Sharon Kleyne Says Eye Strain & Winter Dry Eye Causes Stress

Water advocate Kleyne Says Drinking Water & Resting Eyes Works

Sharon Kleyne, host of The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health radio program teaches people that eye strain and dry eye disease symptoms causes stress and anxiety, and can lead to even more serious vision problems. For example, according to Kleyne, too much stress can cause the tear film in the eyes to lose water via evaporation and become dehydrated.

Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, says that the situation has never been so bad because of so many people spending hours and hours a day watching television, playing video games and working on computers. “You literally see people everywhere with red, swollen and bleary eyes,” says Kleyne. “You can see the stress and anxiety literally etched on their faces,” Kleyne says, “and that can’t be good for anybody.”:

Sharon Kleyne and her research center specializing in evaporation of body water and earth’s water vapor, developed and patented its signature product, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®. Consisting of Trade Secret tissue culture grade fresh water with no additives and applied to the eyes as a fine mist from a hand-held, portable personal humidifier, the product painlessly and instantly soothes the eye and eye lens, which is naturally 99% water.

The eye/stress connection, according to Sharon Kleyne, has to do with the fact that the eyes are very close to the brain and the two are “hard-wired” together. Any trauma to the brain will affect the eyes and vice-versa. Many emotions affect the eyes, including sadness, joy, depression and stress. Kleyne’s research has discovered that prisoners and people who are emotionally unstable tend to have more vision problems than those who are naturally calm and collected.

Dry eye complaints tend to be worse in winter because the atmosphere cannot hold as much airborne water vapor at colder temperatures, which causes water in the eyes’ tear film to evaporate at a faster rate. Indoor air also tends to have lower water vapor content. The loss of tear film moisture to evaporation triggers numerous hormonal responses in the eyes, including an inflammatory reaction and a threat alert.

To avoid these stress and irritation issues, Sharon Kleyne suggests limiting television viewing to no more than two hours a day. Kleyne also suggests cutting back on computer work and working in conditions that offer good lighting. Taking care of yourself emotionally, Kleyne emphasizes, is always good advice for staying healthy and is at least as important as taking care of yourself physically and nutritionally.

To avoid dry eyes, eye strain and associated stress, Kleyne also recommends drinking at least eight to ten full glasses of water each day, in addition to all other fluid intake: And if you begin to feel stressed, or your eyes feel uncomfortable, a soothing, all-natural, pH balanced fresh water mist such as Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® will quickly supplement the tear film’s water content, alleviate tear film dehydration and dry eye complaints. It will also relieve one major cause of stress in our highly visual world.

Sharon Kleyne, Water & The Impossible Burger

Water Life Science® Leader Sharon Kleyne Likes Plant-Based Burger. Water Advocate Sharon Kleyne Approves Impossible Burger.

Sharon Kleyne, water vapor evaporation expert and Water Life Science® advocate, works hard every day to educate people around the world about the perils of water vapor loss and the need to supplement one’s eyes and skin several times a day with Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® and Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water®. “They’re still the only Trade Secret tissue culture grade water products. Without additives, to treat over-evaporation and dry eye disease on the planet,” said Kleyne. Kleyne, host of The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health radio program, is a tireless advocate of water research and education; she is also a staunch supporter of healthy practices and habits, including diet.

Like most leaders in holistic health and advanced research, Sharon Kleyne encourages appropriate diets that include lots of vegetables, fruit and water. Nuts, whole grains and some grass-fed beef (occasionally) are also encouraged. But if you want to ‘go vegetarian’ yet you like meat, Kleyne suggests that you try one intriguing alternative that is rapidly catching on.

After years of research and development, Impossible Foods, a four-year-old company in Redwood City, California, is launching its plant-based burger—and early reviews are amazing. Impossible Foods principle scientist Rachel Fraser explained the company’s thinking: “We wanted to look at what is meat and look at it in a way that no one has looked at it before and break it down into all the molecular components that make up meat and try to understand what makes meat meat.”

“It looks like they’ve done a good job,” says Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®. “The company hired chemists, engineers, molecular biologists and a director of protein discovery to work on this product.” The result looks like beef, and even more to the point, it tastes like beef. It tastes a lot like beef. In fact, if you didn’t know the difference, you might not be able to distinguish between a beef burger and this plant-based substitute. It’s healthy, too. The Impossible Burger provides all of your essential amino acids and B vitamins, as well as about six grams of protein.

