has been reduced significantly while working on the computer and many also state they are sleeping better.  Dr Lange was the first to use this new lens in the country but states many eye Doctors will be offering Blue Light Defense to their patients in the end of 2015.   Dr Lange recommends parents  purchase these lenses in no prescription for their children that don’t need a prescription that are on a digital app like smart phone or tablet throughout the day. He also says it is a no brainer to use this material  in all prescription eye wear. Why wouldnt u??  Here is a link  to purchase  non prescription Blue Light Defense  lenses and frame combo.  This price is only a short term  introductory price since the frame alone sells for this price and the lenses are basically free.  The internet is selling many  blue filtering lenses for a very discounted price however remember “you get what you pay for”.  Most of the blue filtering lenses are filtering a very small amount and virtually useless. Make sure you look for Blue Light Defense.    www.bluelightdefense.com

Omega 3, Astaxanthin and Whey Protein for Dr Eyes discussed be Dr Michael Lange

Fortifeye Super Omega

Fortifeye Super Omega

Dr Michael Lange discusses Omega 3 , Astaxanthin and Non denatured whey protein concentrate for dry eyes.

Dr Michael Lange has been involved in nutritional eye care for over 20 years. He has also been involved in Research and Development of nutritional supplements for the eye care industry. Dr Michael Lange is an Optometrist as well as a Certified Nutritional Specialist and he is the founder of Lange Eye Care and Associates , The Lange Eye Institute and Fortifeye Vitamins.   In 2016 The Lange Eye Institute became  a ” Dry Eye Center of Excellence” . On a daily basis Dr Lange  discusses nutritional supplementation, dietary changes and life style changes to his patients with macular degeneration and dry eye syndrome. The typical patient Dr Lange sees is 78 yo with macular degeneration, glaucoma, dry eyes and a host of systemic illnesses. Dr Lange sees remarkable improvements in ocular health and general health once his patients make these changes he discusses with them.

Dry eye is one of the most common problems patients are plagued with. Dry eye is one ocular condition that can be helped dramatically with proper diet, life style changes and proper supplementation. Dr Lange says there are five things he preaches to his dry eye patients and to his radio listeners on his syndicated talk show “ask the dr”. These five dry eye rules will help just about everyone: 1. Clean the lids, 2. Heat the lids 3. Nutrify the glands  4. Lubricate the eye  5. Hydrate the body. If patients would follow these five steps virtually all dry eye would disappear.

This article is going to expand on nitrification of  the glands. Most Americans are deficient in Omega 3. Most Americans have an omega index of less than 4. The omega index must be over 8 to gain the heart health benefits of omega 3. The omega index is the ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 in the blood. Too much omega 6 creates inflammation. An omega index over 8 is a therapeutic level. Dr Lange developed a Triglyceride form Omega 3 fish oil called Fortifeye Super Omega that in blood studies has proven to bring the omega index in patients under 250 lbs to between 9.2-11 in a two per day dosing. Dr Lange has also used two per day dosing of this fish oil for dry eye patients with great success. Dry eye Syndrome is an inflammatory condition that responds well to the anti inflammatory effects of two per day dosing of Fortifeye Super Omega. The goal is to get a therapeutic dose of omega 3 in just two capsules economically. Fortifeye Vitamins sells Fortifeye Super Omega for $27 for 60 gel caps making it the most cost-effective purest Triglyceride form Omega 3 in the industry. Most competitor omega 3 fish oils you can buy OTC have very low levels of Omega 3 (EPA and DHA) and are an inferior less bio available form called ethyl ester fish oil. Fortifeye Vitamins and Dr Lange recommend starting off with four Fortifeye Super Omega for the first week and then as long as you weigh less than 240 lbs staying on two per day continuously. Anyone over 250 lbs should use 2 – 4 Fortifeye Super Omega daily to help reduce the signs and symptoms of dry eye. Omega 3 fish oil is rapidly becoming the standard of care as the treatment of Dry eyes. Omega 3 helps reduce inflammation in the Meibomian glands and allows for a much healthier tear film. Omega 3 also helps to reduce surface inflammation on the cornea. Omega 3 for dry eye is one of the most important steps to becoming symptom free.

Two more nutritional steps that  work synergistically with tg form omega 3 fish oil at reducing  dry eye signs and symptoms are  the addition of 6 mg of astaxanthin and  drinking a non denatured whey protein concentrate from year round grass fed A2 cows.   Astaxanthin is the more powerful than lutein or zeaxanthin at quenching  free radicals and is also one of the most powerful natural anti inflammatory nutrients.   Astaxanthin crosses the blood retinal barrier and actually makes it to the  eye.  Astaxanthin  when combined with  omega 3  increases its absorption and benefits.  Astaxanthin also improves  ciliary muscle functioning ability and thus improves amplitude of accommodation reducing eye fatigue from prolong near point tasks.   Fortifeye Focus is a combination of Lutein, Zeaxanthin and 6 mg of astaxanthin.  There is now ample evidence that the blue violet light from the sun and from man made light and  digital apps is harmful to the eye !  The combination of these 3 carotenoids also acts as an internal and external   uv / blue violet light filtering mechanism .  Dr Lange has seen many dry eye patients gain further benefit with the addition of one Fortifeye Focus gel cap per day.Fortifeye Focus with 6 mg astaxanthin and 6 mg lutein and 400 mcg zeaxanthin

The addition of a non denatured year round grass fed whey protein concentrate from A2 cows milk is a great way to jump start the immune system.  One of the largest nutritional deficiencies found in dry eye and macular degeneration patients  found through intracellular blood analysis at The Lange Eye Institute was Glutathione.  The best way to eliminate Glutathione deficiencies is by drinking a good  non denatured whey protein concentrate.  This type of whey protein concentrate is very high in CLA, lactoferrin and covalent bonded cysteine.  These three nutrients are often times lacking in the typical American diet.  Many patients experience  more energy, more stamina, better muscle tone and reduced dry eye symptoms after a few months of supplementing with this type of protein.  learn more about the science of  a protein called Fortifeye Super Protein at  www.newzealandwheyproteinconcentrate.com
