Sharon Kleyne Encourages Proactive Self-care During Flu Season. Water Life Science® Advocate Sharon Kleyne Teaches Flu Relief.
Sharon Kleyne, America’s leading water educator, researcher and advocate and the host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on Voice of America, urges everyone to be proactive as we enter the heart of the annual flu season.
Everyone is familiar with “flu eyes,” the itching, burning, watering, redness and eye fatigue that often accompanies colds and influenza, especially in winter. According to Kleyne, eyes are a major port of entry for cold and flu viruses and bacteria, and maintaining healthy eyes can help avoid escalating illness. Kleyne believes that treating eye symptoms during colds or flu is as important as treating fever or nausea.
Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, has earned an international reputation as the global expert on dehydration of the eyes and skin due to excessive evaporation of the body’s water vapor. “From the moment we leave our mother’s water-womb and are born,” Kleyne said, “we begin a process of evaporation that continues until death. In order to sustain excellent health,” she went on, “one must supplement eyes and skin on a daily basis to replenish the evaporating water vapor. Of course, the purer the water is, the better it will be for the person supplementing skin and eyes with it.” Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, the research center’s global signature product, provides a pure fresh water mist; applied with a personal, portable, hand held humidifying device,; to instantly soothe flu eye complaints.
According to Sharon Kleyne, the water inside our body, eyes and skin is the first line of defense against disease invasion. That’s why doctors tell sick people to “drink plenty of water.” When a person becomes ill, their body, eyes and skin lose water and becomes dehydrated. Dehydration symptoms frequently begin at common disease entry points such as eyes and mouth. It is important to note, says Kleyne, that common eye complaints during flu, such as itching, burning, redness and watery eyes, are identical to the most common complaints in the disease called “dry eye disease.” That’s because flu eye is, essentially, dry eye.
Watery eyes, Sharon Kleyne explained, are a frequent dry eye symptom. They occur, in a dry eye patient, as a result of “reflex tearing” as the eyes’ attempt to compensate for the loss of water content in the basal tear film.
When the flu strikes, Sharon Kleyne notes, it is especially important to keep the eyes’ protective tear film well hydrated and functioning properly. The irony is that winter may be the most challenging time of year to maintain a healthy tear film because more time is spent indoors during winter, where the air is dryer and contains more bacteria.
Sharon Kleyne’s suggestions for avoiding ‘flu eye” discomfort:
1. Avoid rubbing the eyes or putting fingers in mouth
2. Wash hands frequently
3. Drink 8 to 10 full glasses of pure water each day, in addition to all other fluid intake.
4. Open windows occasionally to let in fresh, humid air, free of re-circulated bacteria-laden skin particles.
5. In home or office, arrange for 40% to 50% relative humidity* at 65 to 70 degrees.
6. Treat yourself to frequent long, soothing baths and/or showers.
7. Make a ritual of daily facial cleansing. Using a washcloth and very mild, liquid soap, spend several minutes repeatedly applying hot water compresses to the eyes and face.
Sharon Kleyne also recommends, for convenient and all-natural relief of flu eye symptoms, a soothing, all-natural, pH balanced fresh water mist such as Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®. The application will conveniently supplement the tear film’s diminished water content, alleviate tear film dehydration and relieve dry eye and flu eye complaints.
“I try to educate people around the world every day about the dangers of flu and the growing global water crisis,” said Sharon Kleyne “and the health dangers associated with dehydration due to excess evaporation of the earth’s water vapor. In doing so,” Kleyne said, “we learn what we need to know to create a new, healthy Water Life Science® lifestyle.” Kleyne encouraged readers, listeners and other interested parties to visit http://www.biologicaqua.com for more information about this new water technology and water lifestyle.