The burger itself consists of elements that have always been used to make vegan ‘meat’ products—soy, wheat protein, water and some salt—with one very important addition: heme. Heme is a prolific substance in animal muscle tissue. It carries oxygen to our blood, and it makes the meat red. Meat can also thank heme for its tangy, bloody taste that carnivores around the world love. Now, Impossible Foods researchers have discovered that heme can be found in another source—the roots of soybeans. But rather than impact the landscape by harvesting lots of soybeans, scientists at Impossible Foods succeeded in taking the genetic sequences that make up heme in soy plants, then reproducing it, molecule by molecule, in the lab.

“But what may be the best news of all,” says Sharon Kleyne, “is the fact that an Impossible Burger uses three-quarters less water to make than a cow burger, thus saving precious water resources. So,” Kleyne continues, “if you want to cut down on or eliminate your meat intake while still enjoying the taste of a burger, give these new burgers a try.” Kleyne adds that everyone should, of course, still drink 8 to 10 glasses of water each day, and drink a whole glass (no sipping!) at a time.

Sharon Kleyne Says Cataracts Challenge Healthy Vision

Cataracts: the #1 cause of blindness. Sharon Kleyne Warns That Cataracts and Aging Can Go Hand in Hand.

“Do you know,” says water advocate Sharon Kleyne, “that the number of people suffering from visual impairment exceeds the total population of the United States? That’s right, the total population!” The World Health Organization released figures not long ago documenting that 285 million people (more than the entire population of the United States!) are visually impaired. Almost 40 million are blind. “Yet,” says Kleyne, ”80 percent of visual impairments can be prevented or cured.”

“Of course,” says Sharon Kleyne, “the quickest way to cure your visual ailments is to educate yourself about your eyes and eye care.” Sharon Kleyne, Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Center founder, visionary creator of Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® and host of The Sharon Kleyne Hour Radio Talk Show –, considers the daunting global statistics above and urges everyone to have their eyes examined for cataracts. She also encourages people everywhere to educate themselves about this particular serious threat to vision.

Cataracts occur, especially in people over the age of 40, when protein in the eye’s natural lens (between the iris and the pupil) clumps together and creates a cloudy condition. Not only is it the main cause of blindness in the world, according to Prevent Blindness America (PBA), there are more global cases of cataracts than there are of diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and macular degeneration combined. After age 40, cataracts affect more than 22 million Americans each year, and PBA projects that by 2020—just a little more than three years from now—more than 30 million Americans will suffer from cataracts. Cataract symptoms may include blurred vision—as if you were looking through a cloudy glass—dull colors, glaring headlights when you drive at night, or sunlight that seems so bright it hurts.

Yes, in practical terms, cataracts can be dangerous to others, too. Imagine the head-on collisions and side-swiping savagery awaiting the cataract-afflicted who have not given up driving. Think of the man last year who plowed into a school bus, or the one that knocked a child off his bicycle and into a ditch. These were cataract-related accidents, and more happen every day.

The three known types of cataracts include: subcapsular cataract, which occurs at the back of the lens (people with diabetes and people taking large doses of steroids have the greatest risk), nuclear cataract, which takes shape deep in the lens’s nucleus and is most often associated with aging and cortical cataract, which occurs in the lens cortex and is identified by white opacities in the shape of wedges that seem to begin in the periphery of the lens and work inward to the center in a spoke-like design.

Sharon Kleyne, for decades a leading voice in eye and skin care using tissue culture grade water to supplement the eyes and skin’s water vapor loss through evaporation, encourages every person on earth to take responsibility for her own eye care before it is too late. “Eyes and skin are constantly assaulted,” Kleyne says, “by dehydration and depletion of earth’s water vapor due to pollution and climate change. Dry Eye Syndrome, allergies and respiratory conditions lead directly to cataracts and blindness.”

A unique, preventative safeguard against cataracts can be found in Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®’s Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® and its personal hand-held humidifying device emitting a pure, pH balanced, 100% water mist for rehydrating eyes. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is endorsed by more than 22,000 ophthalmologists and optometrists nationwide and was successfully test-marketed in more than 70,000 outlets.

The new research at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® suggests that a future in which the affliction of cataracts is greatly diminished is on the horizon, “but it will take more research and better education to get us there,” says Kleyne. Preventative measures such as regularly using Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® can make all the difference.

“You only have two eyes,” Sharon Kleyne reminds us, “and they are almost completely made of water. If you want to see clearly, and who doesn’t, you must be hydrated! Drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water every day, do breathing exercises and mist your eyes with our pure, culture grade Trade Secret fresh water.”

