USA Basketball Junior Olympics gold medalist and former Stanford University and FIBA/WNBA basketball player Carolyn Moos does not accept ignorance as an excuse for poor health. Speaking recently with 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 produced by Rose Hong, founder and director of Global Dragon TV in Washington, D.C., Moos discussed her thriving health awareness and education practice, which benefits thousands around the world.
Kleyne, inventor of the Health Olympics, is always touting the need for improved education. “I’ve been in water evaporation research every day for the last thirty-five years,” observed Kleyne, “and I’m fascinated by the lack of good health education not only in the U.S. but all over the world. It’s an attitude about health that lacks common sense! Physicians and patients need to lace up their sneakers and get more proactive about their health, especially where body water evaporation is concerned.” Kleyne is focused on helping other become more proactive about their health with common sense education. “We forget what this life is all about,” says Kleyne. “The gift is living on this planet. Life is water. Life is living with the rhythm of earth and the solar system and breathing earth’s precious watery atmosphere. What is climate change? It’s sand changing the atmosphere.”
After graduating from Stanford University, Moos played international professional basketball, first in France, then with Miami of the WNBA. “I don’t believe in the word discipline, says Moos, anticipating surprising listeners. “There is a difference between discipline and desire,” says Moos. Moos explains that “if you feel like you’re being disciplined or disciplining yourself, that never works. I believe in finding the passion, the desire. The work ethic will follow.”
In her current practice, Moos demonstrates that she is “a big fan of teaching people, not just doing things for them.” Moos teaches yoga, nutrition and weight room cardiovascular work to people of all ages, children (teaching basketball skills) and pregnant women. Moos also provides an example of her priorities. “The number one thing for nutrition,” says Moos, “is to get a strategic macronutrient profile work-up. This measures the ratios of proteins, carbohydrates and fat in a diet.” Moos, who teaches in person and via Skype, explains that “protein contains amino acids that facilitate muscle repair, carbs give you glucose for brain power and good fats are important for the health of organs, hair and nails. I also love to teach people how to utilize oxygen in the most efficient way.”
Moos also shared her daily fitness mantra, which includes an emphasis on drinking water: hydration, nutrition, no alcohol or drugs, eight hours of sleep, breath work, early to bed, early to rise. “Have a water bottle with you at all times,” says Moos, who recalls when teaching middle school fifty percent of her students were dehydrated. “I drink water all day long. Water is the only liquid I put in my body.”
Kleyne, who can remember the beginning popularity of the water bottle, encouraged learning to breathe through the study of Qigong and Tai Chi. Kleyne honors Moos’s supportive parents who gave their daughter freedom to choose and to ask good questions. Kleyne encourages parents of all ages to get on the ball and become better educated about health, then teach those practices to children.
