Sharon Kleyne Fights Flu With Water

Water Advocate Sharon Kleyne Announces Water Program to Defeat Flu. Sharon Kleyne Shares Ways To Avoid Flu Or Get Over It Faster.

Water advocate Sharon Kleyne shares her ongoing commitment to educating the public about water and health on her globally syndicated The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water® radio show on Voice America and Apple iTunes. Recently, noting that we are in the midst of the annual flu season, Kleyne announced a program to help people avoid the flu or recover much more quickly from it.

Sharon Kleyne, the Founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, is internationally celebrated by scientists, researchers, physicians and universities for her research and discoveries of new water technology and promotion of a healthier, Water Life Science® lifestyle. She recommends that people visit the comprehensive health website of the Center for Disease Control (CDC). “It has everything you need to know about preventing and treating seasonal influenza,” said Kleyne (http://www.cdc.gov/flu/index/htm). “They stress the importance of hydration,” Kleyne continued, “and they urge the public to drink lots of water and avoid dehydration caused by evaporation of the body’s water vapor. Excessive evaporation can lead to death.”

In keeping with her philosophy that proactive water technology, research and health education are essential for improving global health, Sharon Kleyne has meticulously researched dehydration caused by evaporation, flu prevention and flu treatment. “Here is a recap of the CDC’s excellent advice,” she announced, “plus additional information on evaporation of the body’s water vapor based on extensive research at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®.”

“Flu” is short for “influenza,” the beginning of an Italian phrase meaning “influence of the stars.” The Italians originally attributed the disease to astrological alignment of the stars. In fact, flu is a virus that can be spread by sneezing, touching contaminated surfaces and eating contaminated foods. Because the influenza virus constantly mutates, flu immunization shots must be changed every year and cannot cover every possible flu strain. Also, flu strains in animals that had been harmless to humans can mutate and suddenly start making us sick, as in swine flu and bird flu.

Flu can be mild to severe and could cause death if a mutant strain is virulent enough (as in the 1918 flu pandemic, estimated to have killed 100 million people worldwide). Flu is especially dangerous to those in high risk categories such as children, people with lung (COPD or asthma) or heart problems, or the elderly. Flu can lead to secondary infections such as pneumonia and sinus or ear infections.

Flu symptoms (not all may be present):

  • Fever

  • Cough

  • Sore throat

  • Nasal congestion

  • Muscle ache

  • Headache

  • Fatigue

  • Nausea or vomiting

  • Diarrhea

Taking care of yourself

  • Stay home

  • Avoid close contact with others

  • DRINK PLENTY OF WATER to prevent dehydration (See “regarding water,” below).

  • Treat fever, cough or nausea with over-the-counter medications.

  • See a doctor if you are in a high risk category or your symptoms become worrisome.

The CDC cautions that “dehydration is very serious” and can cause death. They offer the following suggestions to prevent or reverse fluid loss.

  • Drink plenty of water.

  • Avoid drinks containing alcohol or caffeine.

  • Older adults or people with kidney problems should check with their doctor about how much water to drink.

  • It is OK to breast-feed if you are dehydrated or ill. It will not affect your baby.

Dehydration symptoms.

  • Reduced tear production

  • Dry mouth

  • Rapid pulse

  • Difficulty keeping food or fluids down

  • Diarrhea

  • Low energy

Treating a fever can also help reduce dehydration.

  • Again, drink plenty of water.

  • Damp compresses on forehead.

  • Warm bath

  • Fever-reducing medication

  • Room humidifier

Regarding water:

Bio-Logic Aqua Research recommends at least eight-to-ten glasses (eight ounces per glass) of pure fresh water per day. Drink twelve glasses if you are ill, have dehydration symptoms, following heavy exercise or if it’s very hot out. Sharon Kleyne also recommends that one drink glasses of water all at once rather than sipping them.