Sharon Kleyne Explores Water for Seniors

Sharon Kleyne Says Older People Need To Recharge Their Batteries with Water.

Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® and radio host of the syndicated Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health radio program on Voice of America, knows that as the body ages, it is more susceptible than ever to loss of water due to over-evaporation.

While pursuing her research in this important area, Sharon Kleyne has opened up a dialogue with Peggy Kinst, a wellness specialist for forty years and a trainer for Ageless Grace (, to talk about healthier lifestyles and some things that seniors can do to achieve them.

Formerly a Professor of Literature at Northwestern University, Kinst slowly gravitated to her career in health care after receiving a grim diagnosis. She was told that she was suffering from a serious intestinal disease, and her prospects were not good. Refusing to accept this grim diagnosis, Kinst took charge of her condition and her health. She began practicing yoga, Nia and Jazzercise. She discovered that music encouraged states of cognition and joy, and she began refining the way she ate, what she ate and how she relaxed. Along the way, she became a certified teacher of free movement dance, a Bio-composition specialist and a Myers-Briggs counselor. Today, at Ageless Grace, Kinst teaches twenty-one movement tools for the twenty-one factors of aging that everyone experiences. Ageless Grace includes 1,600 educators working in seventeen countries and throughout the United States.

Sharon Kleyne describes the challenge older people face with over-evaporation. “Every living thing is like a battery,” Kleyne says. “When the battery loses water, it doesn’t work/ One has to keep recharging the battery. In the same way,” she continues, humans—especially aging humans—must recycle water vapor to complete the connection and receive the benefits of the healthy charge.”

Sharon Kleyne and Kinst are in agreement about the wavy circle of water vapor that surrounds the planet, and the fact that the moment one leaves the watery womb of the mother, one begins to dehydrate. Especially vulnerable are the eyes, which are 99% water. Our eyes are constantly drying out, and until recently, most treated this irritation with chemically-based eye drops and saline solutions that offered only temporary relief and actually contributed to ongoing evaporation. Kinst, is delighted to hear about and endorse Kleyne’s Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, the only tissue culture grade water applied by a personal hand-held humidifying device emitting a pure, pH balanced, 100% water mist for dry eyes. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is endorsed by more than 22,000 ophthalmologists and optometrists nationwide.

Kinst says she looks forward to sharing this and other life-enhancing products from Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® with her clients and fellow trainers. “Older people are always excited to learn that they can change their bodies and their brains,” she said. “They’re like sponges. Every time one tackles a new activity or considers a new idea, the brain begins to build new neural pathways, and this activity staves off dementia, Alzheimer’s and other manifestations of aging.”

“Speaking of sponges,” Sharon Kleyne adds, “I’m reminded that we’re also like them. Dunk a sponge in a bucket of water, then leave it on a table. What happens? The sponge dries out, just like we do when we fail to supplement our evaporating water vapor. This also makes me think of my work with children,” Kleyne says. “Why is it we all feel more relaxed when we stand upright and move our arms away from our bodies? The movement builds collagen and expels the stress hormone Cortisol. Yet, to receive the ultimate benefit of this and other activities, we must be hydrated.”

Sharon Kleyne and Kinst agree that supplementing the body’s water vapor loss due to evaporation is absolutely essential to living longer and improving one’s quality of life. They remind us to drink at least eight-to-ten glasses of water each day, and to protect and replenish the eyes on a daily basis with Nature’s Tears Eye Mist. There is no substitute for the water that supports our lives.

Sharon Kleyne Knows Intellectual Property

Sharon Kleyne Encourages Entrepreneurs To Treasure Their IP. Sharon Kleyne Wants Heightened IP Awareness.

Author Russ Krajec, in an article in IP Watch Dog, said that “patents encapsulate the hopes and dreams of a company.” Patents, of course, represent a significant part of any company’s intellectual property, so Sharon Kleyne, the international Water Life Science® leader whose advanced water research and business acumen shaped and inspired a new water lifestyle, could agree more with Krajec.

Sharon Kleyne wants entrepreneurs to wake up to the treasure trove of assets literally hiding right under their noses and begin to focus on creating, developing and marketing intellectual property. “The more savvy the business world becomes,” said Kleyne, “about IP and its immense value, the more companies will need to think about engaging a staff IP Manager. It’s the wave of the future,” Kleyne continued, “and the future is now!”

