Welcome back to another wonderful author interview session. I am honored to host Dr. Caruso, author of Beyond Carrots. I'm particularly excited as I am a pharmacist by trade, so it's always amazing to find another health care provider who makes time to write. Let's see what Beyond Carrots is all about!

Welcome, Dr. Caruso...

JE: Thank you for your time! Let's start here--although I did look up Beyond Carrots, could you please let our readers know what this book is all about? BC: In Beyond Carrots, I tell the story of how I reversed my eye disease using lifestyle and nutrition. Believe it or not, even the eye doctor runs the risk of eye disease. In this book, I discuss some of the most common eye diseases and how they can be impacted by food and lifestyle. The book ends with a 10 step Beyond Carrots Plan for reversing eye disease. JE: Who is the primary audience for your novel? BC: The primary audience for my book is the layperson. Anyone who wants to protect their eyes from damaging eye disease should read this book. In fact, the Beyond Carrots Plan can even improve the night vision overall clarity of vision in the person who does not have eye disease. Pretty much everyone who puts the Beyond Carrots Plan into action will see improvement in some aspect of their vision and life. JE: What was it like writing about your own personal experience? What about it was easy, and what about it was challenging? BC: I actually shed tears at times as I wrote about my own personal experience. Reliving the fear of loss of vision through my writing was difficult to say the least. I never truly understood the emotions that go into vision loss until I faced them firsthand. JE: I can only imagine! I think we all take our vision for granted... Now, how long did it take to write and publish this book? BC: It took me almost two years to write the book and nine months to get Beyond Carrots published. ​JE: That's a labor of love, right there! What do you hope your readers will walk away with after reading your book? BC: My main goal is to drive home the fact that every thing you do to your body or put in your body affects your eyes. JE: In your opinion, what is a major misconception about eye health that you see in most patients? BC: A major misconception about eye health is that you cannot change the fate of your eye health. Many people do not understand the impact of what you do and what you eat on your eyes. You have the power to change your eye health destiny. JE: Wow! That's great to hear, and I hope a lot of people feel empowered by this! As a medical professional myself, many people are surprised I also write books. How did you find the time to write? What drove you to put your experience and wisdom in this medium? BC: When I found the powerful effects that diet and lifestyle had on my eyes, I made it my mission to get the highest level of certification possible with a Fellowship in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine and educate as many people as possible. If I am able to help just one person prevent blindness, my prayers will be answered. JE: Very inspiring. Thank you for sharing. Do you have any plans for future books? JC: At the moment, I am working on creating an online program to supplement my book. The name of the online program is Beyond Carrots Masterclass. The program will dive into each step of the Beyond Carrots Plan with specific action steps. The estimated completion date of this course is November 15, 2022.

November 2022 is right around the corner, so I wish Dr. Caruso luck with her program and I thank her for her time today. If you are interested in reading her book, click on the button below to be directed to Amazon!

When the eye doctor is going blind, we really have a problem on our hands!

Believe it or not, this happened to me. I am an eye doctor who had perfect vision and a clean bill of health. Then, I was diagnosed with a potentially blinding eye disease at the age of thirty-five. I was given thirty days of sight when I took my vision's fate into my own hands.

I devised a plan to reverse my eye disease using nutrition and lifestyle changes. When I went to my eye specialist and found that my plan was successful, I knew that I wanted to become as informed as possible in the nutrition field. I become one of three optometrists in the nation with a Fellowship in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine and a Fellowship in Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine. Now I feel compelled to share my knowledge with as many people as possible to help others save their vision.

In Beyond Carrots, I tell my story and share the emotions that go along with a diagnosis of possible blindness. It is amazing how the body is truly connected to the eyes. What happens to the body directly impacts your vision. So, regardless of whether or not you are experiencing a potential eye disease, Beyond Carrots can help better your health!

The causes of some of the most common eye diseases are discussed. You will find out how to reverse those diseases through simple lifestyle changes and how certain foods can impact eye health. To top it all off, the Beyond Carrots Plan puts it all together with a step-by-step plan to reversing eye disease. By following this plan, your eyes will not be the only area of your life that will benefit. Upon the completion of your Beyond Carrots journey, you feel better, think clearer, and improve your vision. So, let's get started!
