Sharon Kleyne Stands By 8-to-12 Glasses Of Water A Day

Water Life Science® Creator Kleyne Says Drinking Minimum of 8 Glasses of Water a Day Is Essential to Good Health. Sharon Kleyne Encourages Daily Consumption of Fresh Pure Water.

When you were born, you left your mother’s watery womb and began a natural process of evaporation that lasts until you die. For many years Sharon Kleyne, international Water Life Science® creator and the founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, has taught people about dehydration and excessive evaporation. As you evaporate, Kleyne wants you to know that you must supplement your body water vapor with pure, fresh water.

It has long been the standard recommendation to drink “eight glasses of water a day”, but is this outdated today? Some health journalists say yes, it is. But water advocate Kleyne believes that drinking eight glasses of water a day is not a myth. In an age of climate change, air pollution and widespread drought, Kleyne believes that drinking a minimum of eight glasses of fresh water every day is more important than ever.

Kleyne, host of the nationally syndicated The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, believes that any health recommendation that downplays the importance of adequate daily fresh water intake puts the public at risk. Eight glasses a day at eight ounces per glass, or 64 ounces, is the minimum amount for most adults. Some doctors recommend drinking half one’s body weight in ounces per day. By this standard, a 180-pound person should consume 90 ounces.

Kleyne applies the “half your body weight rule” only to people weighing under 128 pounds, including children (half of 128 in ounces is 64). For everyone else, she recommends a minimum of eight glasses – preferably 10 to 12 – and even more if you have a fever, just finished strenuous exercise, live in a dry or polluted area, work outdoors, take dehydrating medication (that gives you dry mouth), or experience dehydration symptoms such as dry mouth, skin or eyes, fatigue or thirst.

If you are thirsty, Kleyne insists, pay attention. Thirst is a good indicator that your body needs water. However, be aware of the fact that as we age, the thirst reflex diminishes so the absence of thirst does not necessarily mean the body does not need water.

Yet another controversy is whether coffee, tea, juice, soft drinks, or water-rich foods such as apples, watermelons and celery count towards your daily eight glasses. According to the US government, they do. According to the British government, they do not. However, the British acknowledge fruit and unsweetened juice as secondary water sources. To absorb and utilize this secondary water, Kleyne explains, the body must first turn it into pure water. Yet, by drinking fresh, pure water in the first place, water is absorbed more easily. Caffeinated, heavily sugared and alcoholic drinks should be avoided because they are dehydrating.

According to Kleyne, all humans are at least slightly dehydrated or will soon be and would benefit from additional water. Because water is essential to every organ, structure and cell in the body, including the immune system, the single most important step towards good health is to pay attention to hydration and consume a minimum of eight-to-twelve glasses of pure, fresh water a day.