Sharon Kleyne also agrees with longtime colleague Andrew Sherman, a sometimes guest on The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health radio program and the author of 2011’s influential Harvesting Intangible Assets: Uncover Hidden Revenue in Your Company’s Intellectual Property. Sherman argues that business entrepreneurs must learn to hate waste. They must wake up to the immense, often untapped, resources hidden in a company’s intellectual property (also known as intangible assets). Sherman, who works as a Partner in the Washington, D.C. office of Jones Day and is an international authority on the legal and strategic aspects of business growth, encourages entrepreneurs and others in business to mimic the principles of recycling and agrarianism to better leverage the value of intellectual property that already exists in communities and companies.

Since its inception, one company that has always excelled in this strategy is, of course, Sharon Kleyne’s own Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, the first company to have achieved a first-ever global patent on a micron size of water to supplement the eyes and skin. Kleyne’s brother and advisor, the late Ronald Cowin (MBA, Wharton School of Business), wrote the company’s first business plan and always stressed the importance of connecting the art of doing business with collecting intellectual property. “The company has always vigorously developed and protected its IP,” Kleyne said. “Our IP is our value and our future, which includes licensing agreements and partnerships around the world, collaborative advanced water research, and, in time, Water Life Science® hospitals that will specialize only on evaporation studies and supplementing earth’s and the body’s water vapor. Our international IP in the power of water is immensely valuable.”

Sherman referred to the Wisconsin state senator who called together several cheese makers in his state and convinced them to keep, collect and sell its excess cheese curds to the state. Why? The state had discovered that the cheese curds, when spread on icy roads, greatly improved tire traction and safety. Sherman cited other examples of entrepreneurs developing IP. He made the point that Ray Kroc did not invent the cheeseburger. He didn’t plant the seed that was McDonald’s; yet, he recognized its potential and brought that to a larger marketplace. “Fred Smith at Fed Ex is another entrepreneur who saw potential and revolutionized the package delivery industry,” Sherman said. Sherman pointed out that these successful entrepreneurs took something that already existed and made it better. “And that is doing business,” Kleyne said, “with IP on the front burner instead of the back burner.”

Sharon Kleyne, for decades a tireless advocate for water research and education, said that intellectual property management is her top priority as a businesswoman. “You can’t just focus on sales,” Kleyne said, “because if you do, you won’t be able to rely on your IP to pull you through a down period.” Sherman referred to this awareness as ‘knowing your company’s donut hole. “We’re never going back to being an agrarian or industrial society,” Sherman said, “yet the principles of farming still apply. An entrepreneur needs to be on the lookout for new seeds. An entrepreneur must plant, protect and harvest those seeds (or take over someone else’s crop), then get that harvest to market.”

“I agree,” said Sharon Kleyne. “We need to approach business, and creating and protecting IP, with a sense of agrarian urgency.”

Sharon Kleyne & Colleagues Celebrate Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®

Water Advocate Sharon Kleyne Honor’s Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®’s Second Decade. Sharon Kleyne & Colleagues Cheer Birthday of Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®.

Sharon Kleyne, the world’s Water Life Science® leader and host of The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health radio program, recently joined colleagues in celebrating the second decade of beginning of the second decade of Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®. Sharon Kleyne and her colleagues at the company she founded, Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®’, have witness their signature product help more than a hundred million Americans and go global in its reach. “I remember when we unveiled this new paradigm in eye care,” said Kleyne, ”bringing relief to over 59 million Americans suffering from Dry Eye Syndrome.” The product of a decade of research on the effects of its tissue-culture grade water on the eye and skin, the company broke the mold in traditional eye drops when it released Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, a revolutionary micron mist applied from a personal, hand-held portable humidifier that was painless and fun to use. “Saline solutions burn and blur the eyes,” Kleyne said. “Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® doesn’t.”

“We’re the first company in the world to concentrate only on water research and the effects of evaporation of the earth’s and the body’s water mist,” said Kleyne.
Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® soothingly alleviates the discomfort and inconvenience of traditional eye drops by leaving the normal tear film in place, with all its necessary components that fight infection and resist evaporation. According to Sharon Kleyne, traditional eye drops often contain up to ten times the total tear film volume that may wash away delicate tear film structure.

With Dry Eye Syndrome affecting so many Americans, research into tear film has become top priority. Research indicates sustained moisture loss could result in permanent visual impairments. “The functions of tear film have not changed. What has evolved is our understanding of the effects of poor tear film on vision,” said William Mathers MD, a professor and researcher at Oregon Health Sciences University’s Casey Eye Institute.

