Water Evaporation & Dry Eye Educator Sharon Kleyne Teaches The Word ‘Dry’

Water Life Science® Creator Kleyne Explains Origins of ‘Dry’. Dry Eye Researcher Sharon Kleyne Shares Water Evaporation Insights.

Where does the word ‘dry’ originate, and what does it really mean?

According to Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science® and one of the world’s leading experts in dry eye disease, evaporation of body water vapor and evaporation of earth’s water vapor, the word ‘dry’ is Germanic. It comes from the Middle Low German ‘droge’ and the German ‘trocken’; ‘dry’ is also descended from the Dutch word, ‘droog’ and the Old English ‘dryge’ (adjective) and ‘drygan’ (verb). Today, ‘dry’ means without moisture (think dry clothes, a dry well, for instance).

“It would also be smart to associate ‘dry’ with the eyes,” says Kleyne. “A dry eye is not a healthy or happy eye.” 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®, teaches that the tear film of the eye is naturally 99 percent water. When the tear film loses as little as two percent of its moisture as a result of evaporation, dry eye disease symptoms occur. These symptoms include elevated levels of stress and anxiety, redness, swelling, blurred vision, itching and pus discharge.

The new water technology research of Kleyne and her colleagues at her research center have shown that the best way to counter the painful effects of dry eye symptoms is to supplement the eyes on a regular basis with fresh, pure water. One unique product that supplements the tear film, also developed by Kleyne, is Nature’s Tears® EyeMist, Nature’s Tears® EyeMist supplements the eye’s tear film with a patented micron-size spray from a personal, portable hand-held humidifier.

Kleyne also suggests that sufferers of dry eye drink eight-to-ten glasses of water a day, take regular breaks from computer work, television and on-line entertainment, and avoid as much as possible artificial heating and cooling environments, dust, smoke, sun glare, wind and allergies. Getting a lot of restful sleep helps to limit the damage of dry eyes, too.

Like knowing the origin and meaning of the word—dry—that names a disease that attacks more than 30 million Americans a year, Kleyne believes that the world can benefit from more proactive approaches to personal health. “The more we learn about body water evaporation, evaporation of earth’s atmosphere, supplementing the eye’s tear film and the prevalence of dry conditions throughout the world,” says Kleyne, “the more successful we will be preventing blindness, preserving healthy vision and tackling the world’s water crisis with the expectation of a satisfactory outcome.”

Sharon Kleyne Addresses The Word DRY

Water Life Science® Advocate Sharon Kleyne Bans ‘Dry’. Water Research Leader Sharon Kleyne Says ‘Dry’ Should Die.

If there is one word in the world that Water Life Science® advocate Sharon Kleyne would rub out of existence if she could, it would undoubtedly be the word Dry. She has a point. When you exert yourself and get dry mouth, all you crave is a drink of water. Thanksgiving just came and went. How much fun would your holiday have been if you had sat down to eat overcooked, dry turkey? Is there anything worse? How do you feel when your hair becomes dry and brittle? How are your dried out houseplants doing? Examples of the scourge that is dryness can go on and on, as Kleyne knows perhaps better than anyone on the planet.

For more than two decades, Sharon Kleyne’s research and new water technology discoveries at the company she founded, Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, have garnered international recognition for her as the global expert on dehydration of the eyes and skin as a result of over-evaporation of the body’s water vapor. “From the moment we leave our mother’s water-womb and are born,” Kleyne says, “we begin a process of evaporation that continues until death. In order to sustain excellent health,” she goes on, “one must supplement eyes and skin on a daily basis to replenish the evaporating water vapor. Everyone should remember this: excessive dryness equals death.”

Sharon Kleyne, host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on Voice of America, has educated people around the world about this health crisis for years. She has conducted bold research, discovered new water technology and offered practical solutions for the dryness of the body and of the earth itself. “We have to stay moist to live,” says Kleyne. “Dry is deadly!”

Two of the practical solutions that Sharon Kleyne came up with emerged from her own research center at Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®. One, Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water®, supplements dry skin due to water body vapor loss from evaporation. Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water® consists of Trade Secret tissue culture grade water with a pH that most closely equals the natural pH of human skin. Many independent scientists and research labs have tested this water and have found that the Trade Secret liquid is the rarest natural water in the world. Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water® contains no additives; it is painless, easy and fun to use. Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water® is applied to the skin, not as drops, but as a fine micron mist from a handheld, portable personal humidifier.

Sharon Kleyne points out that people globally are suffering more dry skin diseases and ailments than ever before. Like the eyes, Kleyne continued, “the skin (70% to 75% water) should be supplemented several times a day with tissue culture grade water.” Kleyne encourages people to carry with them and use Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water®. “We’re living, walking, breathing sponges. We are the water. We’re fluid,” Kleyne says.

