Optimal Health Begins and Ends with Water
Sharon Kleyne, Water Life Science® advocate and host of The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Warming and Your Health radio show, asks people to pay attention to a simple truth. The older you get, the more water you need to stay healthy and alive.
“In our fast-paced lives, people easily forget many important things,” says Sharon Kleyne, “but this oversight can kill you.” Speaking with Hall of Fame UCLA All-American volleyball player, health and yoga professor, radio host and certified life coach Sharkie Zartman (www.sharkiezartman.com), Kleyne encourages couch potatoes and the more physically active to look into Zartman’s books and teaching programs.
Zartman, author of five books, including the recent Take on Aging as a Sport: The Athletic Approach to Aging, wants her students and clients to understand that “once you hit fifty, you’re already in the game whether you like it or not. So get off the bench,” says Sharkie, “put on your helmet and get in there!” Sharon Kleyne adds with enthusiastic agreement, “Turn your daily life into a sport, a discipline, a rigorous training.”
Sharon Kleyne also wants people young and old, in shape or out of shape, to understand that optimum health can only be achieved if they take personal responsibility for replenishing the body’s water vapor, which is essential to all life. It’s literally in the air we breathe, and it is in the body, too. “The lenses of our eyes are 99% water,” says Kleyne; “your brain is 80% to 85 % water; your lungs are 75% to 80% water; your heart, liver, kidneys, skin and muscles are 70% to 75% water; your blood is 50% water. Even your bones are 25% water. What does that make you? It makes you a walking sponge! And what happens to a sponge when it’s set aside without water for too long? It dries out; it gets rigid and useless.”
Sharon Kleyne and Zartman agree, too, on the perils of sugar consumption, pointing out that people drink the wrong things while thinking they’re replenishing essential body fluids. ”Instead, we’re drinking a lot of calories,” says Zartman. “We’re drinking a lot of chemicals. Sugar causes dehydration and inflammation.”
“Every person is a walking sponge.”
“Sugar causes over-evaporation and can lead to addiction,” adds Kleyne.
“People must also realize,” says Zartman, “that exercise is no longer optional. The body needs to move. I found that yoga saved my life, providing a regular, restorative ‘time-out’, which I need in my busy life.”
“Everyone needs to manage stress better,” Kleyne points out. “People need to learn how to relax while drinking lots of water, eating and sleeping properly, and breathing. Don’t forget to breathe!”
Of course, peak health begins and ends with water. Kleyne and Zartman concur that an important remedy for dry eye disease is Sharon Kleyne’s Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, the only personal hand-held humidifying device emitting a pure, pH balanced, 100% Trade Secret tissue culture grade water mist for dry 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. Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water® for dry skin and Bio-Med Wash® for athletic injuries are also one-of-a-kind solutions for water vapor evaporation.”
“There is no longevity without hydration,” says Sharon Kleyne, “and that means water, water, water.”
