China & Sharon Kleyne Fight Over-Evaporation Of Tear Film

Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® Battles Over-Evaporation of the Tear Film with Just a Mist® & Water Life Science®. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® Supplements & Replenishes the Over-Evaporated Tear Film.

Dry Eye Syndrome (DES) challenges more than 80 million Chinese every year. According to Sharon Kleyne, founder and research director of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, DES is made much worse by the over-evaporation of the eye’s tear film. “Evaporation is a natural process that begins at birth,” says Kleyne, “but healthy eyes require steady supplementation and replenishment with pure water.”

China’s infamous air pollution is well documented and also contributes to DES. Millions of citizens are plagued by dry eye symptoms such as itching, burning, swelling, dizziness, headaches and blurred vision. Making matters worse is the fact that as the population ages, DES incidents increase.

A 2014 major systematic review and meta-analysis conducted by The Department of Ophthalmology and the Department of Cardiovascular Ultrasound, both at The First Affiliated Hospital of China Medical University confirmed that DES (Dry Eye Syndrome) does indeed increase with age. For instance, the Shihpai Eye Study found that 33.7% of people aged 65 in Taiwan were symptomatic. Women were shown to be especially susceptible to DES by a ratio of 64 to 1 (64 women for every man). People with Type 2 diabetes were also more likely to suffer from DES. Other risk factors for DES include alcohol, smoking, allergies, contact lens wear, computer use and ocular and systemic medications. The study also highlighted regional differences. Western China and Northern China had many more cases of DES than Central, Eastern and Southern China. Harkening back to an earlier study which showed that there is a strong link between ultraviolet radiation and DES, the current study suggests that Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau of Western China has high altitudes, long hours of sunlight and strong ultraviolet radiation that contributes to DES.

Kleyne, also the host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, pointed to a disturbing finding three years ago that 17% of the Chinese population suffers from DES while today the number is closer to 25%. “Dry eye in China is out of control,” Kleyne says, “and so is blindness, which can occur as a result of unchecked dry eye conditions.”

Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is an invaluable asset in the rehabilitation of DES sufferers. It is easy to use and lacks side effects because it is pure Trade Secret tissue culture grade water without preservatives.

“Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is applied with a personal hand-held humidifying device,” says Kleyne. “The device emits a pure, pH balanced water in a patented micron-size mist. It supplements the eye’s tear film. “With Natures Tears® EyeMist®,” Kleyne says, “irritated eyes are supplemented with pure water and that’s what dry eyes need. Eye drops provide temporary chemical relief,” Kleyne adds, “and eye drops can become addictive and even make the dry eye condition worse.” Why? Because eye drops only trap water on the eye’s tear film; eye drops do not supplement the tear film.”

Just A Mist® Dry Eye Solution® Creates Chinese Eye Care Revolution

China Embraces Dry Eye Solution® Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®. Sharon Kleyne & China Collaborate with Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® against Dry Eye Disease.

Did you know that research analysis in China suggests that dry eye disease problems grow worse with age? The Shihpai Eye Study found that 33.7% of people aged 65 and older in Taiwan tested positive for the symptoms of dry eye disease. It was discovered that women are even more susceptible to dry eye disease than men. Another finding showed that people with Type 2 diabetes were also more likely to suffer from dry eye disease than men or women.

Other risk factors for dry eye disease include alcohol, smoking, contact lens wear, pollution, exposure to artificial environments, wind, sun glare, chlorinated pool water, computer use, gaming and ocular and systemic medications. The study also highlighted regional differences in the cases of dry eye disease. Western China and Northern China had many more cases of dry eye disease than Central, Eastern and Southern China. Harkening back to a previous study which showed that there is a strong link between ultraviolet radiation and dry eye disease, the current study suggests that Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau of Western China has high altitudes, long hours of sunlight and strong ultraviolet radiation that contributes to dry eye disease.

“These findings are all red flags,” said Sharon Kleyne, host of the nationally syndicated The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® on VoiceAmerica, “but there is an option that is already beginning to provide relief in China.”

John D. Ng, MD, MS, FACS, Chief—Ocular Plastics, Orbital and Reconstructive Surgery and a professor at Oregon Health & Science University is also certain that he’s found the best solution available in today’s marketplace. “Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®,” said Ng, “has been an invaluable asset in rehabilitation of patients. I have been recommending this just a mist® treatment for over 17 years and can attest to its benefit, its ease of use and lack of side effects as it is pure water without preservatives.”

“Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is applied with a personal hand-held humidifying device,” said Kleyne. “The device emits a pure, pH balanced, 100% Trade Secret tissue culture grade water in the form of a patented micron-size mist. It supplements the eye’s tear film. “With Natures Tears® EyeMist®,” Kleyne said, “tired and irritated eyes are supplemented with pure water and that’s what dry eyes need. Eye drops provide temporary chemical relief,” Kleyne continued, “but they can become addictive and even make the dry eye condition worse.” Why? Because eye drops only trap water on the eye’s tear lens; they do not supplement the tear lens or the moisture (the tears) around it.” Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® does supplement both,” and dry eye sufferers in China are delighted about it.

Kleyne, founder and research director at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, has taught people around the world that dry eye disease is a major tear deficiency disorder. Dry eye disease causes discomfort, visual problems and instability of the tear film, which is naturally 99% water. This tear film instability is especially dangerous for it can lead to damage of the ocular surface. In many cases in which the condition is not addressed, the end result can be blindness.

In a country the size of China, rampant dry eye disease is a serious matter. Kleyne shared that a major systematic review and meta-analysis conducted by The Department of Ophthalmology and the Department of Cardiovascular Ultrasound at The First Affiliated Hospital of China Medical University concluded that 17% of the Chinese population suffers from dry eye disease. “We are working hard to shrink that percentage,” said Kleyne, who will not rest until dry eye disease is eradicated.

Dry Eye Disease A Major Health Problem In China Says Sharon Kleyne

Water Life Science® Creator Sharon Kleyne Brings Dry Eye Relief to China. Dry Eye Disease in China Afflicts 17 Percent of the Population.

At places such as Guangzhou Aier Hospital, the largest eye clinic in Guangzhou, ophthalmologists and research scientists are battling one of the great health challenges in China today—dry eye disease. The president of the clinic himself has been treated for dry eye! Dr. Wang Zheng, Medical Director at the clinic, believes that the prevalence of dry eye disease can be attributed to a high rate of Rosacea, an inflammatory diet consisting of too much red meat and the country’s challenging air pollution.

Latest research shows that 17 percent of the mainland Chinese population suffers from dry eye disease. Among them, females and elders are more likely to suffer from dry eye. Dry eye is a relatively common disease of the tear film and ocular surface that results in eye discomfort, visual disturbance, and often ocular surface damage. Severe dry eye can cause corneal ulceration, opacification and even blindness.

Sharon 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®, knows that the simplest way to alleviate dry eye, eyelid and skin around the eye symptoms and restore tear film moisture is with Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, a product she developed in her research center at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® in Grants Pass, Oregon.

Kleyne, whose research in water and new water technology is respected by scientists, researchers, teachers and physicians around the world, has visited China and has worked with the Chinese government, scientists and researchers to bring Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® to mainland China. Now thousands of Chinese citizens a day purchase and apply Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® to alleviate and soothe dry eye symptoms.

Nature’s Tears® Eyemist® is a 100 percent pure Trade Secret tissue culture grade water without chemicals or additives, Kleyne explains. It is applied to the eye as a patented micron-size mist from a personal, portable handheld humidifier that is sanitary and easy to use. Kleyne says that it is exciting and a privilege to bring dry eye disease relief to millions of Chinese citizens with Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, a product without competition in the global marketplace.

Dr. Yuan Fang & Sharon Kleyne Discuss Water And Cancer Research

Dr. Yuan Fang Directs State-of-the-Art Research Foundation in China. Dr. Fang Supports Nature’s Tears® Eyemist® for Dry Eyes.

Dr. Yuan Fang, an internationally respected researcher in geonome studies, is making great strides at the foundation he created in China to study cancer. With the support of essential government funding, Fang’s research over the years has led to breakthroughs in cancer treatment and opened the doors into treating other diseases as well. A genome, Fang explained, is an organism’s complete set of genetic instructions. By studying the sequence of genomes, one can possibly predict developmental outcomes and find cures for illness and disease. Through all his research, Fang’s appreciation of the fundamental role water plays in all health issues has greatly expanded.

Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, whose own water research and discovery of new water technologies earned the respect of researchers, scientists and physicians around the world, noted Fang’s special concentration on the brain, which is 80% to 85% water. “Every organ needs water to function properly,” said Fang. “When organs become dehydrated due to excessive evaporation, they are compromised and serious health issues can and usually will be the result. Just as organs need water to function,” said Fang, “cells need water to function as well. Genetically, we’re functioning better when we’re properly hydrated.”