Another great product supplements the eyes and battles the symptoms of Dry Eye Disease. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® for dry, dehydrated eyes is the only Trade Secret tissue culture grade water in the world to supplement over-evaporation of the eye’s tear film and checkmate Dry Eye Disease on earth. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® is also applied to the eyes by a personal hand-held humidifying device emitting a pure, pH balanced, 100% water micron mist for dry eyes. The product is endorsed by more than 22,000 ophthalmologists and optometrists nationwide and was successfully test-marketed in more than 70,000 outlets.

Sharon Kleyne wants people to keep in mind that they are 70% to 75% water. “We’re not 70% to 75% dry,” says Kleyne. “Our organs and skin are mostly water; the tear lenses of our eyes are 99% water! Without water supplementation,” Kleyne continues, “you can’t see; your organs can’t function, and you can’t breathe. You need that water vapor in the air to breathe. And you must stomp out the word dry and the concept of dryness whenever you can.”

Sun Protective Clothing

UV Sun Protective Clothing Can Save Your Life

Sharon Kleyne interview with Adam Perl (Higganum, CT), President of “Alex and Me,” UV sun protective clothing company. Sharon Kleyne Hour – Power of Water*, June 23, 2008.

Summer has arrived, and with it an increased emphasis on sun and sunburn protection. The first line of defense against the damaging effects of ultraviolet (UV) radiation from summer sun is the clothing you wear. Education, and intelligent choices about sun protective clothing, no matter what the season, could save your life.

In an age of global climate change and increasingly dry air, the dangers of skin and eye exposure to solar radiation (sunshine) are increasing and the need to protect yourself – every time you go in the sun – is also increasing. Solar radiation, especially Ultraviolet-B (UVB) radiation, can cause dry skin and dry eyes, damage the skin’s collagen to cause premature skin aging, and damage skin DNA to cause skin cancers such as basal cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma.

Sharon Kleyne, Host of the Sharon Kleyne Hour – Power of Water syndicated radio talk show, urges everyone to apply sunscreen every time you go in the sun, summer or winter (the lotion in sunscreen also helps skin retain water, further increasing resistance to UV radiation), and to purchase and wear sun protective clothing.

Sharon’s interview (paraphrased and abbreviated):

Sharon Kleyne: Today’s guest is Adam Perl, President of “Alex and Me,” a company specializing in the sale of sun protective clothing brands designed to protect skin from ultraviolet (UV) rays. Good morning, Adam. Tell us about “Alex and Me.”

Adam Perl: “Alex and Me” has been in business for eleven years. Alex is the child of the original owner and the original product line was for children.

S: How did you become interested in sun protective clothing?

A: We market clothing in Australia, where UV protection is critical because of ozone layer thinning. Children there are not allowed outdoors at recess without at least wearing a hat made of Ultraviolet Protective Fabric (UPF). Our first UPF product was a brand of children’s clothing for Australia. We now carry three dozen UPF brands, for adults and children. We sell a lot of outdoor recreation clothing, especially for the beach.

S: Teach us about UPF ratings for fabric.

A: There are two approaches to UV protection. Fabric can be chemically treated or the manufacturer can tighten the weave (thread count) and increase the thickness and density so less sunlight penetrates. With treated cotton, the embedded chemical lasts 20 to 30 washings. Synthetic fabrics are not usually treated.

S: Treated with what? Are the chemicals allergenic or dehydrating?

A: That’s a good question. As it happens, the protection in 90% of our products is based on weave. Originally, UPF clothing was very heavy and dark. Now it’s much lighter and brighter. Dark colors absorb more light and can get hot. Lighter colors reflect light and are cooler.

S: How do UPF fabrics differ from normal fabrics?

A: They aren’t noticeably different. And a tighter weave does not add value to the product. What does add value is the UPF label. Companies such as Columbia Outfitters and Patagonia are now starting to make UPF sportswear.

S: How much sun protection can fabrics offer?

A: A dry white t-shirt offers the same protection as sunscreen with an SPF (sun protection factor) of 10, which is moderate. A pair of blue denim jeans has an SPF of 1,700. Obviously, though, the jeans are hotter.

S: What is your most commonly purchased item?

A: Swim shirts, also called “rash guards.” They’re very light and look like surfer shirts. We also sell an enormous number of beach hats, with loose flaps over the neck and ears. We also have clothing for traveling, fishing, hiking, biking, gardening and other outdoor sports.

S: And your website?

A: http://www.alexandme.com.

S: Any final words?

A: Be proactive in the sun. Skin cancer from sun exposure may not show up for decades.

S: Thank you, Adam.
