Water and Proper Breathing Saved My Life Says KV Kumar. Sharon Kleyne & KV. Kumar and Kleyne Discuss Volunteerism, Health & Water on Talk Radio.
KV. Kumar had just received an award for “Unheralded Advocacy” in Dallas. He flew to Atlanta and a driver picked him up at the airport to take him to his hotel. It was a great day.
It was a great day until a pickup truck rammed into Kumar’s car. Kumar doesn’t remember much after that. He was rushed to a hospital where doctors said he was brain-dead. Yet, Kumar told Sharon Kleyne, host of the internationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Water Life Science®/Nature’s Pharma®, The Power of Water® & Your Health sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® on VoiceAmerica and World Talk Radio, he miraculously survived. But “doctors told me I had been brain dead and that I would not be able to find gainful employment,” said Kumar. They appeared to be correct. “Before the accident,” said Kumar, “I had an IQ of 175; afterwards my IQ was measured at 50.”
Kumar was determined to fight his way back to normalcy. This man has been a fighter all his life. He emigrated to the U.S. from India in 1968 with all of 8 dollars in his pocket. 47 years later, Kumar was the recipient of the 2015 Ellis Island Medal of Honor. He is featured in Notable Asian Americans and is a subject of Born In Asia: Stories of Celebrated Asian Americans, a documentary produced by Global Dragon TV.
Before success and accolades came his way, however, Kumar spent a decade healing his brain and spirit. Kleyne, for 30 years an international new water technology researcher and expert on evaporation , asked Kumar about the role that water and proper breathing played in his recovery.
My grandfather wrote a book in 1905 about water,” Kumar revealed. “I have always kept a copy of that book with me. That and my mother’s encouragement to be proactive about my recovery and health sustained me,” said Kumar. “Breathing clean air and drinking clean water are the most important things that one can do to be healthy,” Kumar added.
Kleyne and Kumar also discussed the fact that there is too little education about water, the evaporation process and their essential roles in health and health care. “We need to learn how earth is breathing and to hear what earth is whispering to us,” said Kleyne. Kumar agreed, adding “common sense is the most uncommon thing.”
Kumar not only fully recovered over time, he made (and continues to make) a positive impact in the lives of thousands of people. His personal struggle and story and his lobbying led to the enactment of the 1996 Traumatic Brain Injury Act of the U.S. Congress. Kumar’s unheralded advocacy benefits other victims of traumatic brain injury. He has reached out to the elderly as well. Once, he bought a car big enough to seat ten passengers. Kumar did this so that he could drive 10 elders around at a time. He took them shopping. He took them out so they could along the waterfront. He took them to collect their social security checks.
Kumar supports small businesses and entrepreneurs, and has served, in various capacities, every president since Ronald Reagan. Yet, he made a point of affirming that simple solutions such as following Sharon Kleyne’s five edicts for better health: drinking lots of pure water, breathing properly, moderate exercise, an appropriate personal diet and good sleep led to his complete recovery from traumatic brain injury. He believes that these Nature’s Pharma® edicts can work for anyone,