Water is necessary for all life and for all cures, too. Kleyne, host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, also noted Fang’s breakthrough research on the ebola virus. Fang said that the immune system is seriously affected by evaporation of body water. Fang also said that all aspects of one’s life are impacted by water and the lack of water. “One can’t sleep well without enough water,” he said. “One can’t function as well on a daily basis if one is dehydrated due to over-evaporation of body water vapor. If you are hydrated,” Fang added, “you always feel better when you wake up and when you are making your way through your day.”

For these reasons, Fang appreciates Kleyne’s discovery of Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® for supplementation of the eye’s tear film, which is 99 percent water. “The tear film is where water so easily evaporates,” said Fang, “and it needs to be supplemented on a regular basis to avoid dry eye symptoms.” Fang is delighted that Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is on its way to China where dry eye disease and blindness are running rampant.

China Partners & Sharon Kleyne Battle Dry Eye Disease

China’s Air Quality Crisis Sparks Dry Eye Epidemic. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® in China Provides Relief for Millions of Dry Eye Sufferers.

Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® and an international research expert on dry eye disease and eye water evaporation, is well aware of China’s serious dry eye problem. A frequent visitor to China and host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, says that more than 175 million Chinese are currently affected by dry eye disease, with more swelling this number every day.

Kleyne explained that dry eye disease is a disorder of the tear film, which is 99 percent water, as a result of deficient tear production or excessive evaporation. This condition often leads to damage to the ocular system and even blindness. Symptoms include pain, discomfort, headaches, redness, swelling and poor vision. Depression, anxiety, strained home lives and missed days at work are also common in people suffering from dry eye disease. “The prevalence of dry eye in China is 17% of the total population of approximately 1.5 billion people,” Kleyne said. “This means that approximately 38,3000,000 Chinese are going to suffer from dry eye disease in 2017.”

At one time, China’s efforts to clean up its air pollution and deal with other factors contributing to the rise of dry eye disease were frustrated by the lack of a product that could bring sustained relief to sufferers. But cause for frustration greatly diminished when China and Kleyne agreed to bring Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® to the Mainland. Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®’s licensing partners have been working closely with pharmaceutical companies and medical research centers in China and with China’s government to facilitate the launch of Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, the only product of its kind in the world to supplement the tear film.

Tear film water supplementation is the only purpose of Nature’s Tear® EyeMist®. The product consists of Trade Secret tissue culture grade fresh featuring a perfect pH balance. The water is delivered to the eye in the form of a patented, micron-size mist from a personal, portable hand- held humidifier. The mist droplets emulate natural, unpolluted humidity that the tear film readily absorbs. Kleyne’s Research Center discovered that two to five nanoliters of supplemental water to the eyes will supplement the tear film and soothe dry eye symptoms. If used often enough, Nature’s Tear® EyeMist® will also enhance breathing because of the pure water mist in the immediate atmosphere, an added benefit in air conditions challenged by pollution.

According to Kleyne, the policy of the Government of China is to encourage the availability of personal health protection devices that allow individuals to defend against air pollution while the government works to alleviate the sources of the pollution. Kleyne is proud of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®’s role in this important collaboration and looks forward to expanding the partnership. In fact, reports from China are encouraging as thousands of units of Nature’s Tear® EyeMist® have been sold in the first weeks of the product’s arrival in the country.

Media Advocate & Director of Global Dragon TV Rose Hong Promotes Natural Health Initiatives

Rose Hong Lives Her Dream Expanding TV Media Imprint. Global Dragon TV Spreads Word about Wellness & Improved Medical Opportunities.

​China, perhaps more than any other country in the world, is a nation on the move and no one is more aware of it than the director of Global Dragon TV, Rose Hong http://www.GlobalDragonTV.com. Hong, a first generation immigrant, came to the U.S. as a young student. It almost didn’t happen. In order to make it possible for Hong to come to America, her father and mother depleted their life savings, using the money to buy her a one-way plane ticket. After that, there were just enough funds left to support Hong until her scholarship money kicked in. To this day, Hong refers to her first trip to the U.S. as “a life changing journey”.