Boise State University Professor and Researcher, Julia Oxford, Ph.D., recalled that “Sharon (Kleyne) founded Bio-Logic Aqua® Research to study and develop methods to deliver water vapor and prevent human dehydration. Sharon is concerned about all people and understands that there is currently a fresh water crisis on a global scale. Sharon believes that all people have a right to a safe and clean water source.” Oxford added that “Periodic testing of Biologic Aqua (tissue culture grade water) is conducted to guarantee that the water is of a specific quality and characteristic.

The secret ingredient to Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is tissue culture grade water, a high-grade of water tested for its ability to support cell growth and maintenance in the laboratory. This grade of water originates in deep underground springs below Oregon’s Siskiyou Mountains. A native of Grants Pass, Oregon, Kleyne discovered the springs in 1978.

This new paradigm in eye care has gained the endorsement of professional journals and physicians worldwide. “Artificial tear drops use a voluminous drop whereas the mist puts one micro liter into the tear film, making it a very gentle process,” said Mathers.

Sharon Kleyne, everyone associated with the product, and of course the millions who seek relief in its use look forward to a dynamic second decade for Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®.

Water Health Advocates Sharon Kleyne & Dr. Effie Chow Share Water and Health Wisdom

Sharon Kleyne, the world’s Water Life Science® leader and Dr. Effie Chow, internationally celebrated energy healer and humanitarian, have been close friends and science allies for many years. Recently, the two women met to discuss Dr. Chow’s long career and the progress of global health and water research. Whenever the colleagues meet, their conversation is spirited; the recent exchange was no exception as they discussed their latest research in water, diet, exercise, Qigong and traditional Chinese medicine, especially when integrated with western medicine.

Sharon Kleyne, host of The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health radio program, noted that Dr. Chow wears many hats. She is a Qigong Grandmaster, energy healer, acupuncturist, humanitarian, international speaker, Futurist and Visionary. Noting that Chow was knighted in 2008, Kleyne praised Dr. Chow’s long history as a major alternative healer around the world.

With equal graciousness, Dr. Chow looked back on their frequent co-creative, collaborative efforts. “Your interest in water,” said Effie Chow to Sharon Kleyne, “is mine as well. Moisture (water) is the primary essence in our lives. Without water, we die.”

“Our atmosphere is drying up,” Sharon Kleyne added. “We’re seeing people dehydrated because they aren’t drinking enough water or misting to replenish the rapidly evaporating water vapor of their bodies.”

Asked by Sharon Kleyne how she became inspired to integrate traditional Chinese and western medicine. Dr. Chow referred to a time shortly before her birth. “I was a rebel from the very beginning, even in my mother’s womb,” Chow said. “My parents were living in Canada, but I refused to be born there. I had to be born in China.” Dr. Chow’s family was steeped in ancient Chinese medicine, and her father, whom she adored, encouraged her studies. When her father became ill and died, Chow felt that medicine at the time abandoned him. “Fifteen years later,” she said, “he might very well have lived.” Thus inspired, Chow vowed to master the ancient healing arts, and that led her to her mastery of Qigong.

When asked, as she often is, to define the practice of Qigong, Dr. Chow explained that Qigong itself is the basis for all Chinese medicine. “Qigong,” Chow said, “is a non-confrontational series of energy-breath exercises. Qigong teaches you to tune in and listen to the energy of your body. It teaches you to ‘feel’ your energy system, your lymph system, your nervous system. Qigong teaches that you are not just a kidney. Every cell is connected. That is why you and I are connected to every other living being on earth, and to the wider universe as well.”

Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, hopes everyone learns that the water vapor keeps you alive. Kleyne said that people should do all they can to slow down their body’s water evaporation, and Chow and Kleyne agreed that means drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water each day and learning to breathe properly. “85% of the people in the world don’t know how to breathe,” said Dr. Chow, who shared an effective breathing exercise for those who breathe from their shoulders up. “You must breathe from your diaphragm,” said Chow, “not from your neck and shoulders.”

“And one must also slow down the evaporation process,” said Sharon Kleyne. “Live longer. Be healthier,” Kleyne added. “Many people don’t understand this key point: water has energy, even the water in their bodies; as one ages, the body’s water vapor evaporates much more quickly.”

“Also,” said Chow, it is wise to integrate into one’s life a lifelong practice, such as I have done with Qigong,” Chow described how she had ‘died’ three times in 2015 during medical procedures, but had come back thanks to her deep Qigong practice.

“That’s a wonderful example of taking responsibility for your own personal health,” said Sharon Kleyne.
