Longevity & Water Go Hand in Hand Says Sharon Kleyne. Water Is the Key to Longer Healthier Living.
Who wants to live longer? OK, don’t everybody raise your hands at once! At a time in our history when it’s hard to agree on anything, one thing we can all get together on is the desire to live a longer life. Of course, let’s qualify that by saying we mean a longer, healthy life.
Sharon Kleyne, Water Life Science® advocate and host of the nationally syndicated The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Warming and Your Health radio show on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, couldn’t agree more. Yet, Kleyne also cautions that unless people get a lot smarter about their health, it’s unlikely to happen.
Kleyne wants people to tune in to the simple truth that the older you get, the more water you need to stay healthy and alive. “In our fast-paced lives, people easily forget many important things,” says Kleyne, “but this oversight can kill you.” Kleyne says that everyone needs to drink 8 to 10 glasses of water a day. “Don’t just sip them,” Kleyne urges. “Drink them down completely to get the full benefit.”
Kleyne also wants people young and old, in shape or out of shape, to understand that optimum health can only be achieved if they take personal responsibility for replenishing the body’s water vapor, which is essential to all life. It’s literally in the air we breathe, and it is in the body, too. “The lenses of our eyes are 99% water,” says Kleyne; “your brain is 80% to 85 % water; your lungs are 75% to 80% water; your heart, liver, kidneys, skin and muscles are 70% to 75% water; your blood is 50% water. Even your bones are 25% water. What does that make you? It makes you a walking sponge! And what happens to a sponge when it’s set aside without water for too long? It dries out; it gets rigid and useless.”
Kleyne explains that the moment a baby leaves its mother’s watery womb, a process of evaporation begins that continues until death. To stay alive and thrive, a human must supplement diminishing body water vapor by drinking water and by misting skin and eyes with pure water. This is the only sustainable way to balance out the natural evaporation process and maintain good health.
Of course, other activities assist health, too. “Everyone needs to manage stress better,” Kleyne points out. “People need to learn how to relax while drinking lots of water, eating and sleeping properly, and breathing. Don’t forget to breathe!” “There is no longevity without hydration,” says Kleyne, “and that means water, water, water.” Kleyne is a fan of moderate exercise including Qi Gong, Tai Chi and yoga. She also suggests eating lots of leafy green vegetables and staying away from sugar and processed foods. “Sugar is your enemy,” says Kleyne.