From that point on, it was almost as if Hong were on a fast track to success. In the States, Hong diligently worked non-stop, opening windows and doors to the career she wanted most. Enrolling at the University of Maryland’s Graduate School on a full scholarship, Hong studied English literature. Having grown increasingly interested in mass communications and mass media, the enterprising scholar earned a master’s degree in the field. After ther graduation, Hong worked for two decades in international media business and with several federal agencies including the Department of Treasury.

In 1997, Hong’s visionary energy once more took hold. Seeing an ever-growing “need for Chinese and health related media content,” Hong assembled a group of partners and launched Global Dragon TV. Today, Global Dragon TV offers programming seven days a week, 24 hours a day and reaches over 30 countries worldwide. Hong herself hosts and produces two weekly TV shows, American Odyssey and Whole Health Living.

Giving back to the country that has so generously granted her education and scholarship opportunities Hong has adopted is an important part of her life mission.

Hong has participated various medical missions overseas and is a board member of Montero Medical Mission, which provides medical and education outreach by sending US volunteer doctors to locations around the world.

Never forgotten her root and where she came from, Hong’s love and knowledge of Chinese culture heritage and tradition enables her to create a weekly television show “Whole Health Living,” which focuses on using traditional Chinese medicine, nutrition and exercise for disease prevention and wellness.

“China invented paper, silk, rubber, gunpowder and medical practices that changed the world, and will play a vital role in the coming millennium,” Hong said. “My favorite book is a classic, The Art of War by Sun Tsu. Written in the 5th century B.C., The Art of War is studied at West Point and by business leaders all over the planet. It is a philosophy book that is as true now as the day it was written.” Hong also praised a book that all Chinese medical practitioners consult:

“Yellow Emperor’s Inner Canon”, the earliest and most important written work of Traditional Chinese Medicine,
compiled over 2,200 years ago.

“With the aging population and rising costs of medical care worldwide, Chinese medicine’s wisdom and focus on prevention and wellness will help to ease this crisis.” Hong said.

Hong sees China, like the rest of the world, facing a global environmental and water crisis. She is committed to greater education and health opportunities through mass media and is doing much to enhance the lives of viewers everywhere.

Sharon Kleyne Cites China’s Chengdu As Model Water Developer

Water Advocate Sharon Kleyne Calls Attention to UNIDO-China Cooperation. United Nations Sponsors BOT Projects in Developing Countries.

When China’s economic reforms began in 1978, Chengdu, provincial capital of Sichuan Province in southwest China, was one of many cities that swiftly experienced fresh water shortages. Population skyrocketed (from half-a-million people to over 9 million in twenty-five years) and existing infrastructure was strained to the breaking point. Obviously, the city desperately needed new water facilities and rejuvenated existing ones. Water Educator Sharon Kleyne observed that this situation was and is facing communities all over the world and we need leaders and researchers to step up to find viable solutions to the world’s fresh water crisis.

Enter, at the invitation of the Chinese government, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO). UNIDO partnered with China’s Ministry of Light Industry to offer foreign investment programs in Chengdu and other provinces. UNIDO offered technical support and mentored China in absorbing foreign investment. UNIDO also supported the State Planning Commission as it created regulations to establish standard concession agreements for Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) projects in the road, power and water sectors.

This led to one of the first three BOT projects in China. Beginning in 1999, Chengdu #6 Water Plant was designed and created by a joint venture made up of the French Companie Generale Des Eaux (CGE) and the Japanese company, Marubeni, which was granted the rights to operate the plant for 18 years. Thanks to this cooperative project, Chengdu and developing industrial zones in the region benefited from new technology that processed treated water in a cost-effective manner. The project also included best practices for the management and operation of water treatment facilities. This investment in clean water was essential to the health and development of Chengdu and its entire neighboring region. An Asian Development Bank Report http://www.gsep-ppp.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/china-chengdu.pdf stated that “without the public-private partnership, the city of Chengdu would not have been able to expand its water supply capacity so quickly or be equipped to meet the demand for a growing economy.”

UNIDO’s goals through 2030 include its Agenda for Sustainable Development and in particular to Sustainable Development Goal 9—Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation.

Water advocate Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, applauds the UN’s earlier and current efforts through its UNIDO program, yet she is not satisfied that the international organization is doing all that it might to make a more positive impact on the water crisis facing the planet. “The UN could do a lot more in terms of water education and new water research, especially among young people,” Kleyne said. “We can’t be satisfied with the UN or anyone else until we find workable solutions for the world’s water crisis.”
